Dear Memmere H,

Thank you for all of the time we spent together. Thank you for making me feel so special as a young child. Thank you for letting me sit in the front seat (when that was legal!) when we went somewhere and for playing games with me. Thank you for playing "black and red" ~a simple card game~ and dominoes (among other games) and having me sleep over. Thank you for buying me Peanut Buster parfaits from Dairy Queen.

Thank you telling me about my daddy as a boy and a young man. Thank you for sharing pictures and stories about your siblings and your childhood with me. Thank you for loving me and caring about me.

I am so glad that you were able to meet my son and husband because, like them, you are very important to me. I will miss you greatly Memmere. May you rest in peace eternally now. (11/06/2008)

Love, Karla (Kah-ler)

I am so sorry for the loss of your Memmere. You are so fortunate to have such great memories of her, and that she was able to meet your husband and son. May she rest in peace.
God Bless,

Oh Karla, I am so sorry to hear she passed. I have not been on the board lately. Slacker again....I feel like a bad friend!

That was truly beautiful what you wrote. Hugs to you and your family.
