Dear Mom, Words can't describe our relationship, we were so much alike, we could read each others minds before we every spoke, and knew exactly what the other one was going to say, mom you were by far the best mother in the world, no matter what time I came in from hunting, hanging out with friends,ect. you always got out of bed and checked on me, most of the time by the time I had changed my clothes you already had a snack for me, You always treated my friends with so much respect, always had an open door policy with them and treated them all like they were family as well, with food, love,jokes, Your house was always spotless, the love you had for Dad, Me, and Tina was so sincere, God came first, then your Family, when I would hear you talk to people 90% of your conversations was bragging about us and the grandchildren, you were so proud of all your family, You were such a great Christian, seen you a lot reading your Bible, Praying and so many prayers were for your family, And the way you were with all of your Grandchildren, Always spoiling them, taking the best care of them possible, When I would leave for work never had any doubts about the love and care you had for my children and Tina's kids, and how safe they would be, You would keep me up calling me when I drive the truck on weekends to make sure I was ok and awake, Always worrying about your family, All the people at Church loved and respected you mom, you always had a smile on your face, and loved to go to camp meeting, revivals, and worship God, you loved so much to watch me play softball and would always blow your horn when I would hit a homerun, or get a good hit, I sure miss those days mom, Then when my kids played ball, You thought the ground they played on was gold, You always thought they were the best ball players in the world, and as soon as the game was over, they always would run to your car, and you would kiss them and give them snacks, They miss that so bad, Mom God sure has the best Angel in Heaven now, when you left this old crazy world and passed on to heaven, We sure will miss you but can't wait to see you on the other side, Mom you were my best friend, we shared so many secrets, You were the best wife Dad could ever possible want, your love,honesty,dedication,hard work,support,and the list goes on and on, always had a hot meal for dad, Always kissed him as soon as he walked in the door from work, Always had his clothes ironed, the house spotless, The love you two shared for each other was so awesome, most people will never experience what you and Dad have, I never seen you and dad fight, argue, you guys were just like newlyweds, Always in Love, and had each others back no matter what, You were by far the best Mother and Grandmother in the world and that's just not words coming from me that's the truth, I don't know of any lady that could even come close to walking in your footsteps, Mom thanks for all the best memories, Love, affection that any son could ever imagine, thanks, when you left I lost my best friend,The most dearest person in the world to me other than my children, You are going to be missed so bad, I Know your with God now and have a brand new body and having the time of your life, The last 7 years were so rough on you, couldn't walk, being in a nursing home, bed sores, depression, ect. but when we came by to visit you acted like nothing was wrong, had a huge smile on your face and a huge smile when I would leave, and was always concerned about me and my family, and Tina's Family, I sure hated when you got transferred to Greensboro, when you were in Thomasville I was able to see you 4-5 days a week, and sure hated when you had to leave cause that cut a lot of our time out, But we still talked on the phone every day, Mom you set a bar way to high for any one to follow, I know your watching over your family now, and want us to stop mourning your passing, so I will do my best, but there's not a day going to pass that I wont think of you, my new necklace with your ashes will be worn every day until I meet you in Heaven, its so hard to say good bye mom, I Love you so much,more than you could imagine, I'am going to miss you so much, See you in heaven Mom, Loves and kisses.
