Thanks to all your help in (What is the letter?), I was able to fix my mother's tile! Unfortunately, as clumsy as I am, as I was patching this tile up, I smashed a few more. There's a letter/s missing from each set again I really need your help with these ones as they are part of one collection, and form the name of a dear friend at the end. Could you please help me again?

1) J F J M A A M J O N D

2) V G Y I R B

3) G F ; O P ; D H ; C S ; P S or S S ; H-B P

4) A B A O N W S A S

5) M M V J N U E
