They say that time heals the hurt but it only eases it a tiny bit. You will always be missed deeply by your mom, family and friends.

Happy belated Birthday. I was in your mom's office last week and your pictures light up the room. You will always be in her heart and missed so very much. May you spread your wings, Little Angel, and place them around your mom when she's missing so the most! Helen Hannon

Time passes by so quickly. You left this life much too young and I know that your mom misses you tremendously. I know that you are with God and smiling down on your mom.

It has been a year since you have gone to be with the Lord and Grandpa and I know that you are happy in your new home. We look at your picture and wish that you were with us, but we know God had other plans for you. We must remember that the Lord loves us and cries with us. As Jesus said "I am with you always, to the very end of the age". Grandma & Grandpa Gove
