'Susie & Mel'

To My Sweet (Mel),

It's been a month since yesterday that you've passed. The days are not getting any easier on me. My heart still aches from your absence. I still look for you in the house when I get home from work. Hoping to somehow see you. My mind still hasn't completely comprehended that you are gone Sweetheart. I wish that this was a bad dream and I would wake up to see my baby boy again.

I will cherish all of the beautiful memories with you. You are such a wonderful son. Everyone loved you so much Mel. I know that you are keeping Mama strong, without your love I wouldn't have made it through this month. I can feel your presence with me at times in our home. Sometimes it's so strong that I think I may be going a little crazy. Your Daddy and brother Cosmo is doing well but we all miss you like crazy. There was a poem that Mama read that it solidified my feeling for you Son.

'I Only Wanted You'

They say memories are golden

well maybe that is true.

I never wanted memories,

I only wanted you.


A million times I needed you,

a million times I cried.

If love alone could have saved you

you never would have died.


In life I loved you dearly,

In death I love you still.

In my heart you hold a place

no one could ever fill.


If tears could build a stairway

and heartache make a lane,

I'd walk the path to heaven

and bring you back again.


Our family chain is broken,

and nothing seems the same.

But as God calls us one by one,

the chain will link again.
