Happy 64th Birthday, my Love. I know you are having a nice Birthday with
Jesus. Had you on my mind all day and wished I could put my arms around you and give you a big hug! But then, you are on my mind every day and night , think of you always. I am going to bake you your favorite, Coconut Cream Pie for the next time I go to Jackie's and celebrate your Birthday.

As always , I love you big as the world and then some, and I will love you forever and a day  Your my man. I miss you so much -- still

Mr. Volna, I may have never known you or met you, but my trek to the top of Willow Creek this past weekend for my bear trip has truly inspired me. Seeing the memorial that your family and friends have placed up there for you, has made me thrive more to do what I love. With that being said, I thank you sir. May you continue to watch over gods country for all that get to sit next to you on your bench.

My Dear John, I can't believe it is 5 yrs. today that your gone. Still missing you so very much, a day does'nt go by without me thinking of you and our wonderful life we had together. God blessed me with you

You are the very best thing that ever happened to me. I love you, big as the world and then some and I will love you forever and a day.
Your Elizabeth

Dear Brother, you will be forever remembered. You were not only my big brother and best man, but my best friend. We shared things that only we as brothers could ever know. You shared with me your inner thoughts and secrets like only brothers could. I know that you know all the things I said to you in the letter I left with you. Your friendship and brotherly love are immeasurable. You will forever be Johnny-Mike, "My Big Brother". I know that you are watching over me and my family. All the Deer Incidents have proven that time and again, even this morning Lucy and I both saw Deer independently. We will always keep you're miry alive until we meet again. I love you And miss you John.

I visited your memorial cross on the Troublesome Pass overlook this week. That has been a favorite spot of mine for over 30 years. Must have been your too. I grew up not far from you in Pa.
I will post the photo I took of the cross.

Hey John...I’m a little late...but been thinking of you. Gilly and I miss you very much...even miss you agitating me! LOL. 

You would be proud of mom...she has become quite independent. Sierra and Shane are growing into fine young adults..you would be proud of them too. 

It is hunting season....so I know you are happy.

Love, Lorie and Gilly

Dear John,


You are always on my mind. I miss you and our talks so very much. You always talked and I listened now I guess it’s my turn. I’ll talk and I know you are listening. As the Fall ushers in, I know you’d be out in the woods in search of that trophy Buck. Every time I encounter one, I know it’s a sign from you, especially while me or the girls are out running. I wish you were here to listen to my troubles and give me your wisdom. Oh well, I know you are listening and you are with me, always. I love and miss you my brother.

Sierra's 16th Birthday

Shared by Elizabeth Volna on April 2, 2016

  My Dear John,

     Today was our Princess Sierra's 16th Birthday !  I can't believe she is 16.  I 

Remember how happy we were the day she was born. She has given us so much

Joy. She is such a beautiful girl  inside and out with such a kind heart. I gave her my 

Blue Star Sapphire ring you gave me when you asked me to marry you, as you always told me you wanted me to do that on her 16th birthday. So she has it now. She loves it. She will think of you always when she wears it. I pray God blesses her with a long

happy, healthy life. I love you and still miss you very much.  Love, Forever,

Your Elizabeth  Xoxoxo
