Memorial website in the memory of your loved one

This memorial website was created in the memory of our loved one, Jeremy Yancey who was born in Oklahoma on January 18, 1980 and passed away on April 25, 2009 at the age of 29. We will remember him forever.

My family has learned the hard way that the justice system should be called the injustice system. A murderer walks free. I am so angry about what has happened, or should I say about what has NOT happened. We are left empty and lonely and our lives will never be the same. It just doesn't make any sense to me.

It's not getting any easier for me, in fact it's getting harder. The person responsible should have to pay for what he did.

I just think that this is wrong on so many levels. My grandchildren have lost their daddy and the murderer is out living his life like nothing ever happened. As far as Jeremy's family is concerned, there is NO justification for my son's life being taken from him.

We lost someone that was very precious to us. I lost my firstborn child, my children lost a brother, and Jeremy's children lost their father. Nothing can bring him back. I'm thankful to God that Jeremy gave his heart to the Lord only 6 days before he was murdered. We know beyond a shadow of a doubt that Jeremy is now walking with Jesus in heavenly places and that we will see him again!

We are trying to be strong for his children, but it is so hard. I don't want the anger and frustration we feel over the situation to be projected on to them. One day at a time, that is the best that we can do.

It has been an almost daily circumstance that I have to try and explain to Caleb why daddy is gone. It just breaks my heart all over again. Aleigha is just now starting to express any emotion at all about her daddy. Last week she came and asked me if she could sing to me two songs she had written. Both of the songs were to and about her daddy. It was so hard not to break down and start crying.


If You Could See Me Now 

Your prayers have all been answered,

I've finally arrived.

We're all enjoying Jesus

Just sitting at his feet.

The healing that was delayed,

Has now been realized.

If you could see me now,

I'm walking on streets of gold.

If you could see me now,

I'm standing tall and whole.

If you could see me now,

You'd know I've seen

God's face.

If you could see me now,

You'd know the pain's erased.

You wouldn't want me

to ever leave,

This most perfect place,

If you could see me now.


And God Said

I said,
“God, I hurt,”
And God said,
“I know.”

I said, “God,
I cry a lot.”
And God said,
“That is why I gave you tears.”

I said, “God,
I am so depressed.”
And God said,
“That is why I gave you sunshine.”

I said,
“God, life is so hard.”
And God said,
“That is why I gave you loved ones.”

I said,
“God, my Son died.”
And God said,
“So did mine.”

I said,
“God, it is such a loss.”
And God said,
“I saw my Son nailed to the cross.”

I said,
“God, but your son lives.”
And God said,
“So does yours.”

I said,
“God, where is he now.”
And God said,
“Mine is on my right and yours is in the Light.”

I said, “God, it hurts.”
And God said, “I know.”

I wrote the following poem for Jeremy when he was 16 years old.

Number One Son

By Alisa Yancey

At the time of your birth

You did become my number one son

Such a precious baby with a head full of hair

Soon you slept through the night with out a care

I watched as you grew

Nurtured you as best I could

But I feel I've let you down

And I had hoped I never would

I tried my best to give you

All the things you needed

But looking back I realize

I never really succeeded

I hope that you do realize

I did the best I could

Under the circumstances

And that I never would

Have intentionally caused

The hurtful glances

That you passed my way

More and more every day

I wanted you to grow tall and strong

And be proud of all you do

For I know all too well

Seldom do we get second chances

I only hope you realize

Just how much I love you

And regardless of the things you do

I will always be here for you

I know you have a good heart

For I have seen it when it surfaced

Just keep it in the light

For which it was purposed

I want you to succeed

In everything you do

And all your hopes and dreams

I hope they do come true


A Note from Heaven

If I could write from Heaven,

this is what I'd say,

Please don't miss me too much,

I'm with you throughout your day.

You may not see or hear me,

but if you're quiet and still,

You may just feel my presence:

because, in Heaven, there is free will.

Don't worry for the day,

it will come and go as planned,

Enjoy each moment you are given,

keep worry from your hand.

Keep sorrow to a minimum;

For if Heaven you could see,

You'd know I'm safe and happy,

I did not cease to be.

Moments in time are brief,

until we'll be together again,

as Eternity lasts forever,

our lives, they have no end.
