Diane, I am visiting with Mom so I figured I would hop on here and tell you that Donnie and I miss you very much. The kids are doing well. Trin is excelling at school, and Abby can say anything. She can say "Donnie" now. He says, "No, I DADDY". I just laugh at him. She can also say her name, "I ABBY" and "Pone" (phone), and she can talk in complete sentences. That baby tickles me death. She knows she's in trouble when I say her whole name, I'll say, "Gabriel Ladonn Diane", and she'll got to scatting. It's funny. I try not to laugh in front of her, if she sees me I know she won't take me seriously anymore. She already will burp over and over again, just to get a laugh out of me and Trin. She's a sight. You would be so proud. ;D ;D ;D ;D ;D Diane, I am trying to help Donnie the best ways I know how. Your death has affected him deeply, and sometimes, when he cries, I don't know what to do for him. I talk to him, and try my best, I hold him, and listen, but sometimes nothing helps. I would like to think that heaven is real.......that you are there, so at this time, I am gonna continue to think of it that way, although, I have my doubts. I wanna believe Diane, but in these days, it is hard, with all of the evil that goes on. I spend a lot of time alone thinking about it while Abby sleeps of the day, about Heaven and Jesus and whatnot. Iris tries to get me to go to church with her, I agreed once, but they called church off that night. I don't know if I'll go back or not. I love you Diane, always, always, remember that.
Diane, Donnie had a hard time last night. He went out in the middle of the night and was standing at your grave, weeping. He is having a very hard time, I am trying so hard to help him but I don't think anything I do touches the pain. He is so miserable. I wish I could take all of the hurt away. Images of you keeps me awake of the night, all I do is think about it. I detest cancer. I saw Larry today, he is looking better. Looks like he's put on a little weight, he was looking like he was gonna fly away there for awhile. God bless his heart, he loves you so. Iris says that the Bible states that Jesus has your tears in heaven bottled up as diamonds, if that is true, then you could pave the streets up there with mine. I love you Diane, I only wish I could of saved you. I would of given my own life to save yours if I just could of. To see him cry the way he does, it is taring my heart out. I would love to be able to give you back to him, in fine shape, with that cigerette in hand, and the diet pepsi in the other, mouthing off at him. That would make him so happy. That would make Me so happy! But you are gone now........and that's the hardest thing to swallow.
Hey there mom, Just wanted to let you know that Amy made it. Shes done and she said that all that hard work was for you. There is nothing more i would have wanted than for you to be able to see her get that pin. But i know that you were there. I could feel you. Amy had those ear rings in that you gave her and she said that was the only way that she passed that final. And she wore them when she got pined. You should have seen her rubbing them lol. You told her if she ever needed you to rub them. Her ears were red she was rubbing them so hard. After it was all over i looked at her and told her that you would be proud of her. It took everything in me to stop from crying but i done it. We were all talking about you last night. We had her a little party. We all talked about how we missed you. I sit and told manda how everything happend right before you passed away. About how you were breathing and things like that. She misses you alot to. But what can i say we all miss you. Me,amy,and manda got all the decorations on the tree. It is so pretty. I know that you would love it. We only cried one time as we were putting it up thinking about you. We almost got all the presents bought. all that we like is a few on joeys side and donnie and latona. Then we will be done. I am doing my best to keep the christmas spirit alive. You loved christmas so much. and i know in my heart you would want us to do everything we can to keep in the christmas mood. You would play those christmas cds that you had allllllllllllll day and night just to try and keep us in the mood. So thats what i am trying to do amoung everyone else. We are going to cook agin down here cause i know that is how you would want it. I am trying to do everything that i think you would want. I know how important it was to you to have everyone here for christmas so that is what i am going to try and do. I gave you a good Christmas last year and the only thing that i can do this year is try and make you proud. And try to do everything as you would. I am going to try and find a little something to go on your grave. Maybe a little christmas tree or something. I am not real sure on what to get but i will find something for you. But mom i have to go gotta work tomorrow. But i just want you to know that i love and miss you soooo much. And i'll see you tonight in my dreams. I Love you
Diane, I have tossed and turned, trying to go to sleep, but it's 5 am now and I decided to just get up and quit trying. The day is gonna be hard, cause I know Abby won't go back to bed with me when I get back from taking Trin to school. I had the hardest time in the world getting her to go to bed last night. She was bouncing off the walls. At first I tried to put her in bed with me, but she kept getting out, so I put here in her in the crib, and she just stood up and jabbered. She would sing a lot, mostly that Barney stuff, I kept whispering, "Sleepy Sleepy, Night Night" to her, but that just encouraged her to jabber more it seemed. Finally after 2 hours of begging, she went to sleep, and then I couldn't go to sleep. I just kept thinking about you. I wish you could be here to see these girls grow up. Trin misses you badly, and talks about you often. I guess it is a blessing I got pregnant so young, God was working things out for you, so you could experience being a grandmother, he knew your time was short. You babied Trin to death, and now, you are gone, and she doesn't have anybody to do that for her no more. When Larry came in yesterday, Abby sure took a fit over him. She did not want him out of her site. I think she knows he is hurting, it's something that she senses, and she's crazy over him anyways. Me and Donnie are looking at some houses. We are hoping to leave by next summer if everything works out all right. I can't wait to get these girls a place where they can turn carwheels for miles. I just want them to be happy and I know, you'll be happy for them. Everywhere I go, don't matter if I move to 10 buck 2, I will always have you with me, you will always be in our hearts. I don't know, if we'll ever get over losing you Diane.
Just wanted to tell you that I love ya Diane, as long as I live, I will think of you each and every day. There is always something that reminds me of you. I was just using your fav. fabric softener, got me thinking about you, how picky you was over things like that. How you was allergic to just about everything, how you loved White Diamonds and only White Diamonds. Everything else smelled to you. ;D You were a site over things like that. I miss you calling and saying for me to come down, that you had this and that fixed, or that you needed me to come down to help you decorate your room or fix some green beans one. You sure didn't like my pressure cooker! he he But you liked the fact it cooked green beans really quick! he he I sure do love you, I may not be the type to always show it, but that is just me, but I know that you knew it. Good nite Diane.....I love you.
Diane, I don't know if you what happened yesterday was a coincidence, God, or you, but in any respect it ran chills all over me. "Ninny's little baby like shortening shortening, ninny's little baby likes shortening bread". I cried all the way home, I was so happy. One of Leroy's neaces got killed last night, he is beside himself. I hope they can find the strength to make it through this, they sure have been through a lot this year. Colwell family, my thoughts are with you. I don't know if they want anyone to know yet, cause they are trying to contact family members that don't know yet, that was close to her, so I will not post her name. It seems there is a lot of death surrounding me this christmas season, it sure doesn't help to put you in the christmas spirit. Diane, if heaven is real, and you go there imediately after death, then I know you are there, please take care of his neace.
Here is what it says on WYMT about Bridgitte, I think she is around 29 years old, she was always a grade behind me, she went to Dennis Wooton and then to MC Napier. She has a sister named Heather. Her parents are Barb and AB. She has one little girl that I know of. God bless her family in this trying time. Guests cannot post a new thread so I don't think Diane will mind sharing, but Mods if you don't mind, please post a new thread for this girl, many people thought a lot of her. She has been moved away for awhile Rest in Peace. She is gonna be here, in Hazard, for those who want to know. Prayers for my step dad Leroy, and her family AB, Barb, Heather, her child, and all else who loved her would be much appreciated.
A four-vehicle crash on the Bluegrass Parkway in Anderson County early Saturday left one dead.
Police say Jarrod Ambergey hit the guardrail just after midnight. His passenger, Bridget Colwell, was thrown from the vehicle.
The driver lived but the woman thrown from the car died. A second car swerved to avoid her, and hit the guardrail. A third and fourth vehicle then crashed.
Hey mom, just wanted to write you real quick note and tell you that i love you and miss you. I wished i knew what you were trying to tell me today. Maybe if you leave just one more clue i'll figure it out. but dont do anything that will freak me out to bad LOL. I talk to Kay tonight.. She said that she missed you and that sissy talked about you alot. But everyone is fine. Just wanted to say that i love you and miss you. I will write you later. I love you mom and miss you more and more everyday
Diane, Christmas is just about over, thank God. I will be glad to be rid of it. It seems like all you hear is one tale of death after another this year. These families that are losing their loved ones, all they are gonna have to think about on christmas is that loved one, how they are not here anymore, and just grieve. It is all too sad. Yes, I'm up once again, all night. I believe I got a small case of the stomach virus, so sleep has been out of the question. Felt yesterday's dinner trying to come up on me all night. Mom had it the other day, that's probably where I got it. Your plants are doing well, I got them in the jacuzzi so they can get the sunlight from the sunroof window. Makes it look it a tropical hot tub. ha ha Which, anything "tropical" related reminds me of you. You sure did love the warm places. I hope to get to take Abby this year. It will funny to see how she reacts to the ocean. I know anybody that I ever took with me before that hadn't seen it, went wild. Boy, Donnie goes wild doesn't he? He walked us to death that time trying to find that mall and it was like 10 miles away! You griped at him and told him that he had put blisters on my feet! I don't know how he does that, drive all night nonstop, and then get down there and go nuts. It's like he's scared to death he's gonna miss out on something. Me, I just go to bed, it'll be there when I wake up. he he I wish you could be there when Abby goes, I know that would just tickle you to death. I can see you right now out there in the sand, making castles with her and Trin. Getting on the lazy river, riding around and around with Abby in your lap, just laughing, and now, that is all took away, it's all gone. I am going to cook for your fruit loop son for christmas. He's been saying the funnies things lately, but I wouldn't know where he got that from?
Hi Diane I know I haven't written you in a while. I've read the pages everyday though. I just wanted to get on here and tell you I loved and missed you. And Merry Christmas! I know how much you loved Christmas. Your house was always full of Christmas cheer (and music) I know you're up there in Heaven looking down on everyone and you'll be there with them when they celebrate Christmas. They all love you so much. Well, I better go. I love you Diane.
Hey mom i just wanted to tell you that one of my very good friends Patrick. Well his dad died a few days ago. I know how he feels. So if you meet his dad up there in heaven tell him i am doing my best to comfort patrick. Its going to be very hard on the both of us the next few days. But with his dad watching over him and you here with me i think that we will be able to make it. Marry christmas eve mom. I am going to miss you very much on this day. It was your favorite time of year. I wished i could have spent just one more with you. But it wasnt ment to be. But i have you in my heart. With every present that i unwrap and everyone that i wrap i will think of you. I love you mom and miss you. I'll be back tomorrow to talk to you. I Love you and miss you. and merry christmas eve agin
Hey mom. I just wanted to let you know that everyone here had a good christmas. You were missed very much. It took everything in me but i made it through the day. I only cried twice i think. Everyone did there best to try and keep my mind off of things. I am glad i have the friends that i do. I am very lucky. I hope that you had a good christmas in heaven. I know that you did. You probably started singing christmas songs the day after thanksgiving. lol. You got to spend christmas with many ppl that you hadnt got in see in many years. I wished that you could have been here. between donnie,jerry,latona,maggie,me and joey we done the best we could present wise with everyone and each other. Its the thought that counts anyways. I hope to be able to buy more things next year for everyone. Maybe i'll try and do what you did. Start in january lol. everyone would have all kinds of things then. But mom i have to head off to work. I just wanted to write and tell about chirstmas. I love you mom and i miss you so much.
Happy New Year Mom. I miss you. Just wanted to let you know everyone had a fun and safe new year. I thought about you just as soon as the ball dropped. I dont know if i can make it through a year without you mom. I miss you like crazy. Its going to be so hard. But i promise i am going to try my best to make you proud of me. Kay has her new house now.. She gets to start moving in it tomorrow. Shes alot closer to us now. She just lives at the airport. So thats a good thing. But mom i just wanted to get on here to talk to you for a few. Let you know that i still think of you everyday. I am going to go for now. But i'll be back soon. I love you and miss you
Diane, It is going to be hard to starting this new year, it just doesn't seem right without you. Some days are better than others, when I can think about you doing crazy stuff, it helps me to laugh instead of cry. I can't fathom the words to describe how much you are missed Diane. Christmas is finally over. I am glad to see it go, although there wasn't as much stress this year cause I let of lot of stuff go, like the christmas tree thing, and the dinner thing. I made some candy though and we opened presents on christmas eve and went out to eat christmas day, which is a lot better because it isn't so agravating. The babies are doing well. I hope that one of these days we can all be together again Diane, laughing and talking it up. I don't think there would be any kind of moral or "happy ending" to the story of Life, if there wasn't some hereafter. I don't know if I have what it takes to get there, but I hope I find it. I love you Diane, Donnie loves you, and Trinity and Abby do as well.
Hey mom. just wanted to let you know that i miss you so much and i still think about you everyday. School has started back. I really dont have much time for nothing now. Between that and work. I always have something to do. My classes are kinda hard this semester but i know that you'll help me through it. I hope that your still having the time of your life up there in heaven. But i gotta run for now. Gotta do some homework. I love you mom and miss you so much. I'll be back soon I love you
Diane, It's been two months now since you have left us and not a day goes by that I don't think about you. Everytime I hear certain songs I cry, and it don't even have to be a sad song, it could be just a song that reminds me of you, like "Jack and Diane", and I tears ball up in my eyes. I'll play text twist on yahoo, and in the words I can spell your name out just about every time. I guess that just means I am hurting. Trin is growing up so fast. The Hospice lady still comes to see her at school, I know you wanted that. Abby Kat kisses your pics and says, "Na Na". I showed her your pic when your and Coy got married and told her that was Na Na. I know you was worried that the kids wouldn't know you, but I won't let that happen. Your name is spoken here every day. Your memory will carry on always as long as I can breath. I miss you Diane.
Just wanted to let you know that I am thinking about you heavily today. We love you Diane, I only wish I could of pulled a rabbit out of a hat and saved you Diane, it is so hard to know, that I couldn't do nothing to save you. I am so used to pulling out all the stops and that time, I couldn't. I keep raking my brain thinking "What if I done this, or what if I done that". Thinking maybe you would be here today, but Donnie says there was nothing we could do. I just wish I could of done something Diane, it is so unfair.
Saturday is Coy's birthday, he will be 2. I am gonna chip in and help out. I hope everything goes well. It would be a lot better if you were here. We had a good time camping last year didn't we? It should of known then you were sick, I guess down in my heart, I knew quite awhile. It was just so nice to see everybody together and getting along. I am having a hard time when the kids get sick. I am always checking to make for sure they are breathing if they rattle in the slightest. Seeing you pass has tramatized me greater than what I realized. Especially since the girls take after you so much. I am constantly waking Trin up to make for sure she is ok, and listening to Abby's heart to make for sure she is breathing. I know you would tell me to stop worrying right now if you were here, but it is so hard Diane. I just wish you were here to gripe at me, do something. You never know how much you miss somebody until they are gone. Good nite. We love you. Latona
Donnie visited your grave this weekend, he has you heavily on his mind. I have been holding him a lot this weekend, telling him I love him, trying to comfort him as much as I can. Saw Larry. The kids gave him a run for his money. They were hanging all over him, asking for this and that. Abby was telling him what to do, (he minds pretty good by the way), and he was having a ball at it. It was good to see him smile. Little Coy is now two. He had a good party, full of family and friends that love him. I sure do wish u could of been there Diane to raise a fuss with those kids, that would of been awesome. I love ya. Latona
