In Loving Memory of
Earl Paul Roberts III (Scooby)
June 30, 1973 - February 26, 2004


Today i am thinking of you my son on your 43rd birthday...
Seems as if this pain and grief are forever here to stay.......
You will never be forgotten or your memory fade away.......
Because in my heart my precious son is where you will always stay.......
Just wanted to send this little poem to say i love you forever.......
And happy birthday!
Love eternally, mama




HAPPY BIRTHDAY


I TOOK A PEN AND PAPER INTO HAND TO TELL YOU HOW I FEEL....
HOW MUCH I LOVE AND MISS YOU,,,AND HOW I'LL NEVER HEAL,,,,
FROM THE AWFUL PAIN AND GRIEF THATS ALWAYS IN MY HEART,,,,,
BECAUSE YOU LEFT TOO EARLY AND IT TORE MY LIFE APART,,,
BUT HOW DOES A MOTHER PUT WORDS UPON A PAGE,,,
THAT REFLECTS HER TRUE EMOTIONS,,,HER ANGUISH AND HER RAGE,,,,
THE ONLY WAY THAT SHE CAN LIVE THE REMAINDER OF HER TIME,,,
IS TO TRY TO CAPTURE THE MEMORIES THAT FLOAT ACROSS HER MIND,,,,
SO AS I SIT AND PONDER THINGS THAT HAPPENED IN OUR PAST,,,
I TRY TO EASE MY ACHING HEART WITH GOOD MEMORIES THAT LAST,,,,
BUT I FIND MY MIND GOES WANDERING ALONG THE SPAN OF YEARS,,,,
AND THE GRIEF COMES BACK TO HAUNT ME IN A WATERFALL OF TEARS,,,,
BECAUSE THIS IS YOUR BIRTHDAY,,,I WANTED TO SAY THINGS RIGHT,,,
I WANTED TO SAY "HAPPY BIRTHDAY" EVEN THOUGH YOUR OUT OF SIGHT,,,,
I HOPE YOU KNOW HOW MUCH I WISH THAT YOU WERE HERE WITH ME,,,
SO WE COULD HOLD EACH OTHER CLOSE,, THE WAY IT USED TO BE....
BUT I KNOW AND TRUST THAT YOUR IN MORE LOVING ARMS THAN MINE,,,
AND EVERYDAY IN HEAVEN IS LIKE A BIRTHDAY CELEBRATION DIVINE,,,
SO UNTIL WE MEET AGAIN,,, WHERE JOYS WILL NEVER CEASE,,,
I'LL TRY TO REMEMBER OUR GOOD TIMES AND THAT WILL GIVE ME PEACE..
LOVE FROM MOM


Scooby was so honored to give his sister Melinda away on her wedding day,
he had a ball at her wedding.



   

" HAPPY BIRTHDAY SCOOBY"


MY ANGEL SCOOBY,
IT'S YOUR BIRTHDAY SON, A DAY I WILL ALWAYS THANK GOD FOR.
BECAUSE ON JUNE 30, 1973 IS THE DAY I RECEIVED A PRECIOUS GIFT FROM GOD,
THAT GIFT WAS YOU SON.



FOR 30 YRS I HAD YOU TO CELEBRATE THIS DAY WITH, AND NOW I ONLY HAVE THE MEMORIES. ALTHOUGH THERE WERE MANY TROUBLED WATERS, AND VALLEYS, WE HAVE TO REALIZE THAT GOD PLACED US TOGETHER. THROUGH THE GOOD AND NOT SO GOOD. FOR SOME REASON ONLY GOD KNOWS, WE WERE JOINED AS FAMILY, AND I THANK HIM FOR THAT.




This special gift for Angel Scooby's birthday is from my friend Marie.
You can visit her website for her son Rob here ~Rob Northrop's Site.



This is a beautiful and loving gift for Angel Scooby from my dear friend, Carol, mom to Angel Michael.



I COULD HAVE BEEN A BETTER MOTHER, YOU COULD HAVE BEEN A BETTER SON. NOW I SEE THAT WHAT YOU WERE WAS A PART OF ME, AND WHAT I AM IS A PART OF YOU. INTERTWINED THROUGH GODS MIRACULOUS HANDS. HE KNITTED YOU INSIDE MY WOMB, KNOWING LONG AGO WHAT WAS GOING TO HAPPEN, GOD HAD HIS REASONS FOR YOU AND ME. YOU TAUGHT ME LESSONS
AND I HOPE I TAUGHT YOU SOME.



I WILL LIVE THE REMAINDER OF MY LIFE WITH A HEAVY HEART, A BROKEN AND BRUISED HEART. NOT A DAY GOES BY, THAT I DONT THINK OF YOU SCOOBY. IT HURTS SO MUCH TO LOSE YOU. LIFE WITHOUT YOU IS VERY PAINFUL FOR ME. BUT YOU HAVE ANOTHER BIRTHDAY NOW, AN ANGEL BIRTHDAY, A NEW BIRTHDAY TO CELEBRATE WITH THE ANGELS AND OUR LORD ABOVE.
AN ANGEL DATE OF FEBRUARY 26, 2004.


I CAN ONLY IMAGINE WHAT A CELEBRATION TOOK PLACE THERE! TO KNOW THERE ARE NO TEARS OR PAIN. LIKE THE BIBLE SAYS "OLD THINGS ARE PASSED AWAY." THAT DAY YOU WERE A NEW PERSON SCOOBY. CLEAN AND SOBER, MADE NEW BY GODS GRACE. YES, BY GODS SAVING GRACE. AS MUCH AS I LOVE YOU SON, I KNOW GOD LOVES YOU SO MUCH MORE THAN I WILL EVER KNOW.



SO YOU SEE MY SON, BIRTHDAYS ARE SO MUCH MORE THAN CAKE AND PRESENTS, SOMETIMES IN LIFE WE JUST GET CAUGHT UP IN ALL THAT STUFF THAT WE FORGET WHAT A BIRTHDAY REALLY MEANS. AND WHAT I AM SAYING IN THIS BIRTHDAY LETTER TO YOU IS COMING FROM MY HEART AND SOUL, I KNOW IT'S DIFFERENT FROM OTHER LETTERS, BUT I JUST WANTED YOU TO KNOW THAT SINCE YOU LEFT, I HAVE THOUGHT ABOUT YOU FROM WAY BACK, EVEN IN THE WOMB. GODS CREATION, MY GIFT, YOUR LIFE. LOVING YOU YESTERDAY,
TODAY, TOMORROW AND FOR ETERNITY.



HAPPY BIRTHDAY SCOOBY. I LOVE YOU SON.


Some sad news ~ Scooby's mother, Brenda, has now joined him in Heaven.






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.
Written by Connie Dyer





Today Is My Birthday

Today is my birthday
Celebrate my life with you
And remember the good times
Not the bad and do not be sad;
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 my 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 with you, in your laughter
And in your hearts.


Today is my birthday
Learn to live again 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....

LIGHT A CANDLE

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.




With lots of love, from Scooby's mom.



This verse is on Scooby's headstone.

Who Has Gone On To Be With Angels
Healed of Mind and Spirit Where He Now Dwells
He Took The Hand of God And Went His Way
Into Eternity and Into Life Where He Shall Stay

Love

Dearest Brenda and ANGEL Scooby

Graceful in the sleep
Soft in the whisper
Deep is your sorrow
Have strength in yourself
You gave all of yourself To Scooby
You were always
Kind in your giving To Scooby
Please don't blame yourself For what happened
Scooby doesn't
He is free from that pain
He endured through His life
He is happy now
And don't forget, Brenda
He is with his Uncle Allen
Who was in Scooby's life
The apple of his eye
OPEN YOUR HEART AND LOOK UP
YOU WILL SEE HIM
HE IS THERE
HE WILL ALWAYS LOVE YOU
