"Happy Birthday Son. No I don't remember how old you'll be at at 12:08pm this afternoon. But geting up there. I am just back from 6 days in San Diego to celebrate my 65th Birthday amoung strangers like I did 15 years ago when I went to Jerusalem to celebrate my 50th BD. I had a great time. Stilling missing you after all this time. I sometimes wonder how many grand-kids you would have given me by now. Most likely a boat-load of them. Most of the family is doing well and more are being added almost every year or so. We are excited that "Bre" and his little family is moving back home. He finally graduated. You'd have like Candace. She fits well in the family. Can't wait to kiss the "Prince". I love you son, kiss meme and moms for me."

"Oh.. Askia I think of you often..Can't believe it's been 17 years since you have left us. You were a wonderful friend and co-worker. For the 2 years that I've known you, you sure make an impact in my life. I still work at the airport and think of us often going for starbucks and chatting away. When I found out about ur passing a few days after you were gone my heart just completely broke. You had your whole life ahead of you and I'm always curious on what your life would've turned out. I'm sure you would've had a great one!! Miss you, my friend!"

"Good morning Som. Guess What? The Sea Hawks won the championship. 48 to 8 and it was a bLow out. The first 12 seconds of the game, they scored and it was all up hill from there. Even though i did not watch the game, I heard the neighbors upstairs yelling their heads like crazy. I can hear you now, remembering the games when you were yelling and hollering your head off. I can see you even now rooting for the home team. I decided to get you a "Hat" and put it with all the rest of your "Hats". I love you and think of you often. love mom"

Needless to say we have been wheeling from the loss, but Heaven's gain. I love You, Ma"
