Dear mom, I am missing you so much today...I will be there to visit your grave and talk to you in a little while after I walk your dog Brady. You would have loved him and he would have loved being near your side. He is the most patient dog in the world. I know he would have been so loyal to you as he is to me. He is a handsome little dog!. It's October 7th, 2015. I so wish you were still here with all of us. You are 93 now and I know if we had you here, we all would still be loving all over you. I pray they find a cure for the awful illness that took your mind from you. I love you so very much and I'm grateful we were able to have 'our' talk' before you died. So glad to have that closure before you went away. I always loved you and ALWAYS will. Someday we will be together again....Lots of Hugs and kisses mom....I love you! Karen

Dear Andy, I want you to know how proud I am of you and your family for showing your mother the love and the devoting you had for her.
all of her children showed so much love to her before and after. Everyday up at Brady you all where there. I will never ever get over that. You 5 stuck together like glue. Over these past few years i have seen that you have one of the nicest families I have ever met. You did your family and friends proud tonight and I will be thinking about each and everyone of you tomorrow. .. You have always been my favorite brother in
law and always will be.. Please know our door is always open to you and you are like a son to mom...
