In Loving Memory of

"Us"

The loss of a child no matter what age
Fills me up inside with so much rage
I didn't get a chance to say good-bye to you
It just wasn't long enough; you left so soon

I feel cheated; You were not suppose to leave
Not yet anyway....
Had you known, other choices could have been made.

What happened that night,
no one will really ever know
Too many questions, too many stories told

The only people who do know the truth
are those that lied.
So I go and sit in my room to scream and cry.
Not one person would step forward to ease my mind.

The pain of losing you is so hard to bear;
I wish I could have been there,
for you and your children.
Now it's too late, you are gone.

I don't know why God would take you
and leave me behind
I miss you - always in my heart and always on my mind
I will never be the same,
All I have are memories until we meet again.
~ Written by Angel Brittany's mother Pam in 2010



 


These four loving gifts for Brittany are from my friend Tami. She also made the beautiful graphic at the top of this page.










WE'LL MEET AGAIN

They say you will not come again,
But I shall always hear
Your voice in silence and in song,
And feel you ever near.

They say you have passed beyond,
Unto the joy supreme.
But I can always call you back
Into the land of dream.

For death is but a gateway
To the great reality,
A new beginning, not an end
Of human destiny.
In spite of grief and pain,
And deep within my heart I know
That we shall meet again.

Remember Me with Love...
Author Unknown

As years pass by, and others rarely mention my name,
remember me with love.
When my anniversary date arrives,
take a moment to say my name out loud.
If tears fall, let them.
Wherever you are, know that I am.
I live in your heart, mind and soul.
Don't worry, you will never forget me
and we will be together again.
I have taught you about a mother's love
in a way nothing else possibly could.
Don't waste this lesson,
use the love you still have to give to others.
Comfort others who have had a loss, do it in my memory.
A little bit of me, lives on in each person you touch.
You have the power to make my legacy,
one that I would be proud of.
Light a candle, buy a rose, perform an act of kindness.
Our love is so great,
no remembrance could ever be large enough
to show how much you love me,
for true love has no boundaries.
And don't forget, I love you too.
Look at a puffy cloud, flower or bird and have no doubt;
my angel spirit is.
Contemplate the many gifts I've left,
how I've affected your life in a good way.
I've shown you how precious life is
and given you a greater appreciation of it.
I've let you discover how strong you really are.
I hope my short time here has made you discover what is really important
Has it made you a better person? I hope so!
Your faith has been tested, and hopefully it has strengthened.
I hope your heart is filled with peace.
Most of all, know that our love is eternal.
If you think of me today, I will be rejoicing from above.
To know you have remembered me with your precious mother's love!
Remember me with love!

Mom,

Hey! How are you? I'm writing you this letter to let you know I still love you and think about you often. Mom I know that you think that I don't care and I don't listen but what you don't understand is I do!
I hope you are doing okay because you mean a lot to me and I don't want you to be sad or anything. I hope you're not mad at me or anything. Right now I'm trying to do the best I can.
It seems like life gets harder every day and there's nothing you can do to stop it. If it's not one thing it's another.

You know I'm working at Walmart! I've got great hours. I work 7 to 4, 10 to 7, and 11 to 8. I'm getting some hours. I hope you are proud of me. I'm usually off three days a week which is good.
I hope you can come by sometime to see me and Dalton. He is doing just fine. I think he's going to walk pretty soon.
I'm driving almost every day now. I am trying to get my license.

Well I guess I'll end this letter. I'm just a phone call away if you need me. I love you, I miss you and I miss talking to you. ❤️

Love always,
your daughter
Brittany M Guleff❤️
❤️ I love you❤️







Letter to Mom

Mom, please donít feel guilty
It was just my time to go.
I see you are still feeling sad,
And the tears just seem to flow.
We all come to earth for our lifetime,
And for some itís not many years
I donít want you to keep crying
You are shedding so many tears.
I havenít really left you
Even though it may seem so.
I have just gone to my heavenly home,
And Iím closer to you than you know.
Just believe that when you say my name
Iím standing next to you,
I know you long to see me,
But thereís nothing I can do.
But Iíll still send you messages
And hope you understand,
That when your time comes to ďcross over,Ē
Iíll be there to take your hand.

You are the winds that blow,
You are the diamonds in the snow,
You are the sun that melts my pain,
You are the gently autumns rain.
You are the graceful bird in flight,
You are the stars that shine at night,
You were the heartbeat of my life,
I wish you weren't gone but here instead.
We have you as an angel now.
Blessed by the peace you bring.
And although I cannot see you.
I can feel the brush of your wings.
You bring me light in darkness
And calmness in times of fear.
And hope lives in the knowing
That you are always near.

HER JOURNEY'S JUST BEGUN

Don't think of her as gone away~
her journey's just begun,
life holds so many faucets~
this earth is only one,
Just think of her as resting
From the sorrows and the tears
in a place of warmth and comfort
where there are no days or years,
Think how she must be wishing
that we could know today
how nothing but our sadness can really pass away,
And think of her as living
in the hearts of those she touched...
for nothing loved is ever lost~
and she was loved so much
~~~Ellen Brenneman

IN THE SILENCE

In the silence Mom you hear me,
In the silence I am here.
In the silence you can feel me,
In the silence it is clear........
That my spirit hasn't left you,
I am just a thought away,
You can see me in the shadows,
Anytime you look my way.
Look for me in the sunshine,
And in the stars at night.
In the wind, trees and flowers,
Everything that is in sight.
Talk to me, say my name,
Know that I'm still here,
In my death I have a new life,
And one day it will be clear.
So talk to me and look for me
In everything you do,
For I haven't gone so far away,
I'm really right next to you.

The best and most beautiful things in the world
cannot be seen or even touched--
they must be felt with the heart.
- Helen Keller








We Do Not Need A Special Day

We do not need a special day
To bring you to our minds
The days we do not think of you
Are very hard to find

Each morning when we awake
We know that you are gone
And no one knows the heartache
As we try to carry on

Our hearts still ache with sadness
And secret tears still flow
What it meant to lose you
No one will ever know

Our thoughts are always with you
Your place no one can fill
In life we loved you dearly
In death we love you still

There will always be a heartache
And often a silent tear
But always a precious memory
Of the days when you were here

If tears could build a staircase
And heartaches make a lane
We'd walk the path to Heaven
And bring you home again

We hold you close, within our hearts
And there you will remain
To walk with us throughout our lives
Until we meet again

Our family chain is broken now
And nothing seems the same
But as God calls us one by one
The chain will link again.
Written by Connie Dyer







My Memory

Keep my memory with you,
For memories never die;
I will be there with you;
When you look across the sky.

I will be there in the clouds
In the birds that fill the air,
In the beauty of a fragrant rose,
You will find my memory there.

You will feel me in the tenderness,
Of a baby's gentle touch,
You will hear me if you listen,
In the twilight's gentle hush.

When your hearts are heavy,
And you feel that you are all alone,
Just reach down deep inside of you,
For your heart is now my home.

I will always be with you,
I will never go away,
For I will live on in your hearts,
Forever and a day.
~ Author unknown





Some people come into our lives,
leave footprints on our hearts,
and we are never, ever the same.
~ unknown






Use Somebody
Song by Kings of Leon

I've been roaming around
Always looking down at all I see
Painted faces, fill the places I can't reach

You know that I could use somebody
You know that I could use somebody

Someone like you, and all you know, and how you speak
Countless lovers under cover of the street

You know that I could use somebody
You know that I could use somebody
Someone like you

Off in the night, while you live it up, I'm off to sleep
Waging wars to shape the poet and the beat
I hope it's gonna make you notice
I hope it's gonna make you notice

Someone like me
Someone like me
Someone like me, somebody

Someone like you, somebody
Someone like you, somebody
Someone like you, somebody

I've been roaming around,
Always looking down at all I see





Thank you so much to my dear friend, Linda, Mom to Angel Tina,
for all your help with getting the song, Use Somebody, for this page!
