I was a baby-sitter for your son & daughter back when they were in elementary school. The very strange irony for me is always how we are drawn back to things and often do not get the answer as to why...My husband & I were house-hunting this winter and yours was a home we viewed. I walked in and said to my husband "Oh my God! I used to babysit these children!" While admiring the fireplace I had never noticed as a teen, I couldn't help but stare at two beautiful young adults in portraits. I remarked " I watched TV with these kids, read them stories and tucked them in...they look so solid and intelligent, so good-looking too." My spouse of course could not relate but it gave me such a positive sense of nostalgia to be in that home. Walking through the rooms I remembered two happy kids, comfortable in their own skin - just like their parents. We passed on making an offer, much to my dismay. A few weeks later the tradgedy unfolded. I heard the name and town on the radio. I said "2002" graduate of LHS, he was too young for me to know him. Then a few days later I began to make the connections. On my way to our new home, in Lincoln, I drove buy the services at St. Judes. I saw TV cameras and photographers outside. I saw a picture with a name during the CMT awards on channel 12. Sometimes you never get to know that you've touched a life. Daniel is touching mine. I keep reflecting on why. So far, I have come up with this. I have two beautiful children of my own. I stress over the little things sometimes. I need to slow down and take time for the little smiles and bedtime stories and tucking in. Life is always too short. Sometimes it's even shorter and we don't get to decide that. I will spend my time and that of my children wisely and gently whenever I can. My heart goes out to his sister, Mom, & Dad. From a teenage baby-sitter's rememberance - you are a wonderful family so undeserving of this horror and grief. I pray for Daniel and you all. With lots of love, Amanda from Beauregard Ave.

Our prayers to the family and friends of Daniel O'neil. His talents were so amazing and we have shared many of his songs with friends. He was truly a talented guitar player. We love to listen to Baby it's cold outside. Going to his website has made us feel close to Daniel like he was a friend. I think about him and his talents all the time. I know that I'm speaking for many when I say that this tragedy has brought tears to our eyes. He will be forever in our thoughts.

Do not stand at my grave and weep.
I am not there, I do not sleep.
I am the sparkle in the snow.
I am the shredded leaves that blow.
I am the sunlight on growing grain.
I am the gentle summer rain.
I am the quiet bird at night.
Circling about; Taking flight.
So do not stand at my grave and weep.
I am not there, I do not sleep.

RISE UP SLOWLY, ANGEL

Rise up, slowly, Angel.
I cannot let you go.
Just drift softly midst the faces,
In sorrow now bent low.

Ease the searing anger,
Born in harsh unyielding truth
That Death could steal my loved one
From the glowing blush of youth.

Rise up slowly, Angel.
Do not leave me here alone,
Where the warmth of mortal essence
Lies replaced by cold, hard stone.

Speak to me in breezes
Whispered through the drying leaves,
And caress my brow with raindrops
Filtered by the sheltering trees.

Rise up slowly, Angel,
For I cannot hear the song
Which calls you through the shadows
Into the light beyond.

Wrap me in your downy cape
Of sunshine, warm with love,
And kiss a tear-stained mother's face
With moonlight from above.

Then wait for me at sunset,
Beside the lily pond,
And guide me safely homeward
To your world,which lies beyond.

Just spread your wings and take me
In reunion’s sweet embrace,
And we shall soar, together,
To a different time and place.
