Mother and Daughter “It’s a special bond that spans the years.  Through laughter, worry, smiles and tears, A sense of trust that can’t be broken, A depth of love sometimes unspoken, A lifelong friendship built on sharing, Hugs and kisses, warmth and caring, Mother and daughter, their hearts as one - A link that can never be undone.”  By Unknown.

Mom, You will always be my very best friend!  There will never be a day that goes by that I don't think of you and smile!  You made this life of mine so much brighter each day you were in it!  Watch over us all with Dad and Zeb until we meet again!  Love, Brande

I am so sorry for your loss. My heart hurts for both you in the loss of your grandmother and mother.
My thoughts and Prayers are with you. May you find comfort in your memories and in that she is at peace.

When I must leave you for a little while,
Please do not grieve and shed wild tears
And hug your sorrow to you through the years,
But start out bravely with a gallant smile;
And for my sake and in my name
Live on and do all things the same,
Feed not your loneliness on empty days,
But fill each waking hour in useful ways,
Reach out your hand in comfort and cheer
And I in turn will comfort you and hold you near;
And never never be afraid to die,
For I am waiting for you in the sky!
