  10. candle 7Sister
    For many years we’ve shared our lives; we’ve once lived under one roof. Sometimes we laughed, sometimes we cried. The younger years have faded fast, and we’ve gone our separate ways.
    But through all times, our bond in life remains. You are and will always be my Sister.
    “The Lord bless you and keep you; the Lord make his face shine on you and be gracious to you; the Lord turn his face toward you and give you peace.” Number 6:24-26

I appreciated your words of encouragement. You fought the good fight but now may you Rest In Peace! Well I know we will all miss you dearly and I will try keep my word to you!
    Rest well Aunt Jean

  15. candle 3Kelly,

    I cannot begin to imagine how you feel. I know that your mom would want you to feel calm, at peace, and most importantly stress free.

    On days that are too hard or when you need just a few minutes to yourself, please take a moment to breathe….inhale slowly and exhale slowly.

    Each time you begin to feel a slight bit overwhelmed, as you continue to inhale slowly and exhale slowly…think of pleasant thoughts, think of your mom’s favorite food(s), hum the tune of your mom’s favorite song, and/or simply cry out to your mom for she will be able to hear you. Just because you cannot physically touch your mom, you will be able to see her and feel her presence each day because she is a part of you.

    Big sis, everything is going to be fine…

    We love you and send our deepest condolences,
    Daphnee, Charis, Nana, and Anthony
