No, we will never, never forget her.
You have lots of memories to share with
your kiddoes.
My heart is full of precious memories of
of a special daughter.

Your mom will always be one of the best women I've had the pleasure of knowing. I will never forget hiking with her in Montana. She is the only person who visited me both summers. What a sense of adventure!

I can really relate. I lost my mom too, 4 years ago. Hard, isn't it?!

I am so thankful that I was able to meet your mom and even more thankful that I have her two beautiful daughters as friends. I know she loves your babies and she is so proud of you and Kate, then men you chose as husbands and the way you are raising your children. Her legacy lives on in you. That smile on her face is so both of your smiles!!!!

Emily.....We went to high school together, your sister, yourself and I. My mom had the fortune of getting to know yours during her therapy after an injury. My mom lost her mother when she was 15. They were very close and I wish I had had the chance to know her. Anyway, upon hearing of the loss of your mother, mine was quite upset. If she was special in my mother's life, she was special to mine. Now, being the mother of three boys of my own, I now appreciate the relationship of mother and child like I never could as a snotty teenager. I never had the chance to meet your mom. I check your work from time to time and you touch me. You express yourself and love of family in such an inspirational way. You are touching lives.....so today, I have to say a 'thank you' and 'good job' to your mother for creating such a beautiful daughter.
Thank you for sharing your beauty.

Dear Emily,

Nate and I were talking about that terrible night just last week. It is hard to believe ten years have gone by. The ache of losing a mother never quite goes away. . .a longing for her to experience life with you, someone to love your children in the way only a grandmother can. . . You will "always remember"-- she is a much a part of who you are today-- woven into the fabric of every joy you experience, every sorrow you face--as anyone ever will be.

Remember, and rejoice, in the gift she was to you.

Love to you and Katie,
