I never thought a word so simple could mean so much.
In those final moments you would ask where my smile was,
or simply tell me to smile. I never thought it would make such
a big impact on my life, but clearly it did.
Those first few weeks without you I would remind myself to smile
because I knew you were in a better place, and I knew that if you
could have told me one thing before you left us it would have been
to always keep smiling. I now realize you knew exactly what the future
had in store , and you were simply preparing me. I thank you for that.
To this day I will never forget to smile and I owe that to you. I would
like you to know that each and every time someone reminds me to smile
I Instantly think of you. The first couple times it nearly put me in tears. I
now cherish those moments we had and will forever hold them dear to my
heart. I will love you forever and like you for always.
Love your smiling granddaughter.
