Daddy's Words for His Girl

This is what Arthur wrote for Caroline's graveside service...I just wanted to make sure that it got captured and thought it'd be nice to share:

Precious is the only word for this little angel. A beautiful precious angel.

She was only with us for a little over 9 months, but she touched our lives in those months like no one else. Every little kick stirred our hearts, every movement with her, a true blessing.

Without question, she was both a Ramsey and a Looney. Stubborn and silly, but sweet and strong. Always bringing a smile to our face.

This little girl never made it into this world, but she showed us all how good and gracious the world can be.

Her middle name Elizabeth means "a gift from God," and that's exactly what she is, even now. And there is no doubt that right now, she is in the arms of her Heavenly Father.

I could make Bruce talk all day about the love and blessings this little girl has brought us, but that wouldn't begin to tell her story.

On her last day with us, her mama had been singing "Because He Lives" to her. And that's the exact reason that we can face the future, "Because He lives," all fear is gone.

All of you have put a renewed hope and strength. Caroline Elizabeth Ramsey has gone on to her home in heaven, but her memory will never ever leave us, and we love her with all our hearts.
