It has been a year since she left us, but she will always be within our hearts, she is now finally at peace, but we are now stuck with the troubles of our father who does not realize she was sick and God did not want her to suffer any more, so he took her to a better place of peace and tranquility, but our dear father can not accept that it was her time, so now he makes my siters life a living hell. But we know in our hearts she is not sick any more, for God has taken her to visit with her family. You will always be in our hearts forever Mar. Love Carol, Danny, Lori and Tommy. Also Tammy, Bobby, Kelly and Ashley. Your family.

Your Oldest Daughter


If tears could build a stairway,
and memories were a lane,
I could walk right up to heaven
to bring you home 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 in sadness
and secret tears still flow,
what it meant to lose you,
no one will ever know.

CrossMichael Daniel
By Cathy Daniel, Glendale, NY USA
Daddy, If you came back from Heaven I wouldn't know what to say. I wouldn't know what to do -- if you came back from Heaven and I could look at you. Would I fumble for the words? Would I be a little shy? Would I bust right out with laughter, or break right down and cry? Oh, if you came back from Heaven, would it be like it was then? Could we just pick up where we left off and try it all again? Oh, if you came back from heaven, it would freeze me in my tracks. And, I hope God knows, if he let you go, I'd never send you back.

CrossBailey Nicole Davis
By The Davis Family, Edgefield, SC USA
My daughter, Bailey Nicole Davis, was born February 13, 1997. Three days later, I orded the machines perfoming all her bodily functions disconnected and her mother and I held her as we cried. She faded fast, leaving this painful world in less than one minute, but leaving for one where she will be fully healed, there will be no pain, and she will be rocked to sleep by Jesus Himself. Her passing left us with gut wrenching pain, and Jesus is still trying to put us back together. Bailey was born nearly three months early and weighed in at 10 oz. Was the smallest live birth ever recorded in the state of Georgia. She pushed the boundaries of neinatal medicine, and everything possibile was done for her. She was taking morphine for her pain, and her skin was begining to split open from the inside out. My wife and I felt we needed to let her go. It was the hardest decision we have ever made, and doubts haunt us to this day. At her service we sang Jesus loves the little children, and she was laid to rest in the church cemetery where we were were married and where her brother had been dedicated to the Lord. Baileys headstone reads the littlest angel.

FlowersMargaret A. Davis
By Wendy Fields, Tempe, AZ USA
I wrote this poem for my mom in 1993 for Mother's Day. She died on March 27,1997 at age 52. While going through her belongings, I came across this poem, tucked away in her night stand drawer. I love her more than anything, and my heart now has a hole that can never be filled. I love you so much mommy, and I miss you more than words can say.

      ~ On this special day, my spirits did lift, and
I tried to find a wonderful gift

      ~ To send to you, to show that I care,
I tried every store, every shop, everywhere

      ~I saw gold that shines, and flowers that bloom,
I tested the scents of sweet perfume

      ~I saw cards and paper, and ribbons of blue,
which one of these gifts should I buy for you?

      ~ I bought none of these things, I must confess
for all of these things you already possess

      ~ So on this Mother's Day, so far from home,
I decided to write for you this special poem

      ~ Though there's no pretty paper or ribbons of blue,
It's wrapped in the love I'm sending to you

      ~ The love in your eyes outshines any gold,
your heart is a flower that never grows old

      ~ Your patience and kindness are the ribbons that
bind mother to daughter - your heart to mine


Your Baby,

Mom, You left us in January of 1998. Alzheimer's Disease is an awful way to go especially for someone like you, who so enjoyed doing for your family. While Dad was off in the Navy in the Pacific, you cared for 2 babies. You spent 50+ years married to an verbally abusive husband, but never a complaint. You were that certain special person to your kids and grandchildren. We've always adored you Mom!

"So many years have passed since the day he donned a badge. He chose a life of service to share the love he had. Rudy chose to protect those who did not know him. Courage cleared the path allowing him to serve them. Unsuspecting people prayed at night for God's protection. Never knowing who followed his direction. He put on the 'grays' securing his vest tight. Stepping into forever fighting God's fight. No one knew when this heroes life would end. Except for God whose people he died to defend. by Dodie Canova"

It is said that life has no guarantee...
One minute you were here with me...
Missing you until we meet again has left a yearning the
"Why of it all has left my Heart Burning"
The years have come and gone...
New generations have been born
When I think of the new children and the many new miles...
My sadness and regrets are they will never know your
Tendrness and Smiles...
Although the Lord didn't hesitate
When giving you a place...
One the days I am not being selfish
I know you are saving us a space...
We could not have asked for a better advocate with the Lord above...
For you are our Gardian Angel...

Dad, God called you home March 22, 2000. It's already seem like a lifetime since you left us. Daddy I miss you so much. The love we had between a father and daughter noone can ever take from us. Dad I will always love you.

The Day God Called You Home

God looked around His garden
And He found an empty place.
He then looked down
Upon this earth
And saw your tired face.
He put His arms around you
And lifted you to rest.
God's garden must be beautiful
He always takes the best.
He knew that you were suffering
He knew you were in pain.
He knew that you would never
Get well on this earth again.
He saw that the road
Getting rough, and the hills
Are hard to climb.
So He closed your weary eyelids,
and whispered, "Peace be thine."
It broke our hearts to lose you
But you didn't go alone.
For part of us went with you
The day God called you home.

Remembrance is a golden chain
Death tries to break, but all in vain.
To have, to love, and then to part
Is the greatest sorrow of one's heart.

But some they wipe out never.
Like memories of those happy times
When we were all together.
