Still can’t believe you’re gone. Doesn’t feel like it’s been 7 years. So I hear Sandy is up there with you. I can just see the 2 of you, God has his hands filled with you 2. Miss you.
Continue to look down on Bob. Take care of him.
I know he has his mom with you as well. You guys continue to watch over Bob.
Love you

I can't believe it's been 3 years.
And almost a year later I lost my father to the same thing on June first.
I hope the two of you have met in heaven. Miss you both.
Steve, Bob is doing well and keeps us all in his heart. I'm so happy to see his posts. He keeps me smiling. He truly has helped me through yours and my fathers passing. Keep watching over him. Love to you.

Hi Steven.....

I just learned from your nephew Arlen in Afghanistan that your mother has departed us here on earth and will be joining you, your brother and your dad.You are all together again now and can have the fun you once had before.  I think of you daily and I feel you with me always.

 

Love Always,

Bob

It's been a week you have been home

Steven~

You have been here at home in your new home (the urn) and I am doing a bit better just knowing that you are here with us.  We still miss you like crazy but being able to see you there puts me a bit more at peace.  I still have not found your final spot just yet so rigght now I have you on the table in the breakfast area - it gives you a great view of your front loader washer and dryer that you loved so much <smile>.  I love waking up in the morning and seeing the sun hitting your urn - - it throws out so much color it's amazing, it's just like you were.

Well, time to hit the shower and then the office - I think it's going to be a 1/2 day for me.  I plan on coming home and getting some more stuff in order here, then tomorrow the gardener comes.  Once that is done, the couch and chair in the den are off to the curb (bulky item pick up on Monday).  I will call Clyde, pick the tile and the job will begin.  I plan on painting and replacing the blinds too, then new furniture - - still on the fence regarding the bead board but I will keep you posted on that <smile>.

 

I have you on my mind all the time, when I wake up, when I go to sleep and all throughout the day.  I talk to you all the time but you know that, right?

 

LoveYa~

Bob

Today's plan - Go to work, walk down to check out your new home (the urn).  I hope it's all that I think it will be and that you will be pleased with my choice.  You will be here back at home with us this weekend if I have anything to say about it.

Shellie has picked her baby urn and I think she will be getting the bracelet with the cross (which you will be in as well).  I know how much you loved your crosses.

I am asking them to keep about 6 tablespoons of you out in seperate baggies so I can have them placed into different pieces of jewelry for myself as well.  I hope to find a cross that suits me as well.  I know how much  it would mean to you if I wore one and I promise when I find the right one for you, I will.

Love Always, I miss you so......
