Mom I miss you dearly already! You were always there for all of us if we ever needed or wanted anything! You was always so loving and caring to everyone! There is a big void in my heart now but someday we will be together again! Fly high like the ANGEL you are! You taught us love and respect. I hope I will be half the parent to my daughter that you was to me! I will always love you and miss you! Not a day will go by that I will not think of you! Love always your son,Scott

I will miss my grandma dearly. She was always there to do anything she could for her family. I will miss all the great trips on Friday nights going out to eat and taking her with us places. It will not seem the same at any holiday without her, she was always wanting to see everyone. She always wanted to go anywhere she could to just get out for a little while. I will miss her, but I know she’s in a lot better place, she is no longer suffering, and she’s reuniting with her family she hasn’t saw in a very long time. L❤️VE YOU!
