  1. I never thought this day would come. After my 14 years of being on this earth, I realize that life doesn’t wait and death doesn’t care. So live everyday like it’s your last. Because you never know when it’s your last chance to say goodbye or goodnight.
    This wonderful woman took care of me when I was just a baby. And so many years have flown by and now this day has come and we just have to hold her in our hearts and remember Grandma for the amazing and strong woman she was.

  4. I can’t put into words how much I will miss the woman I called mom.
    She was my mother, my confidant, my best friend and will always hold a place in my heart.
    In the past week or so since she has been gone life has been a bit of a blurr.
    But I get through each day with beutiful memories of all the good times
    I was able to share with this wonderful woman.
    It’s incredible how even the littlest things remind me of her and make me realize just how lucky I was for her to be a part of my life.
    Mom you will be so dearly missed until we meet again on the other side.
    Love you always and forever
    your son Danny.

  5. Mom, my love and respect for you will never go away. It is because of you that I have turned out to be the woman I am today. I still hurt so bad, there are no words that can help that go away. Throughout my life you have had such unconditional love for me and because of that I have beat alot of really bad demons. I really still can’t believe that you are not coming home. Each day I will still ask you for some of your strength that has helped you get through hard times. I know you are still with me. I miss you so very much and I am just so proud and honored to be one of the daughters of Gladys Kennedy Kerr Tait. I will never know another lady like you mom!!!!! Love you.
