Sentiments of Sailor Kate
This poem was written especially for Sailor Kate by
Jimmy and Janie Howard, parents of Sailor's Aunt Jill:

Sailor Kate went sailing, so young and so free
Now she's on the lap of her Great Gran Ma Marie
Sailor, you know how much you were loved
And we're sure you're looking down from Heaven above
You were here on earth for such a short time
But, for all who loved you, that time was so divine
It's hard to understand why God took you on 2/27
But right now we know, there's one more little Angel in Heaven
So, Sail on, Sail on, Sailor
Sail on in our hearts and in our minds
Sail on, Sail on, Sailor
We'll see you when we reach the other side
With much love,
Jimmy and Janie

In a baby castle, just beyond my eye
My baby plays with angel toys that money cannot buy.
Who am I to wish her back into this world of strife?
No, play on my baby, you have eternal life.
At night when all is silent and sleep forsakes my eyes,
I'll hear her tiny footsteps come running to my side.
Her little hands caress me so tenderly and sweet,
I'll breathe a prayer and close my eyes and embrace her in my sleep.
No, I have a treasure I rate above all other,
I have known true glory ~ I am still her mother

Angels
When God calls little children
to dwell with him above
We mortals sometimes question
the wisdom of His love.
For no heartache compares with
the death of one small child
Who does so much to make our world
seem wonderful and mild.
Perhaps God tires of calling
the aged to his fold
So he picks a rosebud
before it grows old.
God knows how much we need them,
and so He takes a but a few
To make the land of Heaven
more beautiful to view
Believing this is difficult
still somehow we must try
The saddest word mankind knows
will always be goodbye.
So when a little child departs,
we who are left behind
Must realize God loves children,
Angels are hard to find.
"You and Sailor are in my constant thoughts. I read how you always called
Sailor baby Angel.  She is now an
Angel watching over you and your family."
