A Letter for Gram

Buried in an imprisoning casket
but never forgotten through
the past fifteen years.
I love you now more than ever
and your strength has embraced
my sorrow and guilt!

I love you so much, Gram
and you are greatly missed!
You are my support that
gets me up a large flight
of stairs and a calmness when
I feel overcrowded and overwhelmed
by life's challenges, pitfalls,
destruction, pain, and insecure discontent!

I truly owe my soul to you!
Thank you so very much 
for all you have been and
will be in my life.

You are the lighthouse that flickers its
illuminating light to guide me home,
even though I am a million miles
away from reality.

Love Always, Julie
