Not sure what to say?

Dear Marianna,

I want you to know that I think of Grace so often and miss her dearly. Her friendship was everything to me during a very difficult time. She is my forever friend. Love to you and your family during this Holiday Season. Lynn

Hi Gracie. I have missed you tremendously this past 5 years and now as I write you, your father, Lloyd has passed away, he is dearly missed. We had a simple graveside service and a Celebration of life gathering at his favorite bar. I'm sure he would have been pleased. His sister Joyce, husband Marvin several nieces and nephew also several grandchildren, other family members and many friends were present to celebrate his life. I know you already know all of this but saying it makes it so,...

Thinking of you on this and every other day! Sending you love.

I was so saddened when I learned of Grace's passing. My wife, Sharon, and I share a grandson with Grace (Jordan Pifer). I only met Grace a few times, but I remember her as a vibrant, fun person to be around. I can tell by the many messages left here, that she touched the lives of many in a special way. Karl

Hi Gracie. Just wishing you a Happy Birthday and wish you could have been here to celebrate. We Went to the Preakness race hoping the horse Orb would win his second race to be in line to win the Triple Crown but he lost. I remember how much fun we had at the races. Dad finally moved back to IA., I hope he will be happier. I love you Grace and miss you so much.


Happy Birthday Mom. We love you so very much!

Hi Mom,
Its been a long sad year. I miss you everyday. I still sometimes think I can call you and you'll be there or I find myself talking as if you were right there with me. The kids miss you, we all miss you and love you.
You are always in my thoughts. And even in my dreams. I can still hear your infectious laugh. I miss having you come get massages from me. I always looked forward to my Mom coming in to my work. You were sapposed to relax, but we just chit chatted the entire...

I still have a hard time believing you are gone. You are missed greatly by all who knew you, especially your Mom. I know you are ever present in the lives of your family and watching over your grandchildren and children. We will all see you one day. Rhonda
