    May the road rise to meet you. May the wind be always at your back. May the sun shine warm upon your face, the rain fall softly upon your fields. And until we meet again, May god hold you in the palm of his hand.
    I love you my Irish rose

  9. Katie Quartana Dykes

    My world has stood still since August 13, 2022 @ 9:32am when I got the call while you were gone on your “golden girl” trip. I’m trying to navigate a new life without you in it and it’s hard, you were not only my Mom but my best friend through everything. The world is literally dimmer without you in it. I’m so grateful for the 40 1/2 years I had you especially when I was sick and scared but I would give just about anything for you to come back. You were our biggest fan and protector and I’m going to miss you forever Momma, love you always

    Jeannie and we’re friends since high school. We played sports together and often went down memory lane. She was a wonderful friend and I will miss her.
