Some Heartfelt Thank Yous

I would like to say thank you to a few people who have done some very nice things for us.

First, of all a big thank you to our parents who have graciously asked to pay for Carleigh's funeral expenses. We are so very grateful for this wonderful gesture of love as it as lightened a load off of our shoulders.

Thank you to my Aunt Becky and Uncle Buck for the picture. It is absolutely beautiful and so is the poem. It is currently still in the box but we would like to display it at her service first and then hang it in our home. Below is a copy of the print and the poem.
Child of Heaven

Child of heaven come to earth
You just could not stay
This world could not hold you
And so soon you went away.

Like a rare and precious rose
Your lovely soul can't die
Budded here upon the earth
Now it will bloom on high.

You are a child of heaven
And will forever lie
In the arms of Jesus
For all eternity.

Thank you to my Aunt Sherry and Uncle Doug and family for the statue. It is a mother holding a child with angel wings. It is also put away for now until later. We haven't decided yet whether to put it in our flower garden or by her grave.

Thank you to my best friend Lindsey and her husband, Jarrod. They have purchased Carleigh's hospital outfit that I wrote about in the previous post. What a surprise and blessing!

Thank you to several mommies who are members of Cafemom and to some of their family. Jennifer (honeyj2) is going to have her mother-in-law knit a hat for Carleigh as she makes baby hats for the local hospital. Megan (Meg1129), along with the help of her mother-in-law, is making a baby blanket for Carleigh. Dawn (bakersd79) is making a tutu for Kyndra for my maternity photos next month. Kathryn (Kat770) is crocheting different sized preemie hats for Carleigh. These women are extremely generous as they are doing all of this for us free of charge!
Here is the tutu that Dawn made (extremely fast might I add!). It's so beautiful and I love it!

THANK YOU everyone! We appreciate your kindness so much!!

What a lot of caring, generous friends you have, Holly! I just wanted to let you know that I got the tutu packaged up and will be putting it in the mail tomorrow.

Buck is writing a piece for you. He expresses his thoughts so much better than I could ever hope to do. I found the picture at the Christian Bookstore and knew that had to get it for you.

This stuff is amazing Holly! I was going to offer to do maternity pictures since you're not far away, but I'm glad to see someone is doing them for you!! I check in on your constantly and pray for you everyday! I'm so moved at all the amazing people around you.

That tutu is so cute!!

Is there a way I can get your folks' address on CM or my email so I can send a blanket I'm crocheting?
