  1. Grandma, I miss you so much. Thank you for being such an amazing grandmother and an even better great grandmother to my kiddos. It makes my heart smile to know you are with aunt Christine again, I hope she met you at the heavenly gates with your own bag of potato chips since she does not share her bag! I will forever cherish all our memories, and I will keep your spirit alive and make sure my Kiana and Zoe will forever remember you. I know Julian will never forget you, thank you for always being such a helping hand with Julian. You helped me raise him right alongside my parents with me and I’m forever grateful to you for that. My heart is shattered with you gone, but I’m happy you are no longer in pain or suffering. It’s never a goodbye, it will always be I’ll see you later grandma! It’s your turn to rest now, you worked hard your whole life raising 7 kids on your own and you did a wonderful job. I’ll see you again one day, I’ll be right next to you in heaven one day and we will be together again! I know you are watching over us, and asked us not to cry but that was such an impossible ask we miss you so much! I love you my beautiful angel!

  9. Mom, since you’ve gone home to Heaven, I have been confronted by a profound loss. Even though it is temporary, part of my heart is surely missing. I thank God for the privilege and honor of calling you Mom and living with you almost 16 years.

    You brought joy to me and everyone who met you. I cannot begin to thank you enough for the gift of your precious son Gary, whom you raised to be a mighty man of God. I’m also thankful for being a part of the wonderful family you helped create and many wonderful memories. Until we are reunited, I know you are rejoicing and dancing on the streets of gold with Christine, Miss Bravo, and many other loved ones.

  10. Mom, words cannot express the gratitude, admiration, and love I have for you. You sacrificed your life so we kids could have ours. You are the personification of what pure love looks like. Of all the tough times we had growing up, and there were too many to count, I only remember the good! I would not change a moment as you shaped me into the person I am today. The values you instilled in me are priceless—courage, integrity, character, and an honesty matched by no one I have ever met in my lifetime.

    They say we are surrounded by angels in this life but I only know of one in mine, you mom!! I will cherish every moment and memory I have of you until we meet again. You have accomplished the greatest achievement anyone can achieve in this life: To stand before your Savior and your King to hear him say, “Well done, thou good and faithful servant!!”

    Love you with all my heart, and always will!

  11.
