Comments: When I read the comments, I can't imagine the greif you must have suffered when you learned of your son's death. My heart truly goes out to you and your family, and from first hand experience with death at an early age - I was 5 when my dad died - I was truly moved by your obvious love and compassion for him. We never really know why loved ones are taken from us in such an untimely manner, but reflect on the times that you did have with him, knowing that all your efforts resulted in a fine outstanding young man.

Comments: For Ryans Mom,
I am so sorry to read about your lovely son Ryan. In every word you write, I can feel how very much you loved him. I lost my son Josh this year. He was only 21 as well, and died in January too. I like to think that perhaps all of these beautiful kids who died too young, have all met and are friends in heaven. These will be my first holidays without Josh. I'm not sure that I am going to make it. God bless you..you have a beautiful son and lovely grandchildren.

Love and prayers,
Kelly

Comments: Hi I am so sorry for your lost. I have 4 beautiful girls and thankfully God has allowed me to keep them with me. I asked God once why he took kids home to be with Him. I felt that they were being robbed of life. His answer was full of love and wisdom. He said that their life didn't end but was just beginning. Also, He said that through their death others will cherish life more. I know that will not ease your pain or fill the void you surely feel, but know that they are still serving God, and that you will one day embrace them again. May God cause His love to rain upon each of you. Rex

Don't give up. GOD told me even the sniper(s) need forgiving.
I had an overwhelming feeling of spiritual conviction while writing (angry things) about them.

I was so upset when he passed away. I look forward to seeing him when it is my turn to move upstairs. I love you ryan, I'll see you when my time comes. I'm 17 now and I remember his funeral like it was yesterday. I miss him so much.

Comments:
I was looking up speech delay in toddlers to mysurprise I came to your most inspiring page. I am the grandma of Baby Alex Rego who died on April 30, 1995 at the age of 26 mos old from a 6 mos. battle with acute mylegoneous leukemia and also his brother Andrew Rego who was tragically killed on a school sponsored ski trip to Ragged Mtn.in New Hampshire on March 2,2000. My daughter and husband have lost two children and I thank God each day for giving them strength each day to be able to function, smile and take care of their 3 yr.old.As a grandparent who was so close to my grandsons it is very sad for me.Grandparents grief is doubled because our children no matter what age are our babies forever and when their hearts are in so much pain we hurt so much for them and we have lost also. It will never be the same as loosing our child because there is nothing worst in the world for a parent to loose a child, let alone two children. They are in a better place and not until our journey on this earth is complete and we meet again in Heaven will we know the answer WHY
I want to thank you for the inforn=mation re: siblings. When Andrew died in 2002, his baby brother Nick, was 20 mos. old. The pediatrcian told his parents that he wouldn"t need counseling because he was too young and he would just forget about his brother. That statement proved so untrue. Nick started having aggressiveness. My daughter attributed this behavior to the terrible two"s Last Sept. he went to poroject grow and the teachers just loved him. He was always smiling had a great personality etc.
after 3 weeks he started to hit some of the children especially if they were singing or playing with a toy he wanted. Then he didn't want to go to school. The teachers said tat he would get real angry all of a sudden and hit another toddler. They were observing him and told my daughter to take him to a therapist. They, the teachers, know my daughter very well and they thought it might have something to do with his issues re the loss of a sibling My daughters mind started running with all kinds of obsessive thoughts, does he have add, is it a form of autism, is he going to be a violent person when he grows up.....never could she understand that he was affected by grief....
i read many articles and I would tell her things he would say to me about his brother, she just didn't get it. I really believe that she thought okay we had a beautiful baby come down with the worst kind of leukemia and he died such a painful death. Then our 12 yr. old gets killed instantly on the ski slope, now this one must have emotional problems.
Well, finally they took Nick out of school he"s in therapy and he does not have emotional problems....he is going through the pains of grief and being so young his pain came out in anger, not wanting to share and fear.But thank God he is 90% better today and mommy and daddy are expecting their 4th child anyday. This was not a planned pregnancy his is Jesus giving back. Nick will have a baby brother or sister again.
Another miracle, thank you Jesus !
For all the parents whose children have gone to Heaven I pray for you all that you will have strength, comfort and peace in you hearts.

I am the mother of 3 children and grandma of twin baby girls. I do not know the loss of a child, but i do know that it must be the most unbearable thing a parent could possible live thru. My prayers are with you and all your families. Be sure to know that they are in heaven with God and looking down on you, and they are with you each and every moment of the days to come. God Bless you all.

I first would like to thank you for having a place to add my angel (David) I feel your pain; A pain that will never go away. I belong to a small group of grieving Mom's. (Circles of Memories) Don't know how I would get thru day to day without them & GOD. Some have added their Angels to your site. "There IS NO GREATER PAIN"
God wrote David's name in the Book of Life, As HE closed the book; THE ANGEL'S said "Too special for this life." As I WILL SEE MY DAVID AGAIN, So will you be reunited with your Angel's!! Again, Thanks for such a beautiful page. Wish you didn't have to make it. My prayers & thoughts are with you. May GOD give you peace!! pat

I just found your page by coincidence when I was surfing through the net It is really great website, it has great impact to me I could not resist my tears when I read your poems and tributes that you dedicated for your son and nephew, there is nothing bad in this world than losing our beloved, I would send my sympathy to you and May Allah reward you for your sacrificing, and you must know Allah always loves his people and he does not give them any burden they can not handle, as you are Christian and I am a Muslim and both of us believe in God we must believe the destiny and accept the fate as it is, accept my solace and may God bless you and your family

I understand your pain for I too have lost my 21 year old son in a automobile accident Oct. 4, 1998 on a foggy Sunday morning. He had just came home for a long weekend from the Marine Corps.
As I read what you wrote, you almost discribed Bobby's life. Isn't it amazing how our earthly angels lived their lives to the fullest and enjoyed each moment like it would be their last and touched so many people along their paths.
I pray that you and your family have peace and joy when you think of them. And remember, God never makes mistakes. He's always in control.

Comments: I am so very sorry that you have such a tragic loss to deal with along with your health problems. How very tragic. My 4month old niece was killed by her abusive father in 1980. He served 3 days in jail after being found guilty of 1st degree murder. I never met her as we were seperated by 3000 miles but she was supposed to be mine and maybe that might have saved her but things happen for a reason we don't often understand. A few years later the same sister who lost her daughter to her abusive boyfriend was dating a another man that killed 3 children in a hit and run accident while drunk. He has no recollection of the accident but *came to* several miles a way in a wrecked car. The police found hiom and his car was found to be the vehicle in question and he sereved many many years in prison. Thankfully my sister was not with him. I know it sounds terrible but he was such a good man who was extremely kind who made a tragic tragic mistake of drinking and driving.

Comments: My 11 years old, only son died very recently through a very mysterious accident and I am now undergoing this painful process of grieving. I'm looking for people who can understand the pain that I am going through now. I don't know how can I move on for it is very true that I terribly miss him and I cannot live the same way I live before because I dont see anything beautiful now. Luckily I found your web site and knowing that there are people who experienced what I am going through now will hopefully help me to move on.

Thank you.

I just wanted to take this time to let you know that all the angels in our skyland are watching, protecting and loveing all of us down here in every way shape and form, as you probably already know. When something like this happens it's hard to come to terms and when you do, your still not complete and i think that it just makes you stronger.

Comments: Dear Ryan,
       Today is our daughters 5th birthday and I wish so
much you were here for it.  You have been on my mind so
much lately.  Remembering all things of so many that I will
never ever forget.  I remember how jealous Zane was when
Mazey was born...he did not want your mom to even touch
her.  And how Shelly stayed every minute of the day to help
me with Mazey when we came home from the hospital.  And
most of all I remember the look on your face when we were
waiting for our little girl to be born.  Ryan, I love you
so much.....I did not know what I had.  You were the best
daddy to our children...and they will always know that. 
They are so beautiful.  And your mom and dad are so good to
them.  Please know that you made me so happy without even
knowing it. Just the little things.  I love you...melissa

Comments: Scotty,

It has been three years now since you have left us. It doesn't seem like it could possibly be that long. I wish you were here to meet my daughter Morgan. I know how much you loved kids. You would have loved her. I keep in touch with your family. They are doing okay, but you can see the grief all over their face everyday of their lives. Taylor and Baby Scott really help them out. THey are so precious. I went up to your grave for the first time in a year. It has been very hard for me. Every since I became a mother your death has affected me in a different way. I grieve for you as my friend and always will but I can't imagine how I would feel to grieve for you as my son. I feel for your parents so much. I can't even imagine how they must feel. We all love you and miss you so much. You would think that time would heal the pain, but it still hurts so much. SOmethimes it doesn't seem like reality. I just want you to know that no matter how much times passes you will always be in my heart and my thoughts.
I miss you Scott

Love you always Corrie

I have a son and a daughter, they are my "everything", I can't imagine my life without them. As a mother, I know that your lost must have been the hardest thing you have ever experienced and my heart goes out to you and your family, I know that someday you'll see your son/nephew again, they are together now, in a special place, watching over you. God has special plans for people, and I'm sure he needed those two special boys in heaven.
I hope that with time you'll be able to carry on with your life knowing that someday you will see them again in a place where there's no pain, sadness, sickness, etc.
GOD will help you thru!
GOD BLESS YOU!!!

Comments: I was so touched by your memorial to your son and nephew. I know your pain because I too lost a son about the same age as your Scotty. This is the hardest thing I have ever had to go through in my life but I know that my Father in Heaven reached down and gave me the comfort of his Spirit when Ruly died and has been there for me so many times since then. I learned that faith and trust in my Heavenly Father was the most important element in healing from this grief. I don't understand all of the reasons why my son was taken away when he was, but I have perfect faith that it was for a purpose that only my Father in Heaven knew and understood and this gave me the joy that can only come through knowing and understanding this. I pray that you and all of those who have lost loved ones and are grieving so terribley will be comforted in the same way that I was. I loved my Son beyond measure and I know without a doubt that I will be with him again and we will rejoice and understand why then. May our Father in Heaven bless you and your dear loved ones also. May he bring you the comfort and peace that can only come through Him. With deep empathy and love.

Comments: What a lovely site. I really liked the information I found on Children and Grief. I have lost four children, two
before birth and two after. I have had to explain the last loss in April of this year not only to my 12 year
old son but to his three year old sister. It is hard to explain to her where her "Buddy" is. When we go to the
gravesite she says he is down in heaven with her two sisters. When it is lightning up above she says her "Buddy" is playing with
God's flashlight. What a wonderful way to see things...wish I was a child again.
I want you to know I understand some of your pain and if you need a friend I'm here.

Your site has touched my heart so deeply.
Please accept this gift from Allison's Heart in memory of your child.

Keep My Memory


Keep my memory with you,

For memories never die;

I will be there with you,

When you look across the sky.

I will be there in the clouds,

In the birds that fill the air;

In the beauty of a fragrant rose,

You will find my memory there.

You will feel me in the tenderness,

Of a tiny baby's touch;

You will hear me if you listen,

In the twilight's gentle hush.

When your hearts are heavy,

And you feel that you are alone;

Just reach down deep inside of you,

For your heart is now my home.

I will always be with you,

I will never go away;

For I will live on in your hearts,

Forever and a day.

I have a memororial for my Mom and my friend on this web site. I want to thank you for creating this site, I often visit.

As I read your memorial page I can feel your pain of losing a son. I have a son and two daughters and I know the love a mother has for her children. To lose a son or daughter has to be devastating! To lose a loved one is so hard! I cry with you.

I lost my Mom, two aunts, two uncles, a very close friend- Cindy Wagner, my father-in-law, my brother-in-law, and two other friends in about a year's time. I am not over all the grief yet. It is very difficult and I still cry and mourn because I miss my loved ones!

God bless you Nancy and you are in my prayers. I ask the Lord to give you peace, comfort and strength.

In Christ's Love,
Judy

He was in the 101st infantry better known as the Big Red One. Ralph apparently never got over all he saw there. He was always my big brother, being 15 yrs older. I only wish that I had reached out to him more often. But I was there for him when I think he most needed it. It just hurts so bad.

Comments: My name is Debbie,I two lost a loved one a husband and father to my kids.He and his brother were killed in a traffic accident.
My life has been a roller coaster many ups and downs.
Life has been difficult but I can do it I've had to for not only me but my kids.
I've moved away from his family,this hurt them much but it was hard living in my old home.I even met someone who truly cares about me and the kids,but his family dislikes him.
Why??? Well a transport truck killed my husband and my new boyfriend happens to drive one.I never even asked him what he did for a living when I first met him,it didn't matter to me.All that was important was that he cared for me and the kids.
Death hurts it causes alot of pain.I wish I could take their pain away.
Why is it so difficult to accept when someone wants to go on with life??My lates family always says your like a sister/daughter but now that someone else is in my life it changes???
Theres so much more hidden behind my husbands death(Booze,drugs)I knew all this even his siblings did but not his mom&dad.
I had to hid my pain not giving myself time to grieve because I was asked to think of others and their suffering.
Why are people sometimes selfish when it comes to death??The family is angry at me for picking up and moving away because they feel I need to continue to grieve in pain.His family still suffers greatly,why can't they accept that I am too.Just because I moved on with life dosen't mean I don't grieve.Life doesn't stop when theres been a death.
My mother in law wrote a letter to me stating I'll see whats fair??? This comment confused me.
his family was always alittle strange but I loved them all.They seem more concerned with MONEY$$$$.
I received a large amount of compensation thru insurance.It paid off all the debts even to his family which they wanted right away.I considered this money Blood Money.
My kids are well taken care of its what he would of wanted,but his brothers daughter received a smaller amount and the family is upset over that.
I almost wished his mom was beneficery to the estate that way all members would be compensated.Its like their hands are out waiting for money$$$$.
No one benefits from death.Its a pain that hurts crushing the soul.
I cried when I read your letter it sounded just like me always thinking of others before yourself.I was brought up that way,always think of others first,its better to give the receive...
I've learned to live with him gone constant reminders of him are with me daily(his kids).I will always remember him and his brother even though I've chosen to continue with life.His family have put their lives on hold.They continue to mourn and always will,they are hurt that my mourning has past.I will grieve as its said it will be my companion forever.
I loved him and always will.
My new life has brought me happiness,I will never forget my past even though its behind me but its the future that lies ahead.I have chosen my path and I know someday it will lead me to him.
Debbie
God bless you

Comments: I wanted to thank-you for the beautiful memorial you created for my son, Stephen M. Tosh and to let you know that I wanted to create some others, so I
followed your page and was interested in your angels. Your story really touches my heart, because besides Steve,
I also lost a baby to SIDS when she was 7 days old. When you experience something like that you feel like you can never do it again and you hope and pray you won't have to.
And I thought there was no pain as great as having to select that small pink coffin and watch that small body be buried when every fiber of my body was screaming to pick her up and warm her little body and bring life once again to it.
But then the morning came when they came to tell me about Steve. We had spent years apart because he had lived with my parents, so we had only been back together for a few years.
I won't tell you he was a saint, because he wasn't. And that boy-man could make me angrier then any human being on earth has ever been able to. We were so much alike that I often
knew what he was thinking. He never got into big trouble, but he kept me hopping in high school. Then he married a little red-haired girl and immediately gave me a grand=daughter. Then 2 yrs. later he
gave me another. He never really got to know her and then he was gone. After burying both my parents within the last four years, I had to oversee his arrangements. I didn't know if I could go on
but somewhere I found the strength to hold up for his wife and the babies.
No, the grief never goes away. You do feel it forever, but after a while, it hurts less and you begin to remember the good times that you had together and the reasons that are so dear to you. And if you have your faith you lean on that very strongly. If I didn't
believe he was in a better place, I couldn't go on. But Steve was always a fan of science fiction, and I picture Heaven as a real paradise for hem and my little girl, and my parents, and my Husband who passed away a year later.
So I am not writing this to re-open your grief but to let you know that others do understand sometimes and to tell you that there is light at the end of the tunnel
Sincerely,
gtosh@bellsouth.net

It doesn't seem to get better with time for me and from your

Comments: I would like to tell both families that I am thinking about them today. I know how hard it is on a day like this. It just seems like yesterday that Scotty and I were in Jr. High together. Me the nagging 6th grader with all the older kids. I want Jim, Sandy, and Kim to know how lucky I feel to have had Scotty in my life. I still think of him everyday. He was there for me when ever I needed someone. I know Scotty and my brother are looking out for me and my family. I also have reason to believe Scotty and Ryan are doing the same for their family and friends. I can't wait until the day I will be together with my two best friends again. To this day, I still consider my brother and Scotty my best friends and no one can ever replace them.
I LOVE YOU SCOTTY!
My prayers are with both families,
Erin

The day after my wedding, about a year and 1/2 ago, my cousin's mother died. She was three at the time. I am just curious about how to help her deal with such a great loss, being that her father was never involved. Your website is extraordinary. I would like to send all my thoughts and prayers to Mazey and Zane. I am also curious to know how you keep their father's memory alive. God bless you!

Comments: I have enjoyed visiting this page. Please accept my sincere
sympathy for your loss. My heart goes out to you. I never
knew what grief was until we lost a child. While we know we
will join them in heaven one day, it seem little consolation
at this time in our lives. We have gotten so much comfort
from reading the memorials on the WEB and can't thank you
enough for the effort you have put into setting up the memorials.
God will surely bless this outreach ministry and you.

My only sibling, Donna, came to visit me in May of this year. She and her husband went to a park to see a waterfall. While she was at the waterfall sightseeing a landslide took place. Boulders rained down upon everyone near the base of the waterfall. Donna and 7 others did not survive. Anguish, despair. Her death haunts me. I feel as if I lost half of me.

Derek was 17,a senior, a lifeguard, and a diver. Ryan was 15 and loved by all he never met a stranger. Our boys are greatly missed as I know yours are. If you'd like to chat thaat would be fine.

What a loss, but I also know no one ever really dies, which always makes me feel better when I read these pages ... I can feel them alive even as I write this.... I guess it is knowing that which makes it easier for me whenever a friend passes over.... one part of me is sad & crying, and I can feel them there comforting me & can't ignore that I feel them & know they are there & get the message they have for me that they are doing fine & not to cry.... I am speaking mainly of a very good friend who passed over this year.

Anyway, my love iswith you & I appreciated your story... what a shock. They are beautiful & these pages are so very very well done. Thanks for sharing your deep beautiful story.

I am also a grandma - 50 but look in my 30's everyone says - they think I'm her mom, not grandma.... that's always fun for me when they say that.... I love her more than anything. I pray your grandchildren are blessed now & forever in every way.

I wish no one ever invented alcohol & that it was not an acceptable drink in this society. It is just poison.... why this society makes it 'cool' or 'fun' to go poison oneself in the sake of 'fun' I don't know.... but perhaps our next generations can be wiser than the society and have fun in other ways. I feel the same way about cigarettes.... these two 'legal drugs' have caused more pain & suffering & deaths than any war... and daily we all have to smell that stuff whether we like it or not (even if just a little sniff - it always makes me hold my breath).

If there is anything I can do to help, I will.

Blessings,
Anand

I'm working on my homepages but for now I just put the www of the company whose products I use & share, which have deeply changed my life & those around me.... very pure & good & life changing.

Comments: I lost my son (age 14) on September 15, 1999 and I'm feeling the pain all over again as the 2 year anniversary
comes nearer. and his birthday (10-9-82) and the holidays. It's coming back. I needed a memorial and can't even
think what to write. I like the memorial you had for the boys. This is beautiful. I guess I feel alone right now and need
to know there are others out there. They are all angels in the next world; and are trying to help us when they
can to cope with this world.

I am 18 & I know that I have only begun living my life and it makes me very sad to know that people my age die all the time.

Comments: What a beautiful tribute to your son and nephew. I lost my 26 year old brother a little over two years ago to a traffic accident. I have been echoing your words about learning to live with your grief rather than overcoming it since that day. It gets less painful to live everyday but the ache is always there and I suppose always will be. May God bless you and Steve, Ryan's two children and all of Ryan and Scotty's loved ones.

Comments: What a touching story. I know your heart ache. I know your pain. I still feel it today. The boys are such goodlooking
boys. I pray they both knew Jesus. I will pray for you and your family. God will strengthen you, love you, and show
His loving mercy on you.

You see, I know the pain your feeling. My precious daughter-in-law was killed by a drunk driver on 8-16-98. You may
be thinking, but she was only your daughter-in-law, these were our children, the pain is different. No. If you had known
Laurie, you'd understand. She was my daughter-in-law, yes, but she was much much more. She was my child. In
my heart, she was mine. I loved her as my own. She was also my friend. I still cry at the mention of her name---not
as much as I did, but I still cry. My life has an empty space that no one will ever fill. It belongs to Laurie. But I know
where Laurie is. I know how much she loved our Savior. Her life showed that. Knowing where she is brings comfort.

I pray God's love and peace be with you. He will comfort you.

Hope you come by my new site. I have memorial pages for Laurie there. Hope to see you.

God bless you and your family.

Janette

Tyler was 21 years old also. Our stories are so much the same and I can feel what you feel. So much to deal with, so many sources of pain. We would have loved to have Tyler's child to raise. It is so hard on all of you and for your grandchildren, but they are such a blessing. Thank you for sharing your story. I know both of the boys will always be remembered by so many.

You never think about it happening to you until it does, and to lose a 2 year old granddaughter, one week after her second birthday was probably the worst nightmare of my life. I am raising 3 of my other grandchildren and have become double paranoid since we lost little Autumn, I know I am too overprotective but nothing can ever change that! Thank you for being there in my time of sorrow.

year.Her father kidnapped her and there was an accident.He had been drinking. They were driving through a
forest and got a flat tire.He went to get help but he didnt
want her to run away, so he tied her to a tree.when he was
walking to go find a gas station he got picked up and they drove him to the nearest gas station (25 miles).The next morning he couldnt remember where he left her so he decided it wasnt worth contacting the police.So he just left her there,tied to a tree.That was a year ago,and I still hate him.I know everyone says I shouldnt hate him,but I do.I cant help it.Our storys may not be that similar but we both lost our baby's, and I know how you feel. If I would have looked harder,or not have been working that day, my Cleo would still be with me.I just want you to know that you are not alone.

I also thought that if I didn't constantly surround myself with his memories that I would forget him. That was the wrong way to handle it, it made me miserable. Then on February 14th 1997 my other friend Ben killed himself also. On January 26th 1999 my friend Robin was skateboarding and he fell out into traffic and was hit later the next day he died. I know that none of these stories have anything to do with your Scotty and Ryan but I just wanted you to know that there are people out there that care. Always, Nichole

I pray that you have found some comfort, or at least understanding, on the internet. I have found wonderful, compassionate souls on here. I guess the only people I care to talk to anymore are those who have lost children. I come at grief from 2 places. My grandson was murdered in July, he was 18. He and his mother lived with us for the first 7 years. In many ways, I was his other mother. My heart is broken but I must also support and grieve for and with my daughter. I can only imagine the suffering of 2 sisters losing their sons together. God bless both of you. God bless your family. I pray that God wraps his loving arms around you all and holds you tight til eternity mends your broken hearts. God bless!

Comments: I feel the pain that you have as we have also lost two children. Gary we did not know he was so sick. In only two weeks he had passed away with a rare blood disease at the age of 24, one week later he would have been 25 and we had planned a big party for him instead we had to plan for something more tragic. Five years later we then had to face the fact that our daughter Michelle was diagnose with Leukemia at the age of 25. She went through very hard doses of chemo which damaged other parts of her body and became very sick and this time she could not pull through the hard and harsh medication that they had togive her. We again had to face the tragic of planning yet another burial for our precious angel. I miss both of them so much our lives are never going to be the same. Only people that have faced this really understands what parents go through when they lose a child. A spouse you can replace but a child you can never ever replace with anyone else. I know that they are together in a better place and cannot wait until the day that we can all be together again. May God Bless you and your family and all of the other families that have had to face this. God only wants the best and he has put all of us to the test, but we can make it one day at a time, but it will never be the same again. Thank you for sharing your story with us.

We parents who have lost children feel a kinship with one another, for no one but us knows the depth of the feeling of loss. Our Trevor was killed in a car crash on Sept 14, 1997. He was a passenger - his friend was driving too fast and lost control on a busy city street. Trevor had turned 21 two weeks before the crash. Not a drinker, did not do drugs, had numerous friends, a good work ethic, going to school and a whole life of wonderful things ahead of him, like Ryan and Scott. We must learn to live with our loss, but it is difficult. I, too, have become closer to my church family and feel a need to be in church every Sunday. We will pray for you and for your sister's family. Be kind to yourselves and be patient. Cry and yell now and then, each time brings a measure of healing. Shalom Renee

I knew something terrible had happened, but as I became more "at home" traveling through this site and found your story, cried as I read. I cannot begin to imagine the pain of losing a child, my child. What a wonderful tribute of love and memories you are giving to these wonderful boys. They are truly loved and my heart goes out to you all. Thank you, again, for this site, for the caring and openess of your story and for allowing us to send our love to our own, personal angels!

His mother, my good friend, is having a very bad time dealing with his death. I have had other friends and acquaintances who have lost children and I have seen them go through the grieving process but my dear friend is just not dealing with it well at all. All I feel I can do for her is pray for her and pray that her faith will get her through this incredibly difficult time in her life. I'm not sure what I thought I would find on your web page - I guess I am looking for a way to help her or find out what she can do to better begin to heal.

I was privileged to know and love Scotty (my grand-nephew). More than once on my yearly visits back to Illinois, he gave up his bed for me and slept on a bed he had outgrown. He did it graciously and willingly, always welcoming me. hugging me and telling me he loved me. His memory will be with me always.

Comments: One year ago today a tragic accident took the lives of two of my grandsons. Scott Taylor Rhodes was 19 and Ryan Steven Aud was almost 22. It still seems as impossible, as unreal, as it did the day they died. How could they be gone? They were too young to die. They had so much living yet to do_ so many experiences left undone. I know that for all of us who loved them life will never be the same again and that we will grieve for them all of our lives. I loved Scott and Ryan from the day they were born and am thankful for many wonderful memories. They were very special young men and we were all blessed to have them in our lives. I had 10 grandchildren and I still have 10 grandchildren. Even though Scott and Ryan are gone from life as we know it, they are still with me. I feel their presence every single day. Love does not die.

I felt like I had been sucked back to July 17, 1995 when I got the call that my son had been murdered on his way home from work. I cried for you and your family, I cried for me and my family, I cried for all of our children. I was happy to hear your family held onto the faith of our Father, because it's true, He is the only way, the only light, to return us to our children. May God bless you and your family, and may He embrace you with love and peace. Ricki Zaracki (Christopher Savin's mom)

Comments: Although I did not know Ryan personally I do know his mother and I know he was and is very much loved and is missed very much by all of his family. I met him at his sister's wedding and noticed the love in his eyes for his family and for his little children. When they announced for the wedding party to join the bride and groom on the dance floor he picked up his little daughter Mazie and danced with her. And you could see the love in his eyes as he held his little daughter - she laid her little head on his shoulder and you could see he was a very proud father. I have gotten to know his very precious little children over the past year - and I see how much they miss their Daddy. Nancy, my heart goes out to all of you and to Sandy and her husband for the loss of their son and especially at this time of year. Little Mazie and Zane are so precious. God bless Ryan in heaven and God bless all of you left behind. Little Mazie and Zane are so lucky to have wonderful grandparents like you and Steve.

Comments: I too had a son, Scott Brandon Carnachan, who died in a car accident on 15 March 1998 - just 12 days after his 20th birthday. I am still coming to terms with his loss, and not an hour goes by of each and every day that he is not in my heart and thoughts - he will be in my heart forever - my baby son. Friends and family have been wonderful, but losing a loved child is something you never "get over" - you learn to live with it. Scotty died alone in his car just on the outskirts of our city - only 5 minutes away from being home safely - on a wet and miserable night. We had a beautiful cross made and erected on the hillside adjacent to the accident sight. For six months I took fresh flowers every weekend to his grave and out to his cross, but the weather is now becoming too hot, and I have planted flowers there and lavendar bushes, and they flourish and help others remember that my little man (6 ft plus) spent 20 years on this earth. My Scotty also has a little neice whose name is Taylor, just 2 months old. Sadly Scotty never got to see her, but he knew she was on the way, several weeks before he died. He just loved children and was so excited his only brother (I only had the 2 sons) Mark (23 yesterday) was going to be a Daddy. Some days I found it so hard to accept that my Scotty is no longer with us, and I am not looking forward to our first Christmas without him. On March 3 1999 would have been Scotty's 21st birthday, and I am devastated that he is not here to enjoy it. Your website is beautiful, and I would like to thank you for sharing your tribute to your Scotty and Ryan. Bernice Carnachan, Tauranga, New Zealand.

I miss all of you so much and I want to you to know that I think about you all the time. Especially Scotty and Ryan. People don't understand how much their death has impacted my life. I literally think of them several times a day. At first I could'nt think about them without crying. I had to tell everybody that I had allergies. Now when I think about them I get sad about not knowing Scotty and Ryan better. I have my very special memories and I will never forget Scott and Ryan until the day I die. I guess I just really needed you guy's to know how much I think about all of you. I even have had dreams about Scott and Ryan. All of you are very dear to me. Just because there are like a million miles between us doesn't mean that I don't feel like you all are just as much a part of my life as when I was there. There are so many things I want to say, yet I get so sad. So I will say goodbye for now. I love you sooooooo much. So when you think about Scott and Ryan everday (like I do) you will know that I am thinking about them too. Love, cousin Christy

Comments: Nancy-What a beautiful tribute to Ryan and Scott. I read their stories last night and my heart ached. Such beautiful, wonderful boys. I do believe that God had special plans for them and needed these two special boys as angels. Ryan was a wonderful father and he will live through Zane and Mazey. As I read Ryan's and Scott's story, I could feel the love that they had for their families and the love their families had for them. God Bless you all.

Comments: Hi Nancy, I've been to your site now three times and I've been at a loss as to what to say except you can feel so much love and pain here and my heart goes out to you. How lucky Ryan was to have you for a mom and how lucky his children are to have you for their grandmother. And how lucky you were to have Ryan for a son even though the years were too short. I know what I'm including is here long, but have looked for it the past 3 days and finally found it. You may have read it already, but in case you haven't I'm including it. To my dearest family, some things I'd like to say. But first of all, to let you know, that I arrived okay. I'm writing this from heaven. Here I dwell with God above. Here, there's no more tears of sadness; Here is just eternal love. Please do not be unhappy just because I'm out of sight. Remember that I am with you every morning, noon and night. That day I had to leave you when my life on earth was through. God picked me up and hugged me and He said, "I welcome you. It's good to have you back again, you were missed while you were gone. As for your dearest family, They'll be here later on. I need you here badly, you're part of my plan. There's so much that we have to do, to help our mortal man." God gave me a list of things, that he wished for me to do. And foremost on the list, was to watch and care for you. And when you lie in bed at night the day's chores put to flight. God and I are closest to you....in the middle of the night. When you think of my life on earth, and all those loving years. Because you are only human, they are bound to bring you tears. But do not be afraid to cry: it does relieve the pain. Remember there would be no flowers, unless there was some rain. I wish that I could tell you all that God has planned. If I were to tell you, you wouldn't understand. But one thing is for certain, though my life on earth is o'er. I'm closer to you now, than I ever was before. There are many rocky roads ahead of you and many hills to climb; But together we can do it by taking one day at a time. It was always my philosophy and I'd like it for you too; That as you give unto the world, the world will give to you. If you can help somebody who's in sorrow and pain; Then you can say to God at night......"My day was not in vain." And now I am contented....that my life was worthwhile. Knowing as I passed along the way I made somebody smile. So if you meet somebody who is sad and feeling low; Just lend a hand to pick him up, as on your way you go. When you're walking down the street and you've got me on your mind; I'm walking in your footsteps only half a step behind. And when it's time for you to go....from that body to be free. Remember you're not going.....you're coming here to me. And I will always love you from that land way up above, Will be in touch again soon P.S. God sends his love

Comments: Dear Nancy, Words can't possibly express how sorry I am for your loss. You have created a wonderful tribute to your son and nephew here, and I'm sure their memory will go on forever. I came to your site through the link you left on the "grands" list. I also have a son named Ryan. He just turned 26, and when he was younger, he took many risky chances drinking and driving. I am going to send him your story to read, just incase he ever thinks about taking that risk again. Although my Ryan is not married, many of the caring ways you described in your Ryan are also in my son. You have taken on quite a challenge in raising those two precious grands...Thank God you are there for them, and will be able to tell them about their very special Daddy as they grow older. My husband and I are also raising one of our grands. Matt is 9 years old and has been with us going on 3 years. We are in the process of adopting. Please feel free to be in touch through my email or the grands list anytime. Again, please accept my heartfelt sympathy, and pass on the same to your sister and the rest of the family members. Sincerely, Norleen Patterson Sewickley, PA.

They are both very handsome young men, and their legacy will live on through you, and this page that is so filled with love, you can feel it! I come from a really close family myself, and we lost our Father this past March. I miss him so much! My Mother hurt's the worst! If I could have one wish in the whole world, it would be to bring my Father back to my Mom. Even If I had to sacrifice never seeing him again myself, I'd just want him back for Mom. Seeing her hurt so bad, is what hurts the worst. Please know that my deepest sympathies & prayers are with you and all your family! You mentioned talking about them help's. It help's me too when I talk about my Dad. Please visit my Tribute to my Dad when you get a chance. With great respect, & hug's. Tracy O'Carney

I also lost a family member in Januray 1998 and the pain continues. However, every day I am comforted by the belief that God takes those who are so special, so significnat and he calls them to Heaven. That is where I believe your boys are, in a beuatiful place called Heaven. While they are away, I know the pain is immense but remember it is only now that you can't see them in person, that is why we are blessed with memoreis. God Bless you all!

Every night that I go to sleep I feel much safer knowing that Scotty once and slept on it. I just wanted to say thank you for all that Sandy and Mark have done for me. Scotty I love you and not one days goes by that I don't think of you. You will forever be in my heart and my thoughts. I love you all-Corrie

I remember trying to find that special picture of Sammi and Scotty that I had. I had to work that day the first thing I did was have that picture of the two of them blown up. I cried all day at work. All I could think about was how could I be strong for my friends, Sammi, and Jenny, Megan, Kyle, Tom ect..... I took the next few days off work just to be by their sides when thay needed me. To this day I hope It was enough. I didn't know Scotty the way some did, I really only knew him through friends but that short time I also see what was so special to all who were close. Ryan was a class mate of mine and I had always found him to be a wonderful person. I wish all the luck to his to children and family. Take care Amber P Schaefer RHS Class of '94

I realize that he completed my life. Fortunately, I realized this many years ago and I made sure that he knew it. I am grateful to you and Daddy for the gift of such a giving and loving Brother. I hope that both of you know that because of all that you gave us we never really wanted for anything. I miss Ryan desperately, but I also feel fortunate. He enriched my life in so many ways. We are so lucky that he left us Zane and Mazey. I am also grateful to you for showing me the way to the Lord. I realize now that joining The Church prepared me for our tragedy. My faith helps me to know that my Brother is safe and protected. It is that assurance that helps me to go on each day. Ryan is the bravest and strongest person I have ever known. Memories of him will live in my heart forever. He is so much apart of me. I am so grateful for such a loving family, and so was Ryan. May God bless Ryan, Scotty, and all of us left here, especially Zane and Mazey, with Peace. I Love You, Shelly

I remember feeling "cheated" because I didn't have a sweet little brother like him. I never imagined that Kim and her family would feel that same "cheated" feeling someday. Scotty gave more love to people in the short 19 years that he lived than some people will ever experience in their lifetime. Each time that I saw Scotty, he always made me feel like I was an important part of his life. I really miss him, but I find a smile swelling up inside me whenever I think of a "Scotty" story!

Comments: I remember the first time I met Ryan. He was so quiet and self-contained. He was about to become a father for the first time. I imagine that Ryan had no idea what was to come of his life. The gift of a precious son, then the gift of a precious daughter, while the GREATEST of families stood by him. I did not know on that first day that I met Ryan that his life would end so abruptly. I am glad that I did get to meet him, experience his "hidden" smile, and am still blessed with knowing his family. My husband, Steve, and I have said from the first day we met the Aud's and the Rhodes' that we have probably met one of the nicest families EVER! Everything about their families was everything we dream of...and then tragedy struck. We admire the compassion and strong hearts that reveal so much about these families. Our love goes out whole heartedly to each of them as we cannot imagine their grief. I am glad I met Ryan for I will forever see him when I look into the eyes of Mazey and Zane.

Comments: I will never forget when Ryan came down to St. Simons Island to visit us with his friend, Jason Bardsley. Oh, he was such a good boy. We really enjoyed spending time with him. I can still see him and Jason climbing trees on Jekyll Island. They were really great kids. Usually boys that age (seems like they were 8 or 9), can really drive you nuts...not them! They walked on the beach looking for shells and swam in the ocean. Ryan had such a positive attitude about everything, that was what made him such a wonderful little guy. When my daughter, Valerie, first became friends with Ryan's sister, Shelly, I knew right away that both Shelly and Ryan were very special kids. I can remember when they got their new puppy, NICK. Ryan was so much smaller than Nick. Nick would barrell Ryan over onto the ground, but Ryan loved it. God Bless all who touched Ryan's life, and all whose lives he touched. Ryan will live on forever in many hearts, I know he'll live on in mine. Sincerely, BRENDA REYNOLDS

There are two parts of Ryan left on this earth that will go on and show just what a wonderful person he was and they need all the prayer and love that they can receive. I, myself, thank God for Nancy, Steve and Shelly. They will give Zane and Mazey what they need, and for that they are what I consider "angels on earth". God bless all who mourn the loss of Ryan, and may each of us realize the gift that he was. VALERIE REYNOLDS JOHNSON

Comments: I am so sorry to hear of the deaths of Scotty and Ryan. No family should have to lose two loved ones. But they do. I lost my son and granddaughter, both in the last 11 months. My prayers are with you. I know the pain you are feeling. If you need to talk, write to me. I am a MOM also. Karen

Comments: Your story in memory of Ryan and Scott ,touched my heart I know words cannot express the pain you and your family feel,The only time I can ever get any type of comfort, is talking to other bereaved parents as well,people who havent been thru what u and I have dont have a connection, of course this is my own opinion, take care and if you ever need some to talk with I would be more than happy too. My sweet angel in heaven Sarah is with your angels above.. Take care, Karen

Comments: Your tributes, letters etc. in memory of Ryan and Scott are beautiful. It was 5 yrs, 7-24, that my 21 yr old son, Brad, died in a car accident. He also lived much life in his short time on this earth with us. He worked hard and played hard, and was also well liked and a friend to many. We are also fortunate for the many people who can to say good bye to our son, and the love and compassion people showed us and our daughter, Brenda. We miss our son so much. It is not that we don't love our daughter, because we do very much, it is just that you miss the loved one not with us. Keep in touch. Thanks for your sharing. Judy

Comments: I am so sorry for what happenned to Ryan. I can't say I understand your pain, because it's impossible for someone who has never experienced such a loss to understand what someone who did feels. But even if this won't heal your pain, you should feel better knowing that wherever Ryan is, he is watching over you and specially over his children.
As long has you remember him, he will always be there.

Comments: I was so happy to find your site, the loss of our little Angel was so devastating, as all our losses were. You never think about it happening to you until it does, and to lose a 2 year old granddaughter, one week after her second birthday was probably the worst nightmare of my life. I am raising 3 of my other grandchildren and have become double paranoid since we lost little Autumn, I know I am too overprotective but nothing can ever change that! Thank you for being there in my time of sorrow.

Comments: My heart goes out to you.I lost a 4 year old daughter last
year.Her father kidnapped her and there was an accident.He had been drinking. They were driving through a
forest and got a flat tire.He went to get help but he didnt
want her to run away, so he tied her to a tree.when he was
walking to go find a gas station he got picked up and they drove him to the nearest gas station (25 miles).The next morning he couldnt remember where he left her so he decided it wasnt worth contacting the police.So he just left her there,tied to a tree.That was a year ago,and I still hate him.I know everyone says I shouldnt hate him,but I do.I cant help it.Our storys may not be that similar but we both lost our baby's, and I know how you feel. If I would have looked harder,or not have been working that day, my Cleo would still be with me.I just want you to know that you are not alone.

Hi, my name is Cara and I'm from New Mexico. I was surfing around trying to find angel graphics for my webpage and came across your webpage. I was just going in to take a peek when I became so drawn into it. Thank goodness I'm home alone, it made it a lot easier to cry a thousand streams when I read your story. I'm 17 years old and I to, have done stupid things and I sometimes think I'm invinable. And sadly, I admit that I've gotten into a car with someone who was drunk or if I was the one driving. I needed to hear your story. It makes me sob when I realize that it could have been my mother or father to get a phone call or a knock on the door. Ryan and Scott has touched my life and I hope it brings you some type of comfort to let you know that they are changing lives. I want to share your story with my friends and so they to, can realize how something can change your life forever. and I know now that God Only Takes The Best.
You are in my prayers. and thank you for touching my life. God Bless you all.

Comments: Nancy,
Dick Farmer shared this address with me. I hope you don't mind. The tribute is simply overwhelming. I'm fighting back tears as I type this note. The boys were truly loved by so many people, and your hearts must feel so empty. I'm sure that your grandchildren must be so precious to you. My own son is 26, and has a daughter and son 3 and 4. I can't imagine how it would feel to lose Eric, and to know that J.R. and Myra had lost their daddy. Thank you so much for reminding me how precious they are. If anyone ever had a doubt whether it's all worth it or not, all they would have to do is visit your page. Myra and J.R. lost their maternal grandfather last year, and Myra says that when she gets to heaven, PaPa Bobby will be waiting for her. It truly will be a wonderful reunion in heaven when you are reunited with your precious baby. Although it can't possibly make the hurt go away, you have been blessed with a wonderful gift in Zane and Mazey. Take care of them, and Steve and yourself; and Ryan will be waiting for you when you arrive. My thoughts and prayers are with you. May God Bless.

Comments: Scott and Ryan,
I miss you guys alot. There's so many fun times and great memories in my mind, but I still feel empty inside. I know you're having a good time, and I try to have a good time here. The last ten months have been different and hard here. I missed you on my 21st birthday, Scotty. I only made it to one bar before I started missing you. Taylor is so cute, and Pat and Kim live around here now, and my life is getting better. You will always be my best friend.
Love,
Kyle

Comments: I have just finished reading your story and I'm so very sorry for your great loss. Tomorrow will be 6 months since my Mother lost her Daughter, my Sister. Marilyn was murdered by her husband of only 14 months (she was shot in the head with a 357 magnum). Marilyn left behind her three beautiful children (15 yrs, 12 and 10 yrs. old). My Mother has been so busy with the children, fighting for custody that I don't believe she has actually realizes that Marilyn is gone. I pray that God will be with my Mother the day reality finds her. There isn’t a day that goes by that I don’t cry because I miss my only sister and everything my Mother and Marilyn’s children are going through.

You’re in my prayers!

Laurie

Comments: I just wanted to say that my x-husband is an alcoholic and I pray everytime he leaves my house with our son that God will protect my son and bring him back to me safely.My x-husband has only been "caught" one time with a DUI and that has not stopped his drinking and driving. I also pray that he will quit drinking before he is the reason another sensless death occurs. God bless you.

Comments: I believe that by putting your story out there for others you are helping others feel that they are not alone. I know that my dear friend Kim has been helped alot by reading others stories. I was so touched I can't express my feelings. To have suffered a loss as you have is something I wouldn't wish on anybody. You are all in my prayers.
