"It is now 4 years since you have left us. I never thought I would miss someone this much. Its cold outside today unlike the day you passed. I remember it well. It was raining so hard you could hardly see the road and as I neared the rain stopped. I can still remember the walk to where you lay and it was so hard but we all knew that it was best this way. You looked so young all your wrinkles had seemed to be wiped away from your face and you were finally resting. It feels like yesterday that all that happened and sometimes I wish that I could call just to hear your voice or the long distance hug you always seemed to send when I was having a bad day but that is no longer an option. You pop up on my computer from time to time and I tell you hi and that I love you. I know that as long as you are in my heart and thoughts you really aren't to far from me. Getting ready to return to school to get my Bachelors degree because I want to educate and motivate others about addiction and alcoholism. I know you were proud of me and it's because of you that I carry the torch to help others with the struggles of these diseases. You are very much loved and missed beyond what the mind can't ever understand. You are in my heart and I love you Mom. Love your daughter Bekah."

"Good morning mom, I wanted to let you know that you are thought of each day. I cannot believe that in just a few short months it will mark 4 years gone. At times I wish that I could feel your cool skin against mine and feel the softness of your skin. It was hard to watch you leave our lives but it was what was needed for you. You trusted God to be your trusted savior and he blessed you beyond your wildest dreams. I look forward to the day when I can wrap my arms around you for that is the one thing that I miss so much. I know that you cannot hear me but I thought I would let you in on a few things in my life. I have a good steady job, one that not only pays benefits for me, but I work with people who are addicts and alcoholics. I know you never understood my world but if it weren't for that one addiction I wouldn't know how to help these broken souls. Angel is doing well and is finally getting her life on track, and I know that you would be so proud of her. I am planning on going back to school to get my Bachelors degree so that I cam become a motivational speaker/lifecoach. I want to educate those on the cons of drugs. It was scarry when I was using but it has gotten even scarier. You are missed daily and I love you always. Until our heavenly father comes back to get us Rest In Peace. I Love you."

"Good morning mom-  Today marks two years since you have left us. We all knew that it was time for you to rest and it was sad to see you go but the memories I have of you coat me like a warm blanket. It has been a hard day so far and it has only begun. I remember the sharing song I always loved when you taught Sabbath School but what I remember most was the love you gave so unconditionally. The smiles for everyone you meet. You encouraged me to go to school and earn my degree. Each client I serve in my daily life keeps the memory of you alive; I remember all the times I got to Mamma sit and it was the greatest part of the week. Your light still shines and k now that each day you are gone, each holiday we spend without you is a sad part of our lives. I miss you my dear mother and you are Forever Missed- Your loving daughter Rebecca"

"I thought of you today mom and it pains my heart that you are gone from our lives. I remember your fabulous meals and how you always greeted us on our birthdays with our favorite foods and a hug and kiss. Your touch was always so gentle and we knew that you loved us.

Those memories are forever locked deep in my heart. I Love you mom and you are greatly missed. I know you cannot hear me but I will say it anyway...Happy Birthday Mom you are greatly missed and loved.-Your daughter Rebecca"
