Memories Timeline


  1. I love you Grammie. I will always remember the good times at your house – making the TCBY runs (fat free, sugar free!), all the Chinese take-outs and DiCarlos Pizza! I also remember when you and Pappap came to Florida and we were driving around, Pappap said “The Mission” (the Mission Inn) and you hit him on the head and said “that’s not the Mission you big dummy” and he was right! I will miss you and always cherish the good times! I love you Grammie!

  2. Kathleen and Donnie, Please know that you and your entire family will be in my thoughts and prayers. I know how difficult it is to lose one’s mom, especially when she has been living with you. As trite as it may sound–hold on to the good memories and someday, when you least expect it, your heart will remember and smile. Love, hugs and prayers,

  3. Kathleen and Donnie, Please know that you are in my heart and prayers right now. I know that you will get through this with strength and grace. I have a lot of good memories of your mom and how funny she was–and I know that you will always cherish your special memories of her as well. I wish I could be there for you–but too much distance–but please know that I am hugging you close to my heart right now. Love, Chris

  4. Donny and Kathline, We are so sorry for your loss. We didn’t find out until late Thurs.or we would have been there.If there is anything at all you need, just call. Joe and steph
