January 23, 2004

We will always remember

When we walk to the edge of all the light we have and take the step into the darkness of the unknown, we must believe that one of two things will happen. There will be something solid for us to stand on or we will be taught to fly.

On January 23, 2004 at 3:37pm...God blessed our family for the 4th time with the birth of our 4th child, our 3rd daughter, Margaret "Maggie" Dolores Anna. She was perfect in every way. The sight of her beautiful face was so calming and precious to us. We held onto her and felt her heart beating for what seemed an eternity. For us, it was our eternity with our beautiful Maggie. She came a bit too early for us to keep her with us here and at 5:39pm, after 2 hours and 2 minutes, God decided to take his angel home to be with him. The gift of the time that we were able to spend with her allowed us to show her our love & feel hers in return. The time was much too short, but those moments will live on in our hearts!

We know now that Maggie was brought into our lives to be a special Guardian Angel for our family. We feel her presence every day and are certain that she is watching over all of us.

For now, we will hold the miracle that is our Maggie in our hearts....until we meet again and can hold her in our arms!

We love you and we will never forget!

Fly Precious One

Fly, fly little wing
Fly beyond imagining
The softest cloud, the whitest dove
Upon the wind of heaven's love
Past the planets and the stars
Leave this lonely world of ours
Escape the sorrow and the pain
And fly again

Fly, fly precious one
Your endless journey has begun
Take your gentle happiness
Far too beautiful for this
Cross over to the other shore
There is peace forevermore
But hold this memory bittersweet
Until we meet

Fly, fly do not fear
Don't waste a breath, don't shed a tear
Your heart is pure, your soul is free
Be on your way, don't wait for me
Above the universe you will climb
On beyond the hands of time
The moon will rise, the sun will set
But I Will Not Forget

Fly, fly little wing
Fly where only angels sing
Fly away, the time is right
Go now, find the light
