"Mom , I miss you so much and I love you so very much ... I am alone now without you not a single family member cared enough to acknowledge me and the pain I am feeling on this day .... This is tough I wish you were still here to talk too. None of my children or grandchildren cared enough to say anything to me today, Its a whole world of people only pretending to care about one another ,when the truth happens no one really cares ... I have been there and done so much for my family and you used to tell me that I did too much you were right ... Jack misses you and says he loves you ! I love you and I hurt so much missing you ....."

So I am trying to teach myself to be satisfied with my own company . It is hard ...I have no children or grandchildren to depend on as things change for me I am sad and more alone than you ever were .. I love you and although I did not say it often enough I was always there for you and would give anything to still be there for you . June"

"Hi Aunt Joan!
Miss you everyday. I have no one to talk to or cry on their shoulder since you are gone. This has been not to good of a year for me.
My meds and rent are eating up most up my checks. I to tired all the time to work a second job. Josh spends his money as we need it. I walked off my job at BrightStar of 4 + years without thinking because I got pissed off at the owner. He wrote me a nasty email mocking my religion.  I got a new jobthe very I next week, but I don't get paid until the 27th. Which is only two days a way. The BrightStar owner decided not to pay me my last check he's making me wait, so I haven't had any money. As usual Mike won't help me because Mike is Mike and still bringing up about the student loan I signed for Nichole 9 yrs ago.
Josh is such a great kid. He told me not to buy him anything because it's not about the presents. It's about who you spend it with. Mike's dad bought Josh stocking with stuff for Josh and a professional microphone and headset to record with. Mike's family didn't buy me anything but that's ok because they bought for Josh and I really don't need anything. Josh bought me a soft blanket and a book. I love it. Mike didn't buy me anything but that's ok because I didn't expect anything from Mike. Tell my mom and dad I love and and miss them.
I love you and miss you to. Love DeeDee"

Today at Wall Mart I bought the boys your favorite that you always got them this time, of year. Chocolate covered marshmallow Santas! They will both be excited to find them in their stockings. Sean was just talking about them today in fact. We are wishing you were here to spend the holiday with us Gram. Your best friend of all time Jill was sent up to be with you and all of her other loved ones. I miss her too Gram--she reminded me of you always. Those were some good old days huh?!
