  9. Tonia, I didn’t know that we had got as close as I realized til now. You should be over there sitting on your bed, drawing, coloring or playing one of your games, BINGO BLITZE was your favorite. I know that we didn’t see eye to eye on some things. But that’s what mother/daughter in law would do. I know that we would be sitting here in our living room watching TV and playing with Owen. Let one of us get up to go to another room, we’d miss each other. Tonia, R.I.P. and give Brynleigh a big hug and kiss from grandma. I miss you and I love you. And I won’t forget all of our long private chats. I’m gone, I love you
