    You’ve been on my mind heavy this morning Grandma Doris. I have faith and believe that you know that I am writing this. I hope you’re finally at peace and comfortable up in heaven. No more oxygen no more inhalers no more 20+ meds a day. And most importantly no more DIMENTIA! I am so thankful for the fact that you still knew who I was before you passed away. I thank God for that often. Thank you for EVERYTHING YOU EVER DID FOR ME. Whether it was letting me live in your house, taking me bowling as a kid; coming up to my house in Saginaw every Halloween to go trick or treating with me my other grandma Shirley my dad and mom. You and I were EXTREMELY CLOSE growing up I know 9 out of 10 times every weekend id be coming to spend the night with you! Playing Uno skipbo phase ten and dominoes. Taking me to play putt putt mini golf and when I was older and tall enough to reach the pedals you’d lemme drive your cars on the back roads. You always rode in style too. From the Lincoln Mark 8; the GMC Envoy SLT; Buick Enclave CXL; Cadillac XT5 & the Chevrolet Blazer. Only one time was I ever allowed to drive the hotrod (1937 Chevrolet Coupe with the Corvette Engine in it) and that was from in the grass in front of the little barn to the driveway and to the big barn lol. I’m so sorry I wasn’t able to come to your funeral/memorial service. I had legal issues I was dealing with but I know you’d be proud to know I successfully completed my probation back in January of 2024. And the fact that I celebrated 2 years clean and sober May 20th 2022 was my sober date. But I fully believe that you are able to see what I’m writing here and when I’m thinking of you. I love you Grandma and I miss you like crazy. I keep ur memorial card on my mirror right above your ashes so I see you every day. I love you. Ryan Sterling Hardin your youngest grandson.
