  • You became my second Mom – you taught me so many things – and you were my undersatnding friend when I needed one. I will miss you on this earth and look forward to the day we meet again. You gave me the gift of your son in marriage and you raised him to be a strong and loving husband, father, a man of strong faith and principles – you did your Mother’s job very very well. I love you and you will be part of me forever.

  • Gram, We were special, the two of us, swimming, baking, laughing, watching soaps, sneaking grandpas chocolates, and loving each other. You and Grandpa were my rock, my constants, I could always count on your advice. I will miss you more than you will ever know. I do know that I now have an angel walking side by side with me with every step and breath I take. It is comforting to me right now knowing you are in a place with no pain and are in Gods precious hands. You will be missed! I will make you proud.
    Until we meet again,
    Nicole Marie
