Thank you and candle lighting

post #1 of 10
Thread Starter 

I want to first express my deepest gratitude and love to you all. In the hospital last week I had my mil print your responses to my post on Bryce. On Bryce's last day I curled up around him. The social worker read your responses out loud to me. Your thoughts and prayers lulled me to sleep. Thank you for those moments of healing in my darkest hours.

I also wanted to share this with you

Hi everyone-
Thanks for all of your encouragement and support. It
means the world to Michael and me. Here's something
very simple we can all do to remember not only Bryce
but every child who has been lost.

Candy and Michael

Oh Candy... I cry for you each day. My prayers and thoughts are with you. Of course, I will be lighting a candle for Bryce tomorrow, in memory of his very special life.

I will also be lighting a candle, and I will forward this on to everyone on my e-mail list immediately. What a precious, still moment you have to remember from Bryce's last day here on Earth....you were a magnificient mommy to him and you've embraced him with so much love as he had to leave this world.

We lit our candle last night. And have lit them again this morning.

Candy, please know you and Michael and Bryson are in my thoughts and prayers. I think of you all many, many, many times throughout my day and I offer a prayer in your names each time, praying for peace and strength and love on this staggering, heartbreaking journey. I am so sorry.

Baby Bryce has left an amazing legacy. Such a precious soul he is.

Much love to you Candy.
