    Terry, I remember when we were Brownies and your Mother and Jane’s Mother were our scout leaders. We always had so much fun. I am so sorry for your loss. I will be keeping you in my thoughts and prayers.

    I am sorry for your family’s loss. Our Heavenly Father never intended for us to grow older and pass away in death. He promises soon to change things! Isaiah 25:8 says “He will actually swallow up death forever, and the Sovereign Lord Jehovah will certainly wipe the tears from all faces. And the reproach of his people he will take away from all the earth, for Jehovah himself has spoken it.”

    Thank you for everything you have taught me and all of the memories. I love you with all my heart and you will not be forgotten. I am proud to call you my Grandmother.There was never time that you weren’t there for me, and I know that there never will be. Tell Grandpa we miss him, and I am glad you two are finally reunited. I remember all the projects we would work on together, all the cherries, gooseberries and walnuts we would pick. I remember the first year or so when I shaved my head anytime you would see me you would tell me how you wish I would grow my hair out. I remember when we went down to Branson with you and you introduced us to the likes of Boxcar Willie and Ray Stevens. I am going to miss everything about you. From the phone calls just to see what we were up to or what we had for dinner to the 4H projects to the trips to Bucky’s Park and Hobby Lobby. Grandma you will always be in our hearts. I will see you in my dreams until we meet again on the other side.
