Cait's Page

I am devoting this page to my best friend, Caitlin Ellement, who died in June of last year. She was in a car with her boyfriend, Anthony, and friend's Jessica and Hubert. Hubert was the one behind the wheel as they went to a party. Hubert decided to try and show off on a curvy road, and attempted to pass two cars at once. He had to swerve to avoid an oncoming car, and first ran into a pole, then spun off and went over a small cliff. Anthony had kidney problems, Jessica and Hubert had small injries, such as the bruise/burn from the seatbelt. Cait suffered massive head trauma, and had to be put on life support. Three days later, her family made the descision to take her off life support. She died three hours later.

I met Cait when I was thirteen, on neopets, and in a guild that was being abandoned. I still remember our first msn conversation. I told her what I was eating for supper and she asked me to "Fed-Ex summa that over here"Caitlin was my best friend, and in a lot of ways, she was my only true friend. I could talk to her about anything that troubled me, or anything that made me feel insignificant. I helped her through a tough tinme, but she will never know how much she helped me. Sometimes, I made myself get up every morning, just to talk to her, because I knew how much she needed my support when one of her best friends was ignoring her. I went home every night, just wanting to talk to her, and relieve some of my stress. If I didn't have her as an outlet, I don't know what I would've done. Just having her there to talk to was a comfort to me. Cait had a huge obsession with dragons. They were her favourite animals, and she really believed that they existed. Well, we have to believe that magic exists in this world, because she was in it. She touched everyone around her, and made them happy no matter what. Even if she was sad inside, she wouldn't let it show. In the words of Caitlins brother at her funeral, Cait was too good to be on this earth. I have often thought that she was sent to watch over everyone around her.

I have learned so much from her, and yet, I've forgotten a lot, too, through this experience.

I've learned that amazing things come in unexpected packages.

I've forgotten what it was like to trust a person.

I've learned how to loose things.

I've forgotten how to feel joy at the thought of going to a movie with a friend.

I've learned how to look people in the eye when I talk to them.

I've forgotten how to talk to people about me.

I've learned that this life is unpredictable, unfair, and currently a mess.

I've forgotten what it was like to sit down at a computer or phone, and be happy at the thought of being there.

I've learned that you can't have a perfect life without problems, and having no problems is a problem all its own.

I've forgotten how to smile when I'm alone.

I have included some pictures of her provided by a friend of hers.

Afer Cait died, Brit sent this poem to me. It has become one of the things that I like to read when times are tough.

I welcome you....

There are somethings Id like to say,
But first of all, I arrived here ok.

I'm writing this from heaven where i dwell with God above,
Here, there are no more tears of sadness, here is just enternal love.

Please do not be unhappy just because I'm out of sight,
Remember I am with you every morning, noon, and night.

That day I had to leave you, when my life on earth was through,
God picked me up and hugged me and he said "I welcome you"

"Its good to have you back again, you were missed while you were gone,
As for your dearest family, they'll be here later on"

"I need you here badly, you are part of my plan,
There's so much that we have to do, to help our mortal man."

God gave me a list of things that he wished for me to do,
And foremost on the list, was to watch over and care for you.

And when you lie in your bed at night and the day's chores put to flight,
God and I are closest to you.. in the middle of the night.

When you think of my life on earth, and all those loving years,
Because you are only human, there are bound to bring you tears.

But do not be afraid to cry, it does relieve the pain,
Remember there wouldn't be flowers, if there wasnt any rain.

I wish I could tell you all that God has planned,
If I were to tell you, You wouldnt understand.

But one thing is for certain, though my life on earth is over,
Im closer to you now, then I was ever before.

There are many rocky roads ahead of you and many hills to climb,
But together we can do it by taking one day at a time.

It was always my philosophy and I'd like it for you,
That as you give into the world, The world will give back into you.

If you can help somebody who's in sorrow or pain,
Then you can say to God at night.. "My day was not in vain"

And now i am contented.. that my life was worthwhile,
Knowing as I passed along the way I made someone smile.

So if you meet someone who is feeling sad and low,
Just lend them a hand to pick him up, as on your way to go.

When your walking down the street and you've got me on your mind,
Im walking in your footsteps a half a step behind.

And when its time for you to go.. From that body to be free,
Remember your not going.. Your coming here with me...
