Why did you go away
Was it your time to go?
I'd really like to know
You were too young to leave
So many left behind to grieve
It's another sad year
I wish you were here
You'll shine in the light
As always, you'll be quite a sight
Angels and family will welcome you
Some relatives you probably never knew
“God, my Great Niece is there”
“Please give her the best of care”
“She wasn't suppose to die”
“When she passed, it made people cry”
She's in good hands, this I know
Another Angel in Heaven, with a bright glow
She'll be with her Great Grandmother, and Great Uncles too
So I know they will guide her, in everything she'll do
Until we meet again, sweet Desirae
Your smile will be remembered, every day
Desirae, thank you so much for being a part of my life.
You grew into a beautiful woman. I know your spiritual
presence will still be a part of our lives here on Earth.
Even though your physical presence would have been
much better. Those closest to you will need time to
grieve. They will miss you very much. I know in time
you will let them know, that the love you shared with
them here on Earth, continues from Heaven. And they
will feel your touch and know, you are never far away.
And you'll be guiding them as they continue to journey
through their lives. "
"Desirae was one of my 4th grade students at Wells Elementary. What I remember most about Desirae was her creativity and artistic ability. She always added beautiful detail that was all her! I still use a pink bookmark that she made for me that year. It's the one I turn to most often when I read aloud to my class. As I tuck it between the pages of a book, I will continue to remember and honor Desirae's memory. I am so sorry for your loss.
"Although I did not know Desirae personally, I knew two of the family members. The first being Bud Lemire and the second being Nancy Koski. When I look into the eyes of the beautiful girl, I see nothing but kindness. She must have been a sweet sweet soul. I am so very sorry for your loss. So young to go home! I do know she had a great family though and my heart is with you all. "
"My condolences Laura and family."
"Laura and family, I'm so sorry for you loss. "
"My deepest and most sincere condolences! Dezi was a light in the dark and she will be extremely missed. I am so sorry for the loss of this beautiful angel! "
"You were such a beautiful person. In every way. I'm so sad I'll never see you again. Our time was short...but you amazed and impressed me in every way. My very deepest condolences and prayers go out to your family"
