The plans we made, the trip complete, we now are back where Leanna sleeps.
The family together, the journey is done, the time was great but we were missing one.
The one so special, courageous and strong, we have been without Her, it seems so long.
It's been fourteen weeks since She went away, we miss her each and every day.
Walking down the Garden path
Pine cones fall at my feet,
They lead me to the marble niche
Where our Leanna sleeps.
Thinking of the plans we made
It seems so long ago
And now it's time for us to go,
We will miss her so.
"They" say time heals all wounds. I don't know who "they" are but as we approach three months I can confidently say "they" are VERY wrong!! It is still so very hard to believe you are gone! It still amazes me how incredibly courageous and strong you were! I am grateful that you did not have to suffer any more...BUT there isn't a single goes day that goes by that I don't think about you and am reminded how much I MISS YOU and LOVE YOU!!!
Every day I think about you. Today I remember you as a beautiful, happy, smiling bride. I will never forget your wedding day, as that was the day we became sisters. I miss you with all of my heart Leanna and will remember you as my sister always. xoxo

What a wonderful day it was
With a Beautiful Bride
And a Handsome Groom
Who were both so much in love.
They had ten wonderful years to share
Their love would strengthen and grow
And then an added blessing of
A bouncing Baby Boy.
We have these golden memories
Of happier days that are gone
And thinking of them often
Will help us carry on.
