You were pulled by us, yet someone else tugged at you.
We longed for your safety, and wanted you to stay.
I feel cheated, you know? You should've stayed,
You should've had a longer life,
But maybe God knew.
God knew that your life was already beautiful,
That you had already done so much,
More than most of us have or ever will.
He knew the impressions you would leave,
The lives that would forever be different,
All because of you.. because you cared.
You only stayed here longer for us,
For you understood who really wanted you.
When the sun shines, I'll think of you,
And I'll wonder why you can't be here,
But I think you're sad too, angel.
You're smiling down on us now,
With a halo so bright, that it leaves a glimmer,
In every corner of the sky.
That glimmer will remain in our lives,
And now, goes on to light the way for so many.
I am so Deeply sorrowful that we had to give you up,
But so happy that you can be in peace,
Where you belong.
Your glimmer, will forever be with us.
I love you, angel.

With every word you spoke, you changed a life,
Your impression and example will forever live on,
As your sweet voice echoes in the distance,
I long to talk to you, face to face, but I can feel it,
You are still with me. When I want to give up,
You're there telling me to look forward, to try.
How could you be gone? Life is so unfair.
My tears fall, but I know you are watching,
And when it rains, your tears are falling too.
You told me that sometimes people are dealt things,
Only because they are strong enough to handle them.
Why did we lose you? I'm finding you again,
From your strength, I can have courage.
From your sweetness, I can be patient.
From your love, the world is a better place.
When I'm down, I see you smiling,
And that makes me happy.
Though you are not here in body,
Your spirit, beliefs, and virtues will live on, forever.
Rachie, I don't want to lose you,
So I will remember always.
For all the fun times, for the times we cried.
The times we laughed, the times you were weak.
The times you were stronger, when I didn't understand.
Your place is empty now, and no one can fill it.
But you will never know how much you meant to me.
I will miss you, my friend, but I am so fortunate,
Because I got to experience who you were, and are, sweet Rachel.
For my Rachly, forever.
By Sarah (DorkySar)
Golden hair blowing in the wind, turning heads, changing lives.
Walking with beauty, floating on a cloud.
She sleeps on a bed of roses, and they compare not to her beauty.
Her heart, her mind, her soul.
A perfect harmony.
They mix, they blend, they vanish.
She is so giving she leaves nothing for herself, and she can not be happier.
Wonder of life, none are like her.
She forever is with us, she is not gone.
She lives on through us, and we live because of her giving soul.
By Mark Behnen (WarriorGiant from the Realm)
The day grows cold,
The night breathes again.
The light grows dim,
The shadows grow.
Alone I sit.
Alone, in silence.
Gone you are,
Though you are with me.
As sleep catches me,
I know I will see you again,
Tomorrow, and Tomorrow, and the Tomorrow after that,
Rachel, you will always be with me.
By Jeff Johnson (Gruumsh)
These are not my words....but have been floating around my head since I heard
the sad news. For me..and for those I have told them to..they just remind me so
much of her and what she believed. I hope you may find comfort in them.
Death Is Nothing At All
Death is nothing at all......
I have only slipped away
Into the next room.
I am I,
And you are you;
Whatever we were to each other,
That, we are still.
Call me by my old familar name,
Speak to me in the easy way
Which you always used.
Put no difference in your tone;
Wear no forced air
Of solemnity or sorrow.
Laugh as we always laughed
At the little jokes we enjoyed together.
Play, smile, think of me, pray for me.
Let my name be ever
The houshold word that it ever was.
Let it be spoken without effort,
Without a ghost of a shadow on it.
Life means all
That it ever meant.
It is the same as it ever was;
There is absolutely unbroken continuity.
Why should I be out of mind
because I am out of sight?
I am waiting for you for an interval,
somewhere very near,
just around the corner.
All is well.
Henry Scott Holland
God Bless Duckie..*Huggs*
Today we lost a loved one,
And now she's hard to find.
Living only in our hearts,
And deep within our mind.
We didn't have the chance to say,
How we love her so.
And how much we will miss her,
Since she had to go.
And so Rachel wherever you are,
We pray that you can hear.
How much we love and miss you,
In the sound of every tear.
The One We'll Always Miss
I know that your soul lives, and at the end,
she'll stand at this earth.
Even though your flesh has been destroyed,
but from this body,
I'll see the angel in heaven staring down at us,
I long for that moment.
Damn, I really miss you,
I drop a tear when I hear your name,
I was told that everything was gonna be ok,
Why do you have to be so far away?
Did it hurt you as bad as it hurt me?
What I would give for one more hug,
What I would give for one more time,
One more moment,
One more minute just to hear your voice.
If I could only hear you say,
Once more, That it'll be Ok,
No one gave me, but you gave me,
You'll the one we'll always miss,
When you left, It's like you took the Lord with you,
Why couldn't I come, when He came to get you?
What I'm about to say,
Some family members gonna hate me,
Ian lost his mind,
I don't know what's up with Sarah,
Were all out of jail, and Brian's still crazy, but we
re all doin' fine,
Some people makin' alot of trips out of town,
That's a good thing,
Were trippin' that your gone,
I thank you for my life,
I thank you for coming down from heaven,
Giving us a chance to live,
I'm sorry I didn't take that risk to just say "Hello"
I really miss you, I thank you for it all,
I thank the two beatins' you gave us,
Just to set us straight, I thank the Lord,
No one give me, but you gave me,
You'll be the one we always miss...

Does Heaven Have A Phone Number?
Rachel went to Heaven
but I need her here today.
My tears keep falling and I fell down.
I need her right away.
Operator, can you tell me how
to find her in this book?
Is Heaven in the yellow part?
I don't know where to look.
I think my friend, Lissa, really needs her too,
at night, I wonder if she still cries.
I wonder if she calls her name,
but I really don't know why.
Maybe if I call her,
she will hurry home to us.
Is Heaven very far away?
Is it across the sea?
She's been gone a long, long time.
She needs to come back to us now!
I really need to reach her.
I simply just don't know how.
Help me find the number please,
Is it listed under "Heaven"?
I can't read these big words,
I'm only seven.
I'm sorry, Operator,
I didn't mean to make you cry.
Did you fall down too,
or is there something in your eye?
If I call my church maybe they will know.
Rachel said when we need help
that's where we should go.
I found the number to my church
tacked up on the wall.
Thank you, Operator,
I'll give them a call.

Never in my life have I expected to lose a great friend like you.
I've never expected my heart to duck down deep within the shadows from you,
Never have I thought you would mean this much to me.
I guess things are not wut they always come to be,
My heart starts beating faster and faster each time I hear your name,
Never has anyone expected such a great pain,
I feel I have lost someone I knew my whole life,
For the time I have known you,
You have been like a sister to me.
Never in my life will I ever forget you.
The fun times we've had 1s of EL, with LilGPvP who is also gone, DorkySar,
Vashti, DMH, LilGrogie and all the others. Rest in Peace, my friend. May your
heart and soul go on.
