"CAST YOUR PRAYERS"  / Johnette Moninger Angels-Madison F, Mary B, Colt P, Toby M, Joseph D (Friend)

Guardian Angel

When you're worried
about someone you care
for, cast your thoughts,
prayers, and wishes to their
Angel. Love them from a
distance, then move on
knowing they are in
good hands.

Thinking of Harley  / Lisa Church (Holly's Mom )
Just wanted to let you all know you are in my thoughts and prayers during this difficult time. God Bless.
Safely Home...  / Melissa Smith

I am Home in Heaven, dear ones; oh, so happy and so bright!
There is perfect joy and beauty in His everlasting light.
All the pain and grief is over, every restless tossing passed;
I am now at peace forever, safely Home in Heaven at last.
Did you wonder I so calmly trod the valley of the shade?
Oh! but Jesus' love illumined every dark and fearful glade.
And He came Himself to meet me in that way so hard to tread;
And with Jesus' arm to lean on, could I have one doubt or dread?
Then you must not grieve so sorely, for I love you dearly still;
Try to look beyond earth's shadows, pray to trust our Father's Will.
There is work still waiting for you, so you must not idly stand;
Do it now; while life remains ~You shall rest in Jesus' land.
When that work is all completed. He will gently call you Home;
Oh, the rapture of that meeting, oh, the joy to see you come!

Bereaved Parents Wish List

I wish my child hadn't died. I wish  I had her/him back


I wish you wouldn't be afraid to speak my child's name. My child
lived and was very important to me. I need to hear that she/he was
important to you also.


If I cry and get emotional when you talk about my child, I wish you
knew that it isn't because you have hurt me. My child's death is the
cause of my tears. You have talked about my child and you have
allowed me to share my grief. I thank you for both.


Being a bereaved parent is not contagious, so I wish you wouldn't
shy away from me. I need you now more than ever.


I need diversions, so I do want to hear about you, but I also want
you to hear about me. I might be sad and I might cry, but I wish you
would let me talk about my child; my favorite topic of the day.


I know that you think of and pray for me often. I also know that my
child's death pains you too. I wish you would let me know these
things through a phone call, a card or note, or a real big hug.


I wish you wouldn't expect my grief to be over. These first years
are traumatic for me, but I wish you could understand that my grief
will never be over. I will suffer the death of my child until the day
I die.


I am working hard in my recovery, but I wish you could understand
that I will never fully recover. I will always miss my child and I
will always grieve that she/he is gone.


I wish you wouldn't expect me "not to think about it" or "be
happy". Neither will happen for a very long time, so don't frustrate

I don't want to have a "Pity party", but I do wish you would let me
grieve. I must hurt before I can heal.


I wish you understood how my life has shattered. I know it is
miserable for you to be around me when I'm feeling miserable. Please
be as patient with me as I am with you.


When I say, "I'm doing okay", I wish you could understand that I
don't "feel" okay and that I struggle daily.


I wish you knew that all of the grief reactions I'm having are very
normal. Depression, anger, hopelessness and overwhelming sadness are all to be expected. So please excuse me when I'm quiet and withdrawn or irritable and cranky.


Your advice to "take it one day at a time" is excellent advice.
However, a day is too much and too fast for me right now. I wish you
could understand that I'm doing good to handle an hour at a time.


Please excuse me if I seem rude, certainly not my intent. Sometimes
the world around me goes too fast and I need to get off. When I walk
away, I wish you would let me find a quiet place to spend time alone.
I wish you understood that grief changes people. When my child died,
a big part of me died with her. I am not the same person I was
before my child died and I will never be that person again. 
I wish very much that you could understand ~ understand my loss and
my grief.
I pray daily that you will never understand.

Poem By Compassionate Friends

Dear friends In Grief...  / Melissa Smith

The spirit of the Sovereign Lord is on me,

Because the Lord has anointed me to

Preach good news to the poor.

He has sent me to bind up the broken-

hearted,… to comfort all who mourn,…

to bestow on them a crown of beauty

Instead of ashes, the oil of gladness

instead of mourning, and a garment of

Praise instead of a spirit of despair.

Isaiah 61: 1-3

God will heal our pain. He will heal you.

He will guide you as you reaffirm yourself

without your loved one in the new life

he has given you in Christ Jesus.

Dear friends, I am sorry for not visiting

Daily, as I have in the past. Please know

that I have not forgotten you or your loved

Ones. I am still having a lot of pain in my hands,

arms, and neck. I am to have surgery on my

Wrist March 13th. Maybe then I can type

again without my hands going numb.(wish it

was my heart that was numb) Again, please

know that you are always in my thoughts,

heart, and prayers. In Christian Love, Melissa.

Happy Valentine's Day  / Donna Hurth Sarah's Mom

A kiss from your angel  / Beth Dickerson (Jimmy's Mom )


We go through life so often,
not stopping to enjoy the day.
And we take each one for granted,
As we travel on our way.

For in your pain and sorrow,
An Angel's Kiss will help you through,
This Kiss is very private,
For it is meant for only you.

We never stop to measure,
Anything we just might miss.
If the wind should blow by softly,
You'll feel an Angel's Kiss.

A Kiss that's sent from heaven,
A Kiss from heaven above.
A Kiss that is very special,
From someone that you love.

So when, your hearts are heavy,
And filled with tears and pain,
And no one can console you,
Remember once again...

About the ones you grieve for,
Because you sadly miss.
The gentle breeze you took for granted
Was just an Angel's Kiss.


Thinking about you dear Harley.  / Valerie Haslett (wife of Ian )

"HAPPY VALENTINE'S DAY H"  / Johnette Moninger Angels:Madison F, Colt, Toby, &. Joseph. (Friend)

You are precious
and glorious
in God's sight.
May His love
be with you and your family
every day of the year.


Pennies From Heaven  / Brenda (Michael Holmes)


I found a penny today
Just lying on the ground
But it's not just a penny
This little coin I found.

Angels put them there
That's what I've always heard
They say angels toss them down
So you won't always wear a frown

They say when an angel misses you
They toss a penny down
Sometimes just to cheer you up
To make a smile out of your frown.

So don't pass by that penny
When you're feeling blue
It may be a penny from heaven
That your angel tossed to you.
