Craig Stewart Tolley (15)
7/11/82 - 6/23/98

Craig Stewart Tolley entered this world 7 weeks early and left this world 7 decades early. He was a sweet, smart, kind, genuinely good person. He was devasted by biochemical imbalances that made him feel his life was not his own. And in a moment of anguish not unlike many other such moments his impulsivity went unchecked and he fastened a belt tightly around his neck and slipped quietly into heaven. We miss his earthly presence dearly, but his spirit goes on within our hearts.

Trena Lee Grimmett (16)
03/06/83 - 03/15/99

Trena was our daughter, our sister, our grandchild, our neice, our cousin, and our friend. She was loved by many people. Trena was a very creative and giving person. She loved butterflies. She began her struggle with depression two years before her death. She was in counseling and she was searching for a closer walk with Jesus. She had just attended Happening 37 in Lousiana. Her family and friends did not know how ill she was. She hid her depression well. Trena will always be remembered as a beautiful spirit who could not conform to this world. Her freckles, frizzy hair, and fast tongue will always be remembered. She is free now. She is in the arms of Jesus.

5/8/82 - 11/7/97

For Trevor:

Oh, our bright and shining boy,
The hole you left is bigger than
The space you filled.

Why is this?

Memories of yesterday can never be enough
To lighten the mourning of lost tomorrows,
Though our hearts overflow with love for you
And always will.

Cody David Bradley (18)
11/21/79 - 7/13/98
Shiny long hair flying behind,
Moving with a Paul Bunyun stride,
He flies toward his destination,
With youthful zest and pride.

A billed hat perched to the back,
Plaid jacket swinging so free,
Lover of outdoors and sunshine,
He watches all there is to see.

Where is my tiny wide-eyed baby?
Where the curious, questioning child?
What happened to the happy toddler?
Or the boy who explored the wild?

Gone are his collections
Of fossils, shells, and rocks,
Toys are tucked out of sight,
While hours on the phone he talks.

He marches to a different song,
Needing so much to be free,
But his heart cries for acceptance,
And his soul no longer fills with glee.

Struggling to be his own person,
Feeling at 18 heís a man,
I see the child within him,
But he wants to say "I can!"

Abandoned by dad; betrayed by "friends",
Intelligence different but great,
No one to understand as he does them,
Far too quick moves his fate.

Despair replaces youthful dreams,
Betrayal and rejection his heart sate,
Caught in a tidal wave of emotion,
O God! Too soon, itís too late.

I grieve for the light of my life,
My challenging, sensitive, slim boy,
Ah, if only he knew how we loved him,
Heís have been saved just by our joy.

Full of sorrow, I must say goodbye,
To my only child---my son, my love,
Clinging to many precious memories,
Knowing someday Iíll see him above.

"Did you ever know that you're my hero?
You're everything I would like to be.
I can fly higher than an eagle
You are the wind beneath my wings."

Love forever,

Daniel J. Kennedy (16)
6/19/71 - 5/3/88


Danny is missed by everyone.
If he were here we'd all have fun.
We loved him with all our hearts
Never dreamed we'd be apart.

On a horrible day
Our lives all went gray.
Forever asleep he now lays.
Because God took him away.

Every morning when the sun shines
In our minds he's not far behind.
We all miss him so much
What we'd do for one more touch

It was hard to be dealing
With all the hurtfulfeelings.
It has been so long
But it still feels wrong.

Oh what are we to do
Danny we still love you.

"Holding Hands with God"

For all who see her
Look at her well,
For this is just an outer shell.
In the end, all happiness faded away,
and she took her life one sad, sad day.
Missing her more than words could ever say.
Loving her, Remembering her, every single day.

Love, Mom & Dad

The Rose

Some say love it is the river that drowns the tender reed. Some say love it is the razor that leaves your soul to bleed. Some say love it is a hunger an aching endless need. I say love it is a flower and you, it's only seed. It's the heart afraid of breaking that never learns to Dance. It"s the dream afraid of waking that never takes a chance. It's the one who won't be taken who cannot seem to give, aand the soul afraid of dying that never learns to live. When the night has been to lonely and the road has been to long, and you think that love is only for the lucky and the strong. Just remember in the winter far beneath the bitter snows lies the seed that with the sun's love in the spring Becomes the Rose.

(written by Amanda Mcbride)

These words I dedicate to my beautiful daughter Jennifer. I will love you forever and ever and keep you safe in my heart. Oh Jen how I wish you could have made it to the spring you left us in January with the snow but You are forever my Rose.

Love Mom
