"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."

"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."

"I love you my baby. I miss you more than anyone could ever imagine! I miss that look in your eyes and that smiling face walking up the driveway to greet me after a long day of work. I miss those long arms wrapping around me. I miss your gentle giant hands caressing my legs, my back and the back of my head when you were holding me. When I was mad you would say don't kiss me with hard lips, kiss me with those soft lips that I fell in love with. I miss laying my head on your chest as you rubbed your fingers through my hair. I miss complaining about your driving, if I could have you back I would let you drive however you wanted. I miss being out with our friends or being out with a crowd of people and looking over and you would be staring at me. I could always feel those Big Brown eyes staring at me. I miss coming home from work and crawling in bed with you and waking up to you kissing my face and telling me "wake up my beautiful baby". I could go on and on. I miss you baby! I miss my best friend, my soul mate, my Rock, and my better half. You made me a better person and right now, the thought of living my life without you is unbearable! It's like I'm living in a nightmare! You was our everything! You took care of your family, that's for sure! I miss you and love you David. I always will my baby. I can't wait to back in your loving arms. Until we meet again my love, I will be right here waiting for that day! Love your beautiful baby, as you would say!"
