"Today was the funeral service, and very hard. But now it's time to heal. Time to love on my babies, work hard, and remember Grammy always. I promise I will tell the kids stories so that they always know who Grammy is and how amazing she is. Hunter and I were so blessed to spend her last day by her side. She was singing and laughing, full of joy and love. I hope and pray that my last day can be just what hers was. love you Grammy --Tiffany Baldwin"
"Goodbye Mom. I love you. --Carolyn Corwin"
"Hard to believe she is gone, I know she is in such a better place with all of her family and friends who have passed before her. My Grammy had a huge part in my life and with raising me I hope I made her proud and she is looking down on me smiling, I'm also extremely happy she had the chance to meet my kids and spend time with them they loved her very much. This isn't good bye this is a see you soon. Love you Grammy -- Brittany Grant"
"Hard to believe you're gone Grammy. I hope you know how much we love you and will miss you. Take care of Uncle Jimmy and everyone else up there. See you again someday. --Ashley Roberts"
"Just recently found out about the passing of Deanne Kosters. My sincere condolences, even though I never met her I have a special place in my heart for her. I had found out not to long back that we were related after all these years. She was the first too call me and give me a little insight on the father I never knew (Henry Smith) along with Kimberly Smith Dale who originally discovered it. Rest in peace. --David Smith"
"Deanne.....I made the visit I should have made a long time ago. As soon as I heard, I made the plans to fly out there. I knew you wouldn't be there, but I was wrong. I felt your presence everywhere. You have left a huge imprint on the lives of so many people. We gathered at your home, many reminisced and shared stories. I met your children and sister (my cousins), your grandchildren and great-grandchildren; I met your husband, and many of your friends. A piece of your soul is within each of these people. They need only to look within themselves to find you, to remember you. And though your physical presence will be missed, I know you live on and we will just have to wait a while longer to be face to face."
"Tonight we had a memorial service for my sister. All of the family who could be there was. Many friends came and we all said what was in our hearts. All differences were set aside. Some of the family is in a great family feud. Those people set together, prayed together and enjoyed each other. It was very comforting. Everyone pitched in and helped make a get-together that my sister would have loved. My nieces, bless their hearts, cleaned everything up. A family member sang a song he wrote for her. Thank you David, it was beautiful. A cousin we had never met flew in from Maryland and got to meet the whole gang. She is a beautiful person inside and out. My Brother-in-law was grateful and overwhelmed. Thank you all for making it BEAUTIFUL.
Wouldn't it be wonderful if we could all get along like that forever. I love you all. --Donna Jo Burchard"
"May we all feel…
happy and contented,
healthy and strong,
safe and protected
and living with ease…
May the road rise to meet you
May the wind be always at your back
May the sun shine warm upon your face
The rains fall soft upon your fields
And until we meet again
May God hold you in the palm of his hand"
"There will always be a void in my life now that you are in heaven, but you will always be in my heart. I love you Mom"
"I do not know how to comfort one who has lost a parent because I have not experienced it. When I do have to face it someday, I would like to think that I would embody every good thing they were, in my life. Sometimes we are at odd with our parents and those times “haunt” us when they are gone. I have to believe that they always had our best interest in mind during those times and the fact that those times existed means they taught us to think for ourselves and make our own decisions even if they differ from their choices. We hurt because there is a void in our heart caused by their absence. Fill that void with remembrance of the love she had for you and that part of you that is her. She is never gone as long as you press on with strength and love she instilled in you. There is no doubt Deanne lived life to the fullest, which will make her absence more noticeable. You and your family are in my prayers. I pray for peace, strength and encouragement. Take comfort in family, grieve together, heal together and honor her memory together. --Scott Burchard"
"out of the mouth of Grammy:
Weep not for me though I am gone into that gentle night.
Grieve if you will, but not for long upon my soul's sweet flight.
I am at peace, my soul's at rest
There is no need for tears.
For with your love I was so blessed.
For all those many years.
There is no pain, I suffer not,
The fear now all is gone.
Put now these things out of your thoughts,
In your memory I live on.
Remember not my fight for breath
Remember not the strife.
Please do not dwell upon my death,
But celebrate my life. --Unknown Author"
"RIP Grammy I love you and you will forever be in my heart and your memory will last forever. Thank you for believing in me. --Jason Tinsley"

"Deanne, My dear beautiful friend...I cannot believe that someone who lived & loved with all her heart & soul is no longer just a phone call away. I am smiling thru the tears when I remember how the Lord brought us all together & how big a part that you & Dick played in my spiritual journey. I don't ever remember a time with you that wasn't filled with joy & laughter regardless of the circumstances. I am so sorry that I can't be present to send you off in the same grand style as you lived, but I asked Jesus to let you know how very dear you are to me & I know that you are resting in His Arms. Dick & Family...your hearts must be broken. I pray the Lord will fill you all with Grace, Love & Peace. Big Hugs, --Kassie Kavanaugh"

"Lori, In the brief time I knew her, your dear friend Deanne was to me the brightest and most colorful sunflower in the meadow, she was a chameleon, never afraid to be herself, she was inspiring and a joy to be around. I know your heart is aching in terrible pain and sadness, but she will always be with you in your heart. To me this beautiful flower in all its shades reminds me of her, she was so dazzling in character and all that she was. Love your friend Diane"
"Deanne, even though I only knew her for a short time in my life had as much impact on me as those I have known all my life. I am sorry for your loss and that I cannot be there for you now. You remain in my prayers along with the rest of the family. I will see you soon. Love, Scott Burchard"
