Life holds so many priceless things
The falling rain, the wind that sings
Each star on a high, a big full moon
And sunbeams dancing in your room
The river as it rushes on
A sunset when day is gone
No wealth can buy a mountain tall
These priceless things belong to all
An autumn tree lends beauty rare
With leaves piled deep most everywhere
As nature wears a glowing smile
To make each day a day worthwhile
Could anything be quite as dear
As laughing children that we hear
The gift of friendship that is ours
The miracle of growing flowers
Each magic moment, treasured time
These priceless gifts are yours and mine.
Memories of The Heart
Feel no guilt in laughter
For your Angel knows how much you care
Feel no sorrow in a smile
That your Angel isn't here to share.
Talk about the good times
And the ways you showed you cared
The days you spent together
All the happiness you shared.
Let the memories surround you
A word someone may say
Will suddenly recapture
A time, an hour, a day.
That brings your Angel back as clearly
As though your Angel was still here
And fills you with the feelings
That your Angel is always near
For if you keep those memories
You will never be apart
And your Angel will live forever
Locked safe within your heart
Just One Rose:
Dennis drew this on an envelope which held a letter inside
that he wrote to me while he was in Eckerds Wilderness Camp.
He wrote: It's just a little something for you but I did it myself...
Little did he know that now this Rose is one of my prize possessions.
I Love You Mom:
Dennis made me a Valentine's Card one year,
while he was in Eckerd's Wilderness Camp.
He drew this on the card and wrote inside:
Roses are Red, Violets are Blue,
You'll always know, that I love you.
After Dennis passed away, I looked for a sign from him everywhere.
I could not believe that he would just up and leave me without a
word, without a goodbye. I was driving down the road on April 30th,
1998 at 7:49 p.m. and I was thinking about him and I starting crying.
The light changed to red and I almost run over the car ahead of me.
It scared me a little and I told myself I needed to get a grip.
when I happen to noticed the license plate on the car ahead of me.
The first thing I thought was Dennis's initials and he
was born in 1976.
I looked up at the sky and asked him if he was
thinking about me and did he keep me from hitting that car,
it was! Something I had prayed for, since his death.
This may come as a surprise, but I had never seen a

it was. My Rainbow. My Beautiful, Beautiful Rainbow!
When Dennis was about 4 years old, we were outside playing and he found
a bird that was fluttering around. The bird was hurt and Dennie starting
crying. I got a box and a towel and laid the bird in the box, then I told
Dennis to say a prayer. I also prayed. I asked God to please not disappoint
my child. I asked him to show him the power of prayer I told him he could
make a believer out of him for the rest of his life, if he would just do this. The
bird died. Dennie didn't understand if God could save the bird, why didn't he.
I couldn't explain, because at the time I was mad at God too, for not
answering Dennis's prayers. I never forgot that:
