|Let the memory of Cara be with us forever|
"The first year the hardest.
The loss of children is a pain all bereaved parents share, and it is a degree of suffering that is impossible to grasp without experiencing it first hand. Often, when we know someone else is experiencing grief, our discomfort keeps us from approaching it head on. But we want the world to remember our child or children, no matter how young or old our child was.
If you see something that reminds you of my child, tell me. If you are reminded at the holidays or on her birthday that I am missing my daughter, please tell me you remember her. And when I speak her name or relive memories relive them with me, don't shrink away. If you never met my daughter, don't be afraid to ask about her. One of my greatest joys is talking about CARA."
"Daughters are a source of immeasurable joy for her parents. Long before a daughter is born, she is deeply loved. Daughters are often a mother's best friend, her ally, and her most precious treasure. For a father, a daughter is often the apple of his eye, his princess. It is no surprise then, that a parent's love for a daughter is so intense and selfless. For this reason, the loss of a daughter can bring on a range of difficult emotions including numbness, guilt, anger, emptiness, disbelief and deep sadness. Happy birthday sweet Angel"
"Death is rarely welcomed whether a loved one has lived many years or one that seems as brief as a passing shadow (Psalm 144:4). We look forward to God's promise of restoring the earth to a paradise, where sickness and death will be things of the past, and even those now dead will be resurrected! (Isaiah 33: 24, John 11: 43, 44, & Revelation 21:3 & 4). Till these trustworthy promises are fulfilled may cherished memories of her life, love and laughter, keep Ms. Cara "alive” in your hearts. I am deeply sorry for your loss."
