My Mama to me was a role model for all mothers. I read something this morning that touched me and brought peace to my heart - Death takes the body, God takes the soul, our minds hold the memories, our hearts keep the love, our faith let’s us know we will meet again. I look forward to the day that I meet Mama again I the presence of our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ. Thank God for the sacrifices she made to make sure she carried us to church. In the earlier years we had to walk a distance to get there, but it didn’t stop her. She carried Teresa in her arms while Gary, Donna and I held to her dress tail. She could have never left a greater inheritance. One that we can pass down to generations to come. The pain is great, but the legacy she left us is greater.
I love you, Mama. You will always be in my heart and I’ll never let your memory go from my mind. You left a lifetime of memories and no one could ever take your place. You were a real Mama.
Love Your Oldest Daughter,
Belinda
P.S. I know what love is because of you, Mama.

A life which is not mine own, but another life in me : This is the message the Branch would speak, A message to thee and me . Oh, struggle not to "abide",

Nor labor to bring forth fruit, but let Jesus unite thee to himself, as the Vine's branch to the root. So simple so deep so strong, that union with Him will be. His life will forever replace thine own, and His love shall flow through thee;
For His spirit's fruit is love, and love shall thy life shall become, and forevermore on His heart of love Thy spirit shall have her home. Author : Andrew Murray

The fondest memory of my mother was the struggle she endured to take me to church. Also the great love she had for her family. I love you MOM. As Rowan
sang you the song "you are my sunshine"

Mama 💗
You are my first great love and my first great loss. My love for you knows no bounds. I think I must have loved you this deep while still in your womb. I know how much you loved me. My love for you runs deeper than I could have ever expressed and I think that is why my heart is utterly broken. I have always been your baby and it was reversed when you got sick and you then became my baby as I helped take care of you. Mama, I don’t know what I will do without your physical presence in my life. You truly are my best friend . I will miss your hugs and kisses and our heart to heart talks. I will miss your touch and laughter. I know your Spirit, the real you is with Jesus. I know you see me and hear me. I will talk to you everyday. My heart will never stop aching and wanting you. My life will never be the same without you. You are so beautiful, sweet and caring. I know Jesus is comforting you now. We are one spirit. You live in my heart. I loved doing life with you Mama. I will celebrate you everyday. You are my world!!
You Are Always My Mama, Forever my Friend. God has you in his arms, I have you in my heart. I will Love you throughout eternity! Can’t wait to see you again in heaven.

Nanny,
Life won’t be the same without you here. You are such a big part of who I am today. The time that we spent together is unmeasurable. I felt so comfortable and loved with you. You always made it clear how much you loved me. You never hesitated to show your love with hugs and kisses and words. You were there for every moment of my life and I will cherish that forever. You were so full of life. I loved all the laughter that we shared together. Those are the times I will remember the most. You let me get away with anything and didn’t tell my mom and dad. You were so fun and crazy. I often mocked you and made fun of you and oh how we laughed about it. You are the reason I am so free to be crazy and nutty with my girls. I am oh so grateful of the years you had with Rowan and Isla. The bond you shared with them may have been greater than our bond. You loved them with your whole heart and they did you too! You have left an impression on them that they never will forget. I think God for that time we had with you in the end. We sang to you and shared how much we love and will miss you. It will be hard to go on without you. We will carry you in our hearts forever. Love your life here on earth. Hay B

Nanny will be missed but so happy she's home where she belongs. Praying for comfort for entire family. Only thing left is for the rest of us to finish our "course" and join her. Praying that lost loved ones will accept Jesus so everyone will see her again. Love you all!
