They say there is a reason, they say time will heal, neither time or reason will change the way I feel. On our wedding anniversary I love you still and death is powerless to stop me.

Dearest mother, I love you and will never forget our times together, rest on mom.

To My Loving Mother...Mary Ruth The love you bestowed upon me was what I loved about you. You taught me soo very much. The tears I shed are happy tears because you always loved all of us equally. I know you’re looking down on all of us.

My Mama, My Mama, My Mama!!! There are no words to describe my feelings at this time. You put on a long hard fight for all of us. You won Mam. You can rest without any worries. Love you lots.. #4 God saw you getting tired, a cure was not to be. So He put His arms around you and whispered, “Come with me”. With tearful eyes we watched you and saw you fade away, although we love you dearly, we could not make you stay. A golden heart stopped beating, your tender hands at rest, God took you home to prove to us, He only takes the best,

Mom, I don’t know what to say, this is the most hurtful thing I’ve ever dealt with. But just thanking God he’s given me 56 years with you has really blessed me. I will mourn you until I join you. 6

The bond between a mother and a son last a lifetime. Thank you for teaching me to trust and believe in God and always have faith.

Mom, I enjoyed every moment we had together. I’m grateful that you taught me the meaning of living life. As you continue to watch over me. I will do my best to make you proud.

See you on the other side

Sibling love knows no boundaries. Even the distance between Heaven and earth will never stop the powerful bond of brothers and sisters.

My sweet Granny, I’ve been waiting for days to write because I didn’t know what to say but I just wanted to say that you are forever in my heart and I’m going to miss the little talk and I’m going to miss your voice, I love you Granny.

Dear Granny, I miss you so much thank you for always being there for me with your love and wisdom. You brought so much joy to my life and I’ll forever cherish the memories we made together. You’ve left a lasting impact on my heart.

Granny, where do we start? We thank you for all the life lessons. You are the true definition of unconditional love. We remember all the greatest memories of what it was like to have a grandmother - a faithful one! Although this is not easy, we’re okay because you knew the Lord for yourself. No farewell words were spoken; there was no time to say goodbye. You were gone before we knew it, and only God knows why. You are now pain-free. We want to thank God for lending you to us to guide us on earth. Your love was absolute greatness, and we are forever grateful. We will always love you! Rest up, Granny, until the last trumpet sounds .

We thank you for your love and support. No matter how many years pass or how near or far we are our hearts are connected forever.

My love you gained your wings. You will be missed dearly. I will mourn you until I join you. Rest easy Baby Ruth..

We, the entire family of Mary Ruth Carraway, would like to express our sincere gratitude for your love, kindness, support and especially your heartfelt prayers during this time, we asked if you would continue to petition God for much more needed prayer as we navigate life without our beloved wife, mother, grandmother, great grandmother, sister, aunt, cousin and friend. - The Family ACTIVE PALLBEARERS Rodney Franklin Dedrick Franklin Kevon Dorsey JaCorrie Franklin Javarise Franklin Jeramy Franklin HONORARY PALLBEARERS Isaiah Carraway Woodrow Franklin Jr. Ray Franklin Alfred Wiley Carl White Lavarise Franklin Woodray Jones Franklin INTERMENT Lincoln Memorial Cemetery Dallas, Texas Repass: B Elite Venue 320 S.
