My grandmother was one of the strongest women I have ever met, and no question about it, for me a real life superhero. She taught me how to be compassionate for others even though they may not be compassionate for me, and how to lead my life in Christ’s foot steps. She was the first to hold me when I came into this world and I was honored to be holding her when she left us. You were the best grandmother anyone could ever ask for. You maybe gone from this cruel world, but you will never be forgotten from our hearts and minds. I love and miss you dearly as does everyone you left behind when you went to visit our Lord.

Mom - Thank you for our long conversations. Thank you for loving Christ and leading us all to Him. Thank you for being like Christ - always loving and forgiving us of our shortcomings. Joshua 24:15 ... for me and my house we will serve the Lord.

We are so sad right now because we miss you, but we are rejoicing that you are no longer in pain. We are thankful you are with Christ looking down on us - reminding us that all is well.

My Mother was a fantastic woman who's full of Love for everyone, especially her family. She Love her job at Lutheran Hospital as a Nursing Tech, taking care of the renal patients with which she had so much compassion for and was so very sad when she had to retire early due to her health. She would not let her disabilities get in the way of sharing her heart and humor with everyone. My Mom and I would always go on these little day or week-end trips to see family and friends. We would start our trips with her reading to me the devotions for that day while I drove, then we would pray, which made every trip special because the we knew the Lord guided our way to our destination and would return us back home safely. She was a rock to our entire family and did not like quarreling. Mostly she Loved our Lord Jesus Christ with all her heart and wanted all her children to believe in Christ and go to church. I'm so happy to say My Mother got her wish.
