  1. Grandma – you struggled for so long & now you are with Jesus – the place we all long to be one day. I know this time apart is only for a short time compared to eternity with Jesus. I have so much peace knowing you are no longer in pain.

    I will forever miss your grace & generous heart. I will never forget the day my daughers got to meet you togher. Trinity & Felicity came to visit you at the Life Care facility the last few months you were with us. It was wonderful. We ate your favorite thing – ice cream – we played hide & seek – I heard your beautiful laugh & your voice as you did what you always enjoyed – play with children. To this day, every time they eat strawberry ice cream they remember that day we spent with you. I wish there could have been more of those moments, though I cherish every presious memory I have with you. Every so often I drink an orange soda with a chocolcate candy bar & I think about how you so enjoyed those things. I miss you deeply.

    Love,
    Hollie, Jeremy, Trinity & Felicity.

  2. My Deepest Sympathy my friends. Your Mother was truly a wonderful woman! May God give you the peace that passes all understanding, for He is the only one who can. Hope you are all well. God Bless You!
