Happy Birthday Marie

Gwen would have been one year old, back in March. You would have been 21 today. You both shared your "0" year - it would have been fun to always know you were the same "ten". So many things would have been fun if you were still here. I'd see you today, on your birthday, when we get into Chatt - it would have been fun!

Lil made up a memory, or maybe it is real - I just don't know - but she said one day, "rmember how Aunt Marie used to say, (and she spoke in sweet, happy voice that I could really hear you saying) "Whooooo ate the cupacke?" So, my plan is to always have cupcakes on your birthday :)

Here's us remembering you and Gwen on May 14th, 2011.


  1. Throughout all this I'm just so grateful you've chosen to share so much, so beautifully. Love is beautiful, even in grief. It is plain to see the ones you miss....are loved. Thank you for will mean so much more to see Gwen in your arms in Heaven now that I've been a witness to how you mourn and long. Come quickly, Lord Jesus.

  2. Beautiful pictures Laura, what a beautiful place! Thank you for sharing your day with us.

  3. What a beautiful video and photos from your day. Thank you for sharing a piece of May 14th with us. We love you and think of you daily. And, Lil is just so precious and sweet; I love seeing her smiling face.


Ten years loom and as always seems to be the case, I find myself struggling the most in the days ahead of the anniversary  - be it her birt...
