I know it’s time to get back to informing my readers about some great Internet Marketing ideas and tips, but there is something I must do first.

Some of you may be wondering what that red rose is doing on my header.  In fact, I said in a previous post that I would reveal why it was put there in a future post.

Here’s the warm explanation.

My 24 year old niece Kerry passed to the other side on Dec. 9th 2007.  I was at her beside with her mom Barb when she transited.  By the time I arrived in Denver Kerry was not at all coherent….(although her eyes were open and staring) and on many pain killing medications.  All of her organs were shutting down and the first two days I was there there was no response at all in her face or in her eyes to any kind of gesture from any of us.  She was simply being kept alive with machines.

It was strange seeing Kerry like that…all kinds of tubes plugged into her and yet she seemed peaceful.  Soon we met with the doctors and it was decided that her family needed to remove the life support and let Kerry go to the higher heavens.  I cannot tell you how difficult that decision was.

That night while we were all sleeping in the waiting room Barb bolted straight up (it was about 5 in the morning. and we have now come to understand that it was Kerry waking her up and telling her to come into the room.)  I peeked out of my eyes and watched as Barb once again went into Kerry’s ICU room.  Suddenly, just a few minutes later she came running back into the waiting area and said Kerry’s awake and giving kisses.  I was up and in that room in a flash.  Immobile. and not moving any other muscles, if you got right up to her face, she puckered her sweet little lips ever so slightly and gave you a kiss  Her mom leaned over and talked with her and she turned her head ever so gently towards her.  I leaned over and told Kerry that she must “be” there for her mom and dad…that they would need her.  She nodded…so slightly…and, I knew she would be.

Within five minutes of waking she was back to her original non-responsive state.

We know now that Kerry had been gone for a while and that her angels and guides allowed her to come back and say good-bye to her mother and dad…and brother.  I was lucky to have been there to receive the blessing too.  It was an experience I will never, ever forget.  The heavens gave Kerry and her family the time they desperately needed…to say good-bye….before she left us…physically….to became FREE.

Not long before Kerry went into the hospital for the last time she asked her mom to pick her up a coloring book at the store (it was almost as though she was reverting to all her favorite childhood activities.) I can’t remember the name of the book she brought home to her, but it was one of those real thick coloring books.

The next day at Barb’s house she brought out the coloring book….there was only one page…and, one page only that Kerry had colored and it was the picture of a Red Rose….completed.  We knew that was Kerry’s sign to her mom that she will always be with her.  There have since been other very obvious signs with the Red Rose, but this one was so powerful.  I was also told (by my guides) to read the last paragraph of Bette Midler’s song “The Rose” at her passing celebration.

Every website or blog that I put up will now feature a red rose some place for all to see for I know Kerry is here helping me…..in every way she can, to succeed.  I can feel her presence.

We love you and miss you Kerry but we know that you are now singing with the Angel Choir and shining your bright spirit upon everyone.

If any of you have time here is a video of Angel Kerry (it’s only a minute long) when she was in high school singing the lead….she had an amazing voice.

The Rose

When the night has been too lonely
and the road has been too long
and you think that love is only
for the lucky and the strong
Just remember in the winter far beneath the bitter snows
lies the seed
that with the sun’s love
in the spring
becomes the rose
