|Rick, Lisa, and Family,
I was saddened to hear of the sudden loss of your daughter. I wish I could find words to ease your pain and wish you and your family the best through these tough times.
You are in my thoughts,
Sending thoughts and prayers to all of you.

In the bulb there is a flower;
in the seed, an apple tree;
In cocoons, a hidden promise;
Butterflies will soon be free!
In the cold and snow of winter
there's a spring that waits to be,
Unrevealed until its season,
Something God alone can see.
Sweet Sophie, from the cocoon of your sudden illness you are now free as a butterfly. I love you and am sorry I didn't meet you in this life. I will meet you in Heaven.
My heart is aching for you...please accept my thoughts and prayers during this tragic time in your life...what a beautiful little Angel Sophia is
Lisa & Family,
I am sure no words can overcome the amount of grief you are experiencing with the loss of your precious baby girl. I am so sorry and only hope that your faith in our heavenly Father and countless prayers from your family and friends can help ease your pain.
With a saddenned heart,
You do not know me. I saw the name of your daughter in the prayers of one
of my church friends, and researched the your names to only find the
incredible loss you sustained. Having a one year old daughter myself, I
thank God for her everyday, and couldn't fathom losing her now, much less at
3 weeks old as you did yours. She was absolutely.....beautiful. I often
think to myself how good our God is, and for no reason how he can not only
give, but take life...even under the most disunderstanding of circumstances.
Although an apology from me for your loss will likely yield you no solice,
know that this has made me appreciate my family even more, and I will hold
my daughter a little tighter tonight as I hold her. Finally, it's not our
place to understand what God does and why....nor do we have to like
it....but in just seeing her face, it's clear to me that He wants that
perfect little miracle with Him. God bless you, and I hope God blesses you
with the comfort that you de!
serve at a time like this.
