There is no way that I can put into words the pain
that we have in our hearts today.
This very special day---the day that you were born, Heidi.
How we used to celebrate this day at one time...when you
were here. Now we take roses to your grave and release balloons to heaven
thinking that you will get them. We light your candles and we cry..
cry because we miss you so much, Heidi. You should be here
on "your day" to celebrate your 24th Birthday.
Because we can't be with you to celebrate, we pray that you're in heaven
celebrating with all of your angel friends and family.
Or maybe you don't celebrate Birthdays...maybe you
celebrate the day you went to heaven. I don't know the answers...
till one day we are united again forever. But till that
day comes,our hearts ache, we miss you terribly. Our lives can never be "right"
again...our lives can never be the same without you.
The pain is as fresh as the day you left us. That day seems like
We are weary, and our hearts hurt from this walk we now have to walk without you.
Happy Birthday in heaven, our sweet Heidi. You will live on through us...
till the day we are all together again.
We love you and think of you every day...we love you with every breath
that we take and every beat of our hearts.
All our Love for Eternity,
Mom, Dad & Scott
Life will not go on in the same way without Heidi.
If it were the same, we could only conclude her
life meant nothing, made no contribution. The
fact that she left behind a place that cannot be
filled is a high tribute to the uniqueness of her soul.
Happy Birthday in the sky
Hope your wings are passing by
Hearts are feeling lost and blue
Looking out for signs of you
Butterflies are everywhere
Colors bright beyond compare
Are you there right next to me
Touched by beauty endlessly
Candles burn but you are gone
I need your strength to carry on
Flames will glow with so much grace
Just one more time to light your face
Remembrances of love gone by
Tears like rain fall from my eyes
Want to hold you one more time
Feel your heart beat next to mine
Although I know this cannot be
Love will go on endlessly
I celebrate with life's bouquet
Your memory lingers every day
Today the flame of love will grow
Upon the earth a splendid glow
I send a message way on high
Birthday Blessings fill the sky.

Please God, make them remember that
Today is a special birthday.
Make them understand that
The memories don't go away.
Bless them with ears to hear and hearts that care.
Enable them to listen while I share.
Shelter them that they may never know my pain.
Help them to help me know that my child's life was
not in vain.
Help them to remember, Lord that I wish
That my child was here
So we could still celebrate.
To understand that I still
Feel the nearness of my child.
To see beyond my smile and the
Words. "I'm okay."
Please God, just let one remember today
Is a special birthday!
