Ashley Baier (Granddaugher)

Hey gram, I just wanted to let you know that you'll be VERY sadly missed. You are one person whom I NEVER thought I'd lose and it's so very hard. You and I were so close. You are/were such a BIG hearted woman and would do anything for anyone. I just can't believe this. My heart is so saddened but I know that you're in a better place. I told you I'd be by your side the whole time and I was. I'll miss you so VERY much gram. I love you!


Jamie and Gay, Each time we lose someone in our family it hurts but we (ALL) get thru it cause it makes us stronger we are family. I could never never picked a better family myself,so I thank God for the one he gave me i was blessed to have had a two women in my life mom and Edie .

Gram, we miss you so much! I regret not being as close to you as I could have been but I'm glad I had you in my family and in my life. The family will never be the same without you around. You were the only one that kept us all so close and I hope that we can still be together without your guidance but it's going to be hard. I don't want to even face family reunions without you. We went to your house today to go through pictures and things and it just wasn't the same without you there. It just still seems so unreal and I don't want to believe it. The last of your time on earth was so hard to bear but the memories that you've left us with will last the rest of our lives. It seems like all the time we spend with our loved ones is taken for granted and you never think that anything like this could happen. I'm going to leave you with this gram, everyone that you've met you hold a special place in our lives and I know you feel that you were blessed with our wonderful family but we were the ones that were truely blessed. I'll love you forever and your memory will go on forever....

Jamie Kline (Son)

Mom, It is now just a day since you left us and I miss you so much my heart is in so much pain, We have got through hard times before but this is the hardest time I have ever been through and not sure I am going to get through this one so easy, When I was talking to you before you passed I hope you heard me and forgave me for not respecting your wishes, I seen all the pain you were in and just could not see you go through any more it just tore my heart out watching the pain you went through and I just couldn't watch you suffer anymore I pray and hope I made the right decisions and I pray and hope you forgive me, I could never watch you go through that pain and suffering again, I was so lucky to have had a mother like you you were the best mother anyone could ever ask for and I hope I was as good of son as you were a mother. You were there to bring me into this world and I was so glad that I had the chance to be there holding and comforting you when you left this world. I will always love you so very very much and will never ever forget you. Your Loving Son Jamie

Janet (Daughter)

Mom, I will miss you sooo very much. I will always remember you and all that you done for me. You tought me to be the strong woman that I am, to raise my children alone and teach them right from wrong. Because of your strength, I raised 2 beautiful children that I am so very proud of as I know you were. I never thought I would have to say goodbye to you, but here we are.... you and I had precious times and moments and memories that I will always cherish, Thank you for your love. You will live forever In my heart and memories. Rest In peace untill we meet again. Love always Janet

James and Family, I am so sorry for your loss. It's so hard to understand why people are taken from us, but find comfort in knowing you were a special part of their life. Please hold on to your memories, and let them guide you during this time of sadness. Edie is not alone.....and neither are you!

Diane Shawley

Jamie/Gay and Family I would like to express my deepest sympathy in the loss of your Mother. I know how difficult it is to lose someone so special. I'm sure you will have special memories that you will treasure and keep close to your heart. I know you have family and friends you can reach out to, and I want you to know you can always count on me for support.

Ashley Baier (Granddaughter)

Hey gram, it's Ashley stopping by again. I just feel that this is a good place for me to come talk to you and let you know what's all going on in life. Well it's almost Christmas gram, less than a week away. I am missing you like something crazy tonight. I sit here and look around my living room of all of the memories I have with you. I am so glad that I have so many of us. I just miss you so very much gram. It's going to be so hard on all of us on Christmas Eve this year, dad especially I believe. He misses you so very much gram and I know it. You know what though? I have seen so much of you in him recently. He is SO big hearted just like you were. He is a great father. He's doing very well with the garage too! But I'm sure you already know this. You're probably watching over him every day. I just so don't want to walk into mom and dads this year and not see you sitting there in dads computer chair with a huge smile on your face. That is one memory that I will never lose. That big smile you always wore. Boy gram it is so hard. I just want to let you know that you are still so very sadly missed and loved. Hopefully you are up in heaven getting around for christmas with the rest of our family and friends up there. I miss you terribly and love you gram. Merry Christmas!!


Hi gram. It's me again. It's one day after my birthday. I'm 26 now. Can you believe it? I'm getting old. I sadly missed this year you calling and singing happy birthday to me. I know you were watching over me though and celebrating up there! I know you were watching over dad right now too. He went back to be tested for cancer again and THANK GOSH, he is cancer free! That is one person I don't think I could live without either. He still misses you so much too gram. You can just see it in him sometimes. Well all miss you though. But I was just thinking of you so I got on to talk. I will come back to chat another time! I love you gram!


Well gram, tomorrow will be 3 years that you have been taken from us. Not a day goes by that I don't think about you or miss you! You are still very much loved and missed by many! I love you gram!

Hi Gram. Just me stoppin in again. Here we are another year since you were taken from us. Not a day goes by that I don't think of you! I miss you so much!! Things just aint the same without you! As you know Devin was just recently taken from us also. Hit me pretty hard! It's so weird watching someone grow from the time they were born til the time they are taken from us. Just brought, and still brings, back memories where it was always me, you, mike, and devin! Now theres me and Mike! I'm trying to stay as close to him as I can. In a couple days you guys will be up there celebrating Devin's 18th birthday! Hope it's a good one up there! I just wish I could have you back just for one more day so we could catch up and just sit around and watch movies all day long with our popcorn!! I miss nights like that! I miss you gram. I just want you to know that you are still very much loved and missed!! I will see you again one day gram! I love you so very much!
