To Gina and family, I'm so sorry for the loss of your mother as it's very hard to lose a parent at any age. I pray that God will comfort you through this difficult time. I pray that you have fond memories to look back on. She was a big part of my growing up years as her and my mother were friends as was Sharon's mother Beulah. May you find comfort in Christ.

Cousin Sharon was much older than me but she always took the time for me when I visited. She always had a smile and we could giggle for hours. Rest in peace my sweet cousin. Love you. Kim Mongan-Saladini

Mom, Its been a very tough week to say the least. I wake up every morning briefly forgetful to the fact you are no longer here. Then reality sets in all over again. You were always there for me. Always had my best interests. And most importantly, always made sure I knew you loved me. You were the greatest mother in the world to me. I'm so grateful I was able to tell you how thankful I was to have such a wonderful mother. You truly were my living, guardian angel. Thank you for being my mom and my dad. Please continue to look over me from above, as you did when you were here. Love ya mom.
