    I loved your mother and always remember how nice she was to me and I knew she loved me too. She will be sadly missed but I’m so glad she knew who JESUS was and she finally gets to see him. May God wrap his loving arms around her children and love ones at this time.
    Love Bruce and Brenda Kimball

  7. Mrs. West….

    When I take a moment to reflect
    On how you have impacted so many,
    I realize how I am truly blessed
    With the greatest gift there is;

    So many others are in search of
    The very thing we have,
    The very thing we share;
    Soulmates sharing a lifetime,
    Making memories to look back on
    And creating dreams to look forward to.

    I don’t know how I ever got so lucky,
    Or what I ever did to deserve to be so blessed
    But, I do know this;
    I’ll never take one minute we share
    for granted.

    You are the greatest gift of my life,
    And Know you will be greatly Missed!!

    I loved this sweet lady very much. Always smiling even when you could see she wasnt feeling her best. Love you Tracy, shes resting with the lord now. We shall all see her again if we walk up right before him. Looking forward to that day.

    Tracey and all of Ginny’s children and family
    I am sorry for your loss. I replay such fond memories of your family as I remember this beautiful woman. I loved her, she was always so nice to me. God bless and keep you all in this time of sorrow. Love and prayers with my deepest sympathy

  10. Sorry I don’t see myself personally able to be their, my heart is heavy and I feel the pain, losing a loved one is never easy, my body is in a breaking down mood, as I will not be able to attend my brother’s going home to the Lord, Pain is doubled and I wish the best to all.

    Farewell to the Queen of the West.
    I miss you. I miss visiting you. I miss just sitting. I miss looking out for you.
    But, I do not miss watching you dwindle. I do not miss seeing you suffer. I do not miss watching a strong independent woman becoming more and more dependent upon others. I do not miss wondering how you are feeling. I do not miss imagining how I would feel in your position.
    I ache that you are no longer with me.
    While, I rejoice to know that your suffering is over. I rejoice in the knowledge that you have fought a good fight. I rejoice in the knowledge that you are able to walk again. I rejoice in the knowledge that you are able to communicate again. I rejoice in the knowledge that you no longer have to depend on others. I rejoice in the knowledge that our Heavenly Father has welcomed you with open arms.
    I am grateful for the example that you have been to me.
    Farewell, my queen, my shero. I will see you on the other side!
