My condolences to you and your family on the loss of your

Angel Elizabeth.  It is not easy to deal with the death of a child

in fact it's horrible and the worst thing that can happen to a parent.

You are not alone dear one there are so many of us.  My

prayers and blessings to you.

Happy Birthday!  / Moma

Meagan,

Well, today has finally arried, you're 21st birthday! I sit here and wonder what you are doing on this day and wish I could just see you, if only for a minute.  Today was truly the happiest day of my life 21 years ago because you entered into it.  I sit and remember just how you looked the first time I saw you, you were so beautiful with that black head of hair and those beautiful blue eyes, I felt as though everything in the world was perfect, because you were so perfect.  I know today should be a day of celebration but honestly I find myself struggling to get through it.  I have to wonder if I would be planning a wedding right now for you or what you would have been doing today.  Know that I love you Meagan and I miss you each and every day.  I can't tell you what I would give for one more chance to look into your eyes and tell you to your face how special you are to me.  I love you.  I made you a vase of flowers for your birthday that I will go and place on your grave today, I hope they meet your approval.  I think you would have liked the teapot that they are in, when I saw it I thought of you and how much you liked the Mad Hatter's tea party on Alice in Wonderland.

All My Love Baby!

Hey Baby,

It's been a while since I last wrote to you, looking at your beautiful pictures here and thinking of and missing you more and more with each passing day.  I look at your pictures and I remember each and every single day that each was made, every frown on your face, every single action you had that day.  God I want you back!  I miss you so much Meagan that somedays I think that the best solution for me is to take my own life to where I can be with you, although that would cause so much pain and heartache here on earth to others and I don't want anyone to ever have to go through what I have had to deal with. People have told me that time will help ease the pain but so far, no luck, I don't think that time will ever help ease the heartbreak I feel for you every single minute of each and every day that passes.  It sems like it has been so long since I saw you and yet it seems like it was just yesterday.  I still ask daily, Why God, why did you take her from me, but still there are no answers.  Keep watch over me and Daddy and I will see you again someday!

All My Love,

Moma

Happy 20th Birthday!  / Mother (Mother)

Meagan,

I made it through! Yesterday was your 20th birthday and boy did I have a hard time getting through the day.  I just kept thinking what you would be doing to celebrate and where you would spend your day.  Knowing you, you would have probably been at the beach or somewhere like that.  I really didn't know what to do to celebrate your birthday, but as you know, I made you a new floral arrangement and let 20 balloons go into the heavens above at your gravesite.  The printed pink Happy Birthday balloon just kept going and going, it was if you were reaching down and grabbing it.  Although this is not the way I expected to celebrate your birthday, I am glad that I was able to still celebrate with you.  As I have said so many times before, this is not the way that it was supposed to be, I just can't believe this was a part of the plan.  Know that I love you with all my heart baby and that I will do whatever it takes to keep your memory alive and with me always.  I miss you more with each and every passing day!

All my love sweetheart,

Moma

It's Me Again...  / Mother (Moma)

Meagan,

Today is Kaci's 12th birthday and God how I wish you were here to celebrate it with her.  Sunday is Mother's Day and it will be my first Mother's Day without you.  Your Daddy asked me what I wanted for Mother's Day and I told him nothing, that I was no longer a mother.  I suppose that is the wrong way to view it, but that's how I feel.  Grandaddy's birthday will be the 22nd and he will be 85. of course I know that you already know that and that you will be there for him.  I know I have said time and time again that people keep telliing me that time will help heal the pain that I feel, but I just don't think there will ever be any amount of time that will help heal my broken heart.  I read some poems the other day that a mother had written for her 21 year old daughter who was killed by a Drunk Driver and all I could think about was how could she put into words exactly how I feel.  I guess all of the mothers who have lost a child probably have the same feelings of despair and emptiness.  I wanted to share this poem with you so I am going to post it, although I know that you will never get to read it, maybe it is a way to help me along this long journey where there is no light at the end of the tunnel.  Just know that I miss you with each and every passing day and I think of you constantly.  It is especially hard during this time of year because I know that you would already be wanting us to go to the beach.  I love you Meagan and I will forever keep you in my heart.

My Broken Heart
It broke my heart to lose you,
But you did not go alone
Part of me went with you,
the day God called you home.
A million times I've thought of you
A million times I've cried
If my love could have saved you
You never would have died
Forgive me Lord, I'll always weep
For the daughter I loved
but could not keep

All My Love,

Moma

Three months  / Moma
Today marks 3 months since you left our lives.  I know that I haven't written you as much as I should have but I think you know that I have been trying to stay busy lately.  Meagan, I have realized that there is more to life than material goods; losing you taught me that and so much more.  I now realize that life can be taken away in an instant and there is nothing that anyone can do to prevent it.  You know, I still keep searching each and every day for an answer to the question "Why?" but there is no answer.  I feel so cheated that you were taken from me; it just seems so unfair.  I wish that I could have seen you one last time and had the opportunity to have said goodbye.  I think that for me that is still the hardest part, not having that closure, so to speak.  Jeffrey is fine, or so he says.  The memorial company finally finished the gravesite and it is absolutely beautiful, I will be spending more time there now, just sitting and talking with you.  Meagan just know that the love does live on and I will do everything in my power to make sure that your memory lives on.  A member of the childloss group that I talk with wrote this for us about a week ago and I wanted to place it here so people could read it, it's called "Remember Me."

Remember me for once I was alive

Long ago when we walked side by side

The smile the laughter the fun we had

Should be the time to remember and be glad

For we live our life the best we knew

We had no intentions of leaving you

Now I am gone I am not there

Even though you look everywhere

You will never forget the times that we shared

With our love so strong nothing compared

If only I could show you where I have went

Not pain no sickness just heaven sent

You do not understand nor will you know why

But God called me home to his place in the sky

The beauty and love with his angels in place

Would wipe away all those tears on your face

Then you would know that I am now free

That is the only way to remember me.

Meagan,
Today is Christmas and i am missing you terribly.  We had Christmas here at the house with everyone and it seemed to help in a special way.  We lit a candle for you and burned it while we shared Christmas together as a family.  It is so hard to let you go but I know that you are celebrating the birth of Christ with Jesus himself today.  I know that God and Jesus are watching over you and that you are my special angel watching over me.  I miss you Meagan, your smiles, your laughter and your love.  I made it through Christmas this year; you told me that I would just to be strong.  I think that you were probably watching from heaven with that beautiful smile on your face.  I love you and I miss you more than words can say, I just have to keep reminding myself to breathe everyday and know that you would want me to continue forth.

All my love my darling,
Moma

Meagan,
I just wanted to talk with you for a little while and let you know that I am finally beginning to understand a little better than I have.  Remember how I used to buy you those porcelain dolls every Christmas? Well, today I found a beautiful porcelain doll, dressed in pink, with angel wings and she is part of the Elizabeth collection.  She has blue eyes and brown hair so I bought her for you.  Meagan, it is still very hard to let go of you, but I know now that the pain and suffering you would have gone through had you survived would have been more than either of us could have beared.  I realized today that you have done something that I can only dream of...you have seen heaven and have looked into God's and Jesus's faces.  I know that you are all aglow and I have finally come to understand that I too one day will be as blessed as you.  Just know that I will love you now and forever and will keep you in my heart always.  I love you pumpkin!

Another letter from Moma  / Sheryl Elmore (meagan)
Meagan,
Another day comes and goes and yet you're still not here.  I wait patiently each day hoping to see you come through the door or simply get a call saying "Hey Moma, what cha doin?"  I know that those days are gone but still there is the want for it to happen again.  It is comforting to me to be able to sit and write to you although I know you will never read these entries; I guess it helps ease my pain and heartache feeling that I am communicating with you if only through words on a piece of paper.  Meagan, Christmas is fast approaching and I don't know how I'm going to be able to handle it this year.  I know you asked me in September if we were going to put up the Christmas tree the day after Thanksgiving and I told you maybe....well I still have not been able to bring myself to put it up...but I will because I know Christmas was one of your very favorite holidays.  Meagan, know that I love you today as always.  You know, I took so many things for granted while I had you and now I see things that I could've and should've done differently while you were here.  You are in my every thought and prayer each and every day and I know that I was blessed to have you to share a part of my life with.  I read this poem today and I thought I would send it to you because it summarizes just how I feel right now.  I miss you!

Christmas Without You 

This year as December is finally here
And the holiday spirit is about to appear 

The bustle of shopping for gifts under the tree
But for me it seems so barren and empty

The stores all packed with shoppers everyday
Getting their gifts and going on their way

Yet there are some people like your Dad and me
Have difficulties with Christmas and even a tree

For we no longer feel we want to shop like we used to do
Because life no longer matters spending Christmas without you

Many years we were happy and full of glee
As we watched your smile when you seen the tree

We remember those days long ago and think why
As our hearts and our eyes begin to stumble and cry

Wishing again that you would walk through the door
But this Christmas without you breaks  our heart once more

Yet deep inside our hearts are breaking in two
But  we must be strong for our family its true

They still don’t realize the grief and the pain
Because Christmas without you will never be the same.

My darling Meagan,
My heart breaks every single minute of every single day for you.  I think of how I'll never be able to see your beautiful face again and hold you to my heart and it feels as though my heart rips from my chest over and over.  I want you to know that my life will never be the same again without you in it to bring joy and happiness.  I know that we didn't always see eye to eye on things, but please understand that as a Mother, I was always trying to do what was in your best interest.  They say "life goes on"; at this point, I don't know how, I can only pray that God can ease the pain and that one day, I will be with you again!  Until then, I ask that you keep watch over me my love.  Know that I loved you more than words can say.  Meagan, it's like a dream that I can't wake up from, I just don't understand why you're not here.  I love you my Angel, now and forever and I promise you that I will see you in Heaven some sweet day.

Forever my love,
Moma  Close
