    Candle 5RIP Delores! Your journey through life was a full and loving one! You never turned anyone down in need, and I know you are part of who I am today! Thank you for all the caring loving and stability you have provided! I am so happy I was able to spend some time with you before you decided it was time to see Tommy and other loved ones! I know they were waiting with open arms! Tell Tommy the Thing sends her love and that I miss him as I will miss you Delores! The only thing that makes this even remotely acceptable is knowing the two of you are together again! Thank you Delores for all the laughter and good times when I was young! It helped to make up for many things! Be at peace! I love you!

    Candle 8Grandma you meant the world to me. I can’t imagine what life will be like without you. As sad as I am, I’m comforted to know that you were able to celebrate your birthday with Grandpa & Jesus. I know it was an amazing day, and that was THE BEST gift you could have gotten! Until I see you again…in heaven & in my dreams 💕. RIH forever.
