    Hi Illisha and Ian. I don’t know if you remember us but I Sally met you a few years ago and we are Don’s sisters. Delores and Don told us about Cassandra’s passing and we just want to express our heartfelt and deepest sympathy to you all. She is so cute!!! Now she is with her creator and hearing, seeing, walking and talking—-things she could not do on earth. Here is a little poem that I hope would help——-I’LL LEND YOU FOR A LITTLE WHIELE A CHILD OF MINE GOD SAID…FOR YOU TO LOVE WHILE SHE LIVES AND MOURN FOR WHEN SHE’S DEAD. IT MAY BE SIX OR SEVEN YEARS OR TWENTY TWO OR THREE, BUT WILL YOU TILL I CALL AGAIN, TAKE CARE OF HER FOR ME? I’VE SEARCHED THE WHOLE WORLD OVER FOR PARENTS FAIR AND TRUE, AND FROM THE PEOPLE PASSING BY, I HAVE SELECTED YOU. NOW WILL YOU GIVE HER ALL YOUR LOVE AND NOT THINK THE LABOUR VAIN OR HATE ME WHEN I COME TO CALL AND TAKE HER BACK AGAIN? I THOUGHT THAT I HEARD SOME SAY ” LORD THY WILL BE DONE” FOR ALL THE JOYS THIS CHILD WILL BRING THE RISK OF GRIEF WE’LL RUN. SHE’LL BRING HER JOYS TO GLADDEN YOU AND SHOULD HER STAY BE BRIEF, YOU’LL HAVE HER LOVELY MEMORIES AS SOLACE FOR YOUR GRIEF, AND SHOULD THE ANGLES COME FOR HER MUCH SOONER THAN WE PLANNED, WE’LL FACE THE BITTER GRIEF THAT COMES…..AND TRY TO UNDERSTAND.

    Please let me add my condolences for the loss of your beautiful daughter Cassandra.
    Angels come to us in many forms and we never ever know how long they are going to
    stay in our lives. She truly was an angel for she touched everyone and made each of us
    a better person for knowing her. Thank you for the gift of letting me know her, it is something
    I will always treasure and I keep her pictures close by me. May God keep his loving arms around you during this time of need.
    Maria.
