"Last evening (6/19) around supper time I was reflecting on our conversation we had 5 years ago. You were so excited & happy, you were looking forward to your new & up coming job. Things were starting to look up for you, you talked about buying a vehicle you had your eye on. Things were good. Then you went out to celebrate your good times that very coming. I was very proud & happy for you things were finally going your way." I'll be back later mom" But unfortunately tragedy struck. You never came back home and then you were gone from our lives. Everyone was devastated....Its been 5 long lonely years without your smiling face and your crazy sense of humour. But not a day goes by that you are not in our hearts and thoughts....I see your smiling face everyday and I know your watching over everyone.We all still love and miss you.............Love always and forever <3 <3 Mom <3 <3"

"well my boy we are now on Journal #5, its hard to believe it will be 5 years that you left us.  Today is also your dad's birthday, if he was with us he would have turned 67.  And with yours' coming up you would have been 27. holy that means i'll be 57. Cher's song  "If I could turn back time" comes to mind right now.. Still at times it seems like its all a dream and I still picture you walking through the door at any given moment.  especially when the cats sit there and look at the door like they are waiting....& waiting.... but no matter what all of the family there with you are all loved and missed very dearly.  So you's guys are always on our minds and in our hearts.  Miss you so much at times but I know that your living on in others so that's what keeps me strong. we'll be out to see you soon.. Love always and forever......<3 Mom <3"

"The Tree of Life Ceremony is coming up again on Monday,June 13th 2016. As usual I/we will be in attendance in honor of Rob, hopefully they actually give Mykey his day off for then. I just RSVP"d the Transplant Manitoba that we would be there.
It warms my heart that he goes on living in at least 7 others. Knowing he lives on in others keeps me strong. Love you always and forever my son.<3 love Mom <3"

"Wow...4 years has passed by.....
I know its been a long time since I been to your pages in some quite time lets see what's been going down...Not much some radical changes, these times and days get sometimes hard and what really grinds my gears is that FUCKER gets out next month so I heard, and with the media prints life for life all the while your killer is about to walk free such bullshit!
I been kicking myself in the ass for the past weeks such as the things I should of done and what was fucked up about it the things I planed would of worked just recent I could of been down in Minneapolis for Monday Night RAW for the Undertaker and Brock Lesnar encounter and flew out there go to the event, attend, leave, airport, customs, plane, be back in Winnipeg after the event, or road trip there and back, BUT no passport renewed or full license yet (they're be other times for a spur the moment flight) and I could of said I did that! dang!!!
Also a few few weeks ago, our buddy's car happen to rip me off when my wallet fell out of my pocket, it was found, returned but taken advantage of, you win some, you lose some and lose respect and damage bridges crumble but can be fixed depending on fixing the road .
Beatlejuice, Waldo, Padre, Joe Jesus Jr., Houdini, Misery, too many to name we all know choose his destiny and to be a missionary on the streets and praising the lord almighty and with his demons and yet we finally got him out the house, but he keeps coming back and yet stalks me at work well you see, you know.
My hours at work have been totally slashed down to 5 hrs well 4.98 to be exact this week so I went out to apply for work downtown dropping off resumes (fingers crossed) and refixing renewing my resume up too!
I know I said I'd come see you out in Scanterbury with all the other family but getting a ride out there is somewhat troubling with other people's work availability. No worries soon I'll get what I need down the road.
It was total shock that what happen to Baby Kyle this past summer for a few moments I seen him at the Red River Ex and fast forward a few weeks later the tragedy hits home. A few days later I heard some stranger came to our niece (didn't know each other but delivered a message) and told her not to worry your uncle and grandfather have him so we know he's being taken care of. Love all of ya and miss you's RIP my family see you on the other side...some day!"

The Memories we shared together will always be here with us its just something that we cant and wont let go of. Im gonna cut this short before i get all sappy. Miss you little buddy thinking about ya all the time, and I've never told you this before you went (undertaker mode)on me, I LOVE YOU Robert Rourke.

Really do come true"
