A little bit...

Softly the leaves of memory fall
Gently I gather and treasure them all.
Unseen, unheard, you are always near.
So missed, so loved, so very dear.
No longer in our lives to share.
But in our hearts you're always there.
~unknown~

I talk about me after Eva all the time. I just wanted to share a little bit of the life of the little girl we miss so much.

Here is the video we played at her funeral. Listen to the lyrics when you watch the video, they mean alot to us.

Eva was one of the happiest, sparkliest little babies you ever met. She was and will always be our little princess.

  3. I watched the video, Em, and oh, my goodness, Eva was a beautiful, beautiful child. What lovely, big, blue eyes, and such a sweet face. You have a gorgeous family altogether, and it's obvious you all love each other so much. I know you miss Eva terribly, and I wish she was here in your arms, alive and happy. What a bright, shining light of a person she looked to be.

    I just don't understand why this has to happen and it tears me up, but know that I'm holding you and Eva in my heart and sending lots of love to you and your family. xo

    1. Thanks for watching Missing Molly. I was inspired to put it on after watching your memorial video for Baby Molly and also one by Kate for Baby Joseph. We had already made it but I hesitated about posting it on my blog. Now I'm glad I did.

      Thank you for watching. Yes we do treasure every memory we have of her. Your comment about tresuring memories prompted me to put on a little poem someone gave us at her funeral. I have added it to the top of this post
