I want to say goodbye to a wonderful lady, a sweetheart, and the best mother in law you can have. You and Oscar were very special to our family, and we'll miss you . Thank you.

Hello Mom. I love you so much and I will miss you immensely. You have been such a wonderful influence on my life and I could’ve asked for a better mother and friend. I’m glad you’re now with dad and Pat and your other relatives and friends who have passed, but she will really be missed here. Kevin is a little brighter place today with you in it, and here is a little less bright without you here with us. I am peaceful and knowing that you were in gods hands, and you’re with daddy. Until we all meet again, know that I love you so much and I will miss you. Love, your son Michael

You were a Wonderful lady, a fantastic Mother and you were my best friend. I know you went to be with Daddy on his 87th birthday. I know he was very happy. I am glad you two are together again, but my heart is breaking because you are not here. I love you and Daddy so much. I will forever miss you. Until we meet again.

Love ya
Vicki (daughter)
