Good Morning Dad,

I’m sorry I haven’t been on here lately. I had to take some time off and work on myself. I’m feeling better than I have in years. COVIID has messed up a lot of things, and work is definitely different. I decided to put myself first for once, and I am continuing to do that. I know you would be proud. I imagine you looking down on me and smiling. Realizing that I am finally taking care of myself. It took a long time to get here, but I’m finally doing it.

I miss you so much, and love you with all my heart. There isn’t a day that goes by that I don’t think about you. I wish you were here to see me make this transformation. I got a tattoo in your memory, and always have your initials on me. Remembering you tagging everything with “JC.” I hope you are having fun with Rocky, we all miss him so much.

I love you with all my heart forever and always.

❤Amber Dawn

Hi there Jack,
Its early but quiet which I like, Carver is always ready to get up, she's my shadow when I'm here, she's such a great dog, I'm so glad we had made the decision to get her before you left us, she got me through some pretty rough times. Fathers day will soon be here, and you my dear were the best, I hope Amber knows how proud you wee just to be her dad, I don't think a day went by that we didn't speak of her and you were so excited to show me her wedding pictures, I'll tell you Happy Fathers day now as I like to leave that special day for the two of you.
I hope mom is settling in, I miss her and I know my dad is lost without her, I seem to have more loved ones with you then here, at least that s what it feels like some days. I miss you with all my heart Jack and if I could have just one more day, the only thing that keeps me going some days is knowing I'll see you again, what a glorious day that will be.
Just wanted to chat for a bit, things are pretty crazy down here as I'm sure you've seen, Ihope for all of us things turn around soon.
I love you Jack and miss you like crazy.
Talk to you soon.
Yours Always, with all my Love,

Good Morning Dad~

So one of my moms best friends passed away, Sandy. She actually was very helpful when you passed away, including her husband Kermit. I'm hoping you guys can sit down and share some stories together. You will be able to tell her some good ones about my mom, that only you could tell. Same goes for me I'm sure, only thing is she'll probably tell you some things I don't want you to know. Lol.

We are still social distancing and constantly wearing masks. Ugh it is horrible!! I hate it, but whatever keeps everyone safe. By the end of my shift I feel like I'm suffocating from wearing these things. I'm hoping we can start wearing our own personal masks that are more comfortable. I wish I knew what was in the future for all of us. This COVIID disease is so new and no one really knows what to do, other than social distancing, washing hands, and wearing masks. Hopefully the vaccine is coming sooner than later.

I love ❤ you very much and miss you. I hate always posting about another angel coming towards you, but I always hope you are there to help the process. Sending you and Rocky lots of hugs and kisses. Happy early Father's Day. Thinking of you often.

Love ❤ you always and forever~ Amber Dawn (kiss the Doodle Bug, Rocky for me, actually all of us)

Hello handsome, gosh I miss you, a day doesn't go by that I'm not thinking of you, you always knew just what to say or do to make things ok, mom is with you now, it's been hard but I have to believe she's happy being herself again. It's just been really rough with this virus out there and naturally I'm an essential worker, no rest for the wicked I guess, I really really miss you. I love you so much Jack.
Yours Always,
Love you,

Hi there Jackster,
Well its a mess here with this coronavirus and scary time. So many lives lost and no cure in sight.
Ambers birthday is today as you know. Cant believe she is 36. So has been working with COVID 19 patients so she needs extra career love ❤ and angel support looking over her.
So many people with you like Poppie now along with many other GM guys. Youll lead them you way and youll have them laughing and having fun and Im sure a few beers. Lots of Love ❤ with the Rockster too. I miss him sooo much.
Your birthday is coming soon too. Hopefully is gets posted.
I just read again all what you did last few weeks with Dave Anable. Id love to chat with him. Im going to try.
For now take care ,
Tami✝❤

Hey Dad

The Coronavirus (COVIID) is really scary and taking too many lives. I've had a few friends lose someone close to them, and my heart breaks for them. Just to know some more Guardian Angels are coming.
I miss you all the time, and love more than ever. Many hugs and kisses being sent your way.

Love ❤ always and forever, your favorite daughter

Hey Dad

I had a lot of dreams about you last night. It's was nice. Having something positive instead of all this depressing Coronavirus crap. Ugh. No fun. Just wanted to tell you that I love ❤ and miss you.

Hi Daddy
It's been crazy with the Coronavirus. Everyone is freaking out. There's a stay at home order for Ohio, that many people don't seem to be paying attention to. Work is hit or miss, some days we are slammed and others are not. I actually think the docs are paying attention to who needs to be admitted and who does not. There's more information everyday, and it's always changing. With all of this going on, the last place you want to be is a hospital.

I miss you. I've been thinking about you a lot lately. I hope Poppie and you are causing some chaos up there. Lol. I'm sure you are. I'm glad he isn't around for this, because it would be extra hard seeing him, and he's be a prime candidate for this disease.
I hope you know I am thinking of you. I haven't been on for here for awhile, and I apologize for that.

Unfortunately there isn't much good to say right now, especially with COVIID19. Just be glad you don't have to deal with it. I'll keep you posted with more information. Hopefully we will make a positive turn, or something good will happen. Like a curing medication, or something. It'll take too long for a vaccine, but it's doesn't mean we don't need one. In Italy people are dying everyday and so many, it's insane. I don't even like watching the news, because it's so dang depressing. I hope everyone over there has some family, or friends there for them. You can't even visit patients at the hospitals right now, and honestly it's a good thing. Everyone needs to stay out and let the sick get better, and not take any of this out with them. It's very contagious. It's a pandemic.

I do miss you everyday and think of you often. It does bring me peace knowing that you and the Rockster are hanging out, playing, and together again. We do miss him sooo much. It's very hard not having him around. I love you with all my heart, always and forever. Kiss the doodle bug for me. Hugs and kisses.

Love ❤ you~your one and only rockstar daughter, Amber Dawn aka Ams Jams

Hi there sweetie,
Wanted to say hi and tell you I love you more and more each day, as you can see things are getting pretty crazy here, I've never seen anything like it, I wish you were here to spend all my down time with, work is crazy and I would give anything for a big hug from you, the hours at work fly by but it's tiring, and people are not very nice during this crisis, but this too shall pass, I just wish I was passing it with you.
Love you forever,
Yours always,

Hi again, well March is here already it seems as though we had no winter which I know you would love, you may have gotten away with shorts all year minus just a few days, but with warm winters more germs and it seems everyone is staying sicker for longer periods. Miss you every day especially at lunch time that hour always flew by but it was the best hour of my day seeing you in the parking lot everyday was always my high point.
Again just felt like saying hello, I love you.
Yours always,

As if one lose isn't enough, Kobe Bryant and his daughter, Gianna were tragically killed in a helicopter crash. I feel so bad for his family. I can't imagine how his wife, Vanessa is feeling losing her husband and daughter. Then her daughters not only losing their Dad, but sister. It's just so sad. I can feel the pain that they are going through, just thankfully my pain didn't have to be splashed on TV, or the internet. My heart literally breaks for them. More Guardian Angels, it seems that Heaven is getting so full.
I love ❤ you with all my heart, Dad.

Hey Dad-
Well we have another Guardian Angel with you. Poppie passed away, but he is in a better place. He was no longer the Poppie we have always known, or the Poppie he would've wanted us to remember him as. It just seems like more and more people have been taken from us. I am glad he is with you and Rocky, and I'm sure you guys are getting into some trouble. It brings me peace knowing you are up there watching over me, and all of my loved ones. I do wish everyday that you were still with me. I love you so much and want to give you the biggest hug. You mean so much to me. Please watch over everyone and help the ones struggling with his lose.
I love you with all my heart, your #1 fan, and favorite daughter, sending lots of love, hugs and kisses.

Hi there Jack, another sleepless night, and as usual my thoughts always wander to you, gosh how I miss you, you always knew the right things to say just when I needed them the most, what I wouldn't give to hear you speak to me again, for now I have to bide my time until we're together again, I wish I knew how many days I needed to count. Just really missing you. Hope you brought the new year in with a bang, not a doubt in my mind you did. Missing you and love you so very much.
Yours always,

Happy New Year Daddy!!

We all miss you and Rocky so much, but happy you guys are together. Mom, Mim, Jason, and I all wanted to wish you guys well, and send our love. I can't believe another has gone by without you. It still doesn't seem possible. I sometimes have dreams about you that are vivid, and I enjoy the good ones, other ones are sad. But honestly any dream is better none. I'll take what I can get when it comes to you.

I love you so much, and miss you even more. I hope I'm making you proud. Things are going to be changing soon, and hopefully for the good. I'm going to reach out to someone and arrange a lunch. Fingers crossed!! I'm counting on you.

Love ❤ you with my whole heart to the moon and back. Hugs and kisses!!

Hello again,
Well I took miss Haley to get her first tattoo, she did really well but it still didn't make me want any but she's been wanting one for a long time so I gave in and told her I'd pay for her first one. Getting ready to head into work early again, I leave when its dark and get home when its dark but my mind stay busy this way. Sorry to hear about Big O, I know how you talked him into more treatments just months before you left us, you were such a good friend to those you loved, I heard from Tink a while back , just out of the blue, wanted to make sure I was still hanging in there, He really misses you as we all do.
Just wanted to say good morning and I'll talk to you soon; Miss you!
Love you Jack,
Yours always,

Just wanted to say Hi and that I miss you, this time of the year is rough, it seems we have more and more empty chairs around the table every year, things haven't been the same nor will they ever be since you left, knowing I'll see you again gets me by but it just doesn't seem to get any easier, work is busy and that helps, never a dull moment in retail. Working a lot of hours with this new position but hoping to be able to retire in the next 5 years, not sure what I'll do with myself though so we'll see.
Miss you and Love you,
Yours always,

We just won the Big 10 Championship game!!! So here comes the playoffs. Should be some good games. I'll tell u something though, we can't have a crappy 1st half in those games at all. Got to be strong throughout. Go Buckeyes!!!

I had Moms surprise retirement party tonight too. It turned out well, I think at lease. We will see how she feels tomorrow about it. Lol. Lots of people came, but was expecting more, especially from all the RSVP's we got. I don't know, all that matters is that she enjoyed it. I hope she did. The cake was amazing. She got some gifts too, excited to see what they are.

Finally think I'm going to sell the rental, yippee. To be continued on that note.....

Love ❤ you Daddy. Miss you always and thinking about you all the time. Hugs and kisses. Love ❤ always and forever, your #1 favorite daughter

Hi there my dear sweet Jack,
It's been a long day and I know I should be tired but I can't stop thinking of you, I miss you every day but the holidays especially these coming up are the hardest without you, I love you so very much and I thank God every night for the time we had together from the first time I laid eyes on you to the last, I am so grateful that we were able to let each other know how we felt and that will never change, I dream of the day I get to see your face again. You were and still are the only one for me and I knew it the first time I saw you and I remember you telling me it was the same for you, I'll be working as usual this Thanksgiving and again I will remember you calling me on those nights to see when I'd be getting off to see you, how I long for those phone calls. Just know that you are missed each and every moment of every day and that I love you with all my heart and miss you so very much.
Yours Always,
Lynn

Hi there Jack,
What a long night its been, every time I closed my eyes I'd see your handsome face, thats when all the memories come flooding in, not just of all the times we spent together but the future we talked about just days before you left us. I can't help but relish these times, its almost as if you are here, everything is so clear as though it were just the other day. I miss your handsome face and seeing you so happy. I don't question why or how often I see you anymore I simply enjoy it knowing you must be close. I changed jobs at work, its a nice promotion, I'll be over the entire front end and just in time for the busy season so at least it won't be boring, I'm excited about it and anxious to see if I can do what they want and make them a team as I've done in fresh as well as the unloaders when I had them, I'm confident that we can do it. I'm sure you've seen me outback with Cassie my newest addition, she's a solid black shepherd and full of energy, Carver keeps her in check though and looks at me as if asking why? but I think she has fun teaching her the dos and don'ts of her house.
I will talk with you son just wanted to chat after thinking of you all night, I love you Jack so very much. missing you every minute,
Yours Always,

Hi Dad!!

Sorry it's been a little while. Things have been kind of crazy. I just wanted to tell you that I love ❤ you. Also please watch over my Mom, she's been extremely stressed. She actually retired this week, so I'm praying that helps her. She really need to relax and take some time for herself. She deserves it more than anyone.

Watching the Buckeyes. We are having a good season and have a lot of hard games coming up. Go Buckeyes!!! I love ❤ you with all my heart. Keep an eye on all of us, our Guardian Angel. Hugs and kisses!!!

Hi,
We sure miss Rocky, but we know he is with you. I told Rocky how much we loved ❤ him, my eyes are watering now. I told him to go to you. He will be a comfort to you. I know your spirit was in him, you could feel it.

Its seems so quite around the house without him being in my office or hanging out in the kitchen cooking or baking with me for hours.

Rocky will be a missing piece of our lives just like you have.
You are our angels now

Your very sweet and love of your life texted me with the news of Rocky, I can't imagine how hard it is for all of them, having Rocky with them was like having a piece of you still here, I know that everyone that had the honor of meeting Rocky fell in love with him, I'll alway remember the look on his face when I saw you, after God had called you home, it was as if he was waiting so he could leave his post for just a moment, Oh and the stories of having food just disappear from the counter top package and all, Tammie had a few of those stories as well, he was her kitchen buddy just hoping she might leave the kitchen for just a moment so he could grab a snack, Amber is right as he is with you now and the joy I imagine on your face when you saw him fills my heart with joy as well, I remember the first time you had to go and stay with your dad and it was just me and Rocky we missed you even knowing it was just one night all throughout the night he'd come over and lay his head on me as if to ask is it time for Jack to come home yet, but he never complained and was always so good, my heart goes out to Amber and her mom, we all miss you so much Jack, be sure to give Rocky a hug from everyone. I know you are smiling not only because of Rocky being with you but of how proud you are of Amber she is so beautiful in looks as well as spirit she definitely has your love for life and her love for all animals, I'll close for now and talk to you soon, I love and miss you so very much Jack.
Yours Always,

August 30, 2019
So, today was the hardest day I've had since you passed. We had to put Rocky to sleep. He had 2 grand mal seizures last night, very scary. He became almost lifeless afterwards for couple hours. We (Mom, Jason, and I) just stayed with him, laying, talking to him, and petting him, making him comfortable. I just kept saying buddy if you want to go be with Dad it's okay; you have been a great dog. We know you are tired. He tried getting up again and was too weak, and fell. So, Jason and Mom took him to the MedVet in Worthington. Basically because he wasn't getting better, and we were worried he'd get worse.

So after that they told us he had a tumor on his liver. Then they was a possibility he may have a brain tumor. I went to work, and they called me with the news. We needed to make a decision. The more we thought about it, we didn't want him to suffer, or be in pain. It's Friday and if we would have brought him home and something happened, or he started to get uncomfortable we would have been screwed, because no vets are open on the weekend. So, I had my charge nurse figure it out and had someone take my pts away. So I could go be with him. We decided if he jumped up when he saw us we'd bring him home. Otherwise he had lived a great long life, and we wanted him comfortable.

He was just laying with Mom when I walked in, and as soon as I did and started talking, he looked up at me. I'd already been crying, and I just exploded then. I laid on the floor next to him, and stayed with him until the very end. It's was intense, but I didn't want him to be alone. It was too hard for Jason and my Mom to watch the last few minutes, which is fine. I was there. He laid his head on my leg, they gave him the medicine and he went to sleep. He wasn't in any pain, and his breathing was slower but comfortable. As soon as they have him the sleeping meds I think it was enough for him to let go. He was so tired, and hadn't slept all last night. But they followed with the other, and now he's in Heaven with you.

I just know he's in a better place, and with you. I told him he can eat whatever he wants, and doesn't have to worry about getting sick. He can run and play, and have all the energy he use to have with his best friend, you. But it has tore us all up, and the house feels so empty without him.

I imagine you just hanging out, and all of a sudden, Rocky comes running to you and you guys start hanging out side by side, like the old days. So a loss for us, but a gain for you. I just want him to know he will be extremely missed and loved always.

It's been an intense couple of months, Rocky being sick, well more just couldn't be left alone for awhile. He needed people with him, and we didn't mind. Mim was in the hospital for her heart and BP, and fainted to start it out. We are still having problems getting Poppie places, but hopefully that is going to be changing. Drew started his junior year. Same stuff with Moms work, on top of all this. She's a trooper, and I don't know how she does it. Jason did tell her last night, Mamaw you can't save everyone. I'm glad he did too, but she needs time for herself too.

Anyways sorry to hit you hard with all this, but I know you got your buddy back. I love you and miss you always. Everyday you are on my mind. Once we get Rocky back, I'm going to combine some of your ashes together, and we are going to have a celebration of life.

Love ❤ Always and Forever ~ Amber Dawn (Ams Jams) your #1 daughter and #1 fan. Hugs and kisses . Enjoy yourself with Rocky. He's in your hands now. ❤

Hey there, well its that time of year, yep Bristol, one of the assistant managers went and of course I had to tell him a few stories, From the first time we really talked at the credit union you would ask me every year if I wanted to go. knowing I couldn't but you called me just like you said you would and I'd be sitting in my office listening to the cars, you always made me feel like I was there and your phone calls always made my day. I didn't watch it this year as I said before lately its been tougher then normal with you not here, I miss you so much, Just sitting here and wanted to say Hi, and tell you I love you,
Yours Always,

Hey there handsome, weather has been just what you love lately, makes me miss you more, we were always doing or going somewhere, always getting the most out of the summer months. I still feel lost without you to talk to and I think of you always, my mind always wanders to you, I never knew anything could be so hard but not having you here is definitely the hardest thing I've ever had to do. I know you'd be here if you could, I still see your face as clear as the day we met, and that smile of yours, that does bring a smile to my face when I think of you. Just wanted to say Hello and tell you I Love You,
Yours Always,
Lynn

Missing you so much,
Yours Always,
Love you,

Getting ready to sell the rental. Jason and I are going to get it all ready and I'm praying that it isn't something that requires a lot of time. I know it will require some, but there is just so much going on, and I hope the rental is the easy part. Not that anything comes easy for me.

I'm just coming off a stretch of work, went up to the lake and spent some time with Mim. Little girls time, I enjoyed it very much. Now I'm about to start another long stretch of work, like 6/7 days straight. Not going to be fun.

I love ❤ you with all my heart!! Thinking of you always. Keep an eye on everyone for me please. Be the Guardian Angel I know you are. Love ❤ you always and forever!!!

Hi there Jack,
Well another angel has joined you it seems like with each passing year more and more people I have to say good bye to but none compare to having to say those words to you, but I know without a wavering doubt that we will be together again, you are my every dream come true from the first time I ever laid eyes on you and you continue to be so. Seems like I'm always worn out these days but I did get some raised beds planted, knowing how much you loved planting a garden, wish you were here to see the progress but your view is probably better, I miss you every day you are always the last one I think of as I go to sleep, and the first I think of when I wake. Its been a wet summer so far a lot of storms in Galion, the dogs and I usually go out to watch I trust that they will let me know if it gets too close, Carver is always by my side keeping me safe and is quite jealous of Callie my long coat shepherd, they keep me company and I feel quite safe here alone.
I will close for now but wanted to take a moment to tell you I love you so very much and miss you with all my heart.
Yours Always,
Lynn

Dad❤

First I want to apologize to you, because it has been way too long since I've posted anything. Second we moved, yippee, but that's an entirely different conversation lol, but a good one. Third I'm selling the rental property, no more land lord. The next sentence I have deleted and rewrote numerous different ways, lol, because I want to say selling the rental and hope it goes smoothly. Unfortunately I am who I am and nothing ever seems to go smoothly, easy, not complicated, or whatever. Then to tie everything together there is the Poppie situation. So to put it all together these last 1-2 mths have been crazy, insane, nonstop, busy.

I don't even know where to begin, and honestly I don't even really want to talk about anything. Lol. It's just been a mess. I'm trying to help Mom as much as I can. She is just taking on soooo much, and not even including the Poppie situation, she works full time. I do hope that moving in has helped. At first I didn't think that was the case, and even felt like we were in the way. Scamper was all over the place, but now I think she thinks he's funny. He also is getting better at not getting on things. Hopefully it won't be too long, but the renters will be moving out at the end of this mth, and hopefully I can sell it by myself. I literally am going to put a sign in the yard with my number and cross my fingers. If that doesn't work I'll get someone to help me, but I really don't want to do that at all. We will see what happens. Keep me in your prayers. ❤

I know there's so much more I need to tell you, but I think that's going to be it for tonight. I just worked 3 in a row, off yesterday, back today, off tomorrow, then back for 2 more. Crazy couple of days on top of Poppie getting into an argument with his roommate and falling, then requiring sutures to fix his laceration and ear. Yes he's been in the hospital, but hopefully he'll be getting better because we are going to get him some therapy. He just can't do it by himself anymore, and honestly he hasn't been able to for awhile. It just took awhile for us to get him to go along with it.

Anyways I love ❤ you with all my heart, and promise to post more often and keep you updated. Even though I think of you all the time, and I know you are watching over me. I tell myself that, and it makes me feel better. I miss you, and I wish I would have made you come live in Delaware a long time ago. There are so many things I wish I could do over. But, can't go backwards only forward unfortunately.

Sending you lots of hugs and kisses keep an eye on all of us, and extra on my Mom. Really worried about her right now, and she's my/the rock that keeps everything together. I love ❤ you, Dad with all my heart.

Love ❤ always and forever~ Ams Jams

Hey Dad!!

Just wanted to let you know that my message to you on your bday posted on the 26th, because I finished it at like midnight. So, it should have been on the 25th, frustrating.

Anyways, we are packing and moving today and finishing tomorrow. It's been hectic. But, I'm so looking forward to it being done. Just thought I'd drop you a line and say hello, and I love you with all my heart ❤.

Love ❤ you always and forever ~ The Williams, Jason, Drew, Scamper, Rocky Doodles and I.

Happy Birthday Dad!! ❤❤

I can't believe it's been another year without you, it doesn't seem real sometimes. You are loved and missed so much by so many people. I wish we could have a beer together today for your bday, because I know that is definitely something you would have wanted to do. Since we are in the process of moving, and I'm just coming off a stretch at work, we will celebrate your bday in a few days. When we can actually enjoy it and be able to do it right. Probably do a shot, have a cheers and definitely spread some ashes in your memory. I'd like Mom, Mim, Jason, Rocky, and I to get together and reminisce.

You know I still haven't watched our homemade movies. There are still some things I just can't seem to do, it's too hard. I do think it is time that I try, though. Mom and I both say sometimes you need a good cry. While we have been packing, I've found some photos I haven't seen in awhile. It was a nice surprise.

I hope you are enjoying your bday with everyone you spend time with. Like Grandpa Carver, Ruger, Coco, Tara's parents, Tinky's wife, all our animals, and anyone else special enough to be with you. I just wish I could be there, and I know Lynn does too, actually if I'm wishing anything, I'm wishing you were here. I hope you have a great 63rd Birthday!! Mom made some of your favorites dishes tonight, and I can't wait to eat them. They will be delicious like everything always is.

I love ❤ you with all my heart, always and forever. I enjoyed the time we got to spend together, and only wish it wasn't cut so short. I know you enjoyed your life, and I'm glad you retired early (now lol) so you were able to relax and do whatever you wanted. You worked all the time, and definitely deserved to do what you wanted to do. I just wish it wasn't cut so short. You were taken too soon from us, and it's just not far.

Okay I need to be positive and remember all the amazing times we had together, and the memories we made. Those things are precious to me and I will treasure them always. I love you with all my heart, and I'm your number one fan. Love always and forever~ Amber Dawn aka Ams Jams

Happy Birthday Jack! I see Amber has been busy uploading pictures. Almost every morning she works, she texts me with a uplifting text for the day. She loves Snapchat as you can see with her bunny ear pictures. She should be a bunny , since day one of her life she was wrapped in blanket and blanket was made with bunny ears.
Making some scallop potatoes and ham today. I know you really liked them. I have a ton of baking to do for work today for a big presentation tomorrow. Rocky will be hanging out in kitchen with me hoping for some food to drop on floor. Lol
Amber let you know his heart ❤ is slower and we have decided to let nature take its coarse. He is 12 1/2 now. We all love ❤ Him so much, but when time comes he can come hang out with you.
Know you are our

Happy Easter and it's my Birthday!!! It has taken 35 years for my birthday to fall on Easter again. Mom is always talking about me having bunny ears on when I was born. Unfortunately it's another year without you. Your birthday is coming up in a couple days too, it's a busy week.

We had Jason's grandma Diane's 80th birthday party today. There were so many people there, and it's just Jason's moms side of the family. I'll post the picture, and surprisingly we are actually missing around 10 people still. It's so different going to a family function on his side, compared to mine. It was very nice, but kids were running around everywhere. Lol. I use to know everyone's names, but now with everyone getting married and having kids, it's very hard to keep up.

We are moving at the end of this month, we have to be out by 4/29. I'm actually looking forward to it, not the packing and moving part, but the getting out of here part. Moving in with Mom and Papaw, to save money, sell the rental in Mansfield, and figure out where we are going to go. Might buy Mom's house, may move somewhere different, we just are not sure yet. Rent is ridiculous here and just keeps going up. Since we moved into our condo the rent has gone up almost $500, without any updates or anything. The apts get all updated now once someone moves out, but nothing for the people that have been living here. It's pretty much a house payment, and would be something to help us with taxes if it was a house, but it's not. I wish I didn't have to sell the rental, but it's just become too much, and it's so hard to find good renters. Once we move and sell, we will have some money to help us get everything situated, and hopefully make things better all around.

This week is always hard for me. It would be so nice to be able to hear your voice, or get a hug or kiss from you. When I have dreams about you, I never want to wake up. Speaking of dreams, Mom has been having twin boy dreams. Yikes!! She swears if I would get pregnant it would probably turn out to be twins. Makes me scared just thinking about it, especially because I would love to have a girl. Still not even sure if it's something I want to do. The world is a scary place, and I don't know if I want to bring someone into it. I still have time, but I guess it is narrowing down, now that I'm 35. Ugh!!

Anyways, just wanted to stop in and say I love you, and I know you are wishing me a Happy Birthday. Even though you are not here, I still like to think I know what you are thinking. I miss you like crazy, and love you with all my heart. Sending you lots of ❤ love, hugs, kisses, and Easter candy. You are the best father I could have asked for. I almost forgot to thank you for the necklace you and Mom got me for my bday. She is always thinking of you, keeping you in my life and including you in my gifts. She's the best!

I love you always and forever with my all my heart ❤ to the moon and back!! Hugs and kisses, from your number one fan, and favorite daughter.

Hi Jack,
I never thought it was possible to miss someone so much every single day but iI know now just how possible it is, I miss you with every ounce of my soul and I think I have every minute we spent together memorized in my head, I just love you so very much, it was around this time that we found our way back to one another, gosh I can't wait til we find one another again, for I know we will, thats what keeps me from totally falling apart. Just wanted to tell you I miss you still so very much and that I love you,
Yours Always,

Hey Dad.

Got some news for you. Rocky is doing okay now, but had some rough days. Scared Mom to death, she thought he was having a stroke. Luckily he wasn't, but she took him to the vet. He has a new heart murmur, and his heart is beating slower. They asked her if she wanted to take him to a cardiologist, but she said she had to talk to me first. I said no, because it'll cost a fortune. They will order labs and run tests, and the outcome would probably be new meds. I mean he is 12 and 1/2 years old, but he's happy, healthy, not in any pain. So, Mom has him on a new food regimen, and we just make sure he isn't alone for long amounts of time.

He is the best dog ever, and everyone loves him. So we are taking good care of him, and loving on him a lot. I don't even want to talk about it, but it's going to be really hard when that time comes. I would never let him suffer, and just want him to be comfortable.

Little change of subject. Drew turned 16, and had his license. Where had the time gone? I can't believe he's driving. You will never believe what he got for his birthday!! Without any input from Jason or I, not that my input matters that much, but Jason should have had an opinion no matter what. Anyways his mother bought him a brand new Jeep Renegade. Can you believe that?? It's ridiculous!! We were both really upset. You don't get a 16y.o a new car, your first car is a beater, and you learn how to drive, and appreciate when you get something nicer. Funny thing is he doesn't even like it, cause it's a stick. I think that's hilarious!! Then she complains about money, well you won't be getting any additional from us, especially when you don't even talk to Jason about your decisions.

I feel like everything I'm talking about is pretty negative, but I had to tell you. I don't allow anyone to be around me that's negative, and try not to talk negative a lot. It brings you down, and I definitely don't want that. We are moving next month. I'm looking forward to it. We are soooo sick of living where we are at, the rent is ridiculous, and the whole point of moving there was to save $. Well when we moved in it was like $850 and now it's close to $1300!!!! Can you believe that? We have talked to some of our neighbors, or people who use them live there, and everyone hates it. It's nice to know that we we not the only people that feel that way.

Almost done with my ICU classes, then I will orient in my ICU for couple weeks, and then go to Riverside and get some more experience. I'm excited about it. I want something a little different with work. I'm not leaving my position or anything, but adding to my resume, and will be able to work in the ICU too.

So, it's March Madness and you know it's one of my favorite sporting events. I didn't even fill out s bracket this year. We have just been so busy at work, that when I got home the other day, I completely forgot to. It's actually been kind of nice, cause I'm just rooting for the under dogs. Lol. Watching the Buckeyes right now, and I don't expect them to go far. Hate saying that, but I think that's the truth unfortunately.

Well, I think I got you caught up with most of the important information right now. We are hanging with Rocky right now, and I think he needs to go outside. So, I will keep you updated on everything. I love you with all of my heart!! I miss you all the time, and we all think about you. I got someone's head on my leg right now, giving me big puppy dog eyes. Sending you lots of love, hugs, and kisses.

Love ❤ you always and forever ~ Ams Jams

Its just me, feel like talking a bit so here I am, I just wanted to remind you of how lucky I feel to have loved and been loved by you, I always loved that we became such close friends before our time to be together came around, I think even then someone was looking out for us, my heart always skipped a meet every time you walked into the credit union and I loved the fact that you would stick around if I were busy just to say Hi, I think of you all the time just like I did before you were called home, even now you make me smile, and yes there are still so many tears, but nothing can change the way I still and will always love you. I miss you so very much Jack, you're my best friend and so much more, just wanted to let you know you're still the only one for me. I love you,
Yours Always ,

Sometimes I just get on here and read everything again, actually that's a fibber (lol), it would take forever to read it all. I do read as much as I can, or emotional can. I enjoy the comments that Lynn and my Mom post, talking about you and I. I've been reminiscing though some pics, but I need to start going through all the pics and organizing. That'll take days, and I think I might ask Lynn if she'd like to come down also.

Alright gotta go get ready for work. Can't be late. Lol. I love ❤ you Dad with all my heart to the moon and back. I say that to Mom too.

Hugs and kisses!!! Love always and forever!!

Hi Jack,
I am so mad my message didn't post before Christmas! Hope this one does. I see the girls always post wonderful messages for you. Amber and Lynn have been always in your heart.

I know this time of year is super hard for them and all of us. Amber was crying today to Mim and I. I just hug her real tight. Tell her you are in a better place with God. We've had a few love ones pass this year.
Time has passed it seems like at lightening speed. Can't believe it's been 6 years.

I am hoping next year is less stressful, more laughter, health and happiness. Maybe a pot of gold!
You never know.
Merry Christmas and Happy New Year. You are missed. Love all of Amber and Lynn's posting and pictures.

Hi there handsome,
Its been a rough couple of weeks to say the least and tomorrow will be the worst, marking 6 years since you were called home, it never gets easier like everyone tries to make you believe, in fact I think it gets harder with each passing moment, you knew that when you made me promise not to go first and leave you, I Love you so very much and miss you each moment of each day, we will be together again and thats what keeps be going, I just wanted to remind you of how much you are loved by so many, I'll see you in my dreams,
All my Love,
Yours Always,
