To my daughter, the daughter every mother would dream of having...
Oh Clarice, on that day of your death, after saying my prayers that
morning, I always say a prayer for my family, the sick in the hospital and
around the world. When I think about how much you suffered without
saying a word. Whenever I asked you, "Clarice, how are you feeling
today," you would always reply, "Oh, not bad." That morning that you
died I could see in your face that you were suffering so deeply. After
praying for you, I thought that if only God would come to me in a dream
or in any fashion and show me the way to help you. But He eased your
pain in His own way. Fret not, my beloved daughter, for your sufferings
have come to an end and the joy has just begun because you are living
Your Mother always, rest on my sweet child.

To my loving wife... Clarice, we have been together for so many years.
We had so much fun and laughter. You have left and gone so suddenly,
you did not have the chance to say good-bye. On the day of your death I
was with you and I saw you leave. I will miss you and will always love
Your loving husband Cleophus

Clarice ... Today my heart is filled with joy and sorrow. I can't help
but smile when I think of all the good times, of so many good times we
have shared. Then my eyes get filled with tears. I finally realize you are
no longer with us, but glory be to God, you are at a resting place where life
is a bed of roses. Your spirit lives on while your tired and paining body
rests. Sleep on my beloved sister.
Love always, your brother Rudie

Clarice ... I didn't think that you would leave us so soon. I was just
getting to know you. I was privileged to have you as my sister-in-law. I
will walk on my porch and will not see you sitting in your chair any more.
I will look down the steps and you will not be sitting there any more. God
giveth and He taketh. He loaned you to us and He saw fit at this time to
take you back. Clarice, you are out of your suffering and you are free of
pain. Rest in peace.
Your sister-in-law Mariel and family

To my mother and friend ... Ma, please forgive me, because I know
that you don't want me to be sad or unhappy. But the thought of not ever
seeing you again, it just hurts unbearably. But the comforting part is that
you always told me in many words that you loved and cared for me more
than I could ever imagine. And knowing that you will suffer no more, I
want you to have a good time up there and just wait until we meet again.
Love always and forever, your daughter and grandsons, lone, Kenny and

To a person that I have had the privilege of meeting ... Ma, I am at a
loss for words. I have so many things to say, but again I am at a loss for
words. When I met you through your daughter lone, the first thing I saw
or noticed about you was that bright smile and friendly face, a smile and
friendly face that will linger in the hearts of many people for a long time to
come. Rest on, Ma, your work is done.
