I do not know you, but I saw this obituary and thought of this poem for your family. It's beautiful and I hope it brings some comfort. Daddy please don't look so sad, momma please don't cry.. Cause I'm in the arms of Jesus and he sings me lullabies.. Please try not to question God, don't think he is unkind Don't think he sent me you and then changed his mind You see I'm a special child I am needed up above I'm the special gift you gave him, a product of love I'll always be there with you so watch the sky at night Look for the brightest star and know that's my halo's brilliant light You'll see me in the morning frost that mists your window pane, that's me in the summer showers, I'll be dancing in the rain When you feel a gentle breeze from a gentle wind that blows know that it's me planting a kiss upon your nose When you see a child playing and your heart feels a tug don't be sad mommy that just me giving your heart a hug. So daddy don't look so sad and momma please don't cry I'm in the arms of Jesus and he sings me lullabies

TAIYAH, so full of life, a character with a great laugh, and as her great grandma Nancy would say, "That baby was born smart". Taiyah was a joy to be around, loved when I was able to see her, we even had a slumber party in the living room of grandma Sue's one night. This summer I met Taiyah, Shaden, Tara and grandma Sue at Como zoo for the day. Weeks later Sue mentioned that they were going back again and Taiyah asked " Is your sister going?" My heart melted!!! Living in the cities I did not see her much, so for a 3 year old child to ask about me, and remember I was Sue's sister, guess grandma Nancy was right all along. I loved Taiyah very much and like so many that knew her my heart is broken with the loss of this Beautiful child!!!
