I love you mom, miss you so so so so much.

Sherri Arnold on May 14, 2017

My mom, my best friend, my twin. Every moment we had together we enjoyed each other immensely. Shortly after mom passed two birds were sitting on the corner of my shed. I thought how strange they are just staring at me for a long time. Of course I'm talking to them. One red bird and another with hair/feather on its head. I thought​ mom, dad. Seem like dad was saying I have mom now, she's alright. Then the red bird flew off, and the other went hopping around, finally resting on the bench she got me. I thought mom. And to find out yes indeed they were Cardinals. So Karen and I got a bird feeder so we could feed them. I hope to see you both soon. Thank you for everything. I hope you are having a well deserved happy mohers day. I miss you immensely, and can't wait to see you again. Love to you both, your baby sherri

I'm so sorry to hear of my cousin's passing. I enjoyed visiting with her when we were in Venice, and I remember from our childhood when she took me roller skating. Rest in peace, Marilyn. Love from your cousin, Jill

Your mother was a one of a kind woman, she was always there to help if she could and always had a kind word to say. Her passing is a great loss to family and friends, but a great addition in the kingdom of heaven where they have gained a beautiful angel.
