    Sophia was my grandma but more like my mother. Her and my grandfather took me in at two years old and raised me for about ten years. My grandmother was an amzing woman and did everything she could for me. I honestly dont think anybody on this planet could love me as much as she did. It still doesnt see real that shes gone. I love and miss you grandma and will see you again one day.

Please share your thoughts ...
