Angel Tears

For Elizabeth Rippee
January 5, 1988 - December 24, 2008

Elizabeth passed away suddenly Christmas Eve, leaving those who loved her bewildered and adrift. Far too young for death to call, her innate goodness will fill the void left in our hearts so that we may carry her with us forever. She was a loving daughter to her parents, devoted sister to her twin, tender companion to my son, generous friend to many - and missed by all who knew her. May she be our guardian angel.

Your beautiful image and touching words are a tribute to this soul who departed far too soon. My heart is heavy for your loss.

My heart goes out to yours Jenene xxx Wishing you comfort from family and friends. Please take care xx

Rainbows may pass
And yet we are the ones
Who are fortunate to nourish their color
Alive always, within.

My heart goes out to you belatedly, Jenene. This is a terrible tragedy. Your heart will heal as time passes, and only good memories of Elizabeth will remain. A wonderful image to remember her by. With sincerest sympathies, Jay

Life is fragile. It passes so quickly, and sadly even more so in this case. You render an eloquent tribute here, Jenene - an image that seems awash in fragile tears. I am sorry to hear of your loss, and I hope that in making and posting this image based on the human spirit, you were able to release some of the sorrow that accompanies such a tragic event and honor the memory of a friend.

I'm so sorry for your loss. She sounded like a wonderful young lady. Sometimes we don't understand why God takes those we love so soon but one day we will know. Sounds like she touched a lot of hearts. Prayers going out to you, her family and to your son!

Oh Jenene, I'm so sorry for you, your son and her family and friends. I'm not religous, but at these times like to think that the departed live on as a spirit elsewhere.
Your image here conjours up all sorts of thoughts on the subject. I hope Elizabeth will be able to pick up your feelings somehow.
Take Care.
