To our precious Anthony...
On a rainy Monday in August our world stopped turning.
For you decided that it was your time to go home.
We are left with such sadness and pain like we've never known before.
A part of us died that day with you.
Life will never be the same as it was before.
All we have now are the precious memories you've left behind,
that we'll treasure until the day that we're all together again.
Not a day will ever pass that we don't think of you
and wish we could turn back the clock and change it all.
We miss your beautiful smile so so very much.
We're so very sorry Ant that you really never knew just
how very special you were,are and always will be.
"MAY GOD BLESS YOU AND KEEP YOU UNTIL WE MEET AGAIN"
All of our love forever,
Dad, Jody, Jess, Ryan
You may have felt like the king,
that day when you got to dance
with the bride dear brother,
but because of that dance
I will forever feel like the queen.
So thank you Anthony for the dance.
I Love You,
One shade the more, one ray the less,
Had half impair'd the nameless grace
Which waves in every raven tress
Or softly lightens o'er her face,
Where thoughts serenely sweet express
How pure, how dear their dwelling-place.
And on that cheek and o'er that brow
So soft, so calm, yet eloquent,
The smiles that win, the tints that glow,
But tell of days in goodness spent,
A mind at peace with all below,
A heart whose love is innocent.
-- LORD GEORGE GORDON BYRON
It's been years since you went away, and John I miss you everyday.
To hear your voice, to see you smile, to sit and talk with you awhile.......
A million times for you I've cried, wishing that you hadn't died...
If I could have one wish my love, and know it would come true,
I'd telephone to heaven and ask to speak to you.
Loving & Missing you always,
