In Bailey's memory

When God calls little children to dwell with him above, We mortals sometimes question the wisdom of His love. Perhaps God tires of calling the aged to His fold, So He picks a rosebud before it can grow old. God knows how much we need them, and so He takes but a few, To make the land of heaven more beautiful to view. Believing this is difficult, still somehow we must try, The saddest word mankind knows will always be "Goodbye." So when a little child departs, we who are left behind must realize, God loves children, Angels are hard to find.

I wasn't sure if I would post on this subject but our daughter April sent this to me and I thought I would share. Yesterday was a difficult day for us as our granddaughter (April's third baby) was called home 7 years ago. While I'm thankful for the 6 months and 16 days we had with her, its never enough. Through our faith, the support of family and friends we find the strength to go on until we can be with her again.

We Miss and Love you Bailey very much.

Till We Meet Again....

I love that poem "Little Angels." It just makes the your heart feel so much better, when thinking of Bailey going home. I hope the next couple of days are looking back on sweet memories of her. I know how special and how loved she was to everyone in your family. Thanks for letting us know, so we can keep your family in our prayers during this time of rememberance.

I pray for the family that Bailey left behind but know that she is with our Lord and Savior and together they wait for the Homecoming.

I am posting thru a mutual friend, Leslie. I am sorry about the loss your family has had to suffer, even after seven years. I know personally that they memories never leave, but they do become sweeter. The poem is lovely, I will print it out for myself. Thank you.
