IN MEMORY

TARA MAE KELLEHER
4/11/77 — 9/4/06
AND
SEALLY MAE WALLACE
2/22/02 — 5/17/14

Hi Tara Mae and Seally Mae. I trust both of you are healthy and doing well!
As you know, Tara Mae, Seally Mae is now in heaven with you. You loved Seally Mae and she loved you very, very much. I know you remember when I called you and told you that I had given Seally your middle name “Mae”, and I remember how you laughed and how proud you were. I also remember when you came into our condo and you were so proud that you had realized that you had seen that Seally had a burr in her foot and you had removed it. You always wanted me to give her to you — but I couldn’t (wouldn’t). Obviously though, God finally gave you your wish. So, now both of you take care of each other and have fun!
You are also aware that the three of us are moving to Portland, Oregon — yes, the three of us. It’s both exciting and scary, but with both of you with me, it should be terrific!
I felt that the picture taken in South Padre Island was appropriate as we all had so much fun there.
I love both of you very, very much and as I am each day a little older yet, the time shortens until we are 100% together again.
My eternal love to both of you,
Tom Wallace

IN MEMORY

HARLEY COX
6/28/37 — 7/29/11

Dad,
It has been three years since
you passed from this life, and
we miss you so very much.
Now you have your youngest
with you and we miss her too,
but are glad that you are both
resting together. She told me
that the two of you would be
getting the place ready for the
rest of us. I hope that is true,
but I wish that you both were
still here with us, happy and
healthy. You are always in our
thoughts and forever in our
hearts, till we are together
again.
Much love always,
Your Family

IN MEMORY

SHERRI SHEA
1/12/66 — 7/15/12

What if the brilliant,
twinkling stars
that bring the dark night sky
to life
are windows looking out
of heaven?
And at the very moment
when we’re wishing on
those stars,
hoping that the loved ones
we have lost are happy,
safe and free…
maybe they are looking at those same stars
from the other side,
making the same wish for us…
sending us all their love.
Sadly Missed By
Friends & Family
