"Hi is raining and I woke with a heavy heart. I am soarly missing everyone I loved that has passed on. That is when a HAPPY memory can uplift the spirits and here is one I would like to share with you. I was thrilled to be invited to Mike and Polly's place in Sequim...beautiful. I went with Debbie and Andrea. Your whole family was there even sister's Pansy and Twilla. Debbie is so like you in my heart...she sent me your recipes for biscuits (Polly made these for the party, Mike made the clam chowder...YUM) and tapioca which bring back happy memories with you. Your love and goodness lives on in the hearts of your children; you are truly missed."

"Happy Birthday Mom.
I can picture the family gathering we would have had at Wah Kues tonight if you could have stayed with us a little longer. I can see that smile you always got when you had your great-grandchildren around you and they didn't know you were watching them. Having those little ones around you was the only birthday present you ever wanted. Wherever you are at up in Heaven I hope today they are serving fortune cookies and you have little ones at your feet putting that smile on your face. You are missed.
Love, Tim"
