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

Hi Mom,
so wish you were here lately, well always, but lately it just seems so lonely without you. I seem to want to pick up the phone and call you, to run over to your house and take you to lunch, to come over and go shopping...I miss all those things so much. I have truly realized I need to find a hobby because life seems so boring not doing things with you. I guess it's just girl missing her mother....Love you and miss you always.

Hey Momma,
It's been such a whirlwind month and I think it all seems like a dream when I sit down and think about it. I'm glad you are here to talk to....friends are busy, the boys are too far know it...It seems kind of lonely...Jim is such a Godsend though, he tries so hard to understand my moods when I get nostalgic, not sure that he does, but he tries...that's all I can ask for.
I miss you so much...

Hey Mom,
It's been a really tough few weeks here but I know I have only made it because of you...I'm sure you pushed me through all the rough moments and my crying...I thank you for that.
I know you will be there to see and welcome Kevin when he enters God's arms so that makes me feel a little better...
thanks Mom.

another Mother's day with out you...It would be a time for us to find flowers, go summer shopping, take a trip for our birthday; but instead I think about how I miss you, think about your kindness I miss so much, our long talks, shopping trips, and road trips. Happy Mother's Day to the BEST mom ever, and one that is missed by so very many people.
Love you.
