To my husband, Bill

The sky cried today
Tears of falling rain
I felt like I could also feel my pain
I knew that there would be a day
The sun would not shine
That on this day, you no longer be mine
Perhaps one star, one wish
Would bring you back
I knew in my mind and in my heart
There was loneliness and a lack
Of what use to be and no more
So go ahead rain drops
Let it cut down and let it pour
Love you, Bill
Brigitte

To Bill, My Husband

I'll love you forever
And I know one day we will be together
So will you wait for me and not go away?
Because I have to go on for a long time.

I know you will understand,
I'm in the pink now
And nothing matters but you
Thank you for the moments, the years,
All the laughter, even the tears.

I love you, Bill.
Your wife,
Bridget

Bill Gubbins

Bill, I hover eagerly for your love
Like a dove above
And, if I were to take flight into the night
I know I would take a special part of your heart with me
And you and I would be in constant unity
With the earth, the stars above
A constant keepsake of your love.
Love is an afterglow
The power to know how he is feeling
A candle burning in your heart
Knowing when you part
You will be together
Knowing throughout the day you will be thinking of him anyway
For the presence of the man
Is an enigma of your imagination

Love, Bridgit


Bill Gubbins

We're the same, you and I.
The power is ours, don't you see?
You are plentiful, I am strong.
And together the wind sings a wonderful song.
You are protective; I give in.
It's the pleasures in the heart; the beauty within.
Carry on, sing a love song. It won't be long. Fulfillment will come. We are not not done.
We will enjoy this earth. Plant our seed, and continue to reap the pleasures of living.

Lily Emma Olive Hall

Your life was short but the impact and meaning it's given to mine will last forever. I love you more than words can say. December 30th is your bday, every year we drop lilies in the ocean in White Rock where you were born. I miss you. Your dad misses you. Your brothers and sister remember you in their family portraits. We will hang your stocking as always and light your candle. Love Mom.

My lovely Hazel

You passed away too soon, at 28. But God must have a bigger purpose for you in Heaven. He gave me the perfect wife, let me feel the perfect love and care. Tomorrow will mark the first month after your passing, but I am confident you are happier in Heaven, away from evil, pain and struggle. You will always have a special place in my heart. Please prepare us a home in Heaven, and please wait for me because I will come see you soon! I miss your cooking and your soft touch! I will always love you wherever you are. -JK

Precious daughter, it has now been more than 5 years but feels as if I'm in a time warp - like yesterday. It's so hard to keep going without you, even with your brother, your family and your amazing friends who've stayed close. You would be so proud of them all. We get together for your Beach Birthday Party, your Christmas party and stay close all year, every year. So often, a yellow butterfly shows up when we're together, so rare, and we know it's you, as a gift from little Kaylah. All the little children you loved still miss and love you. Andrew, your brother, grieves silently every day, will only share it with me. My best friend, I miss laughing, dancing, singing, sharing, cuddling, walking arm in arm, driving with you. I take one breath at a time, one hour at a time, one day at a time to survive. You should never have been stolen, two weeks before university grad. My "job" now is working with other Moms, organizations and politicians to make sure someone like your ex never gets a gun licence in this country again!

Hard to believe it’s two years since you passed. I miss your smile, I miss your laugh, I miss the sound of your voice singing to me while playing your guitar. I miss your strength and the talks we had. It’s lonley here without you, you are alive in my heart forever and always💞

For Spencer

We miss you so so very much Spenny,
Time has passed and soon we will be pushed into a whole new year, a year that will be completely void of you because it will be the first year that we will never sweet your smile, or hear your voice or share a hug...how we miss you and cherish those moments.
At least last year will have had you in it even though for only a few short months. I love you so much. You will always be in my heart and on my mind.

For Timothy Joseph Smith

Tim it's Christmas and I wanted you to know that I miss your smile, your laugh, your singing and playing all those songs. I love you and look forward to seeing you again. I still look for you around the apartment and sometimes feel your presence, wish I could hug you one more time.
