"My precious daughter Candace. It's Thanksgiving 2017 and its been my 3rd one without you here. Having you in my life for 32 years here on earth I am thankful to God. Not one day goes by or hours that you are still with me in my heart and in my head. I think of you and I long to touch your face again, give you a hug and see your beautiful smile. Your boys miss you and though I try to let your love live through me I'm not enough. I'm not You. I'm broken without you. Sierra is missing you and your boys need you. Skyler lost Jason his dad. He says when he needs to ride off on his bike or go for a walk because he needs time alone now he sits in the driveway of your last family home and cries. He runs to you. We love you and miss you dearly. I can't wait to see my baby girl again.  I would have taken your place.  You know that. God knows that. Save a place for me.  ✝️ Happy Thanksgiving my child"

"Happy Easter my beautiful daughter Candace. Every day is hard and though I know you are with God I miss you every single moment in my day. You probably know this where you are. I only wish I was where you are and to hear you and see you again. Everything in my life is different. I couldn't run to Mom to hold me when you left and tell me I will survive. Sometimes I'm not sure I will or even want to. I'm so broken. My heart is harden from feelings and the world around me is cold. I want my family back. I want the holidays back. I want happiness, your smile and your love. I miss your son Skyler. I lost both of you. All I have now is Sierra and Jaden. They are the reason I am here. Losing you my child has been the most painful hurt I have ever been through. I love you and I want us to be together again. I long for the day we can all be together until then I breathe and I move forward but I can't move on. I live to let you live in me to love your sister your sons and your  friends. I love all of you. I dream of you a lot. I never will forget you. Never. Save a place for me. When my days are done and God brings me home I long to see you, mom and dad. We miss you."

"Happy Birthday my beautiful baby girl. You grew into a beautiful woman. I miss you everyday I pray to God that you know all you had to do was call or text me and I would have saved you. I know God is in control of all things. I can't bare to imagine what you went through that night and I was less than a mile away from you. You know I would have taken your place. I am so broken. I never wanted to lose my girls and I can't keep this up forever   I am broken. I know my days are short. I will die with a broken heart. I can't keep on without you here. Please come home. Your boys need you and you could take care of your sister. I love you Candace. This should have been me. Instead I struggle every day the pain is unbearable."

"Your Angelversary is near. I will never forget that dreadful early morning awaken at 1:30 a.m. thinking my house was on fire and a police officer meeting me at my door and I immediately ask "Did someone die?" And he replied "Yes Ma'am" and I responded in fear " Not my daughter!" He said "Yes Ma'am "  That was my nightmare I never wanted to live to hear or see"  I am so torn without you. I live each day broken. When you left you took half my heart and one lung. That's how my inner body feels. I hardly breathe but I do for you. I love with half a heart but I love in full. God and You I know gave me a second of peace that morning as I stood outside in the cold and it began to snow quietly and beautful. I knew YOU and GOD was speaking to me to say you are safe with him and in heaven. I love you my sweet beautiful daughter. Each day since I awaken I think of you and God. I need both of you. You will live on through me and God will hold you and carry me through til we are together again. Love me, your mother."

"Save a place for me. My beautiful daughter, Candace Elizabeth not a moment of my life continues on without you a part of it. I carry you each day with me as I did before your birth into this world but in my heart now. I am taking care of your sons Skyler and Jaden along with your little sister Sierra. Your love for your boys lives throughout my life loving them and keeping you alive. I am so broken and I will never be the same. Save a place for your boys, your sister and me. I hide my pain but it is so deep and I'm broken. You were a part of my story to be continued. It's not the way my life was to end..without you here. The bottle of tears we discussed in the Bible, mine is full too. I love you and you will always be "my little princess".  Save a place for me..Love me, Your mother."
