Not sure what to say?

Ms. Boyd, It seems as if yesterday that we were sitting at the table playing uno, sipping on tea, and laughing about some poor soul! We had our good times, and it was a real pleasure getting to know you personally, the inside person, the humorous side of you. It was very difficult watching you endure the sickness that you went through as you struggled to recover from your illness. We as humans don`t know why things such as cancer has to occur to great people like yourself, but thats in God`s...

i hear that its supposed to get easier as time goes by, but i don't think that's true. i miss you so much more each day. your were, and still are my hero, and i thank God he blessed me by letting you be in my life. its especially hard waking up in our room, and you aren't laying right there beside me. there has been so many things i have wanted to tell you, and i just miss your conversations in general. you would have been so proud of me at graduation, but i know you were looking down on me,...

Memaw,
I can't believe its been over 7 months since you've been gone. It never gets easy, but we constantly remind ourselves that you're in a much better place. Greg and I miss you so much and think about you every single day. Things are looking up for us and we've had so many things happen that we haven't wanted to share with you. Sometimes without thinking one of us will pick up the phone to call you and then reality sets in. You are missed more than words can describe and I'm so...

Mama,
Every day gets harder without you!I know you would want me to focus on my life and the girls, but i am so lost in this world without you, my best friend. I know you are in a better place with your loved ones and the cancer is gone from your body and you are beyond happy, and for those reasons i wouldnt wish you back.
I go to sleep thinking of you and i wake up thinking of you. you made such an impact in my life and it is so hard to figure out how to continue without you.I miss...

Memaw,
You're on my mind today more than usual. I woke up thinking about you and have been crying off and on all day. I miss you so much and wish more than anything I could hear your sweet voice or hold your hand one more time. We all try to remind ourselves that you're in a much better place and with your parents and Wink...that makes us smile, but it's still hard without you here. I love you so much and can't wait until we meet again...Love Always

Mema... its hard not seeing that beautiful smile every day. But it was so easy to love you because you always welcomed me into your heart and showed me love and treated me like i was one of your own kids. I miss the lil joy rides you christy and i would take on the mountains. I know your in a better place and your very happy and pain free. I wish I could see you one day but if the good Lords willing I will. Id love to hug you and hold your soft hands and feel that warm feeling that I fealt...

Memaw,
It's been almost 2 months and you're missed more and more each and every day. The holidays were very sad this year and it just felt so lonley without you here. Greg and I both have a memory of you everyday and sometimes it makes us cry while other times we're laughing so hard. You were an amazing woman and even though I'm always going to wish I had more time with you, I'm so very grateful for the few months we had together. You introduced me to new words that I'll never forget...

You are the most amazing woman Ive ever known and Im so greatfull to have the 6yrs of being a part of your family.
