  1. wish you all did not go

    not a day goes by that my heart does not ache with pain. I wish I could understand why God took you all from us so soon and way too young. I know you are watching over me always, but the pain today alone is killing me daddy. i really need you ,, even as we grow up we still need the understanding and wisdom of our parents . we always need to have that stamp of approval, and yet we can not even touch you never mind talking, I talk to you all the time and I am sure you are saying christ sake christina give it a rest. That makes me smile just thinking of you saying that. Aunt Patsy has been awesome and has been there for us through everything, just wish we lived closer to help out some. Jimmy Joe and alyssa are my rocks daddy but I feel horrible that I can not take the pain away for them an they are being so strong to shelter me. I know one day when i am standing before God he will tell me the reasons for all this heartach but until then all i can do is keep you all alive through me , I will work hard and make you proud every chance i get. I will always stand by my family and let them know I love them every single day as you did for us. I love you daddy, please hug mommy and larry for me and please all of you come and visit me soon…love always

  6. 13 months

    today marks 13 moths that you have not been here with us physically- I feel you and larry with us all the time.Daddy/grandpa we miss you more today and each then before. we will always have an empty feeling in our hearts, we are moving forward taking it one day at atime. Mommy is going to always be alright we will die making sure. and daddy you know what is happening and I am sorry for what she is doing – all we that includes mommy all we want is for you and larry to be resting in peace and as long as that one keeps doing or if i respond to her childish ways you will not be at ease, nor will mom so i decided to ignore her honor your wishes and I am so sorry that she did not give you the peace on earth but I will not respond to her so you can have peace in heaven,I do not know why she always needs to do this but I can not allow her to hurt this family so I feel if I just do not let her bother me or push my buttons as you and mom always say then I know well i hope she will just live her life without trying to always hurt us. MArgaret has always thought of Margaret as you already know and that will never change and I accept that but I will not let her go against your wishes and plans that I swore in front of god as my witness- that I would make sure would always happen. and now larry is with you I know he two knows your thoughts and hopes and i know he said he trust and believed me but any doubts I know you have cleared up. so i promise just to do as you asked and also take care of mommy forever always. we love you daddy and please always watch over us as you have been I need your strength as you were always our inspiration to move forward and do better.Love you
    forever always
    Christina,Jimmy, joe and Alyssa

    My dearest daddy,I can not believe six months have passed. the sadness in our hearts still feels so strong and I think that will never change. we are trying so hard to make you proud of us but it is not easy with you not here to guide us the way you always have. I am doing everything that you asked of me and will do so forever and Jimmy and Joe and Alyssa are also going to honor your wishes that you told them as well. you never have to worry your dreams will live on through us. I still find myself going towards your room to check on you or just to have our special moments and those days it really kills me because reality hits and I break down. Mom is hanging in there and sees now we are here for her not against her . We have done nothing but do as you asked , what you requested directly to us Jimmy and myself and the kids.I know you have to see that we are doing everything and will never change that , so rest in peace daddy knowing that no one or thing can ever take away your goals and dreams for Joe and Alyssa you always felt bad that they helped so much so young, but they would give anything to beable to do that all again just to have some more time with you , you were and are there whole life and that will never change. daddy know that you wilalways remain in our hearts and souls.

  27. Uncle Larry

    There are some people who are put in this world to make other people feel happy. Even at his sickest times in the hospital, if he had enough energy to tell a joke or share a story the whole room would be laughing. I will miss him but I know now there is another guardian angel in heaven looking after us all.
