I can't believe it's been 10 years since you left. I'm so glad that Loren has your sense of humor and silliness. I miss you being here for Loren.

It has been nine years since Kevin's death. It is hard to believe. I am so glad we have his son Loren to love. I miss him sooooo! He could be such a goof ball! Love you Kevin!

I miss your silliness with Loren! Believe me, he has a lot of it. Loren brings joy to those around him and I love the way he is very social! I know you are watching over him and I feel your presence when God knows I need it, but we miss you. Time has gone by so fast!

Tomorrow will be another year since you have left your earthly walk and it is now eight years since you received your angel wings. Oh how I miss you! and oh how I remember that day.Some days It seems like yesterday and then there are those days that it seems like forever. That morning your brother Larry and I sat by your bed and read from the Bible starting at Psalms 23. You fought a good fight, but God needed you to be in His garden. You are missed. I miss seeing your face when you are with your son Loren. We enjoy Loren so much. Kendra has done a good job as his mother. I admire her for her dedication and perserverance with Loren.
Until we meet again! Mom loves you!

It is your birthday again! Your 7th in heaven! Oh how you are missed. I miss seeing your face as you watch Loren. We send you birthday balloons from the graveside.It was cold wind for this time of year, so we did not stay to long. I know you are not there. It seems like a perfect place to wish you Happy Birthday! You are always in my heart!

Loren is 10 now! He is getting big. He definitely has your sense of humor! He is a very social and happy boy. I know you are smiling down on him from the heavens above. He loves his bowling! He can bowl at the bowling alley, on the wii, or with the plastic pins we have at home. Thank you for helping me to create such a wonderful boy but I really wish you were here to share him in life.

I got to share a story with Loren today about you while we were working on a science project. It involved using some of the sand we got from the ocean while in North Carolina! Loren was having such a good time and it was a perfect time to share the story.....only happy thoughts were allowed in the conversation....it took me back and I was so glad I could share it with our son. We all miss you!

I never got the chance to meet Kevin but through knowing Marty and Jerry I've come to know what a great, generous, fun loving guy Kevin is. I know first hand ( unfortunately ) that the anniversary dates of our kids that have passed before us , are hard but this great tribute to Kevin is a wonderful way keep his memory alive. Thank you Marty for sharing Kevin with us.

I can't believe its been five years since the good Lord called you home. Not a day goes by that I don't think of you. You are missed and loved by many people.

To Mom From Your Son In Heaven
Submitted by flgibso | August 5, 2015 - 1:19pm

Mom Even though I am in Heaven

My new chapter in life has begun

And nothing could ever come between

The love of a Mother and Son

You carried me as a baby

The bond we have will never bend

You will always be my sweet Mother

You are my Guiding Light, My Best Friend

We created sweet memories in life

The love that you gave saw me through

And now I will love you from Heaven

It is my turn to watch over you

So don’t think that you’re living without me

For my Spirit is just at your side

I see that you cry tears in your sleep

Your sadness for me you can’t hide

Perhaps I’ll send frogs when you miss me

To remind you of your silly boy

Or maybe just one little critter

So I can see those tears turned into Joy

Oh, Please Mom know that I am right here

I am perfect in Heaven’s sweet light

And some day when you come to Heaven

I will hug you with all of my Might

Shared by Marty VanDenBerg on October 23, 2011

I will lend you, for a little time,
A child of mine, He said.
For you to love the while he lives,
And mourn for when he's dead.

It may be six or seven years,
Or twenty-two or three.
But will you, till I call him back,
Take care of him for Me?

He'll bring his charms to gladden you,
And should his stay be brief.
You'll have his lovely memories,
As solace for your grief.

I cannot promise he will stay,
Since all from earth return.
But there are lessons taught down there,
I want this child to learn.

I've looked the wide world over,
In search for teachers true.
And from the throngs that crowd life's lanes,
I have selected you.

Now will you give him all your love,
Nor think the labour vain.
Nor hate me when I come
To take him home again?

I fancied that I heard them say,
'Dear Lord, Thy will be done!'
For all the joys Thy child shall bring,
The risk of grief we'll run.

We'll shelter him with tenderness,
We'll love him while we may,
And for the happiness we've known,
Forever grateful stay.

But should the angels call for him,
Much sooner than we've planned.
We'll brave the bitter grief that comes,
And try to understand.
