Condolence From: LOVE.
Condolence: So. This is it, huh. What to say for a woman as bright as a star and as pure as Jesus himself. She made everyone smile no matter what the time. She would never say goodbye only hello, and see you later. The words she spoke were always heartwarming and it touched me many times. I could say please watch over me and my family, or send me a sign, or always know I love you. But, the truth is I'm not. This beautiful woman knew how I loved her more than the sun, stars, and moon. She knew how much she meant to me, how much she shined brighter than anyone. I am always left without words when it comes to her. She left many speechless. Even me, words cannot describe who she was. How bright, kind, crazy, loving, badbutt, and smart she was. I could give thousands of lists of people's lives she's changed. She only gave, and continues to give. Even in her passing she gave us a time to come together, and she gave us even more reasons to talk about how much we loved her. I wanna say I want to go back and do things differently, or say things a different way. But the truth is we wouldn't, we would do the same things we did when she was here. We thought she had all the time in the world, so these little things like saying love you, or goodnight, or how was your day, or you're beautiful didn't matter. Not as much as they do now. I have to be honest I'll never find anyone like her, she was literally the definition of one of a kind. She will forever be in our hearts, but not as a memory, no she will be there as a strong, independent woman who touched everyone she met. I wrote a poem about her.

The day is gone, the deed is done
It's time to tell everyone
Time to say goodbye
Doesn't mean die
It means to fly
Fly so high, you can touch the sky
But this is not goodbye
I let out a painful sigh
And fly, fly away where all is bright
I no longer have to fight
There it is, the light
I love you all, please don't bawl
For I am not gone, but free
Free to fly
The day is gone...The deed is done

Condolence: The Broken Chain
Author Unknown

We little knew that morning
That God was going to call your name.
In life we loved you dearly
In death we do the same.
It broke our hearts to lose you
You did not go alone
For part of us went with you
The day God called you home.
You left us precious memories,
Your love will be our guide.
And though we cannot see you,
You are always by our side.
Our family chain is broken
And nothing seems the same.
But as God calls us one by one
The chain will link again.

We Love You Ginger

Condolence From: Tammy
Condolence: Ginger was like no other person I ever knew. Not even close. I plan to sit with a glass of wine, Godivas, and ginger snap wafers to celebrate her life. Those were her favorites. I plan to laugh and cry while I imagine her up there scolding Uncle Joe for running through her living room instead of sitting down to talk her. I imagine her telling him "every time you ran through my living room you caught me by surprise and scared the $h!+ out of me. Why couldn't you just sit down and talk to me, you @$+)! - give me hug." I know this cause she told me she would and I believe she will do exactly that. She shared that she would like to sit down over tea with her mom and have a conversation where she actually remembers stuff. While Ginger is up there watching over all of her children, grandchildren and her husband Joe, Ginger will also have all of that.

I pray the Lord heals the pain of all who will miss her and I pray for Ginger's Peace & Happiness.

When you each sleep at night and dream about Ginger - she is visiting you! When you wake-up, don't be sad, be grateful for that time and look forward to the next time!

I went away and have stayed away for a long time now, but please know I took all of you with me in my heart. My love and deeply heart felt condolences to all.

Condolence From: Ro
Condolence: Dear Mommy, I don't even know where to begin . My heart is broken and a piece of it will always be missing . Being your oldest child we have shared sooo many memories together. Some were tough but others were very SPECIAL!! Like you ALWAYS told me we have a SPECIAL BOND that no one could ever understand but WE did and I will always treasure it!! No one understood how I ALWAYS stood by your side for sooooo many years when you needed me most but it was that BOND. Without words being said I just knew in my heart I needed to be there for you... What we shared wasn't materialistic it was deeper. Making you my Maid of Honor was about that BOND we shared.. Our late night conversations that lasted for hours was about that BOND again. I will ALWAYS treasure our good memories together. Thank you for being such a wonderful grandmother to our kids....Thank you for calling them EVERYDAY for 22 years just to say goodnight and I love you.... Thank you for teaching me how to make family recipes that I will continue to make and pass down to my children to make for their families... Thank you for ALL the funny stories you left us that I will make sure my kids share with their kids .... Thank you for making Radio City Christmas show a family tradition the I continued with my family....Thank you for staying awake while I spent 12 hours with you in the hospital . We had breakfast lunch and dinner together and talked about EVERYTHING. We were both soo happy and there it was again that SPECIAL BOND ... I LOVEEEE you mommy and will ALWAYS keep your spirit alive ...I KNOW you're happy up there but don't be a stranger ...XOXOXOXOXOXO

Condolence From: Krystle
Condolence: Mom,
Not a moment goes by that I don't think of you. I feel so many emotions and angry seems to be the one that I feel the most. I know that you are not suffering anymore and I know that you are not struggling. I know it is selfish of me to want you back here. When you told me Sunday that this was your last week, I didn't believe you. When you told me to always remember how much you love me or how proud you are of me, I knew you were saying goodbye. You always refused to say goodbye to me and instead, insisted on so long.

I know that when you went to heaven, you were so happy, the happiest that you have been in awhile. I feel you with me most times and I wish that I could just have you back. Just one more moment to hug you, kiss you, to tell you about my day or to just hear you vent about yours. I ask myself often, why did this have to happen. The babies will never know what it is like to have you around, to remember you sneaking them things that I did not want them to eat. The twins won't have any memories with you.

I will keep my promise.. to remind my kids how much you love them, to remind them of the amazing mother that you were and to keep your memories alive.

I have no regrets, I was able to spend so much time with you, to talk about so many things, and to create so many memories. My only wish is that I knew you were actually going to leave us. I keep asking myself what would I have done different. The answer is, I don't know. That morning, when you called me and asked to talk to the babies,and kept telling them how much you love them I know you were saying goodbye to them. Why did I let you hang up. I had a bad feeling all morning, something didn't feel right.

Please continue to watch over me and our family. You are no longer in pain and I am sure you are walking and breathing perfectly. I bet they even love you up there and are enjoying every minute of you making them laugh. I am going to give it my all and make you proud. You wont be here to see it happen, but I know you are watching. I will make sure that my kids grow up strong like you have asked. I will make sure they never do without, like you have done for us. I will make sure that no one hurts them, like you have protected us. I will make sure to always remind them of what a wonderful person you are.

I am going to miss you, more than you will ever know. I feel like a piece of me in gone. I have never felt pain this bad before. I never knew it would feel like this. I am sure that I will never be the same but I know, I will never forget what an amazing woman, mother, wife and grandmother you were. Every time I look at my children, I will think of you.

Thank you for always believing in me, reminding me how strong I am and refusing to let me give up. Thank you for pushing me to become the mother and person that I am today. I have learned from the best!

You are the bravest person I know and your strength, love and giving heart will continue to grow. No one will ever be able to fill your shoes, but I will never give up trying.

Condolence: It's shocking to see my grandmother go so young, and very difficult not to cry. She was an amazing soul, and many people found her company to be great. From talking to her on the phone almost everyday to getting her various text messages sending pictures of myself, I know that she impacted my day-to-day life, and I'm sure she impacted many others as well. She was a great inspiration to me and my family, and she did so much for everyone in and out of the family. I'm saddened by her departure, and I wish that everyone heals, remembering the life of my grandmother.
