First Birthday in Heaven 11/11/05

Katie Taylor Mannion
11/11/90 – 6/5/05

My Precious Daughter,

This, On your first birthday in heaven,
Not a day goes by that I don’t think of you,
Not a day goes by that I don’t miss your smile, or the touch of your hand,
or the gentle sound of your voice.
I want you to know how deeply you are loved,
how sorely you are missed, how empty the world is without your daily
presence;
how beautiful you are both inside and outside, and how strong you were for
your family and your friends.
You are everything I could want in a daughter, and then so much more.
I miss you so; yet take comfort in knowing, that you are happier now,
In a better place, and at peace.   Still…I miss you, as you are,
and will always be, my Angel.
You are with me always, and someday, I will be with you once again.

With Eternal Love,

Dad

First Christmas in Heaven 12/25/05

My Precious Daughter,

This, on your first Christmas in heaven,   
There is emptiness where you once stood.
While Love and memories attempt to fill that void,
I long for your presence, and to share time with you.
Yet I know I will no longer have these moments,
To be with you for all your tomorrows.
To walk you down the aisle on your wedding day,
To hold your first child.
To tell you face to face how much I love you,
And how much you mean to me.
I wanted you to know this now and forever; for all of my life,
On Christmas or any day,
You are my greatest gift.

With Eternal Love,

Dad

First Anniversary in Heaven 6/5/06

My Precious Daughter,

This today, on your first year in heaven,   
I want you to know that you are still with us everyday,
That you are still my and many others constant inspiration,
That your friends still hear your whispers of encouragement,
That your family lives because of the strength you give us,
That we all press on to help others like you have taught us,
That we all feel the love that you so freely give to those who know you,
And that all this and so much more,
is what keeps you alive in all of us.

With Eternal Love,

2nd Birthday in Heaven 11/11/06 - My Sweet Sixteen

My Precious Daughter,

Although you are gone from sight, you are never gone from mind.
The love I have for you makes you more alive today than anyone I
know.
Today would be your sixteenth birthday, had the Lord not taken you,
But he needed one more angel, and he chose mine.
Please know that you are loved dearly, and missed by all you
touched.
You live forever in our hearts, as we continue to celebrate your life,
And how you taught us to put others first.
Happy Sweet Sixteen, my angel.

With Eternal Love,

Dad

Second Anniversary in Heaven 6/5/07

From Dear Friends:

Always on our minds

Katie it's been two years to this day
That you took your life
Not a second passes
When you're not on my mind

Katie your smile alone warmed hearts
Your laugh was like music to hear
You truly were an angel sent from god in heaven above.

When I found out that you had died
I thought that they were wrong.
You were so alive - and then just like that, you were gone.
It still is quite a shock to me
That you are gone
But no one will forget you Katie T. Mannion
R.I.P. 6/5/05

Love, Grace F. On behalf of Katie's Adoring Friends.
