7 years ago you left us in a hurry and unfortunately time has not slowed down since. I think about how much we have all experienced and how much our kids have changed in 7 years. It makes me so incredibly sad to not have you here physically to be a part of our new memories. I hope you are at peace and are enjoying watching over these amazing grandkids of yours. You created and nurtured a wonderful group of souls.  Even though you left without a goodbye I hope you knew how much we loved you and appreciated you!

Happy 64th birthday in Heaven, mom!! It still seems so unfair that you're celebrating there and not here with us. We are getting ready to fly out to New York for Emma's graduation tomorrow. I know you will be with us in spirit but it still isn't the same. I
Miss you and I wish I could have one more birthday with you to show you how incredible you are and how much we love you. Enjoy your day up there, we miss you like crazy down here! I love you.

Oh Mary, Jerry and I both miss you so much. We were just talking about how we miss your smile, your hugs, your laughter and all the great times we had. Can hardly believe it's been 3 years - we will miss you forever.

We are all missing you so much everyday, but especially today. You were an amazing mom and Grandma and we miss you. It is raining here today and I can't help but know that if you were still here you would be baking up a storm. I miss hearing your voice and all the gossip I have missed. I miss my biggest fan who was always on my side! Thank you for making our family what it is today. I know you are watching out for all of us and that gives me peace.

Mom - Thinking of you a lot lately and missing you especially today. It's still so unbelievable and yet so terribly real that you're gone. We all love you and miss you every day!

It's been 2 years, it doesn't seem real. It seems like it just happened but also like it's been an eternity. I could really use a good talk right now followed by one of your famous hugs! I still can't believe you're gone, my mom is gone. It's crazy to even think about! You were the best mom! We miss you so much!

Happy Birthday Mom! Can't believe you're spending another birthday without us. I miss you so much. Jax has been talking about you a lot. He says goodnight to you every night after he says his prayers. I hope you can hear him. Love you so much!
Your baby =)

Hey Mom, it's been a year already & it still feels like I should walk in and see you with your wild hair in the morning getting ready for work =). It is going to be a really tough day for all of us and I'm not sure how I'll get through work but I know you'll be here with us all day. I love you and miss you sooo much!

Mary, I can't believe you've been gone for a year now. I miss you everyday. I don't like going to work as much because you're not there. I miss having my friend there to talk with about whats going on. Tina is getting married soon. I wish you could be here to help celebrate it with me. Thanks for being my friend. Love You, Lori

Dear Mary - oh how this past year has been crappy without you - I miss your laugh and your haircuts! I loved coming to your "beauty shop" for laughs and good times. And we did have fun, didn't we. You are the best and we all miss you so much - fall's here and I can't make your favorite chili - and the football games won't be the same without you. I miss you and love you. Beth

Mary, I miss you so much!! I have much to tell you!! I think our card club is over- I know you would not be happy about that!! We always had such fun!! Your kids are amazing, Roy too. You would be so proud of all of them. I think I've lost some of my friends along the way the last 2 years. Only you would understand that!!! I miss you so much!!!! Rest in peace my dear friend.

Happy Birthday Mom! I miss you so much! Wish we could celebrate & take you out to the Hideaway Grill so you could get your corn nuggets

Hey Mom,
I'm really missing you today. Last night Abbey had a softball game and it made me realize that you won't be able to see any of Jaxons sport events & it really made me sad because you were always our biggest(and loudest =) ) fan in the stands. I think about you all the time & I miss you like crazy. Love you so much! your baby, Sadie

"Mary, I think of you every day. I miss your stories, your laughter, your advise and your hugs when I needed them. You always made me feel smart. I miss you so much!!!!!
