Having Kaylee was the best thing that has ever happened too me, but it was also the hardest. It's hard because she will never get to meet you. All I have are stories to tell and pictures to show her. I am truly blessed to have a daughter. I was always your mini me and now I have one of my own. I know you would of loved her! You would you been an amazing grandma. It sucked going through pregnancy and labor without you. I had to rely on other people to help me through it. I always wonder what my life would be like if you were still here. Ill always love you. I miss you more than ever!

Hey amie I am just writing you to tell you.. I very much miss you. My life since you left has been a up and down battle. I need you so bad. I know I have to be a man and suck it up.. but Amie its just so hard sometimes. Im plagued by addiction, by institutions, by my own lack of disapline.. I never been so ashamed of myself.. I sure am not living up to how you would like.. I just want you here...... I miss you so so much.. Your my bestfriend.. I know It clearly could have went a different route, yet here i am.. So if im here Ill live for both of us.. Your children are so amazing. all of them have goals and are achieving them.. You would be so very proud. AHHHH I love ya sis and I want you back..

Losing your Mom at the age of 12 simply sucks. I've done so much with my life and you're not here to experience any of it with me. My future husband and my future kids will never know who you are. All I have of you are pictures and memories. I miss your laugh, I miss you voice. I miss dancing with you in the kitchen, I miss getting into your make up. I miss baking with you and licking the spoon once we were done. I miss your singing, I even miss arguing with you. I just miss everything about you.

Hey Amie...Bobby and I are having another one of our late night, heart to hearts and we landed here talking about you again. He has so many stories, and so many memories with you. I wish I could've met you...Robert thinks were a lot a like, and that you would've liked me. From the things I've heard you two were pretty close, he misses you a lot. Your kids are so beautiful, so smart. I've been blessed enough for them to have welcomed me into their lives, and have their blessing to be with Robert. There is so much I want to talk about, but ill leave it at this.. Thank you for your part in raising your brother. He's an amazing man. You're so loved, and so missed. <3

It doesn't seem like it's been 11 years. I keep expecting her to come through the front door any minute. She would be very proud of her children. They all are doing great. Bob and I sure do miss her and wish we could have changed what happened. Love ya --miss ya very much everyday.

Amie, I think about you everday and what it would be like to now have a 45 year old daughter. I miss you so much and your children do also. They aren't children anymore and they have turned out to be wonderful adults. I miss chyenne very much too. She would have been beautiful. I know you two are in a better place and looking down on us. Love and miss you

I can't believe it's been 10 years. It seems like only yesterday since she passed. I miss her so much everyday and still ask myself if there was something I could have done differently.  Her children have all turned out to be great young adults and we're so proud of them. Love and miss you . I know you and all your relationship are doing great up there.

Mothers Day is coming up. Every year it has been hard, but this year seems to be a bit harder. Maybe it's because prom was less than a week ago and you weren't here. Most kids just don't understand what's it's like to lose their mom. They don't understand what it feels like to miss someone. I miss you so much!! Thank you for watching over all of us.

I can't believe you are 44. I still remember the Nellie Olsen hairdo I gave you in about the 4th grade. You are greatly missed. I still see you sitting on our couch joking about different things. I wish you would send me a sign so that I know you are alright. I look for them daily---love you.

Amie everyday Your missed. I have witnessed your children grow to be adults. You would be so very proud of what you left behind. Your spirit and laughter is always something I cherished. You and I have always had a understanding of each other. There were many nights I listened to you cry, laugh, just talk about your life as you did for me. Thank you for the many memories.. I love u.

This is not a good time of year for me. Few people really know what it's like to loose a child. I still can't believe it happened and still don't know why. We all love and miss you and I can see It in the children that they do too. They have turned out to be great kids and young adults. Erica and I went down and put new flowers on the graves. Please give Cheyanne our love too. Love yo

I can't believe it's been 8yrs since you became one of our angels. I miss you so much, but you already know that because I tell you every day. I am so sad without you, but I know you are with me all the time & I'll see you again someday. Plz watch over the kids & let them know you're with them, & plz watch over our bro & help him be strong. He really needs you now. I LOVE YOU!!

I love you more than anything. It breaks my heart that you aren't here to be by my side as I marry my best friend & the love of my life. I keep thinking that you should be here with me to pick out my dress, make plans, & enjoy the day. But deep down, I know you will be. Just hurts terribly..never thought I'd do this without you. I LOVE YOU!!

I love you more than I did before- And if today I don't see your face- Nothings changed. No one could take your place- It gets harder everyday

I hope no one has to know the pain of losing a child ahead of the mother. I think of her every day and can still her her voice. she was funny, beautiful ,full of energy, devoted to her children,kind,loved her family and so much more. I still think she'll come walking through the door any time. Her children are wonderful. They have all turned out so good I'm so proud of them.
