My grandmother was a wonderful grandmother. She did enjoy being around her great-grandchildren but she also enjoyed her grandchildren and her own children. She was always concerned for all of her kin. She asked me about my brother, who lives in Texas, alot. She always put others before herself. She made sure, before she got real sick, to have family around her for holidays. We all spent many Thanksgivings and other holidays together. She loved frogs. She was a very proud woman and she has passed that on to her children and grandchildren. She always tried to stay strong but for those of us she was close to she let that guard down and opened up. I moved back to Ohio in 2004 and her and I talked just about every day. She shared with me lots of things and I am glad I could be there for her when she needed me. She always taught me to be strong but she also taught me to accept mistakes and to learn from them. She also told it like it was. She is a Leo and so am I. I am grateful to share that sign with her. We are a lot alike and I know I will make her proud. There are many memories of her that I will always cherish. The time we spent together will never be forgotten. I will love her forever and I know she will watch over my family.

I will always remember her simply as "mama" my grandmother who was there for me from begining to my adult life.  At a very young age she came to me when I needed her, and from then on I was always close.  Like the perfect grandmother she was, she was always interested in what i was doing and what my goals were.  As an young teenager living far away she still was concerned.  And now as a grown adult I feel proud to have known her, proud to have spent my childhood with her, and most of all proud to call her my "mama" she will never be forgotten and I will never forget what she has taught me
   Forever loving
        Kyle Rager

My Mother, My friend.
Mom, your life was full of loving deeds,
Forever thoughtful of my needs.
Today, tomorrow and my whole life through,
I will always love and cherish you.

I turned, and you were there for me;
I spoke and you understood.
Your wisdom helped me to see;
How life was about being good.

I’m fortunate that I was born
To someone just like you.
Even though you are gone,
You live in what I do.

Your loving daughter,
Cheryl

Eulah, you were one of my bestest buddies.  We had a lot of good times together. I'll miss those great times. You always counseled me even before you got your degree! you were very very wise. You always were there for me and many others. I was so glad I could make it back in time for your service. Now you can be with your baby Ricky and wont have to suffer anymore pain. You may be gone but never, never forgotten.  Love, Nance

In honor of my Mother
Although you left the earth, your footprints remain forever in your children, grandchildren and great-grandchildren you left behind through your wisdom, love and guidance.  Those footprints are deep within our hearts.  You were a giving and caring person and you shared your knowledge and accomplishments with us. You faced difficult times with courage and never stopped caring for the ones you loved.  You were always there for me and I miss you so much.  I miss your laugh, your smile, your voice, your words of advice and the cable.  That will always make me laugh. These things prove that, without a doubt, death has NO victory in the story of your cancer. For even in your death, you will live on through the lives you touched.  I love you Mom.  Cheryl
