Erin’s 2nd birthday

A few days before Kristen’s (& Erin’s) birthday, my husband sent me 6 pink roses accompanied by a handwritten note. Words cannot express how much that meant to me. There are times when he doesn’t want to talk about “it”. But, to know that my husband missed Erin, and acknowledged that it was her birthday too, was great comfort.

Dear Sandy,

Thanks for taking such good care of Erin during the brief nine months that we had her. Her life, thanks to you, was free of pain, fear, and loneliness. Instead, she experienced comfort, security and companionship.

If she didn’t know then how much we loved her, she does now.

We miss her, but she is rejoicing with the Lord and someday we’ll hold her again.
