"I wanted to share the pictures of Carretta's painting that she let me take on my lessons.  She truly had an amazing talent to be able to paint like she did.  I miss her dearly, as I am sure all of her family does.  My prayers are still for Bill and her children that she loved so much.  Happy Birthday my friend."

"I miss you grandma so much. I hate that we waisted 9 years of our livesapart when we could have continued being close like we used to be. I'm glad I got to see you in the hospital though. At least I got to tell you that I love you and got to say goodbye before you past. That's all I keep clinging to to keep me sane. But that wasn't enough time. I'llbe missing you forever. I love you."

"This is to a wonderful neighbor and friend of mine. Carretta, I am so thankful that we meet and had the time that we shared together painting. Everything that I know about oil painting I learned from you. I am sure I will remember you every time that I look at trees or mountains, you taught me how to really look and see how the light shines on them. I could see and feel the love while I was at your house with you and your family. I know you were truly loved and will be missed so much. My prayers are for all of your family. Thank you for everything.  Some day I will see you again my friend."

"I'm so sorry grandma that you had to endure all that pain and whatever else you had to go through in the hospital. I just keep telling myself that you're now in Heaven with God and you no longer have to hurt anymore. I'm grateful for that part at least but I still love you and I miss you terribly. With such a kind and gentle heart, I'm sure God has made you into an Angel by now....YES! that's what I'm going to believe. You are a true Angel."

"Hi grandma. I'm not sure if you can see this from heaven but I hope you can because I just want to say how much I love and miss you and how sorry I am that we lost so many years together. I know I finally got to see you in the hospital a couple weeks before you passed and I told you that I love you. You didn't respond. You kinda just smiled a little and then I left. You and I used to be so close up until......well you know.....and I just pray from the bottom of my heart that you have forgiven me. God I miss you so much. You were and will forever be my Hero. You were so beautiful inside and out. You were so strong in many ways. When there was hardship in the family, you were always our rock. You were a wonderful wife and home maker. You were a great Mother and you were also the best grandmother in the world. You will always be missed but yet at the same time I'm greatful that you no longer have to be in pain. You're home safe with the Lord now. I love you and I miss you always and forever."
