Holding you in my heart and prayers for Chrissie's birthday.
I pray it will be a day of peace and happy memories for you,
and that you will feel Chrissie's loving spirit all around you.
Love and hugs,
This is a gift from DJ, mom to Angel Shane.
Dearest Angel Chrissie,
Wow, here we are at your 23rd birthday. So many milestones have gone by in the nearly 8 years you have been gone from us. Your 16th birthday, Graduation, your nephew and niece being born. You going off to college, so many little milestones we take for granted each day. One that we do not forget is you are missed so much each and every day. We miss you and love you more and more each day. We are keeping your memory alive in small ways. Two years ago we gave a girl or guy (yes guy now at Hood) a ring scholarship for the class ring for 2008. The year you would have graduated from Hood College. We knew you wanted to follow in your sissie's footsteps so we gave the scholarship in your name there. We know you keep watch over your nephew Petey and your niece Vanessa. We named her after you, we changed her name a little since there is only one you. Vanessa means butterfly so she is Vanessa Christian.
Love you and miss you more each day. Please have a great birthday with all of your Angel friends. Know we will be thinking of you on your special day and sending you balloons.
Till we are all together know we will continue to love and miss you each and everyday.
Hugs & Love,
Happy Birthday Sweet Angel Chrissie.

Is To Never Die

Chrissie (Fievel, sissie)
First and foremost Happy 23rd Birthday in Heaven!!! We all miss and love you. It is hard to believe that you are gone. I hug Jade Green bear every night and kiss her in the morning. I guess you already know that. You continue to inspire me to do great things.
Petey talks about you all the time and calls you a cutie. At 4 years old he is already into girlsÖall girls are cuties. Vanessa also smiles when we talk about you. You have touched their lives without you even being here.
I really miss your voice and hugging you. I look at the sunset in the fall and wonder if that is what it looked like when you died. Every sunset in the fall is beautiful, I guess you have a hand in that. I honstely cannot say that I enjoy the fall, however we do look forward to Halloween! We put up the decorations that you made in 2001.
I really want you to know that I am not angry at anyone (Ana, Jade, Jan, Victoria, Mother). I cannot hold on to that anger. I know why you are gone and Iím at peace knowing you are at peace. I will forever love you, however there is a scar on my heart that will never heal. I wrote a poem in 2005 for a class I was in. I am sharing it with you.
Sissie, I love you always and forever. Even though you are in Heaven you will always be my sister and best friend.
HAPPY 23RD BIRTHDAY FROM ALL OF US!!! WE LOVE YOU!!!
Peter (PETA BREAD), Petey and Vanessa (Tiggers in Training) and Trevia your sister (TANYA, SISSIE)

Remember Me with Love...
As years pass by, and others rarely mention my name,
remember me with love.
When my anniversary date arrives,
take a moment to say my name out loud.
If tears fall, let them.
Wherever you are, know that I am.
I live in your heart, mind and soul.
Don't worry, you will never forget me
and we will be together again.
I have taught you about a mother's love
in a way nothing else possibly could.
Don't waste this lesson,
use the love you still have to give to others.
Comfort others who have had a loss, do it in my memory.
A little bit of me, lives on in each person you touch.
You have the power to make my legacy,
one that I would be proud of.
Light a candle, buy a rose, perform an act of kindness.
Our love is so great,
no remembrance could ever be large enough
to show how much you love me,
for true love has no boundaries.
And don't forget, I love you too.
Look at a puffy cloud, flower or bird and have no doubt;
my angel spirit is.
Contemplate the many gifts I've left,
how I've affected your life in a good way.
I've shown you how precious life is
and given you a greater appreciation of it.
I've let you discover how strong you really are.
I hope my short time here has made you discover what is really important
Has it made you a better person? I hope so!
Your faith has been tested, and hopefully it has strengthened.
I hope your heart is filled with peace.
Most of all, know that our love is eternal.
If you think of me today, I will be rejoicing from above.
To know you have remembered me with your precious mother's love!
Remember me with love!
Here's a gift for Chrissie's 22nd bday. I know how you are feeling since I had Billy's 22nd this past May.
You will be in my prayers.

As Chrissie's Birthday approaches, here's a gift I made in her memory.
Happy Birthday Chrissie!
My Grandson Jakob
Chrissie at her sister's wedding. Below is the poem that Trevia wrote in Chrissie's memory.
By: Trevia-Lynne Colwell
The five demons inside your head,
Each one wants to be heard.
You try to block them,
But you are powerless against them.
The five personalities inside your head,
Each one represents themselves
By using a part of you.
You are alone in the world.
Our grandmotherís death
Your first attempt
Your second attempt
Your 15th birthday
Events in your life,
Some you canít control,
Some you can control.
Were you ever in control?
An American Flag Scarf
The many ways,
The many tries.
Did you have control?
Did you know what was happening?
Five thirty PM
Please die Jade, Jan, Anna
Victoria, the Mother
Please go away, butÖ
Why did you take my sister?
Your life ended so soon,
You left the world
The wound heals,
Over and over
Youíre on my mind,
And always in my heart.
The many names
I knew you by.
The only ones
That bring me peace.
Thinking of you as your Chrissie's 23rd birthday Approaches
May you remember her with love and happy memories
With Love Jacob's mum
My Angel Jacob
((((((((Kathie))))))) Please know that you and your angel Chrissie are in my thoughts
and prayers, as her 23rd birthday approaches. I pray the day is gentle to you.
Love and hugs,
This gift is from Donna, Mom to Angel Corey.
I hear you saying happy birthday
I hear every word you say
I feel the love coming from your heart
I know how sad you are because weíre apart
Iím in your thoughts of memories made in the past
Oh how you thought our making memories would last
You hold me spiritually inside of you
Held by the greatness of the love inside of you
Your birthday thoughts mean so much to me
It shows that you are always thinking of me
If I could have a birthday wish, which I do
Iíll just want to send my love right back to you

Happy Birthday My Sweet Child
Candles may be brightly burning,
Upon a special birthday cake.
Friends and family may be singing,
To what appears an empty space.
You see, that space is only empty,
To your normal human sight.
For your child is always near you,
With a spirit that is bright.
To touch may not be possible,
Although your child exists,
Not in a way you understand,
But with a presence that persists.
So celebrate this special day,
The day your child was born,
Shout "Happy Birthday My sweet Child!!!"
Even though you deeply mourn.

May God comfort your heart Kathie..... and I pray that you can remember some of the wonderful times you spent with Chrissie

With Love and Compassion,

This poem is one of many that my ANGEL Lee wrote,
I would love to share it with you...
Softness of the skin
Sweetness in the smell
Nectar of the fruit
Tender in the heart
Dancing in the eyes
Uplifting in the smile
Tickle of the touch
Joining in the love
Truth in the speech
Love in the laughter
Primal in the scream
Soft in the whisper
Quick in the mind
Fair in the sentence
Brave in the confrontation
Joining in the love
Graceful in the sleep
Careful in the search
Deep in the sorrow
Strength in the sickness
Giving of thy self
Rich in the health
Kind in the giving
Joining in the love
