JASON HIGHET    OUR HEARTS WENT WITH YOU.......




I have lost a life-not my own, but it would have been easier to have lost
my own life than to have lost the life I loved more than my own,
JASON




When Jason was killed, we not only buried him but also the life
 that we knew and lived everyday. When he died, we also buried
 his future: wife, children, his wedding day and our future grandchildren.
 Into the corner of Jason's casket is his once happy dad: my Eddie.
We buried my daughter's only sibling.
We buried her future nieces and nephews. 
There is not enough room in Jason's casket for all the things that died along with him. Dreams, hopes, joys, lives, hearts and souls slipped into that casket

with Jason



THE LOSS OF A SON!
He is not far--no further away  
than the morning is to the promise of day,
than the stars to the night, than the sun to the sky....
HE IS NOT FAR--THIS IS NOT GOODBYE.
He is not far--he is always near in the memories
that we hold most dear, in the hearts that still care,
in the love that goes on...he will never be far,
HE WILL NEVER BE GONE.



IN MEMORY OF OUR LOVING SON AND BROTHER,
JASON
YOU ARE LOVED FOREVER UNTIL THE END OF TIME
WE WILL NEVER GET OVER LOSING YOU.

 
 
                                      
  
              Jason & Ed were more than father & son. They were best friends.
        When Jason was killed, Ed not only lost his one & only son he was
                                      robbed of his best buddy for life.
                    And that will break my heart for Ed & for Jason forever.


                                                                        

                           WE ARE HERE, YOU & ME SIDE BY SIDE FOR ALWAYS
                                                                     

                                                          You will always be my dad...
                       as I sit and look down from the heavens above,
                                   I point at you and proudly say:
                                "look, look, over there, that's him:

                                            "THAT'S MY DAD"


                          

                                                    My love for you is forever Jason:
                                  today, tomorrow and everyday
                              until you and I are with one another.
                                     I will always love you my son.
  

  
                                                                      
                                               
                                             My dad is a survivor, which is no surprise to me.
                          I walk with my dad each day to lift him when he's down.
                     My dad is like a tower of strength. He is the greatest of them all.
                                              I am his power when he's sad. 
                               I hold his hand, pat his shoulder and tell him I am okay.
                   
  Now as I watch over my saddened dad from the heavens above.....
                     He says he's the one who's so proud of me, but I say it's my honor
                                                      dad that I am called:
 
                                                         YOUR SON.


                                                                                    
  
                    I know your heart is broken from the pain of losing me
                    But one day we will finally meet in heaven
                          And it will be forever you and me

                                                                           
                When this road gets lonely and the journey seems too hard
                 and I get to feeling sick inside that I didn't get a card-
                 if I close my eyes I can almost hear you say,
                 "I love you DAD & I miss you~~Happy Father's Day".
       

                      MY  SON,  MY  FRIEND,  MY HERO 

                  
                            SI
NCE YOU LEFT US:
                       
Ever since you left us nothing has been the same
                     All of our happiness has turned to tears
                     As our worst fear came upon us
                     Everyday I wonder why it had to happen to you
                     In everything I look at ~~ I see you
                    And in everything I do I can only think of you
                    Knowing things happen for a reason
                    Does not help us to understand
                    You had your entire life ahead of you
                    And suddenly without warning it all came to an end


                                   
                         A Message to Jason

              We walked together, you and I
              A  father
and his son
             We had Hopes and Dreams for tomorrow.....

              But tomorrow didn't come.
             We walked together you and I
             We talked, we laughed we lived.
             We shared so many happy times,
             And for that I thank the Lord above.
             We walked together, you and I
             But only for a short time.
             For all too soon it ended
             Leaving pieces of a broken heart behind
            And even though I miss you
            More than words could ever say.
            I thank God that I got to walk with you
           Every precious moment of every day....

                        

                         I WALK BESIDE YOU, WHEREVER YOU ARE,
                    WHATEVER IT TAKES NOT MATTER HOW FAR

     

            
                               

                                      


                                     
                                   

                             ALLISON, FOREVER A SISTER TO JASON - -
                             MUST NOW LIVE WITHOUT HER BROTHER
      WHEN MY OLDER BROTHER WAS KILLED, I BECAME AN ONLY CHILD

                                     


                                                
                   WHERE ARE YOU? PLEASE COME BACK HOME, DON'T LEAVE ME HERE
             A
LONE. JASON, LIFE WITHOUT YOU HERE JUST ISN'T THE SAME. YOU
            
ARE SO FAR AWAY AND I MISS YOU MORE EVERY PASSING DAY. WHY
             
DID YOU HAVE TO LEAVE?  ONE DAY DEATH TOOK YOU AWAY FROM ME.
                                             
JASON, I LOVE YOU.
                                                                           
                                                           

       

                                                             A BROTHER IS FOREVER

                                                  That is what they say.
                  When you loose a loved one their soul goes to heaven.
                  That's what happened to me for I lost my ONLY brother.
                  I just always assumed Jason would be here forever.
                  I know that I will see him again one day and I will never forget him ever
                  Because I know deep within my heart . . . . .

                                            
A BROTHER IS FOREVER  


                                    

  

                                       
         
                        MY  BROTHER  NOW  IN  HEAVEN
                                                                   
                
There is always a face before me, a voice I would love to hear
                A smile I will always remember of a brother I loved so dear.
                Deep in my heart lives a picture more precious than silver or 
                gold. It is a picture of my brother, whose memory will never
                grow old.
  

                    
                  

                                                                                                                                                                                                                 
                       I LOOK AT MY BROTHER THEN I LOOK
AT ME WITHOUT MY
                   BROTHER WHERE
WOULD I HAVE BEEN?  MY FRIEND, MY                 
                   BROTHER, MY SHADOW, MY WORLD. WHERE WOULD I BE
                   WITHOUT MY BROTHER?  TEARS, LAUGHS, SMILES, JOKES

                     
 
       
                I'LL NEVER FORGET YOU UNTIL THE DAY OF MY DEATH
                 BEST BROTHER FOREVER UNTIL MY LAST BREATH


                                    

              
JASON NEVER GOT TO SEE HIS SISTER WORKING AT DISNEY
              
                                                                                                                         

                            TO THE WORLD YOU ARE ONE PERSON, BUT TO US
                                                       YOU ARE THE WORLD


                 

            FOR PARENTS WHOSE CHILD HAS DIED, TIME DOES
            SO LITTLE EXCEPT TO CONTINUALLY REMIND US OF
           EXACTLY HOW MUCH WE HAVE LOST
                                                      
 

                                  

                                                               

                                                   " WHAT DID I DO WRONG?"

                                      WHAT DID I DO THAT WENT SO WRONG?
                                       I TRIED TO TEACH YOU TO BE WISE AND STRONG,
                                       I LOOKED FORWARD TO SEEING YOU WITH FAMILY
                                                                   AND HOME,
                                       I DIDN'T KNOW IT WOULD BE EARTH AND STONE.

                                       I'LL NEVER SEE YOU WALK DOWN THAT AISLE,
                                       I'LL NEVER AGAIN SEE THAT WONDERFUL SMILE.
                                       MY HEART IS BREAKING THAT MUCH I CAN SAY,
                                       I CAN'T WAIT TO SEE YOU ON SOME DISTANT DAY.
 

                                       I AM NO LONGER AFRAID OF DYING,
                                       SOMETIMES I THINK IT IS BETTER THAN CRYING,
                                       OUR DEAR, JASON, ONE DAY WE WILL BE
                                        TOGETHER AND WE WILL REMAIN LIKE THAT
                                                           FOREVER AND EVER

                                    

    
                      NO AMOUNT OF TIME......WILL EVER MAKE THE HEART ......

                                                                  THE SAME......AGAIN
                        


   

                          IT BROKE OUR HEARTS TO LOSE YOU,
                          YOU DID NOT GO ALONE
                          FOR A PART OF US WENT WITH YOU
                          THE DAY GOD CALLED YOU HOME

                      
                                 
 

             OUR FAMILY CHAIN IS BROKEN, AND NOTHING SEEMS THE SAME
             BUT AS GOD CALLS US ONE BY ONE, THE CHAIN WILL LINK AGAIN


              
                                 

                        
I am tired of longing for my child.
                      I am tired on not being happy.
                      I am tired of telling people my son is dead.
                      I am tired of my son being dead.
                      I am tired of not being able to remember what joy feels like.
                      I am tired of being angry.
                      I am tired of feeling guilty.
                      I am tired of missing my son.
                      I am tired of being told it is a blessing I have an angel in heaven.
                      I am tired of having to explain myself.
                      I am so tired of death.
                      I am so tired of grieving.
                      I am tired of grief.
                      I am tired of asking why.
                      I am tired of not getting an answer.
                      I am tired of having to learn to live without Jason.
                      I am tired of being indirectly told to "get over it".
                      I am tired of reliving the night of his death over and over.
                      I am tired of endless hours at the cemetery.
                      I am tired of that street corner.
                      I am so, so tired of not being able to remember...
                      Every moment of my son's life.
                      I am tired of being tired.
