Mama, Another birthday come and gone and your presence is still deeply missed. I still have you near near not the same but I treasure it just as much. You and mummie were both here for Nessas wedding. Thank you, I love you and always will. Until we meet again.

Mama, There isn't a day that goes by that you aren't with me. I went to a Gypsy festival with the kids the other day and felt you right beside me. Always on the move, like a Gypsy. Never a dull moment when you were around and always the life of everything you did. I miss you everyday but I carry you in my heart and soul wherever I go. I love and miss you and will see you soon. Love always and forever Crystal

Hi mom, well today would have been your 75th Birthday. And we all know I️ would have planned something fun for us to do as a family today. No matter which birthday you had you always wanted to celebrate with the family. You would be up by now so excited to see the crazy plans I️ had made for the day to show you how special you are to me. You’ve been gone 5 years now and when your birthday comes around I️ tend to be sad most of the day now. So much has changed in life and I️ wish I️ could hold your hand and tell I️t all to you. You are incredibly missed by so many people. But by now you will know you have Aunt Shirley with you now. So celebrate your earth years with her. Just know I️ am ok and in good hands now. We may not be able to hug, but I️ can surely feel your presence today. I️ love you mom.

Hi Mom, Been thinking about you a lot. There seems to be real strong connection right now with you. Some days this is all still very hard that I don't get your wonderful hugs you would give me. I always think of it when I am going out the door and you would say "Can I have a hug". And I don't hear those words anymore. Some days I just pause at the door just wanting to hear those words again. I have been traveling the world mom. Just like I promised you I would continue to do. But I am sure you know this and are seeing the world right my my side. Just wanted to say I love and miss you. Muah!

I had a moment today where I went to say goodbye to a loved one, instead I said, "so long". It made me smile because it was Leona that told me many years ago that "it's not goodbye, I'll see you again soon". That's right, Leona... So long, I miss you and I know we will see each other again soon.
Posted by Tiffany Sparks on 19th December 2012
Today I could still feel you close. Inspirations of you popped in all day. I cried and I have laughed many times since you went home. You always taught me life's moments is what you make of it. And always allow yourself to feel. But to never let your feelings make your life. I love you and miss you terribly. I carry you in my heart.

In silence I hear your voice, in a crowd I smell your scent. You are amongst the stars now looking and watching over us girls as you always have. You have been through a lot in your life and you found salvation and peace with God. All the prayers that you have prayed for me have all been answered and I will always be greatful. Thank you for always being there and never giving up on me. <3

I laughed and cried while watching this beautiful tribute to Leona. I could see her telling a story, enjoying her grand kids, loving her daughters or exuding her gratitude to her life and her God. I know Leona was a believer and there for I also know she is being taken care of. I will miss her very much though. Thank you Leona for coming into my life and loving me as your own. All my love!
