In Memoriam

This site is dedicated to the memory of Maia Grace Newland. She was climbing the SCT mountain at the same time as our son Elijah. She survived for ten precious hours before passing into the eternal embrace of her Heavenly Father. She will always be remembered in heart and mind with our son and fellow climber.


I Saw You Today

I saw you today in the sunset.

You were a beautiful mixture of pink and orange.

I was amazed at your beauty.

All I could do was stare.


I saw you today in the clouds.

You floated and danced in the wind.

You briefly covered up the sun,

And I saw your shadow on the mountains.


I saw you today in a rainbow,

Through a tiny window of the airplane.

As we turned and you were gone,

Your brother reminded me that you’re always with us.


I saw you today everywhere I went.

You were the little girl at the park,

You looked at me through Daddy’s eyes at dinnertime,

Your light burns brightly in the candle on our dinner table.


I saw you today.

I’ll see you tomorrow.

I’ll hold you in Heaven.


Kara Newland
