the world turns in whirly bits, sometimes i see you in the light,
i hear your smile voice.
i want my bubby.
then it is silent and i wait. i dont know what i am waiting for, until i see you in the night sky and i laugh at myself. the whole world says jamie. i am forever your bubby.
somewhere over the rainbow, blue birds fly, birds fly over the rainbow, why then oh why can't I?
I keep trying to write jamies story, or really our story. It is nearly impossible to capture jamie in a book. she is a genius. If only I could talk to her again.
it is hard to speak Levine speak without her.
I’m a few days late, but I’m sitting at your gravesite now, & someone put lovely pinwheels with Gerber daisies at the site, which was brilliant. It’s always so peaceful here. I hope that lots of critters still come to visit you here. I also hope that Curtis, Dori, David, & all your friends are hanging in there during this crazy time in the world. Your laugh always brought us comfort. Belated happy birthday.
I miss my sweet Jamie so much. Her birthday is in a few days and I remember the laughter. She was born in Colorado March 23 1975 on a snowy night. Her heart is in my heart . I remember the warm hugs.
I dreamed Jamie this early morning. Such a gift. My heart is thanking her for the gift. I miss David and Jamie all the time. They both have big loving hearts and enjoy helping people. Kindness. That is David and Jamie. I have always told my children and husband about my first flowers of spring. I planted 75 tulip bulbs, purple and pink and yellow. I use to buy Jamie so many things in Purple. Then when she lived in Redondo Beach she decorated her home in green I said to her, I thought purple was you favorite color. She gave me that smile, and said mom purple is your favorite. one year on Mothers Day she took me to have my colors done, for make-up.... she bought me the most beautiful green eyeshadow. Her and I loved looking at make-up and nail polish colors. One more memory , Wayne had a nickname for Jamie, it was Jade.
if happy little blue birds fly over the rainbow why oh why cant i?
There is a heart at the center of the world. there is a stream that flows from it. there is a bird that flies over the valley. then there is you a gerber daisy guarding it all with love. how i remember.
Sometimes I feel like a piece of the dark night has taken me away, and then I have a memory of you. if your a little light then then i am a little light. there is light here. yes i rest in your light.
forever with me,
I love you Jamie. My heart has been really aching for your laughter, your creative life leasons and your tremendous love for the neatest things in the world.
I miss your beautiful smile, your kindness and your sweet, determined spirit every day. You will always be in my heart, and I am so very grateful for the time spent with you. Love you sweet lady.
I have found in the years past that I am most vulnerable at time of remembrance . The word anniversary no longer hols a promise of celebration. Instead, holidays contain an undertow of sorrow. If I get caught in it, I quickly get an undertow of sorrow. It is ironic that the presence of an absence can be so emotionally devastating . We still talk about our last precious Christmas together . The precious memories are always near. We will be together again in heaven. We miss Jamie and Wayne more each year. I am very thankful for all the friends that stay in touch. Robin always sends gifts that feel like Jamie picked them out. My hair shirt grows bigger and my love grows stronger. Merry Christmas and keep warm.
where is the funnies? I guess it is a mad mad world. I look at your smiling face and I hear your laughter. you made me laugh everyday you were with us. you are a amazing person. I laughthrough my tears. you are always near.
Another day of missing you, my dearest Jamie. You are never far from my heart and thoughts.
I have been away for some time now. So much life has happened right beneath my feet. I look at the clouds and the sky. I look at the stars and the moon. Then I wonder, maybe we are in a neighborhood right next door to heaven. maybe Jamie and Wayne are right there. maybe life is just that magical? It took 15 years to think this, but I still wonder, just maybe?
A sunny Sunday morning and celebration of beautiful spring weather. I saw a bluebird fly and wondered if it was Jamie checking up on me again. Shortly after Jamie passed, I was sitting in my vehicle looking out at Lake Davis with my arm resting on the window ledge thinking only of her. Out of the air a beautiful bluebird landed on the side mirror and looked at me with her sparkling eyes. She settled with a fluff and stayed while I spoke softly to her. Ever since that first profound encounter, I cherish being near bluebirds because I believe Jamie is connected and saying, "Hi dad" in her unique voice. Everyone who knew Jamie can remember her sweet voice and laugh to this very day. Jamie, I miss you so very much. Love always ... so much love.
Here it is Jamie's birthday, it was snowing today just as it was on this day in 1975. Well, first we cried and held each other, feeling devastated that you are gone so long. It is lonely without your smile, your smell, your hugs, your understanding. We still have those things in our hearts. We wear our silver bracelets that Christy gave us, it says I am Always with you. And it is always a comfort to wear them. I went and had my nails painted with dragonflies on the ring finger. The pink nail color is called baby girl. I am so very grateful to of had her for 28 years. I was looking at make-up and remembering how Jamie and I use to look at nail polish and lipstick colors for hours and laugh. I pretended that she is with me, just like in Redondo Beach. Oh how I wish I would of visited Jamie more often. I have such regret that I never visited in L. A. when she lived with Robin. So many things I do and see, have me thinking, oh Jamie would like that or Jamie would really laugh at that. Alexa is funny and would make Jamie laugh. I like how I can ask her to play any song and she knows them all. Your funny MOM. love and giggles and hugs Dori
Thinking of Jamie today. I need one of her special hugs. David is not doing well, I worry so about him. We have tons of snow here. I wish they were both here to help Dad shovel and chop wood. Alice Price thank you for the Christmas message. I hope you are well. Love always, dori
Am sending my wish to Jamie's parents for a meaningful Christmas Season and a Healthy New Year.
I was just talking out loud to you Jamie. I miss you everyday, we all do. You are forever young. Remember when we laughed so hard in the car, the 4 of us going to Lake Tahoe? It was quiet in the car, then David said, what will it be like when the deer come home Momma? You and David both were a comedy act. I miss your funny stories . Lemon jello and Orange jello. I am so happy at this time of year that all your true friends send us cards with photos of the children. It means so much, we giggle and smile. Stay with us always in our hearts and I light candles by you and Wayne and David everyday. This little light of mine, I'm gonna let it shine, let it shine, let it shine. You David and DAD are my whole world. Love and hugs and kisses, and yes I am stretching my NECK.
