The Manchester Enterprise: Obituaries

In Memory of Eula Howard

In Memory of Carl “Dustin” Davidson

Sometimes I still hear the sound of your voice. 
I wish you were still here with us, but you had no choice.
I know an Angel held you as your body said goodbye.
But that doesn’t stop our hearts from breaking…. “We miss you and we cry.”
No one can believe that you are really gone,
Our hearts are broken and our spirits moan.
“He was too young”, I’ve heard people say,
“Why did he have to die this way?”
I try not to he angry, I kneel and pray, asking God to be with us, as we face each day.  I always try to give Danielle an extra kiss, to make up for the big brother, she will always miss. 
I understand everyone’s emptiness and their sorrow too,
Because, “My precious son…. We all miss you.”
I know you are happy in Heaven above,
Surrounded by the Angels and all their love.
But today on earth, our hearts still grieve,
Because you are no longer to talk with us.
I will look toward Heaven, for I know I will see a star that will suddenly glow big and bright,
It will be our son smiling…. And watching over us

In Loving Memory of Dustin Davidson who went to heaven on September 21, 2011

Many, many thanks go to the doctors and the wonderful nursing staff of St. Joseph London Hospital who worked so diligently with her and saw to never letting her be in pain.

The friends, neighbors, & relatives who sat with us in the hospital and at home gave us so much comfort. We are very grateful to those who helped with the food, flowers, tables, chairs, the many cards you sent, and the grave. Reverend Wayne House for the service and Mr. Tony Bruner for his beautiful songs. Thanks to her nephews & great nephews for being pall bearers. Mary Nicholson, as when Daddy passed, you were there, your support & love will never be forgotten. Romingers, your kindness will always be remembered.

The generous deeds, the many acts of kindness and helpful support given to us, gave us the courage during a very difficult time to adequately pardon those last services for her. We truly appreciate the thoughtfulness of all.
