|Let the memory of nicholas truman be with us forever|
"I can't believe it's been 9 years already, cousin... I sure wish you were around... just know that you're very missed by so many! Love you!"
"Six long years without you and some days seems like last week. So much going on and with each special event or even the hard ones I think about you and wish you were here with us.
For such a short time with us, you left such a huge void. I can't hardly contain my tears each time I get to see Baylee and Lil Nick. They are so fun. They both have cute personalities. Baylee and I danced at Christmas time this year. She is so much like you. She wanted to hold back being goofy but when she finally danced it was with the joy only a child knows. Pure uncomplicated joy. Lil Nick and I partnered up to play cards. He was a bit shy and so stinking cute. When it got time for him to say Uno, it was barely a whisper. I told him he needed say it louder. His response, "I already did." He melted my heart. They mirror you in so many ways. You would be so proud.
I've thought about you so much this week with the birth of Kiley, Erin's
first. It's takes me back to when you all were so little. Those were the days.
We celebrated Christmas at Granny's old place this year and I found myself reflecting on many Christmas' past. I hope that our new generation will have a safe place to get together and play and create the memories we cherish now. Remember the trampoline and the chocolate and biscuits. Remember the uncle and aunts that loved you all beyond belief. Remembering playing in the bedrooms of that huge house and telling secrets like only cousins can do. How about the front fence and climbing it like monkeys or the pear trees in the backyard that several of you got sick from eating to many pears? We didn't take enough pictures. How about the egg hunts? Playing in the church parking lots when you were told to stay inside the fence. You thought Granny didn't know. Wink.
This week I've been blessed beyond my comprehension with Kiley Faye's birth. I'm still trying to pinch myself and see if I'm going to wake up from an incredible dream.
I hope Kiley has that closeness with her cousins like you and yours did. Shawna,Kara and Keli all have kids as does Josh and Rebecca. Shelly is so much a part of Josh's kids lives she might as well have carried them. She loves those babies so much. Chadlee and Charlee have there little angels. Justin has 3 incredible kids and Marcus has one on the way. The friendships and possibilities are endless. Exciting times but we miss you.
I wish you were here to enjoy this time with your children and our family but I know that God in his infinite wisdom has a much better plan.
I miss you Nick. I loved you beyond comprehension. It's a family thing. RIP."
"I miss him so much.. always happy with a smile. No matter what he was going through he always made sure people he cared about were happy. I really miss his singing and dancing... always cuttin up.. He is truly missed..."
"It has been 4years since I watched u drive away with a big smile on your face saying I love u mom your the bomb...ill cherish those words forever..I miss u son"
"WE MISS U SO MUCH...."
"FOREVER IN MY HEART...I MISS U SON"
"One of my fondest memories is of Nick and his cousins sitting around Granny's table in the kitchen eating Chocolate Gravy."
Have a suggestion for us?
