To her children she was:


The greatest of women that has ever lived

Will be celebrated rather than grieved

She'll always be present, not leaving our side

The one that shines brightest

Always being our guide

Our hearts might feel sorrow

Yet still we find peace

That we'll see her again when our earthly lives cease.

 -Dennis (Son)


She was a mother, a wife and friend, she will be cherished even at the end. 

She turned a man’s darkest days into beautiful sunshine rays.

She brought joy and laughter to everyone she met.

-Jennifer (Daughter)
