Hello John, I still have your number in my flip cell phone. Yes, I know. I need to upgrade my cell phone. LOL.
Still miss you dearly even more today that I can't hear your voice. But I can feel your spirit watching over me. Continue to Rest my Friend.

John, I don't know how to explain how much I miss you. It still hurts as much today as it did almost three years ago. The one thing that does help me is that I now know that you will never feel pain again and that you are now our Guardian Angel watching over us all. Until we are all together again, I love you, Mom

Dear Dad,

I don't know if you will get this message or not, or where you are even. But if the forces of life allow you to receive this message then here goes. I think about you a lot still. I think of how you are still alive, through me, through Graison, and through all of your loved ones, you live. A lot of the time I look at myself in the mirror and see you. The way I perceive situations at times reminds me of you. It is in these little things that tell me your life goes on through what I do. It makes me want to work even harder so that I can make your genes proud.

I do want to apologize because at first I felt guilt for missing your funeral, and your memorial, I made excuses but I knew I just didn't want to accept it, or see you there without breath. I didn't want to accept it and it was selfish of me, but as time went on I have realized it was the best thing I could do. I didn't want to accept it right there and then, when it did happen I was shocked. Almost two years later and now I can accept the fact that you are gone. Sometimes I wish you were here, so that I could have a father to talk to. Though I know you are somewhere, still alive in a new way. And though it may not be here, and I may not get to speak to you or see you, I remember that I am still a piece of you. And that, though perhaps saddening, is pretty cool. I hope you are enjoying the time and space of where ever exactly it is that you reside at this moment. I just wish you peace. And I urge to show you gratitude for all you did for me while you had life on this planet. Love you always. -Krissy

My dear friend, John. I only knew you for a short while as your Supervisor in the Military. I was getting to know you more once we both got out and started a great relationship calling each other and just talking about life in general. Miss you dearly, John. I know you are in Heaven looking down on your Family and True Friends, awaiting on us to arrive to welcome us in. I still have your number in my cell phone. SFC(Retired), U.S. Army

It seems as though it were only yesterday that God brought you home to live with Him even though it has been 18 months. They say that time heals. I am learning that all it does is teach us each day how to live with the pain. Loving you forever and missing you so, so much. Mom

My Dearest Son;-There is not a day that goes by that I'm not thinking of you.Since your passing everything about me has changed, My priorities are not so much about this World.I try to keep as close to you as I can.I think of when you were growing up and how much you wanted to learn. You always liked a challenge, and you always beat it. Sometimes I'll be driving to a job,and I'll feel like you're with me.Almost everyday, while working, I'll see a butterfly. Is that you?I feel so peaceful.While driving I catch myself speaking out loud to you,hoping to get a response but never do. I miss your beautiful smile,your unique walk,your intelligent voice, your hugs, your laughter.I know God had his reasons to bring you home, but it's hard to let you go.When I bow my head to pray at night, I feel a chill that you're beside me, holding me. My heart pains knowing I have to wait to see you again.Stay close to me. I love you Son. - Dad

You never said I'm leaving.
You never said good bye.
You were gone before we knew it.
And only GOD knows why.
A million times we need to talk.
A million times we cried.
If love alone could saved you.
You never would have died.
In life we all loved you dearly.
In death we all still love you .
In our hearts we hold a special place,
that only you can fill.
you will truly be missed.
