Memorial website in the memory of your loved one

This memorial website was created in the memory of our loved one, Rithesh Ramsaru who was born in Durban on the 23 October, 1978 and passed away on 26 March 2012 at the age of 33. We will love and remember him forever.    "Gone yet NOT forgotten, although we are apart, your spirit lives within US, forever in OUR hearts"

 



When I wake up in the morning I ask myself
How will I get through this day without you?
As I dress and prepare to start my day I wonder
How will I go on without you?
As the day slowly slips away I remember how you made me laugh
And I smile without you.
At the end of the day as I prepare to close my eyes I know in my heart
I could NOT have gotten through the day without YOU

 Goodbye is not forever. Goodbye is not the end.
It simply means I'll miss you until we meet again
.

 I have lived with you and loved you, and now you are gone. Gone where I cannot follow, until I have finished all of my days.”

"grief is a house where no on can protect you, where the younger sister
will grow older than the older one, where the doors, no longer let you in or out”

 One Year Memorial Ceremony

    "If we could have a lifetime wish
and one dream that could come true
We would pray to God with all our
hearts just to see and speak to you
A thousand words won’t bring you back
We know because we’ve tried
and neither will a million tears
We know because we’ve cried
You’ve left behind our broken hearts
and precious memories too
But we’ve never wanted memories
WE ONLY WANTED YOU"

Tears are the silent language of grief

 How I shall miss you
Now that you've gone
The nights will be lonely
The days will be long

My love and my thoughts
Will be with you each day
My spirit beside you
In heavens long day

Hold close to your soul
What I have in my heart
A love that's forever
Although we're apart

 

      I dropped a tear in the ocean. The day you find it is the day I will stop missing you." 

  

                                 

6 Months ago, on this sad day the one we loved was called away. God took him home, it was His will, but in our hearts he lives still.

   
Even though I'm told that it was your time.
I can't get that through my mind.
I wasn't ready to let you go.

It wasn't meant to be that way.
why did we go out that dreadful day.
It wasn't meant to be that way.

The scene of the crash plays
time and time again through my brain,
as I cry in agony over the pain.

I reach out and take you by the hand
and ask Tesh are you okay?
You answer I don't think so and slip away.

No I scream,
this can not be.
this can not be happening I cry,
I beg you to stay.
This can not be happening this way.

A careless driver in a hurry. 
looking forward to the future,
without a worry.
A careless driver in a hurry.

Suddenly in a flash,
the sound of metal scraping,
glass breaking.
It took a few seconds for your life to end.
It took a few seconds for a life time of pain and sorrow to begin. 

Tesh, will the tears ever dry?
I ask this as I wipe my eyes.
I'm told in time.
But I don't think so.
I wasn't ready to let you go..



"When a loved one becomes a memory, That memory becomes a treasure."

Where do people go to when they die?
Somewhere down below of in the sky?
"I can't be sure," Said HE, but it seems
They simply set up home inside our dreams."


There is always a face before me,
A voice I would love to hear,
A smile I will always remember,
Of a HUSBAND I loved so dear.
Deep in my heart lies a picture,
More precious than silver or gold,
It's a picture of my husband,
Whose memory will never grow old.

Right now I'm in a different place
And though we seem apart
I'm closer than I ever was
... I'm there inside your heart

I'm with you when you greet each day
And while the sun shines bright
I'm there to share the sunsets, too
... I'm with you every night

I'm with you when the times are good
To share a laugh or two,
And if a tear should start to fall
... I'll still be there for you

And when that day arrives
That we no longer are apart,
I'll smile and hold you close to me
... Forever in my heart



Got a picture of you I carry in my heart,
Close my eyes to see it when the world gets dark,
Got a memory of you I carry in my soul,
I wrap it close around me when the nights get cold,
If you ask me how I'm doing I'd say just fine,
But the truth is, if you could read my mind,
Not a day goes by, that I don't think of you,
After this time, you're still with me it's true,
Somehow you remain, locked so deep inside,
Not a day goes by...

Everyday in some small way
Memories of you come our way.
Though absent, you are always near
Still missed, loved and always dear

We miss you in so many ways,
We miss the things you used to say,
And when old times we do recall,
It’s then we miss you most of all.


" 3 months without you is like HELL on EARTH"

3 Months ago, on this sad day the one we loved was called away. God took him home, it was His will, but in our hearts he lives still.


"I dropped a tear in the ocean. The day you find it is the day I will stop missing you."

Sitting sadly on my bed
Listening to the wild winds blow,
Crying bitterly behind my hair
Trying not to let it show.

Knowing that you won't be back
You left without good-bye's,
Never to mend my broken heart
Letting loose my cries.

Everyday I waited
And everyday I prayed,
Hoping God would leave you here
At least just one more day.


No farewell words were spoken,
No time to say goodbye,
You were gone before we knew it,
And only God can tell us why.


A silent thought, a secret tear,
Keeps your memory ever dear,
God took you home, it was his will,
But in our hearts, you live still.

The moment that you died
my heart was torn in two,
one side filled with heartache,
the other died with you.
I often lie awake at night,
when the world is fast asleep,
and take a walk down memory lane,
with tears upon my cheeks.
Remembering you is easy,
I do it everyday,
but missing you is heartache
that never goes away.
I hold you tightly within my heart
and there you will remain.




It's not fair, that on father's day, I will only be able to remember mine, while everyone else is making memories with theirs....

  

TO MY DADDY: RITHESH

Happy Fathers Day
Happy Fathers day means more
than have a happy day
It means i love you first of all
Then thanks for all you do
It means you mean a lot to me
and that I honor you.
MISS YOU TOOOO MUCH

HAPPY FATHER'S DAY

If I could write a story
It would be the greatest ever told
Of a kind and loving father
Who had a heart of gold

If I could write a million pages
But still be unable to say, just how
Much I love and miss him
Every single day

I will remember all he taught me
I'm hurt and sad but he will still
 send me down the answers
And he'll always be MY DAD

I thought of you with love today
but that is nothing new.
I thought about you yesterday
and days before that too.

I think of you in silence
I often speak your name
All I have are memories
and your picture in a frame.

Your memory is my keepsake
with which I'll never part
God has you in His keeping
I have you in my heart. 

 

"If we could have a lifetime wish
and one dream that could come true
We would pray to God with all our
hearts just to see and speak to you
A thousand words won’t bring you back
We know because we’ve tried
and neither will a million tears
We know because we’ve cried
You’ve left behind our broken hearts
and precious memories too
But we’ve never wanted memories
WE ONLY WANTED YOU"



We miss you now, our hearts are sore,
As time goes by we miss you more,
Your loving smile, your gentle face,
No one can fill your vacant place.

Little did we know that night
God was going to call your name.
In life we loved you dearly,
in death we do the same.
It broke our hearts to lose you,
but 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 by 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.
