"5 years... not possible. Got your breadbox on my kitchen counter and the cat magnet still falls off all the time. It has a little picture of you and Nick at Halloween when he was 6 years old, what a terrific grandma you were. I appreciate it more and more as time passes."
"Thinking of you and missing you. Been looking thru old photos, planning to do more with Nick on his next visit. We both miss you very much."
"Changes are in the wind, Mom. I become more like you every day."
"You would be so proud of Nick, your legacy continues in him, but I don't know how you were so laid back as a parent when I went thru changes. I know I'm supposed to let him work things out on his own but I need to borrow your attitude in order to do that."
"Heavy on my mind, heavy on my heart. I'm leaning on you today."
"Happy Mother's Day, Mom."
"I just get up in the morning and try to climb the mountain every day, like you did so well. You inspire me, I admire you."
"Your anniversary's almost upon us. I know your strength will run in our veins as we mark the day. BTW I paid that debt you owed."
"I think about you every day Mom, and I always will."
"News of a memorial service held 09/05/12, is posted in the Stories tab."
"I miss you Mom. Every day. I need your strength."
