CS Lewis once said that "grief is like the sky, it covers everything." In recent weeks, our family has found that this is so very true. It seems that there is no right or wrong way to travel this path of grief. I have created this blog in hopes that some day we will be able to look back on our journey and see written proof that our great God never leaves us. God is good all the time.

And the child must know that since the beginning of the
world, there has not been, and until the end of the
world there will not be, another child like her. 
Pablo Casals

In case anyone ever wondered how loved our Laynee is.  Her grave site is testimony of a child deeply loved, cherished, treasured. She has the most adorned grave in the entire cemetary.    There are so many tokens of love that there is barely room for anything more.  Jim and I and the kids put many things there but  I do not know who brings some of the items.  It doesn't matter. The only thing that matters is the depth of love that she brought to the lives of so many.   Someone wrote in large letters in the snow    
"Laynee , You are so loved!"   And she is.
