Robert, Remember your Mom is always in your heart. Cherish her memories and may you find strength in god at this difficult time.

Mom, I miss you so much. I know you are in heaven rejoicing but I sure wish you were here. I heard a song yesterday and it wasn't about being sad that you were in heaven but that I missed you and was selfish in that sense. I know you are reading and writing and are in the most beautiful place. I love you, momma. Your daughter, Margaret.

I cherish the memories of my childhood growing up in the house on Schuler. I remember your mom cooking up a storm and lots of large pots on the stove. I can't cook rice without washing it 3 times thanks to your precious Mom. May she rest in peace and you all cherish the memories she has left behind. With love and sympathy in my heart, Debbie Long
