"So I will bless you all of my life, in your name I will lift up my hands. My soul shall be filled as with a banquet, my mouth shall praise you with joy. You have been my help; in the shadow of your wings I rejoice. My soul clings to you; your right hand holds me fast. Psalm 63.  Loving & missing you mom."

"Yesterday you would have been 70 years old.  How I wish you were still here with us.  How you would have loved to turn 70.  How I wish you would be here, but able to walk around your beloved dollar store or Walmart… buying material, buttons, lotions - not confined to that bed.  How I wish you were here to see Scott and Peggy - they miss you so much.  Priscilla and your grandchildren cry when they think about you.  We still have your number of our phones - if only we could hear your voice again. Your great grandchildren who never really got to know you - but who I know you know.  How I wish you were here to see them grow. I will never stop missing you.  I love you and we will see each other again - and not just in my dreams."

"On January 7, 2014, at 7:45 p.m. my world changed when you closed your eyes, took your last breath, and put your hand in daddy's and he led you home. Your face was so beautiful, so peaceful … as our hearts were breaking.  We sat surrounded by sadness and tears, and then we received a message from you to let us know your spirit was with us, and that it would continue to be with us.  The lights in your room all blazed brightly, not just once, not just twice, but three times.  We heard your message then and continue to hear them today, every time we see the color red, every time a hummingbird flies by, when a rose in my garden blooms.  We see you in our dreams, hear your voice in our ears, and know that your blood rushes through our veins and in those of our children, and our grandchildren.  I'll love and miss you every day for the rest of my life, until that joyous day when we are reunited, and you and dad come and take my hand and lead me home.  God bless your soul my love.Know that we are well, together, and remembering you every single day.  Until I see you again, I will look for your beautiful face in my dreams.  I love you."

"Another first that we have to get through without you.  Even more than your birthday, you loved Thanksgiving and Christmas.  My tears flow thinking about how to get through these two holidays without you here, insisting that we get the turkey (November 1st was the deadline), cause heaven forbid, the stores run out of turkeys.  When you were well, you were the pie maker.  I remember how much you loved to make the pumpkin pies…it signaled that you were ready for us to get started.  The stuffing will never be the same without you here to taste it … add some more salt, add a little sage…perfect.  Our official taster is gone.  I can’t stand to think of that anymore.  But you would be happy that Peggy and I are spending the day together at Scott and Priscilla’s.  I know how much you wanted us to stay together, stay in touch, and we are. I know you know that.  Thank you for being with me and Jordan the other night – I felt your presence there and know that you kept him safe as he stood on the side of the road.  I know your spirit will be near us tomorrow.  We miss you. We love you.  Thank you for all the memories you left us with, we will need them to get through these times without you."

"Time will never relieve the pain that we felt losing you. The only thing that makes it better is knowing that you passed away in peace. I hope to also pass one day the in the same manner. I know you're watching over us, as I really can't explain how fortunate we have been. We miss you and love you.  I know that you have everything you did without while on earth up in heaven."

"Mom, 6 months ago today you left this earth, and while I believe that you are happy in paradise, you left us all so sad and lonely for you.  I have so many memories of my life with you and for that I am blessed, but I would rather have you here with us.  I remember January 7th with so much sadness.  Seeing you, wishing that you would get up and walk out of the ICU with me.  Leave the pain and the sadness behind.  But I know who came and took you from here - I felt his presence with us all afternoon.  Patiently waiting 17 years to come for you.  I love you and my peace is that you know that…you were surrounded by all of your family, me, Scott, Peggy, and all the kids.  God bless you Elvira.  I will always love you."

"Mom, your 69th birthday is fast approaching.  You are in my mind all the time.  For the 46 years of my life, you were there, every moment. Learning to live without you is so hard.  I miss you.  I wish you were here with us still.  I will never stop loving you and remembering all that you did and all that you were to us.  I pray you know that my love."

I miss you every single day..
I remember when you always wanted to take us to school and have freshly made tortillas made when we got home..
You were my joy in life i loved going to go see you every time we went to El Paso..
Seeing you like that broke my heart to the fullest my throat burned my heart ached..
I know you and grandpa are together forever!
I love you to the fullest!
-Scotty Ray ❤"

""Willis", Tomey will miss making you your oatmeal, frying your eggs just so for breakfast and most of all, your many many calls during the day.  He knows that he was #1 on your speed dial.  Rest in Peace Willis!"

"How wonderful God’s mercy is.

I said: “My God, it hurts.” He responded: “I know”
I said: “God, I’ve cried so much.” He responded: “That’s why I gave you tears…”
I said: “God, I feel so depressed.” He responded: “That’s why I gave you the sunrise this morning”
I said: “God, life is tough.” He responded: “That’s why I gave you a family”
I said: “Lord, my dearest relative passed away.” He responded: “Mine too…”
I said: “But Lord, this is such a immense loss” He responded: “I saw mine crucified”
I said: “Yes, my dear God but yours is still alive.” He responded: “Yours too”"

O God, who hast commanded us to honor our father and our mother; in Thy mercy have pity on the soul of my mother, and forgive her her trespasses; and make me to see her again in the joy of everlasting brightness. Through Christ our Lord. Amen."
