"Well Sissy, another year has passed, another year without our dear sister.  I know that you're in a much better place than this old world, but oh, we miss you so much and long to have you back for even a day.  I just know you're in your glory there with Mom and Dad and all those we love who have gone on to be with our Lord and Savior.  Please give Mom and Dad and our baby brother Carl Wayne a big old kiss from me and tell them I long for the day I can join all of you around God's throne.  I love you little sister, and you will never be forgotten."

"Happy Birthday, dear Sister.  I hope so much the angels are serenading you on your birthday.  We still miss you so much down here below, and love you more than we can put into words.  Your passing has left such a large hole in our family and in our lives.  Everett moved down here to Florida to be near me, and I'm so glad to have him here.  I have a feeling that it won't be too long until I am joining you around God's throne, and it will be so great to see you again.  I love you, my sweet sister!"

"Hi, sweet little sister.  Another birthday has rolled around and I wanted to take this opportunity to tell you once again how we love and miss you.  By now I'm sure you've  had to chance to catch up with Tarp and talk over old times.  We sure hated to lose him too, but I guess
God needed him more.  And then there was Paul's daughter Jessica's little baby, who was still born.  Heaven must be a very crowded place.
I love you, baby sister, and miss you and those phone calls so much!!"

"Dearest Shirley, I'm sitting here tonight thinking of you.  It's 11:45 at night, almost another birthday for you.  I'll bet it's wonderful having a birthday in Heaven, with our Lord and Savior and our Mom and Dad there with you.  I just can't imagine how precious that must be.  We love and miss you so much, but you know that.  I especially miss those phone calls from you.  It's been a crazy day here and you've been on my mind a lot.  Jim is in the hospital with what appears to be a mini-stroke; Peggy's mother-in-law is there also with a massive heart attack.   And it occurred to me that I never got to come see you in the hospital, and I'm very sorry for that.  But I was with you on your last weekend on this earth, and I came back after you left this earth.  And I am happy that you are at home with God now and out of pain, but oh, I miss you so much.  Just know that you are so loved, now and always.  We will never forget or stop missing you."

And I close my eyes to visualize

Because every night before I sleep
I have you in my prayers."
