Hi Mom

Well this past year and a half have been terrible, Joanna was pregnant, Sam went in the hospital, Joanna had a miscarriage, Sam got out of the hospital, Joanna got pregnant again with twins to loose them, I stayed at your house with Sam to take care if him and gad to call an ambulance, Sam died, than Joanna got pregnant last December and her baby's heart stopped and she delivered him at 21wks and now she is pregnant again and has morning sickness really bad so it looks like I'm gonna become a grandma finally. She is doing really good this time. I miss you and Sam so much, it's like I have nobody now to talk to, I use to talk to Sam all the time now both my best friends are gone and I miss you both. I'm so lonely it's terrible most of my friends have passed away I only have Marlene to talk to. Brian is finally doing good, Kim well what can I say about her always something wrong with her. So that's all for now, I really really miss you both but am glad your together, I love you both and until we meet again I carry you both in my heart.

Love you Mom and Sam

Mom, we've been trying to get Sam's ashes to the cemetary but we are having trouble with Danny
 He had a memorial set up for him and we all showed up to find out he canceled it the day before and didn't tell us, he says he is rescheduling it I told him to just have him put in with you that's all he wanted but you know his kids, now that Sam is gone they won't answer our calls, they are mad about the will which has nothing to do with us but who cares, I will be glad when this is over and Sam and Brandys ashes are with you. I miss you both so much but am glad your together. Til we see eachother again I will miss you both and keep you in my heart. Love you Mom and Dad aka Sam

Dear Mom.
I know now that you are happy that Sam is with you and Brandy, we're putting Brandys remains in the cemetery so your all 3 together. It's so hard cleaning out your house knowing were never gonna see either of you til we join you in heaven. I love you both and no one knows how hard this is on me, Sam was the last piece of you I had, we talked every day, I sat with him at the hospital before he passed and your right Sandra stirred up shit with me but Sam said ignore her kinda hard you know how I feel about him. I love you both with all my heart so hard having him gone now too. Til we meet again be happy

Hi Mom, I'm sure you know I lost my baby Shasta, her spleen ruptured so I had to put her down. It was so hard saying good bye to her she went peacefully I didn't stay when they gave her the shots. I've been crying for days cause I miss her so I figured to make it easier I would get another puppy. I got a 7wk old Siberian Husky she comes in 2days from Denver. I'm naming her Nevaeh which you know is heaven. I have so much love to give her, it won't be the same as Shasta who I will never forget and I know I will be with her and you again. I hope she is with you now, give her a kiss and tell her I love and miss her just like I do you. Til were altogether again you are always in my heart. Brandy is doing really good, Sam well he is getting older. Love you Mom and Shasta

Hi Mom, sorry I haven't visited in awhile but you know I talk to you every nite. Alot has been going on, I had a total knee replacement done and I think the left knee will be next. Kim isn't doing good she has alot of medical issues, copd sleep apnea not to mention her leg from the crash. She's having surgery on the 20th of May, they are taking the plate out and it has to heal for 6 months than she gets a total knee replacement, what's up with her and I having the same surgerys, lol. Sam is doing pretty good for his age, hard to believe he's 94yrs old. He misses you alot and so do I and Joanna really misses her grandma. We all think of you everyday. Brian is ok but his health isn't good either. He finally put me on the house which I guess is good. I'm waiting for the day we meet again, I have no life and am very lonely since you left, I talk to Sam but it just isn't the same as you. I love you Mom so much and miss you more.

Hi Grandma it's me... I miss u so much ... I so wish you were here... I hate it I want you to come back everyday... It has left a hole in my heart and a small cloud... I wish you could see how much weight I've lost... I'm so tiny now... I have lost 140 pounds and I'm in a size 12 pants you would be so happy... We lost Aunt Becky on the 8th to cancer... I wasn't able to go and hold her hand and say goodbye like I did with you and it hurts me so much because I wish I could have been able to go... I wish I could of told her how much I loved her like I did with you... I miss her so much already like I do you... I hate that I'm losing my family like this... I don't want all these holes in my heart and I want this hurt to go away... I don't want to lose anybody else but I know it's apart of life... It sucks... I wish you guys taught me how to live without you here... I just hope you and Aunt Becky are watching over me and know how much I love you both... You will forever be in my heart I love you always ...Fly high my angel's

Hi Mom
Well it's almost 2 years now that you have been gone. I have had a really hard time believing you aren't here with us. I never got to say goodby. I know I haven't wrote on here to you and I'm having a real hard time doing it now. I have so many regrets so many things I wish I could change. I should have called you more went and saw you more. I think of you on Mothers Day and your Birthday the holidays. Karen came to see me this Christmas and we decided to make your butter tarts they came out pretty darn good you would have been proud of us the kids loved them. We thought of you well we where making all 9 dozen yeah that was a lot and our backs felt it but everyone got 2 dozen. We all miss you very much your in our daliy thoughts. Till we are together again. Love you Mom I miss you more then anyone really knows you know me I hold a lot in never showing my feelings.

Hi Mom, well it's been 2yrs since you went in the hospital, everyday I think today I was visiting Mom, I'm still having trouble with your passing, I think about that day every night it just won't go away. I am however doing better, I'm not crying everyday and I still go to the cemetery. The 16th is not gonna be a good day since it will be the 2yr anniversary when you left. I know your ok cause you came to see me and you looked beautiful and happy. I'm still calling Sam and spending time with him. You'll be glad to know I'm not moving to Tennessee, I can't take a chance on it not working plus Brian needs me and Joanna. You should be so proud of Joanna, she is really skinny now and looks beautiful. I don't see her as much as ide like to. I spent Xmas with Kim and Robby it was fun. Brian is ok he had 2 stents put in but is doing good. Well I've caught you up for now. I miss you always and love you so much, not a day goes by I don't think of you, you were the best Mom. Til were together for eternity I will love and miss you everyday. Xoxoxoxo

Mom, I can't believe you have been gone for a year when it seems like just yesterday. I miss you so much and have been lost since you left us. You are always in my heart and at times I feel you with me. I know all you ever wanted for me was to be happy, well I have a plan that will make me happy and it is to move to Tennessee with Alayne but not until Sam is with you. I promised I would look after him and that is what I'm doing. Since you left I've had no one to talk to like I did you so now I go over and talk to Sam about what's bothering me. I love you so so much Mom and I miss you even more. Until we are reunited I will always love and miss you. Xoxoxoxo

Hi Mom, well Christmas has come and gone and we missed you so much, I hope you and Uncle Roy celebrated his Bday. Now to get me threw New Year's and to your 1yr anniversary when you went home with Jesus, they say it gets easier after the first yr but I don't see that happening since I miss you so so much. 2017 really sucked for me Sam and Joanna. I will think of you every day and talk to the special star in the sky every night. I really think I need help I'm having a hard time moving forward and I'm so scared of the day Sam joins you because than I'm on my own with no parents but you 2 will be reunited for eternity than when I come you two better be there to lead me to heaven. I love you and miss you so so much. Until we are reunited I will think of you forever. I love you Mom

Hi Mom, I'm sure you know this but I'm with Alayne in Calif and am finally relaxed and enjoying time with her. It's just like the old days when we were always together. I spent my bday with her except we celebrated 2days after since you passed on the 16th. I've been here for almost 2wks and will probably go home next WK. She bought me a baby ringneck bird and it's being delivered in a few wks. I'm gonna be really sad leaving her because she is moving to Tennessee in December and when Sam passes I probably will move there with her. Joanna is doing good and so is Sam except for them missing you so much. I guess that's it for now, I still really miss you Mom and my heart will never be the same I miss you so much and love you til the day I pass and we're together again. Until we're reunited I love and miss you so so much

Mom, I'm still having a very hard time dealing with your passing, we had such a good relationship we were like best friends, you loved us kids unconditionally no matter how we screwed up you were still there, I miss you so so much and I keep reliving the day you passed when my cheek was against yours and I told you that Uncle Roy was waiting for you and I would take care of Sam til he joins you than I heard the death rattle and you were gone, it broke my heart and it will never mend, Joanna is doing great she had lost a lot of weight and I know you would be proud of her but I'm sure your looking down on her. She turned out to be a great daughter and young woman I'm so proud of her. Sam and I hang out alot but I'm going to see Alayne on my birthday and taking Shasta with me so I don't have to hurry home than I'm stopping at Kim's for awhile, she trys to help me get threw the loss of you and she means well but nothing can help me, I feel lost without you, ide give anything to hear your voice one more time. Well it's 4:30am I should get some sleep, I love you and miss you Mom, until we're together again you will always be in my heart and thoughts xoxoxo

Mom, this isn't getting easier I miss you so much, I feel you with me at times and you are always in my thoughts. I know we will see each other again but in the meantime my heart is still broken. I love you and miss you so much. You would be proud of Joanna she is losing so much weight but I'm sure your looking down at her, I love you Mom until we're together again I miss you every day. Dont worry about Sam I see him every week and spend time together.
