If roses grow in heaven Lord please pick a dozen for me.
Place them in my Mon's arms and tell her they are from me.
Tell her I Love her & miss her and when she turns to smile place a kiss upon her cheek and hold her for awhile for me.
Because remembering her is easy, I do it every day.
But there is an ache within my heart that will never go away...

Mom, I've tried to add another message to your guest book but somehow it won't let me. I placed a comment on your birthday-wishing you happy birthday-knowing you are with Dad now. I did place some flowers on your grave site with a large red kiss. I tried to write another message on your fourth week of leaving us and again it did not take. I talk to you often in my Jeep while I'm driving. I hope you can hear me. I miss you. There are so many things I want to thank you for but I think you already know. I've been struggling with my selfish thoughts cause I wanted you to stay. I wanted you to know that you will be another Great Yia Yia and maybe I'll have that girl I've always wanted. If I do then I hope to pass on your values and strong heart. I still cry often and talk about you so much. I quess thats my grieving process but mostly I was amazed how you handled your illness. Every time you strived to jump one hurdle another one came up. I think you just got tried. I remembered on Christmas eve you told me you Loved me! I held you hand and kissed you but I didn't think you wanted to leave yet. There I go again wishing you could of stayed a few more weeks, months but God needed you. I had to let you go. You were talking to Dad and God. I knew then that your life was complete. Mom I love you more then you know. Please give me a sign that you are OK. Love your little Angel/baby Jane.

Mom, Its been two weeks since you left us and I was afraid I wouldn't say the right words so here I go. Since I'm the youngest you always protected me and I can't thank you enough. You raised me to be an independent women and not give up on anything. I joined the United States Air Force like Dad but I had the drive to be my own person~like you. I wanted to have children and give them good values like you gave me (and I did). It was my honor and pleasure to help you during your illness.You again taught me things I never knew. You made me stronger and believe not to give up. I remembered growing up that someone said, "JoAnn you had three great children, one of each, boy,girl and angel". Oh thats what I said!!! Yes, I am your angel but you are the one with wings now!! Someday we will meet again and I will fly to you & Dad but for now I'll keep talking to you & hoping you can answer me somehow. Mom I love you so much and cry often but its OK. You needed to be with Dad and I get it. I want you to know that your children will keep the candle lite here for a while but someday our flames will be out and we will be together again. Please watch over us and know that every inch of me is part of you and Dad and I can't thank you enough. Again, thank you for your wisdom, warmth, kindness, and your unconditional love (your little girl-Jane/angel)
