Aurea Olivia Byrne

BYRNE, Aurea Olivia

July 23, 2011 – December 03, 2011

It is with the greatest sadness that we announce the sudden passing of our beloved baby girl, Aurea. Mourning her tragic loss are her loving and devoted parents Jessica Hudson and Zack Byrne, her big sister Imehjen, her many adoring grandparents, aunts, uncles and so very many other dear family and friends.


“Daddy please don’t look so sad, momma, please don’t cry.

‘Cause I’m in the arms of Jesus, and he sings me lullabies.

Please try not to question God, don’t think he is unkind.

Don’t think he sent me to you and then changed his mind.

You see I’m a special child, I am needed up above.

I’m the special gift you gave Him, a product of your love.

I’ll always be there with you, so watch the sky at night.

Look for the brightest star and know that’s my halo’s brilliant light.

You’ll see me in the morning frost that mists your windowpane.

That’s me in the summer showers. I’ll be dancing in the rain.

When you feel a gentle breeze from a gentle wind that blows,

Know that it’s me planting a kiss upon your nose.

When you see a child playing and your heart feels a tug,

Don’t be sad mommy, that’s just me giving your heart a hug.

So daddy, don’t look so sad and momma please don’t cry.

I’m in the arms of Jesus and he sings me lullabies.”
