"Mom, miss you all the time, not just a parent, but as a friend as well especially as we both got older.  Enjoyed your company as much or more than most people no matter the age.  Miss talking to you every single day, there's no replacement for that.  You were the best Mom, I love you from the bottom of my heart. Gigi"

"Because we went to Lebanon in April this year it's important to know that this would have made you ,Mom, very happy for us . For the things in life you didn't get to do I know that you would have been supportive and thrilled to see any of your kids do some of those things.For anyone reading this they should know that Sally was a persistent student of knowledge.Knowledge about the world in general and often about culture(Russians,Tudors,the Middle East just to name a few),food and home making,plants and gardening,and much more. She didn't have the opportunity to go to college bc she was more or less required to stay home with her Mother and Father to help raise her youngest siblings and to help her Mother who it seems was often sick. She did get to run her father's store in thomas WV and she did own a dress shop in Smithfield for a short time that we know very little about. She worked at Sparrows Point in Maryland during the War.Always we were told by Sally and some of her siblings how smart she was with her schoolwork and books and that she was shortchanged by not having the opportunity for advanced education and a profession. Still after marriage and with children coming quickly she again had to be the homemaker/caretaker and tried to fulfill her desire for knowledge through avid reading and conversation ,which she liked alot.
She would have been a great student of the world,no one who knew her doubts that. And I think she'd have been a great traveller. If only she could have stood in Abdelli like Diane and I did to think about what it must've been like for her Mom and Dad at the beginning of their lives before they came to America. If she could've seen all we saw in the mountains, monasteries and ancient towns of the old country then I know another portion of her spirit would have been satisfied.I wish for few things these days and one of them is for my mom to have seen us in Lebanon."

"Dearest Mom,  We always look for you for guidance even though you are not here.  Hoping you hear us some  way some how.  I hope you and Dad are taking care of our sweet Evan.  It's just not right.  I have shed so many tears, we all have.  My heart is broken for John, Diane and Evan. Miss you all terribly.  I love you Mom."

"Hi Situ. I'm not so good with words, but I thought I'd wish you a Happy Birthday. Thinking of you today and everyday. Although I don't really remember you, I am grateful for the short time that we got to spend together. I'm thankful that I get to see you through pictures and videos of you and Gidu with me as a baby. Mom always talks highly of you and tells stories about what you were like. She misses you very much. As I'm beginning to start making decisions for college and starting my senior year I can't help but wish you could be here to see me graduate. At times I think about what you might have said or though about me now at 17. Wish you were here for birthdays, Christmas, and other holidays. I would give anything to have the shortest conversation with you, or to just hear your voice. Sometimes I feel like you're here watching me and I try to think about what advice you would give me. Anyways, maybe you aren't presently here with us, but I believe that you are always watching, and I'm grateful for that. Love and miss you and Gidu dearly. Happy Birthday.

Love always,

"Mom,  can't help to say all the time "wish you and dad were here" to be apart of our lives and to know Alison.  You be so proud of her.  I want to believe you and dad were looking down on her on her promotion night in 5th grade as she had a great award given to her as a 5th grader.   I miss you more than ever no matter how old I get.  I miss our phone calls, visits, and coming home to Race Street.  You left us all with such great memories growing up and coming back home to the house we loved. My friends over the years have said your parents were so nice and coming to your house was always fun. You made it very special for us, no matter what.  Holidays or coming home for a weekend there was always something you did to make it special.    One of many memories is when you came to Virginia and I took off work as it was my bday and we had our hair done and went shopping at Tyson's and ate at Don Pablo's in Sterling.  It was such as nice day together.  The time we drove back in that crazy snow storm from Pitt.  Were rin Kaufman's dept store downtown Pitt and we looked out side on the first floor and saw snow.  We decided to leave and driving back we got stuck twice on the road, once near Whitehall you told me to drive and you push the car and once near Perryopolis.  We were in the Blue Datsun (I loved that car) .  Cars every where on route 51 and we thought we make it but cars stopped and we got stuck.  You said don't tell your dad but I'm paying this guy to pull us up the hill and we barely made it home.  What a night that was.  Thanks for the memories mom..... I love you Mom."

"Mom, I am a lot later than I thought I should be on setting this up to commemorate your memory.I can't stand the fact that I don't have the time I want to do things like this.I talk to you and about you often. Jamie recently transferred tape to DVD so we could see and hear you again. I need to look for more bc we all want you back and these little films are the best we can get. You know I'm not a big believer but I want to believe that you are visiting with Aunt Mike even if it's on a heavenly phone call.You may be happy to know that when I questioned Evan last week he is a believer though he never says much he really wanted to memorialize you and his Gidu,Therefore the big tattoo. plus he knew we wouldn't flip out about the tattoo that way.There's so much I want to tell you so with this memorial I will. Love you always.Diane says Hi and she loves you too."
