You were more to me then my grandma you were my best friend the days don't get any easier with you gone. I wish I would have spent more time with you I'm sorry I didn't get the chance to say goodbye. I got a tattoo for you I think you would like it. I often think about the days I spent with you as a kid and I wouldn't change a single minute of it because those were the best days I could ever ask for I miss you dearly and wish I could have one more day with you doing your favorite thing fishing. I know your in a better place and free of pain thank you for everything you did for us you truly are the best person I have ever known I love you more with each passing day until we meet again my sweet angel.

My grandmother Ann Mullins was such a wonderful person who was dedicated to her family. I am proud that my mother Melissa Auxier named my middle name after her. I wish she were still here with us. I miss her already. When my mom called me to be there with her when she passed it made me realize more than ever how important family is. Grandma I love you and I miss you.

Aunt Fay:
You and your family are an intricate part of threads which have woven the tapestry of my life. As a single thread, we may not be strong, but as a woven tapestry, we are strong and can have many colors. We will miss you but will always have our memories.
