dear jordin,

it's been 4 years now, since you decided to leave us.
in some ways it feels like yesterday, in others a million
years ago, and in still others, another lifetime entirely.

with the passing of each year, i feel like we leave you
further and further behind. it breaks my heart.

i've run the gamut of emotions, joe. i've gone from
mind numbing grief, to anger and back again, numerous times.
each time the grief becomes bearable, something happens to
remind me of you, and i plunge into the abyss again.

my life has become a litany of would have, should have, could haves
and i feel helpless to fight against it. i hate feeling helpless, jordin.
you know i do. but helpless i am.

i know that i know, that my faith keeps me able to tread the water
that has become my life. it's unimaginable to me how those without
faith can cope. with no faith, there is no hope and with no hope, what
is there?

the holidays are here again. what i'd like to do is get into bed and
pull the covers over my head and not come out again until the new year,
but in each year since your death, God has engineered it so i have little
ones in the house. little ones that do not understand that gramma is
having a sad day. so i bake and decorate and wrap presents and wish
for things that i cannot have. at the end of the day, i close myself in the
bathroom and cry until the tears won't come anymore. the next
day, it all begins again.

that's my life now jordin. now there are questions that
can never be answered and pain that will never end. not just for me...
for your twin, your son, your other siblings and their families. we are
all stuck, to some extent, in 2004. we cannot move forward.

we're losing connection with you.
you're gone.
we've lost you,
we've lost justin.
today,tomorrow and all the tomorrows after that,
that's the way it rolls.

today, i'm angry, son, but that doesn't change the fact that i miss
you every single day and i love you more than life. so you save
me a seat, and i'll see you in a little while.

who is one day closer to hugging you again

happy birthday jordin!
fall is in the air and i find myself listening for you whooping it up down the road at night. i'm remembering countless bonfires and roasted marshmallows, all the tales we told and how you always kept us in stitches with your stories and antics.
i miss those days, son, more than i have words for. i miss you and even though i know the passing of each day brings us closer to seeing you again, the wait is hard.
i'm holding you close today, joe. can you feel it?
and as we eat your birthday lasagne tonight, please know that you are loved beyond words and sorely missed by all of us.

i love you!
(who is one day closer to holding you again)

dear jordin,
this morning, for whatever reason, i awoke to the scab being torn from the wound that your death caused. the nerve endings are screaming and i am missing you so very very much. i am playing "with hope" over and over to remind myself that i WILL see you again, but dadgum it joe, i want it now! i miss you now! i want a hug NOW!
i need a visit, hon. please?

1 Thess. 4:13-14 / Heb. 6:9, 10:23

This is not at all how
We thought it was supposed to be
We had so many plans for you
We had so many dreams
And now you've gone away
And left us with the memories of your smile
And nothing we can say
And nothing we can do
Can take away the pain
The pain of losing you, but ...

We can cry with hope
We can say goodbye with hope
'Cause we know our goodbye is not the end, oh no
And we can grieve with hope
'Cause we believe with hope
(There's a place by God's grace)
There's a place where we'll see your face again
We'll see your face again

And never have I known
Anything so hard to understand
And never have I questioned more
The wisdom of God's plan
But through the cloud of tears
I see the Father's smile and say well done
And I imagine you
Where you wanted most to be
Seeing all your dreams come true
'Cause now you're home
And now you're free, and ...

We have this hope as an anchor
'Cause we believe that everything
God promised us is true, so ...

We wait with hope
And we ache with hope
We hold on with hope
We let go with hope

I miss you.

Sunday, December 02, 2007

i woke up this morning thinking i'd heard you shouting, "attention all geneva citizens! this is your daily wake up call! daily! daily! E-V-E-R-Y day means daily! but as i lay there, reality filtered thru and i realized you weren't here....again.

oh jordin, it's been three long years since you left us and there is still such a big hole in the fabric of our family that none of us has been able to figure out how to patch.

it's true that the tears fall less frequently, but the ache lingers on.

i miss your humor son. no one ever made me laugh the way you do (and over things i knew i shouldn't laugh about!) i miss you raggin on my about "health foods" i miss your compassion, i miss your hugs. i miss a thousand things that make you jordin and sometimes the wait to see you again is still nearly unbearable.

but, wait, i will, and sometimes i'll dream of what it will be on that day that heavenly Father allows us to all be together again.

until then, joe, remember that i love you, take care of my dog and don't forget to save me a seat.

i love you baby, for forever and a day!

Happy Birthday.It's still hard with you not being here with me.It's OUR birthday and you are not here with us.I miss you more than words could ever say,but you know that.There isn't not one day that goes by that I don't think of you.Not one.You are not only my brother,but my best friend.I love you.

Tuesday, October 02, 2007

happy birthday darlin! how strange it feels to wish you happy birthday when you're not here with us. i don't think that's something i'll ever get used to.
i miss you so much, but then you already know that from our talk last night. i'll be watching today to see what you come up with for me.
brianna, dave and the kids are coming for dinner tonight. your sister needs a jordin hug today, son, she's missing you terribly, especially today on the birthday you share.
and your mama needs a favor too...please watch for sugar. she truly has a foot in both worlds right now and is hours away from crossing the bridge, i think she'll prolly wait for your birthday to be over, but then she'll be right along. i keep telling her that you're right there waiting for her and that it's ok to go. so you watch out for my dog hon, and take care of her till i get there.
i carry you close, jordin, in my heart and thoughts.
save me a seat baby, i'll be there in a little while!
i love you

oh jordin....another new year has begun. another year without you in our lives. midnight was bittersweet. we toasted each other with gingerale and were so grateful to be together, but each one of us had thoughts of you and wished you were with us to raise a glass and make silly resolutions that we all know we won't keep.
afterwards, as i lay in bed, i kept expecting to hear your woo hoo hooooo drifting thru the night, but last night, like so many others, i was disappointed. i miss you so much, joe. i want to see your smile and touch your sweet face. i want to hear you say "hey mama" like you always did and give me a great big bear hug.
please be ok son. and please find a way, if you can, to let us know.

i love you joe
forever and a day!

i love you baby,

two years,'s been two long years since you left us. i don't know how we've gotten thru them or how we will continue to get thru until we see you again!
everywhere i go, i expect to see your face or hear your voice. everytime i see a young man with your build, or walk, or haircut, my heart skips a beat in anticipation that it might be you.
missing you comes in waves....i have days now, that feel almost normal and then i'm blindsided by the memory that you're gone. mornings are the hardest.....waking up to a world that you're not in is not something i ever expected to have to do.
i miss you so, baby. save me a seat, i'll be there in a little while.
i'll love you forever

Hey Jordin,
I wanted to tell you Happy Birthday!! I want you to know that a lot of people think of you often & miss you greatly. Even though you are gone you are not forgotten. Happy Birthday Again, Stacey

Hey Jordin, Think of you & your family often. I guess we are all coping as best we can. God bless. Mary Ann (Bryan Storys mom)

Sunday, May 21, 2006

Jordin, ive been missing you so much the last few days. im thankful that these times come and go and that for the most part when i think of you i am able to think of all the wonderful things that made you who you are. i cant wait til im with you again cuz i really need you to put your arms around me. i love you joe!!

Friday, February 10, 2006

I had the strangest dream last night that everything was ok again. You were here and everyone was together. It seemed so real even though none of it made any sense. Just a crazy dream. I love you Jordin.

Sunday, January 08, 2006

Jordin, I can't believe that you are gone. It is still just such a shock to me. I always expected you to pop back up around here. I just want you to know that I still care about you and have love for you. Hopefully you and Tyler have found each other, give him a big hug and kiss for me. I am trying to find pictures of you for your family but I had know idea how difficult it would be to look at you and not cry. I guess it is still all too new to me still. Jordin, just know that you are missed greatly not only by your family in Florida but your family in Texas also. You had an impact on alot of people here. Until next time.


—Stacey Allen, Canyon Lake, Texas
Friday, January 06, 2006

I wanted to express my deepest sympathy to Jordins family and to let you guys know that Zach and I just found out and are dumbfounded by the whole incident. I would like to hear from Ali if you could get the message to her my number is 830-237-4342 and again my deepest sympathy and my thoughts and prayers are with you. Jordin was loved very much and will be missed even more. God be with you all.

—Jody Crocker, Canyon Lake, Texas
Monday, January 02, 2006

Jordin, I can't believe your gone. We just found out. I guess I always expected you to pop back up here and surprise us, like you use to. We all have so many memories of you here, but it sounds like you have many people who miss you everywhere. You touched so many peoples lives. You made me laugh, you make me smile. Everytime I was in a bad mood, you knew how to cheer me up. Remember when you let me learn how to drive a standard in your car? You said there wasn't anything more I could do to mess it up. Then I brought it back on fire! And all you did was laugh! I'm only sad that we didn't know what was going on - maybe we could've helped you. I know your in a better place now. I hope your up there with Tyler and all of your other family and friends. Please watch over us and be there for us when it's our time to go. We love you Jordin and we miss you so much!

—Theresa Keltner, Canyon Lake, Texas
Saturday, December 03, 2005

Hey bro, you know this really sucks. I know that you are better now, but what do we do? We have to keep living, missing you, until the day that we can be together again. It's just not fair little brother. We are supposed to look back on life together and laugh about all the crazy things we've been through. And you're not with me. A year has past and I miss you more each day. I will always love you Joe.

Thursday, December 01, 2005

How can it be a year already? A whole year has passed since you left us Jordin.

I still play our game, you know the one where'd we'd try to beat the other at guessing old songs, and my boys, they remind me daily of you, how'd you manage that? One of them looks like you and the other acts like you did when you were little.

Dammit Jordin, just dammit.

One day we gotta have a talk my brother. But maybe then it won't be as important, I will simply understand. Cuz tonight I sure don't.

I do love you.

i want you back!
i want to shout halleluiah for another birthday
that brings you closer to the best of who you were to become
a beautiful man child full of grace and truth

they tell me that beyond the blue is what we call Home
what our soul secretly longs for even in life
i'm jealous of that place that holds you
just out of my reach not a curtain or a veil but a fortress strong

it's your first birthday in Heaven
i wonder what its like to soar with no gravity to hold you
to be free of sorrow and a burden
that defines our existence here in this imperfect space

even so, i will mark this time
this red letter day when you came to me
and filled me with such awe and responsibility
the best of all and worst of all

i love you Jordin,
forever and a day

You at Christmas time and Bo on mom's birthday. Did you guys think we would ever forget you?? Silly Boys! Never.......
Hey Joe,
We moved to Osteen, 7 acres. You'd like it, lotsa room to run and hide LOL and the only difficult fence to maneuver is into the gator pond - but then even you wouldn't jump in there during a quick getaway, would you?
I don't pretend I think you are anything more than sleeping right now. If that isn't the case please give Muzzy a big hug for me and tell Bo I am sorry I didn't know him. Don't hurt yourself if you decide to take up motorcycles. Maybe you and Bo can start up a group in Heaven. Gives a new meaning to Hells Angels huh?
I do love you, you know!

—Lib, Florida
Thursday, September 15, 2005

oh joe! please can't you and bo get together and send a little comfort to aunt barb? its all so new for her and her pain is so raw and horrible. i so wish she could have just a glimpse of our two boys and that we could have just a little understanding of why both our boys were called home so close to one another.
justin did you proud, son, when we went to say goodbye to bo. such a little man in his shirt and tie. thank you for him, joe, he's such a joy to us.
i am missing you dreadfully today, baby and even though i know that each day brings us closer, its a hard path to walk.
remind bo to save a few seats, k?
i love you,
forever and a day,

—mom, geneva
Thursday, September 15, 2005

There aren't enough words to tell you how I feel.I miss you so much.I talk to you all the time.Do you hear me?I wish I had done things diffently.Maybe you still be here with me,with all of us.Do you know about Bo?We lost him on Mom's b-day.Is he there with you now?Do you guys know how much you are missed?And loved?I love you

—Brianna, Geneva, Florida
Wednesday, May 25, 2005

Hey Bro, I had a dream this morning that we were together just hanging around like we used to. It seemed so real, like I had just awoke up from some long slumber and you were there with me. It was nice to feel so close to you even if only for those short moments in my mind. I really wish you were. I miss you everyday. I am so sorry Jordin.

—Connie, Orlando
Thursday, May 05, 2005

it's scott and nick's 18th birthday joe. can you see what awesome men they're growing into? are you rejoicing with us? somehow, i know you are.
i feel your presence so strongly in geneva, joe. every corner i turn, i still look for you ambling down the road.......i suppose i always will.
justin is growing a changing a little every day. i know you're proud of your boy, son. i see so much of you in him!

i love you baby,
forever and a day!

i miss you much

Saturday, April 09, 2005

I still linger in disbelief. I thought that by now I would be past that but I just cant believe youre really gone. I wish I would have said so much. There are so many things I wish I would have done differently. I would have done anything just to have you here with me. My worlds not as bright as it was when you were here to share it with me. I hope one day you know how sorry I am that I didnt do more for you. I cant wait to see you again Joe! I love you so much!

My thoughts and prayers are with you.

It was getting dark at the grave where a faithful mother prays;
While in a sunlit realm just a breath away,
We could hear her beloved son have these words to say.
"Look Lord! It is mom again. She loves me so."
"Yes, my little one, "He said, "How well I know."
"Lord," he sighed, "I love this place you
Prepared for me.
Such beauty, such joy, it set my feet to dance ...
but...if only mom could have a glance.
You see, she worries about me
and if I'm happy where I am.
Would you send a sign to let her know
I am in your promised land?
It is darker now and mom can barely see.
Dear Lord, would you reassure her please?
From his pleading eyes and pixie grin, He knew
he sought a miracle from Him.
"I will," He smiled...and touching the child's golden hair;
He spun a dazzling sunbeam to shine on mom
down there.

i love you, joe, forever and a day

So many people imagine that death cruelly separates us from our loved ones. When our loved ones die, they do not leave us, they remain. They do not go to some dark and distant place. They simply begin their eternity. We do not see them because we are still in the darkness of this world. But their spiritual eyes, filled with the light of heaven are always watching us as they wait for the day when we will share their perfect joy.
We are born for heaven and one by one we end this life of tears to begin our life in happiness. I have often reflected upon this beautiful truth and found it the greatest and surest comfort in time of mourning. A firm faith in the real and continual presence of our loved ones has brought the conviction and consolation that death has not destroyed them, nor carried them away. Rather it has given them life! A life with power to know fully and to love perfectly. With this new life and new power our loved ones are always present to us, knowing us and loving us more then ever before. The tears that dampen our eyes in times of mourning are tears of homesickness, tears of longing for our loved ones. But it is we who are away from home, not they. Death has been for them a doorway to an eternal home. And only because this heavenly home is invisible to our worldly eyes, we cannot see them so near us. Yet, they are with us, lovingly and tenderly waiting for the day when we, too,
will enter the doorway of our eternal home. No, death is not a separation really: It is a preparation for eternal union with those we love, in the peace and joy of heaven.........Bob Graham

i love you, joe.....
forever and a day...

It Wasn't My Intention~

Another day for you to wonder,
another day for you to mourn.

It wasn't my intention to go before the coming dawn
My pain was deep within my heart and troubled head.

It wasn't my intention to go without words said.

My frame of mind seemed normal, or so I heard them say
It wasn't my intention not to see another day.

I did not mean to make you suffer or cause you so much pain.
It wasn't my intention to never see you again.

Despair and confusion left my aching mind unsure
It wasn't my intention to suddenly close life's door.

If only I could give you reasons and brush the tears away
It wasn't my intention to leave you and not stay.

I did not mean for you to grieve, now left alone to cry.
It wasn't my intention to leave you, forever asking why?

As the burdens of life's worries slowly ebb from my heart,
It wasn't my intention to tear your soul apart.
author unknown

i love you joe!
forever and a day

Hi Jordin - Your Mom & I have been comparing our two sons. We have discovered our sons are alot alike. I hope the 2 of you meet. We know you both were crazy about Dale Earnhardt. We need the 2 of you to help us make it through this long journey we are on. Let us know you are watching over us & help us be strong. We love you guys dearly. We are living for the day we see you again & can hold our babies in our arms. In our hearts & souls you remain. Bye for now. Mary Ann

Two minutes after his birth.....
I could hear his announcing scream.
I couldn't believe he was finally here,
The realization of my dream.

Two hours after his birth.....
I held him so close to my chest.
Somehow that little boy let me see,
A special love that never left.

Two days after his birth.....
I held his tiny little hand.
I told him there would be lots of things
That I would help him to understand.

Two weeks after his birth.....
He had that sparkle in his eyes,
And when he showed me that little smile,
I thought that I would surely die.

Two months after his birth.....
He was just beginning to learn.
He didn't like me to go away,
And he cried until I returned.

Two years after his birth......
I still couldn't believe he was mine.
We talked and laughed and went for walks.
We had so many special times..

Two after.....

Two minutes after his death.....
I didn't know I needed to scream.
I thought that he was still safe and here.
I didn't know the truth of my dream.

Two hours after his death.....
I felt a strangeness within my chest.
Something was wrong that I couldn't see.
God!!!!, I didn't know that he had left.

Two days after his death.....
I held his cold and lifeless hand.
There were just so very many things
That I could not fully understand.

Two weeks after his death.....
That sparkle stolen from my eyes,
No longer to see his beautiful smile.
I never, ever thought that he would die.

Two months after his death.....
There was so much I needed to learn.
I was confused when he went away,
And I still waited for his return.

Two years after his death.....
I still wish that he could be mine,
To talk and laugh and go for walks.
I miss those special moments in time.

Two minutes after MY death......
Once again I will hear him scream,
"Hey Mom, it's me, I'm over here,
And Mom, this time it's not a dream"

Two hours after MY death.....
I'll hold him close again to my chest.
He'll look at me and say... "Now see?",
It doesn't seem so long since I left."

Two days after MY death.....
He will gently take me by the hand,
And show me all the glorious things,
And help me to understand.

Two weeks after MY death.....
I'll see that sparkle in his eyes.
Once again he'll warm me with his smile,
And say... "You see, Mom, I didn't die".

Two months after MY death.....
Together we'll have so much to learn.
We'll never have to go away,
Or long for each other's return."

Two years after MY death.....
Once again he will finally be mine.
We'll talk and laugh and go for long walks,
Because, we'll have nothing......but time.

What touches us
Is the joy
They brought us
What comforts us
Are the memories
We Share
What lasts........
Is love.

One month. I cannot believe it has been one month. All I know is I don't want to have to do this without you. And I hope that somewhere deep inside you knew, really knew how very much I love you and how much you meant to me, Chad and the kids. I am so grateful for having gotten to know you Jordin. I thank you for that. And I love and miss you always.
Your big sis, Lib

Jordin, I'm trying to accept that you are where you need to be so that you may understand your purpose and see the beauty you possess, and that I will be with you again. That this is a short part of a great journey that we are taking together and that I will see you again. But I miss you now bro. Until then.

Jayedee, There is no way to find the words to comfort. Just as there is no way someone else could understand how we feel about our children. I do know that your loss is heavens gain. Your family is the last one we pray for everynight before Kaitlyn goes to bed. You will all always be in our thoughts. Sorry for your loss...

Tuesday, December 14, 2004

God Bless each of you for your love, support and prayers, it means so very much to our family.

Jordin, baby boy, I miss you so much and pray that you have the answers now that you did not have in life. The longer I sit here the fewer words that come to mind, but a song plays on my heart and I am led to share........

AMY GRANT lyrics - "In A Little While"

(Amy Grant, Gary Chapman, Brown Bannister, Shane Keister)

Got a ticket coming home
Wish the officer had known
What a day today has been
Then I stumbled through the door
Dropping junk mail on the floor
When will this day end
But then your letter caught my eye
Brought the hope in me to life
Cause you know me very well
And I bet you wrote me just to tell me

In a little while
We'll be with the Father
Can't you see Him smile
In a little while
We'll be home forever
In a while
we're just here
To learn to love Him
We'll be home
In just a little while

Boy, that letter hit the spot
Made me think of all I've got
And all that waits for me
Guess I've known it all day long

Wonder where my thoughts went wrong
When will my heart believe
Wakin' half-way through the night
Reachin' toward the lamp for light
Pickin' up the Word I find
Here's another letter to remind me


Days like these are just a test of our will
Will we walk or will we fall?

Well, I can almost see the top of the hill
And I believe it's worth it all

I love you Jordin and cannot wait to hug you again!

A Child Loaned

"I'll lend you for a little time,
A child of mine," He said,
"For you to love the while he lives,
And mourn when he is 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 charm to gladden you,
And should 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 whole world over,
In search for teacher's true,
And from the throngs that crown life's lanes,
I have selected you."

"Now will you give him all your love,
Nor think the labour 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,
Will ever grateful stay.
But should Your angels call for him,
Much sooner than we planned.
We'll brave the bitter grief that comes,
And try to understand."

oh baby, i miss you so much!

i love you

ps.....did you have anything to do with those windchimes this morning?

Jayedee, you and your family are in my thoughts and prayers. I'm sure its been unbearable to deal with but I'm also sure you have the strenght to pick up the pieces. Take Care & Be Safe, Love Claire
