I love you Aunt Kathy and already miss you so much. I’m so sad that you are no longer here with us but take great comfort in knowing you are now free from all your worldly pain. I will never forget the 49er sign you sketched and painted for me as a kid, it was the coolest thing and I was so proud of it!! For those of you who never knew (because Aunt Kathy was very humble about it and never wanted kudos for it) she was a very talented artist. I can only imagine the huge celebration that took place when you arrived in heaven, I love you and will never forget you Aunt Kathy. Rest In Peace until we meet again.

My sweet grandmother,
I am trying to find the right words to describe how much I miss you. I wish so badly to hug you again and just sit and talk with you. You were my best friend. I knew I could always talk to you about anything and you loved me for I was. I will never forget our phone calls, the laughs we had, and the amount of love you gave me. You were the best grandmother I could have ever asked for.
It’s been almost 6 hard months without you. I still can’t shake the feeling that you are gone. I was at work the other day and I was thinking about you. I stopped dead in my tracks at one point and it just hit me. I couldn’t call you, I couldn’t text you. It was almost as if my heart had been ripped out again. There are still traces of you everywhere I go. I see you everywhere I go. I know you are with me and I will never forget my beautiful grandma Kathy. I will see you again someday my sweet grandma. I love you so much ❤️

It has been almost 6 months since you left sister, I still can hardly believe you are really gone. I miss you so very much but I find comfort knowing you aren’t hurting anymore , I’m so thankful I was able to be in your life for the past 2 years and I will treasure the time I got too spend with you. All the times we laughed so hard we cried. All of our early mornings talking about our kids and grandkids , and all of the crazy things going on in this crazy world! I love you and will see you again some day! You are always on my mind and forever in my heart!!! Your little sister!

My sweet Sister, I miss our daily phone calls, our texts. I miss laughing with you, crying with you. I just miss you! A piece of my heart left the day you did. I’m doing better. I don’t cry everyday, but there are moments when reality hits me in the face and I realize I won’t see you again until I make it to heaven and in those moments the tears fall freely. You were so full of the love of Jesus and we all were better for having you in our lives. I’m so happy you’re with Jesus now and free from all the pain and those horrible panic attacks, but oh how I miss you! I cherish the relationship we had and I can’t wait to see you soon. Until then, know you live in my heart forever. I love you sister. Brenda

My sweet mamma bear, The other weekend I listened to your praise and worship playlist and it reminded me of this one Sunday morning before you left us. I was getting ready in my bathroom and I thought I heard you calling for me so I turned off my music, that’s when I realized it was you signing your praise and worship for church. I kept the music off and I just listened to you. It filled my heart with joy and love just like you filled my life with joy and love, your voice comforting me as always. I would give anything in this world for more time with you, more moments of your love, and to hear you singing again. Thank you for being the best mom I could ever ask for and my best friend in this crazy world. I miss our talks and our laughs, and I miss how you could always tell if something was wrong whether I told you or not and you always did anything to make me feel better. I miss you every single day, sometimes it’s so much I don’t think I can handle how much it hurts. But I try to find comfort in the fact that you are no longer suffering And that everyday in heaven is church, and you are singing in the choir up there in the sky. I love you, forever your baby bear.
