In Memory

Jeff Stuart Dicks

1957  -  1999  



Little I knew that morning, God was going to call your name.
In Life we loved you dearly, in death we do the same.

It broke our hearts to lose you, you did not go alone
For part of me went with you, the day God called you home.


You left us beautiful memories, your love is still our guide
And though we can not see you, you are always by my side

Our family chain is broken, and nothing seems the same
But as God calls us one by one, the chain will link again.






My Two Little Boys

By Shirley Dicks

God gave me two sons, to have and to love,
Then gave me three daughters from heaven above
My Life was so happy, filled with laughter and care,
my heart so full with plenty to share,
but then  God took my first born,
and left my heart broken, my body all torn

There is no love stronger, than
mothers for a son,
Please tell me Lord, what wrongs I have done

What is the answer, whyíd you take him from me,
 youíve broken my heart, Iíll never be free

 I know our children are only on loan, for mothers to raise,
to love them and hold them, to teach them so true

But how can I go on when your angels came down,
and took both of my sons to heaven with you

Couldnít you leave me just one son here with me,
 just one son to hold, to love, to be free

Just one son to hold, one son to love,
 but your angels took both of them to you up above

My tears keep on falling as I think of the crash,
and pray that the angels held him in their arms

I pray he wasnít in pain when the truck hit the pole
that heís at peace
in heaven with his bro

My arms are so empty, both sons gone away,
 in the arms of the angel, forever to stay

Now my life is over, Iím waiting to see,
the day your angels will come back for me

To be with my sons so I wonít be alone,
 Iíll see them waiting to welcome me home

So hurry please Lord, give me peace while I wait,
and let my sons meet me at your pearly gates

My sons who have known, so few of lifeís joys
 Their life spirits broken, my dear baby boys

My tears will stop falling as I hold them both tight,
 please hurry my time Iíve lost all the fight
