Dad's Grief  / Jeri Majette~Mom To Son/Angel, Laquan~ (Memorial Friend )


DAD’S GRIEF

It must be very difficult
to be a man in grief
since men don't cry
and men are strong
no tears can bring relief

It must be very difficult to stand
up to the test,
and take calls and visitors
so she can get some rest.

They always ask if she's alright
and what she's going thru,
but seldom take his hand and say,
my friend how are you.

He hears her crying in the night,
and thinks his heart will break.
He dries her tears and comforts her, 
but stays strong for her sake.

It must be very difficult to start
each day anew.
And try to be so very brave for
HE LOST HIS BABY TOO.........

I send my heartfelt condolences
to the entire Smith Family.

You are in my thoughts and prayers.  I hope the killer of your Billy Paul rots in hell for what has been done to your precious son and to his loving family.  My heart is with you, my son RJ was murdered also, he had just turned 18.  I will keep you in my heart and prayers.  I pray justice is served.  Love and hugs to you.

DAD Please Listen To Me ~ Author Unknown  / Anonymous Friend Angel In Heaven (Flying thru to U )
DAD Please Listen To Me

DAD please listen to me
As I take time to write.
I see parents struggling daily.
Their pain is such a fight...

All of us who have gone
And left the rest of you behind…
We’re ok. DAD, I promise…
Heaven is beautiful, and God is kind.

You used to tell me that one day
God would call and take you home.
You told me you’d make me strong
So I would stand tall when alone.

But things happen sometimes, DAD
That does not go in our plans,
I wasn’t scared, DAD,
When God held out his hand.

I didn’t want to leave you.
I didn’t have time to say Good bye
When the angels said, "Come with us"
There wasn’t time to question why.

I’ve watched you daily, DAD.
It hurts to see you cry.
I don’t want you to be unhappy,
Just because we didn’t get to say Goodbye

Tell the others what I’m telling you,
So many parents need to know
That Earth was just a lay over
We had another place to go.

I know you miss me, DAD
I know your heart was broken in two.
But God really needed me
Because my earthly life was through.

I’m always alongside you…
I smile and touch your hair.
I whisper "DAD, I love you". You just can’t see me there.

I’m the one who gently touches you
On your shoulder when you’re sad
I’m Happy now that you finally found
God again, and are no longer mad.

Tell the parents, DAD, for me
That all of us kids are okay.
God had plans for our lives
When he called us home that day.

I love you, DAD, I always will
And remember I’m not far away.
We’re going to be together
When God calls out your name.

Remember that the angels work through synchronicity and that if we remain open, not closed, to all possibilities, we may receive their messages of insight, love, and hope through virtually any channel of earthly communication. All we have to do is keep on watching and listening.

Promises ~ State of Grace (Poem)  / Shaye Creamer (GP) ^i^ Mack's Mom~Love U. (Grieving With You! )

Promises~State of Grace


Child without a face


Suspended in a state of grace…


The scream, the anguish, the yell


The End will see them ALL beyond Hell…


To see them perish, to see them dead…


Electrocution, lethal injection, bullet in head?


The shaking, indecision, shudder as I wring my hands


In the end, morals and principles stand.


Our Father has taken the lead…


Gently caressed our hand.


Our children resting in his arms


We no longer have to seek, as


He Guides with Promises, no charms.


Like the rainbow after a rain..Promises


Vengeance, justice, & extraction..


His promises..faithful, true, everlasting..


Our respite from pain relieved..


Only because we believed..


Let go..anger, remorse, hate


Steadfastly driven..forgive..too late


As He takes over..promises..get even..


Evil..to perish..Ne’er to be Forgiven..

FATHER'S DAY REMEMBRANCE
Sometimes


Sometimes...
Dad is of the old school and taught that "men don't cry"
or "men don't show their emotions", or they might lose face.

Sometimes...
Dad is a "walk away joe", because he did not want to be a dad anymore,
or changed his mind about being a dad in the 1st place.

Sometimes...
Dad is taught to believe that if he shows any emotion,
he will be considered weak instead of strong.

Sometimes...
The pain & grief is so over-whelming that Dad sees maybe he was wrong.

Sometimes...
The heart cannot bear the stress & duress..
You lose your will, zeal, zest, and passion...

Sometimes...
When you lose your 1st son to heinous murder 13 years ago and
then lose your youngest son in the same fashion..

Sometimes...
You lose your mind...then your health...then your life...

Sometimes...
Dad is not strong enough for the struggle and strife.

Sometimes...
There are no words to speak..as some Dads are left speechless...

Dear Billy, ((Billy Paul)) ....  remember the joys and memories with your beautiful Son..he is at peace! Justice will be served...if not through the judicial system then through God...HE will NOT let this go unattended to...Just as he gets angry and creates a mess...HE IS ALSO REALLY GOOD AT CLEANING THEM UP....NO ONE HAS THE RIGHT TO TELL US HOW WE SHOULD GRIEVE~They do not live in my nightmare, my Hell, I will take as long as I need ...even if it means just talking to these Heaven bound children....They do talk to me...
I hear Mack on the phone.....that is all the #'s that come up 000-000-0000 on the ID or when you do a call back or just hear a part of a song in a cell call..your baby is communicating with you!!!  Mack brings his little "ethereal light being self" up in here before daylight clapping and laughing and lighting up my room..he says, "Mom you are so cool. You are so good.  " I C ? u do! " ~ this is how one of his messages came out...they do not come in words like we read...but in the sounds of..and letters   Mack travels (vibrates at a really high degree pitch~ but he always comes through ~ even visualizes. I feel when he rubs my arm & kisses my cheek and pats my hair.......I LOVE MY SON & MISS HIM SOOOOO MUCH!!!!     He is sooo smart and beautiful and really it doesn't matter who is at fault ....OUR children did NOT deserve this!!!! They were entitled to a long happy prosperous life....Now we have only echoes of laughter, traces of memories, and rembrances of joy of our precious boys to carry us through ...sometimes if you listen..in a crowd..YOU will Hear your Angel's voice...he is always Near you... For 3 days now he has been calling me...he is really excited!!!!!~ HE blows light bulbs when he gets excited or flashes the lights off and on....look at the deatils around you...your baby is there in the details...just like God is in the details...  Keeping you forever in my heart and prayers..I am hear for you anytime you need to talk..just drop a post in the email..it doesn't have to go throu the channels...I read but do not post that often..I looked for an answer to a prayer to help me thorugh my grief and found it in the GP..It is through the readings i have learned to come to a quasi acceptance of..he's not coming home... but I'm still sad...& grief stricken...I LOVE & MISS MY SON!!!!! Peace, hugs, prayers, Blessings.

As you know Billy I get so down when I think of You Son I have been avoiding coming here and I know I am wrong because this is a celebration of your life not about my grief. But Bubba it is there and I am trying to deal with it but sometimes my anger at the judical system and the jerk at the DAS office just keep it coming. But Son I will deal with it and we will prevail. It is in Gods Hands and He is the ultimate.Until Daddy comes to see you Son Always in My heart mind and soul.

To Angel Billy Paul - your story touched my heart.  Such a beautiful young man taken too soon by a coward.  Watch over your family  up in heaven and give them the strength to go on without you. 

I think you and Sammy would have had alot in common as there are alot of similarities in the kind of friend and son you were.

today is one of my bad days  / LaShae (cousin)
so for graduation my Aunt Rhonda gave me a journal. Probably something that means more to me than most anything. But anyways..this was my first entry in it..

this pain I hide inside of me...I hope that no one ever feels. But sadly I know they do. This pain I have so deep...that I hide from the world...except for my closest friends when I have a break down. This pain inside that I hide....eats me alive and no one can see. This pain I have inside made a whole in my heart. This pain I feel inside I dont think anyone can quite understand. Sometimes it disappears for awhile...it's always there but sometimes it fades back. Sometimes it takes me over. Somtimes I feel alone like no one understands...even though they do. I hide it from most people because I try to tell myself  I have come to peace with it...but deep inside...it DOES eat me alive. This pain inside of me is so strong that it pulls the tears from my eyes and makes them heavy and dark. It makes my tears keep coming even when I try to make them stop. This pain inside of me...shows when I get scared...or hurt. This pain inside of me...makes me weak when I want or have to be strong. This pain inside of me is so strong that sometimes I have to fall to the floor. This pain inside of me makes me feel like I'm missing something. This pain inside of me has made me a stronger person...but has made life real to me. Though I can talk about it...this pain inside of me is unbearable. This pain in me....comes out when things remind me of it. This pain in me will never leave. and I fear. may happen again. I could not handle it. This pain in me...makes me feel shameful. This pain in me...wont leave...I can't let it go. This pain in me...wont let me say my final goodbye. This pain in me...makes me physically hurt. This pain in me....will never be fixed. This pain in me...lives in other people too. This pain in me...makes me sit on the floor and stare at the wall until it goes away. This pain in me...makes me cry over something silly and pointless. This pain in me makes me worry constantly. Though I know this pain can get WAY worse....it's extremly bad. This pain in me...I hide from my family and most friends. This pain in me...hurts when someone calls me the wrong name. This pain in me...makes me not be able to drive by where it was. This pain in me...makes me do double takes when I see someone to remind me of him. This pain in me...hurts because...I forget what it was like when he was around...or forget his smile or  laugh. This pain....hurts. It's not a normal pain...it's...every emotion in one. I live my day to day in this pain and I'm slowly learning to cope with it...though some days are worse than others. Today is one of my bad days...where i have this HUGE knot in my throat...and tears feel my eyes. This pain...is my pain...that no one can change or make better. But God will heal me...in time.

Tiffany brought up about Billy sleeping with his head against the window while driving, and now I can't remember a trip when Billy didn't fall asleep. It makes me feel good because He must have felt safe. And I know He is safe now in Gods hands. I was also looking at his pics and noticed his hands looked like mine. Just in the way we held them. and everyone who knows us they where made to lay brick and to hold Babies. I love you Son. Daddy Close

She did it!!  / Aunt Nita (Aunt)
Billy.....your bobsey twin did it! LaShae graduated from High School. I cannot believe it. Just yesterday she was my baby girl running around, playing ball out in the back yard with you. You would be so proud of her. I know she, along with the rest of us, really missed you being there with our family as we celebrated her day. But I know you were sharing the celebration with Jesus, watching down on her. But there was an empty spot at our family get-together that will always be there and no one else can ever fill. We missed your sweet hugs. You were with every one of us in our hearts. Watch over her as she goes out in this world and makes plans for her future. As she goes to college and whatever else her future holds. She loves you and misses you so much, and so do I!! Close

Gone But Not Forgotten  / LaShae Henderson (Cousin)

GONE BUT NOT FORGOTTEN

You were so full of life,
Always smiling and carefree,
Life loved you being a part of it,
And I loved you being a part of me.

You could make anyone laugh,
If they were having a bad day,
No matter how sad I was,
You could take the hurt away.
Nothing could every stop you,
Or even make you fall,
You were ready to take on the world,
Ready to do it all.
But God decided he needed you,
So from this world you left,
But you took a piece of all of us,
Our hearts are what you kept.


Your seat is now empty,
And it's hard not to see your face,
But please always know this,
No one will ever take your place.

You left without a warning,
Not even saying good-bye,
And I can't seem to stop,
Asking the question why?
Nothing will ever be the same,
The halls are empty without your laughter,
But I know you're in Heaven,
Watching over us and looking after.
I didn't see this coming,
It hit me by surprise,
And when you left this world,
A small part of me died.
Your smile could brighten anyone's day,
No matter what they were going through,
And I know everyday for the rest of my life,
I'll be missing you.


-it would seem that losing you Billy would bring some of us to an understanding of so many things that has become obvious some haven't. we all make mistakes, right? but..isn't there an extent as to how far we fall into things? instead of honoring your memory..those who claim to miss you so much use that pain and put it into things that led you to where you are now..is that what they want? are you proud of that? i turned to so much after you died, but there came a point when i woke up and realized that the things i was doing weren't benefiting me AT ALL..so i'm wondering when others will realize that..I love you Billy, and I miss you more every day that you aren't able to be here with us.
