    I love you Mom, I miss you so much. I want to hear your voice. I want to hear you say, “I love you baby”, one more time. Tell Daddy and Karen that I love them. I love you Mom…

    I love you Mom, and I miss you so much. One year ago right now, we were together, I wish I had have never left that day. You were almost ready to come home. Victoria and Wendee were there to make arrangements to bring you home. If only I had have known, I would have stayed with you. There isn’t a day that goes by that I don’t wish I could go back and change the outcome. I love you with all my heart! I hope you know that. All my love, Brenda

    Hi Mom,
    I just spent about 20 minutes writing you a letter, but it didn’t post. I just want you to know we all love you, and we miss you Daddy and Karen so much! Mikey and I just got off the phone, we talked about that Tuesday, the day before you left. Neither of us had any idea that would be the last time we would hear your voice. Every night at 5:14 my alarm rings, it play the most beautiful music, I stop what ever I’m doing and wish that phone would ring again so I could hear you say…”I love you too Baby” one more time. I love you Mom. Karen I love you, and you have the best kids and grandkids ever. They love you Karen. Daddy I love you and I miss you terribly. Just a few days ago it was 15 years that I found out you were sick, that day, March 31, changed my life for ever. I just want you to know, I was always so proud that you were my Dad. We love you all, take care of each other.
