"A year ago, sitting on my own in a hotel room, I got the devastating news that you'd lost the fight with cancer. My heart broke, I cried a river of tears.
I know you are at peace now, pain& disease free. But the heartache never leaves.
Shine down on us all, put your arms around your mom & dad and let them know you're there, to ease the unbearable pain.
You were loved by many, now & always"

"I'll lend you for a while a child of mine, He said, for you to love while he lives and mourn for when he's dead.  It may be six or seven years, or thirty six or seven, but will you, until I call him back, take care of him for Me?  He'll bring his charm 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 must return, but there are lessons to be taught down there, I want this child to learn.  I've looked the whole world over in search for teacher's 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 him back again? He heard me say, "Dear Lord, Thy will be done!  For all the joy Thy child shall bring, the risk of grief we'll run.  We'll shelter him with tenderness, we'll love him while we may.  And for all the happiness we've known, forever grateful stay.  But should the Angels call for him much sooner than we've planned, we'll brave the bitter grief that comes, and try to understand. <3"

"Anthony, you were everything good and perfect in my life. Nothing about you and what you went through had to be perfect, you remained perfect in every way...
You have been my every joy and triumph. You are everything I have ever done right in my life and every thing that is right with the world.
In a way, you finally showed me salvation in my life, because I never ever even could come close to understanding how much God loved me, till I felt the love I have for you.  I have seen a glimpse of Heaven and the Father's Love through your perfect smile and beautiful soul.
I will love you with the last breath that I breathe on this Earth and forever beyond that. I will always be humbled that God chose me to be your Mom and I will never, ever take what a kind, beautiful, smart and loving Son you were for granted.
I will Always love you."

"Going into 2014 (or any year for that matter) is very difficult for me.  Miss the phone call wishing me "Happy New Year Mumsy" more than I've missed anything before.  Hope you saw the sky lanterns we sent you at midnight last night.  Both of them made straight for a star which was blue (your favorite color) which was very symbolic to both of us. Pops and I love and miss you so much.  Stay safe in the arms of Jesus, Precious Angel, until we meet again.  Love you gazillions, as always xxxxxx"

""When someone you love dies, and you're not expecting it, you don't lose them all at once; you lose them in pieces over a long time—the way the mail stops coming, and their scent fades from the pillows and even from the clothes in their closet and drawers. Gradually, you accumulate the parts of them that are gone. Just when the day comes—when there's a particular missing part that overwhelms you with the feeling that they've gone, forever—there comes another day, and another specifically missing part.”"

"Hey Ant. I can't believe how long you have been gone already , I still expect you to walk through my door sometimes  , ,but I know you watch over us every day . You must have had a good laugh at the Movember effort by the guys at CHC which we did in your honor. I bet you are having even a bigger laugh that we are still struggling with our IT system without your magic fingers at the helm.
As we go into Christmas, I know you will be watching over your family with special care . I'm sure things have been difficult for them  over the last 10 months but they know you have no pain and are sitting carefree in that must comfort them I'm sure.
Your friends at CHC will raise a glass to celebrate your celestial  38th birthday my boy.

Each night I miss you more.
I blow you kisses to heaven,
Catch them, as they float in Heaven's door.
Always remember how very much I love you.
Maybe you will visit me in a dream tonight,
Giving me hope to cling to,
Knowing that you are with me
Until the dawn's new light.
I shall keep each memory in my mind
Until I fall asleep,
The treasures that you gave to me
That are mine to keep.
Each step brings me one step closer to you,
My Son, whom I adore.
Only time will bring us together,
Just as we were before.
So, as I lay my head upon my pillow,
I shall remember your face.
One day we shall walk together
And be able to embrace.
We shall once again walk hand in hand
Just like it used to be,
Spending our time together again
For all eternity."

"10 Months Today
You never said "I'm leaving"'
You never said "Good-bye".
You were gone before we knew it,
And only God knows why.
A zillion times I've needed you,
A zillion times I've cried.
If love alone could have saved you,
You never would have died.
In life I loved you dearly
In death I love you still.
In my heart I hold a place,
That only you can fill."

"Mommy, what does eternity mean?
What can I do or say;
How to explain to a finite mind
The length of endless day.
Picture, Anthony, a mound of sand
A kilometer long, high and wide;
Each year a bird takes a grain of dust
From out of a mountain's side.
Millions of years will pass away,
The bird's work is all done;
Even with all these millions of years
Eternity has just begun.
Eternity has no hours - no days;
Time, then, will cease to be;
We'll be at home in our Father's House  -
Loved, everlastingly.
RIP  my darling Son"

"Motherhood isn't a test, but a religion:-  a covenant entered into, a promise to be kept.  It comes one-size fits all, and it camouflages flaws like nothing else.  How could it have taken Anthony's illness, and subsequent death, to make me see that he was the one thing in my life that I got right on the very first try?"

This tribute was added by Linda Parker on 18th November 2013

"Anthony, I will love you for the rest of my days - in fact, beyond the world as we know it.  Beyond forever, beyond always.  Loving you is what I was put here to do."

This tribute was added by Linda Parker on 18th November 2013

"Father, You know the plans You have for Anthony.  We trust You to carry them out. We prayed for Your healing as we love this son of ours, but we know that You love him even more than we do (don't know how that is possible).  We trust that as we place him in Your hands, You will work all things together for good, as You always do for those that love You."

This tribute was added by Linda Parker on 13th November 2013

"What moves through us is a silence, a quiet sadness, a longing for one more day.We may not understand why you left this earth so soon, or why you left before we were ready to say good-bye. But, little by little we remember not just that you died, but that you lived, and gave us memories too beautiful to ever forget."
