Can't believe it has been three years. I miss you so much!
I see you in so many things around me everyday.
Whether it is something you cherished- that sits in my home, something I use daily- that you crotched, or the beautiful cardinals that grace my yard everyday. You are loved and missed very much.

Good Morning Mama, and Happy Birthday! You would be 89 years old today. You and I had so much fun together! So many times we would laugh until we lost our breath and the tears would flow! I am so thankful that God gave you and me to each other - He sure did a good thing in that. I thank you for raising me in a Christian home filled with love for one another and for God. I remember when you moved into Oakmont Nursing Home, resentful at first, and then told me how happy you were because you had never had so many friends at the same time ever before! Well, Mama, now that you are in Heaven you are surrounded by even more lovely friends than when you were here. I wish you could tell me what's it like to walk through the garden with them and with Jesus. While I'm hoping for many, many more years for myself here on earth, I look forward to the days ahead when I will walk with you hand-in-hand through that garden. I love you and miss you.

Thinking about you today Grandma Shelly!

Mama, I have watched the calendar with a heavy heart these past several weeks, dreading this day - the day of your passing from my arms to Jesus' arms. But the minute I woke up this morning, my heart was not heavy as I had anticipated. I was instead filled with joy and happiness for you on your second anniversary in Heaven. I know you are happy, pain free and at peace. I miss you with all my heart, and always will. I look forward to the day that I can cross over and run once again into your open, loving arms. I love you with all my heart and soul.
Sherry xoxo

1 pm today, 2 years ago, you were lifted to Heaven to be with Jesus. I still see you in so many things during every day. My flower garden, my recipe boxes, the beautiful things that you made, and the all the beautiful Cardinals in my yard. I miss you so, but I know that you are at peace, and that provides me much comfort. I miss your laugh and your smile, but most of all - your love. Love you always, Christy

Happy Birthday Mama! 88 today. I miss you so much. We have laughed and partied through many, many birthdays together! I'm so thankful for every one. Have you found all the hundreds of balloons we have sent up to Heaven through the years? Hugs and kisses xoxo

Miss you so much Grandma. I know you are happy now..and for you it will seem a short wait until we see each other again, but for us it will seem a lifetime. Think of you every day, love you every minute, and miss you every second.

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 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

My fondest memories of grandma Shelly were the 15 minute stop in that turned into hours of conversation. I loved her stories and She embraced me as an adopted grandson. She is a special person in my life and will be truly missed.

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!

I thought of you on your birthday, Aunt Doris, and wondered how you were doing. Little did I know that you were doing great!!! Dancing on the clouds, forever young. Miss you and love you!

Doris was such a gracious, loving and giving person who never met a stranger. I know that I am one, among many, who have in their possession a "Doris Shelley" crocheted cross or other treasured object made especially for each of us. Thank You for Ever and Ever!

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.

Doris, You are a beautiful little lady. We loved you very much and will miss you until we see you again. You beat me up there so save a place at the table. Say Hi to my mom Mary Jane for me. We were blessed to have you for a dear friend!!!  You have not died only moved to a new forever home!!!

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
