Holding you and your family up in prayer during this time of your mother's home going..... Praying for comfort and grace to fall on you.
So sorry for your loss of your mom
love and prayers
I was honored to be at Madge's 90th birthday celebration, and at several other family gatherings. As a friend of Marti and Bruce, I felt privileged to be included in such a welcoming way. Madge and I hit it off right off the bat, and my only regret is not having known her longer. My prayers and condolences to all of you who have known and loved this special woman down through the years. From Carolyn Yarbrough
Our condolences to the Moore Family...we are so sorry. She was such a beautiful soul.
Our hearts are with you all at this time. -Espenschied Family
Mema loved my husband as her own grandson, and so then myself when we married. Our grandparents being deceased, she stepped in for us at our wedding as "honorary grandmother" and oohed and ahed over our babies when they were born. She filled a missing piece in our lives, stepping in as surrogate grandmother. We loved her dearly.
I will miss my Aunt Madge very much; she and my Uncle were a big part of my childhood and growing up. I have spent a lot of time visiting and hanging out with my Aunt Madge and my Uncle thru the years with my parents. They were always there for me and always made me feel welcome, the door was always open - when I was young, when my parents moved away, and when my parents returned (who retired close to Aunt Madge and Uncle Doyle to be in walking distance).
From the moment I met Mema, she accepted me with open arms and an open heart into the family. I love her feistiness and her stubborness. She was a woman after my own heart! What I love most though, was seeing her with my husband, her grandson. The banters, the laughs, and the love shared between them two is inspiring. You would often hear Mema tell John "I love you," to which John would reply "I love you more!" and Mema's response would be, "but I loved you first." I will miss you Mema. Thank you for allowing me into your life.
My awesome Mom always did things her way. She was an Air Force wife who HATED moving. She also knew she did not want to go to a skilled nursing facility. I told her Friday that she would be moving on Monday to a different more skilled care home. She, very un characteristically, smiled and said "okay, fine" almost like she knew a secret she wasn't going to share with me. She did it her way, as usual.
