MY DEAR SISTER WHERE DO I BEGIN, HOW DO I SAY HOW MUSH I LOVE YOU, I KNOW YOU KNEW HOW MUCH. HOW DO I SAY HOW MUCH I WILL MISS YOU, THERE ARE NO WORDS TO SAY HOW MUCH I WILL MISS YOU MY SISTER, MY FRIEND, ALWAYS & FOREVER .I LOVE YOU.

Mom, I miss you very very much. It hasn't been a week and seems like you are still here. The things i will miss, you saying "you need to come over here and cut the grass". 75 miles to cut grass who would have thought. It wasn't about the grass it was about coming over there getting your donut holes seeing your happy face when I pulled up. I will miss being able to take you to the Sliver Slipper to eat the crabs and having fun trying to figure out the machines (but we never did), it was great times we shared together.
When you were in the hospital you told me Dad was reaching his hand out to you a while back and you told him you were not ready, but it looks like you were ready last week, and both of you are together now. Mom we had a special love for each other from the beginning to the end, and you did the best in raising me as any mom could have.
I LOVE YOU MOM
P.S. I will see you in heaven with Pops and Steve Dude when the time is ready.
Bye Bye MOM.
Your loving son,
Jon Paul

To my beloved mother-in-law, MAMY JAMY: We shared many many years together even when we weren't mother & daughter-in-law like kindred spirits. One thing we always believed in was the good ole saying NEVER SAY NEVER . We were perfect examples of it! I will miss you deeply. I will miss my beach buddy, my it's five o'clock somewhere buddy, my music buddy & my NEVER SAY NEVER buddy! Most of all I will miss the closeness we shared as mother & daughter-in-law and as good friends! I will remember you in my mind, my heart and soul forever. Fly high in the gates of heaven... till we meet again sharing a drink or 2! I love you always, your daughter-in-law and friend,
Lee Ann

Mom, I will miss all the good times that we shared together especially having cocktails around the fire pit and the trips to the beach. Now it is time for you to reunite with Pops and Stephen in heaven. I will love you forever and miss you very much.

My condolences to Mrs Jo-Ann's family. I had wonderful memories of Mrs Jo-Ann, she was full of life. We used to work together at JCPENNEY'S. Her favorite words used to be " Just stuff it." God has a fire ball in heaven!

My family moved to Donna Ave when I was 5 yrs old. I just always remember Karen and the boys living down the street. I probably spent as much time at Ms JoAnn's house as my own especially in the summer. She was one of those nice Moms who would talk to kids. One afternoon when Karen and I drank a whole bottle of Boone's Farm Strawberry Hill (at 13) and I couldn't walk home she let me lay on the sofa till I felt better! She still chewed us out afterward πŸ˜„.
Ms JoAnn, I will always remember you fondly and with love and I know that heaven is rejoicing at your presence. There is no more pain, no more tears just joy and peace forevermore. ❀
Love you.
