Our life changed that day we found out you were there
Beginning your life, so small unaware
What would you be like
Would we know what to do
Would we be good parents
And take care of you
We prayed only good things would happen for you
That you’d be successful in all that you do
You would find happiness, love and respect
A life rich and full without any regrets
But life was stopped short
It was you time to leave
The angels arrived, but
In our hearts we believe
You’re safe and secure
Without worry or care
Know your family’s protected
We will always be there
Chad, your life was a challenge
Yet, we knew you’d be great
Every night we thanked God
That He could create
Someone so special
Like there was no other
We’ll love you forever...
Your Father and Mother

I feel like I' ve just existed
And now it's been a year
I don't know how I' ve lived and breathed
Without you being here.
I know you lived your lifetime
As short as that seems to me,
But the pain in my heart is still so great,
Yet I know your spirit is free.
At times I think I hear you
The thoughts come to my mind.
I struggle for the sound of your voice,
But your voice I cannot find.
Yet you come to me in many ways
So I know you did not die,
You want to tell me that you' re close,
And to please stop asking Why.
Our lives on earth seem all too brief,
Or brief as it seems to me.
But where you are is forever,
GOD calls that Eternity !
(By Joy Curnutt, In Memory of Jason 11/26/74 - 4/11/99)
Come follow the Double Rainbows, Mama,
they will bring you right to me.
You should have known I’d never leave you, Mama,
without something beautiful to see.
I followed those Double Rainbows to my son,
lifeless, swollen and bruised. I was empty, tired
and heartbroken, lost, angry and confused.
As I drove in through those Double Rainbows, I tried
to push back the tears. While my mind searched through
my memories, my heart thought of the years; from your
tiny newborn face, to your grown up
worries and fears.
Why was God being so cruel?
Why was God being so unkind?
I knew in my heart that answer
I desperately needed to find.
Please don’t be angry with God Mama, you see
He took me by the hand. He never let me feel pain
or suffer, He never even let me land.
The only thing that comforted me, was the lightning and
the thunder, and those beautiful Double Rainbows
we always seemed to stay right under.
Something inside told me, with every crack
of the thunder, this had to be a message from my son,
My love, My little wonder.
Yes, it was me who sent the rainbows Mama, so that all of you
could see, just how beautiful it is in heaven, with God,
and that I was happy and my soul was free.
Now every time you see Rainbows Mama, you will always
be close to me. I’m waiting for those who loved me Mama,
so that we can always be happy in heaven with God,
For all eternity.

Tammy, I know that you are at peace,
It helps so much to set our hearts at ease.
We loved you more than anyone could know,
It hurt us so bad to have to let you go
But i know God knows what's best
That's why he put our baby to rest.
We cry and think of you every day
It just doesn't seem fair for God to take you away.
I'm trying to find comfort in all of my grief
And it does help knowing you've found great relief,
For now you are free from all suffering and pain,
So our great loss, became your great gain.
But we know babe, you are safe in God's land above,
Where there is nothing but peace and love.
We know that some day we all have to die,
It makes us so happy,
knowing you'll be waiting for us in the sky.
Jesus Loves You And So Do We
Love, Mom and Dad
