Thank You All

Hello, I'm just sitting here sobbing and reading all your kind messages. I am touched that she impacted so many lives. You guys even have a memorial for her already and we haven't even been able to catch our breath. We are all just in shock as I'm sure you are all too. We all spent the day together crying and making arrangements. It all just doesn't seem real. I feel I will pick up the phone and call and she will answer. I don't know if she ever told you all about the signs we got from my grandmother (her mother), but she always let us know she was watching over us. My sister saw a shooting star on her way home tonight...there is our sign. Her life was too short, and I hope she serves as an inspiration to take care of yourself. She had so many things she should have been able to do...she should have gone to the zoo with her grandkids and walked the entire way. She should have gone with them to Disney. She should have travelled with my dad and spent her days dancing with him as much as she wanted. She should be there tomorrow when I want to pick up the phone at 11am to call and gossip. I know it is difficult to do, but take care of yourselves...she would want you all to live the lives you should.

I am truly sorry, Lee Ann. Your mother was a wonderful human being, one of the best that I've ever had the pleasure of communicating with. I will miss her.

I am so very srry for your loss. I am glad to see though that you know your mom is always with you and are open to the signs she has sent and will continue to send you. We do not know what is out there for us but there are certain loves that never leave you, ever. A part of them is always there. I lost my granny who I was very close to in July. And I can truly say she is with me everyday. I know it, I feel it, I am certain of it. Your mom will never leave you. My deepest sympathies to you and your family. Debra
