Grandma was always good to me. I always felt welcomed and relaxed in her home. She was truly a wonderful and special human being with a tremendous heart. I loved her for so many reasons,mostly for accepting me into her family 20 years ago. She always made me feel special. I love you!! Frankie

You were so sick that I do feel a sense of peace because I know you are safe and finally Home!You are my best friend and I will carry you with me in my heart forever! It comforts me to know that Daddy, Jeffrey, your Mom and Dad and SAA and all your friends were there to meet you! Now you can dance again with Daddy! I love you, miss you and bless you every day! All my love,All my life, Kathleen.

Dear Mom , I just found your site on topix and I wrote another note too! I don't know where that went? Oh well, I just had to let you know that every day I get waves of grief and tears flow. Its hard not to be able to call and chat with you. I hope you can hold Jeff in your arms especially since he was there to bring you home. So many family members are there now and I hope you are there when we come home. In Gods house there are many palaces so I hope you find a nice one for all of us. I miss you and love you and forever in my heart. Love you Mom Ellen XXOO
