On St. Patrick's Day this year my Grandmother Rosemarie passed away. My Grandfather will be 83 on August 9th, and I try anything and everything to keep him smiling. There was a song that I keep in my head almost all the time. I'm not sure when it was written, or who even sang it, but it goes "Smile a little smile for me, Rosemarie..." That was Gram, always smiling. Some days when I think about her I can smile, but there are other days I just can't. Besides Grandpa, I was the last person to see her alive, and most days I do nothing but miss her. She's up there and knows I love her no matter what.
I'm writing a few lines about my dearest firstborn son Leniere, who was murdered on 08\01\00 by someone who called me mom and ate my food. My son would have been 27 on 08\09\02. He had three children, ages 6,4 and 2. He was strong, loving and would give you the shirt off his back. Please, never underestimate the severity of jealousy. The green eyed monster can make murderers out of man. His senseless murder has forever altered the lives of so many people. I was in the medical field and now suffer from severe depression and can't deal with people anymore. I have no trust. Please pray with me and for me to overcome this and get my life back again one day! To my son Leniere, Happy Birthday, 08\09\75. I just had one too! 08\12 the day I brought you home from the hospital 27 years ago. Seems like yesterday. Thank You Lord for Leniere, even if you just loaned him to me for a while.

You are making an impact on even those of us that did not ever really know you. Your mother came into my life years ago and then we lost touch - until recently. I know what a good mother she was and how proud she was of you. You have physically left us but you will remain in our hearts and minds forever. You are up there looking down upon us all and keeping many of our loved ones in good company until we meet again. We have to have faith and believe that things happen for a reason. I can already see that this is true you are an angel. Be strong, take care - with love, Renee 8/28/02
Dearest April; Today, tomorrow and forever, you will remain in our hearts and minds for you are part of our every waking moment on this earth. No matter how long it will take, we look lovingly forward to seeing your bright smile, happy face, and being in your presence once again. Until that time, we send our love to you daily; your Mother and I never forgetting what you meant to us and all that you could have been. Your life slipped from your grasp, and we can only stand by for now, and look to the future to be reunited with you. May God bless you eternally, and keep you in his loving hands forever. With love, Ken 08/28/02
Sweet April we miss you dearly. Daddy cries every day. You've only been gone three weeks but it seems a lifetime ago since we heard your voice or saw your beautiful face. You are always on our mind and always in our prayers. Marilyn & Dad 08/28/02

constantly being said for her in this time of sorrow. All our love,

We go along in life feeling that things happen for a reason but how could loosing you have a reason. If I could of had a chance of changing the steps to your future I would of because you had such a future but now its gone and now I have to try to repair broken hearts. Thats a tough act to follow and its an
impossible feat to accomplish. I wish you peace but if you can somehow give me guidance to give peace to the people you left behind I sure would appreciate it! We Loved you April!

In Memory of Those Who Lost Their Lives One Year Ago Today
It has been now 20 days since you choose to leave the earth and
go to heaven to be free of suffering. I miss you so so much. I'm so
sorry that I wasn't there to rescue you. God knows I tried. But this will
haunt me forever. I know you truly loved me and you know I love you. I
can't imagine life here without you, to think I can't hold you, kiss
you or dance with you anymore. We had so much fun dancing. You were such
a show off (because you danced so well) and you were so proud of me. I
know you really tried hard to battle your gambling sickness and we went
through alot, me and you.
No one could ever take your place and I will love you forever. Please
stay near me and be my angel now.
Till we dance again, love always,
It's just been your 2nd anniversay, since God chose to take you so suddenly. To think all those years of headaches, they didn't detect an anurysm. It makes me so mad. You finally found a happy life and then it was gone. Did Joe meet up with you? I hope you 2 are singing and dancing together-he's a great dancer. I miss you both.
its now been 29 days since you left me. Its not getting any
easier. I just wish that you could tell me that you love me, forgive me and that you are watching over me. I really need to hear that. How hurt and alone you must have felt-and its killing me that I should have known
where you were, instead I stayed home waiting for you - praying like and idiot but it looks like the devil won this time' Loving you forever,
it has now been 37 days. I am going crazy. I can't stand this feeling of missing you. I don't know how I can make it through. I know I can only take it one day at a time and I'm trying but its hard. I need you. I miss you and I never could handle change well. This is one hell of a change, and I hate it. I just want to die too.
still always in my heart Ben. we miss you!!
we love you!! We know that you come to us in our sleep!!

My best friend Victoria passed away this October. She was 15 years old.
She died of Anorexia Nervosa. The previous summer, both her parents
were killed in a tragic accident. She never emotionally recovered from
There's not much I can say that hasn't already been said. All I can say
is it broke my heart. A lot of people were touched by her beauty.
The nickname she had chosen on a forum where she turned to for solace,
probably the only place she shared her feelings besides my ear, was
SilverSeraphim. She truly has risen now. Please wish for the her to be in
a happier place, in peace and finally without all that pain.
Think of my angel
I pray for her that she and her parents are together again and in
peace. It is sad what happened to her and my heart goes out to you PPR.
*hug* From her posts she was a beautiful girl and the world will
certainly miss her. I hope she is free from her pain.
She was a courageous, beautiful person... so full of life.
You had just started to have some
happiness in your life. I wish that I had said I
love you a whole lot more.

Remember how we use to sit on that old front porch swing and sing our
hearts out? Well, in my heart, I can still hear you singing. I was
blessed to have twenty four wonderful years with you. I love you and miss
"The other night dear, as I lay sleeping, I dreamed I held you in my
arms. When I awoke dear, I was mistaken. And I hung my head and cried.
You are my sunshine, my only sunshine. You make me happy, when skies are

Light A Candle
And I will Light A Candle for you
To shatter all the darkness and bless the times we knew.
Like a beacon in the night, the flame will burn bright
And guide us on our way.
Oh today I light a candle for you.
The seasons come and go and I'm weary from the change
I keep on moving on but you know it's not the same
And when I'm walking all alone, do you hear me call your name?
Do you hear me sing the songs we used to sing?
You filled my life with wonder, touched me with surprise
Always saw that something special deep within your eyes
And through the good times and the bad we carried on with pride
OH Brad we miss you so much! Those big blue eyes and that beautiful smile. We know that you are in God's arms now and some day we will all be together for eternity. Life on this earth is just a brief stop til we are called home. We know there is no time in Heaven . For you it will be just a few minutes that we have been apart. For us it is so much longer! Brad we know when we close our eyes for the last time, the first person we will see will be you with your arms open wide, waiting to take us to meet our Lord! We love you so much son!
Mom and Dad
My heart aches continually for you. I miss the warmth of your big hugs and your phone calls that would always cheer me up! So many people miss you. It's amazing to hear all the good things you had done for people that I didn't know about. I love you so much. It's hard to be happy. I feel very alone. I had a dream the other night that you were
making me laugh. I woke myself up laughing. I hope to see you in my dreams again, real soon. I still need you. "Who loves you Baby"
Hi Honey! I realize wrote to you yesterday and I mis-spelled "loves" oops! It's a beautiful fall day outside and the sun is shining so bright! I feel like your with me when the sun shines so bright and warm. I
love you. Thank you for watching out for me. miss you soooo much! "you are so special to me" Big Hugs!!!!
Brad Lebron Corder
Brad, I miss you more and more each day. I stop by and visit when I can but it will never be the same without you here. We will never forget you and you will remain in our hearts forever! Loving you daily! Your Aunt Bobbie, Billy and Jimmy Kelley, Oh yeah and of course Ralph. LOVE
April,we never met,but I know your mother,Donna.She has been so sweet
to me,as I grieve over the loss of my love(Jack),who I'm sure you've met already. She is such a strong person for reaching out to comfort me through my pain while she is also in great pain from losing you.I know I'll get to know you when it's my time to go,from what I hear you were a truly,beautiful,loving person on Earth,which I can tell you got from your mother.
Please light a candle for my dear sweet Nephew/Brother Aaron. We grew up in the same house and we never thought of each other as being anything else but brother and sister. Aaron passed away December 13, 2002. It was a sudden, and unexpected happening that chilled me to the bone. I am trying my best to let go but I can't do it right now, and don't know if I ever can. There is a great big hole in my chest where my heart use to be. I need to honor him as much as is humanly possible. He deserves it. He touched many people in many ways. I was lucky enough to have had him for 23 years and I loved him unconditionally. Please help me. Please.
My Grandmother was one of the greatest and kindest people I know. When
her husband died, she didn't think of herself, she first thought of her
children. She was always fun and nice, and I'll miss her.
In loving memory of those who aren't with us this year, those that are celebrating the birth of our Lord with Him
