Mom,
You were my rock, my guiding light. You stood by me no matter what. You praised me through my achievements and when I made a bad decision (and you know I made many) you were never afraid to tell me what a jackass I was. I could not have asked for a better mother and you will always hold a special place in my heart. I will never forget the lessons you taught and the wisdom you shared. I miss you so much and will until we meet again. I love you with all my heart!

Jody was my dearest friend for over 40 years. We went to nursing school together, then worked in the emergency room together for several years, which cemented a deep bond that could never be broken. We shared our lives and our challenges. Even though when she moved to Kansas we didn't stay in touch as much, she was always in my heart and I shall miss her forever.

Too many good times to post.
Jody was always quick with a smile, food, drinks and hospitality. Always made us feel so welcome.
She will be missed for sure.

Granny,

Where do I begin...you made a HUGE impact on my entire life. I can not ever thank you enough for continuing to be there for me when my life seemed to be shambles and be there to share and build some of the best memories I’ll have have. I was also blessed to have been able to give you 3 amazing great grandchildren who called you “GG”. You were so close to them and those special times with them they’ll carry forever. Granny you kept me alive a lot of the times when my health was no good. You made sure you cared for my kids as they cared for you lol!!! You all 4 kept each other alive. Granny I will miss you so much. But today is not goodbye it’s simply I’ll see you later. Thank you for waiting for me!! (You know what I mean)
Love your Jesse
P.S. you’ll always by MY LOVEBIRD OF LIFE!!!!
