Calandra, my darling,

A wondrous thing happened to me, your grandmother! While I was watering the lovely, bright, purple bougainvillea in the backyard, a beautiful, little gray and green iridescent hummingbird appeared. Being unencumbered by my presence, he hovered near the stream of water from the gardening hose, his wings beating rapidly. I, naturally, thought that he wanted to quench his thirst. However, he did not, for he quickly flew away. Shortly, he reappeared, and, as before, he hovered near the stream of water for awhile. He then took flight to places unknown. At that moment a beautiful thought and question came to mind. Calandra, my darling, did you send that beautiful, whimsical hummingbird my way, knowing that he would bring not one, but two, big smiles to my face? If you did so, thank you, my darling! Please keep sending little hummingbirds my way! They give me great delight and put a smile on my face, for their great beauty reminds me of you, my darling!

Calandra, my beautiful Angel,

Here it is, another Easter without you, again! My heart still aches over your great loss! I am so very lonely here without you! There is a tremendous void in my life that will never be filled!

The following poem expresses my exact, heart-felt sentiments about you:

Today it would be wonderful to see you play and smile,
But heaven lent you to this world for just a little while.
In that short but precious time you brought along much love,
And all that love is with you now in heaven up above.

Your leaving caused so many tears and such a lot of pain,
But God needed one more angel, so He took you back again.

~Author Unknown~

Calandra, my beautiful Angel,

I thank God for allowing me the short, precious time I had with you here on earth!
Heaven is now even more beautiful with your sweet, wonderful, angelic presence there!

Easter hugs and kisses to you and all our loved ones in heaven! I LOVE & MISS YOU!

Calandra, darling,

Please give your great-grandmother, my mother, this note, along with a kiss and your most, enchanting smile. Thank you, darling!

My dearest mother,

As I think back, three years ago tonight, tears fill my eyes and emptiness fills my heart! I find comfort in knowing that God released you from your earth-bound shackels that night! He took you to be with Him in Paradise where you would forever be pain-free and happy! At the same time, I feel such a tremendous loss over your death! There has been an ever-increasing void in my life since your death! Time has past quickly, but my grief has not!


Even with you gone, I have never outgrown my love and need for you! There have been so very many times when I have needed your advice, strength, comfort and loving arms! I know that you would be happy and proud to know that since your great loss, I have been able to persevere through many of life's painful and difficult adversities. I was able to do so because of my abiding faith in God. Praise be to Him!

Mother you may be gone, but you will never be forgotten! Your beautiful, precious memories are mine forever!

The gates of memory will never close,
I miss you more than anyone knows,
With tender love and deep regret,
I, who love you, will never forget.

Mother, I love and miss you!

Your grateful daughter,

Calandra, darling, I love and miss you, also! Hugs and kisses!

Calandra, sweetheart,

On this day of love my thoughts are of you! You were such a precious gift from God! You had a heart so full of love and such a beautiful, joyful spirit! You may be gone, but your love remains in my heart forever!

I would like to envision Valentine's Day in Heaven to be as the following poem portrays, with you, my beautiful angel, gathering and releasing all the love I have sent to you!


Valentine's Day in Heaven,

A spectacular site to see.

Angels spreading Heavenly love,

As quickly as can be.

All the love we send to them,

Up in Heaven above.

Is gathered all together

And released on this day of love.

Valentine hugs and kisses to you, sweetheart! I LOVE AND MISS YOU!

My heart goes out to you in the most profound way. There is a song that I love that Michael Jackson wrote for a young man Ryan White...."Gone Too Soon" May you find comfort in knowing that Calandra is in God's Loving care, God Bless you Alicia
