hey grandma its me Terry. God has put me on an emotional rollercoaster these past 2 years. my little family is doing well. growing stronger which each passing day. ive had some health issues myself as im sure you know about them. i cant even imagine where to begin with how much i hurt emotionally and physically. Grandma i just didnt think life would be this hard without any supportive family around to guide me, help me along the way. when you died it was so hard for me and it still is, even after all these years. i know your always with me, but i feel all alone. no one can understand my pain and deep sorrow i feel each day. i wish i could just get a sign that you are still here with me and that would be my ray of sunshine on this dark and cloudy life of mine. well i gotta go. But remember i always think about you and i love you very much.

heres a pic of the girls. aren't they gourgous?

Hello trina or nola. I need to get in contact with you. so get in touch with me through this email link. Leave your numbers.

I remember moms B-day by staying STRONG. She was a fighter. I can remember when she was non responsive at the emergency room, the nurse asked me to hold her hand and ask her if she could hear me to squeeze my hand. I use to always see this on movies. I asked her and said, mom, if you can hear me squeeze my hand...and she did...thats when i started crying. she responded to my voice.

Hello everyone...my family members...Tymeaus, Trina and Nola. Today is our sisters birthday, September 4th...this is the day our mom birthed our beautiful, highly intelligent sister in this world.It's the big three next to the the number that represents completion.

As baby brother, I Samerial Lawrence Armstrong wish Nola Ann Armstrong a happy birthday to the decillionth power! I love you and thank you for being a great help and comfort to me this summer. May your best years be the rest of your years on this earth.

Our mother might not have got everthing right, but also, we and the rest of the population have not got everthing right.

Terretha Armstrong is our hero, she kept all of us from becoming zero's. Terrethe Armstrong taught us to keep fighting, even when it appears that the fight is over.

To not have alot of matERIAL things to give us, she gaves us what we needed to go out and get the matERIAL's we desire for ourselves. Again...Happy birthday NOLA ANN ARMSTRONG 3(9)+(20-17+7)

Hello mom! It's your first born taking some time to write to you. Still working on the house and it's almost finished. I have had a trying time for over a year, but I am going to hang in there. It seems that the habits that I am working on are a little harder to break than I thought. No matter what I will not give up! I have a hard problem of listening and to people and cutting them off before they are finished and I do it a lot to my wife. I just want to stop this and be a better listener, this will make me feel much better about myself. Well... my grandaughters and grandson our both doing well and getting bigger! everyday. Wish you were here to see them... but I know that your looking down on all of us. Love you much... your fist born Ty. P.S. Send me a sign from time to time that you are watching me.:-)

Mom, I haven't posted anything in a while but there isn't a day that goes by that I don't miss you. I read a book recently where a little boy's mother died before he spoke a word. His first words were: "She was my spirit of things". That touched my heart because thats the way I feel about you. I listen to this song almost everyday to keep me going and to remember that you are in a better place watching over me. I love you, Nola

Mariah Carey- One Sweet Day

I won't be afraid
I'll be alright if you help me
I know you're looking down from heaven
And I won't let you down
I'll be everything you taught me
And all that I know is I'll wait
Patiently to see you in heaven)

Sorry I never told you
All I wanted to say
And now it's too late to hold you
'Cause you've flown away
So far away

Never had I imagined
Living without your smile
Feeling and knowing you're hearing me
It keeps me alive

And I know you're shining down on me from heaven
Like so many friends we've lost along the way
And I know eventually we'll be together
One sweet day

And I'll wait
Patiently to see you in heaven

Darling I never showed you
(I never showed you)
Assumed you'd always be there
I though you'd always be there)
And I, I took your presence for granted
But I always cared
(But I always cared)
And I miss the love we shared

And I know you're shining down on me from heaven
Like so many friends we've lost along the way
(Lost along the way)
And I know eventually we'll be together
(We'll be together)
One sweet day

And all that I know is I'll wait
Patiently to see you in heaven
Although the sun will never shine the same
I'll always look to a brighter day
Lord I know when I lay me down to sleep
You will always listen as I pray

And I know you're shining down on me from heaven
Like so many friends we've lost along the way
And I know eventually we'll be together
(We'll be together)
One sweet day

And I know you're shining down on me from heaven
(I'll see you eventually)
Like so many friends we've lost along the way
(I know you're looking down from heaven)
And I know eventually we'll be together
(Yes we will)
One sweet day

Patiently to see you in heaven
Sorry I never told you
All I wanted to say

A Thanksgiving Dedication:

A Song For Mama by Boyz II Men

You taught me everything,
And everything you've given me, I'll always keep it inside.
You're the driving force in my life, yeah.
There isn't anything or anyone that I can be,
And it just wouldn't feel right,
If I didn't have you by my side.
You were there for me to love and care for me,
When skies were grey.
Whenever I was down,
You were always there to comfort me.
And no one else can be what you have been to me,
You'll always be,
You will always be the girl in my life for all times.

Mama, Mama you know I love you,
(Oh, you know I love you),
Mama, Mama you're the queen of my heart.
Your love is like tears from the stars.
Mama, I just want you to know,
Lovin' you is like food to my soul.

You're always down for me,
Have always been around for me,
Even when I was bad.
You showed me right from my wrong,
(Yes you did).
And you took up for me,
When everyone was downin' me,
You always did understand,
You gave me strength to go on.
There was so many times,
Looking back when I was so afraid.
And then you come to me and say to me,
I can face anything.
And no one else can do,
What you have done for me.
You'll always be,
You will always be the girl in my life.


Never gonna go a day without you.
Fills me up just thinking about you.
I'll never go a day without my Mama.

My birthday was yesterday and I missed you so much. My Happy Birthday phone call at the crack of dawn with your voice booming through the receiver singing at the top of your lungs was absent. I think of you everyday and miss you for something different you brought to my life. Thank you for giving me life and I hope that I am making you proud.

Loving and Missing You Always,

I want to send my love to the family. I know that at times, it seems difficult to go on, but know that you were well loved, and your mother knew how much you all loved her. As time passes, the wounds heal, the pain will ease, but the memories will never fade. ~Dee

Mom, I miss you with all my heart. I remembered today how we used to dye Easter eggs and waking up on Easter Sunday thinking the Easter Bunny had come. You filled my life with such miracles. I still can't believe you are gone. Life changes in an instant. You taught me that with a smile on your face. I love you. Nola
April 10, 2003
It is so hard to believe you are not here with us. Everytime I see your pictures, I shed a few tears. Ariana and I miss you dearly. So much has happened since you passed. There have been times where I wished I could have called you just to have you tell me "everything was going to be alright". I hold on to all of the wonderful memories I have of you to strengthen me during this time and deep on the inside of me, I know that there is a part of you there and I am so very proud of that.

We Love you and miss you dearly.
