"Children Did Exist" by an unknown author:

I've lost two children, I hear myself say,

And the person I'm talking to just turns away 

Now why did I tell them, I don't understand.

It wasn't for sympathy or to get a helping hand.

I just want them to know we've lost something dear.

I want them to know that our children were here.

They left something behind which no one can see.

They made just two people into a family.

So if I've upset you I'm sorry as can be.

You'll have to forgive me, I could not resist.

I just want you to know that our children did exist.

The mention of our child’s name may bring tears to my eyes,
But it never fails to bring music to my ears.
Let me hear the beautiful music of his name,
It soothes my broken heart, and sings to my soul.

Our Angel, Carter Alexander Rentz December 6, 2007 born too soon, but still a part of our family. 7 years we waited for him to touch our lives if only for a moment. He made us a family of 4 and gave our daughter Caila the opportunity to finally become a big sister.

Letter from your parents

To Marie, Joséphine, Charlotte 
Born and called to God on October 31 2009, All Saints Vigil 
“Marie, we wanted to give you life on earth, to keep you with us, 
We gave you life in heaven; you are close to God, your creator. 
As for us, poor creatures, pro-creators, we are crying over your absence, claiming your presence with all our senses. 
Marie, can you still hear my heart beating, as it was when you were living within me? 
Never forget this sound, never, for my heart will never beat again without thinking about you. 
I will never forget how you moved within me: you were already jumping into our arms. 
Who can judge what your life was worth, Marie? 
To us, every second spent with you is worth far more than a year. 
Desired before being conceived, loved before being born. 
Marie, you are binding us with the sky, weaving an invisible thread, 
So strong that it could make us invincible. 
For the second time, you have made us be a mum and a dad. 
You have harpooned the sky, you give us a glimpse of the firmament. 
With the grace of God, at the dawn of our life, our family will be gathered in joy, and forever, at last, we will hold you tight in our arms. 
We were dreaming of your baptism, of seeing you being plunged into water and being born again to a new divine life. We are now attending your funerals, powerlessly gazing at you, 
the flesh of our flesh. But we are joyful. Are you not already shining in heaven? 
We wanted to take care of you, to cherish you, comfort you and dry your tears, but it is you, our child, beside the comforter, who watch over us and calm our fears. 
We are blinded with tears while you are brightened by Light. Our heart is bleeding while yours is flooding with joy. 
Marie, do we owe your life to John-Paul II’s intercession? Was our supplication heard as we prayed on his tomb? 
So many mysteries… Was he already close to you as you were leaving our world? 
Born at the same time as he died, you are bound together by a mysterious link. 
In the grace of the Holy Spirit, Spirit of love that gives Life. 
It is such a wonderful comfort to hope that you are close to such great saints. 
You left us on All Saints day, have you already joined them? 
Are you already in the arms of the Mother who loves us so much and after whom you are named? 
She loves you far more than we do, your heavenly Mum. 
Help us be worthy of the strength you showed during your too short life and at the hour of your death. 
To you who are already in eternity, passing time is just a light wind, 
But to us, your absence will remain emptiness forever. 
Marie, watch over us, be the cement of our couple, hold Enguerrand’s hand. 
May the joy you filled us with last further than death. 
May the memory of you be our joy. 
As you help us gaze at heaven, help us turn our eyes towards the future. 
May our hope be strengthened by the memory of your life. 
We did not forsake you, Marie, we offered you, you are the offering of our lives.”

Little Snowdrop

The world may never notice
If a snowdrop doesn't bloom,
Or even pause to wonder
If the petals fall to soon.

But every life that ever forms
Or even comes to be,
Touches the world in some small way
For all eternity.

The little one we longed for
Was swiftly here and gone,
But the love that was then planted
Is a light that still shines on.

And though are arms are empty
Our hearts know what to do,
Every beating of our heart
Says that we love you.

- Author Unknown - 

In memory of our precious baby Nicholls-Blake.
A little star
Lent not given,
To shine on earth
And twinkle in heaven.

We will love you forever and always, mummy, daddy and Maya xxx
