*~*~*~*~*~*~*Chase Jackson~*~*~*~*~*~*~*
*~*~February 27, 1983-September 2, 1999~*~*
*~*~*~*~*~*~Varsity Football #26~*~*~*~*~*~*
*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~RIP~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*
You loved playing football
You had tons and tons of friends
We all loved you dearly
And didn't want your life to end

You will be missed by all who knew you
We all loved you so
We will miss you dearly
We didn't want to see you go

You had very few enemies
But there were those who didn't care
It was those people who ruined your life
Who would have thought they'd even dare!?!

You were the sweetest guy I'd known
Always brigtening up people's days
You had an impact on everyones life
In so many ways

It broke our hearts to lose you
But you didn't go alone
When you left your place on earth
We knew God was taking you home!


This is in memory of ~Chase Richard Jackson~ of Yakima Wa. We will miss him very much. He's going to missed by everyone who knew him. I would just like to say sorry to all his friends and family for losing a GREAT friend and wonderful son. But he will always be there in our hearts. Never let that go. Keep his memory alive. Chase, I Love and Miss You!!!

This is a lovely tribute to a friend. I am unsure if you are looking for a critique or just the feeling of this poem?

Hi...Well, I just wanted people to know how I felt about Chase and how much I miss him. But I like getting comments on the poem, cause it's the first really good poem that I wrote. Thanks.

BraTt...Lovely poem and great tribute. I feel your pain, and loss. I myself have lost many friends. Five to be exact. Two best friends, a boyfriend, and another very close friend, who was also my first crush. I understad how hard it is. If you ever want to chat, E-mail me.

I found this especially touching, BraTt, as we lost a high school football player here in my home town recently. Indeed, an excellent tribute.
