I miss you.
June 27, 2013
Rest in peace my Dear friend. We grew apart years ago, but I never forgot all the good times we had together and I never will. You had a good heart and you were a great Mom. I'm so glad Jodi gave you grandbabies to spoil and love. I was saddened to see you had past. We have lost our son at age 21 on Father's Day in 2011 and my Dad in September of 2012. And now a special friend.
My deepest sympathy to Jodi and your family.
Sincerely, Chrissy

I remember the smile.

I remember the first day I met Mommit. It was the day after I met Jodi. Jodi took me to meet her parents at their house on the river in Omaha. Mommit greeted us with her usual big smile and a welcoming “Hi, I'm Susie.” I will always remember that smile. She greeted us with that same smile hundreds of times over the years. She always beamed with that great big smile every time Jodi, the kids and I saw her. I miss her smile today.



I remember Mommit's kind heart.

Mommit was always there for us whenever we needed her. Once, Jodi frantically called her from the airport at six in the morning. We had left some luggage hanging on the bathroom door in our haste to make our early flight to Florida with the kids. Mommit raced to our home and to the airport with our forgotten luggage, just in time for us to make it onto the plane. There were countless times like that over the years. She never hesitated. She never made a fuss. She was always there to help her family when we needed her. I miss her kind heart today.



I remember Mommit's love.

Mommit lost her soulmate when Jim died in January. It was easy to see on her face the terrible loss and heartbreak she was going through. But through it all, she tried to comfort the rest of us with our loss of Papa. That same smile came back out when we spoke of times past and the good times we all had. The sorrow was pushed aside and only the love remained. I miss that love today.



I remember Mommit's joy.

Mommit was truly joyful throughout her life. She was joyous greeting each new grandchild at the hospital. She was joyous when she greeted family returning from vacation. She was joyous when she brought us into her home for family dinners. She was joyous hanging out with Nanny and Buddy Boy every moment she could. She was joyous while watching the kids play in the back yard of their home in Omaha. She was joyous taking care of the animals on the farm in Iowa. She was joyous making quilts for family members. She was joyous as she baked Christmas cookies with Jodi and built gingerbread houses with the kids. She was joyous for these and so many other times in her life. I miss that sense of joy today.



I will always remember her smile, her kind heart, her love, and they joy she gave to each of us. We are blessed to have known Mommit.



Today, I am happy she has found peace after some difficult times and take comfort knowing that she is again with Jim, Nanny, Buddy Boy, Cassie and all of those she loved that left us before her. Every soul in Heaven is now blessed with her smile, her kind heart, her love and her joy.



I will always remember her smile.

Mommit, I always felt a special bond because of the way your nick name came about when I heard my mom ask papa "where's mom at." It was special to me that you chose to go by this name for over 20 years after. There were plenty of other bonds we had as well though. I remember being excited for your delicious dinners and you reading me my favorite stories. I remember going from making anti smoking signs and litrrature for you to smoking with you on the back porch with coffee in the morning and after i quit youd ask me for tips. When I was living with you and papa I remember how you'd tell me off (half jokingly) if I came home with tacos and didn't bring you one or how you loved when I brought friends over and you'd treat them all like family. You treated everyone that way: with an enormous amount of love and warmth. I'm so grateful to have had the time and memories with you that I had. You and papa were a huge part of my life and I'm happy that you don't have to miss him anymore. I will miss you both forever. Like we used to say to each other when I was little: I love you to the moon and back.
Love, Timothy

Dear Mommit,
I really dreaded writing this because I don't want to accept the fact that you're gone... it doesn't even seem real. One day you seemed fine, and the next day everything just changed... Ill never forget all of the memories we shared together. I remember when you took care of me after I got my tonsils out, I remember calling you on the phone everyday for hours while we played webkinz together, I remember when we sewed a little quilt together, and when you took me to my choir performances... And I'll never forget my last memory that I have of us when you weren't sick... We went to Babes and you hugged me, and you said you loved me when I left... Ill always remember your special hugs because you'd squeeze me and never let go. You and Papa always called me Princess and it makes me sad that I won't be hearing that anymore... You were such a special part of my life and it makes me so sad that you had to leave us all at such a young age. But I'm really glad that your suffering is over and that you can be with Papa and Cassandra... A few weeks ago you told me that you wanted to have a talk with me about some "important things" and now I'll always wonder what you were going to say... Ill never forget the last time we talked at the hospital on the Sunday before you passed... Even though you couldn't talk, you told me you loved me and that you wanted my mom and I to make you brownies! I thought for sure that everything was going to turn around and you'd be back home with us in no time...But I am so glad that I got to say goodbye to you that day. The night you went to Heaven, I held your hand and watched as you took your final breaths. You finally looked so peaceful... I'm going to miss you so much. I love you more than words can describe and you will always be my Mommit as well as the most beautiful angel in Heaven. I can't wait until we meet again. Rest in peace.
Love, your princes

Dear Mom,

I am very blessed to be your daughter. As I have grown, so has my appreciation and love for you.

When I was a young child there were so many things I didn't understand. You worked so hard and sacrificed so much for me. There were many dreams that you put on hold and dreams that never came true. I'm sure there were times that you were frustrated, yet you never gave less than your very best to me. You didn't have an exciting job and never traveled the world or expected to have big fancy things. You looked after me, worried about me, nurtured me and loved me without expecting anything in return. I know now that you actually gave me two lives, my own and yours. I hope and pray I can do as well as you did raising me, with my own children.

I am so blessed to have two of the best parents, six of the best children, a sweet daughter-in-law, two darling grandchildren, and an amazing husband, a loving family and very dear friends. You taught me how to appreciate the important things…my family. You have been one of the most positive and significant influences in my life. Thank you for being such a wonderful role model. You've been the greatest mother to me, teaching me many things that others never see. You always called to say hello and let me know that you care. I really miss our morning conversations and heart to heart talks, while sharing our cup of coffee.

I miss all your words of encouragements and continuous praise. You are the one person I could count on to love me unconditionally. I miss your smile and your warm touch. You are now my angel and the one who looks over me and cares about me.

You are my beautiful angel and I am so grateful that I was with you, holding you, when you took your last breath. I know you were scared and I didn't want you to be alone.I know you are at peace and in God's garden with Daddy and other loved ones.

I will embrace all my memories of you and I know you will always be by my side. You will always be my special angel in the sky and I will look for you in the rainbows.

I miss you mom, my best friend, more than you know.

I will love you for eternity.

Love, your Jodi

Dear Mommit,

I love you so much and will send you a kiss to heaven every night. I turn my star light on for you and make wishes for you. I will sing to you and make you songs too.

You were so much fun and I miss you coming over to my house to play with me. I loved watching "Annie" with you and singing all the songs together.

I hope you are happy now that you aren't sick anymore.

I love you, Lainie

Dear Mommit,

I remember when I was seven and I hugged you it made all my days happy. I liked it when you came to my house to watch us and we watched movies together. Now, the last hug you gave me made my heart sing and I will treasure it forever. You are very special to me and I miss you.

I love you, mommit.

Love, Aaron

Dear Mommit,

You were such a wonderful part of my life and always gave me so much and encouragement. You were always in my corner and I love you for that.

I am really going to miss hanging out at your house, cooking dinner with and watching TV together. You were a great friend to me. I will always remember our trip to Omaha just the two of us. We had such a great time and made many memories together.

I am really glad you are with papa again. I know how sad you were to lose him and how much you missed him. I am glad we all got to see you and spend time with you.

You were so wise, patient, and gave me and others so much guidance. It's these and many other things that make us realize how lucky we have been to have such an amazing woman as our grandmother.

I love you mommit.

Love, Johnathon

Dear Jodi and family,
As you know I have known your mom and dad since before you we're even born and will miss my oldest and dearest friends.
I'm glad they are both together again and watching over your family. I had plan to visit your mom when I was able to travel again. Your mother always made me laugh and was always in good spirits. When I wake up in the morning we use talk in person then on the computer and phone. As I sit and drink my coffee her Smiling face and the sound of her voice will always enter my mind.
I Love You Sussie !

My memories of Susie go way back. She became a part of our family many years ago when she married my dear brother Jim. We've had a lot of fun together and I will treasure that forever. Susie will be in our hearts forever. My love to you Jodi and your beautiful family. May God give you comfort and strength that only He can give. Love to all, Aunt Nancy and Uncle John

Love and prayers to you and your family, Jodi. I have such fond memories of Aunt Susie. I remember her kindness so many times when we were little. And Uncle Jim always had such a great sense of humor. They were such a great pair. They will be missed! I am so glad they are together now.
