You are more than just my cousin. You are my friend, my teacher, and the one that means the most to me with the biggest honor is my Big Sis. The memories of laughter and tears will always be a part of me and be cherished. I will share with my children, the fond memories and stories of you, who you have dearly touched in their short lives. You definitely had an impact on everyone you met. The day you passed Brianna told me “it's okay Momma, MaryBeth is in Heaven watching out for us and is dancing around.”
I totally believe you are watching over us. So there will not be a day that I look up to the skies and find that brightest star and wish you were still here.
You are a STAR and one of the brightest ones above. You always lit up the room with your personality, smile, and definitely with your style (sparkly accessories and fun clothing). I will always cherish our time canning, cruising up and down FM 1960 on St. Patty's day, searching for that cute little black dress for homecoming, doing my makeup and our trip to Nacogdoches in which we found my first rental with of course the PINK bedroom znd the many more memories I have. The endless trips to College Station (bonfire and hurricane escapee) were exciting and crazy. I know I would've stayed the little naïve girl I was if it wasn't for you saving me.
Peron you and MaryBeth were my image of true love. I remember when I first met you at my mom's house. You and MeBe were so young. It was cute to see the special looks you both shared when you caught the other one looking. And to this day your face lights up whenever you see a picture or someone speaks of her. Your love for each other was what every girl dreams about…. Falling in love with a man who is willing to go far and above to love the woman he married. Your love was one of the strongest bonds I have witnessed in my life. My heart aches for the pain you are going through.
Aunt Pat your love for your daughter was a special bond which included a loving relationship and friendship. You both had very elegant taste in jewelry and style. I know you will miss her dearly. My heart aches for you.
I love you big sis
MaryBeth you will always live in our hearts and prayers.
