I would have loved it!

Marianne Warner was a kindred spirit. When we were in the same place, we would gravitate, sit together and catch up. Before she even moved to Corona, her sister in law, Cindy, told me, she was going to introduce us, because she knew we would hit it off. We surely did. My only regret is not spending more time with her one on one. Now she is not with us any longer. She is my daughter in law - Julia's mom. I miss her. I know Julia and her family miss her so much more.

Yesterday was Marianne's birthday, we would have been Gramma's together. We would have shared a love for our twin babies. My heart wishes it were so. I know she looks out for us all from her perfect place in heaven. I know it has not been easy for Julia to be without her. I would have loved sharing our babies. I would have loved it, as I love her.

I love this post... such a tear-jerker. Sister Warner definitely deserves to be remembered on her special day. You all are in my thoughts.

Sure.. make me cry! and I think I only met her once.. But it makes me think of if it happened to me how sad and hard it would be. You are such a special friend, even though she is not here anymore, I am sure she is watching over you (and the babies- probably jealous you are able to be with them) I bet she sent them off before they came to this earth! Even though Julia's mom is not here, she is quite blessed to have you in her life! :) Love you my favorite woman and hope you are doing well!

I love you Sheryl! I agree with Shalece....I am very blessed to have you in my life. You are a HUGE blessing! I say this a lot but my mom was so right when she said that if I married Grant I would have the best mother-in law in the world :).

This was really sweet. Thank you Sheryl. She would have loved being Grandmas with you. You're right. You made me cry, too.
