I sat in a world of grief ridged to my seat; they came through the door a white bag in hand and placed her small forlorn body inside. I watched in a maze them take her away that day. We had funeral arrangements to make, a white coffin laced in pure pink satin was my request that I gave. I sent the pretty little pink and white dress I had made for you and your small rag doll to keep you company for always.I told all my family not to wear black but to wear joyful clothes because you were just an angle here on earth. The day before you were buried I went to see you laid at rest in the tiny chapple next to the grand old church.

When I walked into the room candles they were lit, you lay in your pretty dress however a smile they placed upon your face. It did not please me because it looked so strange now that you were gone. However I prayed and looked at you peace for you at long last.Next day was the Funeral it was small and only a few friend and family did turn up. I gave each lady a pink carnation to place upon your pure white coffin. I had an Angle done in flowers with a porcelain dolls head because I suppose in life you were my precious little doll who I loved with all my heart, yet now inside the church I knew that you had gone to a better place than here.

As we walked up the rocky path to the grave that they had dug, we all stood there and words were spoken I can't say ever what about. I watched them lower your coffin and the tears they flowed so hard. All of the carnations were thrown for each year of your short life 9 in all. I stood ridged to the spot I did not want to leave, yet a little tug from my young son reminded me, life goes on. Because my two dear sons needed me to carry on.
