FC: Our World in 2012
1: 2012 was a pretty rough year for our family. We lost 2 precious family members this year that has ripped through our hearts and have left holes that will never be filled. Grandma Marilyn lost her battle with her Kidney Disease on March 31. She was surrounded by loved ones and her suffering was no more. She is a beautiful angel now and watches over all of us. Losing Uncle Robbie is a loss unbearable by everyone who loved him. He died tragically way to young and has left behind so many memories and many longing to have him back. We grieve and hold each other tight and have faith in the only promise we are left to believe in and that is "until we see them again". For now they are in Heaven and joined with Cousin Randy and all our loved ones who have passed before. Just know that each day is a gift and we need to love each other like its our last day together everyday!!! I did graduate from LPN school in May and started my nursing career at Aicota Healthcare Center in Aitkin. Dad is in his 8th year at Harbor City Masonry and doing well. Mitchell is in 4th Grade and Kortney in 3rd. Brooke and Mason spent some time in daycare this year while mommy was in school and didnt really care for it. They wanted to be home. I don't blame them and am glad that they are now at home and with me each day. I love you all so very much and am hoping that this years memories and photos, though some may bring tears to our eyes, will also bring smiles and memories we can look back and surround us with all the love we have for each other and everyone we love. | All My Love, Mom
