"Hi Chris,
Just wanted to send you a note today. Have been thinking of you often. Especially on your birthday. I wasn't able to go to Owen's 1st birthday party but heard it was good. Joel and Devon did make it.  I hope you are showing Ed the ropes. Mom is having a rough time with Ed gone. If you can please check in on her. Give her your guiding hands. She still blames herself for you not being here.

We finalized the adoption with Zackary.  Finally we both have the same number of kids.... lol. I wish Atticus, Zackary, Owen, and Jazmine was able to meet you. You would of had a blast with them!!  Love and miss you tons!!  Hugs, Little sis"

"Hey Dad.
A angel just made his journey towards you this past week.
He left us so early just like you. but yet so young.
Please show him the way to the other side.
Today was his service.
I only had a short 8 months with him but he impacted me very hard.
He taught me to enjoy the company you have, and forget about whatever else is going on. He was a true inspiration.
I love you as a brother Zachery Marvin Helms. We will meet up on the other side G.
You Let Me Know - Zach H. R. I . P
And I know you are with me right now helping me. I miss and love you dad, nothing can change that. Just waiting for you to scare the shit outta me(:"

"Hey Bro,
Just wanted to check in. It's been crazy down here. As you know Jeremiah is up with you now. I know I don't have to ask but take care of him. He is missed so much down here. I bet you, Dad, Grandpa, and Grandpa Schmidt are having a blast with him. I can just see all of you in my dreams having fun, being outside, doing "guy" things.

It's a daily struggle for me learning to cope with his loss.  I really do not understand why he was taken from us at such a young age. But I do believe he knew he was  deeply loved so much and knew how to love so deeply that he was called back to be our guardian angle. I also deeply appreciate how Jeremiah was sent to us in a form of a butterfly when we first arrived at the command center on June 18th. I knew when I saw that butterfly it was something special. Thank you for helping him. I truly believe Jeremiah comes around to check in on us as a butterfly. It's not every time I see a butterfly but when the butterfly purposely stays around me for a period of time. I know he was with us during his little's sister to be, Jasmine's, baby shower. There were so many big and beautiful butterflies there!!

I'm glad Jasmine and Jeremiah were able to meet before she comes down next month. Please watch over her and protect her as I know you will. Thank you, Daddy, Grandpa, Grandpa Schmidt, Nana, Grandma Kinkaid, and everyone for guiding Devon during that horrible day and giving him the strength to endure the flood and hold on. I don't know what I would have done if I lost both of them. Also PLEASE continue to watch over Devon. I know he's struggling with this. He's always believe he could do anything and that he was invincible. He survived but wasn't able to save the most important person to him. I worry that he may not be able to deal with this. Please guide him and help him as he starts to allow himself to heal. Help him realize it wasn't his fault.

I love you Chris. I miss you and wish you were here. Big Hugs and kisses!
Sis"

"Chris, my best friend and the best man at my wedding, I've been looking for you and today I found you. I can't believe you are gone. I can't stop crying. We've got a lot of catching up to do, my friend. I got a wife two daughters and a cat, lol. My oldest is 24 and a nurse and my youngest is 22 and just received her associates of art degree. She wants to be a social worker. Oh, guess what? I got a 72 dodge dart with a 451 stroker in it. It's BAD ASS!! Feel free to come for a ride anytime buddy. Oh and i have a 71 dodge charger also.

"Hi Chris,
Just wanted to let you know your grandson was born yesterday evening, Owen Gregory Schmidt. He is so cute!! He came in at 8.9 lbs and 21.5 inches. A big baby just like his grandpa. You would be so proud or I should say are so proud of him. Thank you for helping Mary have a good delivery! When you get a chance look in on Jake. He is so proud to be a Daddy!!  I know he is going to be a great Daddy!!  
Always thinking of you!  
Love your little sis!!

"Hi Chris,
It's been 3 years now. You are still in my heart and thought of everyday!! Jakob is going to be a Daddy soon. The baby is due today. It's supposed to be a boy. If it's born today, they will name him after you. If not, then his name will be Owen Gregory Schmidt.  You would be so proud of Jakob. He has almost finished his high school diploma. He should be finished in May. He is also working two jobs!! He's going to be such a great father.  I hope you can see all that he has done!!

Joel and I adopted a son this past July, Atticus. He reminds me of you in many ways, especially his eyes.  I look at your baby pictures and compare him to yours.... He is just a smaller, thinner version of you with blonde hair.  You would love him so much!!  We are also going to find out in January if we get to adopt his brother. I'm sure you know we also have twins who turned 1 today. If you have any pull with the man up there, please put a good word in for us to be able to adopt all three!!!

I love and miss you so very much!! You will always be a part of me and my life. Don't worry, Jakob is doing great and I will always be there for him, Jon, and Savannah.

Love you!
Your little Sis!
xxoo"

"Hi Chris,

Today would have been your 48th birthday. I sure do miss you. I was in SD over the weekend for Grandma's K funeral and was able to spend time with Mom, Jon, Savannah, and Jake. Before I left to come home today, Jon and I sang you Happy Birthday. I know you were with us listening.  Jon kept talking about you and reminding us it's your Birthday today.  

Love you and miss you lots!
Always,
Your little sis"

"Hello my sweet baby boy,  I miss you just as much as I did 2 yrs. ago.  Sometimes I just don't know what to do.  My heart aches for you. I want to talk, hold, kisses and just be with you.  I still feel so guilty I was not with you when you left us.  I want you back, so I can try to make things good for you and your family.  I just can't take not being able to talk to you and hear your voice, or hold you.  Please try to watch over Jakob, he is having a very hard time.  La La won't talk to me.  I wish their was some way you could show her I was not trying to hurt her, and I did not lie to her.  Please watch over them, and help them.  Jon is having a hard time as well, but Im doing my best to make is life as good as it can be with out you. He cries almost every night.
I hope you are happy up there, and out of pain.  Some day we will be together again.  I love you with all my heart forever.  You are always in my heart and mind.    Love, your mother forever  XXXXXXX OOOOOO"
