Condolence & Memory Journal

My beautiful mother. The best person I've ever known. I miss you more and more each day. It isn't getting better. I know you are catching up on some needed rest. I know you hung on for us and that your last months were a fight. I'm thankful for every minute I've ever spent with you. You were taken too soon, but then I think about the fact that no amount of time would've felt like enough. Even though you aren't here anymore, my love for you still is. And I guess I have to learn how to make that good enough.

Dear Mark and family,
Jane was such a special person, and I will always treasure the time she was in our lives. I'm not sure I ever knew such a gentle and kind person. I will always be grateful that I got to see her again after such a long time. With her, it was as if time stood still, and it was wonderful. I will be praying for you all! Lyle and Melissa

Jane was such a wonderful person. Whenever she could be she was at church services and always bringing one or all of the grandchildren. She was a great example of a Christian lady who cared about her family.
