Remember me when the flowers bloom
Early in the spring
Remember me on sunny days
In the fun that summer brings

Remember me in the fall
As you walk through the leaves of gold
And in the wintertime ~ remember me
In the stories that are told

But most of all remember
Each day ~ right from the start
I will be forever near
For I live within your heart

I wanted to share this awesome poem with you all. I wanted to be there today and my thoughts are with you. Heidi is like a sister to me and so I got to know how important you all are to her, so I'm hurting as well. All you can do is take one day at a time!

We thought of you with love today
but that is nothing new
we thought about you yesterday and days before that too
We think of you in silence
We often speak your name
Now all we have is memories
and you're picture in a frame
your memory is our keep sake
which we'll never part
God has you in his keeping
We have you in our hearts
~R.I.P Chris Hanson ? ~

Weep not for me though I am gone into that gentle night.
Grieve if you will, but not for long upon my soul's sweet flight.
I am at peace, my soul's at rest
There is no need for tears.
For with your love I was so blessed.
For all those many years.
There is no pain, I suffer not,
The fear now all is gone.
Put now these things out of your thoughts,
In your memory I live on.
Remember not my fight for breath
Remember not the strife.
Please do not dwell upon my death,
But celebrate my life.
Love you, Jody Newcombe

Chris, I seriously cant believe you're gone. Im still trying to wrap my head around it. I left heights months ago but we stayed in touch. You were such an amazing kid. I remember the first day i met you, you hugged me and i had no idea who you were. I didn't for a few weeks, then we actually talked and you ended up being my favorite freshman last year. When i saw you at homecoming, you ran up to me and hugged me so big. Im gonna miss your hugs so much Chris. I love you. I'll see you later buddy.

Chris, I miss it when you call me your buddy, and hug me. I'll miss how bright you get when you see me. Your funny teeth, and chewbacca noises. Your warm, full hugs. I will see you again. P.S, when I get to heaven.. I'm moving in with you, because next door isn't close enough. Please rest in paradise, I miss you like crazy. There's so much I didn't get to say, or do. So many things we couldv'e done together. Watch over me until we meet outside the golden gates. God will let us be together for eternity. And then we really be friends forever. I wrote a poem for you. I've been crying a lot, everyone loves you. My hearts broken that you were taken home early. But God needed you, more than I wanted you. <3 Rest In Paradise, -your buddy for eternity, Holly.

NATIVE AMERICAN PRAYER

I give you this one thought to keep --

I am with you still – I do not sleep.

I am a thousand winds that blow,

I am the diamond glints on snow,

I am the sunlight on ripened grain,

I am the gentle autumn rain.



When you awaken in the morning's hush,

I am the swift, uplifting rush

of quiet birds in circled flight.

I am the soft stars that shine at night.

Do not think of me as gone –

I am with you still – in each new dawn.



The original poem has been attributed to Mary Frye as author, and reads:

Do not stand at my grave and weep
I am not there; I do not sleep.
I am a thousand winds that blow,
I am the diamond glints on snow,
I am the sun on ripened grain,
I am the gentle autumn rain.
When you awaken in the morning's hush
I am the swift uplifting rush
Of quiet birds in circled flight.
I am the soft stars that shine at night.
Do not stand at my grave and cry,
I am not there; I did not die.

may the creator give you strength in this time of need. My thoughts and prayers are with you and your family
