Memorial website in the memory of your loved one

Mary Had a Little Lamb

Mary had a little lamb, His fleece was white as snow.
And everywhere that Mary went, the Lamb was sure to go.
He followed her to school one day,
Twasn’t even in the rule. He made the children laugh and play to have a Lamb at school.
And then the rules all changed one day illegal it became; To bring the Lamb of God to school,
or even speak his Name.
Every day got worse and worse, And days turned into years.
Instead of hearing children laugh, we heard gun shots and tears.
What must we do to stop the crime, that’s in our world today?
Let’s let the Lamb come back to school, and teach our kids to pray.
Love to you all 
MAMA LOVE'S YOU MY BABY R.I.P BUCKET I HOPE,PRAY THAT YOUR SAFE WITH GOD,KNOW THAT MAMA WILL ALWAY'S LOVE YOU!

     I'm Free  

Don't grieve for me, for now I'm free!
I'm following the path God laid for me.
I took His hand when I heard him call,
I turned my back and left it all.
I could not stay another day,
To laugh, to love, to work or play.
Tasks left undone, must stay that way,
I found peace at close of day.
f my parting has left a void,
Then fill it with remembered joy!
A love shared, a laugh, a kiss,
Ah yes! These things I too will miss.
Be not burdened with times of sorrow,
I wish you the sunshine of tomorrow.
My life's been full, I've savored much
Good friends, good times, a loved one's touch. 
Perhaps my time seemed all too brief,
Don't lengthen it now with undue grief.
Lift up your heart and share with me,
God wanted me now, he set me free.


























Cedric {Bucket} & niece Chante'  




Bucket we were always there for each other.  I miss your beautiful smile and the way you would look at me with them big, beautiful eyes.  I miss your kind, compassionate heart.  The love I felt from you and the way you would make me smile but I still have that smile when I think about you and the fun we had.  Bucket you were and will always be my sunshine.  Bucket you were the only one who could say something to make me really, really smile. You were my best friend, my only son, my baby boy.  I will never forget the good person you were or the good times we shared. I think about you all the time.  You know, Bucket, I always talk on the phone with friends and they are always talking about the bad things their sons are doing to them and I would say not my son.  I thank God for the best 20 years of my life.  God gave me a son that never forgot my B-day, Mother's Day or Valentine's Day. You know, Bucket, I really can't think of a holiday you forgot about me. You always told me how much you love me and Chantel. Today I saw your face & you were smiling at me. Oh how good & happy I felt. Thank you my only son for your love and understanding. You are & will alway be the best.









R.I.P. MY BABY.  I LOVE YOU & MISS YOU SO MUCH & ALWAYS 
WILL.  I WILL NEVER EVER FORGET ABOUT YOU BUCKET.  HOW I 
CAN'T BELIEVE YOUR GONE.

LOVE ALWAYS, YOUR MOTHER











 

(Although I'm missing you)
I'll find a way to get through 
Living without you
'Cause you were my son, my strength, and my pride
Only God may know why, still I will get by
I would've known, that you had to go
But so suddenly, so bad
How could it be, not a straight memory worthy of
All that we had made
Now that you're gone, every day I go on 
But life's just not the same (life's just not the same)
I'm so empty inside, and my tears I can't hide
But I'll try, I'll try to face the pain 
Oh, there was so many things
That we could have shared, uh-huh
And time was on our side (time was on our side)
Ooh, yeah
Now that you're gone, I can still feel you near
So I'll smile, with every tear I cry
How sweet, were the losses to spare?
But I'll wait for the day
When I'll see you again, see you again, yeah

I'm missing you

dear terry, i went to the memory board today and saw Buckets picture. i also went to his web site and looked at all of the other photos and things about him. what a beautiful young man. you must be so proud. it made me cry looking at all of his pictures. i am not sure why. i guess i was just feeling your pain. maybe reliving mine. i dont know. i am glad that there was a picture of you on there. you are just as beautiful as him. so are your girls. you dont look old enough to be his mom. it helped me to see who i have been talking to and praying for. i will also keep the girls in my prayers. bless your heart. i am so glad that my words and prayers are helping you! i have walked in your shoes and i know how horrible life seems right now. i promise you that the pain will ease in time. you will not always feel hopeless and desperate to die. i promise. hang in there. you have the strength to do this!!!! you might want to consider keeping a journal of your thoughts. it really does help. i know you said that spelling is not your strong point but the journal only has to be for you to read so you dont need to worry about spelling or grammar. it really helped me. let 
me pray with you right now- immagine me holding your hand-dear lord, o loving and caring father, please lift up your child terry and carry her through this seemingly impossible time as she is greiving the loss of her precious son cedric. we know that he is with you and is in your loving arms. we mourn not because he is with you but because we are here on earth and miss him. please help ease the pain in terry's heart so that she can comfort her other two children who are also in pain. please help terry to eventually find some peace and happiness again because right now nothing seems okay without her beautiful son. bless her whole family as this death is so new and raw. thank you lord for giving terry what short time she had with her son and for all the joy he brought to her. help her to remeber the joy and how blessed she is to have experienced such love. we trust you o lord to be our guide when we are to consumed with greif to guide ourselves. we know you understand our pain lord, for you too had your son murdered. bless and keep this precious child of yours. in jesus name we pray, amen. p.s.weird coincidence maybe, but my best childhood friend had a nickname for me "buckethead". love michele


"WHAT YOU MAY NOT KNOW ABOUT MY MAMA"  
My Mama Terry is a survivor, or so I've heard it said. But I can hear her crying at night when all others are in bed. I watch her lay awake at night and go to hold her hand. She doesn't know I'm with her to help her understand. But like the sands on the beach that never wash away... I watch over my surviving mom, who thinks of me each day. She wears a smile for others... a smile of disguise! But through Heaven's door I see tears flowing from her eyes. My mom tries to cope with death to keep my memory alive. But anyone who knows her knows it is her way to survive. As I watch over my surviving mom through Heaven's open door... I try to tell her that angels protect me forevermore. I know that doesn't help her... or ease the burden she bears. So if you get a chance, go visit her... and show her that you care. For no matter what she says... no matter what she feels. My surviving mom has a broken heart that time won't ever heal.

"A mother holds her children's hands for a little while but she holds their hearts forever" I love you mama
2 mama  

He Only Took My Hand
Last night while I was trying to sleep,
My son Cedric voice I did hear.
I opened my eyes and looked around
But he did not appear.
He said, "Mama you've got to listen,
You've got to understand,
God didn't take me from you, Mama,
He only took my hand.
When I called out in pain that day,
The instant that I died,
He reached down and took my hand,
And pulled me to His side.
He pulled me up and saved me
From the misery and pain.
My body was hurt so badly inside,
I could never be the same.
My search is really over now,
I've found happiness within.
All the answers to my empty dreams
And all that might have been.
I love you so and miss you so,
And I'll always be nearby.
My body's gone forever,
But my spirit will never die!
And so, you must go on now,
Live one day at a time.
Just understand-
God did not take me from you,
He only took my hand."
I love you mama and the good times we had and I know you miss,
love me 2 but we will meet again when God calls your name... I love u 




God knows I want to hold you,
See you, touch you
And maybe there's a heaven
And someday I will again
Please know you are not forgotten until then
In my heart you live on
Always there never gone 
you left too soon
Tho' it may be true that we're apart
You will live forever... in my heart

AMEN!! LOVE YOUR MOTHER TERRY JOHNSON BROWN




A woman has strengths that amaze me...

She can handle trouble and carry heavy burdens
She holds happiness, love & opinions
She smiles when she feels like screaming
She sings when she feels like crying
She cries when she's happy, and laughs when shes afraid, and her love is unconditional.
There's only one thing wrong with her, she forgets what she’s worth!"
