I miss you so much I feel so empty. I feel that you will be at home to greet me with open arms and a big smile. It is hard to realize that isn't going to happen anymore. I will miss making you laugh at what I said or what I joked about. I still hear your voice in my heart. I no you would want us to be strong and not be sad. But the loss we feel would crumble the strongest bridge.The vision of you in front of us I no will lead us threw this, and your voice by are side will someday make us laugh again.

Love You Ma
Your Son Michael

To my cousin Johnny and family,
I was sadden to hear of Virginia's passing. I will always remember her with fondness. She was such a nice person and a real lady. Although way too few, I will always cherish the times when our family had a chance to get together. My only regret is that those times were so few.
