Welcome

  • Smile
    Life is a mixture of sunshine and rain,
    Laughter and pleasure,
    Teardrops and pain.
    All day's can't be bright, but it's certainly true;
    There was never a cloud the sun didn't shine through.
    So just keep smiling whatever betide you,
    secure in the knowledge that my love is always beside you, and you'll
    find when you smile your day will be brighter,
    and all of your burdens will seem so much lighter -
    for each time you smile you will find it is true,
    somebody, somewhere will smile back at you,
    and nothing on this Earth can make life more worthwhile
    than the sunshine and warmth of a beautiful smile.
  • Jessica Matlock by Aunt Vickie
    My beautiful sweet niece
    I long for your smile.
    But it only comes to me in a
    Dream once in a while.

    I see you there with your hair
    blowing in the wind.
    Wishing I could reach out and
    hold you once again.

    Remembering back through all
    the great 17 years we had.
    My heart is so broken and
    deeply sad.

    God took you home on that
    awful gray day.
    He took you by the hand and
    led you away.

    He left us all here to face
    the grief and sorrow.
    To go on day by day
    dreading tommarow.

    No matter how long and far
    that we're apart
    The day you wnet home, you took
    a piece of my heart.

    A piece that is gone and can
    never be replaced.
    Until I'm beside you in heaven
    and can see your smiley face.

    So sleep sweet angel in God's
    promise land.
    He will hold you and comfort you
    and hold your precious hand.

    I'm not gonna say goodbye. I'm
    Just gonna say I'll see you later on.
    I promise you I will watch over
    your mom and dad, till the day
    they come home.

    There is just one more thing
    I want you to know.
    That your Aunt Vickie loved you
    so.
  • Jessica's Lyrics by Anita Lewis, Jessica's Aunt
    Jessica was a beautiful wildflower blowing in the wind;
    She had an abundance of love fore everyone, family or friends.
    She gave of herself of no thought of nothing in return;
    Just watching her life in itself is a lesson to be learned.
    She taught us empathy because she felt others pain;
    Always willing to give of herself no matter how hard the strain.
    She taught us joy because she was always full of joy with a smile on her face,
    When she was sad, she never showed it, not even a trace.
    Most of all she taught us love, I never knew of anyone she was unkind to,
    she loved all;
    I'm not speaking of things told to me, these are attributes I saw.
    Even though her life on Earth was short, she lived life fuller than others;
    Some live to be 100 and never truly learn to love their sisters and brothers.
    She will truly be missed by family and friends.
    But in the game of life, God always wins.
    Because he's got her, and we've got her memories to share;
    And soon we'll all be with her in God's heavenly lair.
  • Untitled by Jessica's Parents
    Nights are so lonely
    Days are so long
    My hours are filled with emptiness
    since you have been gone.

    My sweet, sweet girl
    who I miss so very much
    why did you have to leave me
    I long for your touch

    I pray everyday that I
    could see your smiling face
    because I know if I did
    my tears would erase

    I know your in heaven
    waiting for your dad and me
    Jesus will take care of you now
    Until that time will be

    Our hearts are forever broken
    To fix it, it's not worth a try
    Please God cover her eyes
    so she can't see us cry

    I know you are happy
    because of where you are
    But know that your Mom & Dad
    will someday be there to
    protect you forever more

    Love,
    Mom and Dad

    As the phone rings
    I answer it,
    I find a voice so weak on the other end,
    They called me to tell me,
    My friend is dead,
    As the tears run down my cheeks,
    As the memories roll through my head,
    I want to say good-bye,
    But I don’t know how,
    I wish you weren't gone,
    But someone ended your life,
    I want to say good-bye,
    But I don’t want you to be gone,
    I love you with all my heart,
    Always have,
    And always will,
    I love you friend,
    You will always make me grin
  • If I Had Only Known By Kristy Barnes, Her Cousin
    As I sit here tonight with memories of you in my mind
    I know there will never be another of your kind
    I miss you so much, I wish you were still here.
    Just to see your smile or hear your voice near
    You will never know just how much I love you
    For I will never get the chance to tell you, my dear.
    Your life was so short and it just wasn't fair
    But, I do know you are being taken care of up there
    I still can't help, but ask God why
    I often get angry, because I want it to be a lie
    But reality has hit and it's just not right
    For when you were around, I wish I would have held you tight.
    Please visit me in my dreams, for it's so hard to
    sleep at night. I don't even want to turn out the
    light. I pray for that night when I see your
    beautiful smile, Then I can finally hold you awhile
    Don't worry sweet Jessica your mom and I are fine
    We have finally put our differences behind.
    For your sudden death has taught us one thing
    you never know just what life can bring.
    We all know now, a little too late, to never
    take for granted what God can take
    As I walk into your house, it's just not the same
    Your mom and dad so sad, taking all the blame
    I want so badly to take their pain away
    But my words won't come out, I don't know what to say
    Please watch over them and let them know you are ok.
    give them the answers they search for everyday.
    For you and God have all the answers they need
    To help them live the rest of their life's Journey, we plead.
    Let them know, you are in a safe place
    Surrounded by love, with that beautiful smile on your face.
  • Untitled by Sarah Kehr
    Jessica,
    You were an angel
    Sent from above
    With a smile on your face
    You symbolized love
    Your time here on earth
    Impacted us all
    But God wants you back
    Heaven gave you a call
    Always being happy
    Never wearing a frown
    You made other smile
    When they were feeling down
    Your unmistakable laugh
    Your heart warming smile
    You made so many things
    In our lives worth while
    Life isn't the same
    Because you aren't here
    But in my heart is where
    I'll always hold you dear
