Share your Memorial with Family & Friends

I knew I would miss you horribly when you went to heaven, but I had no idea how much. I start to call or text you so many times a day with something like dancing birds, crazy cat antics, asking for your opinion or advice or just talking about anything and everyone. I love you so much mom. I had so many friends throughout my life who said they wished you were their mom and who instantly warmed right up to you. You were very special to SO MANY people. I know you are young and strong again and I know how thrilled you are to be with your dad (your "pal"), my Amber, and all those you loved who went home before you. I look forward to our heavenly reunion too! Love you forever mom.

Emily you will be so missed. Your childlike enthusiasm and interest in everything your kids, grands and greats did was such a joy to you. Even as a grandparent himself, Scott just had to call his mom when the flowers bloomed or he accomplished something new. You were always his #1 cheerleader.. As A daughter in law you modeled strength as I watched you navigate your life joys and struggles and unconditional love for your children. You seemed to collect people and left everyone smiling with your ‘life of the party’ verve and infectious laugh. This is represented by the number of truly life long friends you continued to stay in contact with right up until you went home. I know you are reveling in your reunion with your family. Please hug my cantankerous and equally social father. We will all see you later. I love you, Debbie

To my sweet and caring mother in-law Emily. I will always smile when I think of the time we had together. You welcomed me into your family like I was one of your own, and immediately shared your love and humor with me! I could talk to you about anything and you would always listen and take the time to give me your sincere opinion as if it was my own mother. We always would laugh and talk about sports, life, and anything that was on our minds. To have a beautiful wife with a mom that really cared about our happiness and struggles is a true blessing. You also accepted my children into your life and treated them like your own grandkids! Your heart was full of love and joy for everyone! You would be so proud of all the accomplishments and milestones of every member of your family. You are the best example of a loving matriarch that I have ever seen. My heart is broken by your passing and I will miss your smile, your hugs, your voice and all the love and respect that you gave me. Because of my strong believe in Jesus and our father God, I know you are in heaven and you are happy, strong, and reunited with all of those who passed over before you! Thank you for all the love you gave us, be at peace and know that you will truly be missed. Until we meet again, all of my love and prayers are with you for eternity. Peace be with you Mom❤️🌹💔

Oh Emily! You always made me laugh! Your personality was infectious and I was blessed to have known you for over 55 years! You also blessed me with my best friend, confidant, and true partner in crime, aka Jellybean! Please say hello to my Mom and Dad! Heaven has aquired a new, funny and fiesty Angel! 💕 Your days here on Earth were a blessing to everyone who crossed your path!
