Memorial website in the memory of your loved one
A Poem Wrote By Kenny Ruebe

My Kailey Bailey

She couldn't have dairy or whey
For if she did she couldn't stay
She was so full of life for seven years of age
She wanted to be center stage

Her favorite song was Follow Me
When it came on she would say sing with me
I love you I love you come sing and play with me
You won't find nobody else like me

She lived and loved but did not hate
But did not make eight
Life works in mysterious ways
She has been gone for too many days

Your memorial garden is in my yard
Where we go when thngs get hard
We love you so much
I set on your bench and miss your touch


My Mom Is A Survivor

My Mom is a survivor,
or so I've heard it said.
But I can hear her crying at night
when all others are in bed.

I watch her lay awake at night
and go to hold her hand.
She doesn't know I'm with her
to help her understand.

But like the sands on the beach
that never wash away...
I watch over my surviving mum,
who thinks of me each day.

She wears a smile for others...
a smile of disguise!
But through Heaven's door I see
tears flowing from her eyes.

My mom tries to cope with death
to keep my memory alive.
But anyone who knows her knows
it is her way to survive.

As I watch over my surviving mom
through Heaven's open door...
I try to tell her that angels
protect me forevermore.

I know that doesn't help her...
or ease the burden she bears.
So if you get a chance, go visit her...
and show her that you care.

For no matter what she says...
no matter what she feels.
My surviving mom has a broken heart
that time won't ever heal.

It must be very difficult

To be a man in grief.

Since "men don't cry" and "men are 

strong"

No tears can bring relief.


It must be very difficult

To stand up to the test.

And field calls and visitors

So that she can get some rest.


They always ask if she's alright

And what she's going through.

But seldom take his hand and ask,

"My friend, how are you?"


He hears her cry in the night

And thinks his heart will break.

And dries her tears and comforts her

But "stays strong" for her sake.


It must be very difficult

To start each day anew.

And try to be so very brave-

He lost his baby too.

Kaileys Favorite song:

Follow me by Uncle Kracker


You don't know how you met me
You don't know why, you can't turn around and say good-bye
All you know is when I'm with you I make you free
And swim through your veins like a fish in the sea
I'm singing....

Follow me
Everything is alright
I'll be the one to tuck you in at night
And if you want to leave
I can guarantee
You won't find nobody else like me

I'm not worried 'bout the ring you wear
Cause as long as no one knows
Then nobody can care
Your feelin' guilty
And I'm well aware
But you don't look ashamed
And baby I'm not scared
I'm singing...

Follow me
Everything is alright
I'll be the one to tuck you in at night
And if you want to leave
I can guarantee
You won't find nobody else like me

Solo

Won't give you money
I can't give you the sky
You're better off if you don't ask why
I'm not the reason that you go astray and
We'll be alright if you don't ask me to stay


I'll be the one to tuck you in at night
And if you want to leave
I can guarantee
You won't find nobody else like me

You don't know how you met me
You don't know why, you can't turn around and say good-bye
All you know is when I'm with you I make you free
And swim through your veins like a fish in the sea
I'm singing....

Follow me
Everything is alright
I'll be the one to tuck you in at night
And if you want to leave
I can guarantee
You won't find nobody else like me
I'm singing

Follow me
Everything is alright
I'll be the one to tuck you in at night
And if you want to leave
I can guarantee
You won't find nobody else like me
I'm singing

Follow me
Everything is alright
I'll be the one to tuck you in at night
And if you want to leave
I can guarantee
You won't find nobody else like me

  Bereaved Parents Wish List





























I wish my child hadn't died. I wish  I had her back.
                  Y
I wish you wouldn't be afraid to speak my child's name. My child lived and was very important to me. I need to hear that she/he was important to you also.
                  Y
If I cry and get emotional when you talk about my child, I wish you knew that it isn't because you have hurt me. My child's death is the cause of my tears. You have talked about my child and you have allowed me to share my grief. I thank you for both.
                  Y
Being a bereaved parent is not contagious, so I wish you wouldn't shy away from me. I need you now more than ever.
                  Y
I need diversions, so I do want to hear about you, but I also want you to hear about me. I might be sad and I might cry, but I wish you
would let me talk about my child; my favorite topic of the day.
                  Y
I know that you think of and pray for me often. I also know that my child's death pains you too. I wish you would let me know these
things through a phone call, a card or note, or a real big hug.
                  Y
I wish you wouldn't expect my grief to be over. These first years are traumatic for me, but I wish you could understand that my grief
will never be over. I will suffer the death of my child until the day I die.
                  Y
I am working hard in my recovery, but I wish you could understand that I will never fully recover. I will always miss my child and I
will always grieve that she/he is gone.
                  Y
I wish you wouldn't expect me "not to think about it" or "be happy". Neither will happen for a very long time, so don't frustrate yourself.
                  Y
I don't want to have a "Pity party", but I do wish you would let me grieve. I must hurt before I can heal. 
                  Y
I wish you understood how my life has shattered. I know it is miserable for you to be around me when I'm feeling miserable. Please be as patient with me as I am with you.
                  Y
When I say, "I'm doing okay", I wish you could understand that I don't "feel" okay and that I struggle daily.
                  Y
I wish you knew that all of the grief reactions I'm having are very normal. Depression, anger, hopelessness and overwhelming sadness are all to be expected. So please excuse me when I'm quiet and withdrawn or irritable and cranky.
                  Y
Your advice to "take it one day at a time" is excellent advice. However, a day is too much and too fast for me right now. I wish you
could understand that I'm doing good to handle an hour at a time. 
                  Y
Please excuse me if I seem rude, certainly not my intent. Sometimes the world around me goes too fast and I need to get off. When I walk
away, I wish you would let me find a quiet place to spend time alone. I wish you understood that grief changes people. When my child died,
a big part of me died with him/her. I am not the same person I was before my child died and I will never be that person again.        
                  Y
I wish very much that you could understand ~ understand my loss and my grief. But.... I pray daily that you will never understand.

Her legacy
All The Love A person can give  
Kailey was the most easiest person to love. When she walked into a room, she let you know she was there. She was so upbeat all the time. She loved to dance, sing, and play games. She loved animals. 
 She always let you know that she loved you. Her bright brown eyes always shined. As one year has pasted since she left us, I have found more people who knew her that we had no idea knew her. Just yesterday her Auntie Melissa was telling me about the custodian at her school told Melissa's boyfriends dad about Kailey passing and how he knew her from the school. She was a person even though she was young that you just could not help yourself but to get to know her. She generated Love. She was a powerful little girl. Her heart was the biggest one I have ever known. I pray that all her qaulities are passed onto her brothers and sister.  God Bless Kailey for being in my life. Your legacy will live on my sweet grandchild.

This is what Kaileys Nan read at her funeral:

The first moment I layed my eyes on Kailey I said to her
                                   "You are an Angel"
She screamed loudly
                                  "Mom you tell her I am not an Angel!!"
As the years went on I would always let her know she was an angel.

Kailey would say to me
                              " Nan do you see any wings on me!?"
I would say 
                               " Yes Kailey. They are big and beautiful"
                               " Well Nan"
She would say
                                " I just dont see them!"
As she got older I would tell her
                                 " Angels have halos"
She would say
                                " Well Nanny what does it look like!?"
                                 " Kailey it is as brite as the britest star in the sky."
She would say
                                " That brite Nan!?"
I would say
                                " Yes Kailey even briter."

Our Kailey loved to sing. And if you sang with her you better know all the words to the song because if you messed up her song she would start the song all over.

Kailey loved 50 cent songs. She would say to her daddy
                                 " You sing the song and I will do the beat"
She would never miss a beat in their rap session!!!!

The last day Kailey was in school she was in math class. Her teacher heard someone humming a song and our Kailey was the little song bird. The song she was humming was her favorite song by Uncle Cracker. You better know  who Uncle Cracker was!! Because if I didnt she would say
                                   " Now Nan, Uncle Cracker sings this song!"
I would say
                                   " kailey I didnt Know"
She would say
                                   " Well you do now Nan"



When you feel you can not go on a nother minute without her, and the heartache is so painful and you are yearning for her so deeply during the day or night I want yo to listen very quietly at first it will be very quiet then it will be very loud.
 This is what youre going to hear:
" Follow me and every thing will be alright."
She is the one who will be going to be the one who tucks you in tonite!!"

She will always be with us if we are quiet enough to hear, The swish of an Angels wings  flapping the loudest in the air!!
                            "Wub you Kailey"
                            " Wub you too Nanny"
