|In Loving Memory of
My Daughter Lena
|The loss of a child is surely the most painful hurt of all,
because the love between parent and child,
is the most precious love of all.
It is impossible to understand why this beautiful special
person has been taken away from us so soon.
There is no justice in it.
There is no reasoning to explain it.
There is no fast way to mend the hurt.
|A Special Angel
There's a special angel in Heaven,
That is a part of me.
It is not where I wanted her,
But where God wanted her to be.
She was here just a moment,
Like a night time shooting star.
And though she is in Heaven
She isn't very far.
She touched the hearts of many,
Like only an angel can do.
I would've held her every minute,
If the end I only knew.
So I send this special message,
To Heaven up above.
Please take care of my angel,
And send her all my love!
|This is my daughter Lena, my only child. Lena was taken away from us on August 1, 1999, 2 months before her 21st birthday.
Lena was a very loving and caring person. She loved dolphins, line dancing, kids and she was a very talented artist. Lena's dreams were to get married when she was 23 and have her 1st baby when she was 25. Lena's dreams are now gone, also my dreams and memories of watching my daughter get married and starting her own family. I will never know the joys of being a Grandmother. Like most mother's and daughter's we would have our fights, but we never left the house or hung up the phone without saying "I Love You", I still tell her everyday, I just don't hear "I Love You Mom" anymore..
|On August 1, 1999, Lena was a passenager in a car, which the driver & another driver decided to play a game of ROAD RAGE. This went on for over 30 miles. The 2 drivers didn't care about the safety of their passenagers. And the car Lena was in, the driver had her 4yr old daughter in the car, but not in a car seat or buckled in. Now because of 2 peoples senseless act, an innocent life was taken. They took my baby away from me, I want them to tell me why and explain why they took Lena's future away from her.|
|Poems and Letters|
|Her Journey's Just Begun
Don't think of her as gone away, her journey's just begun
life holds so many facets this earth is only one.
Just think of her as resting, from the sorrows and the tears
in a place of warmth and comfort where there are no days and years.
Think how she must be wishing that we could know today
how nothing but our sadness can really pass away.
And think of her as living in the hearts of those she touched
for nothing loved is ever lost and she was loved so much.

|I wrote this for Lena on June 6, 1996, on her graduation.
On August 1, 1999, I changed a few words for her funeral.
I have watched you grow from my beautiful baby girl, into
the beautiful young lady you became.
The hardest thing for me to do in my life is letting you go.
It's time for you to spread you Angel Wings and Fly.
Always and Forever you will be in my heart.
I Love You Honey,
