Condolence / Cindy Boyer (none, I'm hoping to share some comfort with you )

Dear Billy & Cheryl,  I'm very sorry to read of the tragic loss of your beloved son Billy, and I want to offer my sincere heartfelt sympathy to you and your family. I hope these Scriptures will bring you some comfort.                                                                                    Acts 24:15 promises, “that there is going to be a resurrection.” Many tragic, unexpected deaths are due to what the Bible calls, "time and unforeseen occurrence that befall them all." - Ecclesiastes 9:11b 

Our loving God doesn’t cause sad things to happen to our loved ones, as James 1:13 helps us to understand, ‘When under trial, let no one say: “I am being tried by God.’ For with evil things God cannot be tried nor does he himself try anyone.’”

2 Corinthians 1:3, 4 speaks of God as “the God of all comfort who comforts us in all our tribulation.” 1 Peter 5:7 lets us know that we can “throw all our anxiety upon (God), because he cares.” And Isaiah 65:17b tells us that the former things will not be called to mind, neither will they come up into the heart.” - Thus the heartbreak that we experience now, won’t even be remembered after Jehovah God resurrects our loved ones; thereby undoing the sad effects of death and the pain being separated from them brings.

Revelation 21:4 promises, “And (God) will wipe out every tear from their eyes, and death will be no more, neither will mourning nor outcry nor pain be anymore. The former things have passed away.” - Just imagine -a world with no tears of sorrow, no pain, and no death! 


Loved ones will be resurrected, and welcomed back to life by loving family and friends right here on the earth in the midst of peaceful, beautiful, paradise conditions, as Psalms 37:10, 11, 29 tell about, “And just a little while longer, and the wicked one will be no more; and you will certainly give attention to his place, and he will not be. But the meek ones themselves will possess the earth, and they will indeed find their exquisite delight in the abundance of peace. The righteous themselves will possess the earth, and they will reside forever upon it.” - We can have the opportunity to live together forever in perfect peace, health, and happiness with our loved ones!

Jesus gave us hope of a time when all suffering will end. He taught his followers to pray: “Our Father in the heavens, . . . Let your Kingdom come. Let your will take place, as in heaven, also upon earth.” - Matthew 6:9, 10 - When God’s Kingdom comes, there will be no more suffering or death on the earth, just as there is no suffering or death in heaven!

I hope that you will find comfort in your memories, perhaps by looking at pictures. And I hope that these and other verses will bring you comfort, peace, and hope. Romans 15:4 tells us, "For all the things that were written aforetime were written for our instruction, that through our endurance and through the comfort from the Scriptures we might have hope.

And will you please look at the web site, www.jw.org as it offers much comfort that is solidly based on God’s Word the Bible, and it shares what has helped others to cope with their grief. If you decide to look at the site, when on the web site, please click on publications at the top of the page, then under magazines on the left click on ‘magazines’ and in Display box to the right  where it says ‘latest‘; scroll to 2011 and click on search, and then please ‘scroll down 3 rows‘, and click on the 'PDF' format for "Coping With the Loss of a Loved One" found in the April Awake; and you’ll be able to open this magazine to read the article in its entirety. Three subjects are: "An Almost Unbearable Loss"  "Coming to Terms With Death" and "Help for Those Who Grieve" This is one of the most comforting magazines that I've read and I hope you will read this article and find some comfort in what has helped others to cope with their overwhelming losses. Currently, the article, "Why is there so much suffering? When will it end?" is on the main page of the web site. 

Take care,

                                                                   Sincerely Yours,

                                                                   Cindy Boyer

Homesick / Tiffany Reitz (Sister)
You're in a better place, I've heard a thousand times
And at least a thousand times I've rejoiced for you
But the reason why I'm broken, the reason why I cry
Is how long must I wait to be with you

I close my eyes and I see your face
If home's where my heart is then I'm out of place
Lord, won't you give me strength to make it through somehow
I've never been more homesick than now

Help me Lord cause I don't understand your ways
The reason why I wonder if I'll ever know
But, even if you showed me, the hurt would be the same
'Cause I'm still here so far away from home

I close my eyes and I see your face
If home's where my heart is then I'm out of place
Lord, won't you give me strength to make it through somehow
I've never been more homesick than now

In Christ, there are no goodbyes
And in Christ, there is no end
So I'll hold onto Jesus with all that I have

To see you again
To see you again
And I close my eyes and I see your face
If home's where my heart is then I'm out of place

Lord, won't you give me strength to make it through somehow
Won't you give me strength to make it through somehow
Won't you give me strength to make it through somehow
I've never been more homesick than now

This is for the most wonderful Son a man could ever want in Life. Even though You weren't  here far long enough It was for sure long enough for everyone who was related to you or knew you Those 17 years will give us a lifetime of smiles , laughs, and tears! I prefer to smile with your memories but sometimes things are just running together and crazy and little things will just set me off into another world where I am angry sad unhappy and so many other things I just want to blow up but then your Smile can bring me back And sometimes I can even smile with you. Ilove You Son

Thoughts for the day....  / Tiff (Sister)
My best friend Nicole made me a calender which she included many quotes.  All which I know she picked out from her heart just for me.  I thought I would share them with you all, because I really took them to heart.  Take a few minutes to really think about what they mean and maybe you will think a little differently about things.  
     ~With Love~

Nintendo / Tiffany (Sister)

I borrowed a Super Nintendo from a friend a few weeks ago and have really enjoyed playing it again.  It brought back so many memories of Billy Paul and I staying up all hours of the night trying to beat the game.  It is very exciting for me to play, because everything as far as the "hidden" items and secret ways of passing the levels all just come back to me.  I haven't played these games in so many years.  I know our favorite game to play was the Baseball one.  Also Super Mario World.  Billy Paul was always better at me in these games, but its not like I ever admitted that to him.  I just remember the Nintendo days as happy days I got to enjoy with Billy Paul.  I know we all miss him so much and wish he was here, but like Dad says we just got to keep the memories alive.  I love you all!  Keep your heads up!  Billy would want us to be handling things right and staying strong.

You know whoever stated that is so full of crud that they have never ever experiniced what our family has. And to have someone tell me it's time to move on is a big mistake on their part. I have seen what this has done and still doing to family and even Billy's friends  There is so many different ways that we are all grieving and trying to deal with it some good and some bad I wish we could take a pill and it would all be over.My memories even some not so happy keep me going that and Family. So lets all keep them alive and thrive to love and care for each other. I love you Son and you are always on my mind and heart evry waking moment. watch over us Bubba and keep us in line. Ilove you Tiffy and cheryl and everyone else including the others on this site. Billy Close

I am just like Tiffany in feelings about this song . The moment I heard it i cried until there were no more tears. It is like it was written with our Billy and His family in mind. Unfortunantely there are so many more families Iam sure who feel the same way so thank you song writer and Kenny Chesney for this wonderful song you have given us . Ilove you so much Tiffany.

Who You'd Be Today  / Tiffany (Sister)

You know how you have your songs that remind you of certain people?  Well I really relate to Kenny Chesney's "Who You'd Be Today".  I think about Billy all the time and wonder how things would be different with him here.  I know that he and I would be so close and I just think about how much I'm missing out on now and in the future.  My kids will know all about their Uncle Billy, but will never see for themselves how great he was.  I guess I have just been thinking so much about the future lately, because I want to make a happy life for myself.  I just wish Billy Paul would be here to share it with me.  

Who You'd Be Today

Sunny days seem to hurt the most.
I wear the pain like a heavy coat.
I feel you everwhere I go.
I see your smile. I see your face, 
I hear you laughin' in the rain.
I still can't believe you're gone.

It ain't fair: you died too young,
Like the story that had just begun, 
But death tore the pages all away.
God knows how I miss you,
All the hell I've been through,
Just knowin' no-one could take your place.
An' sometimes I wonder,
Who you'd be today?

Would you see the world?  Would you chase your dreams?
Settle down with a family,
I wonder what would you name your babies?
Some days the sky's so blue,
I feel like I can talk to you,
An' i know it might sound crazy.

It ain't fair: you died too young,
Like the story that had just begun,
But death tore the pages all away.
God knows how I miss you,
All the hell I've been trhough,
Just knowin' no-one could take your place.
An' sometimes I wonder,
Who you'd be today?

Today, today, today
Today, today, today

Sunny days seem to hurt the most.
I wear the pain like a heavy coat.
The only thing that gives me hope, 
Is I know I'll see you again some day.

Some day, some day, some day.
