We wish you were there with us. Mom says she tells you “Good night each night and she says she loves you. I made dinner for us and we 3 ate together tonight. We are thankful you have no more pain. It does not get easier without you. We look at pictures and talk about you everyday. We will forever do this! Will and Larry have continued to check on us.
