The angels looked down from heaven one night
They searched for miles afar,
And deep within the distance
They could see a shining star.

They knew that very instant
That the star was theirs to gain,
So they took you up to heaven
Forever to remain.

Look down on us from heaven
Keep us free from hurt and pain,
You'll always be within my heart
Until we meet again.

I lost my sweet daughter, Kim, in January 2000. She was only 27 years old. She was with us one moment and then she was taken away. Not a day goes by that I don't think about her. She had a beautiful smile and an infectious laugh, which I can still hear. I miss her so much. Heaven has a beautiful angel. I long to see Kim. Love you, Mom and Dad.

When you're in a cast, you're so close, it's like family. I didn't even know her all that well. I knew her favorite things and what she liked to do in her spare time, but that's about it. She was closer than a cousin, but not quite as close as a sibling. I never realized how much pain she was in.
One day we were in an optional class on Greek mythology, which I loved. She started drawing something, but I didn't pay much attention because she did that all the time. She was a great artist, so at the end of the class I looked over at what she had drawn. It was a picture of herself holding hands with a skeleton. Both the drawings had the same hair and were wearing her favorite green hoodie. I didn't pay much attention to it and soon forgot.

One day, my mom told me, "Come sit down. I have something to tell you."
She was 14.
Too young to die.
I can't help but feel if I had said something about the drawing or talked to her, I could have stopped it.
It's unfair.

A friend closer than my girlfriend died of a headache. It still seems a folk tale to me. I just don't know how to bear the thought of the loss of this dear friend... Oh death, how lethal.

Life was beautiful in your presence; it's hateful now. You left me without a word, but your memories will never leave. In your remembrance. - Rafiya

In Memory of Janet Baron, my dear sweet friend and shining star. This poem comes from my heart. You are and will always be my shining star. Always when I look into the heavens above and see the brightest shiniest star, I know it's you watching over me and so many of your family and dear friends that love and miss you so much, until we meet again, I love you and I always will.
