Thinking of you, Cleve. I miss you.

I wish you were here so we could talk. You always knew how to help me put things in perspective. I am having some cardiac issues and am looking forward to getting April 3 over with. I am having a right sided heart ablation for atrial flutter. I was supposed to have a left heart ablation but found out today I don't have to have it. I am in sinus rhythm and my E.P. does not feel I need the procedure. I am so relieved. It would have been a 3-31/2 hr surgery under general anesthesia.

I was really dreading it. I had 2 docs now I have 5. I also have sleep apnea which is probably what's causing my heart issues. This is the only way I can talk to you. The problem is you don't answer back. I have been so distressed lately.

Apparently when I sleep my heart stops beating and I stop breathing. When that happens I found myself with Mom, Dad, my 5 siblings, and the grandparents. Very strange dreams. I am not in heaven with y'all. We are at Grandma Lee's house in Strawn and she is walking around w/o a head. I am the only one who notices that.
None of y'all know you are dead. Everyone starts telling me I am the one who is dead. So odd.

I look forward to our heavenly reunion. Until then I hug you in my heart every day.
I love you little brother, Your sister JR.

Dear Cleve,
I have had you on my mind lately and I really miss you. I keep thinking you are going to walk in the door but I know that is not going to happen. I have had such deep grief and mourning since you died. I was not expecting it. I think I will always be traumatized by the whole thing. I miss you and wish I could talk to you. Life will never be the same for me. I look forward to our heavenly reunion...until then I hug you in my heart every day.

Your sister,

Dear Cleve,
Today is Christmas and I miss you very much. You should be here with your family.

It has been 5 years since you died but sometimes it seems like a few months ago.

I know you are celebrating Christmas in heaven and I am so happy for you...but I miss your presence here on this earth.

Until we meet again...I hug you in my heart everyday.

Your sister,

Dear Cleve,

Just wanted to say that I miss you and love you and wish you were here.
I miss our talks and our travels.

My life will never be the same.

I still grieve and cry for you but I seem to be getting somewhat better.

Also wanted to tell you that you have a new great nephew. Justin and Kaitlin had a baby boy on November 3. They named him Atley. He is precious. I have two grandsons now.

I miss you more than any words could possibly say.

I look forward to our heavenly reunion... until then I will hug you in my heart every day.

Dear Cleve,

For some reason I have been thinking about us when we were little. You were such a sweet little boy. Sometimes it is so hard for me to grasp the truth that you are no longer on this earth. I love you and miss you more than words can say and look forward to our heavenly reunion.

Until then...I hug you in my heart every day.

Dear Cleve,

I have had you on my mind more than ever lately and thought I would let you know how much I love and miss you. I wish we would have been able to take one last trip together. I have pretty much lost my desire to travel. Maybe some day I will get it back.

Please know that you will always be in my heart and memories. I think about you every day and I probably will until I die.

Until we meet again little brother...I hug you in my heart everyday.

Love you,

Dear Cleve,

I have been thinking about you this weekend and remembering our trip to D.C. in 2008. It was so awesome because we were there Memorial Day weekend. The city was popping. The Rolling Thunder was in town and the streets were packed with Harley's. There was so much activity and such a showing of patriotism.

That is probably the best trip I have ever had and I know I will never forget it. You and I were travel buddies and I so enjoyed taking trips with you. There was no one any more fun to be with than you little brother.

I miss you and love you and continue to grieve for you. Life just isn't the same without you.

Until we meet again, I will hug you in my heart everyday.

Your sister,

Dear Cleve,

Well, my baby boy was married on Saturday. I wish you had been there. You would be so proud of him. They played a disco song that you liked so I knew you were there in spirit. I continue to miss you every day and just need to talk to you.

I love you Cleve and look forward to that day when we will all be reunited.

Until then...I hug you in my heart everyday.

Dear Baby Brother,

Well, today is your 60th birthday and I can hardly believe you are that old! We all wish you were here so we could give you a big blow out birthday!

Your absence from this earth is still very hard to adjust to but I am so comforted to know you are in Heaven with Mom and Dad and the rest of our family.

I am sorry that you died so young and with so many things to do and places to travel and see. You loved being on the go all the time.

I hope they celebrate birthdays in Heaven and that you have the ultimate German chocolate cake imaginable!

Happy birthday brother. I look forward to our Heavenly reunion.

Until then...I hug you in my heart every day.
April 5, 2015

Dear Cleve,

Just wanted to say Happy New Year to you. I can't believe it is already 2015. I wish you were here to go through another year with us. It is so hard to believe that you have been gone over 3 years. Still so painful and difficult. I miss you every single day and it looks like I will be taking my grief into another new year.

I love you and I look forward to our Heavenly reunion. Until then...know that I hug you in my heart every day. You will always be with me.

Love, your big sister,

Dear Brother,

Yesterday was our 19th Annual Lee Christmas party and it was a great success. Gary and Gayle work tirelessly every year to bring our family together to celebrate Jesus birthday. The fellowship and food are incredible.

Gayle had your nutcrackers out and your beautiful glasses on her Christmas table. I told her you are all over the place. We each have things of you that we cherish.

We miss you and wish you were here with us. Out of 8 siblings we now have 3 living. It is so weird.

Gary, Audrey, and I love you very much and not a day goes by that we don't love and miss you. You will always be a part of us.

Well Baby Brother I just wanted you to know you are not forgotten. You are in my thoughts everyday.

Until we meet again...I hug you in my heart every day.

Your Big Sister,

Dear Cleve,

Today is Thanksgiving and of course I think about you even more during the holiday season. I would give any thing to have you back.

We all miss you so. We had 4 little ones running and playing and laughing. I wish you were here so that you could get to know your great nieces and nephews. They would love you so much. You would be U.C. and what an awesome Uncle you would be to them!

I love you and miss you more than words can ever say. I know you are safe and happy and enjoying your eternal home. Tell Mom and Dad and all the brothers and sisters how much we miss them.

I am looking forward to our heavenly reunion. Until then...I will hug you in my heart everyday.

Dear Brother,

Today marks 3 years since you were murdered. I can't believe it has been that long since most of the time for me it seems like maybe last year.

These three years have been so difficult. They have been a combination of grief and mourning; anger and depression. I have never experienced such gut wrenching, agonizing heart pain. Your absence from the earth has impacted our lives and it has been difficult to move on.

Cleve, words can never express what you mean to your family and how badly we hurt for our loss. You were a gentleman who had many fine qualities. You loved your family and had a big heart. You would help those who needed help and you always encouraged others. You had the most wonderful sense of humor and could always find something funny to say. You were grateful to God for all your "blessings" and you shared them with others. You loved your sisters very much and always wanted to protect us. You were so awesome. You bought our wedding gowns when we got married.

I sit here this morning and grieve my loss but I also thank God that you were my baby brother. I will always feel blessed for that gift that God bestowed upon me.

You enjoy your heavenly life with Jesus and all those you love. Don't forget about us. We will see you one day and I can't wait.

Until our Heavenly reunion, I will hug you in my heart everyday.

Love you,
JR

Dear Brother,

I can't believe that this past Monday marked 10 years since Mom passed away. She was such a brave soul to the very end. Never complained. Rested quietly in Jesus.

Give her a hug and a kiss for me and tell her how much I love and miss her and always will.

I miss you too and wish you were here so we could go to lunch and sit and talk and laugh. Someday we will be able to do that again.

Until then...I hug you in my heart every day.

Dear Cleve,

Today was a sad day for me. I had to put Lacy down. She was a great dog...although a pain sometimes as you well know.

I will never forget the day you called me and asked me if I wanted her. She had eaten the wood on your desk, eaten a coconut cake you had for a party, and in one week had completely turned your life upside down! Audrey and I went and picked her up. She was so hyper!! Nothing Man's Best Friend couldn't fix though.

She simmered down in her golden years and I will really miss her presence in my life. Rowdy has been looking for her this evening. I explained to him and I think he understood.

Well Brother, life is full of sadness and pain but we have to keep moving.

I miss you and hug you in my heart every day. Take care of Lacy for me.

"The reality is you will grieve forever. You will never get over the loss of a loved one; you will learn to live with it. You will heal and you will rebuild yourself around the loss you have suffered. You will be whole again but you will never be the same again. Nor should you be the same nor should you want to."

Dear Cleve. Gary made his 64th birthday yesterday. What a miracle!! He could have spend it with you but fortunately he is in remission and doing well. Praise God!

We love you and miss you. Gary took out the bear you bought him a few years ago that plays the song Will you still love me when I'm 64! He said you were there with us celebrating his birthday.

I love you and hug you in my heart everyday and look forward to our homecoming someday.

Dear Brother,

I bet you were excited when Tammy arrived Wed. morning. What a wonderful reunion that must have been. I just feel in my heart that the whole family was there to greet her. I wish I could have been there when she first saw Buddy! I know that must have been the most wonderful experience ever.

Tell her we all miss her and love her and please give her a hug and kiss from Roberta and Mark.

I love you and look forward to our heavenly reunion. Until then, my dear Brother, I will hug you in my heart every day.

2 Corinthians 4:16-18

16 That is why we never give up. Though our bodies are dying, our inner strength in the Lord is growing every day.
17 These troubles and sufferings of ours are, after all, quite small and won't last very long. Yet this short time of distress will result in God's richest blessing upon us forever and ever!
18 So we do not look at what we can see right now, the troubles all around us, but we look forward to the joys in heaven which we have not yet seen. The troubles will soon be over, but the joys to come will last forever.

Also wanted to let you know that our big brother finished his 6th round of chemo yesterday!! That is such a wonderful blessing!!! He is so strong and has such great faith!

I would love to be able to meet you for lunch and just talk. I miss our conversations. I took them for granted. It's amazing how you truly don't know what you have until it is taken away from you.

Until we meet again...
I hug you in my heart every day and hold tight to all my memories of you.

Dear Cleve,

I can hardly believe we are in 2014. Last year was gone in what seemed like a flash.

I wish you were here with us. You were always a rock in times of trouble. Our brother and sister are still battling cancer and both are in the hospital. What a blessing and time of rejoicing it will be when they are finally well. Cancer treatment is a journey and the road is long with lots of twists and turns.

I continue grieve everyday for you. I wish I could go back in time to that night on Oct 11, 2011 and stop your murder from occuring.

Life is so different without you as it should be. You were my baby brother and always will be.

I cling to my hope in the Lord and I know I will see you again.

Until then...I hug you in my heart every day.

Love,

We had a wonderful service for Gary today at his church.Jason preached. We continue to pray for Gary's recovery from cancer.

You would have loved the fellowship with the family. After church we went back to Gary and Gayle's for lunch and birthday cake for Jason and Audrey. It was a great time.

I wish you had been there with us. Oh how I miss you and your strength, support and encouragement during the difficult times.

I love you and I hug you every day in my heart. I can't wait to see you again.

Dear Cleve,

I want to tell you how much I love and miss you and how difficult your absence is for me.

I do have a confession. I have not been as consumed with grief as I was. My focus has been on Gary. He is very sick. I wish you were here to offer us encouragement and support.

We know that God is in control and prayers are going out for him. He is strong in faith and is trusting the Lord to see him through.

I look forward to our heavenly reunion but as you know...I will hug you in my heart until then.

Dear Cleve,

I can hardly believe today is the 2nd anniversary of your murder. It doesn't seem that it has been that long.

These last 2 years have been filled with agonizing grief. The first 6 months or so were extremely painful and I didn't know if my heart could withstand the pain. There were days I would be in such a state of deep thought and grief that I would find myself holding my breath. I literally had to remind myself to breathe.

The grief has been comparable to being on a rollercoaster. Up and down. Never knowing when the next wave would hit.

We have a very long history together and your sudden unexpected death has altered my life forever. I can't go back to the way it was and I can't completely move forward. I remain stuck in the middle. I have found, though, that is the best place for me to be because it forces me to take one day at a time. My prayer continues to be "Lord, heal my broken heart."

My first memory of you was when I was around 2 years old. I swiped your baby bottle out of your mouth and hide under my bed to drink it. That was the first and last time Dad ever spanked me.

I think about you throughout my day and wonder what you're doing. I know you are in Heaven. You are with Mom and Dad and all those you love. Knowing where you are and who you are with brings me such joy and a deep and abiding peace. I am comforted knowing you are safe and in the arms of our Lord.

I continue to grieve but I cling to my hope in the Lord and know that I will be reunited with you one day.

Until then...I hug you in my heart every day.

Your big sister,
JR

You have been gone 20 months today and Mom has been gone 9 years. It doesn't seem possible that she has been in her heavenly home that long. I know you two are together and that gives me such comfort.

I love you and miss you and can't wait for the day that I will join my family in heaven.

Until then...I hug you in my heart every day.

Dear Little Brother,

Today is our favorite day of the week-Saturday!! On Monday's we could hardly wait till Friday arrived. Some things never change!

When we were little we would get up on Saturday morning and watch cartoons and then the Lone Ranger and Sky King.

Mom would fix a big breakfast. You and Gary were pigs. She would stand at her griddle and flip pancakes. We called y'all the "Garbage Disposals." Mom didn't mind at all. As a matter of fact she loved to watch both of you eat 20 pancakes a piece. Personally, it made me sick! I couldn't stomach anything in the mornings but a good strong cup of coffee.

I miss you and though I have hundreds of memories they don't always seem a good substitute for actually having you here.

I always have so much to tell you and it's hard not to be able to call you. One of the things I would say is I will never let you go. You will always be my baby brother. I will always feel protective of you and will defend you against anyone. That's what big sisters do. I fell the same way about our little sister.

I love this picture of you two. It has fire damage but I feel fortunate we still have it.

I love you and just wanted to tell you that. I look forward to our heavenly reunion some day.

Until then...

Dear Brother,

For some reason I was thinking about how hard you worked when you were a young teen. You flipped burgers, had a paper route, worked as a checker at a grocery store. You always worked and never complained about it.

I also remember when you bought your first car--a black baracuda. You used to take the whole neighborhood to school every day.

I wish I had told you more often how proud I was to be your sister. Always was and always will be.

Until we meet again I will hug you in my heart every day.

Love you,
JR

Dear Cleve,

Today is Justin's 25th birthday and I am reminded how much you loved children...especially your nieces and nephews. Here is a picture of you holding Justin just a few days after he was born.

I love you and wish you were here. Until we meet again...

Dear Cleve,

We had a good trip to Strawn this week. I looked forward to going up but was ready to come home.

I miss you very much and needed to visit your grave. You aren't there but it is the closest I can be to you here on earth.

I love you and look forward to the day when we will see each other again.

Until then...

Your big sister,
JR

Dear Cleve,

You have been on my mind all day long. I miss you so much and just wish I could pick up the phone and call you. Or, mine would ring and I would hear you say, "It's meeeeee!"

I continue to grieve over your tragic death. Your absence from this earth does not seem normal or natural. At times I can hardly believe you are gone. Life will never be the same.

Nothing new or exciting to tell you today. Life continues. We are coming up next week to visit your grave and clean the plots. It has been a few months since our last trip up.

Give hugs and kisses to Mom and Dad and all the rest of our family who are there. I look forward to our heavenly reunion and I hold fast to my hope in Christ.

Until then...I hug you in my heart every day.

Your big sister,
JR

Dear Cleve,

Today has been very difficult for me. You haven't left my mind since I got up. Well, I guess you never really do. No matter what I am doing you are always in my thoughts.

I wish I could talk to you. There is so much to tell you. I miss those daily conversations. Your absence from this earth is so difficult for me. I am still deeply grieved by your tragic death.

I wish we could take a brother/sister trip. I miss traveling with you. You were always so much fun! Those memories make me laugh and they make me cry.

I know you are happy and safe and would never want to come back here but I miss you more than you will ever know.I look forward to our homecoming.

Until then...I hug you in my heart every day.

Love,
JR
