Not sure what to say?

Today I looked at your picture on my desk and while a tear formerd a smile was there too. Jesus has you now. Save me a seat up there and we'll dance in eternity together.
Another one of your great grandchildren will soon enter our life and I can almost bet it will be a red head. You live on through us all. As long a I'm living, my Mommy forever you'll be.

As time goes on I still cant believe you are no longer here with us. They say times heals all but the pain is still so deep. Always know Momma that we all miss you so much.
Looking back growing up, I wish that things had been better for you. That you wont had to work so hard just to make end meet.
You will always be missed and loved so much by all of us.
Hope that heaven is filled with "Joy" and happiness.
Love ya Jewell Box ..

Mom, at this moment a month ago we said goodbye. I am not dealing with this well because I miss you so deeply. I know you are in God's care and that is so comforting but this hole in my heart yearns to talk with you again. You are always my Mommy- forever love!

With all my love

Tomorrow will be one month since you left us and it feels like forever.
There have been so many times that I have almost dialed your number wanting to let you know what is going on in my life and Samantha's (planting flowers, taking Sam to the doctor or just talking about the local gossip)
I have put a bird feeder out in my back yard facing the lake in your memory and hoping that I have a few of the type of beautiful birds you had when you looked at your bedroom window)

It has been 24 days. 16 hours and 20 minutes since we said goodbye. The pain isn't letting up and I miss you so much Mama. I know you are with Jesus and He spared you from more suffering but i selfishly wasn't ready to say goodbye. Oh I miss you terribly. Thank you Mom for being the leader, the Mom and Dad both, the encourager, the one who will forever be in my heart. As long as in living my Mommy you'll be......until we meet again. God thank you for watching over her.

Peggy I know God will give you peace and the hope that one day you will see your Mom again. She is Home now and through God's Son Jesus our homecoming will be so much more blessed one day. Prayers for you and all the family.

To the Testerman Family: My prayers and deepest condolences are with you. No one can take the place of a mother's love and her touch in our lives. Each of you in your uniqueness and accomplishments are a testimony to her excellence in life. Her legacy lives on in and through you.

Momma- you raised us to be strong, confident, faithful, ethical, compassionate and courageous. We have flown from the nest and your legacy lives on through us. While we stand tall we are weak with emptiness and were not ready to let u go. Jesus take care of Mamma! Forever Love!
