Think about Mom all the time but still find it hard to believe its now been nine years since her passing. I will walk by a mirror and catch a glimpse of my refection and see how much I look like her.
I think back at how hard she worked just to make ends meet. And know how proud she would be to brag on the fact she has 8 great great grand children now!!! Wish I could have done more to help her. Forever Missed By your Loving Daughter

As each year passes we still have so many great memories, We share them with the kids and they will laugh and wish they would have got a chance to know you . But that is why it is so important for those of use to share things to keep the memories of those who are no longer with us in our hearts.

As time passes that doesn't mean that we don't miss these ones it causes us to recall so many memories some that make us laugh and some that make us cry. But as live goes on we reflect on who we are and how we can effort those in our own lives.

I still miss you so much and will until we meet again, my friend and my love. Not seeing you in your rose garden makes my heart ache. We shared so many great memories and conversations there. I think of you often.

This year is harder that ever , as we reach the fourth year of Mom being gone, Now Bobby is gone as well and Aunt Fay, and Uncle bud is not at his best, I try to reflect on things to bring me joy and hold back the tears, but even now that is hard as I get chocked up typing this tribute. I have confort knowing, that at the end of each life they were peaceful and no more pain to endure. Ecl: 9:5. The only pain is the pain left in each of our hearts of those of us left to endure life. We will miss each and every one of our loved ones but they will always be in our thoughts and hearts.

My dear friend = I have talked to you more in the last year than I probably did in the last 5 years of your life. I know that Bobby is with you now and find comfort in that. I cannot even begin to define how lonely I have been, not just since you left, but not without Bobby in my "earth" life. I will continue to talk to both of you whenever I want now, I miss both of you so much, but know you both are in a much better place with peace, love and harmony. I'll always love both of you.

I think of you so often now that Mom is so ill. She refers to me as "mama" when she's talking to others about me. Reminds me of how you moved so dearly in position in my life after Grandma passed. You Always were one I trusted with my deepest secrets and knew you would never judge me and would always love me. I miss you everyday and wait for the day we are all together again.

How quickly time has gone by, three years nearly, but in my heart I carry my thoughts of MOM daily. Or every time I walk by a mirrow. Times when I want to call and reach for the phone only to remember, that call can't be made. So my thoughts for the day is to reach out to all the ones you love because one day they may not be here.
Posted by DJ Boles on March 17, 2012
Hello my dear friend. Although you are not with us in body, I feel your spirit around us. I try my best to keep my eye on your beloved son. It's hard for me to look at your rose garden nowadays. Without you in the middle of them, they just aren't as beautiful as they once were. I miss you so much. I know that you are in a better place looking down on us with your wonderful smile.

My dear friend....I can't describe how much I miss you, in so many ways: seeing you at 5 AM in your rose garden; flagging me down on my way to work telling me to have a good day and kissing my cheek, your laughter, just everything about you.
Posted by Gale Carter on May 19, 2011
Auntie I can't believe its already been a year since you left us. Since you've been gone lifes been so crazy,scary,and hard to believe. My absolute test of sanity. I miss the loving, helping guidence of my "Black Hat" wearing Auntie.

Near and dear to my heart you are, I long for the day when I can once again share precious time with you. I hope soon I will see your smile and hear your laugh, cherish those quirky noises you make, and bask in the garden with a crossword puzzle.

You were a God send to me, my earth angel and at times "the wind beneath my wings". I love you and miss you so much. Thank you for the memories, the laughter and for always being there my dear friend.

Mothers teach us to love, to see beauty, to take our place in the world and to bloom there. You will always live in my heart. I will see you again as the scriptures tell us at Rev: 21:4&5 and John 5:28

Never Forgotten always in our hearts!

Shared by Carolin Collins-Melogno on May 19, 2012

No words can say how much we all miss Mom. Time has gone on but deep in our hearts we miss her every day. As we come to the days that brought the sadness, we get depressed, but then we have to move on, and reflect on the happer times. But no amount of time will ever take her away in our hearts. So many things I wish I could share but the pain still over takes me , so will share at later time. I hope every one will enjoy the photo taken just a few days before Moms passing.


Always and forever

The 3 Pieces of Me

Shared by Gale Carter on May 19, 2012

Since you've left us, and especially since mom's stroke, for me May is the most difficult time of the year. Nothing like a birthdate to remind you of a person and then drive the point that they're no longer here to celebrate it. Grandma's passing left a void in my life that nothings ever filled. But Auntie you were my next best thing. And even though the stroke has stolen parts of my mom that I miss very much, I thank God for everyday that I have her in my life. Tomorrow is their Birthdays & today is the day you left, So I just wanted to share this picture with you & Grandma to show you how well shes doing and let you know i'll keep doing what needs to be done till they day shes reunited with you all.

                                           All my Love and Kisses to all

Pins and needles

Shared by Carolin Collins-Melogno on May 27, 2010

One of the memories that came to me while reflecting our lives today was the time you took a peace of fabric and cut out a pair of capries for me when I was 13 , what makes it so special is we had no sewing machine and you took pins and neddles and sewed them by hand double stiched and lined then as well.  They were made so well that the lasted untill I got to big to fit into them. This is when I wanted to learn to to sew as well, and over time I to learned to sew quite well.
