"Dearest Michael, it is Christmas and Zak and his wife (my daughter I always wanted) are here until Jan 2, 2017.  I can't stop grieving for the loss of you.  I want to be with you Michael and I hope that this will turn into a reality.  I love you sweetheart....donna"

"Dearest Michael, the anniversary of your death came and went.  I could not go to your headstone as I was too heartbroken.  I did light a candle for you.  Will I ever meet you again in heaven??? I am so lost without you and I am dying bit by bit every day without you.  Zak and Thata married October 3, 2017 and I hope they will love each other forever the way we loved each other and I still do love you forever. donna"

"Michael today is August 20, 2017 and I have a lump in my throat and tears in my eyes.  Steve Sarli died in November 2001.  He and Monica got divorced and he had to kids but kept calling Monica and said it was a mistake.  She wrote a book.  I was never aware how wealthy they were or how addicted they were; Steve to the end.  He had a heart attack at 47.  Zak just got engaged to Thata yesterday.  I was happier when we got engaged.  Andy and his wife had identical twin girls Thursday.  The solar eclipse is tomorrow but it will be cloudy.  It doesn't matter, I never go out.  I have Hashimoto's disease, and lost my appetite.  I miss you so much and wish I went before you.  It wasn't your death that killed me, it was all the days that followed by your absence.  Then when Zak moved to San Diego it was like you died again.  I am so lost, but I know I lost my will.  I am just waiting to die.  I just want to be next to you.  I hope there is an afterlife where I can see you again because right now I am in hell.  I love you and miss you terribly.  Sleep in heavenly peace without pain my love, donna"

"Michael, it is July 25 and I have lost my will to go on.  I raised our sun/son who now resides in San Diego.  I think something in me snapped because he is so far away.  I just want to be with you again.  I just cry and cry every day and every night.  I love you and miss you M, love d....."

"Michael, it is 5/4/2017 and I feel so lost without you.  I don't know how much longer I can go on.  My life has no more meaning.  Zak moved to San Diego and is about to marry his Brazilian girlfriend in June so she won't get deported.  I like her a lot.  What really hurt more than anything was that Zak moved so far away and I am losing my will to live.  I love and miss you, donna"

"Michael sweetheart, I miss you terribly and now Zak moved to San Diego, so far away from me.  I wish you would send a signal to your son because he wants to get married at age 24 to a very nice Brazilian girl who is 27 to keep her in the USA.  What do you think?  Do you think?  Am I thinking too hard?  I feel so lost without you.  It should have been me to go first and not you.  I love you beyond the realms of space and time.  Love, d"

"Sweet Michael, I will be lighting a candle in your memory in a week.  I miss you so very much and Zak will be moving to San Diego with his girlfriend after Christmas.  He is living in South America right now with her.  My life is completely empty, so many years and so many tears. Much love and sleep in the sweetest slumbers.  You were the one who opened my eyes and now they only shed tears...."

"Dearest sweetest Michael, I can no longer live on this earth without you.  Your sister said "I manipulated you" and you know as well as I do that you could never be manipulated.  Your son is in South American living with a woman.  I am all alone in this terrible sadness.  I don't want to stay here anymore.  I want to only be with you.  I went through two floods, and I am so overwhelmed.  Very soon, I will be next to you.  I just need to get some things in order.  I love you"

"My dearest Michael, today you would have been 71 and I now am 64.  I got my plot next to you back finally.  No one can ever take it again from me.  I can't wait until I am with you again away from this very sad and lonely world.  I miss you terribly.  I have not slept for a day and as always I am working on the house that once was a home.  Zak is going to South America June for at least six months; probably more.  He has become almost a stranger to me.  He is not like you Michael he is a bit like my father...He has become arrogant and he has lied to me and I do not care to go on for him anymore.  David Bowie passed away two days after his birthday.  He was 69 and he had liver cancer yet did an album; Black star.  I will go to the cemetery today, but I am so tired from constantly cleaning and Zak is not helping.   He is travelling all over, and wants to get away from me.  I stayed here as long as I did for him.  I am looking forward to being next to you and never having to open my eyes again.  I really wonder if you even know that I exist.  You are in the universe and said your love for me exceeds all bonds of space.  I am so lonely for you and I have a lot of nerve damage in my mouth and feet so I am always in pain. I love and miss you M.  All of my endless love, donna"

"Hi Michael, I was just on the phone with my brother. After so much loss I would hope to re establish a relationship with him.  Zak is in South America living vicariously through you (he told me this).  David Bowie died and I cried watching his last album made while he was dying of cancer. I will never forget how you took me to see him and got the best seats just for me.  You were the captain of my heart and always will be, but you sailed away one  day and never came back.  It is hard to get beyond you, but the more you love the more you lose when the love of your mate is taken away.  Life is the strangest thing that ever happened to me.  I miss and love you...d"

"Michael, it is my 64th birthday and I am in so much pain over the loss of you.  I just want to be with you.  I am so very sad and crying endless tears.  Will I ever see you again?  I miss you with every heartbeat and my tears have flooded the house.  I love you and I miss you and am just glad to know you are out of pain.  But it should have been me; I can't stand this much more...d"

"My dearest Michael, it is Christmas 2015.  Your sun is more like you than you were like yourself; he is so awesome, just like you.  I love and miss you sweetheart.  Please let me know if you ever hear my heart. I cannot dream of you or perhaps I awaken and forget.  I miss you terribly.  Evie was here and I am happy to say that she made me feel better about the situation.  She is married but is leaving her husband as they did not work out.  Zak loves you and is almost a carbon copy of you.  I love you Mykal, donna"

"Michael, my dad did not cut me out.  Money is not the object, as no money can buy  back the family I lost.  I miss you and I want my plot and I keep praying God will hear me please, please give me my plot.  Rest in peace beautiful man, taken so young and forever changing our plans...Zak is a good man and handsome too, just like you, love donna"

"Dearest Michael, I stayed in bed between 9/29 and 9/30 because that is the moment you stopped gracing this earth.  I am so lonely for you, and I am so very alone.  Can you hear anything I say?  Can you see the tears that are non stop?  Now I have no plot next to you.  I will let Zak know in a letter to burn me and put my ashes under the soil above your heart.  I love and miss you, donna"

"Don Moy visited your memorial and I emailed him.  He remarried and has beautiful children and a beautiful wife.  You left me too soon all alone in my own life.  I miss you so much.  Sleep in beautiful peace.  I hope you like the song I play for you.  I want it played at my funeral."

"I am sorry I did not visit you on Father's day Michael, but you are always/all ways in my heart.  I was just too tired to go.  I feel so alone without you and now I have no plot.  My father broke a broken heart.  I will never understand why, but there are endless questions of all those who lose their loved ones.  I miss talking to my dad but he is now free of his wheelchair to run free with the wind and I hope he is happy.  I miss you so much.  Zak loves and misses you and is now wearing some of your clothes.  Can you see him Michael can you see me?  Can you hear anything.  I just pray you are in a place of bliss with no more pain and no more sorrow, but still think it should have been me as you were the one that held this family together and I feel weaker each day and have a fear I may be losing my mind."

"My dad died Michael, and my Auntie Ann was buried the week after my dad was buried.  I am now an "orphan"...I love and miss you Michael, and Zak misses you too, he is a wonderful man; very much like you...Much love, donna"

"Easter hopped away and passed me by.  We used to celebrate and dressed Zak so cute.  But I was alone this Easter and knew not what day it was.  I was covered in my sheets once warmed by you.  Nothing will warm my heart that cries each night and when the morning comes I sigh that it was not a dream I dreamt....It seems like only yesterday, that you were here to relinquish fear, you said everything would be alright, but that changed the day you left and turned out my light.   I miss and love you more than words can say, and only want to be with you and one day, I will when it is time for me to pass away. d"

"On your birthday you would have been 70 years old, however you will remain forever young as I age and grow old alone.  I now am sixty three and seven years older than you; once you were seven years older than me.  Not a day goes by my dearest love that I do not cry.  I laid a white rose on your grave.  On the right side is the place I will go when it is my time and I beg of God to   please bring you back to me to be one again and share eternity. I love you and miss you sweet beautiful man taken too soon from  my plan.  Thank you for Zak who I love unconditionally.  He is the greatest gift ever given to me....endless love and tears, donna"

"My heart bleeds for you... I am losing it Michael, I miss you terribly.  I am not good for Zak.  I love him perhaps too much.  I am going through hell.  It should have been me and not you that went.  You loved life and everyone loved you.  I am a shell and I am lost I am really a dead person now living in hell."
