Thank you so much for your interest!
We must travel by stepping stones...
No...you're not alone...I'll go with you
I know the road well...I've been there
Don't fear the darkness...I'll be with you
We must take one step at a time
But remember...we may have to stop awhile
It is a long way to the other side
And there are many obstacles you must face
We have many stones to cross...some are bigger than others
Shock...denial...pain and anger to start
Then comes guilt...despair and loneliness
It's a hard road to travel but it must be done
It's the only way to reach the other side
Come...slip your hand in mine
What? Oh yes...it's very strong
I've held so many hands like yours
Once...you see...I had to take someone's hand
In order to take the first step
Oops! You've stumbled...go ahead and cry
Don't be ashamed...it's ok...I understand
Let's wait here awhile and get your breath
When you're stronger we'll go on...one step at a time
There's no need to hurry...we have time on our side
Hey...it's so nice to hear you laugh again
The memories you shared with me are good
They will live in you for all of eternity
Look...we're halfway there now
I can see the other side...it's so warm and filled with laugher and sunshine
Oh...have you noticed we're nearing the last stone
and you're standing alone...
And look...your hand...you've let go of mine
We've finally reached the other side...
But wait...look back...someone is standing there
They are alone and want to cross the stepping stones
I'd better go now...they need my help
What? Are you sure...
Why...yes go ahead...of course I'll wait
You know the way...you've been there
Yes...I agree it's your turn...my friend
To help someone else cross the stepping stones

Isn't it so very special?
One dream that could come true
We'd pray to God so hard
For yesterday and you.
They say memories are golden
Well, maybe that is true
But we never wanted memories,
We only wanted you.
If teardrops were a stairway
And heartaches a lane,
We'd walk a path to heaven
And bring you back again.
A thousand times we've needed you
A thousand times we cried......
If love could have saved you,
You would have never died.
May his memory shine forever!
Our children are with the Lord Jesus in Heaven's great divine.
A tear rolls down my face, as they wave and shout down to me.
Calling "tell my mommy you saw me, "tell her it's me Christopher,
that you see. Don't you stand there and cry, I'll hold your babies for you.
I see them everyday, I wouldn't fib, there are two.
Tell my mommy that I miss her, and I come and see her everyday.
But I have an important job up here, I watch your children play.
The pain is over for me, and your babies too.
As I sit up here and wait so patiently, here come some more Angels,
and they are very new.
You see my job is helping the new Angels to come along the way,
II show them all my legos, and we sit for hours and play.
So please tell my mommy I miss her and I love her too!
But I have an important job here in Heaven, it's babysitting for you.

Letters, raised up in polished bronze
My fingers touch the half of the circle
that spells your name
Tanner Jason Tobac
Beautiful blue skies
sunshine warmly touching the earth
others would rejoice
I sit upon my brother's grave
Feeling letters that spell
Thomas G. Dolby
Now embracing Tanner
Oh who would you be if you were here with me?
Death in its unfairness has taken you both.
Together here you lay.
I sit upon these stones
and let the warm tears fall
and dream of a life with you in it.
Tanner now 15 years old
And all I can do is touch the letters
that spell your names.
in loving memory of my brother Tommy Dolby
and in loving memory of my son, Tanner Jason Tobac,
born into the arms of Jesus 9/30/99
But it would have been easier
to have lost my own life
than to have lost
the life I loved more than my own.
YOUR SUCH AN ANGEL TO TAKE CARE OF EVERYONES THINGS LIKE YOU DO...
AND I HAVE SOMETHING FOR YOU SWEETHEART...LOVE YOU SWEETIE, LOVE TERRI"
for love itself lives on.
Cherished memories never fade,
because one loved is gone.
Those we love can never be,
more than a thought apart,
for as long as there is a memory,
they live on in our heart.
as a gift from Angel Ariel's mommy, Melissa.
