|When I get where I'm going there'll be only happy tears. I will shed the sins and struggles, I have carried all these years. And I'll leave my heart wide open, I will love and have no fear. When I get where I'm going, don't cry for me down here.|
This memorial website was created in the memory of our loved one, John Stuart Hooper, Jr. who was born on May 21, 1989 and passed away on July 4, 2010. We will remember him forever.
You can shed tears that he is gone, or you can smile because he has lived.
You can close your eyes and pray that he'll come back,or you can open your eyes and see all he's left.
Your heart can be empty because you can't see him,or you can be full of the love you shared.
You can turn your back on tomorrow and live yesterday, or you can be happy for tomorrow because of yesterday.
You can remember him only that he is gone,or you can cherish his memory and let it live on.
You can cry and close your mind, be empty and turn your back.
Or you can do what he'd want:-smile, open your eyes, love and go on.
