So sorry we can't be there with ya'll during this time but you are in our prayers and know that our hearts are with ya''ll.
This is a very good picture. Always loved me so Aunt Nellie, fistie, go getter, never slowing down. Seemed to be always happy. Just loved her so much. Of course, I imagine, you kids seen the other side of her. I just wasn't around her to see it! Have a special place in my heart for ya'll, please don't ever forget that, I would love to see you one more time on this side of heaven but if I don't then I pray I will see you there.
Donna you have my phone number, please give it to whoever may want it, I am never too far from the phone and I will be right to listen.
THIS IS WHAT I WANT EACH OF YOU TO REMEMBER, MORE THAN ANYTHING ELSE THAT I HAVE SAID!!!! It is ok to grieve, no one grieves the same way. you each one are in the same boat, but each of you had a different relationship with your Mom, so no one knows exactly how you feel. Just like when other people say "I know just how you feel" No they don't because they are not you. If you want to jump up and down, its ok; scream, ok; cry, ok; whatever as long as it is legal and and don't bodily hurt you. Take as long as need. It is all ok. Don't let anyone tell you otherwise. She was your Mom and your relationship. I love you!!!!!!
