WHEN TOMORROW STARTS WITHOUT ME,
When tomorrow starts without me,
And I’m not there to see;
If the sun should rise and find your eyes
All filled with tears for me;
I wish so much you wouldn’t cry
The way you did today,
While thinking of the many things,
We didn’t get to say.
I know how much you love me,
As much as I love you,
And each time that you think of me,
I know you’ll miss me too;
But when tomorrow starts without me,
Please try to understand,
That an angel came and called my name,
And took me by the hand,
And said my place was ready,
In heaven far above,
And that I’d have to leave behind
All those I dearly love.
But as I turned to walk away,
A tear fell from my eye,
For all my life, I’d always thought,
I didn’t want to die.
I had so much to live for,
So much yet to do,
It seemed almost impossible,
That I was leaving you.
I thought of all the yesterdays,
The good ones and the bad,
I thought of all the love we shared,
And all the fun we had.
If I could relive yesterday,
Just even for awhile,
I’d say good-bye and kiss you
And maybe see you smile.
But then I fully realized,
That this could never be
For emptiness and memories,
Would take the place of me.
And when I thought of worldly things,
I might miss come tomorrow,
I thought of you, and when I did,
My heart was filled with sorrow.
But when I walked
through heaven’s gates,
I felt so much at home.
When God looked down and smiled at me,
From His great golden throne,
He said “This is eternity,
And all I’ve promised you.”
Today for life on earth is past,
But here it starts anew.
I promise no tomorrow,
But today will always last,
And since each day’s the same way
There’s no longing for the past.
But you have been so faithful,
So trusting and so true.
Though there were times you did some things,
You knew you shouldn’t do.
But you have been forgiven
And now at last you’re free.
So won’t you take my hand
And share my life with me?
So when tomorrow starts without me,
Don’t think we’re far apart,
For every time you think of me,
I’m right here, in your heart.

Stella, It has been very hard since you left us. I remember your big smile and always joking around. You had such a great sense of humor. We could always talk and it didn't matter how much time had passed, it always seemed like we would pick up where we left off from before. You are so missed and I will always keep you in my heart and in my prayers. Till we meet again.

Happy birthday you big beautiful soul I miss you a lot. Sometimes I wonder if you're ever watching me. I wonder why god didn't take me with you or why he wanted me to live with this pain. I've been through so much already in such short years, I wish you were here to still take care of me. I still cry over you. I'll forever love you.

Two years ago today we received the most horrific call, someone had taken your life away from you. You are missed every single day! Time does not heal all wounds-as we now know..........One day there will be justice brought against those that hurt you. Love and Miss you. Jenny

Stella I wonder why you never return my calls ? Girl to find out that somebody took your life away I could only wish I have a super power to punish those people who's responsible for your death. You are my Dearest friend and I know that you are a good loving mom,wife and friend. I Love You Stella and you are forever my best friend.

Stella had such an amazing heart and kind soul. I pray for her kids often, that they will know how much she loved them. She is at peace now with God. May all the people that love her find comfort in knowing that.
