On a hill far away stood an old rugged cross
The emblem of suffering and shame
And I love that old cross where the dearest and best
For a world of lost sinners was slain
So I'll cherish the old rugged cross
Till my trophies at last I lay down
And I will cling to the old rugged cross
And exchange it some day for a crown

Dear Terry And Linda,
Just want u to know I’m thinking of you guys, I know today will be a hard day, but want u to know how much Charlie and Hailee And I wish we were home with the family. I’ll always remember how much Grammy loved to sit and visit with us and tell stories and she would always make us snacks, she always made me feel so welcome and loved. She would always tell me stories about Charlie when he was little. I’m thankful for all the years of memories I was lucky to have with her. We love you guys so much.
Love, Whitney

One of my fondest memories of my grandma would be the times we spent during the holidays, especially my younger years as a child when would go to her house for Christmas. I remember her good home cooked meals and her Christmas goodies she would make for all the kids and how she always made sure we all had plenty of presents to open. And the talks she would have with me about life when i would go to her house to spend the night. My favorite homemade meal from her was her meatloaf, i will never forget the taste. Also i will never forget her and her smile she will always be a part of us and i know she is in a better place with her husband and dog Shawnee, i will miss her dearly and i will ne...ver forget her.Read more

I will always cherish my memories with my Grandma and the times we shared together. I remember when I was little she came to my grandparents day every year when I was in elementary school. Then we left school early and went to burger king. Good times and good memories. She is in a better place with God.

I read an inspirational quote that shows how I feel about my mom.
“A mother’s hug lasts long after she lets go.”
I love you Mom,

We little knew that day,
God was going to call your name.
In life we loved you dearly,
In death, we do the same.

It broke our hearts to lose you.
You did not go alone.
For part of us went with you,
The day God called you home.

You left us beautiful memories,
Your love is still our guide.
And although we cannot see you,
You are always at our side.

Our family chain is broken,
And nothing seems the same,
But as God calls us one by one,
The chain will link again.

Love you Grammy, miss you every day.
