Many prayers for you and your family. I'm sure she already made plenty of angel friends but I know she's got a fun buddy to giggle with now.  I bet that she welcomed Riley to Heaven with a big hug and they're just waiting on all of us to get there.    (((((((HUGS)))))))) from my heart to yours.

we continue to lift you all up in prayer.   I hope you can find some kind of peace knowing that Shania is right there in the presence of the Lord..   How amazing it must be.   it's only a short time before you will see her again, as life is only a blink of an eye.   Cherish each day..  I can't imagine how hard it is.   But always remember that there are so many of us that pray for you.  We ask God to help you through each day.

May the Lord Bless you and keep you, may HE shine his face on you, and may He bring you peace.

Let us be reminded of what Captain John Parker told his army at Lexington Green, the place where the War for Independence began in 1775. He said, “Stand your ground. Don’t fire unless fired upon, but if they mean to have a war, let it begin here.

Hello, its been 10 long months now and i cannot believe that my baby is gone. I visit her every day and never want to leave. I have another daughter Hadley, her and i were talking the other day and she told me that she misses her shania. That was the heart yanker right there. we both know she is in a far better place than we are. It is hard to accept that my baby is gone, and there is not a person in this world who can tell me why this had to happen to shannon and myself ? Shannon if you ever read this i know Shania is looking down on all three of us. Shania baby, i know you can see this, and I LOVE YOU so much and miss you something fierce. love Daddy.

Tab-
For some reason each time you post on this website I read what you have written! The Lord has a purpose for this! I hope you have gotten my previous two emails. I'm not sure if you have or not.

I would encourage you to continue praying for strength. When you rise for the day ask God to help you thru just today, to set your mind on a straight thought pattern. To allow you to understand your circumstances. God will carry you thru. The Lord is always there, no matter what day or what time, God hears your prayers! Have you ever read the book- A PURPOSE DRIVEN LIFE? This is a great book, it helps you understand lots of things that life sets before us.

I see Donna and Shannon very often, I say alittle prayer for them each time.

God bless you as the days go by!

Yes i did recieve your two e-mails. And yes i do pray everyday every second of every minute and nothing seems to help. The only thing that keeps me going is my youngest daughter Hadley. She is my main purpose in life. Thank you for caring and God Bless.

I wish there was some way I could help but it is going to take time and from the people I have talked to that have lost a child the pain never goes completely away. They have just learned to live with it. My daughter lost a child a few years back a. She had one before and two after. For her having the 2 others later easied the pain some what. On the day of the funeral my uncle the pastor said "Just think about how Joseph felt as he looked up from the hole his brothers had thrown him in then they sold him". God can make good out of the most horrible things. We just can't even imagine what it is and why when it happens. To me it help me through the times when the Doctors where saying the is no hope for Benjamin. May God shine his face upon you and give you peace.
This came to me while chopping wood the other day. You've heard don't sweat the small stuff. I say save it for later and use it for kindling

My prayer for you is that the Lord can give you peace and comfort  to help ease your pain. 
I lost a daughter in 1984.  She was only 8 days old.  I know that some will say that how could I have loved her so very much when she was so young, but you do, oh, how you do.  I would see a little girl at the age she would be for years and it would bring me such sadness.  Finally, yes, finally the Lord helped me to see how happy that little girl was and that my Kelly IS far happier becasue she is with Him.  The pain and tears will ease after a awhile, but never the love you feel for your daughter.  Embrace the love, and allow God is heal over the pain.  Don't try to set a schedule on when this will all happen, it will happen when you and God are ready.  May the Lord bless you and keep you in the palm of His hand.  (((((((HUGS))))))))
