Mom, this one's for you....
Gone is a mom loved by all,
Her soul is now at rest.
She'll sleep in peace, her work is done.
She'll know the joy of perfect rest
In heaven up above,
Where she may dwell contentedly
Protected by God's love.
Our hearts may grieve that she must lie
Beneath the sacred sod,
And yet we know she lives in peace
Within the house of God.
Love and Miss YOU MOM!

Love and miss you.

As the days go by it gets harder and harder to realize you've left us. I have caught myself getting ready to call you as I would do in the mornings on my way to work, and then realize I can't because you've gone to a bigger and better place. It's even harder to go home now and you're not there. When Ronnie & I left your house last Sunday, it was one of the hardest things to do as we had picked up daddy's recliner for Ronnie Jr. and I cried half the way back home. It was hard enough trying to see in the pouring down rain and crying on top of that. Thank God we had a safe trip back home through the tears and the rain. Just can't imagine what's ahead of us, having to go into what was our "ole home place" and cleaning it out.
I know the family with you in Heaven is eating some good ole home cooked meals.
I can just imagine the reunion you had welcoming you home.
I went to visit Aunt Doris & Aunt Catherine while I was down last weekend in the nursing home. They were both doing good.
Uncle Paul misses you just as we do, but he's managing well. I've promised to try to help him with his garden next year.
Shadow is still running around and eating like a hard of hearing/blind little pig.
Ronnie & I hope to go to Wanchese, in the next couple of weeks to put flowers out on Grandma & Granddaddy's grave as we normally do every summer, but didn't make it there during the summer months.
Ronnie Jr. started his testing for Va. State Police, it's a long process, but it's in his blood and he won't be happy till he gets his foot in the door.
Guess it won't be too long before Charlie will have you cooking deer meat & eating it.
Keep watch over us as you always have.
Love & miss you all dearly.

I am so grateful to my husband and my family that they agreed and understood the need for us to move to the area so that I could be closer to you. I do feel that the time with you was short, as we always do, but I know you're right where you want to be. You were definitely one of a kind, and I'll be forever grateful that I had the upbringing I had with the best parents ever. Please give Drew and Dad big kisses for me. Miss you lots and look forward to the day that we will be reunited in heaven.

It's hard to believe that a simple fall could lead to the events that took you away from us. Although I miss you dearly & it was hard to say good-bye, I know you are truly where you want to be...with "That Charlie Allcox", your two grandsons, God & all the rest of your loved ones. I would imagine you & Granddaddy are already bickering back & forth about something. :-)

I'd like to thank you for all the fond memories you left behind. Remember the time we were in Nags Head for vacation? Aunt Trish & the kids were able to join us. I believe it was 4th of July because they were shooting off fireworks. A firework came in the car & landed on Shawn. He started screaming & you responded by calling him a big baby. You thought he was just being an annoying kid. Well he reaches down & grabs the firework to show it to you & is like "big baby huh". I laughed then & everytime I think of this.

I can only imagine you're already running around heaven making sure everything is perfect for the day we all meet again & cooking some of the fabulous food we will all remember.

"Death leaves a heartache no one can heal, love leaves a memory no one can steal."

Love ya Grandma...until we meet again.

P.S. - Don't be so rough on Granddaddy. He's been preparing for 7 years to reunite with his beautiful wife. I'm sad, but happy ya'll are together again!

Gerry was one of the sweetest and kindest ladies I knew. I enjoyed my long conversations with her over the phone, and will miss talking to her. She loved talking about and doting on her three daughters. I know that she will be dearly missed by all, because she will be remembered for always staying busy to help others. My family and I extend our deepest sympathy.
