Your mom was a beautiful lady with kind heart. I truly enjoyed knowing her. She taught me much about ceramics & I will always treasure the time that we spent together - her teaching & me learning. I still have some of the ceramics that I did as well as other family members. Know that she will be missed. God bless. Darlene

Rhonda and Christopher,

I’m so sorry for your loss. I know you feel as if you’ve lost your compass, your rock, a piece of your soul and you in fact have. I’m speaking from experience here because 9 months ago I suffered the same loss.

It’s going to be hard to move forward but you can and will. Draw strength from your memories of her. Memories of her strength. How hard she fought to overcome so many losses, hurts, and disappointments in her life. Be strong like her. Remember how much she loved her family, friends and her God. Love like her. She stayed strong in her faith to God. Stay strong in your faith like her. There is no better way to honor her.

Time will lessen the pain and hurt but it will never go away. Use it as a reminder of how blessed you were to have been a part of this Godly lady’s life. To have her blood flowing through you. Honor her in everything you do going forward - without her.

You are in my prayers and thoughts.
