Little Billy and Dustin Slideshow


April 6, 2008
Dustin, you would be so proud of Little Billy or as you would say Billy Ray he has made so many changes in his life and remembers all the talks ya'll had like was yesterday. 
And as I wrote you  in my letters , Yes he can change a tire and get his hands dirty!!!  I know you were watching in amazement! I think he did it because of you and because your mother was being a cry baby LOL And like you I don't think he is too big on females crying LOL I just want to tell you he is and was a true friend to you and also here for your mother. I know I was so thankful to him! 
His heart breaks daily as does mine but we do know you are watching over us and we will see you again.  Love to you and Little Billy, Mother



Little Billy,  I do not know how often you visit this page but it is Dec 13th,2007 and this morning I was so thinking about you and want to thank you for becoming such a big part of my life. I pray you will remain for many many years to come, and your life will be full of all the dreams you have for yourself. And one day find that church girl granny wanting so for you and I see little Billy or LIttle Billettes running around. Know I am here for you any time night or day tears or smiles for as long as I live.  Love, Patti


I know Little Billy  you have out grown the (Little) but still Little Billy to me and always will be.  Now that I am to call your dad Handsome Billy I guess I could let you graduate too but nothing else  but Little Billy sounds right. I just want to thank you and your family with all my heart for all the love and support you have given me these past couple months. Talking with you does wonders for my heart. You are so like Dustin in so many ways makes me laugh. Especially telling me how beautiful I look even when in my doggie uniform. I wrote Dustin a letter to tell him this too, so I know he is laughing and saying way to go Dawg! Keep my mom smiling! So I really just want to thank you and your family so much!  Love you all! Patti 



Don't weep at my grave,

For I am not there,

I've a date with a butterfly

To dance in the air.

I'll be singing in the sunshine,

Wild and free,

Playing tag with the wind,

While I'm waiting for thee


The best kind of friend is the one you could sit on a porch with, never saying a word, and walk away feeling like that was the best conversation you've had.  ~Author Unknown


A true friend reaches for your hand and touches your heart.  ~Author Unknown

Farewell My Friend


It was beautiful as long as it lasted

The journey of my life.

I have no regrets whatsoever

save the pain I'll leave behind.

Those dear hearts who love and care...

And the strings pulling at the heart and soul...

The strong arms that held me up

When my own strength let me down.

At every turning of my life I came across good friends,

Friends who stood by me,

Even when the time raced me by.

Farewell, farewell my friends

I smile and bid you goodbye.

No, shed no tears for I need them not

All I need is your smile.

If you feel sad do think of me

for that's what I'll like when you live in the hearts

of those you love, remember then

you never die.

by Rabindranath Tagore 



I'm Free
Don't grieve for me for now I'm free,
I'm following the path God laid for me.
I took his hand when I heard him call,
I turned my back and left it all.
I could not stay another day
To laugh, to love, to work or play. 
Tasks left undone will stay that way,
I found that peace at close of day.
If my parting has left a void
Then fill it with remembered joy
A friendship shared, a laugh a kiss,
Ah yes, these things I, too, will miss, but not burdened with times of sorrow,
I wish you the sunshine of tomorrow.
My life has been full, I've savored much.
Good friends, good times, a loved ones touch.
Perhaps my time seemed all to brief
Don't lengthen it now with undue grief,
Lift up you hearts and share with me,
God wanted me now,
He set me free.

Eyes To Heaven


Eyes raised to Heaven

Searching for any signs of you.

Eyes raised to Heaven

Embracing you.


Eyes raised to Heaven

Communicating my love to you.

Eyes raised to Heaven

Remembering your love and gentleness.


Eyes raised to Heaven

Remembering your courage, strength and determination.

Eyes raised to Heaven

Remembering how you celebrated life.


Eyes raised to Heaven

Treasured memories of our time together here on earth.

Eyes raised to Heaven

Knowing you are safe, and of pain.

Dustin Lives on Through All The Many People that had the honor to know him! I love you my Son!
God Blessed Me So giving you as my son and Tiffany as my daughter!


"Let the morning bring me word of your unfailing love,
       for I have put my trust in you.
       Show me the way I should go,
       for to you I lift up my soul."     Psalm 143:8


Lord, thank You for bringing peace to my heart. I pray that You would help me be a peace-maker in my family and community...and even in the world. Help me to live in harmony with my friends and loved ones...and with my Christian family as well. Please forgive me for arguing (even when it's just in my mind and I don't carry through in person!) and being so "disagreeable" at times. Help me to see things through other people eye's so that I can better understand where they are coming from. Help me to see things through Your eyes so that I can handle situations with wisdom and understanding. Remind me to think before I speak and pray before I act. May Your will be done through me today. In Jesus' name I pray. Amen.
