Dear Gregg and Family,

Know that your Mother has left a legacy that no one can dispute! She along with your father has raised strong, even-tempted, and gracious young men. As long as we keep her memory...her legacy lives.

Mother's Love

A Mother's Love is more than the uttered words "I Love You" beyond actions or deeds. There are no limits of giving, insurmountable moments of understanding.

A Mother's Love gives you wings to soar, unleashing your abilities to be unique, powerful and boldly confident.

A Mother's Love is like gazing into the stars and seeing your dreams unfolding, believes when you doubt, a pillar to lean on for strength.

A Mother's Love is a gift from God, life giving, forever present, in an out of season, priceless beyond measure.

A Mother's love is gracious, kind, honest and true. Ms Alberta your love was a steady beacon to the lives you impacted. We will miss your earthly presence but will hold you deep in our hearts looking to the heavens and forever cherish your Mother's Love!

A beautiful woman lived a beautiful life, and now a beautiful reward to walk the beautiful streets of gold as she approaches the 12 gates to that beautiful city. Walk tall Mrs. Alberta.

Miss Alberta - In God's Hands
Do Not Stand At My Grave And Weep

Do not stand at my grave and weep;
I am not there; I do not sleep.
I am a thousand winds that blow.
I am the diamond glints on snow.
I am the sun on ripened grain.
I am the gentle autumn rain.
When you awaken in the morning's hush,
I am the swift uplifting rush
Of quiet birds in circled flight.
I am the soft stars that shine at night.
Do not stand at my grave and cry;
I am not there; I did not die.

- Mary Elizabeth Frye - 1932

Miss Alberta ... You're Very Much Alive!

All my love ... Greg :)
