, Hey Sis,  Happy Birthday ,  I cant believe you have been gone for 11 years,  it sure doesn’t seem like it.  I know you are watching over all of us,  especially your mom.  As usual she stays busy!  Nanny is doing ok,  just doing 1 day at a time.  Jennifer looks after Your Mom,  Abigail and Isabelle get along so good and Jaxon is a Gamer!!  They are doing so good.  Papaw is doing good,  his New Wife is Good for Him,  She spoils him instead of him Spoiling everybody else.  Her name is Linda,  and can you believe that Papaw has a Big Dog!!  Gracie is doing good,  she’s gotten so small,  and she has the insane amount of hummingbirds!!  Both the Girls are doing Good,   Amber and Big Hunter finally got married lol,  and as you probably know Ashley has a new little,  he’s a good Baby!!  And last but not least your brother got remarried,   And they are doing good.  I guess that about catches you up on everyone,  if you see Neita,  give her a hug,  she got called home too soon too,  Well I love and miss you!!  And until I see you,  Love You ❤️❤️❤️  Oh 1 more thing Jenny and her Family are doing good!!Goof

This was our first picture together. You always smiled for the camera and loved having your picture taken! It's been seven years since you went home. I miss you each and everyday! It's the little things I miss the most! I  know if not for my wonderful family and friends and our heavenly father I would not have made it! I think about our last talk on the phone you had been sick and the doctors wanted to admit you, but you said you were going to Vanderbildt on Wednesday and you would just wait. I asked if you were sure you said yes. I said okay  and I loved you! You said love you too!   I never knew that would be the last words I would ever hear you say. I LOVE YOU AND MISS YOU MOM!

You would have been 32 years old August 16,2013. The picture is when we went to Nannie Gretchens and Papaw Chucks . You were two at the time and loved all the beautful flowers Nannie had.  The background I changed to is for Jacob and Ashley ,when you passed we went to the mountains and Jacob said he could almost touch you in heaven atop the mountain. Happy Birthday! Miss you Love Mom.

Happy Birthday!! I still remember it as if it was yesterday!!  Everyone always commented on your big brown eyes! When you were born and they put you in the wrong baby cart and Nana was standing their beating on the window, I will never forget. The memory of your smile ,caring and loving always brings such joy to my heart! Love Mom!

On June 27 2008, when these beautiful babies were born you were excited for Anthony and Danielle. They were in the NICU and you really wanted to go see ,but you were afraid since you had been sick. Your niece and nephew will be 3 on Monday. I know they have a special angel watching over them. Miss you love Mom.

I know that you would have been a great Aunt , to Abigail ,Jaxon and Emma Kate .Miss you ,Love Mom

Black Friday Shopping

Shared by lanette vredingburgh on November 26, 2010

Just remembering the wonderful times we had going shopping the day after Thanksgiving! You and I,Liz  and Sam would get up and head out in the cold to get the deals. Even though many times you would not feel like going you would go for me. The way people would become so upset over such frivolous things ! We would shop till we dropped then go out to eat and then you would be ready to go home and put up your Christmas tree and wrap everything we had bought.  Thanks for all the beautiful memories. Love Mom
