ForeverMissed

That's a beautiful message Keisha. I wish I would have done more to save her, my sister. I wish I understood the disease better.  I try to learn, everyday, because of my sister. I am no closer to seeing why we had to lose her too soon.  It's a tragedy that I will never overcome nor understand.

Val had a beautiful sunset on her day of passing though and of course on Valentines Day we buried her. Red, her favorite color.  Please put a flower for me on her grave until I can come again. I was there on Val's Birthday this year and left a Red Rose.

Mom today marks the day we buried you 12 years ago. I will never ever forget the last time we seen each other. I wish I knew how bad you were struggling. I would've done all I could to help. It hurts because deep down I know you could have been saved. I feel your presence as your trying to guide me down the right path mom. I will continue to do my best and be as strong as you were. I hope there really is a heaven and that I get to see you again. If not then ill see you in dreamland ; )

Hey Sis,

Today was one of the saddest days of my life, next to losing our dear Mother.  12 years ago your daughter called me. After that, it was a blur. I miss you terribly. You will forever be my little-big sister. And yes, now as of your birthday on January 19, you are only one year younger than me! Not so fun when we are older though.  As kids, you loved to tease me about that every year.  So competitive we were!  And very close too. Sisters, in the true sense of the word.

Give Mom a hug and I'm still looking for Mandy, as you asked me to do..... Your eldest son is being quite responsible, adopting his niece, as I did. He's always been family first and very compassionate. Your middle son continues to be smarter than all of us, but alone in his thoughts.  We love and miss him around. Your daughter is you in many ways.....loving, caring, thoughtful, and family centered. But she has her demons, as you did, and we hope she can shake them before they take her. 

She gave us your first grand child, a little tornado named after you!  Lil Val is beautiful, loving, adventurous, sensitive, and always always on the go! Like you as a kid....cautious but daring at the same time.

I wish I could hold you and kiss you one more time.  Our last kiss was so sad. May you rest in peace and know you live on through your kids, granddaughter, and us!

Cindy, your big-little Sis

I cannot believe it has been 10 years Sister since you have passed. You are missed so much I cannot explain. You were my sister, best friend, and confidant. I can only hope that you are hanging with our Mother and finally found your peace. 
You are loved beyond this earth and will forever remain in my heart and soul.
Love,
Your big sis

PS It's Superbowl again today and I remember you every Superbowl...Girls just want to have fun.

Just sitting here missing you...you were one of very few people who really understood people and didn't judge.

We miss your beautiful face which was always so youthful and flawless.

Life goes on without you down here. God is still great, drink is still good but life is crazy without you.

You had a place in our hearts this Christmas, same as everyday. Love you sis

You always had so much love and seemed to smile even when our whole world was crumbling down. You would just say hold on and remind everyone that everything was going to be alright.

We all love you so much.

I miss your beautiful smile and encouraging words. So many times we wanted to cry but would laugh instead because of our stupid choices. You always tried to stay positive even in a negative situation.

Mickey Gilley Night

Shared by C R on February 3, 2018

We didn't go out together very often, us three sisters.  But when we did, it was memorable!


We decided to go out to Mickey Gilleys in Pasadena on beer bust night.  Gilley beer was $1.  But I was a rebel, I ordered Lone Star Beer.  It cost more but I wasn't a sheep following the others.  I don't know what Pam and Val drank.  They followed their own drummer too.   Probably whiskey for Val.  Pam probably didn't drink anything because she had fun without it.


We decided to tell the MC or whatever the guy introducing the bands was called, that us three gals wanted to announce to a certain guy there...that WE were here!  The announcer made a big big deal that there were three pretty women here too see you, do come on up before they're taken!


He was riding the mechanical bull I think.  When he finally got up to the stage, he said, "Awe, it's just my three sisters!"  Wasn't too happy about the let down.  But we were elated!  We had once again messed with our little brother Chris!  So fun!  


Thank you Pam for creating this site for our dear sister Valerie.  May she have peace, finally.  And to her children and granddaughter Valerie, she was a kind and loving soul.  Val put her kids first and foremost, despite her struggles here on earth.  May heaven be a joyride for her.


Love AC/DC

Your being gone has taught me that it doesn't matter where we came from, what car we drove or how educated we are.

What matters is how we feel when you are gone.  What matters more are the memories that live in us who loved you.

Before the Lord Took You

Shared by Pam Richards on December 18, 2011

One day my son brought me a song and asked me to listen to it.  It reminded me of when we were young.  We didn't blame no one but we did grow up empty. We later talked of the people that fed us lies and promised us bright tomorrows because we actually believed them at the time.  They told us we were good at bad things but we were just glad that they were proud of us.   

We saw things we probably shouldn't of seen before we made it to our teens, but I like the way you were, Val, because you didn't care if people didn't like you.  You were always ready to put up a fight and we learned to do the things that we thought were right. 

If one of us would of died the other would've died too.  We went to jail, got sick, we even lost our mom and dad.  We cried. 

We were victims of the devil's lies.  But you never know who's right behind you, I have a son now who wants to do  whatever I do. Then I remembered Momma used to tell us that we were created by God.  At first we wanted to be our own god who's in control of all things. But then I remembered the God our mom had told us about before she died.  She explained how the enemy will fight even harder to bring us from God.  She even left a letter that said the devil is real. We were victims of lucifer's lies and we needed more than what we had to lead us.  We needed more than a teacher to teach us.

Then one day I told you how I cried out to God because I made such a mess of my life. He said He'd erase it, I took it.  I also told you that I screwed my life up so bad and that God said He'd replace it, I took that too.  It was a free gift. 

I told you how it sure wasn't easy at all but I'd rather serve than be served.  My education ain't much but to God I'm qualified for anything. I told you about my new life and you wanted some too.  You asked about it.

Before the Lord took you, we said the prayer and asked for His help.  You accepted Jesus into your heart......I knew you felt the same peace I felt when I did it too.  You would read the bible and say that it is too heavy to hold up at night while you read it.  Then we laughed.
