    Mom, You will be missed. We have had a lot of fun with you and Dad since we came to Florida in 2000. We have lived next door to you twice and I wouldn’t part with a minute of our time together playing cards, eating out, and seeing some of the sites together. I know you are no longer in pain and that you are with Dad and all your relatives. That makes me smile. I love you and miss you.

    What a blessing you have been throughout my life. You taught me to be kind, loving and to always share what you have with others.
    You loved your family above all else and I am at peace knowing that you are reunited with Dad and countless family members. Thank you for all of the wonderful memories. I will always cherish the camping trips and vacations we took together. We always had a great time. I will keep all of these things in my heart, until we are together again. I love and miss you.

    You have always been a part of our lives. You never missed a birthday or an opportunity to do some Christmas decorating. Sleepovers at your house were always memorable and included lakeside visits, feeding the ducks, Nanny’s homemade sun tea, grilled cheese sandwiches, a neverending cookie jar and the occasional burnt toast for breakfast. It was tradition to visit Nanny on Halloween even when we were old enough to drive and later had children of our own who could call you Gigi. We will treasure every trip from camp fire adventures to bush gardens and sleeping bear sand dunes. We will miss going through all of the old photo albums and hearing the stories of the good old days and how much the price of milk used to be or a loaf of bread. You loved us unconditionally and were always proud of us. You will forever be in our hearts. We love you.
    Jeff, Shelley and Tessa
