"Though I'm missing you
I'll find a way to get through
Living without you
'Cause you are  my son, my strength and my pride
Only god may know why,
Still I will get by
Who would've known, that you'd have to go so suddenly, so fast
How could it be, that our sweet memories would be all, all that we have left?
Now that you're gone, every day I go on
But life's just not the same .
I'm so empty inside,
And my tears I can't hide
But I'll try,
I'll try to face the pain
Oh there were so many things
That we could have shared, uh-huh
If time was on our side
Now that you're gone, I can still feel you near
So I'll smile with every tear I cry
How sweet were the closest of mother and friends?
But I'll wait for the day
When I'll see you again,
See you again, my love ,we miss you so much it hurts like crazy❤️❤️"

"In memory of my stepson Damion 'Freshie' on his 34th Birthday...

As I visit your final resting place, upon this special day
Once more I feel the sadness that will never go away
For ever since you're gone, life has never been the same
Yet it comforts me, that one day we will meet again
Until that day arrives Freshie, I will relive every memory
Of the happy times we shared...For I miss you very much
And words could not tell how much joy you brought into our lives

Dearly missed...Always loved...Never forgotten....

"In Memory of Damion "Freshie"

It still seems like yesterday, but it's 2 years now that you left us. I hope you knew how loved you were. You were such a good person Freshie.
Just like in life, in death you bring your family and friends together. That thread of people who loved you, will eternally keep us all together. As time goes by, we will always have your memories to share, some to make us cry and some to make us laugh, and that is the beauty of your  kind and gentle soul.

You will forever be my stepson and will be forever in my heart. I often talk about you with Andy and Chris, and we will always be grateful to you, and I'm glad I told you.

Rest in Peace Freshie..Always loved, Always missed..."

"Our thoughts are ever with you
Though you have passed away.
And those who loved you dearly
Are thinking of you today.
Every day in some small way
Memories of you come our way.
Though absent, you are always near
Still missed, loved and always dear.
Your presence we miss, Your memory we treasure,
Loving you always, Forgetting you never.
No farewell words were spoken, No time to say goodbye,
You were gone before we knew it, And only God can tell us why.
We can't have old days back  When we were all together.
But secret tears and loving thoughts Will be with us forever.
When a loved one becomes a memory That memory becomes a treasure.
You are not forgotten loved one . Nor will you ever be.
As long as life and memory last . We will remember thee.
We miss you now, our hearts are sore,
As time goes by we miss you more,
Your loving smile, your gentle face,
No one can fill your vacant place.
Thank you for loving and sharing,
For giving and for caring.
God bless you and keep you,
Until we meet again."

To lose someone so special is really hard to bear
It seems unbelievable that you are no longer there
You left us far too early, before your time it seems
And now you'll never have the chance to fulfill all those dreams

You always lived life to the full, but ours won't be the same
Until the day, we can see your smiling face again.

Today is the last day I spoke to you, I can't believe it's already been 2 years. You asked me when I was going to make the 'lasagna' for you again. You always loved my lasagna..I'm sorry I didn't get the chance to make it for you again.

If I listen really close
In the silence of the night
I hear your voice to comfort me
And say that you’re alright
But it’s often hard to understand
Why certain things must be
And the reasons why they happen
Are so often hard to see
But I find comfort in the knowledge
That God is always there
To keep the one I loved so much
Forever in his Care

"Coming up to 1 year Damion...R.I.P

If heaven had a window and God granted me a view,
of all the beauty it beholds, I'd only look for you.
I'd listen for your laughter that was always music to me,
your beautiful face and eyes is what I'd wish most to see.
If I could only view once more the smile that warmed my heart,
I'd treasure that moment as long as I live and then we had to part.
Here on earth I search for you and pray to God for signs,
and every day that passes you're still with me in my mind.
I know you're happy in heaven; you've earned your mansion indeed,
I imagine your kitchen table and you waiting there for me.
I love you and I miss you more than words can say,
and what I wouldn't give just to talk to you today.
I hope that you can hear me and listen to my thoughts,
and wherever this life takes me you know I've not forgot.
That once upon a time I was blessed and loved, it's true,
and if heaven had a window I'd only look for you.

Love your stepmom Iscia...Always Missed...Always Loved..

Someone I love, is gone away
And life is not the same
The greatest gift that you can give
Is just to speak his name

I need to hear the stories
And the tales of days gone past
I need for you to understand
That these memories must last

We cannot make more memories
Since they are no longer here
So when you speak of Freshie to me
It's music to my ears

I often sit and think about
The months that have passed by
And the happiness and joy
That was shared between you and I
I think of all the laughter,
The smiles and all the fun
And before I even know it
My tears have once begun
For although it brings me comfort
To walk down memory lane
It reminds me of how, without you Damion
Life has never been the same

R.I.P Damion "Freshie"

If I only had five minutes the day you passed away,
I would have had time to tell you all the things I needed to say.

The last time that I talked to you
I wish I would have known.
I would have said I love you,
and kept you on the phone.

If I only had five minutes,
the morning you passed away,
I'd give you one last hug so tight and see your great big smile.
I'd tell you that I don't think I could live without you,
not even for awhile.

Now God has called upon you,
It's time to get your wings.
To leave this life behind you,
And enjoy all of heavens beautiful things.

Forever Loved and Missed by your stepmom Iscia xxxxoooo"

They say I'm sorry for your loss
They say your heart will mend
They say he's in a better place,
and death is not the end.

They say you're reunited
with loved ones gone before.
They say that you'll be waiting
when I walk through heaven's door.

I feel their love in every word
of comfort they impart,
and know that each is spoken
from deep within the heart.

But all the words of comfort,
though kind, sincere, and true,
can't take away the emptiness
I'm feeling without you.

Love your step-mom , Iscia xxxooo"

"R.I.P. Damion 'Freshie'

Imagine if I was given one moment,
just a single slice of my past.
I could hold it close forever,
and that moment would always last.

I'd put the moment in a safe,
within my hearts abode.
I could open it when I wanted,
and only I would know the code.

I could choose a time of laughing,
a time of happiness and fun.
I could choose a time that tried me,
through everything I've done.

I sat and thought about what moment,
would always make me smile.
One that would always push me,
to walk that extra mile.

If I'm feeling sad and low,
if I'm struggling with what to do.
I can go and open my little safe,
and watch my moment through.

I've dug deep inside my heart,
found the safe and looked inside,
there was room for lots of moments,
in fact hundreds if I tried.

I'm building my own little library,
embedded in my heart,
for all the moments spent with you,
before you had to part.

I can open it up whenever I like,
pick a moment and watch it through,
My little library acts as a promise,
I'll never ever forget you


Always loved, Always missed, Always in my heart

"Looking Down

This year you’d have being turning 32, I know  God must have needed you, to take you from me, my precious son, I bet it is pretty cool up there in heaven getting to her the Angels sing. I can’t wait to join you in heaven so, what a that meeting will bring. Son I miss you so very much. I am looking up today and I trust
you are looking down Because today is your birthday and I am
insisting on smiles and not a single frown I know this is what you would ask for
because you always thought of other people So look at your smiley family laughing and
having a joke.
We always puzzled what to buy you when this
day came each year
You would always say “nothing - as long as you
visit I know you care”
So we would do the usual, buying you gifts that would be useful one day
and you would express your delight as you put them quietly away
I like to think you are looking down on us in your
caring way
Especially today which is very special because son today is your 32nd birthday
So son hope the angels are singing and you are
celebrating big style
But take a moment from your celestial celebrations to
spend with us looking down for awhile
Today I celebrate the life you lived and the blessing that you were to me
during your time on Earth. I remember you.
I feel you. I know you exist in my heart and elsewhere.
I sip your favorite drink and taste the food you loved,
the simple pleasures that are no longer yours, exchanged for the joy
of being Home, knowing Truth, seeing all.
I love you.
Today,
in your honor,
I celebrate Life.
I love you so much and miss you so much my darling son.mom"

A voice so loved is still
A place is vacant in the home

We have to mourn the loss of one

Just know now,
he is in a better place,
no more hurt or pain shall he face.

Wondering why you couldn't be a part of my future.
Uncontrollable tears stream down my face,
while my heart beat starts to race.
Trying my best not to question God why he took you from my life,
it was more painful than stabbing me in the heart with a knife.
I still needed you here
you were the one to make everything so clear.
you are a part of me and I am a part of you
when you died a part of me died too.
I never knew how hard it was to lose someone you love
until the day you went to heaven above.
Even though I can't see,
I know your up there watching over me.
I miss you more and more everyday
and all I can do is pray.
In my heart you shall forever remain.

"My eyes filled up with tears as I heard the the news, I was in denial as this could not be true.
It never occured to me, how much I could lose with the thought of your passing.
I find myself wishing that it wasn't real, my nephew how could this be.
Everytime i think about it pain is all I can feel, but your fond memories  Damion, will live with me forever.
I just wish I had the chance to express my feelings and how much you means to me.
I know you are in a safe place and the angels will take good care of you, I love and missed you dearly.

Love, Aunty Tonie and cuz"

"A day filled with terror heartbreak and pain
May 24 will never be the same
Two lives lost with no explanation
Just more question than there is answer
Both so young with so much hope for the future
All cut short within an instance

Now I am left with my memories
Of a nephew full of life and adulation
It filled my heart to see how loved you were
I am at peace to say job well done
It makes it non less painful but easier to bear
The loss of a love one so close and dear

Your burden on earth was too heavy
You needed an arm and the lord extend it
Take hold my child and snuggle well
You deserve the rest after the roller coaster end
Although selfish I hoped you had stayed
But I take comfort knowing there is no more pain

My heart is heavy but selfish I can’t be
I know you needed your dad and there you should be
I only hope you are finally free
Content and complete
Cause you took apart of me with you
On your journey in between

RIP my sweet sweet nephew....LOVE just does not begin to express what I feel for you...this day will forever be embedded in me...two days after my birthday this is hard to comprehend....rest on baby."

"I Love You Son
My dear son! I miss you so much
It keeps hurting, I can't stop crying
My eyes always search for you in the sky
Heart longs for finding you in the heaven

My dear son! I love you so much
I feel so empty without you
I am so scared of my future without you
Heart longs for being around you for my safety

My dear son! You are my angel
I still feel that you are caring me from above
I tell my broken heart that you are still watching me
Heart longs for your care even from heaven

My dear son! You are my protector
I remember you when I feel lonely
I talk to you when I break into pieces
Heart longs for your support even from heaven

My dear son! I was thinking I gave you life
The reality is that you had given me life
Without you and your presence, I can't exist
Heart longs for your company in my heart until I exist
Please be there in my heart

I Love You Son! May Your Soul RIP!"

"My dear loving, kind son . No words I write could ever say
How sad and empty I feel today
The Angels came for you
Much sooner than I planned
I'll brave the bitter grief that comes
And I'll try my best understand
Damion why did you have to go away
Why wasn't it right for you to stay
In my heart Damion will always be
I love him dearly and I know he'll watch over me
What I'm suffering seems so unfair
But one thing is for certain
My love for Damion will always be there
Damion my son you always will be
The most important part of my hearts memory
I'll cherish the moments I held you in my arms
And I'm sure that if you had of stayed longer
You would have graced me with your charms
A thousand words won't bring you back
I know because I've tried
Neither will a thousand tears
I know because I've cried
Now you're up in Heaven
With the Angels up above
They will take my place for now
And they'll give you all their love
So go and rest in peace now
My little boy so dear
For all my love and memories
I will hold forever near
Love You My Child….RIP"

"I'm Free

Don't grieve for me, for now I'm free,
I'm following the path God laid for me.
I took his hand when I heard his call,
I turned my back and left it all.

I could not stay another day,
To laugh, to love, to work, to play.
Tasks left undone must stay that way,
I've found that peace at the close of the day.

If my parting has left a void,
Then fill it with remembered joy.
A friendship shared, a laugh, a kiss,
Ah yes, these things I too will miss.

Be not burdened with times of sorrow,
I wish you the sunshine of tomorrow.
My Life's been full, I savoured much,
Good friends, good times, a loved one's touch,

Perhaps my time seemed all too brief,
Don't lengthen it now with undue grief.
Lift up your heart and share with me,
God wanted me now, He set me free"

"I've learnt this:

People will forget what you said
People will forget what you did
But people will never forget how you made them feel.

Damian, everyone will always remember how you made them feel. Everyone that loves you, has their own memory of their time with you.

Lovingly remembered everyday...Rest in peace Damian

Your loving step mom Iscia"

"When A Loved One is Gone

Those we loved remain with us, for love itself lives on
And cherished memories never fade because a loved one is gone
Those we love can never be more than a thought apart
For as long as there is memory, they will live on in our heart

Forever in our hearts...Iscia, Andy and Chris

More Love - Respect - All The Time"

"In memory of our dearest Damian - Freshie

Gone is the face we loved so dear
Silent is the face we loved to hear.
Too far away for sight or speech,
But not too far for thought to reach,
Sweet to remember him once here,
Who, though absent, is just as dear

Always thinking of you. You will never be forgotten
Love Always, your step-mom Iscia"

"R.I.P Damian 'Freshie'

God looked around His garden
And found an empty place
He then looked down upon this Earth
And saw your tired face.
He put his arms around you
And lifted you to rest
God’s garden must be beautiful
He always takes the best

Forever in my heart - Your stepmom Iscia xxxoooo"

Gently I gather and treasure the all
Unseen, unheard, you are always near

"We can't choose who we lose
But we can choose how we live after they are gone
A loss changes us forever.
The choice is this: Does it change you for the better or worse?
When you choose, take a moment and ask yourself
'What would Damian want me to do?"

That's the most important question and answer !!

Always thinking of you Damian "Freshie"....More Love"

"Damian (Freshie):

I know you sleep in heaven and up there think of me
Waiting there for those you love, until together we will be.
I know that you’re not lonely, in company of angels above
Watching over and protecting, those left behind that you love.

Today we said "Until we meet again........", because your family and friends could never say goodbye. Rest in peace Damian.

"In Loving Memory – RIP Beloved Damian "Freshie"

If tears could build a stairway and memories a lane
I’d walk right up to heaven and bring you home again
No farewell words were spoken, no time to say goodbye
You were gone before I knew it and only God knows why
My heart still aches with sadness and secret tears still flow
What it meant to say I love you Freshie, no one will ever know
But now I know you want me to mourn for you no more
To remember all the happy times, Life still has much in store
Since you’ll never be forgotten, I promise you today
An empty place within my heart, Is where you’ll always stay.

Your loving step-mom, Iscia McDonald and step-brothers Andy and Christopher.

Gone but never forgotten"

"....Until We Meet Again Damian

Those special memories of you
Will always bring a smile
If only I could have you back
For just a little while
Then we could sit and talk again
Just like we used to do
You always meant so very much
And always will do too
The fact that you are no longer here
Will always cause me pain
But you’re forever in my heart
Until we meet again

Blessed Love
Your stepmom forever - Iscia"

"1 Thessalonians 4:13–14

And now, dear brothers and sisters, we want you to know what will happen to the believers who have died so you will not grieve like people who have no hope. For since we believe that Jesus died and was raised to life again, we also believe that when Jesus returns, God will bring back with him the believers who have died."

"To My Beloved Stepson Damian

If I listen really close
In the silence of the night
I hear your voice to comfort me
And say that you’re alright
But it’s often hard to understand
Why certain things must be
And the reasons why they happen
Are so often hard to see
But I find comfort in the knowledge
That God is always there
To keep the one I loved so much
Forever in his Care

I will always love you and you will forever be in my heart!

Love Iscia, Andy and Chris"
