that flew down to earth,

{his / her} wings disappeared

at the time of {his / her} birth.

One look into {his / her} eyes

and we're never the same,

{he’s / she’s} a part of us now and

that part has a name.

{He’s / She’s} a part of our heart’s

A bond that won't sever,

our {Name} is our Angel,

we will love {him / her} forever.



The Lord will always walk with

you, along life's blessed beach. His

Footprints there beside your own,

always within reach. Two sets

of footprints, side by side, from

dawn to setting sun. Yet there

may come a day my child, when

you'll see only one. But do not

think the Lord has left you,

nothing could be more wrong.

It's just that He has picked you up,

to carry you along.



May all the blessings of our

Lord touch your life today.

may He send His little Angels

 to protect you on your way.

Such a miraculous gift, sent

from above. Someone so

precious to cherish and love.

May sunshine and moonbeams

dance over your head. As you

quietly slumber in your bed.

May good luck be with you

Wherever you go. And your

blessings outnumber the

shamrocks that grow.

Hail Mary, full of grace.

The Lord is with thee.

Blessed art thou amongst women,

and blessed is the fruit of thy womb,

 Jesus. Holy Mary, Mother of God,

pray for us sinners, now and

 at the hour of our death,





Our Father,

who art in heaven,

hallowed be Thy name;

Thy kingdom come;

Thy will be done on earth

as it is in heaven.

Give us this day our daily bread;

and forgive us our trespasses,

as we forgive those who trespass against us;

and lead us not into temptation,

but deliver us from evil.
