Linda, I am so sorry for the loss of your mom. You and your family will be in my prayers for comfort and strength during this difficult time.
You, your mom and dad enjoyed coming to the farm to visit and were always glad to see that my mom had made peanut brittle or pear pies. Those are good memories of a happier time. May you have peace and good health. Love you cousin
Such great memories.
I love you very much. My heart is breaking that you have gone. However, I know that you had a long, happy life and are no longer in any pain.I fondly remember when we were children chasing feathers that seemed so magical as the wind blew them in the air across the yard, and all of the many times we would use our imaginations playing with what we had back then, and laughing sharing the bond that only sisters can do. RIP until we meet again dear sister, I miss you so very much. I know Daddy, Momma, brothers, and you will be with me in spirit watching over me. I love you sis, Jean.
She loved you so.
I know that Uncle Carlie was playing the piano, and singing to you as you walked through those pearly gates of heaven with your youth restored. I always loved visiting y’all while I was growing up. I know that you have no more pain, and that your youth is fully restored. I know that you are happy, and at peace being with your love, and the rest of the Mann family that has helped prepare that special place in heaven for you. You will always be in my heart, and I love you very much. Until we meet again, your niece Monique
Beautifully written. Thank you
Linda, so sorry for the loss of your mom. I have fond childhood memories of holiday gatherings at the farm with Carlie Joe and Mary, Tony and Carlie, Charlie and Jewel and JW and Lucille. The warmness that only family can bring should always be treasured. Our thoughts and prayers are with you and your family at the most difficult of times.
