Memories Timeline


  1. Uncle Jake, Jake, Lori and Artie,
    So very sorry to hear that Aunt Betty has passed. My thoughts and prayers are with you!

  2. Dearest Mom,
    I miss you more than I can express. Thank you for being my mom, friend and supporter. All of my love forever. Always in my heart. (and Tipper’s too)

  3. It’s still so hard to believe that you are gone. You were my Best Friend, my Rock & the Best Mom ever. I will cherish and hold all the fond memories in my heart of our lunch outings to Parkside & Critics. Our annual Christmas shopping adventures before you couldn’t go anymore & our pre holiday grocery store shopping trips when my ankles would hurt for days because you ran into them with the drivable shopping cart. I’m going to miss coming over the night before thanksgiving to make your amazing stuffing & then coming over early the next morning to get the food going & eating multiple rolls before everyone got there. I miss you so much it hurts but I know you are in a much better place without pain. I will Forever Love You! Make sure you meet me at the gates of Heaven when the Good Lord comes calling upon me! XOXO until we meet again.
