    Thank you Mom for being there for me for so many years. I’ve seen you through your good times and the bad and for the life of me wondered where you got the strength at time to go on, and still display the external look of joy that only the Lord could have given you. It’s heart breaking for you to be gone yet a joy to know you are in a better place. I love you Mom and will never forget.

    I have so many memories of Aunt Estella and Uncle Art from long ago, I spent alot of time at their house and remember the fun I use to have with both of them, and how safe I always felt while in their company. It’s hard to beleive that both of them are gone now, but I will always have the great memories from my childhood to live on. Thanks for the memories!, I will miss you!

    I am so sorry to hear about Estella, I wish to offer my sincerest condolences to the Harrington family and their friends. I know this is a very difficult time and I hope the wonderful words of the resurrection at John 5:28,29 can bring you some comfort.

    I will miss you grandma. It still doesn’t feel real to me that I will not hear your laugh again, at least not in this life. I look forward to being reunited with you in the next. I love you.
