Missing you / Mom
January 2016 / Mom Off into another year without you! It has been 19 years, I would have never fathom such length of time without you. This Christmas, 2015 Doug and I celebrated for the first time together a portion of you with us. Shae Marie shared Christmas with us on Christmas day. It was a most awesome day! I thought of you and though you were and have always been in every celebration via my heart, this Christmas a bit of your flesh and blood was with us.
Mamaw and papaw are aging quickly. Papaw is now 82 and mamaw is 76...Aunt Jeretta has moved back home to Little River County.
You dad's wife, died a few years ago with cancer and I hear that he is happier now than he has been in years that he is doing really well....Bridget and her family are still in Indiana.
Sometimes it seems as just yesterday at 6:10 a.m. the officers showed up at my house on that cold December morning to bring to me the fate of my oldest son! I miss you so terribly much. Then other times it is the most unbearable because it has been so long since I have touched you, heard your voice tell me "love you mamma"....watch you cut up with your brother...We all miss you so much.
Doug has done really well with his son, Hunter Craig. Hunter is now 15 and such a good kid.
We all at times think and sometimes talk about what life would have been life with you walking it with us. We can only weave loving images of the one we love that no longer walks this earthly journey.
Just a few weeks ago Sherry passed away. Her death was a tragic death. But then every death of a mother's child is tragic isn't it?
Life has moved forward son, and we all have found laughter again, as the Lord purposes. But never are you absent from our hearts and our minds as we continue forward. Until the day the Lord withholds his breathe and we cross over we shall always speak your name and dance with your memories my son!I love you Craig and miss you so so much!
Christmas 2014 / Mom 18 years ago this Christmas season, you left the presence of this earth to go to your eternal dwelling.....with you a portion of my heart also left. I miss you every day, every day something is there to remind me of you. This year, the first Christmas with your daughter, Shae Marie. I am so excited....loving her because of who she is, loving her because you run through her veins, loving her because she is my granddaughter.....I may never know the complete truth of all this story but what I know is you never had the opportunity to know your daughter, watch her grow up and she never knew you ..,. may I somehow reveal you to her ....
Many changes in the family, some I would have never thought possible, would have never thought it would be the way that it is ....but just as your leaving this life for the next life, I have no control to prevent...if so you would be here with us, and things would be different in the life that is at hand right now.
Please forgive me for not visiting this site as much as I used to. It is certainly not evidence of love decreasing or fading away. We made it through Thanksgiving quite uneventful ...but Christmas this year will be awesome!
I love you son, my heart fills up with laughter and joy sometimes when I journey in my treasure box and then sometimes I cry and sometimes it is too pain that I have to close it ...
I miss you Craig Soon we all shall be together as God has planned and purposed....I love you son!
Happy Heavenly 39th Birthday Son / Mom
Son, it has been so long since we have had the privilege of hearing your voice, hearing your laughter, and watch you thump Doug on the head....we miss you so much....It has been 16 birthdays that have gone by without you....I find sometimes that I don't want to put more flowers out on your grave, so I tried to find something different, something not so girlie....and then I remember....you are in Heaven not in that plot of ground .... and the flowers are for mostly me to soothe my heart that weeps bitterly over your loss still today. So many changes in our lives, all of our lives...your dad's, mine, Doug's Mamaw and Papaw's, Aunt Jeretta, so many that loved you!
I love you son
Happy 39th Birthday My Sweet Son
Happy Easter Craig / Mom
St. Patrick's Day ~ Miss you son / Mom

Missing You Today Son! / Mom
Thinking of you this early Sunday morning and my heart weeps silently.
I have had you on my mind so much this week. How I wish that I could touch you for but a moment, hear your sweet voice tell me, Momma I love you.
Sometimes it still seems impossible that you are no longer trodding the pathways of this earth's pastures, gracing our celebrations of holidays, birthdays, and just the family time together.
So much to say, so much to explain, so much so much
Craig, I love you son and miss you terribly. Surely, soon we all shall be together roaming in that beautiful celestial land of God's Presence, to never be separated again!
Today, December 18, 1996 -16 years ago / Mom
Craig, 16 years ago today, was the day that you crossed over. How we miss you, your memory never has ceased to be or fade! You are still a part of our conversations and not a holiday goes by that we don't share our thoughts of you. I am looking so forward to walking the streets of Gold with you son! Meet me at the gate!
I love you Craig
A piece of our family puzzle left us, December 18, 1996 @ 11:36 p.m.
Life has never been the same!
Merry Christmas My Son ~ I love and miss you / Mom
Happy Thanksgiving / Mom
As every Thanksgiving since 1997, the first Thanksgiving without you, there is one an empty chair at our banquet table and one missing from our holiday celebration. We love you and miss you terribly son!
Thinking of you! / Mom
Today my dear son, my heart feels the deepest lonliness for you. How I would love to hear your laughter, to experience your cocky walk, and your beautiful mischievous smile. It will soon be the season for all deer hunters to begin their preparations for the deer woods....and my thoughts always always are on you this time of year...how you loved the excitment of the hunt, listening to the dogs, the weather.....how you are so missed! I know there are others that always think of you this time of year also...how could we not?
Papaw and Mamaw are aging quickly, they are in their late seventies now, mostly aches and pains of their tired old bodies. Aunt Jeretta is well....Bridge is the mother of three kiddos, Jacob which you knew, and two girls, Caitlyn which was born the day before you died, and Macy. She and Hunter Craig share the same birthday 24th. Hunter being two years older than Macy. Doug is doing really well with his work. I am extremely proud of him.....He has stood in the midst of many storms in his life. He has held tight to the hand of the Lord to pull him through....I know you would have given him a hard time through some it ....tough love....that was always your thought.....just have to pick up and go on....
I have had the most incredible pleasure of getting to be around Dwayne this summer. He and Doug are good friends. He has put Hunter to work this summer. Hunter thinks the world of him...I think it makes all of us feel closer to you and puts you in the midst of our friendship.
Hunter Craig is now a seventh grader....geez it is so hard to believe! He is playing football and he wears your number proud! Do not know if he will be as tough as you were, you were one tough football player....but we are all so incredibly proud that we can watch another Sehon run the field in the #25 Jersey!
My heart hurts with this tremendous pain today. It is beautiful outside and if you could stand beside me, you would fuss at me and say, Mama stop your crying get outside, enjoy the living, much to do, places to go, people to see.
I just need to hold my oldest son is what I would reply back to you!
Reckon you could arrange that for me?
I love you Craig
Forever in my heart forever in my soul forever in my mind
Missing you / Mom
Missing you this morning my son! I love you

Life sure can throw us some curve balls uhn son? I miss you and though you never had a chance to be "DADDY"I wanted to wish you a Happy Father's Day anyway!
