I am so blessed that was able to bring my children and my husband to meet my wonderful grandmother. At that time I did not know that my see you later hugs and kisses would end up being goodbye hugs and kisses. I am forever grateful to have known you and to have loved you. So until we meet again rest in the loving arms of our almighty God. I love you Momo! Love always CeCe.
