Hello, precious girl! It's finally spring around here! I think about you often, but especially in the spring. I think about the days I spent with you and your mommy when you were out of the hospital for that short, but wonderful bit of time. I am thinking about the hours I spent holding you and cuddling you and how I just could not get enough of you. One night, I even slept on your bedroom floor! Oh Tanna, I just can't wait to cuddle you again and for eternity--how very sweet that will be!

Hello Precious Girl! I'm just thinking about you so much this week. I have such happy memories of the spring days I visited you and your mommy. How I enjoyed holding you and looking at your sweet face for hours--just could not get enough of you. I wonder if you have had a peek at your 4 little boy cousins; Gramma Net can't get enough of them either! I still miss you, Tanna; and you still make me want to be a better person--more like Jesus--thank you for that. Can't wait to see you!

Just a note to tell you I'm thinking about you on your Grampa Jim's knee. I'm so glad you were there to meet him and welcome him home. Can't wait to join you and all those who you are getting to know in eternity!!! I love you, precious Tanna!

Happy Birthday Precious Granddaughter! Surely four years in heaven are very different from four years here; but the time flies by and we think of the day we will see you again. I think about some of the very special people who love you and now get to tell you so, like Gramma Marj and Grampa Vern. They better be giving you hugs from Papa Jeff and Gramma Net too! We just have to tell you again how very glad we are that you were born and that you are waiting for us in heaven; what a sweet, sweet day it will be when we hold you in our arms again! Bet you already know about your new cousin, Simon; Keely and Sam are "over the moon" (is that close to heaven?) just like we all were when God gave us Tanna to hold for a while and to love forever! Bye for now, sweet girl! Love, Love, Love, Papa Jeff and Gramma Net

Dear little Tanna, Today is another special day that we think of you a little extra! I wish we all had a little more time with you here, but god needed you a little more than we did. I know your mommy misses you oh so much, but someday you will be reunited in the heavens were all is good! You are a piece of good in life we all miss! God bless little angel! Watch over your mommy and family<3

Oh, Tanna. You blessed so many people in such a short time on this earth. Your memory is a beacon on dark days, a welcome shade in the heat of summer. We look forward to meeting you again when our time here is done. It is just taking us longer to accomplish God's will for us, than it took you. Becky Frank

Dearest Tanna, We miss you every day, precious girl. We would not trade one moment we had with you and look forward to being with you again. Knowing you are in heaven, makes heaven that much better, and eases some of the pain of losing you! Thanks to you, we know and trust God more than ever before--we know He knows best!
