Miss You Mom!

Where does the time go? It has been 5 years since my mom passed away. I do wish she was still here. But, I know she's better off now. I'm sad that she's not here to see how well Crystal and I are doing in our lives. And what life has in store for us.

I am very thankful for the people that I have in my life. My beautiful wife Jill has been a solid rock in my life. I don't know what I would do without her.

Mom, I love you and I miss you very much!!

In Sept. I had the opportunity to fly to California to visit my uncle who was not doing well. I was also able to visit all of my family including my aunt Gin.

On Nov. 25 I received a call to tell me that she had passed away. Even though my mom and aunt Gin were not sisters, they were just as close. As I grew up, the whole family callad her Aunt Gin. To me, she was like a mom. I love her very much and will miss her even more.

On Dec. 27 my aunt Jewell called to let me know that uncle Henry had passed away. For a good part of my life, my uncle Henry had lived with my family. He was shell shocked from the war. I never really understood what he was saying most of the time. I remember going over to my great grandmother`s house when I was about 13yr. and me, My dad, uncle Richard and my uncle Henry would go out to the back yard and play horseshoes.

Aunt Gin, Uncle Henry you are loved and you will be missed!
