    Rip Granny,
    We will miss you dearly. You have touched our lives more than can be explained. We will see you again someday until that day please take care of Gabriel for us.
    Even though we will miss you so much and wish you were still here we know that the Lord needed an angel in heaven and you will be watching over us.
    You will be forever in our hearts. We cannot wait to hear you call us honey boy and honey girl again. We love you so much.
    Until we meet again someday,
    Your grandchildren,
    Justin and Rebecca Favara
