My Precious and Beautiful Mother,
Every day I hold you so closely in my heart, and on this warm Mother's Day I am missing you and honoring you so very very much! You are in every beautiful flower I see, and in the most amazing blossoming tree. Mt heart is heavy wanting to talk with you and share everything with you. There are no words to properly express the love, devotion and complete adoration your children will always have for you! You were and always will be the most perfect Mother, unconditionally. Our world is just not the same without you here, not as bright, not as promising, but we know because of how you raised us, to appreciate that we were fortunate to have had the most incredible upbringing by the most incredible Mommy. We will be happy knowing that you are the most gentle and loving part of our hearts and souls, and always will be. For Mother's Day, I wanted to honor you,and to tell you that you are missed and loved more than anyone could possibly be.
With all of my heart, love and devotion,
Your adoring daughter Linda
My beautiful Mother,
Mother's Day is here once again and as always, my every thought is of you. You are the very embodiment of the word "mother" -- your amazing selflessness, caring and love for all of us was reflected in everything you did from the beautiful clothes you made to the delicious meals so lovingly prepared to the way you would drop anything you were doing if one of your children needed you -- everything you did was out of love for your family. And although a wonderful day to honor all the caring and deserving mothers, it is so very, very hard now for me to even celebrate the day -- to me, YOU were the reason to celebrate Mother's Day. I miss you more and more each and every day...time does not heal all wounds nor does it ease the enduring pain of losing you. Granny speaks often and very lovingly of all the wonderful times and special visits she had with "my Mary" -- she misses you desperately but thankfully is still a strong and amazing woman. It isn't hard to see that your nurturing and loving nature was passed down from your own incredible mother...she is very dear to all of us and we will continue to keep her close. And on this Mother's Day, as on all days, I will celebrate you and all you instilled in me as a mother to my own beautiful children -- I learned from the very best. Missing you desperately, your forever adoring daughter, Cindy
Mother, I miss you so very much. I decorated the mantel where I have your picture. I hope you like it. Nothing compares to your beauty, inside and out. I don't think time heals all wounds, as I think about you every day and throughout every day. There are absolutely no words that express how I feel. How much I miss you and very much still need you. I sometimes have dreams with you in them; just not as frequent as I wish. I know the one dream you reassured me you were doing okay. I really love the dreams I have when you are in them. What I would not give to get one of your love-filled hugs or to talk to you, to hear your voice.
Spring is coming (I think) and I already bought bulbs of beautiful flowers to go in my garden that I have for you. It is not near as wonderful as your gardens, but I am still learning. We, of course, will be working in your gardens this spring as well. Daddy gets the flowers and we all help plant them. My hope is you are watching us from above and enjoy the views.
Just wanted to drop you a note. I do not do it often as I talk to you often in my mind, my heart and when I feel I need to.
I love you, always missing you, Kathie
Dearest, most precious Mother,
This world was a happier, more beautiful place with you here Mommy. I so desperately miss talking with you, sharing events and times with you. Our lives have forever changed because our brightest light was taken from us. I love you always so very much... Your adoring daughter, Linda
Mother, I miss you...I need to hear your voice again. Time does not make things easier; every day that passes just makes me miss you more. We are now in 2015 and you should be here with us. I love you so very, very much. Your children made sure that Granny had a nice Christmas and she loves her tree. I told her that you helped to decorate it.
Always, with tears,
Your adoring daughter, Lori
The Christmas season will never be the same without your beautiful ever so loving presence, to share this time of year with.
I would have loved to spend the holiday with Granny and Papa. Family is always most impostant in life and words can't express how much you are missed and loved.
I love you so much.
My beautiful Mother,
On this Christmas Day, so many thoughts of you again filled the day...as they continue to do every day. We all lovingly remember the many wonderful Christmas's spent with you and Daddy and how very, very special they were to all of us. Delicious oranges and Lifesaver books were particular favorites in our stockings each year as was making toll house chocolate chip cookies, coconut bonbons and mouth-watering fudge. You always took special care to ensure we each had a very memorable and unique Christmas and these precious memories will live in our hearts forever. Shawna wrapped a couple gifts for me this year and, in keeping with another wonderful tradition you started, noted on the tags that the gifts were from "Rudolph", "the elves", "Mrs. Claus" and other beloved Christmas figures. So many of the sweet and thoughtful gestures you instilled in us are now also being appreciated and instilled in our children -- your legacy of love and unique family traditions will continue for years to come. Your giving, nurturing nature and selflessness was always second to none -- nothing made you happier than seeing your family happy. We will forever be grateful for all the love and for all the precious Christmas memories and family traditions. You will always be our own very special Christmas angel. With all my love, your adoring daughter, Cindy
My Sweetest Mommy,
I miss you more than I can ever express. You are in my every thought. This is the hardest time of the year, although every day is hard without you. I wish so much you were back with us - to watch your grandchildren grow, to someday see your great-grandchildren. They will know you, because you will always be remembered to our children and our children's children. I felt your presence all weekend, as Tin and I celebrated your life in NYC. I made potpie yesterday and used Grandma's soup bowls for the first time ever and in the middle of the bowls was the tiny stuffed kitty cat that Granny gave to me that was once yours. I hadn't been able to find it for years and thought I had lost it. I know that you put it there for me to see it and somehow knew that I would go to use those bowls. I love you more than anything in the world, Mommy, and I wish, hope and pray that you can feel the love that your family is sending you long distance. Your forever-adoring daughter, Lori
Every time I come to write something here, I never know quite what to say. It's been a few days past 2 years. Not a moment goes by where you are not missed. I love and miss you more than words can say. I look at the digital photo album we have on our kitchen counter filled with pictures of you. We all love and miss you so so so much, I can't say that enough.
I know you're still with all of us. Although, it's not the same.
I love you so much Nana.
<3 <3 <3
My Beautiful Mother,
Two years ago today, my heart -- all of our hearts -- were broken forever. I would give anything in this world to have you back, to see your face one more time, to talk, laugh and joke with you or just see your angelic smile. I think of you every day -- today is the hardest of them all. You were taken from us way too soon and not a moment goes by that I don't wonder why. We are missing you so, so very much and love you more than words could ever express. With all our love forever, Cindy, Crystal and Shawna
My Beautiful Mother,
I spent this past weekend with one of the most precious women in the world -- your dear Mother, my lovely Granny and Crystal and Shawna's amazing Great-Granny. She looks as radiant and beautiful as ever and her wit is just as sharp. She is sweet and incredible and we enjoyed every second with her. We spent an entire evening quietly looking through your photo album and although it was so, SO very hard, I had to see each and every precious photo of you. Each image was immediately imprinted on my heart from your darling baby pictures all the way through adulthood. I wish with all my heart and soul that I could turn back the hands of time so you would be with us again. We miss you so very, very much and would give anything in this world to have you here. I know Granny loves her hugs so we gave her as many as we could fit into those 3 days and she beamed with every squeeze. I also plan on seeing her again very soon and hope to celebrate her upcoming 102nd birthday with her -- I know you would want nothing more than to have Granny surrounded by her loving family on her special day. I still call Granny nightly and will do so as long as I breathe -- I love her stories, our talks and her wonderful "Granny-isms" -- nobody can make up a term like she does and we both have a giggle when she uses them. Her laughter is infectious and pure music to my ears. As you and Daddy are the world to us, so is Granny and we will all ensure she is treated with the love and respect she so deserves...and as you would wish for her. I love you more than words can say and miss you desperately each and every day -- we all do. With all my love forever, your adoring daughter, Cindy
As I sit here trying to think of the words to day, well, I can't. The memories I have will remain for a lifetime. Not a day goes by where I don't think about you and miss
I love you and miss you very much Nana xoxoxoxoxoxoxoxoxoxoxoxoxoxoxoxoxoxoxoxoxoxoxoxoxoxoxoxoxoxoxoxoxoxoxoxoxoxoxoxoxoxoxoxoxoxoxoxoxoxoxoxoxoxoxoxoxoxoxoxoxoxoxooxoxoxoxoxoxox times infinity
My Dearest Love,
Today is our 57th wedding anniversary and you are in my heart and mind more than ever.
I think of you every day and feel your presence everywhere I go and in everything I do. I will spend the day reflecting on our wonderful life together and the wonderful family that we have.
I miss you oh so much! I will love you forever.
Your Loving Husband
My beautiful Mother,
Seventy-seven years ago today, the world was graced with the birth of a lovely baby girl who would grow into the most amazing woman and Mother on the planet. You were taken from us far, FAR too soon and there are no words to even attempt to explain the profound emptiness we all feel...it is never-ending. You are always in my heart and soul and I dreamed of you again last night -- it was so unbelievably real that I never wanted the dream to end. You were as happy, vibrant and beautiful as always. We were all picnicking at the farm and having a wonderful time -- just like we used to do. Your smile was as bright as the sun and it was a beautiful day. A perfect dream. The bitter, harsh reality set in when I opened my eyes and I desperately wanted to just fall back into the dream and stay there. I so miss talking with you -- Crystal was crowned "Queen of the Middle School" at her *graduation* tonight and it was simply amazing. I know you would have been there and you would have enjoyed the entire event -- it was wonderful.
I miss sharing all these events with you...I miss sharing everything. On this, your special day, I wanted to stop in -- your birthday is a very tough day to get through - as is every day. I hope you're enjoying a bite of angel food cake. I love you and miss you more each and every day. With all my love,your adoring daughter, Cindy
To the most beautiful Mother I have ever known, I miss you more each day; I cannot look at a child, a flower, an animal, the sunshine or listen to a song or hear an airplane without thinking of you; you are in every breath I take and every beat of my heart. I am certain that when God created Mothers, he had you in mind. I will always love Mother's Day because it is a day I can honor the best woman - the best Mother, the best person I have ever known. Although I am a Mother too and I have an amazing son, I could never be the Mother that you were and always will be - although I will do my best to follow your example. You have to know how much we all adore and miss you. We felt your presence on Mother's Day at Granny's as we talked about you and Granny even said, "I know that she is here with me today; I'm absolutely sure of it." We will always take care of and shower your beautiful Mother, our Granny, with love, as you always took care of us. Mommy, I miss your voice, your hugs, and telling you things. I ache for you to see how grown up our children are and all the things happening around us. I like to think that you know somehow and are here in our hearts and our spirits guiding and protecting us, although at times I am so profoundly sad that you are not here physically. Today, and every day, I celebrate you, and I could not be more grateful or feel more blessed because I was lucky enough to have you as my Mother. So, Happy Mother's Day, Mommy; I'm sure that you feel all our hugs and kisses and tears. With undying devotion and love, Lori
Dear Beautiful Mommy, Hiee!
I was mowing my grass today, the day after Mother's Day, and thought about you as I looked at all the gorgeous budding trees and flowers all around me. My heart aches for you, your smile, your voice, the comfort and love you gave to all of us... I thought of you all day yesterday as your "Tins" spent the day with your Mommy, our beautiful Granny. We talked about you and cried together as we so often do. We all miss you so very much it Hurts - so badly. the world was a brighter, more beautiful and loving place with you in it. I will never stop loving or missing you. It pains me to think of my future without you here, always interested in what was happening in all of our lives. You are and always will be my hero and role model, our most wonderful Mother who dedicated her entire existence to loving and nurturing her family; Always putting your family first - above all else, including yourself. I love you very very much, and I thank you on this Mother's Day for everything you have done to make our family what it is today. You are forever, entwined in our hearts and souls. Your forever adoring daughter with all of my love and devotion, Lindi
Dear Beautiful Mother,
Today is Mother's Day and as always, my thoughts are of you. All that you did as our mother will never, ever be forgotten. You always put us first, you were always there when we needed you and your soothing words and warm hugs always seemed to make things so much better. There is no doubt that you were born to be a Mother as you were always the most selfless, loving, giving, sharing, teaching and nurturing Mother anyone could ever dream of...and I would give anything in this world to have you back with us. I cannot let this day of honoring our mothers go by without my heartfelt tribute to you and I know all of us were filled with warm and loving thoughts of you today. There will never be another Mother as kind, as sweet and as dearly loved as you. Mother's Day was created because of mothers like you. I love you so, so much and miss you even more. With all my eternal love and gratitude on this Mother's Day, Cindy
My precious Mother...
Spring is finally here and every beautiful blooming flower and warm, sunny day reminds me of you. I miss you more than ever -- you are my first thought in the morning and my last thought before I go to sleep. We are all doing our very best to make sure Granny is taken care of as best we can -- she is doing quite well and is as sweet and witty as always. She enjoys walking down memory lane and I thoroughly enjoy listening to her fascinating stories of days gone by. We all delight in talking with her as she is our closest link to you and we are hers. Nothing can ever take the pain of losing you away nor take your special place in Granny's heart but we will do everything in our power to ensure your precious Mother knows she is very much loved as we dearly love you. Time has not healed my heart but I am doing my best to be strong for Crystal and Shawna as I know you would want. You were the most selfless, caring, patient, nurturing and devoted Mother this world has ever known and I am so very proud to be your daughter. I just wish I could wrap you up in a big warm hug and see your beautiful smile light up the Spring sky. We will be planting flowers at the farm soon and hope you will enjoy them. Their beauty cannot even begin to compare to yours but each one is lovingly planted as a tribute to you...and one we will continue every Spring. I miss you desperately and love you very, very much. With all my love and devotion, Cindy
Mother I miss you so very much. I know this is random and really did not think to add anything to this as I talk to you often, even out loud. I miss you more than anything. I still need you more than ever. I think about you all the time, daily. Your beautiful smile, your love, your hugs, your laughter so much about you that I just ache to see, hear, feel again. I love when I dream of you. It is not as often as I would like but I always feel better in my dreams when I see you. No days pass, time time moves forward where I feel disconnected. I love and miss you and believe wholly you are still my guiding light. Riley talks of you often. Her hair is now so very long and I always tell her how much I know you love it. I believe while you cannot watch her grow physically, I 100% believe you are seeing her grow. She talks about you so much and how you are in her heart. Love Kathie
It's a random day in January - the 15th to be exact. I dreamed of you last night and wanted so much to be with you. I still cannot believe you are not here for me to talk to, to hug, to tell you how much I love you. I heard a song today that reminded me of you....it made me miss you all the more. I want you back with us so much that I can't even breathe sometimes. I only hope that wherever you are, you can feel the love we are all sending you every day. I miss you so much, Mommy, I just want to hear your voice...I thought I heard you say my name in the mall one day. It was so clear, like you were standing right there. I whipped my head around only to see strangers. But, somehow, I think you were there anyway.
I love you more than anything in the whole wide world,
My Beautiful Mother,
Today is Christmas and I am missing you so very much. If I could have just one precious gift in this entire world, it would be to have you back with us. The holiday lights are no longer as bright and the mood is not as festive -- you brought the sparkle to our days with your warmth, your smile and most of all, your love of family. The sunset this evening was particularly beautiful and I thought immediately of you -- as I always do when I note the splendor of nature's beauty... and particularly with breathtaking sunsets. I like to think you are painting these magnificent canvasses in the heavens as a special message to us and the tip of your brush is coated with love. I also have a lovely ornament of you in a special spot on our tree but it can never take the place you will always fill in my heart. I miss you more than words can ever say. With all my love forever, your adoring daughter, Cindy
My Beautiful Mother,
It is truly hard to believe it has been a year since you were taken from us. I agree with Linda...it seems like just yesterday and yet it seems like a thousand years. You are my first thought in the mornings and my last thought every evening. I think of you virtually every waking moment and you are in dreams as well. There are no dreams more precious and beautiful than those where we are all together and where plenty of laughter and love surround us. I would give anything to have you back with us...the pain has not lessened and the special place you filled in my heart will never, ever be filled. I know this is horribly real yet it still seems surreal. I still think of calling you at least once a day...I just want to hear your voice. I want to see the smile that could light up a room. I love you dearly and miss you SO much more than words can ever express. Granny and I talk quite often and you are never far from her thoughts. She's also adopted an adorable cat who has been very good for her. She is strong and speaks lovingly of you often. I know you would be as proud of her as she has always been of you. We will take care of her as best we can -- as we know you would want. I love you and I miss you so, so much. With all my love forever, your adoring daughter, Cindy
My beautiful Mommy,
I MISS YOU more and more every day. Time does not heal the pain of you not here with us. It has been a year since you were taken from us - it feels like yesterday... it feels like a thousand years... I LOVE YOU SO MUCH...
Your Adoring Daughter and one of your "Tins," Linda
Dearest Precious Mommy,
We all miss you so very much. It is difficult to believe it has been a year since you left us. But we know you are still with us all, although not in your physical body. You are in a much better place with Jesus! We all must cope with our missing you as our own selfishness wants you back with us; we know you are in a place now where you would not want to leave to come back to this hurting world; to feel the sadness and pain that is ever present here. You are in a wonderful place in heaven that God promised no more tears, no more pain, and being there is better than life. We do miss you greatly, hurt that you are not here to hug and talk with, but it is our own desires that keep us in pain instead of being glad you are out of yours. I wish you could tell each one of us how much better it is for you where you are, and that you are just waiting for us, in God's time, to see us all again, and for the rest of eternity! How wonderful it will be to know we will never lose you again once we join you there. Jesus calls each one of us to believe in Him so that we all may be together with Him forever. I pray everyone will believe that so we will. It saddens me to think some are rejecting that, when really it is what we should all be clinging to with promised hope of being together forever.
Not a day goes by that I am not hurting because of my missing you, so I must remind myself that it is temporary until we see you again. What better hope can there be than a promise from God Himself that those who He calls His own will be together forever in Heaven?! No more goodbyes! It is just a "see you later"! My hope is in the One Who makes all things and is in control. God very God is perfect and will not fail, or make a mistake. And He never breaks a promise. We cannot even begin to think that we, as His creation, could possibly know more than Him, or tell Him what to do. In the end, we will see His plan and it will all make sense. Until then, I know we will miss you to the core of our souls, and the pain will be a shadow over us. The hope is what makes it bearable. We love and miss you Mommy. More than words can express, or tears can be counted. I love you Mommy. I love our family and how you and Daddy raised us. I hope we can all live our lives to reflect the love we were taught and shown. To be happy as you have always wanted us to be, no matter what our circumstances. Thank you for loving us they way you did, and do. I love you! Love, Diana
My Beloved Mary,
August 24, 1957 – August 24, 2013
Today is our 56th wedding anniversary. You are here and with me in my heart and soul as from the day that we met. I will love you always and forever. The children and I miss you so very, very much.
The void in my heart is so great that words cannot begin to express it. You are my very life and soul and your spirit is with me every single day.
The years we spent together were the most wonderful years of my life and will never ever be forgotten. The vacations with the children, the many, many trips we took, and the quiet times we shared will always be with me. Those memories will sustain and comfort me until the end of my days.
You are my love and will be forever. I miss you so very much.
Until we are together again, my love,
Your loving and devoted husband
My Beautiful Mommy,
I miss you more and more everyday. The pain and emptiness without you is so very unbearable. You were always the bright light in our lives and these past eight months since you have been gone have been so dim. I try to be happy in everything that I do because that is what you would want, and just thinking of your beautiful face and sweet and loving way makes my heart just ache for my "mommy fix." Every time a see an amazing flower or baby animal I know you are there seeing them with me. I love you more than words could ever possibly express! Thank you for being the most precious mother any daughter could ever hope to have.
All my love from your loving daughter and one of your "twin girls," You are forever in my whole heart, Linda
My Beautiful Mother, I cannot believe you were taken from us 8 months ago today. My heart aches more and more with each passing day and I still think of calling you several times during the day. I listen to your lovely voice on the messages I have saved and will treasure them forever. The flowers we all planted on the farm (with your loving, guiding hand) look absolutely beautiful. Daddy is making sure they are watered regularly (and I know you'd be quite proud of him for that). I can just imagine you are tending heavenly gardens that would take our breath away. I miss you so, so very much and love you more than words could ever say. I just needed to talk with you a minute -- our nightly talks on the phone were always the high point of my day and I cannot bear the silence now. With all my heart and soul, your loving daughter, Cindy
My sweet, beautiful Mommy,
Because you were born, the world was, is and always will be a much better place. I hope you will enjoy your birthday knowing that your family is loving you and remembering you as our precious, sweet and perfect soul. I miss you so very much! So many things are happening that I want to share with you. Deep within my heart I can feel your presence in everything I do. I hope you can hear me when I talk with you. I too will plant a tree at our new house today as the foundation for a beautiful memorial garden, that will overlook Otisco Lake, for you. I love you with all of my heart and soul.
Your loving & adoring daughter always, Linda
My Beautiful Mother - I hope you are having a wonderful birthday. I miss you so much; I still cannot believe you are not here. I so desperately want to talk to you and hug you. Today, Aaron was recognized at his school for his academic achievements. Aaron was so happy to be receiving his Presidential award for academic excellence today - on your birthday. I know you were beaming as he walked up on stage. I am going to plant a rose today in your beautiful gardens and I will plant something every year so that you can always see your garden growing with the love that you always gave so abundantly. I love you so much, Mommy and my world is so lonely without you here to talk to. I will miss you every day of my life until I see you again. Happy Birthday, my sweet Mommy, I love you more than anything in the whole wide world.
With my love forever, and with an aching heart, your adoring daughter, Lori
My Beautiful Mother, Your birthday is now here and my heart is aching to give you a never-ending hug. This is another especially difficult day for me as I remember last year's birthday party -- one year ago today - when we were so blessed to celebrate that lovely day with you. I know you felt all the love that surrounded you and it was all so wonderful that we were together to embrace and celebrate you on the occasion of your 75th birthday. You were taken far too soon from us and I still cannot believe you are gone - not a second goes by that you aren't in my heart and thoughts. I hope you are enjoying a piece of heavenly angel cake as sweet as you and send all the love my heart can hold. Missing you so desperately, your adoring daughter, Cindy
My Beautiful Mommy,
Mother's Day was so desperately lonely and empty this year. You were and always will be the most wonderful and perfect mother anyone could ever pray or hope for. I miss you so much! The hurt is still so raw and painful. You were always there for me, and I feel you now - when the sun shines on my face to warm me... the soft sweet breeze that soothes my soul, the gentle rain that brings us such beautiful flowers like the ones in your gardens. You are forever in my heart and I will cherish all you have given me to make me who I am. I love you so very very much, and miss you more every day.
My Dearest Mommy,
I can't bear this day today - our first Mother's Day without you. You are in my every thought and I hope you know how very, very much I miss you and want to talk to you and hug you and hear your laughter. I see you everywhere I go this Springtime; your face is in every flower, your laughter in every song and your love in every part of my being. I am the Mother I am because of your love and guidance. I hope that I am half the Mother to Aaron as you are to me. Not a day goes by that I don't pick up the phone to call you, or I think of something that I'd like to share with you. It's so hard being without you. Happy Mother's Day, my beautiful Mother; my heart aches to have you here. I love and miss you more than anything in the whole wide world.
Lots and lots of love and tears on this bittersweet Mommy's Day, One of your adoring twin "babies," Lori
My beautiful Mother - Today, on this first Mother's Day without you, there are no words to express the depth of sadness and emptiness in my heart today. I miss you so very desperately and just wish I could wrap my arms around you and never, ever let you go. You are the most amazing, beautiful, generous, patient and selfless Mother that has ever graced this world. You taught me to be the mother that I am today and I (and Crystal and Shawna) will be forever grateful to you for that. You were the bright light in my life and my very best friend and confidante. You were the shoulder I cried on and were always there for me no matter what the situation. I miss your beautiful smile, your laugh, your hugs and most of all, your love. My love for you knows no end and I will miss you for all eternity. With all the love in my heart and soul, your adoring daughter, Cindy
Mother, we miss you so very much. This Mother's day, just like everyday, is very, very hard without you being here to hug and talk to. This first Mother's day is extremely difficult for me to handle. I really, really want you back. I know you are here in spirit watching over all of us as you always did and continue to do. Mother, I want to wish you a Happy Mother's Day and I know in spirit you will be in New York tomorrow with Dad visiting Granny just as you always will.
Love you forever. Your adoring, one and only son, Dave
My Beautiful Mother...I just wanted to visit with you and tell you that not a single day goes by that I don't think of you and your beautiful smile. I miss you more and more with each passing day and my heart is forever broken. I know you are soaring on the wings of angels, that you are at peace and are surrounding us all with your warmth and love but not a minute goes by that I don't desperately wish I could just "wrap you around"(as Crystal says) in a big warm hug. I love you so much more than words can ever say...you will be with me in my heart and soul forever. With all my love, Cindy
Mother...I miss you so much. Hope your 2013 finds you happy, healthy and knowing that your family thinks about you every day with our undying love and devotion.
Your forever adoring daughter, Lori
Mother, I will always cherish and remember your last physical hug you gave me on Friday night. It was so intense and the extreme amount of love you have for us was in that hug saying to me you will never ever leave us that you will always be here no matter what. Christmas is around the corner and I know you will be there hugging each one of our hearts with the same intensity of love spiritually as you always showed us physically. I love you and Dad so very much. Your loving son always, forever,until we meet again, Dave
Missing you so much Nana....I love you more than words can say
Nana, I love you and miss you so much. You will always be an angel princess to me. Lots of love and hugs and kisses, Crystal
Jim - Words seem inadequate and can't express how saddened I was to hear of Mary's passing. I hope she is dancing on the wings of the angels!
Mother, I miss you so desperately -- you are in my every waking thought every minute of the day. The warmth of your amazing and beautiful smile is forever imprinted on my heart and soul. I love you more than I thought possible to love anyone and will continue to cherish your memory forever. All my love always...Cindy
Nana, I am very, very sad that you're gone, but you will always be in my heart. We had very nice times with each other and I just wish that I could hug you and see you one last time. I will never forget when you came to my school in 2nd grade for Grandparents Day and we had such a fun time. I hope you are safe in God's arms and watching over our family as we miss you terribly. You are in all our hearts and will be there forever. I miss you and love you with all my heart, Shawna
You are greatly missed already, Nana. I hope everyone enjoyed the Thanksgiving dinner you prepared for them. I love you.
To the entire Wingert Family
I was so sorry to hear of Mary's passing, and remain deeply saddened by this terrible loss. On this Thanksgiving day, I must also reflect and convey how grateful I am for the many memories I have of your dear mother, and the summers I spent with your wonderful family so many years ago.
It is my sincere hope that you will each find peace and comfort during this difficult time in knowing how broadly your dear mother made an impact on this world, and the countless cherished memories she has left behind.
I am proud to have been considered Mary's "third twin" for a period of my life, and will join you in never forgetting this remarkable lady.
Jim,family and friends: We are truly sorry for your loss. We will miss her greatly also. We enjoyed the cruise we took with you. The meetings at Daytona. Dinners at the Pub. I have met very FEW women with the grace, kindness, and great sense of humor that was Mary, and all those fun times we had, will ramain in our hearts till it's our time to join you.

We were privileged to have met Mary and were lucky to have known her gracious hospitality, and to have experienced her gentle beauty and keen wit. Her legacy is abundant and we are all blessed to know that it lives on in her wonderful family, who showed her their loving devotion in her illness and passing. There is no doubt that she knew that her blessings surrounded her, because she so freely gave them away. She was a lovely woman, and our sympathies go out to you in the days ahead. You will be in our thoughts and prayers. Love, Doris and Rob Ulsh and Family
To Jim and Family,
Our deepest condolences go out to you and yours. Although we only met your bride once at our 50th HS Reunion, I feel we knew her from all we've heard about her. There have been many prayers offered on your behalf and we know that our Lord opened his arms wide to receive your beloved Mary to his bosom. May that thought bring you comfort and peace during this stressful time. We will keep you in our prayers...
Mother, for 30+ years I have known you as a mother-in-law, but I have never thought of you as just the mother of my husband. I have always felt as though you were 'another mother' and you never made me feel any less than another daughter. Your warmth, kindness, unselfishness, and loving and giving soul have brought joy and peace to all of our hearts. The loss of your presence here on earth will be felt by many, but the grief your passing brings will be overshadowed by the joy of having known you. Mother, you are cherished by all, not only your family but your many dear friends. Until we see you again.
To Cindy and the rest of the Wingert family,
My deepest sympathies for your loss. I know that you will miss her greatly, but take comfort in the enduring positive impact she made in her 75 years on the lives of so many, whether as a daughter, sister, wife, mother, aunt, grandmother, cousin or friend.
To the Wingert Family: We are so sorry for your loss. Your mother certainly has touched a lot of hearts and souls. What a beautiful lady. I will always remember driving by each day and watching her work in her flower gardens. The heavens have opened up and accepted a beautiful angel.
Kathie and Family,
I am very sorry for your loss. I have very fond memories of your Mom and the time I spent at your house growing up. My thoughts are with you. Love, Katherine Brodisch Michetti
WE ALWAYS ENJOYED OUR TIMES TOGETHER-YOUR PARTY'S AND AT BICK AND KATHY'S AND AT THE OFC...AT CARLISLE BARRACKS..YOU WILL BE MISSED, MY DEAR..RIP MARY - WE LOVE YOU ..JESSIE AND RON
Mommy, the years passed way too quickly, but they were FULL of love! You are always and forever in our hearts, and some day we hope to see you in heaven and spend eternity with you! Jesus made the way to do that, and I believe you accepted His Precious gift of salvation, and His promises are secure! You will be GREATLY missed by all of us. I still cannot believe this is real; that this tragedy really took place. It is soo hard to know we won't see you in this life again; that we must wait until we meet again in heaven. I will hold onto the faith I have in Christ, the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things yet unseen. In that I can have hope to see you again!
In your life you showed each of us the meaning of commitment and dedicated loving kindness. You lived the very essence of love: giving up your wants, needs, and desires for those of others. I am proud to say I am your daughter. I love you with all of my heart and will miss you greatly! You are beautiful! Always were and always will be. I love you so much and I will be looking forward to seeing you again in the everafter!
My heartfelt sympathy goes out to Mary's family and all who knew her. She will truly be missed.
Our heartfelt condolences to Mary's family. She was an awesome lady who will be missed by all who knew her. May your sorrow ease with knowing she is in a much better place now, and may all your fond memories of your time with her comfort you till you are with her again.
To the Wingert family, especially Lori, Dave, and Aaron Ulsh,
Our thoughts and prayers are with you during this difficult time.
Mary was one of the most beautiful loving and classy women that I know. You will be greatly missed! Thoughts and prayers to her family and loved ones.
May your hearts soon be filled with wonderful memories of joyful times together as you celebrate a life well lived.
I am very sorry to hear of Mary's passing. I will keep her in my prayers. She used to bowl on Tuesday morning in the same league as I do. Again, my deepest sympathy.
My Beautiful Mother, There are not enough words to express all the love and admiration I hold for you. You are the epitome of what everyone should aspire to be -- the kindest, most loving, generous, beautiful, gentle, selfless and giving soul ever known. I miss you desperately -- you were taken much too soon from us and my heart aches more than I ever thought possible. I so looked forward to all of our nightly calls...you always took the time to listen or offer advice and for this I will be eternally grateful. You were a true and shining beacon of light in my life and I will forever cherish your beautiful memory. You are my inspiration and all that I could ever hope to be. I love you, I miss you and I will forever hold you in my heart. With all my love and gratitude, your adoring daughter - Cindy
I love you so much Nana.....I will miss you so very much, coming over to the house, talking, laughing...I can't fathom this is even real...I remember back to the days in elementary school how Papa and you would ALWAYS come on Grandparents Day…taking Kermit on vacation with you...the countless summers spent at your house…getting into your cherry tomato garden as a little girl and it never made you mad…You had the most amazing personality and the definition of a true woman…there is one thing for certain, you are the most beautiful and brightest angel God now has. I love you so much Nana. Forever and always.

Mommy, you have always been and will continue to be my inspiration. My guiding light that led me to the person I am. You taught me more than I could possibly list and your devotion to our family will always be in all of us and passed throughout our families. You are what I believe to be THE example of how one should be; Loving, kind, caring, great sense of humor, fun, adorable, beautiful inside and out. I will dearly miss you, everything about you. I will miss calling you just to talk. I will honor you by living my life to the best I can, being as much like you as possible (but in my eyes, no one can hold a candle to you and your shoes are way too big for anyone to fill.) I refuse to say good bye but rather I will see you later. You will forever be in my every day thoughts and my heart of hearts. I love you more than words or actions could ever express, so until I see you again Mother, I know you are an angel of all angels.
~Love and adoring you always, Kathie
I will remember cousin, Mary, as a concerned, loving daughter of Aunt Mary, and a wonderful wife to Jim. She was a gracious hostess of the Langdon Family reunion and was happy to provide a comfortable bed, enjoyable meal time, and lively, interesting conversation for family members passing through, on summer trips, north or south.
Mommy, we love you more than words can say. We miss you and want to talk to you and tell you about the outpouring of love from everyone who knew you. You will always be our Rock, our Inspiration, our first Greatest Love and you will always be with us. We miss you, Mommy, and will treasure every day we had with you until we see you again. With all our love and devotion, Your Twins
Mother, you will always be the light of our lives. You and Dad have taught us family values and love that we will pass down to our children and our children's children. We know you are in the hearts of everyone whoever knew you or even met you. Mother, you will always be with us. Your passion for life, living, and love has been bestowed upon all of us. Mother, you will be in our hearts forever and be with us in everything we do. Now the angels in Heaven are the lucky ones to share your presence.
Your Loving son, Dave
