Please be patient, Logan is worth the wait!

12/7/98 - 12/9/98

Desiree writes: "12/9/98 - One of my favorite pictures - Logan was looking right in my eyes - into my soul!
This was taken shortly before he died. They were amazed he was still 'awake' and alert!"


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 heart ache
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 make 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,
And nothing seems the same,
But as God calls us one by one,
The chain will link again.

These wonderful images above are a loving gift from my dear friend, Pammi.

This special gift for Angel Logan is from my friend Janet.

"He would not want his memory to be a dark cloud forever over your head--better that he be the elusive
but ever-present rainbow after the storm."

The Rainbow Connection
Written by Paul Williams and Kenneth Ascher
Sung by Kermit the Frog

Why are there so many songs about rainbows
And what's on the other side
Rainbows are visions
They're only illusions
And rainbows have nothing to hide
So we've been told and some choose to
Believe it
But I know they're wrong wait and see

Someday we'll find it
The rainbow connection
The lovers, the dreamers and me

Who said that every wish
Would be heard and answered
When wished on the morning star
Somebody thought of that
And someone believed it
And look what it's done so far
What's so amazing
That keeps us star gazing
What do we think we might see

Someday we'll find it
The rainbow connection
The lovers, the dreamers and me

Have you been half asleep
And have you heard voices
I've heard them calling my name
Are these the sweet sounds that called the young sailors
I think they're one and the same
I've heard it too may times to ignore it
There's something that I'm supposed to be

Someday we'll find it
The rainbow connection
The lovers, the dreamers and me

"A Message of Love"
~ Written by Stina Lisa

To my little lost child
Please accept this message of love
You were never forgotten;
always in my heart,
And in my prayers to God above.

Although I had to let you go
My arms ached with emptiness
For the loss of your warmth;
the loss of your touch;
The loss of your love and tenderness.

Over the years I yearned to see
Your smile, your tears, your innocent eyes
To watch you play, hear you laugh,
to hum a song as you sleep;
To be there again as you arise.

My little lost child you will never know
The pain and loss I've felt inside
When I walked away with empty arms;
a hurting and sorrowful heart
Where my love for you forever abides.

Lovingly lifted from poem My Brief Rainbow
by Peggy Kociscin...

Rainbows appear only on dreary, rainy days.
They beautify the world for a few brief moments.
These moments, however, can be spectacular.
YOU were my brief rainbow.


It was a bright and beautiful day in heaven,
the streets were strewn with beautiful flowers of every kind imaginable
Angels were talking in excited tones and laughter rang from all around!
Halos were polished to a gleam, Wings were wide and full,
Each angel carried a candle that was lit!
They lined up in rows two by two, it was going to be a wonderful celebration.

Every one was ready, the parade was about to begin!
An Angel who was in line and ready to go, glanced over to the park,
And saw a the tinniest angel sitting alone,
his halo was not polished and wings were not unfurled!
And his candle was by his side unlit.
Tears were coursing down his tiny face!

The Angel walked to this tiny little angel and spoke to him:
Why are you not joining in the parade,
the little one looked up at the other Angel, and spoke:
I would dearly love to join in the celebration,
but each time I get my halo just right
and my wings spread out and my candle lit,
My mommy and daddy's tears put out the flame, because they miss me so very much.

The other angel understood the tiny one all to well,
he gathered the tiny one in his arms and picked up his halo and candle
put each of them in their proper place!
and he told the tiny angel it will be OK

For today is going to be a celebration of love and welcome,
and I want you to say a prayer for your mommy and daddy.
And because today is a special day
I know they will hear your prayer and find comfort in knowing
that you are gone from their arms, but never their hearts.

The tiny angel began to pray:
Dear Mommy and Daddy, I am thinking of you today,
and I miss you very much,
we are having a wonderful celebration today!
And I would like very much to join in.
But every time I lite my candle your tears put out the flame
and I cannot join in with all the others today,
knowing how sad you are with out me,
but weep no more mommy and daddy
I am no longer in pain,
and I am here with so many who will look after me until you are here to do it.

I miss you so very much!
And even though you cannot see me or touch me or feel me,
I am with you forever in your hearts!
so weep no more and know we will be together again
and what a celebration that will be!

I'm Free

Don't grieve for me, for now I'm free.
I'm following the path God laid for me.
I took God's hand when I heard the call;
I turned my back and left it all.

I could not stay another day to laugh,
to love, to work or play.
Tasks left undone must stay that way.
I found that place at the close of day.

If my parting has left a void,
then fill it with remembered joy.
A friendship shared, a laugh, a kiss.
Ah yes, these things, I too, will miss.

Be not burdened with times of sorrow,
I wish you the sunshine of tomorrow.
My life's been full, I savored much,
good friends, good times, a loved one's touch

Perhaps my time seemed all to brief;
don't lengthen it now with undue grief.
Lift up your heart and share with me-
God wanted me now, God set me free.

Once upon a dream, I looked out among the stars
And watched a scene of Angels playing their guitars
It's for you and me and anyone who needs to know
There is a Heaven, a better place not far go.

The three poems just above and also the two images with the poems are also gifts from my dear friend Pammi.

You will eventually see the rainbow." ~ Quoted by Greg King
