Mom, missing you a little more today than yesterday...but, always missing you and holding you in my heart. As I get ready for work this day, the words you would say to me each day as I would leave for work just a few years ago still echo in my head and heart, "Play nice." I will try mom. Playing nice seemed easier when you were here. Now, all things have a little less meaning. I love and miss you with all that I am...you were my meaning and purpose. Help me find you in my life this day and say to me again, Play nice.

Today is the 10 month anniversary of my mother, Mable Hoedl's, death. I can't help but feel sad. It seems as if the rest of my life will be marking milestones. Thank you to my little sister Patty, for listening and being there, for putting up with my tears. This is the greatest pain my heart has experienced. I can handle physical pain...at my age, and with my background, it is a way of life. Never any easier, but no comparison. Where there is much love, there will inevitably be great pain. I love and miss you mom with every fiber of being.

She Graced my life

Shared by Dan Hoedl on November 18, 2021
83 years ago today, God shared with the world the most beautiful (inside and out,) loving woman that I have ever been blessed to know. To some, she was a granddaughter or daughter, to others she was a sister, to one she was a wife, to nine she was a grandmother, to five she was a mother, and to all she was a friend. I know and love her as my mom, and I was known by her as her black-eyed devil. On October 3rd, 2015, God graced heaven with her beauty and love. Called home, the beauty and love of this world has greatly diminished, but she lives on in the hearts of all who knew her. My heart will forever be changed because God blessed me with Mable Hoedl as my mother, confidant, conscience, roommate, teacher, and friend. Happy birthday mom, thank you for everything, and I love you...forever and always.

A VIVID TRUTH 10/12/2021

Shared by Dan Hoedl on October 16, 2021
Mom, you visited me in the most vivid dream this past Tuesday (10/12). The dream began by Tim (and family) visiting me at my place of residence for, what seemed like, the opportunity to use my hot tub/swimming pool. Little ones were enjoying themselves in the water when I noticed you folding clothes. I joined you in this task as we talked. During our conversation, I hesitantly said, "Mom, I know that we're not suppose to ask but, when are you coming home?" Without hesitation,  you responded, "I'll be home on Sunday." Then you hugged me, and as if comforting me in a swaying embrace, you said, "I have missed you so much." Thank you mom. I, too, have missed you so much, and I love you with all of my heart. ❤❤❤
