  Hello - I came across this site quite by accident, but I think I was led here. I am an oboist, and also a mother. My first child was born only a few months after your Missy. He died just six weeks after his second birthday. I have always thought of him as a little toddler because that is how old he was, but it took some years before I realized that most of the other little children born that same year were growing up to be adults!
What a wonderful tribute to your daughter this website is. As a parent who has lost a child, I know the unbearable grief you must have felt when you lost her. We can heal, but a part of us is changed forever.
In my life, we moved on, as we had to. Four more children came after Allan died, and each one is a blessing.

My favorite memory of Allan also involves the oboe! I was playing the Mozart Quartet for oboe and strings and insisted that Allan should hear a concert at his early age. We were performing in a Cathedral, and I could see my husband put Allan down in the aisle. He could't walk, even though he was 20 months old, but he could crawl - fast! He managed to get to his Mama and pull himself up on my knee, and he said " Mama, awbo, Mama awbo (oboe)".
I'm sure that you have many years of wonderful memories of your Missy. Thank you for letting me write this.

  "I can have faith that I am where he wants me to be. I know that God will not let anything stop his plan for my life." Such inspiring words from a wonderful woman of God.
I've been thinking about you all for some time now, I look at Missy everyday, as well as your family on my fridge. I shared this site with my friends at work today, they were touched. I loved what Marc had to say about her, it brought tears to my eyes.
I love you all and miss you tons. I wish i could be with my 'second' family like I used to be able to, but Honolulu is too far. :o) God bless, and thank you for all that you have done. Love you all!

  Our sovereign Lord's timing is always perfect. Now was His time for this to come forth. What a blessing. We love you! And we love the memory of dear Missy. Marc's description reminds us how "precious in the sight of the Lord is the death of His saints!" He was there to receive her and he holds her in his bosom. What a merciful and caring Lord. He has continued to do the same for you two dear ones, holding you both to His breast and granting you His mercy to carry on. You both mean so much to us, and we will never cease to pray for the Lord's watchcare over you, and for His ways of investing Missy's life into others as long as time shall last. With sorrow mingled with joy, DB

  There is not a day that goes by, when I do not think of Missy. Her picture hangs on my refrigerator...smiling out at me with her arm around my daughter..faces painted...happy...she will always be that 8 year old little girl in my eyes...shining.

I love you Steve and Wanda...

  Missy's memory lives on in the lives that God had her touch. Her friendship and strength was such a witness to me, and will always be with me. God is so amazing in how he uses tragedy to teach people about who He is. Then He brings back joy!
I love you very much.
Psalms 20:11-12
You have turned my mourning into joyful dancing. You have taken away my clothes of mourning and clothed me with joy, that I might sing praises to you and not be silent. O Lord my God, I will give you thanks forever!

  Dear Steve and Wanda:

What a blessed gift from the Lord through the EMT, Marc Combs. After these six years he shares such tender moments that he had with our precious Missy. Thank you Jesus and Papa in Heaven for sending this gift of words and love to our family. Please share a hug with her from all of us. We miss her so.

Officer Marc Combs from Santa Maria area

  I was the first officer to arrive on scene at Missy's accident. I am an EMT and the paramedics showed up just after me. Because I am an EMT and had been on the job for 20 years at that time, I knew we were going to lose Missy. Let me tell you now... she was unconscious and unresponsive. I'm not saying this to make you feel better; I'm saying this because I am a Christian and servant of Jesus Christ our Lord. I attend Calvary Chapel of Santa Maria and serve as a worship leader. As I looked around the accident scene, I saw her oboe music and the family pictures which I picked up with the sheet music. I also saw that she attended Biola. The pictures made me cry... The Holy Spirit told me who she was... a Saint of God. So at that moment I stopped, bowed my head and prayed to our Lord to welcome this Saint into His Kingdom. I'm sorry it took so long for me to tell you this, but know, at that moment the Holy Spirit was present, the Angels were present to escort her to Heaven and I was there as a witness to tell the story. All these things occurred exactly according to the will of the Lord. Amen.
The Lord Bless thee and keep thee,
The Lord make His face to shine upon thee, and be gracious unto thee,
The Lord lift up His countenance,
