    Mom, you were a wonderful mother to both me and Allie. You did, on your own, what most have a hard time doing with a partner. We thank you for everything you did for us. We know you will be around us from now on. Miss you tons, but thankful you’re in a better place. Say hi to everyone up there. Love you, Ma.

    Ryan and Allie; my thoughts are with you all. Your Mom was a wonderful, caring person and it was a pleasure knowing and working with her! We loved to share our stories about what was going on with our kids/families. She was so proud of you both!!! I will miss her dearly!! You both take care and hold on to all those special memories of your wonderful Mom!!!
