"Sending hugs. kisses and love to you in Heaven today Mom.  It's hard to believe it has been a year since God called you home.  There are no words to express how much we miss you and can only find comfort in knowing that you are in a better place."

"Uncle Al, I always had such a great time visiting with Elrine and you Al. She was such a wonderful lady and I miss her very much. I found this poem and thought of you Al. It is called
Don't grieve for me for now I'm free,
I'm following the path God laid for me.
I took his hand when I heard him call,
I turned my back and left it all.
I could not stay another day
To laugh, to love, to work or play.
Tasks left undone will stay that way,
I found that peace at close of day.
If my parting has left a void,
Then fill it with remembered joy.
A friendship shared, a laugh a kiss,
Ah yes, these things I, too, will miss.
But not burdened with times of sorrow,
I wish you the sunshine of tomorrow.
My life has been full, I've savored much.
Good friends, good times, a loved ones touch.
Perhaps my time seemed all to brief
Don't lengthen it now with undue grief.
Lift up your heats and share with me,
God wanted me now, He set me free."

"Missing You Grandma

I've left this little card Grandma
Just so you will know,
I love and miss you
More than you could know.

You were so very caring
So loving and so kind,
And anywhere you went
There was a rainbow there to find.

You played a big part of my life
And even though you are gone,
The respect and love
I have for you
Will go on and on.

Love you Grandma"

"Your smile, Elrine, lites up everything and everyone around you.  You, the perfect hostess, giving laughing ~ I think you fed me a lot too ~ Holidays, Sundays, Fridays too.  You watched Vicki and me as we came of age and even before.  Always so nice to be around.  My heart holds a special place for my Elrine.....and for my Al who put up with all us women for a long long time.  A great husband, friend, host with patience and humor.  I always, always wear my gold hoop earrings you gave me for 1962 graduation.  They just go with me cause I like them the most.

For Vicki & Dan ~ I too know the heartbreak of losing mom.  Even though it was much kinder to let go, we have them in our spirit to hold and talk to forever.  I toast and celebrate Elrine.  Thanks for sharing your family.  So many memories....Love"
