...where there will be no more "Tears in Heaven"

In memory of my niece, Dawn, who's beautiful smile, vibrant personality, and
love for animals, will be a loss to all who knew her...I love you Dawn.


Death is nothing at all
I have only slipped away into the next room.
Whatever we were to each other,
that we are still.
Call me by my old familiar name,
speak to me in the easy way you always did.
Laugh as we always laughed
at the little jokes we enjoyed together.
Play, smile, think of me, pray for me.
Let my name be the household word it always was.
Let it be spoken without effort.
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 your mind
because I am out of your sight?
I am but waiting for you, for an interval,
somewhere very near, just around the corner.
All is well.
Nothing is past; nothing is lost.
One brief moment and all will be as it was before;
only better, infinitely happier, and forever;
we will be one together with the Lord

For my sorrow in your loss and to remember all those who we have loved and lost on earth. I too believe we will all meet once again, and that heaven has some very special angels. Dawn sounds like a lovely person inside even more so than her beautiful outside. ~Kathlyn~
As the mother of three very precious daughters, I have been touched by this memorial for Dawn. She was obviously a very special lady, and the world is a sadder place for her loss. May it be of comfort to her family to know that a stranger on the other side of the world cried a tear for her today. ~Sharon G. (Australia)~

Hello, Dawn. Thank you for guiding your Mom and Auntie Fran to me, I treasure their friendship. I feel by way of meeting these two unique women, I have met you, and your beautiful children. Dawn, your mom, and aunt miss you so much. Please show me how to ease their pain. I look forward to meeting you. I won't have any problem finding you; you'll be in the midst of the animals. :o) Please save me a place near you and the animals, which I too, love so dearly. One last favor; you'll meet my Maddy soon. Please hold her close to you. Love, ~Judy~

Dawn, I have seen the pages your Mother created for you, and I know that I would have loved you if only I could have met you. I have a Son there who loved animals, so I hope you and he can talk, also a little Daughter. You are all waiting for loved ones to join you, and we are looking forward to being with our Angels. This candle is for you. ~Dean Sellers~
Dawn, I never knew you but I know your Mom and Auntie Fran. I love you and enjoy to visit, be with you, every once in a while. You're very special and touch hearts. As night fall arrives, so go the skies and then new beauty does arise. The stars one see from afar, glitter and fills one's mind, of all the beauty they leave behind. From heaven above, you see your own stars, they are your family and friends you love and as you look down upon us, we can feel your blessings.
Love ~Geoff~
Dawn, you are a beautiful angel caring for all of Gods living creatures in heaven, please give my cat Bobby a cuddle, we all miss him and know he is with you and the other animals. May we meet in heaven. ~Bridget Kaskeski~
Dawn, I light this candle for you and your mom. Although we never met, I know that your spirit is around your family. I hope that this light you will carry with you always. There may be times when you will need the light to find your mom, your aunt, or your children. I know your mom misses you very much, and sometimes it will help just to know that your spirit is near her. It's not the same as having you here but just to know that you are around looking after your family does help. So Dawn, take this light where ever you go - you never know when you will need it. ~Pam Strother~
This candle is for the beautiful angel above..her name is Dawn. If we had never met, I probably wouldn't be the caring person that I am today. I've learned so much from you! I believe that GOD had given me a special gift and that gift was having the opportunity to know you. Words could never describe how much I miss you, but I know that you are walking in the heavens with our Lord and Savior watching over loved ones. I also know that one day you and I will meet again. Please remember that I miss you very much and I pray for your mother and children everyday. I also want you to know that I always thought of you as my mother and best friend. Your are greatly missed. ~ Dawn M Quillon ~
Please light a candle for Dawn for me. I cannot fathom losing a niece or a daughter. I know how much I miss my mom and dad and aunts and uncles, so I hurt for you and your family. I am so glad you have faith, though, to help get you through until the time you will see Dawn again. God bless you for sharing all of these beautiful, loving poems and comments with everyone. It was a bless to me to find this page. With love and gratitude, Micki Morgan-Rybicki
