TO WHERE YOU ARE -  Josh Groban

Who can say for certain 
Maybe you're still here
I feel you all around me
Your memories so clear.    

Deep in the stillness
I can hear you speak
You're still an inspiration. 
Can it be that you are my forever love
And you are watching over me from above?

Fly me up to where you are
Beyond the distant star
I Wish upon tonight to see you smile
If only for a while,   to know you're there
A breath away's not far to where you are

Are you gently sleeping here inside my dream?
And isn't faith believing All Power can be seen?

As my heart holds you just one beat away
I cherish all you gave me everyday
'cause you are my forever love
Watching me from up above
And I believe that Angels breathe
And that Love will live on and never leave

Fly me up to where you are
Beyond the distant star
I Wish upon tonight to see you smile
If only for a while,   to know you're there
A breath away's not far to where you are


When I was shopping for an Angel to place at your memorial service. I dropped my car keys on the floor and bent over to pick them up.  For whatever reason, I glanced under the bottom shelf and My heart literally skipped a beat when I saw this Angel tucked away in the back.. but then I knew, 
it was you who pointed it out to your baby sister!

Having you for a sister is undoubtedly one of the best things that ever happened to me.  Who but you could be as Serious or as silly as I want to be?  

You not only tolerate my actions, you Understand them!

 When I realize how much your influence has helped me shape my life, I'm Grateful you're the kind of person you are. 

You've been, and you still are, a MAJOR part of my happiness.

I think that says a lot about the special relationship we have.

They say that friends come and go, but a SISTER is FOREVER. 

 And I say thank heaven for you.

(from Hallmark card by Kay Andrew)

I Know You by Heart - Eva Cassidy

midnights in winter
the glowing fire
lights up your face in orange and gold

I see your sweet smile
shine thru the darkness
it's line is etched in my memory
so I'd know you by heart

mornings in April 
sharing the secrets
we'd walk until the morning was gone

we were like children
laughing for hours
the joy you gave me lives on and on
' cause I know you by heart

I still hear your voice
on warm summer nights
whispering like the wind

you left in autumn 
the leaves were turning
I walked down roads of
orange and gold

I saw your sweet smile
I heard your laughter
you're still here
beside me everyday
cause I know you by heart
cause I know you by heart


"My Sister"

Like the dawning of a new day

I open my arms to embrace the warm loving spirit that I've

Never known from any other in my lifetime.

Days will come and go, but you will

Always and forever live in our hearts, thoughts and memories.

Please watch over us as we go about our journey on earth.

Every moment know that we long to be near you.

Realize that even in our pain and sorrow, we will forever  

Remember all the love and care you freely gave, and we will carry  

Your spirit deep in our hearts ~  until we are with you again.

                                                 We LOVE you so very much 

                            your little sister, Shay 

We placed this ANGEL in your Garden to remember you everyday
