Mom I will never forget the day God took you home. A million times I've needed you. A million times I've cried. If love alone could have saved you you would have
never died. In life I loved you dearly, in death I love you still. I'm my heart you hold a place no one else can fill. It broke my heart when you left me but part of me went with you the day God took you home. May you be in peace mom no pain until we meet again

Mom, things you taught me: You taught me how to cook and bake, digging through a box with all the recipes cut out of magazines or newletters from Betty Thomas; you reminded me to stand up straight; you taught me to be independent; you taught me ladies can still tell a foul joke; you taught me to be honest; you taught me to love nature.

Mom I read a poem that conveys my thoughts. It went something like this
God looked around his garden and found an empty space

God put his arms around you and lifted you to Rest In Peace
Gods garden must be beautiful
With you in his place.
Love always, your daughter

I close my eyes and I see
All the memories that I have of you
When I sit and relax
I will find
Your still there inside my mind
I cry for you, and now your gone
For your in a land of song
Where there is no pain or fear
I try to dry away my tears
I will never think of you, Mom in the dark and cold
For you are no longer old
In a place full of love
Known to us as up above
You, mom will forever feel warmth, comfort and our love
I miss you and love you
Debra Vondran-Byrnes.

Vivian was my godmother. She had a special bond to my mom Edna. Vivian and I missed my mom for 29 years. It gives me comfort to know the two great ladies are now together. I used to tease Vivian that she was my favorite godmother. She would always say, you damn fool I am your only godmother. Then she would smile. Being called a damn fool by Vivian was a term of endearment! I loved her so.
