In Loving Memory of
Laura Ann Kimble

~ Our Valentines ~
This is a very special gift from our dear friend Bruce.
We sit here with our memories and with tears
that stream forever down upon our face
In remembrance of a loved one that our heart cannot replace
and no longer feel their sweet embrace
We've lost a precious child or someone that we've held so dear
which caused us so much pain; much more then we could bear
Feeling that our hearts are being stabbed with a sharp and cutting knife
In parting with those that we have loved much more then our own life
With unending questions of where did our loved ones go
For now we see through a dark and foggy window and it's not our time to know
Through tears we look with sorrow upon a world where strangers we've become
To remember every detail of our Valentines and those that we have loved
Can they see our endless weeping from the place where they have gone
How can it be that we must find a way to keep living and move on
God's mercy is so boundless and he hears our endless pleas
As we beg and ask for miracles to see our loved ones in our dreams
Maybe just a glimpse of those so dear to bring our hearts a little peace
Just to know that they are near to us and not far beyond our reach
He asks that we just Trust in Him and on His promise to rely
If we listen in the stillness our soul will hear His voice reply
Knowing that it's He that speaks to us and says
Your loved one did not die!

These two very special gifts are from Donna and her Angel Rade.
These are two beautiful and loving gifts for Angel Laura from my dear friend, Carol, mom to Angel Michael.
Happy Valentine's Day In Heaven
My Sweet Lily
How can it be that fourteen years have passed since you've sent me a sweet bouquet
And your fragrant candles so special to me, my gift for Valentine's Day
Always such a beautiful child from the moment you were born to this earth
Loving and giving with your heart made of gold right from the day of your birth
No desire to be a popular Miss, you helped the weak to not stumble and fall
Those teens left behind, you took under your wing
Your chance lost to be Belle of the Ball
You grew up to be such a very kind soul, leaving heart prints behind in your wake
So many lives were changed from your touch, you gave of yourself with such grace
You helped those two little girls, while their mommy was out of town
Drying their tears with the love from your heart
Earning jewels for your heavenly crown
And your brother's two little ones, who adored you with all of their hearts
Always there to love and to guide, you were their sun, their moon and their stars
And I almost forgot little Emma, who was one of your most precious jewels
And the day she was born, you called her your own,
This child of your heart that would melt hearts of stone
You looked after me, like you were the mom, you just knew you were stronger then I
You worried and fussed at me all of the time, I was proud to know you were mine
What did I do to deserve one such as you, with my life so full of mistakes
With all my wrong turns, neglectful at times, didn't always have what it takes
And if you did notice, you never let on, just went on loving me as your most precious mom
How close we became with the passing of years, And we sure had more fun then the shedding of tears
Our bond kept growing so much stronger with time
You knew I was yours and I knew you were mine
How can it be it's four years you're away, without my bouquet and candle today
I'm sending my love to your heavenly home, Your mama is walking through life all alone
This path is so rocky and cutting me deep, like a spear in my heart that's frozen with grief
My beautiful Lily, I'm coming your way, just patiently wait till the Lord calls my name
I'm expecting to see you there waiting for me, to welcome me home where no sadness will be
This fourth Valentine's Day with no candle to light and no sweet bouquet
Instead I am sending you kisses this day
The love of a mother that lives within me, still looking for you where my eyes cannot see
My beautiful angel, sweet Lily of mine, I'm lighting a candle for you this time
And I have a bouquet I'm holding till then, when on the sweet day I will see you again
My beautiful child, my angel, my friend, this bond is eternal and never will end
Never goodbye, just so long for a while, send me your love with your beautiful smile
Come to my dreams and stay for a time, I miss you so much because you are mine
God has counted the tears of this mother that grieves
And He cries up in heaven for the pain that he sees
I know when I get there so happy you'll be
And that's when the Lord will return you to me

A Valentine Sent To Heaven
Angels come swiftly, hurry to our side
Carry our hearts back with you, to our children in heaven now reside.
Carry them gently, handle them with care
And take them to their sides, and gently lay them there.
Whisper to them of our love, and our longing hearts
All our lonely aching while we are apart.
Hold them gently to you, and let them see our love
Let them see this, our valentine to them above.
Reassure them of our love, that it is still the same
And gently hold us when we cry, when we hear them whisper our names.
Let this exchange of love be our valentine
And whisper to them that our love will stand the test of time.
Show them the memories are safely held inside
And with us they will always abide.
Let them see this day, a day filled with our love
As we shed our tears, and whisper their names, to our Valentines above.

LOST IN MEMORIES
Sometimes I get lost in memories
In hopes of blocking out my grief
So I may for a time receive a little relief
I recall the day of your birth
As I laid my eyes upon you
You were the prettiest baby on all the earth
I said I would take your hand
To lead you down the pathway
Never letting you go astray
Many things were taught as you grew
To prepare you for what may lie ahead
I wanted no surprises for you
I thought of the wonderful things we had shared
Of things I planned in the future for you
Never thinking that one day, I'd be without you
For a brief time I find relief
Lost in the memories of you
What else can a parent do
Someday this will all pass
I'll make that journey as you
So I'll continue to carry this grief
Until I can be with you!
Written by Doyle Alldredge,
We Do Not Need A Special Day
We do not need a special day
To bring you to our minds
The days we do not think of you
Are very hard to find
Each morning when we awake
We know that you are gone
And no one knows the heartache
As we try to carry on
Our hearts still ache with sadness
And secret tears still flow
What it meant to lose you
No one will ever know
Our thoughts are always with you
Your place no one can fill
In life we loved you dearly
In death we love you still
There will always be a heartache
And often a silent tear
But always a precious memory
Of the days when you were here
If tears could build a staircase
And heartaches make a lane
We'd walk the path to Heaven
And bring you home again
We hold you close, within our hearts
And there you will remain
To walk with us throughout our lives
Until we meet again
Our family chain is broken now
An nothing seems the same
But as God calls us one by one
The chain will link again.

This is a beautiful and loving gift to Laura from my dear friend Pammi.

SAY MY CHILDS NAME
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!
