Quote from Lloyd
Do not be amazed at this time, for a time is coming when all who are in their graves will hear his voice and will rise to live
Quote from John
Losing a mother is a pain that cannot be described in words. It is virtually impossible to move on from the memory of losing the woman who sacrificed happiness in her own life so that you could have a better one. A mother's love is truly irreplaceable.
Quote from Paul
The hand that rocks the cradle also makes the house a home
it is the prayers of the mother that keeps the family strong
Quote from Tina
I was not ready to let go, but the decision was not up to me, Your ten year battle is now over, knowing you are at peace eases my heart, but you not being here with me calling out my name keeps the tears falling, I love and miss you so much.
