Oh Mommy.... I am so sad now... I loved you with my entire being. I miss you so much and long to hear your voice. You were a beautiful woman inside and out. No words can describe just what you mean to me. You're the greatest mother and the kindest soul. I'm sorry I didn't come and see you at the final goodbye. I just couldn't bring myself to go. I was with you when you left this earth and I am so thankful for that. Man, I miss you and I love you more than anything...
I love you so much my gorgeous momma. I hope you know how loved, cherished, and appreciated you are. There were so many people at your service. It was super beautiful and fancy like you would like. I know you loved it looking down on it. I would say rest easy, but I know you're up in Heaven running around enjoying being pain free with Papaw and Aunt Sissy. We will all be together soon though because this life is but a vapor that only appears for a little time and the vanishes. Until I see you again mommy, I love you!
The sweetest woman EVER! Always like a second mother to me. She always greeted me with a smile, an open heart and a hug! She will be missed .
I am so very sorry for your loss. Cheryl was a wonderful person. We were coworkers at KCR. She was always so kind and helpful, I wasn't in the office often, but I always enjoyed catching up with her when I did see her. She always had pictures of her family on her desk, and I she loved talking about her loved ones. She will be greatly missed. Rest in peace Cheryl, you left us way too soon.
My beautiful Sister, no words will ever be said to say how much you meant to me, or how lost I already am without you! Holding you close in my heart until reunited in heaven!
Cheryl always had a beautiful smile. She is one who I could count on. She was a beautiful woman inside and out. She was a very dear friend of mine. I will truly miss her. God must have something special for you. RIP my friend.
