GOLIGHTLY -- In Loving Memory of Jerran Stewart Golightly March 14, 1981 - February 23, 2002. In your lifetime, you have given us far more gifts than we can count, Yet the ones we remember most are the ones you gave us from within, often with out realizing it. When you were a child, you gave us the gift of allowing us to see the world through your eyes and finding the beauty we had overlooked before. The many memories we've made, the love you have given, and the love we have for you are lifetime gifts. We want to thank you for all you have given us and let you know that one of the greatest gifts of all is the Joy that has been in our hearts since the first moment we held you in our arms. Though we can no longer hold you in our arms, we will carry you in our hearts every day of our lives. You are the music in our hearts. We Love you and Miss you dearly. Mom, Dad, Daniel, your loving family and friends.
