HAPPY BIRTHDAY MOMMA! I will celebrate you today and miss you every second. Can't begin to explain the pain/void in my heart. It NEVER lessens. I LOVE YOU SO MUCH!!
Sunday, May 14, 2017
Oh my Sweet Momma... Happy Mothers Day. Such a bittersweet day as I am so grateful for you and to you but, I am so heartbroken that I can't see your beautiful smile and give and receive the best hug ever. To say you are missed is such an understatement. Words cannot convey the Love I have for you or the pain I have without you here. I do feel your presence when I need it most and that is always comforting. And having your Sweetheart with me dally is a Tremendous comfort and reminder of you. Pop is truly one of the most precious people on earth. I will thank God for the gift of YOU tonight in my prayers and to you my Sweet, Beautiful and Loving Momma...know that you are Loved more and more with every passing second. Forever in my heart, Forever part of my soul , Forever my Precious Momma. I LOVE YOU FOREVER AND BEYOND

4 years ago today, my life changed forever. I feel like I have been living with only half of my heart. I believe the other half went with you. I know how blessed I am to have you and Pop as my parents and I know how Loved I was/am. If every person on this planet was loved just a fraction of how much you loved me, this world would be more peaceful, more kind and more beautiful! Momma, Thank You for making my world beautiful! I Miss You so much. Time does not heal, it simply passes. There are certain wounds that never heal, my heart is proof of that. I LOVE YOU!❤

HAPPY ANNIVERSARY MOMMA! Today is yours and Pops 66th wedding anniversary. Sure wish you were here. Pop misses you so very much and now that his beloved Mija has joined you, he is beyond broken hearted. In spite of his heavy heart, he is doing well and is still the most wonderful man I have ever known. How blessed I am that you and he found each other and began your lives together 66 years ago. I MISS YOU MOMMA and I LOVE YOU and appreciate you more and more everyday.

Merry Christmas Momma. Your presence is felt and your hugs are missed. My Christmas memories from childhood bring a smile to my face. So many wonderful Christmas mornings. Thank you so much for always doing your best to make our Holidays so special. Your magic touch is definately missing but, I still try. I will head to the cemetery shortly and sit and play your favorite Christmas songs. It is my tradition for the last 3 yrs. and it brings me comfort. I miss you Momma. I hold onto the memories tightly and Thank the good Lord for giving me to you and Pop. I Love You .

The holidays are here again, My heart is still broken and you are still missed every second of every day. Pop is doing well. He just had a visit from your best friend/ '"sister", Joyce Thompson. She was in Calif. and made sure she saw your sweetheart. I miss you so much Momma!! I LOVE YOU!!

HAPPY BIRTHDAY MY SWEET MOMMA. Saw so many butterflies today. I know you were with Pop and I as we visited you and changed your flowers. You are missed by so many. I received at least 8 messages today from your "other kids", telling me they were thinking of you on your Birthday. You touched so many lives. There is still such a void and Pop says daily " Sure do miss your Momma". You are forever in our hearts. I LOVE YOU SO MUCH!
Monday, May 09, 2016
Mother's Day is no longer a happy occasion. I think of you, thank God for making you my Momma, then I stay as busy as I can...so I don't have to think about you not being here! I Love You and Miss You beyond explanation.
Monday, May 02, 2016
Always miss you so much on my Birthday! I LOVE YOU AND MISS YOU MOMMA!

HAPPY EASTER MOMMA! I Love You and Miss You so very much!
Sunday, January 24, 2016
3 years have passed and yet the heartache still seems so fresh. Time really has no meaning, as My heart is frozen in the moment that it was broken. I find comfort in being with and taking care of Pop, as I carry out your request to "Take care of my Sweetheart". A promise I would have made and kept even without you asking. I know you are happy and smiling upon us all. I know during my darkest and challenging days that you are with me, holding me tightly, reassuring me that the sun will shine again. So many wonderful memories to make me smile. Thank you for making my life so blessed! Thank you for being the BEST MOM EVER! Thank you for being such a perfect example of a beautiful human. Most of all Mom, Thank you for your unconditional, unwavering, Love and support. I will always do my best to make you proud. I LOVE YOU AND MISS YOU every second of every day!

Here we go again...holiday season. So very hard without my Momma! I will do my best to make a wonderful Thanksgiving dinner for Pop. Nothing can compare to Momma's cooking. I miss watching the Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade with you Mom. So many great holiday memories. I cherish them all and will remember them fondly today...maybe it will help me smile. I MISS YOU! I LOVE YOU SO MUCH!

Happy 82nd Birthday my sweet Momma!! It goes without saying that I wish so badly that you were here. I wish we were going out to dinner to celebrate. Instead, I will rely on the many wonderful memories of your previous birthdays. I miss you and love you so much. Not a day goes by that I don't think of you. Tears still fall and my heart is still broken. It feels as if a piece of me is missing. I Love You Mom...Happy Birthday!
Sunday, May 10, 2015
HAPPY MOTHERS DAY MOMMA!! You are thought of on a daily basis but, days like today you are in my thoughts constantly. Your picture should be in the dictionary next to the word 'Mother'. You are the true definition. I'm still learning from you and imagine I will for the rest of my life. I will give Pop a giant hug and a smooch for you! I Miss You and Love You so very much!
Friday, May 01, 2015
Birthdays are not the same without you. No homemade strawberry shortcake, no happy birthday song with your sweet voice and no big birthday hug from your comforting arms. I miss you beyond explanation. How lucky I am to be your daughter. Thank you for ALWAYS making my birthdays special. I love you Momma!
Saturday, January 24, 2015
Two years have passed since the worst day of my life, Yet it feels like time is standing still. Not a day goes by that you are'nt in my thoughts. I miss you so much! You were the glue that held everything together. It is such a struggle to keep it together without you. I hold all the memories close to my heart and cherish the time we had together. I am still amazed at how fortunate I am to have been chosen to be your daughter. God did such a wonderful thing bringing us together. I still wish I could find my birth Mother. I truly need to thank her for doing the most unselfish act when she put me up for adoption. I need to thank her for making it possible for me to have the most amazing Mother a child could hope for. You were my biggest fan, my fiercest protector, my strongest ally, my mentor...MY MOM. I am so grateful to God, to her and to MY AMAZING MOM. I miss you more than I can possibly express and I love you more everyday.

Merry Christmas! My second Christmas without you. I keep waiting for it to be easier but, I don't think it ever will. I miss your smile, your laughter and the sparkle in your eye at Christmas time. I remember helping you make cookies and rolls. So many precious and priceless memories! Thank you for ALWAYS making Christmas so special. I miss you Momma...I Love You so very much!
Sunday, August 17, 2014
You are missed so very much! With every butterfly I see, I know you are watching over me. I still have days when it just hits me that you are'nt here. It feels so new and still so unbelievable. Pop is 84 today. I cherish my time with him. Such a wonderful man your sweetheart is. I love you Momma. I've been so blessed...Thank you!
Friday, June 06, 2014
Happy Birthday Mom! Miss you so very much!

Happy Mother's Day Momma! I'd give anything to be having lunch with you. You are missed and loved today and EVERY day!! I love you!
Thursday, May 01, 2014
"I miss you" does not begin to explain the void that I feel without you here Momma! Think of you every single day. Life is so different since you've been gone. I'm with Pop everyday and he misses you so much. We talk about you often and are so very grateful that we were blessed to have you! We are taking care of your sweetheart...don't worry. I love you Momma.
Friday, January 24, 2014
Mom, one year ago today, many hearts were broken and many tears were shed when we had to let you go. January 24, 2013 changed our family forever. It still feels so new. Time has done nothing to ease the pain, hearts are still broken and tears still fall. Your physical absence is felt everyday as you have been, are and ALWAYS will be loved, remembered and missed. Till we meet again...
I love you and miss you beyond words.

I reached for the phone this morning to call Mom and wish her and Pop a happy 63rd wedding anniversary. Took me a few seconds for the painful reality to set in. So, I quickly remembered Pop in the next room and went in and gave him a huge hug, kiss on the cheek and a heartfelt "good morning Pop, I LOVE YOU!". I can only imagine the pain he feels today (and everyday) but, the beautiful memories of their life together will surely bring some smiles. We (his children) will keep him busy today and embrace him with love. We are blessed...thank you Momma! All my love now and always...Happy Anniversary!

Merry Christmas Momma!! I cherish the many wonderful Christmases spent with Mom. Her presence is missed (everyday). Christmas will never be the same, I can only hope it gets easier? I love you forever and beyond!!
Sunday, November 24, 2013
Momma left us 10 months ago today. Think about her every single day! Took Pop to the cemetary today, left flowers and many tears. Pop is the most amazing man and father! How blessed are my brothers and I. The holidays are fast approaching. Will never be the same without her. She loved the holidays! I will miss my christmas stocking from "santa". I should have payed closer attention to her when she baked. Her wonderful homemade pies and rolls will be missed! I still can't believe she's not here! I miss you so much mom...I love you forever and beyond!!
Friday, September 27, 2013
I think of Grandpa Ernie often and it makes me sad to know how much he must be hurting. He is the kindest person I have ever known. They loved each other deeply and have shared many, many wonderful memories together. I hope those memories comfort him because memories last forever.
Sunday, August 18, 2013
Pop's 83rd birthday today (8-17). So strange not to see mom there. I know she was there watching over all of us and holding us tight. What a beautiful human she chose as her husband. Such an amazing couple they were/are. Pop misses her so much, it breaks my heart! I am so fortunate and so grateful to have witnessed such a true love. I witness it still every time pop talks about mom. The pain of her absence has'nt diminished and I don't really expect it to. I miss her every minute of every single day but, especially on special days like today. I love you momma and I thank you for blessing us with such a wonderful father! You picked a winner!!

Dear Judy,

I was sorry to hear about your mom. I have fond memories of times spent on the softball field and camping with your parents. They were always so kind to me. My husband and I were in Morro Bay last weekend and thought of the time we stayed at the Baywood Park. What great childhood memories! I would love to talk with you some time. I have searched for you on facebook many times. Last year we thought of you again at the reunion. I would love to see you.
Thursday, June 06, 2013
Mom would have been 80 years old today...Happy Birthday Momma!! I remember her 75th birthday party...surrounded by loving family and friends. She was always so happy when her family and friends were with her. I still can't believe she's not here!! So many times I've needed that hug, the one that could make anything better, the one that her arms were made for! I am so blessed to have been chosen by her (and God) to be her "baby girl"! Pop is so strong and comforting. He loves and misses mom so very much! What a beautiful example of a "true" love story! My brothers and I are so fortunate to witness and benefit from such unconditional and genuine love!! I see it in my Pop still! Tears still fall daily and, I don't think that will ever stop. I have no clue how to heal my broken heart. I hold the memories and love so tightly!! Today, I will celebrate mom's birthday. Today, I will celebrate how blessed I am to have her love with me always. Today, I will miss my Momma more than I can ever explain!! Today, I thank you God for bringing this beautiful and amazing woman into this world and blessing me with her love! I LOVE YOU MOMMA...forever and beyond!!

Happy Mother's Day! You were missed today (and everyday)...I love you momma!!
Wednesday, May 01, 2013
Today is the first birthday in 49 years that my momma did'nt sing happy birthday to me. Such a void that will never be filled. One in a million...that's my momma!! My life is blessed to have had her for nearly 49 years and, I hold all the memories and love deep in my heart. I miss my momma so very much!!!
Thursday, April 25, 2013
Three months ago today since my precious momma went home to heaven. So many wonderful memories from such a beautiful person. I've heard the pain decreases in time. So far time heals nothing...my heart is still broken into a million pieces. Going through so many years of family pictures, every one that she is in has that sweet, genuine & contagious smile. What a beautiful life she lived. To say mom is missed is such an understatement! My world will never be the same. How could it be with such a huge part of me missing. You are in my heart always, I love you momma...forever and beyond!
Monday, April 01, 2013
Today is Easter. I remember and will miss the 48 years of Easter baskets filled with love that I received from my momma! The disbelief is still present and so are the tears. I see butterflies daily and know mom is with me. What a truly special woman...I love you and miss you more than I can possibly express!
Sunday, February 24, 2013
A month has passed. I miss my beautiful momma more than I can express!! I miss her beautiful smile, her loving hugs and kisses and most of all her sweet "I love you"s!! I know I will never be the same without her but, I am a better person because of her!! I miss the impromptu phone calls when one of us saw or heard something that reminded us of each other. I think my heart will always be broken from losing such a truly amazing mother and friend!! I love you mom! You are in my thoughts, my heart and my soul every second of everyday!
Thursday, February 07, 2013
Two weeks today since God took you home, the most painful event I have ever known.
Your service was beautiful momma! So many people sharing so much love. I know how proud you were, watching pop, David and Mike being so strong. Not a day has gone by that I don't shed tears...I miss you so much!! I will never be the same!! How blessed I am to have you watching over me! I promise I will take care of pop, your "sweetheart"! He is so precious and he loves you so deeply! Our family and friends have been amazing. What a testament to what a beautiful person you were! My heart is broken momma but, I know your loving arms are always holding me! You are and have ALWAYS been my angel!! I love you, forever and beyond!

I was devastated when I got Judy's call to come be with my "Other Mother" I came right away and it was awesome to be by her side, swap stories and listen to her quick sense of humor. She, Pop ;[Mr Alesso (I could and never would be able to call you Ernie)] were always there for me. When I think of Mom, I see a smile...oh that sweet and wonderful smile....she will and always will be in my heart. So many stories...the people who were fortunate enough to know her will miss her tremendously! I just hope that someday I will be able to touch as many lives as her did! I'm VERY sorry for your loss; Mr Alesso (Pop), Judy, David and Mike....
Thursday, January 31, 2013
Where do I begin to explain the tremendous loss to my family and the world! If I live to be half the beautiful, compassionate, generous and kind woman that my precious mother was...myself and the people I know and meet will be truly blessed! Mom had an infectious smile like no other. The kind of smile that would shed light on even the darkest of days! A hug from mom was so much more than just a hug. It was a refuge, a safe haven a place you never wanted to leave! I thank the good lord daily for blessing me with the truest example of what a mother should be. Actually, mom exceeded the largest of expectations. Thank you God for choosing mom for me and me for mom. And, thank you mom for insisting that you have a baby girl to go along with your two sons. I love you forever and beyond!!

I have been so blessed to have known and loved Fay for 46 of my 49 years. If there ever was such a thing as a "second mom" she was mine. I will never forget this dear woman as long as I live. Ernie, you were always by her side and cared for me just as she did. David and Michael my two "big brothers," thank you for treating me like a spoiled little sister. And last but not least...One of the best daughters I have ever known, Judy always my sister. I am so sorry for your loss. You are an amazing family and you all have touched so many lives, especially mine.
Wednesday, January 30, 2013
Judy, I didn't know your Momma but I do know what it's like to lose a Mother. Just wanted to send my heartfelt sorrow and compassion to you and your family. I pray you find comfort from the love of family and friends, at this difficult time.
Wednesday, January 30, 2013
I will remember Fay most for her great smile and unfailing love. When people came to visit, she did not dwell on herself, but would always ask about them and their families. Always gracious. Always joking, and the stories.... loved the stories. Feel so blessed to have known her. So very sorry for your loss Ernie, David, Michael and Judy.
Tuesday, January 29, 2013
Ernie & family, I'm so sorry for your loss. My dad, Boyce Combs, worked with you. I do remember Faye. May God be with you at this time.
Tuesday, January 29, 2013
Dear Ernie David Mike and Judy, I was so sorry to read of Fayes passing, I couldnt begin to name the countless hugs and I love yous' that she gave us kids. I would like to believe that she and mom are up in heaven swingin their legs off a cloud and chatting away. So many hugs and loves going out to you at this time, may Gods loving arms surround you and keep you safe and give you the strength to get thru these days ahead. With much love, Florance Heather (Davis) Griffis Pflugerville TX

Our deepest sympathy to your family.

I will always remember what a great smile Mrs. Reynolds had on her face when she worked with my cub scouts back in the 70's. She would always greet me with a big smile and the biggest hugs I had ever had. Have not seen her in over 40 years, but can still see her smile, and hear her laugh.

Many years ago when I was a Girl Scout. I needed the cooking badge. Sorry Mom in advance,she thought I might make a mess. I was staying the night at my Aunt Fays. next day we were talking as she always made time for us. I said to her that I needed to bake a cake to complet the badge.She asked me if I knew how to read? Yes I replied. Alright then.get the cook book out and make your cake. I did, I do not recall how tasty it was but I made that cake. I thank the Lord for blessing me with a fun loving family. Until we meet again.
