I text Bill and John weekly. I wish I could talk but Bill and John work so many hours. Today is Johns daugherr Miranda's 25th birthday. Where has time gone? SHE now has 2 sons. They are cuties and John and Lisa love them as well as ALICIA adores them.  I visit the grave yard every week and clean the graves off. Will talk to you later, mom. Tell Dad and others up there I said I love them and miss them dearly. Hugs and kisses tp all. Love and think of you , Dad and the family daily. All  my love daughter Sarah

"Happy belated birthday mom, I did not get to the grave yard yesterday but I was there today on Valentines day.  It was snowing to beat the band, you used to say.Hope you had a good birthday with a lot of the family? Pat said she was out and put flowers on your grave and that someone else had put roses on it also. The kids are growing up so fast.  Deann and her boyfriend have been engaged for a year today.In about a year and a half she is getting married. Amber is fine as well as Aly and Mielikki except for colds.  Mike has been working in his work shop at times. I'm doing nothing but getting fat. We have a new pastor where we go to church at here in Cedarville. Guess I better get ready for bed as it is now 10:30pm and Aly has a dr. appt. @11:20 for a rash and Mielikki has a dentist appt at 9:00am.  I hope you and dad are warmer then we are, as everyday I learn to dislike the cold weather?  All my love to you mom,dad, and brother.  I love all of you very much Sarah miss you and love you with all my heart."

"mom, it is hard to believe it has been 5 years since you left to go to a far better place.  We as a family miss you and the children (Aly and Mielikki) ask about you frequently.  We had a good Thanksgiving.  Dee and Raymond are in Denver now with his family. It was lonely not having her here this year, it was the 1st. one she hasn't been home. It rained, I was out to the cemetary with Aly to the graves. Everyone is fine here. Amber and Mikes mom came for lunch with us.  I love and miss you so much it hurts. Someone put flowers on your grave Char or Bill.  I TEXT or talk to John and Bill. It is getting late just wanted to talk to you and say give dad and brothers and all family members and friend a big hug and tell them I love them. love ya mom with all my heart love Sarah"

Charlie is doing well with his health,I speak or text John every week. Jerry was up from Tenn. but only saw a few of the family. John is coming up in Sept. for Lynn"s wedding. Kevin is getting married on Oct 3rd 2015 to Christina his high school sweetheart.  She will be the first Crase teacher in Forreston. I text or call brother Bill frequently, he has aged so much in the last year ,as all he does is work his butt off for Brenda to spend on Lynn and Paisley.I talk to Char sometimes but she is on the go a lot. Pat is still the same.  MIelikki and Aly are getting ready to start school, Mielikki is going into 4th and Aly is going into 7th this year how time flys.  Well Mielikki is up so I will go but I'm sending hugs and kisses to all family there with you, will write again soon mom, with all my love Sarah"

"miss you mom everyday, sorry I did not write on here on Wed. but had a very busy day.  Mielikki and I went to the grave yard and I cleaned off all the graves. Shed some tears like I always do when I go there.  It does not seem like 4 years but it has been.  You would be proud of Forreston today for winning the State championship.  Epc also won for Amber and Deann for their 1st championship also. Wish you could have been here to see it but you and dad had the best seats in the house.  Children are growing bigger everyday and still give me headaches, but I love them with all my heart.  Will talk to you on Sunday. All my love mom, Sarah"

"mom, it does not seem like it has been almost 4 years since you left us here on earth, but time sure does pass quickly.  Deann now has a nice young man as a boyfriend and is doing well.  Amber and the children are fine. Aly is now a 6th grader and Mielikki is a 3rd grader in school.  They both are getting good grades and growing like weeds,haha.  I wish you where here to see them as they have some problems but are my pride and joy.  Mike is doing better and continues to lose weight.  I MYSELF AM AS GOOD AND EVEN BETTER THEN i HAVE BEEN FOR YEARS. I speak or text brother John several times a week and brother Bill now and then. I talk to Char once a week and Pat at least 3 or 4 times a week.  Zed Pat's grandson won their football championship on sat the 18th of Oct 2024, proud of him, zaden and zane are going like little weeds also. I go to the cemetary every week and take care your, dad, and brothers graves.  I hope you enjoy you birds I put on there?  Just sent Mielikki off to school, boy I know what you meant about stubborn children,  Aly left for school at 645 this morning. I doen't talk to Buck much only 1 or 2 times a month but he appears to be doing well.
love you mom, give dad and Gary and Fred a big hug and kiss for me and tell them I love them. Tell everyone else hello for me also,
                             love to all,sarah"

"Hey mom, it's me Sarah, sorry I haven't talk to you and dad on here but , I do every Sunday I go to the cemetary. I also miss you and dad and bro very much.  Aly and Mielikki are getting ready to start school on Aug 19 this year.  Amber bought all the supplies for school and some clothes for them. She is a big help now that things are going better for her.  Deann is doing fine, but works to hard and long hours.  Do't see much, maybe 2 or 3 times a month, but she does call me.  My health is better.  I wish there was a way for you to tell me who took you angel and birds off your grave?  I have and idea and you know who I mean?  Thank you for stopping me from getting myself in trouble with you know who, I almost called her and chewed her out but stopped.  Kevin is getting married next spring.  He is planning to move to North Carolinia soon.  Your boy Billie is losing his hearing and he needs glasses.  I talk or text him every week.  I also talk to bro John or text him weekly.  I hear from Buck sometimes but not every week.  Char is at the hospital as a cleaner.  Pat and Ed leave tonight to go to Houston to take things to Ed nephew. (hope they have a safe trip).  Charlie don't hear from him much or the other boys. Char and I talk at least once a week. Guess I better let you go and visit with the family.  It's been 2 years since my father-in- law passed today, where has the time gone too.
