Oh mom I miss you so much! This time of year is becoming VERY difficult with you gone. Christmas was always your favorite holiday. I remember when Steph and I were little when we would all make christmas cookies and decorate them by the hundreds! So much has happened since you have left us. I miss our long talks about life. Nothing is the same without you. Love you Mom!

Stephanie and Greg, I just heard about your mother's passing. I am so sorry. I always looked forward to seeing her at the quilt show. The show is coming up this weekend and I had already wondered if I would see her. Our thoughts and prayers are with you. She will be missed.

Colette I will miss you so very much and I love you with all my heart! Remembering the times we disagreed and walked a thousand miles it seemed to hear each other's perception of life. I will be there for you, Greg, & Stephanie whenever you need me. Brian I am so sorry---------- you two are amazing together and always will be.

Collette was a good friend in high school and we lost touch after we graduated. I thought the world of her and I am very sad to hear of her passing. My thoughts and prayers are with her and her family.
