sleep soundly, mom

A wife, a mom, a granny too,
This is the legacy I have from you.
You showed me love and taught me right,
You gave me strength, and shined the light.
A stronger person would be hard to find,
And in your heart, you were always kind.
I saw that you were tired, pretending you weren't that way
With tearful eyes, I watched you suffer, and saw you fade away.
Although I love you dearly, I could not make you stay.
A golden heart stopped beating, on that life changing day
For all of us you gave your best,
Now the time has come for you to rest.
So go in peace, you've earned your sleep,
Your love is in my heart, embedded deep
I'll remember the good times and try not to be sad
But saying goodbye still hurts so very bad
I think of you with love today but that is nothing new
I thought about you yesterday and days before that too,
I think of you in silence, I often speak your name
I have all the memories and your picture in a frame
Your memory is my keepsake with which I'll never part
Your spirit lives within me Annie, forever in my heart.
I Love You!

My condolences to her family. I have the fondest memories of her and Antoinette dancing and singing to me when I was little. Rest in peace cousin.

Annie, you will always be in my heart and prayers

Annie, my sister, I am so sorry I couldn't be there with you in person, but my thoughts were always with you. I will always treasure our long conversations over the phone and the jokes we shared and laughed so much together. Sometimes you probably wanted me to shut up already, but you know me.
I know you are no longer in pain and are Home in Heaven with Mom, Dad, and Georgie.You will keep them in line, you have always been a very strong person and I always admired you for that.
Death leaves a heartache no one can heal, but Love leaves a memory no one can steal, and I will always carry that memory with me.
Rest In Peace Sis. Love you always

I will miss our afternoon talks. I will miss our laughter over really silly things. I will never forget our secret looks and quiet chuckles. Annie, you will be missed every day. I thank you so much for all that you have taught me about love and friendship.
I feel blessed to have known you and that you shared your life with me.
Love you always,

I will miss you more than any words can convey. You were an amazing and strong women and I will never ever forget you. I will celebrate the memories we've shared together always and I will be sure to make sure the boys remember you and how much you loved them.
I know in my mind that you are now in a better place and you are resting peacefully, but my heart aches for the loss of you. The realization of not being able to pick up the phone and you answering on the other end, hasn't fully processed in my mind. It is bittersweet knowing that you are no longer suffering but selfishly wanting you here with us. I think there will always be a void in my heart.
Thank you for all that you did and for being the person that you are. You had such a substantial influence on the person that I am and the person that I strive to be. You are wrapped in to the fibers of my being. And you will live on in me and in the boys as I will pass on to them the values and lessons you passed on to me.
You will forever be missed. I love you so much! And don't worry, we will take good care of Grandpa!
With all my heart,
May 23, 2014
My Mom. My best friend. My support.
She's not sick anymore but my heart is still broken. She is at peace.
I love you! I miss you!
