Don't cry Mommy,
Mommy, please don't cry.
Because the day we left your loving arms
We didn't say good-bye.
We're still here with you
And Daddy too...we just wanted you to know
Although our souls have left this earth,
There's a part of us that could not go.
It's the love we built
Between us Mom, The memories that we shared,
These wonderful things God let us leave behind
Because of how much you cared.
Only God knows how much we miss you Mommy
And the time we spent on Earth.
The way you loved to hold us close,
Ever since our Birth.
And He knows how much you miss us Mom,
God promises we'll be together again,
For all eternity, and that's a long time.
We will see you then.
So don't cry Mommy,
Mommy, please don't cry.
Because the day we left your loving arms.
We didn't say...
I LOST MY FIRST DAUGHTER VICKI TO CANCER, IT WAS A HARD ROAD BUT I NEVER GOT TO GRIEVE FOR HER BECAUSE I LOST MY OLDEST SON DENNIS DUE TO A RACING HEART ATTACK. I HAD TO WATCH THEM BOTH DIE. THEY WERE MY ROCKS, I HAD THEM SO YOUNG SO THEY WERE
MY BEST FRIENDS ALSO, SUCH GOOD KIDS. VICKI WAS 36, DENNIS WAS 35.
THEY BOTH DIED IN 2001, VICKI ON FEB 18TH, DENNIS ON JUNE 10TH
SAYING GOOD BYE TO VICKI WAS THE HARDEST THING I EVER HAD TO DO, SEEING THEM
BIG BEAUTIFUL EYES AND SAYING (((MOM ))) IT RIPPED MY HEART OUT,
OH GOD I SEE IT NOW...
THEN DENNIS HELD MY HAND, BUT NEVER KNEW HE WAS GOING TO PASS...
These are two beautiful and loving gifts for Angel Dennis from my dear friend, Carol, mom to Angel Michael.
I wrote your name on the sand,
but the waves washed it away.
I wrote your name on the sky,
but the wind blew it away.
I wrote your name in my heart,
and forever it'll stay.
These are two beautiful and loving gifts for Angel Vicki from my dear friend, Carol, mom to Angel Michael.

With our memory of your last breath
still in our eyes and our hearts,
The tears, the pain is still here.
Everyday we see you in your brothers
your smile in your sisters.
Only the ones that loved you will
the joy that you gave us.
We miss & love you and we'll always
keep you alive.
Until we meet again.........................
Love mom, dad, scooter, wendy,
& your nine babys.......(the nine babys are her nieces and nephews..)

Seven years ago now i was getting Vicki ready for a christmas party from her work. How beautiful she was. Vicki had lost so much weight so we went out to get her all new outfit. Evwrything was going well they told us she was cancer FREE. Oh how happy we were. Well then she passed out on me a few days later. I just thought she was doing too much. Well it was a few days before christmas, and I took her to the HOSPITAL. A couple days later they told me she had cancer in her brain. I lost it, i couldn't get it. So they said they would do radiation. At this time she never lost her hair until they did that and more Chemo. I would brush her hair as i did all her life. She'd ask, "Mom will you brush my hair?" every time she came over.
Then the DR wanted to talk to the family. I knew my Vicki was going to be ok.
Well, the doc came in and said, "Vicki doesn't have much time." I asked him, "Why did you tell us it was gone and now this?" He said it was mastating all through her. I hit the floor, don't remember much that day, well any way... we had her for christmas and my birthday was the 5th of February. I was so afraid of her not being here, but we had her for the New Years Day. But this time she was so sick, couldn't walk, oh god, it just killed me. One morning I went to her room, and she said, "Mom i'm sick." I told her, "Sis, we will get you through this." Well 2 days later, i got up with her, and she said, "Mom, i have to go to the hospital." I said, "I know, Sis." She asked me, "Mom, am i going to die?" I said, "No, we're going to get you strong again." She said, "Ok, mom." But at this time she was yellow, orange; I knew it had got the liver, but i never gave up hope. She got past my birthday, the 5th, we lost her the 18th. I never left her from the day we found out she had cancer
to her heaven date...
The picture above is my son Dennis.
He was a race car driver. He was killed by running into the wall not long after this race. Same day. He had a heart attack and crashed, only months after my daughter Vicki died from cancer.
We lost them
only almost 4 mos. apart. Our hearts are shattered.
THE ROSE BEYOND THE WALL
Near shady wall a rose once grew,
Budded and blossomed in God's free light,
Watered and fed by morning dew,
Shedding its sweetness day and night.
As it grew and blossomed fair and tall,
Slowly rising to loftier height,
It came to a crevice in the wall,
Through which there shone a beam of light.
Onward it crept with added strength
With never a thought of fear or pride,
It followed the light through the crevice's length
And unfolded itself on the other side.
The light, the dew, the broadening view
Were found the same as they were before,
And it lost itelf in beauties new,
Breathing its fragrance more and more.
Shall claim of death cause us to grieve
And make our courage faint and fall?
Nay! Let us faith and hope receive...
The rose still grows beyond the wall,
Scattering fragrance far and wide
Just as it did in days of yore,
Just as it did on the other side,
Just as it will forever...

My daughter Vicki loved butterflys, then the day we buried her brother in June there was 1 butterfly flying all around the sun room. I was sitting there waiting to go to put him away, I got out of the car and there it was again. I never thought much of it, until one day i heard my husband outside talking to someone. I went to the porch and asked him who he was talking to. He said, "Vicki and Dennis." I asked, "What do you mean?" He said the 2 butterflys won't leave me alone, they are watching me plant the flowers to see if i was doing it right."
Of course i cried.
Well, i want you to know, they are here every summer. They are here every day, when it is warm. This is a so true story, my Vicki and Dennis are with dad and i every day in the summer. I have the other kids saying, "Mom, here is Vicki and Dennis!" Sure enough they are out there just flying around. We lost Vicki in February 2001,
and the same year on June 10th we lost Dennis...
My Childrenís Soul to Keep
Dear Lord I come to thee my friend,
With a message I must send,
My child has come to thee,
With their souls set free,
And my life has been torn,
Remembering the day they were born,
So please hold my dear children tight,
Keeping them in your guiding light,
And when they ask if momís okay,
Please tell them I feel them this day,
And I will join them with love,
Stored in my heart from above,
And when I see them it will flow,
Causing every heart to richly glow,
So within the tears I this day weep,
I ask You now my childrenís soul to keep.

There's a pain beyond imagining
That's burning in your heart
For suddenly your whole world
Has been cruelly ripped apart.
All words of consolation
Which are bound to
come your way
Will probably seem empty
And of little use today.
For when you ask
the question why
It makes no sense at all
That two so precious had to die.
The only source of comfort
Is your memories and the love
And they will shine forever
Like the brightest star above.
A flame that burns eternally
So strong it lights the sky
And even through
your darkest days
That flame will never die.
So many people share your pain
We grieve with you as one.
The gift of life gets taken back
But the love goes on and on.
Remember us with all your love
And with pain or with sorrow
Though we're not with you,
We still feel your love
Yesterday, today and tomorrow
It was special to be your children
For the time we were there
Cherish our memories together
Even when you think life isn't fair
Though we may not be there with you
We are always around
Sometimes we do appear to you
A butterfly, a song or in a friend you have found
Remember us with a joyful heart
Along with happiness and love
These are the things that keep me alive
Forever within your heart....

To Helen and ANGEL Vicki
The pain I feel
It is always a tug
I have to believe it's you
Giving me that special hug
Yes Mom it is me believe it
Giving you that special touch
Although you can't see or hear me
I want you to know I still love you
And when GOD calls you home
Again Mom we will be together
I can't wait, I know you can't
Then and only then it will be
Dear Helen and ANGEL Dennis
Please don't think of your
ANGEL Dennis as gone
He is just away for a while
He has flown his way
Into an unknown land
With that special smile of his
And a wave of his hand
Just open your Eyes and Heart
Through that special star up above
He will be blowing kisses down to you
And sending you all his love
MY DEEPEST LOVE TO YOU HELEN
'Here is a Butterfly for you too Angel Dennis'
In Loving Memory Of Lee Henry Aguilera
Dearest Helen and Family
Your ANGEL Vicki
Is now an ANGEL
She is also a butterly too
When it starts getting warmer
She spreads her wings
And makes her way
Down to see you
Dennis does the same thing
They make that trip together
For your Mom and Dad
It's wonderful for them
I Pray it will last forever.
MY DEEPEST LOVE
In Loving Memory of a Beautiful Angel
Love and Prayers
My Darling Children
This mother's heart will search for you
In places far beyond my view
Perhaps Iíll see you in my dreams
If you could only come to comfort me
To hear your whispers in the quiet of the night
where memories of you my dear sweet children
Remind me that you have gone into the light
The beautiful image below is a loving gift from Angel Michael's mom, Carol. Please read what she wrote below.
Sending Love and Prayers to you
As we Honor your Angel
Vicki's and Dennis'
I have a candle burning in Memory of your Angels
