~*My Sincerest Sympathy *~

        

~* Celebrate My Life *~

Her eyes were closed…as all bid her adieu,
Her gentle spirit flew skyward…all knew this to be true.

She was not alone…as she drifted into the night
further and further…into the glorious light.

As angels held her close...worry would dissappear,
not alone on her journey...she had no fear.

The pain and emptiness…in those she left behind
she knew would dissipate…in time they would find.

Listen as she whispers…“Celebrate what was my life,
mourn not only my death…or fear my afterlife.”

“Celebrate my life…just keep my memory alive,
God made this the easy way…there in your heart I’ll survive.”

“Fear not for me now…“Celebrate the days that I was living,
keep my memory alive…for in Gods hands we're all accepting.”

*
~* May she rest in peace *~
*

~ For The Chadwick Family ~
In Memory of their daughter
Ginger Michelle Chadwick
.

artist: unknown



~* Tell someone in your family that you love them today *~

Sharon~

Very tender...thank you for sharing your heart, and extending your compassion for all to be a part of....


Softly...


Lauren~

I would rather have one breath of his hair,
one kiss of his mouth,
one touch of his hand
than an eternity without it.

You say with compassionate elegance...what we are all feeling in this time of loss that saddens the Passions family. Thank you for finding the words that I lack.
Perfect Sharon.

The greatest honor you can pay anyone that passes on is to celebrate their life and the love you had for them, as they are never really ever gone, but only in a different form.

Mysteria this is exquisite writing the words flowing over the page with such ease. Why is it that you can write so very How do you manage to se the scene and show the spirit to perfection. I loved this one, it has your sense of life running through it. Your heart is clear in this and this will be a treasured gift for the Chadwick family.

You know your signature is my mum’s philosophy, she tells those she loves often, I think you have a heart of gold. God bless you always

Love and warm stuff
As always
Krissy

And while thy willing soul transpiers
at every pore with instant fires

Krissy ~ What a sweet compliment, and I think what I feel and writes comes from a lot of loss in my life and learning to see the positive side to anything negative.  And by the way, if your Mom says that she is a darn good Mom

James Michael, and Sky, thank you.

Dear Sharon,
For all you have done here and especially for all you have done behind the scenes thank you becomes totally inadequate. What an incredible friend you are as are all of my friends on these blue pages.

I spent the last two days at the High School celebrating Ginger's life with those that shared it...her students. You can expect some fun and celebratory poetry from that absolutely incredible gift.

Bless you all...Larry

It's never too late to have a good childhood! Woohoo!

Heartfelt and beautiful poem for the Chadwick family.  I'm sure this must give that family the touch of an angel.
