Mom.i know we didn't always see eye to eye on.some things but it didn't mean that I didn't LOVE you. We always enjoyed coming on Sunday and fixing lunch and filling the house with love and laughter. We had a lot of great times together. Wish we could.still have that. Mom and dad were the glue that keep our family's together..I can remember all the people that stopped by to check all and see what all was going on ..all the grandbabies that we brought into that house. Lord sometimes I would tell mom and dad that WOW this house is just like a can of sardines so stuffed full with us all but we all enjoyed it all. Then it was time to go back to our homes and hope next Sunday would hurry up and be here again. If those walls could talk. LORD the story they could tell. .with heavy heart I'll have to say that mom you will suffer no more but we will with you and dad gone where will we go and enjoy.that Sunday lunch and see how much that each other had done or see how much our family had grown from last week to this week. Mom you will be just like dad. GONE BUT NEVER FORGOTTEN. LOVE AND MISS YOU AND DAD.

To the family, I am sorry for the grief that you are feeling. Knowing of God's love for you, continue to look to him when he " will wipe out all tears from our eyes, death, suffering, and pain will be no more "Revelation 21:3,4 He says death is an " enemy that will be brought to nothing " 1 Corinthians 15:26 How comforting to know that this will be a thing of the past and through Christ Jesus a resurrection for our loved ones.
