    I sure do miss you everyday. Your our Angel now and we need you watching over us . Your children are all in a relationship now and Lauren engaged to Aaron and Corey engaged to Kayla and Jesse having a good relationship with Jennifer and her two Children. John-Wyatt is already calling them his little brothers and keeps eye on them. Rusty and I have been messenging each other. The children appreciate what their upbringing meant to them with the two of you through hindsight. Jeannie has been helping me with your gardening. I am not sure what a Tribute is but wanted to just find way to kind of talk to you and let you know I just miss you so so so much. You really had a handle on finding new treasures and restoring them to sell. Now people are starting their own businesses doing what you were doing. Another's trash is another one's treasure. I love you and send you a Hug and a Kiss. If you see Brandi in Heaven, Give her hug and tell her Happy Birthday today. Yesterday was Papa's Birthday. So many of our Love ones have left us in our immediate family. Granny and Jack and Cheryl. Now Robbie left us in late February 2022. So many more that we love and miss but I will stop within our family tree.

    My dear little Sweet Maria. I love you so much and it will be hard living on earth without you. I think about you everyday. It is unreal how everything brings back memories of you and I go back in time and remember that day and time. I know God has a time for our beginning and our end. I am so grateful that you called and came home and fell a sleep so peaceful in your bed. Something was telling you that you were going to die and you called just wanted to come home. You were so peaceful and loving and did not have one argument with me about anything I said. Forgive me for trying to be so strick this one evening telling you things have to change. You have to get a job. You have to pay rent. You are going to get your life together. You sure got it together and God took you to heaven. You raised 3 amazing children and you always wanted to make sure that they were in the right place to take care of themselves before you went to be with Jesus. You wanted to make sure John-Wyatt was with his Daddy before you left as well. This was such a concern of yours and in hindsight you accomplished your goal. You had to see Lauren just one more time and accomplished this going to Sarasota. I know you where so proud of them as you watched them arrange their goodbye to you at Crossroads Church and your Uncle Danny and Cousins Brian and Kevin singing "These Chains are Broken". We all love you and will see you again one day. Give Granny and Papa a big hug and all those that have gone before you. Getting to be more and more so will not start naming in fear I may leave someone out of list of those we all love. God Bless You. You sure were on an adventure and I suppose that is why you spent these last 3 years searching for what God had sent you to this Earth to accomplish. I love you forever and ever. Mom.
