For Pam and family, I can see She was a beautiful and loving person. So many wonderful thoughts here. May these words help you through this time. God took her up and She will be sharing her biscuits in heaven! It’s a blessing to know she loved the Lord and will have her reward there.

Oh Nanaw....... we will miss you more than you will ever know. You were an inspiration to so many people, not just your children, grandchildren, and great grandchildren, you were an inspiration to everyone you came into contact with. There was a radiance about you that was indescribable, you were an AMAZING woman. I will always remember the times we spent together, our long phone conversations, all the help you gave me when I was struggling to get through college (thank you for believing in me), the advice about life, parenting, and everything in between.
In your absence we will reminisce on days gone by, the laughs we shared and the memories that were made while you were here on Earth.
I hope Heaven is everything you imagined it would be and so much more.
Until we meet again, I love you!

Mom, from day one you took me into this family and accepted me as one of your own. Because of that love and grace, I’ve had this other wonderful family of siblings, nieces, nephews and the opportunity to build friendships and love. But, you led by example so it’s not surprising. What a gift you have been to all of us! Over the years, we’ve shared a lot, you and I, of deep sadness and the restorative nature of hope and family. I miss talking to you, and the “date nights “ we’d have over the phone with martinis in hand. You have been loved mighty and big.

Mom,

You were always there with wisdom, acceptance and advice. You never judged. You stood beside us, supported us in good times and bad. We always knew we were loved.

I am so glad you are my Mom

My son, Clint with Mom. He loved his Nanaw!!

Bales Family, I am so sorry for your loss. I will always remember my Great Aunts laugh and smile. I enjoyed seeing her at Great Grandmas birthdays in April every year. We had so much fun there. I can’t wait to see everyone again in Heaven one day.

Thoughts and prayers to all,
Tommy Black
