It truly does not seem like it has been 5 Years since we last spoke, since we all last seen that smile, since we all last laughed at a joke. Time passes on, but the memories hold on, You Shall Never Be Forgotten

I miss you so much. The days seem to get harder as the holidays get closer I find myself feeling more and more lost and depressed. I know how much you enjoyed Thanksgiving and Christmas. I know that your always by my side and I'm thankful for your love and guidance. I love you baby.

The days have slowly turned into years.The thought of losing you still brings me to tears.I"ve asked a million times "WHY?" The good Lord took you to your home in the sky.I've tried so hard to be strong.And live my life as it must go on. As your Mom my heart is forever broken.I'm missing all the "I love you's" thats left unspoken.Even though you are gone. Your memories will FOREVER live on.
I love and miss you so very much .

My Dearest Michael, two yrs ago today ,God put me through a living hell.Seeing my baby that I watch take his first breathe,take his last.I lived through every moms nightmare.Even tho I'm still standing strong,my heart is forever broken..Lossing you prove to me nothing in life is fair,and sometimes no matter how hard you pray for something it's just not in God's plans..If prayers & love could have kept you here,I know I'd be with you today.Because I love you more than life itself and would have gladly taken your place.when I close my eyes I can still see your face and somedays I swear I hear your voice.I know your watching over me and giving me the strength to go on..The test God put in front of me of living my life without you...i know you had no doubt that I'd be strong enough to make it through,you always had more faith in me than I had in myself..I love you baby more than I have words to say..And I miss you more with every passing day..

As the days turn in to weeks, the weeks turn into months,As the months turn in to years.The pain and tears are still here.Your smile I can still see everytime I close my eyes.Yet I struggle so hard to hear your voice,longing to hear you say "Mama I love you and I'm not far away.Look up at the sky above and know without a doubt I'm always sending you my love. with every sunset,every star you see al...ways know that's my way of saying mama I'm ok..And thinking of you today...Michael you always believe in me and believe that I could do anything.The one thing I wanted to do more than anything was to save you that day.Even tho I know that was out of my hands .it hurt me so bad to let you go.Your memories will live on with me each and everyday.Because I'm the one you believe in and trusted more than life. I'll keep you here with me until my dying day.Until the day were together again you life on inside of me,Maybe that's the way God planned it to be..I love & miss you..

Sixteen months ago today God took you away in an instant you were gone.And I was left here to carry on. I part of me went with you and the other part stayed behind to keep the memories of you alive..I miss you more than words can say.
My promise to you I'm trying to keep.I'm being strong and taking care of everyone ,I know that your sitting in heaven watching over me as my life moves on,I know I'm never really alone ,your always by my side..Catching me before I fall,like you've always done..Your my strength then and now..And I know with out a doubt your keeping me a place next to you for me to spend eternity..I love you baby..

I know that my son has passed away
But I will love him until my dying day.
So please listen to my memories every now and then
Family and friends, please allow me to talk about him.
His hair was blonde, his eyes were blue.
... ... He never left without saying I love you.
He never caused me any pain,
With his life I had everything to gain.
I gained from him even in death
He brought me to God and there is no greater wealth.
Yes, for my son there could be no other
I thank God for choosing me to be his Mother.
I love & miss you so very much Michael!!!

Dear Michael,
I was just thinking about you today. I love you and miss you. We went to FL about a month ago. Almost all the cousins were at the park for Justin's birthday! I know you would have enjoyed being there seeing all the kids running around. Maybe you were there, smiling down at everyone. Just know that you are missed!

Michael, a year ago today, we laid you to rest. This was the second worst day in my life. Time has flown by since you went away, but my love has not changed. My heart still aches, and I think about you often. I only ask that you continue to watch over us from heaven. Til I see you again baby boy, Loving You Always!
David Stegall (Best Friend (boyfriend))
June 1st, 2011
Michael,As you know today the day my heart was broken for ever.There's so many things I wanted to say to you,so many things we had left to do & so MANY MORE I LOVE YOU'S!! I'm trying my hardest to keep my head held high & being strong like you always thought I was.This heartache seems to get worse as time goes by,sometimes all I want ...to do is just lay down and die.But I remember your smile & those big blue eyes and I know I can't let you down,for you have more faith in me than I do in myself.And for that very reason I must carry on,and keep your memories alive.Every heart that you have touched I know they feel blessed to have known a true angel here on earth.You left your mark on all OUR HEARTS and forevers where you'll stay.For as your mother I can promise this your memories will live on as long as there's a breath in me I'll keep it going strong.
Enjoy your 1st Angelversary in heaven,and look down on us today and smile as your memory lives on~Watch for all your balloons flying high as we send them with love. I love you Baby always & foevever..

Michael,

It hard to believe it has already been a year since you left this world behind to start a brand new adventure. I know you are better off, but you are missed dearly by so many. Yet, I know that you are watching over each and everyone of us, saying it is okay.
Melody Adkins (family friend)
May 28th, 2011
Michael, it was a year ago today that I last had a chance to talk to you as you lay in the hospital. I held your hand and promised it would be ok. Little did I know at that moment that God had other plans. I spent the next two days there at the hospital with you, thinking you would be ok and come home. Home you did go, but it was to heaven. There was so much I had planned for us, so many things to do, so many memories to make. My heart broke that solemn day, May 29, 2010. It has not healed since. I miss you, and I Love you so very much. I know my day shall come and when I am reunited with you, then my heart shall be whole once more. Loving You Always Michael, Always!
David Stegall (Best Friend (boyfriend))
May 27th, 2011
A year ago today was the last time I heard your voice & looked into those beautiful blue eyes. I never thought for one second that it would truly be the last time.I have so much more I needed to say to you.And I needed to hear you say one more time "Mama I love you."As you did a dozen times each day. Todays the day this heartache started,and never has it went away.All I can do now is hold on tight to the memories of you.And pray to God to keep you close by his side,until the day that we're together again..I love & miss you more than words can say.

May 24, 2011 marks what would have been our 2nd Year together. Although you are not here physically, I know you are still with us in spirit as you watch over us from heaven above. Michael, May 24, 2009 was the happiest day of my life. Meeting you and being a part of your life was so uplifting and perfect. Mere words can never explain the true love I had for you and shared with you. Even though you were called back home to Heaven on May 29, 2010, I shall always celebrate the 24th as "our" anniversary. It is an important day in my life, and I shall never lose the memories we had. You shall always hold that special place in my heart. Til I see you again Michael, Happy Anniversary!!
With Love,
David

You are my son, a part of me, and that will never change,
No matter what you do in life my love will still remain.
I held you as a baby and I looked into your face,
And I knew then, no other one could ever take your place.
I knew then as I held you, you would grow to be a man,
And anything you did in life I’d try to understand.
I knew you would make choices and would follow your own heart,
I only prayed that in your life I’d always have a part.
I knew some things you did in life would give me so much pride,
But also realized some things would tear me up inside.
I only want the best for you and want you to succeed,
And want you to find happiness with everything you need.
I can only guide you and give you a helping hand,
You will choose the path to take now that you are a man.
Along the road that you will choose, whatever that may be,
Just remember this my son that you can count on me.
I will not try to push you to live life in my own stride,
I only promise I will love you and stand by your side.
I know that you will make mistakes and life is full of them,
But realize my love for you will not let me condemn.
I know this life's not perfect and we do the best we can,
Just realize I love you and I’ll always understand.
I knew one day you would grow up and you would leave my nest,
I will do what I can for you and let God do the rest.
I have held you in my arms and done the best I can,
Now I pray that God will hold you now that you're a man.
Just remember in my heart you are a special one,
And I will always proudly tell the world, "this is my son."

Rest In Peace My Son Until we meet again!!
I love & miss you more than words can say!!

Dear Michael,I wish I could hold your hand just one more time.And hear you say I love you mama and everythings gonna be okay..I try so hard to be strong because I know that's what you expect out of me.But some days it's hard to put on this smile and face another day. I look to the sky and some how I know I'll be okay ,because my ...angel is smiling down on me today.I love you baby more than I can say.Just know your thought of every second of everyday.R.I.P.

Remember Me

To the living, I am gone
To the sorrowful, I will never return
To the angry, I was cheated
But, to the happy, I am at peace
And to the faithful, I have never left
I can not speak, but I can listen
I can not be seen, but I can be heard
So as you stand upon the shore
Gazing at the beautiful sea, remember me
As you look in awe at a mighty forest
And its grand majesty, remember me
Remember me in your hearts,
In your thoughts, and the memories of the
Times we loved, the times we cried, the
Battle I fought and the times we laughed
For if you always think of me, I will
Have never gone.

I Wanted You To Know......

I Was Sitting Here In Heaven
And Having A Wonderful Day.
I Started Thinking About You
...And All The Things I Didn’t Get A Chance To Say.
I Don’t Want You To Worry About Me
And Please Don’t Shed Any Tears,
Because I Will Wait For You In Heaven,
If It Takes A Hundred Years.
Everything I Had On Earth
I Have In Heaven Too!
My First Day Here
My Body Became Brand New.
It Is Really Pretty Here
And I Love My New Home,
Although Your Heart Is Broken
Because My Body Is Gone.
My Love Will Always Be There
As You Go Along The Way,
Just Take A Peek Inside Your Heart
There Is Where I’ll Stay.
Know That I Loved My Family
And All My Friends Too,
My Thoughts Will Be With Each Of You
Your Whole Life Through

My Mom doesn't know I'm watching her
but I'm watching her just the same.
And I hear each tear fall on her face
at the very mention of my name.
She says it sounds like music to her ears
and can be heard over a crowd.
Oh, I hear each tear fall on her face
when my name is said aloud.
I watch her stumble through each day
as she wishes the day would end.
And I hear each tear fall on her face
as she talks of me to her friends.
But there are few who truly understand
Oh this I've heard her proclaim.
And I hear each tear fall on her face
Will my Mom ever be the same?
I know that her smiles light up a sky
But, I don't see that smile today.
Oh, but I hear each tear fall on her face.
Her blue skies turned to gray.
Oh, I send to her my warmest hug
with the rays of the morning sun.
Then, I won't hear a tear fall on her face
For I shall erase them one by one.
Yes, my Mom doesn't know I'm watching her.
But I'm watching her just the same.
And if I hear a tear fall on her face
I'll just softly whisper her name!

No one will ever know how much I miss you!!

I do not need a special day to bring you to my mind. I think of you each and every day.
Each morning when I awake to an empty bed, I am reminded that you are gone.
And no one knows the heartache or the pain I feel as I push forward and carryon.
My heart still aches with sadness and secret tears still flow.
What it meant to lose you no one will ever know nor be able to ever understand truly the Love i felt for you.
My thoughts are always with you, your place no one can fill.
In life I loved you dearly; in death I love you still. For our love shall always prevail, even death cannot end the love we shared.
Til the day I am laid by your side, I shall always hold you dear in my heart. On the day I reunite with you, I will hold your dearly with my soul.
Loving You always Michael.

I do not need a special day to bring you to my mind.
The days I do not think of you are very hard to find.
Each morning when I awake I know that you are gone.
And no one knows the heartache as I try to carry on.
My heart still aches with sadness and secret tears still flow.
What it meant to lose you no one will ever know.
My thoughts are always with you, your place no one can fill.
In life I loved you dearly; in death I love you still.

I love you so very much Rest In Peace My Baby!!!

Michael,I love you so very much.As it comes close to the day you were called home,my heart seems to ache more..It's so hard for me to believe that it's almost been a year since I seen your big smile or heard your voice..My life has been so diffrent without you.I think back to when you were small and how much you loved life always living it to the fullest..And I think back on the young man who told me "mama,I need to go to louisanna and live on my own, I'll be okay I have you in me don't I? "I remember how hard it was for me to let you go.You called me everyday a dozen times just to say you loved me and to see if I was ok..That year seem like a life time..The day you told me you were ready to come home I couldn't get there fast enough..I realized that you felt like you had grown up so much in that year,but to me you were still my mama's boy..I know now that was my first test of being without you.God tested us both that year.now he's testing my faith..I know without a doubt that we will be together again,in Gods Time.I love you Baby more than you'll ever know.
Save me a place right beside you.I'll see you again..

When you died, my life felt as if it had ended.
My world came crashing in on me. I see you everywhere I look, and even see you in my dreams. It has almost been a year since we lost you, the longest year of my life. At times it seems like only just yesterday I would come home and be with you. Make our trips to Lowes and grab a bite to eat. But now, I only come home to an empty house. My memories of you are still strong. I shall never forget the life and times we shared. My life was complete, having you in it. But then God chose to take you back home. I felt lost and alone in the beginning. But when I looked up, our family was there for me, and I felt blessed once more.
As time moves on, I shall never lose the love I had with you, for love is stronger than death and our love shall prevail.
I know if its meant to be, another may stand by my side. But in then end when it is my time, it is by your side I shall lay once more, in everlasting peace.
Michael Ray Tetstone, I forever shall Love You!

Michael, As another holiday comes around, I find myself missing you more and more..I think about when you were a small boy and how you loved looking for easter eggs..To last year as a young man you enjoyed watching the small kids look for their eggs..As Raishell and I filled the plastic eggs you and David bought me last year.I remembe...r you saying "next year we'll have plenty of eggs mama"
You were always thinking ahead,I guess you got that from me..But little did we both know that ,God had other plans for you and that we wouldn't have another Easter here on earth together..I know your happy and that's all that matters to me..Enjoy your front row seat watching all the kids searching for their eggs tomorrow..Oh yeah,Keep close to Chainberlin tomorrow help her find her eaggs..

Michael, every day I think of you, and every night I dream of you. You were the first true love I had in my life. As time moves forward, my love for you shall never fade and regardless of where I go from here, the day that I breath my final breathe, I shall lay by your side once more.

I saw this and thought of you Baby Boo...
Do not stand at my grave and weep... I am not there, for I do not sleep...
I am a thousand winds that blow... I am the diamond glints in the winter snow...
I am the sunlight on ripened grain... I am the gentle autumn rain...
Do not stand at my grave and mourn...
...I am the dew-flecked grass at dawn... I am where the tranquil oceans meet the land... I am the footprints in the sand, to guide you through the weary day...
I am still here, I will always stay...
When you awake to the morning's hush... I am the swift uplifting rush of quiet birds in circled flight... I am the stars that shine at night...
Do not stand at my grave and cry...
I am not there... I did not die....
Michael, I Love You Forever and Always.

Michael Ray,
There is not a minute that goes by that i don't think of you.. I miss you soo much. Everyone keeps saying that in time it will get better... but it really just keeps getting worse.. I carry a picture of you in my heart.. every song that comes on the radio reminds me of you. i hide my feelings . i stay strong for mama. y...ou dont have to worry about her im taking care of her just like you would. you were the best big brother/friend anyone could ever ask for. you were there for people no matter what! you were a very forgiving person.. someone could make you mad and 5 mins later you were over it. I wish i could be more like you were. I looked upto you.&& i still do.. one day when i make something of myself & become sucessful I dedicate it to you.. Knowing that you would be so proud of me for all the accomplishments i've made gives me courage to do more. I love && miss you sooo much♥ R.I.P

I Hear Each Tear Fall On Her Face

My Mom doesn't know I'm watching her
but I'm watching her just the same.
And I hear each tear fall on her face
at the very mention of my name.

She says it sounds like music to her ears
and can be heard over a crowd.
Oh, I hear each tear fall on her face
when my name is said aloud.

I watch her stumble through each day
as she wishes the day would end.
And I hear each tear fall on her face
as she talks of me to her friends.

But there are few who truly understand
Oh this I've heard her proclaim.
And I hear each tear fall on her face
Will my Mom ever be the same?

I know that her smiles light up a sky
But, I don't see that smile today.
Oh, but I hear each tear fall on her face.
Her blue skies turned to gray.

Oh, I send to her my warmest hug
with the rays of the morning sun.
Then, I won't hear a tear fall on her face
For I shall erase them one by one.

Yes, my Mom doesn't know I'm watching her.
But I'm watching her just the same.
And if I hear a tear fall on her face
I'll just softly whisper her name!

Sometimes life just isn't fair. The ones you love the most are taken away without reason. I pray for understanding, but it is without answer.

Michael, as the New Year approaches, I am so wishing you were here to celebrate it with me. I loved the life we had, and knew I wanted to be with you forever. God had a different plan and took you back. Although that cannot interfere with me being with you forever, for one day I shall be called back too. Til then though, I struggle fo...rward. Words cannot explain how upside down my life became without you. I Love You, I Miss You. Each night when I go to bed, I hold Mimi and cry. She misses you too and is always there to cuddle. As the new year begins boo, I will continue on with our plans, as I can, to work on the house and make it what we, together, had talked about it being. Please guide me forward and help me through the new year. I know that you may not be here in mortal form, I know and feel you here in spirit. I Love You Michael. Always.

Somewhere in my dreams tonight, I will see you standing there, You look at me with a smile, "Life isn't always fair". You say you were chosen for his garden. His preciously hand picked bouquet. "God really needed me, That's why I couldn't stay". It's said to be that angels are sent from above. But, I met my angel here, My Michael, whose heart was filled with love. When ever I see the sun rise, I will recall the memories of you and I. When I look up at that sky so blue, I will only see visions of you. While there is a beating heart in me, a part of me you will always be.

A Christmas Message Michael would give....
I see the countless Christmas trees, around the world, lit up with their warm glow. The sight is so spectacular, so please wipe away that tear, for I'm spending Christmas in Heaven this year. I hear the many Christmas songs that people hold so dear, but the sounds of music cannot compare with ...the Christmas choir up here. For I have no words to tell you, the joy their voice brings, for its beyond description to hear an angel sing. I can't tell you the splendor or the peace here in Heaven, can you just imagine the gloryness of this place. I will ask God to light your spirit, as I tell him of your love. So pray for one another as you lift your eyes above. Please let your hearts be joyful, and shed not a tear for me, for I am spending Christmas in Heaven this year.
David Stegall (boyfriend)
December 23rd, 2010
Mom, tomorrow I will be there
Though you may not see
I'll smile and remember
The last Christmas, with you and me
Don't be sad mom
I'm never far away
Your heart has hidden sight
My memory will always stay
I watched as you touched the ornaments
Sometimes a tear was shed as you did
I touched you gently on your shoulder
And on tiptoes I proudly stood
I'm only gone for a little while mom
I'm waiting for the day to be
When God calls out your name mom
We'll be together, just you wait and see
But until that time comes
Carry on as you did when I was there
I tell the angels how much I love you
There are angels here everywhere!
I stand behind you some days
When I know that you are sad
I want you to be happy mom
It would make my heart so glad
So on this Christmas Eve, Mom
Think of me as I will be thinking of you
And touch that special ornament
That I once made for you
I love you mom , also
I know you know I do
And I'll be waiting here for you
When your earthly life is through
Love,
Your child in Heaven,Michael

On March 10, 1989, the Angels sang, as an Angel was born upon the earth. This angel led an innocent life, giving unto others more than he did for himself. Throughout his life, he took care of everyone that needed him. He had a heart of gold and touched everyone who knew him with unconditional love. The world had never had such a person walk upon it in modern times. During the 21 years this Angel spent amongst us, he spent his life helping everyone he could. Though this Angel was called back home on May 29, 2010, we still have his love and the warmth of his touch that he bestowed upon everyone that knew him. Michael Ray Tetstone, you are Loved, Missed and thought of every second of everyday! Love you my Boo!

Michael, there's a special place in my heart that only you can touch, a place where I can go and feel you near. Throughout the day I think of you. I see your smile, hear your voice and in my thoughts you lovingly appear. The way we love each other makes it hard to be apart so even though I can no longer hold you in my arms, I hold you in my heart, forever more! I Love You Michael and miss you more than anyone will ever know!

Dearest Michael,
I see your precious Mother and sister often at work. Your Mom came to where I live yesterday with gifts from you. You are looking out for your friends and loved ones. Sometimes, I will be driving near your house and will look in my rear view mirror for you to be waving at me. Sometimes, someone will be talking to Alli at work at customer service, and I will think, "Michael!" And wish that it were you. I remember when you, your Mom and sister helped us move and then you came to visit me and just talk. Michael, you are so full of love and concern about those you care for, you are the kindest and most sincere person I have ever known. I miss you! So much!
Michael, if you happen to see my sister Peggy in heaven, will you give her a hug for me, please? She would love you too.
Love, Pat

Whispers from Heaven

They say that life is fleeting
I know that this is true
I left this world so quickly
With no goodbye to you.

I know how much you miss me
Your tears fall ever light
The pillow where you lay your head
Is wet with them at night.

I know your heart is hurting
The words we left, unsaid
I love you’s, left unspoken
Are spinning in your head.

The strength that I have carried
That served to make you whole
Remains to make you stronger
Within your grieving soul.

For you see, while you were weeping
On the day I passed away
At the gravesite near the flowers
Where my loved ones knelt to pray.

An angel came to see me
She took me by the hand
She led me to a kingdom
In a very distant land.

As I look down from heaven
And see you standing there
Your heart so ever burdened
With more grief than it can bear.

I long to bring you comfort
I long to give you peace
I long to hold you closely
Cause all your tears to cease.

The joy I’ve found in heaven
Goes far beyond compare
The love that’s so elusive
Can be found here everywhere.

The light is softly shining
There’s no storm clouds here or rain
There’s no teardrops found in heaven
There’s no suffering, there’s no pain.

You needn’t be so troubled
Stay close to God and pray
That someday we’ll be together
One bright and glorious day.

So my love, you shouldn’t question
My dear you need not cry
I’ve gone to be with Jesus
I really didn’t die.

Fading In The Twinkling Of An Eye
Gone Too Soon
Shiny And Sparkly
And Splendidly Bright
Here One Day
Gone One Night
Like The Loss Of Sunlight
On A Cloudy Afternoon
Gone Too Soon
Like A Castle
Built Upon A Sandy Beach
Gone Too Soon
Like A Perfect Flower
That Is Just Beyond Your Reach
Gone Too Soon
Born To Amuse, To Inspire, To Delight
Here One Day
Gone One Night
Like A Sunset
Dying With The Rising Of The Moon
Gone Too Soon

I will not say since you left, because you have not left us, you have just moved on to a better place awaiting our calling til we are reunited again. I Love You Michael, and although I know I will see you again, the here and now is the hard part that I must endure until that time. Me, momma, Raishell and Mimi all miss and Love You Baby Boy.

Precious Son

I Wish I Could See You One More Time
Come Walking Through My Door
But, I Know That Is Impossible
I Will Hear Your Voice No More
I Know You Can Feel My Tears
And You Don’t Want Me To Cry
Yet, My Heart Is Broken
Because I Can’t Understand Why
Someone So Precious Had To Die
I Pray That God Will Give Me Strength
And Somehow Get Me Through
As I Struggle With This Heartache
That Was Caused By Losing You
I LOVE AND MISS YOU MICHAEL

I Wanted You To Know......
I Was Sitting Here In Heaven
And Having A Wonderful Day.
I Started Thinking About You
And All The Things I Didn’t Get A Chance To Say.
I Don’t Want You To Worry About Me
And Please Don’t Shed Any Tears,
Because I Will Wait For You In Heaven,
If It Takes A Hundred Years.
Everything I Had On Earth
I Have In Heaven Too!
My First Day Here
My Body Became Brand New.
It Is Really Pretty Here
And I Love My New Home,
Although Your Heart Is Broken
Because My Body Is Gone.
My Love Will Always Be There
As You Go Along The Way,
Just Take A Peek Inside Your Heart
There Is Where I’ll Stay.
Know That I Loved My Family
And All My Friends Too,
My Thoughts Will Be With Each Of You
Your Whole Life Through

"I'll lend you for a little time a child of Mine," He said.
"For you to love the while he lives
And mourn for when he's dead.
It may be six or seven years, or twenty two or three,
But will you, till I call him back,
Take care of him for Me?He'll bring his charms to gladden you,
And shall his stay be brief,
You'll have his lovely memories as solace for your grief.

I cannot promise he will stay, since all from earth return
But there are lessons taught down there
I want this child to learn.
I've looked the wide world over
In my search for teachers true
And from the throngs that crowd life's lanes
I have selected you.
Now will you give him all your love,
Nor think the labor vain,
Nor hate me when I come to call to take him back again?

I fancied that I heard them say: "Dear Lord, Thy will be done!
For all the joy thy child shall bring,
The risk of grief we'll run.
We'll shelter him with tenderness, we'll love him while we may,
And for the happiness we've known
Forever grateful stay;
But shall the angels call for him much sooner than we've planned

We'll brave the bitter grief that comes

An Angel came to me one day and asked why I was sad. I told him that I had never found anyone who loved me for me, not for what I could do for them. I had a family who couldn't decide if I was family or not. This Angel reached out his hand and said come with me. I did. This Angel showed me Love that I had never known before. This Angel put me in with a family that Loved me as if I was their own. This Angel changed my life. Sadly tho, once his task was complete, this Angel returned to Heaven to await us. Michael, I miss you boo. I miss you more than words can say. You were an Angel who opened my eyes and lit up my life. I know I will one day see and hold you again, and that will be the second happiest moment ever for me! Love you always Michael! Rest in Peace my baby.

Michael, on May 24, 2009 my world lit up. That was the day I met you. From that moment, I knew I had found true love and planned for our future. I guess God had other plans though. He put you into my life to bring me into a family that loved me and cared for me. He allowed me the chance to enjoy y life with you for a year before he brought you home. Baby, I Love You, and wish we had more time together, but that was not our choice. I miss you so much and wonder how to carry on. Thank you for bringing me into your family, for your mom, me and Raishell lean on one another to make it through. Michael Ray Tetstone, I will ALWAYS Love you and cannot wait til the day I see you again.

He Only Took My Hand
(author unknown)
Last night while I was trying to sleep,
My son's voice I did hear
I opened my eyes and looked around,
But he did not appear.
He said:"Mom you've got to listen,
You've got to understand
God didn't take me from you, mom
He only took my hand.
When I called out in pain that night,
The instant that I died,
He reached down and took my hand,
And pulled me to His side.
He pulled me up and saved me
From the misery and pain.
My body was hurt so badly inside,
I could never be the same.
My search is really over now,
I've found happiness within,
All the answers to my empty dreams
And all that might have been.
I love you all and miss you so,
And I'll always be nearby.
My body's gone forever,
But my spirit will never die!
And so, you must all go on now,
Live one day at a time.
Just understand-
God did not take me from you,
He only took my hand.

We've known lots of pleasure,
At times endured pain,,
We've lived in the sunshine,
And walked in the rain. ,
But now we're seperated ,
And for a time apart,,
But I am not alone- ,
You're forever in my heart.,
Death always seems so sudden, ,
And it is always sure,,
But what is often' forgotten-,
It is not without a cure.,
There may be times you miss me, ,
I sort of hope you do,,
But smile when you think of me,,
For I'll be waiting for ,
you.
Now there's many things for you to do,,
And lots of ways to grow,,
So get busy, be happy,and live your life,,
Miss me, but let me go.

4 months ago today the Lord came and took my baby home..I prayed and prayed for the strength to let you go and when the time came I held your hand and told you to let go..That everything would be ok..If I only knew then that my heart would never mend,I'm not sure how I would have let go...You were always at my side and you always beleiving in me..You had faith that I would always do whats best for you..And that day I proved to you I would..I let go of you knowing that I would lose the chance to hold your hand again for a long time..In exchange the Lord took you home. Away from all your pain and suffering. And for that I am thankful..I love you Baby more than words can say.and miss you more and more each day..I'll hold your hand again I promise..
after that we'll never be apart..love,Mama

It has been 4 months since I lost you Michael. When you entered my life, my whole world changed. You were able to knock down every wall I had built around myself with no effort. Your warm smile and love took me by surprise. The greatest day of my life was on May 24, 2009. That was the day you walked into my life. From the moment I met you, I knew that you were the one meant for me. I enjoyed the year we were able to share together. You brought me into your family, whom accepted me with open arms. I had never felt the love that you and your family gave before. It was the best thing I had ever experienced. Sadly, on May 29, 2010, God chose to take you back home. That is the saddest day of my life baby. For without reason, you were gone. Words cannot express how I feel. My heart and soul feel empty without you here with me. The only thing that keeps me going is your amazing mother and sister. Together, we are able to overcome the grie that has taken hold and make it through a day at a time. Michael Ray Tetstone, you had my heart and soul and if I could have, I would have given myself in your place so that you could carry on. Now, I surround myself with pictures of you, and think of you every waking moment. My love for you will never fade. I look forward to the day that God allows me to see you once more and hold you in my arms. I will always love you Michael... Always

Michael ,It's been 4 months today that I last heard your voice or seen those beautiful blue eyes..But ever once in a while when things are quiet I feel you put your arms around me and tell me that everythings gonna be alright..I love you more than you'll ever know ..It tore my heart out to watch you slowly go..I know my life will never be the same..Not really knowing who's to blame..You held my hand for 21yrs,2 months and 19 days..But you hold my heart til my dying days...I love you baby and miss you so very much..Can't wait til I can hold your hand again someday..In Gods time...Rest In Peace my baby...Love, Mama

We thought of you with love today.
But that is nothing new.
We thought about you yesterday.
And days before that too.
We think of you in silence.
We often speak your name.
Now all we have is memories.
And your picture in a frame.
Your memory is our keepsake.
With which we'll never part.
God has you in his keeping.
We have you in our heart..

I want you to know that David and I are taking care of Mimi..And we're all taking care of each other..You'll never know just how much we miss you and love you..Sundays are not the same without you..your smile,your laughter &,your sense of humor would brighten up the room.

My Baby Boy... I still think of you each and every day. When I awake in the mornings, I reach for you, but you are not there. When I come home from work, you are not there. At times I feel your presence and feel a bit of comfort. I cannot express with words, how much you meant to me Michael. You were the only one who was ever able to touch my heart in a way no one else could. I cherish the time we had, wishing we had more. I loved you more than I had ever loved before. There was just something special about you. Now, without you here by my side, I cry, waiting for the day I get to see you once more. Michael Ray Tetstone, I love you more than words can ever say!

My life is upside down, loving God. The order of the world is out of place and I can’t do anything to right it again. Oh, Lord, you know the pain in my heart at all times and you know why: my child has died. How can it be that my beloved child is gone? The child I cared for with such concern in every illness, the one I held close to my heart and promised to take care of for a lifetime, is not here for me to care for anymore. It hurts deeply that I wasn’t able to protect this child I love with my whole being from a death that seems so unfair.

Let me feel calm. Let me breathe deeply. Be with me in this kind of deep and transformative pain. I now carry this darkness with me on my back and in my heart, always. It is my burden and my companion.

Lord, there is not a single minute of my life when this loss is not etched so keenly into my brain and heart, whether it is in the middle of a busy day or in those choking moments of grief in the solitary dark of night. Let me be grateful for every minute we had together. Let me treasure those memories and find joy in them.

Help me to deal with people better. They don’t know what to say. They stumble and look away when they see me. They pretend nothing has happened. I know they “don’t want to remind me” but they don’t understand it is with me always, always.

Teach me, Lord. Tell me what you want me to do with this. What am I supposed to learn from this kind of pain? What are you calling me to do?

Open my battered heart and lead me to comfort and peace. Only you can give me the peace I need. Let me feel your presence in my life.

Michael, My life is so empty without you here.I want to her you say "mama I love you." You always knew what to say to brighten my day..You always had faith in me when I didn't have it in myself.You always looked at the good in everyone.And treated them with love and respect even if they treated you badly..That always made me mad when you were treated badly..But you always held your head up and said" I'm tough like my mama"And you were but in alot of ways you were so much more than I could ever dream of being...I'm so proud of the young man you grew up to be..And even more proud that God picked me to be your mom..R.I.P. my baby...You've earned your wings..Love,Mama

Strange, the life you brought into a friend of mine, for that you were such a wonderful light. With only short introductions, and me telling you if your at the Christmas party i am going to put you to work doing something, without a hesitation you help out. Your 21st birthday was approaching and to my surprise, a happy one at that, you invited me to join in to celebrate with your family. I am so happy that i got the invitation. To have meet you brought a bright light into my own life, for that i can never thank you enough. Rest well my friend.

Michael,
On May 24, 2009, I met the most amazing guy in the world. He was someone who was energetic, honest, caring, and seemingly perfect. This guy put a spark and purpose back into my life. After dealing wth people who used me for what they could and caused drama, this guy brought a refreshing change into my life. This guy loved me for who I was, wholeheartedly. This guy was you!
Michael, I so loved you! You made my life whole. You brought light into my life. You brought me into a warm and caring family that completley accepted me into their lives and home and made me a part of their family.
For the past year, I have never been happier! Sure, we had our moments, but we were able to talk about things and move our lives forward. Thi made our relationship ever so more speacial!
I loved your spontaneous personality and the fact that you opened my eyes up to the importance of living life to the fullest, to not be afraid of new things, or to worry about how others thought about you.
One year and one week after you came into my life, you were suddenly taken away! I know that you are in a better place now and are looking down upon us all. However, my heart is broken without you here by my side. At present, life is going to b hard as I adapt to not having you here with me in mortal form. But I am able to feel at peace knowing you are still with me and Yes, I have noticed the little signs here and there showing me you are still here. Baby, you will always be in my heart. Together, your family and I will continue to go on, with a little piece of you in each of our hearts, I know one day, God shall call me home too, and thanks to your Mom and James, I have the chance to once again lay by your side here on earth But, the best part will be seeing you again and holding you in my arms.

Michael,I So Truly Love and Miss you Baby,

Michael,
It's kinda hard with you not around
Know you in heaven smilin down
Watchin us while we pray for you
Every day we pray for you
Til the day we meet again
In my heart is where I'll keep you brother
Memories give me the strength I need to proceed
Strength I need to believe
I still can't believe you're gone.
Give anything to hear half your breath

Every step I take, every move I make
Every single day, every time I pray
I'll be missing you
Thinkin of the days, when you went away
What a life to take, what a bond to break
I'll be missing you
