97 yrs old today 1-22-19 you would be now mom. It seems so odd not to calling you or visiting you with Amber and Christine and Nicole with a cake and gifts. We don't have any relatives that we know left. I hope you are truly at peace finally. Just letting you know you are loved and missed. Always, Renee

Christmas 2018 Thinking about you and the rest of the family, knowing your all together makes me happy. I often pick up your book and read from it which brings a smile to my face. Sadly I feel I don't have a family anymore. I try and stay in touch with Dickies girls, Andrea's kids, well Myra hasn't kept in touch with me. I speak to Vikkii in Hawaii and she sent some of Ron's ashes to me. Grateful and Blessed Forever Missed!

Happy 96th Mama! knowing love goes on forever gives me some relief because I know you are safe and have love all around you. Things have not gone so well between us left behind I guess you understand the depth of feelings between everyone here but things happen as they do. I can't seem to stop crying every time I come to this site and hear the song you played on the piano when we were growing up. And many times I think of you and feel like a lost child. Still trying to understand why people leave us and know I have to never give up. Ron's death hit me harder than I ever realized it would. So if you see him tell him I love him and everyone else there with you like, daddy, Dickie, and Roberta. Love, Renee

Though our grief over Granny's passing is strong, our bonds to one another grow stronger each day. She will always be remembered and greatly missed. 'Blessed are those who mourn, for they will be comforted.' - Matthew 5:4

Rest in Peace Mom. Thinking of you today. Always missing you. Loving you always. The tears still flowing, regret pains me for all left unsaid but I hope that somehow healing comes someway yet for now I feel lost and try to make sense of it all and not to give up. Love Renee

I can't believe it has been two years already since Mom passed away. Mom, I think about you all the time. Your words of wisdom, your insights, your belief in doing what was good and right, your tolerance for difference, and your lack of tolerance for bigoted, mean-spirited people are with me all of the time. Through your stories, you will live forever. We love you.

Today's the 2nd yr with mom gone. I feel saddened that tributes have not been left by my children and grandchildren and other family members who said they don't know what to say and that's okay. I understand their grief and this site will remain up forever and they can whenever they want to write something. For me it is such a hollow feeling to be orphaned. Her passing left a big gap in our lives that tears cannot ever fill and nothing seems to heal that. I am just glad she is in a better place and no longer suffering.

Today would be her 95th birthday. We had a chance to say goodbye 5 days before she passed. We smiled and talked and kissed each other on the cheek. We said "I love you" to each other. When she took her last breath I was at her side with Amber, Christine, Arthur, Mike, Kim, and the nurses. She is singing in the choir up there in heaven. Smiling. Telling me "Not to ever give up"

Though Granny Esther is no longer with us, she is still remembered. I remember with joy her beautiful smile and soft skin. What I wouldn't give to be able to hug her again!

Remembering Mom today for Mother's Day. Though she is gone she is missed deeply.
Posted by Renee Sanchez Kennedy on 8th April 2016
Today April 7th is the one year anniversary of mom's passing. Thou mom is gone, her memory lives on. With her death leaving many regrets I promised myself to no longer fret. But to live a better life, not filled with strife, but instead strive to live a life of love, hope, charity, and forgiveness. . . . . in her memory.

***Today mom would be 94ys old. My thoughts are of her today and as I hear the song playing I can see her up in Heaven playing this song on the piano and smiling down at me. My tears feel bittersweet yet I know she would want me to continue to improve myself and live as happy as I can, and to, "Never give up"
