Condolence & Memory Journal

It has been a little over a month now and I just keep wishing I could get a couple more minutes to ask for your advice, to give you a hug, so my kids could tell there grandma about everything they know. They have so many questions for you. They all are so good in school and so smart. It's kinda crazy how certain things get passed down, my normal body temp and all of theirs is 97.6, runs low like yours. . I miss you mom, I know your not fighting anymore and at peace. Until we meet again, love you.! R.i.p. momma.

We will see you again real soon momma Kathy. So many of my childhood memories include you and your family, almost all of them actually...... You gave me the most precious gift ever, my bestest friend.
Always treated me like your own and loved unconditionally......... You're so much more too me than words could ever say...... But i know you're in a much better place now.... Still, part of my heart is destroyed.
