    My Mother,my best friend. I will forever miss your beautiful face ,your loving touch. I will miss your sweet kisses and the hugs that you always gave me. How am I ever going to go on without you,seeing you smile and hearing your laughter. If I had to chose a Mother it would have been you. God gave me the best Mother in the world. You always told everyone that you were lucky to have me as a daughter, but Mom I was the lucky one! You were my life and I will always have an empty space in my heart now that you are not here with me.My life will never be the same again. Oh, what I would give just to hear you say that you love me again and tell me to be careful going to work. I love you ma,I’ll miss you for the rest of my life. I will miss and love you till we are together again.

    Dear Cousin Beatty;
    I am so glad we had our most recent telephone conversation. I never dreamed that it would be our last. You sounded great and your laugh ALWAYS made me laugh even harder. I remember as a kid that even when you were very happy and /or excited, you would cry. I came to understand that was yet another expression of your deeply sensitive, caring and loving spirit. Although I am extremely saddened that I will not see you “in person” when I come home soon yet, I feel deeply connected with your spirit and I have WONDERFUL memories that will live on throughout my lifetime. Every night when Luca says his prayers, he says “I Love You, Cousin Beatty” and I KNOW you hear him. When you have a chance please be sure to give my mother a BIG hug and kiss for us too. When I get home, I’m going to see if I can get Donna to make “golumkies”. You might have to help! I LOVE YOU, Cousin Beatty and don’t worry, I will help look out for your Donna.

    Love Always;
    Cousin Patty
