Hi Mom
I can't believe your not here anymore in body but you are here in my heart. I will always remember you and a day doesn't go by that I haven't thought of you or won't think of you. I love you with all my heart and sole, I am missing your attitude with your two fists, hospital or sudden death I received them on many occasions you fisty one. I will also miss you and I talking about old times and drilling me on the old Country music when we listened to it. I bet your dancing around all the time.
Love you forever and love you for always.

My Sister-In-Law Lorna,

There are so many memories that I have of Lorna that it is hard to pick just one! I used to enjoy the lively banter back and forth between Lorna and her brother Ron. The sarcasm and witty remarks back and forth was hilarious to say the least. They just loved to “one up “ each other and no matter how hard Ron would nail her, Lorna was always able to nail him right back! Good times!
But I also remember the love that they shared. At the end of every visit was the big hug and kiss they exchanged and the “I Love You’s” that we’re always said. I remember being in awe of this simple but meaningful display of emotion between a brother and sister.
Dearest Lorna, you will be so missed. You have left holes in more than a few hearts with your passing. But someday those holes will fill up when we start to remember all of the wonderful memories that you left us with. Memories made up of your hilarious sense of humour, your kind and caring heart, your willingness to go above and beyond to help anyone who needed it, and the love that you so generously gave to all of your family.
And of course who can forget the feisty, down and dirty, no holds barred grit, that you were capable of, especially if one of your own was being threatened.
All of this wrapped up in a little tiny woman of, maybe five feet tall.
You will be sadly missed by your “baby” brother Ron, nephews, Ryan and Kyle, your niece Kyrsten, and me, Sandy!
You will always be, forever in our hearts and always on our minds.❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️
RIP Little Lady

Words cant express my love and appreciation for you. Never a day went by that I didnt know how much you loved me as well. I wish I had one more day, hour or minute to tell you just what you truly meant to me and my children but I know you knew. I will miss you every minute of everyday but I know you are with granny and gramps who you couldn't wait to see again. Today we said goodbye, but I will say Choi until we see each other again. I love you with all my heart. Love ya ma. ❤❤❤❤❤❤
It's time for you to fly with the angels.
