Been a week yesterday since you been gone and it hurts so much. I miss you we talked everyday and my phone hardly rings. Mom I miss you bc you were the one I would call to get advice from and to listen to you just talk about anything. Terry and I miss you more than anyone can even imagine. Mom you were in the rooms with me when I had both my kids and whenever I needed you. Hope and Anna still needed you but God needed you more. We have a guardian angel for sure. Keep watching over us all. I love you Mom now and always.

I'll keep you in my heart forever.
Love you always Momma
Love your Daughter

My beautiful grandmother, I never in a million years thought i'd loose you this young. You fought for a month straight and you never gave up, I am so heartbroken that you won't be here to watch me graduate or celebrate my birthdays or holidays. You mean so much to me and I don't know what to do without you, you always kept me straight when momma couldn't, I remember one year I stayed all my summer break with you and I basically moved in with you. I'm glad the last thing I ever said to you was "I love you" and it wasn't anything hateful, i'm glad you said it back. I didn't think after I walked out of that door that you wouldn't be able to tell me anything else or even look at me. But I know you are looking down on us and smiling, I know heaven is a beautiful place because they have YOU. I'm missing you so much right now. I miss going to the Flea Market every saturday and going to Taco Bell and then you complaining how you shouldn't of ate it becaude it messed your stomach up. You never failed to make someone smile or laugh, you always had a smile on your face and you'd always put other people first. You have impacted so many people's life, by just exisiting and being the kind-hearted person you were. I promise i'll make you proud. I love you more than words could ever explain, continue to watch over me, mom, terry and Hope.

Until we meet again,

I love you,

Rest In Paradise MooMoo.

-Your youngest granddaughter, Anna

I don't know where to start... First off, I've never suffered a lose like this, we all were so close for so long. We are going to miss your smile, your laugh, your scarcasim, your goofiness, your blunt mouth that made us all laugh, your OCD, (which by the way I catch myself doing, wonder where I learned it...), Going to Taco Bell...when I was little I didn't like Tacos, so you would get me McDonald's, n take it in Taco Bell while everyone ate. I remember when Hope was a baby n Candy working, only I could come and hold her and relieve you while you got a shower. Crocket, your nickname for David...or White Rambo! I have pictures of you riding dads bike through the yard... LMBO. Oh, and when Patriots won the Superbowl, I forget what year, he was knocking on your door....Patriots won!!! We had so many good times together. We miss you, we love you, until we see you again... You'll be in our hearts always!
