Goodbye Sweet Girl

I know my last post said "Blah".
It's still pretty blah, but never so blah that I won't take the time to honor the memory
of one of our beloved children.

Our sweet girl left us last night.

She had so many close calls in her short life, we hoped that this would be another.
That she would again defy all the predictions about her. That she would again rally.
That she would again come home to the people who loved her.
But, this time, it was not to be.

She did go home, just not back to St. Mary's.
We won't see her incredibly sweet face anymore except in our hearts & memories.

What I wouldn't give to see her as she is now - whole, not struggling for every breath,
laughing as she runs to greet the angels.

Goodbye sweetheart.

(I haven't had to put one of these up in a very long time. That in itself is a blessing.)

I am sorry, Kathy.

Just remember that she is whole now and as she was always meant to be. And she surely left the world just a little bit better for her presence in it.

My thoughts are with you and yours.

Thanks Rosie. And Mar, she did indeed lift the spirits of everyone here with her extraordinarily sweet face.
