Today is: March 3rd, 2020,

My True Love of my Life, Steven W. Roberts: Well, I guess you have already have seen our beautiful grandchildren looking down from Heaven, Justin is 4 years old, and Paisley is 2 years old. Both of them are adorable and every now and then I catch a glimpse of your smile upon their faces. Both of our sons, Wesley & Micheal are doing Great!! Micheal just got married to our sweet daughter in law, Emily. She is wonderful mom and takes good care of of our grand-babies. They have a horse, just like you did. Justin gets up everyday to feed her. They have had several different farm animals and they love being outside. Our oldest son, Wesley, (still single--ugh!) has been a supervisor for the maintenance department at the Wood County offices for nearly 6 years. I can tell that he has followed your foot steps a lot especially when he talks about anything, he thinks and sounds just like you. We spend as much time together to make and share family memories. I know you are near us everyday and watching us grow together. Thank you Dear for watching over me, I can feel your present near me. You are my Everything and will always be my True Love... Sending all my Kisses and Love to you in Heaven, forever....... until we meet again. Much Love Always, Sylvia Roberts

Last evening we were sitting in a restaurant and a gentleman came rushing up to us and asked if we had the SUV that was parked out front. He continued to tell us he had known you personnally and you were the best. Continuing, he wanted us to know that we had raised a fine young man and he was so proud to have known you. Then he wished us a "Happy Mother's Day." The tears fell. There isn't a time of day that we don't think of you and wish you were here with that beautiful smile and saying "I love my motorcycle!" You and Grandpa enjoy riding your Harley. We love and miss you with all our hearts.

12 years and it doesn't get any easier. I miss you so very much. I love you Little Brother


February 11, 2011

It has been a long time. I knew you for what seems like such a short period in my life, but you made an impact on me and as well as others. I have grown up now and am doing well, but I still think about the past, and am sad. I'm glad that your son has no more anger, and I know that was you that helped him get through it. Thank you, and I know that you will always be watching over everyone. If I never told you, you and your family meant the world to me. I wish I could've told you then, but I can only hope that you are watching me write this and understand why this is so hard. Thank you to all of you. 11 years doesn't make it easier...

It's been 11 years today dad, and it's the first time I've talked to you since. I have lived with the pain for 11 years and it still seems like yesterday. I've never moved on, I've never forgotten. I know it wasn't your fault, but I've blamed you for 11 years. I felt somehow you left me, and maybe that's why I blamed you. But not anymore, I want to say I miss you so much dad, I miss you so damn much. This is the hardest thing I have had to write in 11 years, but I feel I need some closure still. Things in life haven't felt the same since you left. Everyone else is doing good, and I'm not. A lot of people have looked to god to help ease their pain, and I blamed him as well for what happened. I know I shouldn't, but I had no one to point the finger at. People tell me god has better plans for you. I can't accept that, I'm sorry, NO ONE had better plans for you than me growing up as your son. Life seems meaningless without you. I have gone on day by day wondering what the heck I should do without you. Life seems useless without you, I never really told you how damn much I really loved you. I don't know why I am writing this now today, I don't know why it took me 11 years, but I have to say something finally. I miss you dad, and I love you very much. No amount of time will ever heal the pain I received from losing you, ever. I don't think I'll ever be the same, nothing in my life will as ever be as great as having a mom and a dad. Someday I hope I get to see you again dad, somehow, some way. I used to look everyday for a sign that you are still around me, but I never recognize anything, I just wish there was someway you can tell me you are there for me still even though I can't see you. Well my eyes are watering so bad I can hardly see the screen, I miss you dad, so very damn much. And even though it's been 11 years today, if you don't know it, I still love you with every bit of my heart I have left.

It's been 10 years and I still think of you everyday
I think about Cooper and Danny and Jimmy all the time and now with the most recents deaths in Oakland it just brings it all back to me. Another tragedy more lives taken, more families feeling the heartache that your loved ones and friends have had to endure over the years. I know that you are all missing your families and friends and one day we will all be together. Just know that you are not forgotten,just know that you have inspired many men and women to pursue their dreams. You are all heroes in our eyes. We love and miss you all very much. Please give my Dad,Linda and E.T. a big hug for me.

Thinking of your loved ones today and everyday. I know the daily struggles they face without you and the terrible pain within their hearts. God, wrap your loving arms around them and help them with their grief and let them feel your presence.
Your sacrifice has not been forgotten.

A decade has passed and to some that has felt like a life time since they last were able to hear your voice, see your smile and feel your warm touch. To others if has felt like only yesterday. What ever the case, all miss you beyond words for their love for you will forever burn in their hearts. Continue to keep watch over all of your loved ones. You have not been forgotten.

My Dearest Family and Friends

Somethings I'd like to say but first of all to let you know that I arrived okay.

I'm writing this from Heaven where I dwell with Our Lord above. where there's no more tears or sadness just eternal Love. Please don't be unhappy because I'm out of sight, remember that I'm with you every morning,noon and Night.

The Day I had to leave you when my Life on earth was through God picked me up and hugged me and He said I welcome you.
It's good to have you back again, You were missed while you were gone. As for your Dearest Family they'll be here later on.
I need you here so badly as part of my big plan. Theres so much we have to do to help our Moral Man.
Then God gave me a list of things that He wished for me to do, and foremost on that list of mine is to watch and care for you.
I'll be beside you everyday and through out the years, And when your sad. I'm standing there to wipe away your tears.
When You lie in bed at night the day's chores put to flight God and I are close you in the middle of the night.
When you think of my life on Earth and all the loving years, because your only human they are bound to bring you tears.

Please don't be afraid to cry, it does releive the pain.

I wish that I could tell you all that God has planned, But if I were to tell you You wouldn't understand.One thing is for certain, though my life on Earth is over I'm closer to you now than I ever was before.

To My many Friends, Trust God knows what is best.I'm still not far away from you I'm just beyond the crest.

So, If you can help somebody who is in sorrow or in pain, then you can say to God at night my day was not in vain.
And now I am contented that with my life. it was worth while,Knowing as I passed along the way I made somebody smile.
If you meet somebody who is down and feeling low just lend a hand and pick him up as on your way you go.
When Your walking down the street and you've got me on your mind just know Im walking in your footstep only a half a step behind.
And if you feel a gentel breeze or wind upon your face thats me just giving you a great big hug or just a soft embrace.
I will always love you from the land way up above We'll be in touch again soon
PS God sends his Love.
