To my sweet, loving, caring grandmother… I am deeply shattered. I know you are in a better place now. I could only imagine the smile on your face when you seen grandpa for the first time again, and the rest of the family. You always cracked a huge smile when anyone came over to visit. I am so grateful for all the pictures, memories, and time spent together. I will always and forever cherish every little thing about you. Thank you for always being there for me, no matter what. You were one strong woman, through everything that came in your way… because of that, I strive to be strong just like you! Thank you for being the best grandma, I would never ask for better, because I would choose you over and over again. I could sit here and write so much more, but it’s endless! You are my big banana, and I love you MORE. ? Love little banana ?

My sincerest condolences to your family. I’m a friend of Cheyenne. 3 worked together for 3 years, and of coarse we talked about our lived outside of work. So I know how much she loved and adored her grandma. Sadly missed, but she’s in a better place& reunited with her loving husband. May she Rest In Peace.
