Happy Heavenly Birthday Mom. I found two cards that you sent to me and I believe that I found them on your birthday for a reason. I know you understand how I am still so very sad on losing Ralph. I love and miss you too but no parent should have to lose their child. Please pray for our family and have the best heavenly birthday filled with peace and love.

I had a beautiful dream of you and that you and Ralph were together. Caitlyn saw a beautiful rainbow on the 3rd anniversary of your leaving us. I definitely believe it was a sign to let us know that you are watching over all of us and praying for us. You know how devastated I am feeling on losing Ralph and I know you would be giving me such wonderful words of wisdom. I know you had lived a wonderful life and I ask you to pray for me as I am still so sad in losing my son. It is not the natural order for any parent to have to lose their child. Thank you for your love. I miss you and I love you.

Missing you. You would really enjoy this beautiful weather we are having this October. My rose garden is still blooming and we all miss you. We still refer to your room as Grandma's room. Love and miss you. Ruthann

I love and miss you Mom. It is very hard to put into words all the gratitude I feel in having had you in my life. It was a honor to have you as my mother; and I am so happy that I was able to take care of you as you took such good care of me during my lifetime. You left a wonderful legacy with your faith in God and love of family.

"Behold, the dwelling place of God is with man. He will dwell with them, and they will be his people, and God himself will be with them as their God. He will wipe away every tear from their eyes, and death shall be no more, neither shall there be mourning, nor crying, nor pain anymore, for the former things have passed away.”

Grandma, I was blessed to have you around as when I was 1 you saved my life from choking. I cherish the last 5 years where we got to hang out and laugh together. I remember being a child and you bringing me to the corner store for candy. I am glad I was able to re pay some of the joy by bringing you yogurt. I know Hope is thrilled to have you in heaven with her. She loved being around you.

Surrounded by the love of those near and far, in a room full of angels, music and the scent of roses you took your journey home. It was a gift to be able to be with you in your final days. To witness the love and strength of your family, the Mercy of our God and the fact that love transcends all place and time, Thank you Grandma for allowing me to walk you HOME.

Grandma, Thank you so much for everything that you've done for me throughout my life. I feel so blessed that my three children came to know and love you as I have. I am sad to say goodbye but I am at peace that you are in heaven with Grandpa and your family. Thank you for coming to "visit" me on Chloe's birthday, the day you entered heaven. It is a gift that I will treasure forever.
