I will always remember my sister Donna for her fierce love of her family and dedication to our mom. She was adventurous and full of life and a true patriot to our military and country!! The lord gained a true gem of a woman when he called skeetie home. She will be missed more than I can possibly say.

To my grandma,
Thank you for all you did for us grandchildren and your own kids. Thank you for help start the creation of our family and make it a great one! I pray that God came and got you quickly and will allow you to wait on us when it’s our turn. I will miss you and I will think of you all along the way ????
Michele Valdivieso says
God saw your tired face
He then looked down upon the Earth and He put his arms around you and lifted you to rest
With the help of his angels they flew you to your heavenly place
He knew you were suffering, he knew you were in pain
He takes the best
He knew that you would never get well on Earth again
He saw the road was getting rough and the hills too hard to climb
He closed your weary eyelids and whispered
“Peace be Thine”
It broke our hearts to lose you but you didn’t go alone For part of us went with you the day God called you home.
Cindy Eddings says

Your Sister Cindy
