Mom its been so hard living life without you...I try not to think about everrything back in life that has happened...but sometimes the thoughts just overwhelm me. It doesn't seem real to me that you are gone...its kind of like you where just a wonderful dream that had to end all to soon. I know you are watching so you already know about your beautiful grandaughter and how great things have been. All of us have come a long way in 7 years but there is still one thing that keeps our minds stuck in the memories are all that we have left and we hold tight to those until the day we all meet again. Dad says that Josey sticks her pinky out like you used to. she is my angel...I finally have something that is worth living for. Its hard sometimes to be the strong one...when I'm so fragile inside. I have to be strong for everyone...I just wish I still had you to be strong for me.

Mother, It's been 7 long years since you left us all behind. I still have no clue how I have gotten by without you for so long. I think of you every single day. Most days I'd rather be with you up in heaven than down on this Earth without you. I have a wonderful fiance now and he is there whenever I need him as I am there for him, but sometimes it's just not enough. I love him to death, but there is still this huge hole in my heart that can no longer be filled. Sometimes I just break down because I need my mother to talk to so bad but you're not there. I will be graduating soon. But the day I dread most is my wedding day because you will not be there to share that beautiful day with me. Mother you will never be forgotten, You will be forever in our hearts. I Love You and Miss You Dearly

They say that life is fleeting
I know that this is true
I left this world so quickly
With no goodbye to you.
I know how much you miss me
Your tears fall ever light
The pillow where you lay your head
Is wet with them at night.
I know your heart is hurting
The words we left, unsaid
I love youís left unspoken
Are spinning in your head.
The strength that I have carried
That served to make you whole
Remains to make you stronger
Within your grieving soul.
For you see, while you were weeping
On the day I passed away
At the gravesite near the flowers
Where my loved ones knelt to pray.
An angel came to see me
She took me by the hand
She led me to a kingdom
In a very distant land.
As I look down from the heaven
And see you standing there
Your heart so ever burdened
With more weight than it can bear.
I long to bring you comfort
I long to give you peace
I long to hold you closely
Cause all your tears to cease.
The joy Iíve found in heaven
Goes far beyond compare
The love thatís so elusive
Can be found here everywhere.
The light is softly shining
Thereís no storm clouds here or rain
Thereís no teardrops found in heaven
Thereís no suffering, thereís no pain.
You neednít be so troubled
Stay close to God and pray
That someday weíll be together
One bright and glorious day.
So my love, you shouldnít question
My dear you need not cry
Iíve gone to be with Jesus
I really didnít die.

Dear Sweet Josephine its been 6 sad and very lonely months since you passed, it never seems to get any easier,I miss you so much it hurts. I wish I could have that last day back again,just to talk to you maybe things would be differant, and you would still be here with us in your whole person instead of just in my heart and memory. I love you now and forever, And I swear I will do my best to keep your memory alive for your girls and everyone.Love always Your sister Tina.

I'm Free
Dont grieve for me,for I'm free;I'm following the path God laid for me.I took his hand when I heard him call;I turned my back and left it all.I could not stay another day,To laugh,to love,work or play.Tasks left undone must stay that way;I found that place at the close of day.If my parting has left a void,Then fill it with remembered joy.A freindship shared,a laugh,a kiss;Ah yes,these things,I too,will miss.Be not burdened with times of sorrow;I wish you the sunshine of tomorrow.My life's been full,I savored much;Good friends,good times,a loved one's touch.Perhaps my time seemed all too brief;Dont lengthen it now with undue greif.Lift up your heart and share with me;God wanted me now,He set me free.
