Hello Son, Well we got through Thanksgiving even though I didn't think I would even be able to cook the meal. We only cooked a 12 lb. turkey but had stuffing, two kinds of potatoes, gravy, corn, cranberries, olives, rolls, pumpkin pie and caramel apple nut pie that Chance sold me from school. Sure missed you with the cooking. Your Dad helped me in kitchen with lifting and getting things down that I couldn't reach. Missed you again. It was just your Dad, Chance and I for most of the day. Missed you again. Danette, Robert and Greyden came in the evening for leftovers. Brett and Linda called before the Bronco game. You know Brett. Wanted to get the call out of the way before kickoff. Missed you again. Am surprised he didn't call back since they won. Missed you again. I did feel your presence many times during the day though. Just wish I could see you and hug you. Chance and I will keep writing to you. Gotta go for now. Robert just came to get Greyden who spent the night with Chance. I love you and miss you. TTYL, Mom

Hi Son, Well, the New Year rang in last night and I miss you more than ever. Christmas came and went. Don't really have much more to say about it than that. We had Chance's birthday party at the Truck Stop so the boys could play video games for awhile. That was kind of silly when I think about it because we have much better games to play at home. Chance wore his "My Dad's the man" shirt. Guess that was his way of having you there with him. Had Trey come as a surprise and that pleased him. They all three (he, Trey and Greyden) dove in to the huge strawberry shortcake they brought to Chance for birthday cake with a candle and a song. They didn't realize I had taken a cake for us to eat and had it taken back to the kitchen from the front register so we brought it home and had it later. Mindy stopped by the bank Christmas Eve day to say Hi and see how I was doing. We shared a good cry. She is going to come help me with a project I had intended to get done before Christmas for your memoriy. Probably a good thing I didn't get it done. I'm sure it will turn out much better with her expert help. Well, I had better sign off for now and get some black eyed peas ready to eat. Remember how much you "LOVED" those. Oh, well! It is for a good cause. I love you and miss you so much. TTYL, Mom

Hello Love, Here it is the day before Valentine's Day already. Your son wants to have a Valentines Dinner tonite. We went shopping but he was having a lot of trouble agreeing on a menu. I don't think he realizes that the main ingredient that he is looking for won't be here. Not physically anyway. I know that you will be here in spirit. He and Greyden are out back. It is about time to call them in and let them decorate the table. The meal will be nowhere close to what it was last year with you here to help cook it and the occassion will not be filled with the usual joy, but we must go on. We do this tonite in honor of your memory and please know how much we love you, miss you and wish you could be here with us. Love, Mom

Happy Birthday Dax. Spent the day here at home remembering the day you were born and many of the memories we made together over the years. I still can't believe you are gone. That was an awfully short life. Guess that is why you crammed so much into it while you were here. Chance came by after school and we went shopping for things to decorate with. It has been a nasty few days, so we are probably going to go down in a day or two when the snow is melted (hopefully) and set them out for you. He chose very carefully. He had certain colors in mind and how he wants them to be arranged. He is so artistic that I'm sure it will be beautiful and you should be pleased. I have a crop about ready in Farmville and then I'm going to get ready for bed. I know you would and could identify with that. You loved those games and were incredibly good at them. Tomorrow is another early day as it is back to work for me. Anyway, we love you and miss you very much and wanted you to know we were thinking of you. Your Aunt Kay and Aunt Joyce both called to offer thoughts and prayers on this special once happy, now sad day. You have a lot of love and prayers surrounding you. Well son, I will say bye for now and I'll be thinking of you. TTYL, Mom

Hello Son, Today is Mother's Day and I am having a really tough time with it. I was filled with such dread yesterday I didn't even know if I could get up today. Well, I'm up and here I am, talking to you just like I want to be, but without you talking back. Chance made me the sweetest Mother's Day card. It has a big red heart on it and on the heart is a big "I" and "U". Then he wrote and I quote. "Dear Gma, I know it is Mother's day but I thought you shouldn't be left out. Love, Chance Riley Ham. Thank you so much for him. I thank both you and God for him for without him, I truly don't know how I would go on sometimes. Well, I wanted you to know how I was feeling and as you well know sometimes the only way I can do that is in verse so I wrote you something. Here goes: To my Dax on Mother's Day There is a place inside my heart that holds ten million tears; But on this day they feel more like ten million tiny spears. Each day a few make their escape and trickle down my face. They try to wash away my pain and free a little space. Thank goodness God knows carpentry, perhaps he can repair; This broken place I call my heart since you will live on there. For even though I know I should, I've tried with all my might; I simply cannot say "Good bye" so I'll just say "Goodnight". I hope the spelling is correct and everythikng because there is a tiny bit more space in that heart right now. Loving you and missing you more, not less, every single day. Send me a song. TTYL, Mom
