I have regretted doing this for the past five months. Its hard to say goodbye so I will just say save a spot for me. You have been the best sister that any brother could ask for, now I miss your phone calls when we haven't spoken for a while and I miss meals and coffee time terribly. What some folks don't understand is that I spent more time with you than I did with Mom that why my heart is so broken. you are loved and will be missed greatly. Thank you for all your prayers and support,say hi...

Me and my mom, our last photo together

Mom today makes five months that you've been away... As I moved through the house today - you are alive within our hearts and in your momentos... Missing you something awful!

Cousin Racheal,

Although I did not get the chance to come and say goodbye to you, you were in my prayers. I know that you are now in God's arms.

Aunt Racheal...
I feel honored to have met you this past year. You made an impression on me with your kindness, when Liz's mom was in the hospital. I know it made Margie feel so loved and cared for by your presence. For myself, your presence and tender smile made me feel at home and part of the family. Thank you, sweet lady. Prayers and love are being sent from so many of us.

Rach, we're still numb at your passing and I suppose it will take quite a while for it to sink in. You will be missed more than you ever imagined! Our lives will never be the same without you and only time will will replace the tears with smiles of memories of you. I'm sue you've already embraced the Lord and you visited with Elias, Dad, Mom, Sam and all of your friends. It won't be long when we'll all be joining you. Until then love you always and forever.

Debbie & Family: Below is a poem I read at my grandmothers service and I read it often when I think of her. I want to share it with you...may it bring you comfort.

Death is Nothing at All

Death is nothing at all.
I have only slipped away to the next room.
I am I and you are you.
Whatever we were to each other,
That, we still are.

Call me by my old familiar name.
Speak to me in the easy way
which you always used....

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...

Forever will your memory live in my heart.
may you rejoice in the presence of the Lord.
With the Lords help I will see you and my pastor (Elias)again. May the Lord bless your loving family.
