    I still can’t believe you are gone and I am writing this. You and I have shared so many memories that I will cherish. You were like a mother to me and always there for me when I needed you. Even times I didn’t know I needed you. I miss you so much and will forever be thankful to have been with you during your final hours. I will always hold you in my heart and love you forever. Thank you for being a part of my life and loving me like a daughter. Please watch over our fur babies. Till we meet again. I love you. RIP

    Kristyn & Jason,
    My heart is with you. It is so difficult to lose the people we love. I hope that all of the wonderful memories you’ve built with your Mom will bring you some sort of solace. There’s no doubt that she will be watching over you. Rest easy Dee. One day we will meet again.

    I hate to have to say goodbye to my friend of 20+ years. We had such fun together and lots of laughs. The memories are endless. Thank you for your friendship. I will always love you and you own part of my heart. Give them hell up there. Until we meet again. Your children will have great memories of their mom. You loved them so very much. RIP
