Happy Heavenly Birthday, Savannah!!!

I am so inadequate when it comes to these things. Eloquence is not one of my strengths. But I know I will regret it if I don't record my thoughts of Sweet Savannah on what would have been her eighth birthday.

She passed away two weeks ago today. The Lord needed her home and she very graciously fought the fight to the end.

I am so grateful for the lessons she taught me and my family. She is beautiful inside and out, a princess to all who knew her, and best of all, a precious daughter of God and an instrument in His hands. She had a very special mission on earth, and continues that mission in a far holier place. We will miss her eyes, her smile and her laughter. I feel honored to have known her. We love you so much, Savannah. Happy Heavenly Birthday!!!!

What a powerful blog!! I'm so sorry to hear you've lost your daughter. I send my condolences to your family. My brother, Roch and his wife lost their unborn baby boy last year. They have four daughters-and their one son, also with Heavenly Father. It was a painfully hard time for them-but better now because of the gospel.

*My husband grew up in Barharbor, ME. When we met-he had the strongest accent :)

The sweet little girl who died was actually the daughter of our friends. She died after a three year battle with cancer.
I will gladly send your condolences on to them. They are beautiful people and an example to us all.
