Long time with no hugs & laughs with you!!!!!! How have I made it this long?
Safely Home Iam home in Heaven , dear mama Oh, so happy and so bright There is perfect joy and beauty in this everlasting light All the pain and grief is over Every restless tossing passed Iam now at peace forever Safely home in Heaven at last Did you wonder I so calmly trod the valley of the shade? Oh! but Jesus' love illumined every dark and fearful glade and he came himself to meet me In that way so hard to tread; and with Jesus' arm to lean on,could I have one doubt or dread? Then you must not grieve so sorely,for I love you dearly still: Try to look beyond earth's shadows, Pray to trust our Father's Will. There is work still waiting for you, So you must not idly stand; Do it now, while life remaineth- You shall rest in Jesus' land. When that work is all completed, He will gently call you home; Oh, the rapture of that meeting, oh, the joy to see you come!

A True Mother's Love
A mother's love is consistent and patient, it will never fade. A mother's love is warm and compassionate, even in the shade. A mother's love will always help you through the weakest hours. A mother's love is always like a bouquet of flowers. A mother's love is strong and will never steer you wrong. A true mother's love is beautiful in many ways. A true mother's love is sincere and it takes a mother's love to conquer our fears. A true mother's love knows the depth of love. A true mother's love is contentment, just like God's love. My mother's love is absolutely all of the above.

I will spend my whole life through loving you, loving you. Winter, summer, spring-time, too, loving you, loving you. Makes no difference where I go or what I do. You know that I'll always be loving you.
Were you one of the Lucky Ones?
Did you get to meet the one that lived every day as if it were his last?
Did you see that smiling face, did you hear his infectious laugh?
Did you know the one that had a hug for even the ones that fussed at him?
Did you ever go somewhere and know when the life of the party arrived?
Did you know the one that could make the best of the worst situation?
Did you feel like you were a special person around him?
Did you ever feel so loved?
Were you one of the lucky ones... THAT GOT TO MEET MY SON…
for visiting Roy, it means so much!

Roy's Life consisted of: I want all to know him for who he was.
Sad times: Paternal grandmother left in ambulance fm. his house with a heart attack. She didn't make it to come home again! He was only 12, 5 mentally.
Bio-dad came for a visit & slipped away when he left on school bus-he ripped up 8x10 pic of him & dad-never said a word,why?-he said it all w/out speaking!
His most favorite Aunt Peg passed away un-expectantly-he was 19-they partied together, just the 2 of them.
His sister felled w/ a seizure & broke her foot on both sides & had surgery & couldn't walk for 9wks.
His JAck Russell, Zowie died in the yardw/ Roy standing next to him & he ask Why?
Many of his favorite singers passed & he hurt over each one, especially, Marty Robbins, Waylon Jennings & one of his Idols since he watched him faithfully everyday & had videos, Mister Rogers

Boy Scouts-learned to climb a tree which helped him later. Was on school float w/ just his sister in Christmas parade
Was given Bio-dads truck keys to warm up the truck & He put it in gear & took off the side of his dad's corvette(his dad's first love)_ no one @ their party was concerned about Roy-just the vette-He thought of sueing us till I ask how did Roy get the keys? They gave him the keys!!HUH? It took my Roy to get the old man- 3 half brothers would have loved to do this.
"God Bless you" to the dogs when they sneeze & now his sister is doing it.
Gave the lab a cup of water for urine & had his Dr.flipped out with the results!!
Ran on pulpit during the sermon-had a message fm. God!"Be good to everybody"
Ran behind the counter in the bank to see Micheal Jordan poster & caused an up-roar-guess they thought he was a robber!
Interrupted the preacher on sermon"Jesus is coming back" Roy said"Elvis too"-sister says"No, Santa is coming" the whole congregation laughed.
Turned off main valve @ gas station while I was busy, no one could get gas!
Told Easter bunny, "no candy, just Elvis in my basket"
Running out of Emerg. Room, in the car when I found him because he saw the injection he was getting
Standing @ Customer counter w/ his new C.D. so I'd have to pay before I could leave
Fed the dogs all the pork chops I worked so hard on for dinner. All breaded & crispy Could fit 12 tea bags in a cup to make it in the microwave for a glass of ice tea You knew he hit the sugar bowl when the sugar was on the floor after replenishing sugar bowl
He mowed down the plants & 1 sm. tree we were growing so he never had to mow again!
Threw the picnic table across the parking lot @ the workshop because he was tired of attending there. Never had to go back-spent his last 5 yrs @ homew/ mom-I'm so thankful for this part. God works in strange ways.
His last phone call to his Bio-dad & cussed him out & told him how low down he was for hurting all of us! His dad deserved this but don't know if it was the best for last!
He went to the casino a few times & loved the pretty ladies as he called them. Would rather order a Pepsi than stay w/ his winnings falling in the tray! Reminded me of "Rainman "
In an arguement would always say to the person"U don't know who U messing with" & would not hurt anyone
Bring the newspaper straight fm the street & put it in the trash can- If U wanted it, U knew where to find it.
Ran toilet over @ church-loved to flush as he entered a bathroom , while he was using it & one more time on his way out. The preacher understood him but what a mess.
Slipped off down country road & walked to church to their Pepsi machine, my neighbor found him w/ 9 cans stuck in machine"too many buttons" is all he had to say
WAs enrolled in Horticulture & picked the veg. before they were ready- bout sent the teacher over the edge.
Let his sister cut off ALL his hair & I couldn't find the hair when I found him bald! They hid it in a brown paper bag under the bed!!!!!!!!!
Painted the bathroom wall partially & then I had it to finish
REmoved the just hung wall paper in the kitchen & turned it all in a different direction!
Put 2-4 records in slots of his juke box, now I need a repairman Of couse the Spa on his B'day-2 days before he got sick-w/ all his clothes on & sandals. Times only a mother could love!!!!!
Had to be Santa @ School play because he was the big guy- 6ft. Shoes of Santa's too sm. He thought this was hilarious & I did too!Other Santa did not show up. Boy, did he have some shoes to fill & he did.

Music Trivia-even knew their record label!

Knew a good step-dad fm a bio-dad
Knew Jesus-wanted to talk about John when he held the BIble-he knew to respect the "Book"-I wanted to talk about Job-his Faith, struggles

Impressed Mister Rogers so much of guessing the color of the next sweater that he wrote Roy twice!

Won tickets fm. radio stations for concerts to:Beach Boys, Randy Travis, Vince Gill & Patty Loveless, Sammy Kershaw
Was lost & climbed a tree to spot his house-said he learned it in Boy Scouts
Shook hands with the Gov. of Ky. never met a stranger & knew nothing about discriminating. taught lessons on LOve-the Gov. left with a picture of Roy & Twinkles in his jacket pocket-told him when life got too rough on him to look @ those 2 faces!
Gave away boxes of doughnuts he was selling (suppose to be!) to support his Boy Scout troop!
From his room to mine @ bedtime with "I love you MOm" goodnight"
Prayed @ the alter for people & prayed @ home & gave a blessing when ask before meals. Short but to the point & God understood him
Roy's favorite movies:
All of Elvis' Rain Man Smokey & the Bandit-watched this 20 times Forrest Gump Dirty Dancing-watched this 20 times Saturday Night Fever Beverly Hillbillies-Jethro Three stooges-hilarious to him
T.V. shows: Married with Children Mama's Family Barney w/ Andy Griffith Mister Rogers-Thank God for a man that taught my son about death, divorce, first dental appt.,ride in an ambulance(thought of this as we transferred him to another hospital) he had me watch how balloons are made w/ him, how mushrooms are grown but the best show was having a boy on w/ a handicap-he let you know "everyone is different" & Roy sang this song. Price is Right-could come close! Found his preachers on Sun. Morn. & holler for me Dukes of Hazzard-
C.M.T. country music All comedies Jeff Foxworthy
Times I regret-this is rough on the mind & heart! Correcting him when it was a disease & not him Giving him consequences for bad behaviors when it was his disease Trying 20 different psycho drugs to help him-none ever did Only made him worse Not knowing about the abcesses sooner fm his headaches, tingling in hand & foot-thought it was side affects fm his meds. Not being there for his last breath-holding him as he left-
This was written so any parent that has never experienced a child w/ a handicap,will possibly learn fm. my tireless love & my mistakes but more & better than that to give your child all the love you can. Gosh, what a buddy I had.My side-kick In memory of my precious son that took what was dealt to him & went on. Thank you God for a beautiful son. Katie
