Memories Timeline


  1. Mom was never one to judge me. Always funny and full of love. I remember when we were teenagers she tried to tell Faye and I to make the most out of life while we could because we never know when the life we know will end. Will miss her quirks her smile and her hugs when I visit. 

  2. I love you mom! Watch over Paisley and Preston please. Until we see you again we will hold you in our hearts and memories
