Today would have been your 82nd birthday and I still think of you all the time. The pain is better now, but it still hurts. I was blessed to have you as my mother and even more blessed to know that you were baptized before you died. We will see each other again.

Today our mother would have been 81 years old. There are no words to describe the love we have for each other. She was a special person, everyone that knew her loved her. I like to remember the time we had together the last 8 years she was with us. We lived under the same roof and spent so many wonderful moments together just talking about whatever she wanted to talk about past, present and future. We were blessed to be able to bring her home to spend time with her here before she left. I will always treasure that time also. The best thing my mother did for us is to get baptized in Jesus Name 4 days before she left. Now we know we will see her again. Thank you mom.

Mom it has been 2 years today and I just spent some time smelling of the pink robe that still smells like you. Mama, I miss you so much and I am sure I always will. I just wish I could talk to you and hug you. Just to hear your voice. I love you and always will.
Your Sugga Bugga, Colleen.

You would have been 80 years old this birthday. We always celebrated your birthday on December 22nd until a few years ago when we found out that you were actually born on December 21st. That is just one of the many sweet memories I have of you Mom. You were the "Best Mom a girl could have ever had" and I miss you everyday. I will always love you...

I love you Mom. You are the best Mom a girl could have ever had. Today it has been 9 months since you left this world for the next and eventhough I miss the human experience of hugs, kisses and talking, I know you are in a better place. We will all be together again. I have that promise from the LORD and I know it will happen. I put some flowers on your grave on Thanksgiving, but I know you are not there. You are with our LORD. I love you MaMa forever. Your daughter.......
