In Loving Memory of
Rob Northrop, Jr.
October 28, 1971 - December 23, 1997

This is a special gift for Angel Rob's birthday from my dear friend Linda and her Angel Tina.


Please God, make them remember that
Today is a special, birthday.
Make them understand that
The memories don't go away.
Bless them, with ears to hear and hearts that care.
Enable them to listen while I share.
Shelter them that they may never know my pain.
Help them to help me know that my child's life
was not in vain.
Help them to remember, Lord that I wish
That my child was here
So we could still celebrate.
To understand that I still
Feel the nearness of my child.
To see beyond my smile and the Words, "I'm okay."
Please God, just let one remember today
Is a special birthday!

This gift for Rob's birthday is from my friend Susanne.


Candles burn for your Birthday Rob. Love you and miss you, my son, today and always...

Today Is My Birthday

Today is my birthday
Celebrate my life with you
And remember the good times
Not the bad and do not be sad;
Look up towards the sun
And catch every ray of light upon your cheek
For I am there with you.

Today is my birthday
Be happy for me
I lived a short but full, happy life
I had the pleasure of love
And the joy of my family
Do not be sad
Look up towards the stars
And catch each twinkle in your heart.
For I am there with you.

Today is my birthday
My legacy is not wealth or mighty belongings,
My legacy is you and your life.
Spend it wisely and carefully
Guard it always
Do not be sad
Feel the wind on your face and in your hair
And know that I loved you
For I am there with you, in your laughter
And in your hearts.

Today is my birthday
Learn to live again without me
Take my strength with you
For you are not alone.
Do not be sad
Feel the rain on your face
Feel all life's treasures and
Know that you are alive!
At each step of the way
I will help you
For I am with you always
Until we meet again.

Today is my birthday....

This is a loving gift from my friend Monika and her Angel Josh.

My body is gone but I'm always near
I'm everything you feel, see or hear
My spirit is free, but I'll never depart
As long as you keep me alive in your heart

Remember Me

Remember me in quiet days
While raindrops whisper on your pane.
But in your memories have no grief,
Let just the joy we knew remain.

Remember me when evening stars
Look down on you with steadfast eyes.
Remember if once you wake
To catch a glimpse of red sunrise.

And when your thoughts do turn to me,
Know that I would not have you cry.
But live for me and laugh for me,
When you are happy, so am I.

Remember an old joke we shared;
Remember me when spring walks by.
Think once of me when you are glad
And while you live, I shall not die.

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.

My Husband and I went to visit with Rob for his 44th Birthday... I wanted to bring flowers and 2 little balloons and the Halloween gift for Rob.
I just feel as time has pass that Rob is in my heart now, I know Rob is with me.
I do miss Rob, I miss seeing his wonderful smile ~ which was called the million dollar smile from when he was a little boy
and even when he was so very sick Rob still had it, you can see it in all his pictures,
I am so very PROUD of Rob and that Rob was my SON, and I just miss Robbie being here with us in life.
I miss Robbie joking with me.

A friend can hear a tear drop.
