Prayers and love are coming from our house to all the family and friends of Natalee as you celebrate her birthday, once more without her here with you. Remember though, she is here with you always in spirit, and all you have to do is listen and she will speak to you. This amazing little girl has captured the hearts and souls of millions of people and her memory will always live on, what a great testament to who Natalee was. May you find comfort in knowing your love for her, and her love for you has stretched across the world to touch so many people, it is absolutely wondrous. I will hug my little boy a little bit longer than usual on Natalee's birthday in honor of her and light a candle in her name at Mass. May God bring you all peace today, and may God bring justice for Natalee.

As the past 2+ yeras roll by.. I find words fail me more and more often. What do you say.. what can you say, to comfort to those whos  lives contain such a large  gapping wound as the word 'missing' when it's partnered by the name of your loved one?  Sad
 We continue searching, for answers, for reason, for justice!!! Someday the truth will be known..!
Happy Birthday Natalee... I know that wherever you are.. God is with you... holding you tight.  May God send peace to your family on this day and let them know that you are safe and protected by him always.  No one has forgotten you- and we never will~!! Fly high freebird.

Beth, Dave, Matt, "The Cuz", Members of Natlaee's family..  God Bless you all.

Nat,

I wish He selected me, instead of you.! I would make the
trade in a minute flat, so you could come home to your
family.

We will get the people who did this to you!, sweetheart.

Failure is not an option.

You and your family are always
in my prayers.

Happy b-day, luv.

Happy Birthday Natalee.  Based on everything we know, you're walking and dancing with angels now.  You found your way to the light.  No pain, no fear.  As Eric Clapton said, "There'll be no tears in heaven."  We all make plans for our lives never knowing what God has in store for us.  We don't know His reasons.  But with His help, we'll keep trying to make the world a better place and because of the love and strength of your family, Natalee, a lot of people came together to fight that battle.  God Bless all those who are struggling with the loss of someone in their lives as well as those who fight for truth, justice and love.

Happy Birthday Natalee.  Nothing I like better that a party, is a reason to throw a party.  Wish you were here, now and many times.  Wherever you are, we want you to come home.  Always.  If only it were as simple as clicking your heels together three times.

The bear and I agree Angie.  There just are not words.  I believe Natalee is with God and could not be more protected, but her family needs our prayers.  I continue to pray for their peace and justice for all.

Happy Birthday, Natalee.

It's hard to know what to say on an occasion that should be happy, but is a reminder of a terrible tragedy. The following prayer can say it better than I can:

O God of grace and glory, we remember before you this day our sister Natalee. We thank you for giving her to us, her family and friends, to know and to love as a companion on our earthly pilgrimage. In your boundless compassion, console us who mourn. Give us faith to see in death the gate of eternal life, so that in quiet confidence we may continue our course on earth, until by your call, we are reunited with those who have gone before.

Natalee,
     You have brought alot of people together, yet you were not here to do that.  We never got to meet you, but we all feel we know you.  We know NOT all the facts right now, but someday the world will know.  May you and your family look at this day, and have good thoughts of when you were here with them.  We are still here for you to get the justice you very much deserve.  Wow, the big 21, thats a BIG step.  I know you'll be watching. 
We will NEVER give up!

For Beth:  Being a mom, I know this is one of the most important dates in your life.  As you remember your beautiful daughter on this day, my hope is that you will find comfort knowing so many people are thinking of her also.  Your love for her, and your strength through this ordeal has touched so many.  I don't know Natalee, but I am thinking of her and praying for your family everyday.  I read your book, and it only confirmed what an amazing and beautiful spirit your daughter has.  I am comforted knowing she is in God's hands, and is patiently waiting to be with her loved ones again.

Ode to Natalee:

Listen do you hear
Listen to our song for Natalee


Glory we sing
now we hear
as the Angels sing
Natalee.....
Natalee.....
born on the twenty-first day

Joy lifts our hearts
your face we embrace
Natalee....
Natalee....
born on this special day

a baby
a little girl
a young lady
my how you have grown
Your face we embrace

Your name always in our hearts
your name always on our lips in prayer
to G_d we sing
This is the day you were born!

Natalee...
Natalee...
today we make a wish
on this day we sing
Natalee...
Natalee...

Shhhh!!!! do you hear
the angels wings
softly
they gather
and still the storm

for Natalee
Love has come home





HAPPY BIRTHDAY NATALEE









Amphibiously yours,

Kermit the Frog

So many "mile-markers" should have been celebrated with her family. This day is one of them, and my heart goes out to those who will remember Natalee's voice and smile today. I know that the love they shared transcends all barriers and still thrives. 

I am grateful for the strength, faith, and determination of Natalee's Mother, for through her, Natalee's character was born and fostered and Natalee became a young woman full of promise and potential. The world has embraced your daughter, Beth, and has reached out to you and her entire family with desire to comfort and assist. That unity has brought comfort to countless others, as is God's way; His ripples are far reaching.

Your daughter's accomplishments did not end in Aruba. Her impact on the world goes on, and through her, we are a little safer, a little wiser, a little less lonely and self absorbed. Through Natalee, our hearts are more tender, our capacity for empathy has grown, and maybe we remember to hug our loved ones a bit more.

Natalee and her family had goals: attending college, graduation, weddings, and births. The goals were too small. Because of Natalee, countless people have pondered "Over The Rainbow" and directed their focus to that place. That's what Natalee is still achieving. We were all blessed by her birth and so today, I will say a prayer of gratitude for her and ask God to continue to hold her family in His protective hands. Happy Birthday, Natalee!

A  twenty first birthday is a celebration of life of what has been up to now and what is to come in the persons future.  From Natalee’s family and friends we have learned the kind of girl she was and how she lived her life.  Then many people became involved in following the circumstances of that tragic night two and a half years ago and the obfuscation and deceit that has followed to the benefit of the guilty parties. These scores of people from many parts of the world became united in their quest for truth and justice as Natalee became to them like their own daughter, sister, niece or friend who could have met the same fate in similar circumstances.  The uniting of these people through the internet also engendered close friendships as many found they had other interests in common as well.

Natalee’s future is to be the legacy she has left for us to follow on her behalf as a commitment of educating our young people as to the dangers in travel, both overseas and within our own countries, and replacing their naivety as to the evil that can be in others. 

God bless Beth and all of Natalee’s family and give them peace, answers and eventual justice for their loved one.  We will continue to support you for however long it takes until your quest is complete.

God Bless you Natalee and may you fly high and free with the Angels.
