      Thank you for comments but I think you posted to the wrong site. This site is for family & friends that knew & loved my son, Gary. I don’t think you are either.

  • Will always love and miss you brother. I’m glad that you were at a happy point in your life though, I’m sad you were taken from it way too soon. Love you always.

    My handsome baby boy! I carried you for 9 months, I knew you before anyone else, I loved you too before anyone, others loved you but your mama loved you the longest. You are my heart & with you gone my heart is not just broken its been ripped out. I think of this life without your handsome face & that smug little smile & I can’t breathe. I want you bad in the worst way. I’ll always love you” big much” sweetheart. Thank you for the privilege of being your mom if only for a short time. I love you

    • Dear Ms. Beverly Frederick: My sincere sympathy in the loss of your son. My heart goes out to you in this sad time. To perhaps share some comfort, please know that our Creator is not indifferent to your suffering. He will soon bring a complete solution. You can read this, in the Bible, at Isaiah 25:8 and Revelation 21:3,4. It says, in part, that God will wipe away all of our tears and death will be no more. I am very sorry for your loss.

    Gary and I were brought together when he was only a boy. He jumped whole heartedly into whatever life had to offer; he had many dreams with many challenges. When life knocked him down he always got up and started over. I was proud of him.
    He was a good boy that grew into a good man. I’ll miss him and always keep him in a special place in my heart. One of the last things I said to him was I loved him and I always will.

      Shawn, Gary always spoke of you & Cody as brothers, brothers from another mother. He loved you both so very much. Thank you for being such good loving friends. I’ll always be so grateful he had you both in his life.

You are now your children’s and fiance’s gardian angel, but fly by me sometime and I’ll know you are near. I shall cherish our times together forever.

    We are connected, my child & I
    By an invisible cord not seen by the eye.
    Its not like the cord that connects us ’til birth.
    This cord can’t be seen by any on Earth.
    This cord does its work, right from the start
    It binds us together, attached to my heart.
    I know that it’s there, though no one can see
    The invisible cord from my child to me.
    The strength of this cord is hard to describe
    It can’t be destroyed, it can’t be denied.
    Its stronger than any cord man could create
    It withstands any tests, it can bear any weight.
    And though you are gone, you’re not here with me
    The cord is still there but no one can see.
    It pulls at my heart, I am bruised…I am sore
    But this cord is my lifeline like never before.

    My little brother Gary, my heart is aching that you are gone! As your big sister, I will not get the chance to tell you how much you meant to me or how much I loved you! I am sorry that I let too much time slip away since our last visit. I will forever regret that!! I will hold close within my heart all the time we spent together when you were’ just still a little boy. You were so sweet and so adorable and I was so proud to be your big sister!! Throughout the rest of my life I will always think of you ,and wait anxiously until I can see you again in Heaven! I love you, Dee

    To My Son on Your 30th Birthday:

    I love you to the moon & back
    And then way far beyond.
    Without you here to give me life
    My heart does not go on.
    For you, my child, were life to me,
    The song within my soul.
    Without you I am empty,
    A half that once was whole.
    No matter where you are, my child,
    Just know you’ll always be
    As close as my next heartbeat,
    For your heart resides in me.
    I’ll always be your mother,
    You’ll always be my child.
    For in my heart, I’ll keep your love,
    And we’ll never say good bye.

    I love & miss you so so very much my sweet boy.
    You are always in my heart, Mom.
