|We love you Mom-Mom...|
This memorial website was created in the memory of our loved one, Alvira Ritchey, 89, born on October 30, 1922 and passed away on April 6, 2012. We will remember "Mom-Mom" forever.
"Aunt alvira and uncle melvin i miss you so much even tho i only got to see you a few times in my whole entire life i still rememeber. I wish i wouldve got to see you more. Miss u so much."
"She is so missed, there is not a day that goes by that something, I see, hear or do makes me think of her."
"Mom mom has been sorely missed this year by me. I miss her calling on holiday's asking about our daughter. I miss her telling us about family I only know by name but never met in person. I miss the Florida chat about the family. I miss her voice on the answering machine. She is one special lady that I will miss until I leave this earth. I am so glad I knew her and that she was in my life."
"We miss mom mom and hope she knows we are celebrating her 90 birthday in spirit with her."
"Yesterday, we mourned the loss but celebrated the life of Aunt Alvira."
"It was a joy and privilege to know Aunt Alvira and she will be greatly missed. Our thoughts and prayers are with all her family and just know that her and Uncle Melvin are together in heaven."
"I thought of Mom-Mom on Saturday, I was making a recipe she had taught us. I miss her."
"I really do miss Mom-Mom and Pop-Pop. ♥"
"I remember my last conversation with Mom-Mom. It was the day Hines Ward retired. Mom-Mom was bent out of shape; she said why did theyhave to go and do that? We had fun times talking on the phone while watching a football game 1100 miles apart. Who'd have thought that she and I would watch football together? I'm going to miss her so very much. It's hard when you're connected at the heart."
"I thought of Mom-Mom today, we had an April 24th storm, alot of trees lost branches but the tree Mom-Mom planted did not loose any branches.
Just like Mom-Mom, it weathered many storms but made it thru."
"I was blessed with a special Mother and parents. Mom was a loyal,loving wife and mother. She always knew who she was and what her place in the world was .A caring and protective Mom to her Kids .As a Grand mother ,she really did shine....A real MomMom. I will always be thankful for the last few years we spent together as roomies ."
"I love you Mom Mom. I'll always be grateful for you having been such a vital part of my life~ for all the stories, the music and the laughter, and most of all having you for a Grandmother. You're a gift on loan from God, a blessing to anyone who ever met you. I miss you so much."
"I am goin' to miss mom mom so much!
She was a beautiful, loving, lady who made me feel part of her family.
I am so honored to have known her and to have named my daughter's middle name after her because it will allow me to always talk about her throughout my life to Allyssa about her awesome great grand mother."
"I have so many wonderful memories that it would be hard to pick just one; thank God those memories are timeless. Aunt Alvira and Uncle Melvin were so special to me and will live forever in my heart. My thoughts and prayers are with Evie and all the rest of the family. I love you all, and may God bless you all at this very difficult time."
"Words cannot describe how I felt about Mom-Mom. She held a very special place in my heart. I am going to miss her visits to PA. I am glad that her last one included being at my wedding. It really meant a lot to have such a special guest there. I will always love you Mom-Mom!"
"She had a strong backbone, and has left a strong family.
We all miss and love her."
"We lost the backbone of the family. I love you Mom Mom."
