By Stacey Fernandez, Bakersfield, Ca
My Dearest Brother,
I miss you so much. You were a part of this family that no one can compare to. You were too young to go to Heaven, but I know God needed another Angel. You were an Angel before you left this place. You were loved by all who knew you, and you are missed by all who knew you. You have Two beautiful Nephews now. Tyler and Joshua, and Tyler is more and more like you everyday. For that we are grateful. We will one day see you again, and we will rejoice together in Heaven. Keep watching over us. I love you.
Love, Stacey

CrossPaul William Gaspar
By Lisa Patrick, Sioux Falls, SD USA
God saw he was getting tired and a cure was not to be
So he put his arms around him and whispered come with me
With tearful eyes we watched him suffer
And saw him fade away
Although we loved him deeply,
We could not make him stay
A golden heart stopped beating,hardworking hands to rest
God broke our hearts to prove to us
He only takes the best

Paul died September 5,1994 after a battle with a rare neurological disease. He was only 27. He left behind a beautiful daughter Ashley. We will miss you always.

We love you:
Lisa and Ashley

I give my love to my grandparents. May they know that the Gelula family still remembers them both and they are all ways in our hearts. Here is a poem dedicated for them.

Our Beloved Grandparents
As you know you left without warning.
We all morned the days that you both died.
I wept and cried for days in and days out.
You left us, Jonathan and Christina Gelula,
a part of you both that we would never forget.
We cherish the moments we spent in New Jersey and we both loved you with all of our hearts.
You will be remembered for ever and always my beloved grandparents..

CrossKen George
By Lynn, IN USA

For Ken George...

You lived your life loving and protecting others. You asked so little. You gave so much

To the family
To your country
To the world

The Lord blessed me by having you pass through my life. It was such a short time. Yet time doesn't measure the love that can build. I found that love for you. For your family.
Though we all hurt because you are not physically here with us now, we can have peace of mind knowing that you are with the Lord. And, someday, we will meet. Never to part again.

You fought so many fights for our country. You died because of fighting Cancer and perhaps that was caused from the Agent Orange in Vietnam. Now, you have peace at last.

Thank you God, for sharing Ken with us for 47 years. Please God give Ken's family peace of mind. Give me the words to help them.

FlowersAlice Marie German
By Alice, Cincinnati Ohio
To me you were my Angel sent from God above. For there is no greater gift than that of a Mothers love. God holds you in his arms now. As you did me when I was small. I wanted to let you know Mother you gave me the greatest love of all. The day God called you home I cried and cried and cried. Oh what I would not give to still have you by my side. All though you are gone, we are truly not apart, because you will always and forever be right here in my heart. So even though you are gone, even with all the tears I have cried. I know that you are still with me. For you are the Angel by my side. I Love and miss you Mom.

Cross Burkey Richard Gibson, Jr March 17, 1978 - April 27, 2004
By Tessie Gibson, Oneida, KY
In loving memory of my son who died in an auto accident on the Daniel Boone Parkway on April 27, 2004

In retrospect unbidden thoughts lay scattered within our hearts....If only....
If only we could part the clouds and plead, "Please, God, don't let this be."
The one common factor is that losing anyone to the grim specter of death is never easy, but the loss of our children must be the most painful of all. Maybe one day we can see the right perspective and perhaps come to accept that we were powerless to stop such tragedy no matter how desperately we want. We often wonder why the power of love cannot starve off death.. But even death has no control over the boundaries of love. It seems we all have the right questions, but no one has the right answers.

We must stand amid this pain with our hearts melting into his memory - while his spirit soars unencumbered with the angels. Farewell my precious son, morning has broken...your shattered mom This certainly says it best, "They that love beyond the world cannot be separated by it. Death cannot kill what never dies." William Penn Anyone else who has lost a child and would love to talk about it can contact me at

To my beloved friend.

...Sweet, shut your eyes,
The wild fireflies
Dance through the fairy neem;
From the poppybole

A little lovely dream.

In golden light
The stars around you gleam;
On you I press
With soft caress
A little lovely dream. --Sarojini Naidu

It broke our hearts to lose you but you didn't go alone.My heart still aches in sadness,and secret tears still flow, what it meant to lose you, no one will ever know. It wouldn't even be so bad, if someone told me why, why you had to leave that day, why I'm all alone No farewell words were spoken no time to say goodbye, you were gone before I knew it, and only God knows why.

Don't grieve for me, for now I'm free, I'm following the path God had laid you see. I took his hand when I heard him call, I turned my back and left it all. I could not stay another day, to laugh, to love, to work, or play. Tasks left undone must stay that way, I found that peace at the close of the day. If my parting has left a void, then fill it with remembered joys. A friendship shared, a laugh, a kiss, Oh yes, these things I will miss. Be not burdened with times of sorrow. I wish you the sunshine of tomorrow. My life's been full, I savored much. Good friends, good times, a loved ones touch. Perhaps my time seemed all too brief. Don't lengthen it now with undue grief. Lift up your hearts and peace to thee. God wanted me now; he set me free. I miss you so much Dave, i will never, ever forget you.

My dear grand-mother left this world almost forty years ago when I was only 11 years old. There has not been one single day that she hasn't crossed my mind in all those years. She was a terrific woman and believe in God and I know without a doubt she is with our Lord. She wrote a letter three months before she died at the age of fifty three that said she had lived a good life and she wanted her grand-children brought up in church to know God so that one day we could all be united in heaven. I loved her like she was my mother and I have no doubt she continues to watch over me. I see her often in my dreams and she forever lives on in my heart.

I miss our long talks about life, I miss sitting there playing cards, I miss the way you would squeeze my hand or pinch my butt. You were the best. You were kind and accepting of all that I am.
