"Heaven's Latest Angel"

"Silently, one by one, in the infinite meadows of heaven,
blossomed the lovely stars, the forget-me-nots of Angels"

Such a little girl
living grown up dreams,
shooting for the sky,
her living an example,
her death was a surprise,
heaven's latest angel
finally gets to fly.

She touched so many lives,
she made us see the light.
Dreams are only dreams
unless we live them day and night.
Her life here may have ended
but her soul will never die.
Heaven's latest angel
finally gets to fly.

Nothing left to ground her,
spirit ... finally free.
The world hers to discover
from sea to shining sea.
Yearning for the blue skies
as she waves one last good-bye.
Heaven's latest angel
finally gets to fly.

Hi, my name is Joyce, I am the maternal grandmother (Nanny) to the beautiful little girl you are about to meet. Our lifes changed forever on April 16,2000 when Lauren was killed in a car crash. She was riding with her paternal grandmother and aunt, they both died that day too.

My daughter and I, searching for comfort, spent many hours looking at memorial sites for others, especially children. It seemed to ease the pain a little knowing that there were others who knew and understood our pain and that through the internet we could be connected to them.

We never expect our children to leave this world before we do and when this happens it leaves a huge-gaping-black hole, right in the middle of your heart.

Please stick around and meet Lauren, she was very special, she saw angels, (see page "Lauren's Story") and she is loved and missed more than words can ever say. Expect to shed a tear or two, that's ok, but please come help us celebrate the 9 years, 4 months and 4 days that Lauren Marie Waller spent on this earth, all the lives she has touched and the lives that she continues to touch through this website and the people who love her!!!

We love you baby :)

God Bless You and thank you for taking the time to view this memorial.
Joyce - Lauren's Nanny "Forever"

Just like a beautiful long stemmed rose,
Her precious memory grows and grows.
Touching the hearts of all of those she loves,
And like the fragrance of that same rose,
Her love so sweet still flows and flows,
Filling our lives with a warmth,
that shows she's there,
So, like a forever-blooming rose,
The beauty she shared eternally glows,
For deep in our hearts,
Each of us knows....
