Hey mom. We just had our first Thanksgiving without you and today is your birthday. Needless to say it was tough without you there. We got through it but we missed you so much. You was always our source of happiness every day but especially on holidays. You was so loving and caring and a bundle of laughs. Me Belinda and Deborah will keep it going and we will always dedicate each holiday to you and drink a margarita for you in honor for you. I know you would want us to be happy and be sad but we kids are very close and we will stay that way. You and dad are together again and that im happy yall are. Me Belinda and Deborah will be back with you when God calls us home. You are the greatest mom . You and dad made us good people in life and we will always be. Holly loves you mom and misses you. You and dad have a dance for us. We love you mom.

Hey Momma, been one month today you went to be with your parents, sister and Dad. Still so very hard without you here making me smile with your happy smiles, hugs, and silliness.
The house seems so empty now. I don't question it because I know our Lord only does what he needs to do but, I sure don't like it.
Found some younger pictures of you I don't think I have ever seen. That put a giant smile on my face. Also found some letters you wrote to Dad while he was out of town with work in 1968. I am so glad you kept small things like that because it sure made me happy seeing them.
I love you so very much and I always will. I will never stop loving you and I will never stop missing you and Dad.

Sadly, Paulie Simper is there now too so look for him.

My tears keep coming and I can’t seem to stop them. It is so hard here at home without you. I miss my best friend, my comedic partner, my Mom.
I reassured you I would be ok so I will honor that soon as i can.
I know how much you missed Dad and your parents and i know you are with them and that brings some comfort.

I will love and honor you for the rest of my days here. I have so many memories of my forever beautiful Mom. I will speak to you and of you often. You truly were a blessing from God. Thank you for being my Mom.

Your loving baby daughter

Mom, you was such a perfect mom, wife, sister grandmother, and friend. Mom was always a serious mom until us kids grew up. Then this very silly fun loving side came out of you that left me Deborah and Belinda scratching our heads wondering who this new mom was. You was simply perfect. I'm blessed to have called you my mom. If everyone in this world was like you this world would be a fun loving peaceful world. I still struggle with you being gone but I will get better knowing your walking with God dad and your sister and parents. Your at peace now and your memories gives us children something to share and talk about forever until we all join you and dad. You live in my heart and I will carry that with me forever. Love you always, your loving son jeff..

Dearest Mom,
Now that you’ve been laid to rest I know you’re at peace and out of pain. You’re back with Dad, Grandma and Grandpa and Aunt Gloria. I’m still trying to process the fact that you are gone. I’m already missing you so much but know that I will see you again one day. You were the best. I love you so very much. ❤️

For Rose Manning
Jay has come to claim me
my hands within his hands.
He gently guided me
to where I have to go.
My purpose here has been filled.
I know I did my best.
I never was judgmental for
I lived with compassion
every single day.

Happiness for me was dancing
to the rhythm of the time.
I sang with heart the songs
of my people to all who were near by.
Please remember me
with that twinkle in my eyes
and my quirky elfish way.
My stature small but mighty
Strong in every way.

Now pour me another glass
of that Manischewis Wine!

Mom loved seeing people in cowboy hats and every time she saw my mowing hat, she put it on her head. I soooo miss your silliness Mom. The days are very hard right now but stop worrying. Because of you, we have your will and desire and we will eventually be ok.
I love you forever.

Rose, I've only known you a short while, not long enough . I wish I had more time with you but the time I had was so nice. You was so sweet and funny, and your kids are very kind which shows that you was a great mom. I'm proud to become part of your family and it will be my honor to become your daughter in law. Your smile was infectious and your joy radiated from you. You will be missed this world will not be the same without you. I love you rose heaven has gained what the world has lost. You will be missed. Love Holly

Rose was the sweetest person you wanted to know. Rose, Bonnie Shanks and I would sit on Bonnie's deck every morning and visit for a couple of hours. I know she's at peace now, singing and dancing!! My deepest sympathy to all her family.
