"Mom,
It's been 23 years today that your heart stopped beating and my heart broke.  Many things have happened in my life that I wanted to share with you, but you weren't here.  I know you are watching over me, I can feel your love.  I miss you, I love you and I know that you are happy, so now I need to be happy.  Keep an eye on me and guide me when you see me going in the wrong direction.  However, you taught me right from wrong, so hopefully your job will be small.  I love you, Sharon"

"Mom.
Another year has passed without you and it has been a rough year.  I think of you everyday and miss you with more intensity than ever. I would have loved if we had talked more and shared more, so many things went unsaid.  I know I didn't tell you that I love you enough, I guess I assumed you already knew.  It wouldn't have killed me to say it more.  I'm grateful for all the opportunities you gave to me, you made the 11pm trip to St Charles to pick me up after I got off work from A&W root beer, picked me up after all the basketball games, ran me to 4-H events and on and on. I don't think I realized what you were doing for me, I'm sure you would rather have been in bed sleeping.  Thank you for loving the twins so very much, they truly needed that love.  I think we competed in that area because I loved them so much too.  My heart has such an empty place where you belong, but I know that place will be filled when I am called home.  I love you Mom, to the back of the moon."

"It's been 21 years since I have seen your eyes, heard your laugh or just been able to talk with you.  You took a part of me with you that day you left, but you left a part of you here with me.  It's a part I cherish, it's our memories.  I remember being in the kitchen, you standing at the sink, me sitting at the table, us laughing or just talking about things.  I still talk to you about things, do you hear me?  I'm sure you do because I truly believe you are with me and guiding me back to the right path.  I'm sure you cringe when I mess up, but that's part of all our lives and I know you understand.  I love you to the back of the moon.  That's what Cayden says to me.  He and Adalyn are the adorable little red heads you would have loved with all your heart.  They are my great grandchildren, can you believe it, I'm a great grandma.  Funny how time moves forward and we want it to stand still so we can keep our family whole.  I know I will see you in Heaven some day, until then, hold my hand, my heart and my love close to you, I'll be there. Love, Sharon"
