Something I'm posting to Natalie from Addison  / Taylor Stocks (Soon-to-be Sister-in-Law )

If pretty daisies grow in heaven Lord pick a bunch for me.  Place them in my sister's arms and tell her they're from me.  Tell her that I love and miss her and when she turns to smile place a kiss upon her cheek and hold her for a while.  Because remembering her is easy I do it every day. There's an ache within my heart that will one day go away.


Although I never knew you physically Natalie i feel as though you were my best friend. I don't exactly know the feeling that i have... it feels like I have lost someone very dear to me. As i grow closer to your brother your dad and your mom I miss not being able to grow close to you also. Addison and my brother are very close and I wish you were here to share the bond with me that they share with one another. Addison and i will be going to the Columbia Temple to be married next Mei. I know your spirit will be there with us and I am so happy that I will one day be able to grow close to you as a sister. I love your family dearly and it hurts me that something so special (you) was taken away from them. I know you and am so close to you through your family. I think of you and smile then tears come to my eyes. It is strange to miss someone you didn't even know but I know it is because of my love for your family. I look forward to being in your family for this life and for the eternities to come.

Today was Five Years  / Amy Purser (Friend)
For Natalie Renee Housand
11/11/1984 -12/19/2004

Today made five years . . . I found this poem and thought of you . I love you and I miss you very much!!! Merry Christmas in Heaven!!!

I see the countless Christmas trees around the world below.
With tiny lights like Heaven's stars reflecting on the snow.
The sight is so spectacular please wipe away that tear;
For I am spending Christmas with Jesus this year.

I hear the many Christmas songs that people hold so dear.
But the sounds of music can't compare with the Christmas choir up here.
I have no words to tell you the joy their voices bring.
For it is beyond description to hear the angels sing.

I know how much you miss me I see the pain inside your heart.
But I am not so far away we really aren't apart.
I cannot tell you of the splendor or the peace inside this place
Can you imagine Christmas with our Savior face to face?

I will ask him to light your spirit as I tell him of your love.
So then pray for one another as you lift your eyes above.
So be happy for me dear ones you know I hold you dear.
And be glad I'm spending Christmas with Jesus this year.

I sent you each a special gift from my heavenly home above.
I sent you each a memory of my undying love.
After all love is a gift more precious than pure gold.
It was always most important in the stories Jesus told.

Please love and keep each other as my Father said to do.
For I can't count the blessings or love he has for each of you.
So have a Merry Christmas and wipe away that tear.
Remember I am spending Christmas with Jesus this year.

My little girl  / Bonita Housand (Mother)
For the past months I would pick up a news paper and see friends of yours completing there four years of  college and think about that day that both of us look forward for you to earn a nursing degree. Now all I can think about is who you would be today if you were here, I miss you so very much and think about the friend I have lost . I think about you and me planning that wedding we always talked about because in my heart  I know it would have been soon. People just don't know how bad my heart is broken. Nat I want you to know how much I love you. {Mom}
A poem that I wrote to natalie sometime ago  / Joseph Watts (great friends )
Hey babe,

I wanted to tell you how much you mean in my life.

The one
The first time I sorrow you
I knew
The first time we said I love you
I knew
The first date we went on
I knew
The first time I call you babe
I knew
My heart and soul belongs to you
And your happiness
Ever thing I do is for you
Ever breath I’ve taken is for you

Now it’s harder to breath
I have love you from the first time I sorrow you
remembers and pictures all I have left but their great one
You knew how much you meet to me and that will never go away
It is so hard some time to keep going in this life
I never wrote a poem so I hope this was good
somewhere inside of me i'll never let you go
Thought hard and good times

Watch Over my Baby  / Amy Purser (friend)

As you already know from looking down on us, I had a baby girl on June 27,2006.  I named her after a very special person, you.  Her name is Natalie Renae Purser.  I hope that she will be as kind and loving as you.  I wish you were here to watch her grow and so she could know you.  I know you are watching over her.  Sometimes she looks over my shoulder and smiles and I can't help but to believe that she is smiling at you. 
Please watch over my baby and keep her safe especially when I am away from her.  I love you and miss you!

To My One and Only Daughter  / BONITA HOUSAND (MOTHER)

Today, November 11,2005 you would be 21 years old.  I remember the day that you were born and how happy I was.  When I found out that I had a daughter I was so happy, you are what I wanted so badly.  That day was the happiest day of my life and you have always made me proud of you.  I was never disapointed in you. You have accomplished so much in your 20 years, more than I have in my 40 years. You were a bright and beautiful young lady and I know you still are.  There is not a day that goes by that I don't think of you. I miss you so much. You were not only my daughter but my best friend.  I love you so much and I will always have that love for you.  There are so many things I will miss. It hurts so bad not to hear and see your smiling face.  I wish I could have taken your place.  I would have done it in minute. You had your whole life in front of you. Everything was always planned out.  I will always cherish the memories we shared, like family vacations, our beach trips when you should have been in school and all the concerts and pagents.  There are so many wonderful memories.  I look foward to the day that we will be reunited as a family.
                              I love you so much and miss you greatly,
                                          Your mother,
                                       Bonita Housand

I love you!  / Adam Melton (Boyfriend)

I miss you terribly.  There is not a day that goes by where I do not think of you.  I miss the way you would look at me and roll your eyes.  I miss the way you would laugh at my corny jokes.  And I miss the smile you would give after we kissed.  In your last card to me, you stated that you hoped my intentions were the same as yours.  Well, they were.  I planned to spend the rest of my days making you happy.  Though we can no longer be together in this world, I promise I will do whatever it takes to get back to you.  I love you, Nat!  See you in my dreams!
for Pat and Bonita  / Amy (friend)

For Such A Little While

God gave you your daughter
For such a little while;
He put a bit of heaven
In the sunshine of her smile.

He took dust from
The brightest twinkling stars
And made her sparkling eyes;
And now, she's gone back home to God,
To play up in the skies.

And though she left so quickly
That your hearts are grieved and sad,
We know she lives with God.
And her small heart is glad.

And though your precious darling
Was just a rosebud small;
She'll bloom in all her beauty
On the other side of the wall.

I'm Free  / Amy Purser (Friend)

In Loving Memory of
Natalie Renee Housand

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 his call,
I turned my back and left it all.
I could not stay another day.
To laugh, to love, to work, to play.
Tasks left undone must stay that way,
I’ve found that peace at the close of the day.
If my parting has left a void,
Then fill it with remembered joy.
A friendship shared, a laugh, a kiss,
Ah yes, these things I too will miss.
Be not burdened with times of sorrow,
I wish you the sunshine of tomorrow.
My life’s been full, I savored much,
Good friends, good times, a loved one’s touch.
Perhaps my time seemed 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

for Adam & everyone whose heart still aches. . .  / Amy

 "I am still with you"

If it seems that I am far away on this empty and solemn day,

Just open your heart and know it’s true,

that I am still right here with you.

If during the day things are going wrong,

please don’t feel sad and alone.

Just open your heart and know it’s true,

that I am still right here with you.

When nighttime falls and the day is done.

If you are feeling alone and sleep won’t come,

Just open your heart and know it’s true,

that I am still right here with you.

Close your eyes, and feel the warm embrace.

Sleep peacefully in the wings of grace.

If sadness finds you in the morning light, if you feel alone,

don’t give up trying!

Hold this feather close and know it’s true,

that I am always here with you.

My sweet childhood Bestfriend  / Magan Cox Barnes (Childhood Bestfriends )
I was looking at some old pictures today and memories of you flooded my mind. S many questions of what could have been. I thought about where I am now and if you we're still here where you would be. I so miss the weekends we would spend together when we're in middle and high school. I never thought that I would have to live life without you. You were such an AWSOME friend and so full of life. I love and miss you! Close

It doesn't seem real.  / Mona Strickland (classmate)

I remember you being the all american girl.When we were in school together, I spent the night with you.It was so cool to stay at your house.We slept on a blow up mattress in the living room and watched Legends of the Fall.I always remembered that and the fact that you loved ladybugs and hated peanut butter.It is weird how things stick out.Remember we had college algebra together.That class wouldn't have been the same without you, just like this world is not the same without you.We didn't know each other that well, but I do miss you.

Missing You!  / Adam Melton (Boyfriend)

It's going on three years since you have been gone.  I think about you often.  I often wonder where I would be in my life if you were with me.  I still carry so much anger around knowing that you and I will never get the opportunity to live out our lives with each other.  Just know that I still love you very much.  You will always be a part of my heart.  I also look forward to the day I see you again.  I love you sweetheart!

Miss you terribly  / Dianne Cartrette (Aunt)

Natalie, I think of you every single day.  There is a space in my heart where you are constantly.  And I have to tell you, every time I hear that song by Kenny Chesney, I really break down.  You know the song, because you see me.  You make me smile a lot..when I see a very bright star, when I see the sun coming up early in the morning and so many other times:  again, you see me.  I try so hard to remember the little things that you and I talked about.  One of the most memorable is when you and I went to WalMart together in Whiteville and we had heart to heart talks about so many things and especially about you wanting to move out and get a place of your own.  I can see you and hear your laugh.  I miss you, Sweetie Pie.  I always felt like you and I were close.  I know that you did too.  We still are.  I will see you one day and that will be a day to rejoice.  Keep singing with the other angels .  I know you are so beautiful with your wings.  I love you so much.

Aunt Dianne

I was Googling my son Ryan's name and read about the crash that took your daughter from you far too soon. My son was killed by a drunk driver that was an illegal imigrant on 12-05-2005. My heart goes out to you and I wish you peace. I can say that I have an idea of what you are going through but don't know your exact pain. I know that it feels good when someone reaches out and  acknowledges my son and my loss. I hope that you know that you are not alone and that your loss is felt by many others. 
  I hope you find a sense of peace and a good nights sleep that gives you the rest you need. Close
