Dear Krackers (and your entire family),
Don't know why things go the way they do sometimes ... just know that you are in my thoughts and prayers. May the Lord bless you and comfort you through the beautiful memories of your Moma. It's never easy to give them up -- I know! I didn't know your Mom personally, but I know she raised some awesome kids ... you being my favorite ... just don't tell the others!-- that's what my daddy used to tell his grandchildren :0)
Hang in there.
Love ya Hon,

Dear Larry, Yvonne, Wallace & Kevin:
My fondest memories of your beloved mom were her taking "us boys" to Sunday School, and her sharing coffee and laughter with my parents. Also, my sister Judy shared affections with her for Chihauhau puppies, adopting more than one from Eulalia. Your mother was proud of you as her children, knowing that you were on the right track with the Lord. Please take comfort that she is with the Lord Jesus now.
