    Always my cheerleader, you filled my life with happiness. I learned from you strength, resilience, patience, and the importance of love. Thank you so much for being just as you were- beloved mom and grandmom.

    Loving you has always been easy, but letting you go is simply unimaginable. I will carry you in my heart always. This is not goodbye, but see you later.

    Rest happy. You’ve earned your wings. I’ll love you always,
    Lauren

    Your devotion and dedicated care for your mother was outstanding and was greatly appreciated
    by her.
    No one knows what it is like to lose a mother before their time. There is a hollow feeling in your
    heart. The memory of your mother will fill that hollow spot.

    God Bless Mom and Dad
