Sis, Today has been 8 long years since you left us. I want you to know that we miss you everyday. Have so many memories of us as children and how much fun whenever we would go out of town with mommy shopping. How I would always get the two of you laughing so hard you would almost pee your pants. You would be so proud of Brendan, he is getting to be such a big boy. I don't see him as much as I would like. But I hope some day soon that will change. I love you with all my heart and miss you so much. I am so happy that our sisters Debbie and Sherry are with you now. They fought long battles with there breast cancer. And I am happy to say I'm 5 years clean last September. We have had some really bad years lately. I pray that things calm down for awhile now. Hard to believe it has been eight years, sometimes it seems like a life time ago and other days it seems just like yesterday. So happy you are with Jesus. But sad you left us to soon. Thinking of you always. Hugs and love to each of you. Your Sis, Brenda

Hi Sis you had a Birthday Saturday the 27th, I thought about you alot today and thought how different things would be if you were here. We had a lot of good laughs over the years. I know that you would love to be here and see your son and how he has grown. I know your watching over him, and I will always keep my promise to protect him no matter what I have to do. He is my nephew but in some ways I feel he is my son since I made a promise to always be there for him and watch over him. I do the best that I can. I just wish mommy and I was able to take him and do things with him more, and I know Brendan would love to spend more time with us, he has expressed that and I know you would like that also. We see him when we can. Mommy as you know is getting old and she loves to be able to spend as much time with him as possible, but she doesn't feel good enough to go there like she would like. He is back to school now and he is in 3rd grade. You would be so proud of him just like we all are. Life would be so different if you were her. I love and miss you so much sis. Happy 49th Birthday Terri!
