"Hi Mom. I think of you everyday and will forever. Today is Thanksgiving and I wanted to tell you I am thankful for you. Here or not you are in my heart and I can feel you everyday loving me still. I miss you, I want to tell you so much. I want to just talk to you one more time. I want to hear your voice. Believe it or not I want to hear you yell at me just once more. You are the reason I am strong. Your the reason I stay sober everyday. I made a promise and I will keep it no matter what. I am thankful I had the two sober years with you mom, to show you I love you. I am going to joshua's bootcamp graduation next week and he is a marine mom. He graduates on your birthday. "I sure do miss you," today of all days i miss us getting together as a family and having dinner. I miss setting up for christmas with you and decorating the tree. I miss you a lot, It makes me sad to think about my kids crying like this when I pass but I know when that day comes I will see you again. Tell chris and grandma I love them. Happy Thanksgiving Mom."

"Hi mom. Its been four years and it still seems like yesterday you were here and we were talking at the table. Alot has changed since then you would be so proud of the woman and mom i have become. You know sometimes they say that " sometimes we have to lose someone to stay sober" well i believ that to be true but i just wish it was not you. So i had a little girl her name is delilah. Oh man if you were here you would be in love. Sometimes i think she is you coming back to be with me i kiss her all the time and think " this is my chance to be a good, responsible, and sober mother like you were. Joseph is so big now and joshua well you would be proud. You know i miss you everyday and cry when i am sad because i just want you to hold me when things go wrong but i know you are watching over me. I have kept my promise to you mom and always will. I love you mom forever..."
