|Let the memory of Anthony be with us forever|
This past weekend was probably one of the worst in recent times. I thought about you and all our shared memories. That was the great part! Your favorite time of year has arrived. I have started getting out our decorations. I even have our last stockings you put up in November Thanksgiving night 2013. The tree will go up soon. Doing things slowly this year as I have a lot on my plate trying to get ahead. Words can't express how much I miss you. I have to be at work in a few hours and here I am writing you at nearly 4 am. It isn't the same nor will it ever be the same. The best way to describe is when you went away was it left an open sore on my heart/that void so too speak. Since then the wounded heart has healed a bit but at times it seems like it was just yesterday. Those are the hard day's. I cherish this time of year as we loved taking time out to decorate together, bake cookies, and load Cali
and Sammy up in the car to go drive around and see Christmas lights. You never will be forgotten. I still live every day with you in my heart. I talk to you often. I do believe in my heart you are still around. I do not think you will ever leave spirituality because you have shown me too much for anyone to tell me otherwise. I will say not to have you here to hear, to hold your hand, go to dinner with, watch television, our cookouts, planting in the yard, and listening to you snore like a freight train. I miss those things. Those small things I miss. Those small things are just as important as the large things. I am and always will be so proud of you. 2013 even though you didn't see it through.....you were so close. You overcame so many obstacles. Before our vacation in September you graduated your first 6 months at Midtown in June and had started your second round of recovery upon returning home from Florida. I remember talking to your counselor at your services and she verified you were doing so amazingly well with your classes and she had mentioned how happy you were to receive that certificate of recognition because you wanted to share that feat with me and your family. We are and always will be so proud of you! You were doing it! Those closest to you know what you went through. We know where you were and we saw how far you came. We all miss you."
"I did not know you very well but every time we got together with your Mother and Sister it was a real pleasure. I know they miss you a lot and I hope you have found peace.

"Happy 48th birthday, my son. You truly are "gone too soon." However you are always in our hearts. I'm sitting here with your pictures all around remembering your smile, your laugh, your hugs, and the sound of your voice when you would come in the front door and say, "hello.....". Life does go on but with a big void. Nothing nor no one can ever fill your place in all our lives.
This was your favorite time of year as you couldn't wait to put up your Christmas lights and decorations. I remember you telling the story of seeing your dad roll your new bicycle down the hallway on that Christmas Eve in Greenwood so long ago. That only seems like yesterday to me. We will be thinking of you this Thanksgiving and Christmas, and I know you will be us in spirit. Hopefully you can give us a sign.
I love you my son and I know I will see you again someday. Continue your good work and come visit momma when you can. Love you and happy birthday."
"Hi Baby Boy,
It's been one year today since you went home to be with God and our loved ones who passed before you. I spent the evening with your sister and we talked about our memories of one year ago. She is going through a bad time right now, so I ask you to watch over her. I've been told you are doing good things right now in working with young people and animals, and I do believe that.
We all still miss you terribly, and I don't think that will ever change. However, we do realize you are in a place far better than this mortal life. Watch over us and visit when you can.....I'm still waiting.
I love you, my son.
"Happy birthday in Heaven Tony all our love Jason and your babies."
"It was so strange having Easter dinner with Mom, Clark and Jason and you weren't physically there; however, I know you are having such a wonderful time where you are now. Love you and miss you!!!"
"Happy Easter to my beloved son. Even though I know in my heart you will be with us in spirit we will still miss you. Momma loves you."
"Happy Easter in Heaven. I know it must be beautiful there year round!"
"Love forever and always!"
Have a suggestion for us?
