Merry Heavenly Christmas boo! It is so hard not having you here it's even harder not having your brother and sister are either. Ronald's now fiance yes he proposed Christmas Eve she had come down with covid so they could not come over and then the day before Christmas Eve Leo tested positive for covid which meant Stephanie, Ben, and Tristan could not come over. On top of that this is freaking Iowa and we have no snow. It's actually 55°. It just seems like Christmas this year sucks. Your dad it's not doing great besides being off work because of a messed up arm which does not look like they're going to be able to get it back to where it needs to be for him to return to trucking he also found out that he's got narrowing of the spine and he has also got prostate cancer boo. My depression has went into overload. The weight that I lost I put over half of it back on because I just did not give a s*** anymore. I did not do a big Christmas dinner I made some turkey and few side things took the majority and dropped it off at Ronald's dropped off some turkey at Steph's she has family up from Iowa City and she's making a ham so she is going to do the plate for you this year. So Sammy will enjoy sharing your plate. We did do your advent calendar and I did your stocking I shared what was in your stocking with Dad and Grandma. Doing laundry right now kitchens all cleaned up and I think I'm going to lay down and take a nap because I am physically emotionally tired. I love you so much boo should I miss you like crazy. XOXOXO mom

Happy Birthday Ricki
You are thought of missed often. Every time I go into a store and see circus peanuts I think of you! Ashton says the same thing!
You are missed sweet guy! I miss that laugh and happy spirit you filled a room with!
I’m so blessed to keep in contact with your momma. She misses you everyday! So much around her reminds her of you!
You placed a stamp on my heart that will forever be there!

Merry Heavenly Christmas Boo! 6 yrs without your beautiful soul with us. Christmas has never been the same since you left us. The laughs, smiles, and enjoying this time of year are minimal. You loved Christmas and made all the decorating, baking worth the while. Seems no one else really enjoyed it as much as you and I. But I still decorate and bake in your memory. Just not as much. I still put stuff in your stocking and if someone comes that aren't family I give them what's in it. This year it was Dads friend Jeff. Even got your event calender. Each day someone ate the chocolate for you. I did a couple, but not on my diet. I did get your Christmas M&M thing and put it in the china cabinet where I have a memorial set up of you. Each year I swap it out. I do the same Valentines Day, and Easter. Your nephews and niece are getting so big. Tristan will be 6 next month, Jaxen turned 7 this month, Artorias will be 2 Feb 1st and Lilika tirned 6 months the 12th of December. Baby, I miss you so much and love you with all my ❤. Xoxoxo Mom

My dearest Boo! Today marks 6 yrs. 6 of the longest years without you. I went to church today. Yes, me..I went to help me thru this of many.days. I then went to watch the TZRR Band play in Illinois, because they play my song for you The Dance by Garth Brooks and I really wanted to hear it and just be by myself. Hell, I'n by myself all the time now anyway. But when I got there I found out it was last weekend they played so another set back. Came home and just got on the lawnmower and mowed the damn leaves. I am missing you so much. You have 3 nephews and a niece now. Tristan Enrique will be 6 in Jan. Jaxen Aron will be 7 in Dec. He is Molly's son but I still consider him my grandson. Artorias Finn will be 2 in Feb and Lilika Rose will be 4 months old tomorrow. This year has really been hard Boo, even more with the Corona Virus and the quarantines. I for one will be glad when it and the election is over. People have become so hateful. We need more people like you. You always smiled and was kind to everyone. If soneone was down you would bring then up. Like you always did me. I will never understand why God had to take an Angel and leave all these devils here . Boo, always remember how much I love you ❤ and miss you! Save a place for me. I'll be there soon. Xoxoxo. Love, Mom

My dearest Boo! Yesterday was a hard day for me. It marked 5 yrs. 5 yrs without you, your laughter, your beautiful smile. I hope heaven knows the gem they have. You left me with so many memories and still so many unanswered questions. I so enjoy when you think of me by coming in the form of a cardinal or a white butterfly. I have seen an abundance this year. I pray you know how much you are loved and missed. Xoxoxo. Mom
