I had prayed all my life to God, "please let me see my Mom again just once" . It was so amazing to see you when you helped Uncle Charlie pass over , you were such a bright shining orb dancing all over the room as he called out "Ona Lee" . I sat and cried , my wish finally came true. He even said it was his sister, Ona Lee coming to get him and that the place was beautiful. I am so thankful for the video that was sent to me. I rest easy knowing that it was you. Love you Mama. Til we meet again...

Hi Ona, just checking in to show my support for your beautiful daughter Carolyn. Such a love she had for you, and such a tragedy she lost you when she was so young. RIP ONA. Bob

This touches me deeply to write to you Ona Lee because so many times during mine and Tracy's marriage....I had wished you were there. I had wished you were there for him and I wished you were there for all of us! To love your awesome grandchildren and the families that surrounded them. It honors me to know that mine and Tracy's grandson carries your sweet spirit within him. And it brings great comfort to know that even though circumstances have happened through the years, we are all still very much family at heart. That makes me happy. What a beautiful part of you we are blessed with through Carolyn....it helps us know you here on earth until we meet you in heaven. A beautiful Wife, Mother, Mother-in-Law, Grandmother, and Great Grandmother you are .

Hi Ona Lee, I don't know you but communicate with your daughter Carolyn on facebook. We kind of have mutual interests in that we both suffered a tragic loss. But like Carolyn, I believe we'll all meet again one day. We live on hope for the future after we leave this mortal coil we call earth. It will be a glorious day. But, I hurt for Carolyn as she lost you at such a young age. You both missed out on so much love and lasting memories. God bless.

I never had the opportunity to meet you in my lifetime because you were taken way too soon, Ona Lee. But, I know you well and have always loved you. I married your son, James Keith. He was my best friend and was so much fun. He loved you beyond measure and was so protective of you and your memory. He and I have 2 sons, John Stephen and Matthew Todd. John is named after your two babies who you lost early. Your daughter, Carolyn, is beautiful....she looks like you and has a sweet, sweet spirit. She and I are like sisters and when we both lived in Tahlequah at the same time, many people thought we were sisters! Keith loved her dearly and was like a father and brother to her. You had beautiful children: Keith, Carolyn, and Tracy. They all three have great-looking children: John, Matt, Natalie, Kaitlin, and Bryan. And, now you have great-grandchildren: Weston and Kingston! Thank you for being so pretty and so sweet.....your legacy continues.

Hi Carolyn, glad to see you got started on your moms memorial. This is a beautiful place for her, and will give you a chance to further heal as you write to her. Make sure you let her know what's been going on in your life. I don't know what our loved ones hear, see, or know about what we're doing, but just in case, we need to let them know we still love them today as much as yesterday. Your mom was a very attractive lady. Carolyn, keep your site up, and pay homage to your mom. I wish you the best.

I remember the day my Mom died. I was playing outside in the front yard and a lady ( who I don't remember) came out and gently told me she had passed on. I will always remember telling that lady, " It's okay , she's an angel now and doesn't have to be sick anymore". I was almost 8 years old. I have missed her for almost 50 years now, but I have always felt her presence in my life and love her so much.
