Tonight God has gained another angle. I have lost the greatest thing in my life tonight. God has called upon my mom to come walk with him. I have no words right now, my entire life has comes crashing down on me. I will never be able to explain what this woman has done for me. Until I see you again, rest easy. You are truly in Gods hands. I love you Mom, I will miss you forever.

Rest in paradise to one of the most selfless women I have ever known. Thank you for starting my love for Nutella and puzzles, and for always being someone I could rely on. I still cannot wrap my head around the fact that you are gone, but I find comfort in knowing you wont have to experience any more pain or suffering. I'll miss you Nona, until we meet again!!!

Carol,
The best Nona and Gram my kids could be blessed with.
A significant part of my boys and who they are.
The bond they shared, laughter, and love.
She was a wonderful Gram for my girls.
The way her face would light up when she would see the kids will forever be remembered.
My deepest condolences to everyone.
Gina and Kylee

Mom,
I think this is the hardest thing I've ever had to do. I know you're in a better place and you're no longer in pain. You will never have to worry about going for one more test or getting poked one more time. You are free of all your hoses and can now run free. Don't worry about us and we will all get dad through this.

I'm so glad we sat together last weekend and picked out my wedding dress and I know you'll be with me on my special day. I'm going to miss our daily phone calls and our 15 goodbyes. Who's Dave going to laugh at without all of our "oh I don't know" and all the "hehehe" and everything else we had little jokes for. Mom, you taught me so much, how to love with all my heart how to be kind and giving but you didn't teach me how to live without you. I will cherish every memory and hold them in my heart.

Mom, I love you so very much, I know I'll see you again but until then COCK-A-DOODLE-DO!!! I love you most I win!!!!!

How is it that I never saw your wings
when you were here with me?
When you closed your eyes and soared
to the Heavens I could hear the
faint flutter of your wings as you left.
Your body no longer on this side
your spirit here eternally I see your halo shine.
I close my eyes and see the multi-colored wings
surround me in my saddest moments and my happiest times.
Mother my angel God has given you your assignment
always my mother forever my angel.
You fly into my dreams and when I am asleep
I feel your wings brush against my face wiping away

Mom,
I just want to make sure you are ok? I know your in a place now where you feel good, no one is going to poke you anymore! We are all doing ok, we are taking care of pops! He misses you dearly, but we all will help him through. I am so sorry you didn’t get to meet Grady, but you can bet he will know all about his Nona! How wonderful she was, kind, caring fun loving! We will tell him everything about you!

Not sure what I am going to do with out the : Ahh.....Kevin my computers not working again! I guess I will just have to go and work on it anyway!

If flowers grow in heaven, Lord pick a bunch for me. Place them in my mother’s arms and tell her they’re from me. Tell her that I love and miss her and when she turns to smile, place a kiss upon her cheek and hold her for awhile.
Mom,
Please stop in and see me now and then, I need to know you’re ok in heaven!

Love you soooo much!
