I know someday, we shall meet again,
You will be the teacher leading small angels,
and holding their hands.




Thank you for sharing this very special poem with us, Kellie...and also for the picture.

We knew from Ginger Chadwick's Dad, what a special person she was....as is he...
but it was absolutely incredible to hear it from one of her student's also.

It seems that she must have made quite an impression on you and that alone, is a tribute to her.

Please keep posting poetry here at Passions.

Kellie, welcome to Passions! I'm so sorry for your loss. Your poem would do Ms. Chadwick proud. Beautifully done.

Kellie,
I was so excited today when you told me at school that you were going to stay here at Passions!

But everyone should know...this is the "beginning-of-the-school-year, I'm-older-than-I-look" look for Ginger. But that is truly what I love about this picture.

Thank you Kellie, always.

This is absolutely beautiful, what an awesome display of love and respect and the heart of a warm poet.  Wonderful work, welcome to passions

Strive for higher levels, if they seem out of reach... Grow, and they will get closer.

Thank You all for all the kind words. I was very happy at the flagpole today at school, seeing all those candles and the flag, It was a very happy day to meet my teacher's parents and I am looking forward to coming to the service tomorrow afternoon. I am very honored to be able to have the opportunity to read it to everyone in attendance, with the help of my friend Serene who is going to read a portion of it as well. Thank You
Godbless you all
With Love,
Kellie

I was very happy to read it and it made me feel so much better. In the past year I have been to 6 funerals today my 7th so I have trained myself not to cry, but let me let you in on a secret... I cried today. I was honored and I was glad I was able to take a peak and see her one last time. I hadn't seen her since the tuesday before she died. I am just thankful that before I went home on tuesday I stopped by the class room to say hi. and that I would talk to her monday. And I did. I talked to her through prayer and I think I got an answer today. She will never look away from us. I love her, I love her family. I will always have a place for the entire Chadwick family in my heart if you need me I am here.

Kellie,
I liked then and I like it now. Thank you for being there.

If tears could build a stairway and memories a lane, I'd walk right up to heaven and bring you home again.
