See you soon Lola

My grandmother just slept and she never woke up. So very her. Very conservative, keeps to herself, simple and doesn't want to make a fuss. I'm a lola's boy. I'm the first grandson on her side and I think she never doted any of her grandchildren the way she did on me. I remember asking her to buy for me a P5000 sneakers at a time when you can buy a decent branded one. But I used that sneaker until it was dust. I was really close with my lola. She's really my fan. She's so proud of everything I do even though she couldn't understand half of it. Lola loves it when you need her. She loves to cook and makes the meanest fruit salad. When I was staying with her I remember she would prepare the mosquito net for me. When I studied in that school in the mountains she traveled 6 hours to visit me. She brought me food and stuff. I attended a boyscout jamboree once and she gave me lots of pocket money because she was worried I might not eat. She's really the perfect lola for me. I even named my vintage designer resale business for her, Casilda's Closet. I could go on and on about her. I'm sad my lola is moving on to the next life and going in another journey. But then again I'm happy because I know she's ready to move on. If my time comes I can't wait to see her again.

This is Garry manoy. We all love lola so much and we are all gonna miss her. Just her presence in the house makes family gatherings complete. She was really peaceful when she took off.
