The Day the Angels Came
a grandpa's prayer and poem for Kyrie Dawn

Wednesday, April 4, the day we heard of the explosive growth of the tumors

Alas! O, Lord what is it that I hear?
Is it Your angels coming for our Kyrie Dawn?
O, please Lord, keep them at bay--
If just for one more day.

Thursday, April 5, Holy Thursday

O, Lord, what is this I hear?
Is it that You need another little angel to be near?
O, please Lord, please Lord, don't take our Kyrie dear.
Could You please keep Your angels away,
and we could have her just one more day?

Friday, April 6, Good Friday

O, precious, sweet Jesus, is this the day?
No, no, dear Lord, not today--
This is Your day that You died to save.
Again, please Dear God, let us be selfish
and keep sweet Kyrie another day.

Saturday, April 7, Holy Saturday Easter Vigil

Thank you dear God in heaven
for yet another precious day--
For we all know things will be done your way.
Little Kyrie Dawn is fighting so very hard--
Yesterday she three her ball three times
till her tiny arm got tired.

Angel of God, my guardian dear,
To whom God's love entrusts her here,
Ever this day be at her side
To light, to guard, to rule to guide. Amen.

Sunday, April 8, Easter Sunday

Dear God in Heaven, Your angels came last night,
As we all knew that someday they might.
They came around the hour of seven
to take our precious one to her
special place in heaven.
Sweet Jesus, we know that you, too, love the little ones,
so to You we give You our little Kyrie Dawn--
And in the end, it is always Your will that will be done.

* A note: The flower garden of nearly 200 pink & red tulips that Papa Thome planted last fall began to show the tiniest bits of color yesterday. With a little more sun, they are likely to bloom today.

PLease everyone take a few minutes to watch Kyrie's tribute video. We have to think about how important her life was today. She will always be our princess and I just ask you to do something to celebrate her today.

Love,
Lacie Thome

I posted this morning, but I guess it didn't stick...

I personally have witnessed a little butterfly making her appearance here and there today...maybe she will flutter through Papa Thome's garden, maybe she will land on a flower that covers a special spot at the cemetery, but I know she a little angel named Kyrie has been in my heart and on my mind all day...just as she is every day.

Big Love,
Melissa

And Lacie, I will watch the video today...and I'll say a prayer for you and Jordan and ask God to give that sweet angel a hug!

Lacie,

I too watched the video today and witnessed her spirit very much alive. Let God wrap his healing hands around your broken heart. Little by little, you'll feel it begin to heal and rest assured, Kyrie will NEVER be forgotten. With all of our love,
The Nelsons
