Calandra, my darling,

Four, blue Christmases have come and gone without you!

The following poem expresses my same, exact sentiments!

Missing You At Christmastime

The sadness never goes away
the silent tears still flow,
You're thought of and so sadly missed
more than you'll ever know.
But now you're with the Angels
safe and sound in Heaven above,
I hold on to the memories
and treasure them with love.
Yet special times like Christmas
often make me wonder why,
God took you from this world
it was too soon to say goodbye.
But memories are precious
they will last a lifetime through,
I know that God has chosen you
to be His Angel too.

Calandra, my darling Christmas Angel,

A most blessed Christmas to you
and all our heavenly loved ones!

Hugs and kisses!

Calandra, my darling,

Would you please deliver this message to my parents, your great-grandparents, today on what would have been their earthly, mutual birthdays. Also, please give them both a big hug and kiss from me. Thank you, my darling!

Mom and Dad, so very often I look to the heavens above and long for you both! My life is so very incomplete without both your love, guidance and encouragement. I will never outgrow my continuous, great need for you both!

The following poem expresses my most sincere sentiments and best wishes to you both today on your mutual, heavenly birthdays.

Birthday Wishes To Heaven, With Love

Though I miss you both always
Each and every day
It seems to hit me even more
Because it is both your mutual birthdays

I send you both wishes to Heaven
Carried to you both upon a prayer
To the place where you both are now
With sweet, tender love and care
~Author unknown~

Mom and Dad, a most heavenly, happy birthday to you both! I love and miss you!

Your forever,grateful daughter,

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

Calandra, my precious angel,

Today marks three years since God took you home to be with Him!
The following poem expresses my same, exact sentiments over your great loss!

As I Look Up To The Skies Above

As I look up to the skies above,
The stars stretch endlessly--
But somehow all those rays of light
Seem dimmer now to me.
As I watch the morning sun appear,
The shadows still don't fade--
As if the brightest light of all
Was somehow swept away.

Though I see the branches swaying,
And watch their dancing leaves--
The echoes carried on the wind
Don't sound the same to me.
As I listen to the morning birds
Sing softly from afar--
It seems to be a mournful tune
That echoes in my heart.

Another day has come again,
As time moves surely on--
But nothing now seems quite the same,
To know that you are gone.
The days and weeks and months ahead
Will never be the same--
Because a treasure beyond words
Can never be replaced.

The loss cannot be measured now,
The void cannot be filled--
And though someday the grief may fade,
Your mark will live on still.
For even with my heavy heart,
I know that I've been blessed
To have been one who's life you touched
With love and warmth so infinite.

Calandra, my precious angel, my life, my world, will never be the same without you! I love and miss you so very much! Heavenly hugs and kisses!

Dearest Mom and Dad,
~June 26, 1947~

Happy fourth (4th) wedding anniversary in heaven!

I have always had so much love and admiration for you both, my beloved parents, and for the strong, loving relationship you had with one another! Your marriage was a living blueprint of how to succeed in having a long, happy, loving marriage. You both were a great inspiration to everyone, especially me! You were my role models, whose marriage was everything that I wanted my own marriage to be like, also!

Mom and Dad, I saw your love for one another grow with each passing year, in spite of all the many adversities that you both had to overcome. You both persevered through them, with your love growing even stronger! You both had a deep and abiding faith and trust in one another!

You both were soul mates! It was as if your hearts beat as one! Even now I cannot think of one of you, without thinking of you both together. Your happiest times were when you were with one another and family!

Mom and Dad, you had a marriage made in heaven on earth, and it is so very appropriate that you both are now celebrating your fourth wedding anniversary (marriage) together in heaven!

A very blessed, happy, heavenly 4th wedding anniversary to you both!

I love and miss you both! Please give Calandra a big hug and kiss from me, and tell her that I love and miss her, too!

Your loving daughter,

Calandra, my heavenly messenger,

Please give the following Mother's Day message to your great-grandmother, my mother, along with your lovely smile, hug and kiss. Thank you, my darling!

My fourth Mother's Day without you!

This poem is for you, my beloved Mother:

Dear Mother in heaven,
I just wanted you to know
How much I miss you everyday
And how much I love you so.

I cannot send you a card,
But I can send you my love
Upon the wings of angels
To heaven up above.

I wish you a Happy Mother's Day
For you were the very best.
To have had you for my Mother
I knew I had been specially blessed.

Rest in peace my angel Mother,
One day we will be together.
The next time that I see you
I know that it will be forever.

Mother, with each passing year I love and miss you more!

My forever gratitude,
Your daughter, Donna

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