Memory of my Daughter

And Our Sister

Our own

Special Sweet Angel in the Air.


Our Special Angel!

When you hear an Angel softly whisper to you,

In the light of the day, or the darkness of the night.
When you feel the presence of an Angel caress you,
And see their beautiful wings spread in graceful flight.

When something inside you just makes you smile,
Or you feel a warmth suddenly wash over your heart.
When your dreams are beautiful and include an Angel,
As you lay with your head on your pillow, in the dark.

When you're alone, and everything is quiet around you,
Yet you can hear the sweetest lullaby being sung.
When waking up in the morning, any troubles feel lighter,
From speaking with an Angel, before a new day has begun.

Then you know I am the Angel who you can feel and hear;
Your special Angel from Heaven who will always be so near.
I'm no longer able to be here in body, but I'm with you everyday,
As my loving heart, my soul, and my spirit, will never be far away.

Always take time to smell the Roses


By Debbie's Mother


I thought I knew pain when I gave birth and cried,

Please God let it be over

I thought I knew pain when a Love ended and I cried

Please God make it end

I thought I knew pain when my child was hurting and I cried

Please God help them

I thought I knew pain when my heart was breaking when a trusted

one let me down and I cried

Please God why

But I knew not what pain was until I cried

Please God don't let it be true

Please God make it go away

Please God I can't stand it

Take me and send her back

Then I knew pain

By Debbie's Mother

"Out of the Darkness"

I looked ahead and I saw The Light

Out of the Light

There came a voice "I have an offer"

Out of the Light

The voice spoke "Take my Hand"

Out of the Light

I heard a whisper "Oh yes I will take the offer"

Out of the light

I heard a whisper" Do not be sad for I had an offer

I could not decline"

Out of the Light

I heard a whisper

" A promise of never another tear, or pain, always a smile, of eternal joy,

always rainbows and sunshine"

Out of the Light

I heard " Mother I did not need to ask what should I do.

I had an offer I could not decline"

Out of the Light

I heard " I will walk slow, So you can catch up"

Out of the Light

I heard "Don't be sad for I am Happy at Last

For I had an offer I could not decline"

Out of the Light came to me 2 days after she joined our Lord

Written by Debbie's Mother

Dictated by Debbie


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 see you walk out the door,
I would give you a hug and 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 yours", And
certainly there's 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.

One Year Since You Left

 It’s been a year

And the pain has eased some

Like a pain that has been anesthetized

It’s been a year

The memories are still sharp and

Clear as though they just happened

It’s been a year since you left us

To travel this earth without you

To awaken to every day

Without you here to share the day

It’s been a year since you left us

For a better place

At peace with our Father

It’s been a year since you

Choose the path to glory

With sunshine and rainbows

No sorrow, no pain

It’s been a year since you left us

We still grieve for our loss

Our minds tell us you are happy

Our hearts know its true

But the empty place you left

Will never be filled

Never to behold your smile

Hear your laugh again

But I close my eyes and I see you watching

Over us as you did here on earth

It’s been a year since you left us

But it’s only been a second in time

Since you left us


Remembered after 6 Years

It has now been 6 years since you left

this weary world for a better place.

You are still missed as much today as the day you left.

There is a part of you that dwells here within our hearts

And there is the part of you that dwells within the wind

and the stars and sunshine

even the raindrops contain your tears

Our love will never die.

Debbie Loved Yellow Roses

We know Debbie is close now and we are secure you are in Heaven.

Debbie we know we do not need to tell you how much

We Loved YOU, but we will say it anyway


Don't go too far from the gates.

We will see you soon and we will be united again

Mother, Joyce, Sky and Eric.
