'What the caterpillar perceives is the end, to the butterfly is just the beginning'

Tomorrow I will be going to sweet baby Luke's memorial service.My heart is heavy and I am void of all words that could possibly come close to making sense of the the loss of one so young.For a mere 16 months precious Luke graced this earth.His presence here shone a beautiful radiant light into the lives of so many.The pain of his absence here will be felt for always.Tomorrow I pray that God,with his unwavering promise never to abandon us,will strengthen and carry Luke's family through what is sure to be an extremely heart wrenching and difficult day.

Peace little butterfly .... "May the choirs of angels come to greet you.
May they speed you to paradise.
May the Lord enfold you, in His mercy.
May you find eternal life."

His family is in our prayers. My pediatrician asked me if it was a good idea for me to go to a funeral of a good friends baby that was downs. How can I not? It was so hard but also good to pay my respects to the beautiful little fighter.

Hi there. We will be in Simi April 6-10. The whole week is pretty open. We go down to Disneyland on the 11th. Do you think Zoey will be back in for treatments? Or do you think she will be home?
