Susie Whipple says
An angel lived among us,
A gift from God above.
She showered us with kindness
And shared with us her love.
She cherished every moment
With the man who was her life;
Walking hand in hand together,
Facing life with all its strife.
She loved her children dearly,
Each one a different way,
Nestled close within her heart.
Though, now, she’s far away.
She’s gone to live with Jesus.
But, she’s here with us, today,
Smiling down on every one of us,
And telling us she’s O.K.
We love you Mom and will miss you every day!

John Whipple says
Through all your pain you found the strength to tell us all good bye
The moment came, God what pain we all felt.
We got through the night and didn’t forget the hurt.
A week has passed and haven’t slept a wink.
A month will go by and it will still hurt
The pain we feel is because we will never forget.
Love you beyond the moon.

Aunt Barb, I have so many great memories of the things we use to do together with our families I will never forget how you and Uncle Monroe help me out with taking care of Lindsay and Amy so I could stay at the hospital with my dad before he passed away may you rest in peace and pain free. My sympathy goes out to your family. Sending you all hugs
Your great grandchildren are missing you so much.. As so am I . They always loved to visit you and Papa Moe whenever we got the chance.. I know you are living pain-free . And that is what eases my heart’s pain.. I will always have the special moments with you and share the special pics I am able to treasure in my heart forever . And I now stare at ” Teddy ” and I can picture you with him.. So happy to see his face everyday I get dressed becuz he still sits on my dresser.. I love you so much , Grandma . You’ll have a special place in my heart
