Lily Cate Love

AGE: 7 • Eastchester

Lily Cate Love, of Eastchester, NY, died April 23, 2016 in Valhalla, NY. She was 7 years old. Lily was born on August 15, 2008 in Greenwich Hospital, cherished daughter of Albert "Chip" and Donna Love and loving sister Olivia Grace. Lily attended the second grade at Greenvale Elementary School in Eastchester and loved drawing and art, soccer, swimming, golf and tennis.

Chip and Donna, while I never met Lily, as a father and knowing how much you loved and love Lily, my heart breaks for you...and please know you are in our family's prayers. I know you'll see her again someday. Good bless you and your family.

How short is life? Never long enough-- but when I see the passing of a 7 year old baby girl, my heart just stops for a second. And within that second, I can feel the horror of what the family has gone through. I did not know this child, but the moment I saw her photo, it was like getting a punch in the gut. What a beautiful girl. As a father who has become a widower, if anything like this swooped down on my only child and took her from me...that would ensure that I would have no strength to carry on. God bless you guys and I am very sorry for your loss. Good luck. It will get better.

Donna and Chip,
it took a while for me to write this - the news of Lily's death has bee such a shock. I got the idea to name my daughter Lily after I saw your precious baby girl - and I could not imagine what you must be going through losing her. Please know that while we have not met her very often we are grieving for her and you and your family are in our thoughts and prayers. A big hug from Anne, Stephen, Max and Lily Jensen

Chip, Donna and Olivia I am so sad to hear about your darling Lily. I remember sitting behind Chip in church one Sunday a couple years ago and he was holding Lily. She had her head on his shoulder and fell asleep and was so peaceful and adorable in her Daddy's arms. It was such a site to see her so relaxed in Chips arms. I hope you can find peace in all the beautiful memories of your beautiful angel. My thoughts and prayers are with you.

I have been thinking of both of you ongoing since I heard of your loss over the week-end. I never had the opportunity to meet Lily, but I know what a special girl she must have been with two wonderful parents like the two of you. I am so sorry for your loss, and words could never explain how I feel for you and your entire extended family at this time.

I first met Lily in Sunday school class in Kindergarten. She was shy, quiet but always smiling. She could be found closet to her big sister and always near to her parents.
I remember one holiday last year how you and your family went to see a matinee show and how you were all dressed up in your sparkly shoes and clothes.
I also remember you when we all first met Pastor Pete. Pete was kidding around with the Love sisters and it was so sweet. How he made you feel at ease and you were both giggling and responding to him.
Lily we miss you and love you but are sure that you are with Jesus at Peace.
love
