I am so thankful for my son Dustin for 25 years on earth and forever in Heaven. He was special from the day he was born more like amazing. I am thankful that Tiffany had such a amazing brother and best friend that she dearly loves and misses so much. As he grew up more and more you could see how his heart just blossomed and the love he had for everyone was so special. As he got older he taught me more than I think I taught him. He was a very logical thinker and shared his knowledge and his heart with so many. He use to call me and sing these goofy songs the words he would make up as he went so funny and so meaningful to me. and I miss them a lot on the holidays. He was just so amazing hard to even begin to put into words. He loved life and lived everyday to the fullest. I know God has one special angel and I know he is still sharing his love of life and his big heart with all of us here on earth.. I miss you Dustin and love you more each and every day and so very proud of you and that you are my son. Love, Mother (Patti Rawls

Giving Thanks for Our Angels at Thanksgiving
 
We thank you, Lord, for sending us
Our precious girls and boys.
And even though they left so soon,
They brought us so much joy.
 
We're thankful for the times we had,
The good days and the bad,
For now we all are missing them
And feeling down and sad.
 
We're thankful for our memories
Of joyful days of fun;
We lie in bed remembering
The good times, one by one.
 
We wish, of course, they could come back--
How joyful we would be!
We'd kiss their faces, hug them tight,
And love them tenderly.
 
We know they're in Your loving care;
We know they're happy, too;
But we will have to wait, dear Lord,
Till a summons comes from You.
 
Some day, O Lord, you'll come for us--
How happy we will be
To get to go to heaven
And our precious angels see!
 
Until that time, we'll try, dear Lord,
To please you every day,
To do the things you want us to,
While our angels are away.
 
We'll give support to other moms
And help them through their pain,
Knowing that someday we'll be
With our angels once again.
 
We may not be as joyful, Lord,
As once we used to be,
But we will still be thankful
For our kids eternally.

 I am thankful for Robbie's  smile and his kindness and his generosity--he would have given the shirt off his back to anyone who asked.
He was the most loving and accepting person I have ever known.
Loved and missed forever,

 I am Thankful for the wonderful years I got to spend with my son Shawn..He was a joy as a son and he was also my very best friend..We talked for hours each day and knew each others every thought..He could always make me laugh as no one else has ever done..He could tease me out of a bad mood and always made me feel special in every way..There was never a doubt that we had a special relationship that only a mother and son can share..Sometimes there would be a bit of jealousy from a girlfriend because he and I were so close..He would say, " Mom, I don't understand , Don't they know that a man that loves and respects his Mother so much , loves and respects all women ". I miss him with every beat of my heart..I buried him on the day after Thanksgiving...

We were Blessed to have had Lee in our lives for 25 short years. But more than Blessed, as over that time he showed us everything we never thought possible. He grew to be so caring, extremely funny, strong, and the talent for art/drawing and poetry, if he was still with us, he would be the best in the world. We have to believe that GOD needed incredible talent
and that was why he chose you. We can't wait to see what you have done to Heaven with your work.
See You Soon
We Miss and Love You

Heaven's Landscape
as painted by the Artist

With one single stroke; his paint brush in hand
He begins to tell this story of a magical land
As he captures the beauty of all it beholds
His wonderful story will start to unfold
 
You'll begin to see Angels flying in the distance afar
And just to the left; cherubs catching fireflies in a jar
They're running and laughing; having such a good time
While the artist strokes his brush to capture another divine
 
Lilies and cattails swaying from the soft gentle breeze
As an old man takes time to drop down to his knees
The wondrous vision that starts to appear
Is none other than God; who has brought them all there
 
With hands stretched outward and a smile on his face
You will now begin to see all the beauty of His grace
As the Angels circle round him, from far up above
The Artist paints the colors of His gracious love
 
With one last stroke of his paint brush in hand
He has captured the beauty of this far away land
He has told his story with his paint and his brush
Heaven's Landscape and God's Eternal Love

I am thankful for God allowing me to give birth to Hayes and having him with us for 16 - 1/2 years.  Hayes taught us so much in life, the true meaning of happiness, love, thankfulness, and kindness.  Life is not the same without you son, I know you're building a kingdom for us when it's time to reunite again.  Until that time, you are loved and missed so much.
Love,

shirleylauriethanks2008.jpg

I am thankful for Laurie's presence in my life for 16 years 34 days...No one in the world could have affected my life like she did, and no one will ever fill the void she left when she went to Heaven. L 

L = Love. She loved and was loved by everyone who knew her. She loved her pets and got upset everytime she saw a stray dog or cat. She would have brought them all home if she could.
A = Affection. She showed affection willingly, was never embarassed when I hugged her or held her hand walking in the mall, when I kissed her when she got out of the car to go to school. I had my arm around her in the airplane all the way to Boston and she wasn't embarassed.

U = Understanding. So many times her so called friends would talk about her behind her back and even tell her they didn't want to be friends any more, and one night she cried all night long, but afterwards she always acted like nothing ever happened between them.

R = Raving beauty. No matter what time of day or night, in my eyes and all who knew her she was always a raving beauty.

I = Inspiring. No matter how many times she had to go to the doctor, how many tests she had to have run, how many surgeries she needed, she always believed that God was in control of her life. She was an inspiration to me and her daddy.

E = Everlasting. Her love and her spirit are everlasting, always in my heart, my mind, my life, my soul, as well as others who knew and loved her. She did not die. She spread her wings and flew to Heaven.

Written by Shirley
In love and remembrance
For her daughter Laurie

I am thankful for Troy being the kind person he was. I'm thankful for all the smiles he brought to me and everyone around him. I'm thankful that he always treated everyone equal and looked for the good in people. I am thankful to God for the gift of Troy to me. Even though I wasn't ready to give him up, I enjoyed him being my son from day one and forever and ever.
 
T - True to his friends
R - Respectful of others
O - Ornery as could be with his practical jokes
Y - Youthful outlook on life...he always maintained that little boy eagerness to face each day of his life...seemingly without a worry in his heart.

DJ Angel Mom Of Shane Short
I am thankful for the 22 years that God gave me Shane. He was my firstborn son, my best friend, so much like me in so many ways, writer, poet, so wise beyond his 22 years. We could talk about anything and everything for hours,how I miss our talks. I would give anything for just 1 minute with him to hug and kiss him just once more. But I know I will see him one day in heaven where he is waiting for me.
