Memorial website in the memory of your loved one
This memorial website was created in the memory of my son, Zackary David Twardowski who was born into heaven on October 18th, 2006.  It is also in memory of my brother Neil Richard Brundage, who was called home to be with the Lord on August 26th, 2010. We will remember them forever.
"And this is the Father's will which hath sent me, that of all which He hath given me I should lose nothing, but should raise it up again at the last day."
JOHN 6:39
To the Memory-Of Community: Thank you for your continued prayers and support. You are earthly angels... with a broken wing. The beauty of imperfection takes my breath away.
"Before I made you in your mother's womb, I chose you.
Before you were born, I set you apart for a special work."
                            Jeremiah 1:4-5


The truest words of all: I will not forget you.
You are in my waking thoughts,
my sweetest memories, my dearest dreams.
I will not forget you.
You have touched my soul, opened my eyes,
changed my very experience of the universe.
I will not forget you.
I see you in the flowers, the sunset,
the sweep of the horizon
and all things that stretch to infinity.
I will not forget you.
I have carved you on the palm of my hand.
I carry you with me forever.
If You are looking down, Brother
Listen to me please,
Just to know you might be
Brings a little ease
Everytime I come here
To spend some time with you,
I promise that I won' t get upset
But every time I do.
I know that you won't like
To see me stand and cry,
I want you to be proud of me
But however hard I try
I think about the old days,
And the good times that we had
And knowing there will be no more of them,
Always makes me sad.

"For my thoughts are not your thoughts, neither are your ways my ways, declares the Lord.  As the heavens are higher than the earth, so are my ways higher than your ways and my thoughts than your thoughts."
Isaiah 55; 8,9


Keeping your memory alive forever...



Please light a candle for our baby...


A candle to remember, may it burn ever so bright
As we look to the heavens on this very night.
Beyond the stars, our dear Zackary soars
Embraced by his Savior on heaven's shores.
As the angels protect him and sing his sweet name
We honor his life with the glow of this flame.
So we light this candle for our baby tonight
As a symbol of our love and his eternal life.




Even angels cry.









      




"David noticed that his servants were whispering among themselves and he realized the child was dead.  "Is the child dead?" he asked.  "Yes," they replied, "he is dead."
Then David got up from the ground.  After he had washed, put on lotions and changed his clothes, he went into the house of the Lord and worshiped."
                                                                                             2 Samuel 12:19-20A
                                                        














"The 'why' of so many things
Is sometimes known only to the heart of God.
But He has promised us...
that at all times,
in all places,
and in all circumstances,
nothing can separate us from His love.
                               Author Unknown

In my arms for the first and the last time.



Zackary was baptized by Pastor Mark Mutton and Chaplain Carl Coloney on the 18th day of October, 2006. We are forever grateful for their service.
There is one Lord, one faith, one baptism, One God and Father of all. 
Ephesians 4:5-6









THE BROKEN CHAIN

We little knew that morning that God was going to all 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.

--Author Unknown



A Place Where Children Are What kind of place would heaven be with all its streets of gold, if all the souls, that dwell up there like yours and mine, were old? How strange would heaven's music sound when harps begin to ring, if children were not gathered 'round to help the angels sing. The children that God sends to us are only just a loan, He knows we need their sunshine to make the house a home. We need the inspiration of a baby's blessed smile. He doesn't say they've come to stay, just lends them for a while. Sometimes it takes them years to do the work for which they come. Sometimes in just a month or two our Father calls them home. I like to think some souls up there bear not one sinful scar. I love to think of heaven as a place where children are.



For Zackary With Love From Big Brother, Jacob



Zackary's baby brother, Jayden Daniel


"For this child I prayed, and the Lord has granted me my petition which I asked of Him."1 Samuel 1:27

A FATHER'S GRIEF
It must be very difficult
To be a man in grief
Since "Men don't cry" and "Men are strong"
No tears can bring relief

It must be very difficult
To stand up to the test
And field calls and visitors
So that she can get some rest

They always ask if she's alright
And what shes going through
But seldom take his hand and ask
"My friend, how are you?"

He hears her cry in the night
And thinks his heart will break
He dries her tears and comforts her
But "Stays strong" for her sake

It must be very difficult
To start each day anew
And try to be so very brave
Because he lost his baby too









Zackary's big brother, Jacob and Uncle Neil.

His legacy
10/24/06  
How can we describe the pain of longing? It's not an illness and yet it consumes us and exhausts us, overwhelmingly both body and soul.


How can mere words describe the emptiness inside, while outside one wears a mask of acceptance? Oh fragile mask that falls away at the sound of his name...

                       ≈Zackary≈

       Written By Hattie Rist (Zackary's Great Grandma)





until tonight
my heart was just half full
i'd never known the fruit which fed the soul
but now i see what may put to rest my longing
for i have seen, the face of love
the grace of god, the face of love
in silence i feared my heart
would remain words unheard
inside a separateness of skin
but now i know that the skin just veils the soul
for i have seen, the face of love
the grace of god, the face of love
so take my hand and knowing
with it i also give my heart
wanting never to be separate again
let eternity begin
if you were flame
i'd allow myself to be consumed completely
were you wind i would wish you pass through me
but now i know that the skin just veils the soul
for i have seen, the face of love
the grace of god, the face of love

Zackary, your big brother loves you dearly.
Rainbow of Hope  
 
On October 14th at 4:30 in the afternoon, my family and I were on the way to our church service when in the sky we saw a beautiful full rainbow. After Zackary's death 4 days later, it became clear to me that God had given us that rainbow to remind us that even in our darkest hours...there is hope in Him.





*Zackary's star in the heavens*

Matthew 5:4  
"Blessed are those that mourn for they shall be comforted."


Zackary...too perfect for this world.  
A part of me died with you on that rainy day.  I will never be complete until we are once again together.  In my heart, my thoughts and my prayers you will always be.  Thank you, dear child for touching my heart with your short but precious life.  I live with the hope and faith that someday I will hold you in my arms and look into your eyes.  My baby, my love, my sleeping angel...




Born still...but STILL born



Now I lay me down to sleep
I pray the Lord my soul to keep
If I shall die before I wake
I pray the Lord my soul to take
God Bless the angel babies



Please light a candle for our angel babies here:
