Christopher Lee Ausherman
September 18 1991 - November 19 2000

This memorial is a tribute to christopher who is deeply missed and loved.Christopher was born September18,1991.He was tragicly taken from us on the night of November19,2000. I couldnt believe my sweet Christopher was gone.This page is projects i created with my babys pictures. I hope everyone enjoys them. I sure enjoyed making them.

 

JUST FOR TODAY I WILL TRY TO LIVE THROUGH THE NEXT 24 HOURS AND NOT EXPECT TO GET OVER MY SONS DEATH. BUT INSTEAD LEARN TO LIVE WITH IT. ONE DAY AT A TIME. JUST FOR TODAY, I WILL REMEMBER MY SONS LIFE NOT HIS DEATH, AND BASK IN THE CONFORT OF ALL THOSE TREASURED MOMENTS AND DAYS WE SHARED. JUST FOR TODAY, I WILL SMILE, NO MATTER HOW MUCH I HURT ON THE INSIDE, FOR MAYBE IF I SMILE A LITTLE MY HEART WILL SOFTEN AND I WILL BEGIN TO HEAL. JUST FOR TODAY, I WILL REACH OUT TO CONFORT A RELATIVE OR FRIEND OF MY CHRISTOPHER FOR THEY ARE HURTING TOO. AND PERHAPS WE CAN HELP EACH OTHER. JUST FOR TODAY I WILL FREE MYSELF FROM MY SELF INFLICTED BURDEN OF GUILT, FOR DEEP IN MY HEART I KNOW IF THERE WAS ANYTHING IN THIS WORLD I COULD HAVE DONE TO SAVE MY CHRISTOPHERS FROM DEATH, I WOULD HAVE DONE IT. JUST FOR TODAY, I WILL HONOR MY CHILDS MEMORY BY DOING SOMETHING WITH ANOTHER CHILD, BE IT MY OWN OR SOMEONE ELSES, BECAUSE I KNOW IT WOULD MAKE MY CHRISTOPHER PROUD. JUST FOR TODAY, I WILL OFFER A HAND IN FRIENDSHIP TO ANOTHER PARENT FOR I DO KNOW HOW THEY FEEL. JUST FOR TODAY, I WILL ALLW MYSELF TO BE HAPPY AND ENJOY MYSELF, FOR I KNOW I AM NOT DESERTING HIM BUT LIVING ON.

 

I Miss You MY Sweet Little Man. Life is so sad without you here to share it with us. It seems like it was only yesterday you were here with us. I miss you so much Christopher. I cant wait till the day when were united together again in heaven. And when that day comes i will hold you in my arms and i will never let you go baby.

 

I know my sweet Christopher is now truley an angel. I love you baby, you are my gaurdian angel. Please continue to watch over and protect me, Jessie, and Mikey untill we meet again. Mommy loves you baby.

 

IF ROSES GREW IN HEAVEN LORD PICK A BUNCH FOR ME AND PLACE THEM IN CHRISTOPHERS ARMS AND TELL HIM THERE FROM ME. TELL HIM THAT I LOVE HIM AND I MISS HIM AND WHEN HE TURNS TO SMILE PLACE A KISS UPON HIS CHEEK AND HOLD HIM FOR AWHILE. BECAUSE REMEMBERING HIM IS EASY I DO IT EVERY DAY BUT THERES A ACHE INSIDE MY HEART THAT WILL NEVER GO AWAY.

 

MOM PLEASE LISTEN TO ME AS I TAKE THE TIME TO WRITE. I SEE PARENTS STRUGGLING DAILY, THERE PAIN IS SUCH A FLIGHT... ALL OF US WHO'VE GONE AND LEFT THE REST OF YOU BEHIND... WERE OK, MOM I PROMISE... HEAVEN IS BEAUTIFUL AND GOD IS KIND. YOU USE TO TELL ME THAT ONE DAY GOD WOULD CALL AND TAKE ME HOME. YOU TOLD ME YOU'D MAKE ME STRONG SO I WOULD STAND TALL WHEN ALONE. BUT THINGS HAPPEN MOM THAT DOES NOT GO IN OUR PLANS. I WASN'T SCARED, MOM, WHEN GOD HELD OUT HIS HAND. I DIDN'T WANT TO LEAVE YOU, I DIDN'T HAVE TIME TO SAY GOODBYE, WHEN THE ANGELS SAID, COME WITH US" THERE WASN'T TIME TO QUESTION WHY. I'VE WATCHED YOU DAILY, MOM. IT HURTS TO SEE YOU CRY. I DON'T WANT TO BE UNHAPPY. JUST BECAUSE WE DIDN'T GET TO SAY GOODBYE. TELL OTHERS WHAT IM TELLING YOU, SO MANY PARENTS NEED TO KNOW THAT EARTH WAS JUST A LAYOVER WE HAD ANOTHER PLACE TO GO. I KNOW YOU MISS ME, MOM. I KNOW YOUR HEART WAS BROKEN TWO. BUT GOD REALLY NEEDS ME BECAUSE MY EARTHLY LIFE WAS THROUGH. I'M ALWAYS ALONG SIDE YOU... I SMILE AND TOUCH YOUR HAIR. I WISPHER "MOM I LOVE YOU" YOU JUST CANT SEE ME THERE. I"M THE ONE THAT GENTLY TOUCHES YOU ON YOUR SHOULDER WHEN YOUR SAD. I"M HAPPY NOW THAT YOU FOUND GOD AGAIN, AND ARE NO LONGER MAD. TELL THE PARENTS, MOM, FOR ME THAT ALL OF US KIDS ARE OK. GOD HAD PLANS FOR OUR LIVES WHEN HE CALLED US HOME THAT DAY. I LOVE YOU MOM AND ALWAYS WILL AND REMEMBER I'M NOT FAR AWAY. WE'RE GONNA BE TOGETHER WHEN GOD CALLS OUT YOUR NAME.

 

DON'T GRIEVE FOR ME, FOR NOW I'M FREE. I'M FOLLOWING THE PATH, GOD LAID FOR ME. I TOOK HIS HAND WHEN I HEARD HIM CALL, I TURNED MY BACK AND LEFT THEM ALL. I COULD NOT STAY ANOTHER DAY, TO LAUGH, TO LOVE, TO WORK OR PLAY. TASKS LEFT UNDONE, MUST STAY THAT WAY I FOUND THAT PEACE AT CLOSE OF DAY. IF MY PARTING HAS LEFT A VOID, THEN FILL IT WITH REMEMBERED JOY. A FRIENSHIP SHARED , A LAUGH A KISS. AH YES, THESE THINGS I TOO WILL MISS. BE NOT BURDENED WITH TIMES OF SORROW, I WISH YOU SUNSHINE FOR TOMORROW, MY LIFES BEEN FULL, I SAVORED MUCH, GOOD FRIENDS, GOOD TIMES, A LOVED ONES TOUCH. PERHAPS MY TIME SEEMED ALL TO BRIEF, DON'T LENGTHEN IT WITH UNDO GRIEF. LIFT UP YOUR HEART AND SHARE WITH ME. GOD WANTED ME NOW, HE SET ME FREE.

 

AS WE LIGHT THESE FIVE CANDLES IN HONOR OF YOU, WE LIGHT ONE FOR OUR GRIEF. ONE FOR OUR COURAGE, ONE FOR OUR MEMORIES, ONE FOR OUR LOVE, AND ONE FOR HOPE. THIS CANDLE REPRESENTS OUR GRIEF THE PAIN OF LOOSING IS INTENSE, IT REMINDS US OF THE DEPTH OF OUR LOVE FOR YOU. THIS CANDLE REPRESENTS OUR COURAGE THE COURAGE TO TO CONFORT OUR SORROW, TO CONFORT EACH OTHER AND TO CHANGE OUR LIVES. THIS CANDLE IS IN YOUR MEMORY FOR THE TIMES WE LAUGHED THE TIMES WE CRIED, THE TIMES WE WERE ANGRY AT EACH OTHER, THE SILLY THIGS YOU DID. AND THE CARING AND JOY YOU GAVE US. THIS CANDLE IS THE LIGHT OF LOVE, AS WE ENTER THE HOLIDAY SEASON, DAY BY DAY WE CHERISH THE SPECIAL PLACE IN OUR HEARTS THAT WILL ALWAYS BE RESERVED FOR YOU WE THANK YOU FOR THE GIFT YOUR LIVING HAS BROUGHT TO US. AND THIS CANDLE IS THE LIGHT OF HOPE IT REMINDS US OF LOVE AND MEMORIES OF YOU THAT ARE OURS FOREVER. MAY THE GLOW OF THE FLAME BE OUR SOURCE OF HOPE FOREVER.

 

WE DO NOT NEED A SPECIAL DAY TO BRING YOU TO OUR MINDS. THE DAY WE DO NOT THINK OF YOU ARE VERY HARD TO FIND. EACH MORNING WHEN WE AWAKE, WE KNOW THAT YOU ARE GONE. AND NOONE KNOWS THE HEARTACHE AS WE TRY TO CARRY ON. OUR HEART STILL ACHE WITH SADDNESS AND SECRET TEARS WILL FLOW. WHAT IT MEANT TO LOSE YOU NO ONE WILL EVER NO. ARE THOUGHT ARE ALWAYS WITH YOU, YOUR PLACE NO ONE CAN FILL. IN LIFE WE LOVED YOU DEARLY., IN DEATH WE LOVE YOU STILL. THERE WILL ALWAYS BE A HEARTACHE AND OFTEN A SILENT TEAR BUT ALWAYS A SILENT TEAR.BUT ALWAYS A PRECIUOS MEMORY.

 

LOVE YOU BABY

 

I MISSED YOU YESTERDAY AND LOOKED FOR YOU AMONG THE ARTIFACTS OF YOUR LIFE. YOUR ROOM WITH PICTURES, THE CLOTHES THAT STILL CARRIED YOUR SCENT. YOUR FAVORITE FOOTBALL AND DRAWINGS THE TAPES YOU LOVED TO HEAR. THE VERY WALLS ECHOED YOUR VITALITY AND CARRIED FAIN MEMORIES OR RIOTOUS LAUGHTER. AND SO I SIT THERE, COMFORTED FOR A WHILE,BUT FORCED ATLAST TO CONFESS THAT ALTHOUGH BEAUTIFUL MEMORIES LINGERED YOU WERE NOT THERE.NOT THEN AND NEVER AGAIN. IF I COULD NOT FIND YOU YESTERDAY, WHERE, THEN CAN I LOOK TODAY? WHO CAN I TALK TO, IMPLORE, BEG TO SHOW ME THIS WAY? WHERE ARE THE HIDDEN DOORWAYS TO THE SIGNS AND WONDERS OTHERS CLAIM TO SEE? MY MISSING BRING ME NO ANSWERS SO I MUST TAKE A WALK TO CLEAR MY MIND. AHEAD, I SEE CHILDREN PLAYING, AND THERE LAUGHTER FLOATING IN THE WIND REMINDS ME OF YOUR OWN CARFREE APROACH TO LIFE. THIER RUNNING MIRRORS YOUR OWN ABANDON AND THE WAY YOU ALWAYS FOUND JOY IN SIMPLE THINGS. CAN THIS BE THE ANSWER TO THE RIDDLE OF FINDING YOU AGAIN? CAN IT BE THAT I WILL HEAR YOU IN EVERY MOMENT OF LAUGHTER? THAT I WILL SEE YOU IN THE ACTIONS OF A MISCHIEVIOUS FRIEND, THAT I FEEL YOU IN EVERY TOUCH OF COMPASSION? I'VE ALWAYS HEARD THAT IF YOU SEEK, YOU WILL FIND. PERHAPS THE CAROLLARY TO THAT IS THAT YOU MUST SEEK IN THE RIGHT PLACES. I;VE BEEN LOOKING IN THE SCRAPBOOK OF ALL THAT USE TO BE AND FOUND ONLY MOMENTARY SOLACE. SO LET ME LOOK FOR YOU A NEW IN ALL THE WONDERS AND BLESSING OF LIFE, I BELIEVE YOU ARE REFLECTED THER WITH EVERY EXSPRESSION OF HAPPINESS AND JOY, IN EVERY INSTANCE OF FEARLESS ORATION AND WITH EVERY ACT OF UNCONDITIONAL LOVE

 

A LIMB HAS FALLEN FROM THE FAMILY TREE, I KEPT HEARING A VOICE THAT SAID DONT GRIEVE FOR ME. REMEMBER THE BEST TIMES, THE LAUGHTER, THE SONGS THE GOOD OF MY LIFE WHILE STILL STRONG. CONTINUE MY HERITAGE, IM COUNTING ON YOU, KEEP SMILING, AND SURLEY THE SUN WILL SHINE THROUGH. MY MIND IS AT EASE, MY SOUL IS AT REST, REMEMBERING ALL... HOW I WAS TRULEY BLESSED. CONTINUE TRADITIONS, NO MATTER HOW SMALL, GO ON WITH YOUR LIFE, DONT JUST STARE AT THE WALL. I MISS YOU ALL DEARLY, SO KEEP UP YOUR CHIN, UNTILL THAT DAY COMES, THAT WERE TOGETHER AGAIN.

 

I SURE DO MISS YOU

 

I MISS YOU MORE EVERY DAY

 

THINKING OF YOU ALWAYS AND EVERY SECOND OF THE DAY

 
 

THE LIGHT HAS GONE OUT OF MY LIFE....I MISS YOU SO VERY MUCH HONEY
