We Do Not Need A Special Day


We do not need a special day
To bring you to our minds.
The days we do not think of you
Are very hard to find.

Each morning when we awake,
We know that you are gone.
And no one knows the heart ache
As we try to carry on.

Our hearts still ache with sadness
And secret tears still flow.
What it meant to lose you
No one will ever know.

Our thoughts are always with you,
Your place no one can fill.
In life we loved you dearly;
In death we love you still.

There will always be a heartache,
And often a silent tear.
But always a precious memory
Of the days when you were here.

If tears could make a staircase,
And heartaches make a lane,
We'd walk the path to heaven
And bring you home again.

We hold you close within our hearts;
And there you will remain,
To walk with us throughout our lives
Until we meet again.

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

Hi Brooke and Duane! ;)

I wanted to let you know that even though we are not visibly present in your life, you are in our thoughts and prayers often!

Ever since Andie's memorial, God has brought you to mind frequently and at times that I hurt with you. I can't help but think when God lays you on my heart that maybe those are the times He holds you tight enough so that you take a deep breath and feel His love! I'm hoping that your pain never ceases to be met with God's strength...and that your friends are loving on you guys big time!

Know that my heart has been forever touched by the angel girl that we only knew from a distance. I saw balloons being released last week and all I could do was pray for you and Duane!


If it is not too wierd, maybe there will be an opportunity for us all to get together some time and just fellowship and for us to maybe share the pain with you for a while so that you won't carry it alone!

We love you...
In Jesus,
Becky & Cory Spanko
