Anelisa Diane Dillion 3/1/86-7/14/00

Her favorite color was pink. Her first word was Ki Ki at almost age two, because it took me bringing a stray kitten home to get her to talk. The speech therapist said she needed motivation, and I had allergies galore. She could not walk until she pulled herself upon a small exercise trampoline to get at my friend Rhonda's pugs, then she walked around the trampoline and then to me. She was a beautiful artist. Her works one day will be on display at an art gallery for children with chronically illness or terminal ill children. She loved the Hanson's and I took her to a concert, and we waited outside until there van passed. A week before she passed a friend who worked at DFW Airport got us in the celebrity room to see the youngest and oldest Hanson brothers, and we have her picture with them. The youngest touched her shoulder and she said she would not wash that arm EVER! She also liked the Back Street Boys and saw them the week before she passed, fourth row. She loved pop music, and it drove me insane! She had a purse in almost every color of pink you could imagine, and her room was decorate in guess what color? Butterflies were all over the walls and ceiling. I still have her cat collection and now and then I buy one to place on the shelf. She was boy crazy like most fourteen year old's are. Her and her brother were 13 months apart and were best friends. They never got into trouble and always looked out for each other.


















I did not know what unconditional love really was until I had her and her brother. Every time she was in pain, I was in pain too. I miss her more than anyone will ever know. People tell me she looks just like me, but no, she possessed more beauty than I could ever imagine. Perfect teeth, hair, skin, all outside beauty, perfection. Her heart was broken, but she never gave up. Life took her because it was time. Medicine only has its limits.

Life works that way sometimes.

Anelisa I believe was and is an angel. She also is heavens top rated cat veterinarian.

Happy Birthday Sweetie Peatie- Aaron, Robert and I miss your silly ways...

My thoughts are with you. She sounds like such a gorgeous young lady & I am so, so sorry she was taken away from you so soon.

She and I would be best friends and would surely scream the loudest at concerts.

I love reading about her. Thank you for sharing your angel with us.

Very well put Liz.
Thanks for sharing Anelisa's memories again. She was very special to me too and I think about her quite often with my girls around me. I remember taking some pictures like that of her around spring time...and still have them.
Blessings,

Uncle Dillion

I am so happy I found this I miss Anelisa so much. We met at heart camp and I have been looking for y'all. I don't know if you will remember me but Anelisa was one of my best friends and thought of her as a sister.
