"Hi mom. I can't believe it's been 14 years today. Miss you everyday. I know Silvia has said we call her names and she's the outcast and doesn't have family...well that is so far from the truth. Rose and I have helped her...in fact we both just gave her 250 dollars. We cant keep paying for things..i know you would talk some sense in her. Danielle need to step up to the plate and help her parents. Work two jobs if need be but Silvia just doesn't want to hear it and thinks we are being mean. No it's because we worry about what's going to happen to Danielle when they are gone. I know you used to help her all the time. I wished shed understand we aren't against her. It's just when she calls you names a nd accuses you of things and telling people we don't help...it really makes you mad. I want to hug you one more time, tell you I LOVE YOU. Miss you. Hugs"

"Hi mom, you have no idea how bad things are.  Well maybe you do, but I am so afraid right now.  I really need family and they are all gone, I am so, so scared.  I wish wish wish you were here to at least talk about it, you never called us bad names and made me feel bad about my self, I loved you for that. You loved me no matter what. It's now 2017 it's been so long rose and Doris are close, and now I am the outcast. It's OK now I understand how Doris felt way back when she was the outcast. I love you so much I am sick over you, I finally went with Danielle to see your place were they laid you to rest, with dad, I hope you are at peace, rember you said if you passed that you would try some way to reach me??  You haven't yet mom try again. Night I love, love, love you silvia"

Mom I know you can hear me still, and see me. I love and miss you so. so  much,   I wish I could see you one or two more times, tastes your cooking, or listen to one of my bad jokes, and say "Oh Silvia" I loved embarrassing you, I hope you are resting in peace, and are with all your loved ones with Jesus on this wonderful day.   Today you will be 84 I wonder how you would look since you never did have wrinkles. Mom I want to talk to you so bad and let you know some things that are going on, it seemed you always could fix stuff, I just hope you here me at night when I cry.  I love you and Dad, Tell Dad Hi for me and I love him too.  I know when all my hummingbirds come to feed one must be you, or you sent them,here you taught me a lot about things, and I know when my wind chimes chime, they must be you, I love and miss you momma for ever!  your always in me in my heart, and thoughts every day."

I love you."
