A poem about depression.  / Ryan (Youngest Son )  Read >>
A poem about depression.  / Ryan (Youngest Son )

As rain flows my tears grow.

Because of that i have no heart.

My heart is in a life support so very ill.

My vocabulary grows on and on but when it grows the rain keeps flowing and then my tears grow.

Tears drop from the carpet. It stains it very badly.

illness is not fun exciting or greatful.

Life support costs me a fortune i can't afford it.

So when i try and try to keep it alive it won't work.

As this poem shorts out so does my heart's time to beat.

beat..beat..beat..BZZ..BZZ

It's gone and so will i be in just a f-....

Thanks for being the dad i got to knew i just wanted to know you a little longer.

 

Best wishes

Ryan T. Nelepovitz.

A lifetime away  / Mary (Wife & mother to his children )

A Lifetime Away

The leaves have fallen from the trees
And summer days are gone.
Lingering twilight in the chilling breeze
And the end of the robin's song.

All of my life I searched for you
Not knowing it until that day
When you appeared out of the blue
After almost a lifetime away.

Somehow we knew that time would fly
And yet we embraced our love.
We had time to laugh and sometimes cry
And we thanked our Father above.

We now had hope for each new day
And each other to comfort at night.
You always had something tender to say
And made everything seem all right.

When sickness came and would not leave
With courage I watched you fight.
We prayed each day and tried to believe
That somehow it would be all right.

But time was slipping away...
Faster each day it seemed.
With dignity and grace you continued to pray
And at night of Heaven we dreamed.

Heaven is where you are its true
Above the storm clouds and rain
Where the sky is so eternally blue
And there is no more sickness or pain.

Time is passing still faster each day
And at night I miss holding your hand
But I remember you taught me to pray
And to believe in the Promised Land.

The trees will be dressed in leaves so new
And summer days will re-appear.
Twilight will become the eternal blue
And the robin will sing so clear.

It is a great comfort to know that you
Are not really so far away
And you will appear out of the blue
After almost a lifetime away.

 

I love you Ron.  So very much.

Pain, Pain... Go Away  / Mary (Fiance)  Read >>
Pain, Pain... Go Away  / Mary (Fiance)
Pain, Pain…Go Away
by Linda Davis
Here it comes again…
I can only escape it for a while.
How am I to go on without him here beside me?
Pain, pain…Go away. Come again another day.
When I am feeling stronger

Here it comes again…
The searing in my heart and soul.
How can I face another day when I don’t know where he is?
Pain, pain…go away. Come again another day
When I have grown wiser.

Here it comes again…
The sun is rising on its own.
How can this be when my world has crumbled all around me?
Pain, pain…go away. Come again another day.
When I can feel warmer.

Here it comes again…
I feel the raindrops on my head.
Hear all the sounds of life, though my own is silent without them.
Pain, pain…Go away. Come again another day.
When I am less faltering.

Here it comes again…
But wait! What’s this?
Somehow the months have flown and I don’t know how this happened?
Pain, pain…Go away. Come again another day.
When I am more courageous.

Yes. Here it comes again…
But this time, not so bad.
Have I found relief, when I thought none was possible?
Pain, pain…Go away. Come again another day
When I have become older.

Yes. Come again when I am older
When time has made me feel it less.
When the sun warms me again and I can see all the way to heaven.
Pain, pain. Go away. Come again another day.
When I am no longer hindered.

Come again when my time is through.
And I can see for myself
God’s home and his angels shining brightly to welcome me there.
Pain, pain. Go away. Come again another day…

He is Gone  / Susan (Sister)  Read >>
He is Gone  / Susan (Sister)

You can shed tears that he is gone,
Or you can smile because he lived,
You can close your eyes and pray that he will come back,
Or you can open your eyes and see all that he has left.

Your heart can be empty because you can't see him
Or you can be full of the love that you shared,
You can turn your back on tomorrow and live yesterday,
Or you can be happy for tomorrow because of yesterday.

You can remember him and only that he is gone
Or you can cherish his memory and let it live on,
You can cry and close your mind be empty and turn your
back,
Or you can do what he would want: smile, open your eyes,
love and go on.

Oh, how much you are missed.  / Mary (your best friend )  Read >>
Oh, how much you are missed.  / Mary (your best friend )
Ron, you loved me from the beginning.  From the first night we stayed up until 5am talking like crazy.  At that point, I knew you were the best friend anybody could have.

You treated my kids as your own.  Once we knew we were expecting Jared, you did a reality check.  With good reason.

You came back and dedicated yourself to our family.  Yours and mine.

You stopped at NO boundaries to make us all comfortable.  You went to all ends of the earth to do so, never worrying about yourself.

That continued throughout the nearly 12 years we were together.  I tried to remind to you to stop and take time for your wants, but you always blew that away.

I just want to tell you that even though we didn't finish everything we planned on accomplishing together ... that I am not going to forget those plans.  

You are in my head and my heart and I will continue to continue our life, with your ideals in mind.

You are the best father a kid could want and the best friend/love that a girl could ever ask for.

I know the circumstances are surreal... but please know that I love you more than anything else in (or out) of this world.

It's taken me a long time to post here... but it wasn't because I didn't have anything to say.  I just wasn't ready.

You are in our lives everyday, and that won't change.  I just hope you are proud of me in my decisions and my choices I make for our kids and family in general.

You are so important to me.  You have no idea what an impact you left on my life and I thank you for it.   I miss you so much.

Let me try to make this less sad and just say, I can't wait to see you again.  We have a lot to talk about.  I love you!

God took you home  / Mom (Mother)

God saw you getting tired 
And a cure was not to be, 
So he put his arms around you,
And whispered, "Come to Me"
With tearful eyes we watched you,
And saw you pass away;
Although we loved you dearly,
We could not make you stay.
A golden heart stopped beating,
Hard working hands at rest;
God broke our hearts to prove to us, 
He Only takes the best.

We love you!!!!  Mom

Imagine / Kimberly (niece)
 
Imagine he's in Heaven,
It's easy if you try.
And he's all around us.
Doesn't want us to cry.
He would want the family
living for the day.

Imagine he wants no sorrow,
I know it's hard to do.
He would want us to live for
all the Happy memories, too;
Imagine all friends and family,
He would want us all at Peace.

You may say I'm a dreamer,
but I'm not the only one.
I know some day we will join him,
and we'll be together as one.

He imagines all our emotions,
I'm sure that he can.
He knows our need for sadness
and he helps us when he can.
Imagine all the people,
sharing in our grief.

You may say I'm a dreamer,
but I'm not the only one.
I hope friends and family join us,
and we will all go on as one.

A Message from Heaven  / Susan (Sister)


When tomorrow starts without me
and I'm not here to see...
If the sun should rise and find you
eyes filled with tears for me,

I wish so much you wouldn't cry
the way you did today...
While thinking of the many things
we didn't get to say.

I know how much you love me,
as much as I love you...
And each time you think of me,
I know you'll miss me, too.

But when tomorrow starts without me,
please try to understand...
That Jesus came and called my name
and took me by the hand,

He said my place was ready
in Heaven far above...
And that I'd have to leave behind
all those I dearly love.

So when tomorrow starts without me,
don't think we're far apart...
For every time you think of me,
I'm right there in your heart.

Thinking of You with Love


We thought of you with love today,
But that is nothing new.
We thought about you yesterday,
and the days before that too.
We think of you in silence,
We often speak your name.
All we have are memories,
And your picture in a frame.
Your memory is our keepsake,
With which we will never part.
God has you in His keeping,
We have you in our hearts.
A million times we’ve wanted you.
A million times we cried.
If love could only have saved you,
You never would have died.
It broke our hearts to lose you.
But you didn’t go alone.
For part of us went with you…..
The day God called you home.

Safely Home  / Roberta Nelepovitz (mom)



I am in Heaven, dear ones;
Oh, so happy and so bright!
There is perfect joy and beauty
In this everlasting light.

All the pain and grief is over,
Every restless tossing passed;
I am now at peace forever,
Safely home in Heaven at last.

Did you wonder I so calmly 
Trod the valley of the shade?
Oh! but Jesus' love illumined
Every dark and fearful glade.

And He came Himself to meet me 
In that way so hard to tread;
And with Jesus' arm to lean on,
Could I have one doubt or dread?

Then you must grieve so sorely,
For I love you dearly still:
Try to look beyond earth's shadows,
Pray to trust our father's will.

There is work still waiting for you,
So you must not idly stand;
Do it now, while like remaineth-
You shall rest in Jesus' land.

When that work is all completed,
He will gently call you Home;
Oh, the rapture of that meeting,
Oh, the joy to see you come!

no poem  / Mary (loved one )
I am not a poet.

But I have genuine love and admiration for Ron.

I don't think I can adequately explain how losing him has affected me.  But I do know that his loss has affected his entire family ... deeply.

He would be really proud of his family for coming together on this site and just spilling their guts... without any snags.

This was the hardest life experience I've ever had to face and I didn't have to do it alone.  His family came together and formed a circle of love.  I'm sure that he knows that.  I'm sure that's he is resting at peace because of it.

His family meant the world to him.   He probably didn't mention that with each and every phone call that he made.  But he told me.  I told him he was one of the luckiest men on earth to have that many people to care about and to be cared about.

God bless you all!!!! Close

Ron:

The night was dark and lonely,
The sky was filled with gray,
We felt our hearts were broken the night you went away.
But we'll pull ourselves together and we'll get stronger day by day
Knowing that again we'll see you in Gods house someday.

We will truely miss you and we love you.

Love,
Brian, Michele and Family

Take the time~  / Susan (sister)  Read >>
Take the time~  / Susan (sister)
Too often we don't realize
what we have until it is gone
Too often we wait too late to say
"I'm sorry - I was wrong."


Sometimes it seems we hurt the ones
we hold dearest to our hearts
And we allow foolish things
to tear our lives apart.


Far too many times we let
unimportant things into our minds
And then it's usually too late
to see what made us blind.


So be sure that you let people know
how much they mean to you
Take that time to say the words
before your time is through.


Be sure that you appreciate
everything you've got
And be thankful for the little things
in Life that mean a lot.


Growing old
is a priviledge denied to many
Never leave behind regrets Close

....... a poem .......  / Mare (the love of his life )
Recently I dreamed I talked to you.
You were in the desert, and you said
That I would never want for love, for you
Would love me now until the end of time.
I cannot think that you are wholly gone,
That one day you could simply be no more,
And it should come about that your bright soul
Would vanish like a rainbow in the darkness.

For me it is as if you were away,
Somewhere on a very long vacation.
And though I know you're gone, you do not seem
To be beyond the boundaries of my love.

Our souls do not abide in days or hours
But in a love that never, never ends.
You will be with me till life is over,
Then I with you somewhere beyond the stars.

Already there  / DEB (sister)
 Ron,



   Just wanted to let you know that you are thought of so much by so many people. I hope you realize how much I loved you and still do. I am sorry we didn't get to see each other that much over the years. 

   You have opened my eyes to so many things and made me realize how short life is and what we all need to do before we leave this earth.


   I hope you hear me talking to you lately on those long road trips and probably complaining to. 

   There is one song that has been on the radio from the time you were sick until you left us. I hear it everyday around the same time and I cry everytime I hear it. I'm already there......is the song.

   I no I will see  you again but in the mean time I will take you along on my daily drives............to bad we weren't going some place go besides Wal-marts.

I love you :)   Close

A Message from Ron  / Susan (sister)
Mary this is for you and the boys..

 Some things I'd like to say
 but first of all to let you know
that I arrived okay
I'm writing this from Heaven
where I dwell with God above
where there's no more tears
or sadness there
is just eternal love
Please do not be unhappy
just because I'm out of sight
remember that I'm with you
every morning, noon and night
That day I had to leave you
when my life on Earth was through
God picked me up and hugged me
and He said I welcome you
It's good to have you back again
you were missed while you were gone
as for your dearest family
they'll be here later on
I need you here so badly
as part of My big plan
there's so much that we have to do
to help our mortal man
Then God gave me a list of things
He wished for me to do
and foremost on that list of mine
is to watch and care for you
And I will be beside you
every day and week and year
and when you're sad
I'm standing there
to wipe away the tear
And when you lie in bed at night
the days chores put to flight
God and I are closest to you
in the middle of the night
When you think of my life on Earth
and all those loving years
because you're only human
they are bound to bring you tears
But do not be afraid to cry
it does relieve the pain
remember there would be no flowers
unless there was some rain
I wish that I could tell you
of all that God has planned
but if I were to tell you
you wouldn't understand
But one thing is for certain
though my life on Earth is o're
I am closer to you now
than I ever was before
And to my very many friends
trust God knows what is best
I'm still not far away from you
I'm just beyond the crest
There are rocky roads ahead of you
and many hills to climb
but together we can do it
taking one day at a time
It was always my philosophy
and I'd like it for you too
that as you give unto the World
so the World will give to you
If you can help somebody
who is in sorrow or in pain
then you can say to God at night
my day was not in vain
And now I am contented
that my life it was worthwhile
knowing as I passed along the way
I made somebody smile
So if you meet somebody
who is down and feeling low
just lend a hand to pick him up
as on your way you go
When you are walking
down the street
and you've got me on your mind
I'm walking in your footsteps
only half a step behind
And when you feel the gentle breeze
or the wind upon your face
that's me giving you a great big hug
or just a soft embrace
And when it's time for you to go
from that body to be free
remember you're not going
you are coming here to me
And I will always love you
from that land way up above
Will be in touch again soon
P.S. God sends His Love

Poem / Susan (sister)
We little knew that morning that God was going to call your name,

In life we loved you dearly, in death we do the same.

It broke our hearts to lose you, you did not go alone,

For part of us went with you, the day God called you home.

You left us peaceful memories, your love is still our guide,

And though we cannot see you, you are always at our side.

Our family chain is broken, and nothing seems the same,

But as God calls us one by one, the chain will link again

To My Little Brother With Love  / Carl Nelepovitz (Big Brother )
The glory of love is not the outstretched hand, not the kindly smile, not the joy of companionship; it is the spiritual inspiration that comes to one when he discovers that someone believes in him and is willing to trust him with his love. 

That was my brother he loved life to the fullest and he enjoyed each day as if it was his last. I will surely miss the time and love that we shared as brothers, he was my best friend and my heroe.
 
My life will never be the same bro you left all of us to soon and for that I'll have to say thanks for what you gave me and the last few months we spent together on the road... I will truely miss you always and I will see you again one day. You had made me so proud of all you had done in the last 12 year of your life..."what a guy"! I Will Love You forever my clock rings everyday at 11:30 to just stop and say I love Ya!
