and in her short lived life she loved most, her brother and sister.
what a happy little girl she was.
it is amazing to me ,how much you love someone in such little time. there is hope after a rain storm..
Jonas and Whisper still talk about her to this day
but always good, and they were there to witness her death.
they whatched her being pulled out from under that car..
what amazing stories the nurses told , about her fight to live.
everytime a nurse brought up your family will be here
she would breathe on her own.. they said she smiled when she died. my dad and I built her coffin with her name in pretty
purple letters on the side. I lined it with purple satin
and my aunt made her a quilt and pillow with lace around
the edges.. sometime when I think of her ,I see her blowing bubbles in HEAVEN.. her place in the cemetry is always
beautiful ,with flowers that match every season.
butterflies are everywhere ,she is in the moutains where
the sun fills the sky every morning, and leaves her with a sunset.
to all my hopes and dreams I could never ask God for anymore
than what he has gave me.. that most wonderful 16 months
with WILLOW. suzie willows mommy..
