Wanted to stop by and say "Hello" and pray you are well and getting thru each day. Time may pass but yesterday's are always with us. Our "Angels" always near. I do find there are times I need to take a break, but miss our "angels" we pray for. Each night I continue to light my candle and pray for your "angel Rachel", always on my mind, never to be forgotton.
On Sept. 16th many of us will be walking for the 2nd time for the "jimmyfundwalk" in Boston. I will be walking in Honor of your Rachel alongside our "silly jilly". Rachel will be part of our walk every year. I make buttons of Jillian and with your permission I would like to make a button for Rachel. You can send your favorite pic and I will print it up and every year Rachel's button will be worn. WE are known as the "Button people", I get totally carried away! Many people have walked for Jillian in other states, supporting her memory and family so this year I plan to do more, walk for many others, no matter how old or young (which is the worst). So I would like to add your beautiful daughter to my list of "angels" so they know they are never forgotton and the parents of these precious children know others care and remember "Rachel's" brave story and journey.
Rachel's site is beautiful! I can't seem to get Jilly's site to glitter. If you have any info on how to do this I would be appreciative and pleased of course. Have to get the glitter to sparkle as these "angel's" of ours made our lives sparkle.
I pray you are getting through the days and your sadness eases somewhat. It's been 27 months since Jilly departed and there are days it feels like yesterday. I know the pain will never go away, the tears always there I just pray between the tears you have laughter (Jilly's Mom, Deb taught me this so long ago and it helps.) And always I am sorry your "sweet girl" had to depart too. I am always sorry for your pain and I promise you when I am away from my computer our "angel's" are always close by. I hope they met and that someday we will be reunited with the "girls" we love so much and miss :)
Always in my thoughts & prayers:
Love Donna "silly jillys" Godmom ox
