Grandma Scheer, Even though I only got to see you every once in a while, it was still always fun to come and see you. The loooong ride was always worth the wait.

I am very thankful to have known you, and although i only met you one time it is quite obvious by the love and warmth of your family that you were and still are a very remarkable person. You will be truly missed! My prayers go out to all your friends and family that will so deeply miss your presence, but hopefully will find comfort that you are in a better place now. I pray that the pain & grief of your loss will soon fade & be replaced by fond & loving memories that will last forever! You will be truly missed & have been a blessing for all that have known you!

Paula Markert left a message on April 6, 2009:
Mom, It has been one week now since God called you home, and yet I keep wanting to pick up the phone to call you and say "hello". My heart aches with unimaginable pain and emptiness. I never imagined my life without you in it. I will cling to every memory, every thought, every vision of you forever. The peace I find lies in knowing that you have "crossed over" and are in a beautiful place, preparing it for us. Until we meet again, I will sing this song in my head: Mama thank you for who I am Thank you for all the things I'm not Forgive me for the words unsaid For the times I forgot Mama remember all my life You showed me love, you sacrificed Think of those young and early days How I've changed along the way And I know you believed And I know you had dreams And I'm sorry it took all this time to see That I am where I am because of your truth I miss you, I miss you Mama forgive the times you cried Forgive me for not making right All of the storms I may have caused And I've been wrong, dry your eyes And I know you believed And I know you had dreams And I'm sorry it took all this time to see That I am where I am because of your truth I miss you.....I miss you Mama I hope this makes you smile I hope you're happy with my life At peace with every choice I made How I've changed along the way And I know you believed in all my dreams And I owe it all to you Mama ......-Il Divo

Mom, As Mother's Day approaches, I find myself feeling yet a greater sense of loss. I've never "not" had a mother. I've never "not" bought a card or gift. I've never "not" called you to wish you happy Mother's Day, or gone to dinner. Thank God for Bob, or I wouldn't know how to "not" be a daughter. I love and miss you more each day. A Death Has Occured (Author Unknown) A death has occurred and everything is changed by this event. We are painfully aware that life can never be the same again, that yesterday is over, that relationships once rich have ended. But there is another way to look upon this truth. If life went on the same without the presence of the one who has died, we could only conclude that the life we here remember made no contribution, filled no space, meant nothing. The fact that this person left behind a place that cannot be filled is a high tribute to this individual. Life can be the same after a trinket has been lost, but never the same after the lost of a treasure.

Grandma I thought it would be easier once I got home. I guess it it will never be easy to realize U are gone. I will miss u so much. When U were here U were so far away but yet only a phone call away one I did not make often enough. I know u dont look bad at me for that but that u will always look out for me. U will always be over my head directing me in the right way. U helped get me through things nobody new about or would understand. I will miss u so much and will see U again some day. Say Hi to Ian for me. Love U Always Grandma, Holly
Peace of mind is a call away. We're here when you need us most.

Mom, It's been two weeks since God needed you with him. I still haven't figured how to live without you in my life. I relied so much on your guidance and advice and am so lost without you. I tell myself that you are on vacation and will be back soon but reality always comes back. I look over at your desk at work and picture your happy, sassy face sitting there and miss you so much. I have never experienced such pain and emptiness. I am so sorry for "dumping" all of my problems on you and causing you to worry so. You always said "That's why I'm here" and never complained. Not being able to pick up that phone and call you anymore just doesn't seem real. I am so thankful that I was fortunate to have you for 47 wonderful years but somehow feel so cheated to have lost you already. Not only were you my Mother, the best Mother anyone could ask for, you were my best friend. Please help me to learn how to live without you. I cherish each and every memory and will hold them and you close to my heart ALWAYS. God Bless You. I'll love you forever and never forget how special you are!! Love, Connie

Mom, It's just a little past midnight, May 13, Mother's Day. The reality of you not beimg here physically still doesn't sink in. It's like I can feel your presence, feel you watching over us but still am so lost and empty without you. How do I celebrate Mother's Day without you???? How do we live life without you in it?? Everyone says it gets easier with time. I don't think that time will ever come. I guess if you weren't so important and I didn't love and miss you so much it wouldn't hurt so bad. I should be thankful for the pain and emptiness because that just goes to show how much you mean to me but that just makes it hurt that much more. I think of all the good times and your laughter & smiles and will keep all the memories close to my heart. Thank you for being my MOM I have been truly blessed. We all have been truly blessed. Please watch over all of us and help to keep us safe and sing to your hearts content with that beautiful voice of yours. Teach the angels to sing and I will be listening. Until we meet again in Heaven, Happy Mother's Day Mom. Love, Connie

THANK YOU for Bob, he sure is a very special guy. Thank you for being my mom.
