Branches fall from the trees. The branch that fell cannot return to the tree. Instead, it will sink into the ground and be used for soil. But though it feels like the branch is gone, the branch will always stand. 


I will always know that you are with me, and when you go, I won't be sad. Instead, I will be glad that you are at home.


And one more thing, can you watch over me and guide me to the right path? And say hello to the ones I never met. I will always be strong. I love you great-grandma.


Love, Francene
