Music, when soft voices die

Music, when soft voices die,
Vibrates in the memory—
Odours, when sweet violets sicken,
Live within the sense they quicken.

Rose leaves, when the rose is dead,
Are heaped for the beloved's bed;
And so thy thoughts, when thou art gone,
Love itself shall slumber on.

Grandma, I will always remember our special vacations together, our Silver legacy weekend stays and room service and all of our trips to the movie theaters. I will cherish you wisdom and advice forever. Not a day goes by that I don't think of you. I'll Love you for eternity!

Mom,
It seems like an eternity since you passed but it has only been five weeks. There are not adequate words to express the depth of my love and gratitude for you.
You once said to me " I am so proud of you for putting yourself through nursing school. You did it on your own without encouragement or motivation from anyone!." My reply to you was "are you kidding me mom? Look in the mirror. You are the ultimate example of a strong,intelligent, resourceful , independent woman."Through your example, I was able to achieve something great. More than I thought I could. You were my greatest cheerleader. Encouraging me forward and telling not to give up during the darkest days.
You were so brave and dignified even in your final days. Even though your physical body was deteriorating, your spirit was evolving, preparing you for your journey home.
Thank you for allowing your children and husband to send you off with love and support. I will never forget your last breaths as I watch your spirit take flight.
You are one of kind.
In your words, I love you! I miss you!.
Until we are reunited in heaven, farewell, my beautiful, sweet mommy. XOXOXO.
