This memorial is dedicated solely to Gerrick, my son, and is sacred and placed on Find A Grave exclusively.
Gerrick was born on a mild winter day in January. That day was the happiest day of my life, when I gave birth to my son. He was a beautiful baby, my pride and joy, my baby boy. My baby grew into a wonderful, caring, giving young man. He was loving, kind and gentle, and he had a big kind heart and soul. He was shy, modest and polite. He was humane; always civil in the way he lived and treated others. He was genuine, honest trusting and true. He was so positive about every issue. He respected others and he was very dependable. He would do anything to help anyone. He loved life. His laugh was hearty and his smile always made me happy. He was serious as well. Gerrick was good-natured; an independent free spirit who cared deeply about his family, friends and fellowman. His life was full of promise and he was only a teenager. He had just turned 18 years old. My child was so happy to turn 18, a real milestone. He was just starting his young life and future. He was a very special devoted son brother uncle nephew great-nephew and friend. My one and only beloved son was my world. He made life a gift. My eyes lit up every time I looked into his handsome face. I'm empty and lost without him. I long for my Gerrick every second of every day and love and miss him more than words can ever say.
Gerrick was at home minding his own business when he was murdered. I will never ever forget that heartbreaking horrifying day. While I was out, I was calling Gerrick on his cell phone and he wasen't answering. He didn't answer our home phone either. I knew where he was. He was safe at home. When I got home I found my precious son Gerrick lying on his bedroom floor brutally murdered. That was the saddest, worst day of my entire life, something that is unimaginable to most people. I think about my child lying there every day and I mourn for him and miss him more and more every moment.
A special heartfelt thank you to Wendyforever21 for doing this site, and to Cindy Kaut-White for sponsoring it. A special heartfelt thank you to Tony's mom, Michelle, as well for the beautiful pictures she added for my son. And, for all those that came by and left flowers notes and moving pictures, thank you. Gerrick and I appreciate it.
Thank you for stopping by,
Diane Davies, Gerrick Davies mother forever
FOREVER LOVED HONORED AND CHERISHED
Cause of Death: MURDERED
The following link is one of the first memorials I wrote for my Gerrick. I wrote this in April, 2005 on Griefnet.
In Loving Memory Of Gerrick Davies
The "G" in Gerrick's name is pronounced the same way the "G" in the word Good and Great is pronounced, and my son Gerrick was oh so good, he was the greatest, the most loving son, brother, uncle and friend. He is my youngest child and my only son. He has two older sisters.
I love you Gerrick, and miss you soooooooo much. I miss everything about you my dear son, and I'm so honored to be your mother. My heart aches for you my son. Seeing you on this memorial deeply hurts me so very much. You should be enjoying your young life and every single moment of your future. My mere words can never adequately describe how truly wonderful you are. I love you.
Forever loving you, and always longing for you, and missing you. Love, Mama
GERRICK B. DAVIES
I WANTED TO LIVE AND GROW OLD, NOT GET MURDERED
