Oh my goodness. I am so sorry grandma Rose I had no clue. I wish you the best of luck through the rest of your journey throughout life. I miss you so much and miss you so much. Thank you for everything you have done for me Rudy and Karen. I would not be here without the love you showed me throughout those years of hardships. You helped me find my forever family, and find my purpose in life and you played such a huge role in that. I also wanted to say hi to jordan who made those tough situation a life lesson. I love you all. Thank you again
