  3. To Mr. Rodgers, Mark and Vicky:

    It is always difficult to lose a loved one, and even when there has been sickness, we still are not ready to say goodbye. May God help you through these sad times, and I hope you know that there are many people praying for all of you.
    It was a blessing that Mrs. Rodgers was taken as quickly as she was. Keep that at the front of your mind as you face the difficult times ahead.
    My love to all of you.
    Cheryl

  6. Hi Mom,

    It’s been 10 years since you left us. You were the best Mother ever. Too bad I wasn’t always the best daughter.

    I can still hear your voice exclaiming my name when you found out it was me calling on the phone all those years ago. You never failed to make me feel special when it really you who was so special.

    You are always in my thoughts and my heart.

    I love you and miss you so…!
