Larry C, no words can ease your pain.  My prayers are with you and your family in your sorrow.  And a big thank you for donating part of her so others may have more life.  She will live on and on....   ME

No words do I have to express the sorrow I feel for you and your family at this time. Please accept my sincere condolences as I continue to include you all in my prayers.
May you be well and find strength to endure this tragedy together
My love to you

I know I'm gone from the pages for days/weeks at a time, but that doesn't mean that everyone here isn't like family to me. I often read much more than I reply to due to time constrants and health problems. I've read everyone of your posts for Ginger and each brough tears to my eyes. No one should have to live longer than their child. God bless you and your family and see you through this unimaginable time.

I thought this might bring some small comfort to you, it remains one of my favorites

To Remember Me

    The day will come when my body will lie upon a white sheet neatly tucked under four corners of a mattress located in a hospital busily occupied with the living and the dying. At a certain moment a doctor will determine that my brain has ceased to function and that, for all intents and purposes, my life has stopped.
    When that happens, do not attempt to instill artificial life into my body by the use of a machine. And don't call this my death bed. Let it be called the Bed of Life, and let my body be taken from it to help others lead fuller lives.
    Give my sight to the man who has never seen a sunrise, a baby's face or the love in the eyes of a woman. Give my heart to a person whose own heart has caused nothing but endless days of pain. Give my blood to the teenager who was pulled from the wrekage of his car, so that he might live to see his grandchildren play. Give my kidneys to one who depends on a machine to exist from week to week. Take my bones, every muscle, every fiber and nerve in my body and find a way to make a crippled child walk.
    Explore every corner of my brain. Take my cells, if necessary, and let them grow so that someday, a speechless boy will shout at the crack of a bat and a deaf girl will hear the soud of rain against her window.
    Burn what is left of me and scatter the ashes to the winds to help the flowers grow.
    If you must bury something, let it be my faults, my weaknesses and all prejudice against my fellow man.
    Give my sins to the devil. Give my sould to God.
    If, by chance, you wish to remember me, do it with a kind deed or word to someone who needs you. If you do all I have askes, I will live forever.
          ~Robert N. Test

I have been an avid fan of yours for awhile and while I don't reply, it doesn't mean I don't read. I was gone during this awful time for you and I am so sorry for the loss of your daughter. I can't even express how deeply this touches me. I have you and your family in our thoughts and prayers. Sincerely felt condolences to you and your family. Shawna
