To all the family & friends of Mabel:
We had the privilege of being Mabel & Earl's next door neighbors only for about 2 years before Earl passed away and Mabel moved to Adams. For those 2 (fast) years, we came to know TWO VERY SPECIAL people and we were heartbroken when they were no longer living next to us. I will never forget their dog (Collie) named Socks (I think). He, too, was elderly when we met him but we instantly fell in love with him also. Thank you to the family for allowing us to share Mable and Earl with us for a short time. May their memories always bring a smile to your face, as they do ours.
"Those we love don't go away,
They walk beside us every day,
Unseen, unheard, but always near,
Still loved, still missed and very dear."
I unfortunately did not know you as well as I would have liked, but the times we did meet I found you so welcoming to someone you hardly knew. I know more of you by knowing some of your family and seeing your reflection in them. Your strength lives on in the wonderful family that you raised. Your physical presence will be missed by all but your spirit will live on through generations.
Your flame will burn forever in my heart and soul! I love you beyond words and measure Grams!
