Kimberly came over Wednesday to spend the night and celebrate the 4th of July.  We grilled chicken kabobs, made a canvas and memory box.  I had not been feeling well since getting my shots on Monday....afraid I was a little grumpy, but we still enjoyed our time together.

Jennifer had made quite a few videos....she always took a lot of pictures too.  Kimberly had the tapes transferred to DVD's, but we couldn't get them to play on the laptop, for some reason.  She got a portable DVD player and it worked perfectly.  I can't tell you how much it means to me to be able to hear voices of our loved ones who have passed.  Most of the time, Jennifer was taking the videos, but every now and then, there would be a glimpse of her.  It was so awesome to be able to hear her sweet voice, laugh and even her cough.  This is the greatest thing ever.  There were a lot of tapes with her godchildren and cousins too.  Pete was never a big talker, but his voice was there at times.  There was a great day recorded of Kimberly, Pete, Dustin and Jason playing golf and Jennifer was their caddy!  It seems like only yesterday, Abbi was the little girl in the videos. 

My heart is aching for them today, but will always cherish these tapes and being able to hear their voices, like it was yesterday!

God is good and He is good ALL the time!!!
