  • The day you moved away was a sight I wish I didnt see. Your back facing 48th made us all realize life would never be the same. You and papal were the glue that held it all together. We were a family as one, no one ever above another. I was a young lady then and to be honest i didnt have a care in the world. I caused alot of trouble and had no filter how i choose my words ,mean and hatefull was how i was looked upon with a couple choice words thats best to be left behind. I didnt like your rules or be told what was best but now I’m a mother of 3 and say the same things you once said to me. I see now your rules were life lessons and yours were the best that were ever tought to me. I know its been to long and I should have made a better effort, and my kids and you will never meet. the only thing i can do now is pray that your in a better place. You and Papal side by side or as I remember ,You chasing him around with that back scracher in you hand, with big smiles on your faces.I know your together now he came before you went, maybe he gave you directions to heaven and described the pearly gates.the grandparents I remember he probably yelled at you not to be late. With all tears that fill my eyes everytime i hear your name , I also feel warmth because your at peace and in a better place. ….. I Love You Mamal !!

  • Love you aunt Sarah always will be missed. I know that you use to mess with us as kids and as I got older I realized that it was all in fun to pick with us. I remember when we all walked down to the pool at Holly lake and you changed your mind at the last minute and no pool. Those were fine times. And now you are at peace and with gingie and the rest of the love ones who are waiting to take care of us all. So I give my best to you and the family. And you were one of the big pieces’in my childhood. Love and hugs where you shall rest.
