Dearest Mom
I miss you more than you could ever know.
I will always miss you untill that glorious day God calls us home or Jesus returns for us. I had told you that I believe that I will see Jesus coming back for us, and I believe it more every day. Either way I WILL be coming home forever in heaven with my heavenly family. I will be so happy to see you and all of my family but most of all to look upon my Lord God and look up to Jesus and to tell him thank you for loving me enough to give his life for me.
Until that day Mom I wish you a Happy Valentine's day tomorrow.
Always your baby girl I am,

Today I come with a heavy heart. But I know you are rejoicing in welcoming home another family member. We will forever miss Uncle Howard until we are forever joined together again.
Give him a great big hug to welcome him home and one for me as well.
I love you so very much and miss you even more!!!
Until that glorious day!
I am forever your loving daughter,

Dearest Mom,
I so miss you more with each passing day. People have told me that it gets better with time, I just don't think that is true in this case. Now that you have Rick there with you, you know it was just a short time of your passing that Rick joined you, Grannie,Dad and the rest of our family. Now I know you all are just waiting on me to join you all. Almost all of my family are with you now just one uncle and three aunts,cousins and my nieces and nephews. I will be joining you all one day, and I would love it if you all would be at the pearly gates with open arms to greet me. I can't wait to stroll the streets of gold with my family at my side. Until that sweet day! Always your loving daughter and best friend. Mitzi

Hi Mom,
I just wanted to wish you a very happy Mothers Day.
Also to let you know that Robert did get to meet the Governor and get his 911 award for saving your life. He was so proud as was I, I told you I'd make sure he got it and now he does.
Mom the children miss you.
But no one can begin to know how much I miss you everyday,that feeling never leaves me,no matter what I do, I never knew how much it was going to hurt.
I still catch myself wanting to pick up the phone to call you, I wish at times it was me that left that night instead of you. But God needed you first. And I know He makes no mistakes. The hurt of your loss runs to the deepest part of my soul, so deep it's not reachable.
I wish you much love as you rejoice with your heavenly family.
Tell Dad and Grannie I love them too.
Thank you for the orchids you send each year for my birthday,the ones for this year are still in bloom.
Take care and I will see you later.
I love you Mom from all my heart.
Always your little girl,

Hi Mom,
I just wanted you to know that I love you very much and I miss you. There is still not a day that goes by that you are not in my thoughts, but now it is the wonderful memories that we have made together that now are in my mind and heart.
Look down on us and as you are walking the streets paved in gold just know that one sweet day we will all be together again, your grandchildren miss you too very much.They send their love, as do Chris and I. Tell Dad and Grannie that we love them and we will see them again. Keep a watch on us from heaven, as you rejoice.
We love you Mom,
Mitzi and Chris

I just want you to know that your family is here for you during this difficult time. I can not say that I know how you are feeling because my mother too is my best friend and I can not imagine life without her. You and I both are very blessed to have such wonderful women in our lives.
I remember Aunt Dot always smiling and happy and of course her love for the grandkids and her children. She will greatly be missed by all who knew her.
We love you,
Cindy Tittle and family

Dearest Mom,
There will never be one second of one day that passes that I won't miss you,your smile,and the love that we shared.The joy that you have brought to not only my life,but to All that have known you and the hearts of the so very many that you have touched and the ones that so dearly love you. You will be greatly missed.
Mom I know that you are in a much better place,far better than we could ever imagine,and I know God welcomed you home that night with open arms,you looked so at peace and I know that you are at peace.
You are not only my Mom but my best friend,and forever I will be lost without you until God calls us home.
Rest in peace Mom,for I know one sweet day we will ALL be together again in a place with no pain,no tears,no heartaches,no suffering ever again.
Forever your loving daughter,
July 23, 2006
I am so very sorry for your loss but as we talked about tonight, your Mother is in a much better place now. As I told you, I know my Mother is also. She had also suffered enough.
If there is ever anything I can do for you and your family, please call me. I will keep in touch.
July 21, 2006
Mom, I am happy to know you are finally and forever at peace, in the Lord's presence. Gone are the pain and heartaches that this world visited on you. I thank you for the joy you've brought to our lives.

Cheri, Mandy, and I love and miss you so very much. We wish you everlasting heavenly peace; we await with joyous anticipation the day when we will all forever be together again.

Your son, Rick

To my dearest family, some things I'd like to say...
but first of all, to let you know, that I arrived okay.
I'm writing this from heaven. Here I dwell with God above.
Here, there's no more tears of sadness; here is just eternal love.

Please do not be unhappy just because I'm out of sight.
Remember that I'm with you every morning, noon and night.
That day I had to leave you when my life on earth was through,
God picked me up and hugged me and He said, "I welcome you."

It's good to have you back again; you were missed while you were gone.
As for your dearest family, they'll be here later on.
I need you here badly; you're part of my plan.
There's so much that we have to do, to help our mortal man."

God gave me a list of things, that he wished for me to do.
And foremost on the list, was to watch and care for you.
And when you lie in bed at night, the day's chores put to flight.
God and I are closest to you....in the middle of the night.

When you think of my life on earth, and all those loving years
because you are only human, they are bound to bring you tears.
But do not be afraid to cry; it does relieve the pain.
Remember there would be no flowers, unless there was some rain.

I wish that I could tell you all that God has planned.
But if I were to tell you, you wouldn't understand.
But one thing is for certain, though my life on earth is o'er.
I'm closer to you now, than I ever was before.

There are many rocky roads ahead of you and many hills to climb;
but together we can do it by taking one day at a time.
It was always my philosophy and I'd like it for you too...
that as you give unto the world, the world will give to you.

If you can help somebody who's in sorrow and pain,
then you can say to God at night......"My day was not in vain."
And now I am contented....that my life has been worthwhile,
knowing as I passed along the way, I made somebody smile.

So if you meet somebody who is sad and feeling low,
just lend a hand to pick him up, as on your way you go.
When you're walking down the street, and you've got me on your mind;
I'm walking in your footsteps only half a step behind.

And when it's time for you to go.... from that body to be free,
remember you're not going.....you're coming here to me.
