Vernon, 

It's been three years and five months since you were so horribly taken from us.  I just wanted to let you know how your death has touched someone's (that you don't even know) life. I have a friend that I shared your story with about 18 months ago and she was so surprised at the fact that I could so love our Lord if he allowed something like that to happen to you. She didn't get it. 

I know that our God has the power to cause or stop all things, however he does not just go around handing out tradgedies. He loves us!

From September 04, 2004 forward I have prayed to God that he would take this horrible situation and use it for his glory. "How could there be any glory for anyone regarding this situation" you are probably wondering as do so many, myself included.  But there is because God is in control. My friend has watched the Lord work in such a great way in my life that now she has made the decision to allow him to work in hers as well. I am so thankful to God for all he does, has done, and will do!!

I want you and everyone to know that you did not die in vain, for no reason! You died for God's purpose, for others to live. Your life and death has touched so many, many you will never know and I/they will always be thankful for that.

I love you Vernie! I am so proud that I have the opportunity to call you my brother!

Patsy,

I was a friend of Tracy & Stacy's. We lost touch, but I have never forgotten any of you. I just wanted you to know that my heart goes out to you & your family. I was so sad to hear about your son Vernon. I thought I might share a little memory of him with you. I just remember all the times that I would spend the night with Tracy. We would be in her room listening to music & talking away. Vernon always wanted to be in on it. He thought we were really doing something fun I suppose. I still remember that cute little face with that bright red hair.

I can't begin to imagine your pain, but just know I'll continue to pray for you & your family. I know it's still really painful and you all miss him dearly.

You did a wonderful job of expressing your love for Vernon in the newspaper. It was so moving & I'm sure everyone gave their children one more kiss, one more hug after reading it.

God's comforting arms around you always & love,

Karen

I close both locks below the window.
I close both blinds and turn away.
Sometimes solutions aren’t so simple.
Sometimes goodbye’s the only way.

The sun will set for you,
And the shadow of the day,
Will embrace the world in gray,
Yes the sun now sets for you...
In cards and flowers at your special place,
We have prayed and pleaded for you to stay.
Sometimes beginnings aren’t so simple.
Sometimes goodbye’s the only way.
And the sun will set for you,
And the shadow of the day,
Will embrace the world in gray,
Yes the sun sets for you..

I love you Vernie! Happy New Year!


Tracy

I heard the bells on Christmas Day

Their old familiar carols play
And wild and sweet the words repeat
Of peace on earth, goodwill to men
I thought as now this day had come
The belfries of all Christendom
Had rung so long unbroken song
Of peace on earth, goodwill to men

I can hear Your voice, I can hear Your voice
Like the bells on Christmas Day
And in despair I bowed my head

There is  no peace on earth, I said
For hate is strong and mocks the song
Of peace on earth, goodwill to men
Then pealed the bells more loud and deep
God is not dead, nor doth He sleep
The wrong shall fail, the right prevail
With peace on earth, goodwill to men

I love you Vernie, Merry Christmas!

Tracy

So far away from where you are
The miles have torn us way apart
And I miss you

So far away from where you are
And standing underneath the stars
And I wish you were here

I miss the years that were erased
I miss the way the sunshine would light up your face
I miss all the little things
I never thought that they’d mean everything to me

I miss And I wish you were here

I feel the beating of your heart
I see the shadows of your face
Just know that I know where you are
I miss you And I wish you were here

I miss the years that were erased
I miss the ways the sunshine would light up your face
I miss all the little things
I never thought that they'd mean everything to me

Yeah I miss you
And I wish you
Were here

So far from where you are
These miles have torn us way apart
And I miss you

I miss you
I wish you were here

Vernon, I'm thinking of you & your family this Halloween!!  You will be forever missed!!

 

Tracy

Take this pain from me
Let me live, let me be
For a little while
Let my eyes,
See everything and nothing in their time
I don't mind
And I don't know if you see me here
But I can tell you your face is clear
I will see you...

Forever
I will see you
Forever

To hear you call my name once again
Call me sister, call me friend
Just like the first time
Call my name, it echos around me in this room

I know it's you
I don't know if you hear me there

But I can still hear your voice so clear

I will hear you...
Forever
I will hear you
Forever
I wanted you to be here a long long time
It's been hard but I have learned to carry on
Nothing could ever fill this emptiness inside
And nothing is the same since you've gone
Send us letters from above
Send us strength, send us love
Such sweet love
Sing us songs that echo in our heads and in our hearts
That's where you are

And I don't know if you feel me here
I can tell you one thing that's clear
I will feel you...
Forever

I will feel you

Forever

I will hear you
Forever
I will see you
Forever
I MISS YOU VERNIE!


Tracy
Your smile still lights up a room
Like a candle in the dark
It warms me through and through
And I guess that I had dreamed
We would never be apart
But that dream did not come true

And missing you is just a part of living
Missing you feels like a way of life
We are living out the life that we've been given
But we wish you were still here
I cannot hear the telephone
ring and not feel hopeful that it is you
And I cannot help but smile
At any news of you
And I guess I always will

Cause missing you is just a part of living
And missing you feels like a way of life
We're living out the life that we've been given
But we wish you were still here

I MISS YOU VERNIE, I LOVE YOU MORE!
Tracy

If someone said three years from now
You'd be long gone
I'd stand up and punch them out
Cause they're all wrong
I know better
Cause I just knew we had forever
And ever
Who knew

Remember when we were such fools
And so convinced and just too cool
I wish I could hug you again
I wish I could see you my friend
I'd give anything

When someone said count your blessings now
fore they're long gone
I guess I just didn't know how
I was all wrong
They knew better

I thought we had forever
And ever
Who knew


I'll keep you locked in my head
Until we meet again
And I won't forget you my friend
What happened

If someone said three years from now
You'd be long gone
I'd stand up and punch them out
Cause they're all wrong and
That last kiss
I'll cherish
Until we meet again
And time makes
It harder
I wish I could remember
But I keep Your memory
You visit me in my sleep

I miss you
Who knew
I'll always miss you
Who knew
