    God saw I was getting tired
    as he put his arms around me
    as he whispered come with me

    There is a place for you in heaven
    where there is no suffering and no pain
    all you have to do is look up to the sky
    and know that you will see me

    As I am an angel in the stars
    what a great place to be
    I am an angel of God and a
    sparkle I shall be

    Know that I’m watching over you
    just look up and see
    I’m looking watching over you
    please don’t be sad for me

    I’m your angel in the stars
    where I am happy now
    you will see and one day
    you will be with me

  2. There is no one word that immediately describes a person who has lost a childl. You have widows, widowers, divorces, even orphans but not one that immediately describes someone who experiences the loss of a child. The pain is too great. Anna may your family find solace in Jesus’s peaceful and loving embrace. Giving peace if unable to fully understand the early passing of Anna. Continue to trust and love God though it can be difficult with such a long loss. Yours in Christ- Helen Jeffries.

  3. Our deepest sympathy to all of your family. Our thoughts and prayers go out to all of you. Will be praying for you all to have the strength to get through all of this!
