To my Gramcracker

I would give just about anything to share one last laugh, spend one last day up north or play one last game of Rummy with you. Even just one more minute.

I know you are no longer in pain and you’re in a better place, but I miss you so much I selfishly wish for just a little longer. Just one last goodbye.

I’m trying my hardest to stay strong. You were the strongest woman I ever met and I know you would want me to be strong too, but it’s far too easy to forget to be strong. You were probably the best person I have ever known and have been such an important part of my life for as long as I can remember.

I have always raved about how delicious your spaghetti is, and it truly is the best, but in all honesty you could have served me a plate of rocks and I wouldn’t have cared. Just being with you was enough. You made every moment special and brought out the best in me. You made me feel so proud about even my smallest accomplishments and made me the best person I could be.

I write for a living and I can’t even find a way to put into words just how awesome you are and how much you will be missed.

I was lucky to have you around as long as I did, but it still wasn’t enough time. I fucking hate cancer.

My heart feels a little broken. I will always love you. We will always be Rosie’s Rebels. You will never be forgotten.

Rest in peace Gramcracker.

Love you forever,
