A Mother's love is something that no one can explain, It is made of deep devotion and of sacrifice and pain, It is endless and unselfish and enduring come what may For nothing can destroy it or take that love away. . . It is patient and forgiving when all others are forsaking, And it never fails or falters even though the heart is breaking. . . It believes beyond believing when the world around condemns, And it glows with all the beauty of the rarest, brightest gems. . . It is far beyond defining, it defies all explanation, And it still remains a secret like the mysteries of creation. . . A many splendoured miracle man cannot understand And another wondrous evidence of God's tender guiding hand.

In the Tree of Life Our Roots Are Forever Interwinded / Jean Fletcher (Mom)
With their last breath those we love do not say good-bye- for love is timeless.
Instead, they leave us a solemn promise that when they are finally at rest in God, they will continue to be present to us whenever they are called upon.
Let us fear not, nor grieve beyond letting to the dparture of those we have greatly loved, for in the Tree of Life their roots and ours are forever intertwined.
Dream/ Jean Fletcher (Mom)
John I think I had your dream last night, I saw caressing your face and arms, said where have you been and I was crying. I wish you would say something to me in my dream, I am looking forward to dream of you again soon. Love you, Mom
Thinking of you John / Jean Fletcher (Mom)
Brings back so many memories of those happy days.
Broken heart / Jean Fletcher (Mom)
Once in every life someone comes along And you came to me, it was almost like a song.
You were in my armes right where you belong And we were so in love It was almost like a song.
January through December we had such a pefect year Then the flame became a dying ember All at once you weren't here.
Now my broken heart cries for you each night And it's almost like a song but it's much too sad to write.
Now my broken heart cries for you each night And it's almost like a song But it's much too sad to write.
Miss you 13 months today / Jean Fletcher (Mom)
I miss you especially today, thirteen months after you are gone. How could I have lived with out you for over year?
My heart aches to see your face again. I would give anthing to have just one dream of you. To hear your cheerful voice again to talk with you. To see your smile. Oh how I miss you saying "Hi Mom"
Every time I think of you tears form in my eyes.
Barr and I are trying to help Brandon. He is doing well in school.
I believe you are with Jesus in heaven. Eternal peace my son.
Love you forever.
I miss you / Jean Fletcher (Mom)
Light shining from the stars is visible on earth long after it has been extinguished and the stars have died.
Likewise, there are human beings whose memory shines long after they are gone from this world. That shining light piercing the darkness of night guides the path of man and shows him the way

I believe / Jean (Mom)
Every now and then, soft as breath upon my skin, I feel you come back again, And it's like you haven't been gone a moment from my side - Like the tears were never cried, Like the hands of time are holding you and me, And with all my heart I'm sure we're closer than we ever were I don't have to hear or see your - I've got all the proof I need - There are more than angels watching over me I believe, oh I believe Now when you die your life goes on - It doesn't end here when you're gone It never ends, and if I'm right Our love can even reach across eternity I believe, oh I believe Forever you're a part of me Forever in the heart of me I would hold you even longer if I can Oh the people who don't see the most Say that I believe in ghosts If that makes me crazy, then I am 'Cause I believe Oh yes, I believe There are more than angels watching over me I believe, oh I believe Every now and then soft as breath upon my skin I feel you come back again - And I believe.

My Child Never Dies / Jean Fletcher (Mom)
Each days sun rises we open our eyes to the life we have. We may not feel the warmth of the sun but it rises for us to continues our lives. We put one foot in front of the other.
Maybe a memory will make us smile today. But I look at it as though my child never dies - he went from life to life. A cross-over that we all will be taking - in God's time. Today, tomorrow, month, year or more but in God's time.
HOPE/ Jean (Mom)
Now that your life knows every darkness and sorrow,,
Now that your liftime trembles with mourning and pain,
Now that your eyes see only empty horizones,
Now that your hand touches the center of grief.
Leave yourself open to comfort and caring,
Leave yourself open to softness and friendship.
Leave yourself open to kindness and blessing,
and try to listen for the still music of HOPE
Seattle King County chapter
Message of Hope / Jean (Mom)
Message of Hope
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 life again.
Emerging from your cocoon so gently placed Sensing the freedom in the waiting sky Wings open and quickly a flight A drift in the air dancing with the wind. Aglow in the sunlight.
The message of hope touching the spirit Teaching to begin anew Transforming the wish into hope on the radiant wing of a butterfly.

Faith/ Jean (Mom)
What is faith?
Faith is believing when tragedy strikes.
It is holding on to a belief system with both hands.
Faith is questioning, looking for answers.
It is loveing God and trusting him with all of your heart
Faith is asking God for forgeiveness when doubting.
It is being honest and trying with all your might.
Faith is knowing the impossible will happen.
It is being sure with all your heart you will see
you loved one alive again.
Faith makes living life bearable.

Missing You... / Brandon Springer (Son)
Dad, you drift in and out of my thoughts every day. Every time I think of you I am reminded of your smile, your walk, how you used to cup your cig.; just little things that keep you here alive and vibrant in spirit with me everyday. I wish you were here, Mom is really missing you and I wish you could be here to support her. Even though she can not see the messages you leave her in the world, I Can and one day she will so keep at it.
It's been a year / Jean (Mom)
For my son John,
It's been a year, Septermber 26th...Since you went away. Never will I hear you voice again saying those words "hi Mom I love you".....A life turned around that day. I am thinking of you, dreaming of you each day and it seems to be all that I do these days waiting for your call, that hello, that always brightend my days. Now there is no more. Now days are darker, skies are grayer, my heart bluer, life with out you is incomplite.
When John was here I surrounded myself in the universe atmosphere held more mystery love, energy and life. Falling on my knees...before this unbearable pain, before this wrenching feeling in my heart before anxiety that plays havoc with my mind and body, before God and pray....It has been such a difficult week.
I am sending you love from here with each moment hoping you can feel my currents of love flowing towards you. My dearest son I miss you, miss you, miss you forever.
John, I miss you with every passing day, sometimes I can't believe that you are gone, I think it must be a mistake...then tears fill my eyes I remember that its true. I know we used to argue sometimes and get mad at eachother over stupid things, I wish I could go back and make it different. All I can do now to deal with those feelings is stay sober myself and be the Best Mom I can be to your son. I hope you can see Brandon and I from where you are and know that we love you so much. You would be proud of Brandon he is finally doing what he is suppossed to he is enjoying going to counseling and working out his issues, he is getting good grades. He is going to try to graduate early so he can go to college sooner. I hope you know that I am working really hard to give Brandon the best quality of life I can give. I pray that you are peaceful and know that you are missed and Loved Very Much. I love you~ Michelle Springer
