    For the sparkle in your eye and the deep devotion in your heart.

    1. Mom, so many beautiful memories over the years. I can’t thank you for all you’ve done for me and Zach and Xander. We love and miss you so very much. You were a beautiful mother, grandmother and person outside and in. Thank you for being the most wonderful mother a daughter could ever ask for. You taught me so much about motherhood and life. You have past on your faith, love, and to do for others. I hope I continue to make you proud. I love you. Rest In Peace.
      All my love,
      Your daughter,

  4. Judith & John, I am so sorry to hear of your Mom’s passing. I just came across her obituary today. I’m one of your Mom’s first cousins.
    I haven’t seen your Mom in years, but I have many good memories of her. I remember the time we visited Patsy & Jack & stayed at their home for dinner. She made meatloaf & baked potatoes & her meatloaf was delicious! It was so good, I remember it to this day!
    Another memory is the time when my Mom needed surgery & Patsy, being a nurse, went to the hospital with her & nursed her back to health. She was a very giving person & we were very grateful.
    I’m sure her beautiful green eyes are looking down on you from heaven & that she misses you, but I’m also sure that she’s happy to be with Jack again. I’ll keep them both in my prayers & also inform my brother & cousin Dorothy of her passing.
    Your Cousin, Susan
