Days End    
In The coolness of the evening...
When the sun is going down,
The shadows of the stately trees...
Are long upon the ground.
A gentle breeze comes blowing.
Blue skies begin to gray,
Sunset's rays are glowing
All mark the end of day.
The birds have ceased their singing,
And seek their nightly place,
The stars begin appearing...
And fill the darkening space.
The toils of this day are over.
Now is the time for rest...
With comfort in the knowledge
That I have done my best.
The dawn will come tomorrow,
And bring a brighter day,
And all the disappointments
Should surely pass away.
The noon-day sun, high in the sky...
Will warm my heart and soul,
And be a source of strength...
To help me reach my goal.
When the day is finished...
And the sun sets in the west,
I can say within my heart...
"Today, I did my best!"

In Loving Memory of All Our Angels


 Someone once said, silence is golden

 They have never experienced the loss of a child

 Silence to a grieving parent is not golden

 It's become an enemy to us who grieve

 We call out for just one sound from our child

 The silence only deepens our grief

 We plea and bargain to hear our child just once more

 Just to hear a hi mom or hey dad

 We ask for nothing more

 Silence steals what we most want to hear

Any sound made by our child's voice

 Letting us know they are near

 Yes silence may be golden to some

 To a grieving parent it is not

 Only because we miss our loved one

" Each day passing does not take me farther from my child: Each day  passing only brings me one day closer to my child"....Doyle Alldredge


In my Fathers house are many mansions; if it were not so I would have told you.I go to prepare a place for you. And if I go and prepare a place for you I will come again, and receive you unto myself, that where I am you may be also."-John 14:2-3



There is nothing to compare
to the miracle of birth
Few words to share
that will equal it's worth.

In the twinkle of an eye
a new life is formed.
And for a lifetime
a mother's heart is warmed.

In your beginning
a dream coming true.
Open arms awaiting
a miracle such as you.
