  1. You will be missed by everyone. The Tasmanian devil will be with you forever. We love you and rest in peace Aunt Janet and Uncle Bill.

  2. I don’t think there exist words to express how broken I feel that you’re gone. For better or worse, you are my mom. I am so very sorry that I couldn’t help you. That your demons were stronger than you could handle. I’m finding comfort knowing your back with Pa, Nana, Scott, and so many others who left the world before you.

    I hope you can now see just how much we all loved you. Your spirit and memories will live on with us forever. There are so many uniquely mom traits that I pass on each day….saltines with butter, sloppy joe with American cheese, your intense love of socks, complete coordinated outfits, Noah’s Ark, Stars and Moons, the list could go on forever…because you were about as unique as it gets.

    I talk to you daily just as I do with Nana and Pa. This will be the hardest thing I ever anticipate going through and I will get through it – because you taught me how to be strong. We were all so very lucky to have you in our lives, even if it was all too brief.

    “When your heart is breaking for someone who is broken, but your words can’t reach them and your love can’t save them, ask angels to go where you cannot. To whisper into their heart what their ears can’t hear.”

    I only hope you can now hear how much we all loved you. Rest easy, mom, and welcome home.
