This memorial website was created in the memory of our loved one, Emma Berry who was born in Longwood, Florida on May 02, 2006 and passed away on June 29, 2006 . We will remember her forever.
Emma was born to James and Belinda on an early May morning. After 3 boys, Emma was finally about to make an appearance into a testosterone inhanced household. There was no other little girl more wanted or more loved than Emma.
Emma was the best baby. Always content. She never really fussed and she had already become the light of her mommy and daddy's eyes. The night she left our family was like any other night. Daddy put her to sleep on his chest, and then put her to bed. She just never woke up to us again.
I am neither Emma's momma or daddy, but Emma's momma is my best friend and I loved her (as I do all James and Belinda's children) like my own. She was and will always be our beautiful angel.
Emma may be gone from our arms but she will never be gone from our hearts. We love you baby girl!! Always!!
I thought of you and closed my eyes and prayed to God today.
I asked what makes a Mother, and I know I heard him say.
"A Mother has a baby, this we know is true"
But God can you be a Mother, when your baby's not with you?
"Yes, you can", he replied, with confidence in his voice,
"I give many women babies, when they leave is not their choice.
Some I send for a lifetime, and others for a day.
And some I send to feel your womb, but there's no need to stay"
I just don't understand this God, I want my baby here.
He took a breath and cleared his throat, and then I saw a tear.
"I wish I could show you, what your child is doing today.
If you could see your child smile, with other children and say...
"We go on earth to learn our lessons, of love and life and fear.
My Mommy loved me so much, I got to come straight here
I feel so lucky to have a Mom, who had so much love for me.
I learned my lessons very quickly, my Mommy set me free.
I miss my Mommy oh so much, but I visit her each day.
When she goes to sleep, on her pillow's where I lay.
I stroke her hair and kiss her cheek, and whisper in her ear.
Mommy don't be sad today, I'm your baby and I'm here"
"So you see dear sweet one, your children are okay.
Your babies are here in my home, and this is where they will stay.
They'll wait for you with me, until your lessons are through.
And on the day that you come home, they'll be at the gates for you.
So now you see what makes a Mother, It's the feeling in your heart.
It's the love you had so much of, right from the very start.
Though some on earth may not realize, until their time is done.
Remember all the love you have, and know that you are
a special Mom...
