I love you so much, and we always made sure we told each other that before I left you for the day. I felt a lot peace regarding your passing although it doesn't make it any easier day to day. However, my comfort is that you are with Dad, your parents and our Lord! You are singing with Angels now!

Love your daughter,

Maria #7 Heaven

My thoughts are with all of you during this time of saying goodbye to your mom. I have so many memories of family and your mom at the old house, way back when your dad was still with us.
Please take time to enjoy eachother. Share stories, memories, and your never-ending love for your folks. They are together again... Rest well, Gloria.

I'm not sure exactly how this works. But I do believe our connections on earth Martha, yours and mine, flow over to heaven. And I believe my husband Larry is going to take a look at your mother and embrace her with all the love, mand care, and music, and with all the rest of her family....she's going to be just fine. I love you, and let your heart rejoice

We know this is not the day you planned to see, but we just want to say that you all have some wonderful memories with a lady who God put on this earth temporarily that made a great impression in your lives, a spark in your hearts, and a smile on your faces. Please remember all those wonderful moments with her. For those of us who are close to you feel a little of your pain, but when you think of the times you all shared together we can’t help but to rejoice in her memory with you and give thanks to God for a such a special gift.

Love from your TACS family
