Memories of Kyra
SEPTEMBER 14, 2009
Hey baby girl..sorry I'm a couple of days late, lost track of time..:-(..but I'm here now) and missing you terribly after 3 years, 10 months and 2 weeks..never gets easier. Anyway, I'm gonna write early for the week of 9/28 cause I won't be here..I'll be in NJ as Sharon gives birth to her first baby...it's so exciting. Wish daddy was able to go but you should remember when we had to leave you, Tucker, Abby and Ebony a few times...it wasn't fun and it was also costly. But daddy will be here with them and taking good care of all 3 of them. Of course, they'll probably sit by the front door watching for me..heehee..but I won't be there but I'll have them all in my thoughts and heart. In the meantime, hope you're having fun playing with everyone.Another thing, next week on Tuesday, will be the first day of fall so I'm gonna change your residency to fall colors. I hope you'll enjoy what I put there. Oh, Dr. Hudson, your old vet, was recently diagnosed with a brain tumor. We all hope he's going to be okay..he is such a wonderful man and I hope he'll be able to be cured. All the pets need him, so say an extra prayer that he gets better. In the meantime, please give Tucker a hug and a kiss from all of us and then take one back from him for yourself and always remember how much we love and miss you. Forever in our hearts. Love, Daddy and Mommy

SEPTEMBER 21, 2009
Hi baby girl..still missing you so much even after 3 years, 10 months and 3 weeks later...you are always on my mind,believe me. Anyway, I'm also gonna write for next week since I won't be here and I certainly want you to know I'm thinking about you. Daddy and Bobby Schnoor and a couple of daddy's friends covered the pool and now, we have a leak so it's gonna cost more money cause the casing around the outgoing jet is cracked..never ending. I'm starting to pack my things for the journey to NJ..and on Sunday, 9/27, when I leave, I find out the Redskins are playing at home at 1PM..guess I'll hit all kinds of traffic but as long as I don't run out of gas, I'll have to deal with it...oh well, you keep a sharp lookout for me sweet girl and make sure I'm okay. Now, I must write you for next week, so til I get home, know how much I love and miss you...watch over daddy and make sure he's okay. Love, Hugs and Licks, Daddy and Mommy

SEPTEMBER 28, 2009
Hey my gracious young lady..I'm back again..lol. It's another week added to the time you've been gone making it 3 years and 2 days shy of 11 months, but it still seems as tho it were yesterday. I'm sure you're doing okay, but at least you aren't hurting anymore. I just want you to know that I'm here in NJ and waiting for Sharon to have the baby..I'll certainly let you and Tucker know when I get home if it's a boy or girl..another grandbaby and another 'niece or nephew' for you and Tucker..how nice is that? Okay my dear girl, you take care, watch over Tucker, give him a hug and a kiss and then you take them back for yourself...and, remember how much daddy and I love you and miss you. Til next week. Love, Daddy and Mommy

OCTOBER 5,2009
Hi sweetie pie...I'm back from NJ and as usual, wishing you were here...yep, the time is flying by making it 3 years, 11 months and 4 days...a long time to miss you and love you and that will be forever and a day. In any event, Sharon had a little boy she named Michael and he's so cute and lovable. She's coming down on the 20th of October with the little guy to meet daddy..his grandpa..and will probably stay a week. I wish she would move down here and get away from the guy she's with...but, I know that'll never happen. It was a long trip but I'm home now and very happy. Unfortunately, Sharon was in the hospital a little longer than expected but I think she's doing pretty good if she would just get a little more help and I doubt if that'll happen. Danni has been a godsend to her and Karen will be there tomorrow to bond with her nephew so we'll see how things go. In the meantime, know how much I miss you and love you and you will be in our hearts forever and a day. Please give Tucker a hug and a kiss from all of us. Love, Daddy and Mommy

OCTOBER 12, 2009
Hi sweetheart..'happy Columbus Day' to you. As usual, another week's gone by of missing you making it 3 years, 11 months and 2 weeks. The love for you, Kyra, will be with us forever and a day. You always made us happy and the love you had for everyone made you number one in all our lives. I still wish you were here but unfortunately, God won't allow pets to live on like people but you will live on in our hearts forever. Just to keep you updated, we had Abby to Dr. French today and unfortunately, she has hip dysplasia on her right side. She had been having a hard time getting up, like you did, and she was favoring her right leg so we decided to take her to the vet. We were so upset with the diagnosis because, as you well know, we take care of our furbabies and always made sure you all had the best care. She's just so young for this to happen but we'll deal with it and take care of her like we took care of you and Tucker. Hopefully, all will be good so say an extra prayer for her. Okey dokey, my love, gonna go and get some work done..til next week, know we love and miss you and hugs and kisses to you and please give hugs and kisses to Tucker from all of us. Til next week, Love, Daddy and Mommy

OCTOBER 19, 2009
Hey Kyra, how are you doing? Hopefully, all is well since you left us 3 years, 11 months and 3 weeks ago...still, toooo long but seems like yesterday. Just wanted to let you know that Sharon will be coming down tomorrow with Michael..our newest grandbaby..and daddy will be so looking forward to seeing him since it'll be his first time. I just wish you could be here along with Tucker to meet little Michael..the both of you would love him to death. Also wanted to let you know Abby is still hurting but with the Synovi-G3, she's maybe a tad bit better. I don't want to give her the Rimadyl because it really zonked her out the last time so I'm holding off as long as I could. Spoke to Dr. Schwabe and she said we could ask Dr. French to give her tramadol and something else but I just don't want to start her on too many meds..I'm sure you can understand that. Anyway, gotta start dinner and then have to do Abby and Ebony's teeth..yep, cleaning them is a chore..lol. So, my dear sweet girl you take care, give Tucker a hug and a kiss for us and all the rest of the family and friends and then have Tucker give you one of each back from us. Be happy sweet girl and know we love and miss you terribly. Love, Daddy and Mommy

OCTOBER 26, 2009
Hi sweet girl,hope all is good with you but we're all still missing you terribly even after 3 years, 3 weeks and 5 days..geez, the time has flown by. Just wanted to update you, Sharon went home yesterday with little Michael and we miss him so much. I wish they would just move down here but I doubt if that'll ever happen, but who knows. Abby went to Dr. French today and she has torn ligaments all thru her right hind leg...just a lot of pain for her..you should remember that sweet girl. Anyway, she has Deramaxx that she needs to take and she can't have any physical activity with Ebony and Molly until she heals and that could take a long time. Never a dull moment in our house. Well my dear, I'm gonna take a bike ride so you have an enjoyable day, please give Tucker a hug and a kiss for us and then you take one back from him from us and know you're in our hearts forever and a day. Til next week, Love, Daddy and Mommy

OCTOBER 31, 2009
Happy 4th anniversary in heaven and Rainbow Bridge sweet baby girl, Kyra. Oh how much we love and miss you...you'll never believe. Please be happy and always remember that you are in our hearts forever and we hope we're in yours forever, too. Love, Daddy and Mommy

NOVEMBER 2, 2009
Hi sweetheart..hope all is well with you and since last week when we celebrated your 4th anniversary in heaven, it's now 2 more days and we're still missing you terribly. Kyra, please do me and daddy a big favor and say some extra prayers for Abby...she isn't doing too good, her back leg is like jelly and she's had diarrhea and has been pooping in the house cause she can't control it. Dr. French thinks she might have some neurological damage, possibly when she, Molly and Ebony all roughhouse together, she got hurt...we don't know for sure but we want her to get better really quick...please help her out. That's about all the news for now so I'm gonna close cause I have to go to the prayer request and do yours and Tucker's. Oh, please give Tucker a hug and a kiss from all of us and you take one back from him and one last thing, never forget you will always be in our hearts - forever and a day and I hope we'll always be in yours. Love, Daddy and Mommy

NOVEMBER 9, 2009
Hi baby girl..yep, another week's gone by..time is just flying and 4 years and a week is just too long to go on missing you. I know you're not in pain anymore, for which I am so happy and I know you're watching over daddy and I and trying to make sure we do the right thing with the other pups and we certainly are trying. I'm gonna have daddy call Dr. French in the morning to see if there's something more we can do for Abby's torn ligaments - her back right leg is just like jelly - and she can't jump, squat or anything...it's so sad. Anyway, I hope you're having fun with all your friends and just to remind you, Thanksgiving and Christmas are in the very near future. Daddy brought up a lot of the Christmas decorations today..time's not waiting for anyone..lol. Well, I'm off to Weight Watchers, gotta get this fat off this body, so take care of yourself, give Tucker a hug and a kiss for us and then you take one back from him for yourself and know you are in our hearts forever......and a day. Love, Daddy and Mommy

NOVEMBER 16, 2009
Good morning Kyra...as always, after 4 years and 2 weeks plus 2 days, we're still missing you terribly. Hope all is going good with you, you're having fun with Tucker and you're running and romping pain free..the most important thing. Just to update you, Abby had surgery on Wednesday, she had a partial tear in her ACL..had a very hard time walking but she's doing better. Now, hopefully, she'll start to bend the knee/leg and be able to squat to do her business..lol. We also had a flood in the basement again but that's all fixed. Now it's getting close to the holidays so I'll be baking soon..wish you were here to 'smell' the goodies but I know you'll be able to 'see' them. Anyway, gotta get going, have laundry and ironing to do and then I wanna go thru the baking goods to see what I'm gonna need to start the cookies. In the meantime, give Tucker a hug and a kiss and you take one back for yourself. Know both of you are in our hearts forever. Love, Daddy and Mommy

NOVEMBER 23, 2009
Hi baby girl..my precious angel, oh how much I miss you even after 4 years and 3 weeks..much too long but my loving you and missing you will never end. Wanted to check in and see how you're doing and ask you to please say a couple of extra prayers for Abby since her leg isn't responding the way it should. It's still wobbly when she walks and putting so much pressure on her left leg, that's causing her left one not to work. She has a bad callus like abrasion on her left ankle because of scraping it on the ground when she tries to get up..it's just sad. Tomorrow she goes to the vet and we'll see what her prognosis will be...hopefully, we'll get some good news. Anyway, please give Tucker a hug and a kiss for us, take one back for yourself and know you will always be in our hearts and our love will always be with you forever and a day. Til next week, Love, Daddy and Mommy

NOVEMBER 30, 2009
Hi sweet girl...just checking in as usual - yep, the time is still passing by since you left us 4 years and 1 month ago - much, much too long. In any case, we still love you and miss you so very much and wish yo were still here to celebrate the holidays with us. right now, our main concern is getting Abby better. She's having such a major problem getting up and walking - her right leg is just too weak and I assume, hurting so much, she isn't putting weight on it so she's losing the strength in it and forcing all her weight on her left hind which is now getting weaker. So, she's having that major problem..please say extra prayers for her so she can be 'normal' again and have a ball with Ebony and Molly. In the meantime, daddy is leaving tonite to head to NJ to put the blankets on all the cemeteries where our family is, so wish him good luck and a safe trip. Anyway, gotta get a move on - so, sweet girl, hugs and kisses to you and please give them to Tucker also. Know you are in our hearts forever and a day. Love, Daddy and Mommy

DECEMBER 7, 2009
Hi baby girl, I'm a day or so late but I'm still dating it for this past Monday - the day you left us 4 years, 1 month and 1 week ago..and how it still seems like it was yesterday. I am hurting so badly to let you know that Abby might be joining you and Tucker sooner than expected although I'm still praying for a miracle. We took her to some nasty place yesterday who could not do one thing for her more than Dr. French but it cost us an arm and a leg plus they were all nasty and arrogant. Anyway, daddy is taking her to Dr. Schwabe on Saturday and then we're taking her back to Dr. French on Monday to see if anything can be done to help her. She's on steroids (prednisone) right now but who knows how well they'll continue to try and help. In the meantime, please sweet girl, say some extra prayers that we can get her fixed up and not lose her like we lost you and Tucker, she's way too young to leave us just yet. Anyway, my love, you take care, be happy, give Tucker hugs and kisses and then back to you and I'll be back next week. Know you'll be in our hearts forever and a day and we love and miss you terribly. Love, Daddy and Mommy

DECEMBER 14, 2009
Hello my sweet girl - yet another week's gone by missing you - making it 4 years, 1 month and 2 weeks that you've been gone and the hurt is still there. Now, about Abby..she will be going for an MRI right after the new year and then we'll go from there. We want her to have quality of life and not just laying around like a 'lump'. We want her to be able to play with her sisters, have fun in the pool and so on. If that can't be done, then she will more than likely be joining you and Tucker as much as we don't want to since she's still a pup at 6 years old. In any case, please say some extra prayers that she'll get better and have that quality that we so want for her. In the meantime, it's a hustle and bustle cause the holidays are here and we're all sad. Hopefully, the new year will be better all around. Anyway sweet girl, give Tucker some hugs and kisses and then you take some back for yourself and we'll be back next week, so til then,know we love you and you're in our hearts forever. Love, Daddy and Mommy

DECEMBER 21, 2009
Hi baby girl - back again to remind you how much we love and miss you even after 4 years, 1 month and 3 weeks. I just can't believe how fast the time is flying by..Friday is Christmas Day and you and Tucker loved Christmas..always liked your 'gifts' of rawhides, your balls and chews and stuffed animals...and we certainly miss having them under the tree for you both. Now, to something of importance..please say extra prayers for Abby and have your fur-family and friends do the same. It's getting where she really can't walk on her back legs. I honestly don't know what's going to happen until the MRI is done and that's in 2 weeks. I hope there will be something found and something that can be done but my gut feeling isn't good. Anyway, I'm still gonna pray and still gonna stay optimistic cause we love her so much and don't want her to leave us at 6 years old. In the meantime, sweet girl, you take care and give Tucker a hug and a kiss for us and you take one back for yourself. Know you will be in our hearts forever and hopefully, we'll be in yours, too. Love, Daddy and Mommy

DECEMBER 25, 2009
Sweet girl, we want to wish you a very MERRY CHRISTMAS from all of us. I wrote Tucker and wished him one too. Take care of yourself and know you are sorely missed and totally loved. Love, Daddy and Mommy

DECEMBER 28, 2009
Hi my darling Kyra - back again after Christmas to say we're still missing you so much after you're being gone 4 years and 3 days shy of 2 months..much too long. I hope Christmas was nice for you, Tucker and everyone else. Ours was quiet and a bit sad because of Abby not being able to play and have a good time with Ebony and Molly but we take her next week for her MRI and hopefully they'll give us some good news because we certainly don't want to lose her. Again, please say lots of prayers and have all the family and friends at 'the bridge' say prayers for her. Well, I think I better get going, got stuff to do so you take care and know we love and miss you terribly. Please give Tucker a hug and a kiss and you take one back from him for yourself. Til next week, Love, Daddy and Mommy

JANUARY 1, 2010
Just a quick email to wish you a very Happy New Year my darling furbaby and to remind you of how much you are loved and missed.

JANUARY 4, 2010
Hi sweet baby Kyra..well, it's the new year and again, 4 years, 2 months and 4 days later, we're still missing you terribly. Hopefully, this year will be better than 2009 - especially for Abby. I know I keep asking you and Tucker to pray for her because she's so young and can't walk, we don't want to have to lose her at 6 like we lost both of you at almost 15..she's still a baby. Anyway, just to let you know we love you dearly, miss your companionship and all your non-chalant ways..i.e. a low growl if Abby or Ebony tried to take your bone - just things like that that always made us enjoy you. Well my love, please know you will be in our hearts forever and know, too, we miss you both so much. Please say an extra prayer for Abby - she goes for her MRI tomorrow and then we'll know what the story is. Also, give Tucker a hug and a kiss and you take one back for yourself..take care my love and remember how much we love and miss you. Love, Daddy and Mommy

JANUARY 11, 2010
Hey baby girl, I'm back with some bad news regarding Abby...and, after you leaving us 4 years, 2 months and 2 weeks ago, the news is she will be joining you and Tucker sooner than we anticipated. She has an inoperable tumor wrapped around her spinal cord and it's progressing, how fast, no one knows, but her back legs and hind quarter are just about totally immobile..daddy and I have to pick her up and use a harness to help her walk with her front legs cause, as I said, the back ones just don't work. She's such a trooper - like you were - her spirit is second to none and the love and companionship she has for all of us is also second to none. What's even harder is she's so young and nothing can make her better - only worse. Please say lots of extra prayers for her and give her a sign that you and Tucker love her dearly and want her to rally. In the meantime, give Tucker a hug and a kiss and you take one back from him for yourself and know you will be in our hearts forever - we love and miss you terribly. Love, Daddy and Mommy

JANUARY 18,2010
Hi sweet Kyra - yep, another week's gone by, where's the time going, now making it 4 years, 2 months and 3 weeks since you left us..too long. Update on Abby is she's going to Dr. Schwabe tomorrow for some swim therapy and we're hoping it'll help her back legs somewhat. Dr. Schwabe is also going to see if she has a smaller saddle for the 'cart' and this way, we can put Abby into it and she can walk around herself although she still has to accept it and get used to it, something she's not too keen on. Anyway, we'll keep you posted on her progress but in the meantime, please say some extra prayers, keep her in your heart as we don't want to lose her just yet although we know the time will be coming sooner than later. Send a signal for her to rally and show everyone she wants to live. Also, give Tucker a hug and a kiss and take one back for yourself - also, throw Abby some hugs and kisses, too. Love, Daddy and Mommy

JANUARY 25, 2010
Hey baby girl - yep, another week's gone by making it 4 years and a little over 3 months ago that you left us and we're still feeling the pain and now,with Abby being sick, it's even worse. Losing you, Tucker and soon, Abby, it's more than we can handle. Hopefully to ease our hearts, you and Tucker are happy and having a good time at Rainbow Bridge. We're supposed to have another bad snowstorm starting tomorrow so we're getting everything ready, the snowblower and so on..lol. Just one more thing, please say an extra prayer for Abby that she'll keep her spirits up and continue to thrive and not let that tumor take over. We're doing everything we can, like we did for you and Tucker, so prayers are now the main issue....Anyway, sweet girl, you take care and I'll be back next week. Til then, know you're in our hearts forever and we love and miss you. Love, Daddy and Mommy

FEBRUARY 1, 2010
Hi Kyra..4 years, 3 months and 1 week since you left and it's still just as painful as if it were the first day. I certainly wish you were still here but I know sweet Jesus wanted you as one of his angels to watch over all of us and especially Abby. Anyway, hope everything is great at the bridge and you're having fun with your friends and Tucker. I'm leaving next Saturday (2/13) for NJ for baby Michael's christening. Unfortunately, daddy can't go because we can't leave Abby but Sharon will be coming down with Michael hopefully soon and daddy will bond again at that time. Also, please say a few extra prayers, again, for Abby - she can't stand on her back legs at all - but her spirit is soaring. You know how much we love her because we loved you the same. Also, give Tucker a hug and kiss and you take one back from him for yourself. Know you are loved and will be in our hearts forever. Love, Daddy and Mommy

FEBRUARY 8, 2010
Hi sweet girl - sorry I'm a bit late but like they say, better late than never. Being away from you for 4 years,3 months and 2 weeks, has taken a toll but I always think about you. This is gonna be a shorty because we have a lot of tax work to do so. Hope you're doing well and having fun with Tucker and all the rest of your family and friends. We've had so much snow down here, it's unreal and that has prevented Abby from being able to use her cart and get outside for some enjoyment other than laying on a blanket on the driveway. Her spirit is still soaring but she has such a sad look on her face all the time as if to ask 'why' is this happening. Anyway, sweet girl, please say an extra prayer for her to let her know you're thinking about her. We really don't want to let her go and be with you and Tucker but we know in time, she will. In the meantime, give Tucker a hug and a kiss for us and you take one back for yourself. Til next week, Love, Daddy and Mommy

FEBRUARY 15, 2010
Hi big girl, my sweet angel, another week's gone by making it 4 years, 3 months and almost 3 weeks ago that you went to the Bridge and we're still missing you terribly. I hope all is well and you're enjoying yourself and playing with your family and friends. We've had so much snow, I didn't even go up for Michael's christening but hopefully, Sharon will eventually understand. Hopefully, she'll bring Michael down soon so we can see him and play with him..time is so short for him to be a baby. Anyway, Abby is the same, as I said in the earlier email, if the snow would melt we would be able to get her outside and let her have some fun with her sisters...hopefully, in the next month or so...hahaha....it'll be gone. In the meantime, know how much we love and miss you. Also, please say a prayer for Abby that she doesn't get any worse cause we don't want to lose her just yet..she's still a baby. Hugs and Kisses from all of us. Love, Daddy and Mommy


FEBRUARY 22, 2010
Hi sweet Kyra - just checking in to see how our precious girl is doing and hopefully, she's doing fine. The weather down here is starting to clear up a bit but the snow is still around - probably will be for a long time. Anyway, not much is really going on except we're doing taxes - we're several down from last year at this time but maybe the clients are just gonna come a little later..if not, nothing we can do about it. Hope you're taking care of Tucker and also, hope you're saying a few extra prayers for Abby. That rotten tumor has really taken over her back legs so badly that she can't even work anymore. Dr. Schwabe feels with the acupuncture treatment, she may be able to stimulate her left hind leg (the good one) and this way, she might be able to walk...just have to wait and see. Anyway, gonna run but you take care, know how much we love and miss you and I'll beback next week. Love, Daddy and Mommy

MARCH 1, 2010
Good morning sweet girl - here it is already March and at the end of this month it will be Tucker's two-year anniversary at the bridge. I just can't believe it's that long already. And my love, it's been 4 years, 4 months and a day since we lost you, too...again, can't believe it's that long already. Anyway, it's been a bit windy the last couple of days but luckily, we didn't get any snow....yet. There's a storm moving east and if it stays on course, we'll probably get hit with a bundle of snow again...I'm so sick of it..lol. Also, Sharon and Michael might be coming down for Easter - can't wait to see them especially the little guy. He's five months today..it's so hard to believe and he's growing like a weed. Well, I think I better get going - have some tax returns to do plus I have a lot of writing for Tucker's Rainbow Residency - totally forgot a week or so but it seems I forgot 4 weeks...darn, not good. I'm gonna bring it up to date and then keep it there. One last thing and that is to please keep Abby in your prayers...her legs are totally gone and it's getting harder and harder on daddy and I to pick her up and take her out. We pray all the time that she'll get some kind of feeling in the back end - even tho we know it won't happen - and she'll be able to walk. Anyway, gonna go, so take care and know how much we love and miss you..forever in our hearts. Love, Daddy and Mommy

MARCH 8, 2010
Hey sweet girl, 4 years, 4 months and a week, that's how long ago you left us. Time is certainly not waiting for any of us. In the meantime, I hope you're doing okay and you're taking care of Tucker and he's taking care of you. Just to let you know, Abby is going to Dr. French on Monday, 3/15 because it looks as tho something is 'eating' away at her foot and I hope it isn't gangrene. Dr. French seems to think it's a tissue infection but we're taking her first thing on the 15th. In the meantime, say an extra prayer for her. I certainly don't understand why God is taking all of you from us...first Angel, then "Bucca', then you and then Tucker. Now He's going after Abby...and i don't know why. Anyway, we miss you terribly and love you even more. Give Tucker a hug and a kiss for us and take one back for yourself. Love, Daddy and Mommy

MARCH 15, 2010
Hi sweet girl..writing this before we take Abby to the vet for her foot/ankle but just wanted to tell you again how much we miss you even after 4 years, 4 months and 2 weeks...too long. Anyway, hope all is well..we had to put the clocks ahead last night so we lost an hour's sleep..tough getting old..lol, but I guess it's part of life. Hope you're doing well and looking after Tucker and all your family and friends like a good girl and making sure they all say prayers for Abby. I'll keep you posted on her condition. In the meantime, Sharon is coming down for Easter with Michael..can't wait to see him. Okay, sweetie, gonna go and do my prayer request for Abby and you and Tucker so take care and know I love you dearly...forever and a day, you will be in our hearts. Love, Daddy and Mommy

MARCH 22nd thru JULY 5th, 2010
Hi our little darling - just wanted to apologize for not writing but it's been a bit hectic with Abby and then taxtime, the kids all coming down but I'm certainly gonna try and keep up once I finish writing you today. Please forgive me, sweet girl. Love, Daddy and Mommy

MAY 15, 2010
Just wanted to wish you a happy birthday sweetheart - if you were still with us, you would have been 19 years old - wow, how great that would have been. Be happy sweet girl and know we love and miss you.

JULY 12, 2010
Hopefully sweet Kyra, I'll be back on track - Bobby, Dan and the boys were down this past week but went home Sunday, 7/10. In the meantime, prior to them coming down, Sharon came down with Michael - he is getting so big, you would have loved him. Abby is sort of holding her own although the last several days she's been very restless. Not sure if it's because of all the excitement of the kids being down or if she's hurting but we'll find out tomorrow when daddy takes her to Dr. Schwabe for her acupuncture treatment. We're taking it one day at a time and if she's in pain, we aren't going to let her suffer - it's not fair - and I won't do to her what I did to you and for that, I am again, so sorry. Here's hoping all is well with you and Tucker and all your family and friends. Please give everyone a hug and kiss for us and I'll hopefully be back next week, so til then. Love, Daddy and Mommy

JULY 19 and 26, 2010
Hi baby girl..time has just passed me by and I am so sorry about that. I wasn't here to write to you but I just want you to know we still love you and miss you terribly. After losing Abby on July 15th, things are in such a turmoil...Ebony misses her sister so much that she's not been eating and just lays around on the spot Abby laid. Take care my angel and be happy til we meet again. Love, Daddy and Mommy

AUGUST 2, 2010
Dearest sweet Kyra - I'm back with tears in my eyes thinking of you, Tucker and Abby. It's been a hard last few years losing all of you but it's been such a happy time remembering how much love all of you gave us and the fun we all had together. I know one day, we will all be together again but in the meantime, run pain free, take care of Tucker and Abby and hugs and kisses to all of you. Love, Daddy and Mommy

AUGUST 9, 2010
Hi baby girl - just wanted to say hi and remind you of how much we love and miss you..I can't believe it'll be 5 years soon that you had to leave us..and although I felt it wasn't fair that God wanted you, at least you had a fulfilling life of almost 15 years and we enjoyed every second of it with you. Take care my love and know you will be in our hearts forever. Love, Daddy and Mommy

AUGUST 16, 2010
Hi our 'gracious little lady'..another week's gone by of the tears, missing you, loving you and as usual, wishing you were here with us. Of course, I know one day we will all be together. Take care sweet girl, give a hug and kiss to Tucker and Abby and take one back for yourself. You will be in our hearts forever. Love, Daddy and Mommy

AUGUST 23, 2010
Ahhh, here I am again, your pain in the tail mom..lol. Just wanted to check in and see how you're doing and to let you know daddy and I have been a bit under the weather - I guess we have a stomach virus, who knows, but we certainly wish it would leave real soon. It seems a lot of people have this. Also, even tho it's not really Bobby's b'day til the 28th, Danielle had a surprise party for him Saturday. Haven't heard from anyone so we don't know how it went..maybe one of them will call us soon..who knows. Anyway sweet one, take care and as usual, we miss you terribly and love you even more. Love, Daddy and Mommy

AUGUST 30, 2010
Hi girl...missing you as usual, goes without saying. Just wanted to say hi and hope you're doing really well - watching over Tucker and Abby and making sure they're okay. Not much is going on around here - Ebony is enjoying the pool but with the strain in her shoulder, she's not swimming after the ball as much...sorta reminds me of you sitting on the steps of the pool...lol. Gonna say 'see you later' cause I want to do Tucker and Abby's Rainbow Bridge Residencies and then do all 3 of you for tonite's prayer request. In the meantime, enjoy and know we love and miss you terribly and you will be in our hearts forever. Love, Daddy and Mommy

SEPTEMBER 6, 2010
"Happy Labor Day" sweetheart - as usual, missing you is still tugging at our apron strings. We wish you were still here with us although we know you could never have withstood the pain and for that, I am sorry you had to go thru so much because of my greediness. Things are okay - Ebony's thyroid is still sluggish so Dr. French upped her meds so we'll see what happens. One good thing is she's losing some weight but she has a lot more to go. Anyway, gonna run now cause I have lots to do, i.e. I have to do Tucker and Abby's and then I have to do the prayer request so take care sweet girl and know how much we love you. Love, Daddy and Mommy

SEPTEMBER 13, 2010
Hey big girl - what's going on with our darling little girl..anything good? I'm not sure if I told you back sometime ago - Dr. Hudson has an inoperable brain tumor, just like you had - not sure how he's doing, haven't heard anything so keep him in your prayers. Oh, we're gonna close the pool on Thursday - Bobby is coming up to help daddy and possibly dad's friend, Dave, from Charley's and his friend Antoine, are also supposed to help, so we'll see. Anyway, got laundry to do so take care and know how much we love and miss you - in our hearts forever and a day. Love, Daddy and Mommy

SEPTEMBER 20, 2010
Hi sweetheart - back again to keep reminding you of how much we love and miss you. Daddy is at the 4-county fair today helping set up and I'm going there tomorrow - yep, my birthday - with my friend Mary and we'll walk around looking at the animals, the rides and all the rest of the good stuff and then get a bite to eat at the fire department's booth and then home. I'm waiting for Dr. French to call back with Ebony's urinalysis results and then go from there. In the meantime, I have to finish shampooing the carpets so you take care, hugs and kisses to you, Tucker and Abby and again, we love and miss you terribly. Love, Daddy and Mommy

SEPTEMBER 27, 2010
Hi baby girl - here's hoping all is well with you and since it's now fall, that you're feeling pretty good, not sweating so much and probably just lounging around..hopefully, anyway. As I told you last week, daddy is working the 5-county fair along with a couple of other firemen - only the oldies are working but that was same way when he was in Southard..nothing changes. I went up there on Saturday with Mary from across the street and enjoyed ourselves. Oh, on Saturday it was my birthday so it was a little more special - of course it would have been much better had you, Tucker and Abby been here but I know you were in spirit. Anyway, gotta run so you take care and know you'll be in our hearts forever. Love, Daddy and Mommy

OCTOBER 4, 2010
Hey baby girl - back again checking in to make sure you're doing okay. I guess you're running around with tucker and Abby and all your new friends having a ball or maybe your just hanging around, whichever, as long as you're happy. The fellow for the driveway will be here on Wednesday to fix the cracks and reseal it so that'll be good especially before the cold weather starts. Daddy will have to start with the basement again...sheesh, that's a never ending battle either. All we can do is plug along. Well baby, you take care and please give a hug and kiss to Tucker and Abby and one of each for yourself. Love, Daddy and Mommy

OCTOBER 11, 2010
Hi girl - as usual, checking in to see how you're doing and to remind you again how much we love and miss you. You were our angel and now you're God's little angel. Please take care and watch over Tucker and Abby - please give them hugs and kisses and you, too. Love, Daddy and Mommy

OCTOBER 18, 2010
Hi sweet girl - another week's gone by and it'll soon be your 5th anniversary in Rainbow Bridge heaven. Hope all is well...yesterday daddy and I took Ebony and Molly and went to the open house at the SPCA..nope, didn't bring home any furbabies - just can't, but it was a nice venture. Today I'll probably mow the 'weeds and dirt' and then, who knows, maybe iron. Daddy will probably weedwhack and then we'll both fall over from being old...lol. Anyway, you have a wonderful day, take care and know you are loved, missed and in our hearts forever. Love, Daddy and Mommy

OCTOBER 31, 2010
Happy 5th anniversary in heaven and Rainbow Bridge my darling sweet Kyra...missing you and loving you even more goes unending. Be happy sweet one. Love, Daddy and Mommy

NOVEMBER 1 - NOVEMBER 29,2010
Hi baby girl - I know it's been awhile since I've written and I'm really sorry. It's been a bit hectic around here so please forgive me and I will try and be better about writing. We're going to NJ for Christmas and leaving Ebony and Molly for the first time since before we lost Tucker so it's gonna be a challenge although I'm sure they'll be fine but please watch over them while we're gone. You my sweet one, will be with us from here to eternity and loving you and missing you goes beyond reproach...in our hearts forever and a day. Til I write again, be happy, run, romp and have fun with your sisters, brother, cousins and friends. Love, Daddy and Mommy

NOVEMBER 30, 2010 - MARCH 25, 2011
Hi darling Kyra - I am sooooo very sorry I haven't written since your anniversary but it's been crazy around here. We went to NJ for Christmas and daddy and I along with Ebony were all sick coming home and we had to finally go to the doctor and get antibiotics, yep for all 3 of us. The day after we left, they got over 25 inches of snow...better than than us. We picked your sisters up on the way home from the kennel and got stuck in such a bad storm...finally got home and that's where we're staying. Had a nice Christmas although we missed you, Tucker and Abby so much. Started taxes in January and we're still working on them, they're coming in slow and it's got us concerned because were about 45 down from last year..not good. A couple of weeks ago, we had to replace the hot water heater and now we have a leak in the bathroom wall...never a dull moment. Okey, dokey sweetheart, that's about all around here. Take care of yourself, Tucker and Abby and know we love you and miss you all sooooo much. Hugs and kisses darling. Love, Daddy and Mommy

OCTOBER 31, 2011
Dearest baby girl - Just a little Happy 6th Birthday in Heaven and at the Bridge - it is your 6th birthday away from us - if you were still here so we could love you, you would have been 20 years old - WOW, maybe one day that could happen, one never knows.

MARCH 25, 2011 - DECEMBER 25, 2011
Dearest Sweet Kyra - MERRY CHRISTMAS - It's been so long since I wrote and really, there was no excuse except I think I was lazy but hurting which again, was no excuse. Anyway, we went to Uncle Mike and Aunt Donna's in September to celebrate my, daddy and little Michael's birthdays and had a good time. Nothing out of the ordinary has been going on except we miss you, Tucker and Abby so much. We also hope you had a good Christmas, again w/ Tucker and Abby and all your friends at the Bridge and hopefully, you all ran and played together. One day when God says it's time, we all be together and I know you and your brother and sister will be waiting at the gates for us. Til we chat again, know how much we love you, miss you and wish you were still here. Love, Daddy and Mommy XOXOXO

JANUARY 1, 2012 - SEPTEMBER 23, 2012
Our sweetest baby girl, Kyra, we miss you terribly. Lots has gone on throughout the year, we went to NJ for Teeks' First Holy Communion in May and then Karen came down for a few days in July and then August, Bobby, Dan and the boys came down for a week but in the middle of it, they went to Busch Gardens. Prior to that, they lost Rudy, the tough old guy really tried hard to continue but it just got too much so he's there at the Bridge with you, Tuck and Abby. Birthdays this year were the girls in March, they turned 47 and Bobby in August, he turned 42 - wow, time is flying by. RJ was 11 in March, Teeks will be 9 in December and Michael will be 3 on September 28th. Your 'cousin' Chris had a little girl, Rebekha and her brother Mike Jr. got married yesterday, 9/22. Daddy and I will be 70 this year, me on Tuesday, 9/25 and daddy a week later on 10/3..wow, I just can't believe where the time has gone. We had a very dry/drought like weather all summer and temperatures hit over 100 for many days but it's cooling down a bit - of course, today we have the AC on cause it's warm outside. Ebony still looks for the pool but we keep telling her it went to 'sleep' for the winter and she looks at us as tho to say, why...and of course, Molly - whom you don't know - is still a little, actually big, pistol..she loves to run and tease Ebony by taking the ball from her...all and all, everyone is doing good, trying to keep busy and stay healthy and always thinking about you, Tucker and Abby. In the meantime, you take care, get ready for the fall and then Christmas and I'll write again soon. Always remember how much we love and miss you and wish, as usual, you were still with us. Love, Daddy and Mommy XOXOXOX

SEPTEMBER 24, 2012 - JUNE 21, 2014
Hi Kyra - our gracious little lady - haven't written in so long, where the time has gone I don't know and with everything that has happened, no wonder. There's so much to tell that I would be here for days if not longer so I decided to start from today and move forward at least once a month updating you on all the goings on. In the meantime, happy first day of summer today, 6/21/14, and hoping you're having fun in the sun with your sister and brother and all your other friends...running, romping sitting on the steps of the pool or the water somewhere. I just want you to enjoy yourself as you would have were you still with us. Take care and I'll be in touch. Know how much we miss you and love you even more. Love, Daddy and Mommy XOXO

JUNE 22, 2014 - SEPTEMBER 4, 12014
Kyra - In such a short time since I wrote you back in June, Bobby, Dan and the boys came for a visit which was enjoyable..the boys got so big and I'm sure you would have enjoyed them. I'm still trying to get back to therapy but having a hard time - I'll get there eventually, lol. The summer has been very hot and humid - no one even wanted to go in the pool except for Ebony and her ball..and now, we don't even have her - she went to Rainbow Bridge a little more than 3 weeks ago and it's so hard not seeing her or playing with her in the pool or just taking a walk. Molly misses her terribly but at least we know she isn't in any pain any longer. Please take care of your sisters and big brother and know how much we miss you and love you even more. Be back soon. Love, Daddy and Mommy XOXO

SEPTEMBER 5, 2014 - OCTOBER 3, 2014
Hi Kyra, our gracious little lady. Not too much has been going on since I wrote you last month. We still ask why we had to lose your sister, Ebony, so young and full of life but who are we to question God. We finally closed the pool since we don't have anyone to use it but daddy and I - Molly and Dixie want no part of it. Hopefully, I can get back to working on Ebony's album - I've just been so down after losing her that I just didn't want to get it together, basically like I was when we lost you, Tucker and Abby. Guess I'll get back to it soon. Well, I have to change your residency scenery to fall so you take care and I'll be back again soon. Always remember how much we love you. Oh by the way, today is daddy's birthday and I know you, your sisters and brother wish him a Happy Birthday. Love, Daddy and Mommy XOXO
