Ashlyn’s Angel Year

“We can’t know why the lily has so brief a time to bloom in the warmth of sunlight’s kiss upon its face before it folds into its fragrance and bids the world good night to rest its beauty in a gentler place. But we can know that nothing that is loved is ever lost and no one who has touched a heart can really pass away because some beauty lingers on in each memory of which they’ve been a part.” ~ Ellen Brenneman

:: Fly high, baby girl. ❤ ::

A year ago today a very special princess got her wings. She was only 14 months old when she became an angel. That’s Tatum’s age next month….

Oh, how I ache for Chrissy and Tim. They lost their precious daughter. Why? It’s so cruel and unfair. All of our lives were irrevocably changed.

I will forever cherish the moments I spent holding Ashlyn in my arms as I felt Tatum kicking in my belly. Those chubby cheeks and that sweet smile stay with me. My mind still cannot comprehend this tragedy. And I desperately need to start that process.

    Rest in peace, Ashlyn. ❤
    You are loved, missed, and never forgotten

With infinite love, gratitude, and respect,

I'm blunt and opinionated. Virtually everything I say or do is a contradiction but I'm not a hypocrite. I never hesitate to speak my mind and never fail to leave an impression wherever I go. You love me, you hate me, but you'll never forget me.
