"Momma I miss you so much.  I'm still taking care of dad and Bill too.!  We're doing okay but everything is so different without you.  Love you!"

I want you to know, that I know that you love me, and I am grateful for your love. We grew closer and closer as your days were winding down and it makes me smile, knowing that you entered into eternity with a clean slate. You were always a hard person to read and I have come to realize that sometimes your hard exterior was actually a defense mechanism that you put in place to protect yourself from being hurt. I love you and will miss you for the rest of my life."

"Mom, you have left us to go and be with Jesus and we all miss you. We know you don't have pain and you aren't confined to bed or wheelchair anymore. But we will miss you always and forever. You have always been there for us and we've tried to be there for you too. And I'll be there for dad too. He misses you so much. You have been so many things to so many people...mother, friend, comforter, grandma. You have held fast to your beliefs and have loved and nourished us. You wore your honesty and integrity like a banner. Your beautiful smile is your legacy to us. Love you so much."
