I wish it was not so  / Candice Detwiler (First girl friend as a child )
  I wish that I could find a way to bring back your sweet son and heal your hearts. I first met Keith when I was five years old on the school bus and he was my (boyfriend). I will never forget the day that he kissed me under his coatlol we had no clue but now looking back I am so happy to have shared that time and those times with Keith.We dated for a little in middle school and it was not long till I moved away. It upsets me to say I never got the chance to see him again.But your son was a wonderful person in so many ways and I hope you know that your family not only brought a wonderful person into the world but one that will live in many hearts forever.Forever Mei he rest in peace.
Sorry / Tonya Pinder (Freind From High School )
Wow, I didnt know that Keith had left us, I just found out. I am sorry and I know that it is hard but he will forever be with all of us.
A Loving Angel  / Brandi Faucett (My Best Friend )
onzxA loving angel came to me in dreams,
And showed me life's not always what it seems,
And brought me to a place where sweet dreams live,
And gave to me a gift that I now give:

She whispered, "Take my hand, I'll lead you through
A place where all the sweet dreams can come true!
Close your eyes and open up your heart,
For then this flight of dreams so sweet can start.

She brought me through the darkness to the light,
Where colours wrapped around me with delight,
A patchwork quilt of beauty without seams,
Each colour was a rainbow full of dreams.

She led me through a hall of lovely sound,
With doors flung open widely all around.
And from each room a song would gently play,
And I wished with all my heart that I could stay.

We drifted in the fragrance of the breeze,
To savour all the flowers and the trees.
We tasted all of life that we could see,
And felt it flow as one in harmony.

Then my angel turned to me and said
"You're the keeper of these dreams inside your head.
Dream sweetly now, and dream of love and light,
And dreams will lead you safely through the night.

I am the keeper of this dream, it's true,
And I offer all my dreams to each of you.
May their loving sweetness visit you each night
And fill your soul with love and warmth and light!
Son / Moneica Collins (Mother)

Heaven's Firefighter Shore  / Krystle Prather (Friend)
All day long on earth, he fought the fire with all his soul,
Now he’s in Heaven , where the streets are paved with gold.
No more sirens awake him at night, no more sweat upon his face,
He’s walking down those streets now, yes, he’s in a higher place.

No need to check his air tank, or shine his black stripe boots,
No need to check his helmet or to patch his heavy suit.
He doesn’t need to hurry , he doesn’t have to rush,
There’s no fires in Heaven, just a small burning bush.

He remembers his last fire, it seemed like yesterday,
He reaches up and touches his cheek, he wipes a tear away.
He remembers times he felt the heat, so hot, it seemed like Hell.
But he knows the job is getting done, his buddies will do it well.

As he looks down and sees his buddies, each fighting the flame,
He remembers each one well and calls them all by name.
His face is wet with tears, his heart is full of pride,
“Remember me” he says, “I am there by your side‘’.

The fires put out, the trucks have gone, his buddies now at rest, He knows that he must leave them, he knows they passed the test. 

Tonight he will sleep softly, listening for the call he’ll hear no more, For he is now among the best, resting on Heaven’s Firefighter Shore.

Maybe not Forever  / Brandi Faucett (Best Friend )
There are so many  stories I still want to tell
There are so many I love you's left unsaid
There are many tears left uncried
There are many dreams left to fall apart

I miss our long talks
I miss the nights when all was alright
I love you like a friend should, you were my angel
Yet I wonder why you left me here to die

We were forever best firends
When one fell to the ground
The other one was there to help them up
We healed our broken hearts
With a hug and a gentle smile
We stayed up several nights looking at the stars.

Now you are gone and I don't know what to do
I close my eyes and think of you and how
You were always there.
Its hard to look at your pictures, and get memories of you
Can you hear me now
At night I pray, and speak to you
I guess you were right when you told me no matter how far you were you would always be there.
I know one day I'll see you again, but till then I have to say goodbye.


I love you and always will Keith! There are so many things that I need to talk about but you are not here to says all those words you used to say. But I won't give up and I won't break down sooner than it seems life turns around and I will be strong even if it takes so long standing in the dark I'll still believe that someone is watching over me.

CHERISHED FRIENDSHIP  / Brandi Faucett (Best Friend )  Read >>
CHERISHED FRIENDSHIP  / Brandi Faucett (Best Friend )
God must have known there would be times we'd need a word of cheer,  Someone to praise a triumph or brush away a tear.
He must have known we'd need to sharethe joy of "little things",
In order to appreciate te happinss life brings.
I think he knew our troubled hearts would sometimes hob with pain,
At trials and misfortunes, or goals we can't atain.
He knew we'd need the comfort of an understanding heart,
To give us strength and courage to make a fresh, new start.
He knew we'd need companionship, unselfish...lasting..true,
And so God answered my hearts great need with a 
            CHERISHED FRIEND LIKE YOU!!!!!!!!!!!

I LOVE AND MISS YOU MY BEST FRIEND!

First Christmas in Heaven  / Sandra Powell (aunt)
                           "First Christmas in Heaven"

   I see the countless Christmas Trees around the world below,
     with tiny lights, like heaven's stars, reflecting on the snow.
       The sight is so spectacular, please wipe away that tear,
  for I am spending Christmas with Jesus Christ this year.
  I hear the many Christmas songs that people hold so dear, but
the sounds of music can't compare with the Christmas choir up here.
          I have no words to tell you, the joy their voices bring,
            for it is beyond description, to hear the angels sing.
  I know how much you miss me. I see the pain inside your heart,
               but I am not so far away. We really are't apart.
      So be happy for me dear ones. You know I hold you dear,
and be glad I'm spending Christmas, with Jesus Christ this year.
    I send you each a special gift, from my heavenly home above.
           I send you each a memory of, of my undying love.
       After all "LOVE" is the gift, more precious than pure gold.
            It was always most imprt in the stories Jesus told.
      Please love and keep each other, as my Father said to do,
     for I can't count the blessing or love he has for each of you.
         So, have a Merry Christmas and wipe away that tear.
  Remember, I'm spending Christmas, with Jesus Christ this year.

Remember Me  / Jessica Cloud   Read >>
Remember Me  / Jessica Cloud

Remember me when flowers bloom, 
Early in the spring.
Remember me on Sunny days,
In the fun that summer brings.

Remember me in the fall, 
As you walk through leaves of gold.
And in the Wintertime - Remember me,
In the stories that are told.

But most of all Remember,
Eachday - Right from the start,
I will be forever near,
For I live within your heart.

If Tears Could Build A Stairway  / Jessica Cloud   Read >>
If Tears Could Build A Stairway  / Jessica Cloud
 If tears could build a stairway, 
       And memories a lane,
 I would walk right to Heaven, 
   And bring you home again.
 
 No farewell words were spoken,
       No time to say "Goodbye."
 You were gone before I knew it,
       And only god knows why.

 My heart still aches with sadness,
      And secret tears still flow.
 What it meant to love you - 
      No one can ever know.

 But now I know you want me
      To mourn for you no more: 
 To remember all the happy times,
      Life still has so much in store.

 Since you'll never be forgotten.
      I pledge to you today -
 A hollowed place within my heart
      Is where you'll always stay. Close
