Rick & Denise, I'm so sorry for the loss of your mom. What a sweet lady. And 100 years! Such a legacy! I was so fortunate to have been able to call her mom. Warm and funny memories come to mind....her bird bathing in the camper and especially her cigars! She also had such an infectious laugh. I'll always remember her fondly. My heartfelt sympathy, Ruth

Such a wonderful heart, and her daughter has one too. She always smiled and asked about my children regardless of the pain she was in. I hope this poem helps bring peace, and my heart breaks for the family. What a bright star we get to see watching down on us. Oh Father, can you hear me? I'm sending a prayer your way, I'm clutching hard to my faith, as mom taught me, As she draws closer to you each day. I talk to her in whispers, And I hope she hears me pray, I hope you send an angel To guide her towards your way. I continue to tell her I love her And thank her for all the sacrifices she has made And for the unconditional love, No matter what kind of behavior I displayed. Mom, can you hear me? I have so much more to say. I will continue on with your legacy. I hope I can be as strong as you one day. You taught me the importance of family. I have learned from the very best. Don't you worry yourself now, Mom, You keep yourself at rest. I'm sorry if I'm selfish. I'm not ready to let go of your hand. I'm trying to remember the message From "Footprints In The Sand." Dear Mom, can you please wake up? I have not heard your voice today. I promise I would sit and listen To everything you want to say. I know you are getting weary. You are ready to go home. I imagine you are dreaming of your Savior Sitting upon his throne. I hope you take my love with you, As tears fall on your cheek. Dear God, please carry me through this, I'm feeling very weak. Dear Mom, I'm very thankful For all the years we've had. I'm trying to remember you laughing So I will not stay so very sad. Through the rest of my life I will carry All your love with me. I promise I will be the best mom, grandmother and person That I can possibly be. God must think your time is almost done here. I feel you going away, I love you, Mom. No goodbyes. I will see you again one day.

Rick, Denise and family... The reality of death brings such pain, but also resurrects wonderful memories of the past. As you experience both of these in your mom's passing, know that God can heal the deepest of hurts. Praying for your comfort and strength in the coming days. Donnie and Sandy
