Memories Timeline


  1. Fargo North Dakota
    TJ and Kyle, I met your mom years ago when she brought you as babies to daycare at Blossom Bright. It was so much fun to reconnect with all of you at Sierra’s graduation party in May and see how you have grown! Your mom was such a beautiful person! My thoughts and prayers are with you and your family.

  2. Carol and Family,
    I will always remember Debbie as the sweet fifth-grader I had the pleasure of getting to know a bit in 1976 when we all got together at Aunt Eleonore’s, especially her telling about being in band, and her lovely, gentle nature. May you all find peace in your memories of her.
    Love, Ann

  3. I still can’t believe it. My heart drops into my stomach every time I think of you. I just can’t bear the thought of you being gone. I can’t sleep because I never got a chance to tell you how much you really mean to me. How amazing I think you are. How you’ve changed my life and the way I look at things. I really messed up some things last year. I wasn’t always the best person to the people I cared about and I would always push them away. You have taught me so much. You have shown me the kind of parent I want to be someday. The kind of parent who loves their kids more than anything and would do anything to see them happy. You showed me what it felt like to have a mother figure in my life. I could go to you for anything and you would wipe my tears and tell me that you were there and that everything would be okay. You were everything every parent should be. I could tell you anything and I could trust you more than anyone. I remember sitting on your bed with you watching Luke Bryan perform live on t.v and T.J just sat there and made fun of us but we laughed, and had a great time. Every day with you was a memorable moment that I will cherish forever. I love you more than you will ever know. Rest easy, mom. I miss you. Thank you for always being there when nobody else was.
