Mom,
You were such a good mom. You always had an ear to listen and gave good advice. I remember when Jared had colic, you would rock him and sing to him. I enjoyed going eat lunch and visiting with you and day on Sundays. I miss being able to pick up the phone and hear your voice. I may not be able to see you any more, but you will always be in my heart. You and dad watch over us.
Love your daughter Jill

Mom,
Still hard to believe you are gone! I think of you everyday and catch myself wanting to call you. You were always there for me anytime i needed you. I can still see you listening to Christmas music dancing around the house. We brought your record player home and at night we listen to all of your records. It really brings back some great meme! Like they say you never know what you have until it’s gone and they are right. You will always be in my heart, you are my guardian angel. Look over us here on earth and keep us safe.
I love you with all my heart.
Your son Eric

Mom, Where to begin. You were there. You were there when i was sick and couldn't walk. You were there when i wanted to join Cub Scouts. You were there when i wanted to be an Alter Boy. You were there when I wanted to play Baseball. You were there when i needed somebody to talk too. You were always there. May God look upon you with great favor as you looked after me growing up. And may God bless you and keep you for all the great things you have done. Love your son, Steven.

Momma

I don’t even know where to begin. I feel very lucky that God chose me to be your daughter. You were so much more than a mom, you were my best friend. I feel like a piece of me is missing. I will always cherish our close relationship and our long talks. You always knew exactly what I needed to hear. I miss our Saturday night trips to Baskin Robbins and enjoying broadway shows and symphony concerts together. I am heartbroken that you are gone but have many happy memories of you. You were strong all the way till the end. I just know you are dancing around heaven with a big smile on your face. Please watch over me, Mom.

I love and miss you!!
Donna aka Sugarplum
