AUTUMN'S AUTOGRAPH

September 1982 drifted in with its beautiful falling leaves and for the first time I had a child in school. Emily (my daughter, Luke's older sister) was in kindergarten. Emily just loved her Kindergarten teacher and talked and talked about her everyday when she got home from school as Luke and I sat there and listened. Luke took it all in and asked me..."Momma, when can I go to school?" I would tell him..."Soon, Luke, very soon." But, I was not looking forward to both of my little angels being in school, although I knew it would be great for them.

Every day Emily would bring home a little drawing or a page of letters she was learning with her little autograph in the corner. We hung every one of them on the refrigerator and when the refrigerator became covered we would remove the oldest one and replace it with her newest work of art. She was so proud and couldn't wait for her dad to get home from work to show him her special artwork.

Emily's Kindergarten teacher was one of those special teachers that we would ALWAYS remember fondly. Once when Emily was sick from school, her teacher stopped by the house on the way home from class just to see how Emily was doing.

Finally after two years of anticipation it was Luke's turn to go to school. He was so excited and proud! I'll never forget how cute he looked standing there in the driveway with his little book bag, all dressed and ready for school with a huge smile on his face.

His first day of school was a proud and happy one for him but a sad one for me, because now BOTH of my children were in school and I knew I would miss them so much. But when Luke came home from school that first day his smile was bigger than it was that morning before he left. He reached in his little book bag and pulled out one of his drawings that he had done at school. He asked me...."Momma, where is the tape?", because he knew it was now his turn to display his school work on the refrigerator. So there right in the middle of the refrigerator we placed his work of art with his little autograph in the corner.

Emily and Luke both told me about their day at school, but Luke just couldn't calm down. He talked and talked and talked about his teacher, the same teacher that his big sister had when she was in Kindergarten. Emily and I sat there and listened as he told us how much fun he had and how many new friends he had made..... over and over and over.

When Luke died at the age of 21, Luke and Emily's kindergarten teacher wrote the following letter to all of us.....

"My heart, thoughts and prayers are with you for our Lord's comfort, healing and peace to be with you. I can not imagine what it must be like losing a child and a brother. Know that Luke will not be lost in my heart or my remembrances. I can still see the big eyes always watching, taking it all in and not being able to hide his feelings. I also remember the twinkle!" Luke was a child one always remembered. I do so wish I had had the privilege of reconnecting with him as a young adult. I know in my heart he was a fine, gentle and caring young person. This I know because I knew the adults who reared him and know he could not have become someone too different from them. He had tough shoes to walk in, following you Emily. As a young boy he looked up to you so much, so I know he followed in a good many of your footsteps voluntarily. I know your relationship was close. Hold tightly to your precious memories --- ALL of them for they create the total picture of Luke! May our Lord continue to hold you all close to him as you each grieve Luke in your own individual ways. He was a light in this world and will continue to light many hearts as they remember who he is. With much love."

We will always cherish this now tear-stained letter. There at the bottom of the letter was her autograph. But just as Emily and Luke's autograph, it was so much more than just a name, it was a remembrance of someone who had touched all of our lives.

As the leaves of time drift down this September they will carry those memories of kindergarten, of little drawings, and of a life that drifted away too soon, each leaf etched with .........Autumn's autograph.

AUTOGRAPH

Your name was etched upon my heart,
When you first journeyed down this path.
You came into my life to live.
You touched me... with your autograph.

And then with crayons on the wall,
So secretly you placed your name.
No famous artist's works compare,
Although your autograph was plain.

Home from school with special papers,
So proudly placed upon the fridge.
Your writings and your works of art.
Your autograph along the edge.

Then came the essays and reports,
Employment and applications,
Greeting cards that you signed with love,
Your autograph, your foundation.

Your name, still etched upon my heart,
Again you journey down that path.
You left my life for worlds unknown.
You touch me... with your autograph.

AUTOGRAPH

The song Autograph is on the album of the same name and is the 14th album by American singer-songwriter John Denver released in February 1980. The song talks of a desire to be with someone for always and how a person's life is their true autograph.

AUTOGRAPH

Here I am closing my eyes again
Trying so hard not to see
All the things that I see
Almost willing to lie again
I swear that it just isnt so
It just isnt me

We are never alone
Even though wed like to be

Then I go and open my eyes again
Love in your eyes is the thing
That Id most like to see
Id be willing to die again
To know of a place and a time
Where it always could be

To be always with you
And you always with me

This is my autograph
Here in the songs that I sing
Here in my cry and my laugh
Here in the love that I bring

To be always with you
And you always with me

Say a prayer and open your heart again
You are the love and the life
That we all need to see
Always willing to shine and then
Peace on this earth is the way
That it always can be

To be always with you
And you always with me

This is my autograph
Here in the songs that I sing
Here in my cry and my laugh
Here in the love that I bring

To be always with you
And you always with me

My Dear Sweet Joey

It's been twelve long years, since you've been gone,
I guess I'll never know,
The reason that God took you, and that you had to go!

We miss you oh so very much
I can't begin to say
And when I think of reasons why
They melt in yesterday

I miss your love,
I miss your face,
Each day I say the same,
Why do I ask, when I just know
There is no one to blame.

They say what's meant to be will be,
I'll wait until that day
That I will see you my sweet love,
Again like yesterday.

Love You Always and Forever,
Mommy

CAUSE: Accidental
SUBMITTED BY: Mom

As time goes by, (28 years of his passing this month), my thoughts and memories of my son Dennis are as vivid as if he were near me. He was at college when I received the news of Dennis' sudden death. The initial shock became a nightmare which is still difficult for me to conceive. He was my youngest son with so much potential, both in the medical and the musical field. His outstanding achievements were many and as a proud mother, I sometimes wonder how different life would have been with Dennis achieving the wonders of his dreams. I live each day with Dennis in mind and the wonderful memories of his short time on this earth. The wonderment of my having had the many experiences of joy (and tears) will always be embedded in my heart and soul. My prayers and my love for Dennis become stronger with each passing day. Miss you my darling angel.

Dear Cara,

I miss you so much. I am doing what I can to take care of the people you loved including myself. I think of you all the time. Sometimes I cry but that's okay Cara. You were and are worth any price.

I stole a few lines from the song, "Because You Loved Me" - (a song by Canadian singer Cline Dion from her twenty-first studio album Falling into You. Written by Diane Warren and produced by David Foster.)

Cara I chose these words because most of all I want you to always know grateful I am for you.

I'm grateful for each day you gave me
I was blessed because I was loved by you
My world is a better place because of you

Love You For Always. Mom

September 12 is one of the happiest days of my life. It's the day my sweet Christopher was born. He was so little and so precious. Little did I know I would only have him for 16 years. The most wonderful Years I could ever ask for. He was such a kind and gentle person to everyone he met. He quickly grew into a 316 lb 6'4 young man who had a promising career in football. Instead he's my guardian angel and Who still helps people everyday. He touched so many lives while he was here and still touching lives today. Happy Birthday my sweet son. You are forever in my heart and I will miss you till the day I die.

I wanted to say something Adam said to me. I have a very long driveway lined with shrubs on one side. I think I aggravated Adam when I would back out of the driveway. He would say, "Mom, use the mirrors". I remember him saying that everytime I backed out of the driveway.

SUBMITTED BY: Terrie (Joey's Mom)

Dear Joey,

One day you'll look upon this life
Which we didn't want to have
The love we shared has gone away
It's turned from good to bad.

We had so many good times
So many laughs and fun
Why would I think that it would fade
And will be left as one

I won't remember bad times
Just good times and your love
Why would God had given us
Something that was so bad

Don't look in sorrow, and
Don't think that all was wrong
If it wasn't for what we had
Each other wouldn't belong

We're happy as we both will be
One day when God says when
Let's put behind us, all bad things
In heaven to love again.

With All My Love for your 34th Birthday
And your 12th year without you here.

Love and Kisses, Mommy Always

Adam is my 'soul'. I had Adam when I was 19, so we grew up together. Adam was full of life! He made everyone around him laugh. He enjoyed life to the fullest, for being so young.

On Friday, Sept. 2, 1994, Adam and 3 of his friends were in Adam's car. Adam had picked them up from school, and was giving them a ride home. The semi-driver did not see Adam's car~ and ran right into it.

Adam and 2 of his friends, were killed instantly. His other friend, passed away while being life flighted to a Ft. Wayne, Ind. hospital trauma. It's been 17 yrs~ this Sept.~ since Adam passed into our Heavenly Father's arms... but a day doesn't go by, that I don't find myself stopping.. with a memory or a refection of Adam.

His younger brother will be getting married this October~ it will be a bittersweet day for me. All the things in life that Adam did not get the chance to do~ BUT knowing that he is safe~ loved~ and waiting for me, on the other side. We will be reunited One Sweet Day.

WRITTEN BY: Michelle Hall-Gagnon "Mommy"

My Darling Jake ,

Six years have gone by
and I don't know where to turn.
I don't know what to do.
Every thought....turns to you.
Sometimes I laugh , sometimes I cry.
You left too soon, too fast.

I think of you when I'm alone.
When I'm far away and when I'm home.
I think of you when I'm with friends.
Never in my mind does your memory end.

I think of you when I'm happy,
I think of you when I'm in tears....
I'll ALWAYS think of you now and through the years.

There are so many things that I don't understand,
but there is one thing I know for sure -
I will love you and miss you with every breath I take
every minute of every day for the rest of my life.

You were then....You are now....You always will be
Mommy's heart & soul....
My reason for being....
Mommy's "EVERYTHING" .

Until I can hold you in my arms again my precious lit'l one,
know that Mommy will live every moment carrying you with her.













SIGNS

IN MEMORY OF: Dylan Ross
AGE: 36 years
DATES: 11/22/1973 - 8/27/2010
CAUSE: Pulmonary embolism
SUBMITTED BY: Mom

Shortly after Dylan's last trip to Disney World with his family he told me the story of how they were standing on the bridge between Tomorrowland and Cinderella's Castle watching a mother duck swimming with her ducklings. Suddenly a hawk swooped down and snatched one of the ducklings and it was struggling and quacking and they were all very upset. While looking through their pictures after they got home there was the hawk sitting in a tree in one of the pictures apparently waiting to snatch the duckling. Last December my husband, granddaughter (Dylan's daughter), and I went to Disney World. One day we happened to stop on that same bridge and I said, "Maddie isn't this where y'all saw that hawk snatch that duckling?" As she was answering me saying that it was the same spot my husband said, "Look in that tree. There's a hawk sitting there now." Maddie said, "That's the exact tree the hawk we saw was sitting in!" At that moment all three of us KNEW Dylan was letting us know he was with us.

Happiness is seeing a butterfly flutter by.

Happiness is being with my dog,
Happiness is singing,
Happiness is praying,
Happiness is being in nature,
Happiness is love,
Happiness is life,
Happiness is the world,
Happiness is my dreams at night,
Happiness is friendship,
Happiness is my family,
Happiness is writing,
Happiness is happiness.













SPECIAL MEMORIES


IN MEMORY OF: Dustin Marshall Rawls
AGE: 24 years
DATES: BD -- Sept 2. 1982 and death Sept 27, 2007
CAUSE: Died in automobile accident/ drunk driver
SUBMITTED BY: Helen Wallace, Grandmother

Dustin was a special caring young man and the following letter shows an example of his caring.

This letter was copied from Dustin's website created by his mom. This letter was written by one of Dustin's friends:

Rawls Family,

You don't know me because I am sure that Dustin took my secret failures with him when he left, but I wanted you to know what he did for me. Dustin saved my life a few years ago. I would not be here but for him...if he had not been there that night with me in my hours of pure hellish darkness. I wish I could explain to you where I was that night but it is beyond words. I wish he could see where I am in my life and what he gave me the chance to become... My life is amazing because of him. You already know that he was great. There should be more people like him but we both know that there never will be. I am sorry for you and your family to have lost something so precious. I want you to know that since that day I have loved him from the bottom of my heart and would have done anything for him...he had only to ask. I have talked to him 7 times since that night and in all these years the only thing he ever wanted from me was for me to live...so that is what I did. I am married now and am truly happy and I hope he is happy with what he sees from Heaven. I know that with my past as ugly as it is I could never hope to end up where Dustin is but I can always hope that God will let me see him in passing...that would be enough for me. I did not send this to you to glorify myself and actually I would rather stay anonynous... I only wanted you to know how he changed my life or actually how he gave me my life back. I love him and my heart is broken but somehow I know that he would not want me to dwell on his death but to keep living a good life in honor of him and I will do just that... My son's middle name will be Dustin for the man who gave him this chance to live... to love... I hope that somewhere in my life I can help some one else the way Dustin helped me. I will aspire to be more like him. Please if you could tell me where he is buried I would like to go there to be with him one last time to say good-bye.

With All The Sorrow.

P.S. I thought you might like to know that our birthdays are only a few days apart and on my 16th birthday he came when on one else did and we exchanged presents and it didn't even matter to me that no one else wanted to come... he was the light guiding this broken heart. I will always feel a little lost without him.
