"Missing you and wishing you were here!! Love you brother"

This tribute was added by Judy Satterwhite on 8th July 2016

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

"My precious Kenny.  Every year on this day, my heart is so heavy.  I miss you so much every day, but on this day, it breaks a little more.  I love you my sweet son, and there is not a day that goes by that you are not in my thoughts.  For some reason, God needed you more than I did, but I won't ever understand why.  You left way too soon.  But I do try to understand why you left the ones who loved you so much.  You had a broken heart that you could not heal and I believe that is why you decided to walk that beautiful stairway to Heaven.  I do understand that, where so many others do not.  I love you my son, and there will never be a day until we meet again that you will not be in my thoughts and in my heart.  Nothing will ever fill that empty space, ever."

"Kenny is greatly missed every day, but his birthday comes every year bringing another day to miss him even more.  Kenny -- son, brother, nephew, uncle, cousin, grandson, and friend -- a caring, tenderhearted young man who left this world much too soon.

We thought of you with love today,
But that is nothing new.
We thought about you yesterday,
And days before that too.

We think of you in silence,
We often speak your name;
All we have now are memories,
And your picture in a frame.

Your memory is our keepsake,
With which we will never part;
God has you in His keeping,
We have you in our heart.

It broke our heart to lose you,
But you didn't go alone,
For a part of us went with you
The day God took you home.

I believe if Kenny could say one thing to us now, it would be this:  "Appreciate LIFE because it is a gift.  Never allow anything to cause you to give up.  Fight the good fight of faith and trust the LORD to see you though every storm.  Never give up.""

"Happy Birthday my sweet son.  I love you and miss you so very much.  There is not a day that goes by that I do not think of you.  There is an empty space in my heart that can never be filled until I see you again.  You were such a loving, giving and caring person.  I miss your sweet smile and your beautiful blue eyes, and especially your hugs.  But your lovely daughter looks just like you and has eyes just like you.  You left us such a precious gift in her. I know that you are in Heaven where there is no more pain and one day I will meet you there and I will give you the biggest hug you have ever had.  Love you my son."

"Thank you so much to the ones who took time to write words of love for my precious Kenny.  He was so special and loving to everyone who knew him.  I went to the cemetery today and put beautiful flowers on your and Tonya's headstones.  You and she rest side by side but I know that you are looking out for her in Heaven.  The tiny one and her big brother, together forever.  I love you so much"

"We all should know there is a heaven we go to when we leave this world.  I didn't know Kenny and really don't know his family but what I do know is how they miss you every second of the day and night. One day there will be a glad reunion day with all the many loved ones we have known here below. What a glorious day that will be.  This is a sad day but we have the hope you are in heaven."

"Today 14 yrs. ago, my precious sweet son went to Heaven all of a sudden leaving the ones who loved him so much.  This will be a difficult day for me, but I will make it through.  I am going to the cemetery to visit his resting place, but I know that he is not really there.  He is with God in Heaven and is one of the most wonderful Angels with gold wings.  I love you and miss you, Mama."

"On the 8th of this month, my precious son Kenny will have been gone from this earth 14 years.  In some ways, it seems like forever, and in others, it seems just like yesterday.  I can still see his face and his bright blue eyes as if he were standing right in front of me.  I love you my son, and will miss you until we meet in Heaven.  You live in my heart every day and in my memories. Mama"

"Kenny was my sweet precious son who had to leave to be with God in Heaven. Everyone who ever met him, loved him. He was such a special person. Giving and caring, and a heart that would give everything. I miss him so very much and my love for him will always be in my heart until we meet again. I have an empty space in my life since he has been gone, but I know that he is still here with me."
