"Today is your birthday and you have been on my mind a lot. So many times I pick up the phone to call you and I remember I can't. I know you are rejoicing being with the Lord and I would never wish you back but I sure do miss you! I have a voice mail that I saved on my phone so when I get lonely for some Aunt Grace time I listened to it.  You left a lasting impression on my life that I am sooo grateful to God that He allowed us the time together that we had.  I love you! Miss you huge!"

"Mother's Day was hard this year. I'd already picked out the necklace I wanted to give you this year. I ended up doing a little shopping at Tuesday Morning as a way to feel closer to you. This grieving process is like nothing I've ever been through before...
I think the hardest part is knowing you were the glue that held this family together and the sense of home and belonging is fading away..."
