by Pop & Mamma
Jim, I miss you so much. I see all that you loved here and remember you bought this house for us because it reminded you of Grand Island. The tiles you helped Pop put down were too cheap and some aren't sticking the way they should. Pop removed the pond and now there's a great hole where it was. I remember you put the rocks in place for the waterfall and I hated to lose that!
Then there is the camper that you and Pop washed. Just as you left it on our driveway. When that is pulled out of here , it will be a sad day. The weeds are getting bad too and I remember you with that weed killer spray. You were so good about washing the house when it needed it and it is showing the dirt and damp of winter but you are't here to do that either.
Adrienne and Jessie will be here for Easter to eat with Pop, Colleen and myself. I try to have them here as much as I can since you passed away. You know all this but it helps to write to you.
My heart is so heavy for the sight of you and I save every picture that I can. But you are still with us and we sense your presence all the time. Keep making the sounds that we know are you or Rob. It helps to let us know you are still here.
I cry out of my lonliness for you but I have to remember you are closer in death than you were in life. Tell everyone there that I still love them and memories come to me daily. Goodnite my sweet sons....Mamma
