I miss you every day but some days are just harder than others. Today is one of those days. I know you are watching over us and can see how big the kids are getting. Sage and Gage hit it off at the wedding like they had been cousins their whole lives. I know it was meant for both of our Step-Sons to be the same age and have names that were almost exact. Lisa and I laugh about it all the time. I wish you could have met Tony and Gage. I know you would have loved them as much as I do. Tony is everything you ever wanted for me. Alexa Rae, well my goodness, she is so you. She talks about you ALL THE TIME. Saturday she spent the night with us. On the way to our house she told me "You know what Aunt". I said, "what Lexa." She said, "My Daddy in Heaven misses me". I said, "yes, he does" and to that she said, "And he loves me too". With tears streaming down my face I told her, "yes, he does baby, more than anyone on this earth". She never surprises us with the things she says. Like I said, She is so you! Momma tells me that all the time.

Watch over us all as always. We all still need you!

With all my heart, I love you always!

Chris, I think of you, along with my Mark, Pat and Terry, very often. I wonder sometimes what gets us through each day after losing such amazing people. I want you to know that your family is wonderful. Lisa is such a beautiful person, inside and out. You two were blessed.

Lisa, I think of you so often. I want you to know that I admire you for many different reasons. You are stronger than you'll every know. I am so sorry for the things you have had to endure. God will bless you ten fold for your perseverence. I love you....
