9/27/2008 - First off I want to say I'm sorry I could not be there for the services. It's not that I didn't want to be there. Rhea was a second Mom to us and put up with alot of our crap. I have so many memories of her that I will carry with me through the rest of my journey in life. But rest assure I will see you again in eternity. You will be missed and you were loved dearly. xoxoxo - Christy Washburn

9/18/2008 - Rhea, You will be missed. I love you! You were too young to leave this world. And although you are no longer in pain, the pain that your leaving has wrought will always be there. ~What is Death?~ Death is nothing at all. I have only slipped away into the next room. I am I and you are you. Whatever we were to each other, that we still are. Call me by my old familiar name. Speak to me in the easy way which you always used. Put no difference in your tone. Wear no forced air of solemnity or sorrow. Laugh as we always laughed at the little jokes we enjoyed together. Play, smile, think of me, pray for me. Let my name be ever the household word that it always was. Let it be spoken without affect, without the trace of a shadow on it. Life means all that it ever meant. It is the same that it ever was. There is absolutely unbroken continuity. Why should I be out of mind because I am out of sight? I am waiting for you, for an interval, somewhere very near, just around the corner. All is well. ~ Henry Scott Holland - Tori Brown(Cleaveland)

They Live OnThey Live On

   Those we love remain with us
   For love itself lives on;

   Cherished memories never fade
   Because one loved is gone.

   Those we love can never be
   More than a thought apart;

   For as long as there’s a memory,
   They live on within our heart.
