"I will always love you"

A light from our houshold is gone,
A voice we loved is stilled;
A place made vacant in our home
can never more be filled,
Loving and kind in all ways
Upright and just to the end of her days,
Sincere and true in her heart and mind
A beautiful memory she left behind.


Christen,was a blessing that only God could give.Christen was born seventeen months before I was diagnosed with cervical cancer.She was truly a blessing that is missed.We miss her smile,her beautiful sparkling eyes and her talkative self, and most of all her love of life an people. Christen touch many lives in many ways she left a lastings impression on everyone.

We lost our thirteen year old daughter on November 8, 1998, to colon cancer. Christen became ill in April 1998, she complain of stomachache, she was admitted into Phoebe Putney hospital twice before she was tranferred to Scottish Rite Children Hospital in Atlanta, Ga. Christen was diagnosed with colon cancer on July17,1998.When the doctor told me my baby had cancer a part of me died, I had so many unanswered questions. Christen had surgery on July 23, 1998, she came home from the hospital on July 31,1998,she was doing well , the doctors said she handled the surgery well for a child her age.

Christen started school in August, she had her first chemotheraphy treatment two days before she went to school. She attented school every day she could,she would go to Atlanta every monday for treatment, she was truly a blessing throughout her illness she never complain nor was she angry SHE lived EVERYDAY.

On September14,1998,after a chemo treatment she became ill again an was taken back to the hospital, as I watch the doctors perform a catscan on my daughter I could see the concerns that the doctor had. Christen had a second suurgery on September 20,1998. when the doctor entered Christen room's after the surgery she told us that she had another mass an it's was impossible to remove all the cancer. My whole world fell apart, Christen stayed in the hospital a week, the doctors labeled her illness as terminal we brought her home from the hospital my family an I took care of her. The pain I felt watching that disease is a pain no mother can describe.

Christen died November 8, 1998 two days after her thirteenth birthday.We miss her terribly an the emptiness that can never be filled. Our lives will never be the same without her.I think of her everyday the pain never goes away occasionally I have goods days. People often say the sun will shine again- I find that hard to believe, but i'm waiting.We have so many friends an family who support us an most of all we have faith in God and know that through him we will find strength.Thank you for allowing me to share my lost with you I hope that I can help someone as I have to have been inspired by others.

God saw she was getting tried
and a cure was not to be.
So he put his arms around her
and whispered, "Come with me."

With tear filled eyes we watcher her
suffer and fade away.
Although we loved her deeply,
we could not make her stay.

A golden heart stopped beating,
hard - working hands put to rest.
God broke our hearts to prove to us
He only takes the best.
-- Pat Thompson mother of Christen Thompson
