    My dear, dear Aunt Betty…I am thinking of you on your 88th birthday. I love you very much and am so blessed to have had you in my life. I really dont know what I would have done without you. I know you are looking down upon all of us, shaking your head, and saying ‘nobody else would put up with it!’

    I love and miss you with all my heart…

    I am thinking of you every second of every day. I love and miss you more than words can say. The way you impacted everyone you knew is truly an inspiration for us all. Thanksgiving was not and will never be the same without you. Happy birthday beautiful!

    Dear Mommy:

    I think of you and remember you every single day since you left us for a more peaceful place. Your birthday of course is also special and will never be forgotten. It was a much different Thanksgiving this year and I was anxious over how I would deal with not having you with us and not having birthday cake along with our pies. Well, hard as it feels somedays, we do move forward, the torch was passed to your grandaughter Callie this year and she would have made you as proud as she made me. She even passed your stuffing test with flying colors! You must have been looking over her shoulder and directing her as you did with me. I’m grateful this year that you are with your mother and dad, my wonderful dad, and Bob’s also. Our Oreo had to leave us the day before Thanksgiving and I hope she’s with you. I am grateful this year that my life is progressing in a peaceful and positive direction and that I have you and dad living with me. Your presence in my home helps me daily. I hope you both hear my prayers and feel my love and kisses which you receive each and every morning. I still wear our angel on a chain every day. There are many days that I still feel the need for my MOMMY HUG! I’m sending you one now and I know you’ll feel my love. Happy Birthday Mommy! Love you always, always my love. Your little girl, Janice P>S. Bob went to Ireland for his birthday and saw lots of rainbows. You must have sent them!
