I have never met a stronger person than my sister Shirley. What she has endured these past 4 years is a miracle in itself. Now she has gone on to be with with Joe. May she find peace in her new journey. And may all her family and friends smile when we see a white butterfly go by.

Love Aunt Sandy and Uncle Rick

Donna Augur (Bristol VNA)

Dear Mom,

I love you with all my heart and soul. You are my hero, I am so proud to have you as my mom and I am so blessed to have had you in my life and to be with you at the end of this journey for you as you went with Joe. I can only imagine the look on your face when you saw him again after all this time, your eyes must of brightened up the sky and your smile so bright I wish i could of seen that moment but I'm sure it was as beautiful as I imagine...

You are the heart and soul of our family I only hope I can do half as good of a job as you.

Just like I said to you as you were taking your lasts breath I am proud of you, I love you and you are the brightest angel and whoever gets you as their guardian angel is a very lucky person... I love you mom always and forever

my grams was the single most amaizing person i have ever known. She was able to adapt herself to anyone person to help them. she could bring herself down to your level to see and undersnd how your feeling not just to help you, but so you wont feel alone. she can make you feel so warm and so complete like all is right in the world ,when really its all wrong. the only woman who would stand alone againts an army if she felt she was right. all of her bravery came from all of her pain and the way her life started. but she carried all her pain like it blonged there and shaped her. she made it her own world . where only love for family and friends mattered. i only hope that we all listen to what i belive is her greatest lesson of all to carrie on the traditon she bilt to stay a strong family and love everyone no matter what!

gram i will miss you always

i can never thank you enough

Stephanie Jones

My deepest sympathies to all of the family.
