I hope that heaven is a beautiful place as you are a beautiful woman, the 1st woman I ever met & the 1st woman I loved.

I just wish heaven had a phone so I could ring you & wish you happy Father's Day & hear your voice. As you were both mum & dad to me for a long time.

I miss you mum,  & love you.
happy Father's / mothers Day"

"I'll try and not be sad.
Cause you have given us peace,
And God has given you relief,
From the pain of letting us all go,
The hurt you faced we do not know.

I bet you are sitting with all the souls you missed,
You parents, sibling,  family and friends,
Have all come back to you again
Sharing the memories
Now, trying to hold back the tears.

69 you would have been today,
We are  truly grateful to have known you this long,
You taught us so much, time to be strong,
And to use this knowledge for good,
To help others who are less understood.

So as the day goes on and night falls,
We all treasure your love in our hearts
As we see your face, we will forever embrace
Your smile, voice and touch
Oh we all loved you so much.

So fly mum oh so high,
Just like the birds you fed,
And we will pause, light a candle for you
And take the time to reflect

On the many positive legacies you taught us,
Being the best we can be,
Standing tall and standing free.


As we find a way not to be sad."

"you left to quickly
and i'm still in pain
i miss u
i miss your  voice
i miss those days
talking to u was always a good choice

u were always so full of life
full of love and happiness
warmth and safety
i wish u were still here
i know that may seem selfish
but it feels  so empty
without u here

i still think of you
day and night
i still see ur face
hear your voice
inside my mind
and no matter what
i know that i will always love you
but i also know
that no matter what
when i think about that day
i know that the pain will never go away
until i am able to see you again

if i could turn back time
i would do it in less time it takes for my heart to squeeze through that pain
but my love goes strong
i long for those days
long for your story's
and i know that if i were to live that time with u over again
it will cause so much pain
but i will never hesitate

i miss you
i love you
and i always will
you will never leave my heart
you will never leave my thoughts
you will always be here
even if ur not"

"morning mum,

god i am beginning to hate fake people, you go out of your way to help people and all they can do abuse you.

i understand now why you had the fight with uncle robert on the sunday before you died, i am so over his shit too. he tells aleshia to contact him about the cabinet that was suppose to be mine, but going to her, she contacts him and he ignores her. i am really starting to believe that what you said about him is true, he is selfish and only thinks about himself.

i know i shouldnt be airing out here what is going on but seriously if you were here i would talk to you face to face, not to upset you as that would be the furthest thing from my mind.

god i wish you were here and give me a BIG hug like you always did and tell me that everything will be ok.

i miss you heaps"

"mum,
today is 1 month till christmas and  1 month til your birthday, another one that i will be without you, i hate this feeling.

most people would think i never had a bond with you but you know yourself we had a special bond, but we never showed anyone.

i miss you so much, i hate not having you here, days like today are a example when no one is around it gives me time to think and remember the good things we done together. Eg i remember when you took me roller skating so i could learn how to figure skate, then one day you fell down a man hole, for years even to today i blame myself for that. i have never told anyone but that day was hard for me, still haunts me still today.

i love you and miss you so much"
