I want to thank my sister, Becky, for sponsoring Andrya's site. So many times you have been there for us. Love you so much. I also want to thank my sister-in-law, Lisa for all the support she has showed me. You don't know how much I appreciate it.
I want to thank everyone that leaves flowers and notes for Andrya and Lindsey. It warms my heart each time I read them. Also thanks to all of you that have added the girls to your Virtual Cemeteries. It is nice to know that they are being remembered as well by many other people also. Thanks so much.
ODE TO MY CHILD
I miss you dear and I always will as long as my heart does beat,
I long to see that familiar smile, those eyes twinkle oh so sweet!
It only seems like yesterday that you were here by my side,
But the days and months come so very slow, my tears are never dried.
If I'd known you were leaving us, what would I have liked to say?
What could we have done, where could we have gone before that fateful day?
There are so many things that seem left undone, so much that I have to bear,
I wish that you could come home for a day, to hug you on earth right here.
My child you know how I miss you so, how much my heart does ache,
They say God gives us just so much pain, enough that we can take.
Did God really know when He took you home my life went with you too?
I'm just a shell of my former self, life isn't the same without you.
God promises I'll see you again, my faith is all I have left.
I love you my child, my sweet precious child, but I'm feeling so low and bereft.
Please send me a sign that you're happy up there, a sign that you want to be free,
Then maybe, just maybe I can carry on, and wait until you come call me!
