I will see you when the angels sing. ~ Donna

You are in our hearts and may the angels wrap their wings around you. Rest in Peace ~ Pat & Jim

Getting caught with the spoon in her potato salad. I’m going to miss her potato salad. Helping her decorate her house inside and out for the holidays. Christmas was her favorite. Watching her creativity blossom in her crafts and how special I felt when she gave me one. Our trips to the desert and mountains. The lunches she made with the wind dried bread from the back of the truck after spending the morning shooting. Her shooting skills were awesome. ~ Jay

I have so many memories of my mom. Too many to list. She always loved to go out for lunch and dinner to the Mexican restaurant. My most recent memory is going on the fall color ride through Telluride and Silverton where we had lunch. It was raining so hard up there the curbs were filled with water. Two very nice gentlemen took her by the arms and picked her up and put her on the sidewalk. She thought that was so nice of them to do that. She had a big smile from ear to ear. Then she turned to me and said “They were cute.”
Momma, I will miss you every day of my life, until we meet again in heaven. My dad has you wrapped in his wings and all of the other angels love you with all their hearts. ~ Linda

My memories of my grandma are a huge part of my life. I always looked forward to spending the nights with her. She made me feel so secure. When I would stay at her house we would do crafts, and then we would go out for lunch. On my birthdays my grandma and grandpa would take me out for dinner. We went camping on the beach and rode our bikes. She always had spearmint gum in her purse. Every time I smell spearmint gum, I think of her. Thank you for all the memories that you left me, and the adventures. Rest in peace my sweet grandma ~ Holly

Some of my favorite memories are how I enjoyed gardening with her when I was little and big family get togethers at her and grandpa’s house. She always made those delicious Swedish meatballs. Love you always ~ Mellodie

May all the angels you have in heaven wrap their wings around you. We will miss you. Love you, grandma. ~ Emily, Audrey and Corbin

Your memory will reside with our hearts forever ~ Gary, Bill and Glen
