I still miss you more and more everyday. I can’t believe that you’ve already been gone for so long. I miss going to your house and talking on the phone with you every night. Everything is different now, and if you were here then I feel like things would be so much better. You knew what to do in any situation and you were the sweetest person I’ve ever met. To this day I haven’t met someone that cares and genuinely loves me like you do. You are truly someone that I look up to, and I wish that when I’m older I can be a great mother and grandmother like you were. I love you Grandma.
Xoxo

For my Darling Mother
My Prayer for You
I pray you were sleeping softly and your suffering had since passed, as the Lords Angels came to you and whispered, "Your time on Earth has lapsed."
I can only imagine the relief you felt being lifted unto Christs arms, with many family & friends awaiting you it must have been so loving & sublime.
You know how much I love you, with all my heart and soul; just please know that all our sacred memories will forever be retold.
I pray you will not worry for us, and find comfort in always knowing; I am you and you are me, so I promise to keep our precious family going.
My Sweet and Loving Mother you will forever be by my side; I still can feel you watching me for all the rest of time
