"Some days I sit here and I think back to a place that time was suppose to heal.I still cry,like it was yesterday.I scream in my head!No, hes not dead,he lays on lawn on top of the rifle.I found him there.I wont never forget it.They rushed him away on that spring day his 26th birthday was 1 week away.His words whisper in my ear how he would not be here.Just like his Dad here today gone tomorrow, in my heart there is so much sorrow.My heart has so much missing.My 2 Bruces were taken from me...I just know I'll see them again one day.god promised me..........Happy Birthday and Valentines Day"

You chose to live with me and finish and graduate from high school. We had a wonderful school trip to England, France and Italy. You could have spent a week or more at the Louvre, but we only had a few hours. I showed you where I learned to swim in Dover, England. Then there was the Vatican and all the wonderful things to see in St. Peter's. I am so glad that you asked to be baptized and confirmed in the Catholic Church where we attended when you lived with me. Just before you were removed from life support at Parkland Memorial Hospital you received Anointing and Absolution by Fr. Don Zeller. You live on not only in our hearts but in several living persons who received life giving donations from your own body. Love you, my only son, Mom

I remember hanging out every weekend at subway just to be able to hang out with you. I remember are long talks & the fact you considered me an old soul like yourself. I miss you & will never forget you or your family. You will live forever by the eyes that saw you, the ears that heard you & the hearts that held you. Hope you're in heaven telling crazy stories about me to my husband. May you both RIP & be waiting for me when I pass on. PS I named my son Harrison Mathew after you, even tho at the time I didn't know you had passed on.

I cannot believe that you're gone. My heart aches just thinking about it & thinking about your family & how terrible it must be having to live on with out you. You were my best friend growing up & I hate that I had to move with my mom to North Carolina when I was 16 since she was transferred there. We lost touch & only saw each other once more when I had come back to visit. You promised me you'd write but life happened & that was the last time I saw you or spoke to you.
