Grandma, you always brightened my day, I will miss your smiling face and warm hug. As difficult as it is to let you go I know you are in a far better place and made whole once again. You will be in my mind the remainder of my days and what a joy it will be to see you again when the time comes, save me a place. I love and miss you, Danny
Aunt Butch, you are a part of my first memories. You had so much influence in my life. So glad that you are free now from any boundaries. Love You
I’ll miss knowing my sweet Aunt Butch is in the same world with me, but live in the assurance that she is safe in the arms of the Lord she loved so dearly.
Grandma, I will forever remember your laugh, and that above all else, love can bring you back to me even if just for a moment. The way you cried when I hugged you that day with Dad, it remains in my heart so fresh, you had no memory of me until we embraced. Then my Grandma knew her Wachel Wee was there. I promise to share your love and laughter for an eternity.
We are sad for your loss. Cherish your memories. She will be missed but not forgotten. Ps. 116:15 <3
