Zoey's poem

This is the poem and little speech that mike and I read when we scattered Zoey's ashes in half moon bay. We went out on a boat with my parents, mikes parents and my grandma. It was a little rainy that day but right as we started scattering her ashes the sun came out. It was like god letting us know that everything will be ok.

Today we are scattering Zoey’s ashes in a place very special to us both. We choose Half Moon Bay because we feel it’s a place we can come and remember her often and hopefully share with her future siblings. It is important to us to scatter her ashes in the ocean because we feel that from here she can go anywhere and everywhere in the world. Zoey would have been brought up on and around the water and we wanted to share with her this important part of our lives. We know that anytime we are out on the water Zoey will be with us from below and in the heavens up above looking down on us all.

Our little guardian angel.

We thought of you with love today but that is nothing new
We thought about you yesterday
and days before that too
We think of you in silence we often speak your name
Now all we have are memories
and your picture in a frame
Your memory is our keepsake with which we'll never part
God has you in his keeping
we have you in our heart.
