  3. Mama,

    You gave your children an example of uncompromising love. Pouring yourself out into family, friends,

    strangers. You always were giving of your time and resources to the least of these… as it says in The Bible Matthew 25:35,40 (35)”For I was hungry and you gave me something to eat, I was thirsty and you gave me something to drink, I was a stranger and you invited me in, (40) “The King will reply, ‘Truly I tell you, whatever you did for one of the least of these brothers and sisters of mine, you did for me.’”

    I remember many teachable moments Mama would present through her example. Her life principles of true life success and significance were evident and clear.

    Mama you were always proud of me regardless of financial success, mistakes in life, or affliction I carry. You stood firm unwavering, uncompromising, to always encourage me and those needing life’s lift in this fallen world.

    I hope to carry on your legacy to encourage people in this world as you did.

    Mama, you are greatly loved and greatly missed.

    Your son,

  8. My grammy always said that we had a bond that no one else had. When i was a baby she would pat my back and i would pat hers too. She was so amazing, kind, and loving. I will always remember and miss swing dancing with her, going to the tillamook cheese factory, listening to oldies and the lion king soundtrack, her cooking, and most of all just hugging her. She was the most amazing grammy. She always loved me no matter what. My life wont be the same without her. We would always compete to be the first to say i love you infinity and then when i would say it first she would say “aww you turkey”. My heart is broken. I miss her so much. I love you infinity grammy. luv keekers
