My prayers still goes out to your wife and children as they always will. I will see you again Brother, until then..........Look over us all.....

Treva...my heart aches for your sadness...I will forever remember your Stanley, he passed on my birthday...It has been 14 months since we lost our Drew...I want you to know that is does get easier...maybe not better, but easier...the tears will flow less often, although the simpliest things can make you loose it...the one year anniversary of Drew's death brought a new feeling...I know he will always be with us, just not here to see, touch or hear...and Stanley will always be with you as well...I look forward to seeing you this week as we prepare to honor our husbands and all the other's who loved their job, loved their family and moved on to another place....We will never forget them...never...much love, Chrissy Henley

Stanley, My heart continues to ache for you and I know it always will. Not a moment goes by that I'm not thinking of you or reminded of you. Reagan talks about how much she misses you and wishes you were still here. Ryan cries for you too. We all do. I miss spending time with you and you making me laugh. Watching David Chapelle is not the same without you being here to imitate him. Everyday I wish I could hold you in my arms again and tell you how much I love you. You will always be the love of my life. I will forever cherish our short time together and I thank God for it. I thank God for blessing us with 2 wonderful children that are like you in so many ways. I wish you could be here to see how Ryan is growing. I know he misses you being with him at the barber shop. He loves to watch the fast cars and motorcycles. I wonder where he got that from. He also has your love for music. Reagan is learning to play the piano now and she is singing in the choir. I know you would be so proud of them. We weren't ready for you to leave us yet, not that we would have ever been. I know you are watching over us and still protecting us in your own way. I'm trying to keep the lawn green for you and I listen to your cds sometimes just for you. I miss you so much that it hurts. I know we will see you again one day in Heaven. I can't wait. I pray at night that I will dream about you just feel like I am with you again. It's not the same but it is the best I can get right now. The bad part is waking up and realizing that you are not by my side. Know that you are truly loved and missed. Hugs and kisses. Always in my heart, Love always, Treva

Original Scottish Version
Lay me doon in the caul caul groon
Whaur afore monie mair huv gaun
Lay me doon in the caul caul groon
Whaur afore monie mair huv gaun

When they come a wull staun ma groon
Staun ma groon al nae be afraid

Thoughts awe hame tak awa ma fear
Sweat an bluid hide ma veil awe tears

Ains a year say a prayer faur me
Close yir een an remember me

Nair mair shall a see the sun
For a fell tae a criminals gun

Lay me doon in the caul caul groon
Whaur afore monie mair huv gaun

Lay me doon in the caul caul groon
Whaur afore monie mair huv gaun

Whaur afore monie mair huv gaun


English Translation
Lay me down in the cold cold ground
Where before many more have gone
Lay me down in the cold cold ground
Where before many more have gone

When they come I will stand my ground
Stand my ground I’ll not be afraid

Thoughts of home take away my fear
Sweat and blood hide my veil of tears

Once a year say a prayer for me
Close your eyes and remember me

Never more shall I see the sun
For I fell to a criminals gun

Lay me down in the cold cold ground
Where before many more have gone
Lay me down in the cold cold ground
Where before many more have gone

Where before many more have gone
