~Thanksgiving Day~

Calandra, my precious angel,

Today I give thanks unto God for my many blessings, those past and present! I greatly thank Him for the wonderful blessings of my family members, relatives and friends, earthly and heavenly! My beautiful granddaughter, I especially thank God for having blessed my life with your sweet, amazing presence! Your life was far too short, and my heart will forever ache knowing that I will have to live out my entire, earthly existence without you!

Calandra, my precious angel, please always know that, although you are now one of God's little angels, I will always love you now and forever!

Hugs and Kisses!

Calandra, my beautiful angel,

It has been four years today since your precious, earthly life came to a tragic end! I have felt such sadness and heartache each day since your great loss! Every year the pain greatly intensifies as the anniversary of your death approaches! My anxiety and depression increases, as I relive all the many, painful events preceeding and following your death! The devastating news of your most tragic and untimely death was unbearable! I cannot erase from my mind the many, haunting memories of that fateful day! I cannot fight back the tears when I recall all the terrible circumstances which led to your needless and senseless death!

Calandra, my most beautiful angel, it breaks my heart to think of all the hateful words you heard and the terrible things you witnessed on that fateful day! I can only imagine how very confused and fearful you were as the "monster" sped you to your death! I hope and pray that God took you before you experienced and suffered the terrible, excruciating pain from all your many, extensive injuries! I will never be at peace with the horrific way you died! No child should ever suffer such confusion, agony and pain as you endured on the last day of your life!

Calandra, my beautiful angel, I am so very lonely without you! I have found it so very hard to live my life without your wonderful presence! You were an amazingly sweet and loving granddaughter who was such a joyful blessing to me! I will never be able to fill the great void, the emptiness that is ever present in my heart since your great loss!

Calandra, my beautiful angel, I will keep your beautiful memory alive as long as God gives me clarity of mind! I long for the day when I, again, will see your lovely face! Only then will the pain disappear! What a glorious day that will be!

My precious Calandra,

Would you please give the following Mother's Day poem to your sweet great-grandmother, my mother, along with a hug and kiss from me? Thank you, precious!

For my lovely Mom on Mother's Day:

I'd love for you to be with me,
On this special day.
You know how much
I've missed you,
Since you went away.
But you're forever with me
In everything I do,
And all my happiest moments
Bring memories of you.
And when my heart is heavy
With the pain of saying goodbye,
I lift my eyes to heaven,
And your smile lights up the sky.

~Author Unknown~

Mom, this poem conveys my exact sentiments! I love and miss you so very much!
You were the dearest and best!

Your most grateful daughter,

Calandra, precious,

Today is a special day of beautiful remembrance of you, also! I fondly remember all the many times you called me 'mom'! I will always cherish those moments! Thank you, precious, for having bestowed such a great honor on me! My heart shall always be broken knowing that, in your short years on earth, you never had the blessing of a full-time, loving mother! I was your grandma and surrogate 'mom,' but you deserved so much more!!
