My daughter Whitney Blair was my best friend, my joy, my pride. Just as everyone else here writes, I miss her more than words can ever say. And, even though it's been over 2 years that she left this earth, I too still cry at the oddest times. Like others, tears just overcome me at the slightest memory.
But I have learned to turn those tears into joy. I refuse to cry for myself, for my loss, for what I feel or have lost. Instead, each time those tears start, I choose to think of them as tears of joy for her and her memory. Tears that are shed remembering what a remarkable young lady she had become here on earth and tears imagining just how much more she must have grown in Heaven. Tears of knowing that if she could not be here with me that she is in Heaven with our Father, that she is truly in a better place out of all of the fears and pain on this earth. And, tears of happiness that I was allowed to share in her almost 18 years here on this earth. And, today as my 3rd Mother's Day approaches without her, tears of joy that I was her mother and she my daughter.
Whitney, I will always love you and miss you today and always. You were my baby, my joy, my life. Missing you today more than ever,
Always in Memory / Mother Shanda Smith
Rodney and Volante since that cold night December 17, 1993 when you were mistakenly murdered together... I knew the Good Lord had wanted me to make a sacrifice, I instantly forgave the person that murdered you both. I cried for two whole years, I couldn't stop the overflow of tears that automactically wouldn't stop, for you will always be in my heart. Today 14 1/2 yrs later I still remember your simles and laughter and have turned that endured pain into comforting another Mother or Family that might encounter the same fate. It hasn't been easy, but my faith and love of GOD and believing that JESUS died for all of our sins has kept me and I know it is his Will and my Testimony that will bring us together again. Rest in Peace and continue to shine on us All. Close

**A butterfly lights beside us like a sunbeam, and for a brief moment its glory and beauty belong to our world. But then it flies on again, and though we wish it could have stayed, we feel lucky to have seen it at all.**
Kaycee Elizabeth Williams~ What a beautiful difference you have made. Your short time here with us was truly a blessing and I am grateful for the moments I was able to spend with you. I love you and I miss you!

Mommy loves you, Boobers! / Michelle James (Mommy of Gabriel James Burbank )
Its been 6 years now, but it still seems like yesterday....The last time I stroked your face and hair... the last time I hugged you. You left us so suddenly and without warning. I love you, my son, and thought I could never go on without you. And then, last week, after having a very rough time this year with the anniversary of your death, I found out that I am pregnant.(!).. but you already know that, dont you? And they told me I couldnt get pregnant again....What do they know?? Now, I know that God has not forgotten me... and I know you are right there on his lap reminding him that I needed to know that life goes on and that you are with me every day of my life. I hear you, Bubby, and I love you, my son, with all my heart. Thank you, Boobers!
~~To my son, Gabriel James Burbank, who became an angel at the age of 3 1/2 years old. He passed away from a drowning accident in the backyard pool of his uncle's house. ~~

To My Sweet Beautiful Angels.. / Theresa Braley (Mommy)
Joanna & Ethan,
Mommy misses you both so very much, I want you to know that I will always love you and you will always be a part of our family. Your siblings that you never got the chance to meet know you and love you as much as me, and Trevor still has a hard time with you being gone, every holiday and birthday we celebrate with you both at your resting place, I am sure you know because we feel you there. You will live in our hearts forever & always. But until we meet again I will carry you both in my heart.
I love you always,
Here is a poem that is on Joanna & Ethan's stone, it brings me peace..

RYAN W. TRUMAN
They say time heals all wounds, but I can honestly say that isn't true. NO amount of time could pass that would take away the pain I have in my heart from losing you Ryan.
On May 8th, 2004 my world shattered and it will never be the same again. I can't go back - I wasn't given a choice - I never thought I would live a day of my life without you in it, but now I do on a daily basis and again, I wasn't given a choice.
I can't even put into words how much you are missed, wanted, needed and loved.
I love you Ryan... more then mere words could ever express.
For my two angel babies, I will always love you. Artemis Star Miller born at 7 weeks gestation October 2, 2005. Apollo Brian Miller, born much too early Jan 21, 2007. Though I never got to hold you, each and every day I hold you in my heart. Though I may not have you hear to say happy mothers day, will never recieve a hand made card with glitter and macaroni, I know you are saying it from summerland with the rest of the angel babies and saving that special card for when we meet agin. Love always, Mommy,
In rememberance of YOU on this mother's day. I love you and miss you for all eternity, until we are united again in God's glorius heaven! I love you so much Matt. Save me a seat beside you with Jesus. Forever in my heart....Love MOM

For My Princess Anjelique / Elizabeth Augustin
Tomorrow marks 2 yrs 1 mths since our princess returned to our Lord. She was only 2 1/2 mths old. She passed to SIDS. The time we had with her was the most precious and blessed gift. Everyday I am blessed to see her smile in her siblings and can close my eyes and see it. It will forever hold me and give me that extra strength when I feel down. I know she is watching from up above and giggles when her siblings do and one day I pray I will be honored and blessed of holding and hugging her again till then I will make sure everyone knows about "Princess Anjelique"
As I will always always have these words for her.....

We miss you Bobby more and more each day. There is not a day that goes by that we do not think of you and wish you were here. You were taken from on on Thanksgiving 2007 and we still do not understand why. They said it was S.I.D.S. but you were a healthy, loving baby boy. We celebrated your 1st Birthday on 4/14/08 but it was not the same without you. Did you receive our balloons? We hope so.

This is what she worked for all her life / Hattie Ragan (Daughter)
For my beautiful Mother who dedicated her entire life to serving God and caring for her family with total unselfishness. She was taken from us so unexpectedly on April 15, 2007. In a matter of minutes she was gone with no warning. Our lives have not been the same since.
It is so hard not to buy her a Mother's Day card, or buy her a corsage for Church, and to plan a special time for her.
I know she is resting now after 94 years of never doing things for herself.
