Bill, this is Bre from pizza inn. I am so sorry to hear about your loss. She was the sweetest and most caring person I've ever met and I love you both so much! I'm devastated that I wasn't able to come to her wake. I apologize because I would have been there if I had known. You both are like grand parents to me and I love you both so much! I hope you come back in and see me sometime. I sure will miss her beautiful smile. Love you always.

I am still sitting here in shock. My thoughts and prayers are with the family. I have had nothing but good memories of my Aunt Joan. I know she is not alone in the next world, as we have family there, I know in the future, we will all be together in a lickety split minute. We have share so much information back and forth. I love you Aunt Joan. Your nephew, Ed.

I miss my Momma so much but I would never wish her back here. I know she is now free from her sick, earthly body and is now happy and completely at peace in heaven worshipping the Lord.

I am thankful that God choose such a wonderful and loving Mother for me. Mom loved her family with all her heart ... we were her life.

I love you Momma!
