"Mom you were and Angel on earth. Everyone you ever came in contact with you left a mark . Pop loved you more than life itself and would have given you the world if he could.Your children are a beautiful reminder of your legacy.  Your grand babies are a vision of your tender love. Mrs Rainear was your side kick and dearest friend.  You are now in the heavens with Mrs. Charap  and Ginger flying high  Mom you  were a big part of my life since I was 17 years old . You and pop took me in and have loved me as one of your own. I will never  forget that. Mom you  have given me one of your greatest and precious gifts and I will always cherish him. In life we may not always agree but in the end we are family. You only wanted the best for us. Fly high with those Angeles. We love you and miss you"

  I miss you so much and it still hurts so much. Knowing that you lived your life loving the Lord and serving him makes it a little easier. I know the many people who you led to the Lord who proceeded your death were there to greet you at the Pearlie Gates right next to Jesus.  You touched so many lives in the years you were alive and so many people were blessed by your presence and words of encouragement. Never being judgemental when you could have. Never being condescending or hurtful, only offering words of encouragement and positivity.
  This Christmas will be hard without you. But with the supportive family you helped to mold we will be just fine, holding hands and offering up prayers over our food.  You were the center of it all and you will be missed by many.

I love you Mom."
