AMELIA GRACE SPERRY
AMELIA GRACE SPERRY SOUTH BURLINGTON - Amelia Grace Sperry was born in Burlington on May 27, 2004, the daughter of Karen and Tyler Sperry. She attended Footprints Preschool and the Orchard School. She was a kindergarten student in Mr. Pecor's class. Amelia lived such a full life in her few short years with us. Life was a gift she did not waste. She loved being outdoors - swimming, sledding, skiing, playing t-ball, just running around with her five cousins and little friends. She especially loved to ride her bike. After dinner or on rainy days, she would concentrate on her latest craft project, draw and paint, and dress up as a fairy. She cooked and baked with her parents and believed in magic and Santa Claus. She was learning to read and write and was already a math whiz. She had bright blue eyes, the longest lashes, the sweetest smile and was so very tall for her age. Her favorite colors were pink and purple (with lots of sparkles). She seems so fragile now, but she certainly wasn't. She always saw the humor in life's silly moments - she was full of giggles and even a little mischief. She made us remember what it is like to be young and excited about discovering new things. Her spirit will always be with us - as we take a turn on the slopes of Bolton Valley, dive into Lake Champlain (with swim goggles, of course), slip down a steep water slide, paint our nails, play the piano, bake a pizza, throw a frisbee, go for a boat ride, read Winnie The Pooh, skip rope with our friends, pick blueberries and apples, and ride our bikes down the lovely roads of Vermont- where she was born and gave us so much joy, laughter and love. Amelia is survived by her loving parents, Karen and Tyler Sperry of South Burlington; her grandparents, Susan and Mark Sperry of South Burlington, and Erica Lindemann of Steamboat Springs, Colo.; her Aunt Abigail Sperry and her husband, Alejandro Torrens, and their children, Sasha and Gabriela of Shelburne; her Aunt Julia Sperry and her husband, James Sandberg, of South Burlington; her Uncle Mark Lindemann of Park City, Utah; and her Uncle Dwight Sperry and his wife, Marieke, and their children, Rose, Violet, and Oliver of Norwich. She was predeceased by her grandfather, Klaus Lindemann. A memorial service will be held Saturday, May 29 at 1 p.m. at the Unitarian Universalist Church at the top of Church Street. All are welcome to attend. Contributions may be made in memory of Amelia to the Orchard Community Helpers at the Orchard School, 2 Baldwin Avenue, South Burlington, VT 05403. Arrangements are in the care of the Ready Funeral & Cremation Service, Burlington. To send online condolences to the family please visit www.readyfuneral.com

Dear Karen,

I've just learned of Amelia's accident and of your loss. I'm so sorry for the heart ache you are going through. My heart breaks for both you and Tyler. My tears flow from sadness as I think of your tragic loss, but I can't help but feel a bittersweet gratitude of heart toward God when I consider how He was pleased to give you the job of caring for His spunky and sweet little loving Amelia for the fullness of the season of her life.
Psalm 139:16-17 says "You watched me as I was being formed in utter seclusion, as I was woven together in my mothers womb, You saw me before I was born, Every day of my life was recorded in your book. Every moment was laid out before a single day had passed. How precious are your thoughts about me, O God! They are innumerable!

Karen, I don't believe that we are promised any particular number of days for our lives but it seems to me that God knows the number of all of our days. I pray that He will comfort you through your memories of enjoying Amelia and through the love of your family and friends. I pray that you will feel comfort in knowing that you gave her the best of your love and warmth and that she knew that she was the joy of your lives. I pray that you will hold on tight to each other and comfort one another with lot's of warm hugs while you think of your baby.

Dear Tyler and Karen,
Danyelle and I attended Amelia's memorial service with you on Saturday, and I must say, several things in our lives will never be quite the same. Every part of the service had tremendous effect on us, for me especially, "Simple Gifts." When you greeted us afterwords, we were both nearly speechless; I believe all we could utter was "we're so sorry..."
We have not stopped thinking of you...you are in our hearts and prayers. Thanks for sharing this beautiful memorial with us.

Karen and Tyler,
Amelia will be so missed in our neighborhood. She was a bright light in our everyday lives. I will forever see Amelia climbing in our apple tree, helping in the garden where she was always so eager to help, drawing chalk flowers on the sidewalk, climbing in the snow, shivering in her wet bathing suit and a towel with a grin from ear to ear, and running so joyously in the yard, and sitting on the steps sharing popsicles. I will always remember her sweet little voice asking questions, always so inquisitive, the laughter, the silly things that made us all smile, and just last week she greeted me from her bedroom window when I got home from work and after she had been put to bed with a quiet, slightly mischievous, little "Hi Lanny." I will always remember the happiness that she brought to your faces. Her joyous spirit lives on in our hearts and minds. And when the tears fade, we will honor her by trying to live our lives with joy and happiness, just as she did every day of her life.

In one of them I shall be laughing
And so it will be as if all the stars were laughing when you look at night"

Dear Karen and Tyler,
Know that every time you feel the warmth of the sun's rays, you smell a fragrant flower, you taste an ice cream, you observe a butterfly flutter by, you see the stars twinkle at night,
Amelia is reminding you that she is always with you. May you seek solace in the wonderful memories of your beautiful girl.

To my dearest family, some things I'd like to say...
but first of all, to let you know, that I arrived okay.
I'm writing this from heaven. Here I dwell with God above.
Here, there's no more tears of sadness; here is just eternal love.

Please do not be unhappy just because I'm out of sight.
Remember that I'm with you every morning, noon and night.
That day I had to leave you when my life on earth was through,
God picked me up and hugged me and He said, "I welcome you."

It's good to have you back again; you were missed while you were gone.
As for your dearest family, they'll be here later on.
I need you here badly; you're part of my plan.
There's so much that we have to do, to help our mortal man.

God gave me a list of things, that he wished for me to do.
And foremost on the list, was to watch and care for you.
And when you lie in bed at night, the day's chores put to flight.
God and I are closest to you....in the middle of the night.

When you think of my life on earth, and all those loving years
because you are only human, they are bound to bring you tears.
But do not be afraid to cry; it does relieve the pain.
Remember there would be no flowers, unless there was some rain.

I wish that I could tell you all that God has planned.
But if I were to tell you, you wouldn't understand.
But one thing is for certain, though my life on earth is o'er.
I'm closer to you now, than I ever was before.

There are many rocky roads ahead of you and many hills to climb;
but together we can do it by taking one day at a time.
It was always my philosophy and I'd like it for you too...
that as you give unto the world, the world will give to you.

If you can help somebody who's in sorrow and pain,
then you can say to God at night......"My day was not in vain."
And now I am contented....that my life has been worthwhile,
knowing as I passed along the way, I made somebody smile.

So if you meet somebody who is sad and feeling low,
just lend a hand to pick him up, as on your way you go.
When you're walking down the street, and you've got me on your mind;
I'm walking in your footsteps only half a step behind.

And when it's time for you to go.... from that body to be free,
remember you're not going.....you're coming here to me.

Dear Karen & Tyler,

As so many other people whose messages we have read, my husband and I did not have the pleasure and honor of knowing your precious Amelia. Our 2nd grade daughter Jenniah did, though. They played together sometimes at recess and Jenniah tells us that Amelia was a funny, happy and energetic young lady who always beat her to the swings!

We hold you all in our hearts and please know that even though we have never met, our love and support is very real. We will never forget that beautiful, smiling face.

Dear Karen and Tyler (Mom and Dad),

Thank you for bringing such an incredible human being to this world. I did not know Amelia personally, but indirectly through the joy of dolls- American Girl Dolls- second generation! My daughter had enjoyed them so from her grandmother, godmother and aunts. My daughter Emily was a first and had so many of these dolls that at a sale at our home Grandma Susan Sperry said "Why yes I am looking for some American Girl Dolls" one day. and My 11yr old son said "yes we have them." The rest is terrific history but we got a chance to learn about these incredible grandchildren and one who sparkled bigger than all -named Amelia! - lots of love and hugs- the Grippos So. Burlington

Her time with us was short, but the love you put in her heart she obviously spread to all she met. Our hearts & prayers are with you!

What words can describe how we all must feel at this time! Amelia with a bright smile though may not be here in body will remain here in spirit. God will take good care of her and will keep her close until we get to be there with her. Her bright smile lights up a room and rainbows shine bright. She brought love to all those who loved her and to all those who didn't even know her. Keep her loving spirit with you always. Look and listen she is still there. God will take good care of her and will be there for you also. God bless you both as we all stand with you during this difficult time. Look to the heavens because Ameila will never be far away. Gods Blessings!

Dear Karen and Tyler, I am so sad to hear of the loss of your beautiful daughter. My son works at twin oaks and has expressed such deep saddness at hearing the news about Amelia. He loved spending time with her, playing tball and said she had so much energy. Though I never met her, my heart goes out to you both and your family. She is a beautiful little girl. She will be missed by everyone.

Nobody could possibly understand what you are going through. There are no words that could make this any better, but please take comfort in knowing you have eachother and the support of so many people, many of whom are strangers to your family.

I'm so sorry for your loss. I know that God will give you strength to heal the pain. I never met Amelia, but I met her cousin Gabby, and I'm sure she was just as sweet. Reading her obituary brought tears to my eyes. Remember that our entire community is here for you and will do anything to help you through this difficult time. I'm glad you have a big family to offer their support. Amelia Grace, your beautiful little girl will be forever in my thoughts and prayers. She has touched us all, even those who never had the opportunity to meet your precious daughter.
