Not by shielding you from all sorrows and pain, But by strengthening you to bear it, as it comes;
Not by making your path easy, But by making you sturdy to travel any path;
Not by taking hardships from you, But by taking fear from your heart;
Not by granting you unbroken sunshine, But by keeping your face bright, even in the shadows;
Not by making your life always pleasant, But by showing you when people and their causes need you most, and by making you anxious to be there to help.
God’s love, peace, hope and joy to you for the year ahead.
Our HOPE is in the PROMISE He gave us-We will all be together again.
God Bless, Sue, Ashley's Mom
It's Xmas Day 1.42am!!! / Mum Mama (Mother) Merry Xmas Darling Jamesey, What a wonderful sight you must have of all the beautiful Xmas lights burning brightly, along with the candles. In total, I had 23 burning tonight! Your 2nd Xmas in Spirit, where does the time go?! We knew you were with us on Saturday, when we had our early 'Xmas' day with Si and Sarah, I'm not sure who got your gift from your cracker though! I miss you so much darling, but also know that you are in a safe place, with unconditional love and immense peace. Grandma is coming tomorrow, so I had better get to bed. Enjoy your evening love. All my love eternally mum xxx
Thank you / Cristen Dees (passerby) Thank you for lighting a candle for Angel Jessica Schmitz. She was one of my best friends, and just recently passed on Dec. 15th. I still can't believe she's gone, but it's comforting to see so many people supporting her family and friends. God bless you and your family and James...he seems like quite an amazing guy. Maybe they will meet in heaven...
Happy Holidays, Cristen Dees friend of ^Jess^
Thinking of you / Teri Drebit (Angel Mom Of Jaime)
Merry christmas from our house to yours with love / Dessa Smith (Friend)
Happy Christmas / Diana&Pauline Of Angel Norma Starkey (Friend)
Thank you.. / Robin Nortrup~Aunt To Angel Eric Shavensky Denise: Thank you for your kind words and for lighting candles for Eric. It is good to hear that things get a little easier as time goes on. I am truly sorry for your loss. James sounds like a wonderful person. I know that he feels your love and his families love and he knows that he will be remember forever.
I can't pretend to understand your pain, but I can only imagine what you must be going through. I feel the pain that my brother and Eric's mom feel and it breaks my heart. I love and miss Eric so much and I can only imagine that it has to be a million times worse for a parent.
My wish for you is that you will always have beautiful memories of James that will comfort you always. I also wish you and your family a blessed holiday season with much peace and happiness.
THINKING OF YOU / LuAnn Mom Of ^j^Bob Demartino (f)
I thought you would like this. Have a Blessed Holiday
HAPPY HOLIDAY LOVE, LUANN AND FAMILY / LuAnn Mom Of ^j^Bob Demartino (friend)
Death The Last Sleep? / Mother Mum (Mum) Death the last sleep?....No, the final awakening - Walter Scott
Seeing death as the end of life, is like seeing the horizon as the end of the ocean - David Searls
There is no death! What seems so is transition; This life of mortal breath Is but a suburb of the life elysian, Whose portal we call Death. - Henry W. Longfellow
JUST KEEP SMILING / Mum Mama! (Mum)
Keep smiling and then it becomes a habit! I'm smiling a lot now James, as you already know, it's great!
Imagination is more important than knowledge. Albert Einstein
The boundaries which divide life from death are at best shadowy and vague. Who shall say where one ends, and the other begins? Edgar Alan Poe
There are no classes in life for beginners: right away you are always asked to deal with what is most difficult. Rainer Maria Rilke
As I grow to understand life less and less, I learn to love it more and more. Jules Renard
Dost thou love life? Then do not squander time, for that is the stuff life is made of. Benjamin Franklin
These are my way of a thankyou, for all the visitors who visit James' site and light candles and leave beautiful tributes, thankyou all so much and I hope some of these Quotes may be of some help, to just one person even who reads it. Smile and laugh as often as possible, it gets rid of the stress, if you can laugh each day at a comedy movie say. The less stress, the better you will feel, as in more positive thoughts, and less negative. Write down what you are Grateful for, if you can't find anything to be Grateful for, just write down that you are Grateful for having the EYES to read this. Love and light to you all, Denise xxx
James agrees, by the way

Not All Doom & Gloom Darling! / Mum (Mum!)
Seeing death as the end of life is like seeing the horizon as the end of the ocean.
Life is a great sunrise. I do not see why death should not be an even greater one.
There is no death! What seems so is transition; This life of mortal breath Is but a suburb of the life elysian, Whose portal we call Death.
-Henry W. Longfellow

Such a Lovely Memorial / Kellie Stepmom Of Angels Tommy And Joey (Passerby) James, first I would like to say your Mum has created a very beautiful memorial. I only wish I could create such a wonderful sight for our Angels Tommy and Joey who also died in a tragic car accident.
I hope you had a Happy Halloween and maybe by chance you were with Tommy and Joey last night. I know heaven is full of alot of lovely angels so that is okay if you were not with them, but I would like to ask a favor of you. Can you please look for our Angels, Tommy and Joey Shoopman and ask them to somehow let us know what happened that took their lives here on earth.
Remember to always watch over your Mum, Dad and family. I do not know your Mum however she must be a wonderful woman to create such a lovely memorial.
Happy Halloween James. / Sue~ Mom To Ashley Trapp Hey James, it's Halloween in the states. If your not sure how it works, when you get candy run from my Ashley she will steal it from you. Your precious memories your family will cherish until you all can make new ones again.
Denise, I will be thinking of you and your family tonight as well as James and all the other angels.
God Bless Sue, Ashley's Mom
Happpy Halloween, James! / Dianne White/Mom Of Angel Nicholas
