"I don't get on here much anymore because it makes me cry. However, I still want to pay tribute and honor my mom's memory. I have been doing well in my life and career. God has blessed me far more than I deserve. I am living my life fulfilling my dreams not just for myself but also to honor my mom. She would be so proud of her grandchildren too. They are phenomental people and world changers. I have been traveling alot especially this year since my mom didn't see much of the world, I am doing it for "us".  This year has been really tough losing my mom's sister Linda who also wrote on this site under LL. Her intials. I know they are both together now but both impacted my life in such a remarkable way. It is very hard not to have them to talk to or get much needed advice from.  In their honor and memory, I will show love and random acts of kindness everyday to not only those around me but even for strangers. The world could definitely use more love and kindness. I will smile, wave, pray for people more, offer more compliments and try to be a better person each day. Words will never describe how much I love my mother or the pain I feel from missing her so much. I am working on turning pain into something positive. Maybe being a light to someone who is in a dark place is something we all can do."

"I love you so much Grammie. I know you're in a better place though but I still can't help but miss you. You inspire me so much when it comes to creating music. I often reflect on the memories we had listening to your favorite songs. You had such great taste in music. You are in part responsible for the "soulfulness" i put into my music. I will not let you down Grammie, I will make something out of my music that will break the generational curse of poverty our family had once been stricken with. I miss you and will always love you Grammie."

"It has been over 6 years since you went home to be with the Lord. It gets hard sometimes to come here to this site. It makes me think of what a tremendous loss it was to lose you and how time doesn't heal all wounds. I feel your presence with me especially this week. I cried yesterday when I heard a song that reminded me of you. I was in the middle of a restaurant eating dinner when it came on. Now being on here I am crying again. I know this life is temporary but it still is hard not having you here. My faith in Jesus makes it possible to keep going for me. You would be incredibly proud to see our lives and accomishments. Your grandchildren and great grandchildren would make your heart melt. It is funny when I write here I feel like I am sending you a letter to Heaven. I love you mom. Keeping resting in the arms of Jesus."

"Missing you so much today, Mom. 5 long years today since you had to leave. Today was very hard for me but God's word reminded me of our gift of salvation. We will spend eternity together. I just have to complete my work down here first. Our bond is so strong even in death that didn't change. I will see you again!! I can't wait to see you in our Father's house."

"Thinking of you on this day. Missing your warm smile and fresh coffee always lol. I'm especially missing the days where I would come over and watch movies with you all night. You were the only person that would let me watch scary movies no matter what! Missing the bowls of candy that sat on your living room table (I probably ate too much). You would give me baths and sometimes I got to sneak and sleep in your water bed as I gazed at the pictures of farms and horses surrounding your room. I will never forget you. I think of you constantly. Sad that you will not see me walk across that stage but you have been such an asset on pushing me to get to this point! Love you forever and ever."

"Gosh, I thought in time it would get a little easier being here in this world without you. I was completely wrong it's been 4 and a half long years without you. Some days the feelings and tears flow like they did right after you passed. I feel like a piece of my heart will forever be missing. You're missing so much down here. You would be so proud, Mom."

"No special occasion today just missing you like crazy today, mom! It's been really hard down here without you. I felt orphaned the day you left but I knew God wanted you back and I had to accept His will. I just wish you could still be here with us physically to see and be part of our lives and milestones. You've already missed so many of them. I hope you visit me in my dreams again soon. That comforts me when I am sad. Love You More than words can explain."

"Karin was the kind of person that if you needed to laugh or cry, she would be right there with you. Laughing with you or crying with you. Her face had so much glow and her heart had so much love to give to everyone around her. She was kind, helpful, loving and forgiving. She was a one of a kind jewel that is rare to find in life. She went back home and we will see her again."
