Condolence & Memory Journal

Dear Mom, I am going to miss you so much, but you already know it. I already miss hearing your humming. I have never gone longer than a week without seeing or talking to you. You have been my best friend since the day I was born. You have also been to more showers, weddings, and funerals with me than anyone else. You always told me what you thought, even if I didn't want to hear it. If I wasn't at church, you were on my doorstep wanting to know why. I will continue on, but it won't be easy. I thank God every night for giving me the best parents in the world. I wouldn't trade you for all the money in the world, you are worth so much more. Someday I will see you again. Love you!

Mary Kathryn was a dear, sweet, soul. It was inspiring to be with her and Milton because of their sweet natures. My sympathy to you, Sue and to your husband and other family at this difficult time.
