I love you so much Aunt Martha and know you are truly happy to be rejoined with Judy and Vickie and all our heavenly family. Tell Mom I love and miss her so very much and know I will join you one day when my journey is over here. In the meantime you live within my heart. I can feel your ever loving presence. Your niece Peggy
I was blessed in this life to have had the miracle of having two mothers. You gave yourself and everything in you to always try to make the world and all of the people in it a better place. There isn’t a day that goes by without thinking about you and how much I love you and miss you being here. All you have ever worried about is making sure that all of your kids are okay and can have a good life. You have truely been the wind beneath our wings. You are always going to be in my heart and in my life. I will never forget you or the impression you’ve left on me and my life. I couldn’t have asked for better mothers to have raised me and loved me so very much. I only wish that you could still be here to share all of the future memories with us but I know that if there is a heaven that you will be looking down on us all and be there with us every step of the way. I will always love you and miss you ‘with all my heart’. <3
