I dreamt of you last night  / Christina Hazlewood (Good Friend )
Brett,
You continue to visit me in my dreams and I am grateful. It gives me some peace to know that you are ok. You will forever have a special place in my heart. I cherish the time that we spent together and the wonderful memories. I love you now and forever, Christina

I dreamt of you last night
I dreamt a dream that was so real
I could almost feel you in my arms
In my dream everything was like it use to be,
with us sitting around just being you and me
I dreamt of you last night
In my dream you were full of life
just like most of your friends remembered you to be
I was the only one who ever saw your dark side
I was the only one who could feel your pain
In your eyes I saw you for you
I dreamt of you last night
In my dream you came to ask only one thing
You asked, "Did you ever love me?"
Without a moment to hesitate
I ran to you and held you in my arms
And I answered you truthfully and honestly
"With all my heart and I'm sorry I never told you
but I guess now you will never know"
You looked at me with tears in your eyes and smiled
And then just like that you were gone
Now you fly among angels and your pain is no more
I ask you this, "Will you be waiting for me at Heaven's Door?"
I dreamt of you last night
and in my dream things were just as they should be.

Uncle Angel  / Dad
So today you are an uncle, uncle angel.

What a beautiful son your brother has had, wait, what a beautiful son Nick and LaDessa have had.

What I pray is that you touch this child with God's power to enable him to enjoy a loving and wonderful life.

What I will miss though is you teaching, loving, and being a part of his life, but I know you will be, either he knows it or not.

We miss you, as you know, because we tell you everyday, your life and love has touched so many, and we all miss of you.

As we move on my son, please move with us, stay wtih us, touch us and love us.

I miss you more today than yesterday, and I will miss you even more tomorrow.

I hear your voice, I see your smile, I feel your kisses.

I love you and miss you,

Dad Close

Brett,
Your father is so proud of you. He has done a wonderful job on your tribute and keeping your memory alive. I have gotten to know you through your dad and no wonder he is so proud. And you would be proud of him. He helps so many of us without even realizing it. Keep sending him lots of signs and Angel kisses. Keep him in your heart, you are forever in his.
Love, Natalie

MY SWEET ANGEL  / Dad
It'a been two years now since I've touched your beautiful face, kissed you, I close my eyes and I see us sliding down the culd sac on the ice in redding, I see you playing baseball, I see you playing football, but the most is I miss seeing you trying to beat me arm wrestling, one of these days it would of happened. Maybe not.

I know you are somewhere beautiful and safe and that what keeps me going on.

I pray that you watch over your brothers and sister.

Watch over your Grandparents who miss you and love you so much.

Happy Birthday into heaven my Angel, I love you and miss you. Close

My sweet Angel  / Dad
OK, it's been awhile since I've written you, there was a topic the other day on our gp site about what would you son/daughter say to you in a letter if they could send you one.

Whew! This is what I said would be your letter to me.

Dear Dad,

First I want you to know I'm OK, it's beautiful in heaven, and believe it or not I see you everyday whether you know it or not.

I want to tell you I'm so sorry for what I put you, mom and everyone through. I know what I did was stupid but I want you to know it wasn't intentional just a stupid accident.

I knew you were their everyday, I could hear your voice, could feel your touch, and loved every kiss you gave me. I don't know why God kept me alive those extra 8mos and 1day I haven't even asked him, that is something you'll have to ask him one of these days if you want to.

Tell grandma and grandpa thank you also, I remember them with me every day the month I was in the hospital, I remember at times grandpa talking to me, and he'd get upset because he knew I was smarter than that, doing what I did, tell him he was so right and I'm sorry, but tell him I also heard him when he told me how much he loved me and missed me. Tell them I couldn't have hand picked greater grandparents and I love them and miss them also.

Tell Nick congratulations on finding out he's going to be a dad, tell Colby, Mikey and Addison that I'm watching over them everyday and all they have to do is look up to the heavens and talk to me anytime they want, they already have several times, let them know I hear them.

One last thing, I love you Dad, and I miss your kisses, but I also want you to know, I'm no longer in pain. When I see you cry for me it lets me know how much you really did and still do love me.

Their is so much more I'd like to say, but I'll send you another letter when I can,

I love you so much Dad,

Brett.

My letter to you would go something like this.

Dear Brett,

Hi bugs, hope everything is going well, I'm sure it is. I see you everyday, I hear you everyday, I smell you everyday, what I miss the most is the kisses everyday.

You have had so much company in heaven since you've gotten there please let the children know how much it means to let their parents know they are OK.

I close my eyes and you are right next to me. I love you and miss you so much.

The things I will miss, 
You becoming a father
You calling me telling me, Dad you were right
You growing old and holding your grandchildren
You with Nick, Kayln, Colby,Mikey, and Addison
You just You
You beating me in arm wrestling

Did I mention just you,

I love you and miss you everyday,

Dad

I'm so sorry for your loss  / Cynthia Durgin (none)  Read >>
I'm so sorry for your loss  / Cynthia Durgin (none)
Dear Mr. Bostick,

I am a stranger to your family, but after seeing this memorial site and especially reading your story I felt I had to at least express my condolences to you on the loss of your son Brett.

Your story was heartbreaking and honest--it brought me to tears.  It is terribly sad what happened to Brett.  Unfortunately, young people are very impulsive and often act without thinking things through.  I know this because I have a 19 yr. old son who is very stubborn and just wants to do what he wants immediately.  In fact, the reason I came upon your site is that I was looking up information on depression because I'm worried about my son.

But this is about Brett.  Again, I'm so sorry for everything he went through and how he suffered.  But you know that now he is in God's hands, safe and secure and out of pain.  You will have a glorious reunion with him in the future.

By the way, I think you should consider writing a book.  You have a very good writing style--clear, honest and heartfelt.  Not all parents in a situation like yours would be able to write like that.  Very powerful.

God bless you,
Mrs. Cynthia Durgin

Merry Christmas  / Dad
I remember as if it was yesterday, this time of year is harder than your birthday or the day you went to heaven. So much was done this time of the year 2 years ago, did I do the right things, I pray that when I'm with you in heaven God can tell me that I did.

I pray that you watch over your brothers and sister, your aunts and uncles, your cousins, your grandparents.

Please help the other children, who have joined you, way to early into heaven, to touch their parents and families hearts this season and through out the year.

I'm going to add a Christmas poem one of the parents have written it is so beautiful.

DEAR SANTA

My beautiful Son on his birthday  / Dad   Read >>
My beautiful Son on his birthday  / Dad
Tonight I sit and remember 24 yrs ago, I wasn't the best father at 20 running around not being there for your mother, but we grow, we hopefully grow into productive adults who have children and try too teach them from our mistakes.

I hope that I taught you from my mistakes, I know that you made some of the same, but that's ok.

I remember someone finding me 24yrs ago I was out running around and they told me your mom was in the hospital, I rushed there, I'll never forget the first time I saw you, so small and innocent. 

I'll never forget the last time I saw you, so small and innocent.

We all make mistakes some are worse than others.

Tomorrow wewill celebrate your birth and remember your life, A life I miss so much.

I want you to know that I pray I did the best. For you and your brothers and sister. I want you here right now so much to hug you to kiss you. You are one of my hero's and I'll never, ever forget you.

Your beautiful eyes, your beautiful smile, the way you walk, the way you talk, your movements, your behaviors, but the most your wonderful kisses.

I'm sitting here listening to the music we played at your memorial and I'm not feeling sorry for my loss, I'm so proud, to have had a son, that God gave me, as wonderful as you. 

Your death and your life are emblazzed in my heart and mind, and no one can take that away from me.

I pray that today you are watching over your Aunt Molly, you know she needs you to be with her. And now my angel,  you have the power. Be with your Uncle Chris, Uncle Phillip, and Aunt Becky also as the travel the hard roads they my pass.

Be with Grandma and Grandpa and your Grandma Mary Ellen, wow for some reason it never occured to me, both your grandmothers are Mary's how wonderful is that.  Hmmm they both mean so much to me.

You know that they miss you just as much as I (we) do.

Tommorow we are planning a huge birthday breakfast, I'm inviting you to attend.

Love lost from a child can never be replaced, it will still grow, every single day.

My love for you is not the same the night you went to heaven, my love for you has still grown everyday, the same as it has for Nick, Colby, Micheal, and Addison.

I pray that you are also watching over Kalyn.

I hope tomorrow you and Grand Dorothy have a wonderful, beautiful birthday in heaven, and I know you will.

We had two Sept. 24 birthdays and we always will.

Well I guess that's enough until tomorrow.

I love you and miss you so much, 

Dad

I'm sorry  / Connie ((sammy's aunt) )
to Brett's family and friends - I am so very sorry for the loss of this beautiful young man. I am sorry he decided to try to take his own life but it appears as though he never really meant to go through with it.  I lost my nephew on June 21, 2003 at the age of 19 to suicide.  I lost my brother in 1979 to suicide. Twice in a lifetime. They came from 2 totally different worlds.  My brothers was turbulent full of violence, my nephews was peaceful and joyful yet he chose to go. 

Your son is gorgeous and reading his tributes you could see he was a wonderful son, friend, grandson. 

My thoughts and prayers are with you all.

Heartfelt condolences  / Linda Lewis (GP group )
To Brett's family and friends....I am so very sorry for your loss but know and believe that you gained far more from having Brett in your life than you have lost.  Your love for him is neverending and he will be a light in you until you are with him again.  Never doubt his love for you and yours for him.  We don't know why these things happen and there are no answers now but I know that someday we all will know the answers.  Brett was/is/will be with you until that day comes.  I am sure that he and my son Grant are holding hands and sending their love to comfort us.  You will be in my heart and prayers.
Linda,
Grant's Mom

My Dad is a Survivor

 

My dad is a survivor too...
which is no surprise to me.
He's always been like a lighthouse
that helps you cross a stormy sea.

But, I walk with my dad each day
to lift him when he's down.
I wipe the tears he hides from others.
He cries when no one's around.

I watch him sit up late at night,
with my picture in his hand.
He cries as he tries to grieve alone,
and wishes he could understand.

My dad is like a tower of strength.
He's the greatest of them all~!
But there's times when he needs to cry...
Please be there when he falls.

Hold his hand or pat his shoulder...
and tell him it's okay.
Be his strength when he's sad,
Help him mourn in his own way.

Now, as I watch over my precious dad
from the Heaven's up above...
I'm so proud that he's a survivor...
And, I can still feel his love~!

You are our Guardian Angel

My Son  / Dad

As I sit here hundreds of miles from Mom and the kids I wait for the moment that everything will be ok. 

It will never be ok, just alright.

I can smell your beautiful skin and feel your wonderful kisses.

Life must go on, and it will for all of us, but there is a hole that we all will always feel. You not being here with us.

I know that you know I loved and love you with all my heart not any more or any less than the other kids, but you were the first. You were suppose to teach the other kids what to do and not to do, and hopefully you have.

Please be with us, all of us, watch over and protect and give us comfort that we know you are in a kingdom that we can only dream of, and one day will be there, with you.

A year ago almost to the moment I layed my head down to rest, in your room by you. I'll never forget the moment I was awoken and told that you were gone. You looked so peaceful.

I kissed your wonderful, beautiful face and told you that you were in a better place now, in no pain or suffering. I relive that moment often and miss your beautiful smile daily.

I just pray and hope that you really know how much I did and still do love you, with all my heart.

I love you so much and miss you,

Dad

I never met your beautiful son Brett , but our sons had alot in common.  They were born and died within weeks of each other and by the same unfortunate means. They were loved by those who knew them.  They were a true pleasure to have and be around.  They made you laugh, cry and feel the love that was theirs to give. They are both keeping watch over us.  Loving them is easy,  missing them hurts.  My sincere and deepest sympathy is with you today and always.

So True  / Dad

Today I read something in our Grieving Parents Support Group site. 
It is so True.

To the world you might be one person, 
but to one person you ARE the World.

It is better to have loved and lost,
than too never have loved at all.

You were the world to so many,
and still are.


Love you and miss you,

Dad

Dear Son,  / Dad
As I sit here remembering my last few days with you, I read my journal and I miss your smile and your kisses.

I want to touch you and smell your sweet skin, I want to feel your touch.

I hope and pray that you loved me as much as I love you.

The rest of my life I'll wonder if there was something else I could've done to change what happened. But I know it was a decision of someone else's need. It was God's need to have you in heaven.
I wish it wasn't,  but it was.

I miss you and love you so much and some day we will be together again.

The love and the caring you gave not to only me, but to your Grandparents and your brothers and sister is something remarkable, they also miss you so much.

Please watch over us and protect us.

I love you and miss you,

Dad
