    We will miss you nana, but we will keep your lessons and memories alive – as you always said you are only doing something right if you learn something new every day!

    Dearest Mom,
    I am so glad you are at peace, your brace is off and you are free from pain. I will miss our little chats,playing cards, baking cookies and cooking together, having coffee at Dana Point and all the special times of love and laughter of being together with Ken, Jen and Kim.
    I am so blessed to be your daughter. I will love you forever. I know you will continue to watch over us from above.
    Love you and miss you with a smile from my heart, Sharon

    Dear Mom, I am so glad we had such a special relationship. I was your SON and you were my MOM , I was so lucky in that way. I am so happy you decided to move west in 1987 and enjoy the family and the Calfornia life style.
    I love you
    Your Son Ken
