Family Epitaph

Hi Son
No matter how I spend my days
No matter what I do
No mornings dawn, no nights return
Without a thought of you
Many a lonely heartache
Quite often a silent tear
But always a beautiful memory
Of the one we loved so dear.
Love Dad

God broke our hearts to prove to us He only takes the best.
There is a special bond between a mother and her child.
You are missed so much Randy but never ever forgotten.
Rest in peace my son.
You are always with me Randy.

Love always and forever,

No Longer There

The moment that you were killed,
My heart, it split in two.
The one side filled with memories,
The other died with you,
I often lay awake at night,
And take a walk down memory lane,
With tears upon my cheeks, that never go away

I hold you tightly in my heart,
And there you will remain,
Life has gone on without you,
But it will never be the same.
For those who still have their sons,Treat them with care.
For you will never know the emptiness
Until they are no longer there.
