CandleMY DEAREST AUNT BABES, AUNT ALICE, MOM. OH HOW I'M GOING TO MISS THOSE LATE NIGHT PHONE CALLS & TALKS, MEMORIES OF THE OLD DAYS UP TIL THE PRESENT, HOME BINGO, & ESPECIALLY COOKING FOR THE HOLIDAYS & OTHER TIMES YOU JUST NEEDED SOMETHING DIFFERENT TO EAT. YOU ALWAYS LOVED YOUR LATE NIGHT CRAVINGS & SNACKS FOR COOKIES, DONUTS, & CAKE. GONNA MISS VISITING & SPENDING TIME WITH YOU ON THE HOLIDAYS, YOUR BIRTHDAYS & JUST DOING A DRIVE-BY, AND ALSO YOU ASKING CRYSTAL TO TAKE A RIDE OVER THE HOUSE TO SEE & PET THE DOGS & TO SHARE A SMOKE, & SENDING YOU HOME WITH BAGS OF GOODIES. YOU ALSO HAD SUCH LOVE FOR ALL DOGS, CATS, SQUIRRELS, & YOUR SPECIAL BIRDS. I'M SO FORTUNATE, HONORED & BLESSED THAT YOU WERE MY AUNTIE. I FIND SOLACE IN MY HEART THAT YOU HAD THE MOST PEACEFUL & ENJOYABLE TRANSITION INTO HEAVEN & WAS GREETED BY THE FAMILY, GOD, & THE ANGELS WITH OPEN ARMS. UNTIL WE MEET AGAIN.......I MISS YOU LIKE CRAZY. LOVE, YOUR SPECIAL NIECE. OXOX KATHLEEN OXOX❤️🥰💋👼

Dear Mom, how can I ever thank you for your never-ending love, the knowledge, strength and courage you shared with me? I always said you and Dad are my favorite people! I sometimes wonder how I will ever go on, but I know in my heart you will always be with me. I know when I get really scared, I will still feel your arms fiercely pulling me to your heart and holding me so tight. I will miss your laugh and our private jokes (remember how we'd poke each other and whisper "kwacki" and laugh so uncontrollably!) I will never forget the complete trust you and Dad placed in me, always ignoring or forgetting the times I really messed up, making me laugh at myself when I feared disappointing you both. I will miss everything about you. This is now your time to be in heavenly peace with God, Jesus, the Holy Spirit, and all of our faithfully departed loved ones. I love you always and forever, Crystal
