Isaac would tell you
If you are struggling with life
and are thinking
I can't do this, it is not worth it.


It is true, life isn't always easy,
There will always be challenges,
However, there will also be fun,
joy, new adventures, love and laughter.


Change isn't always easy
But getting help
And feeling better
makes it all worthwhile

"Hold Fast" lyrics by Mercy Me

Lyrics  that speak for us the thoughts we all have asked...

To everyone who's hurting
To those who've had enough
To all the undeserving
That should cover all of us
Please do not let go
I promise there is hope

Hold fast
Help is on the way
Hold fast
He's come to save the day
What I've learned in my life
One thing greater than my strife
Is His grasp, So hold fast

Will this season ever pass?
Can we stop this ride?
Will we see the sun at last?
Or could this be our lot in life?
Please do not let go
I promise you there's hope

Hold fast
Help is on the way
Hold fast
He's come to save the day
What I've learned in my life
One thing greater than my strife
Is His grasp. So hold fast

You may think you're all alone
And there's no way that anyone could know
What you're going through
But if you only hear one thing
Just understand that we are all the same
Searching for the truth
The truth of what we're soon to face
Unless someone comes to take our place
Is there anyone?
All we want is to be free
Free from our captivity, Lord
Here He comes Hold fast

Help is on the way
Hold fast
He's come to save the day
What I've learned in my life
One thing greater than my strife
Is his grasp
So hold fast...
Hold Fast




I thought that I was all alone,
broken and
afraid but you were there with me, you were there with me

I was lost and I was all alone
I couldn't find my way
But you were there with me...

You are here with me

Words from a song called
Mountain of God on Note from Mom
We all, at times, go through valleys
Before we can stand on the Mountain tops.

Try to live with open hands
Let go of the bad and
Be ready to receive the good
Love and peace to you Always,

We miss you everyday and now the holidays are here, we miss your laughter, your hugs, thoughtfulness and mischief


Fredericksburg, VA 

“You Bring Me Back to Life...”  To me, the song you are hearing is about God doing that very thing for us here and now. It is the one thing I/we can do for our loved ones now, allow Him to bring us back to life and at the same time let our love, our good hopes be what we remember, we celebrate and with the sweet memories  bring Isaac (and your loved one) back to life - in our mind and hearts.  Somehow, feel the forgiveness ourselves, of whatever our minds feel like we failed them, and forgiveness for their action, to free us and lift our minds, our spirits back to life.  May our doubts disappear, may we live inside and our fears be far behind, as we find what we need and by the Grace of God, “Come back to Life”… may you find your song and may your feet learn to dance…

We Will Remember the Good
and "Pass it On"



 The world is a different
place without you,
A better place because
You were here...


Dear Isaac,

It has been almost 5 years
and not a day goes by without
thoughts of you.
We still cannot believe it.
It seems so unreal.
Feels like you are still with us at times

We remember You as
A life so full potential
Promise, a
nd laughter...
Strength and determination.

We wish one moment with you,
So we send it up in a prayer
A toast, to let you know
The times we miss you most... 
You will always be loved so much! You made a choice and left us behind to carry on...
We wish you peace as we
Try to make our own.

You were here on earth for
just over 17 years...
You will never be forgotten,
You are part of us,
Within our hearts,
Our memories 
And a threa
d of our hope
for the future
We shall celebrate your life
and our own. 
We love you

Mom, Your Family
and Friends

    Because Isaac Lived
You can shed tears that
He is go
Or you can smile
Because He lived,
You can close your eyes and
pray that he will
come back,
Or you can open your eyes
and see all that he has left.



   Your heart can be empty
Because you can't see him
Or you can be full
of the love that you shared,
You can turn your back
on tomorrow and
Live yesterday,
Or you can be happy
For tomorrow because
Of yesterday.

You can remember him
and only that he is gone
Or you can cherish his memory
and let
it live on.

You can cry and close
your mind
Be empty and turn your back,
Or you can do
What he w
ould want:
Smile, open your eyes,
Love and
go on 







Dear Ones,

Do not be sad
Look up towards the stars
And catch each twinkle in your heart.
For I am there with you.
My legacy is not wealth or mighty belongings,
My legacy is you and your life.
Spend it wisely and carefully
Guard it always
Do not be sad
Feel the wind on your face
and in your hair
And know that I loved you
For I am there with you, in your laughter
And in your hearts.
Learn to live again without me
Take my strength with you
For you are not alone.
Do not be sad
Feel the rain on your face
Feel all life's treasures and
Know that you are alive!
At each step of the way
I will help you
For I am with you always
Until we meet again.
