Condolences & Memories (3 entries)

  • Hi grandma, I miss you so much everytime I drive the house that once was yours. Still hard to see it taken over by someone else. I grew up there and it was home. I drive by and wish I could stop in like I always did and sit at the kitchen table and talk about everything and anything. Your great grand babies miss you dearly as well. Your great grandson is 7 yrs old today. He says often that he's sad that hos grandma passed away. I know your here with us and watching over us. As much as it's not enough. Everything has changed since you left. You sure get to see someone's true colors when a loved one passes away. I know alot went down and probably not how you wanted to see or planned. But I'm glad your no longer living in pain and you are now with people you missed so much when they left. I love you and miss you. I will be visiting your resting place again and bringing fresh flowers and talking to you again. I love and miss you. Sending hugs and kisses 💋 Love, Amanda your granddaughter - Posted by: Amanda (Granddaughter) on: May 26, 2022

  • Where do I start, these past few months have really been the hardest. I graduated exactly a year and a day after you went to a better place, that same day I graduated I went to go see where you rest and I stood there and said great grandma I did it graduated I know you aren’t here in person but I know you're still with me and always will be. There’s times where I’m okay but then there’s times where things remind me of you and bring back happy memories they make my heart ache because I miss making happy memories but they also make me happy because I got to make those happy memories with you, I feel like you were the last one in moms side of the family that I was actually close too I wish covid didn’t happen I would have been able to see you way more before that day I had to say goodbye until the next time I see you.. I just wanted to say you are always gonna be the best great grandma I could have ever asked for I will cherish all these happy memories with you forever and always I love and miss you so so much. - Posted by: Falicity (Great granddaughter ) on: Aug 11, 2021

  • It was a surprise and sudden the loss of my grandmother. Seen her not long before and she was looking and doing fine. We talked more then anything on the phone cause of the Covid-19. Went to visit her and had a outside her home visit. I wish there was more time. Her great-grandchildren made her very happy when they visited her. Its been very hard for us all with her passing. She was a very strong, stubborn, loving and caring woman. She cared for and raised her own kids and helped raise others as well with me being one of them from the age of 10 yrs old she took custody of me and helped my dad raise me. She was happy to have company from her grandchildren and great grandchildren. The smiles and how happy it made here will always be a memory of mine. Yes she struggled with health/mental health issues but never really let it show. I learned tons from here and I pass it on to my kids. I love you grandma, you were a mother to me and I will miss you and see you when my time comes. - Posted by: Amanda Savard (Granddaughter) on: Jul 04, 2020
