This memorial is a tribute to our beautiful daughter Kayla who is deeply missed and loved.

Kayla was taken from us by a drunk and speeding driver at the age of only 13 years.

Most of the music on these pages were songs played at Kaylas funeral though not in the order they are heard.

There are quite a few pictures so some of the pages may take a while to load, please be patient and take your time to look at them.

Kayla was very special to us.

Please also sign our guestbook, its nice to know you have visited....this site is a work in progress and is constantly updated so please visit more than once. 

Kayla has left a huge gap in our lives and we will always love and miss her.

Sweet dreams sweetheart, nothing and no one can hurt you now xxx


Think of me and know I am with you,

Think of me and smile.

Think of me and know that our parting,

Is only for a while.

On the days you feel so desperate

to see my smiling face,

Just believe in your heart I am with you,

And that im in a beautiful place.

So think of me and remember

All the memories in your heart,

And believe and know that this is true,

We are never really apart.


You never said im leaving,

You never said goodbye,

You were gone before I knew it,

And only god knew why.

A million times Ive needed you,

A million times Ive cried,

If love alone could have saved you,

You never would have died.

In life I loved you dearly,

In death I love you still,

In my heart you hold a place,

That no one could ever fill.

It broke my heart to lose you,

But you didnt go alone,

For a big part of me went with you,

The day he took you home.


If only you knew how much I miss you kayla,

I so need for you to know.  

I would wrap my arms around you babe,

and never let you go.


If I had known that day my child that it would be goodbye,

I'd not have let you out my sight, I would not sit and cry,

And evermore wish I could turn the time right back again,

To have you near, to hold you close, not think of you in pain.

If I had known that tragic day you'd go and not return,

I would have hugged you close to me, my heart would not now yearn.

If I could kiss you one more time, just once more hug you tight,

Then watch you sleeping in your bed, and whisper 'kayla, goodnight'

If I could hear your laughter in our house just once,

I'm sure I'd know you're safe and happy in heaven forevermore.

May the angels keep you till morning.

May they guide you through the night.

May they comfort all your sorrows.

May they help you win the fight.

May they keep watch on your soul.

May they show you better ways.

May they guard you while you're sleeping.

May they see you through your days.

May they show you new hopes.

May they still your every doubt.

May they calm your every fear.

May they hear you when you shout.

May the angels keep you til morning.

More than this I cannot pray.

And if the angels ever fail you.

Then may God be there that day.


I would give anything to hear your voice once more. I loved the way you laugh. I love and miss you so very very much xxxxx


sleep soundly my precious angel



She carries such a heavy heart, her tears will often flow,

Seems everyone's avoiding her, seems no-one wants to know!

Her grief she carries all alone, nobody seems to care,

Or help her ease this burden,  this burden she must bear.

Her child she has just left her, but where, where did she go?

Why did she have to leave so soon,  and will she ever know?

A mother's grief's a lonely path,  she only wants her child,

For other's understanding, their love, if only mild!

To talk of her lost daughter, acknowledge her real pain,

To tell her life will soon be bright, she'll see her child again,

For she has gone to Heaven, an Angel up above,

Where there's no tears or dying, just great eternal love.

Try understand this mother's grief, praise God it was not you.

That lost your precious, wanted child, for she was wanted too!


If any of Kayla or Amys friends have photos they wish to put on these pages or there is any music that particularly reminds you of her or Amy, please email me or leave a message on the guestbook,,thankyou x


angels together forever

Go ahead and mention my child,

The one who died you know.

Don't worry about hurting me further,

The depth of my pain doesn't show.

Don't worry about making me cry.

I'm already crying inside.

Help me to heal by releasing

The tears that I try to hide.

I'm hurt when you just keep silent,

Pretending she didn't exist.

I'd rather you mention my child,

Knowing that she has been missed.

You asked me how I was doing.

I say "pretty good" or "fine."

But healing is something ongoing.

I feel it will take a lifetime.








In tears we watched you sinking, we watched you fade away.

And though our hearts were breaking,we knew you couldnt stay.

The moment that you died, our hearts simply broke in two.

One side filled with memories, the other died with you.

But beautiful memories are wonderful things,

They last till the longest day,

They never wear out, they never get lost and can never be given away.

To some you may be forgotten, to others a part of the past,

But to us who loved and lost you,your memory will always last,

We miss you always our little miss odd socks.




there is no relationship like that of a parent and child.....very very true






I lost my child today

People came to weep and cry

As I just sat and stared, dry eyed

They struggled to find words to say

To try and make the pain go away

I walked the floor in disbelief

I lost my chid today.

I lost my child last month

Most of the people went away

Some still call and some still stay

I wait to wake up from this dream

This can't be real, I want to scream

Yet everything is locked inside

God help me, I want to die

I lost my child last month.

I lost my child last year

Now people who had came have gone

I sit and struggle all day long

To bear the pain so deep inside

And now my friends just question Why?

Why does this Mother not move on?

Just sits and sings the same old song

Good heavens it has been so long

I lost my child last year.

Time has not moved on for me

The numbness it has disappeared

My eyes have now cried many tears

I see the look upon your face

"She must move on and leave this place"

Yet I am trapped right here in time

The songs the same, as is the rhyme

I lost my child...............Today.
