Mother's Day

With "my girls" 2004, Washington DC - after going to the White House for the Egg Roll

I miss my dad too. Here he is, about 2nd grade, on Mother's Day with his grandmas, 1949 (Isn't he so cute?!)

My last Mother's Day card from precious Christi.
I miss you sweetie. This time of year is so hard. I can't believe your 12th birthday would be on Tuesday. It's been a very rough, emotional week, sweetie. I went through many of your things and put them in storage. I know the most important things in life are not things, but it's all I have left of you sweetpea, and I found myself clinging to your "stuff". Daddy said, "What possessed you to put that away now? You're braver than I am."
I really can't believe you were only 8 years old when you drew this for me. Your talent was so far beyond your years. May you be having a wonderful day in Heaven, because right now I just want to be with you so bad. I put the last of your things in a plastic tub this week. It all just stinks. Why you? Why not me?! Daddy misses you to pieces too! May God somehow help me through what I know will be a very trying week. I can only imagine how grand we would have made your 12th birthday, if only you would have made it. Please tell God to make your birthday in Heaven grandiose because I can't handle the thought of anything less for you.

Happy Mother's Day, Angela - Christi will be so close on that special day for moms and especially on her birthday - not to worry - God always makes it great! I don't sign often enough - I hope Shayla is adjusting to school and if she has a bad day, just remember, Shayla - If you need to make a bad day a great day...HUG YOUR HORSE! It works. Christi people you never, ever knew on this Earth miss you and your brilliance. Happy Birthday, Beautiful Christi.

When I look for heroes to hold high, your daughter Christi is tops. When I read of the treatment, set-backs and associated pain beautiful Christi endured I am amazed at not only her courage and strength, but of her family as well. I will carry her with me in spirt as I run ever holding her high for all to see.

I make Angel Christi and you her family this promise:

I shall continue to run until the cure is found. If I become too old or weak to continue on I will ask our Heavenly Father to carry me onward to the finish line - a cure.

God Bless
May He hold you gently in His arms of Love
