A poem for Chirs by Dawn Elmore
I TRY TO BE STRONG, MY CHILD,AND LET MY LIFE GO ON.
DAYS IT'S HARD TO FIND THE STRENGTH
I NEED TO BE
I THINK ABOUT WHAT COULD'VE BEEN
WHAT SHOULD BE TODAY, I THINK ABOUT YOU
FOR ON MY MIND YOU STAY. THERE ARE NO WORDS TO TELL YOU ,
SON JUST WHAT YOU MEAN TO ME,
I HOLD YOU CLOSE INSIDE
MY HEART AND CHERISH EVERY MEMORY.
THIS PAIN AND
EMPTINESS I CARRY INSIDE
WON'T SEEM TO GO AWAY, GOD
KNOWS HOW BAD I MISS YOU...
HE HEARS MY PRAYERS EVERYDAY.
I KNOW I'M NOT ALONE IN THIS, FOR I'D
NEVER MAKE IT THROUGH,
I MET ALOT OF FRIENDS,YOU SEE,
WHO LOST THEIR ANGEL TOO.
THEY NEVER SHY AWAY FROM
ME OR PRETEND MY PAIN'S NOT REAL,
FOR THEY KNOW THE EMPTINESS I FEEL
INSIDE THAT TIME WON'T EVER
HEAL. SOME CAN SAY THEY UNDERSTAND
OR SAY WHAT'D THEY DO
IF THEY WERE ME, HOW CAN SOMEONE
WHO'S NEVER LOST A CHILD EVEN
BEGIN TO SEE? WHEN ALL YOU LOVE GOES AWAY AND
LEAVES YOU ALL ALONE, IT'S AS IF YOU'RE WORLD'S
STOPPED TURNING AND ALL YOUR DAYS ARE GONE.
YOU SEE, MY CHILD, I'VE MADE IT THROUGH BECAUSE OF
OTHERS JUST LIKE ME, ALL YOU ANGELS KEEP US CLOSE
ETERNITY! SPREAD YOUR LOVELY WINGS AROUND THE
SO SMALL AND NEW,TAKE THEM BY THEIR PRECIOUS HAND
TELL THEM YOU MISS YOUR MOMMY TOO. UNTIL WE ALL
STAY CLOSE TO ALL YOUR ANGEL FRIENDS...
LET THEM KNOW WE LOVE
AND MISS YOU ALL
AND IN HEAVEN WE'LL NEVER PART AGAIN!
WE LOVE YOU ALL,PRECIOUS ANGELS!

Hello Beautiful Christopher, Wrap your huge
angel wings around your mom and dad,
Help them to find the strength
each hour to keep going,
They hurt so much from the loss

and they know they have
a long, long road to walk without
you now, but you will always
be by their side we know don't we angel.
Send all the family huge bunches of love

The Cord / Jeri Majette ~Mom To Laquan~
God Bless U. (Memorial Friend
We are connected,
My child and I
By an invisible cord
Not seen by the eye
It's not like the cord
That connected us till birth
This cord can't be seen
By anyone on earth.
This cord does it's work
Right from the start
It bonds us together
Attached at the heart
I know that it's there
Though no one can see
The invisible cord
From my child to me.
Little did we know that morning
What sorrow the day would bring.
Our loss was great, the shock severe
To part with one we loved so dear.
We could not say our last farewell
Or even say good-bye
For you were gone before we knew
And only God knows why.

Poem to a Son / Daddy-O
A senseless act, a violent
Two lives were gone, one left alone,
We wept and prayed , and tried to claim,
A miracle that never came,
It was so wrong, the deed that happened,
Two boys were gone,
but will never be
My Chris was strong, but knew his fate,
He wanted life, but it was too late,
He always was, the one to give,
Now in his death, three more can live,
He gave the ultimate, the gift of living,
Now no one can harm him, he is forgiven,
I am so proud on this
I have a Hero who will never fade away.
Shadows fall, and life becomes so difficult to bear....
Yet sunshine comes through memories
and the love of those who care.
We may not always understand when troubles come our way
and just why sad things happen,
We cannot always say....
But may it be a comfort to know that friends are there,
and may it somehow help to know that others care.
With Deepest Sympathy,
(Daughter of Danny Chenault)
My dad is a survivor too
which is no surprise to me.
He's always been like a lighthouse
that helps you cross a stormy sea.
But, I walk with my dad each day
to lift him when he's down.
I wipe the tears he hides from others;
He cries when no one's around.
I watch him sit up late at night
with my picture in his hand.
He cries as he tries to grieve alone,
and wishes he could understand.
My dad is like a tower of strength.
He's the greatest of them all!
But, there are times when he needs to cry...
Please be there when he falls.
Hold his hand or pat his shoulder...
And tell him it's okay.
Be his strength when he's sad,
Help him mourn in his own way.
Now, as I watch over my precious dad
from the Heavens up above...
I'm so proud that he's a survivor...
And, I can still feel his love.
~ Author Unknown ~
Through his precious gift of life others live.
What a valuable thought!
He is safely at Home in our Father's House,
in a building not made by man.
God be with you Herman, on this special day.
~ Peace I leave with you; my peace I give you.
I do not give to you as the world gives. (Jn. 14:27) ~
Hugs From Heaven
When you feel a gentle breeze
caress you when you sigh,
It's a hug sent from Heaven
from a loved one way up high.
If a soft and tender raindrop
lands upon your nose,
It's just a little angel's kiss
as fragile as a rose.
When you hear a song
that fills you with a
feeling of sweet love,
It's a hug sent down from Heaven
from someone special up above.
If you wake up in the morning
to a bluebird's chirping song,
It's music sent from Heaven
to cheer you all day long.
If tiny little snowflakes
land upon your face,
It's a whisper sent from Heaven
all trimmed with angel lace.
So let your heart be joyful
if you're lonely, my dear friend,
Hugs that are sent from Heaven
a broken heart will mend.
