 You would have been 75 today mom, I wonder how you would have looked, would you have let your hair go it's natural color by now..Lol !!! Would you still be doing your yardwork, planting flowers, etc. Maybe you would have traveled some, especially now that you have kids in other states. I know for sure you would have traveled with Aunt Linda!!! I know you would have LOVED your great grandchildren. (and being a grandma mom is the best, as you know!) so many things we will never know. Anyways, here's to memories of you and celebrating your life, until I see you again.......Love you mom

 I agree with Aunt Linda, your passing away left such a void in our lives, our hearts were heavy with grief in missing you so much. That morning that you went HOME was rough. After saying our goodbyes to you, and making sure that the coroners took gentle care with you and kept your favorite beanie on your head while your body was taken away was the hardest, it was my final "see you later mom". You looked beautiful still, even in death. You were finally not suffering anymore, and there was some relief in that, you looked peaceful, like you were sleeping.   I had to go for a walk later that morning, try to clear my head. I didn't want to be at your house anymore, I just wanted to go home and be wit h JIm and the boys.  I walked up the street and around the corner and just sat on the curb in front of someones home, and broke down crying.....when I finally looked up and looked across the street there was a huge tree and around it were dragonflies galore, flying all around this tree, there were so many. I've never seen anything like it, not before and not since your passing away. It brought me comfort in a way that I can't expalin without sounding crazy, but you know what I mean! It hasn't gotten easier with time, you are still missed today as much as you were missed the day you left, the void is still there. What gets us through each day is believing in eternal life with God, in believing that one day we will be together again. Until that day mom, you will always be missed, and you will always be loved so much by each of us. I look forward to seeing you again one day mom.    Love , your daughter.

Hello my beautiful sister,           It's so hard to believe you left this Earth and moved on to your new life in Heaven a long 8 years ago!! I remember this sad day like it was yesterday.   I remember that Tuesday when I had to drive home to go back to work, and I said "I'll see you next weekend" and kissed your hand and said goodbye, but I knew you wouldn't be with us in another week. Getting that phone call around 2:30am on Wed was one of the hardest days of all our lives. I lost my sister and my best friend that day!  You are loved soooo much!!

Always, forever and a day, your sister!!!      Linda

To my beautiful sister....

  I wish you a wonderful Heavenly 74th Birthday, (one day late, sorry) Had to take our mom on her daily drive and that day's was 193 miles long...I was sooo tired after that. I've had to watch her for 16 of the last 19 days due to my help not being available. I probably drove over 1200 miles taking her for drives each day. If she doesn't get taken on her drive, she really gets a toddler type temper tantrum attitude!! I had to buy 4 new tires because my old ones got worn out from all this driving in the past 2  almost years. Happy retirement, huh?? Enough of my complaining, but I could always talk to you about everything, so thanks for listening, long distance


  I love you and miss you more than words can say. You'd be so proud of how well Tammy dealt with all of the estate stress, and you'd be happy that Robert and Tracy found their new home in Tennessee. Your kids are doing ok. Remember...We're sisters, always, a forever and a day!!

Your sis, Linda

We celebrated our mom's 95th birthday a week ago from this past Saturday, and was glad Tammy could be up here to be a part of it.  It was too bad that Robert, Tracy, and John weren't able to get up here, but maybe around Mother's Day or sometime soon??    I miss you my sister, my best friend, my buddy...I miss the fun we had spending time together and going on our trips!!! I love you...Always, forever and a day!!! Your Sis

Hello my Beautiful.....Our mom's mind is getting more forgetful, her attitude can get more argumentative now, and it is hard to watch her change that way. It's like caring for a almost 95 yr old toddler. Taking showers and changing of dirty clothes is rare as she fights and argues when you ask either of her. Appetite is not as good, but she can still walk unassisted even though she is getting slower, and her balance is getting to be more of an issue. But at almost 95, she is ok enough. You would be saddened about how she is slowly declining. It's hard seeing the person that was once our mother, now behave like a child who tests a person sooooo much!!

   Anyway, not a day goes by that I don't miss you so much, but know I will always love you...Always, forever and a day!!!!! Your Sis

 Listening to your "Oldies but Goodies!"  Thinking of you with nothing but fond memories mom, miss you with all my heart.always will. Jared and I were chatting about you today, you are so missed and so loved. I hope you know this. Good night my beautiful mother,

 Death is nothing at all.It does not count. I have only slipped away to the next room.Nothing has happened. Everything remains exactly as it was. I am I, and you are you, and the old life that we lived so fondly together is untouched, unchanged. Whatever we were to each other, that we are still. Call me by my old familiar name. Speak of me in a way which you always used. Put no difference in your tone. Wear no forced air of solemnityor sorrow. Laugh as we always laughed at the little jokes that we enjoyed together. Play, smile, think of me, pray for me. Let my name be ever the household word that it always was.  Let it be spoken without effort, without the ghost of a shadow upon it. Life means all that it ever meant. It is the same as it ever was. There is absolute and unbroken continuity. What is death but a negligible accident? Why should I be out of mind because I am out of sight?  I am but waiting for you, for an interval, somewhere very near, just around the corner. All is well.

  Seven longs years have passed since that early morning on 7/30/08, when you made your passage from Earth to your new place in Heaven!! 

  My heart still yearns to hear your voice to laugh together, to go on our vacations together!! We would have a lot of fun in this Toyota Itasca RV!!  

I love you my sister, and always will...Always, forever and a day!!!   Your Sis

A picture of you I carry in my heart, I close my eyes to see it when the world gets dark. A memory of you I carry in my soul, I wrap it close around me when the nights get cold. If you ask how I am, I'd say just fine..but the truth is, if you could read my mind, not a day goes by that I don't think of you.

07-18-2015 1:35 AM -- By: linda,  From:  

Hello my beautiful sister,

 Your sis

Hello my beautiful sister,    Just to let you know that Frank died on Sat 4/4/15 of Cardiac Arrest. The girls are doing pretty ok, but have a big fiasco in dealing with his stuff and the old house his folks had in Carmichael. They will get it all taken care of in time.   I hope things are great in Heaven...we all still miss you very much, but keep you in our thoughts and close to our hearts always!! I love you my sister...Always, forever and a day, Your sister, Linda

Hello Angel of Heaven.......was thinking of my own mama and thought I would stop by and say hi to you. Was thinking about your beautiful daughter Tammy and what a blessing she has been to me. Thank you for her. Please give my mama a hug for me....... Always, Debbie

It's Good Friday, I have had you on my mind today. I wonder what you are doing up there in heaven??, I always picture you planting gardens and tending to beautiful flowers! You were so good at that. At times I wonder if you can hear me when I look for the brightest star at night and whisper how much I love and miss you. I hope you know that you are missed something terrible, and not just by me....but by all of us. Easter is this weekend, what a celebration it must be up there, I can only imagine! Sending my love to you in heaven..xoxo Love, your daughter
