I sat with  Lazarus and watched the new year come in on TV. 
The next day Albe came over and fixed me an awesome New Year's dinner. 
Chicken, macaroni and cheese, mixed vegetables and Italian bread. 
 
January 3rd, 2011
Went over to the house and watered dad's plant. Yes it is still growing. The house wasn't that cold either. Well we have no snow, so maybe that is why.
Miss you both.
 
Lazarus turns 1 today. Jan. 8th

Facebook posting reminded me of today.
‎3 yrs old: "Mommy, I love you". 10 yrs old "Mom whatever!" 16 yrs old: "My mom is so annoying"! 18 yrs old: "I wanna leave this house". 25 yrs old: "Mom, you were right". 30 yrs old: "I wanna go back to my Mom's house". 50 yrs old: "I don't wanna lose my Mom". 61 yrs old: "I would ...give up EVERYTHING for my Mom to be here with me". You only have 1 Mom. Post this on your wall if you appreciate & love your mom ♥

I miss you mom.

Dear Margaret
I did not know, she was a good friend, I just wanted to say
With Sympathy on the Loss of Your Mother
There is a sense in which your Mother will always be with you...in her love, through your memories and a part of who you are.
With fond memories

My friend Sue came up for the day. Her and my mom used to go get Chinese and geocache when she was in town.  We sat in my mom's house and reminisced.
Then she took me to S & S Buffet for supper. It was fun. Sue said the coffee was lousy, but the frog legs were good.

Sun is out so Mary and I went to the cemetery.  Had to park on the road as the driveway was not plowed yet. Should have brought a shovel, the snow covered the headstone. My grandmother's favorite flower is a chrysanthemum and my mom used to give her mums for her flowerbox every year. Brought this plant in memory of both of them.
Miss you both.
 

February 2, 2011
Today is an historic day for me and Erie PC Distribution.  I have owned and worked at this business since 1995. Today I went into partnership with my son Albert and my tech Amanda.  

 

We are now equal owners. I want this business to be here long after I am gone, and I don't want the government getting their share in inheritance taxes. So my decision is a selfish one. When my time comes, my share will be divided between the remaining partners and not part of my estate.
I  think my parents would be pleased with my decision. Thanks for all  the help mom and dad. 
I love you.
 
February 17, 2011
ELEVEN MONTHS AGO
I received a phone call from my Aunt Shirley. She told me of the accident and said I needed to come down to the hospital.
That was the beginning.  If I could go back to that day I think I would have done things differently. I know ultimately that my mom would have passed away. 
I still agree that she was in too much pain and it was her choice. Although I miss her terribly. If I could change anything that would be it. Maybe if I had taken her Geocaching more often or spent more time with her.  But I think that is guilt. Guilt because I miss her and although we had fights and disagreements on how to do  things, I know she loved me and I know she knows I loved her.
She is with my dad and she is happy.
 

2/20/2011 Visited my mom and dad today and left some pretty flowers. 

 
February 22, 2011 at 2:30 pm 
Estate of Anna Mae Fuller is SETTLED.
(finally)  It took exactly 335 days. May my mother rest in peace.
 
February 27, 2011
Seven years since my dad passed away. I hear him still. He helps me with everyday decisions.
Just because someone leaves this world, they don't leave you. They are just on The Other Side.

Mr. and Mrs. William Fuller

 

March 2, 2011

Sixty-five years ago Alpha and Myrtle Case acknowledge the marriage of their second daughter Anna Mae Fuller to a farmer from McKean, Pa., William Reed Fuller, the oldest son of Perry and Celia Fuller.
 I don't know if it was in the paper or if any announcement was made.
Anna Mae and William went to city hall and their marriage was witnessed by Willie and Kathryn Bates.  Don't know if they had a reception of family and friends. Don't know if Anna Mae had a bridal shower or William had a bachelor party, but I do know that they were together till death did they part. 
Sixty-five years later, they are together again.

Happy Anniversary Mom and Dad

 Received this card from Nancy Dusckas . It was a nice gesture.

Our thoughts are with you at this time.
It is our sincere hope that during the past year,
 the prayers of family and friends have brought you
 comfort, peace of mind and heart.
We hope they will continue to do so as you 
gain strength in the days ahead.

Sincerely,
Nancy Dusckas 

Dusckas Funeral Home has assisted my family and friends all my life. I am glad that there is a local business / friend that we can count on.

Its been a year since the accident. I added a blue bird to the collection of mementos at the grave. This has been one long year. 
 

 
March 23, 2011
Last year at this time I said my last goodbye to my mom. My cousin John Walmer officiated her funeral service and did a fine job. Wish I would have thought ahead and recorded all his kind words. But those of us that were there, remember it well.  I didn't really cry because she told me it was going to be alright, and she would be with my dad and they would be watching over us. I never doubted for a minute. This past year I heard their voice and felt their love in everything I did. It is so comforting to know that even though they are not here physically they are still with me.  I do cry at times because I think, as a daughter I could have done more for her and ask her forgiveness. I also ask forgiveness from my family and friends that have put up with me through all of this, and thank you so much for the support.

Forgive me Daddy. My unsuccessful green thumb couldn't keep your plant alive. After six years of surviving with the tender loving care from my mom, and one year in my care. Its gone. Possibly the winter, although I kept the heat on, visits and watering and just plain love wasn't enough. I am sorry
 
I Listen to this song most days on the way to work. Found it and wanted to share it here.   Here's the video.
 

I miss you Daddy.

 
May 19, 2011
Fourteen months today Mom.  Think its about time I did something with your house.  I put an ad on craigslist for a handyman/professional.  Asking for someone that could do some repairs/renovating.  Anthony from down Shirley's way replied.
So I met with Anthony and Mike and showed them your house.   renovation.htm    Pictures I took on day one.  They are working today. Don't worry mom, dad is there with him. 
 
May 21, 2011
Paul Fuller's memorial today. I will attend and then post photos on his page. here's a link.
 

June 5, 2011

Hey mom, today is Nancy's birthday. I stopped by the cemetery

really sorry, I can't seem to make anything grow like you did. So I got some cut flowers and placed them there. I love you two.
Sorry no green thumb here.
and then went to Independence Court where she stays. She wasn't there but I left a gift from you and me.  Found a card with a cow on it. I laughed, you use to call her Moo.
or she called you Moo. but it was a cute card and it was just right. I signed your name.
Gave her a blue muumuu with white dots on it.
 
June 11, 2011
Work done, I went out to visit Aunt Olive. She has some beautiful flowers growing in her front yard, she gave me three to take to the cemetery.

Happy Father's Day Dad
Today I need to Thank You again for my life and for all you did and didn't do for me in the 61 years I have been here.
Not that I understood all the No's. I realize that it made me the person I am today, and Now, I thank you.
 
June 28, 2011
Just found out that Babe died during the night last night. I know she missed you mom, and when she went to live with Aunt Virginia and her birds, she had problems adjusting but she finally fit in. Now one year three months later she is now with you and dad.
Chirp loud Babe and be happy.

June 29, 2011
Renovation resumes today.  Photos
 
 
Got my feelings hurt today. The cache next to my house was overgrown with weeds (I was away for 13 days) and this guy came by and found it. I was in the driveway and he said I knew your mom. She would have never let a cache get this messed up, and the one on the corner is wet and full of ants. I said i will fix it. After he left I cleaned 17th is Gone.
 
July 2, 2011
Stopped at the cemetery.
Brought a bouquet of flowers and a dragonfly solar light to add to the mementos.
I miss you mom and dad.

 

July 9th
Seems Sunday is the best day to update this page. At least recently. I stopped out to see Bill Millspaw but no one was home. The house was all open. There was no car in the driveway. I figure I will give him a call during the week. Took some flowers out and replaced the ones from the 2nd. Left daddy's token.
Came back home to watch Harry Potter movies on TV. The new one comes out next weekend. Will go with Albert and Terry.
Love you both.

     
     

July 16, 2011
As I sit waiting for the cable guy to come to hook up cable at your house, your sister Shirley calls me to tell me that Uncle John passed away.
I started a page for him on Life Ever After and told him to tell you hello.  He's with Kitty now, and happy.

     

July 19, 2011
Sixteen months ago I said goodbye. It was so hard, I talked to you everyday. I waited for replies to my questions and cried because you were gone. I blamed myself for not spending more time with you mom. I was glad for you that you were with daddy and I know that made you happy. I still miss you. I still talk to you. Working on your house I feel you and daddy there. I keep changing my mind on what to renovate, what to replace or what to add. Daddy, I need your thoughts on this. I know you think I am crazy for spending the money on the house. But, its better than blowing it.  Mom, people are saying its a shame that the house couldn't have been fixed up while you were alive.  It could have been, but you were content with it the way it was. You did repairs, but there was only so much you could do. I have help, and thank you for the opportunity to make your ideas come true.

   
     

 Mom, this is one of the trees you planted in my yard by the road. As I was putting the car away I noticed it had flowers on it, so I took this picture. I put it on FaceBook and Karen told me it was called the Rose of Sharon and its a bush. Well, it bloomed in my yard, and I know you had to have made it happen because I can't grow anything, even plastic flowers die on me.  I love you mom.

     
Sunday July 31, 2011
Came out to the cemetery and brought a plant and some cut flowers.
Stopped to see Aunt Olive but she wasn't home, talked to cousin John and his family while they were playing volleyball. Wow, John can play.
Found out on Friday, Janice Ann's youngest daughter Meghan was killed by a drunk driver. They live in Washington State. Look for her mom. she's going to be confused, she was only 200 yards away from where she worked.
I will make a place for her at Life Ever After when I get the info from Janice.
Love you both
 

 
 

August 17, 2011
Its been a busy couple of weeks.  We celebrated Mary's 18th birthday with cake and ice cream. She wouldn't let me take any pictures in fear I would post them on the internet. She is getting ready to go to college, she moves in the dorm the end of this month.  Judy had a yard sale and I went up and bought their wooden table and chairs, Nancy's bed and a dresser of Judy's. They are selling their house and Judy will go into Assisted Living, Nancy is already permanently living at the nursing home.

 

 I started some more work on your house. I went and had the water turned on because I thought someone would stay here during Uncle John's memorial next month.  I bought a rug for the kitchen and Rayshawn put it down for me. Now we have "wall to wall" carpeting in the kitchen. I bought a new faucet for the sink, just don't have it put in yet.
Tonight the kids are here at the house with Mary and I. We went to Target and I got some school clothes for Terry and some stuff for all three of them. Got Lazarus a booster seat. He is growing so fast.

I put the farm up for sale. It was a hard decision to make but I know that my children are not going to be farmers and I really want the land to be used instead of just sitting there wasting away.

New Horizon Realtor  has listed the property and he said this past week he has shown it twice. He is hopeful that someone will buy it soon. I just want whomever buys it to show it the love that it deserves.

One year and five months since the accident. I sit here tonight thinking of how the events unfolded. I thank my Aunt Olive and Shirley for being there for me then and now. You know you think it would get easier as time goes by, it doesn't. You have to be strong in your beliefs and faith that someday we will see each other again, otherwise a person would and could go crazy. I feel for all the people left behind when a tragedy occurs. Its lonely.  I have been told to "get with the living" and "your mom wouldn't want you suffering so much" but I welcome this time and this closeness I feel. It gets me through the day.
I love you Mom and Dad

 

Aug. 19, 2011
The lights are on at 1709 and there is laughter and smiles in that old house. No, its not mine, its Lei Ann and her family.
Not sure how things are going to go, but for now, the house is being used. Lets take it one step at a time.

 
 

Aug. 28, 2011
Big day for me mom. I signed up online for Social Security. I will get my first check in December. Probably not much more than what you got, but its something. Tomorrow Mary is off to college and Terrance is going to BURTON SCHOOL. Yep we are finally in the "district" again. Ha ha after all these years. I think I am more excited than he is.  We fixed up the bedroom in the basement and he has internet and XBOX-360 but no TV he has to come up stairs to watch that.
Rayshawn and Lei Ann cut our grass yesterday, and cut Steve's also, it looks really nice. Steve appreciated him cutting it, Steve can't get around very well. I do see Clara once in a while.
Olive had a yard sale at her house this weekend. I took a bunch of stuff from your house out there.  I gave her the fan that Uncle John  fixed up to go into the cigarette lighter of the camper. She said they can use it on the boat. I am glad someone will use it.
Lei Ann is all moved in now and the kids are settled. Things are going well.
I miss you both.

 
 

Labor Day Sept. 5, 2011
Thought I would take a shot at planting some flowers again.
I see something is growing there by itself. Probably something you planted last year just coming up again. Looks like there's going to be white flowers on it soon.
Stopped by Bill Millspaw's and he gave me some cherry tomatoes. Him and his wife are fine.
Miss you.
 

September 17, 2011
Eighteen months ago today I sat with you at the hospital, I relive that event often. I miss you mom.
What a difference a day makes.

Brought some cut flowers and left Daddy's token.
Stopped over to see Grandma and Grandpa Fuller too.

 

 

Sept 30, 2011
Hey mom and dad. Judy called me about an hour ago, she wanted to tell me that Nancy died. She was in the hospital with a broken hip, had come out of surgery fine, in recovery and had a massive heart attack. Judy said they brought her back three times, but she was gone. Look for her daddy, she will be wondering if she is in the right place. Take care of her mom, show her around and help her look for Mim and John. Judy will be fine, I'll keep an eye on her.  Making a place for her here.  Nancy J Nass
Love you

 

Oct. 3rd
Turned on the furnace Sunday. I cleaned out the vents. Wow, the dust. I put away my summer clothes and got out the winter blankets.
I got one of yours on my bed. It keeps me warm and it smells like you.
I had to  turn the furnace on, I got the grandkids there. No, no snow yet, but that wind is chilly.
Ordered some flowers for Nancy's funeral.  Flowers for Nancy NassOlive and I will go together.  Miss you both.

As I was ordering the flowers for Nancy, Steve called me on the phone and told me that Clara Mae Kaus had passed away. Hey Mom, tell them that the ticket cost the same if they go by themselves or in a group. There's no discount if you take others with you. I know that sounds harsh, but I don't know if I can handle two funerals in the same day.  Look for Clara too ok. Make sure she finds Chuck. She is finally without pain, You know she's been through a lot. Clara Kaus

Oct. 5, 2011
Went to Nancy's funeral at 11. It was beautiful. She wore the blue sweater you gave her years ago, but it looked so pretty. She had a smile for me as I told her how pretty she looked. The flowers were beautiful also. Olive brought some cookies and they appreciated them. Jeffrey Lane wore a bright green suit, looking dapper as always. They recorded the service, so I will ask for a copy so I can put it on her page.
Then Olive and I went to Clara's viewing from 4-7pm. She was wearing a bright red sweater. She looked so small in that casket. But she looked peaceful and I know that she is happy now. Her son took charge of everything and Steve said he will fulfill her wishes.
Connie is going to live with him in North Carolina.  I saw Russ there. Allen, Angela, Ann Marie and James were there. They are doing good. Afterwards we went to McGarrey's for dinner.  You know "the best rubin sandwich in town." You and Nancy and I went there once. It was nice to see everyone. So sorry it has to be at a funeral.  Well I am exhausted. Good Night.
Oh almost forgot. They did the perk test at the farm.
They had to dig 30 holes before it would pass.  So yep, there is going to be a new house on that property in the spring. And a new family will be living there. I hope they have as much fun and good memories as I have.  And daddy, no, it didn't go cheap.

 

October 7, 2011


Happy Birthday Mom.  I don't know what today will bring, but I am ready for it. Its chilly out, Lei Ann cut the grass the other day, and I am glad. Things will work out mom, because I have a new outlook on life. I am not going to sweat the small stuff. Life is too short. I am tired of getting angry and worrying about everyone else. I will be 62 next month, I plan to live. Thanks to you and Daddy, I had a wonderful life, I will use these years left to do things I always wanted to do. No more moping around, ok? I promise. I love you both.
You have a good birthday, celebrate with all your friends. We here on Earth will celebrate your day too. never to forget you. Ever.
Love Margaret

Came out with aunt Olive and Shirley brought a decorated melon and daddy's token Melon decorated by Shirley's granddaughter it has cactus on it
 

October 17, 2011
Talked to Aunt Olive last night. She's been back and forth to Pittsburgh since I last wrote.  Saw Judy Nass also. She is trying to get things settled so she can move into a minimal care facility and sell the house. The property in McKean has a buyer. I just haven't met with them yet.
We had our 3rd year anniversary at the shop. Business is still really slow. I don't know exactly what to do.
One year and seven months... If I could go back in time I WOULD. What would I do differently? I don't know, maybe ask you not to go. Maybe take the day off and take you geocaching. But then maybe I wouldn't be typing this. Maybe I wouldn't be typing anything. I know you are here with me and its silly to post these feelings, all I have to do is think them and you know. But actually seeing them typed out, its a kind of therapy.  I miss you mom.
Daddy, hug her for me.

 
 
 

Oct. 19, 2011
Sue came up to visit. Today is her son's birthday. She always came to visit you, the memory is still strong. We got some chocolate muffins and had them. We visited your gravesite and she placed the purple flowers there.

The bird looks like its getting nectar from the flowers.:)

 Then I took her to the casino. She had never been. They gave her $10 to play with. She played the penny slots and the 2 cent slots. She walked away with $6.
 

 

October 20, 2011
Went to Aunt Olive's and Sue and her and I went to a few of your caches. http://www.grammyannie.com/10202011.htm  We had a good time laughing at the way you  always wanted us to "stop right here" or "turn here" and there wasn't a road to turn.  But we love you mom.  Thanks for a memorable day.

 
 

October 24, 2011
9:45 am Sitting in front of the lawyers office
today is the day the farm no longer belongs to a fuller
 I am sorry daddy
sorry I wasn't born a boy
sorry my kids have no interest in farming
good thing is, a new family will start their life there.

His name is Jeff and her name is Carol. They have three children. She has long brown hair and reminds me of Mary Grace. I think she likes to garden.
There will be plenty of room for her to do that out there.
Jeff  had the land surveyed and found that the neighbor's newly constructed garage is only 7 feet from the property line. McKean said he could make them take it down. He commented on how the other neighbor nicely cut more than ten feet of our property all along his driveway. I mentioned that we have a right-of-way and the lawyer said, yes it is recorded that way.  I also told her about your apple tree and where the seed came from.
I kind of teared up, and she gently touched my hand and said Thank you.
 

I miss you mom and dad.
 

 

October 31, 2011
Sitting at home waiting for the grandkids to come back from trick or treating. Its raining, not really cold, cold but raining.
Miss you mom cause I know how much you loved this holiday.

Well mom, I'm in the "system" now. After my fall a week ago, I have been nursing this knee with heat and Advil. Last night I decided that I would actually go and have it checked out.  I went to the VA this morning and a very nice female doctor Davidson had x-rays taken of my knee and told me that I had a little arthritis and Chondromalacia. So I have an appointment for physical therapy and then another one for a complete work up. Dr. Davidson said I was getting older and its about time I let them take care of me. So finally mom, I am in the system.
Once these appointments are over, I am heading for a road trip to Arizona.

Stopped to see Judy this morning. She is packing for her move to her apartment. She says she will be all moved in by the middle of this month. No the house hasn't sold yet, but they have interested buyers and once she gets moved out, she is sure it will sell. She misses Nancy as we all do. But this is a good move for her. She will be around people and have space of her own.
We have a graphic artist/web designer extern at the shop from EIT. He is going to revamp our site. I am anxious to see what he has planned. If it looks good, I may let him take a hand at some of the others.
love you both.
Margaret

 

Nov 6, 2011
Lei Ann and I drove out to the cemetery today, brought some flowers and daddy's token. We went by the property and found they had cut down the field and cut a little path in the driveway but its too wet to do anything else. Probably wait until spring to actually start building.

Then we went to Old Country Buffet for brunch. Albe met us there. I took these pictures. Jalita and Terry were at their other grandma's.

Lazarus liked French fries and fish, Mac and cheese and pizza

Nov 7-9 2011
My knee is still hurting me and so I decided to go visit Shirley and Larry. They told me how their operations on their knees went and how its so much better now. I was really scared. They were so good to me. I didn't have to do anything and was able to relax.  I had a really good time and stayed an extra day. Larry said how you enjoyed yourself when you went there. I know how you felt.  Not worried about my appointment next week any more.
Love you both

 
 

November 13, 2011
Well mom and dad, if it wasn't for my friends I wouldn't know anything that goes on within our family. Rich called me this afternoon and asked if that was my relative that died. I was shocked when he told me that Laura had died yesterday.  I will go to the funeral home for sure. I will even send some flowers, because that is what you would do.
When you see Laura, tell her I am sorry that I didn't come to see her.

 
 

Nov. 15th Had my physical therapy today. Knee hurts at times, but nothing like before. Went by Laurel Hill Cemetery and took some pictures of Laura and Oren's headstone for their website. Beautiful flowers there. Not the ones that I sent. I would have liked to take pictures at the funeral home but there were too many people there. She looked so peaceful laying there. Yea, she had a lot of flowers and visitors. I signed the book and said hello to Bud, Dot and family, then left.

Happy Thanksgiving.
I got up at 3:15 and stuffed the turkey and put it in the oven. Yes mom, at 200 degrees. It was hard to go back to sleep. I guess I miss you so much because I have to do it all myself. I remember when you did and I am so sorry that I didn't help you more.  You used to say that I'd get mine, and I am. Three no Six times fold. My three children and grandchildren. I always used to feel bad that I was an only child but watching my children bicker and grandchildren fuss over minor things, I think i had it made.
Thinking about what to be thankful for, I am thankful for my memories, I am thankful for the things I have learned and the ability to adjust to different situations. I know you had a lot to do with that dad, and although I didn't understand it then. I do now.
Woke up at 8:30 the smell of turkey in the air. My grandson asleep next to me and I felt at peace. Well turkey is way done, falls off the bone and not soggy but very tasty. Put the ham in the oven and made the macaroni and cheese, baked beans, deviled eggs, corn, candied yams, and called Lei Ann and Albe.  Lei Ann and Jalita are sick, so they won't be coming over. Terry and Mary are here. Albe will be here and Lei Ann sent over Scalped potatoes, Apple Pie and Brownies and biscuits.

Miss you both.
 
 

Nov. 27th
Took Mary back to college. She will come back Dec. 16th for Christmas and stay until Jan 2nd.
I drove out to the cemetery and left my daddy's token and a Poinsettia plant, but forgot my camera. I took a picture with my phone but its not clear.  I was told that Sixty-Two years ago, my mom and dad went to a show. It was crowded and they had to stand up. After the show my mom came home and she was having pains and went to the hospital. 8 am on the 28th I was born.  Thank you mom and dad.

 

Dec. 6, 2011
I am in McKinney, Texas. Yes by my self. Well not really. I am not alone. I got my dad in the front seat, telling me to watch for the semis, keep my eye on the route sign. Got Mary Bennett in the seat behind me reading EVERY sign she sees. Mom, you got me writing down everything, when I pee, the price of gas, the mileage and if I ate. then I actually have someone else with me. This was weird, I was at the rest area and I kind of worried, you know all alone. So I took my dad's blanket and my extra pillow and put it in the last seat. Made it look like someone was sleeping there. So I was snugg in the front seat, pillow and blanket and I SMELLED FEET. I said wait, my feet don't smell. Well I went in and washed them. I came back out and got cumfy, I looked in my rear view mirror and I swore I saw Tony Platner's feet coming out of the blanket. You remember when he would sleep in the back of the Buick on the way to Arizona. WOW did his feet stink. You wanted to tell him and my dad said shut up. SO I AM NOT ALONE.
 

December 14, 2011
Posted most of my pictures at  http://www.eacasefamily.com/mh/journey2011.htm I did enjoy my time on the road. I found Glen and Esther (I think) and visited Gunda and Frank. So yes, the trip was worth it. I also realize that I miss my grandkids and will be happy to see them again.
Love you Mom and Dad

 
Back home and getting ready to get Mary from school. Now that I am 62, I plan to let Amanda and Albert run the shop. I will go out when they need me, but I am OFFICIALLY retired.
 
December 18, 2011  It snowed today. Not a lot, but enough to shovel the sidewalk to get to the steps.  Getting ready for Christmas.
 
Steve gave me Mary's tree and some bulbs.
We put it up and added our ornaments too.
Just a few of the village. Enough to say Merry Christmas.

Mary and I went to the cemetery. I brought an artificial poinsettia bush because the real plant I took out died in the frost. Aunt Olive placed a wreath there.
I left my daddy's token and cleaned the leaves around the stone. Merry Christmas Mom and Dad.
