Geeg, what a wild ride you’ve had! What a family you’ve raised! Everything about you was such a breath of fresh air! You knew how to cut up, you knew how to take a joke too! I miss those introspective conversations we used to have..I miss those times we cried together and wiped each other tears, telling the other that we were beautiful.. So many memories I have with many holidays we got to sit back and watch the family grow, and you smiled and said, “I helped build this family, and look how beautiful it’s become!” I couldn’t agree more, Geeg. You were so happy and proud, I truly enjoyed seeing you like that! Since day 1, you’ve been nothing but kind, loving, hospitable, accepting, understanding, and open with and to me. You were my grandmother as well, same as you accepted me as one of you’re own. I’m happy to have gotten the pleasure to know you, and you will forever be loved! I miss you a lot Geeg..but we’ll meet again, someday for sure! Love you lots❤️
