The amount of support I have received from everyone has been so wonderful. I never imagined how much comfort someone can receive by a simple card, note, phone call or even a hug. I will never forget to do that for someone else.

My kit n' kaboodles girls are just fantastic. They have been so supportive and understanding during this time. Thank you ladies.

My clients have been AMAZING. I have had people stop by to wish me well and give hugs. I get several cards a day and each one I open has wonderful words of encouragement. Thank you

My friends. You guys flippen ROCK. My friends friends from the area not only came to the memorial but they have called me and sent cards. My friend Heather took time one evening last week to just hold me. I felt so much better when she left. Thank you! and thanks to heather and Sherry for coming to my office yesterday so I wouldn't have to be here alone at the beginning of my day. How terribly sweet of you!!! LOVE YOU BUNCHES

To Sarah. You are the truest friend. I love you so much. Thank you for coming to be with me and helping me at the memorial. You were my rock and just the fact that you were there, a comfortable person who has always been there, means so very much to me. I love you.

And my family. I love you all so very very much. All my aunts and uncles and cousins who came and supported me and my brothers and sister, I thank you from the bottom of my heart. For caring for us and being the family that you are.

My mom, I know that you being here was the first thought in my mind. Knowing that it would be even harder for me when you left i am glad you didn't. I know that soon in the future we will be together, and closer than ever. I love you.

Thank you to my mother in law who drove two hours with HER mother (love you Grammy), and a very pregnant sister in law to help me and my kids cope.

My ex. Who knew. He was so helpful. He CAME to the memorial and helped with the boys when they needed him and even had some wonderful things to say about my father. Thanks.

LaRee and Harold. You are two of the most caring people I know. You are here for me now in the office and were there for us during the memorial. Harold gave our family prayer and the opening prayer at the service. They helped with food. They brought food enough to feed everyone at my house. Their daughter Jessica brought food and actually just dropped off FROZEN meals for my family. Amazing family you guys have. Thank you from the bottom of my heart.

There are just too many people out there who have helped me through this. I love you all.



  1. You only have great friends because YOU are a great friend.
    I can only imagine how proud your father is that you are who you are.
    Peace to you. Just peace, for now.

  2. Thanks for the message. Wish I was there to do more for you. I have made 24 cards for you...if that isn't enough, let me know. I'm just waiting for our stamp order to get here, and then I'll send them all. Thought it would be here today, but I guess there was another snag. Maybe tomorrow. Love you!

  3. What a great testament about your father also, that all those people came to help. Hugs to you. Love abounds.

  4. YOu are loved and missed here. Having lost my mother 9 years ago, I know what a large gap the loss must have left in your life. We are here (though far away physically) to help in any way. Know you are loved!
