If I woke up tomorrow and my eyes could not see, In the darkness there would be beauty of a love you've shown to me. If tomorrow for some reason,some how I could not hear, there would be music of your love that will always be near. Now that you are in heaven and I cannot feel your touch, I want you to be my angel and I love you just as much.
Love always

We lost you too early and it's not fair. We didn't use the time that God gave us wisely but I'm very glad to have been able to say goodbye to when I had the chance. I love you mom and I miss you. I cherish the last 11 days you had. May God be with you.

Cross Ricardo Aguilar
By Wife Elvira, Daughters, & Grandchildren, Corpus Christi, TX USA
God sees that he is getting tired and cure is not to be. So he places his arms around him and whispers, "Come with me." With tearful eyes we let him go as he slowly slips away. Although we love him dearly; we cannot make him stay. A precious heart will stop beating, hard working hands will lay to rest. All his beautiful paintings and wonderful memories will be kept the best. For this, God will prove to us, he only takes the "Best."

There isn't a day that goes by without you in our thoughts. All the memories we shared will never be forgotten. And in our hearts we know you will always be by our side, making sure we follow down the right path leading to you. Soon we will all be reunited with you up in heaven with Our Lord and Holy Father. Until then, you are still missed and loved here on earth.

Grandpa's Arms
By: Keri Crisp

Whenever I was sad,
Or fearful of lifes harms.
I always had a place of safety,
It was in my grandpa's arms.
When it was cold and windy,
He held me close and tight.
And in my Grandpa's arms
I often spent the night.
Now he is getting older,
And others think that he is weak.
But in my Grandpa's arms,
I find the love I still seek.
And when the time is here,
And he needs me to be strong.
I will gladly hold him,
Like he held me when I was young.

Feb. 8, 1932 - April 20, 1999
Grandpa, We love you and miss you dearly! Jennifer, Kenny, Keri, Cassie, & Amanda

CrossMichael Alsobrooks Jr.
By Michelle Keene, Robert, LA USA
Michael Alsobrooks Jr. was my father. He passed away in his sleep December 17, 1999 of Congestive Heart failure. His death was a total shock to my whole family-he wasn't even sick. I'm just thankful he didn't suffer like so many people do. He was born in Bogalusa, Louisiana. At 17, he joined the Navy where he served in Vietnam. He retired after 20 years. At the time of his death he was a foreman for Boh Bros. Const. I hope and pray that he is happy and at peace. I have never felt such an emptyness that I feel now. Dad if you can hear me I love you with all of my heart and I promise to pray for your soul daily. I will keep your memory alive through your three grandchildren. There is so much I wish I could have told you.
Love Your Daughter,

To Those I Love And Those Who Love Me
When I am gone, release me, let me go, I have so many things to see and do. You mustn't tie yourself to me with tears. Be happy we had so many years.
I gave you my love and you can only guess how much you gave me in happiness. I thank you for the love you each have shown. But now it's time I traveled alone.
So grieve awhile for me if grieve you must. Then let your greif be comforted by trust. It's only for a while that we must part. So bless those memories in your heart.
I won't be far away, for life goes on. So if you need me, call and I will come. Though you can't see me or touch me, I'll be near. And if you listen with your heart, You'll hear all my love around soft and clear. And then, when you must come this way alone, I'll greet you with a smile and "Welcome Home."

Someone new has entered our eternal home above, the Heavenly Gate has opened wide to welcome the one we loved, we can not help the tears that fall our hearts need time to grieve, when earthly life has ended and a loved one has to leave. Yet even in the saddest times we know our Savior lives and we can trust completely in the promise that he gives, that in a glad reunion with the Lord our loved waits to welcome us in joy with no more tears beyond the gate.

On August 10th he was going to get his drivers permit. He was going to be 16. He was a good brother and would have made a good father and husband. He was always nice and never tried to hurt anybody. My whole family will miss seeing his face.

"Where I have gone, I am not small. My souls is as wide as the world is tall. I have gone to answer the call,the call of the of the One who takes care of us all.

I miss you so much little brother, we all do. You are the first thing on my mind in the morning, at night before I go to bed and through out the day. I feel as if this is a bad dream, but it isn't. I remember when you were a little boy 4-6 years old and you use to run around our home and say that you were going to be like "Ponch on CHIPS", you became more than that. You knew what you wanted to be at such a young age and you accomplished it, and also became a Detective at 24 years old. We are so proud of you Hugito and always will be. It is an honor to have you as a hero not only in our family, but in the Doraville Police Department family as well. Thank you Lord for allowing my family and I to have 24 years with Hugo. I miss not seeing you, speaking to you, picking on one another, and not being able to be finger tips away from you. We are all trying to be so strong through all of this, and I know that you and the Lord are helping all of us through it all. Lord please watch over my little brother and our family. We miss you Bato Loco!!! God Bless You.

On Sunday, November 18, 2001, the William Mason High School Marching Band, and others from the Mason community, lost a dear friend. Scott Asbrock was always a happy, smiling student but on this particular Sunday as he was crossing a street to a Bengals game, he was struck by an out of control SUV. The vehicle was being driven by a paraplegic who struck other Bengal fans to the ground that day. Scott however was the only victim who died. He was a 15 year old freshman at William Mason High School and on Mondays announcements his name, along with two other people who were known to the Mason district, were announced and the school was hit with sadness. Three lives lost over one sad weekend, but Scott's name never to be forgotten.

Mom, You were the best mother. You were a true example of a Christian because you walked the walk. Even when the doctors told you that you would die and it would be a painful death you trusted in God. Up until the day you closed your eyes and said goodbye to this world you had TBN on and never once stopped praising God. I miss you so much and I wish you could have met your grandchildren.

Dad, your suffering wasn't as much as mom's, but you suffered in your mind. You excepted Jesus on your death bed with me and the kids surrounding you in prayers and a nurses aid. You left this world a week before my fourth child was born. You left me memories of your unconditional love.
