Not sure what to say?

Mom, you are gone from our lives physically but not from our hearts. You will always remain in my heart and the memories of our good times shared will be forever with me. Love you mom, Paula

Sunshine, it's been over a month. We have painted the whole inside of the house and you would love it. I miss coming for coffee and chatting with you. Never thought I would say this but I miss doing your medicine,taking you to the doctor and just laughing as we ride around. I love you mom and MISS you so very much. Wish you could come back. But I know the Lord, Ray and Eddie are having a great time catching up on good times. Tell them Hi. You are forever in my thoughts.

Mom you are truly missed. There is not a day that goes by that I don't pick up the phone to call you and then I remember. I love you so much. Mom, I am trying to remember the good times. Pauline Burton, VA

In memory of Ruby P Thornton. The most loving and gracious grandmother.

Gramma you were such a huge part of my life. Thank you for being by my side every day these last 15 years and in my life over the last 22. You are the strongest, most resilient person I know and am so proud to have you as my gramma. I love you to the moon and back. I'm gonna miss our crazy face competitions and our muscle flexes hah! Love you and can't wait to see you greet me at those gates one day!

For part of us went with you
The day you left your home.

I will truly miss my grandmother! I know she is watching over me and Wyatt and I know he has an amazing angel watching over him

Your faith in the Lord Jesus sustained you; and your smile lighten our hearts each time we visited you. It was an honor to have known you and to be welcomed into your lovely home. Your battle was difficult, but your dependence on the Lord gave you the ultimate victory. Heaven's gain, is our lost. Wish there were more people like you in the world. Sincerely, Chaplain R. L. Smith, Serenity Premier Hospice. P.S. as the olden spiritual says, "when you get to heaven save a seat for...
