    Default remembering jodee...4 mos today

    here is a poem my 16 yr old son wrote last night in remembrance of jodee

    Suffered Awakening From Hell

    Four months have gone by
    And it seems, as if it were yesterday
    A fatal accident that no one saw coming
    Broke our hearts, as if a dove were to die
    As sadness sweeps through the underlying skies
    And pain hangs high over the sorrowing flies
    A fire emerges, from great down below
    It sneaks up behind you, and whispers hello
    Seems as though you have fallen to hell
    The weakness comes, and its too hard to tell
    As you walk around and around
    Your smile goes down and down until you've completely frowned
    No matter what anybody says, you can't be happy
    Even if the words come, from your dear old pappy
    Although you have suffered a great deal of pain
    You have to try and overcome, and try to restrain
    Try and block out the pain
    But Never Ever forget the memories

    Matt Steenburg, 7/11/05

    Hollidaze, that was remarkably moving. Tell your son that he is quite gifted at expressing himself. The visual of the horrors sneaking up behind you when you weren't looking was powerful to say the least. I'm so sorry for your loss - I take it Jodee was a younger son/daughter? I'll say a prayer for your family's strength and continued healing.

    Thank you for sharing.

    as always, holli

    Matt,

    You are very gifted with writing and a wonderful brother. I have such empathy and complete lack of understanding for you and your mom's loss, but, I have learned strength from you guys. Your family is a great inspiration to me and you are always in my thoughts and prayers.


    Love ya, holli.........

    Nice job, Matt. I wish you didn't have to suffer the experience to know such pain. Keep on writing. You have a knack for creating visual impressions!

    Hollidaze - Why don't you post a link to the scholarship fund? If there's a way to paypal it, or if you have an address, it'd be nice to know. There's more of us who'd like to contribute; many of us didn't know about Jodee til this thread. Thanks.
