Dear Terry and family, you will always have fond memories of your mother! Your mother was very friendly to me when I first met her. I will always remember that and how her smile made me feel very warm! Hope this plant will go on forever as your memories will of your mother! Thinking about you today!

My thoughts and prayers are with you and your family. May God hold her and keep her till you meet again. It is sad when we loss a loved one of such importance in our lives, there is an emptiness that just can't be filled. Although, she is no longer with you, her spirit and memories live on now and forever within. That is something that will never go away. So, spend each day, remembering the love she gave to each and everyone of you and May God be with you all. Love Susanne
