Beautiful Angel 2010-2012

Today was an extremely hard day. I watched a friend say goodbye to her two and a half year old angel. Kaitlin passed away in her sleep on August 9th. I can't even imagine what it must be like for any parent to say goodbye to a young child. I didn't bring enough Kleenex to the services today, and I am glad that I had a mutual friend there to lean on for support for strength to get through it. I hope my friend finds strength in knowing her little girl is at peace.

I will forever see little Kaitlin whenever I see a butterfly, knowing she is watching over her wonderful family. There is a beautiful tribute online that someone made, and I teared up all over again watching it.

no parent should ever have to say goodbye to a child. I can't imagine what that would be like. I know how brutal it is to say goodbye to a parent, a relative, a friend, but never a child. Your friend seems to have a lot of support, but it must be so hard.

My heart goes out to her family and everyone who I'm sure this sweet little angel touched. What a terrible thing to experience. I can't imagine losing a child. I will be saying extra prayers for all tonight.

Thanks so much for the link showing the photos of Kaitlin and her family. She seemed like a very sweet child in a family that loved her very much. My condolences to your friend from here in Virginia. I'm not sure of your religious/spiritual standing, but if you believe in the power of prayer (I do), just keep Kaitlin's family in your prayers and ask God to comfort and guide them.

I'm sooooo sorry for your friend, her family and you. My heart and prayers are with you and her family... I cannot even imagine the pain your friend is going through... Our thoughts are with her and her family today. Thank you for sharing such a private and beautiful angel with us.

it's true--no parent should ever have to say goodbye to their child. i hope that with each passing day it gets a little bit easier to deal with the loss.
