"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 ....."
"Miss our talks when the family would get together. How things have changed since you, my parents and my father in law are gone now.
I miss all of that. I know you are looking down on everyone. You would be so proud of your great grandchildren and what they have accomplished."
"Grandma Joan, little Brianna is now 12 years old! Can you believe it?! How she thrived with your giggles and smiles and love from a baby through 5 years old. And then you kept in touch with sweet cards! I hate that we moved away from the area. But we are joyful we still get to keep tabs on your loved ones. We hope you are smiling down on us am in heaven! Sending up hugs to you!"
"Miss you ....."
"Please watch over me Gram. I love you."
"Miss you mom and happy I always took care of you ......I have realized that raising children is not a guarantee that anyone will be around as you age . 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"
"I miss you Gram. I miss your smile. I miss taking you to WalMart."
"Happy Birthday in Heaven."
"Well Aunt Joan, 100 days Josh gets married. How are kids grow up so fast. I miss so much. Wish I could call you and talk."
"I live each day wondering how I will get through it and
then I remember that you would want me to"
"Miss you so bad ... Need you"
"I miss you terribly. My heart is very heavy. You would be so amazed by Sean Gram. I am sorry that I didn't take more time to spend with you. I wish I would have."
"Happy Mother's Day to you Gram. I have been thinking of you and missing you so so much lately. Love you."
"Happy Mother's Day to you. Hope you are looking down smiling on all of your great grandchildren's accomplishments."
"I think of you often Joanne and the many laughs we had around Jackie's table. I will never forget the day you came to pick me up after I was in a car accident during rush hour at Taylor and Jefferson. That was the type of person you were always willing to help people in time of need. Love you."
"Happy Mothers Day Mom , I miss you and I love you ....."
"I know I have not been here in awhile , so much going on I wish you were here with me . I truly am alone ... I miss you more than I ever thought possible you taught me yet another lesson , we are really alone in this world .. I need you here with me I am so sad and missing you . Love you so sorry that was not said enough ...."
"Missing you so much Gram. Wish you were here right now. Sean is graduating this year. Goodness you would be so so proud of your boy."
"Missing you Gram. Wishing you were here for so many things."
"Missing my greatgrandma today, glad I could enjoy some of her crab cakes before I leave though :) Joseph"

and maybe even my mom celebrating your new life"
"Been four years now mom, still miss you more than I can say .. Life just is not the same but I just keep moving on . I love you and miss you ."
"I miss you so much"
"Crab Cakes & gravy fries for your Birthday dinner... Happy Birthday Mom ,Love and miss you .June Bug"

"Gram, everyone misses you constantly. Wish we had more time. Keep a place warm for me. Love and miss you, Jerry. BINGO!!!"
"Gram happy birthday to you! Sometimes I still can't really believe that you are not here. We talk about you everyday and miss you. Tomorrow we will celebrate the life you lived here with us-your favorite foods are also some of mine and your favorite kids :). We love you so much."
"Thinking of you and remembering all your smiles and giggles and cards. Thanks for taking such good care of my baby Brianna-now almost 11! We send our love, hugs and kisses to you up above. Keep a watch on that great family of yours, too! Miss you!!!"
"We were having a party at our house and she brought along an elderly gentleman friend. He blended in with our family and seemed to have a really good time. A short time after, he passed away. I later thanked her for bringing him. It added to our celebration."
"Gram we are jamming to Alabama this morning and laughing thinking if you. I got the boys marshmallow eggs for Easter for you. We miss you so much. Wish you were here to laugh with us. I love you."

"Missing you terribly Gram--the tears have been flowing all night. Wish you were here."
"Miss you mom , Happy Valentines day ......."
"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"
"Merry Christmas Gram---I miss you"
"Love and miss you mom ... Merry Christmas"
"Hey Gram--it's been a while. I am missing you so much. Every night Tyler asks for your songs and he falls fast asleep listening to them. He has been resting well--I know you are watching over him. 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?! Please come see me Gram--I need you. I love you--please give Jill a hug for me."
"Hi Aunt Joan!
Thinking of you as usual. I read June Bug's note. Jill is with you now. There's not many of us left down gear. My mom and Dad, Sandy, Joyce, Beverly, Barbara and Harold, Paulette and so many have joined you in the pass few years. Tell Delores I said Hi! Happy Thanksgiving Aunt Joan I miss you and love you always DeeDee"
"Happy Thanksgiving .. I made very good stuffing today you would have liked it.. Your very good friend Jill has come to join you today I hope the two of you have a hell of a card game going on right now just as we did on so many holiday's... I love you and miss you .June Bug"
"Thinking of you is easy ,I do it everyday . Missing you is a heartache that never goes away ...Love and miss you mom"
