I don't know if I've ever posted anything in your guest book. I guess now is the perfect time. Well it's my 35th and I miss you more than ever. Ever single day I think of you and love you. It's weird how there's actually a void that only you could fill. You'll always be my best friend and I really wish you were here.

Merry Christmas Linds...I wonder how Christmas is where you are now...I'm lighting candles for you tonight...I've been up and down with emotions this week. Had to get things done for the kids but in my head I would have much rather stay in bed. It still feels so fake and phony, like a cruel joke that someone is playing on us. I miss you very much and right now it's so fresh that I still have some weird hope that you'll be back. I wish with all my heart that you could be with us some how for Christmas. I miss our friendship, our talks, our fights, just hanging out, shopping, doing stuff together with the kids...I am blessed and cursed to have you as my only sister. I wouldn't trade it for the world, I'll take the pain with the joy. I love you so much Lindsay and I hope that you are no longer needing my constant over protection. I still worry about you, even now. Merry Christmas...I love you...Ry.

Warm Summer Sun

Warm summer sun,
Shine kindly here,
Warm southern wind,
Blow softly here.
Green sod above,
Lie light, lie light.
Good night, dear heart,
Good night, good night.

Shauna, Curtis, Ryann, Tylee & Jackson, I want to express my deepest condolences to you at this time and let you know that you will all be in my thoughts and heart during this time. We here at the center were so shocked to hear of Lindsay's untimely passing and thought the world of her. She was such a bright light and a true joy to have around. Tylee, Jackson, Evan and Drake she loved you guys so much and you could see the love she had for you when she spoke of you. Lindsay was such an amazing person and I am so thankful for the time I had to get to know her. To see her interact with children was such a blessing because of the love she had for them. God be with you during this time and please remember the good times and the wonderful memories of Lindsay.

My sweet and precious Indsay Windsay Bindsay. I can still see you and your sister Ryan in my rearview mirror sitting in the back seat of my car (you were only 3 and 5 years old). The radio is playing Jessie's Girl. The two of you are singing as loud as you could (infact you were harmonizing) , smiling having a fun time. The two of you were joy and a delight. You both brought smiles to everyone. I love you!.

Shauna, Ryan, Jackson, Tylee and Curtis. I love you and I am here for you all.

My heart is aching for you. I don't know what I would do if I lost one of my sisters:( You had each other to lean on, to fight with..... just knowing she would always be there for you. I fully understand the bond between sisters and can't even imagine the void. I know no one can replace Lindsay but I hope you know that you have alot of friends that love you like a sister. Please know that we are here to help you through this.

We love you!

Lindsay,

You always welcomed my family and I into your heart and for that I thank you. You will forever be in my heart. I wish we had more time to get to know each other.
I still remember how much you lived adventure and life, always living it up to the highest possibilities.
You will forever be missed.

Ryann,
I know Lindsay loved you with all her being and I know she will forever be with you. Lindsay always made the room light up just by walking in. She’s the biggest daredevil. She always amazed me.
To her babies,
Your Momma loved you so much, and I know she’s so very proud of both of you. You may not be able to see your Momma but know she is there with you every day, giving you hugs and kisses.

To all of Lindsay's family and friends,
I’m so sorry for your loss, you’re in my heart, and please let me know if you need anything.
Save a seat for all of us Lindsay.

Lindsay,

I still remember meeting you in the 5th grade. You had this huge smile and you laughed all the time! You were always so much fun to be around. Even though I haven't seen you since high school it was great re-connecting with you over these past couple of months. I was so sorry to hear of your passing, but I know you are in heaven lighting it up with your smile! Thank you for your friendship.
To Lindsay's family and children- you are in my prayers and I wish you all comfort in your time of loss.

Love,

REMEMBER ME!

Remember me in quiet days
While raindrops whisper on your pane.
But in your memories have no grief,
Let just the joy we knew remain.
Remember me when evening stars
Look down on you with steadfast eyes.
Remember if once you wake
To catch a glimpse of red sunrise.
And when your thoughts do turn to me,
Know that I ...would not have you cry.
But live for me and laugh for me,
When you are happy, so am I.
Remember an old joke we shared;
Remember me when spring walks by.
Think once of me when you are glad
And while you live, I shall not die.

Linds,
We will celebrate your life, I cant stop hearing you laugh and the joy you brought to everybodys life. I love you my sister. RIP!

To my dearest family, some things I'd like to say...
but first of all, to let you know, that I arrived okay.
I'm writing this from heaven. Here I dwell with God above.
Here, there's no more tears of sadness; here is just eternal love.

Please do not be unhappy just because I'm out of sight.
Remember that I'm with you every morning, noon and night.
That day I had to leave you when my life on earth was through,
God picked me up and hugged me and He said, "I welcome you."

It's good to have you back again; you were missed while you were gone.
As for your dearest family, they'll be here later on.
I need you here badly; you're part of my plan.
There's so much that we have to do, to help our mortal man.

God gave me a list of things, that he wished for me to do.
And foremost on the list, was to watch and care for you.
And when you lie in bed at night, the day's chores put to flight.
God and I are closest to you....in the middle of the night.

When you think of my life on earth, and all those loving years
because you are only human, they are bound to bring you tears.
But do not be afraid to cry; it does relieve the pain.
Remember there would be no flowers, unless there was some rain.

I wish that I could tell you all that God has planned.
But if I were to tell you, you wouldn't understand.
But one thing is for certain, though my life on earth is o'er.
I'm closer to you now, than I ever was before.

There are many rocky roads ahead of you and many hills to climb;
but together we can do it by taking one day at a time.
It was always my philosophy and I'd like it for you too...
that as you give unto the world, the world will give to you.

If you can help somebody who's in sorrow and pain,
then you can say to God at night......"My day was not in vain."
And now I am contented....that my life has been worthwhile,
knowing as I passed along the way, I made somebody smile.

So if you meet somebody who is sad and feeling low,
just lend a hand to pick him up, as on your way you go.
When you're walking down the street, and you've got me on your mind;
I'm walking in your footsteps only half a step behind.

And when it's time for you to go.... from that body to be free,
remember you're not going.....you're coming here to me.

I am so sorry for you loss. Although I've only known Lindsay for a short time. Losing her is very sad. From the time spent with Lindsay, I found her to be very beautiful, sometimes shy, soft spoken, she loved her children and seemed to be a good mother. I watched her hug and hold her children often, she corrected them when they needed it, but most of all she talk to them, so they would understand why they needed to do what she asked them to do.

She will be missed by many, but not forgotten.

I just wanted you to know.
That I'll be with you wherever you go.
I've gotten my wings and learned how to fly.
And I'll dry your tears whenever you cry.

Though I've went away and it seems we're apart.
You will forever be my soul and my heart.
The love that we shared will not go astray.
For deep in my heart it will always stay.

You held me close when I was filled with pain.
And your smile gave me sunshine when my life filled with rain.
You guided me when no one else could.
You protected me when no one else would.

We've shared so much that mere words can't express how knowing you has made me feel truly blessed.
So please dear sister, fret not for me, for now my soul is truly free.
So think of me often, as much as you can.
And I'll always be there to hold your hand.

I'll be your angel and guide you through life.
I'll give you comfort through torment and strife.
So thanks dear sister again and again, thank you always for being my sister and my friend...

Lindsay, I keep waking up to the same nightmare...I wish you were here...I'm selfish I guess. Grams talked to me yesterday about Jesus taking all of us home and I saw you! I know I did! I saw your little body being picked up by an angel and lifted up to Heaven. I know you are up there now, carefree...no worries and that is the only thing that gives me peace. I will always love you...My heart is in a million pieces. What am gonna do without you?
