    Mom, You were a great mother and I wish I had more time with you. I’ve always wanted to make you proud of me and I will continue to do so as you look down on me. You will always live in my heart and I know you will be with me everyday looking over John and I. I’m miss you already and look forward to the day that we will see each other again. I love you Mom.

    Aunt Elaine, you were always so kind to me and I will forever appreciate that! When I lived with you, it was not long after my mom died and when you found out I loved to read, you shared your books with me. Through the years, you have continued your kindness and love and I loved you so much! You and Uncle Don were good people and always kind. I miss you both. Hugs, love, and prayers to John, Natalie, Calvin, and Paul. If you need anything, please let me know.
