On my way to work today, I started crying.
This time of year always takes me on a sentimental journey.
I've lost some very special loved ones during the holidays.

Violet Lavane Angel
She was my "Angel"
She was my mother-in-law...
She was my friend.
I miss her terribly.
"A Gift For You"
What could I give you that you'd keep for all time?
I'd give you the world, but the world isn't mine.
I'd give you the moon to shine everyday,
And give you the sun to brighten your way.
But I don't own the world, or the moon up above.
So all I can give you is all of my love.
It may not be much, but at least it is mine,
And now it is yours
To keep for all time.
My mother's brother
My Uncle Lester lived out of state.
We only saw him every few years.
But one thing I always knew, even when I was a little girl,
was how much he loved my sisters and I.
I regret not being able to spend more time with him.
We lost her on Christmas day many years ago.
She was so sweet and loved all her grandchildren.

I miss you Papa and Buba.
Papa always called us "Prunies"
We always opened our presents on Christmas Eve.
Buba was a bartender at the Eagles, and they served
Tom & Jerry's at Christmas.
So three little girls waited patiently for them to arrive
so we could open our presents!
Those we love don't go away,
They walk beside us everyday.
Unseen, unheard, but always near,
Still loved, still missed, and very dear.
