The Time Came When The Pain It Took To Stay Was Greater Than The Pain It Took To Go

" You may not think the world needed you, but it did. For you were unique: like no one that has ever been before or will come after. No one can speak with your voice; say your piece; smile your smile; or shine your light. No one can take your place for it was yours alone to fill. Because you are not here to shine your light, who knows how many travelers will lose their way as they try to pass by your empty place in the darkness."

 They that love beyond the world
Cannot be separated by it.
Death is but crossing the world,
As friends do the seas;
They live in one another still.
 -William Penn


This is your core family Stephanie, we knew you first, we loved you first. You will forever be in our hearts.
I love you baby girl,
I am, for always and forever,

 Don't think of her as gone away
her journey's just begun
life holds so many facets
this earth is only one.
Just think of her as resting
from the sorrows and the tears
in a place of warmth and comfort
where there are no days and years.
 Think how she must be wishing
if we could know today
that nothing but our sadness
can really pass away.
And think of her as living
in the hearts of those she touched
for nothing loved is ever lost and she is loved so much.






 To everything there is a season,
And a time to every purpose under the heaven.
A time to be born, and a time to die;
A time to plant, and a time to pluck
that which is planted;
A time to weep, and a time to laugh;
A time to mourn, and a time to dance;
A time to get, and a time to lose;
A time to keep, and a time to cast away;
A time to love, and a time to hate;
A time of war, and time of peace.

  -Ecclesiastes 3:1-8 



 Life is eternal; and love is immortal;
And death is only a horizon;
And a horizon is nothing
Save the limit of our sight.
 -Rossiter Worthington Raymond




We are connected, my child and I,
By an invisible cord not seen by the eye.

It's not like the cord that connects us at birth.
This cord can't be seen by any on earth.

The cord does it's work right from the start.
It binds us together, attached to my heart.

I know it's there, though no one can see -
The invisible cord from my child to me.

The strength of this cord, it's hard to describe.
It can't be destroyed. It can't be denied.

It's stronger than any cord man could create.
It withstands the test, and can hold any weight.

And though you are gone,
Though you're not here with me,
The cord is still there,
but no one can see.

It pulls at my heart...I am bruised...I am sore.
But this cord is my lifeline as never before.

I am thankful that God connects us this way.
A Mother and Child.......death can't take it away.
