Would you know my name
If I saw you in heaven?
Would it be the same
If I saw you in heaven?

Would you hold my hand
If I saw you in heaven?
Would you help me stand
If I saw you in heaven?

I must be strong
And carry on,
‘Cause I know I don’t belong
Here in heaven.

This is my daughter, Katie. She passed away and I lost her when she was 6 years old. Her loss was the greatest I have ever suffered. She was a bright and beautiful child with a sunny personality, and she was loved by all.

  1. 🙁 I hadn’t thought of this theme in that way, but it fits very well. I feel kind of bad because I don’t have anything profound to say but I wish that with that cute picture, I was seeing an adult woman who was just as joyful.

  2. Tears flowing over here again…I never realized you had been through so much. I believe we are kindred spirits of sorts. I’m so sorry for your loss….I have no words to express my heartfelt emotions with this post.

    It’s been a very emotional day for me today (as you know..thank you for your comment to my recent post).

    God has given you much sensitivity and compassion and I’ve been touched by that from you.

    Hugs to you my friend….

  3. WOW! So sad. I don’t know how I’d cope with the death of my child / children. I am so sorry that you had to go through that. She was a beautiful little girl and her smile in that picture is so innocent and genuine.

    I know she’s currently dancing in heaven and filled with joy.

  4. Maribeth, I can’t imagine a loss more devastating than loosing your beautiful sweet little girl. My heartfelt prayers are with you. I hope your loving memories can sustain you throughout your life; one day we will all be reunited. blessings

  5. What a deep sorrow you carry, Maribeth. I am in awe of the way you face your sorrow and allow yourself to find joy in other arenas. Your strength is a model for us all.


  6. I love that picture of Katie. I can hear her voice, her laughter and feel her hugs! She’s not so far from us and I know she is always near you. Love Ya!

  7. Maribeth, Katie will never be lost, she’s in your heart and she’s your guardian angel. I met her only once, as a baby, and I vividly remember her beautiful face, beautiful red hair, and her fiesty spirit. She will always be a part of you, in the loving and generous way you give to others. Thanks for sharing her with us. Love, Michele

  8. Dearest Maribeth,
    you know how close I feel to you and the loss of Katie. She is still in your soul and heart and that is the main thing! Surely she looks down from heaven and it mails her happy you love her so much.
    Love and hugs, your friend and sister in soul Uschi

  9. Wow.
    I have no words.
    I can only say that loss does not make us stronger. It shows us the strength we already have in reserve within.
    None-the-less loss never changes, inspight of what people think. Now is the time you laugh and giggle about past memories, then take a little sigh. Feeling guilty about feeling happy for one that is gone to us. Then our heart opens and allows us to be enveloped in the joy of their memory and our soul gives a little nod to the loss.

  10. Such a beautiful little girl and the lyrics reflect that terrible sense of having lost an angel…so sorry, meine liebe, no right words to say here…

  11. I am so sorry for your loss. I can’t imagine the pain you must live with everyday. It truly fits the theme. {{{hugs}}}
