Girl! Not too long ago I was in the yard and was in a pile of clovers... And I thought of you. I have never forgotten the day we were talking on the phone, and you were out in the yard. I asked what you were doing and you said looking for 4 leaf clovers, I laughed and said "I've never found one, I'm starting to think they aren't real." And you said "Ha! I found one... I'm gonna find you one now..." Well the next day at school, you walked up to me and in your hand was 2 four leaf clovers. And you smiled at me and put one in my hand and said "Here, now we both have one, and are lucky..." Thank you Morgaen, for being my friend, & being just what you gave me, hard to find & lucky to have... a best friend longer than forever. I have not gone a day without thinking about you, I miss you so much & wish I could talk to you now... I love you Doll Face!

I just want to thank you for the love and support all of our friends and family have shown us in the past year.

Also to let you all know that we could not get notes out to every one due to the over whelming amount of cards, letters,flowers and donations. Thanks for me, Glen, Chrissy, Josh and the rest of the family.

Morgaen is not gone, she will always be with us. We still have our memories of all of our good times with her and her beautiful pictures.





We love you all,

AUNT T., GLEN AND CHRISSY,

THE REASON THIS MESSAGE IS SO LATE IS BECAUSE I JUST FOUND OUT ABOUT THIS WEBSITE FOR MORGAEN. THERE ARE NO WORDS THAT I CAN SAY TO EXPRESS THE HEARTACHE WE HAVE ALL BEEN GOING THROUGH BY TEH LOSS OF MORGAEN. THERE ARE SO MANY WORDS THAT CAN DESCRIBE OUR BEAUTIFUL ANGEL MORGAEN, I CANT EVEN NAME THEM ALL. SHE WAS TRULY A WONDERFUL PERSON, A GREAT FRIEND AND DAUGHTER. AUNT T AND GLEN, YA'LL DID A GREAT JOB IN RAISING HER AND SHE LOVED YA'LL MORE THAN ANYTHING. CHRISSY SHE CARED ABOUT AND LOVED YOU SO MUCH, I CANT EVEN TELL HOW MUCH BUT I KNOW YOU KNOW THAT. SHE ALWAYS TALKED ABOUT YOU AND WORRIED ABOUT YOU AND WANTED TO MAKE SURE YOU WERE DOING EVERYTHING RIGHT. BUT JUST REMEMBER SHE STILL WITH YOU ALWAYS AND FOREVER AND NO ONE CAN EVER REPLACE HER IN YOUR HEART. I HAVE KNOWN MORGAEN FOR A FEW YEARS NOW AND SHE WAS ONE OF TEH BEST FRIENDS A PERSON COULD HAVE, I KNOW I WILL NEVER FORGET HER. BUT NOW I LOOK AT IT AS GOD NEEDED ANOTHER ANGEL SO HE TOOK THE BEST ONE. AUNT T., GLEN, AND CHRISSY, I LOVE YA'LL SO MUCH AND IF YOU NEED ANYTHING YOU KNOW HOW TO GET IN TOUCH WITH ME.
By: Haley Heft Apr 14, 2005
Dear Gillis Family, When I think of Morgaen the first thing that comes to mind is how beautiful

and kind she was, not just to me but everyone. If I went to a party that I didnt know many people

there she would come and say hi and make me feel comfortable and I always remembered that cause

it was so thoughtful. It took me a long time to understand why she was taken from us, but now

I know its because they needed someone like her in heaven. Yall did a hell of a job raising her

and she will never be forgotten. Best wishes, Love Haley Heft

Aunt"T",Glen,Chrissy,



There is nothing I can say or do to change what has happened to this little town. She has been my "BEST FRIEND" since 2nd grade. I never thought that this would happen our senior year, but we will get through it sooner or later. She adored her parents more than anything and Chrissy she loved you. Morgaen was one person I have always gotten along with, we never had a fight or disagreed on anything.She would always make me fill better about myself or tell me everything was going to be okay. Morgaen could always make someone have a good day no matter what. Ya'll have been a big part of my life for so many years and I wouldn't change anything about it. Aunt "T" you have been like a second mother to me and I still want you, Glen, and Chrissy in my life. All of your kids love ya'll more than anything (all 20 of us).. Morgaen was always the strong one now it is our turn to be strong.I LOVE YA'LL VERY VERY MUCH!!!I am here if ya'll need anything just like everyone else has said..

Love Always and Forever,

Kati Case

To Morgaen's Family: When you think about how sad you are for your loss, I want you to forget that feeling and think about how lucky you are that you are lucky enough to be the people that brought that beautiful girl into the world and had the privilege to raise her. I was very good friends with your daughter in Junior High, and I cannot tell you what those 2 years of friendship with her meant to me. She had a heart as big as her smile and I miss her dearly. We never stopped being friends, but it's amazing how you never see people you used to know so well once you get to High School. I wish we had stayed close, but we grew apart. I think total in our 4 years in high school, I think I saw her 2 times. The last time was on the Monday or Tuesday -- can't remember --before the accident. I'm an office aide, and she came into the office to get something. I hugged her, and we did that whole "catch up on old times because I haven't seen you in 4 years" thing, and I got her to sign my senior book. I am so glad I did get the chance to see her again, to be reminded of the good people that are in our lives. I loved her so much, and I'm sure she's watching down on us now, missing us almost as much as we miss her.

My condolances,

Lauren Vick

Dear "Aunt T", Glen and Chrissy,

I will always remember sitting in the hallway between the A and B halls, every morning before school with Morgean, Sarina, Jessica, C.J., Josh, and everyone else....mainly I remember one thing that will never leave my mind was how every time Chris and a few of the other guys would make fun of me for being over weight and how Morgean would always tell them how it was rude. Morgean is the sweetest person that I have and will ever meet in my entire life. Even better....Josh and Jessica's birthday party at y'all's house....that was a blast! Morgean is in your heart.

With Love, Kelly Dyess

Gillis Family,



I'm pretty sure you won't really remember me, but I once worked at the little store there in Montgomery, L&M Grocery and knew you all from coming in the store nearly daily. I had moved away from Montgomery in 1998, but I remember you all so well. I hadn't seen Morgan since she was just a little girl. I am so very sorry for your loss and you all are in my prayers. My heart goes out to you all.



My deepest sympathies,

The Gillis Family,

As alot have said I did not get the chance to know Morgaen well. I did see her in the hall everyday. Her beautiful face and smile. If i was having a bad day when I saw her smile it put a smile on my face. I will miss her wonderful smile. We little knew that morning, that God was going to call your name. In life we loved you dearly, In death we do the same. It broke our hearts to lose you, for apart of us went with you, the day God called you home. You left us peaceful meomories, your love is still our guide; and though we cannot see you, you are always at our side. Our family chain is broken, and nothing seems the same; but as GOD calls us one by one, The Chain will link again. When my 19 month cousin died two years ago on May fourth This poem was given to my aunt by a friend and I wanted to pass it on to yall. My thoughts and prayers go out to yall. If anyone of you guys needs to talk feel free to caIl or e-mail me. I love you guys very much!!

Glen, Aunt T, and Chrissy,

I just want all of ya'll to know how much Morgaen ment to me and my mom and Ronnie. We loved her (and still do) so very much. I can remeber the first time I met all of ya'll in the 7th grade. Here I am a junior in highschool and have so many memories of ya'll. SOO MANY!!!! Morgaen was always the highlight of my day. I could have the worst one and call her in the evening and she could say just one sentence and make it all better!! Gillis family ya'll have been there for me and now its my time to be there for ya'll. If anyone needs anything just call me I will be there no matter what. I love every single one of ya'll! My prayers are with ya'll!

Love Ya'll

Dear Mr. and Mrs. Gillis -



We came to know Morgaen via our frequent, weekly visits to King's Cafe. We were the couple that came in with our paint clothes on because we were refurbishing a 100 year old house. Morgaen always greeted us with a warm, welcoming smile....asked us how the house was coming along and how we were doing. She remembered the little things about us - like how John loved all sausage and to keep the coffee coming - silly things, really, in retrospect, but she made us feel important whenever we walked into King's. We only just learned of her passing last night (3/9) after reading the article in the paper. We were so hoping in wasn't "our Morgaen" and were literally heartbroken to see her picture in another newspaper article online. Had we known, we would have been there last weekend supporting you and your Family. I am so sorry that we were not there for her and you. Morgaen was an absolutely beautiful girl - both inside and out. Everyone has repeated the same sentiments over and over in these pages filled with love as to just how special Morgaen was to all of us....whether you were her longtime friend or a new face at King's. Being a new Mama myself, I just can't imagine the grief you are going through. Mear words just don't seem to do justice to Morgaen. I can only hope that my meager words will help to convey our heartfelt sympathy for your Family as you travel this very difficult journey. We pray that God will wrap your Family in His loving arms now and in the very difficult days ahead. ~ John and Sheena Bevil
By: Renea Bryan Mar 10, 2005
To all members of Morgaen's Family:



Each day I miss her more, she would walk in the door at 11:00 everyday and we would exchange hello's and I would ask her how her day was going. Depending on the answer, I would give advice, or laugh, or just listen. We shared many moments together in the 3 years we worked together. Sometimes we would laugh so hard, we made work, not work at all just a good time with friends. Morgaen got in my heart and now there is a sadness there that I wish could be mended. Thank you for sharing her with us, all the times you had to bring her to work at 7:00am and all the late nights that Kim had to sit and wait on Morgaen before she got her drivers license. I just wanted you to know how much Morgaen Means to all us and how much we miss her. I know with each tribute you read, your pride grows and your heart heals just a little bit more. I know everyone has offered to help if you need anything but we really do all mean that. Just Call!

Dear Glen, Kim and Chrissy,



My thoughts and prayers are with the three of you everday. There are no words to describe the sorrow I feel for the three of you. Morgaen was soo special. A beautiful daughter/sister and role model for Chrissy. Morgaen left ehind wonderful memories for us to cherish; Morgaen was just too special to stay with us here on this earth. Only time will heal the sorrow and emptiness. During that time if you need anthing, call me.

To Aunt T, Glen, and Chrissy:

Morgaen was (and still is) a very special person to me. Over the last 4 years we have become very good friends. i considered her to be my best friend for many reasons. She was always there for me and always gave me someone to confide in. We have so many great memories together, picking just one would be hard. when i found out about her accident, it hit me like a ton of bricks. Although i could never understand the amount of pain you as parents are going through, i do know that i've lost someone that cannot be replaced. We had so much fun together , i feel as though there never be anymore times that could compare to those. I will take time for everyone to heal, but Morgaen would want us to go forward for her. She was always a very strong person and she would want us to be the same. I still consider ya'll family and if you need anything please let me know. *sarina*
By: Cody Simon Mar 9, 2005
Mr. and Mrs. Gillis,

As so many have previously stated, your daughter was a very special person. I know for a fact that I am not alone when I say that I feel very privlidged to have known her for the time that I was able to. It almost feels as if we have all been touched by an angel during the times we all got to know her no matter how deep our friendships were. There have been many moments within this last seven days that I have found myself thinking about your beautiful daughter, our sweet friend. I will never forget seeing the genuine way she treated people that she had never before seen, it never looked like she ever had a "bad" day when she would waitress @ King's or deal with our school days. The world needs more people like her. If you guys ever need anything, I am positive that this town is here for you. I know that Morgaen would do the same for us.

Aunt T, Glen, & Chrissy:

Morgaen was a wonderful person, a great friend, a awesome sister, and unforgetable daughter. I don't go a day without thinking about her and I miss her more and more everyday!

Aunt T: She was your life and your bright starlight. She was a wonderful daughter who loved you very much and was so proud of the fact that she looked just like her beautiful mom. If I wouldn't have met her and became friends with her when I was 6 then I wouldn't have had the oppurtunity I do now. I have lost a very special person in my life. You are a wonderful mother and she will always be with you no matter what!

Glen: Anyone that Morgaen came across and befriended she made a huge impact on. She loved you more than life itself it seemed like. She made everyone jelious of her beauty outside and especially in! She was a smart, talented, awesome person to which u should ever be so proud of her!

Chrissy: I know that you have lost no only your big sister but also your best friend. Never forget that Morgaen loved spending time with you and you were so special to her. Keep your head up and still talk to her when you need her because she will be there for you no matter what for the rest of your life.

I love you guys! Aunt T your like another mom to me ! Take care and Morgaen is forever watching all of us. Lets make her so proud!

Love Always:

Connie

I am so sorry for your loss. I am a friend of Barry Ducharme. He sent me the information about your daughter. I just wanted you to know that I pray for both of you - being a mother myself of 4. Your daughter was so beautiful, I am sure she is in heaven with the angels. If there is anything I can do to help in your loss, please write. My prayers are with you.

Morgean was a beautful person. You couldnt help but love her. I remember when we had piano lessons at Mrs. Lum's and how we'd sit and talked while we waited to go in. Heaven has another wonderful angel who will always watch over ya'll. Forever in my prayers.
By: Halie Lewis Mar 8, 2005
Mr. and Mrs. Gillis, Chrissy and family,

i got the privilege to know Morgaen from Kara Wade and Sarina Holden. To me, they were my closest fiends. Whenever Sarina and I would do something together.. Morgaen and Kara were pretty much with us. I met Morgaen a few years back. She is one of the sweetest and most generous people i met. My prayers are with your family. This has been a great loss, but think about it, Morgaen wouldnt want us to be sulking in tears over her,this isnt the last time we will see her. God bless your whole family. Morgaen, see ya at the pearly gates babe! I love ya'll. Halie Lewis
By: Brittany Carlos Mar 7, 2005
Mr & Mrs Gillis,

As many others have said, I didn't have the opportunity to get close to Morgaen. I had a few classes with her and she always did have a bright smile on her face. You could count on it everyday. That is how I always thought of her. "Bright" Never dull, always had something nice to say or a funny story to tell. My heart goes out to yall. And I will always remember Morgaen. Even if I tried I could never forget her. I love yall.
By: Lance Garris Mar 6, 2005
Dear Mr.& Mrs. Gillis

You may not know me but when I was in Jr. High, Morgaen used to come over to Brandi Jett's house ad we u sed to go ride 4-wheelers all the time and I am glad that I got to know her for that summer, and for the time I knew her was unforgetable. I also hung out with her at Kati Case's house, but I remember her outlook towards people and it was always a positive one, I never heard her talk bad about anyone and if someone talked bad about her it was because something was wrong with them. She had the prettiest smile and if I did'nt know her and I saw that smile on a rainy day it would brighten up quick. When I went to her wreck to see if the fire department needed my help and I saw that it was her I could'nt walk because my legs felt like they would'nt allow me to walk. When I got home that night i read the Bible for the first time. She not only opened doors to me showing me that teenagers are'nt invinsible, she also opened my heart to God and I am glad someone did, I just wish she could be here so our hearts don't feel empty. But one day our hearts will be filled again and we can spend eternity with her and all of our families in Heaven. If your family needs any thing don't hesitate to call or E-mail me.

Sincerely,



Lance Garris

To the Gillis family:



I had the privilege to work with Morgaen for the past 9 months. I do not know y’all personally, yet I feel like I do. Morgaen spoke very highly of y’all. Everyone up at King’s is so devastated over y'alls loss. We feel as if we too have lost a member of our family. I have so many wonderful memories of Morgaen that will always hold a very special place in my heart. She will be forever missed and never forgotten.



With my deepest sympathy,

Dear Mr. and Mrs. Gillis,

You may not know me, but when i think about Morgean i think back to Junior High. I just moved to Montgomery and i was lucky enough to befriend Morgean. She always treated everyone with such true kidness. She was an outstanding person and i grieve with you for your loss. Morgean was a person who was very kind hearted, beautiful ,sincere, intelligent,and the list goes on and on. She will always be remebered.

Chrissy,

You've been my best friend for about 4 years now. You're the one that I could always depend on to have a shoulder to cry on. But now it's my turn to let you lean on me, and I want you to know that I will always be here day and night for you no matter the circumstances. I can't understand you're pain, but I just want to be here to support you through the rough times.

I know I didn't know Morgean well, but the times I was around her were always full of fun! We will always have the awesome memories or her doing our make-up, sharing stories with us, and watching movies in the middle of the night. We'll miss that, but can always recap those times and know she has touched us dearly with her short 17 years.

God needed another angel and everyone knows he couldn't have taken a more wonderful person than Morgean. She will look down upon us all smiling her beautiful smile, knowing how much we miss her. She will always live with us in our thoughts and prayers forever.

I love you Chrissy and hope you get through this, and if you ever need my help I'm always here for you!

I know eveyone is in total shock about the loss of Morgean Gillis.I too am numb,sick,and full of sorrow.It is such a loss for us because Morgean was an emerald butterfly that softly kissed each one of us, that she would come into contact with by just her soft spoken voice,twinkle of her eyes,flowing beautiful blonde hair,and her sweet, caring personality.Whether your a Montgomerian or you just got planted here-you know Morgean Gillis!I have enjoyed doing Morgean's hair for prom several times thru the years...a blast for me since I have 3 boys(Cody and Cory Simon,Garrett),and she made my job soooo easy!She is absolutely stricking!Morgan was just as beautful on the inside as the outside.She had a GLOW to her.She was a pure, sweet,country girl!She loved everyone.She never had a bad thing to say about others.She was liked by everyone she come to know....a true gem!She was an honor student,a very hard worker,responsible,freind,and she loved her family.NO ONE will EVER forget Miss Morgean!She will be deeply missed!!!Morgean Gillis was an Emerald Butterfly for all.Her favorite color was green.How fitting for her since it's a calm,soothing easygoing,relaxed color.Morgean was calm and easygoing too.Maybe since it's just about springtime,everythings turning green,the sun will shine like her sparkling glow and we can have the PEACE in KNOWING how she has DANCED....like an EMERALD BUTTERFLY....once again....

Just like everyone else here, we love you all dearly and our hearts are breaking for you. Please know that we offer all of our sympathy and love and support. She was beautiful and sweet and smart...but the best thing of all was that she loved and was loved by you.

My tribute will be much of the same except, I haven't seen Morgaen in years. My heart hurts deepley for you. I pray that God imbraces you, lends you strength, and peace in time.

To the Gillis Family:

There are no words comforting enough to make a time such as this easy. I did not have the joy of being close to Morgean. However, for the times that she was in my presence, she shined. She was a beautiful person inside and out. When people say that they never saw her without that bright smile, it's the truth. There was not one time that I saw her without it. She will forever be remembered. She touched many lives and will always live within our hearts. Remember that she will always be watching over us as an angel in heaven. May God bless your family. You are in my thoughts and prayers.

I wanted to let you know that you are in my thoughts and prayers. I had the privilege of being Morgaen's third grade teacher. Thank you for that opportunity.

Bo and I have been and will continue praying for you and your family. Please know that we are here for you and willing to help with whatever is needed.

Keep looking up, that's where the answers are,

I can only imagine your pain, but at some level, please know that all of us men who have had the unspeakable privilege of raising daughters stand along side you right now. God bless you my brother.

Dear Mr. and Mrs. Gillis,

Billie and I share your pain. We lost a son 11 years ago to simular circumstances. He was 20 years old and a student at Texas A&M.

There is no way to express to hou how my heart hurts for you all. As one of Morgaen's teachers, I wanted to share with you the impact that Morgaen has made on fellow classmates and faculty at MHS. Without a doubt, comments are the same........your daughter was the most beautiful person - inside and out. She carried a beauty and grace about her and knew no ememies. Everyone admired and looked up to Morgaen, which is a tribute to the job you have done as her parents. You can be proud of her legacy. She was truly loved by many and will be missed. If there is anything that I can do to help you, please don't hesitate to call.

Dear Mr.and Mrs. Gillis and Chrissy,



I am so deeply saddened and sorry for your loss of Morgaen. As Morgaen and now Chrissy's junior high English teacher, I wanted to express the honor and pleasure I have had in teaching them both. Morgaen stands out as one of my stellar students. She was dedicated to all endeavors that she pursued. There was a kindness and gentleness that radiated around her and touched us all. I will remember her always. If there is anything I can do, please don't hesitate to call me.

To the Gillis Family,



I am terribly sorry for the pain that you are having to endure at this time. I remember when Michelle Ducharme & I used to babysit Morgean before Chrissy was born. She was such a precious and sweet little girl. It has been years since I have talked to ya'll but I will never forget running into Morgean in the tanning salon last summer. I knew she was a Gillis because she looked exactly like Kimberly. So I looked at the sign in sheet and saw her name. I was in awe to see what an absolutely beautiful young lady she had grown to be. I can not tell you how my heart hurts for her family and friends. You will remain in my thoughts and prayers; may God comfort and guide you through this very difficult time.



Sincerely,



Kristi Holguin (Hucks)

I am so saddened by the loss of Morgaen. I haven't seen Morgaen since she was a little girl, couldn't believe that she looked just like Kim. I ask about the family when I see Darren and Dana and missed seeing you all last Friday. Your family will be in our thoughts and prayers during this difficult time.

I know there are no words that can be said that will lessen the pain you are feeling. Just know that we have been praying for Morgaen and your family since the tragedy and will continue to do so. Although Ashley, Brandon and I had limited amounts of interaction with Morgaen during her life, the time we did spend with her was enough to allow us to see how truly extraordinary she was. Her sweet disposition, soft and gentle voice, and compassionate heart are just a few of the characteristics that made her shine among others. Morgaen’s inner and outer beauty will stay forever ingrained in our minds and hearts. She was one of God’s greatest creations on earth and will now be one of his most glorious angels in heaven.



God Bless

We love you and you know we are here for you anytime day or night.

Glen, Kim, and Chrissy,

I remember going to the neighbors and playing dress up with Morgaen to get away from the boys as we were growing up. I am extrememly sorry. All of you are in my thoughts and prayers and will be forever. I miss ya'll and want you to know that if you need anything I'm here. I wanted you to have the prayer that my mom recieved when her and my dad lost my brother.

God's Lent Child

"I'll lend you for a little while a child of mine," God said-"For you to love the while she lives. And mourn for when she's dead. It may be one or two years or forty two or three; But will you, till I call her back, take care of her for me? She'll bring her charm's to gladen you and-(should her stay be brief)-You'll have her lovely memories as a solace for your grief. I cannot promise she will stay, since ALL from earth return; But the lessons taught below I want this child to learn. I've looked the whole world over in search for teachers true; and from the things that crowd Life's lane-I have chosen you. Will you give her all your love? Nor think the labor vain? Nor hate me when I come to take this lent child back again?" I fancied that I heard them say "Dear Lord, Thy will be done. For joys The child will bring the risk of grief will run. We will shelter her with tenderness, we'll love her while we may-and for the happiness we've known forever grateful stay. But should Thy angels call for her much sooner than we've planned, we'll brave and grief that comes and try to understand."



I love you guys....Amy Sturm

Dear Kim, Glen and Chrissy,



I was so sorry to hear of your tragic loss. Morgaen was such a beautiful and intelligent young lady. Please know that your family is in the thoughts and prayers of everyone at my office.

No one can tell you about grief, it's limitless boundaries, or it's unfathomable depth. No one can tell you about the emptiness in the center of your body, that nothing can fill. The death of someone we love, always brings shock and finality for which nobody is ever prepared.

Morgean's infectious smile and open heart was eagerly received by all that knew her. Thank you for sharing such a rare and precious soul.

Though never with us long enough, they are forever imprinted in our mind, heart and soul. A broken heart may never heal, it just learns to beat differently.

Mr. and Mrs. Gillis and Chrissy:

I cannot adequately express our overwhelming sorrow and sympathy that we feel for you, as well as for all who knew Morgaen. My heart is broken, yet I am comforted by the fact that I had the opportunity and the privilege to know her as well as I did. She was a special child that got under my skin; I was one of her junior high school teachers, and I always felt a connection to her. She used to come by and visit with me after junior high,once she went on to high school, and I was always struck by her amazing maturity, grace, and overall kindness and love for others. She was, quite simply, an angel on earth, and having had the honor of knowing her enriches us all. I will forever miss Morgaen, as everyone who knew her will, yet I am eternally grateful for the time that she spent with me, and for having had the opportunity to love her. I will always remember her--there will never be a smile quite like Morgaen's. Thank you for sharing your wonderful daughter with us, and God bless and keep you through all of this. There is only one word that so totally describes her, and that word is..."special".

With heartfelt sympathy,

Jimmy and Melissa Cole

Mogean was an amazing person. She was beautiful, sweet, smart, and many other wonderful things. There is so much to say about her, but everyone who has ever been touched by her loving friendliness knows what it is like. She always had a smile on her face no matter where or when I saw her. Nobody can ever understand this tragic event, but my love and blessings go out to her family and anyone who was ever touched by such an angel.

Jesus answered him, "I tell you the truth, today you will be with me in paradise."Luke 23:43



Glenn, Kim, and Chrissy, take peace in knowing that Morgaen is certainly in paradise with her heavenly Father. I know she will always be that beautiful girl in the picture in heaven and also for us here on earth. I pray for each of her family and friends during this time of grief.

I have not seen your girls in over 6 years, but I would have known she was yours anywhere. She was beautiful just like her Mom and Dad. God Bless you all
By: Jessica Spears Mar 4, 2005
I knew Morgaen since we were kids and I remember us being best friends and not too long ago we were laughing about something that happened to us in the past. But ever since I first met her she had always been an angel to me, she even had the beauty of an angel in and out. No words, I know, could ever release the pain of your loss, but I do want to thank you for allowing me to have a piece of of your daughter in my life. Without her my memories wouldn't have been complete. Here's a poem in memory of your angel...

As fragile as a dew upon a petal, Like spring in all its wonder, As life that gave such beauty, too soon has slipped away. As slowly as a tear fall, Like the quietness if a pin drop, No notice to the heart that breaks, did a shattered heart have to make. As surely as the dawning morn, Like the ever changing of the wind, We will rise up tomorrow, different than we began.
