"Jim & I can't believe that you left us 5 yrs. on Christmas morning, 2008. The only thing that helps is knowing that you and Kibble and all the rest of your brothers&sisters are once again together.!!There is such wide broken circle, that nobody can fill but you!!!We will always love you.Jim &Sandy."
"Grandma...I can't believe I haven't seen you for 5 years and tomorrow is when you went to heaven! Dad misses you so much and I do too! You are greatly missed but I know you are probably dancing in heaven with Kibble now. That's the ONLY peace I get is knowing you are celebrating!I love you Grandma and always will! Christmas will never be the same without you!! Miss and adore you!! Love Jenny Sue"
