Not sure what to say?

Bradey and Barbara Messer

Dear Grandma, Now that you have left us there is an empty place in our hearts. We will always remember your smiling face, and the love you shared with everyone you met. You are now free of all pain and are with Jack now. I'm sure he was there to greet you with open arms, ready to take you to see God and your new home. I hope you gave to him a big kiss and hug from me and told him how Caytlin is growing and how proud he would be of his Grandson Bradey. One day I will see him and you...

May the love of friends and family carry you through your grief.

In My Pocket

I have memories in my pocket.
They rattle among the change.

My memories of you are treasures I carry wherever I go.

They are stored in bits and pieces, parts of a beautiful whole
They give me comfort when I think I am alone.

Yes, I have memories in my pocket, like so much other stuff I keep there.

But of all the treasures I have, it's the memories of you that are the most precious.

By Lamaretta Simmons

May your hearts soon be filled with wonderful memories of joyful times together as you celebrate a life well lived.
