I wake up everyday knowing that my big brother is looking down at me. I miss him so much. Everyday I want to pick up the phone to call him and knowing that I can not talk to him hurts me deeply. I can not wait until the day I can see my big brothers face again, it will be the best day of my life. It hurts deeply every day. He left so soon. Timmy was loved by everyone that knew him and everyone wanted him here but someone more powerful wanted him , God needed his strength. I will always have Timmy in my heart. There is a hole in my heart that can never be filled until we meet again. I Love You Timmy … Love Your Little Sister …Jennifer Nicole 2005

I’ll miss you cuz. Growing up we spent alot of weekends playing together but as we got older and made our own families we didn’t see each other very often. That will always be one thing i’ll regret. It will never be the same to me when I sign online to check my mail. Every time i’d sign on you would be there. Even though we didn’t talk to much online every time the online door open or closed I could always bet it was you. I am truely going to miss seeing you there. It will definetly not be the same. I love you cuz and I’ll miss you very much. Until we meet again take care and god bless.

It seems only fitting to write something online,

since my husband spent so much time on his

computer the last few years while he was

fighting his disease. I feel like I should be

crying every minute of the day, but I am not.

That is not what he would have wanted. I

miss my husband more than words can say.

However, I am very greatful that I got to know

and realize how special he was. He would have

done anything for just about anyone in this world.

He had so much love to give, and for many years

before I met him no one to give it to. Those who

didn’t allow him to touch their hearts really missed

out on something special. I knew what I had in a

husband and the father of our child, and I never

took him for granted. An illness like his makes you

thank God for eveyday you have together. For

those who read this, please live each day to the

fullest and never take anything or anyone for

granted. They may not be there tomorrow. Tell

them what they mean to you. Trust me they need

to hear it.

To the loving family of the young man that God has taken to be pain free, my deepest sympathy to all of you. I have never met this man, but being a patient of the dreadful disease and fighting my own battle, I know what agony he dealt with in his fight and I know the pain that you all feel. May God Bless all of you and give you love and strength in memories. Life is a gift; “Yesterday is history..Tomorrow is a mystery..and TODAY is a “GIFT”, that is why it is called “THE PRESENT”……”

Thank you for allowing me to share this with you during this time of sorrow. Sincerely, Jan
