  2. It has been three years and I miss you so very much mom! Today Lisa and I visited the cemetery and cleaned it up a bit and put some flowers out. Just like you would want us to do. You were always worried that no one would but we all try. Love you and miss you forever. I can’t wait until I can be with you,Glen and Dad. Sometimes it seems that’s all I have to look forward to.
