  1. Memaw you will be forever missed.I really don’t know what I will do with myself now that you are gone. I love you so much until we meet again. I know you will be waiting on me at the Pearly Gate. Love, Char

  2. Mom
    I will miss hearing your voice on the other end of the phone. I will miss hearing all of the little details about your day, and sharing all of the insignificant details of my day with you.
    I will miss hugging you. I will miss the sound of your vibrant laugh, and I will miss the way you would smile at me from across the room, a smile only shared by the two of us. So as simple and as vast as it is, I miss you. I miss you every single hour of every single day. And I will continue to miss you, day after day after day. I’m not sure if it will get easier, but I will keep going. I’m not sure if I will ever be okay, but I will try to be.
    But I do know one thing, if missing you every single day is the price I pay for loving you, it is well worth it. Love You Mom For Ever. Doug
