During this Christmas season you are forever on my mind. Family and friends have been talking about you quite a bit. Nothing brings me more pleasure than to hear about your little antics when you were younger. You were a true miracle and I am proud to be your Mom. I’m looking forward to the new year so that I can begin doing some of the things that we had discussed. Your dreams are inside of me too, I will never forget them. I love you Son. Love, Mom

Another Thanksgiving is amongst us again. I can’t believe the year has gone by so quickly. Keeping with our tradition I was at our usual meeting place today saying special prayers and feeling close to you. I miss you son so much, and you are always in the forefront of my mind. As I stood in the cemetery noticing how barren the trees look without there leaves I thought how poignant my heart feels barren without you here beside me. I love you son always. You were my dream come true. Love, Mom

My Dear Son,
I love you so much. On we know the kind of relationship that we had, late night talks about everything yet nothing. I miss your teasing and the bass of your laughter. The simple things seem to stand out in my mind. Things that I love to stare at, for example; your eyebrows and the whiteness of your teeth. I long for you daily just to catch a sent of your essences would do my heart wonders. I want nothing more than to hold you close in my arms. This time of year only sadden me because I lost the most precious gift bestowed to me. You are forever in my heart. Love,Mom

Waddell, Marking your third year anniversary on this August 23rd. only saddened my heart. I thought with time that these anniversary dates would become more endurable. How wrong I was, my heart is burden and more heavy with grief than ever before. I guess that goes to prove that their are no substitutes for the real thing. Only joy will come once we are reunited. The understanding of why the good go young will be a source of contentment. I love you son and I’m always humbly grateful that you were a part of my life. You Waddell made my life whole, I loved nothing more than being your Mom. You son are forever in my heart. Love, Mom
03 August, 2001
The passage of time has not made me think of you less often. I can still hear your voice and your laughter. I can still see your handsome face. You were a shining light while you were here on earth — to your family, to your friends, and to all who met you. I love you and miss you very much.
23 July, 2001
On this day July 23rd, one month before your three year anniversary my heart is so heavily burden with missing you. You are forever in my heart and in the forefront of the family’s mind. When I was at the cemetery today and crying so uncontrollably I felt your presents. At that precise moment a steady rain began to pour. We knew instinctively that it was you crying along with us. Our little family longing to be together again. Life certainly hasn’t been the same without you. I go on daily cause I wake up daily. You were such a major part of my life. I still miss that boyish smile of yours. I love you son. Love Mom

Happy Thanksgiving Son,
On this day your twenty-seventh month of departure, this holiday is still painful as ever to spend without you. I can’t help but to smile when I ask myself what do I have to be thankful about on this Thanksgiving Day which also marks your anniversary date. What immediately comes to mind is the thought of how grateful and truly blessed I am to have had you as a part of my life. You have taught me so much about loving and caring for others in your unique and special ways. I miss our long confabs and your bright sunny smile. Waddell you are always in the forefront of my mind and I carry you forever in my heart. Love Always, Your Mom
23 August, 2000
On this the second year that you made your transition it seems harder yet to accept that you are truly gone. I’ve spent just about everyday at the cemetery this month reminiscing about you & me and the closeness we’ve shared. That my son hasn’t changed. I still don’t want to believe that that you are never coming back to your mother’s arms. They are just not the same without you to hold. I only wish that we can once again be reunited. Life is just going through the motions without you. You are forever in my mind, heart, soul and spirit. Your essence is the fiber I rely on just to make it through the day. I love you son. Love, Mom

Hi Waddell. This is your cousin Jamere I miss and love you very much!!!!!
17 August, 2000
I love you Waddell: Aunt Shani Psalm 23: The Lord is my shepherd; I shall not want. He maketh me to lie down in green pastures: he leadeth me beside the still waters. He restoreth my soul: he leadeth me in the paths of righteousness for his name’s sake. Yea, though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I will fear no evil: ‘for thou art with me; thy rod and thy staff they comfort me. Thou preparest a table before me in the presence of mine enemies: thou annointest my head with oil; my cup runneth over. Surely goodness and mercy shall follow me all the days of my life; and I will dwell in the house of the Lord for ever.
15 August, 2000
Love and Peace: Aunt Shani

Happy Birthday Son,
Waddell, this would have been your twenty-fifth birthday. I miss you this year more than last. It is hard to phathom another year without you. You however, remain nestled in my heart. I’m grateful for the timed we shared, but I shelfishly wanted more. It breaks a mother’s heart to loose a son that she loves so much. I still wish for a speedy reuniting for us. You have brought me such joy and my life hasn’t been the same without you. All my thoughts focus around you. I LOVE YOU SON!!! Love, Mom

As we enter this Easter Sunday you are forever on my mind. As you mark your twentieth month of transition, I couldn’t help but notice it is on Easter Sunday. This is the same day the bible says Jesus ascended into heaven. I think of you constantly and my arms ache to hold you. It is still hard for me to conceive that you are truly gone. You will however never be gone from my heart.
03 April, 2000
I finally found the website and I am so happy. I can now leave you notes and such without someone moving them or leave you flowers without someone throwing them around. I still miss you SO MUCH. It is hard to beleive it will be 2 years in August. It doesn’t seem that long ago to me. I have good days, bad days but mostly I have okay days. I wish I could help your mother. She has helped me more than she knows. talking to her helps me although I do not think I return that. But I do hope I help at least a little. I Love You, JAY!!!!!!!
I Love You, Always,

As we enter into this new holiday season, my heart grieves for you today more than ever. I know we made a promise that no matter where we were in life that we would always spend Thanksgiving together. I think of you everyday, but especially today. I really don’t feel like I have a lot to be Thankful for but I am grateful for the twenty-three years we shared. I’ll see you at the cemetery so that we will spend our Thanksgiving together as promised. I tried so hard not to cry today, I suppose I’m not strong enough yet. I love you son. Love always, Mom
23 August, 1999
Today marks one year since you made your transition. It is difficult to believe a year has passed by so quickly. You are forever in my heart and prayers Exactly one year today you made your transition. You have touched and changed the lives of many. I have talked with many people who have shared how you touched their lives so profoundly. You are a good son (Jay.) You have been a mother’s dream come true. You were always loved and always wanted. That’s why it is difficult to understand why you had to leave so soon. I do believe that one day we will all be reunited. I live for that day. I also believe that mom has taken you under her wings. You are greatly loved and missed son, I do believe that you are in heaven. Until we meet again and are united as one you will remain forever in my heart. Love, Mom
22 August, 1999
Waddell, on this the first anniversary of the day you said good-bye for the final time, I find myself thinking about you, about the joy you brought those of us who loved you, and it warms my heart.

All that has happen in this pass year seems so unreal. My constant prayer is to be able to join you. I still want to look out for you, comfort, and care for you. I want you to always know that you are dearly loved. Forever in my heart, Mom

I still can’t help praying for your well-being and safety. I love you son. Mom
