Just a few memories  / Mary Bueno (a oldie but goodie neighbor )

Perry,Karen and Becca: There is not a day that goes by that I don't think of Jake. Remember when Harley had her kittens and Becca and Jake were over everyday. I can still remember like it was yesturday when you all lived across the street and many a night when we would sit out side together as 1 big family listening to that scanner. God I wish we could turn back the hands of time. You know that you are all in my prayers. Karen I also want to tell you that I visit this web site everyday just to read all the heart felt messages that everyone writes and as I read them I cry. I know that crying helps heal but it sure is taking along time. You know when my mom died I never thought I would ever be able to get back to living with out her, but she was sick and older with Jake it is diffrent he was neither of those things but like I truly believe God had really needed the biggest smiling angel and he had to take Jake since there was no other nor will there ever be. Like I said before if any of you need anything Please call or come over. We are always here for each and everyone of you. ^ 5 to you for keeping this site going and to all the people that miss and love Jake as me,Phil and PJ do.
Take care

RIP Nick Dams  / Karen Gosselin
  Tonight Perry, Rebecca & I, send special heartfelt prayers, support and condolences to the Dams Family.  They've lost their son Nick this evening in an accident.  I know no details, I only know that Nick has a special angel who has welcomed him into heaven with open arms.  

     I've been told that the pieces of this broken world we now share will slowly mend themselves back together--not in the same way as before, but in a way that will allow you to live in peace from constant emotional turmoil, to live without daily suffering.  

     The passions of the heart are not always visible, particularly when we are suffering a severe loss.  Survivors often say they wish they could wear a sign or a badge to signal to other people how damaged they feel.  Grief is isolating and it is deceptive.  Sometimes a person who seems perfectly fine on the outside is going through extraordinary inner torment day after day, hour after slow hour.
     We can't change the way the world is......We can't insist on a special signal to the "outside world" that we're in great distress, but we can talk about what burns inside us.  Never keep silent when you have the need for your pain and your loss to be known......
     Grief is a healing journey..... Close

If Only I Had Known  / Someone Very Special
        If only I had Known

If only I had Known it was our last walk in the rain
I'd keep you out for hours in the storm
I would hold your hand, like a lifeline to my heart
And underneath the thunder we'd be warm
If only I had known it was our last walk in the rain

If only I had known I'd never hear your voice again
I'd memorize each thing you ever said
And on these lonely nights, I could think of them once more
And keep your words alive inside my head
If only I had known I'd never here your voice again

You were the treasure in my heart
You were the one who always stood beside me
So unaware, I foolishly believed that you would always be there
But then there came a day when I closed my eyes
And you slipped away

If only I had known it was my last night by your side
I'd pray a miracle would stop the dawn
And when you smiled at me, I would look into your eyes
And make sure you know my love for you goes on and on
If I had only Known, if I had only Known

WOW Jake  / Jessica (Friend)
Jake theres been so much going on since you left us. I can't believe it, its been a year. Thats a scary thought. We are seniors this year jake thats crazy huh? WE MADE IT!!! i cant help but to cry sitting here knowing youre gone and theres nothing i can do, I really could have used youre funny advice and your smile to help me through the last month. Its like theres this hole now and noone and nothing can seem to fill it. I need jake to make me laugh when im feeling depressed and to make fun of you know who with me. I know its been a while since I was on here and I know I havent been to see you yet but its just so hard. I think about you all the time and i always want to go to see you but i dont think id make it. I love and miss you jake we all do, but hopefully ill see you again.

September 10th, 2005  / Karen Gosselin
     On the anniversary of Jake's death, may all of us treasure the unforgettable moments and meaningful words we all shared with Jake. 

     May we all find comfort love and peace in each new day.  And may all our journeys lead us all into a new place of healing.

     I can only hope that Jake knows the tremendous amount of people who loved & miss him.

     I want to sincerely thank each and every one of you for keeping Jake so close to your hearts.  I am overwhelmed with all the love and support offered to Perry, Rebecca & myself, throughout these past 12 months, from my family, dear friends, and co-workers.  I could have never made it without all of you!!

     Each day and night, I pray for all of us to heal from this tragic loss.  I take this opportunity to remind all of us just how careful we need to be at all times when we drive our cars.    We can't lose sight of the huge responsibility that goes along with driving a car.  We can never forget preventative maintenance, or regular repairs to our vehicles.  Wear your seatbelts, do the speed limit,  most importantly, Never, Fail to Yield to the Right of Way, and pay attention to the road, at all times.  Wisconsin experienced 784 fatal traffic deaths in 2004 alone.

     May these times of sadness pass gently on their way, and may each warm memory remain as a precious keepsake, forever in our hearts.

If I Knew  / Sydney (Friend)  Read >>
If I Knew  / Sydney (Friend)

If I knew it would be the last time
That I'd see you fall asleep,
I would tuck you in more tightly
and pray the Lord, your soul to keep.

If I knew it would be the last time
that I see you walk out the door,
I would give you a hug and kiss
and call you back for one more.

If I knew it would be the last time
I'd hear your voice lifted up in praise,
I would video tape each action and word,
so I could play them back day after day.

If I knew it would be the last time,
I could spare an extra minute
to stop and say "I love you,"
instead of assuming you would KNOW I do.

If I knew it would be the last time
I would be there to share your day,
Well I'm sure you'll have so many more,
so I can let just this one slip away.

For surely there's always tomorrow
to make up for an oversight,
and we always get a second chance
to make everything just right.

There will always be another day
to say "I love you,"
And certainly there's another chance
to say our "Anything I can do?"

But just in case I might be wrong,
and today is all I get,
I'd like to say how much I love you
and I hope we never forget.

Tomorrow is not promised to anyone,
young or old alike,
And today may be the last chance
you get to hold your loved one tight.

So if you're waiting for tomorrow,
why not do it today?
For if tomorrow never comes,
you'll surely regret the day,

That you didn't take that extra time
for a smile, a hug, or a kiss
and you were too busy to grant someone,
what turned out to be their one last wish.

So hold your loved ones close today,
and whisper in their ear,
Tell them how much you love them
and that you'll always hold them dear

Take time to say "I'm sorry,"
"Please forgive me," "Thank you," or "It's okay."
And if tomorrow never comes,
you'll have no regrets about today.

*I miss you Jake and love you so much Close

Special Picture  / Karen Gosselin   Read >>
Special Picture  / Karen Gosselin
     Today I added a special photo to the website.  The picture is titled "Heidi".  Heidi is  very special to Jake, and very special to Jake's family.  Heidi was first on the scene when the accident occurred.  Heidi has given Jake a very special gift.  Her gift is not allowing Jake to die alone.  To us, Jake's family, we can't think of anything more comforting for Jake and our family.  We know in our hearts between Heidi and Kim, our son was loved and held till the last moment of his life.  He was told how much he was loved by these women by whispering in his ear.  As I've told Heidi & Kim countless times, I truly think they are angels sent by God.......Again I thank you from the bottom of my heart, for sharing this gift with Jake.
Heidi, we wish you a very very Happy Birthday on Friday. We hope all your special Birthday wishes come true!!! Close
My Son Lives in Paradise  / Missing Jake   Read >>
My Son Lives in Paradise  / Missing Jake
   The dust has settled on the things
             That I have stored away
             A favorite toy, for little boy
             A jar of dried out clay.

             A photograph when you were young
             Sits quietly on the shelf
             Thoughts of you come drifting back
             I just can’t help myself.

             A drawing that you made for me
             When you were very small
             Is framed within this heart of mine
             And hangs upon the wall.

             A scrapbook lies within the room
             Where you once laid your head
             Your favorite book, a model car
             The pillow on your bed.

             I miss you coming in from school
            “Hey mom, it’s me, I’m home”
             I miss the little words and hugs
             The special times we’ve known.

             A part of me just disappeared
             The day you went away
             An empty space now fills my heart
             There are no words to say.

             A closet filled with memories
             Of happy days gone by
             A baseball cap and souvenir
             Why did you have to die?

             The trophies that you won at school
             Stand proudly on display
             Your many friends can’t understand
             Why God called you away.

             I hear your voice within the halls
             It echoes in the night
             I see you in the evening mist
             And in the morning light.

             So many things you left behind
             Are now a memory
             But little arms that held me tight
             Will always stay with me.

             An empty space now fills my heart
             My boy, my child, my son
             You’ve gone into another world
             Where golden dreams are spun.

             I do not know the answers
             It‘s not for me to know
             But I will know the truth one day
             Just why you had to go.

             My turn will come to leave this world
             I’ll gaze into your eyes
             God’s perfect plan will be revealed
             Up there in paradise.

Follow Me.....  / To Anyone Who's Lost A. Child

I offer my hand to you
All Mothers and Dads
To walk the road I'm walking
To help you when you're sad

To all the siblings
And all grandparents too
Aunts and uncles and friends
Everyone that cares about your child and you

When a child dies
It defies the reason of life
There are no answers to WHY
They left so young in their life

There are no answers to the questions
That many of us ask every day
"Why my child?"
"Did I have to lose this way?"

There are no answers for the mothers
Who give birth to one who died
To never hear that child say Mommy
We ask a million whys?

There are no answers for I have searched
Many times through the years
I can't begin to count the churches
Where I sat and cried so many tears

Looking for an answer
Of why my own left so young
He was my dream and life
His life had just begun

I've learned through all the years I've had
On the road I've had to walk
That our lives are changed drastically
And about our child's life, we have to talk

We cannot forget what we had
Nor what we no longer have today
We can't forget how happy we were
Before our precious child went away

Follow me now as I keep walking
This long road in my life
For I know the feelings of heartache
For all families, husbands and wives

I too buried a child
That I will always love
I will always wonder why
He has to reside in heaven above

When I didn't get enough time on earth
To do what moms are supposed to do
I didn't protect him from all life's harms
As I had promised myself I would do

I keep on walking as the years go by
I sometimes fall, I sometimes cry
But I am surviving the best I can do
I know what you feel, I feel it too

I feel for the parents who sit in a courtroom
And wait for justice to be done
For parents who sit and cry
For the life of their loved one

I cannot say any words
That will make you feel very well
I know from experience myself
To lose is child is a living hell

Follow me
For I have so far survived
Yet if I could turn the hands of time
My child would still be alive.
