Not sure what to say?

Not a day goes by that I don't think about you and miss you. I look at flowers and think of your green thumb spring makes me smile more now. I have kept a violet alive these last few years and I have been proud of that and I know you would too. I love you and miss you. The kids do too but I know that this always has to happen and we will one day see each other again!!! Rest in Peace Grammy!!

I miss you so much and the girls do too! Ari drew you a picture and I wish so much that she could give it to you!! I love you so much and thank you for looking over us from above!

I miss you so much and wish so much that you were still here with us but I know one day I will see you again. Until then I love you and think about you all the time! Thank you for watching over me and my family from above.

Betsy and Larry, we all are saddened to hear of the passing of your mother. I remember her exactly the way you have described her. She was always a close friend of our mother's, remembering those bridge games they played so often. Our thoughts and prayers are with you all. The Smittle Family

Betsy, Jamie, and Heather, I extend my sincerest condolences to you and the entire family. I pray that the Lord gives you all the comfort and strength you will need during this time.

Grammy I will always love you and never forget about you! You will be so missed but I will never forget about the memories that I have with you from weekend bike rides to your house to staying with you after school. I know you are in a better place now and no longer in pain. I wish I never had to say good-bye to you but one day I will see you again until then you can look down from heaven and watch me teach my girls the things you taught me. I LOVE YOU GRAMMY!!!!!!!!!
