The image above and the tag with the yellow roses down below are beautiful gifts for Jenny
from my dear friend Pammi. Thank you so much!

Jenny tragically lost her battle with Lyme Disease,
"the disease of the innocent," at the age of 21.
The song playing on here is from Jenny's favorite movie, Ice Castles.

Just like a beautiful long stemmed rose,
Her precious memory grows and grows.
Touching the hearts of all of those she loved,
And like the fragrance of that same rose,
Her love so sweet still flows and flows,
Filling our lives with a warmth,
that shows she's there,
So like a forever-blooming rose,
The beauty she shared eternally glows,
For deep in our hearts,
Each of us knows....
She lives!!

A Fallen Limb

A limb has fallen from the family tree.
I keep hearing a voice that says,
"Grieve not for me."

Remember the best times, the laughter, the songs
The good of my life I lived while I was strong.

Continue my heritage. I'm counting on you.
Keep on smiling and surely,
The sun will shine through.

My mind is at ease, my soul is at rest,
Remembering all... how I was truly blessed.

Continue traditions, no matter how small,
Go on with your life,
Don't just stare at the wall.

I miss you all dearly, so keep up your chin,
Until the day comes that we're together again.

Thank you so much, Barb for this absolutely stunning gift for Jenny!!!

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.

A big thank you to Rosemary for these wonderful graphics and for adding Jenny's name so beautifully to this background!

Our Christmas Angels

Remember Me

Remember me whenever you see a sunrise,
Remember me whenever you see a star,
Remember me whenever you see a rainbow
Or woods in autumn colors from afar.

Remember me whenever you see the roses
Or seagulls sailing high in a sky of blue.
Remember me whenever you see waves
Shining in the sun.
And remember, I'll be remembering you!

Remember me whenever you see a teardrop,
Or meadows still wet with the morning dew.
Remember me whenever you feel love
Growing in your heart.
And remember, I'll be remembering you!
~ song by Deanna Edwards

Muchas gracias yet again to Rosemary for sending this beautiful verse
for Jenny's page.

Missing an Angel

Life goes on, but I miss you still-
& I think of you each day.
There's nothing that I wouldn't do
just to have you here to stay.

The essence of you lingers,
like the many heartfelt smiles...
The things I most remember
will be with me all the while.

You were here for just a moment,
but our lives were so entwined...
my soul was traveling with you,
as you left this world behind.
I'll guard your precious memory
inside my heart you'll stay…
for a moment I had everything;
I had you, along life's way.

If Tomorrow Never Comes

If I knew it would be the last time that I'd see you
fall asleep,
I would tuck you in more tightly and pray the Lord,
your soul to keep.

If I knew it would be the last time that I'd see you walk
out the door,
I would give you a hug and a kiss and call you back
for one more.

If I knew it would be the last time I'd hear your voice
lifted up in praise,
I would video tape each action and word,
so I could play them back day after day.

If I knew it would be the last time, I could spare
an extra minute or two to stop and say
"I love you," instead of assuming, you would KNOW I do.

If I knew it would be the last time I would be there
to share your day,
well I'm sure you'll have so many more, so I can let
just this one slip away.
For surely there's always tomorrow to make up for an oversight,
and we always get a second chance to
make everything right.

There will always be another day to say
our "I love you's,"
And certainly another chance to say our
"Anything I can do's?"

But just in case I might be wrong,
and today is all I get,
I'd like to say how much I love you and I hope
we never forget,
Tomorrow is not promised to anyone, young or old alike,
And today may be the last chance you get to
hold your loved one tight.

So if you're waiting for tomorrow, why not do it today?
For if tomorrow never comes, you'll surely regret the day,
That you didn't take that extra time for a smile,
a hug, or a kiss,
and you were too busy to grant someone, what turned out
to be their one last wish.

So hold your loved ones close today,
whisper in their ear,
Tell them how much you love them and that you'll always
hold them dear.
Take time to say "I'm sorry," "please forgive me,"
"thank you" or "it's okay."

And if tomorrow never comes, you'll have
no regrets about today.

Dear Susan
This is one of many poems that my ANGEL Lee wrote, it is very special to me.
Jenny is a very special ANGEL to you, so I would love to share it with you.


Softness of the skin
Sweetness in the smell
Nectar of the fruit
Tender in the heart
Dancing in the eyes
Uplifting in the smile
Tickle of the touch
Joining in the love

Truth in the speech
Love in the laughter
Primal in the scream
Soft in the whisper
Quick in the mind
Fair in the sentence
Brave in the confrontation
Joining in the love

Graceful in the sleep
Careful in the search
Deep in the sorrow
Strength in the sickness
Giving of thy self
Rich in the health
Kind in the giving
Joining in the love

some of the most beautiful graphics I've ever seen on a site."

"As you live with sorrow, I would like to present you with my Heaven's Gate Award,
