Ellen Varley:That was beautiful. I miss my just turned 30 yr old daughter, Candace Rae Watson soo much!! I can hardly wait for her to come and take me Home w/her. My life is a living hell without my beautiful, sweet and caring Baby.
Don't grieve for me, for now I am free.
I'm following the path God has laid you to see.
I took his hand when I heard him call.
I turned my back and left it all.
I could not stay another day,
To laugh, to love, to work, or play.
Tasks left undone must stay that way.
I found that peace at the close of the day.
If my parting has left a void,
Then fill it with remembered joys....
A friendship shared, a laugh, a kiss,
Oh yes these things I too will miss.
Be not burdened with times of sorrow.
I wish you the sunshine of tomorrow.
My life's been full, I savored so much.
Good friends, good times, a loved ones touch.
Perhaps my time seemed to brief,
Don't lengthen it now with undue grief.
Lift up your hearts and peace to thee.
God wanted me now; He set me free.....

I'm fairly new to this site & I thank God for it! But, I cant figure out how to use most of the features. Like, My Friends - Invite (everytime I try it, I get a message that an error has occurred but it doesn't say what). I've also tried Invite friends from other pages & I get the same message. How do I get people to use my Inbox? Sometimes I just hit a button just to see what happens & I think I REALLY messed up about 1 hr ago. I hit UPLOAD FILES & now I'm seeing my name on other people's comments. That's REALLY causing a problem!!! Also, event, blog post, share this page (what page & share with who?) I know I need ALOT of answers but I sure would like to get the most from this wonderful website. Thank you so much for your time, Jan Hoyle Personal email: Janrrscl@aol.com
My 19 year old daughter died in 2004. I have went to different types of support groups, read many articles, but I do not belong and don't seem to fit in. I have no one to connect to or talk to that will ever understand. If two people are in a room and one ends up shot in the head-dead,body moved before Police are called, How am I supposed to believe my daughter did that. The Death Certificate, Autopsy Report do not say Suicide. I wait for him to talk, I know he killed her and some days I don't know what to do.

HE LOVED HIS GIRLS SO MUCH, THE OLDEST LOOKS JUST LIKE HIM WHICH IS A BLESSING. I JUST TAKE IT ONE DAY AT A TIME, HE IS MY BABY. I LOOK AT HIS PICTURE AND STILL CAN'T BELIVE IT. I KNOW SOME DAY I WILL SEE HIM. HE SAID HE WILL NEVER LEAVE ME AND I BELIVE IT.. DAVID I LOVE YOU AND MISS YOU SO MUCH.
Sitting in that room waiting to hear
You are down the hall so far yet so near
I know they are going to tell me something I
don't want to hear
Something I don't think my heart can bear
The nurse comes in my hope returns
Could it be I can see you and hold your hand?
No, the words she said made my heart burn
I knew you were gone never to return
I screamed at her "What are you saying? Is my
It can not be that's not what the doctor said"
The look on her face told me she was unaware
That I did not know, if only I had been told
She ran from the room as I cried on the floor
"Oh no, oh no MY son is not dead
I did not say goodbye he can't be gone
The doctor said I could see him
Why did he wait so long?
I looked at your lifeless body and wished it
were me instead.
But God wanted YOU so he sent his angels to
They lifted you up and took you home,where
there is no pain, no tears
To live forever with him where there are no fears
It has been one year since you went away
My heart still hurts, tears still fall everyday
God will call me some day so here I will stay
Until his angels come to take me away.
I know I will see you standing at the gate
Waiting for me but I don't know the date
With your hand outreached saying "Mom I'm
You didn't need to say goodbye or shed a tear"
I was tired I was weak and I needed to rest
So God took me home because he knew it was
In loving Memory of my son

hi my name is shanta 25 years old.i just lost my mom 12-13-2009 and i feel like my life is over.my mom had lung cancer.she was only 49.my mom was a very nice person. my mom found out in july-2002 that she had non small cell lung cancer.that was the day my world ended.
NO parent should have to out live their children,its a pain that never leaves.Nov.14,2004 is when I had to let my son Samuel Lewis Runkle, go on his journey with the Great Spirit.On the evening of Nov.12,2009.IT turned into my nightmare on Elm St. He had took a beating from the guy in back seat with him,and was left out in the street late that night. It was a cover up from the start.The driver was the son of a fire marshal here in town.The driver drove to his home,where he was interviewed there at home. another guy had drove back near to where they left him.He was ridden with grief that he went to another bar to talk of what had happened,and said the police was taken care of it.The 3rd guy had to leave town for whatever his reasons were.he's the one who did the damage to Sammy.My husband had told the police officers,this 3rd guy had beat my son previous to that night,it took awhile to heal.He did fear this guy cause of the last fight whipped him over with a baseball bat.Now time has passed the truth has surfaced.So those of us who love Sammy are victims of the ugliness that comes with the guilt that they caused their own self.I would call it a hate crime,Sammy was of German and Creek Indian decent favoring the Creek traits more.So the ugly threats and racial slurs made towards our people are that of words only to rile us up.We take it one day at a time.And hope one day we'll be at peace with what took place in our lives.Sammy had good in him,warm hearted,trusting,good natured,His good looks and a beautiful smile,and sense of humor was his best gift to all.We went cold case on his death,no matter how ugly it maybe the truth is that THE TRUTH....His legacy lives on with the the beauty of his life he touch and place in our lives and hearts.He was our blessing.The Great Spirit gave us a gift to cherish eternity.I'm glad I stumbled upon this site Legacy you are truly a present from above.May your journey be plentiful and rewarding.

My daughter Nemit Elizebath Savgi White passed on January 4th, 2009 in Tenn. She was traveling from Kentucky to Georgia with her stepdad when a truck rear end there truck at 8:29 A.M. when she passed her stepdad suvived that crash, her life cut short without any warning, the night before she passed, we had a mother and daughter talk, she explained I'm okay, i am happy, all i want is to live a happy and Godly life, I'm good. She accomplished the goals that she had worked very hard for her MBA, and set in her career. This young womam is very compassionate, considerate, loving and kind with a very strong will to do for others. We missed that beautiful and gorgeous smile she wears. She left us with a Legacy of bountiful and wonderful memories, she was my only daughter my best friend, my star my everything, dearest to my heart my one and only. Legacy thank you for this opportunity to share and communicate our thoughts and love for our loved one that as passed. Thank you.
My father passed away on Dec12,2008. He been sick just for brief time with terminal brain cancer. My mother and I tried keeping him home as long as we could. He passed while holding my hand very peacefully.
Hi Legacy, great thing you've got going here with wonderful people here who need to share. I am from niles since 1962 straight back west on oakton street from you. My mom is still back there off oakton and waukegan behind the home depot in the shopping center. I miss chicago so much, if you pass by give mom a big hug for me, I am afraid I will lose her too someday. She won't move out here in nor cal by me. I am caregiving here for my mother-in-law who has cancer and on oxygen 24/7. How do I get my mom to move closer to me so I can take care of her too before something happens to her? Have a wonderful day. Carl
