condolences/ Dana Hatcher (none)
It has become habit to come back to this website each time that I dream my only son is alive again. His body was found June 18, 2004. Something about your daughter's photo touched my heart. Then I read the newspaper report of how she died, and I was just stunned. My own child was shot 8 times. People don't realize that the death itself is bad enough, but to die such a violent death as your little girl is unimaginable! It made me cry. I know that the holidays will be rough on your family. I wish I had some magic words or formula that could make it better. I haven't found any. Just want you to know that you do not grieve alone. I didn't know your daughter,of course, but we who have been thru terrible losses like this share a common bond that others just can't understand. What has helped me thru these months has been allowing myself to grieve in my own way and my own time. I do not make excuses. If I want to cry, I cry. If I want to talk about my child, I talk about him. Why pretend that he didn't exist just because it makes other uneasy? Some people will be a comfort, others will not as time goes by. But we MUST be good to ourselves. I want to be in the best shape possible when I see my son in heaven again - don't you? God be with you.

IF TEARS COULD BUILD A STAIRWAY! / Kathy &. Marissa Gaskill (Friends)
If tears could build a stairway, and memories a lane, I would walk right up to heaven and bring you back again.
No farewell words were spoken, No time to say "Goodbye" You were gone before I knew it, and only God knows why.
My heart still aches with sadness, and secret tears still flow What it meant to love you - Noone can ever know
But now I know you want me to mourn for you no more; To remember all the HAPPY times life still has much in store
Since you'll never be forgotten, I pledge to you today - A hallowed place within my heart is where you'll always stay.
Gabby, We sure do miss you. It's really hard trying to get ready for Christmas. I have my family, but I think of your mom, dad, and Corey. I know that they miss you and wish that you were here to have. May you enjoy you Christmas in heaven this year. Give mom and dad a sign that your with them on Christmas.
I know holidays are never the same without our angels here with us, but know they are still with us in our hearts and looking over us all the time. Your family will be in my prayers during this time and always.

Thinking of you / Mag Muoio
I just want to say what a beautiful tribute you did for your daughter, I can't imagine what you and your family are going through. I have a 12 year old daughter and I don't how i would be able to deal with it, god forbid if anything happened to her. My heart goes out to you and your family and for everybody who knew Gabby she was a beautiful little girl. We also lost our grandson at the age of 6 from a animal, his name is Jared and will always be remembered, my step-daughter created a memorial for him also : www.jaredmyangel.com God Bless You and Your Family always in our thoughts Close

You're Not Alone (I Care) / Jeri ~Mom To Laquan Majette~ ((MOMS))
WE'RE ALIKE, YOU AND I
We're alike, you and I We've never met Our faces would be those of strangers if we met We would barely perceive the other's presence If we passed on our walk through the mists We're unknown to each other Until the terrible words have been spoken "MY CHILD DIED"
We're alike, you and I We measure time in seconds and eternities We try to go forward to yesterday Tomorrows are for the whole people, And we are incomplete now The tears after a time turn inward To become invisible to all save you and me Our souls are rumpled from wrestling with demons. And doubts and unanswerable prayers. "GIVE ME BACK MY CHILD"
We're alike, you and I. The tears that run down your face are my tears And the wound in your soul is my pain too. We need time, but time is our enemy For it carries us farther and farther From our lost child And we cry out; "HELP ME"
We're alike, you and I. And we need each other Don't turn away, but give me your hand And for a time we can cease to be strangers And become what we truly are, A family closer than blood.
United by a bond that was forced upon us--- But a bond that can make us stronger, Still wounded and not to sure, But stronger for our sorrows are shared. "WE NEED NOT WALK ALONE"
~ by Judy Dickey ~
The above poem was placed on my son's web site by a memorial friend, Dianne White. whom loss her precious son, Nicky, due to an illness (nicky-white.memory-of.com) I now pass it on to you. I sincerely hope she doesn't mind. It's too beautiful to keep to myself. Other Father is patiently guiding us along like footprints in the sand. May our Heavenly Father bless and keep us until he calls us Home.

My Thanksgiving prayer for you / Marilyn Barnes- Rachel's Mom
To Gabby's family, The holidays are rapidly approaching, often overwhelming us who have lost loved ones with sorrow and grief beyond description. My Thanksgiving prayer for you is that somehow-somewhere amidst the sorrow that you feel, there will be found renewed strength to get you through the day and a peace that only the Lord can give. May beautiful memories of your beloved Gabrielle fill your minds and comfort your hearts. You are in my thoughts and prayers.
Nothing Gold Can Stay
Nature's first green is gold, Her hardest hue to hold,
Her early leaf's a flower; But only so an hour.
Then leaf subsides to leaf. So Eden sank to grief,
