Hey uncle, it's been a while since I've stopped by to tell you I love you and miss you. I know youre still here with me. Every day I take a few minutes to sit outside, look up at the stars and talk to you. It's always on the nights that the aor is still that when I feel a gust of wind so sudden, that seems to last longer than it really does that lets me know you're still watching over us all. Please dont ever stop being there for us. We all love and miss you so much. I can't tell you how bad i wish my Brantley Nicole could get to meet you but part of me feels like you're taking care of her too. I love you so much ! I can't wait to see you again on the other side. ❀❀❀❀ my guardian angel

Tomorrow is the end of another year without you. We still see you in your children and the photos we have of you, but you are missed every day and loved more than you could have ever known. On January 14th, you would have been 37. Too soon gone. I will think of you that day as I think of you every day and the tears will come. I can only pray that you are at peace. Visit sweet boy please. I look for you in my dreams.

Yesterday I took Jasmine a b-day gift and took her and the boys to Chuck E Cheese. They always talk about you, especially Jasmine. She told me she had one dream about you where you were a giant. She said you protected all of those you loved by putting them in your pockets. Such a sweet and beautiful dream. It's one of the first things that has made me feel a little better. I like imagining you as the gentle giant you were protecting all of us left behind. I love you baby boy and will miss you every minute til I see you again.

Dear Jeff: Today is your birthday and I want to hug you or sing a silly song or anything that would mean that you are still here. I want you to pick me up or laugh at my haicut or do any of the little things you did to aggravate. It has been 3 1/2 years, but I don't think my heart has accepted it yet. I miss you more than words can describe. Sending my love to you today and forever.

We laid your Grandma Bessie to rest on Tuesday. She had suffered with Alzheimers for some time and her passing, at least, was peaceful. Now you are with Grandpa, Grandma and Uncle Ronnie. I miss you all so much and look forward to the day I can see you again. I love you baby boy with all my heart.

May 5th, 2011
Today is my birthday and I wonder why I'm still having them and you're gone. This time next year I will be twice the age you were when we lost you. It's so unfair. Every day is painful with the loss of my baby boy. I miss you so much sweet boy. I couldn't have you with me today, but maybe you'll visit my dreams tonight - please.
Linda Burnette (Mama)
April 15th, 2011
Stopped by to light a candle. I can't seem to do enough to ease this pain. I miss you baby boy and I love you as only a mama can. There are no words to tell you how sorry I am for all I did and all I didn't do when I had the chance.

If we could have a lifetime wish
A dream that would come true,
We'd pray to God with all our hearts
For yesterday and You.
A thousand words can't bring you back
We know because we've tried...
Neither will a thousand tears
We know because we've cried...
You left behind our broken hearts
And happy memories too...
But we never wanted memories
We only wanted You.
Linda Burnette (Mama)

I'm lighting this candle for my sweet boy, lost too early and missed so very much. Lots of stuff going on here. Your sister is having a hard time. I wish you could talk to her. Maybe you could say something that I haven't or don't know how to say. She's doing well in school and I hope nothing interferes with that. Scott, too, is doing well and is alcohol free for 9 months now. We all miss you baby.

i remember, when i was real young. i came to visit my dad for a few days and rather than go to chuck-e-cheese or something we usually did. he took me , hunter, zacky, and jasmine out. got us all dressed up so we looked really nice. and waited in the store for a good hour or two to get a portrait done. it amazes me, thinking back, at how dedicated he was to getting that done. although it felt like a pain then, im happy to have it now. the picture is as nice as it ever was. And i know daddy has a copy in heaven with him.
James Burnette Jr. (Son)
September 11th, 2010
Sweet boy, it's been too long since I was here. I'm sure you know all that's happened and you know I don't have the ability to visit like I did. Still you are always in my heart and in my thoughts. I miss you more every day. I see you in the kids and I wish so much you were still here to share in their lives. I will visit whenever I can baby. I love you.
Linda Burnette (Mama)
August 28th, 2010
Dear Dad,
I miss you more than i can put into words. i dream about you sometimes, and write them down as often as i can remember them. I hope your having fun in heaven. I have to remind myself thats where you are, because sometimes I'll see you over my shoulder, or on the street. But everytime i look again, your gone. Thank you for continuing to watch over all of us. it brings great comfort to me, knowing your still being the best dad you can. And, if you ask me, your the greatest of them all. Good-night daddy

August 14th, 2010
Sweet boy, I dreamed about you last night for the first time in months. I put my hands on your precious face, but I couldn't speak. I'm thankful for the visit, brief though it was. Dreams can seem so real and for just a short time you are with me again. I'm putting this candle on your wall to commemorate the visit. Please visit my dreams often. I miss you baby, more than words can express.
Linda Burnette (Mama)
August 9th, 2010
Sweet boy, I stop by often just to see your sweet face. I love that old school photo with the double image. You look so adorable. I miss you every minute of every day. Thoughts of you pop up at odd moments and most often bring tears. Memories of loved ones lost are so bittersweet. I wish so much that you would visit me in my dreams. There I could maybe hear your voice again. I hear echos of it in my mind, but it's not the same. I love you baby boy. Someday hopefully I'll see you again.

Happy Easter baby. All the kids have been together this weekend for the first time in ages. Your little ones talk about you a lot, especially little Dillon. I guess I expected him to say the least but he clearly misses his daddy very much. They're beautiful children, Jeff, and you would be proud of them. I don't know how you could leave them, but I guess the pain must have been unbearable. I miss you every minute of every day baby boy and I know it'll never end for me. I want to see you smile and hear you laugh. I even miss the teasing you gave me. I hope this Easter you're at least at rest. I love you.

Wanted to tell you something that happened yesterday. I took little Dillon and Jasmine with me to pick up Hunter & Jamie at the library. Dillon, at age 4, reached for the gear shift and "helped" me shift gears. It was like having you beside me again as a child. I've told people about you learning to drive by that method and it brought me to tears because Dillon is clearly so much like you. Jamie played with his younger brothers & sister like you used to -- on the floor letting them climb all over him and loving it. You were very near all weekend -- just not near enough. I miss you baby and I love you.

I miss you. I won't cry because I know you're okay in heaven. We all love you and wish you were here with us. Love you, daddy.

February 6th, 2010
I see your sweet face in the photos I treasure and I long to hear your voice again. Your laugh was wonderful. You were such a tease and could make anyone forget that they were angry at you with just your smile. We all miss you baby. The passing days do not make the pain any less or any easier to deal with. I pray that you are at peace and happy now and that you are watching over us. I love you.
Linda Burnette (Mama)
January 28th, 2010
Every day is difficult without you baby boy. You had a way of making even the bad days better for others. Yet you were hurting and didn't let us know how bad. Or maybe we just didn't want to see it. If we could have another chance maybe we could make it better for you.I miss you, Jeff, with all my heart. Loving you always -- Mama

December 25th, 2009
This was our second Christmas without you, and it wasn't any easier. I will never get used to the idea that you are gone. I keep thinking I'll wake up or someone will say it was just a joke. I got to talk to the kids for just a minute. I'm praying that that will change. Maybe you can help out with that. I miss you baby every day. I will never stop loving you. You are and always will be my baby boy.

I'm so sorry I didn't stop by last night. Some nights, here alone, I just can't seem to cope with seeing your sweet face on a web page and knowing that photos are all I have now. No one can prepare a mother for the loss of a child. I miss you every day, every minute and with every part of my heart and soul. It's hard to talk to anyone about you because they don't understand. Your sister thinks it means I don't love her as much and your brother gets too upset himself. Shirley tries, but I think she gets annoyed with me too because of the way it affects the family. I love you baby boy, and I wish I had known the right things to do and say. Now it's too late and all I can do is wonder.
Linda Burnette (Mama)
November 7th, 2009
Sweet boy, there are so many things I wish I could say to you. I would put my arms around you and never let go. You've missed so much already with your kids and there will be many more occasions when your absence will be painful for all of us. I love you with all my heart baby.

October 11th, 2009
Jeff, we love and miss you. I believe that you are happy in a beautiful place where, as the old hymn puts it, the soul of man never dies. "Then weep not, weep not dear ones; God wipes away all tears. 'Tis only a little while, though you many call it years." We'll see you in a little while, Jeff. Look for us.

I woke up this morning thinking of you as usual and feeling the pain of loss. I miss your teasing and that great smile. I miss your voice and your huge heart. I miss all the things that will never be shared now and I wish I could see you again. I love you baby - forever.

Jasmine told me today about watching the 4th of July fireworks. She said she was looking at all the stars and they were following her and she thought she saw her daddy. I told her I was sure that you were there watching over her. Please continue to let them feel you near them. They're great kids.

I wish with all my heart that I could have had more time with you. Nothing will ever erase the pain of your loss, but nothing can erase your sweet memory either. I have to force my mind away from the pain or I sometimes feel that I can't survive it. You were and are my sunshine, my baby, my sweet boy. I miss you more than you could have ever imagined.

It's so very hard to understand
why our child is taken,
leaving a Mom and Dad behind
with hearts so badly aching.

There are so many things in life
that no one really understands.
But the child you hold in your heart,
God now holds in His hands.

Cared for and nurtured by the Father,
he will grow and mature in His love,
while angels guide and protect him
in his Heavenly home up above.

They will tell him he was, oh, so special
to you both, in every way ~
as they spend countless hours preparing
for your reunion One Grand Day!

They will take him to the edges of Heaven
and let him look, often, down below
to see the Mom and Dad down here
that he didn't get enough time to know.

So as you gaze up into the sky,
know he's now in a Glorious place,
and maybe he's looking back to you ~
searching for a smile upon your face.

For I'm certain that in his little heart
it grieves him to see you so sad,
for he knows he had the very best ~
The world's greatest Mom and Dad!

My brother loved country music, he loved all sorts of music, but he was definitely a fan of country music. One song in particular that I will never, ever forget is Good Morning Beautiful. Jeff's two youngest children Zack and Jasmine loved to sing it for and to their daddy. Jeffrey would walk into the room and either start to sing the song himself or just ask the babies to sing him his song. Imagine the tiniest of voice singing, Goodmorning beautiful, how was your nigh-mine was wonderful with you by my side. It is a memory that I will carry with me always, the simplicity of the things that bring you so much happiness and joy is amazing.
