When tomorrow starts without me
and I'm not there to see
If the sun should rise and find your
eyes filled with tears for me

I wish so much you wouldn't cry
the way you did today
While thinking of the many things
we didn't get to say

I know how much you love me
as much as I love you
And each time you think of me
I know you'll miss me too

When tomorrow start without me
don't think we're far apart
for every time you think of me
I'm right there in your heart

This is the only the third time I've visited this page, because that shining face of yours in all these pictures is too hard to handle the pain it brings me. I am here feeling lonelier than ever on this night in my cabin. I created an alter for you in the corner with one of your last school photos, some beans from jungle trees in Costa Rica, shells, gratitude stones ,and other gems of mine. I've lit a candle for you and picked the first flowers I have ever laid in remembrance of you, fireweed. If you had ever made it up to Alaska I know it would have been your favorite. I miss you and need you more than I've ever realized. Please come into my dreams.... I love you

I don't know why, but you've been on my mind a lot today and I just wish I could give you a hug and see you smile!

I thought that I would miss you so, and never find my way.
And then I heard the angel say "She's with you every day."

Miss you here and love you very much

Hello beautiful sister. It's such a sad day for all of us who love you. I can't believe 2 years have passed since we lost you ... the hurt is still there like it was yesterday ... the disbelief too. I hope you know how much you were loved and stil are. I think of you all the time and wish so much you were here.

Karen - it's been two years since you left us. I hope your new home in Heaven is providing you joy, happiness, and comfort without all the fears, troubles, pain, and heartache that life here on Earth presented you. You are our angel and we hope that when you look down upon all of us that you loved, we bring you a smile - that beautiful smile of yours. You are missed, pretty lady.

Missing you so much and remembering the very special woman and mother that you were.

WTTS is running their annual A to Z program again, which just started this morning, so they're still in the 'A' songs. They just played Sarah McLachlan's 'Angel', which is one of the songs that I set for your memorial video. Every time I hear that song it makes me stop and think of you and it never fails to bring a tear to my eye. Miss you.

You left us all far too early.
Your smile and warm heart are greatly missed.
I know that you're in a good home now in Heaven where you're keeping everything just so.
I hope you're looking in on all of us from time to time to check on us.
Now you know how truly loved you were. You are missed.

You left behind our broken hearts ... and happy memories too.
We never wanted memories though ... we only wanted you."
I wish more than anything that you were here to celebrate your 52nd year of life. I love you and miss you terribly.

It is hard to believe this is the second year now that we have celebrated your birthday without you here. I miss you beyond what words could ever express, but I know you're in a happy place now, which is the only thing that comforts me. I think about you every day and I feel you with me everywhere I go. Happy (what would be) 52nd Birthday Momma. Forever in my heart, I love you <3
