Mom, I love you with all my heart and I will miss you more than words can say. Be free my love. No more pain and your mind will be clear once again. I know Daddy was waiting for you with open arms and a beer in each hand. We had some really great times throughout our lives together. We were once mother and daughter, and then became best friends. I will always remember your sense of humor and your wit. I will rely on your wit to get me through the many tough days ahead. You were a strong woman Mom. I have inherited your strength. I love you Mom. Thanks for a wonderful life.

I met Fran almost 10 years ago. I lived across the street in RI. Everyday I would see her in her wheelchair out picking weeds from the sidewalk. I would go over and help her because it was the right thing to do. Afterwards, we would sit in the shady backyard and have a beer or two. We became fast friends. One day she introduced me to Nanci, her middle daughter. I ended up marrying her a few years later. Everyday I would come home and visit with Fran and of course have a beer or two. The talks and visits will be remembered -- always. Her smile and laughter will remain in my heart and mind. I will miss my visits and our outings we had. I will miss my Fran, but I know that she is with Don and Chris and everyone, and they are looking down upon us from high, and they are happy once again, as we are. Love you Fran.

Although I wasn't able to meet this special person I felt I knew how special she was by the many stories and conversations her daughter Cathy shared with me. Cathy, Mike, and family I am so sorry for your loss.

My Dearest Mother. The love I have for you is beyond words. We had our disagreements when I was a teenager, but, thankfully those were put behind us. When Chris died, you were 80 plus years old, but you were my rock. I was and will be eternally grateful for you at that devastating time. When you and I moved back to Rock Island in 2003 we had some amazing times. We laughed, and continued to grow closer than ever. You shared a very deep and painful secret with me, and I will continue to keep that just that a secret, and I will go to my grave with it. Mom, you were such a joy, funny, smart, quick witted and you had a soul of a angel. Soft hearted and sweet, you attracted friends, and kept them for life. When I was younger, and people said I looked like you, I can say I probably wasn't the happiness, but as I grew up, and as I gained wisdom, what a honor to be compared to you. Now, as a older adult, how special is it look, act, and be like you. You radiate personality Mom, how wonderful is that. I will miss you more than I can possibly explain, but, you are not gone, just your shell, your vessel for living on earth has been taken, now your heavenly journey begins. You can walk now, you can think right now, and ALL your Memories are in tact. Fly away Mom, fly high, live your eternal life. I will see you again. All my deepest love, Nan.
