On a personal side:
Back in the Stone Age when I was in high school, I had an enemy. I didn't know her name, I didn't even know who she was really. My other friends would say "she said this and this about you" and it really infuriated me. Things were going to come to blows but then we had a class together. Wow. What a difference getting to know someone in person really makes. She sat in front of me and over the semester we became best friends. We have been BEST FRIENDS ever since.
I was standing with her on her front porch one day trying to figure out where we could go to get some air in the basketball, when the ice cream man drove by. We both looked at him, looked at each other, and said, "Dang he's cute!" With big grins, we jumped into her car and off we went to chase this guy down, and we did! We met up with him and they hit it off great, and have been together ever since, 23 years!
Over the years we've had our ups and downs, they've had their ups and downs, but we've always stuck together and been there for each other. She's seen me go through boyfriends, and a marriage/divorce. I had 2 sons, she has 2 daughters. We've gone through the deaths of various people like her parents, my dad, and various grandparents. We have a standing joke about which weighs more, a ton of feathers or a ton of lead. Trick question, I just knew it was, but don't ask!
Anyhow, back in the beginning of 2005, she found out she had breast cancer and had to go through the chemo and radiation and all that. She lost all her beautiful waist length hair, but she never lost faith. She managed to beat the breast cancer, but then started having problems with her medications and went downhill. It's been an ongoing thing but she's always been upbeat about it all. Well, around the middle of February 2007, she called and told me that they found a trace of cancer and was going to have to have treatments all over again. She's a very strong person, I knew she could handle it. It got to be too much and her body finally gave in to the cancer and her family brought her home where she passed away.
Aimee was the worlds biggest "heart" fanatic. She had hearts on everything! You name it, she probably had it, and it didn't matter what it was, if it had a heart on it, she loved it!
Fallen Graver - her contributor bio. She didn't have time to make any memorials because shortly after she joined was when her Doctor found the breast cancer. She went to a lot of cemeteries with me though.
Aimee sent me this poem back at the beginning of 2005, after a short series of deaths in the family, and I've held onto it all this time. I thought it would fit on her page wonderfully.
WHISPERS FROM HEAVEN
They say that life is fleeting
I know that this is true
I left this world so quickly
With no goodbye to you.
I know how much you miss me
Your tears fall ever light
The pillow where you lay your head
Is wet with them at night.
I know your heart is hurting
The words we left, unsaid
I love you's left unspoken
Are spinning in your head.
The strength that I have carried
That served to make you whole
Remains to make you stronger
Within your grieving soul.
For you see, while you were weeping
On the day I passed away
At the gravesite near the flowers
Where my loved ones knelt to pray.
An angel came to see me
She took me by the hand
She led me to a kingdom
In a very distant land.
As I look down from the heaven
And see you standing there
Your heart so ever burdened
With more weight than it can bear.
I long to bring you comfort
I long to give you peace
I long to hold you closely
Cause all your tears to cease.
The joy I've found in heaven
Goes far beyond compare
The love that's so elusive
Can be found here everywhere.
The light is softly shining
There's no storm clouds here or rain
There's no teardrops found in heaven
There's no suffering, there's no pain.
You needn't be so troubled
Stay close to God and pray
That someday we'll be together
One bright and glorious day.
So my love, you shouldn't question
My dear you need not cry
I've gone to be with Jesus
I really didn't die.
Thank you Corey for sponsoring her memorial!!!

Hey, I was reading your memorial today, and it dawned on me that when I started in Find a Grave, I never thought I would be adding you. I thought we would go out and discover more cemeteries. I had fun trying to find the ones we looked for.I still think a...(Read more)|
