"Something always brings thoughts of you to mind.  Remember the sweet 8 month old tabby cat you gave to me?  He was the most loving and good natured pet I've ever had.  He was my mother's loving companion while I traveled. He was 17 when he died of old age, last week, so when a darling tabby finds you and curls up on your lap that's 'our' cat Barney."

"Hi Angel!
Should have put this in here on Saturday like I planned, but had bad back problems (you remember those) and just got able to get out of bed to get online. I guess I just can't seem to stop think that somehow you will come back to me. May be if I never stop waiting, I might look up sometime and you will be there? I love you and miss you more at this time than others, because that's when you were taken from me..I always miss you, but I guess some times are worse than others. I hope that you will lovingly hold me in your spirit, and continue to give me the strength to go on without you here by my side.
All my love forever and a day!"

This tribute was added by Sandy Swift on 6th November 2017

"Rhea it is so hard to believe time has passed so quickly since you left us. You are still such a beautiful part of my life, even if only in memories shared with others. After the death of another beautiful woman, my mother-in-law, we read a letter she left to us.  In it she referred to the death of her husband and said, "You never miss the Sun until the clouds come." I think of that often and it applies to you too my wonderful friend.  We had so many adventures, went through so much together, it felt like our friendship would just keep going forever.  Which it does, just in a different way. I miss your laugh, your wit, your Rheaisms and your incredible outlook on life.  You were the Sun for so many!  Love and miss you!   Sandy"

I still miss you, the laughs and your big heart. I can't believe the time has gone by so fast.  Seems like yesterday you were here. You were one of a kind and I think I always WILL miss you. They'll always be that void. You're there every time I walk in to the house. Will always love you."

It was your wedding anniversary too. That schoolmate get together was important, lasting, and a good thing.  Not to worry Rhea, your light is still working its magic."

"Happy 65th Birthday Big Sister. I am ashamed to say I didn't know this tribute site was still active. I am so sorry all this time and I could of been telling you how much I think of you and miss seeing you and most of all I miss when I feel really down, you would give me your Big Sister hug and I would feel like a child because your love would make it better. I remember when I was 10 yrs Old and you were going to adopt and raise me because mom and my dad fought so much. You were and still are my Hero.  I know you watched over me as a child and I feel your presence and smell your perfume often since you were taken from us. I want the doctor and hospital involved to know they are responsible for taking you too soon.  If it has already been done it has never been told to me or our sister in Mississippi. I hope it has been addressed and I can live in peace. I know it has been a long time and I should move on but it it has eaten at me for almost 4 years. To think that this could happen to another family. I guarantee they would make it known the hospital is responsible for the inept machine and possibly inept doctor. Maybe I am wrong but I feel more strongly the   So please know how much I love you and I wish you a Happy Heavenly Birthday "Big Sister""

     It is very difficult to comprehend where time has passed!  Some healing has taken place in the family, some due to being occupied in this rat-race here on planet Earth, however; deep inside all our hearts are broken and miss you!  Life is a test of strength, we march on despite all the pain and sorrow it throws, your memories are like an eternal torch that have touched so many!  Dannyboy is trying to move on in this world of ups and downs and I am proud of him, although his heart is yours and always will be, look over Dan keep him healthy, safe and content until the day you both will reunite.  May the Lord God keep you blessed in heaven and look over the family!  We love and miss you Rhea,  Michael xo"

"Rhea I still get the urge to pick up the phone and call you, then I remember....   You were larger than life when you were here with us and I still feel your presense often in my daily activities, especially when I look at our big yellow lab, Bear.  You would love him and he would adore you.  He was going to be the dog we shared and I have a feeling once he would have come to your house I would no longer have had a dog. :)  Things are just so different without you.  So many times I look around our house and picture you, Danny, Dugan and Riley here on one of the many wonderful visits from you and the boys. Even though they lasted a day or two it was always too soon when we had to part company.  The fun and laughter we shared are such treasures.  When my Mom died a huge chunk of the joy in my life left with her.  It is the same with your departure.  You are always in my heart my dear friend. Love, Sandy"

You have been on my mind lately and I think of you often. Brenden is getting so big and I can only imagine how much you would love him. I know that you have been his guardian Angel through all that he has gone through in his short little life already. I also know that you will be with us on Friday at his heart checkup. I don't think that I could have come this far without hearing those words that you always told me and I hear them everyday that is what keeps me going and knowing that Brenden is so strong because I believe that a little piece of you lives on in him because he has a beautiful smile as you always did and he is always a jolly and happy person just like you. I love you and you will always be in my heart forever. You are deeply missed down here and always will be. I LOVE YOU FOREVER AND ALWAYS.."

You are on my mind today as it seems to be troubling. I seem to think of you when my times are hard and the words that you always told me " HONEY LIFE MAY BE DIFFICULT BUT BE THANKFUL FOR EVERYDAY THAT YOU ARE HERE AND WHAT YOU HAVE ACCOMPLISHED OR WILL ACCOMPLISH." Today these words were with me as I was thinking of you as I was trying to teach the boys and wanted to just give up and then you were there to tell me you can do this and anything else you put your mind to.

One night after a fabulous dinner feast Dan got the quitar and started singing ,we all loved that.Not so long after that Rhea went into the kitchen and got her spoons started playing. First on her knee, then her hand, then on Dan's shoulder, then on the " girls". She was so proud of them. As I looked around the lani all of our friends were smiling,all of our eyes were sparkling, like hers. We all laughed till we cryed.

"Thank you Rhea Ann.  You were the best mother ever as you took care of all of us and loved all of us as your precious children.  Thank you Rhea Ann.  You were the best friend ever to bring happiness in our lives and open our eyes to see the joy of living.  My God, you were a personification of all that is noble, upstanding and worthwhile in life.  I cannot fathom that you are no longer with us. You were so full of life. You were one of those who have given us the best definition of being human. You dealt directly with life's confrontations with firmness but always with a bright smile and a hearty laugh.  You had fond memories of the past, lived in the present and always looked for the sunshine of tomorrow.  You were truly a most beautiful woman.  How did you always manage to get your hair and makeup like that!?  I loved your vocabulary.  Once when we were all having fun on your Florida lanai, Dan told me of your descriptation of some place as being quite "ovulent" and asked me what that could possibly mean. "Why Dan, it's some place with three instead of one dozen eggs on it!"  Rhea Ann liked that.
     Oh my, I miss you Rhea Ann. The passengers on your next flight are indeed the luckiest of all. Happy landings and looking forward to your wonderful and gracious greeting when it's our time to board the plane.  
     Love you Rhea Ann and Dan.    David Harning"

I knew you were the "ONE" for my brother when we first met, you were the wind beneath Dan's wings.  Rhea you kept Danny young and
confident through thick and thin, no matter how difficult the odds, you
and Dan as a team were champions.  Our family is suffering a great loss and sense of emptiness without you!   I always admired how you
firmly stood up for what you believed in and said it only as you could!
Rhea you will always be in our hearts, thoughts and prayers, and I know you will be watching over Danny, as myself and the family will do!
Good bye for now Rhea till we are all reunited on that "golden shore"
once again with the Lord as a family!"
