It will be the little things
that you will remember,
the quiet moments,
the smiles, the laughter.
And although it may seem
hard right now,
it will be the memories
of these little things
that help to push
away the pain
and bring the smiles
back again.

Ellen, Coty and Catlin,
I am so sorry for your loss. All 3 of you have been on my mind so much this week. Each timme I have thought of you, I have asked God to wrap his loving arms around you, and for him to hold you as only he can. I have prayed for him to bring you comfort and peace. I know I have no idea of what you are going through, but i want you to know that I have truely hurt for you. I hope it helps in some way knowing that others care, and love you. Ellen if you need anything, you know where to find me. I will not be able to be there Friday, but my heart and prayers will be with you and your kids. I Love You Girl!!
