If roses grow in heaven, Lord

Please pick a bunch for me.

Place them in my Mother’s arms

and tell her they’re from me.

Tell her I love her and miss her,

and when she turns to smile,

place a kiss upon her cheek

and hold her for a while.

Because remembering her is easy,

I do it everyday,

But there is an ache within my heart

That will never go away.

With love from your family

We can no longer see you with our eyes, but we will feel you in our hearts forever.

Sometimes you never know the value of a moment, until it becomes a memory.

Your loving wife and family

Dear Mom,

I missed you today.  I missed you yesterday and the day before. I have missed you for 365 days. I missed seeing you on your birthday. I’m grateful to all the great people who sent you birthday cards on your 90th  and last birthday. They made you feel special and that was the best gift.

I missed your call so very much on my birthday in August. Last Thanksgiving was the first Thanksgiving I had without you. And Christmas… I missed you last Sunday, on Easter. Sometimes I even miss you in my dreams!

And now, it’s been a year of days, nights and holidays of missing you. So I am writing a memorial to you in the newspaper that you and I created together over 30 years ago. There were many long nights working side by side that I will always remember. I couldn’t have done it without you. 

It’s still here mom, thanks to a whole lot of wonderful readers who gave donations to keep it going. And also with the support of our advertisers, of course. 

One whole year.

Miss you,

your forever-loving daughter, Lois

“Music speaks what cannot be expressed

soothes the mind and gives it rest

heals the heart and makes it whole

flows from heaven to the soul.”

Remembering all the good times and looking forward to making music with you again in God’s Kingdom.

We all miss you!

Love Your Family

In loving memory of Marlene L. Nemecek.

You are loved and missed.

Never Forgotten.

You’ll never be forgotten

That simply cannot be.

As long as I’m living,

I’ll carry you with me.

Safely tucked within my heart

Your light will always shine;

A glowing amber never still,

Throughout the end of time.

No matter what the future brings.

Or what may lie ahead,

I know that you will walk with me

Along the path I tread.

So rest my angel, be at peace.

And let your soul fly free,

One day I’ll join your glorious flight,

For all eternity.

by Kelly A. Polley

Love you forever, Ivan

You filled the world with special joy

and happiness untold,

You always had a sunny way

and a lovely heart of gold.

You made life so much brighter

just be being thoughtful, too,

And saying kind and helpful things

was typical of you.

That’s why it’s hard to face the world

and know you won’t be there,

Lighting up life so warmly

with your smile beyond compare.

The memories you’ve left behind

grow sweeter day by day

But you are missed, dear Mom and Grandma,

more than any words can say.

Love, Jennifer, Tim, Danielle & Lizzie
