Still missing you, more as each day goes by.... if that's possible.. Thomas and I will never be the same without you... I hope and pray we will both be with you again some day.. Each day is harder than the next without you.. I miss your smile, I miss your hugs, I miss your "I love you too, mom..", I miss your sense of humor, miss making fun of your dad, miss picking you up with Shane for the weekend, miss you sitting in your chair at the computer, miss Thomas saying, "I can't wait to show this to Austin!!", miss the smell of your hair, miss the way you would tease Thomas and NEVER let him use your computer, miss you talking about the "Oompa Loompas", miss the way we laughed a couple years ago when I gave you the G.I. Joe for Christmas, Miss the way you let Abbey lick you all over the face without making her get down, miss the way you always hugged grandma... Miss your flip flops in the winter, miss your cute sense of style.. Mr. Abercrombie n Hollister, lol.. miss EVERY THING ABOUT YOU and the fact that we will never have another holiday or birthday together.. Always remember I love you... mom.. And know that Thomas loved you, you were his hero and I hope the two of you will one day be together again.. ~ Joyce Coulter, Wildwood, Missouri |Contact Me
