In memory of Freddie George Petrie

By Kate Petrie

In Honour of Freddie

This page pays tribute to the short but beautiful life of Freddie George Petrie, our gorgeous little angel.  Taken from us too early, but always loved and remembered. 

As Freddie's legacy, we would like to raise funds for Sands and Red Nose to help support other bereaved families in their time of need. So please, help us raise much-needed funds to ensure every bereaved family has access to the support they need, for as long as they need it.

Thank you.


An Angel Never Dies - Karen O'Connor 


Don't let them say I wasn't born,
That something stopped my heart
I felt each tender squeeze you gave,
I've loved you from the start.

Although my body you can't hold,
It doesn't mean I'm gone,
This world was worthy, not of me,
God chose that I move on.

I know the pain that drowns your soul,
What you are forced to face.
You have my word, I'll fill your arms,
Someday we will embrace.

You'll hear that it was "meant to be, God doesn't make mistakes,"
But that won't soften your worst blow,
Or make your heart not ache.

I'm watching over all you do,
Another child you'll bear,
Believe me when I say to you,
That I am always there.

There will come a time, I promise you,
When you will hold my hand,
Stroke my face and kiss my lips, a
nd then you'll understand.

Although I've never breathed your air,
Or gazed into your eyes
That doesn't mean I never "was"
An Angel never dies.

Thank you to my Sponsors
