IN MEMORY OF
ANTONIA STELLA CELESTINO

born 11/25/99 and died 11/25/99.
Remembered by Mommy:
I remember you, my Antonia, with a beautiful song by Dave Koz and BeBe Winans. It may not have originally been written about a mom and baby, but is about how precious life is, and about living life with gratitude and without fear. That is what having you has taught me. The words to the song go like this:

Looking back on the memory of
the dance we shared 'neath the stars above
for a moment all the world was right
how could I have known that you'd ever say goodbye

And now I'm glad I didn't know
the way it all would end
the way it all would go
our lives are better left to chance
I could have missed the pain
but I'd have had to miss the dance.

Holding you I held everything
for a moment wasn't I a king
but if I'd only known how the king would fall
hey who's to say you know I might have changed it all.

And now I'm glad I didn't know
the way it all would end
the way it all would go
our lives are better left to chance
I could have missed the pain
but I'd have had to miss the dance.

Daddy and I miss you, Antonia, and we thank you for the dance - we wouldn't have missed it for the world!
