Dear Toni, I noticed you wrote in the V.M. parents page. You said it was raining when you lost your mom,and grandma,now you will never look at rain the same way.Let me give you a diffrent thought about rain.When it rains,it gives life, to what needs nourishment.Toni maybe that rain was a sign that said your mother has a new life and lots of nourishment.A clensing of all the pain, if you will.When I wrote that poem about the rain,these were my thoughts.Just thought I would throw that out there for you.Maybe as a sign? I love you my friend...Rose

Dear Momma,

I spent the day with Dad today, we have decided to go ahead with a memorial for Aunt Virginia, so when Stephanie and the kids get back from Aunt Mary's funeral in LA, I'll have her help me plan it. I worry so much about Dad, he doesn't look good. He was very ashen today and kept complaining of not feeling good. Momma I can't lose him right now, I am barely dealing with your leaving, and so many of our loved ones have left also. Please Mom watch over Dad, he talks to you every night before he goes to bed, he misses you terribly and I'm afraid with losing all his siblings now he is going to give up! But then it just maybe my fear of him leaving me alone! I've taken care of you and Dad so many years with no regard to my own life, that I don't know anything else. But I pray every night for you and him and alot of my new friends here at VM. Whom without I could have never made it this far. Now the doctor is worried about my heart and gave me nitro to carry until I can be scheduled into Sacred Heart Hospital, for a procedure. I broke out with what I thought was a spider bite on the side of my face, but it has gotten worse and is spreading, they think it's just stress! But they will do a culture to be sure. I thought I was under control, but subconsciously I'm falling apart. I'm hoping my friends that are reading this understand my distance right now? I love them all dearly, but don't even have the heart right now to write to each of them to explain! I know they are so wonderful about visiting you, so they can catch up on whats happening with me here! In the long run I have you to thank for my new family, you always did look out for me and worried I didn't make enough friends busying myself with you and Daddy all the time. I hope I never made you feel like a burden to me Momma, as I loved being with you and caring for you, it just broke my heart when I'd find you sitting at the end of your bed crying, because you felt useless. Dad said he had a dream that you and him went for a ride in our van, and you asked him for the keys so you could drive! How I would have loved to have seen that. Remember all the times you would come pick me up on Saturday mornings and we hit the yard sales then went to lunch together? God how I miss those times! Stephanie is having thanksgiving at her house this year, we are so going to miss you and your wonderful turkey gravy! I'm going to try so be near!! OMG remember the first time I tried making gravy? The spoon stuck in it and it would not pour out of the gravy bowl!! You laughed so hard at me! I always said one day I would make gravy as good as my Mother's, we'll see. lol. I'm really tired tonight and drained, so I think I'll head to bed. I love you Mom, and miss you so very much, tell Nanny, Aunt Mary and Aunt Virginia I love them to. And all my new Angel friends who have been helping me. Thank you Momma for being the Mother you were to me....Your loving Daughter Toni

Dear Toni:

I'm sorry for your loss, and I can not even put into words how much you must be going through. I don't know many comforting words to offer, I lost my father on October 18th and I am having a very hard time dealing with the surroundings of his death. I do know that if I'm still managing to breathe right now, we'll all make it through one day at a time. If you would ever like to talk, you can find me at myspace.com/stephanyisastoner

Best wishes and lots of love, Stephany M. Bissonette (VM's Steven Zabel's daughter).

Dear Toni and Sweet Angels in Heaven, Bonnie, Now Virginia,

I am so sorry for your continued losses - they do say when it rains it pours and I told you in 2004, I went to 11 funerals and this year, right after my Mama died I went to 15 so I KNOW what you are going through.

I was going to write something heartfelt and of comfort but I came across this poem this morning instead and believe it will bring you the peace it gave me as I read its words.

Toni, I am calling on ALL VM angels, both your Mama and mine, Cathy, Gino, Bill, the others and all of our alive and well angels here on Earth to say prayers for you today and through this most difficult of times. I love you and wish you strength and solace always.

Hugs and 1,000 kisses, Christi

SAFELY HOME

"I am home in heaven, dear ones. Oh, so happy and so bright! There is perfect joy and beauty In this everlasting light. All the pain and grief is over, Every restless tossing passed; I am now at peace forever, Safely home in heaven at last. There is work still waiting for you, So you must not idly stand, Do it now, while life remainth - You shall rest in God's own land. When that work is all completed. He will gently call you home; Oh, that rapture of that meeting Oh, the joy to see you come!" Author Unknown

Toni, I am so sorry for the loss of your mother. She sounds like she was such a kind and wonderful person. Your website for her is very touching and I am sure she would be so proud of what you have created for her. I know how hard it is to lose your mother, I lost my mother many years ago. Her name is Ruth M Rothwell, who is also here at VM. Thank you so much for signing my father John S Zales' guestbook. What a lovely message you wrote. God bless you and your dear sweet mother. Rose

Hi My Love Toni, and sweet Bonnie in Heaven,

Thank you for your friendship and for your sweet message to me and my Mama today. I, too, did not forget our lost loved ones and soldiers who have fallen or currently serve to fight for our very freedoms - the ones that all too many take for granted. I honor them with you and appreciate your special page on doing so here at VM - thank you.

I also love your Holidays in Heaven page - oh, how our angels must be looking forward to their firsts there with all of our angels. What great company they are keeping eh? I do not envy much in my Life for it is not right to do so, but I do envy my Mama in Heaven and look forward to the day we can be reunited as I am sure you do as well.

Toni, I added a bit of a story that took place today with me and Jess in church - what a great sermon Pastor Paul gave - it touched me enough to share it with you and my other VM angels here and above. Please take a few minutes and note it on my Mother's page 39 - at the bottom - I love to share and spread joy when I receive it and today was no exception. Toni, YES, I know what you mean about being so happy and so sad all at the same time. Sometimes I wonder if I blew a fuse or something because I can be at my highest high and lowest low all at once. Since Mama passed, I find myself reaching both heights and lows easily. I KNOW you know what I am talking about.

I love you my friend and feel blessed to call you family as I do Darla, Angie, Priscilla, and Tina. I too would never have been able to handle the emotions I have had over the past 8 months without them and you. I consider myself truly blessed.

Hugs and kisses to you this week - please keep us abreast of your other "medical-related" family members who are on the verge of meeting our Moms. I pray for your strength and peace daily.

My Sweet Friend Toni and Beautiful Angel Bonnie,

Toni, You cannot begin to imagine How much you have touched my heart today. The beautiful gift you have sent me, Via Christi, is just wonderful!!!! I am so honoured to have you in my life!!!!! I know that your Angel Mom, Bonnie is also preparing for Christmas in Heaven with all our Angels, Gino, Cathy, Maria, Juanita, Heather, Bill, Baby Taylor, John, Cathrine, Mike, Brian, Gina, and many many more of our VM Angels that we love so much. I Love your "Mom's Favourite Time of the Year" page. It is just beautiful. Thank you so much for including my Angel Gino in it also. You just cannot understand how much it means to me!!!!! I Love You. I started a Christmas page for Gino also, please come and see it. I love you, My prayers are always with you my dear friend, Toni.

Toni, I am so sorry you are going through so much death close to you right now.And YES, I know my momma will help welcome them home.I know its hard on you & your family.Just be there for your dad as much as possible.Ya know it seems as we get older, we know we are getting closer & closer to that time.Ya know we can sit here & talk about,how we can't wait to get to heaven,Well I want to go to heaven, but I don't want to go right now.I think most feel that way,except for the ones that are in so much pain.Then they are ready right then.I recall when my father-inlaw was terminal with cancer.He said Rose" Is it wrong for me to pray for God to go ahead & take me?"I" said is that what you want father?His reply was "yes" I'm tired of suffering and sitting here with wondering thoughts,& just waiting.I said you go right ahead & keep on praying then.SEE,he could not talk about death with his wife,for she would become angry at him for talking that way.Sometimes you just need to let them talk & listen.That meant more to him.You are in my prayers my friend.God Bless & take care.Love & Hugs...Rose

Hi Bonnie, our angel in Heaven and her beautiful daughter and one of our dearest angels here on Earth, Toni,

My prayers continue for you sweetheart. I know what you are going through - as I said for us it was 2004 and this year - the deaths that tallied up between the families and friends was very high and you know you are spending too much time at a funeral park or cemetery when they know you are on first name basis and the grave diggers begin to wave friendly and cordial waves my direction! (Wink).

Toni, thank you for your kind words to my Mama's guestbook. Each and every entry from all of my VM friends and family mean the world to me - each word touches me in a different way and all too often I do not feel worthy of the kudos as I do not think I am doing anything special but living my Life to the fullest and following the Lord's direction to serve Him and others while we are here on limited time.

Yes, I have accepted my Dad's decision (not really much I can do from here) it is just that I was so used to taking care of him and my Mom that since I have been away these past few months, it made me feel good to be able to cook and clean for him again and help him with transportation, etc. But the more I think about it, Mom always wanted him to pursue honest work outside of the home since he lost his business - he was driving her nuts at times (ha ha) because he is a natural "fix it" kind of guy and she saw his mood failing when he could not feel independent and things were okay again for him as he helped me take care of her, but when she was gone, he seemed not only lost because now he had no one to care for, but in honesty, his work was done and he did not know what to do with himself. This Church position is one I actually was promoting from the onset since I knew the "deal" was a great one - a nice 1,500 sq ft. clean and safe place to live PLUS an income for the work he would do for the Church, not to mention, he would be socializing with others his age and with a similar belief system. But when the Church selected another candidate, it became a closed issue and the "right" thing to do was to move closer to us up here - his type of town, country folk, no BS, etc. The only thing that concerned me was his ability to move after so many years in a wram climate and all he knew with my Mama was down there. But then he seemed so excited about it all - and BINGO - the decision was made and I went full steam ahead with plans for him to move up and lots and lots of research and footwork for his move to go very smoothly. Then, this past Monday, I get the news that the other candidate fell through and he is accepting the church offer again - JUST AFTER I MADE ARRANGEMENTS TIGHT WITH THE LANDLORD AND PEOPLE UP HERE. Alas, Toni, I feel like I am on another rollercoaster ride but this time I felt the need to get off and remove myself from the equation quickly. I asked my brother to assist with the move into the church property and for the things of my Mom's that he would not keep, I asked him to store them with Patrick down at his shop until he was ready to come up. I wanted to give my Mom the honor of going through her things and pass them on to an appreciative set of church ladies or others I met that would be my Mama's size. On the things I did not keep for me (the suits I could use for business) but most of her stuff was for an older woman, I know, hard as it will be, I need to do this for my Mama. It was a job I was postponing for awhile on purpose. I just know when I sit down to do it, I will remember her in every little outfit and picture her the vision of great health as she made everything look so good. Hey Toni, do you think you or Darla or Rose or Myra or one of the other ladies would want any of my Mama's finer things? She has impeccable taste and in truth, I bought most of my Mom's more elegant things since I could afford to do so back then, but I want to ensure they go to people that will honor them, not just take them for granted. Does this make sense? If you happen to know of anyone that wears size 10 - 14 things - pants, skirts, blouses, suits, pullovers, etc., M - L sizes - my Mom was thin but tall, so thus the larger sizes. Keep us in mind as the things will be brought up in two loads - in late November and in late December, so there is plenty of time to think about it.

Toni, I love you and hope you are remaining strong for the things you are going through as well and more losses ahead of you that seem closeby. My prayers are many for you my friend and no matter if I write or not, I want you to know I remain faithful to my VM family.

Please keep us updated on your family's matters and your friends, k? Our hearts and thoughts are with you.

Hugs abound, Christi

Dearest Toni and Dear Angel Bonnie,

It has been awhile since my last visit and like you, I am not as dedicated to come visit here - my heart has been heavy and although my joy great, I am having a more difficult time finding time to come visit and write openly with all that is happening in my life these days. I am so sorry to hear of the illnesses in your family and will keep you in my prayers as I have been. It is weird that you mention the two month thing - for us it was the years thing - in 2004 alone, we lost 11 family members and 4 close friends and then again this year, my Mama's death seemed to open a door to alot of funerals we had not planned to go to yet - 15 in all. Strange how things happen "in numbers."

Anyway my sweet, I added some stories to my Mama's site when you have a chance to visit on the bottom of page 39 and then also an entry I left for her earlier today explaining my latest "not planned news."

I wish you continued strength and some peace shortly - you need it girlfriend. We all do.

Hugs and kisses.
