Happy Birthday, My Love


Today would have been Alleen's 49th birthday. It snowed all day, the boys just moped around not wanting to get cold and wet. There is an empty feeling hanging around the ol' abode. We have the tree up (eventually even she conceded to putting it up before her birthday, after the boys got older), it's decorated, but the house is still empty. Tuesday would have been our 14th anniversary. I'll take the day off to do some Christmas shopping. I'll probably eat at one of our favorite places, Cafe Rio. There is so much I miss about her it is hard to say them all. I just miss her. Happy Birthday Alleen. I love you!

Thank you for your tribute. I can well imagine the emptiness you feel. Her birthday brought back memories and I felt sadness all day. It is comforting to know that she is with our Dad and grandparents.

Missing her still.

Thinking of all of you.

Hoping this Christmas doesn't bring you down...I know Alleen would want you to all remember the happy moments you had with her and share the love.

Putting an extra special angel ornament on my tree....named it Alleen.

HUGS!!!

David,
I am so sorry. We all miss her so much.

You will be glad to know that Alleen's "Glass Half Full" layout is in the January 2008 issue of Memory Makers magazine. I am so happy for her!!

The first year without our loved one is the hardest. We miss her too--she left a gap at the pub that will not be filled, but our loss certainly pales to yours! My prayers come to you for a joyful Christmas, which is what Alleen would wish for you and the kids.
