Got me misty eyed.....Been having similar thoughts myself lately concerning my 15 year old son.Hi, this is Kyle's mom.From that day forward, I knew I had lost my little boy and he was turning into a young man. I never had to worry about him drinking or doing drugs...he only wanted to be with people who shared the same interest in the love of their LH cars as much as he did.
Me too Craig. My oldest is 15 now... and talking about getting his learners permit. I'm not sure how I feel about all that, but I know I can't keep him under my wing forever.Got me misty eyed.....Been having similar thoughts myself lately concerning my 15 year old son.
Rest in Piece Brother Kyle, you were here for only a short time, but, to those of us who knew you and where lucky enough to have met you, we shall rest easy that when it is our time to go, that we will be with you once again.I don't know where this came from, someone named Strangis heard it and recorded it as John Wayne spoke at the funeral of director Howard Hawks in 1977
"Do not stand at my grave and weep.
I am not there. I do not sleep.
I am a thousand winds that blow.
I am the diamond glints on snow.
I am sunlight on ripened grain.
I am the gentle autumn's rain.
When you awaken in the mornings hust,I am the swift uplifting rush of quiet birds in circled flight.
I am the soft star that shines at night.
Do not stand at my grave and cry, I am not there.
I did not die.
Carried this clipping since my son passed Jean, and my wifes brothers son also.
All way before their time and all way before us.
Take care of yourself and family now they need you more than ever and everyone knows you did everything you could for Kyle.
Wow, I had to go back for a few edits, couldn't hold back either.
It never gets easier you just have to do the best you can. Remember those good times and cherish those memories.
