My Brother’s Son


I’m so lucky to be surrounded by so many wonderful people. Everyday I’m in awe of the beautiful email messages, texts and phone calls from friends and family wanting to know how I’m feeling and people stopping by to show their support.

A few weeks ago one of my nephews sent all of my kids and I a beautiful message on Facebook that I would like to share because it made me so proud for so many reasons.

Dear Chad, Kelly, Corey and Bryan,

As I sit and reminisce on the way things used to be and the way I wish things were, time and time again you Lamberts come to mind.

“Love your family. Spend time, be kind and serve one another. Make no room for regrets. Tomorrow is not promised and today is short.”

Author Unknown

I read this quote and think of you guys. The bond you have with one another is amazing. The memories I have of all of you and the stories I hear tell me that each and every one of you will have little to no regrets in life and attempt to live life to the fullest. Not everyone can say that, me included. Your family will make anyone who knows you question their level of happiness. You all have made an enormous impact on my life and know I love each and every one of you. Know that you are all in our thoughts and prayers.


Aunt Rosemary,

I wish there were words to describe how much I love you and how much you mean to me. My life would not be same had you not been a part of it. I often think of the morning my dad passed and you were the first person I saw. Besides my mom I couldn’t have asked for a better person to be by my side. I don’t believe I’ve thanked you for that and it’s better late than never. So thank you. And thank you for always being there for me and being such an amazing person and an awesome aunt. Yet sometimes hard to believe, I believe things happen for a reason and God would never give us things we could not handle. And there’s not a woman stronger to handle what you have to handle.

You’re amazing. Again there are no words to describe the love that I have for my sweet angel of an Aunt Rosemary but I sure wish there were. I love you very much and you’re in my prayers.


I receive these beautiful messages every single day and I so wish I could share each and every one of them because they all truly mean a lot to me.

A simple thank you just doesn’t seem like enough.
