Dear mrs. Volkes

my condolences for your loss. I am an anthropology student from Finland and I am studying these virtual memorial sites in my master's thesis to understand the meaning of these memorials in a larger scale. I have some questions I would like to send you, if you would be so kind to answer? Please e-mail me if you are interested in helping me on this matter.

           ;         The Best

God saw you getting tired And a cure was not to be. So He put His arms around you And whispered, “Come to Me.” With tearful eyes we watched you, And saw you pass away. Although we loved you dearly, We could not make you stay. A golden heart stopped beating, Hard working hands at rest. God broke our hearts to prove to us, He only takes the best.

I Love You Mom , I Miss You  with all my Heart and Soul every minute of my waking hours.

Daughter Debra OXOXOXOX

Hi Mom,

I haven't visited you here in few weeks, but I visit you every day in my heart, and speak to you every day. I hope you hear me. 's beenery hect a v

My life has been so hectic. Not in a good way, I am sorry to tell you, but I am putting it behind me, and I am back.

Things are ok. I just miss you so much. It still feels like yesterday that you left, and soon it will be two years. Two horrible years without you Mom.

I wish I could see some light at the end of this gloomy tunnel I seem to be in. I still an't believe your gone. I walk pass your room, and still I get this ill feeling that comes over me. It all still feels like a bad dream.

I wish it was a bad dream. I cannot think of anything that would please me more than you see you again.

I can't even see my keyboard anymore, because my eyes are filled with tears.

I Love You Mom With All My Heart & Soul

I Miss You More Than I Can Express

Dear Mom Sophia,

Thinking of you all the time. I miss the good times, the laughs, and all the fun we had.

I am so glad I got to know you for as long as I did. You filled my life with joy that I will never, ever forget.

No one could ask for a better Mom. Your daughter Sheri has become some cook. You would be proud of her.

Sorry I haven't wrote sooner.

Rest Well. Til we meet again...

Love you always, Keith

P.S. You would be so proud of how well Sheri is doing in school. I am very proud of her.

Hi Mom, I was listening to the song you always sang & I thought I post it on your site,


I'm Like A Bird"

You're beautiful, that's for sure
You'll never ever fade
You're lovely but it's not for sure
That I won't ever change
And though my love is rare
Though my love is true

I'm like a bird, I'll only fly away
I don't know where my soul is, I don't know where my home is
(and baby all I need for you to know is)
I'm like a bird, I'll only fly away
I don't know where my soul is , I don't know where my home is
All I need for you to know is

Your faith in me brings me to tears
Even after all these years
And it pains me so much to tell
That you don't know me that well
And though my love is rare
Though my love is true

I'm like a bird, I'll only fly away
I don't know where my soul is, I don't know where my home is
(and baby all I need for you to know is)
I'm like a bird, I'll only fly away
I don't know where my soul is , I don't know where my home is
All I need for you to know is

It's not that I wanna say goodbye
It's just that every time you try to tell me that you love me
Each and every single day I know
I'm going to have to eventually give you away
And though my love is rare
And though my love is true
Hey I'm just scared
That we may fall through
yea  yea  yea

I'm like a bird, I'll only fly away
I don't know where my soul is, I don't know where my home is
(and baby all I need for you to know is)
I'm like a bird, I'll only fly away
I don't know where my soul is , I don't know where my home is

Your Mother is always with you. ...

She's the whisper of the leaves as you walk down the street;

she's the smell of bleachin your freshly laundered socks;

she's the cool hand on your brow when you're not well.

Your Mother lives inside your laughter.

And she's crystallized in every tear drop.

She's the place you came from, your first home;

and she's the map you follow with every step you take.

She's your first love and your first heartbreak,

and nothing on earth can separate you.

Not time, not space... not even death!

Dear Mom, 

Happy Memorial Day 


I hope and Pray that your day was wonderful .

Love you with all my HEART & SOUL

Untill we are together again

Your Daughter

Hi Mom

Thinking Of You And Missing You So Very Much

I wish you were here. My world seems so empty without you.

Dad went home yesterday. He stayed with me after his surgery and kept me pretty busy. lol  Classes are ok. I just started another one which I am excited about because I have been looking forward to this class. I am doing well in school but the assignments take up so much of my time. I am looking forward to my break after this class. I could really use it.

I Miss you Mom & think of you constantly. I hope you had a wonderful Mother's Day. I know it wasn't the same without us but I still hope you had a great time with NaNa & Beverly.

Not a day goes by without you in my thoughts. There are so many days that I wake up still expecting to see you. It still doesn't feel real. I know I will see you again. I know this in my heart. But, until then.... please don't worry about us. Please keep us close as we keep you so very close in our hearts, our minds and in our lives.

You are always with us Mom... Always!

 Precious Mother

I Wish I Could See You One More Time
Come Walking Through My Door
But, I Know That Is Impossible
I Will Hear Your Voice No More
I Know You Can Feel My Tears
And You Don't Want Me To Cry
Yet, My Heart Is Broken
Because I Can't Understand Why
Someone So Precious Had To Die
I Pray That God Will Give Me Strength
And Somehow Get Me Through
As I Struggle With This Heartache
That Was Caused By Losing You

In Precious Memory Of Sophia Di Meglio
Who Walked Through Heaven's Gate
September 26,2006

Happy Mother's Day

I Love You with all my HEART & SOUL

Missing you more than I could ever express. I hope you are enjoying your special day with Nana D, Nana V, Beverly, Irene and all our VM Angel Moms.

I hope you liked the beautiful Heart of Flowers we left for you today. Keith bought me a beautiful gift in your memory. It is two adorable bears hugging. One represents you and one represents me or Momma & Daughter Bears. It has a lovely plaque saying "Me & Momma". It is so adorable. I will  treasure it always.

To My Beautiful Mother Who I Miss More & More Each Day.

I planted flowers the other day Mom & you were in my thoughts when I went to the nursery and as I planted them. I was thinking about how you would explain how to plant them and I started to laugh when I recalled you telling me, I pushed the roots too far down in the soil or I put them too close together and doing so will have them too close together when they grow. I remember that look on your face. That look of "What in the world are you doing". I miss doing these things with you Mom. We always went to the nursery together to pick out flowers and we always planted them together. It was so much fun then. Now I do it with a heavy heart.

Time does not lessen the sadness I feel. Times does not make me miss you less. I miss you more & more each day. Time does not heal anything Mom. It's all nonsense. Sometimes, I want to scream because I miss you so much and at times I feel you are right here with me.

I Love You Mom. No one will ever understand the love and admiration I have for you. I really do believe it's beyond most people's comprehension, because not many are as lucky to have a Mom like you.

You are always in my thoughts. Not a day, not a minute goes by without thoughts of you.

I Love You & Miss You more than I could ever express. Sending HUGS & KISSES XXX OOO

Love, Sheri

Hi Sheri. Can you tell me the name of the song and who sings it that you are dedicating it to your Mom. I would appreciate it. I just love that song too. Thank You.

04-27-2008 9:35 PM -- By: Gloria,  From: Oregon  

Hi. I lost my Precious Mother on July 22, 2007 to renal failure, diabetes, and congestive heart failure. She was 79 years old.  it is so very hard losing your Mother. I was very close to my Mom too. She also  was my very best friend . It helps to look at my Momma's pictures on the wall, and I also burn a candle every day in memory of my Sweet Mother. I know she is in Heaven now, and no longer suffering which I am thankful for. It is still hard not talking to her or seeing her. I took care of my Momma for three years and was so happy to do that for her. Last Thanksgiving, Christmas, 2007 was very difficult, Easter was hard and Mother's Day will be very difficult as family gathered to be with our Sweet Mother. I am actually dreading Mother's Day. Even though, I have three daughters, twelve grandchildren, I still miss my Mother so very much.

Hi Mom, I Miss you so much, there are so many things going on and all I could think about is that I wish you where here with us. I  LOVE YOU MOM, Everyday is just so hard...

Hi Mom,

Not a day goes by that you are not in my thoughts. I miss you so very much, and my heart remains broken. My only wish is that you are at peace, happy ,and know how much I wish you were here.

My life forever changed the day you were taken from us, and I know I will never be the same. Please know that although you are gone, you are with me, in my heart. ALWAYS!

Please wish me luck tomorrow. I know you will be there with me, but I am a wreck right now, and hope that it is nothing serious.


With all my heart & soul and I miss you more than I could ever express.

All my love, Sheri

I lost my mom, even though I know she is in Heaven, (so she is not really lost). August 1, 2007 to cancer. Im only 35. I hurt so bad Sometimes I don't think I can handle not seeing her or speaking to her ever again. We were so very, very close. Im miserable without her. How do you cope?
