Hi, Baby,
Well it's Thanksgiving, first holiday without you. It is painful. I can't save you the turkey skin cuz it's the first time I'm not cooking a turkey in 50 years. You're not here to enjoy it. Put a little glass pumpkin with your Christmas wreath by your site.Words can't express how much I miss you. All the literature says you home and your pain and grief and restless tossing is over. It's just that I can't grasp that your gone. I love you J.R. Don't forget us.Z

Well, I guess this is our Facebook. In a few hours it will be 2 months since you left me. J.R. I miss you something awful. I visit your site every week and trying to figure out if real flowers or fake flowers should be in your holder. I have your picture in the box.

Well, my J.R. it's been 18 days since you left me. . I cry everyday, mostly all day. I cannot believe you are gone. Helen says you are at peace, God, I hope so. I just can't wrap your being gone around my head. I put a little memorial planter by you r cemetery site and brought you a fresh flower from my garden yesterday. I love you so much. May the peace of the Lord fill you up. You are a good person and always was. Love

I honestly was shocked to hear about Larry passing. Words can not describe how deeply saddened to know my good friend is no longer here. We did some wild and crazy things when I was going through my battle ( cancer). All I can say is that he will be missed and my thoughts and prayers are with his Wife Diane, his kids, his Mom and sister Helen. RIP MY GREAT FRIEND. YOU WILL BE MISSED BY MANY1
