"My sweet son, as I make plans to celebrate your birthday again without you, I think about how you struggled with making the decisions for Amanda and her children, taking care of them and you suffering all the time and she was doing you wrong, as you were loving her and her children, its hard not to want to hurt her but I'm sure God will take care of things and I try to keep in mind your at peace with God, your family and friends are going to zipline in your honor, something we wanted to do together and never got to. sort of dreading 9-23 hoping I can do it without being sad. Love always and forever momma"

"My sweet Dave,well she is back in the gutter, my heart breaks for Kira, have no ideal where she is probably back in Indiana.Been trying since March to get your things back, still cant believe she stole your things, everything you accused her of was the truth, she had both of us fooled, karma has its way and she is getting it, I hoped she would become the mother she should be but isn't going to happen. As far as I know she is still down the street and still works at the bar. Love you and miss you so it is unbelievable how much."

"my sweet son, been a lot of deaths this week, not family just people I know. People don't realize we are still grieving for you, sometimes Ifeel i'm the only one, I know that isn't so but I cannot seem to cope with things too good anymore. I miss you, our talks and our dreams. Its hard to see your friends living life and having fun, it makes me miss you more because I can see you laughing and having fun and I realize your not here to share that with them. Love momma"

"well, i was in ky this past weekend but didn't get to your grave i was not in good shape, but my heart was there.. just wanted to let you know how much you are miss and love so much.. the one that keeps saying she misses you so much, she just plays on everyone sympathy, she nothing but a liar,user,and everything else that i can think of.. i wish i could tell you this in person,but maybe it would be bad to do that.. but in the end she will get hers and i can't wait.. love you and miss you"

"my sweet boy , it gets harder when I go to visit your grave, it starts when I leave to come home, it is so hard without you. I feel if you had it to do all over you would not have let her bring you down, she wasn't worth you wiping your feet on, it was and always will be about her, she is out of my life now, like you I had my eyes closed and she opened them 6 months after you died, my heart aches everyday. i love you so much."

"Hey, bub. Leaving in the morning to come see you. I wish you were going to be there to greet us properly. I'm sorry that I never actually told you how much you meant to me. I hope that somehow you knew. Mom is taking it one day at a time, as is expected, I guess. But I know she will never be the same, not without you. I'm trying my best to take care of her and be there for her every chance I have. She's in good hands, I promise you that. I hope you are at peace, and I truly hope that those responsible for how things ended will soon get what they deserve. If I had an opportunity I would make sure of it. I love you and miss you so much.

"I wish I would've gotten the chance to introduce myself to you. I am your neice. My heart aches every time I think about the fact that I'll never get to know who you truly were. I've seen you in pictures, and I've seen you at your funeral, but never will I be able to know what you look like when there is life running through you. Never will I know the sound of your voice in person. Never will I get to hug you. I'll never get to hear your stories about the things you and my dad used to do together. As much as I love hearing the stories about you, I'd rather hear them from you and be able to see you light up at all the funny moments. I'll never truly know who you are. I'm sorry that I was not able to be there. I'm sorry that when I started speaking to the family that I didn't speak to you. I'm sorry that the first time I met you was at your funeral, and I'm sorry we only have one picture together from when I was 6 months old. I know everyone down here misses you and speaks nothing but kind words about you. I wish I had things to say. I'm sure people don't understand how I could miss you when I don't even really know you, and maybe they're right, but I still cry looking at our one picture together, and it still sickens me to know that I'll never get to take another picture with you. I hope you're doing well, and I hope you're happy up there . Please continue to watch over our family. Especially Grandma because I know its really hard for her. I wish I could do more to help her feel better. I may not know you, but I still love you."

You are your mother's guardian angel now, You are so loved and missed David. Fly high with the Angels.

"My sweet son I miss you so much at times its unbearable. They have moved out,I took care of them 6mos after you passed, I couldn't grieve for taking care of them.she started dating about 6 to 8 weeks after you died. I believed everything she said, I had her back, I took up for her whenshe  even didnt know it, between her boyfriend telling me about their relationship  and  seeing them all over each other in the kitchen I knew shehad been lying and she didn't have to. Then the oldest lied on her mom and the boyfriend,  and thru all of it I got blamed for it all. I just needed to vent . I know you are at peace and I now understand why you felt the way you did that last night I had with you. I still see your face that tragic Monday morning. There has been so much ugly and I have been accused of it all. Hope someday she will get over the guilt she has about your death and come to talk doubt it but we will see. Tomorrow will be your favorite holiday and I will be doing noting like we use to do. Love always momma  miss you so."

"I don't even know where to begin, bub. You'll never know what you were to me, and you'll never know how much I miss and think about you every day. I wasn't always there for you, not in the way I should have been, but I always knew you had my back, no matter what. Now I've got yours. Don't ever worry about mom, I promise I'll be with her and take care of her. Nobody will ever hurt her or do her wrong, just like I know you would do. I love you, so much, and you're so missed, I think the outpouring of support and love would surprise you. I hope you can rest easy, now, bubby. No more struggling, keep that amazing smile forever emblazoned on your face."
