"Dearest Mama,

I was extremely honoured & blessed to meet you for the 1st time in 2013 whilst on vacation from London & staying at my fathers house in Tweedside. We immediately clicked & I would visit you every year, with a bag of goodies including your favourite coffee, & regularly spend some time with you.

Your infectious smile (whilst in considerable pain) & words of wisdom will never be forgotten. The tsunami of love & affection that you projected was immense & profound.

You are the most beautiful woman with a heart of pure gold & I’m gonna miss you big time. You are now in the SUPER CLUB of ANGELS, which is reserved for the truly incredible.

I take comfort from knowing that you will never ever suffer intolerable physical pain again.

Rest in peace Mama - with much love ❤️"

"Wishing you comfort and peace during this time of sorrow.  Ps 34:18, 19 has been a favorite scripture for me during times of despair. It says: "Jehovah is close to the brokenhearted; He saves those who are crushed in spirit.  Many are the hardships of the righteous one, But Jehovah rescues him from them all." May those words ease your mind and heart as you face each day."

"Some people enter your life for a moment, others for a season and still others for a lifetime. Mama Iris entered my life at a time when I felt really abandoned and she remained for the lifetime.  There was never a dull moment when you are around her. Her love and compassion were unmeasurable and her smile very captivating. A true mother who took me under her wings as her own.I have never felt as if I am not family and for that I know I  owe her a lot.
November 4th 2017 was a memorable day for her. She told me as i lay beside her on the bed with my arms around her that the gathering was a wonderful farewell for her. All but one of her children were there and she mentioned Lamont not being there. She was smiling and she said she made peace with her maker and she wished all her children could find the peace she felt. Even though I kept  telling her she will live to see 100,she kept saying she will not live very long in the new year.
Looking back i can say mama knew her time was at hand.  I wish we all will be able to have the opportunity to be blessed with that chance but we know life is not like that. Let's take even a chapter out of the book that Mama Iris has written and as such carry on the legacy she has started those many years ago. Keep the Dixon legacy alive.Mama may  be gone from this earth but she is in heaven looking on. Farewell Sister Iris. Rest in peace. Soon come"

"It is with deep regret that I leave this tribute, as I was in Tweedside in December and never stopped by the house as I always would and now I will always regret it."

"My deepest sympathies to the family and friends. I know the death of a loved one can leave one feeling helpless and hopeless. But our heavenly Father has given us reasons to rejoice. He has promised to swallow up death forever. (Isaiah 25:8). At Revelation 21:3, 4 he has also promised to do away with all things that cause one to mourn or cry out in pain. All tears will be wiped away even death will become a thing of the past that will never to be brought to mind again. He also offers the hope of a resurrection of those we have lost in death. (John 5:28, 29) Just think, you have the opportunity of seeing your loved one again.  Just knowing of these promises can give a measure of comfort when our hearts are filled with grief."

"Mama mama what can I say? I will always remember sitting next to you as you were sewing and giving me the scraps so that I could sew dresses for my Barbie. Lol. You were the best.  The love you gave to everyone was unmatched. The generosity you showed was never reciprocated but nonetheless you were always more than willing to give what you had to anyone.  Your life and legacy will not go unrecognized. You are a woman that everywoman should strive to be.  You have instilled love in your family by showing unconditional love.  We know you’re happy we know you’re looking down on us and we know you’ll be praying for us every day.  Until we meet again my dear Iris, I love you from now till forever more. Trecia"

"You loved your kids, grandkids, and your husband unconditionally.
I’ve always adored how much you love your family, and to be honest that will forever stick to me and inspire me to have that kind of love. I miss you everyday Moma, and there’s not a day that I do not think about you. I wish that I saw you one last time, and I wish I got to say a proper goodbye, but I will make sure I tell My grandkids stories about you, I wish they could’ve spend time with you. But I know you are looking down on us and that you are finally at peace. Heaven gained an angel and I will see you again soon, Moma."

"As I was reminded lately angels Don't Die. Mama you are an angel you have been the most significant person in my life as a youth and growing up I live my life based on what you taught me. I give without expecting to receive. I love because I love not because I expect to be loved in return. You Are and were The Guiding Light in my life. I have honored you all my life by living in a way that would make you proud. Mama there is so much I can say but there is not enough words or enough space to put it all down. I love you I miss you and one of these days in the great beyond we will meet again. Rest in peace Mama until we see each other again."
