"To live in hearts we leave behind is not to die."  -Thomas Campbell


"The day my mother went to heaven. It was a beautiful spring day the flowers were in bloom and the bees were buzzing. I went to for a visit and saw she was not doing well. All I could do was wait as time went by, I knew this was it.  As the tears came a sense of peace came over me and I knew she was in heaven." 
-Chris Anne Sondles
