    I lost my 15yro son to an accident last Oct. His Birthday is April 16th (he would have turned 16 and gotten his drivers licence) I would like to do a memorial in the paper for him. Does anyone know of a nice poem or such that might help me.

    When we lost our daughter we received a nice one. I'll ask the Mrs. tonight if she still has it.

    My heart goes out to you.

    I'm so very sorry for your loss... my heart goes out to you.

    Here are a few I've found:

    Thinking of You with Love

    We thought of you with love today,
    but that is nothing new.
    We thought about you yesterday,
    and days before that too.
    We think of you in silence,
    we often speak your name.
    All we have are memories,
    and your picture in a frame.
    Your memory is our keepsake,
    with which we will never part.
    God has you in His keeping,
    we have you in our hearts.
    A million times we`ve wanted you.
    A million times we cried.
    If love could only have saved you,
    you never would have died.
    It broke our hearts to lose you.
    But you didn`t go alone.
    For a part of us went with you...
    the day God called you Home.

    Because of You

    Because of you I appreciate the sunset more than before.
    Because of you I stop to look up at the moon and wish upon a star.
    Because of you I look forward to hearing the birds sing in the morning,
    and thank God for their beautiful songs.
    Because of you I am more understanding of others and accept people for who they are.
    Because of you material things do not matter.
    Because of you the touch of someone you love is more
    precious than any gift you can receive.
    Because of you I have a broken heart but I thank God for sending you to me.
    For there is no stronger love than I hold for you.
    Until we meet again...

    My prayers are with you. My daughter will turn 16 on April 22. I wouldn't know what I would do if she was ever taken from me. [​IMG]
