RIP Granny...



Yesterday, my Granny went to heaven. My granny was 96 years old, and she passed in her sleep. She lived a good life, and I will miss her so much.

I know she is smiling down today because she is reunited with her husband, whom passed even before I was born. I can't imagine how happy she is right now. She is probably doing the world's biggest happy dance :)
