"Well, mama, somehow I have managed to live a whole year without you. I don't know how, but the calendar says I did it. I miss you with all my heart. Sometimes I feel you brush against my arm and it makes me smile to know that your spirit remains next to me at all times. Just as my heart remains with you in Heaven. Losing you has left such a big hole in my heart and my life. Nothing but you can fill this void....so I wait until my room is ready. I love you. I miss you. I thank God for you.

"We knew Doris for such a short time, only one year, but it was a wonderful friendship.  She was such a sweet loving person.  When Sherry and DeeDee visited most days, we would sit in the living room with Doris' grand pup, DeeDee in her lap and we enjoyed visiting.  A group would form and we would talk and laugh, it was a fun time and now she is so missed.  We all miss our time together, it's just not the same without her.  But we won't be selfish, she has gone to be with our lord in heaven and is in a much better place.  We will enjoy her again in heaven.  Bless the family that I know misses her dearly. All our love, Susan Glazener and Jackie"

"I am so happy I had the opportunity to meet and be around Doris.  She was always smiling and happy to see everyone.  I remember how she loved music and butterscotch candies.  May God hold her family close during this time of loss.  Heaven received another Angel this month!  One of these days, there will be a very happy Reunion for all of us!"

"Happy birthday grandma, wish you could be here to celebrate with us, but I'm sure those who have gone before you are making your birthday the best one ever. Give grandpa and pop a hug and a kiss from me and tell uncle R I said hi. Miss you grandma. Love you for always.

"Happy Birthday Mama. I never imagined waking up to an April 26th without you. This is your day. A day we have celebrated together for 67 years. It is different this year, because you are resting in our loving Jesus' arms as I sing Happy Birthday to you. I long to hold you and kiss you just as I did last week. I will get through this, Mama, I just don't know how to do it yet. Please hold me close. I love you so much and I am so thankful that God put the two of us together in this world and even better, that we know we will be in His kingdom together when the time to wait is over and His will be done. I love you, Mama. I promise my love to you forever.  Sherry"
