"Another year has come and gone and the pain of you not
Being here with is has not lessened at all. You will be

Forever missed and loved by those of us that were
Blessed to have physically in our lives and the many
That have come into our lives since you left us. I know
You are watching from your seat in heaven and know
That we are all still together and love one another
Like you taught us. I thank you for the lessons you give

You and know you would have loved each other. I miss
You and love you.

"Today is your 83rd birthday and I thought, "Happy Birthday" is not fitting. I would be Happy Birthday if you were here.  I think of you daily and see you when I look in the mirror or at my siblings.  I don't think I could make it without my sisters and brothers.  Wishing you were here, wishing you were near, wishing you could see and hear all the grands, great grands and great great grands........tears....miss you mommy."

"Happy birthday Mommy, I woke up with you on my
Mind as I do many days, even though it has been a
While since you left us to be with The Lord.  I often
Of the many lives you touched while you where
Here on this earth. I find myself thinking of things
You said to us that I now say to my children. I thank you
For the love and wisdom that you imparted to me and
All of us. You are truly love and missed and as I get
Older I often think of the day God has promised that
You, Granddaddy, Grandmother, aunt Betty and I shall
"Walk Around Heaven All Day" I love you and miss you."

"I said this year I wont cry.  I say this every year.  As tears pour down my face I miss you.  I miss you seeing all that I have accomplished.  Only you can be proud of what I try to do.  I tried to be like you.  It didn't always turn out that way, but I tried.  I try to help, be there for them all.  Its not always perceived that way.  I'll do what I can.  My every thought is of you.  I love you mommy.  I really need your help.  I know your watching me and helping as much as you can.  This has been a rough year.  I won't give up.  Too much of you in me.  I've been told that.  Its a compliment I love to hear.  36 years is a long time for a girl to be without her mother.  I tried to make you proud.  Briana knows you thru me.  Too much time has passed.  I could go on talking to you forever.  You've missed so much, but you see everything don't you.  Love forever your baby girl.  Nici"

"Morning Mommy
I often wake with you on my mind.  I miss you more than ever now.  A lot on my mind today.  Yesterday was Christmas and as usual we all gathered.  Gwen and Kenny were the only ones missing.  I try to stay in touch with my oldest sister, but sometimes life gets in the way and more time than I want goes by.  I will call her today :).  You have a new addition to your family.  Mommy Charra made me Godmother!  Kali Rontae.  She's so small and beautiful.  Reggie is Godfather.  As I get ready for the New Year, my life will drastically change.  My last name will change for the last time.   One more life event that you will miss, but I know you are looking down from your Heavenly perch and wish me the best on yet another journey.  I love and miss you Mommy.  Forever missed.  Your babygirl Nici"
