  • Good Bye to my Wonderful loving Mother! You were a absolute fabulous, caring and Beautiful Mother and did an incredible job raising five kids on your own! I will always cherish fond memories we had together! You will now and forever be in my heart!!! I Love You Mom!!💖

  • My dear mom I am going to miss you so much. I’m going to miss your smile and our walks I took you on. You were an amazing mom and lived for your five kids. We had happy time and sad times in these last 6 months. I am so blessed that I got to spend them with you. I had so many precious moments with you. The times we laughed together and the times we cried. You were my life mom. I am going to miss you so much. I’m going to always remember the day I set up your Christmas Tree. I wanted you to see it so I moved your bed around the whole room till I had it right. When you open your eyes it was priceless to see you look at all the family pictures and your Christmas tree and smile. I will always remember that smile. I thank you for all your love. You are forever in my heart. Love you mom❤

  • Mom you never gave up on when the world did and I could never thank you enough even though I told you so ever week. I am going to miss your smile and the comfort you gave me but most of all I’m just going to miss you I love you mom

    Jeannie, you have been a very special friend. We have laughed together and cried together, had lots of fun. Your children are such a testament to the kind of person you were and the example you set for them and all who knew you and your family. You were truly blessed. They are truly blessed. I am truly blessed to have you in my life. May our loving God take care of you until we meet again.
    I love you, Jeannie!

  • To my mom, my hero! You are the strongest person I have ever known. I am truly a better person because of you. I love you and miss you every day.

    I had the privilege of caring for Ms Norma over the last year. She was alway so sweet, and gracious. Her smile was very contagious. Even when she was struggling she never complained, alway smiled. I looked forward to seeing her each time I got to visit. I miss her and every time I drive past her place I picture her smile that she maintained till the very end. It was a TRUE honor to care for her.

  • O grandma there is not a day that goes by that I still don’t think of you and miss you so much the amount of love you had for your family is something I will cherish forever and I will teach my kids the same. I know your watching out over all of us and you remind me on a daily basis. Hope you’re back with grandpa enjoying the memories you made in this life and seeing what all your kids and grandkids are doing to make memories of their own. Love you always and forever! PS pull some strings up there and make my kiddo come so I can join the family in memory of you 😉

    What a great picture – that is how I remember her – especially when any of her children, grandchildren and great grandchildren were around. She always made us “in-laws” feel welcome as well. She and her smile will be missed!!
