Hi my lovely,
Today was not such a great day. Unfortunately I'm left to handle all of the things you and I never got the chance to do. My heart breaks to tell u, Jessica drove away in ur car today. I know a car can be replaced but it was urs, so it hurt. There are several other issues I'm desperately trying to negotiate on ur behalf. I'm praying for strength and guidance. I love and miss u so very much. Send me a sign. I need to know ur in a good way!
All my heart & soul,
Rebecca

Hello beautiful! That was my favorite thing to hear u say besides when u would sing to me, "Mama loves her baby!" Right after leaving me a voicemail. I was even able to hang on to that voicemail alot longer than I expected. Oh how I'd give anything to hear u say that to me again. Ya know, u and I never went a day without speaking to each other. That's of course excluding the time we both held out for 2 weeks waiting for the other to call and apologize. And also, in case u don't remember... it was me that had to tuck my tail! If only u had taught me that no matter the age or situation, u would always be right! Lol. Every year on Gene's heavenly anniversary I post on his guest book. I wonder if it will allow me to post 365 in urs?! Well I just can't go to bed without out daily check in. Today was the first day since ur funeral that I got out of bed and out of my jammies. I know that is probably making u sad to see me like this, if you CAN see me! I had a nice cawfee tawk with Chanda today at the river walk. We were both pressed for time, but it was good to see her. Then even better than that... I finally took Paul & Kristen up on their 50th dinner invitation. Now it's way past Oliver's bedtime because he's just laying in his puppy bed next to ur nightstand, waiting for me to turn ur "yummy" as u called it, electric blanket and snuggle bug with his mama. I clearly am just a tolerable stand in for his original snuggle buddy! We (u & I) both knew he would miss his nana, but he seriously looks like he lost his best friend. Ur grandson had female company tonight and Oliver was way over in the corner of the couch near the window. Well when she came into the kitchen thru the garage just to use the restroom, he growled something fierce
Even when I sat next to him and she never came into the living room he just continued to growl!! Almost like he didn't want another female in his house. Well my lovely, I've run out of things to say that don't make me cry. I usually can't even say ur name without falling to pieces. I love you more than I can express. I was unsuccessful in negotiating with God on keeping u with me, but I hope I had success in showing my love for u while u were here. Nobody really has any idea that u & I lived a whole other life together before u met Gene. I can still remember when u were in nursing school and we hardly saw each other, u let me play hooky on Fridays every once in a blue moon, just to spend a whole day together!! So many memories Mother, nobody could ever understand. Tell that "handsome devil" as u referred to him, I love & miss him too. Dear Lord, please give me strength to get past this awful pain and void I'm my soul by reuniting my parents. They were robbed of their golden years together that they worked so hard to be able to enjoy!! AMEN! Till tomrw🤟💔

Oh my beautiful Mother,
I hope Dad was right there waiting for your arrival. I know the minute you arrived in Heaven you finally got your wings. Because you were an angel down here! You always did the right thing even when no one was looking. I know I will find my new normal. Mostly because you knew how broken I would be. And I also know that's why u fought so hard for so long. You were worried for me!! Even in your sickest moments, my well being always came first! Oliver misses u so much
All he & I do is lay together wrapped in ur heating blanket! He actually barked at me the other while eating an english muffin.... I forgot to save him the last bite. Like I said before, I will find my new normal but for now a sign that u were reunited with Dad would ease my soul. It wasn't your job to take care of ur adult children, but u did. Because once upon a time a mother didn't stop mothering just because her children were grown! I feel so unbelievably blessed to have shared a home with you for over 2 years!! We had such amazing conversations Mother. I can honestly say now that we left NOTHING unsaid. I never doubted how much you loved me, and I feel sure u knew my love for u!! Out of all our conversations regarding the after life we never picked a sign or some symbol letting me know ur ok. Mother I'm so sorry the last few years of ur life sucked. Losing Gene, ur home and ur health!! I know it did ur heart well to move back to the place you & Gene made a home. I know drive thru was never ur thing I will miss watching u enjoy the dickens out of Capt'n D's! I could go on and on but I know ur able to feel my heart even long distance!
With All My Heart,
Your Rebecca

I met Deb Cox in 1995. I had to have repairs do to my truck. Deb says don't stay at the repair shop, she came and pick me up. That was the beginning of Deb Cox being there for me. Deb was always there for me. I loved her so much. She was my 7th sister. Love you Deb, thanks for everything.
