  1. Rest in peace Gramma. I will always love you and remember all the great times we have had together. All the life lessons you have taught me and advice you have given me will stick with me forever. I know you are in heaven with The Lord now and you are shining down on us everyday. And I know you will continue to be there for me and the family for all the special times we will have in the future. I will miss you so much but it helps me to know, you are above watching over us all. I love you soo much, My newest guardian angel.

    Love, your granddaughter Brittany.

  2. God Took Her To His Loving Home

    God saw her getting tired, a cure was not to be.
    He wrapped her in his loving arms and whispered ‘Come with me.’
    She suffered much in silence, her spirit did not bend.
    She faced her pain with courage, until the very end.
    She tried so hard to stay with us but her fight was not in vain,
    God took her to His loving home and freed her from the pain.

    A Mother’s Message From Heaven

    I see you my darlings, all the time,
    I know everything you do.
    Would you believe, my dearest children
    I’m even closer now to you!
    I can see inside your minds,
    Indeed, inside your hearts,
    I even know you better now,
    Than I did before, sweethearts.
    I’ve always loved you – you know that,
    But maybe now I love you more,
    I love the adults that you’ve become,
    Just as I loved the child before.
    I know how much you miss me,
    Well, I surely miss you, too.
    I miss our talking and our laughing,
    And all we used to do.
    Whether you are six or sixty,
    You’ll always be my precious child.
    You’re the babies that I carried
    And the adults that helped me smile.
    What you need to understand,
    Though death has taken me away,
    Is that I’ve not left you, my darlings.
    I am still with you today.
    My family, I could never leave you;
    God, of course, would not want that.
    Physically, we are apart,
    But our hearts are still attached.
    I love you all the time,
    You cannot get away from me.
    That’s the way a Mother is
    Right until eternity.
    Every day I’m with you
    I see you from above,
    And I want for you to know
    How very much you’re dearly loved.

  3. Hello mom, I Miss you so much. But I know you are no longer suffering and you are with the 2 men you loved so much, Danny & David. We will all make it through this difficult time together as a family. I also want you to know that us kids did exactly what you wanted done when you passed. thank you for everything you have taught me growing up and being there when I needed a shoulder to cry on and someone to talk to as I am gonna miss that very much. I still find myself sometimes going to reach for the phone to call u and then saying to myself Jackie u can’t do that. I am very happy you got to see all your grand kids graduate from high school other then 2 of them as that was one thing you wanted. Well mom until we meet again Rest in Peace & I love you. Love always your daughter
