On your 25th birthday

I never had a chance to see you grow into a man .
God called you forth to heaven,
Ending dreams that life had planned.

Death cannot diminish ,
A love so strong and pure.
Someday I will be with you,
Of that I'm very sure.

Mommy loves you and misses you
Always and forever

There is no greater power in the Universe than the power of love. The feeling of love is the highest frequency you can emit.

"Whatsoever ye shall ask in prayer, believing, ye shall receive" Matthew 21.22

"What things so ever ye desire, then ye pray, believed that ye receive them, and ye shall have them" Mark 11.24

I will see you in eternity my son, and hold you in my arms forever,

With undying LOVE, your mother, Jacki

So many miles and years between our lives but memories forever. I am so thankful we were able to say Hello a few weeks ago and seen the young man you became. I sat in awe as I looked at all the resemblances of your fathers eyes and smile and even my sons locks of hair that you had in common. Micheal and Jackie our hearts hurt for your loss and pray your memories of all of his smiles and laughter help in your healing.

Jacki, I am so sorry, I loved Steve like a son and a brother and I'm going to miss him a lot. He always had a smile and I enjoyed the time we spent together over the last few years. He was so happy when he passed his welding tests for the fitters and I was so proud of him! He will be missed by many, and I know he's watching over all of us from Heaven! I love you Scooba Steve! Rest in Peace my brother and friend!
