I was so shocked and saddened to learn of your dear Mama's passing. What a wonderful lady she was! Truly one of the happiest and most outgoing people I have met over my 32 years of teaching in the Canisteo & Canisteo-Greenwood district. I thoroughly enjoyed working with her as our past BOE president and board member; but most of all as your mom. She truly loved you with all her heart and soul!! I knew she had moved to live closer to you and your son; and she had shared with me the last time I saw her at Texas Cafe' just how happy she was to be doing that. May ALL the wonderful and loving memories you have of your mom bring you peace and comfort during this difficult time. And may those memories continue to give you strength and peace as you carry on without her. Heaven has surely gained a special, lively, and loving angel!
All my love,
There are no words to express how much love I have for you. You are my best friend, my rock and the bravest person I have ever met. You took everything in stride and always pushed through. Always smiling and always willing to do for others before doing for yourself. You and Dad gave me a life that people only dream of and I will forever be greatful to you both. Even though I was adopted it was never like that for me, You and Dad were and will forever be the best parents a girl could ask for. Yes you were taken way too soon but as Grandma Ding Dong always said, God has a path for each of us. I guess God had a great need for another Angel in Heaven. I am so thankful that you were able to spend these 6 years watching Landon grow, he has so much love for you and has learned so much from you.....his love of reading.....music......you will forever be his Bgama. My heart is truly broken and I will never be the same but I will live my life knowing that you are at peace so that will make me smile and so will all of the awesome memories that I will carry with me. We will meet again someday Mama but until that day comes, I know you will be watching over us and listening to our prayers. When Landon and I look up at the moon, I know that you are right there looking at the same moon with us. I love you Mama, love you more than words.
