  1. CandleImageMom I miss you terribly but I hold your memory, love, and compassion in my heart.

    Death is an inescapable part of living…both are intertwined…
    I believe birth, as well as death are a part of God’s master plan.
    Human beings are a wonderment intricately designed.
    Yet this knowledge fails to make death easier at times to understand.
    Our bodies are but vessels that harbor our soul…
    shells that have a predefined lifespan.
    Live life, embrace God’s love, be whole.
    Live well and love… while you can.
    Embrace the morning in all of its glory…
    soak in the sunshine and breath in fresh air.
    As the rustling wind in the trees tells an unending story…
    carrying the spirit of those that are lost or that have fallen somewhere.
    Be not sad, the vessel has departed…
    Memories, moments, the essence lives on.
    So do not be sad, be lighthearted…
    our loved ones are never truly gone.
    Though you are sad and feel so alone…
    Your loved ones are always near.
    Bound by the attachments in life that they had known…
    In memory and spirit they will always be here.
    So sit quietly alone in the breeze…
    or even next to a babbling creek.
    Perhaps they will be passing through the trees…
    Perhaps nature will echo, and you may hear them speak?
    All that has come and gone before…
    vessels exhausted, releasing their soul.
    Those that have passed on and are here no more…
    are walking beside us in spirit and keeping us whole.
    Guiding our footfalls along the way…
    they are our angels that quietly follow our journey.
    Helping us up to face the new day…
    giving us the support and the energy.
    So when life is at its very worst…
    one should never feel alone.
    Their spirit is not the first…
    to be a protector to those they have known.
    Never feel you walk this life without any connection,
    as our loved ones still remain.
    Bound by love and affection…
    They are no longer suffering or in pain.
    They are unable to tell us what choices to make…
    or to physically hold us it is true.
    They are here to guide, not to give or to take…
    to watch over, protect and to comfort you.
    Some say they are just memories that live on in the heart…
    I believe we carry all those we cherish within.
    Our angels are an extension; there is no end or start…
    Until the day we die and are reunited with our loved ones once again.
    By Diana Elaine Bolton

  2. CandleImageHappy birthday grandma, its seems so odd to not have you here in person to celebrate. You always said I was your birthday present being born a day after but really you were always the best gift I could ever have. To be able to see you, feel your hugs and hear your voice is all I yearn for. I know you are here in spirit surrounding the family today and everyday and that brings us comfort knowing that you could be here and not be in pain anymore. All I can wish for is that grandpa could live the life I know you want him to before he reunites with you one last time. We all hope that won’t be for a long time, having him here is having your other half here. I’m so grateful he has been such an amazing husband, dad, and grandpa & everyone sees why you both are a perfect match. I thank you grandma for bringing nothing but happiness and joy into my life. I miss & love you more than words can explain. You are forever in my heart.

  3. I remember Sharon from way back when she lived across the street from us when we were kids. She was always smiling and happy, sweet and fun loving. She will be missed by all.
    She was a wonderful Christian woman and I know she is singing in heaven today.

  4. CandleImageOur sincerest condolences go out to Albert, Earl, Diana, Elisabeth and family. I have so many fond memories of growing up with Diana and spending the night at their house, and let’s not forget the many, many hours of playing rummy on Friday nights. Sharon was always very patient and kind, and full of wisdom. I know I learned a lot from her and I will forever treasure my memories of her. May God bless each and every one of you.

    Love, Wadene & John Bloms & Family

  5. CandleImageI can barely think of how to put my love and admiration of you into words mom. You are pain free now and reunited with so many family and friends who are lucky to get you back. I look forward to embracing you again one day and will help keep dad in line. He already bought a huge chunk of gouda.

  6. CandleImageAlbert en kinderen kleinkinderen
