Mom, Today would have been your 95th birthday. I would have so loved for you to have been with us for that long of a period. I know you are still watching over me and your precious great, great grandchildren. Please keep them close to your heart and help protect them. You would have loved them to pieces just as I do. They are our little gingers and little pills at the same time. I love you Mom, I know you are in a better place, but I miss you so very much. Much love Sharon.

This is always a sad time of year, especially so close to Mother’s Day. I know you know the struggles I have been through, even the heartache. I need you to keep watching over me and asking God to keep his protective hand over our little ones. I’m sure you know, they are my world. I need them to be safe and out of harm. I miss you so much my precious Mom, the heartache of your loss is less than at first, but heartache still remains. I love you, I miss you and send you my love, from me and the kids.

Mom, I went to visit Aunt Bernice yesterday. We had a good time, Bonnie was there and as usual, we created chaos wherever we went. Lots of laughs and I know you know how much I needed that. I miss you Mom, I feel like our time together was way too short and we had so much more to do together. I hope your place in Heaven is everything you want it to be. Let our loved ones know I love them and miss each of them, but especially you. Please keep watching over me and help me pray for things to go right for the little ones. Happy 94th Birthday Mom, we all love you and it's been so long since we've had time with you, that's harder than I ever imagined. Love you my dear Mom. Sharon

Mom, I miss you more now than ever. I need you so much. You know what's happening within the family, and it's almost more than I can bear. I'm hoping you will continue to watch over me and support me. I love and miss you so very much. Sharon

Mom, It's been 23 years today that your heart stopped beating and my heart broke. Many things have happened in my life that I wanted to share with you, but you weren't here. I know you are watching over me, I can feel your love. I miss you, I love you and I know that you are happy, so now I need to be happy. Keep an eye on me and guide me when you see me going in the wrong direction. However, you taught me right from wrong, so hopefully your job will be small. I love you, Sharon

Mom. Another year has passed without you and it has been a rough year. I think of you everyday and miss you with more intensity than ever. I would have loved if we had talked more and shared more, so many things went unsaid. I know I didn't tell you that I love you enough, I guess I assumed you already knew. It wouldn't have killed me to say it more. I'm grateful for all the opportunities you gave to me, you made the 11pm trip to St Charles to pick me up after I got off work from A&W root beer, picked me up after all the basketball games, ran me to 4-H events and on and on. I don't think I realized what you were doing for me, I'm sure you would rather have been in bed sleeping. Thank you for loving the twins so very much, they truly needed that love. I think we competed in that area because I loved them so much too. My heart has such an empty place where you belong, but I know that place will be filled when I am called home. I love you Mom, to the back of the moon.

It's been 21 years since I have seen your eyes, heard your laugh or just been able to talk with you. You took a part of me with you that day you left, but you left a part of you here with me. It's a part I cherish, it's our memories. I remember being in the kitchen, you standing at the sink, me sitting at the table, us laughing or just talking about things. I still talk to you about things, do you hear me? I'm sure you do because I truly believe you are with me and guiding me back to the right path. I'm sure you cringe when I mess up, but that's part of all our lives and I know you understand. I love you to the back of the moon. That's what Cayden says to me. He and Adalyn are the adorable little red heads you would have loved with all your heart. They are my great grandchildren, can you believe it, I'm a great grandma. Funny how time moves forward and we want it to stand still so we can keep our family whole. I know I will see you in Heaven some day, until then, hold my hand, my heart and my love close to you, I'll be there. Love, Sharon
