"It is so amazing how fast time passes; it has been 8 years since I saw your smile, your beautiful face, and felt your touch. What I have come to realize is no matter how much time goes by, my love for you never fades. I see your smile in my children and in my grandchildren. You and Grindaddy would be so thrilled to meet your great great grandchildren; you have 3 GG grandsons. Just know that they will hear all about you guys, they will know their Nannie and Grindaddy. I love and miss you so much Nannie!"

"Happy birthday to a very missed lady in my life. It has been almost 8 years since I last saw her smile, felt her touch, and kissed her head. There is not a day that goes by that I do not feel her in my heart. I came across some letters she wrote me over 20 years ago; her handwriting took me back, her words were like she was reading it to me aloud, and some of the information made me laugh all over again. My favorite part was, she ended every letter with a big heart and inside it she wrote; tell Steven and Sami we love them XOXOXO. Bitter/sweet moments are just that, but I take away a warm smile every time. I miss her terribly, but am grateful to call her my Nannie. Happy Birthday Nannie. Love, SueKel"

"Seven years ago I lost one of the most important people in my life. I miss her dearly but what continues to get me through those sad moments is her spirit; I see it in myself, my children, my mom, and my aunt. A habit, a word, and an action that she would have done or said, I see all of us doing or saying; this makes me smile. She may not be here with us on earth, but she is with us everyday in our hearts and spirit; how can I be sad about that? I'm not; I smile when I think about her! Love you Nannie!"

"Six years ago today, the Lord took my Mama to live with Him in heaven. I would give anything just to be able to talk to her again. Mama, we miss you each and every day and know you are in a better place along with Daddy. I love you."

"My favorite memory.... When I was a teenager we went to the movies to see Weekend at Bernie's, Nannie hadn't been to the movies in about 20 - 30 years... She laughed throughout the entire movie and was the loudest. I even think she peed herself... To this day, I still can't watch that movie without thinking of her... I love and miss you everyday... Happy Birthday Nannie!!!!"

"I can hardly believe it has been almost 5 years since.....she got on to me, told me I was spending too much, waved her hand at me, told me she loved me, or hugged my neck. I believe she is looking down on me everyday smiling. I see her in my children, I hear her in my mother's laugh, & see her smile when I look in the mirror. I am thankful for everything she left to me! Happy B-day Nannie!"
