Memorial website in the memory of your loved one

This memorial website was created in the memory of our little Angel Adam Lee who was born sleeping on January 2nd 2005.

"Sweet dreams little Angel, we miss you so much!"XXX

A Child that loses a parent is an orphan.
A man that loses his wife is a widower.
A woman that loses her husband is a widow.
There is no name for a parent that loses a child.
There is no word to describe the pain.


I didn't have to look into your eyes to fall in love with you,
I didn't have to hear your cry to know you loved me too.
I didn't need to hold your hand to cherish you always.
Within my womb we shared our hearts, 
You touched my soul,
You sweetened my spitit,
You gave me memories i'll always hold dear.
Yes, my heart aches since you departed too soon,
But a mothers love doesn't end with death,
For you are my child and my love is forever yours.

Little Adam Lee was born too soon on January 2nd 2005.  His premature appearance was due to my very high blood pressure.  I started having contractions at home at around 5pm on Sunday 2nd January.  The hospital was phoned but due to the fact that it was over the New Year holiday it was only a machine saying someone would phone back within 30 minutes.  In about 15 minutes I started to bleed and my husband Gerry phoned again, to get the same message.  Finally a doctor phoned back, and what felt like a age of what seemed like stupid questions told us to come straight in.  On my way out to the car I knew I couldnt go any further as things had seriously started to progress.  Gerry took me back inside and phoned for an ambulance. But little Adam decided not to wait and arrived at 5:46pm.  But he had no chance bless him, he was too small.  We were told even if we had made it to the hospital before he was born there would have been very little, if anything they could have done to stop labour or save him.  This really didnt help us at the time.  Our little angel was so wanted and we were so looking forward to his arrival. 

Because of the pain all the kids suffered Gerry and I decided to let them name our little Angel.  We said we did not mind if it was one name that they agreed on or four, as you can see it was the latter. Andrew picked Adam, and being the only other boy we chose that as the first name. Sharon picked Jacob, Stephanie picked Ben and Abby picked Simon. That is how Adam Jacob Ben Simon Lee got his name.xxxxx

Little Angel Adam is buried in Reading Cemetery on Henley Road, Reading.  We go there often to be close to him, but we know he is with us every day watching over us.

Little Adam is so sadly missed by his mommy, daddy, sisters Stephanie, Sharon and Abby and his brother Andrew. xxxxxx

We love you Adam and we will never forget you.  You have left such a big hole in our hearts, but we know we will meet you again some day.xxxxx

From the day I found out I was pregnant on Adam which was 5th November 2004, I was so excited. I often missed a period so it was not until I missed three periods that the thought crossed my mind that I might in fact be pregnant.  I did 5 pregnancy tests just to be sure.  I was so looking forward to him coming. I started buying bits for him straight away, every visit into town I would come out with an outfit or a toy, or even something practical if all else failed.  The hardest thing I ever had to do was pack away all those beautiful things.

I didnt tell my family I was pregnant until just before christmas (27 weeks), this is something I regret now because they were so happy for me, i thought they would think I was mad. 



I would like to welcome all those who decided to visit Adams site. I would really love if you would leave a message and/or light a candle so his memory will live on forever, as it does it our hearts.



The memory of Adam will live on forever We will never forget him.  The pain will always be there, but this was made easier by the following people, people I know now I will never ever be able to repay.

Tereasa Jewell: For being there on the night of Adams birth/death.  For all the help and support you gave us.  Without you on that awful evening I do not know what we would have done.  xxxx

Collette and Roddy: For all the support you gave, even though it brought back memories of your own little angel Collette you were my rock!!!

Tracey:For listening to me when I was falling apart.  For your help with getting both Abby and Andrew to school.  For being a brilliant friend. xx 

Eilis: My sister. For dropping everything to come down and support us.  As always you are brilliant.  Your help and support was outstanding and will never be forgotten.

Mam and Dad: For your brilliant support and phonecalls.  Dad, for all the calls you made while mam was at work, something I know is unusual for you as mam did all the calls.  For listening to me cry over and over again.  Mam for getting the knitting needles out of the mothballs and starting to knit some cardigans.  I will never forget it all.

Finola: My sister.  For listening to me when I needed a good cry.  For sending me those wonderful glass angels which I will cherish.  Thank you.

Babycentre girls:Star, Ed, Nat, Savvy, Friendly, Sundrops, Mabs, Ann, Anne and many more who I know were there at the time. Thank you so much for listening to me and helping me through it all.  Dont know how I would have got through the day to day of life without you.

Ger:For putting up with me and my moods and tears.  You never once passed a winging word you just listened to me. I love you, xxxxx

Stephanie, Sharon Andrew and Abby: My brilliant children who went through so  much but still had time to keep asking how  I was, I love ye all.xxxx

Pearl:You were there to listen when I needed you, you were there to help me get the help and support I so needed.  You always enquired how I was but gave me the space when I needed it too.  You were a true friend.

To my friends in the west reading social club: Mary and Bridie and the committee for being so patient with me.  For all your support and kind thoughts.

To the girls in the irish club:Josephine, Sue, Sharon. For your support and kind thoughts and with Colly, your flowers.

I will light a candle to you all and hope that in some way this will act as a little way of saying thank you!

Caring Loving Angel

You're in the safest hands you know
They support you every day
They hold you tight and give you strength
And will never go away
They cup your face when you are tired
They pat your shoulder too
They lift you up on weary days
When life is tough on you.

They stroke your brow
They wipe a tear
They clasp your hand held tight
They massage your aching body
In the quiet of the night

They mend your heart when broken
Giving meaning to go on
They lift the cup so you can drink
To help to keep you strong
They place each foot to climb the hill
They push and shove with might
They knew that you could do it
And as always they were right.

These hands only rest when they know
That you are well and safe
They are the hands of your angel
Giving strength and love and grace
Life is so much better
Knowing you have angel hands on you
Forever offering their support
In everything you do.

This beautiful verse was on a wonderful card a lovely lady and a good friend sent me. Marie McLaughlin, from Castlederg in Northern Ireland. I only met Marie and her lovely family in June, in Salou, and she has turn out to be a brilliant friend that I am so happy I met, and hopefully will meet again. Marie has her own family pains and troubles but she still took time out to help and support me with mine.  Thank you so much Marie, I will never forget you.xxxxx

To our precious darling Angel

Mommys little baby is not really far away,
I'm keeping you in my heart and thats how it's going to stay.
Although you didnt meet me and look into my eyes,
Mommy will be thinking of you when I look up in the skies.

And when I feel the sunshine, shining down on me,
I will know your are safe and happy, and where you have to be.
I have so many questions and there are no answers to find,
But dont think for just a second that you'll ever leave my mind.

You my precious angel made a mommy out of me,
But our Father up in heaven chose to raise you instead of me.
God must have so much in store and wonderful plans for you,
So I will carry this burden of pain, so all your dreams come true.

So dont you cry any tears my love, be happy and free,
When God decided its time, you will meet daddy and me.
You are very special both here and in heaven above,
No matter where you are my angel you have Daddy and Mommys love.

All our love our precious angel.
Sweet dreams!
We miss and love you so very much!

Poems for Our little Angel


We go through life so often,
Not stopping to enjoy the day,
And we take each one for granted,
As we travel on our way.

For in your pain and sorrow,
An Angels kiss will help you through,
This kiss is very private,
For it is ment for only you.

We never stop to measure,
Anything we just might miss,
But if the wind should blow by softly,
You'll feel an Angels kiss.

A kiss that is sent from Heaven,
A kiss from up above,
A kiss that is very special,
From someone that you love.

So when your heart is heavy,
And filled with tears and pain,
And no one can console you,
Remember once again.....

About the ones you grieve for,
Because you sadly miss,
And the gentle breeze you took for granted,
  Was just an Angels kiss.


We are lonely apart but together we're strong
All of our precious babies are gone
Some people ask if we are feeling down.

Some of them notice a tear or a frown
Most of them dont and we carry on
Hiding our sadness inside.

They tell us our grief wont last for long
They ask us if we are moving on?
We're not, we're just pretending well
Hiding emotions and we dont tell
How lost we feel and alone.

Some of us cope in strange little ways
We'll all grieve for all our days
We'll never ever ever forget
Although on days we may accept
That our babies were taken away.

There are days that are harder - anniversaries
We find ways to remember like planting trees
A special plant or a candle lit
A favourite place to think and sit
With a whisper in the breeze.

And our Angels watch and are full of smiles
So proud of mummy coping all the while
And daddy, brothers, sisters too
They sometimes send us someone new
to love and care for.

So to all you mummies - I send a hug
This poem written - full of love
And lets remember when there's tears
We're altogether, always near.

Mummy to Twin Angels Angelina and Serena
