Mom...I miss you so much. I’ll miss our games of rummy, trips to the local garden shop, special steak diners, your great cooking, laughter, your stories, unique green thumb, your company, your advise and soooo much more. Holidays will never be the same. You’re influence can be seen in everyone you’ve touched. You made my childhood magical and you were always there for me throughout my life, unconditionally, no matter what. I wish we had more time together. I can’t imagine a better mom. I love you.

You were a wonderful mother in law to me. We never had any issues. We had lots of laughs. We had a mutual love for your precious son Andy! I thanked you for raising such a great son and I promised you I would take great care of him and I will! I will miss our talks over our margaritas! Say hello to my sweet Sarah for me, and Jesus too❤️See you in Heaven sweet mom. Love you, Kammi

Mommy,

I feel your warm presence urging me forward to pursue my dreams and live life to the fullest. Yet, I still miss you so much. I’m grateful for your love and companionship throughout the years. You gave me your love of holidays and the joy of giving. I think about you everyday as I did when you were here on earth. It was an honor to care for you. You cared so much about your children and wanted the best for them.

Till we meet again in heaven,

Everlasting Love

Mom, thank you for being a huge part of my life, you were always loving, welcoming, thoughtful, kind and giving. The memories of you smiling, telling it like it is, and just being you will always be cherished not only by myself but by everyone who knew you. You made the world a much better place.

I will always remember the last words you said to me, "Suren, I love you, thank you for everything". I love you too and will never forget you made me a better person.

My sincere Condolences to Bridgett and Maya, my sister and brothers.

In the year 2007, I took a trip with my sister Kammi, her husband Andy and his mom Barbara, up to North Carolina, then we traveled to Gatlinburg Tennessee and I just recall totally enjoying Barbara‘s company! She made me laugh, she kept me company and she was just a joy to be with on that trip, a very sweet lady! ♥️
