grove of trees they have there....until we got
attacked by mosquitoes and Zack got attacked
by allergies!!!

The start of our Memorial Day Holiday

Enjoy the photos we have

We love you all
Hope you all have a safe and Happy
Memorial Day!!
This is my brother Todd's grave.

Zackary TODD Heaps sitting by his
Uncles Grave.
Here all three of my kids are sitting by
my Grandpa Morris' grave.
Grandpa Morris was my Best friend
when i was young...
I really wish my kiddos could have
met him here on Earth!!


Perhaps they are not
stars in the sky,
but rather openings
where our loved ones
shine down
to let us know they
are happy.

After Glow
I’d like the memory of me
to be a happy one.
I’d like to leave an after glow
of smiles when life is done,
I’d like to leave an echo
whispering softly down the ways,
Of happy times and laughing
times and bright and
summer days.
I’d like the tears of those who
grieve, to dry before the sun,
Of happy memories that I leave
When life is done.

As We Look Back
As we look back over time
We find ourselves wondering .....
Did we remember to thank you enough
For all you have done for us?
For all the times you were by our sides
To help and support us .....
To celebrate our successes
To understand our problems
And accept our defeats?
Or for teaching us by your example,
The value of hard work, good judgement,
Courage and integrity?
We wonder if we ever thanked you
For the sacrifices you made.
To let us have the very best?
And for the simple things
Like laughter, smiles and times we shared?
If we have forgotten to show our
Gratitude enough for all the things you did,
We're thanking you now.
And we are hoping you knew all along,
How much you meant to us.

in her parts!

walked in his room to find him sitting
on his bed watching TV.....
Still stark naked....with his Helmet on.
