Your Mom was sincere, beautiful, compassionate, loving and simply such a genuine human being. I will miss knowing her calm and smiling voice is just a phone call away... Your Mom was such a gift to us all. I believe she made everyone who knew her feel like a kindred spirit; I know that's how she made me feel and I will miss her. Our prayers are with you all, Liz, Eddie and Eli

Dear Mom,

How I miss being able to walk in the house and hear you say "Hi Susie" and see you smile even though I knew you were in pain.
I know in my heart that you are in a much better place and the suffering has stopped and I am grateful for that. It is the selfish part of me that wants you back. Life will never be the same for any of us. I am finding comfort that you are with Grandma & Uncle Bud and the many others that have been waiting to see your smiling face again. I know I can't wait to see you again Mom. Until that day you will remain in my heart. I miss you and I love you.
