I remember family gatherings haven't been the same since you moved to Ohio. I miss the music, the food... no one makes a better duc a l'orange. Your smile and sweet voice. A beautiful lady with a laugh that erupts from the bottom of your heart. It was always a special treat with your presence at at any time. I love you!

I will never forget when you all invited Lori and I to have Thanksgiving dinner with your family. It was the best ever. It made our day. But the best part was when you told us that we were the first persons to ever join the Cole family for Thanksgiving.
Rest In Peace, you are loved and will be missed very much. Harry & Lori Nichols

Words can't begin to give weight to the break in my heart without you here to smother me with affection while I keep you close, as long as I can . Your life's journey was never simple or quiet. Often times my heart would break praying for a shift in current, letting you catch your breathe. I want you to know, you were much braver and stronger than you ever thought. Far more precious and more than enough, you were perfectly you. I'll never forget impromptu family concerts, singing our favs, while pickin and a grinnin. You defined unconditional love, acceptance, and support. I'll forever hold your example of how to be kind and merciful. You have loved us all and shown us what it truly is to be selfless in giving, forgiving even w/o apology, and believing in each one of us w/o fail or hesitation. You always cheered us on as we grew making sure we never had to face anything alone. Always available to show us love and lend a listening, sometimes biased, other times over protective ear accompanied by the absolute best of intentions. Many tight pocket days didn't stop you buying for your babies if they had a need or even just for the smile and gratitude knowing you were able to do that for someone you loved. Those were some of your favorite moments. The Sweet ones when all negativity melts away and your left with pure joy and warmth. I miss you so much already, but I know you've been drifting away for quite some time, you were so tired.. Please forgive any hurt feelings or missed moments I robbed us of, I should've made more time. You will always be in my thoughts and I'll cherish you in my heart always and forever. I'll never meet another soul quite like yours Momo. I wish I could hug and kiss you once more.. Oh, then share a coke and talk about anything you want. I'm grateful God picked you to be mine. Until I see you again Momo, With Love Always, Munk <3

So sorry to hear of my cousin's passing. Fond memories of visiting Her and Lee (Tacoma, WA) and Lee's Mandolin and showing off his silver certificates and two dollar bills. Things a kid remembers. ♥

I remember going to a auction with Momo once. We were hanging out with Nancy Sprule(sp?). I think that was the most fun i have ever seen her have honestly. Like... She was free.

I remember all the weird goofy sounds she would make when she couldn't really describe something. I remember coke and stroganoff... Walking on the beach...
