I know I already left a tribute months ago, I just can't help but to look for any way to talk to you. I love you so much and I have cried every day since you have left us. There are so many things in my day I wish to talk to you about. I miss talking to you the whole way to school every night. I miss every time I called you always answered with "Sarah?" Every. Single. Time. lol I can't believe you're not here anymore. I almost refuse to believe it. I wish Jackson had more time with you. It's not fair. I love you so so much Bubby. Forever.

I'm extremely saddened to learn that Joyce has passed away. I was her nurse multiple times and continued to visit her after she had left the facility. She was a joy to be around and felt like family. I was trying to reach her for a bit but hadn't heard back. I wish I had know about the funeral to attend. I miss you so much and our lunches. I hope you're at peace now and wish your family the best.

Mommy, I wake up every day since you have left us with such sadness. It is a pain that can not be put in to words. Then as the day goes on I am so thankful that I was so blessed to have had you. Your unconditional love that you had given me has made me strong. Just having your love has always kept me safe. My children and grandchild know this love. They are strong and kind and know how to love and respect. This all comes from you. You have left this earth but never our hearts. I love you forever and a day.
