You welcomed me into the fold of your family as if I was your own and never treated me any differently. You are truly an Angel that will be missed on earth.  You helped mold me into the woman I am today (only the good parts).  The universe has a way of gifting us with people we didn't know we needed until we can't imagine life without them. While it will be hard without you I know you are in a better place enjoying your time with Pops.  You will be truly missed and know you will always carry a special place in my heart.  To Ronny, Donny, Phillip and Shannon words can't take away your pain but know I love you all and will be here for you. Thank you all for sharing your Mom with me.
All my love,

You have proved your love, shared your wisdom, kept your covenant with Jim, loved your children, reached out to others as a mom in their lives, laughed and overcome, brought family to God and encouraged them in the faith. You have been there for grandkids, proclaiming justice as your standard but mercy as your heart. I am so grateful God chose us to be cousins and blessed us to have so many sweet memories. We
already miss you and your sweet "happy go lucky" attitude that brightened every occasion.  You left us with more to do, more love to give away, more hugs to share, more prayers to pray. So it is time to get busy, you rest in Jesus until we all finish our work, I love you.

I would like to extend my condolences to the family of Billie Parsons. Our wonderful Heavenly Father has given us the loving assurance that we can see our loved ones again by means of a resurrection. (Acts 24:15). We can always rely on the God of comfort to help us endure any difficulties, especially the loss of a loved one.
