Soupal In loving memory of our beautiful baby girl, Jessica Grace Soupal, who passed away seven years ago on March 29, 2003. Millions of tears fall to the ground, And yet… they make no sound. My heart still aching for a sound, …Any sound from you. A laugh, a cry, your first word, Any sound would do. And yet the only thing we ever heard, Was silence from you. No pitter-patter of your feet, No crying did we hear. No screaming when you were ready to eat, No “ma-ma” or “da-da” in our ear. …Just silence, like a falling tear. Oh, we would give anything to have you here. Loving and missing you every day, Happy 7th birthday in Heaven, Jessica! Love Mom, Dad, Thomas, Laurin and Casey

Your last heroic act of sacrificing your life to save your sister’s will be admired by us for all time. You are remembered always and forever as we are challenged every minute of every day to continue without you. In your honor and for your birthday today, my love, the Chiara’s Quiet Grace Foundation is born as we continue your quiet work spreading and teaching selfless acts of kindness. Loving you more today and everyday, Momma, Giles, Landon and Elyse

July 30, 1969 – April 20, 2008   Don’t grieve for me for now I’m free, I’m following the path that God laid for me. I took His hand, when I heard Him call, I turned my back, and left it all. I could not stay another day, To laugh, to love, to work or play. Tasks left undone, they stay that way, I found that place at the close of day. If parting has left a void, Then fill it all with remembered joy. A friendship shared, a laugh, a kiss, Ah, yes, these things I too will miss. Be not burdened now with times of sorrow, I wish you the sunshine of tomorrow. My life’s been full, I’ve savored much, Good friends, good times, a loved one’s touch. Perhaps my time seems all too brief, Don’t lengthen it now with undue grief. Lift up your heart and share with me, God wanted me now, He set me free. Charlie “Char,” son of “Joan,” Mr. and Mrs. Gardner, loving father to Taylor and Trever Benham, beloved brother to many siblings, began his new life in heaven one year ago. You are truly missed by all and will never be forgotten. We will especially remember your free spirit, kind heart and contagious smile. We miss you and love you forever. Alysse, Mikelle, Charlotte, family and friends

In Loving memory of our precious baby girl, Jessica Grace Soupal, who passed into the loving arms of Jesus six years ago, March 29, 2003.   We celebrate your birthday, even though you are not here. Balloons and flowers on your grave, light the candles, say a prayer. You’re not here to blow them out, so we make a wish for you. That everything we hear about heaven being wonderful…is true.   Why I couldn’t be your mother, we’re not meant to understand. So, we hold on to each other, while angels hold your hand.   My precious little girl, with little rose-bud lips. How I long to touch your curls, and give you one last kiss. I only hope you know how much you truly blessed our lives. You’ll forever be a part of us until the day we die.   And when we are a family in Heaven up above, then everyone will truly see… there is no greater love! Loving and missing you so very much,   Love, Mom, Dad,
