My Gigi meant a lot to me. Every time I would see her she always had that amazing smile. She always gave me hope to push through the bad to see the good in things. She was the #1 person that i wanted to see my graduation. I wanted to see her face light up. She was a big role model for me and I always look up yo her. She loved her grand kids and great grand kids so much. I really never thought about this day, but my Gigi will forever be my favorite human and forever my best friend. Love always Maddie.

My kids say Grandma was always fun to talk to and play games with. We always knew she wanted us to do our best and that she had our best interests at heart. She watched the Aristocats movie and with us many times when we were younger. She loved that movie and would giggle when the cats were singing and playing the piano. We really liked going to her house and being able to visit her every Thanksgiving. We love her and miss her, and we know that she's in Heaven with our dad.

Logan Thurman:

What Gigi was to me. She was one of those people I would actually say "I love you too" back too. She was one of my well respected role models that I have. She would tell us what to do and expected it to be done, I guess you can say she's stubborn. I also have good memory's with her. Like during Christmas when she gives us our presents, we usually say things about them that made us laugh. Lets be honest here she had no taste in gift giving, but one thing she did have taste in was her jewelry. She would always be wearing Jewelry. Even on a simple trip to Alexandra she wore rings,necklaces and of course her earnings. I loved my great grandmother to the end and am sad that our journey together had ended here. I know shes probably reading this in heaven, so have fun with all our family we miss you, Love you GIgi.

Dear Gigi,



Don't know where to start but, I guess since the day I can remember I got picked up from school everyday by you we would go to your house and feed the cats and pay sorry. I would let you win by the way. I've always been scared of Casper. I have no idea why I guess cause he looks like a big white kangaroo. Things are going to be different without you. I learned respect from you. Well Gigi I hope to see you later in life. I am dedicating this year and next years baseball season to you. I love you gigi, rest easy.

My dearest Grandma,
Grandma, I love you with all of my heart. You are a crafty, stubborn, and honest woman. You would sure let me know when I was wrong or made it to the point of why I should do things your way. You always kept secrets that I told you from me to you. I loved talking to you because you would actually listen and I knew I could count on you for anything even though you say “Stephanie” but you would always find a way to help or give me advice. You have helped me through a lot in my young adulthood and made me who I am today even though you might not know it. I know that you are in a better place now; you have Grandpa, your mom, your dad and Pat. I know they were smiling from ear to ear to see you. Grandma I love you and I will miss you. Until we meet again Grandma.
Love,
Stephanie Faulk
You’re Grand-daughter

To My Grams,
I am going to miss you with all my heart. I wish I had more time with but I know that you are with Grandpa and Uncle Pat. I remember how every Wednesday you and I use to go out eat before confirmation and we would just talk about how school was going or how my day was. When we first moved to Louisiana you use to wake me for school, I know that I use to make you so mad cause I wouldn't get up. I am very grateful to have had you in my life for as long as I did. I am sorry I didn't see you as much after I left for the Army but when I did see you we just talk about life and how things where going. I remember one time I surprised you after church, you were sitting in the lobby and asked me what I was doing there. You had no idea I was even in town. You where always there for me to either to talk to or for other reasons. When you came to Kansas to see the twins after they where born I could see the joy on your face. You will always be in my heart and in my memories. I'm so thankful that I had you as my grandmother. I will always love you. i don't want to say goodbye to you. I've lost someone that means the world to me. I regret not seeing you more. I love you so much. This is not goodbye this I'll see you later. Love you Grams.

Love Always, Kenny

Debbie,

I was saddened to hear about your mother but now she is in heaven with your dad and brother. She always spoke to me when I would come to Immanuel. She was a very sweet lady, and you were blessed to have her as your mother. Praying for you and your family.
