Mama enjoyed her children, grandchildren and great grandchildren so much. We were honored to share caring for her these last five months in my home. Our prayers were answered for her to leave this world of turmoil peacefully, and she did. Enjoy strolling over heaven's gardens with our loved ones who already there worshiping our Lord and Savior in His beauty and glory. God be with you until we meet again. In my heart. Rhonda

TO THE WHOLE FAMILY, I AM SO SORRY FOR THE LOSS OF YOUR MOTHER AND GRANDMOTHER. SANDRA WAS MY BIG SISTER AND WE HAD OUR UPS AND DOWNS THROUGH THE YEARS, BUT WE GREW CLOSER IN THE LAST FEW YEARS. WE WENT TO THE MOUNTAINS AND BEACH TOGETHER AND HAD A GREAT TIME. I WILL ALWAYS TREASURE THE MEMORIES. I'M GLAD SHE IS NOT SUFFERING ANYMORE AND IS IN HEAVEN WITH ALL THE REST OF OUR LOVE ONES. WHAT A GLORIOUS SIGHT THAT MUST HAVE BEEN. I KNOW WE WILL ALL SEE HER AGAIN ONE DAY AND UNTIL THEN REST IN PEACE MY BEAUTIFUL SUSTER! I LOVE YOU!

I am so glad my siblings and I were there to walk our Mama home.
We believe she is strolling in heaven with our Daddy and her grandson Luke that she asked about numerous times.
Our family will miss her but know we will be with all of them when our time comes.
I love you Mama, give my Daddy a kiss from me.
Love Your Middle Baby

Karen, I am so sorry to hear about your Mother. I was in that same place in 2015 when my Mama passed away, so I understand. You and your family are in my thoughts and prayers.
