|Let the memory of Gregory Jr. be with us forever|
This memorial website was created in the memory of our loved one, Gregory Maryland Jr., 19, born on July 4, 1985 and passed away on November 20, 2004. We will remember him forever.
"Where do I even begin? It's been a little over 11 years since you were taken away and not a year has gone by that I haven't cried for you. These last few weeks you've been heavy on my mind and heart. I just wish you'd still be here so I can stare into you're beautiful eyes once more, while you grin from ear to ear like you used to. I miss your hugs, the way you held my hand, I miss just hearing your voice. I often wonder how different life would've been had you not left so soon. How beautiful your children would be, I just knew some day you would've made a wonderful dad because of how gentle and sweet you were with India. I brag to my daughter very often about the sweetheart you were. I wish that sometimes I could wake up and you'd still be here alive and well, living life normally. Nothing in this world prepared me for the news I received that day about your passing. I felt so empty, I couldn't eat, I couldn't sleep, my mom held me crying for so many nights. You took a big chunk of my heart with you when you left and I prayed so much that it was a mistake and that it wasn't true. Oh how I wish things/life would have gone differently. I'll patiently wait for the day to see you once more so I can finally see that gorgeously contagious smile that you had, and hold you ever so closely. I miss you and love you so much Gregory Maryland Jr!"
"Hello Again....I tried to write to you yesterday but it was very difficult for me. I feel so ill inside...tears flow like a river because my heart is broken. I miss you and I am looking forward to seeing you again! I have been looking at your graduation ceremony CD and I rewind just to see that smile with your arms spread wide as if you were saying, "Lord, here I am! I surrender!""
"Hey Lil Gregory!! I just wanted to let you know that I've been thinking about you. I love and miss you."
"Hello Babe Boy:
Today was very tough day for me. My mind stayed on you trying to envision what you would look like or what you would be doing and wondering of how many wonderful grand children you would have blessed us with. It seems as if everyone has forgotten about you and your soft embrace. But as usual, your mom have been and will always be in your corner. You know I often hear so many songs on the radio and I think to myself...Hmmm Greg Jr. would like that or shopping looking at the new styles and thinking of you. I love and miss you my baby boy. We will meet again and we will have a joyous time."
"Hi Babe Boy:
Happy Birthday. We released 30 sky lanterns to commemorate your birthday. You are truly missed and forever loved. I am still looking for you at every gathering; when I pass by your room or if I meet a stranger with your stature. I miss your warm hug and your beautiful smile. You will always be with us forever. Sleep on my child. We will see rach other again. Love your mom!"
"Oh how time flies; you are truly missed. Yet you are forever remembered. Often your name is brought up and me & Kirby always talk about how spoiled you were and how you had every Jordan shoe thanks to Auntie Pam. I often wonder how life would be if you were here, God called you home and I know you are looking down upon us smiling. I have a baby boy now; he's 1 year old. I truly wish you could be here but you are better off. Watch down on us my guardian angel! Me & Armani love you always and forever :)"
"This was one of the most saddest days of our life. That day you left us. God obviously had a bigger plan for you in his Kingdom. I know that you are in Jesus' arms. Yet we will always Love You and remember the Good times. We miss you very much. If our Love could have kept you here then most assuredly you would still be here with us.
Love You Nephew
Tee Black Gal & family"
"If the love we have for you could bring you back, you would be in our arms today. I pray everyday for you. I know God wanted you more because He is in charge. You will always be missed and remembered!"
"Hi Baby Boy:
It has been 10 LONG years. You are thought of EVERYDAY. I yearn to hear your voice, your smile, and your conversation. I am still looking for you in everyone I encounter. Your presence is missing when all of your cousins gather at MAMA's house. I observe them laughing and clowning and just enjoying each other....then I realize once AGAIN you are not there in body but in spirit. I am looking forward to seeing YOU again so we can catch up. I often dream of YOU and PAPA--- you guys are walking on the back levy gazing towards the back with you walking in his footsteps swinging a twig back and forth. WE LOVE YOU and MISS YOU."
"I LOVE YOU"
"I can't believe its been 9 years. I remember it like it was yesterday and still cry when I think about you. But then I smile because I think of all the good times we had. I remember staying in our pool until we turned into little prunes, when you were a lifeguarg at the pool and I showed you how to backstroke, when you made that slide and slide outside of Auntie Josephine's house, how we used to climb on the roof but most importantly, I remember your smile. There isn't a day that passes that I don't think about you or miss you EVERYDAY and EVERY time I go down the bayou. I always wonder what you would be doing now? I miss your hugs, your voice and you. I love you very, very much."
"I miss you much...."
"Although our hearts hurt and mourn in humanly pain, the fact still remain the same that heaven has gained more love to sprinkle down from above. You are truly forever missed."
"Gone Too Soon.....It is very difficult for me the past few weeks. My body, heart and soul is yearning to hear your voice, to feel your touch, to see your smile. I know that you are present through our memories of you! But the flesh is weak and I miss you! I always love you and will see you again!"
"It has been eight long years since your departure. Your birthday is right around the corner - July 4th. You would have been 28 years of age. Wow! By now I would have had beautiful grandchildren - just like YOU! Your sister talks about you all of the time and how she wishes you were here to share her life. Happy Birthday Baby Boy! We love you FOREVER AND ALWAYS!"
"It was really hard for me, when you passed. You were not only my cousin, but my friend and brother. You were the first person that passed and it hit home for me. It was like a void you can't get rid of. But now, so many years have passed and tears have been cried. We (the cousins) talk about you as if you're down the street. We'd say "lil Gregory used to do that." You're forever missed."
"sup my dawg, its been a minute since I talked to you, I miss them days in middle & high school when we were chilling trying to holla @ da all da pretty ladies, u know-I would give anything to go back, even me & God talk every night-I ask him to tell all my friends & family that passed I love them, I love you homie..."
"Man it's been a while but still can't believe it ! You were definently a fun and handsome guy . Greg you are truly missed! Until we meet again ... RIP"
"One of my closest friends in high school...I ride with a red rag in my car for u! My son middle name is in memory of u... I know u watch over me & I feel your present at times! U will be forever loved & never forgotten<3 rip my brother!!!"
"Where do I start! We have so many great memories. You were so smart,handsome,sweet, and I can't forget a straight clown!i remember you grew out your Afro which was very neat☺ I look at our homecoming pics all the time and still can't believe you aren't here! You are truly missed always. Until we meet again, rip"
"It's been a long time lil brother there ain't a time go by when u dnt cross my mind an I wonder how much different things would be if u were still here. I know u are in heaven keeping a smile on everyone's face as u did dwn here . Words can't explain ... Love ya lil brother from my other mother save a spot for me up there Ill see u when I get there #Big brother Nunnie"
"I will always miss your smile and bright shining eyes. You are saddenly and deeply missed but never forgotten."
"It was great seeing you every summer that I could, but when you passed away it really hurt my soul because you were one of my favorite cousins. So everytime I go to Louisiana I make it a point to go visit your grave and my grandparents grave at the same time. You were a nice and talented young man. Furthermore, you will always be missed and like your motto says, "Gone but not forgotten.""
"I can reminise on the time when we were little and we use to run outside to play down the bayou with the alligators. We use to have so much fun riding with your mom to each family members house after leaving your grandparents house to go eat. I also remember when we use to ride the go-carts and 4-wheelers down to the pit in your grandparents backyard with all our cousins. Much Love....."
"It's sad to say goodbye to the one you love truly.I love you brothee."
"It is amazing how my HEART starts to ache every birthday, every holiday, and every death anniversary without warning. You are missed every moment of my life. I think of the times we shared by sitting quietly to hear your voice speak to me softly and I smile, laugh and sometimes cry. I grapple with photographs to capture those moments we shared which will last my lifetime! LOVE - MOM"
"If I should leave this world without a warning, and not even whisper a fond farewell, greave not for one more message from the lips that God has stilled. It may be lonely, and I hope you miss me just a little, because I have loved so deeply. Forgive me if I have ever hurt you and remember me for what I longed to be. Have faith that I am nearer than your dreams and fondest longings."
Have a suggestion for us?
