"2 years ago you left me.  Thought as time passes it would get easier but it hasn't. I remember this day as if it was yesterday and instead of getting easier it has been harder each and everyday.  The memories will never be forgotten.  I miss your laughter and hard times you give me on a daily basis.  when things go wrong here I am constantly yelling at you to stop making my day harder but who would you be if you didn't do this to me.  Kirsty checks up on me regularly and other jumpers stay in touch.  Continue having fun in heaven and one day I will see you again.  Love you and miss you very much."

"Rest in Peace. I love you and always will.   You will be missed and loved so dearly.  No matter how much we argued or disagreed it made our marriage stronger.  I know you are now my guardian angel looking down on me and the kids.  You can enjoy seeing your beautiful grandson when he finally arrives.  You struggled to make it to see the birth well now you can be with him anytime you want and protect him in the toughest times.  Enjoy your bowling and hanging out with Joe.  Just remember Crissi and Kirsty know you will always be haunting them when they are in tours.  So make sure you keep stealing everyone's oranges, getting captains drunk, and especially stealing Hewey's clubs in golf or better yet just throw him in the icy water.  Love you and will miss you lots."

"Craig aka Rip ... made me smile every time he entered a room. The fact that I never met him "in person" speaks volumes. Someone who could touch so many is amazing. He and Wendy (aka Mouser) shared their personal plight , but they never complained.
I would have never understood the power and significance of humans loving and caring for each other via a game site. But thru the years of being at home most of the time (caring for my dad) ... let me experience the joy of so many people ...whom otherwise I would have never met. Rippy is one who is at the top of my list!
Wendy ... please find solace in knowing that he is making others laugh in Heaven.
Kisses Risa aka Cora"
