"Happy Birthday up in Heaven
from your family here below.
We love you, and we miss you,
and want to let you know.
Your birthdays aren’t forgotten.
and your memory yet lives on.
We celebrate your life with us
even though you’ve gone.
Were God to grant us just one wish,
then make that wish come true,
you’d be here right beside us
and we’d spend this day with you.
And while here for your birthday
you would be so hugged and kissed
that you would know before you go
how much you’re loved and missed."

"As mothers day approaches you are on my mind non-stop. You were the most loving and devoted Mom and your children were your whole world. You took so much joy and pride in cooking for your kids and doing crafts with your kids. You did so many fun things with them. They each had a "special night" and I loved that idea and admired you for doing that. I know you are their guardian angel and always by their side. You were also the best Aunt to your nephews and they miss you and all the fun things you guys used to do together.  Kenny still talks about your homemade buffalo wings. The very last thing you made for us and I'll never forget that day. One of the last things you did with Nathan was play Xbox with him and that memory holds such a big place in his heart. Jonathan was only 6 months old when you passed away and I'm devastated that he will never know you, but we will tell him all about you. I love you! You are missed so much and thought of often. Even more so as Mothers day approaches because you were such a great Mom. Happy Mothers day in Heaven Dana.  We all miss you!"

You loved your family and friends and you are missed by so many people that knew and loved you. I pray that Daniel, Desiree, and Albert know how much you loved and protected them and that they know you are still with them, living in their hearts.  I know you are a guardian angel to your loved ones now.

"Dana there are no words to explain how much I love and miss you. You were such a great Aunt to Kenny and Nathan and I'm devastated that Jonathan will never get to know you. You were so fun and full of life and we will never forget that. We will tell Jonathan all about you and how much we love you and loved being around you. We are all going to miss your cooking and your crafts and your beautiful smile. There is not a day that goes by that I don't think about you a million times. A piece of you lives on in your beautiful children and I am thankful for them. You were such a loving and devoted Mom, your children adored you. They were your whole world as you were theirs.   I was blessed to have you as my sister I only wish we had more time. I loved you unconditionally, always have...always will. You are in my heart forever as well as in the hearts of my children, your children, Mommy and everyone who had the pleasure of knowing you."
