  7. Mommy, I miss you so much that I can’t breathe. I know that you are with Jesus, but it still hurts so much that living will never be the same without you. I try everyday to do my best, because that’s what you would have me do. It’s not easy… it will never be easy. But I will do what I have to do, because of the strength that the Lord gives me, and because .life goes on.. It will be a long time before my life will .go on.. I wouldn’t be here without you, and now I don’t think that I like being here without you. You were the only human being on God’s earth that loved me unconditionally, and there will never be anyone else to take your place. I miss you Mommy. Meliss

  12. Mom, would’nt you know that my watch stopped again three years to the day you went to be with the Lord? I am outside on my deck listening to the cardinal sing .mommy, mommy, mommy.. I heard it for the first time after you passed. I didn’t think anyone could hear it but me, but Faith and Jordan did too. It took three years to learn that it was the cardinal. God sent me the cardinal to mourn with me. Now when I hear it, it rejoices with me, because I know you’re Ok. And so am I. We’re moving back to MA very soon. Bree is married,and will come home from Afghanistan to take her vows in Nov. You would be proud. She married Matthew Fanelli, a wonderful man.And I know you would love him and his son Vinnie. The fact they are Italian should make you smile! Bree has something special planned at their wedding for you in memorium. I will come and visit where you and Dad are buried. But I know you are not there,but with the Lord. Say hi to Dad for me! Love you, Meliss.
