"I know its a day late but I didn't forget about you. I never will.  I had a bad headache so I didn't get on.  I saw the flowers that bloomed at Cindy's.  They were beautiful just like last year. I miss being able to call you and see what you did for the day and tell you about mine. And of course hearing the I love you's.  Nothing or nobody will ever replace you. I miss you so much.  Living in Lakeland is nice and being only 2 hours away but not the same without you there. But its nice that Cindy comes to visit so much.  I hope you got your balloons we sent up for your birthday.  I thought of you this morning when I made eggs, grits and toast.   Well I will let you go til another time.  I love you very much.  Missing you.

"Hi momma,
it has been a month and a half since you went to Heaven. I miss you but I know your ok because you were dancing at the side of my bed so I could see that you were not in any pain any more. I am taking it day by day like you said to. I am taking care of a lady that reminds me of Mary she talks low like her to. I will be doing it for awhile because Micki is having hip surgery in October so I will take care of her until she doesn't want me to. I like helping her like I did you. I LOVE YOU but you know that already. Give dad a hug and kiss for me and tell Mary the kids are ok to. Peyton started daycare full time today and he's potty trained. He asked about you Saturday.

"Hi mommy, this is Debbie.  I know its been several weeks since I've seen you and I miss you so terribly.  Its really hard to be on here and see your smiling face and know that I cant hold you or talk to you anymore.  I miss being able to call you or text you and tell you I don't feel good or just ask you what you did for the day. I don't know how I'm going to live without you even though I know you are in heaven and happy to be your daddy and my daddy and all our relatives that were taken too soon just like you.  I really would rather you were here on earth and be with me, holding me and telling me you love me.  I will always carry you in my heart and think about you everyday.  I love you and miss you so much mommy.  Til the next time I come on to see your smiling face, take care and tell everyone in heaven I say hi and love them too.  Love Debbie"
