Knowing you’re home and reunited with Papa and Trinket brings me peace and comfort through this sadness. Your body may be gone but your love still lives on in everyone’s heart. I’ll never forget the moments spent with you and the memories made during those times. Also, thank you for all love and support you gave me throughout the years. I know you’ll be watching over me and all the others and continue to love and support us all. I’m going to miss you more than anything and I hope heaven has all the puzzles you can build and a great view to watch the freighters.
I love you, grandma

I am a strong, independent woman because of my strong, independent role model - my mom.
As the oldest of five children, all born within a ten year period, I definitely developed her patience and helped pave the way for the four to follow.
We had our share of "disagreements" in the early years but I always knew where I stood with her and that she would love me unconditionally no matter what.
I am proud of the way our relationship developed over the past 60+ years and I am so glad that she was a big part of my life all those years.
She taught me so many life lessons: love, respect, kindness, morals, strength and trust. She taught me to sew, knit, crochet, bake, cook, play piano and sing. I loved to sing with my mom, she made my voice sound better than it was and it made me feel special when she sang harmony with me.
She will be missed by my sons, Kristopher and Bryan, along with her two Florida great-granddaughters, Madison and Lucy.
She will be in our hearts and memories forever.
I love you mom. Rest in Peace.
