It has been a year and still our eyes tear. You are missed each day in every way. The phone calls just to say hey. The special gifts that would make our day. Gathering 'round the table to eat. All the family would come over to meet. Shopping at your favorite store. Leaving late out the door. Ahhh memories...we wish we had more. Be with us in spirit and talk to us in our thoughts.
