Galen wanted to walk to school after he was being
bullied by other kids at
his bus stop. I agreed to let him and now he is in
Galen was a joy to raise and was a wonderful son. he
loved music and playing
the violin. he was loved by so many people and he
loved helping others .
his dad Was teaching him how to weld and I have to
say he caught on very well.
I remember the morning when Galen left for school
and i told him to go
straight to school and don't play around.
Well later on that morning I had to get his younger
brother ready for school
and i was watching the news , when I saw that a
child had been killed on the
interstate and My heart just dropped . I thought to
myself oh my god could it
have been him.,
I told a friend of mine that I had that bad feeling
and she said Jackie
don't think like that and I told her you just don't
understand, So I called the
school and they said they would call me back and
noone ever did so I was going
to call again and We heard a knock at the door and
when I looked out the back
window towards my house I saw the police car and
then my husbands car so I knew
that it was him.
Galen was on his way to heaven and our heart was
breaking , our son was gone
and nothing we could say would ever bring him back.
everyone Galen met loved him so very much he was so
very smart and he loved
doing flips outside on an old mattress in the back
yard and i can remember it
scared me to death because it looked like he was
going to get hurt but He was
good at everything he did and Loved it. we used to
walk to the park with him
and we would build the biggest leaf pile we could
and he would run and jump in
it and would have a blast.
i would like to thank those of his friends who loved
galen and stuck by him
no matter what.
Kay kay I want to thank you for the memorial page
you had done in the year
book after galen was killed .
galen also had many hobbies like skatbording and
swimming and fishing and
shooting his pelet gun at cans in the river, he was a dead eye shot.
Galen will be missed so very much by friends and most of all his family
