"Good Morning Mom today is your Birthday and you are 90 years old. It doesn't seem possible that in July you will have been gone for 10 years. I wish you were here I would have a cake for you. I am hoping that you and dad are together. He loved you very much and did till the day he died. I miss him so much. I miss you also. This here on this earth are getting really bad. There is people killing people all over the place. It is really scary. I remember you telling me that 1 day it will be the end of the world. Well I don't think that day is far away. I just hope that I get to see you and dad again and that you will know me as your daughter. I love you both so much. Happy Birthday Mom"
"Hello Mommy. I love you so very much, and miss you so very much also. .I am feeling a little down today! Haven't been feeling too good for the past few days. You and Daddy are my Angels in Heaven, watching over me. Thank you so much for all you did for me as my parents. Should of been better to you when I got older, and I think you know what I mean. I am so sorry I put you guys through that.I should of left Stan long before I did, then maybe I could of come to see you both more often. He was such an ass. well I will say see you at the gate, when I get to Heaven. Hope you both will meet me there. Love Patti"
"Hello Mom, it's your daughter Patti. still missing you, and loving you. Dad has been with you for a year today. I hope to see you both again and have you remember who each other are and who I am. Take good care of Daddy, as I know he is taking good care of you. He always did."
"Hello Momma, I wanted to take a minute and tell you that I am ok. I miss you and Daddy very much. As much as I love you I would never ask God to send you back to me, as this old world is about to explode. There is just so much poverty, people going crazy and robbing and stealing, and killing. I hope you and Daddy are Happy in Heaven. You are my Angels, and I know you are watching over me. Nancy, Shirley and Tommy are all doing well too. I wish I could just talk to you both again, and I do, but it is just not the same as talking to you face to face. I know we had some rough times, and I hope you both have forgiven me, as I am just so hard on myself over all of it. I wish I had divorced Stan, so I could of spent more time with you guys. I wasted so many years being away from you, and I am sorry for that also. Love you both, your loving daughter, Patti"
"Mom today it is 9 years today that you passed. Dad is with you and I hope to see you two again and know you as my mother and father. God made it so that I did not have any children, so that I could take care of you and dad. I am glad to be able to of done that for you and dad. Please take care of each other and know that I love you both dearly. Love your daughter Shirley"
"Happy Birthday Mom. I hope you are having a good one. Dad came to see you on September 29th 2014. I miss him so much I miss you also. I never new that it was going to hurt as bad as it does now that both of you are gone. When you passed I had Dad. Now I don't have either. I miss dad so much. I know in time the hurt will be less but love will always be there. Thank you for making me a part of yours and dads life. I love you."
"" To my sweet Mommy" Well 8 years has now passed since you left us. I miss you more and more every year that passes. I still talk to you every day. When I look at your picture I remember that sweet smile, and the way you laughed. You are always in my heart and on my mind. Mom, Daddy will soon be joining you so show him around and be good to him because we have sure loved him and Shirley has taken care of him and so have I when I have been up there. Pretty soon now we will be grieving over the loss of him, and still trying to deal with your loss. I lay a flower in your honor, and it comes from my heart to yours. I pray I have made you proud, and that you have forgiven me for things I did that hurt you. Hurting you was never my intention, as I loved you so much. I guess I just wanted your attention any way I could get it. Please forgive me if you haven't already. When God calls me I will meet you and Daddy, both of them at the Gate, and Grandma Phillips as well as Grandma and Grandpa Barnett. Your loving Daughter Patty."
"Well mom this is the anniversary of your death. It has been 8 years. I still miss you just as much. There are some days that I can hardly stand it that you are gone. I feel that you left us much to soon or maybe I just didn't spend the time with you like I should have. All I know is that I hurt. Dad is slipping slowly away. Please treat him like he deserves to be treated when you see him. He took very good care of you and loves you so much. I hurt for you but now I know I will hurt much more when he goes because he lived with me and I took care of him and he is the last parent alive. I love you very much and will always remember you. Love from your daughter Shirley"
"Happy Birthday Mom. This is a little late but I thought of you all day long. Pat is at my house and her and I said happy birthday to you together. We have been taking care of Dad. Mom I don't think that it is going to long and dad is going to be with you again. Please be nice to him as he took care of you when you were sick. He has missed you and wants to be with you again. Love him like we love you and him. I miss you everyday. I love you mom and wish you were here. God Bless you."
"Memories of you and I together are still front and center in my mind. We close as a Mother and Daughter could be. No one can take those away from me. Look down and be my Angel. Oh how I long to see your beautiful face again, and hear your voice. I miss being able to talk to you about things in my life. I wish you were here to meet the best man in the world, my husband, Richard Allen Dorton"
"You know Mom, when I am feeling low, I look up to Heaven and I know that you and the Lord are looking down at me. Could you please ask God to heal Shirley's illnesses? If I lose her and Dad then I will be all alone. The examples you set for us in our life's are sometimes good and then there were some that I disagreed with, but I love you so very much and always will. I have fond memories."
"You know Mom, every day that passes is a day I spend missing you. The sound of your voice, and the sound of your laughter, and even the sound of you crying, I hear in my sleep. Oh how I wish I would of spent more time with you and talked to you more. You didn't like Stan, and I should of listened to you. Well I found myself a real good man, and he treats me like a queen. You would like him"
"Mom, Shirley is really sick, and she and I need to hear from you. I don't know what will happen if I should lose her too. All 4 of us have turned out to be good and you would be proud of us. I know you arealready proud as you look down from Heaven at us. Shirley is not only sick, she is doing a great job with Dad, even when he is being an old fart. Yes he does know how to push our buttons."
"Mom, it's been seven years now since you left us, and I still can see your face. Your voice I no longer hear, and I do miss hearing it. Every single July 21st, I cry and mourn you. I love you Mom and alway's have. You are my angel in heaven now, and I know you watch over all of us. Please tell Daddy Kepley that I love him and give him a big hug for me."
"It Is going to be 7 years on Sunday July 21st since you left us. That is a long time missing you. I want you to know how much I love you. I hope that you will forgive me for putting you in the nursing home. Sometimes I have a hard time forgiving myself for that but I know that I could not take care of you at home and neither could dad. Please hear my prayers of forgiveness mom I love you"
"When things get me down about Dad I think about you and how much I miss you and I know that I will miss him also when he is gone .I just wish that you were here to talk to me. It has been so long since I heard you voice. It makes me sad. Mom please come visit me in my dreams you did for awhile but you never said anything I am waiting to hear from you. I long to talk to you. You are my MOM"
"Mom I just want you to know how much I miss you. There is not a day that goes by that I don't think about you. I cry each time I think of what you went through living with dad, you see he is with me know 24/7. He has been with me since Sept of 2007. He is a good man but he really knows how to push people's buttons . ( maybe they are just mine and your buttons) I love you very much miss you"
"Mom sometimes I call out your name in the middle of the night wishing that you were here for me to talk to. I need to be here with me so that you can tell me that I am going to be ok. I need that assurance from you. You always made things better. I feel so alone and am beside myself with all the things that are wrong with me. Ulcerative Coltis, MS and now Krohns. Please help me."
"Hello Mom well you sister in law Ginny just passed on July 27, 2012. She will be buried with her husband your brother. I am not quite sure when that is going to be as she is being brought here by her daugher Debbie and Son Inlaw Bob. We are going to be there Dad and myself and I am sure that you will be there by our sides. i love you and miss you. Your daughter Shirley"
"Well, yesterday was my Mom's 6th year, of her passing. I still miss her as much today as i did when she was alive. I guess i miss her more and more every day. My heart aches with every passing year, My love for this beautiful woman will never die, and i will hold her in my heart, as long as i shall live. I love you Mom, and that will never change."
"Mom, Shirley is not doing well! She has MS and 2 orther types of Auto immune diseases. Losing you broke my heat and when something happens to Dad, it will break my heart again. If I lose Shirley too, then what will i do?? I love all of my family, even though Nancy still isn't talking to any of us. She told jill she was particular who she spent time with. OK, I luv u Mom and alway's wil"
"she is missed and when i met her she was one person you will never forget. i love you grandma and god has you in his hands no more suffering and pain we will be with you again oneday soon"
"I love and Miss U grandma with everthing inside me!!U will Always be my special, Beautiful Angel!!!! U know everytime I see a humming Bird, or Hear A Owl, I think Of U!!!!"
"My first memory of Mrs Barnett is a funny one, my brother asked me to pick his girlfriend up for my sisters baby shower. I didn't know her and really didn't want to but he finally convinced me to do it. She made me feel like I was taking Shirley on a date, asked me all kinds of questions. But, so glad I did, got me a life long friend from that day on. RIP Mrs Barnett!"
"Mom I sure hope that all the pain and suffering that you have gone through in your life is in the past. It has been six years this July since you passed and I miss you more and more everyday. A day does not go by that I don't think of you. You are always in my heart."
"Mom boy do I ever miss you. Taking care of Dad has opened my eyes as to how time is so precious. I made you a promise years and years ago that I would take care of you and Dad and I believe that I have fulfilled that promise. I find myself talking to you more and more. I love you and miss you very much. Your Daughter Shirley"
"I miss you so very much, and it hurt to see the life drain from your body, and to hear you take your last breath, and i broke down. I just didn't want to leave you there alone. But we had to go so we could rest to be able to get through the funeral. You looked so beautiful, even in death. Leaving that cemetary was the hardest thing any of us had to do, as we were leaving you behind."
"You are forever missed and loved. When you smiled you could light up a room, when you were ill, you still were able to smile, and holding your hand and walking beside you made me so proud. Your beauty came from within as well as from outward, and i pray am half the Lady you were. I think of you often, and wonder why you had to leave me, but i understand that you needed to go,"
"She walked in Glory, She smiled bright as the sun, she was alway's there when i needed to talk, even after i got married, and now she walks in true glory with the FATHER. All my love forever, Patti"
"Too my Loving Mother, may you be at peace now and alway's remain in our Heart's! I know you and all your siblings and your Mom will be waiting for me at Heaven's gate. I give Honor to you Mom, as God has told us to do. I honored you as a child and i Honor you now in death. Wait for me as i will be with you again, as God's word tell's us. Don't worry Mom, we are taking good care of Daddy."
