    I will never forget the good times we had together when we went fishing and crabbing off the Biloxi pier. We had so much fun catching theam crabs and fish. My heart is breaking into because I no longer have you. I’m sorry for all the time we lost. I thank you for the beautiful granddaughter you have given me. She is a part of you. And I’ll always have you through her. Every time she smiles I see you. I will always be there for her. I love you and I miss you. Mom
