Memorial website in the memory of your loved one




  

 

 

 

  

 

 

 

 

  

 

 

This Memorial Web site was created for our loved one Vanessa Borg who was born in New York on July 29, 1982 and passed away on July 31, 2006 at the age of 24.In the short time she spent with us Vanessa made many friends and touched many lives. And always had a Smile.

 


It’s hard to write about someone’s life as there are so many times in her life that she shone like thousands of stars each one representing point of her life. .What I can tell you about Vanessa is if you knew her your heart was touched. Her face was always with a Smile her Personality was so full of life and fun loving and always wanting to help others. I remember shortly after September 11th 2001 she was in shock like so many people but she said Dad I need to do something I am going to Volunteer at the Emergency Center that was set up on the West side to help the rescue workers and fire fighters with fresh water and socks and other supplies that were in great demand at the time.
She had developed a love with children that put her ambitions to become a teacher so she could teach young children and to see the fulfillment of helping them to read and write.
As a child growing up she was always the happy one as you can see for your self when you see her photos in the web site. Her smile was forever present on all her photos it just came natural to her. As a daughter parents could not ask for more a child that's was happy and was always well behaved in school she was a key stone in our family strength as a sister to her brother they were not the brother and sister that's were always fighting that never happened, they were like a team so compatible together they were not just brother and sister they were Best Friends going to Movies, Concerts and Cafe's. It was truly a blessing
her love for Malta was very strong. Vanessa had spent many summers there with us and enjoying her grand parents, aunts and uncle and friends. There Vanessa developed a strong bond with them. when she was 18 she had a tattoo on her back it was the Maltese Cross she was very proud of the rich history that Malta had and was always telling her friends here in America of her wonder full vacation's
And if you never met Vanessa you truly Missed a Special Person
.

 

I would like to thank everyone who has contributed to help build this web site and to continue visiting it as it will always be changing. Please continue to write your Condolences and Tributes, you are not limited to how many times you write. Keep the Love and the Warmth of Vanessa Spirit glowing like the flame of eternal light. Vanessa may you give us all strength as you look down upon us.
May you Rest in Peace Vanessa.

Love You Always Mom Dad & Brother Vincent

  

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 ❤❤...................ƛƝƓЄԼ....................❤❤
I sit and wait
Does an Angel contemplate my fate
And do they know
The places where we go
When we're grey and old
That salvation lets their wings unfold
So when I'm lying in my bed
Thoughts running through my head
And I feel the love is dead
I'm loving Angels instead
And through it all she offers me protection
A lot of love and affection
Whether I'm right or wrong
And down the waterfall
Wherever it may take me
I know that life won't break me
When I come to call, she won't forsake me
I'm loving Angels instead
When I'm feeling weak
And my pain walks down on a one way street
I look above
And I know I'll always be blessed with love
And as the feeling grows
She breathes flesh to my bones
And when love is dead
I'm loving Angels instead
And through it all she offers me protection
A lot of love and affection
Whether I'm right or wrong
And down the waterfall
Wherever it may take me
I know that life won't break me
When I come to call, she won't forsake me
I'm loving Angels instead
And through it all she offers me protection
A lot of love and affection
Whether I'm right or wrong
And down the waterfall
Wherever it may take me
I know that life won't break me
When I come to call. she won't forsake me
I'm loving Angels instead

 

 

 As each day dawns and starts anew
As each day ends we think of You
And in between no matter where
Deep in our hearts Your always there

 

 

 

As long as there are stars above
And moonbeams on the sea,
And just as long as there are songs
Of Love and memory 

 

 

 

 Whatever season, month or year,
This much will be the same,
The only sound of Joy will be,
The mention of Your name.

 

 

 

 Perhaps one day we’ll understand
Why God decided to take Your hand
And lead You into Heaven above
surrounded by His tender Love

 

  

 

 

 

  

 Was it only yesterday,I kissed You goodnight
But those days are now long gone
For you have grown into adulthood
The result of being born....

I am grateful for your tender years
As I thank God for your love
I had no idea on your birthday
How precious you's become

All the special memories I recall
Of your head upon my arm
With lots of fun and adventures
As I protected you from harm

Now I must let go those yesterdays
The nights I paced the floor
For You have another path to walk
To find your open door

As you grow into joy
Of finding life can hold much more
My encouragement I give
As you follow your own call

For a Daddy's love is not enough
There's courage needed on your way
As you put your hand into the hand of God
My part will be to pray.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 No more to see Your smiling face,
Nothing will ever take its place,
In our hearts You will always stay,
While we await that 'One Sweet Day'

 

 

 

 

 

 

That 'One Sweet Day' in Heaven above,
Where we will meet and affirm our Love.
Once more our arms will hold You tight,
As in God's presence we'll reunite

Until that day, we must live our lives
Ensuring each memory of You survives,
And feel Your presence, ever near,
each time we shed each painful tear. 

 

 

 

 

 
  

 

"See you in Heaven",You'll hear us say,
As You watch over us every day,
Then when our lives on earth are done
We know You'll be the one to come.

On March 29th we once again came together to walk in

Memory of Vanessa

 The Missing


We know you have gone to a better place
But it’s hard to understand why
Every where we go we feel that you’re with us
But it’s the wanting to see you again is hard
Day & night we have the same feeling
The wanting, the sadness, the missing
And especially now that the holidays are here
Till we meet again my love the Missing
Will always be apart of us

Love Mom, Dad & Brother Vincent

 

 

A Candle to shine with love & a prayer

for You to know You are

close to us always

Wish You were here with us .

The Wings Of An Angel
So Pure And So White,
The Wings Of An Angel
Holding You Tight,
The Wings Of An Angel
Caressing Your Skin,
The Wings Of An Angel
Keeping The Love Within.
These Wings From An Angel
Are My Gift To You,
These Wings From An Angel
Will Help See You Through

 

 

May Angels surround You

Peace enfolds You

&

God's Goodness Bless You

 

You'll take us gently by the hand,
and lead us to God's Heavenly land,
where all together we will be,
our, once more, happy family. 
 

 

 

 

 

Vanessa's favorite beach in Gozo

 You meant so much to all of Us
You were Special and that's no lie
You Brightened up the Darkest Day
And the Cloudiest Sky

Your Smile alone warmed Hearts
Your Laugh was like Music to Hear
We would give absolutely anything
To have You well and standing near

Not a second passes
When You're not on our Minds
Your Love we will never forget
The hurt will ease in time

Many tears We have seen and cried
They have all poured out like rain
We know that You are Happy now
And no longer in any Pain.

YOUR LOVING FAMILY 

       

The angels gathered near your bed
so very close to you
For they knew the pain and suffering
That you were going through

I thought about so many things
As I held tightly to your hand
Oh, how I wish that you were strong
and happy once again

But your eyes were looking homeward
To the place beyond the sky
Where Jesus held his streched out arms
It was time to say good-bye

I struggled with my selfish thoughts
For I wanted you to stay
So we could walk and talk again
Like we did just yesterday

But Jesus knew the answer
And I knew he loved you so
So I gave to you Life's Greatest Gift
The Gift of Letting Go

Now my heart will carry memories
Of the love you gave to me
Until we meet again in Heaven
Where the best is yet to be.......

You'll always be the Love of My Life, Vanessa.

Love,
Mommy




Your presence We Miss,
Your Memory We Treasure,
Loving You Always,
Forgetting You NEVER

Your life was a blessing
your memory a treasure...
You are loved beyond words
and missed beyond measure

The Wings Of An Angel
So Pure And So White,
The Wings Of An Angel
Holding You Tight,
The Wings Of An Angel
Caressing Your Skin,
The Wings Of An Angel
Keeping The Love Within.
These Wings From An Angel
Are My Gift To You,
These Wings From An Angel
Will Help See You Through

 

 



VANESSA touched the hearts of all who knew her and left her footprints wherever she walked.

We were blessed with VANESSA on July 29 th 1982

Always loving, always loved, to know VANESSA was to love her and to be loved unconditionally

VANESSA was truly an amazing person full of life, laughter, loving and full of fun.

VANESSA certainly stood out in a crowd and made her presence known.

Independent, strong, intelligent, loving and caring beyond belief

Dedicated to God, her family and friends

In "VANESSA's Eyes" everyone was equal, she treated everyone the same

If you ever had the honor of meeting VANESSA you know she wasn't shy, she'd introduce herself immediately, to everyone she met, smiling, eyes full of love, she'd hug you and you'd be welcomed with a warm loving hug.


When her body would fail her VANESSA would become stronger spiritually and fight her illness harder
No matter what she had to go through physically VANESSA never gave up her belief that God would heal her completely one day and she could fulfill all her dreams and have a long healthy life, we believed it also.

VANESSA battled her illness for a year and a half with courage, faith, dignity, perseverence and true commitment to God, to her family and friends.

VANESSA was healed from her failing body, just not the way we'd hoped for

July 29th,2006 VANESSA had her birthday .She had turned 24 She was surrounded with family,friends.We all sang her a Happy Birthday exactly the same time she was born.Everybody read her birthday card and Vanessa had tears .It was a very sad moment for us and her firends. Jesus took our VANESSA home to Heaven July 31st,2006 very peacefully.

She's now in Heaven, Our Special Angel VANESSA.

Knowing what a remarkable person she was, even with an unhealthy body.....

Can you imagine how fantastic she is as an Angel????

Help us keep VANESSA memory alive in our love for her and the beautiful memories we all have, please share them, light candles as often as you'd like.
Hopefully all our memories and lit candles will provide some comfort to us and her friends, all who love and miss her, beyond belief!!!!

Love and Miss You Beautiful VANESSA((Bubbie)) soooo very, very much!!!!



 

A Message to my Daughter
We walked together, you and I
A Mother and her Daughter
We had Hopes and Dreams for tomorrow.....
But tomorrow didn't come.
We walked together you and I
We talked, we laughed we loved.
We shared so many happy times,
And for that I thank the Lord above.
We walked together, you and I
But only for a short time.
For all too soon it ended
Leaving pieces of a broken heart behind
And even though I miss you
More than words could ever say.
I thank God that I got to walk with you
Every precious moment of every day....







Forever we will miss you,
Forever we will cry,
Why did you have to leave this earth
And gain your wings to fly?

You know we loved you dearly,
More than anyone could know,
Why did you have to leave so soon
Why did you have to go?

Our hearts down here are broken,
And it can never mend,
Forever we protected you,
Until the very end.

We pray to God for answers,
We talk to him each day,
We hope that you can hear us Lord
As on bended knees we pray.

Take good care of our child up there,
She was much wanted here,
Wrap your arms around her please
And tell her we still care,

Let her know we love her so
And will forever more.
Keep her protected, safe and warm
And wrapped in love so pure.




 



 

God gave me a Child Sweet and Fair
Pink Face and Golden Red Hair
A Smile so Big it won My Heart
I didn't know how soon we'd part!


Thoughtful , Loving and Always Bright
Cheery and Kind,the Light of My Life
Faithful to God since the day of Her Birth
To Sweet an Angel to Stay on Earth


Always a Smile,Never a Frown
The Pain Vanessa stood ,would get anyone down
This Trial Vanessa suffered without asking Why?
The Brave way Vanessa fought things,still makes me cry.


Vanessa was on this Earth for a short while
And lessons she taught us in great style
To be Strong,have Faith,and don't ask Why?
And when that day comes please don't cry.


We Miss Vanessa down here and We Always will
Her Place in Our Hearts no one can fill
I'll Remember her words and then,the tears start
''But Mommy,she said,We'll Always be together in Our Hearts''


Her time came early,but Vanessa saw the Light
Turn it off Mommy,beacuse it's too Bright
No my Baby,that's ''God and St.Anne''
Close Your eyes and take their Hand


She closed her eyes and slipped away
And left Us here on St.Ignatious of Loyola Day
The Tears,the Pain will she ever know
How much I MISS HER SO.


Lovingly Remembered
and
Sadly Missed
Mom,Dad and Brother Vincent

Our Hearts are Filled with Your Memory
Our Dreams with Your Sweet Angel Face....
But Our Arms are Forever Empty now
And You are Safe in God's Precious Embrace.









Since Heaven has become your home
I sometimes feel I’m so alone;
And though we now are far apart
You hold a big piece of my heart
I never knew how much I’d grieve
When it was time for you to leave,
Or just how much my heart would ache
From that one fragment you would take.
Each morning when we awake we know that you are gone.
And no one knows the heartaches as we try to carry on.
Our hearts still ache with sadness and secret tears still flow.
What it means to lose you no one will ever know.
Our thoughts are always with you, your place no one can fill.
In life we loved you dearly; in death we love you still.
There will always be a heartache, and often a silent tear,
But always a precious memory of the days when you were here,
We hold you close within our hearts; and there you will remain.
To walk with us throughout our lives until we meet again.




My Sister
My Guardian Angel

You were my Beautiful Sister
Who I now keep inside my Heart
Because the Bond Brother and Sister share
Nothing could ever part

You were my Precious Angel
Who was always there for me
Always having a Beautiful Smile
For everyone to see

I know that You can hear me
As I talk to you each night
I can still see your Precious Face
Oh what a Beautiful Star

Thank you for Being So Wonderful
And know that we’ll Never Part
Because Brothers & Sisters Share a Bond
That even Death can never Part

In Loving Memory
Of
My Sister




To my loving Sister

May the angels whisper in your ear
You are loved and never alone

May the angels light your path
And wrap a shield of protection around you

May the angels spread their light
And hold you in their arms

You will forever be in my heart
With love your Brother




We do not need a special day to bring you to our minds.
The days we do not think of you are very hard to find.
Each morning when we awake we know that you are gone.
And no one knows the heartache as we try to carry on.
Our hearts still ache with sadness and secret tears still flow.
What it meant to lose you no one will ever know.
Our thoughts are always with you, your place no one can fill.
In life we loved you dearly; in death we love you still.
There will always to be a heartache and often a silent tear.
But always a precious memory of the days when you were here.
If tears would make a staircase and heartaches make a lane,
We'd walk the path to heaven and bring you home again.
We'd hold you close within our hearts; and there you will remain,
To walk with us throughout our lives until we meet again.
Our family chain is broken now and nothing seems the same,
But as God calls us one by one, the chain will link again.




May this candle burn forever
in memory of you, VANESSA
Always Loved, Never Forgotten












 

 

We just wanted to create a place that anyone could visit and share a story about Our Vanessa. Please feel free to share any memory you have. We would appreciate anything you write. Our Vanessa left behind a legacy that will never be forgotten. Her strength, determination and willingness to survive was indescribable. She fought Colon Cancer until the end . We want everyone to know that Our Vanessa never gave up. She never ONCE complained about anything she went through. She knew what she had to do and she did it. Doctor's couldn't believe what they were seeing with Our Vanessa, she simply amazed them! We all could learn a little from Our Vanessa. Its really hard going though this knowing how hard she fought. For those of you who knew her and didn't see her in the Hospital, she was totally amazing. She didn't even know how strong she was. We think when things start getting tough to handle, we all should realize how petty things are and think about the important things in life. Love, Life, Laughter, oh how important these are!! We know Our Vanessa would want us all to enjoy life and remember the little things that make memories because those memories will be precious to us all someday.

Thank you for visiting

Vanessa you are Deeply missed and Always Remembered!!
