JACKSON - In loving memory of my Mom, Florence Jackson, who passed away April 26, 1997.
Thank you, God, for pretending not to notice that one of Your
angels was missing and for guiding her to me. You must have known how much I would need her, so You turned Your head for a minute and allowed her to slip away to me. Sometimes I wonder what special name You had for her. I called her "Mother". Thank the other angels for filling in for her while she was away. I know it wasn't easy. Her shoes would be hard to fill. She has to be one of Your greatest miracles, God, and I want to thank You for lending my mother to me.
Forever loved and deeply missed by your daughter, Anne.

O'NEIL - In loving memory of J. Amber O'Neil, who passed away tragically on January 16, 1998, at 24 years of age.
Dearest Amber, Our lives go on without you
But nothing is the same.
We have to hide the heartache
At the mention of your name.
We miss your wit and wisdom,
Your million dollar smile,
Your strength and inner beauty,
Your dignity and style.
Heavy are the hearts that loved you,
Many are the tears that fall.
Living our lives without you
Is the hardest part of all.
To some you may be forgotten,
To others a part of the past,
But to those who so loved you dearly,
Your memory will always last.
Forever loved and missed by mother, Vivian O'Neil, step-father, Edward Grovestine, sisters, Sherry and Laure, grandparents, Robert and Evelena Hewey.

LANDRY - In loving memory of my father, Fred Landry, who passed away on January 16, 1992.
There is no parting from those we love,
No distance can divide,
For today in memories garden, Dad,
We still walk side by side.
Each dawning day, a thought of you,
At evening time a prayer,
And in the heart that loves you,
You always will be there.
Always loved and missed by daughter, Barbara, Lloyd and family.
