We miss you so much
07 October, 2003
Hi Sweet Pea!
I’ve enclosed a dozen of colorful balloons and a dozen of purple roses. I’m so sorry I haven’t written sooner. I didn’t realize that it’s been so long since we last talked. I hope you are doing well! I miss and love you so much. I think about you everyday and wonder what you are doing. I hope Papa Red, Grandpa Joe, and Uncle Butch have taken you fishing. VIckie and I went fishing last weekend on Brian’s boat and we had so much fun. I thought a lot about Papa Red and fishing with him. I sure did have a lot of fun with him; just as you are now. Vickie is doing well in bowling, she received a patch the other weekend for 120 series, she bowled a 122. I’m so proud of her. Please tell Papa about that. I know that he would be proud of her too. I wish he was here to help her like he did for me when I was bowling. Things here are going good. Vickie is doing really good in school, she made the Honor Roll with straight A’s. She’s finally made several new friends, they are really nice. She’s still into Barbie’s, Fashion Polly’s, bowling and now she really enjoys going fishing on the Bass boat. Grandma Jackie is not doing well, though. She has some good days, but not very many. Her eye sight not like it used to be and she now needs to have hip replacement; I’m not sure when or if she will go through with it. Time will tell. I hate seeing her in so much pain. I wish that I could fix her, but this time it’s out of my hands. It tears my heart to see her this way. And for Aunt Dee Dee……well I have a new job now and I really like it. It’s nice to go to work where every one is friendly and fun. I’m still a Medical Receptionist. You know Aunt Dee Dee, gotta love all that paper work…ha ha. I met this guy named Brian. He and I have been together since May 20th and we are doing great. He was 3 boys, Zachary who is 13, Christopher who is 12 and Ryan who is 8. They are all good kids. I really enjoy spending time with them, despite them being irritating. But what are boys for anyway. As for Brian…well he’s a really nice guy and a good person. I couldn’t ask for a better person. I really do love him. I find myself thinking about him all the time. I’m so happy when we are together and sad when we are apart. Hopefully within the next year he and I will be living together. Well, Pumpkin…..It’s getting late and you need your sleep. I will write soon. I love you very much and miss you lots too!!! Please give Papa Red a hug and a kiss for me and tell him that I love and miss him very much. Give my love to everyone. Love always and Forever, Aunt Dee Dee

Happy Birthday to you. Happy Birthday to you. Happy Birthday sweet Nicole. Happy Birthday to you. I wonder what you would be like. You would have been 5 today and starting Kindergarten this fall. Your sister Jessica is 3 now and you will be having another sibling in a few days. Are you enjoying your time with Papa Red? and Great Grandpa Joe and Great Grandpa George? Your Mother and I have been thinking a lot about you. We are thinking of using Nicole as a middle name if this baby becomes another sister of yours as a name sake. I hope you don’t mind and I’m sure that you don’t as you were and i sure still are always so happy. Oma, Papa Carlos, Jessica, Aunt Chris, Uncle Potatohead (Jimmy), Uncle Jay, Cousins Caitlyn and Jenna, Grandma, Aunt Debbie and Cousin Vicki all wish you a very Happy Birthday and have been thinking about you. Well I will write again as soon as I can because it’s getting late and I want you to get some rest.
Daddy, Mommy, Jessica and Baby.
P.S. I just wanted to wish you a very Happy Birthday Sweetheart. There isn’t a day that goes by that I don’t wish you were with us.

Hi there Sweet Pea. I can’t believe that it’s been so long since I last wrote you. I’m so sorry. I promise to write more often. I’m sending you a dozen pink roses and several pink and white balloons and 1 Red balloon to give to Papa. I hope all is going well for you. Things could be better here. I thought that Texas would be better that it is. I wished so much that I has stayed in Florida. I feel and I think I will always want to be in Florida. It’s my home and it will always be home to me. I’ve already told Grandma Jackie that once I get the money and once she gets to feeling better and can get around better I’m going back to Florida. I feel as if I don’t belong here in more ways then one. Since the last time that I talked with you there’s been so much going on. Vickie is know in 4th grade and it doing so well. She started bowling in September. She’s come along way in just 4 weeks. Vickie has this natural curve that she throws. I wish that Papa Red was here to see it. I wish that I could give her some tips, but I don’t know how to throw a curve ball. She has league on Saturdays and if I have the extra money, we go on Sunday to practice. I’m hoping by next fall my wrist is strong enough to start bowling on league again. I really miss bowling league. Vickie will bowl either the 2nd or 3rd week in Austin in competition. I know that she will do really well. I’ve never seen her more happier when she’s out there bowling. Grandma Jackie is doing good considering. She has been sick since Feb. of this year. Her eyes started giving her problems. She almost went blind. But luckily with the help of a very good and dedicated Doctor Grandma’s eyes are doing better. It’s a slow process, but she has come a long way. Grandma is still working at the golf course. She to likes the people that she works with, and also thinks the pay stinks. I’m doing OK. I’ve been with this new company since Dec. 2001. I do like the people that I work with. They are really cool people. The pay stinks here though. I hope you are looking after Dakota Puppy for me. I miss him very much. How is Papa Red doing? Good I hope. I wish that I could just see you and Papa and hold you one more time and tell you how much I miss and love you. There’s not a moment in each and everyday that I don’t think about you or Papa. I love you very much. Please give Papa a hug and a kiss for me Good Night Sweet Angel. Hugs and Kisses…..XOXOXOXOXOX’s
All My Love,
Aunt Debbie :o)

“Happy Birthday to you…..Happy Birthday to you, Happy Birthday dear NICOLE…..Happy Birthday to you.” (I have enclosed a dozen long stem purple roses and a huge balloon arrangement ……..you know Aunt Deb, gotta love them balloons.) It’s so hard to believe that you just turned 3. Just seems like yesterday that you Daddy called and said that you were born. Time is flying by. I wish that you could be here to celebrate. I miss you and love you so much. I really miss your smile. No matter what kind a day anyone had, you always smiled and made it better. I think of you often and wonder what you would be like. Jessie takes after both your Mommy and Daddy. She has Mommy’s attitude and she’s destructive just like your Daddy. Your Mommy, Jess, Vickie and I are starting to go bicycle riding now. Jess loves it, but then again why wouldn’t she, all she has to do is just sit there and enjoy the ride, while the rest of us has to EXERCISE (yuck). Are you taking care of Papa for me? Please tell him that I love him and miss him very much. I wish that he could be here. Oh, I received my Diploma from college a couple of weeks ago. I have it hanging above my desk. Grandma Jackie and I are starting to look for our own house. Wish us luck in finding a good house. Well, not much else is happening right. I’ll write you soon. Take care of yourself and everyone for me. Happy Birthday Sweetpea and don’t ever stop smiling. Love always and Forever, Aunt Debbie :o)

Hi Punkin Head…..
How are things going? Good I hope. I hope you and Papa got the balloon that I sent you on Valentine’s Day. Grandma Jackie and I watched the balloon go up, up, up, and way up, until we couldn’t see it anymore. I’ve sent you and Papa a dozen of red roses. I love you guys very much. Are you taking good care of Papa Red for me? Would you please tell Papa that I miss him very much. Things here are going OK. It’s been real hard, but I’m managing it slowly. I take one day at a time. I wish that you and Papa were here, but I understand that God needed the both of you. Jessica is doing very good. It’s hard to believe that your sister is already 8 and 1/2 months old. Jessica’s very thing to do is dance. Your Mommy has named her the hula girl. She’s got a mean set of hips on her..Ha Ha. Oh guess what, Vickie starts soccer next week. So look for her. You can’t miss her, just listen for Jessica laughing. She thinks it’s funny to watch Vickie jump around. I’ll talk with you soon. I love you. I’ve also sent a really, really big, big hug. Love always and Forever, Aunt Deb :o)

I’ve been thinking a lot about you. I’ve sent you a pretty pink, yellow and red pointsetta. I’ve also enclose a big hug and kiss for you from me. I miss you very much. Grandma, Vickie and I have moved in with your Daddy and Mommy. We thought things would be better if we come out to Texas, since Grandpa Red is with you now. Nicole, you would be so proud of your little sister. She’s so beautiful, just like you. She was a lot of you in her, but of course with her own traits. I know that you are watching over her. Anyway, I bet you had a great Christmas with Grandpa Red, Aunt Marie, Uncle Butch, and all your Great Grandparents and all the little friends that you have made. Did Grandpa Red take you fishing yet???? Make sure that he baits your hook. He always did that for me. I bet you can con Uncle Butch into taking the fish of your hook. I’ve been giving a lot thought about bring Grandpa Red out here. I know that he will like it here, with all the trees, hills, creeks, and all the animals. It would probably remind him of home. The more I thought about it, the more I think Grandpa would be happier there with his son, Mommy, Sister and with Great Grandma and Grandpa Bork. Please give Grandpa Red and hug and a kiss from me and tell him that I miss him very much. There’s not a day that goes by that I don’t think about him. I hope you have fun on New Year’s Eve, with all the fireworks. That was Grandpa Red’s and my favorite thing to do. Take care of everyone for me.
Love always and Forever,
Keep Smiling, :o)

Hey punky girl. I have visted before but have been unable to leave you flowers. I have really missed you and so has your father. I have watched your cousin Caitlyn and it makes me wonder what you would be like. But you had your own personality. Your sister is sweet just like you but your daddy and I still miss you very much and I hope you know this. Give your grandpa a kiss. We are leaving you a dozen pink roses and this reminds me and your daddy so much of you. Take care and we hope to have you home with us soon. XOXOXOXOXOXOXO.
Love your Mommy and Daddy.

Hi Sweet Pea,
It’s been a couple months. Grandma, Vickie and I were out to see you and Grandpa Red, Great Grandpa Joe, Great Grandma Florence, Great Granny, Uncle Butch, and Aunt Marie in August. Sorry that we were able to give you flowers. We didn’t have a ladder or the long hook to hand up your vase. So we gave Papa a little basket of flowers and told him that he had to share with you. I hope you are having a lot of fun playing. I miss you so much. I just wanted to send you a big ole hug and a kiss. And, since I couldn’t leave flowers to you at the cemetery, I wanted to leave you a dozen of pink roses. I’ve also enclosed a single yellow rose for Grandpa and a hug and kiss. Can you please give it to him for me? We all miss you and love you lots. Take care of everyone for me. Keep Smiling.
Love always, Aunt Debbie

My heart breaks for you.

Our little sweet angel.
In the short time you were with us you have touched so many hearts and lives. There are not enough words to describe the love that you have given. When the sun shines its brightest, the sky is baby blue and clear, when the birds sing their soft sweet chirps and when the flowers have bloomed I know that you are looking down upon us and smiling your sweet smile. You will never be forgotten, for you will always be our pretty little angel. We love you Sweetpea!
With all our love,
Aunt Debbie and Victoria
