Dear Mommie,

I am so happy that Daddy has gone home to be with you. I wish we could have had him here for Christmas, but that would have been selfish. I can tell you, from the day you left us all he ever told anyone was how much he missed you and only wanted to be with you. I don't think you ever realized how much he loved you. But now that he is with you makes me very happy. It is just very sad for us, the family that is missing you and now Pops very much. I want you to know how much I miss you and love you both so very much. Merry Christmas to both of you!

Your Daughter, Maria

Dear Mommy,
I know that I will miss you till the day I die. You took a piece of my heart when you left us but I know you will give it back to me when we meet again in heaven. I know your happy where you are and your very busy with everyone greeting you. Your probably making them all laugh already as you always did. Your pain free. Praise God and Rest in Peace. I love you so much.
Your daughter Diana

I want you to know that you were the best Mother in the world. I will never forget you and the laughter we shared when we were all together. But most of all, I am going to miss your constant Love.
