In Loving Memory of
Shauna LaPreal O'Neal
September 23, 1969 - December 11, 2001

My daughter Shauna was born Sept 23, 1969 in Tucson, Arizona. Shauna passed away Dec 11, 2001. She was 34 years old, and left three beautiful children.
I wrote this poem below for her for her funeral. It says alot about who she was.

Bright Star
In memory of Shauna LaPreal O'Neal

My precious Bright Star, shining
From the beginning of your days
Shining beyond the borders of our lives
To light our days with joy.
I see your laughing eyes, awake and wide
Gazing at the wonders of this life
Full of life's joy, you seized the moment
Filling it with power and with laughter.
Bright Star, shining, and yet so far away
We held you for a moment, brief and warm
Your journey, filled our dreams
Yet we never knew the depth of you
Life's burdens borne with solemn sadness
The mortal body deemed you pain
And yet, within the pain you touched
And filled the lives of those you loved.
Bright Star, shining, far away
We watch the sky in hope we find some peace,
You waiting there to light our journey home.

You took my child in winter
When Christmas spread its wings
A season of light and laughter
When every angel sings.

Did you need her there to carol
Joining the angels choir?
Did you need to hear her singing
To warm our hearts with fire?

My heart still burns within me
I feel her presence near
There was no need to take her
She held hope within her sphere.

You took my child in winter
When cold winds whip the air
I left her lying there alone
Knowing You'd be there.

You took my child in winter
Away from our hearts and love
She only knew we loved her
Now she knows Your love.

Bring her home in springtime
Let us hear her sing again
When they day of resurrection
Takes away this Mother's pain.

Written by Connie, Shauna's Mom

I Believe
Performed by Diamond Rio

Every now and then soft as breath upon my skin
I feel you come back again
And it's like you haven't been gone a moment from my side
Like the tears were never cried
Like the hands of time are holding you and me
And with all my heart I'm sure we're closer than we ever were
I don't have to hear or see, I've got all the proof I need
There are more than angels watching over me
I believe, I believe

That when you die your life goes on
It doesn't end here when you're gone
Every soul is filled with light
It never ends and if I'm right
Our love can even reach across eternity
I believe, I believe

Forever, you're a part of me
Forever, in the heart of me
And I'll hold you even longer if I can
The people who don't see the most
Say that I believe in ghosts
And if that makes me crazy, then I am
'Cause I believe

There are more than angels watching over me
I believe, I believe

Maria's Tribute to Christopher

Jesus Wept

Dear Connie

I Pray this poem can give you a little PEACE.


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

"The poetry you wrote for your Angel Shauna touched me so much,
you are so very talented and made a wonderful tribute to this precious angel.
May Shauna be enjoying all the beauty of Heaven."

and music and has touched my heart. Only another mother that has lost a daughter
can know what you feel, and my heart feels your pain.
May God always be with you."

For Shauna

A shining star in heaven
You loved ones will be with you once again
Life is but a breath away from eternity
Where all souls once again shall meet
Each circle of life will forever be complete
With Love
