Hi, Buddy. Really long time no "talk" in this space (I talk to you every day & ask the Lord to watch over you). I miss you more and more each day. I look at your happy pictures with a happy smile. I'm really getting slow in doing things and moving around. It takes me forever to get something done. Somebody took away the cross, the father and son sign, Cain's little placard , Helen"s brother stone and your picture.

4-4-18 Hi J.R.,
well, Helen, Cain, & I went to visit you on Easter Sunday.(Another holiday without you or your girls).We got some new decorations for your site. Helen put a Brother stone heart and Cain put a little ceramic saying in the ground with his name on the back and I put a Father and a Son floral arrangement up. I pray the Lord will help ease the pain of missing you and turn into the joy of happy memories.

Going to bring new decoration on April 1. J.R.,J.R., J.R, I miss you so very much. I keep wanting to ask you computer questions, basketball questions, Black Hawk questions, and so many more.

Well, it's 2-20-18. Haven't written you lately because I have some medical issues. I haven't even had a chance to visit your site. God, I hope it's true that you are at peace and all your tossing, pain , and grief are over, it's the only consolation I have. I miss you terribly. Many a time I have picked up the phone to call you. I don't know if you can but please watch over Delaney, Dani, Helen, & Cain (me too). I still can't believe you are gone. My heart aches for you my beloved son. FhYVd


I love you and miss you something unbearable. God, I hope it's true that you are at peace with no more turmoil, grief, or unrest.

Hi, my's 1/2/18/ Can't wish you happy new year' cuz you won't see another new year. This is my Facebook with you.

All the prayers and consolation refrains say you are happy . J.R. give me a sign, let me know you are happy.

Oh my J.R., I miss you something awful. I just can't believe you are gone, I can't! It's the day after Christmas. No J.R. at Wagner Christmas gathering, no J.R. Christmas morning, no J.R. for Chinese food. No J.R......oh, how I miss you. I hope you are watching very closely over your girls. I'm worried about them. They are not in contact with me or Helen. I know you didn't want to leave your girls so take care of them.

Well, Turkey Day has passed. Didn't cook a bird this year, couldn't do it without you being here. We went to Michel's. Just need to cook my own bird. The rushing, stressful Christmas season is in full swing, glad you don't have to worry about it. Guess it's time to tell you that I haven't seen your beautiful daughters since you left us. No site, phone, text, NOTHING, It was weird making Christmas list, all of sudden you and girls

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
