Memorial Book

Saturdays have never been the same
And I still can’t believe you’re gone
So many things I wish that I could say
I guess the hardest part of moving on
Are these memories that have overtaken me
Once again I’m right here on my knees

I’m barely hanging on
With all these empty feelings
I’m hurting in so many ways
And though I can’t begin to understand the reason
I still believe that you’re GOD

Saturdays have never been the same
That moment keeps repeating in my mind
The ringing phone
A call that changed my world
An emptiness that words cannot define
All these memories have overtaken me
So once again I fall upon my knees

And as you cried I cried with you
I’ll never leave
I’ll carry you through
Can’t you see that I was always there?
These ashes of pain will fade



Im sitting here alone tonight this Sept 3 2009, and a million things are going through my mind through tears I remember exactly five years ago from tonite.  The smiles the laughter we had together all of us that evening. I was so happy to have all my children and grandchildren there at once I treasure this nite in my heart and mind. None of us in our wildest nitemares even imangined these were our last hours together as a family. 

The next morning in the early hours your life was taken violently attacked as you were sleeping for no reason unjustly at the hands of a heartless animal, my hope for you Justin Patterson are the flames of hell for all eternity!! You took the sacred from me, my child.

Five years ago tonite I gave Vernon a hug a kiss on his cheek and told him how much I love him I feel that hug I feel his cheek. A family friend Joey Bonvillian died this morning and once again Vernon got a hug from his Mom five years after the last one, this I know because Joey said he'd give Vernon a hug for me, and I know he did, for he too now flys high and Heaven is in his eyes.


Here comes the rain again falling from the stars.

Drenched in my pain again

becoming who we are. As my memory rests it never forgets what I lost.

Wake me up when September ends.


We got the call that day
One out of the gray
And when the smoke cleared
It took my breath away
We didn't believe
It could happen to you
I guess we're all one phone call from our knees

We're gonna get there soon
If every building falls
And all the stars fade
I'll still be singin' this song
The one they can't take away
I'm gonna get there soon,
You're gonna be there too
Cryin' in your room
Prayin' Lord, come through
We're gonna get there soon

Lord it's your light,
Oh it's your way,
Pull me out of the dark
Just to show me the way
Cryin' out now
From so far away...
You pull me closer to love
Closer to love
Meet me once again
Down off Lake Michigan
Where we could feel the storm blowin' down with the wind
We can't apologize
For all the tears we've cried
We've been way too strong now for all our lives
We're gonna get there soon,
You're gonna be there too
Cryin' in your room,
Prayin' Lord come through
We're gonna get there soon

Heaven's all that I've waited for
All of my life (We're gonna get there)
Lord You are all that I've waited for
All of my life
You pull me closer to love
Closer to love

Lord it's your light,
Oh it's your way,
Pull us out of the dark
Just to show us the way
Cryin' out now
From so far away...
You pull us closer to love
Closer to love


June 3 2009 


Today is coming to an end, your 23rd Birthday, Vernon.  We went to the Mexican resturant and ate, where you so loved to go, then we went to the visitor center at Lake Wappapello and there me, Tracy Johnah Chad and your Dad lit candles on your Birthday cake as we sung Happy Birthday to you. We then let 23 balloons go over the lake for you and watched as each one went out of sight. We know from Heaven you reached down and took each one with our Birthday wishes attached. It was so nice son but it was a bitter sweet, our hearts so heavy as we each missed you so very much, you should have been here with us at your Birthday celebration. We went to your garden, your resting place, cleaned and left tokens of our love for you. As we left I tried so hard the whole time to hold them back, but my tears fell like rain as I had to leave you there. I miss you so much Vernon each and every day every moment every breath I take, I always will until Im with you again.  I love you more than words ca ever say.

Happy birthday to my son, my Angel in the sky

hey i really did not get to know vernon but i heard lots of great things about him well i miss and love you love jamie

Another Easter without you son. The weather was cold and rainy just like in my Heart. But the mask I wear covered my pain. I watched your nieces and nephew color and hunt their eggs and in my mind I see you running around looking for eggs the smile on your face when you found one and your beautiful red hair shineing in the warm sun. O how I miss those days.

I have so many precious memories son, they make me cry as I want the time back so badly. It just isnt fair you had to go so soon, son you took my heart with you. I see so much of you Vernon in Jason, Tracy and Stacy without them and your nieces and nephew I couldn't go on.

On Friday I shook Mark Martin's hand for you and so did Tracy. The tears run down my face as I was so happy to do that for you but wished it had been you there shaking his hand. On sat I saw Mercy Me in concert again, they sang I can only Imangine and the tears fell like rain, I know you know and I can only Imangine. That song still touches my very soul.

I love you Vernon and I miss you more than words can say, every minute of everyday. You are always on my mind, in my thoughts in my everyday.

Sending hugs up above my Angel


Forever and Always

He was pierced for our transgressions
He was crushed for our sins
The punishment that brought us peace was upon Him
And by His wounds, by His wounds we are healed

We are healed by Your sacrifice
And the life that You gave
We are healed for You paid the price
By Your grace we are saved
We are saved

What can wash away our sin?
Nothing but the blood of Jesus


Christmas In Heaven

December hasn’t changed
This town looks the same
They still light that tree in the city square
There’s red, white, and green shining everywhere
And I wish you were here

And I wonder . . .
Is the snow falling down on the streets of gold?
Are the mansions all covered in white?
Are you singing with angels Silent Night?
I wonder . . . what Christmas in Heaven is like 

There’s a little manger scene
Down on Third and Main
I must have walked right by it a thousand times
But I see it now in a different light
Cause I know you are there
And I wonder . . .  

Are you kneeling with shepherds before Him now?
Can you reach out and touch His face?
Are you part of that glorious holy night?
I wonder . . . .what Christmas in Heaven is like 
Is the snow falling down on the streets of gold?
Are the mansions all covered in white?
Are you singing with angels Silent Night?
I wonder . . . what Christmas in Heaven is like
