Day 240 of 365
God is saying to you today, "In the gentle breeze that touches your face and the rustling leaves that dance to nature's rhythm, hear My whispers. These are My messages to you, subtle reminders that I am always close, always wrapping you in words of love, guidance, and assurance. As days rush by and nights grow quiet, pause and listen. Amidst life's clamor, My still, soft voice remains, affirming your cherished place in My heart
and guiding you on this blessed journey."

My first grandson who always took care of me n his papa and who loved us unconditionally. He had a heart that was made of gold as he always wanted to help everyone. He loved spending time with family n making us laugh with silly jokes or just anything. Our hearts will always have a piece missing because we can't physically see or hug him but I know that he always walks along side of us n takes care of us. Mojo I will always love you n I carry you in my heart ❤️. Love Nana n Papa.

Hello my wonderful n loving grandson. As you well know we miss you with all our hearts and wish you were here with us. To this day I always look around whenever I go shopping waiting for you to jump out from the clothes hanging next to me to scare me like you used to. Although you have been gone physically from us for 12 years you are always alive in my heart and mind and I like the warm feeling that I get from knowing that you still take care of me. By the way your Xena girl passed away last night and I know that she will be with you sooner than you think, just make sure that you give her a daily treat ok cause she loves them. I miss her already but I know that you 2 will have one heck of a time together. I loved you then, now and forever, your Nana who misses you very, very much.

Not a day goes by that I don't miss you! Always a great time together wether we were going for a cruise or drinking our "monsters". You are my bestie & that'll never change! Last year I got a random post on FB from a lady who moved into my old house in flag. She found all your pictures & our memories. Thank you for leading them back to me!

Papa n Nana's boy Vincent who was and still is a big part of our hearts. Mijo we always think about you in one way or another whether it's a picture, a memory, or something that you would say. We thank the Lord for all the memories we have to recall of you and the things we did together. Our hearts will always have a special place for you cause you were our first grandson n because you took care of us. Our lives have gone on and we always hear or see something that lets us know that you are always with me n papa taking care of us as you used to. Mijo when I go shopping I think of the time you scared me when I was looing at some dresses n you jumped out from between them n scared the heck out of me. Mijo please know that we loved you then n we love you now n forever. Love Nana n Papa

32 today.... Dad and I talk of the what if’s . If you were here with us today you would have a beautiful family with at least 5 children ( you LOVED babies so much). We would have the traditional Family weekends filled with PRICELESS MEMORIES, I can just imagine you helping your Daddy-O at the grill and us laughing until we cried.
Unfortunately all we can do is imagine and know that we will have our laughs and ginormous hugs when we get to Heaven
I LOVE YOU FOREVER I LOVE YOU FOR ALWAYS

Hey there my Chump, missing you more than ever.. i often catch myself wondering what you would be doing in life. I lost a part of me when God called on you to be by his side,so I like to think that part of me is already in Heaven.. i miss your goofiness and your unconditional love and the way you made me feel ,knowing how much you liked being around me.. i will always think about you and never forget how special you are to everyone who loves and misses you.. love your Tio Chump

My Vincent Michael 11 years ago this evening you met our great Lord... I still don’t know why he called you home when your life was just beginning. What I do know is that everything that happens is Gods plan, I know he had a little blessing for you here on earth, and when you entered Heaven you received the true love and happiness that you so sought after while you were on earth. So with that knowledge and the love and support from Daddy-o, sisters, peanut, family and friends I am able to keep the remaining half of my heart beating.
Until it is time for our huge bear hug again I will look up to the heavens and feel your warm smile from the sunshine and your gentle hug in the breeze.
Fly high my Hummingbird
Forever and always you will be my baby

Hi my mijo, I couldn't or can't sleep and thought I would get you up to date on mine and grandpa's comings and goings....well and you know we bought a house here in Chandler to be closer to your mom, dad, Geo, Josi, Marlene (Gabi your niece) n Marissa (Elijah your nephew) and and to spend quality time with them, although we have a good time we all still miss you because our family circle us not complete without you my big boy. Time goes by but there is always that empty feeling cause you are not here. I wonder who you would have married and how many great-grand children you would have blessed us with (only the Lord would know) and we know you would have been a great dad. Mijo your pap and I love you more than words can ever say. I know your Chump misses you like crazy and I know you 2 would be living together and having a great time. You brother Gio is growing up to be such a wonderful young man and good son and your jelly bean is getting tall and very pretty, Marlene and Marissa are both mothers but I know you already knew that. Mijo life goes on for all of us but it is not complete without you, we love you with all our hearts, I am sending up a big hubba-bubba hug to you until we meet again, love nana.

Another year of missing you my dear hubba-bubba, the years go by and I always wonder how many great-grand children you would have given me and grandpa and what you would be working as. Mijo I know that you are always with papa and me cause I feel you or I see something that reminds me of you. You are my constant companion now and forever my loving grandson Vincent, love nana.

I know you are in HEAVEN with your little mamas and she is happy to have you. 
I will look up to the blue skies and send my love on a hummingbirds wings.

Hi mijo this is nana sending you all my love and to tell you that I miss you with all my heart and your papa feels the same. It is not right for time to go by and you are not physically with us. The holidays and your birthday are always the hardest. As you know we are back in Arizona so we could be closer to your mom, dad, sisters and brother, although we get together and have a nice time there is always that time when I look around and say to myself where is mijo and realize that you are there with us in spirit. I miss my big boy who used to take care of me and the wrestling matches we had. Please continue to watch over us and protecting us. Love nana and papa.

My amazing grandson that always took care of me and his papa, so hard to stil accept that fact that you are in heaven watching over all of us. You know mijo whenever I am shopping I always expect to see you jump out between the clothes and scare the life out of me, if only you could do that again. I know that you are always with us cause I feel your presence always no matter where I'm at. Papa n I miss you with all our hearts, Happy Birthday my loving grandson and please continue to watch over all of us until we see each other again, love nana and papa, Xena n tinker
