My mom, Mary Mort, didn't even tell me that my grandma had passed away. Granted she didn't even come to me when I was on my deathbed...

Grandma, sorry I wasn't there to properly see you off into the next life. I wasn't aware and I hope you can forgive me for that.

Love you much and will miss you greatly.

Love Ricky
