It’s taken me till today, November 12, to have the strength to pull up your obituary. I still can’t believe you are gone, there isn’t a single day that passes where you are not on my mind. You were literally the most amazing grandma any grandchild could ever ask for. Anything we wanted we got or you tried your best to make it happen. But my love for you was not based on the money you spend on me. It was based on the time you spent with me. The memories you made with me. The laughs and smiles you gave me. All the lunch and dinner and shopping trips we took all over hendersonville and Asheville and anywhere else we could go to. You always believed in me when I felt like no one else did. I love and miss you so much grandma! You’d be so proud of me; I promised you I would do my best in college… A/B honor roll!! 🙂 I love you!
Dear Moore family, please accept my sincere sympathy. May you look forward to the time when the Bible says that “(God) will wipe out every tear from their eyes, and death will be no more, neither will morning nor outcry nor pain be anymore. The former things have passed away” (Revelation 21:4). I hope that this promise and loving memories bring you comfort.
My sincere sympathy,
We are so sorry about your loss.

You are all in my thoughts! It was an absolute pleasure taking care of this sweet woman, even if for such a short time. You could not have given her any better or more loving care!
