  1. Aunt Carol I am going to miss you so much, I will miss your smiling beautiful face, I will miss the way you treated all of the kids in our family, I will miss you at our family picnics, I will miss you during our crazy holidays, and most of all I am going to miss your unforgettable laugh. Love you

  2. Love you so much Aunt Carol. I will miss you everyday but know that you will watch over us always. Love You.

  3. Mom,
    There is a hole in my heart that cannot be patched. Life without you is like a rainstorm without the rainbow. Im so proud of the way you fought for us. Your courage and strength unmatchable. I know it was not easy for you to leave Alison and I, the babies or even our family. You did the best you could and love got you that far. I am thankful for god giving me to such a wonderful mother, so now when I become a mother, you can live on in me to my children. Its not fair that they will never get to experience the absolute beautiful loving fun grandmother you were going to be but I will always let them know…forever. We let you know that we loved you and it was okay to leave us, that we would be alright because we have eachother and we will be with time. Thank you for all the extra time you gave me, all the mornings we shared all summer. I could never tell you how much I loved and appreciated you because those words just don’t exist but I know you know and will always be with me. I love you mom very very very much always and forever. I’ll be seeing you..

  4. Mother you left us beautiful memories, your love is still our guide, although we cannot see you, your always at our side.

  5. My memories of Carol are fond memories. Carol was a beautiful woman inside and out. Carol & Steve raised two beautiful daughters, and their love will live on in those families.
    Words can not express the sadness and heartache I feel for Cassie and Alison. They would have liked more time with their Mom and Dad, But, honestly…I see Carol and Steve in both Cassey and Allison. In looks, and in personality.
    I pray God’s comfort for you Cassey and Allison, we will always be here for you as family so please do not feel alone. Love, Aunt Wendy

  6. My mom was my best friend. The most beautiful person I’ve ever known inside and out. She’s taught me how to be a good loving person. She amazed me the way she was with all children. I can’t figure out the right words to even say. My momma was just so special it’s hard to believe this is real. I thank you momma for letting me take care of you it’s the only way I would have had it. Send me a healthy beautiful baby!!! I know you said to me I would have a boy that would be bigger then Cassie’s babies and that it was his job to take care of them 🙂 love you so much. I can feel you with me. See you soon
    Love you always

    Christmas will always be a special time as well as all holiday I will miss you like you don’t even know. Xoxo

  9. Jack and I want to send our thoughts, prayers and love to everyone. It is so hard to lose your parents especially at such young ages. I hope the memories of both your mom and dad will help you get through this difficult time. Love Jack and Patty Lewis

  10. Alison and Cassie,

    I have been praying about what to write in this guestbook. We are family, in the very sense of the word. I want you to know that I am sorry for all of the loses you have endured over the last year. Yet you both have faced this time with grace, courage, and faith. It is beautiful to see. I wanted to share a memory about your mom, a woman I love very much. You know she is beautiful inside and out. Her beauty glows out from her and shines into the rest of us. Now as an angel in Heaven, for God told me that is what she is, she is shining even more. What I wanted to share about your mom is her laugh, specifically her face in mid-laugh. The way she threw her whole body into the laugh. She never did anything in half measure and that includes her joy of life and laughing! That is how I will always picture her caught in mid-laugh, radiating joy and life.

  11. Cassie and family…I am so deeply saddened to hear of your mom’s passing. I can see how much you love her and know that she will be with you always. You have our deepest sympathies and care. You will make your mom proud by being such a wonderful mother that I know you will be. xoxo
