Happy Birthday, Derrick! / Dianne White/Mom Of Angel Nicholas
I care xoxox / Cindy Mommy To Angel Kaydence
your celebration / Momma Hi son. We just got back from your resting place. All went well. We tied the balloons and the kids each took turns cutting the strings and letting them go. I cried and cried. I can't help it, son. I miss you so much. You were going to get keys to a truck for your birthday if you were still here with us. I guess God needed you for something else. I miss you and love you more and more every day.
For Derrick on his birthday / Rachel's Mom I read on Derrick's site that he loved horses so I searched the net for poems about horses and I found this one. It's really about friendship, and I know this has nothing to do with birthdays, but I thought Derrick would probably like it. I especially like the last verse. I think Derrick will be eternally young and that maybe he is riding free on a beautiful horse in that perfect land. May God be with his loving family today as they celebrate his precious life.
Riding Wistful Horses by Alastair Adamson
Sitting here and thinking how My life much richer is now For all the ones I've chanced upon And the tapestry that was spun
There was a time when no one came No friends to play in childhood game No one to shelter from the rain Nor the adolescent pain
Yet in my inner heart I knew Secrets rare and secrets true Were wishes horses, all would ride Other dreamers by my side
Then one day I dropped my guard I never did something so hard In my heart I let others in And found I had a friend
By one's and two's they gathered near Soothing all my darkest fears A tapestry we began to weave And I once more believe
For youth need never fade away As long as I can dream and play On wistful horses I will ride With other dreamers at my side
Thought I would send some cake your way even though Jesus does not need my help.
Marsha, my thoughts are with you and family today and I am praying God will give you peace & comfort today and always.
God Bless Ashley's Mom Sue

Just wanted to say... / Momma

to derrick and his momma / Stephanie Key (Friend)

Happy 18th / Tricia Key (Friend) Derrick I just thought I would come to say HAPPY BRITHDAY!!!!! I hope it is the GREATEST you've ever had.... I will never forget the day when you left us all for a better place... Keep your head up high for your mom and your family... I get on here everyday and see your mom has wrote you something and she as well as the rest of your family are in my prayers.... And again HAPPY 18th BIRTHDAY!!!!!!!!
We will cry all the time until we meet with our precious sons again. My son passed away September 3, 2005, and I have not yet had one day that I have not sobbed uncontrollably. Kevin was my only child and he was viciously taken from me. I don't know if we ever stop crying but I have come to the conclusion that the amount of tears we cry for our sons is the amount of love that we have for them, and obviously our love is forever, so I would imagine the tears will be forever also. I'm so sorry about Derrick. Mothers should not have to bury their children under any circumstances I feel. I'm thinking of you and keeping Derrick in my thoughts.
nothing special / Momma Hi son. I went to work today and didn't have to put up with people's crap. The ones I evicted last week are gone, so it had quietened down a lot. I love you, son. A part of me is gone. It left when you did. Keep your eye on your grandma Banks. She needs you close by. I love you

Wish me luck / Momma My heart is aching and I don't know what to do. Your birthday is almost here. God I miss you. This house is so empty without you here. Matt is getting so big and into everything. I must say, he has your personality. Has to be the center of attention, just like you. You'd think he had your blood in him!! Just teasing. He's an adorable puppy. I just wish you were here to help me. The kids are going to help me with the balloons on Sunday. Watch over us all and keep us safe. I love you son. Send some special dreams to Caitlyn. She really misses you.

I'll Lend You A Child / Rachel Barnes' Mom
I'll Lend You A Child by Edgar Guest
"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's dead. It may be six or seven years Or twenty-two or three, But will you, till I call him back, Take care or him for Me? He'll bring his smiles to gladden you, And should this 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 world over In search for teachers true, And from the throngs that crowd Life's lanes, I have selected you. Now will you give him all your love, Nor count the labor vain, Nor hate Me when I come to call to Take him back again?" I fancied that I heard then 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've planned, We'll brave the bitter grief that come And try to understand."
I wish I was One of the Lucky Ones / Diane/ Mom To Angel Jimmy Brozzetti
Were you one of the Lucky Ones?
Did you get to meet the one that lived every day as if it were his last?
Did you see that smiling face, did you hear his infectious laugh?
Did you know the one that had a hug for even the ones that fussed at him?
Did you ever go somewhere and know when the life of the party arrived?
Did you know the one that could make the best of the worst situation?
Did you feel like you were a special person around him?
Did you ever feel so loved?
Were you one of the lucky ones... that got to meet my son?
fairgrounds/ Momma Hi son. We just got back from the fairgrounds. They were judging the horses tonight. You are missed so much. Bev really needed you tonight to help her check in the animals and stuff. I could feel your presence there and I think Bev could too. I love you so much. Life is so miserable right now. Your birthday is coming up. I hope we get to go to your resting place and release your balloons. Please watch over me, son. I need your help.
