This memorial website was created to remember our dearest Christopher Michael Barrios Jr. who was born in Brunswick Georgia on January 2, 2001 and passed away on March 8, 2007 at the age of 6. You will live forever in our memories and hearts.
On March 8, 2007 our whole world came to a stop. That was the day my boyfriends son (Christopher Barrios Jr.) was taken from our neighborhood. Little did we know that morning when we woke up, that our lives would be changed forever. We prayed everyday for Christopher safe return home to us while law enforcement and many volunteers from all over searched for him day in and day out. Exactly a week later, on March 15th. Every parents worst fears became our reality. The cheif of police came to our house and told us that they had found Christopher but he was no longer with us. He was found only a few miles from where we live in a trash bag on the side of the road.
There is 3 people being charged with capital murder for Christopher's death. A man named George Edenfield - a register child molester, his mother (Peggy Edenfield) and his father (David Edenfield)

We are connected, Christopher and I,
By an invisible cord not seen by the eye.
It's not like the cord that connects us at birth,
This cord can't be seen by any on Earth.
This cord does its work right from the start,
It binds us together attached to my heart.
I know that its there, thought no one can see,
The invisible cord from Christopher to me.
The strength of this cord is hard to describe,
It can't be destroyed, it can't be denied.
Its stronger than any cord man could create,
It withstands any test, can hold any weight.
Though you are gone and you're not here with me,
The cord is still there but no one can see.
It pulls at my heart, I am bruised, I am sore,
But this cord is my lifeline as never before.
I'm thankful that God connects us this way,
A parent (Guardian) and child, death can't take away.
My Little Boy
Your little boy cries too much
My little boy makes no sound
Your little boy is warm to touch
Mine lies cold in the ground
Your little boy woke up today
My Angel never will
Your little boy can laugh and play
My little boy lies still
Your little boy makes you so proud
But just as proud as I
Cause though your boy will learn to walk
My little boy can FLY!
If love could undo a wrong,
You'd be home where you belong.
The choices that were made,
Caused you to rest where you were laid.
You were young and didn't know,
We'd lose you and miss you so.
Too young to really understand,
So God reached out His mighty hand.
Now you hear the Angels sing,
And you don't want for anything.
You're finally safe from earthly harms,
Wrapped up in God's loving arms.
Although i miss you everyday,
I know heavens where you'll stay.
But someday Christopher, we'll meet again,
When I walk through the gate to heaven!!
I thought of you with love today
But that is nothing new,
I thought about you yesterday
And the 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
I'll never part
God has you in His keeping
I have you in my HEART
~Made by Valerie Gill~
That the stars above
Are really the souls
Of you loved ones
Keeping watch over
You all through

My Dad is a Survivor
My dad is a survivor too
Which is no surprise to me.
He's always been like a lighthouse
That helps you cross a stormy sea.
But, I walk with my dad each day
To lift him when he's down.
I wipe the tears he hedes from others;
He cries when no one's around.
I watch him sit up late at night
With my picture in his hand.
He cries as he tries to grieve alone,
And wishes he could understand.
My dad is like a tower of strength.
He's the greatest of the all!
But, there are times when he needs to cry...
Please be there when he falls.
Hold his hand or pat his shoulder...
And tell him it's okay.
Be his strength when he's sad,
Help him mourn in his own way.
Now, as I watch over my precious dad
From the Heavens up above...
I'm so proud tht he's a survivor...
And, I can still feel his love.

....to be absent from the body, is to be present with the Lord.
WHISPERS FROM HEAVEN TO MY DADDY,
THE MAN WHO HAS MY WHOLE HEART.
I had to leave so quickly
No time to say goodbye
I know your heart is breaking
And you just wonder why
You couldn't be there to help me
But please don't be sad
It's not your fault
And I really love you dad!
Besides, an Angel came in your place that day
And gently took me by my hand
Then with a smile she said,
"Come with me little man"
She led me up to Heaven
Where the lights were shining bright
Where there are no tears, pain or suffering
And there's no fear of the night
I really didn't die, you know
So stay close to God and pray
I just went to live with Jesus
And we'll be together again one day
Good Night, God Bless, I Love You!
Wings of An Angel
From our hearts to yours filled with pain. The
unimaginable anger, in life it may linger, but never
let it hinder the time you had together.
The binds and ties that will never be broken as God
held him tight and told the angels to take flight to
prepare the night for a glorious site.
On the wings of angels and under the bosom of
God, Christopher flies to heavenly skies laughing,
smiling and enjoying the ride with no remebrance
of how he died. Safely in heaven is where he
abides, with wings and a hallo waiting his arrival.
His first task is to let you know he will always be
with you. A star in the skies to always remind you
he will be there when it is time for your arrival.
If tears could build a stairway
If tears could build a stairway,
And memories a lane,
I would walk right up to heaven
And bring you back again.
No farewell words were spoken,
No time to say "goodbye"
You were gone before I knew it,
And only God knows why.
My heart still aches with sadness,
And secret tears still flow,
What it meant to love you-
No one will ever know.
But now I know you want me
To morn for you no more;
To remember all the happy times,
Life still has much more in store.
Since you will never be forgotten,
I pledge to you today-
A hollowed place in our hearts,
Is where you will always stay.
Do not stand by my grave and weep.
I am not there, I do no sleep.
I am a thousand winds that blow,
I am the diamond glints upon the snow.
I am the sunlight on ripened grain and
I am the gentle autumn rain.
When you awaken in the morning's hush,
I am that swift uplifting rush,
Of quiet birds in circled flight.
I am the soft star that shines at night.
Do not stand by my grave and cry,
I am not there, I did not die.
Releasing the doves for Christopher......
A child that loses a parent is an orphan,
A man who loses his wife is a widower,
A woman who loses her husband is a widow,
There is no name for a parent that loses a child,
For there is no word to describe the PAIN!!!!!!!
