I cant believe tomorrow is a whole year that you have been gone. I wish you were here. Even though years may have passed between us I was comforted knowing you were there if I needed you. I was also comforted knowing you knew the same of me. I miss you and love you, my Chickaweena Pimento Head Sister, XOXOXO! I cherish every memory and will never forget all the years we were BFFs!

I'm thinking of you all the time, but with an extra heavy heart this week. Tomorrow is your birthday. Dad will be in chemo. Scott and I are taking David and the kids up to the beach (your favorite place) to send some wishes up to heaven. I wish we could celebrate the way we did last year instead. I miss you.
Posted by Michele Zawadzki on 1st October 2013
It's your birthday month, I remember when our birthday months meant the world to us and if we were lucky enough to have our day fall on a Friday or Saturday so we could spend it at the mall it was the best ever. I think of you often and can't believe you are not here. I miss you! XOXOXO

Missing you so much here at Seabrook Beach, Missy. You always looked forward to our annual beach trips. I'm so thankful hat last summer was one of the best summers ever for you. XO Momā¤

I am watching the Boston Strong Concert and Extreme just performed More Than Words. I remember belting those lyrics out with you so many times. I miss you! I remember during the part that says close your eyes and just reach out your hand, we would close our eyes and touch hands. We were quite dorky. I wish you were here b/c I know if you were watching you would have this same memory!

I have been thinking about you a lot. I am sitting and eating Jelly Belly Jelly Beans and am remembering the time you got a huge box for Easter. We sat there for hours biting them in 1/2 and making combinations and having each other try them. Then we were on such a sugar high we went walking circles around your dining room table for hrs singing silly songs. Miss Ya! XOXOXO

I miss you so much Missy. I still can't believe you're gone. You were a beautiful sister and aunty. Emma and I think about you every single day. We will keep your memory alive and strong for Scotty and Brooklyn. I hope you smiled down from Heaven when I gave Brooklyn your name <3 She will always know about her aunty. XOXO

Missy, I was driving through Derry the other day and drove past where the coffee house was. I was flooded with memories and as tears streamed down my face I was smiling at all the memories. How many days/nights did we spend there? I remember coffee, poetry, music, boyfriends, and just being ourselves without a worry about what others thought! I miss you!

I'm Thinking of you on Valentine's Day, as I do every day. I remember how much you loved getting a heart shaped box of chocolates and a stuffed animal when you were little, Missy. Love you xo

Posted by Michele Zawadzki on 25th January 2013
I was thinking of you today as I was driving to work. Extreme's More Than Words, came on the radio and I remembered our dance and how we would belt those lyrics out then touch our hands together. Then the Jesus statue you got me the day I got my first car (yes I still keep it in my car, I have since the day you gave me it) fell. I knew that was your way of saying, I am here with you!

Missy, Michele and I had many skiing "adventures"! Fun times! Oh the stories I could tell........
Posted by Jennifer Kolifrath Koener on 24th January 2013
I was thinking about you yesterday afternoon and Addie came up to me and showed me a shell (we have a million in this house), and she said, "Momma, I remember at the beach house I was sitting with Aunty Missy on the deck and I found this shell and I showed her and she thought it was beautiful." Miss you. xo

Missy, I remember you as a lovely young girl who was a pleasure to have in class. You were always polite and gave 100%...couldn't ask for more. You have left a hole in many hearts and will always be missed and thought of fondly.

I was cleaning our linen closet today and came across the two towels you bought the girls this summer at the beach. Made me stop and think about what a beautiful soul you are. I miss you so much. xo
Posted by Michele Zawadzki on 14th January 2013
All this ski talk makes me think of the time you and I went skiing and we followed some boys we thought were cute. We were on the chair lift 2 or 3 chairs behind them. When it was time to get off we were so busy paying attention to the boys we forgot. The man had to stop it and we had to jump a bit. He then yelled at us b/c he knew why we were not paying attention. Too funny.
Posted by Maureen Mcgovern on 13th January 2013
Missy, thinking about the time i took you and Colleen skiing at Bradford Ski hill. Colleen and I were frantic because we could't find you anywhere. Finally found out you were at the first aid house. I was so scared. You were laying on a cot with a facecloth accross your forehead. Thank God you were okay. I know your son David will be as good a skier as his Mom. Love you and miss you.Aunt
Posted by Linda Kolifrath on 13th January 2013
Missy, You'd be so proud of David. He took his 1st ski lesson yesterday at Loon's adaptive program. He seems excited about his next lesson today! Miss you so much xo Mom
Posted by Jennifer Kolifrath Koener on 11th January 2013
I miss you Missy. This past weekend David slept over and he and Addie dressed up for a tea party. I was telling him about how I used to dress you up, when we lives on Hickory Lane. We would get dressed up in our Easter shawls and run up and down and dance in the hallway. So many good, happy memories of our childhood. I love you.
Posted by Allison Robb on 11th January 2013
I'm thinking of you as always Missy. Today I can't help feeling like this was all a bad dream, and I want to wake up now. I know it's been almost two months, but I still can't believe you are gone. I hope you know that you are loved and missed so much. You will *never* be forgotten. Emma talks about you every day. This morning she asked if you'll be "watching" her dance this summer. <3
Posted by Maureen Mcgovern on 10th January 2013
Missy, Know your son will have the same talent you had for skiing. Enjoyed taking you and Colleen skiing so many times in Haverhill. You loved skiing and I bet he will too, Miss you so much. Love Auntie Maureen

You know, as I think about it, sending you to St. Mary' s High School was truly worth the tuition and driving both ways each day. Sending Ali there was decided by how wonderfully the Sisters and faculty treated you. They were the ones who submitted your portfolio to The Museum for application to the G+T program. Acceptance was quite an honor!
Posted by Crystie Hoffman on 3rd January 2013
You guys are such a strong family! I didn't know Missy well but I do have memories of her and when David was a baby. I know she meant a lot to my mother and she is truly missed. I think about you all often and I love seeing all the fun things you guys are doing with David. My heart goes out to all of you! Always in my prayers!
Posted by Dave Kolifrath on 3rd January 2013
Hope I am doing this correctly ;-). Anyway, you had been selected for the Boston Museum Of Fine Arts Gifted And Talented Program. (a Saturday 3hour class). I was so proud of you! Didn't mind driving you in each week, and was so happy to surprise you with the drafting table to use for your sketches. Miss you. Love you.
Posted by Dave Kolifrath on 3rd January 2013
Was straightening out the basement, and my tools. I use your old drafting table as a workbench . I remember buying that for you. Actually saw a sign for a used "professional" drafting table at a house, ironically , next to The Fairways! Table was huge. Had to disassemble it to move it! This was when you were a senior in High School. To be cont.

Also, David was here last weekend and got all of us into the Harry Potter movies. I could barely keep up, yet he knew every detail, name, etc. He is such an amazing person. Love you.

Missy, Mom gave me the Alex and Ani bracelet I gave you this past Mother's Day. I think about you all the time, especially when I put on the bracelet every morning. Each bracelet has a different significance to me, and I find comfort and feel peace every time I put yours on. Miss you. xo
