In Loving Memory Of

September 22, 2001 - September 30,2004

But Jesus called them unto
him, and said, Suffer little
children to come unto me,
and forbid them not: for of
such is the kingdom of God.
Luke 18:16

We lost this little girl we loved,
and I had to wonder why?
I cried and said, "Oh tell me, Lord:
Why do babies have to die?

Her family's hearts are broken,
They hurt more than words can say;
And I just can't help but wonder
Why she had to go away."

Then Jesus softly whispered,
"Tell them I love her, too;
And I want the very best for her,
Just like I know they do.

She's safe within my loving arms,
This babe we love so dear;
She's playing happily again,
She knows no pain or fear;

Her body isn't paralyzed,
The tumor she had is gone;
She's living now in paradise,
And sings a brand new song.

She's running around in glory,
The heavens ring with her mirth.
Her life up here is perfect,
Like it never could be on earth.

Tell them she's waiting for them,
When they cross that golden shore;
She'll come running out to greet them,
And they'll live forevermore.

Tell them to have faith, and trust Me,
Though their hearts are full of pain;
For they'll see her again in heaven,
Where they'll never feel sadness again."

We'll never forget you,
sweet Cherokee.
