I’m sending a dove to Heaven
With a parcel on its wings.
Be careful when YOU open it.
Its full of beautiful things.
Inside are a million kisses,
Wrapped up in a million hugs,
To say how much I miss YOU
And to send YOU all my love.
I hold You close within my heart,
And there YOU will remain
To walk with me throughout my life
Until we meet again!!!
I LOVE AND MISS YOU SO MUCH, MOM!!!

Dear Mom and Dad,
I just wanted to wish you a Merry Christmas. I miss both of you very much. Again, I think about you all the time. I miss your love, support and your instruction. It is just very different without you. I am just about finished with school. It is just kind of difficult to work and go to school. However, you guys were so correct about the value of education, especially in today’s environment. I will never forget you, and I appreciate everything you have every done for me. I miss you.
