Beautiful butterfly xx / Kelly BALDRY XX (Joe Knowles mum xxx ) There once was a waterbug who lived in a deep pond with hundreds of other waterbugs, all of them busy daily with their usual chores and errands... and every day one of these waterbugs would climb up the stem of a water lily, up..up..up.. till it would reach a lily pad and then "poof", disappear..and never return to the rest of the waterbugs. Well, every day this waterbug would watch these mates climb up this stem and he would wonder, "Where are they going...and why do they never return?" "What is it like up there?" Some of the other bugs would reply that they had no idea, they just always wondered. So the waterbug replied "Well, if I ever decide to climb up there, I promise I will return, and I will tell you all what it is like up there." Well the day finally came that this waterbug was to have its turn up the stem of the lily pad, and up he went. When he reached the top of the lily pad he was amazed, it was such a beautiful place, lush with greenery and fragrant flowers, and wonderful warm, bright sunlight, and the melody of chirping birds and a wonderful sense of peace...then all of a sudden, he felt a change come over him. He began to develop wings like a beautiful butterfly, and he fluttered them in the warm breeze and began to fly around and explore this beautiful new surrounding. He met up with other butterflies, that he now recognized as mates that were once waterbugs, too! He flew for hours, darting in and out of flower gardens,it was a glorious place and he was in awe of it all. After a while he grew tired and fluttered back to the same lily pad. He looked down into the water below and could see his whole colony just busy as usual, running errands and chores. He tried to get their attention, fluttering his wings, but not one payed attention to him. Then he remembered his promise. But he realized now why none of the other waterbugs ever returned. As a butterfly he could not enter the water and nor would he want to, because this place was paradise. But he knew that eventually every one of those waterbugs would have their turn up the stem of that waterlily, and they too would gain their wings, and they too would be here in this paradise and never want to return to that dark place of worry and chores and errands.....and such is life....and such is death

9 weeks / Momma Derrick, son. You have been gone for 9 weeks today, and I honestly don't know how I have survived this long. Nobody understands how much I miss you. A big piece of me is gone-you. Your birthday is coming up and I am so scared. What am I supposed to do without you? Everyone keeps saying it will get easier. When? It's only getting worse. I love you so much son. I can't stand getting out of bed because I know you are not here with me. Please help me
Son/ Momma If you knew how much I love and miss you, you will come back to me.
I love you son / Momma Hi son. We just got back from Nana's. Chris got the hedges trimmed and we cooked out. I really needed you here today. I miss you so much. The kids miss you like crazy. I love you and cannot wait to see you again. I hope it's soon. This is killing me. I love you
Hey Derrick, Tony and I miss you! I was at Tony's when I found out what happened! I prayed every night for you to get better,but then my mom called and told me the news I didn't want to here. I didn't know what to say or do i just hung up the phone. walked outside. It didn't sink in until Tony came after me and asked me what was wrong. When, i told him i broke down. I cried in Tony's arms for hours. We miss you!! We'll see you in Heaven eventually.Bye

today/ Momma Hi son. Went to Nana's today, but didn't get to cook out. I went with Nana to Home Depot and had a seizure, so I had to come home. They tried to get me to go to the hospital but I wouldn't go. Nana is upset right now. She's crying and misses you so much. Send her a sign or something. I wish you were here. You could have went with Nana to pick up a new grill, then today would have went ok. We are going to try it again tomorrow. Chris is about half way finished with Nana's yard so we will go back tomorrow. I love you, son, and miss you more than words can say. I will see you again soon.
Miss you my baby / Momma Hi son. We are going over to Nana's today. Chris is going to trim Nana's hedges and then we are going to cook out on the grill. God how I wish you were here with us. I know you are here in spirit, but oh how I want you here in body as well. I love you, son.
Hi son / Momma Hi son. I went to work today. Nothing exciting happened, just the usual crap. I went by the school this morning and dropped off your pictures and your poem to be posted all next week for your birthday next Sunday. I still do not know what I am going to do that day. If I don't do anything I hope you don't get mad at me. I just don't know. I got an email from Shonna (One of your nurses). She said that even tho you didn't get to actually speak to her, she knew that you knew she was there. Maybe it was because she is so cute!!!! Anyway, the fair is next week and it won't be the same without you there. I love and miss you so much. Keep an eye on your old momma. I really need you.
LOVE ALWAYS AND FOREVER

Derrick, i can see you riding now.....
God Bless you Marsha xoxo keena
Miss you / Momma
Hi son. I didn't have an exciting day today. Just paid bills. I miss you so much. Grandma took some fall flowers for you and grandpa out to the cemetery. Colors you will like. Red, dark orange, green, bright orange, and different colors of yellow. So now you and grandpa are ready for fall. I have to work at the office tomorrow, so keep me safe. You know how those people are over there. I love you, son, always and forever. I know you have made many new friends up there. The fair will not be the same without you here. You are missed by the whole bunch. Uncle Dennis misses you and your help. Keep them all safe as I know you can.
ALWAYS AND FOREVER YOUR MOMMA
Have a good day / Momma My forever angel, Margaret's birthday is the 31st. Send her a hug. It would make her day. I love you, son. forever and always. Life is so horrible down here without you. I know you are safe and happy away from all this garbage down here. I can't wait to see you again and get a big bear hug from you. I miss you and those hugs. Remember how you used to pick me up in that big hug of yours? God how I miss that. I wish I could feel your arms around me again. I need a big hug. I found your videos from t-ball, boys club basketball, kindergarten class play, 6th grade graduation. God the memories. Keep me safe til I can be with you again. I LOVE YOU ALL DAY EVERY DAY
Thinking of you Derrick and your dear Mom / Teri Drebit (Angel Mom Of Jaime) (someone who cares )
I am so sorry for the loss of your precious son Derrick. I know all too well the pain of losing a child and the complete helplessness you feel. The heartache and grief is unbearable. Please know you are not alone. You and your family are in my thoughts and prayers. You will carry Derrick's memories in your heart and love him forever.
With Love, Teri (Jaime's Mom)
I miss you / Momma Just wanted you to know I love and miss you so much. Not a day goes by that I don't wish you were here with me. I am not doing very well when it comes to grieving. I know you wouldn't want me to "grieve". I can't help it. I am trying to keep the good memories in my mind, but it is so hard when you are not here with me. I miss you son.
yearbook/ Momma Hi son. I went and picked up your yearbook this morning. It is so hard. It's like it is getting harder every day instead of easier. I love you so much, son, and I hope you never ever forget it. I am in so much pain right now and all I can do is hope and pray that you are happy. I know you wouldn't want me to sit around and be sad, but it's so hard not to. I want you to walk thru the door and yell at me that you are hungry or something. Or just yell at me-I wouldn't care. Just as long as you were with me. I'm sorry you didn't have the kind of life you wanted. I did my best. I love you son.
8 weeks / Momma My precious angel. You grew your wings 8 weeks ago today. It feels like yesterday. It's like it gets harder instead of easier. I love you so much. I miss you more and more every day. My life is miserable now. I love you
comfort one another / Sue Rowe Sometimes it is so hard to say the right words to be of help when the pain of losing a loved one is so new and unexpected as it was.you deserve to find peace in your heart and i pray it will be soon.may god reach down and put his arms around you and help you to understand such a tragedy .may there always be someone to have a listening ear.god bless you and keep you safe .may Derrick rest in peace.
Derrick's birth / Sue Rowe (stepgrandmother)
Derrick had a hard time arriving into this world. But as soon as he entered in the world he made a lasting impression on all who saw him. A very beautiful little boy. He had the prettiest eyes I have ever seen on any baby. He just kind of drew himself into your life. He was a humble person. He is sadly missed by his entire family, getting closer to his birthdate. He would have been 18 yrs. old. So just remember, Marsha, on that day. our loss is Heaven's gain. Hold on to your faith because we have a living Saviour.
