Dear Ashani

A Note to Ashani by chelees turner posted on Sat, 12/18/10, 7:56 PM

Dear Ashani,

I would just like to say A million times I've missed you, a million times I've cried.
If love alone could have saved you, you never would have died.
To some you are forgotten, to others just part of the past;
but to me who loved and lost you, your love will always last.
It broke my heart to lose you, you didn't go alone,
for my life went with you -sweetheart- the day angels called you home.
For things on earth didn't matter, but now I feel so alone,
My heart will always be broken, my life will never be whole.
We might be parted for awhile, our hearts will always be together
for one day soon we will hold hands again forever.

The day she left me

A Journal Entry by chelees turner posted on Sat, 12/18/10, 9:16 AM


I can remember that day as if it was just yesterday. On March 21, 2008 my old child died from cancer, her name is Ashani Riley she was 8 years old. On March 20th, ashani went to moms to spend the night so Jim and I were had a few drinks; I took him home around 1:00 am and then went to bed. The phone rings at about 4:00 am and for some reason I new it would be my mom. When I answered mom said get over here, shani is breathing funny, so I rushed over. When I arrived, I called 911 because shani was having problems breathing even with oxygen mask on. The paramedics took ashani to Rady children’s hospital and were admitted to the oncology unit. I thought that was odd because the ER nurse was only with ashani for 5 minutes and she would not tell me shanis blood pressure. Once we got into a room there were dr and nureses running in and out the room, the dr sedated ashani because she was in excruciating pain. Ashani was suffering when she finally fell asleep I crowled in bed with her, I remember whispering in her ear "I love you shani" ,smelling her hair and stairing at her. As I watched her chest moving up and down all of a sudden her chest stopped moving. Thats all I remember about that day.
