Oh Mother, My Mother
Author Unknown

Oh mother, my mother, I touch your tears
Invisible fingers, soothing your skin
I know you think of me so often
In the day and in the night.
Going into an empty room
Knowing I will never be there
But I am in your heart and in your soul.
I shall always be,
For you gave so unselfishly.
You created such a world for me
A world of laughter, of love, of sadness, of sorrow;
Every emotion people come to know
You shared with me.
And even though I may never Feel your arms around me,
I feel your heart beating, Like a lullaby,
singing me to sleep
And your spirit giving me a safe haven
Protecting me and nurturing me
Preparing me of things to come.
Sometimes the journey of life pulls souls apart.
And yes, I had to go on to another place.
I wish I could have stayed
I wish this was a decision I could have made
And I know you do too.
Know this wherever you are:
I will always remember that yours was the first love,
The first joy, the first soul I ever knew.
You gave me the courage to go on in my journey
I hope I can do the same for you.
Your heart will always call me to you.
Love, Your Child

I Love Joey so much. My baby is my life. Yes, I call Joey my baby.
He will always be my baby. I Miss Him so much...

Linda, My Friend, thinking of you as face this difficult day. May the Lord comfort you with sweet memories of the day your sweet angel Joey was born. I will have my candle lit in memory of Joey,
and I will take a birthday balloon and a yellow rose out to the grave for Joey as our boys celebrate their birthdays together in heaven.........

Letter to Mom

Mom, please don't feel guilty
It was just my time to go.
I see you are still feeling sad,
And the tears just seem to flow.
We all come to earth for our lifetime,
And for some it's not many years
I don't want you to keep crying
You are shedding so many tears.
I haven't really left you
Even though it may seem so.
I have just gone to my heavenly home,
And I'm closer to you than you know.
Just believe that when you say my name
I'm standing next to you,
I know you long to see me,
But there's nothing I can do.
But I'll still send you messages
And hope you understand,
That when your time comes to "cross over",
I'll be there to take your hand.

This special gift for Joey's birthday is from Gina.

These are four beautiful gifts from Patti, Mom to Angel Dustin.

The next two poems are gifts from my dear friend, Maggie.
She also wrote: "My Dearest Friend Linda -
You are in my thoughts and prayers as you remember your Precious Joey on his Heavenly Birthday."

I'll lend you for a little time a child of mine, He said,
For you to love while he lives
And mourn for when he is dead.
It may be six or seven years, or twenty-two or three.
But will you, till I call him back,
Take care of him for Me?
He'll bring his charms to gladden you;
And should his stay be brief,
You'll have his lovely memories As solace for your grief,
I cannot promise he will stay,
Since all from Earth return,
But there are lessons taught down there,
I want this child to learn.
I've looked this wide world over In my search for teachers true
And from the throngs that crowd life's lane,
I have selected you.
Now will you give him all your love.
Not think the labor in vain,
Nor hate Me when I come to call,
And take him back again?
I fancied that I heard them say
Dear Lord, Thy will be done,
For all the joy thy child shall bring,
The risk of grief we'll run.
We'll shelter him with tenderness,
We'll love him while we may;
And for the happiness we've known, Forever grateful stay.
But should the Angels call for him
Much sooner than we planned,
We'll brave the bitter grief that comes
And try to understand.

The above two gifts are from Pat, mom to Angels Kevin and Kurt.

Heres a little gift for Joey my dear friend.......
my thoughts and prayers are with u...
Hugs, DJ

Sweet Linda, My heart aches for you and I am so sorry that this month will be so hard on you.. May you find peace in knowing that you are not alone and that you can share what ever you need to help you through this time.. My thoughts of Marjorie remain that I want to be with her lots, but know that if I dwell on it too much I am going to be nothing for my other 2 kids so I try hard to grieve a little at a time.. It has been a long time since I truly cried hard, but did so the other day.. I thought that I had gone past the deep crying, but I just know it will happen when ever I need to do so...You hold tight and let the pain find its way out however you need to do it.. Joey misses you and will always know that you love him even if he is just a thought away...

The good Lord knows our mother's hearts will always be tender for our kids.. May you find peace today as you brought him into this world for even a short time you had with him..
I send lots of hugs to a mom who deserves a special crown for her pain.. Hugs and prayers of peace.. Norma Jean, mom to Angel Marjorie

To Joey


I lit a candle for you today
May its light reflect my love your way
So great you are upon my mind
I had to stop and give you my time
I thought of the memories we shared together
Enjoying the company of one another
I am so glad for the time we had
Now without, I am so sad
My talks to you, now only goes one way
I'm sure you hear me on Heaven's way
I'd give anything to have you talk back to me
Oh what a comfort that would be
I lit a candle for you today
May its light reflect my love your way
Now I must go until next time
I will forever keep you, gently on my mind.
Written by Doyle Alldredge @2005

Linda, I signed the guest book, but wanted to say more so here it is..You are such a warm mother who loves her son, Joey beyond words and you care for others pain, too..You can not get any better than that.. May you treasure the days you had with Joey.. Only God knows why He takes our kids when they are young and vibrant.. We do get to see them one day again and forever..That is my only hope to see Marjorie and be with her again forever..God bless you and keep you this month as you remember bringing life to Joey.. He loves you for always and he will never forget his mom..
Hugs and love from the heart, Norma Jean mom to Marjorie Mae

Joey made this card above for me!

These three gifts are from Robyn.

You Think

Do you think that I am over it
Better than before
Maybe I've forgotten
Doesn't hurt me anymore?

Do you think that I am doing fine
No tears are shed each day
Get up and just get going
Pain has all but gone away?

Do you think that I am coping
Living life just as you do
If that's what you imagine...
You don't have a single clue

I cope, I cry, and I deny
I've learned how I must hide
Keep everything within me
Bottled up deep down inside

I can't be who I was before
I've changed I'm someone new
It happens when you have a loss
You would be different too

I'm so misunderstood each day
Too tired to explain
Not over it, or better
Simply put... I'm not the same

In loving memory of Joey and his heavenly buddies

Look up towards the sun
And catch every ray of light upon your cheek
For I am there with you

Today is my birthday
Be happy for me
I lived a short but full happy life
I had the pleasure of love
And the joy of the family
Do not be sad
Look up towards the stars
And catch each twinkle in your heart
For I am there with you

Today is my birthday
My legacy is not wealth or mighty belongings
My legacy is you and your life
Spend it wisely and carefully
Guard it always
Do not be sad
Feel the wind on your face and in your hair
And know that I loved you
For I am there in your laughter
And in your heart

Today is my birthday
Learn to live without me
Take my strength with you
For you are not alone
Do not be sad
Feel the rain on your face
Feel all life's treasures
And know that you are alive!
At each step of the way
I will help you
For I am with you always
Until we meet again
Today Is My Birthday!!

And I will light a candle for you
to shadow all the darkness and bless the times we knew
Like a beacon in the night the flame will burn bright
and guide us on our way
Oh today I light a candle for you.

Seasons come and go and I'm weary from the change
Keep on moving on -- you know it's not the same
And when I'm walking all alone
Do you hear me call your name?
Do you hear me sing the songs we used to sing?

And I will light a candle for you...

You filled my life with wonder -- touched me with surprise
Always saw that something special deep within your eyes
And through the good times and the bad
We carried on with pride
I hold on to the love and life we knew

And I will light a candle for you...
Oh today I light a candle for you.

I have lit a candle... Happy Birthday My Son. Just know mommy loves you more than life..You are my life Joey and I'm here now to celebrate your birthday with you in spirit. I'm crying my love,
cause I Miss you so much. I just wish Joey we can go back in time ,and i was in bed when i first saw your little face and held you in my arms. Memories i have Joey.
I Just wish i had you back. MA

National Memorial Ribbon
The red and black ribbon was first designed in 1987 by Betty O'Donnell, parent of a murdered child and member of the Long Island, NY Chapter.
The red represents the violence in society and the black symbolizes death and mourning.
Angel pins are worn with the ribbons to symbolize the victims.

We Do Not Need A Special Day

We do not need a special day
To bring you to our minds
The days we do not think of you
Are very hard to find

Each morning when we awake
We know that you are gone
And no one knows the heartache
As we try to carry on

Our hearts still ache with sadness
And secret tears still flow
What it meant to lose you
No one will ever know

Our thoughts are always with you
Your place no one can fill
In life we loved you dearly
In death we love you still

There will always be a heartache
And often a silent tear
But always a precious memory
Of the days when you were here

If tears could build a staircase
And heartaches make a lane
We'd walk the path to Heaven
And bring you home again

We hold you close, within our hearts
And there you will remain
To walk with us throughout our lives
Until we meet again

Our family chain is broken now
And nothing seems the same
But as God calls us one by one
The chain will link again.

Murder of A Child - No Punishment Great Enough

Dearest Linda
This is a poem I wrote for my Lee a while ago. He always wanted to be a bird and fly free. This is how I must think of him now.
Free from everything he dealt with on this earth. Put your TRUST in GOD and believe that your ANGEL Joey is now Happy and Free.

I saw a bird today
He reminded me so much of you
Was it you, was it a sign
Were my dreams really coming true

My Son, My ANGEL, Were you coming home to me
Or was it my imagination?
Would I have to set you free?

I sat in the garden and watched you
You were picking at the grass
I thought to myself, were you going to stay?
Was this wonderful feeling going to last?
You have eaten from the feeder
I can see you are now ready to fly
Of course my eyes are full of tears
Saying, please come back, don't say goodbye

As you flew away
You looked back at me as if you knew who I was
I have to believe it was you saying, Mom,
Please put your FAITH and TRUST in GOD
