Today on the day our heavenly Father sent His only Son, born in a manager on this Christmas night. Was all for us, was all for you, as Savior who is Christ the Lord. Sent with knowing that this Son would die on the cross for our sins, and He would prepare a place for us. Though you are in that prepared place we still miss you here on earth. I do find comfort in that knowing that you are safe in His arms, and honoring and worshipping Him. What He did for us, so we could all have eternal life is amazing love. I still miss your beautiful face, I think of you often, I cry, I laugh, I pray, I know God is merciful and promises to forgive. The covenant He has made with us helps me get through the painful days without you my darling girl. It’s been a year of up and downs, but what’s really important is growth, closer to God. As He reveals Himself more to me, I can only imagine as the song says, what it must be like for you. We miss our Buddy who died this year and we miss you who died over 5 and ½ years ago. Kelsey speaks of you often and always with a smile on her face. Tom will comfort me when I am down and I found some things that were special to me this last month, and he knows how I feel about the grief and missing you. Sanford is tucked on my bed now and I finally found that necklace. I love you my darling Lizabeth. Rest in peace until we meet again. My love for you is strong and my faith in God stronger.
Dear Lizabeth, I find myself thinking about you often, someday more than others, but today I am thinking about you and how much I wish you were here with me today. On this fifth anniversary of your death, I miss you more than ever. No parent wakes up thinking this will be the day my child dies. You get up with the hope and promise that your smiling face will be there greeting you each day, with the struggles of the past nowhere in sight. A new day comes and there is renewed hope. This day five years ago, I had renewed hope, but our Lord and Savior had other plans for you and Ej. I vividly remember this day as it will always be burned into my conscious about the hope and dreams we had about you and that child. My fears became more evident throughout that day as your body began to lose precious vitals. Grandma and I prayed over you, with you and for you. We wanted you to survive. We wanted to meet your child. We felt hopeless as the doctors worked feverishly over you and Ej, and we saw the end coming near, though we always thought you would somehow pull through. We never thought we would actually lose you this day five years ago. Your sister calls you darling and speaks about you nearly every day. Kelsey sometimes cries when she misses you and we try to comfort her, but we find comfort in the Lord Jesus Christ, that he keeps His promises and that you are joyful with Ej in heaven. We believe this because not only of His promise and the covenant he made with us many years ago, but the promise that all who believes will have eternal life. We know you were studying the bible and I still am reading yours, and though it is getting worn, I cherish that bible I found in your possessions. It does bring me peace knowing that you were attempting to know God and making efforts to develop a strong and lasting bond with Him. I read a passage that our Lord and Savior takes those who need Him most and spares them from any pain and agony. I believe the Lord spared you that day, knowing your body could no longer last here on this earth. I pray about it often, that the Lord spared you from the evil temptations of this earth and took you to His heavenly Kingdom, prepared a place for you and there you rejoice in Him all days, and that your thoughts are no longer earthly, but spiritually driven. My thoughts of you today are those of a blessing, but also pain and grief as five years ago, when you left his earth, we would no longer see you face-to-face until we meet again in heaven. I look forward to the day God prepares that place for me so I can see you and Ej again. It is what keeps me going every day, having the knowledge and strength to carry on and take care of your sister. I am hoping you would be proud on my accomplishments and would rejoice in how we found the Lord again after your death. With him we find peace. God is merciful, loving and forgiving, and I know in my heart you are meant to be with Him. He is all powerful and knowing, and never makes mistakes, so my trust in Him is what I hold onto each day. I just wanted you to know that you are not forgotten, but loved, cherished, and deeply missed. Rest in peace my darling Lizabeth. I love you so very much and my heart aches for you today, and every day, but especially today. I miss you, wish I could wrap you in my arms, but that is the Lord’s job now and He does it with grace, amazing love and everlasting joy. He chose you to be with Him, and that is a blessing, as we know your days are much different than earth days and that you are in peace and living with Him in his glory. I love you Lizabeth, today and always.
Told me who I am ..I am yours….. Lizabeth JoeRae Comfort from the Lord Jesus Christ who sent his only Son to deliver us from sin has saved you. Precious, lucky, you, who are in the living word with Him and no pain, no sorrow, just pure joy. He commands the density. I will see you again in eternal heaven. The day that happens, I am so prepared for your face and the joy of seeing you again. I am confused by the words I receive from God in the scripture, however, I am confident that he brought you to a better place. I am searching those words and find peace, joy and love with the Lord. I cannot tell you how much I miss you every day, though I find peace and comfort with guidance from God. Let the entire world know that Jesus saves, my darling. We have been chosen, even hand-picked by the Holy Lord, to be in His kingdom. How joyous is that to know that He sent his only Son, as Himself, to save us. What a miracle he has done for us and I am certain He has the power and the glory to unite us once again. Studying the bible I am finding that He has the ultimate power, and I have to marvel in this unique giving that I am still working on comprehending. Basking in the glory must be so amazing. God loves you my child and I know that he has chosen you to be with Him now. I miss you every day, my darling daughter. I have a lot of guilt over what I was not able to do for you at the time, but God is so amazing, powerful, awesome, I fall to my knees and say “You are amazing God,,” and that He has you in His hands, therefore, I find comfort that the Lord is all knowing. Finding love, joy, and peace knowing that He has chosen you too is beautiful. You were made for than this entire world. You are treasured, you are sacred you are His. I love you my darling.
Happy 30th birthday my darling Liz. Of course I think about you each and every day though change happens and rejoicing on this day of remembering you is bittersweet. I long to see your face and hear your voice, to see your smile, to touch your hand, though our Lord and Savior has chosen you to be with him, so how can I be so sad? How glorious is that he chose you to be with Him? Yes, changes are happening as I journey through life and understanding the Lord and all his mercy, he has forgiven me of my sins and washed away all your pain and for that I am humbled and thankful. Healing comes through prayer and God has provided me with a direct line of communication to help me through days like today. We will fish today and toss flowers in the water in your name, as we do each year on your birthday where you enjoyed summers at Pike. It will be with joy and tears that we celebrate this day, knowing you are with the Lord and not with us, so my darling Lizabeth, I love you today and always. You are at peace in His arms and the comfort that brings me is bountiful. I am proud to have called you my daughter and blessed be the name of the Lord, His glorious Name. Jesus cradles you and EJ embraced in His arms with love and healing. Amen! I love you, I miss you, I pray for you and someday, we will see each other face-to-face with our Lord reigning high in the heavens we sing glory to His name. Thank you God for the 25 years you blessed me with this beauty of a child. Rest in peace my love.
Another year has come and gone. Four years ago we watched you slip away from us, desperate to hang on to you and EJ, our worst fears came true and away you went, lost to us forever. The things that have changed over this past year are that missing you is natural because I am human and I am sinful. The Lord gave you to me and he took you away. I can rejoice the peace knowing that Jesus Christ Our Lord and Savior died on Calvary to save us from our sins. You, my precious are where we all what to be. We all want to go to heaven and you made it. You are a bright and shining star that the Lord handpicked to join him in his heavenly Kingdom. It is special that to be a chosen one, to be able to be free from pain, unrest, no more sorrow, only joy. The love between you and your Lord has become evident to me over the years and I do not have to be as sad because I know you are with him and celebrating every day the love you have for Christ and the Spirit lives within you and we will be reunited one day. My faith is growing stronger as my journey here on earth is still progressing and I am learning about the Lord, Jesus life here on earth and why he suffered to save us. I listen to many songs about His love and how the wonders of his death and the glory of his rising prepare us for what is to come. That my darling is coming into His kingdom, washed away from every sin, made new and whole, honest and young, beautiful and free. His loving promise comes true every day. I fear no evil anymore as God’s word has taught me that His rod and staff will comfort me and he will be with me all the days of my life. I look forward to the day we will meet again in Paradise. His loving kindness will bring us together in joyful reunion and we will praise the name of Jesus and the Father forever and ever. I miss you my love, but I know in my heart, you are where you need to be and the Lord does not make mistakes. I love you and I think of you every day. Today especially because it was such a hard time to see you leave us. I begged you to stay, but it was not meant to be. I will try harder to live my life better and to become a person you can be proud of. I love you my darling. Every day, though missing you with painful grief, I will get through this knowing more than I did a year ago. This song, I sing along reminds me of you. You are sacred you are loved you are beautiful The days will come when you don't have the strength When all you hear is you're not worth anything Wondering if you ever could be loved And if they truly saw your heart they'd see too much You're beautiful You're beautiful You are made so much more than all of this You're beautiful You're beautiful You are treasured, You are sacred, You are His You're beautiful I'm praying that you have the heart to find Cause you are more than what is hurting you tonight For all the lies you've held inside so long And they are nothing in the shadow of the cross You're beautiful You're beautiful You are made so much more than all of this You're beautiful You're beautiful You are treasured, You are sacred, You are His You're beautiful Before you ever took a breath Long before the world began Of all the wonders He possessed There was one more precious Of all the earth and skies above You're the one He madly loves Enough to die You're beautiful You're beautiful In His eyes You're beautiful You were meant for so much more than all of this You're beautiful You are treasured, You are sacred, You are His You're beautiful You're beautiful You're meant for so much more than all of this You're beautiful You're beautiful You are treasured, You are sacred, You are His
Babest, I was dreaming alot of you again. when i wake and i realize it wasnt realize its so crushing everytime. alot of times i think of my black cat luna as a reincarnation of you, really i am not that deluded, but its fun to think because she is so smart. you were so smart. i wish i could have found the key to stem your recklessness though. even so, i heard something the other day "the people that are not in your future where just not meant to be in your future" and it makes sense, and i think how there is a reason some people live to 25 and some to 85. its Gods will and i cant forget that. what i dont understand is why my brother fell into a trap too, and i thought for a while your leaving would make sense; you know, like have a purpose to save others and that consoled me for awhile. but alas, as you and Ian both left on the same terms he was not saved by your ultimate sacrifice. I remember how the two of you didnt get along well in this world, and now your in the same place equal, wherever heaven may be. But your loss and the loss of our son was far more devistaing then anyone else i could lose, so there is no fright for me. You had so much respect from so many people, you were so intelligent in so many ways and you where my very greatest friend..... anyway,now, I've really been working hard now to build up cedit, so i can house my daughter and our collective 4 cats. Also, my girl"friend" and her littarly fatherless daughter have begun to grow on me but she(Becci) is indifferent to me (don't get jealous, there is no sanctity as was our bed, it is quite just a living ariangement). I couldnt stand losing my cats, my "guys" and "buds' i call them, they have taken on the role of my closest friends, and i cannot therefore let my daughter lose hers, now that Trisha's side of the family is doubtful to live much longer, and she has had law and men and work trouble, and you can imagine why. day after day and year after year the stark reality of a word without you is becomeing so raw. I yearn for to hear your voice. Oh the things we could have done if we could have defeated our demons! So much has changed now, so much has changed now. The people we knew have drifted away, the world seems a place of no fun, and i do not see sunrises. when the sun comes up it merely means the realization that today is the present, and I just dont have the excitement to think that you are alive and in this world.. (that's My girl, out there weaving in traffic at speeds that pin one back in the seat, never missing a beat, my girl that can wrap any man around her finger, that can do anything she puts her mind too!) How can she die? remember when we talked, about 6 months before you left, how I couldn't imagine someone so strong ever dying?, and you seemed to be tickled by that.....how could i be so arrogant, and even doubt God's power to do his will? But someone so extraordinary would not be left behind, but be free, by his grace you accepted christ and also your fate, you accepted by your strength. always, you will be, MY most special person, your Eric bear, your babest P.S.NUBU Babest, rocket snugs,side kisses
You would have loved if i had something witty and poetic to say, but words fail me now, to express how much I miss you. You are gone and i still feel alone. Would you believe I have 2 cats now? and I have a new hobby in computers? I'm seeing a girl but we are really just friends. Its cold here and I want to hold you more then anything
Three and one half, 3 ½, 3.5, years, it doesn’t matter how I write it; it has been another six months. Another milestone, another memory, another day, gone, without you, my daughter. So much has happened since you left us and I wanted to share with you how much I still miss you. We took many trips this year and adventured I wish we were sharing with you and EJ. One of the most memorable was our trip to Arkansas to see Grandpa Joe’s family. Desiree is all grown up and has her own children. You would have loved the beauty there, the natural outdoors, peaceful and dense forests, with lots of wildlife. I thought how much you would have enjoyed the simple life they live down there and I thought it might have brought you peace to visit. Involved more in the church than we ever were and it’s a comfort to me, as I know in my heart, you are with Jesus. He wraps his arms around you and EJ and keeps you safe from this world. He loves you so much and he knows we will meet in heaven again someday. Until then, I still grieve your loss, the life you could have had and the memories of you and Kelsey. She is growing up too and you would be pleased with her. She is fabulous and she learned a lot of that from her big sissy. I don’t feel like I am as much of a mess do to your quick departure from this earth, because I know that you are with our Lord and Savior. As hard as it is not to have you here, it is wonderful to know you are there. We are all waiting for that day, and working on making it there by living a better life. I know the comfort that you have is what we all strive to get, by living by His word and being His feet and hands. Loving peace and joy be with you while you enjoy residence in his Holy Kingdom. He called you home by name and He lets me know you are okay by the signs He gives us through our daily lives. This day, as every day, I miss you, and I think of you and I pray. My heart is with you and EJ and I live to be with you when He calls my name. Until then, I keep seeking comfort in the name of the Lord Jesus, our Savior. I can only imagine what it must be like for you and for that, I am grateful. I love you my darling.
Three years ago today the Lord called you home. Even today as I think about you and I mourn the loss of you on this earth and I grieve to see you lovely face, my heart is heavy. I miss you today as I do everyday, but the milestones make it difficult to go about the daily activities. We celebrate your life as we have come the know God, knowing where you are brings me comfort. The message today was that this is our temporary home and don’t take up residency here, but prepare to go to our permanent home where you now reside. I picture your lovely face, your smile your laughter and the way you spoke and your mannerisms, and I smile knowing you brought joy to many. I know you had pain and suffering in your life too and the Lord in all his wisdom, took you, and ended any suffering you had, but left us with an empty hole, unable yet to fill. We are surrounded by our family and friends who know us, what we may feel, and those who knew you remember you too. We will fish today, wishing you were here with us, and we will speak your name, and we will talk about how you are now with Jesus. Heaven must be good for you, since I haven’t heard from you, I know that he is taking good care of you and your at peace. As long as God continues to allow my journey here on earth, I will remember the impact you had on my life and I am thankful for the time He gave me to enjoy your company and have you as my daughter. I love you my darling Liz, and I miss you today, more than other days, but still everyday, you are on my mind. We will meet again in paradise, my child, my friend, my daughter. Three years, we have lived without you; only your memory and photos remind us of your life and your love. I hold those close to my heart and pray I can become the servant God wants me to be, so I can see you and EJ again someday. Rest in peace my darling. I love you.
I woke this morning knowing it might be difficult to get through yet another holiday without you. Upon waking I was thinking of a trip I am planning with your sister and quickly realized you weren’t coming with us, yet again. As the tears poured down my face, I hugged Buddy and thoughts of trips with you came flooding back to me. The joy I remember on your face each time we embarked on a new adventure together, you were always thrilled no matter where we were going. Today, you would be my helper, my friend and my first daughter. Now 2 1/2 years after you left us on this earth, I still grieve for you. My heart is in sore as I have to journey this day without you in my life, but still forever grateful God gave me 25 years. You will be missed today as always, I miss you my darling. Love Mom.
What can I say to you today? It is your birthday darling Lizabeth. I am proud of you for your accomplishments and I want to tell you that I am with you girl. I want you to know that you are the previous darling I miss so much. I would have taken you shopping today, as I always did, with Kit and we would go to the lake and relax out there and shone some sunshine. I miss these days girl. I know you would have wanted to fish and maybe we could have if I had a pole. The time has passed by so quickly and I still remember you as you are today. I want you back in my life and I know that wont happen but I still care about you. I wish for you and EJ the best life possible and I wanted to be a part of it. Lizabeth forgive me for not being there for you and know I wanted to have you and your child. My guilt will precede the life I have now and I know you are with the Lord. GOD praise that happening. I can only know you are with him and that you are pleasantly happy. I miss you darling, rest in peace.
My darling Liz, it has been two years since you left your home on earth to walk with the almighty Lord. I can’t tell you what unbearable pain I feel without you in my life. I mostly try to remember the good times we had as a family, as mother and daughter and you as Kit’s Sissy. I can say without a doubt in my mind that I admire your strength, as what I thought were your weaknesses, were truly your strong spirit and your passion for life. You’re laid back style, made me think you were not sincere about things, but amazingly, you just never sweated the small stuff. As much as I wanted you to be like me, I truly wish I could be more like you. You are an amazing woman, daughter and sister, and my live is not the same. As much as you didn’t need me in your life, I desperately needed you. The day you were born was one of the happiest days of my life. I remember your beautiful blue eyes blinking at me as they laid you next to me. From that moment on I always loved your eyes and your infectious smile. Seeing your face always brought me joy. I was proud of your accomplishments and I wanted so much more for you. I didn’t tell you how much I was looking forward to being a grandmother to EJ and what a wonderful Mother you would make. I know he is in your arms and you both are in paradise with God and that brings some relief to know that you have no more pain and that your souls are in an everlasting love and relationship with Him. Some of the things that make me happy as I remember your life were that you would enjoy the holidays so much. Pumpkin carving, opening Christmas presents and our trips to the lake of course were always precious to me. I was always so happy to see you, and when your car was in the drive, I would be so excited that you decided to grace us with your presence. Kit would say, Sissy is here! So many funny things you did as a child and as a young lady made me laugh. I will never forget when you drew eyebrows on Snapper. We laughed so hard. I always thought it was funny when you slept, however, scared I was that you wouldn’t be breathing when you so sweetly slept with your head tucked under the covers. The cute way you cuddled the Buddle. I miss the work lunches we shared. You had a gift for making people smile with your sweet little ways, like the tilt of your head when you smiled and were truly happy. I admired the way you were with your sister. You were never jealous of her, only deep profound love for her and her needs always came before your own. You helped me raise her and for that she is the young lady she is today. Your impact on our lives is never forgotten, my love. As I remember your life today, I will grieve, with a heavy heart. I will think of you as I always did, as my daughter, precious and strong willed. Your intense love for animals and those who were young or old handicapped or weak. You had a gift for those people less fortunate than yourself, and wanted to make an impact on their lives and you did. I am grateful for the twenty five years God had given me to be with you and I will always think of you every day with a smile on my face knowing you were a blessing to me and those around you. I love you my darling and I miss you every day. May you rest in peace and while you bask in the Glory of God and His almighty Kingdom. He prepared a place for you as He promised. We will be together again someday and when we do, it will be again, the happiest day of my life. Knowing where you and EJ are brings me comfort. I love you Lizabeth. Mom
Sissys Song. We miss you young lady. You willl always be sissy to us. I miss you my darling.
I was there the moment she was born and also the moment she passed away (something I am not able to share). I remember this beautiful baby that I carried around & sang to which continued until she could stand on my feet and dance with me. I remember the cute little doll running through my parking lot in her diaper & red tennis shoes wearing only those two items. We went to the zoo on the first date I had with my husband. She loved "our first date" as she called it. She proudly rode on his shoulders wearing his big felt Stetson hat. She called him "that man" and continued to until the day we married. She ran up to the altar,jumped in his arms and loudly said "Hooray, Now I can call you Grandpa". When I bought my dog Barney she asked if I had bought her a puppy. I had to tell her we could share him. When naming him took all night, we gave up. The very next day she put her little 3yr.old hands on her hips & said "His name's Barney, that's it , no more names". It stuck. That was before Dave & I married. Later while visiting, she yelled at Grandpa not to come by the window to see the naked hookers across the street. Then proceeded to inform us what a hooker was. She was seven ! My husband was as stunned as I was ! We had a great time one Christmas vacation when she had all her friends from our church call their parents to say that they could stay a couple more days--then she told us. I remember all the hours /days we spent making Christmas cookies. Later during a sad time in her life she wrote me a story about it probably thinking about happier times as I now must do. She was looking at my doll collection and telling me "Soon you will have a real baby to hold". That never happened. I wear a rose inside a teardrop necklace as a memorial which will go to my daughter when I'm gone. It says it all about my feelings on her passing. The rose is the symbol of undying love. When I get to heaven I want to see her at the gate to greet me then & only then will I have peace at her passing.
Lizabeth and all her fun with Christmas and Buddy and her darling Sissy Kelsey. She loved going to Catalina Island and had fun there with her extended family, Kathy & Linda.
Lizabeth's Last Christmas. We had so much fun together and we enjoyed each others company. I miss you so much.
I remember Liz's laugh. I remember her smile. I do miss her. Even though she was not around me anymore, I always wished her well. Its does not seem fair or right. The only thing I can think to cling to is what my Mom told me whrn my dad passed away. God must have needed her. For what we will not know until he calls for us. But he needed her for something very important or he would not have taken her from everyone here who loved and cared for her. Peace be with you Lizzy. Peace be with you Kim and your family. I send my love and thoughts and prayers all to you.
We took a heap of family photos through the years. Most our out on our deck, while we celebrated the holidays. We miss you Liz. Our deck is not the same without you my dear, darling daughter. May the Lord celebrate your life as an angel now.

We cannot believe you are gone. We want to seee you again. May the Lord be with you and Bless you with his kind heart. Your soul rests in peace we know.
To everyone out there with a Buick with a baby seat in the back seat, I envy you. Remember to praise God for every breath and every moment of every day,and for every gallon of gas you have the privelidge to burn as you travel every mile that the road will take you with the one you love. I could never forget when we reach the lake, never mind the poles, watch instead her blue eyes as she dictates our favorite book, until the words become too hard to see in the setting sun.
I'm sorry to say I didn't know Elizabeth. I may have only met her on one or two occassions. I do know that a daughter is a beautiful thing and to loose her would be unbearable. As a mother, my thoughts are with you Kim, Tom and Kelsey.
Lizabeth you will always be my baby. I miss you so much my darling girl. I know you are in paradise now, but I still miss you with me here on earth. We love you so much darling and miss you in our world. We know you are with the Lord now and are at peace. May God rest your soul.
You are with the Lord my darling, but we have you in our special place in our home, as you should be. May you rest in peace, as we miss you each day, every day, forever.
Dasko Family, Watching Liz grow from an infant to adulthood was an amazing experience, so many fond memories how can one pick? A truly beautiful child my niece was! Such a tragic loss for this entire family. She will be greatly missed by us. Being her uncle and having the privilege to baby-sit and play with her will be in my heart forever. If I had to pick my favorite memory, it would have to be at a wedding when she asked me to please dance with her. She was so small and she stood on my shoes as we danced and then she asked to be held in my arms as we danced more. Thank you GOD for letting me know such a sweet child as Liz. Love, Uncle Jeff My memories of Liz are of a warm and friendly smile. I didn't get to know her all that well through the years. I await the day that we meet up again in heaven and I can learn more about you and meet your sweet precious baby. Love, Aunt Michelle
