Poem from Daddy!
“CJ, I never got the chance to say I love you, I never got the chance to say, I miss you! Nobody, told me you were going to die. It hurts because I never got the chance to say goodbye! I hope that You’re happy wherever you are. I’ll have you in my heart, no matter how far. To the Heavens above, I wish I could fly, only to give you a warm goodbye. I will remember you each day that I live, you were a person with so Much love to give. It’s such a privilege to have had you. No one can deny, It might time to say goodbye. I will keep with me, the good times we shared, because I want you to know, just how much I cared. Until we meet Again, on God we must rely, I love you, I miss you and for now, goodbye, my son! Love, daddy!”
Poem from Nae!
“CJ, you gave me no farewell, neither did you say goodbye! You were gone before we knew it! And only God knows why. A million times we will miss you, a million times we will cry. If love alone could have saved you, you would have never died. In life we loved you dearly, in death, we love you still. In our hearts, you hold a place no one else can fill. It broke our hearts to lose you. But you didn’t go alone, for part of us went with you. The day God, took you home. We will meet again someday, and I know you’re in a better place. I thank God that he made you my brother, while you were here! I Love you, my brother!”
The family would like to thank everyone for their deep appreciation and heartfelt gratitude for the many acts of kindness shown to us during our time of bereavement. May the favor of the Lord, rest richly upon you!
