    1 My life hasn’t been the same since he Decide to take my son on precious life
    1 He had a mother and a family that looked him you didn’t have to take my son life
    1 It will never be the same without Cedrick never
    2 Rest in heaven my son
    1 I had three children Cedrick was the oldest
    1 Cedrick always know how to make people’s laugh 😂
    1 He was smart intelligent respectful and a handsome young man
    1 And I’m gonna miss him so much I wish that I could go back in time
    1 just to have my son here with me I would’ve gave my life for his
    1 Because I just don’t know how to keep going on without my son 😭😭
    1 I wake up every morning thinking he gonna come in my room in say good morning Ma
    1 I love you Ma but I will never hear his voice again and that kills me
    1 When my son died a part of me died with him
    1 Now I know how it feels to lose a child In that’s something that I would never get over
    1 I wish I could see you one more time
    1 Come walking through the door but I know that isn’t possible
    1 I will never hear your voice no more I know you can feel my tears and you don’t want me to cry
    1 Yet my heart is broken because I can’t understand why someone

    1 Today is Easter without my son it hurts so bad I wish he was here with us
    1 To lose someone so special is really hard to bear
    1 It hardly seems believable that you’re no longer here
    1 You left us far too early before your time it seems
    1 And now you’ll never have a chance to fulfill all those dreams
    1 However hard it is though we’ll take comfort in the thoughts
    1 Of all the memories we have and the happiness you brought
    1 But ours life’s won’t be the same until the day
    1 When we can see your smiling face again
    1 I love you so much son happy Easter in heaven
