Grandma, you were the strongest woman I knew and the strongest I have yet to meet. You became a mother to my dad when he needed one most. You were always quick to tell me you loved me and that you are so proud if me for all the good that I have accomplished recently we will meet again. I know now that you are with my mom and grandma Linda ad they are helping you to watch over all of us.
Love dearly James

mom,you are my first and last hero. A dear friend to so many, but my best friend for life. I'll always be grateful to you for teaching me the difference between right from wrong.Altho I missed a few many times. I always knew the difference,because of you. Mom you always made me want to be a better person. You set the bar high. I'll always keep trying as I had the best teacher life has to offer. I love you with all my life, and I'll miss your voice , for the rest of mine. Jo, Baby.
