Bio Photo If Heaven Wasn't So Far Away by Justin Moore
My profile picture is a picture of a picture that hangs in my living room. All I have left of my son are pictures.
Many thanks to Gen Gal for placing it on my page. She also added the link to the Justin Moore song, as well as photos I took at Rosehill, which I appreciate.

Many thanks to Brenda, Wendy's mom, for adding this memorial for Gerrick. Had she not, he wouldn't have one. Many thanks to Cindy, Brandon and Shannon's mom, for sponsoring it. Thanks to all of my Find A Grave friends for remembering Gerrick. There are too many to mention, but, I appreciate every one of you. I appreciate everyone, online, as well as offline, who think about Gerrick and remember him, who add him to an online memorial, who call, or just someone who writes, "RIP." It does not go unnoticed, and is very much appreciated. Thank you!

"There's no tragedy in life like the death of a child. Things never get back to the way they were." President Dwight D. Eisenhower

RE: Thank you
It was my privilege to visit your beloved son Gerrick. I read his biography and saw the beautiful young man that he was. I know that you are so proud to be the mother of such a fine son, but I also know personally the heartache that you face each and every day as I do after losing my sons.

I paged through his memorial flowers but had to stop after I passed one thousand. What wonderful tributes have been placed in his memory. It is such a blessing to know that so many others care and share your pain. He has been added to my Special Ones Remembered.

May God be with you.

Hello,

I wanted to thank you for your visit to my mother's memorial. I also wanted to convey my deepest sympathy to you for the loss of your precious son. He looked like such a kind person.

Sincerely,

Diane,

I hope you don't mind me sharing this poem with you. Thought of you

A Few After.....

A few minutes after his birth.....
I could hear his announcing scream.
I couldn't believe he was finally here,
The realization of my dream.

A few hours after his birth.....
I held him so close to my chest.
Somehow that little boy let me see,
A special love that never left.

A few days after his birth.....
I held his tiny little hand.
I told him there would be lots of things
That I would help him to understand.

A few weeks after his birth.....
He had that sparkle in his eyes,
And when he showed me that little smile,
I thought that I would surely die.

A few months after his birth.....
He was just beginning to learn.
He didn't like me to go away,
And he cried until I returned.

A few years after his birth......
I still couldn't believe he was mine.
We talked and laughed and went for walks.
We had so many special times..

A few after.....

A few minutes after his death.....
I didn't know I needed to scream.
I thought that he was still safe and here...
I didn't know the truth of my dream.

A few hours after his death.....
I felt a strangeness within my chest.
Something was wrong that I couldn't see.
God! I didn't know that he had left.

A few days after his death.....
I held his cold and lifeless hand.
There were just so very many things
That I could not fully understand.

A few weeks after his death.....
That sparkle stolen from my eyes,
No longer to see his beautiful smile.
I never, ever thought that he would die.

A few months after his death.....
There was so much I needed to learn.
I was confused when he went away,
And I still waited for his return.

A few years after his death.....
I still wish that he could be mine,
To talk and laugh and go for walks.
I miss those special moments in time.

A few after.....

A few minutes after MY death......
Once again I will hear him scream,
"Hey Mom, it's me, I'm over here,
And Mom, this time it's not a dream."

A few hours after MY death.......
I'll hold him close again to my chest.
He'll look at me and say... "Now see?",
It doesn't seem so long since I left."

A few days after MY death.....
He will gently take me by the hand,
And show me all the glorious things,
And help me to understand.

A few weeks after MY death.....
I'll see that sparkle in his eyes.
Once again he'll warm me with his smile,
And say... "You see, Mom, I didn't die".

A few months after MY death.......
Together we'll have so much to learn.
We'll never have to go away,
Or long for each other's return.

A few years after MY death.....
Forever he will always be mine.
We'll talk and laugh and go for long walks,
Because we'll have nothing...... but time.

RE: Thank you
It was my pleasure to visit your precious son. He was one of the 1st memorials that I flowered when I started Christmas 2010. We both lost our precious sons. I hope they found each other in Heaven.

Have a great night (or morning)

(((hugs)))

Dearest Diane,



Someone's watching over you
with the Greatest Love.
Someone wants you to be
happy, safe, and secure.
Someone considers you
A wonderful individual
and cares about you.
Someone's making Blessings
for you right now ~
Like sunshine for those rainy days
and Rainbows to remind you
of the Promise up ahead.

Someone's watching over you
Especially at Christmas.
I know.........
Because I've asked the Lord
to take good care of you.

~Barbara J. Hall
