Hi Mom,

Well, we have a little girl in the family now. Her name is Averie Willow and she is precious! We sure have beautiful babies in this family. She was born on May 20th. 6.6 and 19 inches long. Absolutely beautiful! I have had a ball buying pink. Haven't done that in over 16 years. It was time. Everyone is doing good. Lily has been a handful. I keep thinking back to when I was 17...bless you. I know what I put you through. So glad I had loving parents that stood by me. I plan on doing the same. You taught me well. I know I was more of a handful than she was so I am really lucky. Thank you for all you did for me and taught me. I have to say, I have some amazing girls who have chosen the right path to travel down. We all make mistakes, but we learn from them. That is life. Love you mom. Keep watching over all of us and keep singing to the babies. I know they hear you. That is why they smile when they sleep. Until next time...much love....6/17/14

Hi Mom,

Just checked and can't believe I haven't written anything since December. Everyone is doing ok. We are waiting on baby Girl to get here. Love my boys but so ready for a little girl to join the group. Saw Mandi today and bless her, she looks like she is ready to pop. She looks good though. Shae is doing good. Staying busy as always. Lily is doing well. Growing up way to fast. I can't believe she will be 18 in January and Graduating next June. She decided to go to college here for 2 years and Charlotte the other 2. She wants to go into education now. Isn't that something, three teachers. Who would have known....lol. Daddy is doing ok. He got to spend a few days in the hospital, but is doing much better now. Looks like we are going to have another winter to summer and skip spring again. You can really tell the difference in weather from the old days. At least we did see some snow and boy was there snow. I was actually ready to see it leave this time. Mainly I just wanted to say, Happy Mother's Day Mom.....still missing you and am sure I always will. Until next time...much love. 5/11/14

Merry Christmas Mom! Love and miss you. Guess what?? We are going to finally have a girl in the family! Love my boys, but was ready to buy something pink.Everyone is ecstatic. Shae made the cutest tutu and headband for her. Lily got her birth certificate in and cried when we gave it to her. I think it finally hit her that everything was final. She is officially ours, but then again, she always has been, just now, everything is finally official. You would be proud of all our girls. I have to say, I have 3 wonderful girls and 3 great grandsons. cant wait for our newest granddaughter to come into our lives. Please keep a watch on her and sing to her. I had our redeye gravy today for Christmas breakfast. It was good. Poor Shae didn't get to join us. She ended up with a stomach virus for Christmas. Bless her, she is feeling a little better tonight but looked rough earlier when were took their presents over. Didn't stay, just dropped them off. But at least all the kids had a good Christmas. I love you Mom, and again, Merry Christmas!

Hi Mom,

It's November once again, 11 years since you left us. That seems so long ago in years but the feelings feel like yesterday. You are always on my mind but more so this time of year. Mandi told me about her dream. I told her it was you letting her know everything will be ok. Please continue watching over the new little baby we will be having in June. Sing to her/him and let her/him know they will be loved. We should know what s/he will be soon. maybe a she this time?? Either one is fine as long as s/he is healthy. I miss you mom and I will be thinking about you even more Monday, especially at 7:15. I will never forget that call. I use to take that day off but have decided to work. I just wanted to drop in and let you know you are weighing heavily on my mind and heart. I really, really miss you mom. Love eternity...me

HI Mom,

I know, it's been a while. Just wanted to stop by and say hello. I know you were there to meet Uncle Don. I am sure you are showing him all the fishing spots. He will be missed by all. The adoption finally came through!!! Samantha's name is now legally Lily and she is thrilled. I didn't realize all the paperwork we have to change. It is a bunch, but well worth it. Fall has just arrived. We really didn't have much of a summer. Heck, never got really hot enough to warm the pools around here. I'm not complaining though cause you know I don't like hot weather. We had a lot of rain over the summer. You would not have been very happy with the tomatoes around here. I have only had fried tomatoes twice this summer. That is horrible! You know we love our fired green tomatoes. I hope we have some snow. I always loved snow. It is so pretty when it falls and a mess when it melts, but that's ok, much better than just cold rain. Daddy is doing good, still keeping the roads hot. The boys are growing like weeds. You would be so proud of each one of them. They are so precious. The girls are doing good and are great moms, except for Lily and she has a while to go before she become ones. Lets get her graduated, college and Air Force first. I'm waiting to see how many times she changes her mind on what she wants to be. So far it has changed twice and still undecided. I told her what ever she decided, to make sure it is something she will enjoy doing. Anyway, had you on my mind. Sorry I have been slack in writing, but regardless, you are always on my mind and I think of you all the time. Give Don a big hug from me and his girls and tell him to watch over them all as he always has. They are having a rough time and that is understandable, but they know he is with them. Love you bunches Mom and until the next time........
