Unto us a child is born,
a special child for a special reason.
We don't pretend to understand,
only to accept and to love.

In Loving Memory of
Our Daughter
Mary Elizabeth Karg

Mary's footprints.

The mention of my child's name may bring tears to my eyes,
but it never fails to bring music to my ears.
If you are really my friend, let me hear the beautiful music of her name.
It soothes my broken heart and sings to my soul.

To My Sweet Angel, Mary Elizabeth

I see you in the sunset, I see you in the tiny clouds,
I don't know why you were taken;
I can only trust the One who has you in His
tender loving care and capable Hand.
I will never forget your face, your sweet innocence,
or your strong will to live.
You are forever my child, and I LOVE YOU!

Our little angel, Mary Elizabeth, we miss you so much.
Love, Mommy, Daddy, and big brother, Joshua


Mom don't mourn for me
I'm still here,though you don't see
I'm right by your side each night and day
And within your heart I long to stay

My body is gone but I'm always near
I'm everything you feel, see or hear
My spirit is free, but I'll never depart
As long as you keep me alive in your heart

I'll never wander out of your sight
I'm the brightest star on a summer night
I'll never be beyond your reach
I'm the warm moist sand when you're at the beach

I'm the colourful leaves when fall comes around
And the pure white snow that blankets the ground
I'm the beautiful flowers of which you're so fond
The clear cool water in a quiet pond

I'm the first bright blossom you'll see in spring
The first warm raindrop that April will bring
I'm the first ray of light when the sun starts to shine
And you'll see that the face in the moon is mine

When you start thinking there's no one to love you
You can talk to me through the Lord above you
I'll whisper my answer through the leaves on the trees
And you'll feel my presence in the soft summer breeze

I'm the hot salty tears that flow when you weep
And the beautiful dreams that come while you sleep
I'm the smile you see on a baby's face
Just look for me,mom, I'm everyplace...

[baby kissing mommy]

Dearest Mommy,
When you wonder the meaning
of life and love
Know that I am with you
Close your eyes and feel me kissing you
in the gentle breeze across your cheek

When you begin to doubt that you shall ever see me again
Quiet your mind and hear me
I am in the whisper of the heavens
Speaking of your love

When you lose your identity
When you question who you are
where you are going
Open your heart and see me
I am the twinkle in the stars
smiling down upon you
Lighting the path for your journey

When you awaken each morning
Not remembering your dreams
But feeling content and serene
Know that I was with you
Filling your night with thoughts of me

When you linger in the remnant pain
Wholeness seeming so unfamiliar
Think of me
Know that I am with you
Touching you thru the shared tears of a gentle friend
Easing the pain

As the sunrise illuminates the desert sky
In that breathtaking brilliance, awaken your spirit
Think of our time together, all too brief, but ever brilliant
When you were certain of us, together
When you were certain of your destiny

Know that God created that moment in time,
Just for us
I am with you always.
