"All the crazy times we had together whether we just sat by a  campfire at her house at 6 Mile drinking Beer, Telling Jokes and that Cackle Laugh she had was so funny.  Going to the Cabin at the lake with our girls and just having a Blast.  Those were the days.  I really wish I wasnt sick the last time she came out.  So I missed her visit.  Rest in Peace my Friend.  Will miss you.  And always in our thoughts. Becky Vineyard."

"So sorry to hear of your loss. Death is truly an enemy of all. It leaves hearts heavy filled with sadness and pain. That is why God has promised to rid the earth of death and it's painful effects. The Bible tells us at Revelation 21:4,5.....that soon pain, sorrow, sickness, and death will be no more. Until that day arrives, may the God of comfort be with your family."

"When I got the news today
I didn't know what to say.
So I just hung up the phone.

I took a walk to clear my head,
This is where the walking led
Can't believe you're really gone
Don't feel like going home

So I'm gonna sit right here
On the edge of this pier
Watch the sunset disappear
And drink a beer

Funny how the good ones go
Too soon, but the good Lord knows
The reasons why, I guess

Sometimes the greater plan
Is kinda hard to understand
Right now it don't make sense
I can't make it all make sense

So I'm gonna sit right here
On the edge of this pier
Watch the sunset disappear
And drink a beer

So long my friend
Until we meet again
I'll remember you
And all the times that we used to...

... sit right here on the edge of this pier
And watch the sunset disappear
And drink a beer

-Luke Bryan"
