Welcome to the
BRINGER OF LIGHT NEWSLETTER

Thanks so much for your request to receive the monthly
BRINGER OF LIGHT NEWSLETTER.

YOU'LL BE IN MY HEART

February has arrived with talk of love and sweethearts and Valentines. My special Valentine died on April 3, 2001 at the age of 21 from Acute Bronchopneumonia. Many of us have that special someone that we will always hold in our hearts; our child that has crossed over to the other side. We often wonder how did this happen? How could they have possibly died? We held their hands, we held them in our arms, we tried to protect them. But we know that these children that we now hold in our hearts are very special souls. When they were here on earth, no matter their size or age, they proved to be strong. We had that special bond with them that cannot be broken by time or death.

We were always the ones that told them "It will be alright". But now, we cry inwardly and outwardly because of the awful pain that comes with missing them. Roles have changed and we are the ones that need comfort and encouragement from our heavenly children. If we listen really close we can hear them whisper to us from the other side..."I see your tears and I will protect you. I will keep you safe and warm. I know you feel so small in your world of grief, but know that I will be there when you feel alone. Feel my arms around you. You'll be in my heart... always."

Our children that have died talk to us in their own special ways, but many people don't understand that. They don't understand how we feel because others have not had to experience what we have had to experience. The world just doesn't trust anything that the world cannot explain. We are not really much different from the rest of the world. There was a time when we did not have this awful pain and a time when we did not understand the pain of those that had experienced the loss of a child. We were so unaware of all of this. It is amazing how one unimaginable event can transform us from a place of not knowing to a place a wisdom, although it is a wisdom we do not want. As days and years pass, others will join us in grief. At this very moment those others do not know that they are next in line for this unbelievable pain. They do not understand the depth of this pain. But when their day arrives we will greet them with open arms, and tell them we will be there for them. For not only do we understand, but unfortunately now... so do they.

We wish that we were still in that place of not understanding, but the reality is that we do understand, and we do know, and we do possess that unwanted wisdom. Our destiny has been laid before us, and although we don't like it or want it, it is ours and we must be strong and carry on in honor and in memory of our children. That special someone may not physically be with us, but the wisdom of their soul tells us daily to..."Hold on, in time we will be together again, and we will once again have our arms around each other".

This life that we have been left with is a difficult one, but we know that one day we will be with the one we miss so much. Together, us and our spiritual children, will show the world that life goes on even after death has come. Death may have taken our children from our arms, but it has not, and will not, and cannot take them from our hearts. They will live on, through us, for their hearts will continue to beat inside our own hearts.

Let us turn our hearts and souls, and turn our thoughts and eyes up towards Heaven and shout those words that we only know through the wisdom of a parent's grief.... "YOU'LL BE IN MY HEART ALWAYS"

YOU'LL BE IN MY HEART

Come stop your crying.
It will be all right
Just take my hand
Hold it tight

I will protect you
all around you
I will be here
Don't you cry

For one so small,
you seem so strong
My arms will hold you,
keep you safe and warm
This bond between us
Can't be broken
I will be here
Don't you cry

'Cause you'll be in my heart
Yes, you'll be in my heart
From this day on
Now and forever more

You'll be in my heart
No matter what they say
You'll be here in my heart, always

Why can't they understand
the way we feel
They just don't trust
what they can't explain
I know we're different but,
deep inside us
We're not that different at all

And you'll be in my heart
Yes, you'll be in my heart
From this day on
Now and forever more

Don't listen to them
'Cause what do they know
We need each other,
to have, to hold
They'll see in time
I know

When destiny calls you
You must be strong
I may not be with you
But you've got to hold on
They'll see in time
I know
We'll show them together

'Cause you'll be in my heart
(believe me)
you'll be in my heart
(I'll be there)
From this day on,
Now and forever more

Oh, you'll be in my heart
(you'll be here in my heart)
No matter what they say
(I'll be with you)
You'll be here in my heart,
(I'll be there)
always
Always
I'll be with you
I'll be there for you always,
always and always,
just look over your shoulder
just look over your shoulder
just look over your shoulder
I'll be there always

I thank God, that he picked me to be your mommy. Another year has passed & the void is still in my heart. You were such a beautiful child inside & outside. You made my heart sing...You will forever be my little girl with the beautiful brown eyes & gorgeous brown hair.. Until we meet again, I will be forever missing you, and loving you eternally. I carry you in my heart..but know that Jesus has you in His hands. Proud to be known as Tracy's "mommy." I LOVE YOU..xoxo. Happy Birthday Tracy Beth..always loved and never forgotten..Mommy oxox

My Dear Baby Brother Robert

I'm sending this letter to you up in Heaven. I so wish I got to know you Robert, but sadly things got to much for you and God sent down his Angel's for you on the 11th of November 1963. God must have wanted another Baby Angel Robert, on the 11th of November 1963. I was just turned 13 years old at the time of you passing Robert. I so wish I could have got to see you Robert, but our Dad and your Mum my Stepmum must have thought it would have been to much for me seeing you so ill. I ofter wonder if you would have been married today with children, what sort of sport you would have liked, I often think about sort of things like that about you. If you would have looked like your big brother Tom. I so wish I could have got to say Goodbye to you Robert. Please always watch over me and all your family. Sending lots of little Angel Kisses up to Heaven for you my precious baby brother.

God Bless you always Robert.

LIFE STORIES


MATTHEW MULLIS

My loving son, Matthew Mullis was born on July 05, 1987 at 4:04 AM his weight was 7 lbs. 7.6 ozs. and he was 20 inches long and the most beautiful little boy I have ever laid my eyes on. He passed away on November 11, 2006 at 2:04 AM at the age of 19 in an automobile accident only 2 short miles from home. My son was a senior in High School and an honor roll student for the first time in his life; he was going to walk across that stage despite all of those who thought he couldn't and receive his hard earned diploma this year "2007". I was allowed May 24, 2007 by the High School in which my son attended to make this journey for him. Though its meaning now has changed it was with great honor to have with me my family and many of my son’s friends while accepting one of the many great accomplishments he made in this life. With great pride and a very sadden heart later that night I had the privilege of placing in his room his so desired High School Diploma. "Matthew your momma is so proud of you. Not one person there deserved, nor worked any harder for there diploma than you." Like many of his friends he was learning to play the guitar. He also loved computers from aim to myspace, and of course limewire where he would download his music. He was happiest when surrounded by his friends. He was a generous, loving, silly, funny, searching for normal young man. He was my only son and most of all "My Baby". He was a true momma's boy. He has left behind so many that love him from me, his step-dad, his sister Jennifer, his step-sister Allison, his three step-brothers Joseph, Chase, Austin and his two beautiful nieces Ana and Britani; "God he loves them so much", his Grand-parents mamaw & granddad, his sweet girlfriend Hannah, Nancy and Greg Hannah’s parents, and his best friends whom it would take this entire page to list.

January 16 is the day the Persian Gulf War broke out and Randy was with the ground crew. I remember so well where I was, I was in collage class. My teacher knew already that my one son was over there. I told my teacher..... I'm going home to be with my kids. He said he understood and for me to drive safely going home which was about 25 miles from where collage was. The kids and I sat up all that night listening to CNN on the TV.

Randy had called me a week before that saying.... "Mom dont listen to TV. You won't get the true picture. But if you hear that the ground crew went in the front line, that's my group. I am in there in the front line."

A week later... the war happened. I was so scared. I prayed and cried all the way home for GOD to please take care of my baby boy. He did, but Randy came home a changed man. He had PTSD.

My first dream of Adam had him standing in a 3/4 profile. (I realized 2 days later why). He was wearing Army green dress shirt and pants.

His dress shirt and pants were the opposite color of what they usually are- his shirt was dark green, and the dress pants were colored light green. His face seemed so relaxed and appeared to be peac. There was a rose colored glow around him.

I have had many dreams of him;the common theme is school. Either he is studying going to school, he, grandpa and I are talking about, etc.

Love you, Adam. Hope to see you again soon, in a dream. M💙M

FUNNY MEMORIES OF OUR CHILDREN

Wm Scott Myers

Motorcycle accident
11 05 73 - 7 28 06

One evening Scott was on his way home and the route he took he had to pass a cemetery. The cemetery was a few blocks long. As he was driving, he thought he saw something out of the corner of his eye. He turned his head to see if he saw, what he thought he saw. He didn't see anything. As soon as he turned his head back, he saw something white again. He was getting spooked. He turned his head real fast and once again it was gone. He was really spooked then. He was approaching a stop light that was about to turn red. He had no choice but to stop. He was ready to run that red light if he saw anything. He turned his head to check the cemetery, next thing he knew, something bounced out from behind an upright stone, he almost freaked and then realized what it was he had been seeing and thought was following him. It was several white balloons tied together that had some helium still in them and was bouncing along and among the stones. He said, "What a relief, I was getting ready to run that red light, it scared the crap out of me! I knew I wasn't crazy and just seeing things! I thought it was a ghost following me!"

To hear him tell that story was so funny!

On July 16, 2007, I decided to purchase a STAR in Beau's name through the International Star Registry. Ironic, that my Retirement Date was on July 16th. Anyway, the star named, Jason Beau Morgan, is in the Orion Constellation meaning "Hunter." Beau did love to hunt, so I think this was meant to be. The International Star Registry, Inc., started archiving star assignation in 1979, which is amazing, since this was the year Beau was born.

Celebration of Love

Recently we celebrated my son's birthday on January 2nd. It has been 6 1/2 years since Shannon passed and As a family, we decided to celebrate his life going forward. We used to send balloons to Heaven on his death date and wanted to move in a more positive direction for all family members.

We planned a dinner party with family and friends. We had a birthday cake for him and my husband gave a toast in his honor. Gentleman Jack and coke was my son's drink of choice and that's what we used. After dinner we all went outside and had fireworks and sent lighted lanterns to heaven with messages of love.

We know this is something my son,Shannon would have loved. He so enjoyed time spent with family and friends. I honestly felt he was close by.

We will always mourn the death of our son but it was so wonderful to listen to stories and cherished memories. This has helped us all especially the children who loved him so. May e this idea could help someone else heal.

I love the journal idea that Arlene (Daniel's mom) received from her family. I would definitely cherish a gift like that! thank you for including my little sign from Christopher and Julian. that is so very kind of you.

I have to let you know that with all of the hype surrounding the newest Star Wars movie, you and your Luke have been very much in my thoughts. We went to see the movie this past weekend, and thankfully it is dark in the theater, as I cried like a baby. Luke, may the force be with you, forever and always!

love and hugs,
Maria
Christopher's mommy forever
