It has been ten long years since you left for Heaven. God has gotten me through these difficult years. Your daughters have been wonderful to me. Amber and Myra have been a blessing also. You would be so proud of all your grandchildren you have, 4 great-grandchildren now. Rascal is still here to welcome me home at the end of the day. He wags his tail and jumps up and down. He’s so excited Mom is home. We lost Aunt Mary this year. It has been a great loss. I miss talking to her everyday. I hope you, Granny, Paw Paw and Mary are playing dominoes in Heaven. We all miss and love you so much. One day we will all be together again. That day I know Rascal will wag his tail and jump up and down. He will be so happy to see you again. Until then, sending our love, Sharon, Rascal & Family.
