Memorial website in the memory of your loved one
This memorial website was created in the memory of our beloved son, Elisha Joseph McLain who was born in Woodbridge, Virginia on February 22, 2008 and passed away suddenly on June 25, 2008 due to SIDS, Sudden Infant Death Syndrome.  He was 4 months and 3 days old. 

We will remember him forever.  Eli will always be our little boy.  The moment we met him, he stole our hearts.  He was so perfect and we love him so much.  Like Ella, our neice, says he is our angel watching over us.

"And ye now therefore have sorrow:  but I will see you again, and your heart shall rejoice, and your joy no man taketh from you."
John 16:22



IF I HAD ONLY KNOWN

If only I had Known it was our last walk in the rain I'd keep you out for hours in the storm I would hold your hand, like a lifeline to my heart And underneath the thunder we'd be warm If only I had known it was our last walk in the rain

If only I had known I'd never hear your voice again I'd memorize each thing you ever said And on these lonely nights, I could think of them once more And keep your words alive inside my head If only I had known I'd never here your voice again

You were the treasure in my heart You were the one who always stood beside me So unaware, I foolishly believed that you would always be there But then there came a day when I closed my eyes And you slipped away

If only I had known it was my last night by your side I'd pray a miracle would stop the dawn And when you smiled at me, I would look into your eyes And make sure you know my love for you goes on and on If I had only Known, if I had only Known

Poem  / Irena Hill (Nanny to angel Kayleigh Erceg )
The world may never notice If a Snowdrop doesn't bloom, Or even pause to wonder If the petals fall too soon. But every life that ever forms, Or ever comes to be, Touches the world in some small way For all eternity. The little one we longed for W...  Continue >>

His legacy
From Angel Kayleigh  




Dear Mr Postman,can you send a letter from me,
I need it sent from up above to my earthly family
Please send it quick, my mummy's sad, I hate to see her cry.
Every night she prays to God and sadly asks him why.

Please let it say, I could not stay, with an Angel I had to go
I'm fine, I'm happyhere with the other babies I know
I hope it reads to Daddy, I know you love me too
I miss you lots and all the things that we had planned to do.

Grandma, how I'll miss your hugs and kisses planned for me
I know how much you'll miss the growing child that I should be
Close it with, I love you so, I'm with you in your heart
I never really left you see, I was an angel from the start.
A Poem that helped  
A close friend of mine gave me this poem at Eli's funeral and it really helped me. Thank you Kara.

Daddy please don't look so sad,
Mommy please don't cry,
cause I am in the arms of Jesus
and He sings me lullabies.
Please try not to question God,
don't think He is unkind.
Don't think He sent me to you,
and then he changed His mind.
You see, I am a special child,
and I am needed up above,
I'm the special gift you gave Him,
the product of your love.
I'll always be there with you,
and watch the sky at night
find the brightest star that's gleaming,
that's my halo's brilliant light.
You'll see me in the morning frost,
that mists your windowpane.
That's me, in the summer showers,
I'll be dancing in the rain.
When you feel a gentle breeze,
from a gentle wind that blows,
that's me; I'll be there, planting a kiss on your nose.
When you see a child playing,
and your heart feels a little tug,
that's me; I'll be there, giving your heart a hug.
So, Daddy, please don't look so sad,
Mommy don't you cry.
I'm in the arms of Jesus,
and He sings me lullabies.
