|We love you Mom forever and ever|
This memorial website was created in memory of our mother and grandmother, LaRae Horne Wimmer, 69, born on July 6, 1944. She was married to her college sweetheart Lamon Wimmer for 50 years, and was the loving mother to 5 children - Brad, Kristi, Doug, Martin, and Todd - and 5 grandchildren - Martin, Roxie, Zoey, Hudson, and Bennett. She passed away in her sleep on April 8, 2014 after a 9 month long battle with cancer. We will love her and miss her forever.
"Happy birthday Mom. Miss you everyday and I wish you were here to see Bennett grow up and play with him. We love you."
"Happy birthday in heaven Aunt LaRae.
You are greatly missed and thought of often. I hope that you, Jessica and the rest of our wonderful family members joyously celebrate together today. Give my girl a huge hug for me!
Love you forever, Nancy & family"
"Happy Birthday Aunt LaRae! I think of you very often and remember so many great times we had together. When there were bad days you were there for me too. I miss your beautiful soul and the joy you brought into my life. I know there is a great party going on up in heaven today! Love you!"
"Tender memories of 50 years.together on LaRae's
Birthday! You left is early but know you are happy
as we move forward without you!"
"Thinking about you lately. ..sure wish you were here to go eat lunch and cheesecake and do a little shopping. Seems like it's been a long time since you left us it still hurts to go to your place and not have you there. Hoping you're happy, give everyone a big hug from me. Love you forever!"
"Hi Mom. So today marks one year since you were taken from us, and I have missed you everyday since then. When I think about you, I don't think about those last weeks when you were so very sick and so frail. I think about your funny sense of humor, your hearty laugh, and your round "Barlow Belly" (which I have apparently inherited - thanks). I miss our long phone conversations and I can't bring myself to delete the last voicemails you left me on my phone because its the only way I can hear your voice.Your kids miss you and your grandkids miss you too. Dad is doing ok, but he definitely misses you a lot. The grandkids have changed so much in the last year, but I assume you know that since you are all watching over us. Here's to hoping each year without you hurts less and less. I love you Mom. Kristi"
"Merry Christmas Mom. We missed you so much these holidays. Not having you there for the annual thanksgiving picture was really hard, but we took the picture anyways because it was the right thing to do. You were so sick last Christmas, but at least you were still here. This year it was just empty because you weren't with us. Dad still can't hardly talk about you without tears welling up or his voice cracking. He misses you so much. The grand kids miss you too, and Bennett and Hudson have gotten so big, even though Bennett now looks older cause he's taller and has a ton of long golden hair. It makes me so sad that they didn't get to know you and what an amazing grandma you were. I know it will get easier as time goes by, but I just miss you so much and wish I could talk to you about my life and your life. I love you mom. It's not the same without you."
"I keep hearing the song you always sang to me as a kid, "Alice, where are you going. . Upstairs. . To take a bath" A pretty simple song that brings a smile to my face because it reminds me of you. It dawned on me today- maybe I am hearing it lately because you have been hanging around my mom and I. Difficult times now but the memory of you brings me a sense of bravery, faith, and hope. You faced so many difficult challenges with such courage and kept your sweet smile and sense of humor through it all. Thanks for the life you lived and the courage I have gained from your example. Love and miss you ♡"
"Happy birthday Aunt LaRae. We love you and miss you very much! I hope you got to celebrate your birthday with Martin, Marcus, Jessica, your parents and sooo many other loved ones in heaven - free from pain and free from the worldly cares. Give my girl a huge hug for me!
Love you always,
"Happy happy Birthday my dear sister. Thinking of you all day today and wishing that you were here. Love and miss you forever"
"Happy Birthday LaRae. We both miss you."
"I only met LaRae once at her house with my niece and son and daughter in law for dinner . I was out visiting from MN . She was so nice and gracious to me . I thought Heidi was so lucky to be in such a family ."
"Happy birthday mom! I'm very sad you aren't here today celebrating your 70th birthday with us. I miss you so much and think about you every day. I love you so much!"
"Happy Birthday dear little sister - I miss you!"
"I love and miss you so much. As our Birthday is getting closer I think of you more. I want you to be happy & get along without your family, they miss you and I cry when I think of what you're missing by not being there while your grandchildren are growing up, getting married and having families. I know that we'll be together again and the Lord has something really special that he wants you to do but I love you and will always miss you. You're so awesome and the best sister anyone could ever want. Hang in there, we'll catch you someday soon, you've just moved on before us. Until later, Julie Anne"
