Dee, Dennis and Tim-I am so sorry. Your Dad will be greatly missed. He was this family's rock and now we have lost him. Today will be one of the hardest days of your lives and I wish that I could be there to help you all. I fell yesterday getting out of the shower and this morning I fell getting in the tub. I was so determined to be there today, so I tried it again and almost fell again. My ear is swollen and I think it is throwing my sense of balance off. So since I can't be there I will share with all three of you what I have learned from burying both of my parents. Do not be afraid of your memories, they will help you through the really bad times. Do not think that because they are not here that you can't talk to them when you have a problem, ask them and you will get an answer. They never really leave us. Mom is still finding stuff that we loose and Dad. Well, Dad, what can I say. I feel him shaking his head and saying, "I taught her better than that." I don't know if you have heard this one about our Dad's and Jessie Taylor. Jessie was telling me this when Aunt Daisy died. When it rained all three of them would ride horses to school. Uncle Dent always got the mean one. When they would start across the creek the horse that Uncle Dent was on would stop real quick and he would end up wet in the creek. He would have to go back home and change clothes and they made him go to school. I looked at all of them and told them we did not want to hear those stories of when I was young I walked so many miles to school in the snow and rain. I know of one other tale about Uncle Dent, but I am not going to tell it on here. I will tell you in private.I really wish I could be there with you because for me it would be closure. It is so hard for me to believe that he is gone from this world. When I get where I can move without hurting so much we will have to talk about the good old days and our memories. And yes, it will get easier, but at first it seems like you will never stop hurting. You will stop hurting but it will just take time. Love you all very much and my heart is with you all, today.

Dee, I know your life has been hard the past few years, and I am sure this loss is as devastating as any! I was only 17 when I lost my daddy, and I still remember how hard it was. Of course you and your family are in my thoughts and prayers, and If your need me don't hesitate to CALL, DAY OR NIGHT! Love You :-)
