You are loved, were loved, and will ALWAYS be loved. You were removed out of our lives way too soon. You touched many people with your large, giving heart. You will be missed by many. A lot of us will have a large hole in their heart. I am one of those hearts with a hole in it now. I will miss you tremendously! I will always have memories, but I wish we still had you. I love you little sister! Always and forever....

To my Darling wife I sit here in this lonely house and I look at pictures and I know you aren't here accept in my heart and spirit and will always be loved by me and everyone else you have touched in this life. You once told me you felt like you were never loved and you thought you were at the bottom of the barrel but that's not true you are at the top of the line. Your family loved you very much and Jonathan is devastated but you will always be in his heart. Everyone that you have touched will ever have someone like you ever again! I won't never have a traveling buddy to go with me on all are trips you are dearly loved and will never be forgotten but God got an angel and I hope you rest in peace your loving husband Michael.

You were my sister, my friend and my confidant. I thought you would always be there and am so very very sad that you won't! I love you so much and am hoping you are in a better place. Life will not be the same without your daily text messages wishing me a good morning or you checking up on me when I'm traveling. I am saddened we never got to take that trip together we always wanted. I cherish all of the memories we have made over the past 51 years and will never forget you. I will do my best to be great family to Johnathan and help him continue to grow into the awesome man I know he is meant to become. Always know I love you and when you died you took a piece of my heart! Love your sister, your best friend, your confidant Michelle

I can't believe you are gone....I loved you like my own mother and you were so unbelievably supportive anytime I needed to talk or vent you always extended your time for me and you were there for me on some of the darkest times of my life. I was so happy I could share the things I loved with you and you appreciated it so much. I always knew how to make you laugh even when you were sad and it kills me you aren't here but I believe you are in a much better place. I will always tell Weyland how great you were because he loved you too and I wish you could have stayed around to watch him grow 😢 I'm going to miss you immensely I love you very much and was proud to call you family.

I am so heartbroken that my baby cousin is no longer with us. I have watched her grow into a wonderful young woman. We just texted on the 16th. My life will be forever changed and I will miss our texts.

Mom I love you. I miss you so much already. I will never forget the smiles you gave me when I would come see you. The big hugs and all the love you showed. I'm not to sure what I'm going to do now that you are not around but I can promise you I will never give up. I am determined to show you and the world that your son is someone great and that you created a soul with so much ambitioin and drive to give our family a good name. I haven't been perfect but it's taught me things and I will not let that knowledge go to waist. For your honor for your dignity I will rise and we will be heard. Again I love you Mom rest easy and I will see you again.

You were my first friend when I moved to Florida we had some really great adventures we didn't always know where we were going sometimes we just got in the car and drove or we set for hours on the porch watching the horses. You are the only person that I trusted to watch my dogs here and I know they loved you. I cannot believe you're gone what am I going to do without my fruit loop. Imiss you so much already. I pray that you are at peace. I will always try to be here for Jonathan if he needs me I know how proud you and I are of our boys and how much we love them they are our world. Until we meet again my friend , my Fruit Loop Buddy. Love Milk
