Remembering Ava

I have wanted to write since Ava's passing but I couldn't find the words.  Many of you have asked how our family is doing.  Our hearts hurt.  They don't hurt every minute of the day but the pain lingers and rises when we don't expect it to.  

Discovering a present Ava hid under her bed, doing laundry and finding her last bit of dirty clothes and looking at her photos all have caused me to cry and face the loss we all feel without her.  

Her funeral was beautiful.  We found the prettiest pink coffin for her and she was buried with all of her favorite stuffed animals.  She was dressed in all white and her head was adorned with her prettiest princess crown.  

Her daddy gave the euology.  He said, ..."Ava lived her life for every moment and taught us to do the same.  To enjoy the cuddles and quiet times just as much as the laughs and silly moments.  Ava will be forever missed but never forgotten.  Her shining light is now a part of everyone who knew her and we will always treasure that in our hearts."  That is just what we will do.

    Really, really beautiful Cindy. The layout, photos and your words all work together to make just the right ending. I love the Pocahontas quote on here and her memorial card - I often think about it when thoughts of Ava drifts into my head, which is pretty much all the time. It's just so perfect.

  4. I may have missed meeting you and Ms Ava at Ft Hood, but please know I prayed for ya'll. She was a beautiful young lady, and is one of the brightest angels in heaven.
