The Kara Program

 The Kara Program was created in honor of our beloved first granddaughter and niece, Kara Jane Kaniewski, who passed away unexpectedly a month before her much anticipated birth.  In honor of her memory, the Kaniewski Family will donate all services to any parents experiencing the tragic loss of their pre-term/stillborn son or daughter.

Our Little Angel

Our Little Angel will always be   
A precious gift and memory,
Our time's brief, our hours few,
To make and mold a life that's new.
But through the tears and burdens great,
Our prayers for strength will emanate.
A glimmer of hope will show the way,
For us to go on from day to day.

"I have held many things in my hands, and have lost them all; but whatever I have placed in God's hands, that I still possess."

- Martin Luther, Founder of the Lutheran Church

 

When God calls little children to dwell with Him above, we mortals always question the wisdom of His love.  For no heartache can compare with the death of one small child who does so much to make the world seem wonderful and mild.  Perhaps God tires - always calling the aged to His fold and so He picks a rosebud before it can grow.  God knows how much we need them and so He picks but a few to make the land of Heaven more beautiful to view.  Believing this is difficult still somehow we must try.  The saddest word that mankind knows will always be "goodbye."  And so when little ones depart, we who are left behind must realize how much God loves children, for angels are hard to find.
