My dear mother and friend. I miss you. There have been several things in just a few days, that the thought popped into my head "I have to remember to tell mom when I see her". These pass two years have been hard but amazing. God arranged my life to spend more time with you. I know it was something you needed, and so did I. I will cherish our times together, even when we sat in silence. You looked so peaceful when you left this world. I know everyone was there to great you as you entered into Heaven. You are missed by everyone. Boomer sends his love. He expects to see Grandma in the car on days I come home in the middle of the day. Until we see each other again. I love you.

I miss you more than words can say Grandma. I have so many good memories with you that I will hold against my heart forever. I remember you handing me a bowl and picking mulberries off your mulberry tree, eating a few while I pick them. I remember you painting my nails when I was little and not taking my old nail polish off (it was a stylish look for sure!). I remember you sitting in your favorite chair with a good book in hand and Jeopardy on the TV in the background. I remember eagerly waiting for the bin full of new clothes you'd always give my brother and I for Christmas every year, making a big fashion show out of opening the bin. And most of all, I remember you telling me a story about you reading to me when I was very little and I turned to you and said "One day I'm going to be a teacher Grandma!" and you watched me fufill that dream as I walked accross a graduation stage and completed my first year of teaching. You were always so proud of me and I hope you continue to be proud up in heaven. Visit me often Grandma, love you.
Your Granddaughter,
Valerie 🌹

Mom, you are missed so much it hurts inside. Your grand-kids loved you so much and will always remember you as loving, hugging a little to hard, and that you gave them so many wonderful memories. You were a very strong woman!!! I am so lucky to be part of the family and got to marry your son. I will always remember the loving in your eyes whenever we saw you. You are with the angels now and they are lucky to have you. Love you Mom, your daughter-in-law Kristi.

words cannot describe how much i miss you grandma, from day one you were nothing but loyal and loving to us, from your constant spoiling by sending us clothes, to your hugs that were always just a bit to hard, to your kisses that left big smiles on our faces, i still remember when i would mow your lawn and constantly giggle at the fact that your riding lawnmower was so much fun, and wendies for a job well done, we miss you grandma, may you rest in peace
