For my Nana, the one that taught me kindness, to keep faith in the father in my heart, and most of all the one who taught me to always spread sunshine to others.

Although I cannot see you, I feel your presence is always near. I will hold you close in memory, until my very last year. So dance with the angels, and let your golden heart rest, and even thought our hearts are broken, we know that our father took the best. Dance beyond those golden gates, and get ready for the rest of us to come. I'll see you when I'm sleeping, and i’ll hope and pray for you to come. So rest now, my guardian angel, i'll never forget how much you have done, so until my hands meet yours again...Sleep now and forever in the ever rising and setting sun.
All my love, Sophie Zoë

For Mama,
In life we never know what our path will bring, but with the FATHER’s Blessings HE will always ease our pain.
There will be many loved ones that will come and go , but just remember how they touched you and the memories you have stowed.
At times we do not understand the way life comes about but HE is always with us and for this you cannot doubt,.
HE knows what we can handle , Never more than we can bear , HE guides and protects us to show that he always cares.
So know that GOD is with you at all times and place, and One day you’ll stand before him and sing Amazing Grave.
so when you think about your loved ones who have gone and and you think your alone,
Just remember They are watching over you and we will see them again in a place We call Home.

my mother always told me she was a Child of the KING and her last words were hallelujah hallelujah, what better confirmation to maintain your faith so that one day you too can walk THRU those pearly gates. I love you mom I’ll miss you but I’ll see you soon , Oh Happy Day.
#4, your Daughter, Rhonda Gail

Rhonda, my deepest condolences to you and your family. You were a loving and attentive daughter and I know she appreciated all you did for her. A testament to the mother she must have been. As my heart hurts for you, it rejoices that she is now in the arms of our Lord and Savior in pain no more. May God comfort you and your family in the days, weeks and months to come. Love, Alice Clifton
