In Loving Memory of
Laura Ann Kimble
November 5, 1968 ~ October 19, 2002

This mother's heart
Has known much pain and sorrow
Just in knowing you will not be with me tomorrow
God's Word tells me that on one sweet day all this will end
And in the brilliance of His Face
My heart will mend
But for now my sweet and precious child
Just wait for me around the bend
Where troubles are no more
And there I'll have you back again
When I reach that distant shore

Happy Birthday to My Angel Laura

The Lily of Heaven


Born 49 Years Ago Today

Sunrise.....November 5, 1968

Donít grieve for me, for now Iím free;
I took His hand when I heard him call;
I turned my back and left it all.
If my parting has left a void;
Then fill it with remembered joy.
My lifeís been full, I savored much;
Good friends, good times, a loved oneís touch.
A friendship shared, a laugh, a kiss;
Ah yes, these things, I too, will miss.
Perhaps my time seemed all too brief;
Donít lengthen it now with undue grief.
Lift up your hearts and share with me;
God wanted me now, He set me free.

Sunset....October 19, 2002

Parable of Immortality ....A ship leaves ...
by Henry Van Dyke - 1852 - 1933

I am standing by the seashore.
A ship at my side spreads her white sails to the morning breeze
and starts for the blue ocean.

She is an object of beauty and strength,
and I stand and watch
until at last she hangs like a peck of white cloud

just where the sun and sky come down to mingle with each other.
Then someone at my side says, 'There she goes!
Gone where? Gone from my sight - that is all.

She is just as large in mast and hull and spar
as she was when she left my side
and just as able to bear her load of living freight
to the places of destination.
Her diminished size is in me, not in her.

And just at the moment when someone at my side says,
'There she goes! '
there are other eyes watching her coming,
and other voices ready to take up the glad shout :
'Here she comes!'

You Are Remembered on This Special Birthday
Forever Loved, Missed and Kept Alive Within My Heart
Until We Meet Again

Your Maw
Your Woman

Birthday Wish

Happy Birthday Laura
Today is your special day
Today an angel came our way

We will celebrate this day for you
Sharing memories and maybe a laugh or two
Opening our hearts then shed some tears for you

We'll have a cake to honor you
As we blow out the candles, I'll make a wish
A birthday wish that can never be

I wish this wish could only come true
I wish it because we all miss you
Happy Birthday Laura, We all love you

Happy Birthday Laura

Happy Birthday my precious Laura
I face another birthday without you
My heart aches without you here
Only for today Laura, Iíll not cry a tear

Iíll flood my mind with wonderful memories
The one thing death cannot take away
Precious times we shared together
My beautiful daughter and her mother

I hope heaven is celebrating for you today
I just wish I could be there too
Happy Birthday my sweet Laura Ann
Happy Birthday to you in the promise land

  Happy Birthday Laura  

Never a day goes by that I do not think of you
Your beauty is forever hidden in my soul
I still feel your death was unjustly due
Laura, my memories of you I'll forever hold
Laura, I wish you a Happy Birthday
Even though my heart is still broken for you
I shall remember the happy memories of you today
This is my special gift for you
Happy Birthday my beautiful and precious darling
I would love so much to be celebrating today with you
In spirit and in love I know we are together
From all of us to you, Happy Birthday Laura darling
~ Written by Doyle Alldredge, 24 September 2008 (Revised)

  Happy Birthday  

Itís your birthday again, another year gone by
It is sad to know you will not be here
It seems all I want is to cry.
We shared 34 birthdays together
Candles multiplying by the years
We thought forever.
While we celebrate your birth, Laura
We cry at your passing
We cherish the memories about you, Laura
Your birthday will always be
Never to be forgotten
It is a promise from me.
I just like to say
Though we be apart
Itís still a special day
Happy Birthday!

God's Garden

God looked around his garden and found an empty place
He then looked down upon the Earth and saw your tired face
He put his arms around you and lifted you to rest
With the help of his angels they flew you to your heavenly place

God's garden must be beautiful, he always takes the best
He knew you were suffering, he knew you were in pain
He knew that you would never get well on Earth again

He saw the road was getting rough
and the hills too hard to climb
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
~ Author Unknown

"Perhaps they are not stars, but rather openings in heaven
where the love of our lost ones pours through
and shines down upon us to let us know they are happy.Ē
~ Eskimo Proverb

Rest Well My Sweet Angel in Heaven The Fragrant Lily of My Life

When I close my eyes, I can clearly see
My lovely child next to me

Thereís so much weíd like to say
We just donít know where to start

Happy Birthday Laura, my daughter my friend

"...with your final heartbeat, kiss the world goodbye
and go in peace and laugh on glory's side
and fly to Jesus, fly to Jesus,
fly to Jesus and live"----
Chris Rice 'Untitled Hymn'

My Heart, My Soul and all that was and is no more
She waits for me upon a distant shore
I remember this sweet creature that graced my life upon this earth
From the very moment of her birth
This mother's heart will grieve until my time on earth is through
I pray that my last years will be so few
I hold this gracious child within my heart
And there she'll live until from life I will depart

I miss you my beautiful little girl
Your Woman


To Those I Love
If I should ever leave you whom I love
To go along the Silent Way, grieve not,
Nor speak of me with tears, but laugh and talk
Of me as if I were beside you there.
(I'd come - I'd come, could I but find a way!
But would not tears and grief be barriers?)
And when you hear a song or see a bird I loved,
please do not let the thought of me be sad . . .
For I am loving you just as I always have . . .
You were so good to me!
There are so many things I wanted still
To do - so many things to say to you . . .
Remember that I did not fear . . .
It was just leaving you that was so hard to face . . .
We cannot see Beyond . . .
But this I know:
I loved you so -
'twas heaven here with you!
by Isla Paschal Richardson


Are there birthdays in Heaven?
Does the angel blow his horn?
Announcing to everybody
That this is the day you were born?

Can the stars be your balloons
And angel food your cake?
Presents wrapped in moonbeams
All the angels helped to make.

Birthdays meant so much to you
They were always a big deal
Birthday presents, lots of friends
And perhaps a special meal.

So I'll whisper a little prayer today
Asking everyone up above
To sing you a Happy Birthday song
And give you all my love.

A Special Birthday

Please God, make them remember that today is a special birthday.
Make them understand that the memories don't go away.
Bless them with ears to hear and hearts that care.
Enable them to listen while I share.
Shelter them that they may never know my pain.
Help them to help me know that my child's life was not in vain.
Help them to remember, Lord,
that I wish my child was here so we could still celebrate.
To understand that I still feel the nearness of my child.
To see beyond my smile and the words "I'm OK"
Please God, let just one remember that

The Sky Has A Hole In It

If you look toward the Heavens,
you'll see proof forevermore.
That God created us a way to see
Heaven has a hole in it's floor.

We can take a peek just anyday
and the proof is always there.
God wants us to know He loves us.
To remind us how much He cares.

I was looking toward Heaven
and just in a split minute.
I snapped this picture of proof ...
The sky has a hole in it.

When you long to see your loved ones,
Oh, keep your eyes toward the sky.
Just remember the sky has a hole in it.
God created for you and I.

We Do Not Need A Special Day

We do not need a special day
To bring you to our minds
The days we do not think of you
Are very hard to find

Each morning when we awake
We know that you are gone
And no one knows the heartache
As we try to carry on

Our hearts still ache with sadness
And secret tears still flow
What it meant to lose you
No one will ever know

Our thoughts are always with you
Your place no one can fill
In life we loved you dearly
In death we love you still

There will always be a heartache
And often a silent tear
But always a precious memory
Of the days when you were here

If tears could build a staircase
And heartaches make a lane
We'd walk the path to Heaven
And bring you home again

We hold you close, within our hearts
And there you will remain
To walk with us throughout our lives
Until we meet again

Our family chain is broken now
An nothing seems the same
But as God calls us one by one
The chain will link again.

Happy Birthday Laura My Darling
You Would have been 49 years old today, November 5th
How will I go on for the rest of my life
without you in it
But I will see you again where the sun shines
and there will be no more tears
and no more sorrow and eternal joy
Take care of those babies up there,
especially the Little Beaver
Look at what his mommy has done for me
Please come and see me in my dreams
and talk to me and tell me you're fine
My love to you my baby, until we meet again

Your Mommy into eternity

Dear Ann and ANGEL Laura

I saw a butterfly today
It reminded me of you
Was it you, was it a sign
Were my dreams coming true

My ANGEL My Laura
Were you coming home to me
Was it in my imagination
Or would I have to set you free

I was sitting on my porch
You had landed on a leaf
I Prayed that you would stay
Would I have really found PEACE

You were there for a while
Before you had to fly away
Ever since then I look for you
Hoping you will come one day

Written By Sue-Anne Aguilera~~~Lee'sMom


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
