  11. Poem by EE CummingsI carry your heart with mei carry your heart with me (i carry it in my heart) i am never without it (anywhere i go you go, my dear; and whatever is done by only me is your doing,my darling)i fear No fate (for you are my fate, my sweet) i want no world(for beautiful you are my world, my true)and it's you are whatever a moon has always meant and whatever a sun will always sing is you Here is the deepest secret nobody knows(here is the root of the root and the bud of the bud and the sky of the sky of a tree called ife ;which grows higher than the soul can hope or mind can hide) and this is the wonder that's keeping the stars apartI carry your heart (i carry it in my heart)

  12. Under the leather and behind the shades stands a biker. We ride for the sense of freedom it gives us. The encouragement to take the road less traveled in the chance that we may encounter something new. We ride for the friendships we make along the way, as well as, the solitude of the open road. We don't really care what you ride, just that you do. Under the leather and behind the shades is a beating heart. A heart filled with compassion that on any given day will be riding for those in need. Ask one of us for help, but don't be surprised when all of us show up. Under the leather and behind the shades stands a proud American. We are as diverse a group of people that you could possibly assemble. We are men, women, tradesmen, doctors, lawyers, retirees, military, civilian and on and on and on. We stand silently with reverence and one voice that, in the silence, can be overwhelming. Thats why we stand so silently under the leather and behind the shades.

  13. My Bubba , I love and miss you so much. Keep the family in line up there, and i know you will keep them laughing,Like you did all of us. You are one of a kind. i love you bunches. We will all be together again one day . Love you always and forever. MONKEY NIECE

  14. Charlotte and family, I want to let you know that all of you are in our thoughts and prayers. Let us know if there is anything we can do.

  15. Bubbles, your with your Pop now. You no longer have to hurt and miss him. We wanted you to be at peace again about Dad, but we didn't want it this way. Out of all of us, I guess you were the one that God knew truly needed his "Pop" the most. At night, when I awake, I can see you both walking in Heaven, and the smiles on your faces, well, it's unexplainable! What a sweet, beautiful and loving brother you were to all of us. I hope you knew how special you were to all of us. Your love and life will continue to live on in Peg, your girls, parents, brothers and sisters. With each of us, you left an ever-lasting love. You touched so many lives during your short life with us and you didn't even realize it. How I shall miss your long arms wrapping me in love and comfort as only you can do. At some of our lowest times, you could walk right up to me, and hug me to tight. Your hug spoke volumes. I don't know how I'll make it through another birthday without your phone call to me. The good part of it is, we'll always share the same birthday, only, now your in Heaven and your not aging and in the meantime, your laughing at me because I'm getting older and more grey. Sweet Bubbles, looks as if you get the last laugh after all. I wish I would have told you more often how much we loved you. I don't know how our family will ever heal and go on with all of our losses. It's really scarry to think that we'll all just drift apart and everyone's love will be in vain. I pray that we can all come together closer than ever. Till we meet again, rejoice with all our family and loved ones. Tell Sister how you told the girls, "Humm, I just MIGHT be yo Daddy!" (LoL) She'll get a HUGE kick outta that one. Send us more Beautiful Bubba's Butterfly's. Until we're all together in Heaven…………….

  24. miss ya bro πŸ™ wish this got easier but i miss you more everyday… can't wait till we meet again… keep POPS in line πŸ™‚ love ya

  25. Where to start… After 7 years, it still hurts SO BAD that your not here. I still talk about how life would be very different if you were here to help guide me. There are so many things that I want to show you, talk to you about, people for you to meet, triumphs to share with you, and the list goes on to no end. Its just hard. I knew it would be hard. I just didnt expect it to be this hard for this long. As stubborn as it is for me to want you here instead of that wonderful place you are, I do wish you could still be here. I love you so much!

  26. sweet Bubbles, we just celebrated another b-day….i missed your call….i missed your voice…how i can still hear you….happy birthday
