Lily

 
I wonder if she realizes
That the place where she now is
Is as much more rich
And full
As the place where I now am
Is paler
And emptier.

She looks like an angel in that first picture...probably because she is. We are thinking of you and Lily today.

She was a perfect little peanut! Holding her in the hospital when she was born and wondering where the rest of her was...one of my favorite memories. Love that girl!!

Beautiful Girl. Beautiful Momma. Amazing Daddy and Brother. (And let's not forget the spunkster Little Sis.) Beautiful Family!

Love you, MaryBeth for all you are and the hell you've been through to inspire me to be a better person in practically every aspect of my life. ((HUGS))

Such a beautiful girl! I'm sorry for you were not able to have her for longer in this life. I'm sorry for the heartache that today brings you and your family. I'm thankful that you are blessed to call her YOURS...Forever! We are thinking of you today. ((HUGS))

I hadn't read that poem before. That's nice. Sad, but very nice. How was Chilli's?

Monday night during our family home evening lesson,(on trials), one of my kids brought you and your family up when we were talking about how some people have been through so much more than any of us could imagine in this earthly life. I then remembered it was actually the anniversary of Lily's death and we had a little moment thinking of you guys and praying for you. Love you MaryBeth. ♥

I should know better than to read an entry about lily, no matter how short, and not expect to break down in tears. Love you guys.
