This is my daughter Caitlyn. She would be turning 5 years old tomorrow, but sadly we celebrate her day of life without her. Which it's hard to think of as a parent that she should be here and celebrating not us celebrating without her.
She was a brave and strong little girl. She had every doctor well most doctors wrapped around her lil finger and knew how to use them long lashes to get them do what ever it took to make her feel better. She loved to prove them wrong on so many occasions it wasn't even funny.
She sadly became an angel on February 6, 2012. We miss her so much and there is still that empty void in hearts and home without her. Hug your kiddos while you can, you can never say I love you enough when they are little. I leave you with this poem that so fits her life.
(Author By Linda Jo Jackson, Ottawa, Canada)
|Don't grieve for me, for now I'm free.|
I'm following the path God has laid you see.
I took His hand when I heard Him 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 peace at the close of the day.
If my parting has left a void,
Then fill it with remembered joys.
A friendship shared, a laugh, a kiss,
Oh 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 too brief.
Don't lengthen it now with undue grief.
Lift up your hearts and peace to thee.
God wanted me now; He set me free!
