Veronica Frances Rojas
June 27, 1992 - June 28, 2010
Right before Veronica was killed, she was coming home from the beach, so it's the last beautiful place she got to see. That's why I sent you beach pictures of her.
Veronica's hobbies were only her son Emmanuel, who we all call Manny... he was two years old when she was killed. She loved to cook for him, and any holiday she loved spending with him.
Whether it was Easter, Christmas, Mother's Day, his or her birthday... he was Veronica's world.
But in our hearts you are always there,
The gates of memory will never close,
We miss you more than anyone knows,
With tender love and deep regret,
We who love you will never forget.
Let it not be said my life was in vain,
I've just moved on to a higher plane.
So I can keep better watch over you,
As you move on like you need to do
Though this life has reached an end,
I'm waiting for you around the bend.
I beg you please don't weep for me!
It's not so bad for soon you'll see,
That I will linger long past this sunset,
In the hearts of you who love me yet.

You are the diamonds in the snow,
You are the sun that melts my pain,
You are the gently autumns rain.
You are the graceful bird in flight,
You are the stars that shine at night,
You were the heartbeat of my life,
I wish you weren't gone but here instead.
We have you as an angel now.
Blessed by the peace you bring.
And.although I cannot see you.
I can feel the brush of your wings.
You bring me light in darkness
And calmness in times of fear.
And hope lives in the knowing
That you are always near.
By Brenda Penepent
For just a moment
I'm sure I saw
a flicker of light ahead.
Perhaps it was your smile.
Though past now, remembered, in my heart
like the small sound of
a butterfly passing by.
No night is so dark
that can not be brightened
with memories of you.
Raindrops carry along
your blessings from heaven
to wash away my tears
and bring me hope anew.
A link gone from our chain;
But though we're parted for awhile,
We know we'll meet again.
Thank you so much to my dear friend, Linda, Mom to Angel Tina,
for all your help with getting the song, In the Arms of the Angel, for this page!
