  1. Dear Dick
    I just saw where Lauraine has gone to heaven. I know you have fond memories of so many years together. I can truly sympathize with you I have never stopped missing Steve. You have my deepest sympathy.

  2. Mom, we miss you deeply, but know you are no longer suffering. We will make sure Dad is taken care of. You taught us about life and love and were the greatest mom, grandmother and great grandma. You will always be in my heart. Love you and see you some day.

  3. Grammie b, I miss you dearly I’m glad you are at peace and are not suffering any longer. We will make sure grandpas taken care of. I’ll miss you, I love you to the moon and back.

  4. Grammie, we miss you so much. You were always more of a second Mom to me, than a Mother-in law. For that, I will be eternally grateful. I will love you always!! You never knew a stranger, everyone was welcome at your house. They also usually ended up sharing a meal with the family. Your love and kindness will never be forgotten. Your fight is over; there will be no more pain or suffering in heaven. We love you.

  5. Grammie,

    We all love you SO SO much. You will be missed so much, but we know you’re in heaven with Timmie watching over all of us. Thank you for being a wonderful Grandma.
    love you always,

  6. I’ll never forget all of the fun times we have shared together, or your famous secret recipe spaghettios, making cookies together, and teaching us how to cook some of your favorite foods. I remember you reading to us when we were little kids and then you reading to my kids. You were always such a great grandma and you will me missed everyday. We all love you so, so much. Until we meet again,

  7. Dear Richard,
    Our deepest condolences to you and your family as you learn to cope with the loss of your mom. Upon reading about her, it seems she was quite the lady. Our thoughts and prayers are with you during this difficult transition.

  8. Dear Uncle Dick and family,

    You are all in our hearts and prayers for peace and comfort. What an amazing lady Aunt Ree was, I will forever cherish my memories of her. She was my God Mother, and truly a “Proverbs 31 Woman”. “She loved”….. are the words in my heart to best describe her life. She so loved her family, she so loved God and she never judged, never said bad things or never looked at things from a negative perceptive. Praising God that her pain and battle with cancer are over and knowing she is rejoicing in Heaven with God. What an honor to have had such a
    beautiful woman in our lives and now to carry on with her passion of unity and love tucked in our hearts forever. Love to all. Linda and John

  9. Ms.B You were the sweetest and most kind person I have ever known..I never felt like a daughter in law but more like a daughter…you were better to me than my own mom and that will always mean so much to me..I cherish every memory I have of time spent with you.. Thank you for being a wonderful grandmother to Dallas…Thank you for your unconditional love…I love you and I’m glad you are at peace now 💜 Melissa
