I just want you to know care bear that we are all thinking about you today in all our own way. Can't believe even still that your not here or just a long distance phone call away. I've been thinking about you all week. I talked to my co-workers about you and they send their condolences but it's like reliving a nightmare because I remember those weeks as though it was yesterday like a horrible nightmare I wish everyday that it was only a dream and I'll wake up and your there, But it never does. The hole that's left in my heart can never be filled by anything because you took that price with you when you left this earth. You truly will be forever missed and I just want you to know that if in some universe or spirit world you can hear me and these words that everyone who misses you speak out that you know you were loved and you didn't have to leave this world because we all love you so much.

You will forever be in all our heart every year on this day as it was so devastating losing you, my heart is so broken that the pieces cant be put back together . I loved you so much and always will . My tears cry an ocean of it's own living without you and it's so hard to understand why it had to be this way. I know you loved all of us and I hold onto what you told me in the hospital that you just wanted the pain to go away in your heart. I guess I know you are at peace and that you loved all of us deeply . Maybe one day your kids will know it wasn't about me or them as to why this happened. But I know as your mom what you were going thru and done everything possible to keep it from being how it is. I will never stop loving you . You were my first born and and I will cherish all the lifetime of memories till I'm gone as well.

It is so hard every year to feel alive knowing you are never coming back. I brought you home the day you were born on Mothers Day and was the most beautiful n exciting day of my life. I will always in my heart remember the precious moments I had with you that keep me from falling apart and bring a smile to me that I had you in my life. But I miss you so very much and love you with all my heart. Happy birthday n Mothers Day.

Thinking of you today n remembering our Halloween in Hawaii. We had such a fun time and all your friends they can't believe you are gone and none of us will ever spend another Halloween or thanksgiving with your laughter. Miss you so much and I cry everyday knowing I will never hold you in my arms or hear your voice calling me mommy. Life is so changed for all of us. I love you with all my heart n soul.

Today jan 20 2018. Life goes on as always and I am trying very hard to move forward. You will never know how much you have changed lives and forever broken your moms heart. Nothing will ever be normal for me again. I miss you and cry constantly in my mind n soul. I accept that I didnt understand your deep pain as I thought I did. I understand that now
as I have never felt that pain till now and Im so sorry. A mom would give anything to help her child and I woulda gladly changed places with you to rescue you from your pain. Today makes 2 yrs and I miss you more n more as I realize youre not coming back. I will never hear your voice calling me mom again. Your sisters miss you just as much. It has been the single most devastating heart crushing pain I have ever known. You will never be forgotten.

My heart still aches to this day.
Oh how I wish for so much.
And if wishes were horses beggars would ride.
Love you Mother of my sons

Dear sweet sister of mine,❤
   Another year has gone by that your not here. Another year i will not hear your voice. Another year that i will not make you laugh. Another year i miss you more. 2 years ago today we said goodbye to you, and my heart shattered into a million pieces. I screamed out in pain of the news that you were never going to get through this. Words can not even express the loss that i feel in my heart now that your gone. Of all the things ive endured and overcome in my life, this is just one thing i dont see overcoming. If only there was a cure for heartache. Im sure if there were you probably wouldnt be where you are either. I know you felt that the pains of this world were too much to bare. We all face them in our own ways as well, but dealing with all those things and the pain of not having you around is far worse. Wish you were here big sis. I wasnt ready to lose you now or ever. I miss your laugh. I miss your hugs. I miss everything thats you. I know you are sleeping now and those voices in your head have stopped. I only wish you could hear my voice now telling you i love you and i wish i could see you again. But i know you cant hear me and i only say these things to you in my mind. But its comforting enough because the thought of not talking to you at all seems still so unreal. So in remembrance of you my sweet care bear, this day will never go unforgotten and we will always remember the sadest day in our familys' history, the loss of a beautiful soul. Always in my heart and on my mind. I love you and miss you so much.
                        Love always, Becca❤

Today is Dec 16,2017 my birthday. I woke up thinking how much I hated today cause I'm here and you're not. I wish it was all a bad dream I will wake up from. I am so sad. I will always love you everyday of my life.
Posted by Gloria Gutierrez on January 21, 2017
Well it's January 20th and 1st yr anniversary of your passing away. I still feel the shock of disbelief. I feel numb and n extremely torn. I sit here at almost midnight thinking of all the great times we shared. I remember you with smiles n laughter n sometimes grouchy but we made it thru the good and bad always. I wish I could have taken your ain away n fix the hurt like mommy's do. One day I will hold you again and I know you will wake up in paradise n I want to be there to share life again with you.. I have to fix me now and move forward to reach my destination. At the end of that rainbow in paradise I will be waiting. Love you. Mom

Today is one year without you. It saddens me to think that all this time has gone by already. I never thought in a million years that we would be here to have to go through this. I miss you so much. I talk to you on facebook still. Makes me feel close to you still cause its hard to deal without being able to message you or talk to you at any given time i want, so i find ways to stay connected to you. Everyday without hasnt gotten any easier in one year. I love you care bear to the moon and back. Always and forever you will be missed.

Well it's almost that time of year again we both dread every year. It hasn't started snowing yet but maybe Sunday. It has been almost a year now since you've been gone. It still don't seem real to me and I feel like one day you'll walk thru the door one day n call my name out. But I know that won't happen and when reality hits it is so hard.I miss you so much and wish so much I could've fixed everything for you. I will never understand why this had to be the solution for you. It didn't have to be. Know you finally found peace and the pain of this scrappy world is no more for you. I cry for me as I miss you so much n the memories I have left hurt so much knowing I can't hold you or have you in my life . you were my first child and tho I was not always the best mom or made many mistakes along the way I loved you more than anything and tryed to protect you best I could. I feel like I failed somehow as I couldn't save you from yourself. I hope you knew that day we were all there with you holding you cause we love you so much. Today we should be celebrating the birth of your little sister Rachel but tears fall down my face remembering you all as my happy little girls each with personalities of your own. Life has changed forever for all of us forever without you. We will still always love you . mommy

Well time has flew by but everyday I think of you. My heart will never stop breaking,the pain has been tremendous for all of us. I keep trying to move forward but somehow find myself going backwards with tears in my eyes. I can't think,some days can't even move all day. Just feel devastated for eternity knowing my child was in such tremendous pain that I couldn't fix. The helplessness' I feel no one should have to feel. I am glad at least you can finally feel peace and no more
pain. I loved you so very much. You will never know that now. I just dropped in on here to remember you n cry more tears cause that's all I have left. Only God knows why this had to be,and I'm trying to understand but I just don't. But I will treasure all the memories n wonderful times we have had. Matt says you're a star in the sky cause he is the moon and that I can be a star with you. We will look up and see your sparkle and pray for the day to sparkle with you one day in the future when we can be together again. Love you, mom

Karen, I know you are looking down and smiling. You are so precious to so many people. I thank God every day for having you in my life even if it was only for a short time. We will all meet again and will dance and sing forever. Love, Rochelle

Its hard to say Happy Mother's day or Happy birthday when my heart is so broken,and it will never be happy that your not here with me. You brought so much happiness to my life and I loved you more than life itself. The day you came in this world my life as mommy began and was the greatest joy I had ever experienced. Till that moment I didn't know what love really was but you gave me 40 yrs of love n happiness I will never forget. Love you sweetheart with all that's in me,your mommy

Missing you is the hardest thing in my life. Never thought I would have to live without you in my life. Your mom is gonna be broken hearted till we see each other again. I will see you again and Jehovah promises the resurrection of rightous n unrighteous ,so I put faith in him the giver of life. Love you my beautiful daughter always. Mom

I will always love n miss you my sweet baby

Ive always looked up to my big sister. And now it just seems so strange not having her around. I dream about her, i think about her all the time. I miss her so much. She will forever be in my heart. She lives on inside all who knew her. Still just seems like a bad dream. Never thought in a million years this would happen. I guess no one ever does. Still in shock.

May 9 2018 your birthday again

Shared by Gloria Gutierrez on May 9, 2018

So much of life you are missing out on. Today you would be 43 yrs old but you are no longer getting old n having to deal with life's struggles but missing the good times. Ashley your niece had a baby boy march 3 2018. He is such a joy and you can't tease becca bout being a granny now. Your sons don't remember their granny but maybe one day they will understand the pain we all have suffered n know that I love them anyhow with all my heart. I wish so much that you were here and that you could see how different life has become then you would know how much we all loved you. We still miss n love you and will forever be brokenhearted. I think of you everyday and when I have Ashley here I'm calling her Karen as I truly believe you live on In Ashley,as she is so much like you. I hope that one day your boys will find it in their heart to know how much you really loved them. That maybe they can understand the mental pain you suffered was not their fault or mine. But that they can find peace n love in their life and know that they are not alone. We all love them and we all suffered your loss too. But we all will remember you with love in our hearts and we understand n forgive you. Happy birthday

2018 tribute

Shared by Gloria Gutierrez on January 20, 2018

Bought a cup for myself and your sister becca as we always use to sit n have coffee together. The cup has your picture on it from when you n i were sightseeing in kanaohe Hawaii. So many memories that I will never forget. I miss you coming thru the door yelling "mom you got coffee?" Or when you use to get up every morning it was "dont talk to me till i have my coffee." Well it seemed fitting to make this cup a tribute this year as a remembrance of you as we sit alone having coffee with you on my cup .we still can share coffeetime together. I love you dearly and will always remember.
