"2 Dec 2014 - Happy Birthday Des - I miss you so much.  I am sorry that the Chester City PA police did a lousy job investigating and preserving the evidence - so Michael Dorio walks free.  I promise that I will ensure that your life is vindicated and that justice will be yours one day.  My gift to you is my love; your gift to me is your life here.  My angel watch over me.  I love you.  Mom"

"To My Daughter, Desire' - I have to learn to live without your presence here; taking baby steps as I move forward; a different strength is emerging; Michael Dorio needs to be brought to justice for ending your life here.  He cannot escape the truth of what he did. Des, piecing this all together has been painful - yes I know the truth.  He is a very sick and evil being.  It will happen for you Des - the truth - he can't hide.  Love U Pooch - Mom"

"Des, today I swam laps for the first time since your life was taken.  I stood at the pool staring at the lane markers and I heard you whisper "Mom, do what you love - get in and swim."  I did - Thank you - I felt you swimming next to me.  I just don't want to leave you behind - your life mattered - its important that you will always be remembered and loved by those who knew you.  Love Mom"

"Dez; I love you so much.  You lived your life your way.  That I will always admire.  I'm sorry that I couldn't save you.  I brought you life and I will always remember that look of wonder in your eyes at birth.  You were the most beautiful baby ever - a beautiful child - a beautiful woman.  Your heart will forever beat beneath mine.  Love Mom"
