Meme, I cannot begin to fathom the glory you now live in every single moment of your eternity! While I’ve never known a pain like I now do in your abscence, I’ve also never felt such overwhelming and reassuring peace either. Peace that can only come from knowing that you are so safely held in the arms of Jesus and that we WILL be together again one day. I am so grateful for the 34 years of your 89 that I got to share with you. To be loved so purely and unconditionally by you was such a blessing. I will cherish every memory and hold tight to the promise of forever that awaits those of us left behind in Christ Jesus. What a beautiful gift to look forward to. I know you’re watching over me and i hope i make you proud. I love you forever and I’ll miss you for always my precious Meemers until we are together again......
Ps-Save some cherry chunk ice cream for me 💜

I know where you are now. I know you are in the place that is far better than here. I’m going to carry this ache in my heart for you but, I also have all of my memories of you tucked safely in my mind and that gives me great comfort especially on those days when I’m missing you too much. You had such an amazing impact on so many. Your strength and rare nature is your legacy and your love will never leave us. I am going to miss when you would ask me from the time I could barely talk, “ Diedee can you cook?” Well, Grandfather started it but, you continued to ask me after he was gone. I love you and I will miss you greatly Grandma

Mimi was the best mother-in-law ever. She treated me like a son and was always so good to Sandi and I. I have great memories of our times together. I will miss her a lot, but will always remember how kind and loving she was!....Don Stanley
