Dear Rice Family
I had the most beautiful vivid dream of your Gram last night. We were holding each other’s hands and looking deep into each other’s eyes Your Gram’s eyes were sparkling and full of life.
I told your Gram that she was the most beautiful and caring Mother and Grandmother that I knew.
Her warm delicate hands comforted my heart; we both cried knowing we would no longer see each other in this world.
Visits to Gram’s house were always welcomed with open arms, patience,laughter and her delicious spaghetti
I will,forever,everyday, have gratitude for having experienced such a beautiful and caring soul in my life. Namaste
