Momma
I hope we did u proud. I hope we got it all right.
I'm trying to be strong like you said. So far.... but I cant promise anything from this point on. But I will promise to do the very best I can to be all you would want me to be in this situation.
I hope you know u were the best MOMMA I could have ever asked for. U was my best friend. My go to gal with all the right answers. I'm going to miss calling u and saying Momma will u make me biscuits or cookies and u would make them. Or momma is that storm guna hit us?
You would laugh and tell us to calm down. It was going around us.
I'm 55 years old and you still were making me Easter baskets and buying us Valentines.
I like to think we spoiled you to Momma not as well as James did. But we tried. You deserved that and more.
RIP Momma. I love you.. I miss you and I will see you again. Give my brother a hug and kiss for all of us. Love you Momma.

Message from Shelly Reed

Mother you should be here. this all still feels so unreal. But I've been so strong. You would be so proud. I've had a couple meltdowns I'm not gonna lie. But I miss you so much. But I won't let you down. I will continue to make you proud of me. I have soaked in everything you ever taught me. But I wasn't ready to let go. I still had more questions. There was still things I needed you to teach me. But most of all I still needed you. But I know I'm being selfish. And your body was tired and you just couldn't go anymore because I know I know in my heart if you could be you would be still here with us. You always told us you would love us until the last best in your heart and you did just that. We will be fine mother don't worry about us. And we are taking care of James. Although we might be driving him nuts lol he hasn't complained one bit. And your furbabies miss you too. But they are still spoiled as ever just missing you as well. We all miss you and love you so much. It's just so hard to let go. I will hold on to every moment and every memory as long as I breath. Love you always, the one that made you a grandma.

Message from Pepper May

I love you so much and miss you every day. Im having a very hard time with this as I knew I would. We brought you home today where you would want to be with James. I just dont know how I'm going to get thu this momma. I love you. Keep a eye on us all. You are truly our angel.
Love you momma

Message from zoie reed

oh granny, i’m not sure what we’re gonna do around here without ya but we will manage. you raised a strong bunch. you left a legacy behind. i don’t remember much of the day you left us, but i remember dreading walking inside because i wasn’t ready to hear my mom say the words “ i’m sorry baby, she’s gone” i wasn’t ready for that news to make me fall to my knees outside and scream, not sure what i was screaming at. god i guess because i was so angry, angry that he took you too soon. we weren’t ready for you to leave us. there will be an emptiness in the stands at the chili supper wrestling showcase, but i know you’re watching and screaming from heaven with billy. i know you were in so much pain, i know you were so tired. you faught your battle. and i don’t consider this losing. i consider this a victory for you, because you are pain free, no more hospitals and no more medicine. you’re with your baby boy. i know if you could be with us you would. but it’s not fair. it’s not fair and that sounds selfish but you should be here. we weren’t finished yet our story wasn’t over. i miss you. i miss you. i miss you. and i’ve said it a million times but i know it won’t bring you back but i wish it would. because we need you here. i’ll continue to cherish the happy times, although you will miss out on some, my first day of high school, my 16th birthday, wrestling, prom, graduation, and watching me fall in love. but you’re always with me, through everything, even if it’s spiritually. i love you granny. i promise i won’t let everyone fall apart too much.

love, zoie<3
