Another Angel ....

News came earlier today that sweet Sol Merie has earned her angel wings.Tuesday,while loading Zoey's things into the car I ran into Sol Merie's Dad Alex.He was getting ready to bring the car around for Sol Merie and her mom.I popped outside, kissed Sol Merie and her mom and told them we loved them.I knew the time was drawing near.Today my heart is heavy at the loss of this sweet child.I will forever remember her as the joyful, impish,kiss blowing,face making darling child she was.I will forever remember her as Zoey's counterpart, joined together by an extra chromosome as well as a fight against a dreaded foe.I will forever struggle in understanding why her cure was not to be.I will forever be blessed and better for knowing this very perfect,very precious child.

"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."

Wow, that seems fast. She looked so good in that last pic with Zoey. So sorry for the loss of another friend. It never gets any easier and I don't think we'll ever understand why they take these angels from us.

Heather,
I am so sorry to hear the news of Sol Merie's passing. I know how much she and her family meant to you and Zoey. I will keep her family in my prayers.
I hope you and Zoey are settled and
enjoying your time at home with everyone together, knowing that you don't have to pack up again for CHLA! Rest and enjoy each other. I look forward to seeing
you and Zoey soon.
Love, Michelle

Heather...this is the second post in a row that you have brought me to tears. The last one was happy tears but this time my heart just breaks. I knew the time was coming but it still is painful. I don't know what made me feel so connected to this little girl that I have never met. I think it is that photo of her and Zoey with her dad that just touched me so. I pray for peace for the family as that is all we can do.

I'm so sorry to hear of Zoey's little friend passing. I know we are not suppose to question these things, but it is hard when little ones are taken away to be with the angels.

Hope things are otherwise okay in the Needham household.

Take care

Oh, I am just so choked up and so sad to read this news. My prayers are with her family!

Michelle said...

Oh this news breaks my heart once again. I know in this life we probably will never fully understand why she was taken, why all children suffer and are taken so young. The ONE thing that keeps me going is know God loves us so much and He has a plan...those children taken early must have been so valiant...they have work to do on the other side. Our prayers are with their family...and you my friend. I miss you very very much. We will probably be putting our house on the market Monday...keep prayer going this all works out! We need this! Love you my friend...kisses for Zoey and how is sweet Jaden??

I'm so sorry. :( We have lost SO many friends on this journey... and I don't think I'll ever get over the pain. We are facing the fear of one of our little friends possibly having relapsed (we'll find out next week for sure) and one of the other moms said to me (her son is already gone) "You know Renee, if he doesn't make it, Kennedy will be the only one of our core group left." And she's right. And that makes me SO sad and it scares me. But mostly it breaks my heart. SO many moms out there whose arms are empty. Yes, they have other children, but their arms are still empty... and I just can't imagine. I'll say a prayer for Sol Merie's family tonight.
