You would have been amazed and humbled by all the outpouring of love and admiration for you, our beautiful, kind, loving mother. We selfishly wanted more time with you, but know in our hearts you are happy with our heavenly father and we can only hope to be as good a person as you are so that we can all be together again some day. There is a new saint in heaven.

Your loving daughter,

I will always remember my grandma as a loving woman who cared for everyone. She was someone that I looked up to. I loved her singing and alway compared her to Patsy Cline. She was so beautiful inside and out. She loved to hold family dinners at her house to get everyone together for the Holidays. She Always made her famous ham gravy that none of us will ever forget. I don’t recall her ever missing one of my children birthday partys. She will be missed and thought about regularly. I love you grandma.

I loved your mom. She as one of the first adults to treat us kids as equals. Whenever she asked me how I was doing, she really wanted to know! I remember her singing Your Cheatin’ Heart a bunch of times for different occasions. I am grateful that I got to see her and your dad this year over at mom’s. Lot’s of great memories. I’m prayin’ for your dad and you guys,

I was so sorry to hear about the passing of your mother. I definitely know what you are going through. I lost mom in April of this year. I’ll keep you and your family in my prayers. It is an empty spot in your heart that never seems to go away. Hang in there and if there is anything I can do, please call me.
