In Loving Memory of My Grandmother
My sweet Grandmother Wilkerson passed away one year ago today. She was the best Grandmother! If only everyone could have a Grandmother like her. She gave so much love to her family. She had such a strong testimony of the gospel, and was a great example to all of her family. Born and raised in South Carolina, she had a sweet southern accent and was the best example of a true lady. I miss kissing her soft cheeks, I miss talking to her, for her mind was sharp right up until she passed on. She was always there for me and my family, through good and hard times. I am thankful to have so many memories of times spent with her and Granddaddy. I loved visiting them in their home in Columbia, South Carolina. Before she died, she told me and my cousin Jenny to never forget South Carolina. I was lucky enough to be born there and even though I did not live there long I will always consider it home. South Carolina has a special place in my heart because of my Grandparents.
I want to thank my Mother and Father for all the sacrifices they made by taking care of her in her last 6 years. I know how happy my Grandmother is now to be with my Granddaddy. I love you so much Grandmother! There is rarely a day that goes by that I don't think of you. Until we meet again.....
Love Your Bonnie Blue
