Please accept my heartfelt sympathy for the loss of your loved one. Sometimes we may say, Mrs. Cushman lived a good long life”, and she did. She lived her life to the fullest and accomplished much good. However, no matter how long one lives, it is NEVER long enough. Be assured of the keeping of this wonderful promise from God: “The righteous will possess the earth and live FOREVER on it.” “There IS going to be a resurrection of both the righteous and the unrighteous.” (Acts 25:15) Imagine awakening to a righteous new world where death has been eliminated. This is the way God intended it to be from the start. His original purpose will be fulfilled when His Kingdom “comes”. Please take heart in these beautiful promises.

There are no words or a single memory I can write about my grandma. She has been there for everything and she completes all of my memories in my life. It’s hard to bare the thought that she will not be there for the many memories to come. From the time I was a little girl to now as a woman she has been there for everything. She has never missed a birthday or special occasion. Her presence alone was the greatest gift she could ever give us. She was the sweetest and yet such a strong woman.
I’ll always remember her smile and kind heart. I’ll remember how much family meant to her and how important it was to her that we were all together. I’ll remember her stubbornness and determination. I’ll remember how she glowed while holding her great grandchildren. I’ll remember how she always asked me during our visits how my mom, dad, sister, brothers and great grandchildren were doing even if she herself wasn’t feeling well. I’ll remember her cooking and singing to us. I’ll remember how she laughed. I’ll remember how she looked telling us stories of her life. I’ll remember her smile while reminiscing. I’ll remember her always saying “mangia mangia.” I’ll remember the unconditional love she had in her eyes for us grandchildren. I’ll remember her strength in hard times. I’ll remember her hugs and kisses. I’ll remember all of our times we had together. I’ll remember the love she gave us all. I will remember you my grannie Annie.
My grandma was so selfless and has cared so much for others during her life. I have never heard a bad word spoken about her to this day. The love she has showed us all can’t even be imagined. She has given her life to her family. And in return she has touched everyone’s life in such a special way that she will never be forgotten.
Every time I told her I loved her and I’ll see you soon, she would say “if god wants.” You my sweet sweet grandma are now in gods hands and he will cherish you as we did. I know you’ll be watching over us. I love you. -Julia-

My Mom was a very caring and strong person.
I learned how to make her sauce by watching her, but I don't think that I could ever get it quite right.
My mom could also be determined and stubborn which is where I think I get my stubbornness.
What I got from my Mom, was, that you could do anything if you just set your mind to it.
Her home was most important and she always wanted to make sure things were organized and clean. And she loved her grandchildren and great grandchildren. All our conversations or visits would include what the kids were doing. We would also talk baseball and politics.
I have one gift from her that has been with me on my desk on every job I have had, and sits in front of me even now, it is a baseball that she had got autographed many years ago. this gift sits on my desk now, but will go with her when I say good-bye. Rest well Mom, for us, just knowing that you are in Heaven is blessing enough.
Your son Johnny
Mom, I want to thank-you for giving me one precious gift I will cherish always your son, John. I thank-you for the many breakfasts and dinners when I stayed over night when we were engaged. Your home was always neat clean and I knew I would be the same as we talked about cleaning and cooking on those days 42 years ago.I wish we had more memories to make. but I cherish the ones we had. When you came and stayed over in our first apartment and later at our home, the talks and shopping trips we made. Shoes and spices were on the list.
I remember the lilac frost lipstick I would bring you from working at the Revlon counter at Kaufmanns, after we talked about colors and what would look good. I know one thing as 40 years of being married to Johnny and 42 years of knowing you, there is one thing I know I do not have to wish for, You total complete happiness you now have in heaven. Be at peace, the yearning is over, the complete understanding of all is yours to own. Your in paradise! Give my Mom & Dad a kiss and a hug from me! Love, Chrissy
