Forever Is Such A Long Time
He's gone too soon, forever gone
forever is such a long time
we don't know when it ends,
or if it does, or if it matters.
The end for us will be
a new beginning in God's world.
We'll be reunited forever, and
forever is such a long time.
Two thoughts on forever
One makes us sad and
we want it to end. The other,
yet to begin, will never end
Forever is such a long time.
We didn't know when they left
that forever could be a day,
One that never ends.
Time has somehow passed,
the pain is still so strong, and
will last until we say "enough",
Forever is too, too, long,
Our memories last forever
maybe forever is not so long
He's our child, our man-child
He's gone, but our memories last forever.
Sweet memories of him as a baby
Gangly legs, handsome, a funny kid
A teen, with long hair, unsure of himself,
Then a man, our man-child became a dad.
We won't see him until forever ends;
And forever is such a long time.
A part of us is missing, forever lost
We've lost our son. It's the same thing.
A piece of us is gone, and cannot be replaced.
Time eventually heals and leaves a scar
That lasts forever, and forever is a long time.

I just knew from the very beginning that David was a special person. He was in the hospital for 17 days when he was born, because he was so small, and also he had breathing problems. The day finally came to bring him home and I was so proud.
David was our first son. He was born a slow learner and had a mental Illness called Bi-Polar. That just made him more special. He was a kind person that would just give you the shirt off his back. The truck drivers that ran him off the highway that night and killed him didn't know that they ended a special persons life that night. I am still trying to get them brought to justice and I will still try to the day I die.I miss him so much that there are days that I could just sit and cry, but I try to keep going and doing things for other people, because I know that he would have wanted me to. I know that he and his sister's are in heaven and they are watching over us.
We thought of you with love today,
but that was nothing new.
We thought about you yesterday,
And days before that too.
We think of you in silence,
We often speak your name.
Now all we have are memories,
And a picture in a frame.
Your memory is our keepsake,
With which we will never part.
God has you in His keeping,
We have you in our hearts

To Those I Love
If I should ever leave you whom I love
To go along the Silent Way, grieve not,
Nor speak of me with tears, but laugh and talk
Of me as if I were beside you there.
(I'd come - I'd come, could I but find a way!
But would not tears and grief be barriers?)
And when you hear a song or see a bird I loved,
please do not let the thought of me
Be sad . . .
For I am loving you just as
I always have . . .
You were so good to me!
There are so many things I wanted still
To do - so many things to say to you . .
Remember that I did not fear . . It was
Just leaving you that was so hard to face . . .
We cannot see Beyond . . .
But this I know:
I loved you so -
'twas heaven here with you!

David and his family.
The Broken Chain
We did not know that morning that God was going to call your name.
In life we loved you dearly, in death the same.
It broke our hearts to lose you,
you did not go alone,
for part of us went with you the day God called you home
You left us peaceful memories,
your love is still our guide,
and though we cannot see you, you are always by our side.
Our family chain is broken,
and nothing seems the same,
but as GOD calls us one by one, the CHAIN will link again.

Dear Angel Mom,
May the Lord give your heart a very special peace
for you to endure the loss of your son
and a heartache that never can end
He will wipe away every tear and there will be no more sorrow or pain
Love and Blessings
This is a loving gift from Susie, Mom to Angel Jason

A friend can hear a tear drop.
