Mom and Justin at his senior prom.

Happy 33rd Birthday Baby!!!
As always, I was so looking forward to this birthday with you. We will still be having our traditional Bucky Birthday cookout celebration, because that is what you would have wanted. We are having a cook-out and are inviting a lot of the family and friends. I know the guest of honor will be there, if only in spirit. Bucky we miss you so very much, our lives are not and will never be the same again. There are so many more biggies to come that we won't get to share with you. I know that
you are with us and we will all be together again soon.
Happy 33rd Birthday, my beautiful boy. Love, Mom

Dad, Ben and Justin.

Happy Birthday Buck! If I ever need a smile, I think of the night you were born. Man, was I a proud dad, it had to be the single most happiest day of my life, and as you got older and bigger, I grew more and more in love with you, my buddy, friend and pal. If I ever need a cry, I think of you not being here with me. But, God knows what is best for our lives. My heart is heavy, but I do praise the Lord for Ben and mom, I still have them. I have chose to celebrate what I have had, and what I have got.
Thank you Justin, you have made us all better for knowing and loving you.
P.S. I could do a book of stories of you.

Playing the game hurt, Dad

Ben and Justin.

Happy Birthday Bub, I love and miss you so much. I know you are with me always.
Love, Ben (Justin's brother)


Birthdays are a time for celebration
Not a time for tears
But what happens when the birthdays
No longer mark the years
A birthday marks the moment
A spirit enters earthly life
To share its special love and joy
And learn from earthly strife
Before a spirit comes to us,
It Knows when and how it must depart
It chooses its path carefully,
We are honored from the start
The sadness we now feel on such a joyous day
Is longing for our loved one's touch
It' s natural to feel this way
For even though the birthdays
No longer mark a spirit's stay
Love continues on forever
To touch us everyday
I hug my precious memories
Close to my heart
And honor my beloved spirit child
Who chose me from the start.

These are two beautiful and loving gifts to Angel Justin from my dear friend, Carol, mom to Angel Michael.

Justin you were born on the 49th anniversary of my dad, your great-grandfathers Heaven Day. You were so beautiful, I just wanted to go sit at his grave and tell him all about his great grandson. So my beloved grandson, while we will gather and celebrate your birthday here on earth you will be with the rest of the family helping your great grandfather celebrate his 70th Heaven Day.
Tell dad Happy Heaven Day for me and Happy Birthday to my dear grandson whom I miss painfully and desperately.
Love, Grandma Mullins

Taran's Message:
Bucky, I don't even know where to start...I miss you so bad, I wear your Hooters t-shirt all the time, i wish we could've gone back just one more time. As much as it hurts and as badly as I miss you, I still wouldn't have you back for anything cause I know you're much better off. I wish I could celebrate your birthday with you, but I'm sure you're having WAY more fun up there,
so Happy Birthday Babe. You'll always be in my heart...forever.
Love Always, Taran


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 heart ache
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 make 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.

Our new little granddaughter's name is Cali Nicole McCoy, and she was born on December 19, 2012. She is an absolute angel. On the right is a picture of Justin as a baby, and on the left is one of Cali in the bathtub so you can see how much they look alike.

This a picture of Cali and Justin's mom, Missy, wishing Justin a Happy 30th Birthday!

Justin's brother Ben, his wife Marlena and Cali.


Sometimes while looking through the closet,
I catch myself;
Smelling your clothes, just to catch a scent of you.

Sometimes while surfing the radio channels,
I catch myself;
Listening to a song you once listened to.

Sometimes when I'm lonely and need to call someone,
I catch myself;
Calling a person who was a friend to you.

Sometimes when looking through the photo album,
I catch myself;
Looking at pictures of only you.

Sometimes at night when I can't sleep,
I catch myself;
Crying over memories I have of you

Sometimes at night when I pray,
I catch myself;
Thanking God for blessing us with you.

I love the dogwood pictures, that is one of my favorite trees, his teachers bought me one
to put at the park for his dedication ceremony.

For You My Precious Child

I know you haven't left me,
Your presence I still feel,
The love you give surrounds me,
And your smile it seems so real.

While I lay at night in stillness,
Your voice to me so clear,
My heart starts beating faster,
When I know that you're so near.

Sweetheart come and take me,
To the Heaven where you live,
God knows I long to hold you,
I still have so much to give.

You wouldn't have to keep me there,
Just only for a while,
Long enough to hug you,
And to once more see your smile.

Can you hear me speaking,
Are you close enough to hear,
Will you please reach out and touch me,
So I'll know that you are near.

Could it be that you are sleeping,
While I dream again once more,
Or God showing what faith can do,
When I open up His door.

I hold you safely in my heart,
And you travel through my soul,
The days we spent together,
Were the happiest I'll ever know.

You are sweet like the breath of an Angel,
That lingers and will never leave,
I'll see you soon my precious child,
And no longer shall I grieve.

Before you have to go my love,
Please fly me to the stars,
I need to see where you rest at night,
And if I have to travel far.

This is a picture of Justin getting ready to blow out the candles on his final birthday cake, his 19th,
he passed two months later. His brother Ben is looking on...big sigh He is smiling so pretty here.

Dear Missy
Looking through your site, your ANGEL Justin seemed to be the laugh of the party.
Always had a smile on his face, friends that loved him.
