I light this candle not just in memory but to keep the flame in my heart burning. I miss you and love you so much that i cant breath at times. I cant go in ur house still. I make it to the porch and panic sets in. Ben took me to see you few weeks ago and it felt good to know i can find u now when i need to be with u. Ur always in my heart. I always talk to you in my prayers. I will never understand why those we love are taken from us but to know u was a big part of my life helps to be ok 5 yrs later. But one hug one more time hearing ur voice one more anything...all leads to one day i will get to see u again. The miles and galaxies between us mean nothing cause ur always here with me in my heart.

It has been hard watching Taylor grow and graduate, and theres nothing I can do about these babies of mine growing too fast! proud of them , but they won't stay little. (ha!ha) wish you were here to have our Kitchen table girl talks. I miss that and you so much. Love you!

We're about to spend our 2nd Xmas without you. It's no easier than last Xmas. God what I'd give to see you sitting holding Mariah in your lap. She will be 1 tomorrow! and she's been walking for days! I thought about you all day at her party. I know you was there. I feel you around me A Lot. Times going by and the babies are growing too fast. Dad's still so sad. Keep watching over us!

Your face is always on my mind.A smile I've seen a million times, even when you felt bad.I look back at memories I forgot I had, and I still smile even though it still hurts me. I know the meaning of A Mother's Love is like no other every time I look at my own. I hope you always hear me. Thank God you will be my guardian angel for the rest of my life! I miss you more than you can ever know

from christina I think about you when I look at your new gran baby, it makes me sad knowing that she won't know you only threw us. I feel some comfort in seeing what a wonderful mother crissy has turned out to be. Taylor is the best big sister and jake is such a loving brother.

I thought of you today, but that is nothing new. I thought about you yesterday, and days before that too. I think of you in silence and often speak your name. All I have are memories and a picture in a frame ; Happy Birthday Grandma, I love you so much <3

Mariah turned 3 months old 3 days ago. She's such a good baby! Never hardly cries. Its funny how bossy she is. Wonder where she gets that from? She already had her Daddy and the rest of us wrapped round her little finger! We all miss you soo much!!

Yesterday was Christmas without you and on Dec,22 my daughter Mariah was born. It was so hard being in labor without you here even though several times I felt you standing beside me. The next morning Mariah got choked and quit breathing, the nurse took her from me and rushed her down the hall.I know it was God and you that saved her. You whispered in my ear that she would be ok.and she was. Thanks

Lots of love and prayers to the family! ♥

It's a few weeks from Christmas and it's hard to believe me, you, and Taylor aren't baking cookies. I miss you taking me to my prenatal doctor appointments, even though I know you are really there with me in spirit. I'm doing my best to stay strong (thats what I've learned from you) and to take care of Dad. You knew I would, God what I'd give to talk to you even on the phone.
Posted by Kristina Johnson on August 27, 2010
Rose was one if the sweetest person I know here and I will miss her dearly!!!
Posted by Crissy Scalf on August 26, 2010
There's not a night that goes by that I don't lay awake for hours and think of what all we would do if we had one more day together. I hope I inherit just Half the emotional strength that you had. Sorry you're body was weaker than most. Keep visiting me in my dreams.. and each time I see a butterfly...I can't help but think it's sign you're watching over me. I Promise I WILL see you some day!
