You think that we are gone, but we didn't go far Look up to Heaven, We are like bright shining stars
You think that we are gone, but we're never apart We are the warmness you feel deep in your heart
You think that we are gone, but we're always around In your thoughts and your prayers We can always be found
You think that we are gone and it's time that you fear We are never so far that we can't dry your tears
You think that we are gone, close your eyes and you'll see Three angels of God, now happy and free
You think that we are gone and you're drowning in grief Just know that God loves us and you'll find some relief
You think that we are gone as you cry silently in the night But when God calls you home, We'll be there in your sight! ~UK~

Thirteen years have now past since you left the arms of your family on March 19, 2003. Still feels like yesterday. Thoughts of you bring a warm feeling to my heart and a smile to my face. You are loved and missed.

Happy 20th Birthday Austin
We never need a special day To bring you to our mind, For days without a thought of you, Are very hard to find. Thinking of you on your birthday, With sadness in our hearts, For a very special someone, From whom we had to part. We cannot send a birthday card, Your hand we cannot touch, But God will take our greetings To you,the one, we love so much.

Crossing the Bar
Sunset and evening star, And one clear call for me! And may there be no moaning of the bar, When I put out to sea, But such a tide as moving seems asleep, Too full for sound and foam, When that which drew from out the boundless deep Turns again home. Twilight and evening bell, And after that the dark! And may there be no sadness of farewell, When I embark; For though from out our bourne of Time and Place The flood may bear me far, I hope to see my Pilot face to face When I have crossed the bar.

And we must wait here for awhile Until it's time to go. Although we carry on, we mourn, Because we miss them so; And through the years, God dries our tears... He said, "My Peace I Give."
And for each hour we have the power, Because our Savior lives.
I MISS YOU / D.

They spent the night looking up at the sky "Why are the stars so far away, when they are so beautiful?" she asked He told her, "Beautiful things, no matter the distance can always be felt."
She says nothing at all, but simply stares upward into the dark sky and watches, with sad eyes, the slow dance of the infinite stars.

LOVE is…. the silence, the reminders, the memories…
Those special memories of you will always bring a smile If only we could have you back for just a little while
As your heartbeat stopped and your eyes slowly closed, God whispered to His angels to bring you HOME.
Nothing in life prepares us for losing someone we love

March 6, 2015 Memories of You / ..
Time stood still the day you died Those moments of the past frozen In hearts broken by death A part of us remained FOREVER in the past A part of you continued ALWAYS WITH US Now and Forever
You gave no one a last farewell, Nor ever said good-bye You were gone before we knew it and only God knows why. A million times we will miss you A million times we will cry If love alone could have saved you, You never would have died. In life we loved you dearly, In death we love you still. In our hearts you hold a place, no one else can fill. It broke our hearts to lose you, but you didn't go alone, for part of us went with you the day God took you home. We will meet again someday We know in a better place, We thank God He made you our brothers While you were here on earth. The fact that you’re no longer here will always cause us pain But you’re forever in our heart of hearts until we meet again.

Dakotah & Austin
You may not be where we intended for you to go that day but you are now exactly where God meant for you to stay.
God knows how much I miss you guys each and every day. Every morning when I open my eyes, I tell myself that Today is Special and Give Thanks. Every day, every minute, every breath truly is a gift from God. "I don't regret growing older with each passing day, It just saddens me because it is a privilege denied to too many whom we feel died too soon."
God's Plan on Heaven's time God's will be done

I picture your face and I know it's true another minute flew by just thinking of you
I sit here and I wonder I dream and I daze people all around me try to follow my gaze
Smiling and grinning wondering too how many minutes flew by just thinking of you
I close my eyes and what do I see your beautiful face staring back at me
I am always happy dreaming about you I could sit here for hours just thinking of you ~~~~~~~
Memory is a way of holding onto the things you love, the things you are, and the things you never want to lose.
