More Memorials That I've Collected

by Jim Hoekzema
Jared Tyler January 7, 1997 ... April 2, 1997

Here are some more memorials that I've collected. Below are some poems by my brother Scott. He is 14 months younger than I am and lives here in Boca as well. He also has 2 kids Dillan who is 4 weeks older than Bryan and Cassie who is 1 month older than Jared (She is also my Goddaughter and I haven't been able to hold her yet - I will soon, but not until I'm ready) There is an image (digitized with Snappy and my Camcorder - neat toy) of a drawing by my youngest brother Doug (17 - one of my Godsons) he was at our house with my mom before the ambulance left and drew this in chalk that night. You should see the original it's incredible - we are having it framed and hanging it in the house.

If I Could Have Said It...

If I Could Have Said It,
It Would Have Come Straight From My Heart.

If I Could Have Said It,
I Would Have Said It From The Start.

If I Could Have Said It,
You Know It Would Have Been True.

If I Could Have Said It,
I Would Have Said "I Love You".

Short and sweet

although my life was short and sweet,
we had chance to meet.

I could not say much,
but I knew your touch.

you held me tight,
each and every night.

you gave me a smile,
that would last for miles.

like in the story of winnie the pooh,
you were my kanga and I was your roo.

the storm did not last,
but I sure had a blast.

I broke your heart,
when we had to part.

but there will always be,
you . . . . and me.

Hi Dad, It's Me

hi dad, it's me.
I know it's difficult to see.
it must be hard for you,
because I was so new.

life is not always fair,
no matter how hard you stare.
it was only meant to be,
a life so short for me.

you don't have to explain,
for I can see your pain.
the moments that we had,
I feel them make you sad.

although it seems so wrong,
I know that you are strong.
this is to you from me,
hi dad, it's me.

Angel In The Sky

Every Day And Every Night,
When You Feel The Need To Hold Me Tight.

Just Blow A Kiss Into The Sky,
For I Will Be That Close By.

In The Heavens Throughout The Day,
I Watch Over You And Hear You Pray.

I See You Smile And Shed A Tear,
For You Know That I'm Still Near.

I'm The Angel Of Your Eye,
Your Angel In The Sky.

Big Brother

Little Hands,
And Little Feet.

Toes That Bend,
And Fingers I Eat.

Although You May Not Understand,
Why You Cannot Hold My Hand.

You Blow Me Kisses Every Night,
While Mom And Dad Hold You Tight.

You Will Always Be,
So Special To Me.

For There Is No Other,
Your My Only ... Big Brother.
