Thank you sharing about David. I missed the memorial service this year to honor my son, Jason Seth who passed away in 2002 at the age of 23. I found your site when I was searching for meetings in the area. Thank you for creating such a special place to remember your son and for being the kind of parents that care so much for their loved one. I hope to create something as special for Jason one day.
Thank you for sharing this memorial -what a shining star.
It was with tears streaming down my face that I viewed the incredible tribute to your son. I have never seen such an honor paid to an individual--you did an phenomenal job. I cannot begin to fathom the excruciating heartache and pain you, your family and friends, as well as David's friends continue to experience. I cannot attempt to even try to comprehend the depths of your loss of a child so full of life, smiles, promise, and an entire world ahead of him.
Although I lost my spouse at a young age I know from other parents who have lost children that while I grieve and will always grieve it is different and now with time joy has found its way inching back into my life.
Thank you for making this memorial website available to individuals outside your close circle. It makes me pause for a while, reflect on my good times, and hug my two Berner babies.

Other than the hair on the boy in the animations on "David's Senior Prom" page.......the likeness is pretty close; don't you think?
In memory of our boys.......

Just wanted to stop by, again on David's site. As I was looking around; I noticed some things that I wanted to add.
I added animations to the "About David" page and backgrounds to "Just David", "Young David", "Baby David", and "David's Senior Prom" pages.Also; I added a couple of prom animations to the end of the page.
I see that you have not made pages for David's 20th birthday (and his 21st coming this next month), and his 2nd angelversary. If you want to start them here; I will detail them for you.
Did I ever mention that David shares the same birthday as my step-daughter? January 16th. She was born in 1986.
Forever remembering and memorialising or sons.....
On behalf of the Caro family and friends, we are so sorry for your loss.
The Caro family lost their only Son, Anthony, who was only 17-years old back in July of this year in a car accident. The pain is still so very fresh, and though it seems just like yesterday, they are trying to pick up the peices.
May God blessed your family and friends and may David's memory stay alive forever and ever.

Thanks for stopping by and writing to me and Crawford.
I have been so down and depressed since this last Thursday night. Our dog, who just turned 15 this week, died. She was trained since she was a puppy, to never leave the yard. She never strayed. I let her out so that she could relieve herself at 10:45PM. She never came back.
We searched throughout the night until 2:30AM Friday morning. We continued to search all Friday up to it getting dark. Looking everywhere. Animal shelters.....everywhere. As I have done in the past when I need help or answers; I have gone over to Crawford's grave and talked to him. As I said; it was getting dark and when I returned home; I told my wife that I was going to go out to look for her one more time. I had asked Crawford to help me find her either dead or alive. I just had to know.
I started walking the woods behind our housing addition. I walked and walked for a 1/4 of a mile along the woods line. I was given a sign.......footsteps going through the leaves. I walked straight into the woods to where I heard the footsteps. I shined my flashlight all around and saw nothing, heard nothing. I then walked straight to the edge where it dropped down to a creek. There, floating straight in front of me was our dog.
I ran back home, got my wife and some wadders to go into the creek. I took her from the creek and carried her home. I buried her yesterday. We are all alone, now. I believe that Crawford lead her down into the woods. She was sick with cancer, again and we would have had to put her down soon, anyway. Why else would she have gone into the woods so far away? She was almost blind and she was totally deaf. She is missed greatly.
This is the 3rd time that I asked Crawford to dearly help me in my time of need. I don't ask otherwise. He's always is with me.
I have added the background back to this guestbook page. As the comments accummulate upon the page; the code is pushed down until it add another page to the guestbook. When it does it again; just let me know and I will replace it.
Rhonda as I read these pages with tears in my eyes, I am so sorry for your loss, and am so touched by you and your family. I feel like I know David through this and know his memory will live on forever. My heart breaks for your family and I send my prayers, hugs and love to you!! may David forever R.I.P. he will never be forgotten and I am glad his wonderful memory lives on through all of you. He was an extraordinary young man! God Bless!

Davids Memorial my heart hurts. We lost my best friend in jan 2010 right before her 21st bday... she was shot and killed by her fiance. she was missing for 2 weeks. and then her fiance was on the news. a 3 hr stand off as he tried to steal a car. he shot himself. after 2 weeks someone moved jellis body so that the police would find her. its heartbreaking everyday and it doesnt seem to get easier. but i know that such a wonderful person is now such a wonderful angel. watching over all his loved ones everyday.

I stumbled upon David's memorial through Facebook, and although I never knew him or your family I just wanted to let you know that I am so sorry for your loss and even though I can not fathom what you and your family must have and still be going through I just want to let you know that you and David are in my prayers. This is an amazing memorial page and although I found you and your family as a stranger I leave this page feeling touched by your story and the incredible strength of your family. RIP David, God Bless you and your family.

I know that you are having a great turnout for David's 2nd angelversary. There are so many people that love him and miss him.
You've gotten by the worst year.....the 2nd year. The 3rd year is a little easier and then the 4th.....well....really...none of them are good. You just have to live with it and do your best to keep David's memory alive.
Helping to keep David's memory alive on this special day.......2 years after he went to heaven. Thinking of you and your family today as you honor David.
With only memories left of our boys.......

I know it is hard to believe that it has been 2 years since your precious David went to be with the Lord. I wanted to try and come up with something to say to bring some comfort to your heart but I know that it just hard, plain and simple. I hope that David and Brandon are planning the best game today. Please know that you are in my thoughts and prayers. God Bless
Happy Angel day in Heaven David, send your mom a special sign today.

I want to start by saying I am so sorry for your loss. I don’t know how I came across David's memorial but I am truly happy I did. He sounds like a remarkable young man and all the pictures are wonderful and I’m sure are great memories. I wanted to let you know this memorial moved me in so many ways; I lost my brother Nathan George back in May of ’09 he was only 27 years old. Nathan was also a baseball player and a pitcher, baseball was Nathans life. Looking at your memorial my brother and David had a few things in common and I guess it touched a little close to home. We have a Memorial Softball Classic in Nathans name every year to raise funds for a scholarship in his name as well as keeping the sports in schools. We will never understand why our loved ones, as amazing as they are, have been taken so early. It’s amazing what your family and his friends are doing in his honor it truly is a great way to keep his memory alive. God Bless you and your family, and if ever you need someone to talk to you, it helps me more to speak to someone I do not know and let feelings out, feel free I have a memorial page for Nathan stop by leave a note. RIP David, I didn’t know you before I looked at your memorial but I am leaving like I did.

Just had to put a "special" 3D animation across the top of David's 1st page.
If you don't like anything that I have done and you want it erased; just let me know and I will take it off. I won't be hurt. It just may not be what you want on that page. Oh....I added a couple more animations on a few pages. If you want a certain one on a page and I have it; just ask.
In our sons memories.......

I never knew your son but can tell from here what an amazing young man your son was. He looked so happy in all of the photos. From one bereaved mom to another, I am so sorry you are apart.

Thank you for visiting Crawford's guestbook here on the 11th. As you may know; that is the day that I feel should be used as his actual deathdate instead of the 12th. He was braindead on the 11th at 3:09AM. Each year, I go out to his gravesite on the 11th at 3:09AM and release 3 light blue balloons for him. We all gather on the 12th and release more as a family and friends gathering. I also recognized your postings on his FB event.
I am just responding to all the comments left for his 4th angelversary event on Facebook, posts left on my wall, and the comments left here on VM. I had over 600 comments left on all 3. I couldn't respond to all of them on FB; and sent out a group message; but, I wanted to write everyone back personally here on VM....I feel as though all of you are family.
David reminds me so much of my son Curtis! Both loved baseball and had beautiful smiles. They probably are playing baseball in heaven together. This is such a nice memorial page for him. Hugs and love to you and your family!
