My Niece, Lisa Irene Giglio

by Doreen Appenzeller

Date: Wed, 10 Feb 1999

This past December I lost my 6 week old Niece Lisa Irene Giglio to SIDS. I was devastated that this could happen to someone that I loved and I blamed God for taking her away from us and I felt pretty rotten about that.

Today I came into work and one of my co-workers sent me a Mahogany Card which I can't even begin to describe how it made me feel. So I hope you post this and maybe someone who is hurting like I am can read this and feel the same thing.

In Memory of One Sweet Light

Since all belongs to God
and He reminds us we're His own,
Our children are not our to keep--
they're only here on loan.

They are a brilliant spark
from God's eternal light above--
sent here to families God is sure
will shower them with love.

They come to give the world the gifts
that only they can bring...
sweet innocence, accepting faith
and hope in everything.

Yet now and then our hearts are torn
when such a special child
is only here to shine that light on earth
a little while.

Remembering their lives bring joy,
although our hearts still grieve.
there's so much and comfort
in the memories they leave.

God's holding that sweet child right now
just as He's holding you.
He knows the awful pain you bear--
He lost His dear child, too.
