Memories Timeline


  1. Been a few years… Still missing you. Now my grandfather is dying and I just feel like I’ve been robbed of both of you. Shouldn’t my kids know atleast a little of you guys? But it seems that they’ll only know what I tell them of you. Which will be wonderful things. I still think about you a lot. I’ll love you always.

  2. I’ve written in here already, but I guess you can’t ever feel like you’ve said enough. It’s been about 9 months now. They say that time heals pain, but how and when does it start? I think about her everyday, and wonder why I didn’t go see her more or call more. I remember her fried apple pies. I wish I had the chance to eat just one more with her. I miss her. I dont think I’ll ever stop.

  3. Alma was my Nana. I will always remember her for the good times and the wonderful person she was. She will live on forever in the hearts of her family members and loved ones. We miss you but we know you’re in a better place. I find comfort knowing she will be at the gates to meet me or my loved ones.
    Until we meet again-My love always.

  4. I love you, Alma…yesterday, today, and for all tomarrows…

  5. My memories are of sitting @wrestling matches eating a hot dog & fussing @the bad wrestler for hurting the good wrestler & you laughing about it. Also, going to Denny’s restaraunt on Patton Ave to meet your dates, giving me my first taste of wine, watching you put your make-up on in the bathroom mirror @ Papaw’s house to go meet your date. And loving you I will never stop; for you will always be on my mind & in my heart my Alma Christine. The world will be lonely without you but I know your in God’s hands now. Mamaw on the right side & Papaw on the left & baby boy @ your feet; One day I with my son will be there & we will embrace once again on that golden shore.

  8. i would just like to say what a good friend and person alma was to me i knew her for years she was like a grandmother to me now its hard to believe shes gone from us she was loved by everyone and will never be forgotten

  9. Today the house sold,and I cant help but feel like the last major part of you is gone. I keep crying and I dont know why. The important part left a year ago. The house is only materialistic. But it was your house. And in a year, you wont even know you ever lived here by looking at the house. But I’ll always have memories of you in the house. But with you already gone, it seems like the house was the best thing to you. And now its gone. I know youll always be in my heart. And your traits that your family picked up will always remain. The good and the bad. I miss you and I’ll keep missing you, until one day I join you. But until then- You’re in my heart

  10. It has been 8 years now since you went home. You are still in all of our thought ans memory we miss you i wish you was here to see all your great grand kids and you everything i have done to make you pride.
