Merry Christmas mom. Seems so weird without you. Normally you and I would have been shopping, having lunch, wrapping presents. I would be at your house early this afternoon and we would chat, cook, and just have fun. Then everyone else would arrive and you would be so proud of every gift you put so much thought and time into, even down to the present you ALWAYS had on each of our plates. Then of course our traditional "poppers" before we ate and our "crowns" we all wore at dinner. I am so very grateful for all those memories mother!! I know many people that have lived a lifetime without memories that I have received in the short time you and dad were here.
love you so much, merry Christmas and please kiss my dad, auntie Marlene, Uncle Gordy, grandma's, grandpa's, and for sure Laura!! So many more as well but I don't want you spending all day kissing people...haha
love you forever, and miss you more.

Hi Mom,
Please help me get through this holiday. I am not sure why it seems even harder this year than the last four but it does for some reason. I know I will get through it, and I know it will be because you taught me to try your best at whatever it is you must do...did that make sense? ha See, there you go, you made me laugh and I wasn't even in the laughing mood.
I can't believe it's been almost five years that I have held your hand, smelled your perfume, kissed your face, and talked with you. It seems like a life time ago so many times, and then it seems like yesterday. If I could have just one wish ever it would be to have one more day with you.....(just like the song)
I love you mom!!

Hey Mom,
It's been a while since I wrote here..Been a little busy, keeps me out of trouble. Went on a couple of trips and they were really nice. It was nice to get away with friends and then with Jim but I am going to always miss my trips with you.
I love you mom and miss you ever so much.

Hey Momma,
Not even sure what to say...sad, sad, sad, days coming, and going. I was at your house yesterday, getting the rest of the things out since Greg sold the house. It's so bittersweet. I miss you being there so much but I know Greg and Benjamin do as well and it's best for them to move on. and of course it's not the house we were brought up in so it's not as's just hard to think that the house isn't going to have anything of ours in it anymore, no more memories, no more you, no more brother, nephew, etc. I know this is probably a good thing in the long run, but like I say, it's still hard. There is a part of me that wants to wrap up everything in that house and keep it because it's yours but then I know I can't do that. The memories will ALWAYS be there and those are just objects...I do know this, but for some reason it's still hard.
Mom, please help Greg get through all this, it's really hard for him I think and his legs hurt so bad...I know you can help, you ALWAYS have....
love you momma!!

Hey Mom,
Well Greg did it, he sold the house. It was the last thing of yours that I could look at and have such great memories, and that's it, the memories will ALWAYS be there even if he doesn't own the house anymore. I think it was hard for him to be there, without you, and for Benjamin as well. I think it was lonely knowing that your space was empty so I'm glad that he sold it and will be moving on and making more memories in the new house and of course always bringing the old memories with us.
It's going to be hard to move the last of the stuff out of your house, for some reason it seemed if your stuff was still there it was like you were there in some way....
I miss you ever so much mom.
I love you forever and a day.

Hi Mom,
It's been such a fast and furious summer...I wish you were here so much to take a trip with me, to talk to, and to just enjoy the flowers...I need to take more time to do those things. Since you have been gone I really don't do all of that much, I guess keeping busy keeps my mind off of things I don't want to think about.
Many weddings coming up, and a couple of trips and oh how I wish you were there with us. I will be seeing auntie Karen and I know how the two of you loved to "party" it up...She misses you too, and it's so nice to always hear her talk so highly of you..Loss is just a terrible thing to deal with and I guess I am a little more lost in the transition than know I have a hard time with change, moving forward, etc....I'm doing my best though mom, I really am...
I love you so much.

Hey Mama,
just been thinking of you so much again. I almost picked up the phone to call you last week. It happens a lot but that day it was to the point that I really did pick it up. It is just so strange not to talk to you, to hear your voice, your opinions, and to tell you news about what's going on and hear the excitement in your voice. I treasure those days of talking, of traveling, of just spending time with you. I try to tell so many people that they HAVE to spend as much time with their mother or loved ones as possible because when that time is gone it's so VERY hard.
love you mom!!

Anna is a fantastic daughter of yours, she's learned things aren't easy to cope with when a person leaves us. I am proud of her and I know you are also. Rip Joan.. Anna I love you
