Hey grandma , it\'s me CJ the one and only . Lately I been connecting to my higher self & oh my eyes were beat up the day you left. 2020 was a terrible year followed by 2021 but when I got that news In august 2021 words can\'t describe how I felt. I don\'t know if we can swear on here or not but f it. Life been kicking ass just like that martial arts you like. I do for one would love to get into doing that . I swear I got passed down some of your features like the protecting family and pets loving. Although jr didn\'t pick up that trait as he\'s allergic to cats πŸ˜‚ Anywho I\'m big on protecting family as with some martial arts to go with that no one can stop me . Expect you . Ah , what I\'ll do to have a life where you\'re involved and my siblings , nieces , nephews , cousins , family friends they\'re all welcome because a life with friends / family doing things is better than just boring ol by yourself and I say that will all due respect , we all deserve our own lil room , our own lil space. And adding on , I would die to have a life like that. I\'m already reincarnated or something as study\'s shows , I have two birthmarks and my bro has one on his face. Trying to make the most out of life . Miss you . Time has been flying. Never thought I say I miss school tho although school kicked my butt all because I decided not to kick school butt. If it wasn\'t for me being a bigger person I would have been in alternate schools. Anyways that\'ll wrap up this conversation. I\'m currently fasting and trying to get my mind together.

G.G I love you so much you were the best granny a granddaughter could ask for you were sooo sweet but gansta at the same time lol πŸ˜‚ . I remember all the prep talks we had for hours then would turn around and we\'d be laughing at nothing all night long , I remember how happy u and papa was & I also remember all the times you would piss him off and he\'d throw big bowls of spaghetti around the kitchen but before the night was over y\'all made up .. I remember all the times you\'d rock me to sleep , I remember all the times that I could talk to u about what ever and u told me I could talk to u about everything & u would never tell my mom . I remember all the times u would cook breakfast and clean up at the same time mopping all the floors with all the windows open even when it was cold asl at 5 o\'clock in the morning, or how u would wake me up for school and we\'d talk until I had to walk out the door and when I got home we\'d have deep conversations about whatever ..Anytime u had it so did I . I remember when u first met your 2 oldest great grandkids and you\'d hold and play w them all day never wanting to put them down … last time I saw u you were on your death bed but the time before that u were up walking & talking saying \" I\'m hungry baby are u ? \" I really don\'t think it\'s fair that u left so early there isn\'t a day that goes by that I don\'t think of u .. I wish I could give u another hug or kiss .. but I knew you were ready to go home when I showed u that pic of your great grandkids and u started crying, u knew it was your time and u had accepted it already , but I never did I was never ready for u to just leave me like that . I know your my Guardian angle watching over me guiding my every step & I know u won\'t lead me the wrong way . I love and miss u always , 4ever in my heart your oldest granddaughter Shietta , keep flying high G.GπŸ™πŸ½πŸ’œπŸ•Š

Theodora was a very strong and brave woman. In the five years I knew her, I realized that she loved her family and true friends unconditionally. When I went to visit her in the hospital with Julia on thanksgiving 2018, she said I was kinfolks which meant a lot to me. On August 31st when the lord called her home, heaven gained a great warrior. R.I.P. Theodora… you are loved and missed.
