"Oh Mom!!!! Please be there to greet Kim!  She is gone and..  I am so lost without you... She stepped into your shoes and now I feel so alone. Why?!?!  She fought so long and so hard. It's all so unfair... Please let her know I love her and keep her close to you.... I miss you both so much. You both are in my thoughts and prayers daily,,,"

"Happy Birthday, Mom, on what would have been your 70th.  Have been thinking about my memories of you when I was in elementary school, starting when "Bump" was born!  You were amazing!  I remember you being my Brownie troop leader and making Shrinky-Dinks in the oven; really enjoying making money off these giant tissue paper flowers you learned how to make and taught me; teaching me how to cook my first meal ever: tuna casserole; all while listening to Andy Williams, or Tammy Wynette, or Freddie Fender, etc. Such excellent memories back then.  Love you and miss that mom."

"Happy Birthday Mom. Watched a new Rocky movie the other night and thought about you Always thought it was funny how you would root for Rocky to win on the movies, even though you had seen them 100 times you would still yet at the TV. You would have liked this one I think. Love ya"

"I dread this day every year. I can walk around the rest of the year and pretend that you are still here, just away...somewhere on vacation with no phone...poor reception up there in the mountains.  But then January 3 comes along, and it all comes flooding back.  The phone call, the mad rush to the airport across the state, the frantic cab ride to the hospital, the shock of seeing you lying in ICU...I'll never forget it.  I am so grateful for the few days with you in the hospital.  But what I would give to hear you speak to me again, to tell me you love me, that it's going to be okay.  I miss you, mom...more than you will ever know.  I hope we get to see each other again in heaven.  Love always."

"I am sorry to hear of Nancy's passing! I worked with Nancy in Deming New Mexico. She was a great inspiration to me. She was the DON at Mimbres Memorial Nursing Home. She encouraged me to take my first DON position. I admired her for going into business for herself.  My son and I visited her and Gale at their home. My son and I was talking about her today and the raccoon she use to have. Googled her and found out this sad news. A wonderful lady!"

"You take your mom for granted. you think she will always be there.you don't realize how the world changes when she is gone  I drive to work and try to remember every childhood memory of her  I try to keep her face in focus. What happens if I lose it? I didn't see her often but miss her deeply. She taught me alot. My life has become emptier without her. I love and miss her.Til we meet again"

"The bond between mother and daughter is one of the strongest you can find. It surpasses distance, disagreements, and even space and time. You left this earth much sooner than expected. I still need you, as being an adult is not something I have yet perfected. I will forever miss your voice and sage advice. But I trust your spirit will continue to guide me through this life. I love you, Mom"
