|Let the memory of Imelda be with us forever|
"Well, this is a big happy birthday. I know that you are celebrating in way that none of us here can yet indulge in. Glory is where you're at."
"The last time I saw Dick and Imelda was at my Mom's 80th birthday. That was November 2007. Your parents drove in and were a wonderful surprise for Mom. They picked up where they had left off years ago. Your parents made my Mom a book about their time in Malta, as they were all stationed there together. I miss their laughter and your Dad's wit.
Bless you all,
Carol Buffkin McKillican (Connie Buffkin's sister)"
"What pleasant memories I have of my younger years in the Navy, while stationed in San Diego, CA. I spent many consecutive weekends with Imelda and Dick and many late evenings during those young years. They had much to do with my outlook on life, how I saw life and what the world had to offer. She always had smiles and encouragement for me, while brother Dick would give me some teaching tools and guidance for my Naval career. Although, we couldn't discuss his highly secretive projects, some of them did directly affect my working areas of my command and its fellow squadrons. Imelda, was always comforting and always reminded me of her coming and spending some winter months with us on the farm. Yes, she was a trooper, endured a great deal when first arriving in this nation, but she was so supportive and encouraging to her husband. She was his brick of sustainment and his best friend, and loudess cheerleader in all of his achievements. She was one-of-a-kind mother, wife and friend to all that crossed her path. We will always remember your joy, laughter and serving hospitality. You are missed, but know that you and your beloved are walking the streets of Gold, Praising the Lord Jesus for all the blessings that He blessed you two with during your precious years on this earth.
Love you, Dick's youngest brother, Ernie."
"To dear Auntie Imelda,
We cherish the wonderful memories in Malta, the UK and our USA visit last August. We love you and miss you dearly.
Rest in peace Aunt Imelda.
All our love, Tony, Marlene, Carol and Amy."
"We had the pleasure of meeting Imelda when we lived in Valencia in the 70s. Our son Brent and Kraig went to school together and became friends. She and Dick held a special place in our hearts. We went to dances and other events at OLPH. She was always a very neat, kind and talented person. We also went on a cruise to Alaska with her and Dick and had a wonderful time and a lifetime full of memories.
We spent a weekend with them at their lovely home in the desert and enjoyed much kindness and many laughs."
I am truly grateful for the time that I was able to spend with you in the last few months. I will never forget all my childhood memories with you, from eating ice cream, to doing puzzles, and playing Carrom. I love you and thank you for always showing love to me throughout my life! You are loved and missed!
"Mom, I am grateful that we had these last 4 months together. I got to see and spend time with you more in these last months than I had in the previous several years. I am glad I was there to hold your hand while you wept over the loss of your one true Love. Thanks for taking care of me my whole life, it was an honor to take care of you!
I will always Love you and miss you!
Love your Son Kraig"
