Letters to Kristofer

Dear Kris,

We know that you were with us the night of the tornado. That is the only way we made it back home after coming up from the church basement after the storm. I know that you saw the devastation that was left behind and that you must've told God, "They might not be able to take anymore, so please save Danielle and their house." Thanks Kris, but you forgot to mention the CAR! LoL After seeing what we had walked through the next morning, I know with out a doubt that you were walking with us that night as be picked our way back to the house. Tell God thank you for the family he gave us as we were blessed with the best family in the world. I love and miss you Kris. We checked on you at the cemetry and your head stone hadn't been damaged even though Jen had to climb through the pine trees to find it. Your flowers hadn't moved at all. What a miracle.

I love You .....Mom

Dear Kris,

It's a beautiful day this morning. It's cloudy and it's raining. My kind of weather. As I sit here typing I can hear the birds outside and the soft sound of the falling rain. Days like these make me both happy and sad. I find myself thinking about you on quiet days like this. I must've asked myself a million times why? Why would God give you to us and then take you back so quickly without warning. We were visiting with a cousin of mine this past Sunday. She too had lost a young son. He was about 26 when he was taken away. As I listened to her talk about him my heart felt like breaking for her as I know how she iwas feeling. She talked so freely about her son just the way we do about you. Sometimes people are a little uncomfortable when we talk about you and I know that they are wondering how we can talk about you as if you are still here. Until, you lose a child it's impossible to understand how a parent feels after the loss of a child. People might tell you they understand, but the really don't. I feel like I have this gaping hole in my heart that nothing will ever fill. I feel like I'm just going through the motions of living not for myself but the rest of my family. I sometimes feel like going to the cemetery and bringing you back home but reality hits me and I know that I can't. Amy, told me something the other day that made me stop and think. Remember the letter Brandon wrote to you recently? Well, she asked him why he hadn't told you about his new baby brother and his reply to her was, "Kris already knows about him because he's the one that sent him to us." What a beautiful thought. I really believe that you are watching out for all of us and each one of us will receive exactly what we need to help us cope with this horrible pain. Well, I must get ready for work (Dad's already there). I think our new business is what you sent to us. You knew it would fill the endless hours we endure each and every day. Kris, I miss you so much and I love you with all my heart. I hope your days are beautiful and that you are truly happy............Love, Mom

Dear Kristofer,

Well today Danielle is making her confirmation. She chose you as her saint. It will be the first time a girl has chosen a boy for her saint. All of your other sister's ised the name Monica like I did, but Dani wanted to use Kristofer instead in honor of you. I thought that was so special. She wrote a beautiful letter to the Bishop talking about you. I know that you are watching over her today and always.......Love, Mom

Just thinking a lot about you lately! I know your in a much better place just wishing it wasn't the end on earth! We all miss you so much! We were just telling fun stories about you tonight! It helps so much to be able to talk about you and remember all the great memeories that we all had with you for all those years! I'm sure you already know that Bethanie's Birthday is tomorrow, I know her Mom needs a visit from her, hopefully you all can make this happen! There's nothing worse than having your child beat you up to heaven! I hope your days are filled with joy and happiness every single day!

I heard a song by Rascal Flatts today..."Here comes Goodbye" it's about a Mother who loses her little boy... and at the end the Dad asked the little boy what it's like up in heaven and he replied, " There's No Good byes!" Such a sad song...it so reminded me of you and Mom! Not sure I can watch the video again because it was so sad but it's a great song! I'll always think of you when I hear it! Well have a great one! We all love ya!

Kris, Could you wish Bethanie a Happy Birthday for me? She is turning 10, could you just let her know I miss her dearly...
