I will always remember the many great times that I had with Great Mamm! From going to Estes park on our weekend rides with my grandparents, my mom, and great Mamm, to going over to her house to mow and do yard work! I also spent many days at her house, after school, doing homework and then playing on the organ that all of us great grand kids loved to play on. So many of us learned so much from this woman and the life that she lived. What an honor we all had to know her and to have her in our lives. Great Mamm, you will be missed and truly loved!! And you will always be in our hearts and memories!!

My favorite childhood memories were our trips to Colorado to stay with Mom Mom and Granddaddy. Having holiday dinners with them were the highlights. I loved their home and I miss them dearly.

When one loses their Mother, it brings their own mortality vividly to their consciousness. They realize that they are now without a Mother living on this earth, and their own passing is a step closer. Yet it does bring another kind of closeness to their Mother, maybe even in this fast paced world where it is not unusual to be hundreds, no, thousands of miles from your living Mother, but now that new closeness is just a look up and prayer away from your new heavenly Mother. Hello, Mother. Now we can come together often.

The thought of her brings the biggest Smile, she will always be a part of me and all of mine. Mammie lived and loved life to the fullest and touched all. My joy is that she is whole and with all who loved her and went before her. Mammie you shall forever live in my heart.

The memories of my Grandmother will live forever in my heart....from those cool summer Indian hills evenings in my PJ's perched on Mammies lap, my head resting on her chest her loving arms wrapped around me in my favorite blanket. The sound of her beautiful voice that hummed from deep inside her heart all the comfort a Grandmothers love could provide. The smell of Grandmas house on Thanksgiving and Christmas morning from the meal she had worked hard all week to prepare just so we would be able to share it all together as one large, loving, caring clan. The visits from Poppa and his Beauty Queen and his sharp Chevrolet filled with all the fruit and M&M's and candy corn four little, soon to be five grandkids could eat. And today as I walk beside her for the last time on this earth it is I and five other little boys who she once held and loved the very same way that hold her in their arms to the sound of her Irish bag pipes as she becomes the angel we all knew she was. I love you with all my heart Mammy

I wish my family could have seen Mammy more often, but the times we did hold lasting memories in my heart. I remember how she used to take a while to get up from sitting down and get her legs moving 'cuz her knees would be stiff. I thought that was so funny at the time......now I am living that "stiffness" and it ain't so funny!! Mammy was generous enough to give Rich one of her diamond rings so that he could give me an engagement ring when got engaged. I felt so special and honored! Mammy we LOVE YOU and will miss you dearly. Now you are at peace and pain-free in heaven laughing with our Lord and Savior.

I remember visiting her when I was very young and thinking she was such a great lady. When my family went to visit she was so good to us and just made you feel as if we grew up seeing her everyday. She had a bunker in her house that was stocked full of can goods and things a person would need in case of emergenacy (CHOCOLATE) and she said I could hide in there when I was playing hide and seek with my sisters and brother. I will always remember that trip and the stay at her house as a very happy memory from my childhood.
We Love You So Much
