MY DARLING JOEY,
THIS WILL BE THE LAST TIME I WILL WRITE IN
I WILL LOVE YOU FOREVER AND EVER, I WILL MISS EVERY DAY
THAT YOU ARE NOT WITH US.
I HOPE YOU LIKE THE SMALL PART OF YOUR LIFE AS YOU WOULD LIKE TO SEE IN PICTURES.
I HOPE I HAVE DONE YOU JUSTICE ON THE PAGES I HAVE DONE
YOUR FAVORITE PICTURES, SONGS, YOUR ATHLETIC ABILITY AND
YOUR LOVE FOR EVERYONE.
I CAN FINALLY SAY GOOD-BYE, INSTEAD OF SEE YOU LATER.
TILL THEN MY SWEET SON, I WILL FIND YOU WHEN IT'S MY TURN
TO COME TO THE PEARLY GATES.
LOVE YOU ALWAYS AND FOREVER MOMMY 4/30/2014

A SMALL PORTION OF HIS SHORT LIFE HERE ON EARTH.
REST IN PEACE MY LOVE AND WE WILL SEE YOU WHEN GOD
FEELS IT'S OUR TIME............................

I'll lend to you for a little while, A child of mine", He said, "For you to love the while he lives , And mourn when he is dead. It may be six or seven years, Or twenty-two or three, But will you, till i call him back, Take care of him for Me? Hell bring his charms to gladden you, And should his stay be brief, You'll have his lovely memories, As solace for your grief. I cannot promise he will stay, Since all from earth return, But there are lessons taught down there, I want this child to learn. I've looked the wide world over In my search for teachers true, And from the throngs that crowd life's lanes I have selected you. Now will you give him all your love, Not think the labor vain, Nor hate Me when I come to call, To take him home again. I fancied that i heard you say, "Dear Lord, Thy will be done. For all the joy this child will bring, The risk of grief we'll run. We'll shelter him with tenderness, We'll love him while we may, And for the happiness we've known, We'll forever grateful stay. But should the angels call for him, Much sooner than we planned, Well brave the bitter grief that comes, And try to understand" Edgar A. Guest
