Not sure what to say?

My nana was a wonderful woman and she was the best nana in the whole world. I really miss her but I know she is in a great place."I love you nana and I really miss you because you are the best nana in the world." and most of all she was the nicest woman I new.

There still isn't a day that I don't think of you. I will always remember you as the one who took us to church. I still can see your hands raised in worship and now you walk with your savior. You always said I would find my friends in church, and you were right. Becouse of you I am now married to my best friend. Thank you mum for being there through the good times and the bad ones. I love you, miss you and look forward to that day when we will all meet again.

It still doesn't seem real that you left this world two weeks ago today Mum. I miss you & love you and even though your enjoying your heavenly reward I still wish you "Sweet Dreams" each night.

I am a co-working of Al's and just want to say how sorry I am for your loss.

My thoughts and prayers are with you, Arthur, and family as you go through this difficult time. I didn't know Ruth very well as our family only visited every few years from Ontario but she was always kind and thoughtful. So many times on these family vacations I was left alone while my brothers had the boys we were visiting to play with. Ruth would try to include me somehow whether it was asking Diane to teach me to crochet or Larry to give me a ride on his motorcycle. She was a special lady.

Dear Aunt Ruth, You were such a special lady to me. Although we never lived close enough to visit very often, I have a few wonderful memories of you. When I was just a little girl, I remember Mum & Dad bringing us to visit you & Arthur, Larry, Diane, Randy & Allison in the little trailer in Mapleton, Me. You usually had an apron on and were cooking something good. You always had that smile on your face and made us feel welcome. Then we got to catch up again a few years ago...

My condolences to Uncle Arthur and all the family. My love and prayers will be with you. I remember all the times My mom and dad brought me over to your house up on the hill in Canada, right across the border. I used to have so much fun. You were so loving and caring. We never seen each other for a quite a while after you moved, But the Lord answered my prayer I finally got to see you again. For this, I will always be so ever grateful . We said good bye down here but we will meet again and...

Your Mum was such a beautiful lady. My brother and I always enjoyed talking to her when we visited my aunt, Eileen Parker, at Stillwater. My prayers and sympathy to all your family.

I will always remember Aunt Ruthie's ready smile and merry laughter. Lots of great memories spent in her home on school vacations and holidays. She and Mum (Bona) had a very special relationship that only sisters can have. They are now laughing and singing together in the presence of our Savior. She's probably playing her accordion and Mum the piano. Cherish your memories of her and allow them to comfort you in the days to come. With Lots of Love, Paula (and Calvin)
