Mom, I love you. I asked Dad, Nanny and others to meet you and take you home. I know they did. I have and will cherish all the wonderful memories of you I have in my heart. You were a very beautiful person inside and out. You did the best you could with what you had. I do understand that. Life was not easy or kind for you sometimes. You deserved so much better. I am praying that in the next life you will finally have the peace you so deserve. Until we meet again mom, I am praying for you and I love you. You have been and will be missed so much. Love Always....

Carolee(Sue) was my cousin. I lovedher from the moment we met such a kind loving person. She never knew a stranger toher they were friends she had yet to meet. She did not have an easy life but you would never have known itfrom her demeanor. She raised her children to be respectful loving adults. To her family was everything. The world has lost a bright shining star. My condolences to her children and family. You will never lose her as she will ways be in your hearts for that is where we keep our most precious things. Sleep peacefully dear Cuz until we meet again

Momma,
My heart is broken I will miss you,I know the rest of my life.
You truly were the ultimate example of what a mother is.
You were to me ,the original
Martha Stewart, you prepared
Some of the most delicious meals I've ever eaten
You loved us kids so much for our individuality ,strengths and weaknesses. You made the holidays so very special
With your homemade cookies and fudge
It would make willy Wonka envious . You, were kind and
Friendly to everyone you met.
Thank you for EVERYTHING.
Until I get to hug and kiss you again momma angel rest sweet momma. I love you. Cheryl xoxo
