Dear Mom, I tried calling you today on accident to tell you how my first day in a fantastic new company was and for a minute or two waited to hear your lovely voice answer. Then I realized in the haze of my pre-dawn sleepiness you were not going to answer and never thought this day would come. Nichole and I love you forever and I'm not sure when it will dawn on me I can't just call you anymore. You are on always on my mind. Our love transcends physical bodies and I know I'll see you and dad again someday in heaven. You would be proud of my little girl Nichole even though she is not so little anymore and now 16 years old and driving a car! I'll try to be strong, remembering the happy times (and plenty of funny) and instill in my daughter what you have taught and showed me in love, faith and hope. You were the strongest person I know and emulate all you were in your life to us 7 children. Always adored. Never forgotten. Love your "baby", And your baby's baby. Tess and Nichole a��i��

Aunt Marie was always there for us. She always invited us into her house with open arms. After a while you begin to think this is how it will always be. Until now. I just wanted to thank her for all of the time we spent with her and the family. We all learned to enjoy our extended family. Aunt Marie, if you can hear us (or still read e-mail) - Thanks!
