IN LOVING MEMORY OF JASON DOUGLAS OVERBY

DECEMBER 5,1978 - JULY 1,1999

 

When tomorrow starts without me, and I'm not there to see
If the sun should rise and find your eyes all filled with tears for me,
I wish so much you wouldn't cry, the way you did today
while thinking of the many things we didn't get to say.
I know how much you love me, as much as I love you,
And each time you think of me, I know you'll miss me too.

When tomorrow starts without me, please try to understand,
that an angel came and called my name and took me by the hand,
and said my place was ready, in Heaven far above,
and that I'd have to leave behind all those I dearly love.
But as I turned to walk away a tear fell from my eye,
for all my life I'd always thought, I didn't want to die.
I had so much to live for, so much yet to do.
It seemed almost impossible that I was leaving you.

I thought of all the yesterdays, the good times and the bad,
I thought of all the love we shared, and all the fun we had.
But when I walked through Heaven's gates, I felt so much at home,
and from His great golden throne He said "You have been forgiven
and now at last you're free, so won't you take my hand and share my life with me?"

So when tomorrow starts without me, don't think we're far apart,
'cause every time you think of me, I'm right here in your heart!

Today we took flowers to your grave
and said a little prayer
for God to watch over you
until we get there.

We love you and we miss you
more than words can ever say
you filled our lives with sunshine
with your warm and loving ways.

God gave you to us
for such a short while
we cherish the memories
and miss your sweet smile.

You are not forgotten, Jason
Nor will you ever be
As long as life and memory last
''WE WILL REMEMBER YOU''

Happy Birthday in Heaven, Son
