    Carrie, I know you love your mom so much. All those years we knitted together I remember you talking about her so much that I felt like I knew her. I am so sorry for your loss.

    It's been a week since you've been gone. I miss you more than words can say. I know that you are so much better and breathing much easier. And I know you are glad to be reunited with Dad. It's just not the same without you. I know you are watching over me, and making sure I "keep my nose clean". I love you Mom!! Patsy

    Mom, I am grateful that you are no longer suffering. However, I'm sad sad I won't receive any more of your pre Jeopardy phone calls anymore telling me you couldn't talk until Jeopardy was over. Let all of our family members who went before you I say hello.
