Another month Dec. 4th I am having a real hard time this month without you. I remember the last Christmas tree we got, you wanted a big one. You, John and mark fighting with it to get it lever before getting it in the house. It was the best one we had in a long time. Another time I will not forget was when Nakota was a pup and you and John left her in the house to go to the store. You guys thought it was ok tel you got back and she knocked it over and broke a lot of the ornaments. You and John tryed to get it back up before I got home. When I walked in the house I asked what happened to the tree. You told me what she did, that tree was a mess but good memmeries. Later that night John was on the couch a sleep and she knocked the tree right on top of him. The other thing you couldn't do was wait for Christmas, most of the time I got my gift before. I love and miss you like crazy. It hurts so bad right now.

It is now Nov. 4th its now been 3 mo. Time is going by fast I miss our talks. I remember this was your favorite time of the year. You loved the smell of thanksgiving. Even though you didn't cook on that day. You would always sneak food and you would base the turkey; so you could say you had a hand in it. You always loved to mess with me by saying the stove did a great job. I got to a point that was a compliment to me. Love and miss you so bad. I love you bab.

Halloween is always my thing jim always got a kick out of me. I love to dress up and he would shack his head and say I am crazy and I know he love it. He always wanted to know what is was going to be and when he could he would help me decorate and always give me good ideas. I will always miss that. Love you and miss you!

My dear love it's now been two months, it still feels like it was today. We got good news today though for once. But I still miss you. I will never be whole again. I miss your wise cracks at me. I miss our talks, I talk to you all the time but I don't hear anything. I am not crying every day now but I still hurt. A very big part of me died that day with you. I wish you where here to enjoy the news we got today, we are getting a new grandbaby. Now that should keep me busy and with 2 weddings. They are going to miss you in these moment in their lives. Everyone thinks i am strong, i am not really, just learning. Love you so much- the love of my life.

November 1992 I got home from school, gene Jim's brother said he was going to watch the kids. I said watch the girls for what, all he would tell me that jim and I where going out to dinner alone. Jim took me to Lions resteraunt. We where just sitting there talking and had just ordered our drinks. I wasn't paying that much attention to what you where doing, just remember my spot light was interrupted, you pulled out the ring as the waitress brought the drinks. You asked me if I wanted to merry you and she said o how sweet. I remember looking at her and how I was just happy. She walked away and I could hear her telling people. I leaned over the table and said yes and I love you and kissed you. Then I said after dinner we where going to my show mom and dad; Jim told me that was already in the plan.
