Memorial Pages by Christopher's Mommy

I have dedicated this part of Christopher's website to all of the angel moms and dads out there.

I have been trying my best to help other bereaved parents create Memorial pages for their Angels.

Our son Christopher passed away after developing post-transplant lymphomatic disease after having a successful piggyback
heart transplant. Needless to say, it has been a devastating time for us.
It is something that we will never "get over".

Christopher was only 7-1/2 years old when he left us. He was our first-born son, and he suffered from heart problems since shortly after birth. He was such a huge part of our lives.
So many hopes and dreams
of ours have been shattered. So much of our future was taken from us. Everything has changed.

I have kept wondering why God would leave me here and take
my precious little boy. The only answer is that I must have more to do.
One of these things is maybe to try to help other bereaved parents
in remembering their children who have gone too soon.

I create these pages free of charge, in honor of my son Christopher.
Since I do not yet have the talent for creating some of these lovely graphics myself, I rely on the generosity and talents of some other angel moms
who help me with that part of it. Also, Tina's mom, Linda, helps me tremendously with the music for these pages as well.
And of course, I truly believe that Christopher and the other angels
are helping me in this venture. With everyone's help,
I will do my best to make sure that
none of our angels is ever forgotten.

If you are interested, please e-mail me at and let me know what you are looking for to honor your angel,
and together we can build a special Memorial page for your angel.

The web pages that I have made for angels so far are too numerous
to list on here, but if you are interested in seeing some of
my angel pages, you can access them from this page --

Stepping Stones

Come...take my hand the road is long
We must travel by stepping stones...'re not alone...I'll go with you
I know the road well...I've been there
Don't fear the darkness...I'll be with you
We must take one step at a time
But remember...we may have to stop awhile
It is a long way to the other side
And there are many obstacles you must face

We have many stones to cross...some are bigger than others
Shock...denial...pain and anger to start
Then comes guilt...despair and loneliness
It's a hard road to travel but it must be done
It's the only way to reach the other side
Come...slip your hand in mine

What? Oh's very strong
I've held so many hands like yours see...I had to take someone's hand
In order to take the first step
Oops! You've stumbled...go ahead and cry
Don't be's ok...I understand
Let's wait here awhile and get your breath
When you're stronger we'll go step at a time
There's no need to hurry...we have time on our side's so nice to hear you laugh again
Yes..I agree...
The memories you shared with me are good
They will live in you for all of eternity
Look...we're halfway there now
I can see the other's so warm and filled with laugher and sunshine
Oh...have you noticed we're nearing the last stone
and you're standing alone...
And look...your've let go of mine
We've finally reached the other side...

But wait...look back...someone is standing there
They are alone and want to cross the stepping stones
I'd better go now...they need my help
What? Are you sure...
Why...yes go ahead...of course I'll wait
You know the've been there
Yes...I agree it's your friend
To help someone else cross the stepping stones

I have lost a life - not my own.
But it would have been easier
to have lost my own life
than to have lost
the life I loved more than my own.

These two very special gifts with so many of our Angels are from my friend Marie.

"An Award For Maria
The Angel Mommy of The Web"

Those we love remain with us
for love itself lives on.
Cherished memories never fade,
because one loved is gone.
Those we love can never be,
more than a thought apart,
for as long as there is a memory,
they live on in our heart.

Darling Christopher

Well I met you, oh quite a while ago when I signed your guestbook, then I asked your very sweet Mom if she would add your
smiling face to my ANGEL Lee's ANGEL PAGE, since then, day by day I have got to know you a little more, as everyday I am at
my ANGEL PAGE, but for a while now I have been working side by side with your Mom, Oh Christopher she sounds so sweet,
unfortunately I have never met her in person.

You see Christopher, where you live now, as you know it is called HEAVEN, and only ANGEL'S live there. But Moms, Dads, sisters and brothers,
all family members that are not ANGEL'S yet still live down hear. But it is mostly Moms that do special pages
for their ANGEL'S, they are called web sites, that is what your Mom does, but why she is so special is because she just doesn't do
your web site, she helps many people that can't do for themselves, her work is beautiful, but then you know that as
you are always with her, what I do is I do some writing for her, just like I am doing here, she will put this on your site.

Because you played non-stop with lego's and beavers your Mom even named her e-mail address after you, which I thought
was cute. If you see my ANGEL Lee, knowing him he is on his computer, writing poetry, sketching for his drawings,
watching the simpsons, or reading, ask him if you could use his computer, and send an e-mail to your Mom,
when you ask him, can you please ask him to e-mail me too, thank you.

It has been really nice talking with you, but I better go, other wise your Mom will have to make a whole new website
just for my writing. Talk to you again ANGEL Christopher.

Hi Maria
I've been wanting to make you a little gift for the longest time and finally got a chance to do that. Please except this gift as a way of saying thank you so much
for all you do in helping others. I honestly don't see how you do it all....
Thank you again for all you do. You truly are an "Earth Angel" and we all know how very proud Christopher must be of his mommy.
God Bless you Maria, your friend Patricia

A friend can hear a tear drop.
