♥♥♦♦♦♦♦♥♥DILLON WAS SPECIAL TO ALL OF US♥♥♦♦♦♦♦♥♥
Dillon was only fourteen years old when he took his own life. All of the family members just cannot understand why he wanted to do it. He was such a sweet and caring young boy that just wanted to ride his dirt bike and four wheeler. He just got involved with a boy that was one year older and led him in the wrong direction. His parents and two younger sisters and one older brother miss him so much.
I miss my grandson an awful lot. I just wish that I could have talked to him more and found out what was bothering him.
These songs were played at Dillon's visitation services.

THE RECORDING OF A CEMETERY BY THELMA GREENE REAGAN
Today we walked where others walked
On a lonely, windswept hill.
Today we talked where others cried
For loved ones whose lives are stilled.
Today our hearts were touched
By graves of tiny babies
Snatched from the arms of loving kin
In the heartbreak of the ages.
Today we saw where GRANDPARENTS lay
In the last sleep of their time
Lying under the trees and clouds
Their beds kissed by the sun and wind.
Today we wondered about an unmarked spot
Who lies beneath this hollowed ground?
Was it a babe, child, young or old?
No indication could be found.
Today we saw where MOM and DAD lay
We had been here once before
On a day we'd all like to forget
But will remember forever more.
Today we recorded for kith and kin
The graves of ancestors past
To be preserved for generations hence
A record we hope will last.
Cherish it, my friend; preserve it, my friend,
For stones sometimes crumble to dust
And generations of folks yet to come
Will be grateful for your trust.
