I lite this candle for you so that you know how bright you have always been in my life. Now I will take the things that you have taught me and try to make you as proud of me as I was of you. I will think of you always and love you even more. Give Dad a hug and I will see you both again some day.
Love you always.

At the service it was mentioned that Gma would have a mansion in Heaven. I wonder if her mansion will be a fishing cabin or an old farm house? There will be enough rooms for every family member. Of course the babies will be closest to her. There will be a dinner table big enough for everyone. Will she fix fried chicken or fish? Regardless it will be something fried, she will make noodles, but will she add the yellow dye that Gma Boring used to do? She won't cook everything, but she will certainly tell everyone else how to do it. Papa Wally has been waiting, and will yell for Tootsie to come give him a kiss, and she will hear him, he didn't have to use the dry board. She will wait for each and every one of us and will keep daily tabs on how often we speak kindly of her memory. The daily tabs may signify where you sit at the big dinner table. Gma was a tough lady, and raised a wonderful, loving, proud family who is also tough. We will stick together and get through this, we don't have a choice. Gma would want us to move on and be happy, but she'd also want us to think of her daily, and we will.

I will always remember her as my Aunt Tootsie, even though I was her brothers step-son she always treated me as if I was a part of the family. Love you Aunt Tootsie and I will deeply miss you.
