Dear Joseph,I am sorry I did not get to meet you in person and honour your brief walk earthside.I am sorry you did not get to gaze into your mothers, fathers, brothers and families eyes. But I know you felt their touch, their love and their laughter whilst in your mothers belly, and you and your mummy were constantly, always, in touch, for that long 9 months.Your visit earthside was so short. I cannot help but wonder what you wanted to teach each one of us that were touched by you? You have left a legacy to many many people Joseph. Your legacy to me is to take steps toward giving my life in service to others, to help their healing, and allow them to feel the power of their love for those they have lost, without being in pain. I promise you that I will do everything I can to look after your mummy and daddy and help them as they travel the painful road ahead, without you in their arms. Thank you for honouring us with your visit Joseph. Thankyou for letting your family love you, so briefly but yet so deeply.You will never be forgotten.
Sending you all my love though that doesn't seem enough words are never enough <3<3So I found this poem for you and yours <3Tiny Angels rest your wingssit with me for awhile.How I long to hold your hand,And see your tender smile.Tiny Angel, look at me,I want this image clear....That I will forget your precious faceIs my biggest fear.Tiny Angel can you tell me,Why you have gone away?You weren't here for very long....Why is it, you couldn't stay?Tiny Angel shook his head,"These things I do not know....But I do know that you love me,And that I love you so"
Dear Kate, thinking of you and your family and sending you love and hugsSue xx

the poem that i wrote for joseph gabriel's funeral. love you baby boy! xoxox missing you more and more every minute.My god Joseph Gabriel what an impact you have made, the events surrounding pregnancy and birth are constantly being replayed,The days before your birth we began to have doubt, we all wondered when on earth this baby would come out,When your mummy went into labour, this time we weren’t mistaken, at that point having no idea you would be so tragically taken,When you were born we counted ten perfect fingers and toes, we gazed at your perfect face and adored your button nose,We were told by all the doctors that your future was unknown, and even though we were all together, felt ever so alone,We hoped and prayed for hours wishing anyone would listen, and looking up into the sky I could have sworn your name was written,When they delivered the news saying it wasn’t good, know one could comprehend, know one understood,Why and how this had happened to someone so perfect and small, we expected a brilliant future and for you to be standing tall,This overwhelming want and need to offer you protection, the years we had been set out to provide comfort, love and affection,The pain, the love the anger, beyond anything anyone can describe, our beautiful baby Joseph, ripped away from his family, his tribe,The day they took you off, we cried, we cuddled and kissed you, knowing when that moment was gone how greatly we all would miss you, There has to be a reason for this, it just sitting in disguise, but no matter what it turns out to be, you will always be an angel in our eyes. My god Joseph Gabriel what an impact you have made....
