My heart is broken into a million pieces, Bigma you left me feeling so lost and empty, I don't know what I am going to do daily now, iam so use to taking care of you, I know you were my grandmother. but I feel like I loss my baby😥 You were my baby!😭😭😭 Iam weak empty,lost, emotional and in a lot of pain, but iam not angry, because you were truly a child of God😭 I've heard you talking to God so many, so many times. I know you had a relationship with the Lord, you always acknowledged the Lord throughout the day , even in the midnight hours, when everyone else were asleep. Iam going to miss you dearly. but I know God will be with me, I thank God you lived a healthy and beautiful 107 years. You wanted to stay in your own home to live your life to its end, and I made sure you did just that!! NO NURSING HOME FOR MY NAME SAKE !!!! Bigm you once told me that if love the Lord with all of my heart,soul, and strength, He will always be my guide, and will never leave me. I wish to be like you, live a long and spiritual life. I want to serve the Lord like you did, because I saw how He blessed you. THANK YOU MY BABY ,BIGMA! I WILL CARRY YOU IN MY HEART UNTIL GOD DO ME LIKE HE DID YOU! WISPER IN MY EAR AND PUT A SMILE ON MY FACE. Rest In Peace my baby❤💛😥
