Dear Aunt Lib,dear grandma,
I haven't seen you since 10 years, life has changed so much. My daughter Siena is almost 2 years old, I was hoping you would get to see her next year. Even if we didn't visit you that often, you were the grandma we never had. We have so many nice memories that we will never FORGET. I still have the teddy you gave me 10 years ago. We miss you and will always love you. Karina & Siena from Germany

I grew up knowing Aunt Lib as as grandma. She was very special in many ways. Although I could not spend a lot of time with her or talk to her very often, she was the greatest grandmother and especially godmother I could have wished for.br Dear Grandma, I will miss you very much and I'll never forget you.

A light has gone out of my life. I will miss her a lot. She will always have a special place in our hearts.She was an important part of our lives. She adopted my children as "grandkids". She has finally been reunited with her family.

I am so glad I got to see you one more time, and that you got to meet my daughter. You lived a long and very productive life, and you will be missed by those who loved you.
