This memorial page is dedicated in deep and humble sorrow for those who have lost a loved one through a tragic death.

I have a candle lighting book for you to light a candle for your loved one. The link is at the bottom of this page.

I am no longer adding memorials on this page because you can add your own memorial with a URL to your memorial page (if you have one) in my candle lighting book.
If you have any problems my email is at the bottom of this page. Also, I have placed links to two hosting sites where you may build a lovely memorial for your loved one for free (and you don't need to know HTML to do it).

Please be Gentle



Please be gentle with me for I am grieving
The sea I swim in is a lonely one,
and the shore seems miles away
Waves of despair numb my soul
as I struggle through each day
My heart is heavy with sorrow
I want to shout and scream
and repeatedly ask, "WHY?"
At times, my grief overwhelms me,
and I weep bitterly

So great is my loss

Please don't turn away
or tell me to move on with my life
I must embrace my pain
before I can begin to heal
Companion me through my tears
and sit with me in loving silence
Honor where I am in my journey,
not where you think I should be
Listen patiently to my story
I may need to tell it over and over again
It's how I begin to grasp the enormity of my loss
Nurture me through the weeks
and the months ahead
Forgive me when I seem distant and inconsolable

A small flame still burns within my heart
And shared memories may trigger
both laughter and tears
I need your support and understanding
There is no right or wrong way to grieve
I must find my own path
Please, will you walk beside me?

(John Angell James, "Sorrow for the Death of Friends")

"Naked I came from my mother's womb, and naked I will
leave this life. The Lord gives, and the Lord takes
away.
Praise the name of the Lord!" (Job 1:21)

"See, I am the only God! There are no others. I kill,
 and I make alive! I wound, and I heal, and no one
 can rescue you from My power!" Deuteronomy 32:39

When a holy and beloved object of our affection is removed by death, we ought to sorrow. Humanity demands it; and Christianity, in the person of the weeping Jesus, allows it. The man without a tear, is a savage or a Stoic--but not a Christian. God intends when He bestows His gifts--that they should be received with smiles of gratitude; and when He recalls them--that they should be surrendered with "drops of sacred grief." Sorrow is an affection implanted by the Creator in the soul, for wise and beneficent purposes; and it ought not to be ruthlessly torn up by the roots--but directed in its exercise by reason and piety.

The work of grace, though it is above nature--is not against
it. The man who tells me not to weep at the grave--insults
me, mocks me, and wishes to degrade me! Tears are the
silent, pure, sincere testimony of my heart to the excellence
of the gift He gave in mercy; and in mercy, no doubt, as well
as judgment, He has recalled.

But, then, though we mourn--we must not murmur.
We may sorrow--but not with the violent and uncontrolled
grief of the heathen, who have no hope.

Our sorrow must flow, deep as we like, but noiseless and still
--in the channels of submission.

It must be a sorrow so quiet, as to hear all the words of consolation which our heavenly Father utters amidst the gentle strokes of His rod. It must be a sorrow so reverential, as to adore Him for the exercise of His prerogative in taking away what and whom He pleases.

It must be a sorrow so composed, as to prepare us for doing His will as well as bearing it. It must be a sorrow so meek and gentle, as to justify Him in His dispensations.

It must be a sorrow so confiding, as to be assured
that there is as much love in taking the mercy away--as there was in bestowing it. It must be a sorrow so grateful, as to be thankful for the mercies left--as well as afflicted for the mercies lost. It must be a sorrow so trustful, as to look forward to the future with hope.
 

It must be a sorrow so patient, as to bear all the aggravations that accompany or follow the bereavement with unruffled acquiescence. It must be a sorrow so holy, as to lift the prayer of faith for Divine grace, to sanctify the stroke. It must be a sorrow so lasting, as to preserve through all the coming years of life, the benefit of that
event, which in one solemn moment changed the whole aspect of our earthly existence.
