My Beautiful Mother,

Thank you for all the special ways you showed us your love, understanding and eternal patience. You will be deeply missed leaving a unfillable hole in our hearts.

Our lives will go on without your presence but your spirit will be all around, filling us with your loving light.

Soar high my sweet mother, pain free in God's house with my husband and son.

As Gavin would say, Nan is with Pap and Daddy in heaven with Jesus. I LOVE AND MISS YOU ALL.

You were an incredible influence in my life for many years, and for that, I am eternally thankful. You loved us, laughed with us, helped me plan my wedding, shared laughs with us, played cards with us and so much more. Thank you for everything you did to shape my life and be the good womanly-influence I so desperately needed. I've always loved you as a Mom, and I hope over the years you understood that. Love and miss you. Tess

Mary Alice, Ken and family
