My precious baby Billie Marie
So beautiful, so sweet
What plans we had for you
We wanted the best for you

When we looked into your eyes
We saw a peaceful love
A love of tenderness
A soul touching love

What thoughts did you have
As you gazed upon us
Did you feel as we felt for you
Were you blessed, as we were blessed by you

Little did we know in just a short time
Death would come and take you away
Our hearts were broken, our dreams shattered
Why, we cried, did it have to happen this way

Our lives were forever changed
Our hearts forever torn
Your death had overwhelmed us
We would never be the same again

Each time we look at your pictures
And as we look at your eyes
We shall always feel the love
From our angel in Heaven above.

It is with deepest sadness that we must let all of you know that our daughter Billie Marie Laura McDonagh has gone to home to our lord
and savior Jesus at 12:40 pm. She left us in a peaceful sleep. She is in heaven with her grandparents and great-grand parents.

We wish to thank all of you who kept her in your hearts and pray. Shirley and I could not have made this journey with out the love
for Billie Marie that you have shown for her.

We wish to thank all the doctors and nurses and nurses aids who cared for Billie Marie at Saint Jude. We know they did all they could.
But God wanted a special angel. And she is at peace.

Please keep us in mind and never forget that Billie Marie is in heaven watching over us. we would also like to thank all of you
who check in on her we love you all.

Feel free to write or e-mail us any time.

Thank you and God bless you.

How very softly you tiptoed into my world;
Almost silently, only a moment you stayed
But what an imprint your footprints left upon my heart~

Our Little Precious Angel

Our little precious angel,
She could not too stay long.
Enough to steal your heart away,
Then force you to be strong.
Enough to show you in a glimpse
How wonderful life can be.
And how no wealth or wordly good
Could take the place of thee.
Little Angel in a cloud
Looking down upon her family
And feeling forever proud.
That for a time, however short or long,
She had the chance to be
Our little precious angel,
so beautiful to see.

The mention of my child's name
may bring tears to my eyes,
But it never fails to bring music to my ears.
If you are really my friend,
let me hear the music of her name!
It soothes my broken heart and sings to my soul!

Dearest Mommy and Daddy...

When you wonder the meaning of life and love,
Know that I am with you
Close your eyes and feel me kissing you
in the gentle breeze across your cheek.
When you begin to doubt
that you shall ever see me again,
Quiet your mind and hear me,
I am in the whisper of the heavens,
Speaking of your love.
When you lose your identity,
When you question who you are,
Where you are going...
Open your heart and see me,
I am the twinkle of the stars
Smiling down upon you...
Lighting the path for your journey.
When you awaken each morning,
Not remembering your dreams
But feeling content and serene,
Know that I was with you,
Filling your nights with thoughts of me.
When you linger in the remnant pain,
Wholeness seeming so unfamiliar,
Think of me.
Know that I am with you
Touching you through the shared tears
Of a gentle friend easing the pain.
As the sunrise illuminates the desert sky,
As that breathtaking brilliance awakens your spirit,
Think of our time together...
All too brief...but ever brilliant.
When you are certain of us together,
When you are certain of your destiny,
Know that God created that moment in time
Just for us.
I am with you always.

Candle Night

A candle is lit in remembrance of you
Something my heart has led me to do
I silently gaze at the flickering flame
Softly and tenderly I whisper your name

Quietly by the glow of this lowly candle light
Wishing you were still here with all my might
Knowing in this broken heart of mine
My wishing for you is but a waste of time

Time slowly passes while the candle grows dim
I call out to God to seek answers from Him
When this is all done I retire to my bed
Then thoughts of you began filling my head

I close my eyes as I begin to weep
The tears silently falling as I drift toward sleep
Somewhere between as Im thinking of you
Softly I whisper, Goodnight my child, I love you.

The Cord

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 'til birth
This cord can't be seen
By any on Earth.
This cord does its work
Right from the start.
It binds us together
Attached to my heart.
I know that it's there
Though no one can see the invisible cord
From my child to me.
The strength of this cord
Is 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
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!

A small gift for Angel Billie Marie's family. She is such a beautiful baby. God bless you always.

Dearest Billie Marie

I have to say when I was at your site, your photos really touched my heart. You were a true sweetheart, you had the most beautiful eyes, your smile.
Mommy and Daddy she is just as beautiful, and been looked after, until you are with her again.


To Shirley and Bill

If we reached our hands out
Would you touch them back
Would we feel you
Or would we be dreaming
If we did feel you touch us
Would that feeling last
Or would that be a dream too

Mommy, Daddy no you won't feel me like you use to, but I am around you all, I have never left and never will. I can't wait for you to arrive
for me to show you all my new ANGEL friends, what we all do, and especially my new room, it has a window. Look up Mommy and Daddy, one of those stars are my window.
You see I am with you still.
