Grandma I'm so sorry I didn't call you more often. I regret it everyday. I miss you so much. Your laugh, your smell and your cheesecake☺. I hope your are up there with Daddy. He wanted to come see you, then you were gone. It was too late. Give Daddy lots of love for me. I love you.

I already miss our Saturday talks. Give everyone my love. You were the glue that held this family together. Glad your pain is gone now. Jesus is such a wonderful Savior. He promised us eternal salvation. What a day it will be when we are all together.

Mom , I don't know where to start I love and miss you so much . Even though we tried to prepare ourselves for this day it doesn't make it any easier . You were the only parent I had since I was 5 and you were always there whenever I needed anything. I will never forget you mom , I know you are happy to be with dad now after so many years , just know that when you left us you took a part of us with you . We read your words the other day and I just want to say I'm so sorry that we let life get in the way of visiting more often , I wish I could go back and change that . Please tell dad I said I love him and we will see you both when its our turn , I love you mom and I will never forget you , Love your son
