Our memories of love and friendship are treasures we will carry with us, always , lil Sis. Memories are the legacy of love . When the Lord called you home , he left a gift of memories in exchange. You will always have a place in our hearts.
Death takes the body. GOD takes the soul. Our mind holds the memories . Our hearts keep the love. Our faith let’s us know we will meet again.

My favorite thing about nana is that she taught everyone how to love and be humble to give others what you barley have and to share laughter with close ones i will never forget all that was taught to me.

Mama,
You left us way too soon. You were absolutely the best mom and Nana that we could have ever asked for & in the morning we will do the hardest thing we have ever done & that is saying our final goodbyes to the woman who was loved by so many, but no one loved you more than your family. And we will finally be bringing you home just as you wanted. But, you touched so many lives that none of us will ever be the same. No longer will I be bringing you the fresh cut bouquets that you loved so much. No longer will I be bringing you a card that you always complained made you cry. No longer will I have anyone to talk history with. No one I can call when I need advice on life or when I mess up a recipe, I won't be able to call you and ask how to fix it. How will I go on? How can I be strong when inside I'm falling apart? I'm your daughter and I will honor your memory and go on with my life, but there will always be a piece of me missing. Your memory will live on in the hearts of your children, your grandchildren, & your great grandchildren. I know that Grandma and your dad have you wrapped in their arms and that brings me a small amount of comfort. You made me who I am and I hope I will make you proud. So, it's not goodbye, it's see you in the next life. I love you and there will never be a day that I will not miss you. That I will not want that one more conversation.

~~ Fly High & Rest Easy, Mama~~
No one deserves SaintHood more than your.

Your loving daughter,
Mary Beth

Mom,
I don't really have the words to express how much sorrow I am feeling right now. You were always my rock and would always listen to me when I had problems. I will miss your sound advice. You were not only my mom but my best friend. It is so hard for me to believe that I can't pick up the phone and call you. I talked to you everyday and will not be able to hear your voice again. When I felt as if no one else wanted me you showed me that I was wrong. The love you showed to all of us will forever be unmatched. You taught me how to love unconditionally. You gave your life so we could have one. You sacrificed everything so we wouldn't go without. That carried on to your grandkids and great grandkids. The life that you lived will never be forgotten and you will never be replaced. This will be the hardest thing I have ever had to do but because you were my mom and showed me how to be strong and I will make it through this. It will be tough but I will keep on. When times got hard you never gave up and I will never give up. You taught me so much and I am appreciative for everything. Thank you for loving me and loving this family. I love you mom always and forever. You are at peace now and you are not suffering and I know you will be looking down on this family you created and watching over each and every one of us.

My sweet, sweet nana, I am going to miss you so much. I have 29 years of memories with you I could fill up this whole page and then some. I wish I could go back to when I was a little kid riding in the very back of a station wagon with Alexis on the way to the Parkway with Granny. It didn't matter if you didn't have much you always made sure that we always got something, no one was ever left out. You were there with me when I had my first and second children. You will always be with me in my heart and not a day will go by that I wont talk to you or think of you. Thank you for being there for me and thank you for everything that you have EVER done for me and the kids. We love you and will miss you so much. This life will never be the same without you.
Rest Easy and Fly High!! XOXOXO
Amanda

Estelle was the best grandmother I could ever ask for. She always made sure that no one was ever left out, and she made sure she would give us something for Christmas or our birthdays even if it wasnt much. You will be miss by many so you may rest in peace. Love you nana.

The most wonderful mother in law that anybody could ask for as I got treated as one of your own. I never felt like a son in law as I got treated like the rest the of your sons. You made sure that I wasn’t hungry when I visited and lot of times you had me some food to take home as you knew I loved garden fresh cooked vegetables. You will be missed and thank you for being in my life. Good bye for now......
