On The Anniversary Of The Day You Went Away
3 years ago "June 1933 - April 2012"

Today is the day I lost you. Life has been full of ups and downs. There's not a day that goes by when I don't think of you or speak your name. I will think of you everyday for the rest of my life. Even though you're no longer here and it makes me sad, I can still feel your guidance and know that you are near. You would be so proud of the kids, they are all doing very well. Dad misses you dearly and knows right down to the last min & sec of everyday how long you have been gone. He's doing well .... we make sure of it. Hope you are enjoying heaven with your mom, dad, sister, brothers, grandchildren, brother in laws aunts, uncles and all your friends. Hope you are extremely happy, pain free, peaceful and watching over us. We love you so much!!!

She was my life, my eveything, my best friend. She was the most amazing grandmother to me!! She's beautiful and was the most caring individual I knew. She lit up a room with her presence and she was the funniest person I knew. I loved our hour long conversations and sitting on the porch. Our time together I will cherish forever. I am so grateful that you were part of my life. You spoiled me like crazy and you were the ONE that was always there for me. My heart aches so much that you are gone. I love you so my Grandma! You will always be my gemini twin and my other half. Words can not decribe how much I miss you. I will be thinking of you everyday.You had a heart of gold. YOU will never be forgotten. xoxo ..I love you so much..YOUR THE BEST GRANDMA IN THE WORLD!! ..your only grandgirl Stephanie

My heart never felt so much pain
The sky came together and dropped lots of rain
I thought my life was coming to an end
All I know is I will never give in
You were the reason I became who I am
You hold my life in the palm of your hand
You showed me right from wrong
But the day you died everything went wrong
You knew me oh so well
The day you died my heart fell
I will never forget you until I die
Maybe someday we will meet up in the sky
I know the lord took you cause it was time
But he should of let me say the right goodbye
I will be thinking of you everyday

To my Grandma ..I say I Love You ..my heart will always be with you everyday, and I know you're here with me ..xoxoxo 4-24-2012

Oh I believe there are angels among us
Sent down to us from somewhere up above
They come to you and me in our darkest hours
To show us how to live
To teach us how to give
To guide us with a light of love

When life dealt troubled times and had me down on my knees
There's always been someone there to come along and comfort me
A kind word from a stranger to lend a helping hand
A phone call from a friend just to say I understand
Ain't it kind of funny at the dark end of the road
Someone lights the way with just a single ray of hope

Oh I believe there are angels among us
Sent down to us from somewhere up above
They come to you and me in our darkest hours
To show us how to live
To teach us how to give
To guide us with a light of love

They wear so many faces
Show up in the strangest places
Grace us with thier mercy
In our time of need

Oh I believe there are angels among us
Sent down to us from somewhere up above
They come to you and me in our darkest hours
To show us how to live
To teach us how to give
To guide us with a light of love
