"Hey Mom!! Mandi and I are planning on going out for you tonight. It has been 6 years now and I miss you more than ever. So much has happened and although, I know that you have been with me spiritually, I wish you were here so we could talk about it together. Mandi and I are starting to look at houses!! YAY!! Life is so short and we are trying to enjoy it every chance we get. We all miss and love you very much. Talk to you soon, love Michael ♡"

"Good morning again my love. Yes, the date today is the date but yesterday was the day. I miss you more today than I did yesterday. I will always love you Sarah and no one will ever take your place. No one could or can make me feel like you did. You were, and still, are my life. I cherish every minute we ever spent together and I think of all the silly stuff we use to do. I love you Sarah and will always think of you and our life together. Until that day my love."

"Good morning honey. Well, here it is another year gone by. Today is the day that you were taken from me. Even though today is the 6th, its Thursday and that was the day you left me so abruptly. I miss you so much Sarah. Sitting here at the cabin, looking at our wedding picture and remembering the wonderful times we had here and just our life together. I miss your laugh, I miss you smile, I miss thought beautiful blue eyes. Honey, you are my life and I will always love and miss you. I'll see you later in my dreams. I want to hold you one more time and tell you how much I love you. Take care honey and remember you are missed very much."

"Hey...mama!! So of course Mother's Day was Sunday, and of course it was another day that we missed spending with you.  We missed you so  much, your smile, your hugs, your voice, just you!  So much is happening, and dang I need your advice on so much.  The kids are great.....Huck is getting ready for high school, just turned 14....he's so handsome/smart.  However...It's tough deciding where to send him, because he has a few choices, and between him, and me we cannot seemed to make one.  It drives me insane...because I just hate to make the wrong decision?? Lucie is beautiful, smart, active, and is just like Chip.  She'll be starting 4th grade, and has really seemed to take off this year with her grades.  Chip is good....he's the same.  Just wants to be on the water.  Life has it's ups, and downs...I'm/we're just trying to get through it the best we can.  I dreamed of you the other night....and this dream was uncommon....you were sleeping, but then started faded away??  It woke me up crying, and just missing you something awful!! Please never leave us, and please always continue to watch over all of us!! Happy Mother's Day Mama!!  We all love, and adore you forever, and always!! I'm attaching a drawing Lucie drew for me, and of course I need no explanation about the picture, but when she gave it to me she just said "I just wanted to see you smile...mama"!!"

I can see your smiling face and bright eyes. I love you honey and will always love you. My surgery went well the other day. Everyone at the hospital was very nice and professional. I wish you were here to help me re-couperate. I could use your tender touch and beautiful smile. Honey, I love you so much and miss you terribly.

Miss you more every day and wish you were here experiencing this journey with us. Could use your words and guidance through some of the many stresses we face.

I know you are here with me in spirit but oh, what I would give to be able to sit down with you, have some coffee and talk about all the good times and the bad times we have experienced. I'm scared Mom, I'm scared and nervous of all the changes we are about to face but I know that you will be there to help guide me and give me the strength to persevere. Lol, I know just what you would say! You would say that I'm so smart, that you are so proud of me, that everything will be okay and that I'm going to do great! Oh god, what I would give just to hear you say these things. I miss you so so much Mom. Please stay close to us and protect us while we embark on this new adventure. Love always,"

"Sweet lady.....you are so very missed. As the many tributes display, your soul and heart are something that is needed/missed in this world. But the memories you left bring smiles and joy. Thank you for being with Michael and I as we often feel your sweet presence. As you protected your babes on earth, I believe you are still protecting just as a guardian angel.

God Bless you and your love for life. Hope one day we can have that cup of coffee and oh my gosh your awesome chicken and dumplings! Love you!"

"Hey Mom! 4 years today, seems like it's only been a blink of an eye. As I'm writing this, the soundtrack to "Dances with Wolves" came on, It's good to know that you are always with me!! Amanda and Memphis are doing well. Today will always be a hard day for me but at least I know that there is a margarita waiting for me in celebration of you! People say that time will heal but no amount of time can make us forget the day that god took you away from us. He must have had a good reason to need you up there with him. Even though you aren't here physically, your love and wisdom will always be here to light our path. Love Always, ♥Michael♥"

"Good morning honey. Well it has been four years today that the Lord took you from me. There's not a day go by that I don't miss you and think about you. I'm just getting back to the cabin today. Wanted to be here today for you. From the sounds of Kim's tribute, seems like everyone was together for the fourth. Shame no one called to see if I was doing anything, could have seen them all. Baby, I am so lonely without you. My days and nights are filled with thoughts of us and how happy we were. I know one day we will be together again and that will be the happiest day of my life. Just like the first night I met you. Well honey, I won't linger on. You know that I genuinely love you and miss you with all my heart. I'll see you in my dreams tonight and will hold you in my arms. Love you sweetheart."

"Hi Sarah,
Emmy pulled her tigers down from her shelf last night and said, "I miss Grandma Sarah." She talks about you and sleeps with her "Sarah Bear" all the time. Mark doesn't say much about you, it still hurts him too much. I know one day he will be able to talk about you with a smile and not a tear, but he isn't there just yet. Everything reminds him of you and things Emmy does makes him think of you and how much he wishes he could share her with you. I guess you know she made the President's Honor Society. All A's since she has been in school. She got your brains!! How I wish you were here to help with her. She is already smarter than both her Dad and I! She wants to be a cardiothorasic surgeon. That way she can save someone's Mom or Grandma when she grows up.
We miss you Sarah. I hope you know how much your family loves you and wishes you were here to give us just one of your awesome hugs! I will take care of Mark for you. Love you bunches always and forever."

"Hey mama!!  I'm sitting at work really, really trying to keep my head into the day, but I cannot.  I've been thinking of life, family, you, and just wishing I could talk like we always did.  Michael, and Mandy came down the other night (both of them doing great...just need to move back to SC), and it was an amazing visit.  Sara came as well....first time to 230 Walnut Ave in forever (she is doing great), and while it was so wonderful to have that moment it made me very, very sad.  It hit me that our family is so far apart, and not close at all how you would've wanted for us.  I'll try my best to work on that....we need it.  I've got about million questions, and a million things I wish I could talk with you about...life, family, you...and I know I can talk to you, but I SOOOOO miss your answers about life, family, and you!!!  We love you mama/grandma Sarah...and I cannot put into words how much we/I miss you.  Lucie looks so much like you it's crazy....Huck of course is as handsome as ever...though he think's he's short or too fat?!?! He's in that in between stage...he just prays he gets taller then dad...shhhhh don't laugh!! (: They both are so smart, but of course Huck worries like that trait you know so well, and Lucie is Lucie...sweet, and sour!!! Next few years should be fun...and I'll ask for a lift on that mother's curse now please?!? lol...(:  Chip is the same...laid back, and shrimping!! Tomorrow is always an awful day to have to remember....it's not the only day that hits me hard, but it's the day that took you from us, which makes me cold, mad, sad, unhappy, and just pissed.  BUT as you know as mother's will do...I'll jump out of bed, take care of my family, and do my job....but will be thinking of the loss that has, and I feel will always leave a little part of me numb!!  Keep looking after all of us!!"

Anne Murray's song 'Can I have this dance" came on this morning and it brought back some old memories of when we used to dance to it "Can I have this dance for the rest of my life, will you be my partner for the rest of my life". Honey I miss you so much I can't begin to explain how much I hurt without you. I love you baby and happy anniversary again. I love you!!!!"

Me and Lucie made sausage cheese balls last night and it was such an amazing memorial that reminded me of the past.  We have missed you so much...this time of year is always so hard, and there has been so many days lately where I needed to talk to you.  Huck says hi, Chip says he misses your dressing, and Lucie says to give you kisses!!!

I look back on all the Christmas holidays we had and there is no measurement of how much motherly love you gave me. Mom, I cannot begin to express how much I love you and how grateful I am to be the man you've turned me into.
