You have been gone now for almost 30 years, it is hard to look at my life and think about the things you have missed out on because of the day someone took your life from us.
As I enjoy each of my 8 grand children, getting to be Grammie to them, and Mom to my children, it hurts my heart you only knew one of my kids. You never got to live long enough to meet my husband and the two wonderful girls I married after you died.
You never got to meet the little girl that looked just like both of us and has your name.
There are so many things you have not been here to see, but I pray you can see from where you are. The impact your life has made on mine and those who are part of my world is incredible!
Many years ago, right after I married Scott and we had our youngest daughter, we took a family picture and I placed one of those pictures in the bottom of the flower urn so you could meet my new family.
Over these past 30 years, some years I have missed you and some I have been mad that you are gone. I know it’s not your fault you are no longer with us, but it is hard to be mad at the person who caused the accident, especially since I don’t even know their name.
The lady that took your life took my Mom, my children’s Meme, and my grand children’s Great Meme. I forgive that person, but I miss what we could have shared as a family.
Now with four grown children, two spouse’s, a Shane, seven beautiful grand daughters, and our Jackson Paul, it would be nice to have you be part of our world and help love on all these kiddos.
Mom meet my world.
We have two that are camera shy, Steven who you know and loved, and Jonathan. Miss you Mom, Happy Birthday!
That is all I got today! God bless you and yours.
