|Let the memory of Paige be with us forever|
"My journey with Paige began the day she was born. I had the privilege to be at the hospital that day. Though I didn't see her often; she always greeted me with a beautiful smile and a warm hug...and her laughter reminded me of a free spirit...she is missed and never forgotten..."
"There are many things in life that no one understands,
like why a life so very young can slip right through our hands.
One moment life is perfect and the next it falls apart,
leaving us with nothing but an eternally aching heart."
"Yesterday was Paiges' 26th birthday. It's been 4+ years she was called home to heaven. I spent my day Iooking at photos of her. I found myself focused on her playful smiling face. And, for a moment I escaped to a serene happy place remembering her laughter and all she was; cherishing the honest, caring, loving spirit of her.
I read treasured cards she had given me and each word’s special meaning makes me see, the precious gift of love I was fortunate to receive, and I realized she’d never want to see us grieve.
For all the remaining seasons of my life on earth,
I’ll miss her merriment and mirth, and daily I’ll sadly long for all the yesterdays;missing the times we spoke and her gentle understanding ways.
Yet, the lessons of kindness and love she taught me,
And the good things in life she has helped me to see;
Linger as lasting gifts that comfort and will sustain,
Until I journey to that peaceful place and see her again.
Four years after her passing Paige Elyse is still strongly remembered and is still forever missed by those who truly loved her."
""I can't believe it's been 3 years since the passing of my beautiful niece. They say that time is a healer but as time goes on I seem to find it just as hard to accept that Paige is gone. This past Wednesday marked the 3 year anniversary of the day she went away. As I kneeled and prayed by her graveside with my heart broken again I found myself still struggling to understand why this had to happen. Paige will never be forgotten and every time I think of her I always shed tears but that's because I love her and wish that she was still here. Those who truly love her have lost a precious gift and I am confident that we will all meet up with her again someday. Paige is missed each and every day because she was someone very special who continues to means more to us than words could ever say. Until the day we meet again they will all be forever in my prayers.""
"My darling Paige,
It's been 3 yrs without you, life will never be the same. We miss you terribly. Not a day goes by without me missing you. The grief is endless. Last night it just hit me, like being stabbed in the chest, it hurts so much that I feel like just ripping my heart out of my chest. They say there is no greater pain in the world than losing a child and they are right. Having to bury you was the worst experience of my life. Daddy misses you so much and Sage misses her big sister. I hope you are having a great time in heaven. I love you, until we meet again.
"For Your Birthday In Heaven - Still loved still missed and very dear - Your Birthday's here but You aren't I'd send a gift but know I can't So I'll make a wish upon a star To carry my love to where You are."
"Someone is missing from our dinner table,
from our home and our lives.
Someone is missing from holiday celebrations,
family vacations and everywhere in between.
Our precious one is gone.
She will not have birthday parties, graduations, or celebrations.
We will miss her throughout eternity
and our family will never be complete.
Someone is missing, yet we go on.
Our lives were touched by her.
Changed forever by her brief existence.
Her memory we keep alive.
She lives now only in our hearts and minds,
We were blessed by her short life.
Our love for her is forever strong
and she will be FOREVER MISSED!!"
"June 15, 2015 ...the 2-year anniversary of my dear niece's accident. The pain of her loss is still there. Her remains were finally laid to rest in a beautiful place. All that love her and were touched by her existence and those that mattered to her were present. We all still mourned the loss of such a beautiful part of our family. A family that is a circle of love, not broken by loss, but made stronger by the memories Paige left us with. We will ALWAYS remember Paige Elyse!!!!!"
"“Only the GOOD die young”
Are the words Billy Joel sung
He said it so right, he said it so true
Spring is now here and all is anew
“Butterfly Kisses” are what I send you"
"Feb 16th was your birthday
and you were on my mind
as I sat by the window sill
missing you still
I had no birthday card to post
no glass to raise in a birthday toast
no wonder I felt extra morose"
"There is always a face before me,
A voice I would love to hear,
A smile I will always remember,
Of someone I love so dear.
Deep in my heart lies a picture,
More precious than silver or gold,
It's a picture of my my Niece,
Whose memory will never grow old."
"Everyday in my heart,
occasionally with a tear.
I wish you were here.
You are always near
everyday in my heart.
I miss you my sweet Niece."
"If roses grow in heaven,
Lord pick a bunch for me
Place them in my niece's arms
and tell her they're from me.
Tell her that I love her
And when she turns to smile
Place a kiss upon her cheek and
Hold her for a while.
Remembering her is easy
I do it every day
There's an ache within my heart
That will never go away."
"If we are fortunate, we are given a warning.
If not, there is only the sudden horror,
the wrench of being torn apart;
of being reminded that nothing is permanent,
not even the ones we love, the ones our lives revolve around.
Life is a fragile affair.
We are all dancing on the edge of a precipice,
a dizzying cliff so high we can't see the bottom.
One by one, we lose those we love most into the dark ravine.
So we must cherish them without reservation.
Now. Today. This minute.
We will lose them or they will lose us someday.
This is certain. There is no time for bickering.
And their loss will leave a great pit in our hearts;
a pit we struggle to avoid during the day and fall into at night.
Some, unable to accept this loss,
unable to determine the worth of life without them,
jump into that black pit spiritually or physically,
hoping to find them there.
And some survive
the shock, the denial, the horror,
the bargaining, the barren, empty aching,
the unanswered prayers, the sleepless nights
when their breath is crushed under the weight of silence
and all that it means.
Somehow, some survive all that and,
like a flower opening after a storm,
they slowly begin to remember
the one they lost in a different way...
the irrepressible spirit,
the generous heart,
the way her smile made them feel.
And in time, they fill the pit
with other memories; the only memories that really matter.
We will still cry. We will always cry.
But with loving reflection more than hopeless longing.
On this one year anniversary that is how we survive.
That is how the story should end.
That is how she would want it to be.
Paige you are loved and missed so much in our lives. Until we meet again you will live forever in our hearts and be forever missed!!!"
"Let me be sad today,
give me this day to mourn
Yesterday was the date my niece died
and today the date she was born.
Let me think back to her birth,
or the fear of seeing her, dead.
Memories of holding her close,
and cradling her little head.
Allow me tears to cry,
Because love fills my heart today
Spilling it on those close by,
while in my memory forever she' ll stay."
"Today, thanksgiving day, I am thankful to have known such a beautiful soul. She is forever loved; forever missed."
"The day you left us was heartbreak and sorrow.
The day you left us we saw no tomorrow.
The day you left us we didn’t understand.
The day you left us God had you by the hand.
The day you left us your family came together.
The day you left us we remember you forever."
Have a suggestion for us?
