REMEMBER US / Ruth Marin-Eason (Raul's Mom ) REMEMBER US
To the living, we are gone. To the sorrowful, we will never return. To the angry, we were cheated. But to the happy, we are at peace. And to the faithful, we have never left.
We cannot speak, but we can listen. We cannot be seen, but we can be heard. So as you stand upon the shore, Gazing at a beautiful sea. Remember us. As you look upon a flower and admire it*s simplicity, Remember us.
Remember us in your hearts, Your thoughts and in your memories. Of the times we loved, the times we cried. The times we fought and the times we laughed. For if you always think of us We will be alive in your hearts.
Keeping In Touch / Ruth Marin-Eason (Raul's Mom )
My sweet and loving son, I love you and miss you just keeping in touch seeing your lovely smile, seeing your pictures and reading the poems and tributes to you makes my days even better from start to finish. Seeing the candles that are lit for you knowing other people care is a great feeling that can’t compare.
Keeping in touch is great, for all I have left is pictures of you and I thank God for that I know I can’t see you or touch you but I feel you are close to me, you were and will always be my Little Roy and we were always close when you were a little boy, I had to make you go with your Dad I still picture you screaming on the car window Mommy don’t make me go, when you were alive you were close to me and not even death can separate your love and mine for that will never change LOVE IS FOR ETERNITY! Real love between a mother and child will always connect even when one is gone the connection is there to keep in touch.
I will keep me face looking up and I will always Thank God for the memories of you and the way He allows us to keep in touch and connect that is something no one can change or destroy or steal not even death can take that away. It is something God and only God can do and because of Him we will always be in touch!

WORDS OF WISDOM
Life is an opportunity, benefit from it. Life is a beauty, admire it. Life is a dream, realize it. Life is a challenge, meet it Life is a duty, complete it. Life is a game, play it. Life is a promise, fulfill it. Life is a sorrow, overcome it. Life is a sing, sing it. Life is a struggle, accept it. Life is a tragedy, confront it. Life is an adventure, dare it. Life is luck, make it. Life is life, fight for it.

YOU'LL FIND ME THERE / Ruth Marin-Eason (Raul's Mom )
YOU'LL FIND ME THERE
If ever you have sensed me near, Yet doubted it could be, Thinking it impossible, That rainbow might be me.
See, I'm the whisper of the wind, I didn't ever leave, In fact my presence emanates. If you will just believe!
That song that resonates in your mind Is the one I sing for you. Oh Mommy, please, rely on faith, There*s so much I can do.
At times you loathe the days that rain, In anguish you lament, It seems the sun but dimly shines, The flowers have no scent.
Now Daddy, its okay to cry, I've watch you hold it in, Please know that I adore you so, We'll all be joined again.
And as you hold my Mommy's hand, and share this grief you bear, Just picture me, gaze in her eyes, I swear you'll find me there!

The Friend Who Has Gone Away
When I have gone away, forgive me and allow me to go, I have so many things there to see and to do. You must not tie me to your tears be happy; we had so many years together and I gave you-all my love, you will only be able to guess all the happiness you-all gave to me.
I give you thanks for all the love that each of you gave to me, but now it is a time which I must travel alone, the fact is that, if you feel sad for me, do it for a little while not much more; later let your sadness should turn to confidence and faith. God is with you always forever he is close to the broken heart. So He will always be close to you!
It is only for a moment that we are going to be separated, so bless the memories in your heart. I will not be far, because life continues and if you need me; call me and I will come, you will not be able to see me or touch me, but I will be close, and if you listen with your heart, you will hear very softly and clearly my love. The wind blowing, a butterfly, a baby, a bird singing, a shining star the stillness of the night I will be there just listen with your heart.
Then when it time for you to come the same way, to this Heavenly place; claiming The Stairway to Heaven I will go out receiving you with a smile and welcome you to his house... With all my love I will remember you as you remember me.
