In Ever Loving Memory of Lovely Evana (2 Oct 2009 - 5 Sept 2010)

I felt so honoured to present a speech during the funeral service at the church for Lovely Evana. 
This was my speech...

"Yes Jesus love you (3x), The bible tells me so..lovely lovely please don’t cry, lovely lovely close your eyes, lovely lovely time to sleep,  mummy here take care of you………….
My brothers & sisters in Christ..my name is Freda and I was the grandaunt of Lovely Evana…

The song that i just sang was not just an ordinary song. It was not just a gospel song but that was the lullaby , which was always sang by Lovely’s mum, Lisa (My beloved best friend, childhood friend and darling cousin),  had made her heart rate beat faster and stayed a little longer by her side while she was struggling on a battle to live on her critical moment last Sunday morning..it was hard, and indeed painful to let her go..but she had enough to suffer  for 11 months..At last, we let her go to be with the Lord and spread her wings to become an angel in heaven.

Lovely Evana was born on the 2nd October, 2009 during the Guardian Angels Feast Day. She was diagnosed to have ‘Large PDA Heart’ not long after she was born. Thus, she had to undergo heart operation at IJN, KL when she was only four months..Unfortunately she didn’t recover fully from the operation and her heath condition got even worse, whereby it affected both of her kidneys. She had been in an out from the hospital mostly and more and more illnesses were discovered. Soon, she had lungs infection and suffered breathing difficulty. ..alas, she succumbed to death on Sept 05 at 12.50am due to kidney failure, chronic lung infection..

However, during her lifetime, she had been known well by the nurses and doctors even the security guards in the hospital..not because of her illnesses, but because she was lovely and cheerful..Lovely Evana (What a wonderful name suit her personaliy)…she had lighted our days, touched our hearts but she never failed to give her lovely smile with a cute dimple on her right cheek (dimple-dimple)..blink her eyes like ‘mingkikiut’ (eyes-eyes)…She’s the most  steadfast  baby I’d ever seen, who was always ill but cheerful..nobody will ever have the sweetest smile like Lovely Evana again, and She will be forever missed and never forgotten. .

Our Tiny darling angel, Lovely Evana…rest in eternal peace in heaven. Your Mummy, daddy, koko, grandmas & granddads, uncles & aunties will always love and remember you in our hearts & prayers.

We'll remember you with all your special nuances and our memories from all the days gone before that we were privileged to share with you...

And today we'll grieve for you, and cry for you and even smile because of you...
And in all the tomorrows we'll feel you - gone in some ways, but your presence ever near.
Go well...stay well...always."

A little angel unknown I, am, my place is as an angel in a secret land.
I didn't have a name as such, you didn't get the chance,
I wasn't meant to live on earth just touch you by the hand.
I've been sent to touch your lives and I know you’ll think that cruel,
but its only special people that are chosen exceptions to the rules.
I knew you would love me from the very start,
from that first sighting & beating of my tiny heart,
so I know that it will hurt you that you have to say goodbye,
but I am your guardian angel now and I'll dry the tears from your eyes.
I'll be there by your side wherever you now go,
I will hear you speak of me often & what I might have been if I'd grown,
I'll be the special angel in the picture that you have,
I'll remind you of my brother & my dad,
I'll have your little features all of you as one
& I'll love you always as my special mum.
You might not have got to see me as a living breathing thing,
but I'll be the ribbon around your heart and my love will be deep within,
this pleasure I promise will be mine,
to be your guardian angel from now until the end of time.
I'll gift you with my presence every night within your dreams,
walk always as your special unknown angel
gifted to you within just for a short while,
so think of me often and smile,
For I, am your very own special unknown gifted child.
