  To the living I am gone

To the sorrowful I will never return

To the angry I was cheated

But to the happy I am at peace

And to the faithful I have never left

I can not speak but I can listen

I can not be seen but I can be heard

So as you stand upon the shore

Gazing at the beautiful sea

Remember me

As you look in awe at a mighty forest

And its grand majesty

Remember me

Remember me in your heart

In your thoughts

And your memories of the times we loved

The times we cried

The battle I fought

And the times we laughed

For if you always think of me

I will have never gone.

  You may have thought I didn't see, or that I hadn't heard life lessons that you taught me, but I got every word.~~Perhaps you thought I missed it all, and that we'd grow apart, but Shawna, I picked up everything, it's written on my heart.~~Without you Shawna, I wouldn't be the person I am today; you built a strong foundation no one can take away. ~~

You were a wonderful and wise friend to so many of us. You will never be forgotten.

  My Most Beloved Family and Friends, Think of me and know I am with you, think of me and smile.

Think of me and knowing that our parting is only for awhile.

On the days that you feel so desperate to see my smiling face, just belive in your heart I am with you and that I am in a beautiful place.

So think of me and remember all of the memories in your heart, and believe and know that it is true, we are never really apart.~~Love forever Shawna

  I am sorry for your loss. Shawna is a beautiful Angel. They come into our lives for just a short time and leave us with footprints on our hearts that are deep and lasting. They love us with a love that is sent from GOD and teach us what true, unconditional and pure love is. May the days be short until you meet your Angel again.

  I can dream. There's no fairy godmother to make my wish come true. No genie in a bottle to bring me to you. No prayer on a fallen star. No magic potion in a jar. But I can dream and when I do, I dream that I'm there with you.

  What can I say we have so many memories...so many things to look back on. I learned so much from you, I gained so much. I loved the way you made me laugh, I hated the way you made me cry, but what I hated most of of all is when we had to say good-bye.
