Definitely my grandmother. It sounds so cheesy I know, but she was like a bright light in a very dark tunnel. She believed in me, encouraged me, and loved me when it felt like nobody else did/would/could. She was like a mother to me. I lost her in 2007 and I miss her every single day.
The craziest part is that we weren’t even blood relatives. She was my step-dad’s mother, but that never mattered. She made me feel special every single day.
