Somewhere / Jean (Mom)

Somewhere a journey begins at the end of the worldly existence we know,

Somewhere a path stretches over the stars and rivers of memories flow,

Somewhere a silence is heard far away and brightness of day fills the night,

Where the trials of life are resolved into peace--when a soul finds its way to the light.


God bless your soul

Septemter 26th is your Heaven's day anniversary  / Jean (Mom)

The time has past today is 5 years since you left to heaven.

The time has come for me to release you free to fly high above this world where the flowers forever bloom and the ultimate love fills the space.

I know your in heaven where the God is.  I pray every day that your happiness and God forgive your sins give you comfort.

In my heart forever  / Jean (Mom)

The time has come for me to release you

free to fly high above this world. 

Where the flowers forever bloom and

The ultimate love fills the space.


In my attempt to try to keep you

I've only been able to hold the anger

Not realizing that I have tyo let you go

I can't hold on.


I'll no more keep your pain alive

I won't try to hold you down

I'll let you fly on to higher ground.


My grief has left a numbness

as if this isn't real

 You are in my hearrt forever

but I know I have

to let you free.


Soar high Laugh as a child that feels the joy of

the moment.

Play among the rivers flowing through the hills.

Roam the field of daisies.

Fly to the top of the mountains.


With closed eyes I see you among the flowers

high above the clouds.



presence blows through me with the breeze

Your smile beams down on through the sun.

The full moon brings the light of your laughter to my mind.

And the butterfly in all its splendor reminds me

of your beauty

and freedom now

Leaving your love for me lingering in my world.

Message of Hope  / Jean (Mom)

A whispered wish of remembrance

Silent words of loss

A song of good bye

An unspoken prayer for lasting peace

A message of hope

Rejoice for

the spirit that has passed.

Release the sorrow and the sadness.

Rebuild a life again.

Emerging from your cocoon so gently placed Sensing the freedon

in the waiting sky

Wings open and quickly a flght

A drift in the air dancing with the wind

Aglow in the sunlight.

The message hope touching the spirit

Teaching to begin anew

Transforming the wish into hope

On the radiant wing of a butterfly.

I wish I wish upon the star  / Jean (Mom)

I wish I wish upon a star

That I could see just where you are

To watch you smile and laugh again

For that might help to ease this pain


I wish I wish that this would end

Somehow my broken heart would mend

Each day each night continues on

This game of life I'm but a pawn


I wish I wish this were untrue

That I would wake and be with you

To hug you close to me once more

To have you race right through the door

I wish I wish for no more tears

For I have cried for all these years

I'm tired and so full of grief

I just would like a bit of peace


I wish I wish for better days

I have begged and I have prayed

This is not how life should be

I need you so and you need me


I wish I wish that they could see

That normal chnged that day for me

I will never be the same

Denial has become my game


I wish I wish upon a star

to travel up to where you are

To never have to say good-bye

Forever to be by your side


I loving memory of Joey and his heavenly buddie


Falling Apart  / Jean (Mom)
I seem to be falling apart my attention span can be measure insecond my patience in minutes.  I cry at the drop of a hat I forget things constantly.   The mornig toast burns daily.  I forget to sign checks.  Half of everythings in the house is misplaced.  Anxiety and restlessness are my constant companions.  Rainy days seems extra dreary.  Sunny days are an outrage.  Other people's pain and frustration seem insignificant.  Laughing happy people seem out of place inthe world.  It had become routine to feel half crazy.  I am normal. . . .
Twinkling Stars  / Jean (Mom)

I miss you forever...

What if the brilliant twinkling stars that bring the dark night sky to life are windows looking out of heaven?

and at the very moment when we're wishing on those stars hoping  that the loved ones we have lost are happy safe and free...

Meibe they are looking at those same stars from the other side making the same wish for us sending us all their love.


Human / Jean (Mom)

It is so human to feel such loss of important people and things gone.  The pain and sense of longing is real easpecially in death we lose a bond.

The stages sand levels of mourning vary from immediate raw hurt from the core to the slow dull ache of loneliness for the person or for the time before.

Brace yourself the bumpy ride begings it comes in waves sometimes surprising times when one is unaware that the love now lost is not there and tears are rising.

Time does heal but no one can predict now long time takes ot allow the pain to lessen that once all-encompassing for soft loving sadness that will remain.

Miss you John  / Jean Fletcher (Mom)

I miss you so much.  I was lit candles this morning noticed Curtiss Morgan lit candle for you he ask you not use hard drugs he misses you also Marilyn Barnes lit the candle she also miss you.  All of your friends are miss you.

 People do not die for us immediately, but remain bathed in a sort of aura of life which hears no relation to true immortality but through which they continue to occupy our thoughts is the same way as when they were alive.  It is as though they were traveling abroad.

A grieving parent is. . .  / Jean (Mom)

A grieving parent is someone who will never forget their child no matter hos painful memories are

A grieving parent is someone who yearns to be with their dead but cannot conceive leaving their living onesl.

A grieving parent is someone who has part of a heart as the rest is buried with their child.

A grieving parent is someone who begs for relief rom memories which plague.  them and then feels guilty when they get it.

A grieving parent is someone who can cry or laugh at the drop of a hat whenever they remember their belove child.

A grieving parent is some who feels as if they just lost their child yesterday not matter how much time has passed.

A grieving parent is someone who wants to help others who have lost loved ones because somehow their loss is theirs all over again.

Years have come and gone 54 moths since you left to heaven.

Memory / Jean (Mom)

Memory can tell us only what we were

In company with those we loved:

It cannot help us find out what each of us

Alone just now become Yet no person is really alone:

Those who live no more still echo

Within our thoughts and words

And what they did has become

 Woven into what we are.


By Richard File

Ode / Jean (Mom)


What through the radiance which was once so bright

Be now for ever taken from my sight

Through nothing can bring back the hour

Of splendor in the grass of glory in the fflower;

We will brieve not rather find

Strength in what remains behind

In the primal sympathy

Which habving been must ever be;

In the primal sympathy

Which habing beeen must ever be;

In the soothing rhoughts that springer

Out of human suffering

In the faith that looks through death

In years that bring the philosophic mind.

William Wordsworth

Memorial 53 Months today  / Jean (Mom)

Today is 53 months since you went to heaven.  It's hard to love without you my life not same.  My heart has kept on beatin although it's filled with pain.  Silently I'm grieving in this world that has no clue I never will be over... The love I have for you.

While missing you forever I am missing you alone.

The pain of death  / Jean (Mom)

The pain of death is not with those who have passed on .  It lives in the hearts of those who remain behind.

An unbearable ache that grows with each empty day.  Days without our children;comforting them holding them dry their tears and sharing their laughter.

Our children have passed into a place of calmness comfort and peace.

But for us who remain we are embarking on a lonely journey a sad and tearful voyage to which we see no end.

Many will travel this mournful journey yet along our path we will find new friends compassionate loving and understanding.

We will mutually share out pain and gain strenth as we move through this journey and learn to accept that life does move forward.

I know we will always live with this pain but will the hurt will lessen as we continue this jouney?

I like to think that I can go on because my child is always with me always in my heart.

I am conforted by the picture in my mind that voice that only I hear.  If only I could teach out and hold my sweet child again.

This pain is not benevolent; it has ravaged my very being.  It has fractured my spirit and devastated my soul. 

I pray for a gentle respite from this pain.  For tender moments of grace and beauty when I can be joyfully immersed in precious memories of child  And find solace.

I keep it hidden whthin  / Jean (Mom)

It's hard to live without you my life is not the same my heart has kept on beating although it's filled with pain.

No one cares to listen I keep it hid sithin sorrow that is endless it lives deep in my skin.

Silently I'm grieving in this world that has no clue I never will be over the love I have for you.

I wish someone would notice or ask how I've been  as day have turned to years now I keep it hid wothin.

I cry when no ones looking this sorrw is my own  while missing you forever I am missing you alone.

Unfinished Symphonies  / Jean (Mom)

That time runs out before one's life's work is completed by no means makes it worthless.

The fragmentary quality of like does not detract from its meaning.

It is not from the length of its span that we can ever draw conclusions as to life's meaningfulness.

We cannot after all judge a biography by its length by the number of pages in it.

We must judge by the richness of it contents.

The exuberant life of one who has died young certainly has more content and meaning than the xistenced of some long-lived dullard.

Sometimes the "unfinished " are among the most beautiful symphonies.

Another month is here 51 months has passed since you left to heaven.  I believe you are busy with God's work

Another year  / Jean (Mom)

Another year has passed on by....without you here with me Although the world must think I'm's only what they see.

If they looked deep within my soul...they's see my broken heart then they would know that I'm not fine since forced to live apart.

When losing you that tragic day...I lost who I once was was when asked why I'm no longer me... My answer is because. 

I can't expect that they could wrong life has become there simply is no answer...for this loss can't be undone.

so I've spent many hours...countless turned to years another year has passed on by...another million tears.
