Remembering Ava Rae

January 31, 2008 - May 7, 2008

Angel Ava,

Tomorrow will be two years since I last held and kissed you. I know that you are in a better place and free from pain, but I continue to miss you every day and selfishly wish you were still here with mommy, daddy and your brothers. We are blessed with the three months that we did get to hold you and continue to be blessed with the memory of you and the love that fills our hearts for you.

You have been not only a blessing to us but the many others who know your story. We have been able to see true courage and strength with your fight. You were one amazing little girl while you were here on earth, I can only imagine what you are like in Heaven.

You are in our thoughts continously and will be forever. We love you and miss you every day. We are so proud of you and thankful that God blessed us with the chance to be your parents (and brothers). Kaden still talks about you and tells us the things he thinks you would like if you were still here. Brody is learning to say your name (he does pretty good actually) and is always looking at the picture of you in mommy's locket. You are still a part of our family, even though you are not here. We love you baby girl and miss you more then words can say.

Forever and Always,
mommy, daddy, Kaden (bubby) and Brody

I just wanted to say it's hard to believe it's been two years since you held and kissed your beautiful baby girl. I an so thankful that grandpa and I were able to spend some time with her before she went to heaven. And I thank God he picked you and Nate and your families to be the caregivers of such a precious gift. Today is our anniversary 5/7/88 and we went out for supper and then I was drawn to the blog as I felt I wanted to spend sometime with Ava. I've been here almost an hour reading the blog and looking at the pictures of Ava over and over as the music played in the background through tears at times but it's given me a good feeling to be here and I wanted to share this with you.
Take good care and always remember how much we love you and your family.
Love, Grandpa and Grandma A

I know that Ava looks down at you and smiles everyday!

I just wanted you to know that I always think about you and hope that you are having a wonderful Mother's Day.

Love always,

I was just thinking of Ava and wanted to stop by to tell you hello. I love to think of her and look at her photos. I hope that you all are well.
