|Let the memory of DELLA MAE be with us forever|
"Happy Birthday my sweet girl!!! I love you Nanny and I miss you more than words can express. You have been guiding me all along with your sweet presence in my heart. I feel so happy and confident that God will bring us together again...i'm waiting for that 'someday' to come. Until we meet again, keep visiting me in my dreams. I enjoy seeing you and talking with you. I know you are ALWAYS there! I love you, cris"
"Mama, you left me six years ago on November 1st @ 6 p.m. It seems like a lifetime ago since I've seen your precious, soft, smiling little face...yet it seems like it was only yesterday. I've re~lived that moment so-o-o-o many times in my memory...I was holding you in my arms when you left me and departed to be with our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. I can still see the look in your eyes...mostly 'cause you wanted to stay and partly 'cause you wanted to go. You wanted to stay 'cause you were afraid that Blake and Johnny wouldn't be taken care of as you'd taken care of them. Well mama, I've taken care of "the brother" as well as I can, and Blake is finally with his mother, where he should be and he's happy,
As usual,it's with a breaking heart that I send these words. Since you've left me, so many things just aren't important to me anymore. Of course, my kids and Lee are not one of the UN-importants. You raised me well to care about my kids and family, for you surely cared for us. There are so many memories I have of you, naturally. Even the small ones are important to me. I remember well: when I was about four years old, we lived in Fallon, Nevada...you would fix me an egg for breakfast and I've never seen ANYONE who could cut up an egg on a plate as fast as you...somehow you made the fork and knife move at the same time and quickly, too. Mama, you were ALWAYS here for me. I could never have told you how much I really love you, there just aren't sufficient words. Now, rest till Jesus comes and we'll once again be re~united...I look forward to that day..;just as The Word of God tells us: The trumpet will sound, and only those of us who are listening and tuned in will hear it, and then we'll be together again, NEVER TO SAY GOODBYE AGAIN.I love you, mama...."
"It's me again, Mama... sorry I missed acknowledging your birthday this year. You would've been 100 years old, and you could have easily made it. I'm thankful to God for the 64 years we shared together.
I STILL and ALWAYS will miss you forever...everything about you was a blessing to me as well to anyone you met. I miss you just as much at this moment as I did the moment you left me. Some say that after five years, I should be able to move on....know what???...they did not have you for a mother. I hope that when I leave my family in this life, that I'll be missed even a fraction of how much I miss you. I love you, mama...rest in peace 'cause you deserve it."
"HAPPY 100the BIRTHDAY NANNY! I thank God for you every day and all the love you gave me growing up. Now, because of you, I can share that same kind of love with my own grandson. I just hope he loves me the way I love you! Miss you bunches and with all my heart, love, cris"
"Today at 6 pm is four years that I've not seen you, mama. How I miss touching your soft face, telling you "I LOVE YOU, MAMA" and hearing you reply "I LOVE YOU TOO, BABY."
I miss everything about you. There's not an "nth" of a degree of a second that I'm not thinking of you or missing you. I'll always grieve for you..I LOVE YOU, MAMA."
"I miss my sweet little Nanny each and every day. Her soft laugh, her mere existence was a true blessing from God. I love you Nanny! Wait for me cause I can't wait to see you again. Love, Cris"
"So many wonderful memories of my darling mother, a licensed vocational nurse by profession, truly her calling. She had the gift of giving...of heart, her hands, her words of wisdom whenever I needed guidance. Mama, I'll not kiss your sweet, soft cheek and tell you " I LOVE YOU, MAMA", not again in this life but one day I'll join the reunion that you've already experienced. I MISS U FOREVER"
