  • Mom, you are the most beautiful person I’ve ever known. I hope your dancing in heaven with the angles. I still can’t believe your gone. I keep waiting for you to walk in my kitchen door for dinner. I love you so much and always will, now and forever in my heart. I will see you later OK, just like I told you everyday. I love you Mom.

  • I didn’t know today would be our last
    Or that I’d have to say goodbye to you so fast
    I’m so numb, I can’t feel anymore
    Prayin’ you’d just walk back through that door
    And tell me that I was only dreamin’
    You’re not really gone as long as I believe
    There will be another angel
    Around the throne tonight
    Your love lives on inside of me,
    And I will hold on tight
    It’s not my place to question,
    Only God knows why
    I’m just jealous of the angels
    Around the throne tonight
    You always made my troubles feel so small
    And you were always there to catch me when I’d fall
    In a world where heroes come and go
    Well God just took the only one I know
    So I’ll hold you as close as I can
    Longing for the day, when I see your face again
    But until then
    God must need another angel
    Around the throne tonight
    Your love lives on inside of me
    And I will hold on tight
    It’s not my place to question
    Only God knows why
    I’m just jealous of the angels
    Around the throne tonight

    Grandma, I spent the last years of your life taking care of you, alongside my mother, and I rarely saw your smile fade. It was one of those emotions you had that made my day, morning or night. I can still hear the way you spoke to me and how humorous you were, I know you’re waiting to talk to us again up there. However, what I cherished most was the love you held and the love you showed to those you praised. You never faded in life and after all is said and done, you stay in our hearts and memories, until we see you again, with your smile and the love you hold. Life without you will be hard, but the world will bring us together again. I love you grandma…

    Grandma, thank you for everything you’ve done for us, our family, my brothers and sisters. I’m so thankful and happy i got to see you the past couple years and ive never seen you so at peace with yourself and just full of smiles and laughs. You are so precious to me, everything about you. The fact that you are no longer here will always cause us pain. But you’re forever in my heart until we meet again. The momemt that you left me , my heart split in two. One side filled with memories, the other side died with you. I often lay awake at night when the world is fast asleep, and take a walk down memory lane with tears upon my cheek. Remembering you is easy, i do it everyday; but missing you is a heartache that never goes away. I love you Grandma fly high with the angels ❤️🙏🏻 forever and always missing and loving you grandma! 💞Nico, Sky and Kirsti

      Kiki, thank you for the beautiful message to your Grandma. She loved all of you so much and she is watching down from heaven and protecting every one of you. I’m so happy you got to spend time with her when she needed it most, that makes me so proud to be your Mom. Cherish those memories and hold them tight…like the night she asked if we were spending the night, that was so cute! I hope I can help you mend your broken heart, I’m certainly going to try. I bet she’s dancing with the angles in heaven.
