Too often forgotten...  / Ashleigh Morawski (Friend)
It's so easy to forget. It's been so long. Even I'm guilty of it. We get busy. School, work, relationships, life. Trying to keep up with anything and everything. Trying to keep up with each other. We forget to stop and take time to remember how amazing life really is. We forget to remember the people that mean the most. And then, when we least expect it, we lose them. What is everything coming to? Sometimes I just don't know. Life is so great, but we let it pass by, as if it is nothing. We're too busy to stop and take the time to catch up with people, to see how people are doing. It's so easily forgotten. Life is so easily taken for granted. Life is there to enjoy. To swing on the swings once in a while at the playground. Stop and look at what surrounds you on your way to school or work. How many times will someone ask you what is near your school or work, and you cannot answer them because you never stopped to notice? Probably more often than not. Take a few minutes out of your day to call someone important. Just to say hi. Tomorrow you may not get that chance. And that would be a shame. Slow down. Let life happen. Enjoy things. And don't be in such a hurry to do everything.

I honestly don't know why I am venting to you, Tony. I guess I just felt like that was the best idea. I don't know. You meant a lot to me, but too many times I never told you that. And when it really mattered...when I really should have told you...I didn't. And I'm sorry for that. But I want you to know that I still think about you. Even after so long.

I hope you have a good night.

We miss you...  / Ashleigh Morawski (friend)
It really sucks that Tony had to go so soon. He was only 17, but he is with God in a better place. And his memories will always be with me for sure.

Tony was my first ever high school “boyfriend” at Doherty High School our freshman year. I switched schools in 10th grade and we didn’t stay in touch. None the less, he’s always had a place deep in my heart. I think about him from time to time, even after a decade and a half. He was a nice kid, a good friend and so sweet. Memories are forever. Much love and warm hugs to his mom and others who remember and loved him. Close

Good morning Tony..... Remember my ex spouse and I thinking how wonderful if you and my lovely daughter Ashleigh Caroline were to become a permanent item. Obviously such has come to pass in a somewhat different light. Have lost interaction with Ashleigh due to a variety of circumstances with marital termination of yesteryear. Here in the autumn years of life, miss Ashleigh LOTS. Only knowledge of her is through her cyberspace interaction with you. Fot that I thanx you. Otherwise have no idea of how she is doing as a young woman, student, daughter. Her communiques with you are so genuine and loving. Envious of such..... Close

A quarter of the way there.  / Ashleigh Morawski

It's been so long, T, since I've stopped by. I'm already done with 2 years of school, going on the 3rd. It's hard to believe how fast time flies. You've been gone for so long, and I miss you. I don't know what happens. I mean, you go through every day when you're little, doing whatever you want, and the days seem to go by so slow, but as you start getting older, the days start to zoom by, and if you aren't careful, you're not gonna know what happened, and you're gonna forget what got you where you are today. We're always in a hurry to get things done until we are out of time. It's sad. It really is.

Anyhow, just wanted to stop by and say hi cuz I was thinking about you.

It seems like just yesterday I was starting my third semester of college. Now, only a week or two out from the end of the semester, I am having to retake 2 out of the 3 classes I signed up for this semester. I let myself down. I said I would do better, and I didn't.

Sometimes I wonder if I am going to be a pharmacist. It is all about what you are and who you know. Status is everything these days. But I want to be a pharmacist more than anything.

I don't know who to talk to. It's tough to find friends who won't say anything to anyone else when you tell them things and confide in them. I've almost given up on telling anyone anything. I used to not be able to keep secrets when people confided in me, but now, I see the value of a true friend. I see that it is much more important to keep your word than to please all your friends.

I'm horrible at relationships. I'm beginning to think I won't ever find that one. But then again, I'm pretty sure I have. It's difficult being patient, Tony. It really is. But it's worth it to me, and I won't give up. I am gonna fight until there is no fight left in me. And no matter how long I have to wait, I will. I can't see it being any other way.

I wish I had more time for family. And every time I think about you, I realize I just need to make it, whether or not I have the time. Anything can happen, and I need to spend time with my family when I still have the chance. I don't want to lose them, wishing I had done things differently. I already had to go through that a few times. I don't want to do it again.

Christmas is coming around soon. The semester ends, snowboarding starts, everything gets busy. But only for a month. People rush around and become last minute on everything. But only for a month. And then it calms down for another 11 months.

It snowed yesterday. Finally. We have been waiting and wishing and praying for snow so we can use our season passes, and it finally snowed, but it melted by noon. Hopefully it will just dump snow soon. None of us can wait to get up on the mountain.

I wanna grow up so bad. I keep trying to rush it. I want to be older and farther along with everything, when in reality, I'm just not that close. I am, but I'm trying to be closer than I am, and maybe that's why things are happening the way they are. I don't know. I just don't.

I miss you, Tony. It's just nice to come talk to you because you don't judge. And you can't go and tell other people. You just listen, I think.

I hope you have a good day. Sorry it's been a while.

Ashleigh Close

My son was born Sept.9/88, he passed away Apr.5/2005.  They suspected suicide.  That just didn't make any sense, with all who knew him, and what a great person he was.  But there were signs, that I addressed, bloodshot eyes, headaches, marks on his neck, headaches, and a change in his temperment. Wanting of privacy. He always borrowed my belt, saying his belt was too small. I found him in the basement. I haven't been the same since.  I also found a note in his room.  (we would leave each other notes, so the other one would know, where the other person was)  the paper the note was written on was a year old. There was no more of that paper left.  It said, If I die before I awake, I'm sorry, I never meant for this to happen, Nick.  I found the note when I packed his things away.  I don't think he comtemplated the risk involved, as he knew, I would be home in 1hr. That is why he never put the note out.  I dearly feel your pain, daily, I am so very sorry, that this had to happen to you. I hope you find answers, I know that they help. God Bless Close

I'm Everywhere

Please don't mourn for me I'm still here,
though you don't see I'm right by your
side each night and day
And within your heart I long to stay
My body is gone but I'm always near
I'm everything you feel, see or hear
My spirit is free, but I'll never depart
As long as you keep me alive in your heart
I'll never wander out of your sight
I'm the brightest star on a summer night
I'll never be beyond your reach
I'm the warm moist sand when you're at the beach
I'm the colorful leaves when fall comes around
And the pure white snow that blankets the ground
I'm the beautiful flowers of which you're so fond
The clear cool water in a quiet pond
I'm the first bright blossom you'll see in spring
The first warm raindrop that April will bring
I'm the first ray of light when the sun starts to shine
And you'll see that the face in the moon is mine
When you start thinking there's no one to love you
You can talk to me through the Lord above you
I'll whisper my answer through the leaves on the trees
And you'll feel my presence in the soft summer breeze
I'm the hot salty tears that flow when you weep
And the beautiful dreams that come while you sleep
I'm the smile you see on a baby's face
Just look for me, I'm everyplace...

May God Bless You!!

Thinking of you on this four month anniversary of your passing  / Barb (Mom)

Have you noticed I'm lost in time.
Aimlessly wandering as though I am blind.
Where have you gone,
Son of mine?
I woke up crying this morning
because you are not here.
My heart overflowing with pain and fear.
I'm sure heaven is perfect and that's where you are,
but the distance between us seems so far.
Precious son of mine, this loss is unbearable,
it just can't be true,
I never thought I ever would
be here without you.
I wanted to follow you
But God said no,
He has you now but
I can hardly let go.
I mourn for you with every breath,
I loved you before you were born,
I love you after death.
Beautiful son of mine.
