Though our time together was short, I will miss visiting you for Thanksgiving. It is always sad to lose a loved one, Time will heal they say, but time just seems to go on regardless of our pain. I am celebrating that you will no longer be in physical and emotional pain and I know that you are in the hands of our Lord. We love you and miss you very much.
Always in our hearts,

"What moves through us is a silence, a quiet sadness, a longing for one more day, one more word, one more touch. We may not understand why you left this earth so soon, or why you left before we were ready to say good-bye, but little by little, we begin to remember not just that you died, but that you lived. And that your life gave us memories too beautiful to forget"

Virginia and I were in the original Peer Specialist Training in Greeley. She went on to get a job at The Spot Drop In Center at Northrange behavior Health.
Because I was from McCook, Nebraska she always told me about her trips to Nebraska to visit her daughter and grandchildren. I know she loved her family very much.
So indeed as her earthly assignment ends she will be welcomed by Angeles in Heavenly Places.
My Sincere Sympathy to her family.

Mom, I want to thank you for everything you have done for Marie and I. You are a very special and loving person. No matter how hard times were or how tight money was you always found a way to get what we wanted and ever needed. You always put us kids first and We Love You So Much for the mother and friend you were to us. I know me and you didn't talk or even see each other in the last 10 years of your life. But Sam and I never stopped thinking about you or stopped caring for you . You are my Loving Mother and you will allays be with us through all the good times and hard time we all still have in life. You will always be in our Hearts. Now it's time for you to lay down and rest and be at peace and to be with all of your loved ones in heaven.
Your Son James-Cowboy
