Dear Mother,
It's been over a year since the Lord took you home, and I still miss you like it was yesterday. I blow a kisses to your picture every day. The family gathered in prayer on Christmas day at your home. I sensed your presence (and Grandma's too). Bob (your loving husband) was such a terrific host. He's been quite the cook & baker. Producing homemade jelly, baking apple pies & sauce, making killer chocolate cookies, and even made a cheesecake for Christmas Day! The beef roast was delicious too.
Mom, your great-grandson came with his Mommy, Rachel to visit. Namaste Gaian Tracy Witt was held by many, including your sister, Susie. She had to cut her visit short as a snow storm had moved in. Aunt Susie made it home safely, thank God. Chad & Beka arrived late afternoon, and by then the snow was really coming down. They also didn't stay long as Chad had to go get his trucks/plows fired up and ready to clear some business parking lots. Also, Beka had to get up @ 5am to return to work by 7am. Denice, Jan, Shawneh & Amannda arrived on Christmas eve and have stayed throughout the weekend. The girls are growing up and are so pretty and talented. Denice was quite ill a few weeks ago with double pneumonia and nearly left us. Reluctantly, she went to the hospital for a couple days. She is doing much better. We are thankful and hope she can kick her smoking habit soon. Neal & Audrey brought Patricia (Rex's sweetheart). She is now in an assisted living home for memory care. Rex passed from a massive heart attack a couple months ago. Tragic but predictable I'm afraid. He was in poor health. Your brother Bob stayed over night at the Chandler Inn Monday before Christmas with his new honey, Patsy (a long time friend). None of us were able to visit either do to illness or just busy. We are happy he has found love again.
Mother, I sang in 4 Christmas concerts in mid-December. But my throat/voice gave out during the Saturday night performance. I had caught a cold/cough right before. Acupuncture and Chinese Herbs helped me get through. Sunday, I did not return to church in the morning, nor did I sing in the 5th performance. I was barking like a dog! All the rest was much needed, and it was a good day to stay home as it snowed most of the day. I was cozy in my Xmas pj's under a blanket, with my tree and fireplace lights one. Eventually I lit a fire. Drank lots of teas, water, and watched Globe Trekker's all day. That took me on some wonderful adventures around the world. Well Mom, just wanted to touch base in a formal way, even though I talk to you constantly. We all miss you very much. I hope you are a happy, free, painless spirit in the presence of Jesus in Heaven! We love you with all our hearts, and hold you there, Mom! Your loving daughter, Pamela Jean.

Dear Mother,
I finally finished putting up the Christmas decorations this weekend! Like you, everything has to be just right. The white lights on the mantle & tree have a twinkle like stars... reminding me where you are. I blow a kiss and wave back to your picture near the tree every day. Miss you so much, Mom.
Recently, I opened one of the many cook books you had given me looking for a recipe: "Fettig's Favorite Foods" - do you remember the one? I randomly opened to a page toward the back in the "Food For Thought" section and know it was no accident. Here is what it says: Title is "MOTHER" A Mother is someone who has that something extra... That extra capacity to give endless warmth and loving care to a tiny baby... That extra imagination to enjoy a tea party of mud pies... to be a doctor to a wounded teddy bear.... To answer questions that have no answer... A Mother always seems to have an extra cookie.... A smile... or a hug... A little extra surprise for special times.... Or just because she knows it will make you happy... A Mother has an extra supply of love... Enough to keep giving and giving... Maybe that's why a Mother is loved in such an extra special way--- This is all so true, especially of you, Mom. Consider this another tribute similar to my own. We will be together in spirit on Christmas day as a family in your home with Bob. It will be a celebration of the birth of Jesus, and your new life with him. I love you, Mom.
