"You would be so proud of the Lightning this year and I know you are watching from heaven. Every time Layne skates he reminds me of you and Delilah looks just like you and is very caring and sweet, all of the qualities of you. I am reminded of you every day in seeing them but I cannot put into words how much we all miss you. Love you forever, Mom"
