ThAnK yOu!!!

Thank you for your phone calls, messages, e-mails, unexpected visits, notes, thoughts and prayers for us today. We've been told that the first year is always the hardest.....and I believe it. Today was a beautiful, special day as we were able to reflect upon Kate's little life and the many things that she taught us. How grateful we are to have the knowledge that Families are Forever! We love you Baby Girl!!!

This was the last picture we had of little Kate.....Sweet Girl!

I hope you are doing well. You are in my thoughts.

Thank goodness for the knowledge of eternal families. It doesn't take the pain away, but it helps us make it through these trials of being separated from our perfect angels.

Marcae, when we were in college I remember thinking how much fun you were and what an awesome person. I truly think you have just continued to grow into something amazing. You are such an inspiration and even though we don't see each other, I really do love you and think about you all the time. If you are ever down in St. George or Cedar, please give me a call!

I know that I sent you the email a day early and so I hope your were not offended. I had wished I was able to meet your sweet daughter, but what a joyous time it will be when we get re-united with them!
I am glad that your day was peaceful.
(Hugs)

What a hard day it must have been. We thought about you all day yesterday and don't know if Jeff ended up calling you guys or not. Jeff said that would be cool to have our little baby on Baby Kate's day. If we did he suggested we name our little one Brighton Kate in honor of you guys and all that we learned about loving and caring for the gifts our Father in Heaven gives to us. We love you guys and think the world of you. We would love to plan on Saturday if that day still works for you. We have been slow to getting back because the doctor scared us into the fact that we were going to have it early, but she seems to be taking her own sweet time so that should work. Just let us know and we'll find a sitter. Thinking of You!!

We love you guys and are always thinking of you. Marcae, you amaze me with your strength, what a wonderful mother you are and how blessed to have such beautiful girls -- little angel Kate was such a special girl to all who knew her and how joyous that day will be when you will be with her again.

I've been thinking about you guys and little Kate this week. That little one was loved by all of us who were lucky enough to know her. I'm so grateful to have had her and you all in my life! Loves to you all!

I've been thinking of you. I couldn't remember the exact date, but I will never forget that day in Dr. Melendez' office when I came out with little Ruby and saw you guys. My heart just broke for you. But I was so excited to see familiar faces--and not just ANY familiar face. Pretty much like family. We moved the next day up here to WA and I was so glad to see you before we left. I just love you guys so much. You are so wonderful and really--Heavenly Father knew that He could trust you two as parents to such a sweet spirit. He knew that you would take better care of her than anyone and give her the love she needed before she returned back home to Him. I just can't wait until we can see all these precious spirits (young and old) again! How they are missed.
