    So sorry to hear of your loss. I know there is an empty hole, but at least your grandmother is not hurting any more. My thoughts and prayers are with you.

  3. Mama,
    I’m glad I got the chance to have met you before you joined the rest of the angels. I’m glad you got a chance to meet my son, Del too. I still remember the day you hugged me and told me to protect your granddaughter and treat her right, that’s a promise I will forever keep. I only wish I had a chance to say goodbye and that you could have got to seen our princess. Until we meet again, take care up there and I love you.

  4. Mom,
    I love you and miss you very much. I’m glad you’re no longer suffering and in pain. This is a hard thing to deal with, but it’ll get easier in time. You are now in heaven to watch over and protect us, and get to be with your daughter and other family again. Just know that dad is taken care of and will be fine. We all love you and miss you ❤👼

  5. Mom,

    It’s been a long time since I’ve had the pleasure of knowing you. We’ve had our ups and downs, but you’ve still always been my mother since mine passed away. You’re no longer suffering and can be reunited with your family now. See you on the other side, save a place for me. Say hi to my parents for me and tell them I love them.

  9. “Mom” Louise was such a dear and sweet loving woman. I will truly miss her! I can see her and my mom sitting at the dining room table enjoying the grandchildren and greatgrand children they both had in common. We are all so very sorry for your lost. She is no longer in pain. If any of you need anything please let us know.
