    I’m sorry momma, I needed a little time to be able to get myself together to write this. All my life, you were my protector, the one who always had my back no matter what. You worked so hard for us, so unselfish, so dedicated to family. Words will never be sufficient enough to describe how much I love you, how much I miss you, and how grateful and honored I am to be your daughter. I am what I am today because of you. You were the best mother and friend in the world. There will not be a day that goes by that I will not think of your beautiful face, your smile, and especially your sarcastic chuckle that we all grew to love. You will always be with me in my heart. I love you momma. Love, your Twup

    It is with great sorrow that I am sending my condolences on your recent loss. I am one of Jehovah’s Witnesses and would like to share a scripture that has benefited me and many people in time of grief. God reassures us of something wonderful in the Bible at Acts 24:15. It says, “There is going to be a resurrection.” Along with God’s promise to us at Revelation 21:3, 4 of sorrow, death, and pain being done away with permanently.

    It is my hope that this bit of information is of comfort to you. Please be sure to find further information regarding the resurrection at: JW.ORG

    May God be with you.

    My mother took incredible pride in her family, keeping a lovely home tidy, and soaking up conversation with her children and grandchildren. Most of all, she was completely devoted to her husband of nearly 52 years, my father, Steve. Her time in the Navy hallmarked one of the most special moments in her launching into adulthood. Mom was breathtakingly beautiful, sassy, tender, and always up for a good chick flick with inescapable sobbing in empathy to the storyline. She was my buddy and doting mother. Her disease in the last 12 years of her life prevented her from many joys – but she kept fighting to the end to live. I cannot imagine my heart ever mending from this grief, but I do want her legacy to continue. I will always believe that you are (as Rob puts it) the breeze in the trees. I love you and miss you more than words can convey.

    Dear Tracey and family, I extend my sincerest prayers on the passing of your mom. She was a kind lady and a loving mom from my high school memories. Find comfort knowing she is at peace and she is watching over her family.

    It’s been a year today since you left, honey. I will never get used to this and it will never be ok again. I see you in a million things everyday and I want to share them with you. We were always complete together and now I feel so completely alone. I long for your wit and wisdom, your joy for life, the pure beauty that you brought to everything, every day. You are the most beautiful person I’ve ever met, and I will hold our love within me as long as I live. You are the sparkle of Christmas and the warmth of the summer evening. You are the meaning of my life and eternally my forever girl. Until we’re together again – I love you.
