"Mom, I can't stop thinking about you today.  It's been three years and I still hear your voice.  How odd.  And I know that you are still near me...I can feel you at the oddest times and sense your presence but how I long to just hold your hand or caress your hair.  You are truly missed.  I tried my best to be a good daughter to you everyday.  Sometimes I succeeded and sometimes I failed and yet you loved me still.  Mom, I slipped a note into your resting place and I have no idea what it says...I was in another place mentally that day but I know somewhere in there I wrote, I LOVE YOU.  And I always will.   You are always with me.  And today I need to release this sorrow and exchange it for happiness.  You would want that for me.  Your love was light but this burden of grief too heavy.  So I pray you would whisper in God's ear...lighten the load.  I love you."

"Dearest Mother,
As I sit here and think and remember, I remember you with nothing but love and adoration.  You are missed so much by all of us.  My heart aches to call you, hear the sound of your voice.  You were always so wise.  I'm sure Solomon's asking you questions right now.  :)   Much love Mommy, Lisa"

"Hey Mom...I'm thinking of you as always.  You were my best friend and I miss you.  I just moved about 6 weeks ago and I imagine you seeing my new home and sharing decorating ideas with me.   I know you'd like the house and be so happy for me.  I wish you could see it.  And I wish you could see Danielle's baby.  She'll be 2 in January and getting to be such a big girl.  I love you, Mom."
