My dearest Ella,
I can’t believe that I’m writing the last note you will ever receive from me. By the time you read this, a whole year will have passed since my death. I pray that my notes have helped you find your way. My hope is that you will read them over and over and that they provide a compass that will always lead you in the right direction.
I will leave you with one last thought. From the moment I saw you, Ella, I loved you. I was blessed to have you in my life and honored to be your grandmother. I pray that your life is filled with many blessings and that your triumphs, not your tragedies, define you. Be well, Ella, and dance, even when the music stops, I hope you dance my sweet child.
Love you bunches and bunches, Grandma
