They say that angels (their spirits)are around us all the time.
I believe we were blessed with Grandma as our angel for her whole life. There are so many things I wish to thank her for.
She was always kind and thoughtful and full of love. She never missed a birthday or Christmas or a letter. I have so many letters from her with the most loving words to read again and again but it won't be the same.
When our family came together for gatherings it was soooo evident the love she created. A family of heart, of loving, of giving, of having fun with music, song, laughter, and joy.
In her last letter she said she was so very proud of me... and I can't tell you how proud I am of her. She blessed us with such a wonderful family whom followed in her footsteps, we all are loving, giving, and have heart.
I had the opportunity in 2010 to share a beautiful summer with Grandma. She had come out to stay at the acreage for part of the summer. My greatest reward was watching her face lighting up with joy when watching her great-great grand-son. How lucky are we to have a 5 generation picture. I have a lifetime of moments like these. I am so blessed to hold so many memories, of watching and sharing my life with such a beautiful lady.
I was not able to come to say a final good-bye... but I did see the hundreds of spoons she collected and was amazed at all the places she had been.
I never want to stop learning things about you Grandma and I know, as you were proof that angels walk among us, that you will always be a guardian angel to us all...
I love you Grandma...
I miss you dearly.

Grandma lived a wonderful life. She was loved by many and returned that love ten fold. She found true love and lived her life with dignity, respect and sincerity. She was rich with all the things that matter most in life and that inspires me every day.
Grandma, you were a special gift to each and every one of us. Thank you for the love I always felt, the memories I will cherish and the inspiration of your life.

We were sad to hear of the passing of Aunty Flo. To all of her beloved family spread far and wide, know that you are on our hearts and in our prayers at this time. Aunty Flo was a very special lady and loved by everyone who knew her. I will always remember how she welcomed us when we visited and we shared life's memories together over a cup of tea. Your mom will surely be missed. Our blessings and prayers surround you with peace. Love to all of you from nephew Kevin (and Kemala and KJ)

A very special lady with the heart of gold has moved on to another life and a story untold. She left us all with a very rare gift, to large to handle to heavy to lift. She left us her wisdom and so much love but it was her time a calling from above. She walked this world touching everyone in their own special way with loving memories and for her I pray. I pray that she happy and finds the man that awaits for her, she deserves a his heart a heart so pure. Ladies like her come around once in a blue moon, grandpa you're lucking you will see her soon.We will miss you dearly in our own little ways, you were a lady of loyalty to the end of her days.
One thing I wish for you grandma is not to rest in peace but enjoy your next life and make more loving memories like you did on this earth.
