Hey mom, it's me sorry I missed yesterday. I miss you so very much. It doesn't seem like 24 years, more like a few days. I hear your voice, smell your cologne, and hear your laughter. Honestly I thought you touched me last night because I didn't make it to this point yesterday. Like sissy she thinks of you when she sees this little white dove that comes around her place in nice weather. It hangs at her back door. She says its mom!!!!. we love and miss you so very much momma, your birthday is coming up soon. I will be back before then. Hugs always.

Sorry so long momma, busy a whirl wind lately. You know I never forget you ,I just still am not use to this way. I want to Post Merry Christmas and Happy New Year to you this year. Going out of 2018 and into 2019. I am saying prayers that this new year will be better. Not that 2018 was all bad. Learning more about family, we are huge. I found so many new ones. Elaina and the kids are doing very good momma, Todd is great for them. I wish you were here with us so you could even see them and hold them I know that you would have just loved Isabella and Logan so much. Momma she looks like I use to when I was little. Momma you would love Todd, he is so much like us. It is sometimes so hard to get through the days, not having you with me. You were my best friend. As the song says I will always love you. ….I better go for this time and will be back later. Love you so very much momma. Hugs always ..I'm trying to look out for sissy too. Love you mom.. from all of us.

Sorry I missed this on your birthday mom. I took sis with me to see you, she never said much but I know she felt you near us, like I always do. There has been a lot going on. I think of you everyday, not a minute that goes by lately I think of what we use to do, and things we would laugh at and the silly things that we use to do together. Like driving the country side and find wild flowers and then we would take a start from them, having this awesome flower area in our backyard, for Butterflies and hummingbirds. Those were some fun times. I caught myself wanting to do that very same thing this year. Thinking of going to our old homestead and finding the flowers we planted there, the bushes, the mimosa tree. It was so pretty, and the kids loved playing on their swing under it. This is another year we are going to have a good vacation, I'm taking sis with me again to se Ray, and enjoy some time together. Things you never got to do with her, I am trying mom to keep things going, its hard. But I'll continue as long as I can. Love and miss you dearly.. your oldest.. hugs. Hope you had a Very Happy Birthday, up in Heaven, give grandma, grandpa, hugs and my brothers too.

Well mom today marks another day. Just lots of times wish you were still hear to give advice and keep me in the right track. Sometimes I just want to scream out that I miss my mother and I need her. Its just not the same with out you. Yes I move on but it isn't easy when you need to ask mom that one question. Anyway your great granddaughter is a little sports girl. Her momma your precious granddaughter says she is a natural out on the floor, she plays her heart out I know you watch over them everyday, well gramma she is playing tonight, please be with her and sail her across the floor help her with those baskets, give her some hope with this game tonight a reason to win, even if its in her heart to know she gave her all. And swing down and softly touch your great grandson on his cheek letting him know you love him too. Give your little bumpkin a hug too. We are all good momma love and miss you with all our hearts. Cherish my memories always.

Well another year gone by momma, miss you more everyday. I am leaving you a little flower, you know it snowed here today. When I looked out I thought of the angels loosing all their old feathers. The flakes weren't huge but big enough. I wish some days that you were still here, I know you are in Spirit, but not soul. I want to say that all is well, we are doing good. Your granddaughters and great grandchildren are doing well. As is Sis too. I have been keeping an eye on things for you. The Special things that mean the most. Before long the flowers will be growing and blooming so beautifully. I am hoping that your favorite rose will bloom more this year. Well I better sign off here to post this I want to say ,thanks for being with Dan everyday in that truck, and guiding him home safe each time. He misses you too mom. Love you then and still do, for ever and always your Oldest daughter... My memories of you are still strong in my heart. 22 years today we lost you.

Hey there momma, missing you very much. More and more everyday. Sometimes wish you were here to give me that look, and get me on the right path. Sure could use that lately. All good, granddaughter doing well, her children your great granddaughter and grandson are growing like weeds. They would make you very proud. And your step granddaughter is a teacher also momma, she has three of those little guys. They all would make you proud also. The little girl is my SPECIAL girl. She was born on your birthday momma, she is so honory. You would have spoiled them all. Dan is such a blessing in my life, also. You knew he would be. This is really to tell you Happy Birthday coming up on the Fifth. I want you to have a good one up there with grandma and grandpa. I bet you are hunting with him... and learning more things. Love always and forever your Oldest daughter... miss and cherish memories forever.

Momma, tomorrow is another mark, of the day we lost you. My mind goes in circles because I am getting older and wonder, how will I ever get over loosing my mom. I will never get over it, nor will it , in my case get easier. I miss you more everyday. I lost my number one best friend, the one person that would related back to me and I knew that I would do the right thing then. I have been struggling with something so much, 2 things mainly. One I will get through and move on, a test. the other I don't think I ever will be able to except and move on. I need your thoughts mom., let me know if I need to harden my heart and forget this matter or just laugh it off as a thing I can't ever change in my life. I know that I will do the right thing with your strength in me as I have done before. I need that extra push this time. Your grand daughter is grown into a beautiful young women, having her ups and downs, but you would be proud of her grandma. Her two are growing into beautiful young ones. They are going through alot right now, if only you could be here to give them all three hugs. SIs is doing ok mom, I try to keep her above float. Her body too is like ours going to ....., we are fine though cause we got your blood and strenght running through us. Sending all my love, til I see you so we can talk again. hugs momma ., Dan keeps me strong. Always your daughter.

Mom, so sorry that I am late wishing you a Happy Birthday. I wasn't able to get to the computer to post it. But I wished you a great day. Ataiva , your great grand daughter was born on this special day, she turned 7 . She is tickled she carrys her great grandmothers birthday also. And Tricia calls her , her little Sunshine. Miss you always mom, not a day goes by that I wish you were still here with us. And to guide me when I get lost. Love forever .

Mom this is to say that there is never a day that goes by, that I don't think of you in some way. Nor a day goes by that I don't miss you so very much. I am blessed to have had such a great mother as you. I still have you in my heart and soul. I may not have you in body, but you are with me always. I am this age myself, getting close to another year. Often wonder what we would be doing if you were here. You would be spoiling the 5 grandchildren, for one thing. I lost my very best friend the day I lost you. I feel bad that I wasn't by your side to comfort you. But you went the way you always wanted to, wanted to, alone. So we none had to see you go through leaving us all alone. Your in our hearts forever, and I know that everyday you and our sweet brothers are looking down on us. We all love you so very much. Remembering you mom with all my love.

Mom it has been a while since we lost you. I feel it was yesterday, the memory and hurt is still there like never before. We loved you so very much and didn't want you to go, but you are better now no more pain or hurt. We all have grown more now and see the real truth of life and it still is hard when we need your advise and you are not there to give it, but we go on, like you would want us to. Still strong in family love..... I will cherish my memories of you momma always. Warm hugs.
