This would have been your 15th year as a Mother!

Schanae, I know that you are at peace; it helps so much to set my heart at ease. I loved you more than anyone could ever know, it hurt me so bad to have to let you go; but I know God knows what's best; that's why he put you my baby to rest.

It just doesn't seem fair for God to take you away, but he doesn't make mistakes. I try to find comfort in my grief, and it does help knowing you've found relief, because now you are free from all suffering and pain, so my great loss became your greatest gain. I know baby, you are safe in God's land above, where there is nothing but peace and love. I know that someday I will have to die; it makes me so happy, knowing you'll be waiting for me in the sky.

Jesus Loves You and So Do I
Love, Mom

Seven (7) years today has passed since you left us, seven (7) years of sadness and pain; seven (7) years of wishing we had the chance to bring us all back together again. I have always heard that time is a healer, and in time the pain becomes easier to bear; but for us the pain we feel in our hearts is still fresh as if it was yesterday.

My sweet daughter you’re up in heaven now, up there with your grandparents and your good friend Felix; up with other special angels as well, away from it all. When you left us, you left your ray of sunshine and that beautiful smile; you left a scare little boy, who you referred to as your number one Uno.   His name is James Camerin, a 15-year old young man now who has in his young life endured more than the average full-grown adult. Your face I saw in him every day, your charisma, intelligence, honesty, and integrity; a reminder of how special you were.

I think of you with love today, but that is nothing new; I thought about you yesterday and days before that too. I sat along and think of you in silence. Jeral and I often speak your name; now all we have is memories, and your pictures in frames.

Your memory is our keepsake, with which we’ll never part; God has you in his keeping, but we have you in our heart and always will.


Best Friends!

Schanae, you are so missed. I think of you all the time. I am so happy that I have good memories of you and I. We grew up together, went to school together, attended church together and had babies together. The list can go on. I miss you and the way you ALWAYS had my back. I was shy and soft spoken while you were straight to the point and ready to say whatever it was needed to be said. I will never forget how you would speak for me when I appeared to not be able to speak for myself. LOL. You were loyal and true to our friendship. My sisters and I adopted you into our family and called your our sister too. You were always there to help me with whatever I needed. You always generously gave of yourself and time to help me and whoever else needed help. People like you are rare to find. I could go on and on speaking of you and the many acts of kindness and love you have shown. However, on this day, I just want you and others to know that I miss you deeply and I will always cherish the friendship God gave me with you. You were a friend, sister, listening ear, problem solver, and great hangout buddy. I love you always!

When my baby sis home was being built I worked for Mastec

INC. They sub-contract for Gulf Power. IT WAS HER BROTHER who ran the under power feed to HER home. Bet you didn't know that MOMMY.
