My Dearest Son, it has been three months since you were taken away from me. Every day still seems like the very day that I received the call saying you had been murdered. I miss you so much. My heart is gone and I am only existing right now. I wonder how life is suppose to go on without you. You never got to get married, you never got to have children, your life just wasn't complete. There was still so much more for us to do together and now you are gone. I will never really know the truth why Travis killed you - no one will. The trial is beginning soon and I just feel like all of this is a nightmare and I am going to wake up from it and you are coming home but in all reality you will never come through the door again nor will I pick up the phone and hear your voice again. Dear God, why were you taken from me????? I just miss you so much. The pain is more then anyone can bare.

CrossKimo Kealoha
By Glori R. Manning, Tacoma WA USA

In loving memory of Kimo Kealoha
Born November 14th 1940, Died November 4th 1994
You were our family's rock, strong and unchanging, the one who could always make a wrong turn right and could brighten the darkest hour with your love and smile.

It seemed for a time that we would not survive without you but in time we were able to find peace in that your legacy of strength, courage, talent and love of life lives on, especially in your beautiful daughter. She is you...through and through and although she will always yearn to have Daddy with her, she will forever remember the gifts you gave.

We love and miss you,
Your family

CrossBessie Kee
By Beverly A. Webb, Philadelphia, PA USA
I do not stand at your grave and weep,
I know you are not there, You do not sleep,
You are a thousand winds that blow,
You are the diamond glint upon the snow,
Youy are the sunlight upon the ripened grass,
You are the gentle autum rain,
When I waken in the morning hush,
You are the swift uplifting rush,
of quite birds in circled flight,
You are the stars that shine at night,
I dont not stand at your grave and cry,
Your not there..... You did not die.

I will always love you Gram and never forget You

By Joyce Gruner, Ann Arbor, MI USA
"Sister, sisters, there were never such devoted sisters!"

We always sang that song together growing up, and how thankful I am that we got to spend the last two years of our lives being so close, after so many years of living so far apart!! You were my sister by birth, and then later in life, my sister in Christ!!! What a joy for me it was when you gave your life to Christ a few years ago! Your last two years were a glowing testimony to your family and your church, and your Jesus. I was so proud of you!!! Your Pastor called you his spiritual hero as he watched you battle the cancer so valiently. And you sang special music in your church until you could no longer stand up to do it! You had such a beautiful singing voice.

Daddy called you his "Nancy with the Laughing Face." from the song...(funny how everything in our lives revolved around Christ and music!!! Seems like we had a song for everything!!) You were always the life of the family gatherings, the one who brought the laughter and the joy to every family get together. You were so much fun... and so funny, too!!! You are now out of your pain and suffering, but we all miss you so much!!! You were and still are very loved!!

Tomorrow is not promised to anyone young or old alike and today may be the last chance to hold your loved ones tight...
So if you are waiting for tomorrow, why not do it today, for if tomorrow never comes you'll surely regret the day...
That you did not take the extra time for a kiss and that you were to busy to grant someone his or her last wish...
So hold your loved ones close today and whisper in their ear; tell them that you love them and very much and that you will always hold them dear...
Take time to say "I'm sorry, Please forgive me, Thank you, or its Ok" and if tomorrow never comes you'll have no regrets about today.

A dear, precious, beautiful person has left us and gone to be with our Lord. How I will miss my Mother. Oh she will be missed. An old book she gave me some years ago has in it a part of a sermon that has been on my mind these last few days. In the sermon it says, "God would not give you resurrection power. Before tomorrow morning you would...cry to the departed: Come back... (But God says), You cannot bring them where you are, but you can go where they are. They are more lovely now than ever." Jesus has prepared for us a place, and Jesus died on the cross for us that we would enter the place called heaven. Mother said she will see us there. In Mother's last hours on this sod we walk, she recited with surprising boldness, strength and clarity. I think to give us comfort, Psalm 23: 4-6.

Psalm 23:1-6
1 The LORD is my shepherd; I shall not want. 2 He maketh me to lie down in green pastures: he leadeth me beside the still waters. 3 He restoreth my soul: he leadeth me in the paths of righteousness for his name's sake. 4 Yea, though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I will fear no evil: for thou art with me; thy rod and thy staff they comfort me. 5 Thou preparest a table before me in the presence of mine enemies: thou anointest my head with oil; my cup runneth over. 6 Surely goodness and mercy shall follow me all the days of my life: and I will dwell in the house of the LORD for ever.

You grew up strong and left your mark. A short time in the Army, you were awarded a Bronze Star for heroic achievement in connection with military operations against the enemy and also were given a Purple Heart. With the 1st US Infantry Division, Company B, 26 Infantry 17 March 1945 when your unit's assault was impeded by a strongly entrenched enemy machine-gun, with utter disregard for personal safety, courageously crossed perilous terrain to an exposed position. Then, although painfully wounded by shrapnel, directed and accurate rifle-grenade bombardment on the hostile foes and knocked out the enemy emplacement. That's how they wrote the award up. World War 2 over, you put that behind going back to the Shreve-Wooster, Ohio area. You never talked about any of that but the papers were there for us to find after you left us. You just forgot those things and went on to work hard, literally writing the book for your work in civilian life. Married 57 years to Mom you had three sons and two daughters. You are missed. You loved fishing, boating, golf, travel (you even flew a plane for a while), and making things with wood. The furniture pieces you built for us those last few years are highly prized and receive places of honor. When any of your family goes fishing we think of you. You are missed. We can't bring you back but we will go where you are.

Your youngest son,

Four years have passed sinced you made me laugh. How quickly time has passed from when I sat on your knee and life was not full of misery. I wish I could tell you what happens each day and have you take this pain away. I know you are at peace now Dad and I should not be so mad. I try to carry on as you did remembering to live, laugh and give. I know the pain I feel will end and that we will meet again. I would give anything to hear your voice, please tell me that I made the right choice on that fateful day that your breath was all too quickly taken away. I will go on and live my life, and learn to let go of this strife. Happy Father's Day-Your Loving Daughter, Leianne
