I always told you that you are my Hero. You are everything I aspired to be. The Bond, Love, Compassion, Strength, Respect, and Kindness that is you have been permanently infused in me. Thank you Mom for all these blessings, but most of all thank you for being my best Friend of Life. I will forever remember those big Beautiful smiles that you gave to me each and every morning when I woke you up and that loving kiss on my cheek, and the soft caress of your hand upon my face. Oh Mom how I long to be with you where you are. My Heart pumps my blood but it has no beat. My mind wanders without direction. My days are filled with daily actions that seem to have lost its meaning. Thank you for the I Love yous' that have to last me a lifetime now. I don't know what I'm truly going to do without you Angel but until God calls me home I pray that you will guide me and you caress me with the gentle breezes and comfort me with loving whispers heard in my heart. I Love You with all that I am and I will hold you dearly within my being. Until I see you again. With All My Love," Love Bug" forever your son Love Dean💖💖💖💖💖

To my lovely older sister, my heart is sad and heavy with grief. I know you are in a better place(heaven) with no pain and suffering.I remember us growing up together,you and I took piano lessons. You loved the piano and I loved the organ. We would play the piano at school assemblies. We would go to choir practice you sang soprano and I sang alto, those were the days.As we got older we would always keep in touch by phone. You would always call me at the right time when I had my blue days. You were always smiling and happy and then before I knew it I was in better spirit. We always knew what to say to one another. I will miss that very much. I love you with all my heart and never forget you. You have wings now and you are with all the angels above. Heaven is a wonderful place with no pain and suffering.

“My” sister, I will miss your smiles, your laughter and the phone conversations that we had. I wish heaven had a telephone so that we could still talk. Despite you now being in heaven, you’ll forever be in my heart and I know you’ll send me signs that you are still with me. I will cherish all of the moments of laughter and fun, and our childhood memories. I love you my sister and will miss you dearly but I know you’re one of my angels in heaven. You may be gone, but never forgotten.

Aunti Mary you were one of the most kindest, generous, sweetest souls I could have ever been blessed with in my life. Thank you for your genuine love, for believing in me in all my life goals, and for teaching me that’s it’s okay to be kind and say “I love you” to people you love. I’m going to miss hearing your voice and hearing you tell me you love me and god bless at the end of all our conversations. Although I can’t see your smiling face anymore, I find so much comfort in knowing you’re not in pain. Heaven truly gained the purest definition of an angel. I love you and continue to watch over me with my other angels. You’ll forever be missed sweetheart.

To my beautiful grandmother, god has taken you to be another one of his angles. Although it’s hard to say goodbye too you it’s not goodbye forever, for all of us sadend by your departure will meet again one day and smile together. Your pain is now gone and you are free and able to spread your angle wings to watch over all of us. I’ll never forget the times and memories we have made together from the first time of you holding me when I was born to the last time I kissed your forehead and lips goodbye and telling you to stay strong and that I love you. I will cherish the times you made me giggle like when you danced and sang or held my hand and told me to smile cause it made you happy to see me smile or the times I got to say a quick hello over the phone and the times we had to visit each other and some of the silly faces you would make although those are just some memories there are many many more I’ll never forget. I am deeply saddened that I was not there to say goodbye to you one last time and that I love you. Your smile and beauty and loving caring heart will never escape my mind but will forever be cherrised in my heart. Rest easy sweetheart and I’ll seen you soon. Your granddaughter Mckayla
