Life is but a moment. It has been hard to accept but I know God's will is what we have to accept. It makes no sense to ask why because if God did explain it I still would not understand. My Love for you remains in my heart you live on. Until we meet again cuz

Carol Jamison was one of my mothers best friends growing up. I remember going to Aunt Lucy's as a kid in Vandalia which was right across the street. Carol always smiled I don't remember ever seeing anything but a smile on her face. Now she is smiling with her mom and the Lord and there is no more pain. My heart and Prayers go out to the family.

Oh my, Sister. Where do I start? We have been together since birth. Grew up side by side and loved each other for 68 plus, years. I won't say good bye but see you later because we will see each other again. I am thankful that your pain and suffering is over. I know you're in a better place but I miss you so much, already. Fly high, Sweetie. I know your parents, aunts, uncles, grand parents, and friends, will be happy to see you. Prayers for Bill. He's going to miss you terribly and your daughter and granddaughters. Love you so much and miss you already.
