A Psalm of David.

Psalm 23: The Lord is my shepherd; I shall not want.
He makes me lie down in green pastures.
He leads me beside still waters.
He restores my soul.
He leads me in paths of righteousness
for his name's sake.
Even though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death,
I will fear no evil,
for you are with me;
your rod and your staff,
they comfort me.
You prepare a table before me
in the presence of my enemies;
you anoint my head with oil;
my cup overflows.
Surely goodness and mercy shall follow me
all the days of my life,
and I shall dwell in the house of the Lord forever!

Dearest mom, you were the best mom any child could hope for. Our childhood years were so much fun mostly because of you. You were a great confidant as we kids grew into adults. Thank you for teaching us to know right from wrong and to know God. The word "stranger" was not in your vocabulary as you made everyone feel you kindness and friendly ways. I miss your gorgeous smile, dancing eyes and the touch of your hand. You are so beautiful in life and in spirit. I'll always remember you and think of you often. You are my dearest friend and I love you mom. Thank you for leaving your wonderful footprints through your exemplary life.
Put in a good word for us all with Jesus and I'll be seeing you soon enough.
Your Daughter,
Janice XO...

Dear Gigi
I love you so much....and I'm going to miss you a lot also! My mom told me the story of when I was born and how you were so excited that you made a room for me and bought me at least a billion pink out fits. I also remember you always wanting me to spend the night, I wish I could have spent the night over more! We were all so blessed to of had you in our lives. I hope I will grow up to be such a kind beautiful and loving woman like you were! I'm sure your having a blast in heaven with paw paw, Bridget and Your brother! I can't wait to see you again!
Love Harley

Happy Birthday! If you were here, I know we would be playing the card game "Aces Wild". Everytime we play it, we will remember the fun times we had. Your presence will always be felt and we will keep alive all the precious memories that we have made. We miss you! But, it is time for you to enjoy all the luxuries of heaven. We love you so much!

I love you so much! You always showed each one of us unconditional love. You always made me feel so special and you made sure to let me know you were always so proud of me. You always had a smile on your face and always made a room sparkle. I am so blessed to have you as my Maw Maw. I am also blessed that my girls were able to meet and know their great grandmother- Gigi. Carrington talks about daily since she saw you last. She tells me, "Gigi went night night in heaven, and I love her to the moon!" Being 2 1/2 yrs old she amazes me and I am so thankful she had a chance to feel your love. I know you are embraced in heaven with Paw Paw and Bridget. I love you and will forever miss you and can't wait to hug, kiss, and see your smiling face again.

Happy 88th Birthday, Maw-Maw! I'll miss you more than words can express! You were truly an amazing women, grandmother, great-grandmother, and friend! You were ALWAYS there for each and everyone of us! It's hard to imagine a world without you in it, but I know you are now at peace with Paw-Paw and Bridget! Thank you for the love you brought to our family! We grew up so close, and your home was a second home to all of us! i can only hope and dream to try and be like you with my grandkids one day! You are an inspiration to us all! You will forever be missed, but never forgotten!

With all my love,

Dear Maw Maw - Everyone always tells me the stories of how special a time it was when the first grandson was born. How much joy was brought to the family to have a little baby crawling around the house.

The truth is, we (collectively the grand kids) were the blessed ones. We were able to experience the unwavering love and warmth of you and Paw Paw through the years. You believed in us no matter the circumstances in which we found ourselves. You gave us confidence and assurance when needed to prop us up, laughter to ease a mood, and a sweet hug and kiss when sorrow filled our lives. You had the touch of an angel.

You and Paw Paw were a driving force in shaping us through faith, family and work. Perfect role models to follow.

Although the memory of my experiences at the Yum Yum place have faded since those early days, I was reminded every trip home to your and Paw Paw's house of how much love you had for me. It grew, it didn't waver, it never faded. It always made me feel like a kid when I saw you guys.

We were the blessed ones Maw Maw and we'll always remember you in our hearts.

Thank you for being you.

With all my love on your 88th birthday and for eternity, here is my poem that is you ...

We Call Her… Boots!

They gave her Boots
and Buddy to her twin brother,
as nicknames upon their birth
that became firmly part of their heritage roots,
thanks to their caring father and mother,
who did so out of love and a comic strip's mirth.

And while life became mean
at the age of nineteen
upon the news of the tragic loss of Buddy
in the hedgerows of Normandy turned bloody…
Boots' tears did eventually dry,
knowing that her twin was eternally secured
with God well beyond the earth's blue sky,
which is a comforting thought that has endured.

Boots' faith in our Creator
can easily be seen now, many years later,
in the way she looks and smiles at you,
even when she might be a little loud and upset too…
as her love is unwavering, constant and true.

Another gift of her loving style
is her natural, funny side
of just being Boots,
which easily can make you smile
and even cause anger to subside
that involves difficult disputes.

Boots is also called Mom, Maw Maw, and GiGi
by the gift of birth to and from her children and theirs,
who love her very much.
We thank God for being part of her family tree,
always keep her in our prayers,
and hope for many more years of her sweet touch!

Happy 88th Grandma. I can only imagine the party they are throwing for you on the other side, and as always, i know you are radiating with beauty and shining so bright. You were the best of the best, in a league all of your own! i cannot thank God enough for the abundance of blessings you brought to my life. You were more than just a Grandma, you were my dear friend. You gave love so freely, so unconditionally, in a way like no other. You gave all of yourself and brought so much joy and laughter to our lives. Thank you for all of your tenderness, your love, the many memories that I will cherish for a lifetime, and the incredible legacy you have left behind. Your unwavering faith and dedication to God, your family, and your friends was reflected in the way you lived your life each and everyday. Your zest for life was authentic, fun, and refreshing. You always had a smile on your face and the charm of a young woman. I will miss the good times and all that we shared with each other, but I am grateful for the time and to have been a part of the journey. I keep you in my heart and celebrate you always Grandma. You will always be the Queen of Hearts and the best grandma and friend anyone could have. It was an honor and a privilege Grandma!! I am so proud of you and am happy and at peace knowing that God has called his precious angel home!

Mom, I love you so much. Thank you for being the greatest mom a son could ever have and being such a special grandmother to Ryan, Sean and Kyle. I will miss you but will always keep you close to my heart.

Sometimes words are hard to sum up all the years of friendship as Boots was a very special part of my life. Family meant everything to her and her faith and dedication to service through faith was an inspiration to all those that knew her. I will also hold in my heart those times we took our trips all across Texas as well as national events and WUCWO. My prayers are with all of you and thank you for sharing this beautiful Lady will all of her friends.

Dear Bernard, David, Dale, Michael, Janice and Bancroft Family Members,
My prayers and thoughts are with you all during this time. Your Mom will always have a Special Place in my heart because she was so kind, happy and genuine! She was always happy to see us and made us feel so welcome and interested in how we were doing. She cared about us all and let us know. She encouraged us to have parties and get togethers as teenagers and even as we became adults to cherish the friendships that we had. I don't think I ever saw her without a smile on her face. I will surely miss her as others but when I think about your Wonderful Mother I have so many Happy Memories of her and the Great times at your home because of her. I will definitely remember her with a smile on my face and in my heart. Love You All,

I will always remember our trips to Galveston with my mother, Marilyn, and Annie Mae and how much fun you were to be with, and how your makeup and your nails were always so perfect. You will be truly missed.
