You are always in our hearts and memories. Yesterday we had a great time with the family and like usual you were part of our conversation. I wish you could be here to see Bella turn into a beautiful young lady. She reminds me of you each time she laughes, makes a silly face and when she jokes around. I can see how my sister misses you and I wish you could of had more time on earth. But for whatever reason, God decided to take you home. I know we will get to see you again somedan. It will soon be 10 years since u were taken but it still feels like it was yesterday.

Zak,
This is crazy! It's about to be TEN years since you were taken from us. I still miss you everyday. We all are getting grey hairs, wrinkles, and back pains. You, my friend will always be 29........ I hate that you are not here and can share with us your stories in that animated way you told them. I am blessed to have known you so well. Till then.

I never met Isaac, in fact I was only in the academy when he was taken.

Somehow, someway, he inspired me and my fellow graduates. I think of you all often, pray for you, and hope you know that he is watching over all of you everyday. Isaac has touched and inspired people that he never met, who work in a far away place, and through that I hope you all know that his legacy lives on and many of us still have you all in our hearts.

May God bless you all.

Last month I was given an assignment in my college class about an End of Watch Officer. Before the professor even explained the details I knew I was going to speak about you. I still remember the night I saw your story on the news. Your picture always stuck with me. I am honored to have been able to speak to the class about your life and career.
You're not forgotten.

I imagine all of the time what it would be like if you were here. I can see you playing with the kids, coaching Isabella, and making them all laugh. Isabella is so beautiful. She makes some of the same facial expressions as you. I think about you everyday and I miss you so much. I can't wait to see you again some day.

Regina

I miss you every minute of every day. I have to catch myself sometimes when I laugh hard, because the pain I feel wants to be released too. Who knew pain and joy could be felt in the same second. I love you.

Dearest Son:
Happy Birthday!
I love you and I miss you.
I remember the day you were born. It was such a glorious day for us. When we were leaving the hospital the staff said we couldn't take you until we paid our bill for being there. Our doctor said, "Ridiculous, they can't hold your baby for ransom." He talked to the staff and they let us take you home. Regina was home waiting for us. That was the beginning of our happy family. When Renata and Isabella joined our family our happiness doubled and then tripled. We were so happy. I miss being that happy. Regina has a new family and they make me happy. But now I'm sad too because you're not here. Thank God for the time we shared together, and thank you for your unconditional love.

Love, Mom

~~~When Tomorrow Starts Without Me~~~

When tomorrow starts without me, and I'm not there to see; If the sun should rise and find your eyes all filled with tears for me; I wish so much you wouldn't cry the way you did today, while thinking of the many things we didn't get to say. I know how much you love me, as much as I love you, and each time you think of me I know you'll miss me too; But when tomorrow starts without me, try to understand, that an angel came and called my name and took me by the hand, and said my place was ready in Heaven far above, and that I'd have to leave behind all those I dearly love. But as I turned to walk away, a tear fell from my eye, for all my life, I'd always thought I didn't want to die. I had so much to live for and so much yet to do, it seemed almost impossible that I was leaving you. I thought of all the yesterdays, the good ones and the bad, I thought of all the love we shared and all the fun we had. If I could relive yesterday, I thought, just for a while, I'd say good-bye and kiss you and maybe see you smile. But then I fully realized that this could never be, for emptiness and memories would take the place of me. And when I thought of worldly things I'd miss come tomorrow, I thought of you, and when I did, my heart was filled with sorrow. But when I walked through Heaven's gates, I felt so much at home. When God looked down and smiled at me, From His great golden throne, He said, "This is eternity and all I've promised you. Today for life on earth is past but here it starts anew. I promise no tomorrow, but today will always last, and since each day's the same day, there's no longing for the past. But you have been so faithful, so trusting and so true. Though there were times you did some things you knew you shouldn't do. But you have been forgiven and now at last you're free, so won't you take my hand and share my life with me?" So when tomorrow starts without me, don't think we're far apart, for every time you think of me, I'm right there in your heart.

You my Son
Have shown me God
Your kiss upon my cheek
Has made me feel the gentle touch
Of HIm who leads us on....

Thinking of you and your family.

We thought of you with love today,
But that is nothing new.
We thought about you yesterday.
And days before that too.
We think of you in silence.
We often speak your name.
Now all we have is memories.
And your picture in a frame.
Your memory is our keepsake.
With which we’ll never part.
God has you in his keeping.
We have you in our heart.
