Heartbroken.

My sweet cousin Katie died tonight.

I am so very sad. Even though I trust that Katie is in the arms of our Heavenly Father and is suffering no more, this is such a tremendous loss.

Katie was a precious little girl. Please pray for her family.

Oh Eloise! I am lifting you and your entire family up tonight! I am so saddened by this news. However, as you said Katie is in a better place. She will never again be in pain! She can run free and do everything her tumor would not allow her to do and most importantly she will live forever in the arms of our Father! She will be waiting for her family and run to them someday, but for now I knwo she is similing down on you all!!

My heart is so heavy for you all. She had such a pure and beautiful smile. I pray that solace will come to her parents, though I know too well how much time that takes. May little Katie's undying love abide with your family. May you feel angels about you, holding you up. I do believe that families can be together forever, that life goes on after this life. I mourn with and for you Eloise. I think of her parents, and it almost takes my breath away, remembering the seemingly unbearable pain. I wish that I could bear some of their pain for them. It is such a lonely journey for a parent to embark on. I am so very sorry. So sorry for all of you.

So, so sorry Eloise. Even the knowledge that Katie now rests in the arms of God doesn't remove the sorrow of her loss. My prayers are with you and your whole family, particularly Katie's parents and siblings.

I am so sorry for your loss. But you are right she is with God and is no longer suffering. Unfortunately, knowing that doesn't always make the loss any easier. I will be praying for your family.

Oh my goodness. My heart is breaking. There is something so wrong about a child dying. Seems un natural. I know God has made her an angel for you. I am so sorry. I will pray for you, both your families.
