Everyday in some small way

Though absent, you are always near
Still missed, loved and always dear.

This memorial website was created in the memory of our beloved, Gennifer Canfield ("BB") Cross, 69, born on May 7, 1943 and passed away on June 12, 2012. We will remember her forever.

Proverbs 31:25-31

"She is clothed with strength and dignity; she can laugh at the days to come. She speaks with wisdom,
 and faithful instruction is on her tongue. She watches over the affairs of her household
 and does not eat the bread of idleness. Her children arise and call her blessed. Many women do noble things,
 but you surpass them all. Charm is deceptive, and beauty is fleeting;
 but a woman who fears the Lord is to be praised. Honor her for all that her hands have done,
 and let her works bring her praise at the city gate."

Dear Mother. I thought of you with love today, but that is nothing new. I thought about you yesterday, and days before that too. I think of you in silence. I often speak your name. All I have are memories, and your picture in a frame. Your memory is my keepsake, with which I'll never part. God has you in His keeping... I have you in my heart. _______________ Missing you much. ~Tony.

I'm viewing Mom's picture and I'm touched. Touched to see a Woman who was so persecuted, manipulated, trampled upon by many so filled with joy. Her inner man was strong. Just about every picture she is smiling. Praise the Lord. She has left an example for us to follow. But the bottom line is, "those who know better do better." Peace, Love
Posted by Annmarie Cross on 12th July 2013
Hey Mother; yep, it has been some time since we spoke. It has been a period of time I wish I could forget. Forgetting; its not that easy. As Tony stated, "Death leaves a heartache no one can heal; love leaves a memory no one can steal." Rest in peace Mother........I know that's what You'd want for us......Peace. Love
Posted by Annmarie Cross on 14th June 2013
