editor’s note: a poem written from Lauren’s parents
I picture you, My Sweet Baby, in a golden crib wrapped in blankets made of clouds.
Angels are at each corner, hovering over you, so proud
We know you are safely placed in the palms of God’s Hands
Your Mommy and Your Daddy just wish we could understand
Why we didn’t get a chance to kiss and hold you tight
Didn’t get a chance to calm your cries in the night.
We didn’t get a chance to wipe your little nose
Didn’t get a chance to kiss your little toes.
We know in our hearts Heaven is the best place you can be
Although we wish with all our hearts you were here to play with Abby.
Please just know, Sweet Lauren, our love for you runs deep
Your memory in our hearts, to cherish and to keep.
You will always be with us, Mommy, Daddy, Jordan, Jake and Abby.
We celebrate your short, sweet life and how you made us happy.
Words can never reveal how much we ache in our hearts.
But when we join with you in Heaven we will never be apart.
Until Then, Lauren
All of our love for Eternity,
Mommy, Daddy, Jordan, Jake and Abby
In Loving Memory of Lauren Brooke Hill,
