My Niece was found deceased two days ago of unnatural causes.

 

 

Where are you now my thoughts do turn?
Whilst in my stomach the aches do churn
A goddess thou were to me
Yet now you’re in heaven, free

I saw you with family past In a dream
My grandpa said, tell your mum it's sunny here
Your grandpa said he was surprised
To see his granddaughter in heavens skies

I have not stopped weeping since you closed
Your eyes and fell asleep with no goodbyes
Joy and love was all you’d share
Spreading joy without a care

Such sweet memories my Ophelia, fair
My heart left broken; beyond repair
Life is tough you chose to depart
Amy you are for ever
Etched, with love
Upon my heart

Uncle Andrew xxx

Andy,

May God wrap her in His loving arms
Bring her joy and peace
May beautiful memories fill your heart
Of your lovely niece
May God bring you comfort
And may He hold your hand
God has everything planned
Someday we'll understand....

My deepest symathy,
+Linda

So very sad, and so very sorry for your loss.

Andy,condolences always fall woefully inadequate in times of personal grief. My thoughts and prayers are with you and Amy's parents. The loss of a loved one is difficult to cope with and the loss of one so young and vital makes it even more difficult to fathom the why. May peace and love be with you and Amy's parents my friend.

I am sorry for your loss Andy, for we may not understand why such a beautiful little soul is snatched from us. Therefore, we must keep their love in our hearts and know they feel ours no matter what plain they are on.

You both will be in my meditations sweetheart

Her life and success was meteoric and her newly-named star that you have found in heaven's skies says it all, Andy. She will not leave you comfortless and her work is a national and international legacy that will continue her mission and fame. It is completely beyond our current understanding as to how this could have happened and I'm in awe that you have been able to so quickly pen this heart response. Amy is and was many things, but to you she is always the bright-eyed and marvellous protege girl-child who will continue to enrich your life and mind forever. Walking alongside you as you tread this heavy, dark and necessary path of grief. Keep offering up the pain and light will miraculously come. Answers will be found and much come out of this long night of the family soul. Her star shines bright for and among you. xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx

This ode to your niece contains bravery and poignancy carved from the suffering tree. These two lines alone say it all: "I have not stopped weeping since you closed/Your eyes and fell asleep with no goodbyes." Beautiful expression of your grief. Condolences are never enough. ~~ Diana
