View Full Version : Tragic Loss for our Kimlovescats.

05-30-2010, 10:41 PM
I received this terrible news the other day by e-mail from Kim and have her permission to post this;

"Our precious baby girl, Airiana Layne Saulsberry, has gone to be with our Lord in Heaven. Sometime around 3:00 pm. yesterday (May 24, 2010) Amy Beth found her precious baby girl had passed away in her sleep. Emergency crews came but it was too late. We as a family are in a serious state of disbelief, shock and neverending heartbreak. Tears pour from our hearts and eyes as emotions flood and consume us. Questions that can not be answered in this life, memories too painful to enjoy, emptiness deep within the depths of our comprehension, images of our final goodbyes. Crying out to our Almighty Father in Heaven for His healing and grace and peace for what feels so senseless, we know that He had his hand in this and His will not ours has been done. We bow before Him in prayer and humility and praise Him in all things."

Airiana Layne Saulsberry
3/17/2010 - 5/24/2010
"God's newest Angel"

This precious little girl was laid to rest yesterday, May, 29th.
Below is a beautiful graphic that Kim made for a slideshow that played continually during her visitation with a poem that I had sent to her.

A blessed little sunbeam
A child of love and prayer,
We give thee to the keeping
Of the tender Shepherd's care.
So sweet,
So small,
So soon.

As I said before Kim, my heart is aching for you and your family on the loss of your precious Airiana.

Rest in Peace sweet baby girl. You were so loved and will never be forgotten.

Kim, this poem brought me a lot of comfort when I lost my son, I hope it brings all of you comfort also.

A Child Loaned
"I'll lend you for a little time
A child of Mine." He said.
"For you to love the while he lives
And mourn for when he's dead.
It may be six or seven year
Or twenty-two or three
But will you, till I call him back
Take care of him for Me?
He'll bring his charms to gladden you
And should his stay be brief,
You'll have his lovely memories
As solace for your grief.
I cannot promise he will stay
Since all from Earth return,
But there are lessons taught down there
I want the child to learn.
I've looked this wide world over
In my search for teacher's true,
And from the throngs that crowd life's lanes,
I have selected you;
Now will you give him all your love,
Nor think the labour vain
Nor hate Me when I come to call
And take him back again?
I fancied that I heard them say,
"Dear Lord, They will be done,
For all the joy Thy child shall bring,
For the risk of grief we'll run.
We'll shelter him with tenderness,
We'll love him while we may,
And for the happiness we've known,
Forever grateful stay.
But should the angels call for him
Much sooner than we planned,
We'll brave the bitter grief that comes
And try to understand."

Kim, I am so sorry for you and your family's loss. As many have said there are no words that we can offer that will make you feel better. You all will be in my thoughts and prayers. Call ANYTIME you need to talk. Losing a child or grandchild is one of the hardest things of all to go through or understand.
