5: I want to start off and say thanks. Thanks for being there for me whenever I needed someone. Since we were younger you have taken care of me and helped me though things that I couldn't talk to anyone else in the world about. I could never ask for a better sister. You were never too busy for me, even if I had homework when I was little and it was late. I loved growing up with you. We had fun together even if we weren't getting along all the time. I love you very much Michelle, you are the best big sister and best friend anyone could ask for. | Love Ryan
6: a daughter is the happy memories of the past, the joyful moments of the present and the hope and promises of the future. | Emily
18: A sister is a gift to the heart, a friend to the spirit, a golden thread to the meaning of life.
24: don't wait to make your son a great man, but make him a great boy.
38: From the day that I found out that I was pregnant with you, I loved you and my love continues to grow more everyday. I have always been proud of you! You have overcome things in your life that are hard to imagine and grown and learned from them. I envy and admire the woman that you have become. You are a great Mom! You set goals for yourself and stick with them. You have given me two grandchildren that I adore and you have worked hard to give the kids more than I ever could give you and I admire that in you. Though you tend to go overboard sometimes. You are beautiful inside and out. It shows in the way that you treat people and the way people treat you. Remember the song “You & Me Against the World”? I still cry when I hear it because it reminds me of you and I when you were small. You changed my life and made me a better person just being in it! I love you more than anything! -Mom
39: Dear Michelle, I don't even know where to begin in expressing how much you mean to me. You have been with me through every moment of my life since the 7th grade. Funny moments like, "Meechelle, turn around & stop talking" and "I'M DRESSING!!!!" and sad moments like breaking up with boyfriends and my dad's passing. I am so glad we have been able to spend more time together over the past couple years. You are truly an inspiration to me, my hero. You have been through Hell and back with things that you have had to deal with in your life and you went through each one of those with such grace and determination. Your kids are absolutely AWESOME, a total reflection of you. I love you with all my heart and have visions of us growing old together and walking Grants Trail with our walkers cursing those people saying, "On your left!" I am so glad you are a part of my life. I love you -Tammy
40: Mom, You're seriously the best mom any teenager could ever imagine having. You're not only my mom but my best friend. You are always there for me and even sometimes when I don't want you to be, but it's always the best for me. You have taught me so much and I know that I can count on you for anything. I love you so much and don't think you understand that sometimes. We fight and argue a lot but we always get over it, I can never stay mad at you. Jake, you and I have the best times ever. You mean the world to me and always will, thank you so much for everything you do for me. I seriously have no idea what I would do without you in my life. You're the best mom ever and I love you soooo much! -Emily
41: Dear mom, when were sad and upset u are always there for us and when we need to talk to you, you are always there for us and your always there to keep us safe. So, I just wanted to let u know are the best mom ever Merry Christmas -Jake
42: Michelle you are the daughter I never had. I LOVE you unconditionally. You bring so much to my life. I'm proud of the person you have grown to be. You're such a terrific MOM and provider for Emily and Jake. I watched you grow from a child to a young woman to a grown woman with a family. You've had challenges in your life that most people would have let defeat them. But not you, you're so strong and so focused on what is important. You are smart, sincere, sweet, big hearted, funny and an all round wonderful person. Never change, and please never stop loving me like you do. I can't live without you in my life. I LOVE YOU....Aunt Janet
