  1. I’m so very sorry for your loss, losing those we love is the hardest thing we have to experience. May you find comfort in beautiful memories and Jesus words, john 5:28, 29

  2. Mama, You were my proud mother for 67 years. There is no other women who can be more proud of her children. I loved and will miss your cooking and your desire to make everyone happy. I know you and I recently joked around about you and I were in race to the grave, unfortunately you won. I also know you wanted to be joined with Dad and happily I can say you are together again. My Love for you and Dad will never cease. Memories will always be there, I miss you already. Go rest high on that mountain and enjoy you new eternal life with our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. I LOVE You! Ich Liebe Dicht!

  3. My Dearest Mom…I miss you dearly! I have so many beautiful memories of you that I will cherish forever. You were a beautiful soul inside and out! Sitting here in reflection, I realize your inner strength…never complaining, never speaking poorly of anyone. You were our “quiet one”. You were an awesome mother, grandmother and great grandmother! May we continue the circle of life passing on your love and family values to one and all. I will especially cherish these last five years I have had with you as your caregiver…being able to keep you at home at your request. Now you are able to be with your husband, our dad, of 64 years of marriage. Endless thanks to the both of you for our life lessons! I will not say goodbye but “until we meet again”…please Rest In Peace and Eternal Love! With all my love…your daughter, Linda…God Bless You, in the name of Jesus, our Lord and Savior!

  4. Carolyn, my sister, was a kind great lady that never said a bad word about anyone. Will miss her. Love you, Carolyn, forever. Everyone that went before you is celebrating with you now. Love you💜❤️💜

  5. A great sadness accompanies the death of a loved one, particularly someone so loved by all. Our thoughts and prayers are with you. When the tears clear, and you remember times past, don’t forget to smile because she lived. Celebrate her life and keep alive those things you loved about her.

  6. You will always be remembered in my heart as my sweet and kind (Aunt Carolyn) !
    May you rest in peace with our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ!

  7. My dear sister were an angel to us all here on Earth and now you can watch over us in will always be in my heart.. I hope I can be as caring as you have been..I enjoyed all the times we spent together and how happy you were to finally have Linda home! May you rest in peace with family and our Heavenly Father…
