|Let the memory of Sebenna be with us forever|
"BAN!!! CAN YOU SEE IT ALL? I tread lightly knowing that you can...I miss you."
"I find myself thinking about you all the time ! I sure do miss you terribly Your always in my heart my friend"
I can't believe it has been 2 years.......we all miss you so much!!
We miss the family get togethers that you always had.
Love you, Val"
I know that you are looking down on us on your birthday-we happen to be in paradise, in Hawaii for our 40th Anniversary. When I see this beautiful scenery, I think it must be close to where you are. We miss you so much still. Having a mai tai for you..........Love Val"
"Happy birthday my friend - we love and miss u very much"
"Ban, a new year... I wish you were still here to share it with me. You are always in the back of my brain, heart, and soul. Enjoy heaven with your parents."
"This Halloween started with two big bowls of assorted candies for trick or treaters. Both bowls were left with nothing but Tootsie Rolls! Ban, I thought of you and wished I could have given you all of them!!"
"You are still alive in my heart and mind. I laugh at how comfortable we were to gossip, watch trash on television, and fart w/o having to say "excuse me" to one another. I can't wait to see your headstone... My heart is still saddened because I was given nothing to physically cherish from you. It is what it is. I MISS YOU!"
"my friend, it was just yesterday I was thinking about you - I was sharing with Ronnie about the time you thought there was a bird stuck in the engine of your truck. you convinced me and I did hear the chirping. We looked under the hood. It was about an hour later when I discovered tat you had a nature cd in the stereo on very low :) we laughed until we cried :) I love u my friend"
"Happy Birthday, dear Bannie! I have missed you so much these past
10 months since you left us. So many times I have picked up the phone to call, and when Timmy calls, it still shows your name. Your boys have done a fabulous job on your house-you would be so proud of them.
hope you are playing your piano and you are at peace. Luv Val"
"Even though it's a new year (2014), it still feels like your passing was the other day. Your memory I will always cherish. In fact, I watched that stupid show,The Bachelor, the other night just because I knew you would be watching it if you were still here on earth. I love you Ban and we shall meet again when our Creator decides that it's my turn too."
"NOBODY CAN REPLACE THE SPACE YOU FILLED FOR ME BAN! I can't help but be sooo mad because you should have been around a lot longer. What is it like Ban? Can you hear me? Do you see my tears? I wish I knew. I know we talked about it because I wanted to know where we stood at this very moment that I am w/o you. I hope you devour the lights and recognize your loved ones past and the present and I hope"
"I'm pissed that you are gone."
"I am lonely tonight and have so much going on in my life. Damn Ban, I wish I could call you tomorrow and feel better. Anyways, I miss you so much and still can't believe that you are gone. My eyes are full of tears; I LOVE YOU BAN."
"Ban, I miss your raspy voice, you calling my "honey", your advice about men, gosh, I could go on and on...My heart still feels like a piece has been taken out. You believed in me w/ unconditional love even when I was at my lowest in life. I am truly blessed to have crossed paths w/ you. BTW, Kim & Kanye had a baby girl that they named North West!!!"
"From the lines of the traditional song "Going Home":
It's not far, just close by, through an open door, work all done, care laid by, blind to fear no more.
Mother's there, expecting me, Father's waiting too. Lots of folks are gathered there, all the friends I knew. I'm gonna meet the friends I knew.
I'm goin' home."
"I love you Aunt Ban! I'm sorry I cannot be there today, I tried but things did not work out. I will be there in spirit. I will miss you but I know I will see you again someday! Love you always, Travis"
"We Love You Banny- you will be Forever in our Hearts.
Val, Tracy, Stefanie & Travis Ord"
"If tears could build a stairway
and thoughts a memory lane
I'd walk right up to heaven
and bring you home again
No Farewell words were spoken
No time to say good-bye
You were gone before I knew it
And only God knows why.
My heart's still active in sadness
And secret tears still flow
What it meant to lose you
No one can ever know.
But I know you want us
To mourn for you no"
Have a suggestion for us?
