You were the most unselfish mother a son could ask for. I remember countless times you went without so we wouldn't have to. I thank you for keeping after me, to stay in line and never give up. You did an awesome job bringing up four men mostly by yourself, without complaining. You will always be my words with friends buddy, and what I wouldn't do to have just one more game. As sad as I feel right now and the void in my heart, I can't help but envy you because you are an angel in heaven singing with dad and the other angels. One of my last memories will be of you lying in the hospital bed, reaching out, grabbing both of my hands and kissing them saying "I Love You". You will forever be missed and someday we'll meet up again. What we lost here on earth, (which is a lot) is no comparison to what heaven gained. My sorrow is based on a life lost, but in essence, your life has just begun. I Love You Mom !!!

Grams I will miss you soooo much!  As I’m sure so many will.  I remember so many good memories of you.  Saturday night game night and how you cooked for an army and even know so many people were at your house there was always enough food for everyone to have seconds or thirds.  Your food was the best.  I wish when I was younger I learned how to cook like you.  Just a pinch here and a dash there.  Sundays for football.  Thanksgiving where everyone would show up and all the wonderful food. Christmas and the Elvis songs you would play.  The country music playing on the radio in the kitchen and the coffee pot always on.  The games and picknics in the front yard.  No matter how bad we felt Gram’s you always made things better.  Halloween and how you made the dinning room into a haunted place.  and the amazing applesauce and cookies.   You were fun and always smiling and making us kids laugh.  Nobody can ever take your place in our hearts.  I love you and will forever miss you.

Mom you were a great mother! We will definitely miss you but we are so happy you're not suffering anymore. Sad day for us but an AWESOME day for you! Can't wait to see you again.

Love you Mike & Audrey
