Dear grandma...

Dear Grandma,
Meg and I went to see our movie tonight. I know you and I had originally planned on seeing it together since it was one of our favorites. You know which one I am talking about, Charlotte's Web. Of course we used to watch the cartoon version and this one was live action, but I remember those times well. I even remember you reading some of it to me at bed time whenever we would stay over at the house. I'll never forget those times. I always looked forward to coming over when Charlotte was on. It seemed like it was always close to Christmas and I remember we would come over in our pajamas ready to watch it. You'd pop some popcorn and we would sit there together watching it with the wood stove crackling in the background and the lava lamp bubbling which created just enough light. I still have the lava lamp and turn it on almost every night as it reminds me of you.
I really wish you could have been there with us tonight to see Charlotte's Web, I think you would have liked it. Although you weren't there to see it with us, know that as we watched it I was thinking of you and all the great times we had. I miss you grandma, Christmas wasn't the same without you this year, but I am glad you aren't suffering anymore. Well this has been long enough. I just wanted to let you know I miss you and was thinking of you tonight.
Love you,

Thanks Matt! Your letter helped me remember my Great Grandma Lichty. I miss her a lot too. I'm grateful to know that I will see her one day again. I can't wait for the day when we are reunited in Heaven. I'm thankful for the hope that Jesus has given us.
