BC: Somewhere there is someone that dreams of your smile, and finds in your presence that life is worthwhile, so when you are lonely remember it's true, someone somewhere is thinking of you! With all my love, Lorrie Corr

12: We reached for the stars... | and got an armful of heaven
13: I received a gift on that faithful day Of which I know I could never repay, Just as God came down to say He just gave one of his angels away. To hold her forever and never stray To be there to comfort her pain away, To see her through even the roughest days And teach her to be stronger along the way. Now watching each day as you grow The changing of features from head to toe, The smiles and giggles that make you glow And the way you let your spirit show. So, I"ll make a promise to you now To raise you the best that I know how, To teach you to always be confident and proud So that you always stand out above the crowd Love, Mom
14: Anyone can be a father... | it takes someone special to be a dad
15: Fathers are angels sent from heaven | The depth of a father's love shows in his daughter's eyes. What's known is what's shown from sunset to sunrise. A relation so peculiar that only the two can understand, Yet so immaculate it's obvious that, by God, it was planned. I believe it all began when she would sleep upon your chest. Now you're her number one, her favorite, you're the best! From wrestling, racing, jumping rope to being made up like a doll Both playmate and best friend,you've done some of it all. And you're there to cater to her every need and every wish. There's an invisible pedestal for Daddy's little princess. It's that spunk in her step, the rainbow in her eyes You'll know she's a Daddy's girl when she passes by. Sweet dreams are non-existent without Daddy's goodnight kiss, Your gentle stroke, words just for her is exactly what she'd miss It's all simply because of how you love her from sunset to sunrise The depth of your love will forever show in her eyes
16: All of God's grace in one sweet little face
17: I look into your face big brother, I wonder what we'll do, When I am big enough to stand, And one day play with you. I look into your face big brother, and give a great big smile, I love it when you spend time with me And play with me awhile. I look into your face big brother, I'm watching all you do, I cannot wait until I grow up And be a big kid just like you Love, Sophia
