But its still so hard being without you! I can't wait to see you again someday and get a big hug from you. Colton and I love you bunches! Love your daughter- crystal lynn

Hey dad just wanted to let you know I miss you. I don't have you to call on Sunday nights to tell you my fishing reports. I don't have you to call and aggrevate about kyle busch winning the race. I don't have you to cook out on sundays. Things here will never be the same without you.No matter what happens in my life it just won't be the same. I love and miss you so very much.

To my Little Brother with all my Love.

When we lose someone we love, We learn to trust somehow that a New Life in a brighter place is just beginning now.
A place of grace and peace and joy beyond all time and sorrow, Where loving hearts who part today Will meet again tomorrow.

Kelly you will forever be in my heart. It's hard to understand what went wrong and why and I know God never makes a mistake but it's hard to loose a sibling that's younger than myself. I know your enjoying the streets of Gold and your richer now than you have ever been before. So enjoy your time in Heaven until we all meet again. I'm sure mom and granny Goss were waiting for you with open arms. Hugs and Kisses from your big sister.
