Miss you friend...

Dear Steph,

Today is 3 years you left this world to go be with our Heavenly Father... 3 years ago, you left behind the pains & aches of this world... 3 years ago, life changed for me and for so many who knew you....3 years that feels like forever, but also just like yesterday...

Your children are still doing so well.  You'd be so proud to see the Christian men & women they are... you'd be a beaming grandma at how you're beautiful grandbabies have'd be so excited that a new one is about to arrive!  You'd beam with me & Ricky as we welcomed a new grandbaby too... I know you'd be taking Luke as your own too. 

I still think of you daily & talk about memories we shared to Ricky.... the laughs we had... the trips we took... the times we cried on each others shoulders.... Something happens so often where Ricky & I look at each other & say "Steph would love that..." or "Remember when me & Steph did this..."

I think of you with every piece of yarn I buy - with every project I knit - with every yellow or red bush that blooms new every Spring - with every concert that worships the Lord - with every meal that I attempt to make (you'd still be amazed at that, I'm sure!)... with every day, a thought of something makes me want to pick up the phone & tell you about it...

With every joy I have in my life, I miss sharing it with you... with every tear I shed, I miss your encouraging words.... I just miss you friend...

3 years ago... life definitely changed for so many...

You are still so loved... and so missed MY friend (yes, Ricky & I STILL have that argument... I know you STILL love it!)

Words cant even really truly express how much you are missed... to me & to everyone who knew you...
Love you my sweet Angel Friend!!!
